"Micellar Water Facial Cleanser and Makeup Remover for Combination Skin"
From product name
WIMJ summary for cleansing

This product works by removing dirt and oil from the surface of the skin. It uses a combination of mild cleansing agents (disodium cocoamphodiacetate, hexylene glycol, poloxamer 184) and should be able to cleanse the skin gently. Still keep in mind that any cleansing can disrupt the skin barrier, and most people do not need to cleanse their skin more than once per day.

What does the product description say?
"The gentle yet effective formula sweeps away makeup, dirt, oil, SPF and dead skin cells, leaving skin feeling smooth and prepped for the next steps in your skincare routine."
WIMJ summary for exfoliation

This product does not contain effective exfoliating ingredients. It might be able to deliver physical exfoliation, that is scrub off some of the dead cells on the surface of the skin. We do not recommend physical exfoliation, because it is not uniform (some bits of skin can get exfoliated too much while others not at all). It can also traumatize the skin and aggrevate acne and other skin conditions.
