Review/First Impressions: Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water


This week I picked up Garnier's "Micellar Cleansing Water" while it was 30% off (around $8). Micellar cleansing water is basically an oil free, very gentle makeup remover. The reason I picked this up is because I have always wanted to try Bioderma's cleansing water but I am yet to justify spending a whopping $29.99 at Priceline. Hopefully Garnier will deliver a similar product with a better price tag! I was a little skeptical about this Garnier product as almost every toner/cleanser from Garnier I've tried has broken me out. I have to say.... I really love this product! I have sensitive eyes and any oil based makeup remover I've tried somehow always gets into my eyes and makes removing my makeup a less than enjoyable experience. This I am very pleased to say hasn't irritated my skin or eyes whatsoever. I used 2 cotton rounds to remove each eyes makeup with little rubbing. It has removed all of my makeup (I don't wear waterproof mascara) like a breeze. This product leaves my skin feeling soft (not oily), although I would follow it up with my usual cleanser/toner/moisturiser.  I will definitely be adding this one to my regular skincare routine. Would recommend, 4.5/5.

  2. This is a product I have had my eye on for a while! I think I would use it mostly for removing my eye makeup as it looks like it does a wonderful job. Here in the UK, we can pick this up for around £3 so it's definitely pricier in Australia but still a much better deal that Bioderma! xx

    1. Pretty much everything here is more expensive than most other countries :( That is a great price for you though! :) It really did do a great job at removing my eye makeup (just keep in mind I don't wear water-proof mascara so I'm not too sure how well it would work with that)
      Thanks for taking the time to comment :)
