No-rinse cleanser that lifts away impurities, makeup, and dead skin cells without over-drying / 4 oz
Luzern Labs Urban Protect Micellar Cleansing Water is one of those products that made us jump up and down when we heard that it was launching. We adore micellar waters. They remove makeup and mineral sunscreen using micelles, microscopic spheres that float in the water; used in conjunction with cotton pads, these micelles act like a magnet, attracting and sweeping away oil, makeup, and dirt smoothly and easily. Micellar waters are simple and easy to use, and they’re a great first step in a double-cleansing routine — particularly for easily-congested skin that doesn’t love oil cleansers and those in hot, sticky climates.
Luzern’s Urban Protect version is unique in that it’s been designed specifically for those who live in urban environments where skin is more likely to be encountering the aging effects of pollution. The non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic formula features ingredients that speed the removal of dead skin cells (great for clogged, breakout-prone complexions) as well as natural mineral detoxifiers that quell inflammation (lovely for sensitive skin). It leaves skin looking and feeling clean, comfortable, and fresh. Oh, and due to the cucumber seed oil in the formula, it smells like Jolly Ranchers, which is kind of fun.
If you’re using this before a very active product containing retinol or alpha hydroxy acids, we recommend rinsing first, especially if you have sensitive skin. Otherwise, swipe an Urban Protect Micellar Cleansing Water-soaked cotton pad over your skin and blithely carry on with your skincare routine.
How to Use
While you can use it *around* your eyes, and our testers have, take care to keep it out of your eyes since it contains exfoliating ingredients that could be irritating to your peepers.
- Pumpkin enzyme ferment speeds the removal of dead skin cells to reveal brighter, fresher-looking skin
- Sambucus Nigra flower extract tones and soothes
- Magnesium, zinc, and copper are natural detoxifiers that also quell inflammation
