Everybody is hyping the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water right now. That made me think of buying it myself and write a review how I feel and think about it. Garnier is one of the brands you can buy in every drugstore here in Germany. They have some amazing products and it’s always interesting trying out their new products.
Since some time the Micellar Cleansing Water is now available here in Germany, too and at first I was really skeptical about that product, but I wanted to give it a try. The product promises to clean your skin efficiently from make up and dirt.
There are three different kinds of the Micellar Cleansing Water: for sensible, normal and combination skin. Since my skin turns out to be more a combination skin during summer and needs to be more matted I choose this one.
The product is available indifferent sizes (from travel size to really huge sizes) and looks very plain. The bottle of it is transparent and on it are all the information like (a short list) of ingredients, how to use it and what to expect of the product. I think it’s a kind of sweet ad simple.
Soak a cotton pad with the Micellar Cleansing Water and gently wiping over your face. I usually use waterproof eye make up. Because of this I use a second cotton pad for my eyes (I don’t think you need to do that although it depends on the demand of make up you use :D). It feels really good and gentle on the skin and you don’t need to scrub.
I like the results: Although I have difficulties to remove water proof makeup (but since the product doesn’t state that, I think it’s really okay) and eyeshadow (you need to use more cotton pads, if you want to remove Smokey Eyes). But for simple every day look it does it job and removes makeup and clears the skin. You definitely can feel you skin to be cleared and feeling soft after the usage. The skin looks matte, also the T-zone looks refreshed and matte.
Summarized I think this Cleansing Water does a great job. I wouldn’t miss my normal eye-makeup-remover, but for a everyday look without waterproof makeup it is great. I don’t need to use cleansing swipes and can miss one step of my cleansing routine while using the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. The skin feels great, refreshed, cleaned and hydrated without irritating the skin or scrubbing with the cotton pad.
Have you already tried out the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water or other Micellar Cleansing Waters? What are your expierences?
