Removing Makeup Made Easy: Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

Tired of sore and red skin after struggling to remove your makeup? Well with the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water, those problems fade right away. Everyone seems to be familiar with this little gem from Garnier, so when I heard all the good things being said about it, I had to try it out for myself. 

I’ve been using this product for a good few months now and let me tell you removing my makeup has never felt so good. I apply just enough to a small cotton pad so that the majority of the surface area of the pad is wet, which ensures my makeup is removed much more efficiently. This product really does get right in there and remove every last scrap of makeup. You really do realise how much makeup goes onto your face once you use this product. Once I’m finished removing my makeup with this I’m left with a bunch of orange, brown and black cotton pads. Nice, eh? I suppose I know this product is definitely doing its job.

Another thing I love about this product is that it is so gentle on the skin. Makeup melts away in a simple swipe, so you don’t have to scrub hard and leave your skin feeling irritated. This product also feels incredibly soothing on the skin, and almost has a cooling effect, which I love as theres nothing better than the feeling of refreshed squeaky clean skin. It also doesn’t make my skin sting, even around the eye area, which makes this product very versatile as it provides all over the face use, and also makes it perfect for sensitive skin. There’s nothing worse than a cleanser that isn’t eye-friendly – let’s just say it stings like a…you know what.

This product is also a steal too at £4.99 for 400ml – Garnier say this gives you 200 uses, which I’m not sure is necessarily true as it would depend how much makeup you wear, but you certainly get a lot of product for your money. There’s also a smaller size which is 125ml for £1.99, which is a perfect size for when you’re travelling.
