I’m very keen on Micellar Cleansing Waters, so when Garnier added their version to the market, I couldn’t wait to try it. I have also been trying their new eye make-up remover alongside the water as well.
For the past 3 weeks I have been religiously using this water, morning and night, after a previous micellar water had run out.
If you are not aware what a micellar water is; it’s basically a water based makeup remover, the water is suspended with oil droplets, which dissolve the makeup, grime, dirt and oils. I found this one to be very gentle on the skin, it’s gentle enough to use on the eye area as well, although I have been using the accompanying eye make up remover instead for this. If you use too much, it does foam up a little. It cuts through makeup easily and skin feels refreshed, soft and clean. I have very sensitive, easily irritated skin and it definitely suits my skin type. It doesn’t really smell of anything, if anything there’s a very subtle medicated scent. It claims to last for 200 uses; I’m not sure if this is accurate, as I have used twice a day now for 3 weeks and only have 1/3 of the bottle left.
I do really like this, and would buy again, very similar to Bioderma, a great alternative.
I’m also loving the eye makeup remover as well. It’s really gentle, removes everything and has a pleasant smell. Both are a definite must at the moment.
Garnier’s Micellar Water is currently on a special offer at £3.33 from Boots. However they are currently out of stock, Superdrug have it in stock for £4.99. Still very cheap.
The eye makeup remover is £2.33 from Boots, normally £3.50.
