This new milky micellar water is like nothing we’ve seen before

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Milky Water

Here’s what our Review Crew® had to say about this cleanser

Beauty Crew Junior Beauty Writer / April 15 2019

The product

For those with dry or sensitive skin, cleansing milks are often the go-to cleanser of choice. However, even those nourishing cleansers aren’t without their drawbacks.

Milky cleansers can sometimes leave behind a greasy residue, and they aren’t always as effective at removing all traces of makeup and dirt quite like a gel or foam cleanser.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Milky Water, however, combines the hardworking makeup-removing benefits of a micellar water with a touch of milk to ensure your skin is left nourished and cared for.

Our panel of Review Crew® testers put this product to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Milky Water to a panel of women aged between 18 and 35 who were searching for a gentle cleansing water for their sensitive skin.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Milky Water.

How well it cleansed their skin: Members commented on how well the cleansing water cleaned their skin of makeup and other impurities.

How nourished it left their skin feeling: Many of the review team mentioned that in the past they’ve found that some cleansers have a tendency to leave their skin feeling dry or tight. They were pleased to report that this cleansing water left their skin feeling hydrated and nourished.

How easy to use it was: Reviewers loved the convenience of the cleansing water, especially since it required no rinsing. Many commented that it was the perfect product for quickly removing makeup after a long day.

The verdict

“I always loved the original Garnier Micellar Water, but this is a game changer for someone with very sensitive skin (like mine)! This is much more gentle on skin, especially the eye area as it is more creamy and does not pull the skin. It removes all my face makeup with ease.”
Review Crew®
“Love, love, love this product. I've been using this as a gentle morning cleanser to sweep away sweat and old product, and I have to say it's been my favourite micellar product to date. It has a lovely, creamy texture which has a nice, cooling feeling when applied. Be warned - it's a bit thicker than your regular micellar and has somewhat the texture of Cetaphil. But it really doesn't leave any residue behind once it has dried off, which means that cleansing is a fuss-free experience!”
Review Crew®
“This micellar water isn't your typical micellar water and it has definitely replaced the classic Garnier micellar water as my favourite product. The thicker and milkier consistency has a lovely cooling feeling once applied that dries with no stickiness. The product removes makeup very gently without any stinging or soapy residue, which can often occur after using a similar product. I have really enjoyed this product and think my face definitely feels more moisturised since using it.”
