Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water


Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water review

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water review

Sorry if you're all fed up with the countless micellar cleansing water posts across the Internet, but I've been using this one by Garnier for a while now and thought it was about time I shared my thoughts. If we used to think BB creams were infiltrating the market then these all-in-one, no-water-necessary cleansers seem to be an equally invasive relation.

So the question is - are they worth the hype? If you prefer gentle cleansing, I'm going to say yes. This Garnier offering is quick, very easy and seems to remove all makeup (including eye) with the help of one or two cotton pads. I always prefer the feeling of washing my face with cleanser and water, however, so I like to wipe a cotton pad of this micellar water over my face after cleansing to pick up any of the makeup that the cleanser missed. A lot of the time I'm surprised - and a little disgusted - with how much it manages to pick up, even after cleansing.

I find this micellar water has a similar effect to using a face wipe except it's a fraction of the price. I bought this 400ml bottle a few months ago for £4.99 in Boots and I've only used up half of it. I also find face wipes can sting my eyes when removing eye makeup, whereas I've had no problems with stinging while using this. My one complaint is that as an eye makeup remover there are definitely some more effective ones out there. I find the gentle formula makes removing certain mascaras a struggle, so I'll sometimes need to use two cotton pads if I've whacked a lot on my lashes that day. 

Considering the price, I'm pretty impressed. I'll always prefer the feeling of a freshly washed and exfoliated face, but this seems like a good back up cleanser to have around. Have you tried Garnier's Micellar Cleansing Water, or any other micellar water? What did you think?
