Micellar Water is a product that has recently found it's way into my beauty regime, after first giving into the hype & trying out Bioderma I've been testing out different ones along the way. When I spotted this Garnier one on the shelves of Superdrug for just over £3 I couldn't say no to picking up a bottle, especially since Bioderma isn't the easiest to get hold of now I don't live in London, an affordable version is just what I've been after!
The water like consistency removes all traces of my makeup without the need to rub any product in, literally sweep a soaked cotton pad all over my face & ta-da, my face is wiped away! It's also great for people like me who admittedly get a little lazy when it comes to skincare as this doesn't require any rinsing afterwards. I do tend to cleanse again after using it with something more creamy, just to ensure all makeup has disappeared & any dirt is removed. My flannel always seems to be clean, so Garnier's claim that this product is like a magnet when it comes to lifting dirt away is pretty accurate! I love the feeling of Micellar Water's on my face & it's no different with this one either. It's so refreshing & soothing, leaving my skin clean & fresh. One of the best things about this product is the fact it doesn't sting my eyes which is blumin' amazing because I often wear a lot of eye makeup which can be quite tricky to remove. This wonderful solution sweeps away everything, even stubborn mascara in a matter of seconds. It's also great to use this product in the morning to freshen up my face before I use my morning face wash. Another positive is that theres a lot of product for your money, 400ml which apparently equals up to 200 uses, I've been using it each day for the past week & hardly used any, I can definitely see it lasting for ages! In comparison to the L'Oreal water I much prefer the packaging of this one, I waste a lot less product due to the bottle being a better design it pours out at a more controlled rate, whereas the L'Oreal one tended to squirt everywhere! It's basically identical to Bioderma, the solution works exactly the same & even the bottle is very similar! I'd actually go as far as saying this is my favourite between the two because it's less than half the price, I can purchase it easily & I don't waste as much product when pouring it onto cotton pads. In my opinion, it's definitely the high street dupe for Bioderma, it's secured itself a firm position in my skincare routine & is one of my favourite skincare products yet!
