So I wanted to do a review on one of my favourite skincare products,
Garnier Micellar Water!
For those who are not familiar with Micellar water, it is a skincare product that removes makeup and cleanses the skin without needing to rinse your face.
Micelles are an active cleansing ingredient which act as a magnet to capture impurities, make-up and sebum on the skin without vigorous rubbing.
Micellar cleansing waters have been very popular lately, I believe the trend started with the Bioderma Micellar Water, which I personally have not tried.
To use the micellar water you just apply a small amount to a cotton pad and wipe over face, focusing on areas where makeup is more heavy like eyes and lips for longer.
I personally like to wet two cotton pads and hold them onto my eyes for about 20 seconds before wiping away any makeup.
Then I wipe the cotton pad across my eye area to remove any excess.
The Micellar water lifts all the eye makeup off of my eyes
Before and after – Left eye makeup has been removed, right still has makeup on.
The Garnier Micellar water is a cheap alternative to the Bioderma cleansing water at half the price, you can pick it up from Supermarkets (woolworths and Coles) and most pharmacies in Australia (Priceline and Chemist Warehouse etc.) for about $12.99. However you can sometimes get it cheaper on sale. The size it comes in is 400ml which is a very generous amount. And it is definitely worth every penny!
I love this product because you can use it on your eyes and lips and it is fragrance free and therefore is so gentle on your eyes, it doesn’t sting and burn my eyes when I am taking my heavy eye makeup off at the end of the day.
It is light and doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy or oily or tight and dry.
And it literally just lifts the makeup and takes it away so easily, it’s amazing. No rubbing is required which my skin really appreciates because otherwise it gets red, sore and irritated.
I only have one negative about this product and that is that I’m almost out of it and I love it too much that I use it all the time, I am gonna have to go buy some more soon. They should make a one litre bottle
It doesn’t have a strong scent to it and is fragrance free which is good for people that get irritated by fragrances.
It is nice light and refreshing cooling on your face which is good as it doesn’t leave any residue, meaning you can save time by not needing to rinse it off.
I definitely recommend this product! I love this Micellar water and it works great for me to help remove my makeup before cleansing my face.
It’s a great product to take with you if your going somewhere overnight or for a couple of days and want something to quickly and efficiently take off your makeup at the end of the day or for in the morning to freshen your face. If you don’t have access to running water to wash and cleanse your face properly then this is a great alternative.
Although suitable for all skintypes it was specially formulated for sensitive skin.
It is also Dermatologically and Ophthalmologically tested.
I will definitely be purchasing this product again and again.
It seriously is a great product and I think everyone should try it!
If you have used this product yourself I would love to hear about your experience and opinion on it. Leave me a comment below.
I wish you all a fantastic week!
