Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

garnier micellar cleansing water review

Oh how I love a good lazy alternative, but only when it actually does the job well! I've never been a fan of face wipes, I always feel as if they pull at your skin and are always a little too dry to actually do as they say. While I've tried quite a few make-up removers over the years I've never liked how they'd leave my skin feeling afterwards, some leave you feeling oily or worse -sticky! So for a long time I'd sadly been without any lazy but still effective way to take off my make-up until I found Garniers Micellar Cleansing Water in Boots. It was a while ago -I'm now on my second bottle, but I thought it deserved a mention because it's really quite fantastic!

Don't get me wrong, I still love my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish and really enjoy the process of taking the day off with it, it's calming scent is perfect to use before bed and I'd never be without it. But you know those times when you've already got yourself comfy, or your just so sleepy that the thought of standing over the sink makes you consider sleeping with a full face of make-up on? Yes, those nights, this stuff is a life saver!

Depending on the amount of make-up I have on I'll use between two to five cotton pads. It takes absolutely everything off with ease -even waterproof mascara, and doesn't leave behind any horrible residue. Unlike a lot of make-removers or cleansing waters I've tried in the past this doesn't leave your skin feeling stripped at all, instead it feels beautifully clean but hydrated. As my skin can sometimes be a little temperamental I went for the pink bottle -for sensitive skin, the green one is better for combination and I've not had one problem or brake out from using it . Also if you have in issue with scent them you'll enjoy the fact that this isn't perfumed. The last thing I have to add is the price, at £4.99 a bottle for a product that really does the job you can't complain. I'd definitely give this five stars and recommend it to anyone looking for a knew cleansing water. It's something I will always have in the house from now on, and if I'm travelling I will be picking up the smaller bottles too!

Have you tried these new Garnier waters? What do you think of them?



  1. I have been using the Bioderma for years and I really want to find a cheaper alternative :) I definitely need to check this one out! Lovely review. x

    1. I've always wanted to try Bioderma but never had the chance to, this one is excellent though! I'm sure you'll love it :) xx

  2. I recently bought the Garnier water. I usually use it after a make up wipe to get all the residue off and I have to say I do like it too. My skin feels nice afterwards.
