REVIEW | Micellar Cleansing Water


I have never been one to join the hype of Micellar Cleasing waters, as I’ve had very weird experiences and never felt like they have got every single scrap of the days face off…..but seem as I ran out of my trusty, holy grail, Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish, I thought I would grab The Garnier Skinactive Micellar Oil-Infused Cleasning Water for dry & sensitive skin. It’s one heck of a mouthful but It was one of them I hear lots about it, I’m gonna try it purchases…..like you guys know I love giving new products a whirl. But sadly this particular one hasn’t lived up to what I hoped….I really like the original of the Micellar Garnier water but I’ve not been a huge fan of this particular one.

This Micellar Water claims to nourish whilst also cleanse & remove makeup from your skin, but also promises to not leave your skin feeling greasy or leave an oily residue…….Now I have tired many a cleanser but this one is very different, don’t get me wrong I love the value for your money as it’s cheap & doesn’t break the bank and you do get a decent amount (400ml to be exact) for your moolah, I personally don’t agree with the non grease/oily claims as I found it to be on the greasy side which I suppose is because it’s an oil-infused water, but it did however make my makeup glided off, but I had to use at least a million cotton wall pads to get anything off and nearly the entire bottle. I like that its eye friendly but that’s about it really, even though I personally find it to be on the greasy side I simply get another cotton pad and swish around my face to absorb the excess oil, even though it says you don’t feel like you have too do that……..the only thing that I actually love about this product apart from the price & that it's eye friendly is the smell as it’s very fresh. I’ve been using this both morning and night for about 3 weeks now, and it’s good for only £3-£4……but…..and there is a but……I’ve not really felt like it’s properly cleansed my skin and got every scrap of makeup off, and has actually made my skin feel slightly dry. Which I’ve never had before with my other cleansers and water cleansers. To conclude I think this is a good product and is awesome if you are going away for a few days, but I wouldn’t class it as cleansing or a good water cleanser & I certainly wouldn't continue using it on a daily basis. It is bank friendly but I personally don’t think I will buy this particular one again. I ADORE the original one from Garnier as I feel like it really works & does keep to it’s claims & promise….but this one I’ve felt slightly disappointed with. Like people say nothing is quite as good as the original.

It’s good for a little quick wishy washy but not something for me, however it might be something for you.


Have you tried the Garnier Micellar Water & What are your thoughts?

  2. That's exactly the reason why I don't want to try it - and the original is just as good :)

  3. Hm, well it looks pretty. It's a shame it doesn't quite live up to the original because I much prefer the packaging on this one.
