Micellar cleansing water review
Garnier cleansing water review 2
garnier cleansing water review 3

The latest addition to my Micellar water line up is from Garnier and I have to say, I think its my favourite so far. I'm sure you've all heard of micellar waters by now - Bioderma kicked off the trend and the whole beauty world went mad for it. Just incase you don't know anything about it - its a water solution that contains something (don't ask me about science) that breaks down makeup. I guess its a fancy name for a makeup remover but unlike traditional removers that can contain harsh ingredients, micellar waters are very gentle yet just as effective which is why I love them so much. I've built up quite the collection of them over the past couple of years and I tend to use them to remove the majority of my makeup before doing a proper cleanser with a face cloth. 

Garnier's Micellar Cleansing water caught my eye on a recent trip to Superdrug  due to its cute pink lid and its ginormous size. Its a 400ml bottle which is only 100ml less than a bottle of Bioderma yet its so much cheaper. I picked it up for only £4.99 which is such a great bargain and much cheaper than other micellar waters out there that serve the exact same purpose. I've been using it for over a month now so I think I've given it a good enough trial to warrant my review. Firstly, as I briefly mentioned, I love the packaging - its very sleek and I especially love the pink lid - its so girly and cute. I also love how the product is dispensed from the cap - it doesn't come out too quickly like the Loreal cleansing water and its actually very similair in style to Biodera - just slightly taller.

Secondly, this stuff works exceptionally well. I've been soaking a cotton pad with it and swiping it across my face - mainly concentrating on my eye area to remove any stubborn eyeliner and mascara. It melts my makeup away in a matter of seconds and is very gentle on the skin. It doesn't have much of a fragrance which I like and I find my complexion is soothed and fresh looking after using it. There's not a great deal more I can say about this as its quite a simple product that's great to use as pre-cleanse (or when you're feeling a bit lazy) and it does exactly what it says on the tin. Its definitely my favourite micellar water so far - I've got no complaints. I definitely prefer it to Bioderma which is great as its much cheaper! The huge bottle will also last me a really long time.


Have you tried the Garnier Cleansing Water? What's your favourite micellar water?

Lots of Love,

  1. I recently picked this up, mainly due to the cute packaging, ha! I love the way it works on eye make-up, but find it leaves a little more residue than the L'Oréal version, which I guess isn't a massive issue as I also use this as a pre cleanse. Great review, always love your posts :)

  3. I haven't tried any micellar waters before, but have recently picked up the bioderma one for dry and dehydrated skin. I can't wait to try it out, but might invest in the garnier one afterwards.

  7. Really want to try this, I've never tried Bioderma as I think it's a little pricey so tried the L'Oreal one when it came out which I like but it does tend to come out a little too quickly which mean I go through it like crazy. Will probably go for Garnier next time :)

  9. Ok, you've sold it to me, I need to try this. I'm a huge Bioderma fan but it would be great to find a cheaper alternative. :)

  14. Oooh gorgeous! I've heard lots about the L'oreal Micellar water but not so much about this little gem!!
    I've never tried one myself, but plan to in the near future, now I just have to decide which one.

  15. You're right, the bottle looks pretty! I like what you wrote about this product having little fragrance in it, perfume tends to irritate my skin so this one sounds interesting!

  16. This sounds great I may get this next time when my Bioderma runs out I use mine to remove eye make up x

  23. I don't think we have it yet in Canada. I like the packaging, the L'Oréal one looks so dated! I hope Garnier will bring this here, I like Bioderma but it's quite expensive to use everyday!

    ReplyDelete
  24. when i run out of my l'oreal one i'm definately going to buy this as you get so much more in the bottle for the price and i've heard that when comparing the two they have almost, if not exactly the same ingredients and i've heard better things about this one, although i don't have much of a problem with the amount dispensed etc. when using the one from l'oreal!

  32. Just the review I needed! I have been using L''Oreal micellar water and as I finished it, I wasn't sure whether to buy it again (I liked it and it was ok) or to try this Garnier one instead! But as I am seeing more and more great reviews about Garnier I think I will get it! :)

  33. Good to learn about this product. I've never seen it before--but of course we don't have SuperDrug--but I'm sure it'll turn up in Seattle some time.

  34. I definitely want to try this, because it solves the problem the L'Oreal water had that i didn't like which was too much product coming out at one time, as there was just no filter! I'm glad this will be an alternative :-)

  45. I have been using this for a month or so now and I’m impressed! Far better than l’oreals version. I must say it would be hard to tell the difference between this micellar water and biodermas! I will certainly be picking another bottle up when I have run out of this one especially with such a low price!

  46. I think I should give this one a go, I tend to get lazy and take all my make up off with a wipe but when I take the time to properly cleanse my face at night it feels so much better. Got to get back in to it! Come on :)

  48. I did a comparison which you might like between Bioderma and Garnier. I definitely agree with the outstanding price difference! It is a bit crazy.

  52. I love the Garnier Micellar Water. I originally liked the L'Oreal one but I think the Garnier one has taken over, AND it's technically half the price! Amazing :) Wendy xx

  53. Oh I want to try this so bad! So far i have used the L'oreal one and the one from Nivea. Found them both very similar.

  54. After falling in love with L'oreal's Micellar water I had to get this too when I went into Boots, although I haven't tried it yet, but I hope it's just as good! xo

  56. Just bought a bottle after reading this review.. Not tried Bioderma. I feel like if I use this as well as my usual cleanser it will dry out my skin too much.. Just wondered if anyone else uses their micellar water as their only cleanser? Xx
