Garnier Micellar Water Review

By Monday, November 23, 2015 , , , , , , , , ,


Hello Everyone,

Today I am reviewing Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water for you guys. I have bought this over a month ago and have been using it since. Let's see how this one fared out.

Product description:
A super efficient and gentle way to cleanse, remove makeup, soothe the feel of skin and hydrate in just one step – it’s not magic, it’s Garnier Micellar!
Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water contains micelles which act like magnets, gently lifting away makeup and impurities from the skin, without the need to rub or rinse. The result?
Beautifully cleansed and refreshed feeling skin in an instant. The formula is suitable for the face, eye area and lips, has no perfume and comes in a generous 400ml size.
                                   
Price: Approx 8$ / £4.99

Packaging: It comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a flip open cap which shuts tightly. It is a bulky bottle (400 ml) and hence not that travel friendly.



Performance: It looks like water and has no fragrance whatsoever. So it seems you are using water to remove your makeup. Duhhh.. it is water but Micellar Water. Micellar Water has tiny little cleansing agents called micelles which help in lifting the dirt and makeup from your face. They actually do a good job of removing makeup and are very easy and convenient to use. Just pour (on cotton pads), swipe and go.
Garnier Micellar water is very gentle and is suitable for all skin types even the sensitive ones. It did not irritate my eyes at all and neither did it leave my skin feeling dry or stretchy post usage. It gets rid of makeup nicely and without much effort but it is not that effective on waterproof makeup especially mascara. I prefer waterproof mascara and this was not able to get rid of it even after holding the cotton pad over the eyes for a minute, pressing and rubbing, with normal mascara(not waterproof) also I find it leaves a little bit behind. Apart from that I think it does a good job of removing my makeup and the process is very easy and quick. Plus it doesn’t feel sticky and it doesn’t leave a film behind.
If you are some one like me who prefers cleansing balm/oils to remove their makeup and usually double cleanse this works great as a second cleanse as well and gets rid of every last bit of makeup. It also works great as a morning cleanser. I like to keep my morning skincare simple and quick so I just use this instead of a face wash and get on with my moisturizer and eye cream and I am done. 

The Good:

  • Suitable for all skin types.
  • Very convenient.
  • Removes makeup easily and effectively.
  • Works great as a second cleanse.
  • Did not dry out my skin.
  • Doesn’t feel sticky.
  • Doesn’t leave a film behind.
  • Very Affordable.
The Bad:

  • Not that effective on waterproof mascara.
Now with so many Micellar water available in the market this is the most budget friendly option out there. Removes makeup quite nicely and easily. Love how convenient to use it is and so gentle. If you can do try it out.
