Unlike standard rise off cleansers our non drying Anti-Ageing Micellar Water with Desert Lime has been formulated with moisturising fatty acid esters to hydrate and nourish skin, keeping the skin barrier intact. A simple and gentle cleansing alternative to harsh face wipes and alcohol based toners and astringents.


Sensitive, acne-prone and mature skin take note: this gentle micellar cleanser with native Australian Desert Lime extract is a game-changer, working like a mini sponge to gently mop up dirt and makeup without removing the natural oils on the skin surface. Read more about Micellar Water and Desert Lime.

Key ingredients:

  • Micelles: Tiny balls of oil molecules that are suspended in soft water to gently draw out impurities without drying out the skin or disrupting pH levels.
  • Native Australian Desert Lime extract: Rich in potent antioxidants and phytonutrients, this superfruit stimulates collagen, protects from UVA/B damaging light, reduces pigmentation and skin redness, improves skin hydration and even helps to reduce dark circles and under-eye puffiness.


  • Removes an entire face of makeup without leaving any oily residue behind.
  • As well as cleansing, it also nourishes the skin thanks to the anti-ageing, anti-pollution benefits of native Australian Desert Lime.
  • The no-rinse formula is perfect for travel, post-workout, cleaning makeup brushes, camping or visiting places where no running water is accessible.


  • Place some micellar water on a cotton pad and wipe over the face to remove makeup, dirt and grime.
  • There is no need to wash your face – you can follow with serum and moisturiser.
  • Best stored in a cool dark place.

Let’s get technical.

Micellar water is basically a cleansing water made up of 2 essential ingredients-

  • Water or H₂O and
  • Surfactant/s (a substance that reduces the surface tension of a liquid in which it is dissolved)

How does a surfactant work and why add it to water?

Oil (such as sebum) and water usually repel each other as oil is a non-polar substrate and water a polar substrate (think about what happens when you place like poles of 2 magnets together……they repel each other. So to help water and oil stick together and form an emulsion we need to add a surfactant/s.

Surfactants are made up of 2 parts.

  1. A hydrophilic head (meaning its attracted to water)
  2. hydrophobic tail (meaning it repels water and attracts oil).

When surfactants are added to water they assemble themselves into clusters called micelles. These clusters are spherical in shape and resemble a pin cushion with the tails of the surfactant/s meeting together in the middle of the ball and the heads assembling around the perimeter.

Pouring micellar water onto a cotton pad results in the rearrangement of micelles out from their spherical orientation and into a monolayer with their heads buried into the cotton pad (a polar substrate) and their tails in the air.

When the cotton pad is the swiped across skin, excess sebum (oil), dirt and make up (non polar substrates) are attracted to and bind with the tails of surfactants, allowing them to be absorbed and swept away.

    I have been using Claire Hill for nearly eight weeks and I’m in love. It’s by far the best skin care product I have ever used. It’s the first time I have had skincare that hasn’t made my skin flare up or break out and it is the easiest to use. I actually look forward to using it twice a day! My favourite would be the serum as it is super light and non-greasy.. I’ve always steered away from serums as they made my skin really oily but this one is divine! Thank you Loretta Hill for creating such a wonderful product 🙌🏻

    I highly recommend all 3 products. Been using for a few months now and my skin is so nourished and my skin is looking more youthful. Love the idea of not needing too many products to see the results I’m seeing.

    I have recently purchased the Micellar cleansing water and I really love how it has no fragrance and how clean and fresh it makes my skin feel! I love all the Claire Hill products I would highly recommend to them! Love love love 🙂

    I cannot recommend this highly enough. I purchased the serum and moisturiser and received this for free and am I glad I did!!! I have been completely converted. This stuff is amazing not only does it remove EVERY ounce of my makeup and dirt and grime it doesn’t hurt my eyes or burn my skin. I am totally in love. I even cleaned my skin with my normal cleanser and followed up with the Micellar water and was beyond impressed that removed all that my cleanser hadn’t. Followed up with Serum and Moisteriser and I am in heaven. I am only about two weeks in and already having many compliments on my skin.

    After months of seeing Micellar water dominating the shelves of pharmacies, beauty salons and social media I had to see what this craze was all about and why it’s still running so strong. I’ve tried and tested many skin care brands over the years but decided to stick with my favourite new Aussie skin care label Claire Hill and I am completely obsessed! This Micellar water gets it just right for my sensitive skin which is easily prone to irritation. No redness or tingling ? I use the product after I have cleansed to remove all my excess make up. Mascara included!!!! I also use the product in the morning as part of my beauty routine simply because I just love how it leaves me feeling fresh-faced and refreshed. The only negative about this product is that it’s so good my husband keeps stealing it! Time to order a his and hers bottle!
