I have to admit, I’ve tried Micellar Waters in the past and been woefully disappointed; but with everyone raving about Garnier’s one, I decided to give it a try!
I bought the travel sized bottle which is 125ml compared to 400ml for the full sized product. Despite the larger size being better value for money, I’ve never finished a bottle of Micellar Water before, so I played it safe by getting the smaller size.
To use this product, I applied it to cotton pads and swiped over my face. It cut through my foundation, concealer and blush no problem, and felt as light and gentle as using water. To check how the Micellar Water did, I ran a face wipe over my skin and no makeup showed up on the wipe. So far very impressive!
Now the big challenge, eye makeup! Mascara, eyeliner and eyeshadow is always hard to remove, so I was eager to see if this could remove it as easily as it did with the rest of my makeup.
As with most makeup removers, it required a fair bit of rubbing to take my eye makeup off. It took longer than face wipes and the Micellar Water irritated my eyes, leaving them a bit red and sore. I’ve yet to find a liquid makeup remover that doesn’t irritate my eyes, so I’ve had to use face wipes to take off my eye makeup.
So overall I’ve quite liked Garnier’s Micellar Water. It removes my face makeup easily enough and feels gentle on my skin, however it does make my face feel a bit drier after use. I’m also disappointed it stings my eyes, so I’ve had to still use face wipes to remove my eye makeup. I haven’t used the Micellar Water as much as I expected too, as I still prefer face wipes, but I will use this bottle up and I probably would purchase it again.
Let me know if you’ve tried Garnier’s Micellar Water.
