The Review – Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

Hello again! This micellar water is everywhere at the moment, and after reading a few rave reviews I thought I’d see what the fuss is all about!


I bought this from Superdrug for around 3 pounds – there was a deal on at the time and I’m afraid I can’t remember exactly how much it was. There were a few cheaper options but so many people had said this was the best so I went for this one.

I have to say, I wasn’t hugely impressed with this product.

Yes, it did remove my makeup, but it still takes a long time for me to get all my mascara off – I use Seventeen’s falsifye which is pretty stubborn but I was hoping that this would get it all off with a few tries. It didn’t seem to work any more effectively than my cream cleaner from la Roche Posay. This is obviously a cheaper alternative, but not one that would be mosturising enough for the winter months for me. Having said that, it may come in handy in the summer when I go on holiday and sweat a lot more!

At the moment I’m only using it to remove my eye makeup before I then go over again with my cream cleanser. I have tried using it all over my face and it does feel a bit weird when you’re waiting for the product to sink in. For those days when my skin is feeling a bit clogged this is a nice change from my heavier cleansing cream, but I don’t reach for it to cleanse my whole face very often at all.

Having said all that, I do love the packaging, and the amount of product you get in the bottle. I think I’ll have to do an update in the warmer months to let you guys know how I’m getting on with it! It doesn’t irritate my skin, which is something that I often struggle with with many new products, and it does add some variety into my skin care regime, which is always good.

Did anyone else feel similar to me? Let me know!

Much love xoxo

  1. I can’t say I had any bad experiences with this product I really really love it and continue to purchase it when I run out , it sucks that it didn’t work for you but I suppose not everyone is the same :/ xx

  2. I’ve also tried this cleansing water just because I heard so many great reviews and remarks from friends/acquaintances but like you I myself was not impressed. I use Lancome’s well-renowned makeup remover and it works wonder of course; although it is more on the pricey end I thought perhaps I could use this as an alternative. I haven’t given it a second chance … perhaps I might.


    1. I think I’m going to give it a little more time but I just haven’t got the patience to spend forever taking my eye makeup off! Glad I’m not the only now though haha xoxo
