Micellar Water for your hair!


💦 w h a t t h e w h a t ? ? ? 💦

I love micellar water! I use it to remove makeup, clean my brushes and remove the glue from my faux lashes!

I was super excited when I saw that Pantene had released a Micellar Water Shampoo and a Micellar Water Conditioner, I obviously had to try both...um...like...today!

🎯 TARGET 🎯 $10 each for 530ml size. {That is the big un!}

💦 Factual tid•bits 👉 Micellar water is a cult-favorite skin cleanser originated in France and couldn't be easier to use. It deeply cleanses the skin without stripping away hydration. It is a water, after all and a no rinse formula. So...easy•peasy lemon squeezy! 🍋

💦 and...more factual stuff 👉 Micellar water is a water (obvi) that contains tiny oil particles called micelles that penetrate deep within the skin and suck out dirt, oil, old makeup, and other makeup like a vacuum from deep within your pores.

Now...Micellar Water Shampoo wouldn't work the same as regular micellar water. You must certainly rinse it out, so at best, I was hoping for a deep clean that wouldn't strip my hair of hydration...the same result I expect from the skincare variety.


{Pantene's iteration of Micellar Water also contains Pro-Vitamin B5, the brand's iconic hydrating ingredient, and antioxidants. It's silicone-free, paraben-free and dye-free (which my highlighted hair was very thankful for). It's also pH balanced, so the natural state of your hair and scalp won't be disturbed.}

🚿 A little goes a long way with this product...one pump will do ya! 🛁 It lathers up and is über sudsy. The directions say to wet hair and work thoroughly through and on the scalp too. It felt like I just shampooed my hair {as it should}. My hair didn't feel dried out as I would expect from a deep-cleaning drug store shampoo.

💧 The next step was to nourish hair with Micellar conditioner. I used one pump because my hair is only shoulder length. {If your hair is rather thirsty or long, use a few pumps to properly hydrate your strands.} I applied the majority of the product to the ends of my hair, then worked up to my scalp.

When I eventually rinsed, my hair was left hydrated and smooth, but super lightweight and fluffy. It felt weightless, which practically never happens after conditioning with NON SALON products.

{I do love my salon products!} 🛍

🖤💦 THE VERDICT: 👩‍⚖️

I have to say i am IMPRESSED!!


Normally, when I cleanse my hair this deeply, I'm left a little frizzy. If I hydrate intensely, my hair tends to be weighed down. However, I managed to get the best of both worlds through the ✨ magic ✨ of micellar water.

💦 If you have oily, fine hair {like myself}, I highly recommend giving the Pantene Micellar Water Shampoo and Conditioner a try!! 💁‍♀️

P.S. It also comes in an 🌿 aloe 🌿version too!
