Great for guys too
A staple skincare product for sure. I am a guy so I like to put in minimal effort into my routine but I care about taking care of my skin at the same time. I like using this to clean my face when I get home or at the end of the day and it’s amazing how much dirt is picked up with this even after showering sometimes. It’s a great product to use everyday and I have seen my wife use it to remove her makeup before she cleanses her skin. I started using it because of her and now I use it almost everyday. It’s affordable and you get great value for money with the generous size of the product. Will be using this for a long time.
Great value micellar water
I find micellar water to be a life saver when it comes to removing makeup quickly and easily. There are lots of great ones out there on the market but I find the Garnier one to be the best value for money. You get a large size bottle for an affordable price and it will help to remove all your makeup including mascara and eyeliner. It does not irritate my eyes or my skin and it doesn't leave any residue behind. I always follow it up with a cleanser though to ensure my skin is completely clean. Just pour it on a cotton ball or cotton pad and watch your makeup disappear.
Removes all traces of makeup with ease
I absolutely loved this garner micellar cleansing water. It is so easy to use, just squirt the right amount onto a makeup removal pad and makeup, dirt and grime comes off with ease. It’s great for quick cleansing, saves time and removes all traces of makeup without harsh scrubbing, even my mascara. I never really need to use a lot so it’s quite economical and it doesn’t dry my skin out. I recommend following up with a great moisturiser for excellent results. I would buy this product again and recommend it
My regular makeup remover
This is my go to makeup remover. It works really well to remove makeup , even stubborn waterproof makeup.
It leaves my skin feeling fresh and does not leave any greasy film.
The best thing is it does not clog my pores or cause breakouts as other micellar waters do.
It does not sting my eyes when I use it to remove my eye makeup.
I love that the product does not separate like other micellar waters whereby you have to constantly remember to shake the bottle before each use , in order for the particles to mix.
It is quite economical and budget friendly.
Great makeup remover
This product is a cult favourite for a reason - it's the more affordable dupe, and really is effective and no frills! No fragrance or dyes means this is perfect for those with sensitive skin, and I find this removes waterproof makeup and zinc sunscreen really well. I use this with a reusable cotton pad.
Although I prefer to use cleansing oils as well, this is what I use when I go travelling, or if my skin is feeling congested and I want a more simple clean. Highly recommended, as it is also very easy to find in pharmacies or the supermarket, and regularly goes on sale!
Fragrance-free, gentle, removes light make-up
I was late to try this very popular micellar water. It comes in a huge 400ml or 700ml bottle and is very reasonably priced. I usually soak a cotton pad with it and wipe it all over my face to remove oil and dirt and light make-up as a first cleanse. It's fragrance-free and it feels gentle on the skin. It doesn't irritate and doesn't sting my eyes.
It works well to remove light make-up, but it struggles with waterproof liquid eyeliner and mascara. On days when I have more make-up on, I definitely would use an oil cleanser instead. Even though Garnier says no rinsing is necessary, I still think it's a good idea to follow up with water or another rinse-off cleanser. The only time I don't do that is if I want to quickly re-do my make-up before going out.
This is a great general purpose micellar water if you manage your expectations - it's not designed to remove waterproof eye make-up.
I must admit I’m not the greatest at remembering to wash my makeup off generally just do it in the shower, I was amazed by how affective the micellar water is, doesn’t really have a strong smell to it too which is an added bonus and didn’t dry out my skin.
10/10 definitely recommend if anyone’s looking for an alternative to make up wipes.
Also recommend adding the garnier micellar reusable make up wipes with this product for the best results
By using this daily I’ve noticed my skin has cleared up and you only need a little bit of product to remove al your make up
This has been great for getting makeup - particularly eyeliner and mascara - washed off with ease and speed. I've always hated using heavier cleansers to remove those last little bits of black eyeliner, but this product, along with the eco pads, gets it done with little to no effort.
The only drawbacks are that I still feel like my skin needs cleansing afterwards and that it can be hard to control how much micellar water squirts out of the bottle. If they could do something about that, I'd be giving this 5 stars.
One of the best micellar waters
This hands down has to be one of the best micellar waters I have used. What I love most about this product is how effective it is at removing makeup - including stubborn mascaras! The added bonus is that it's very gentle on my skin even though I have sensitive skin from time to time.
Another feature to this micellar water is how it leaves my skin feeling. It literally feels like I have splashed water on my skin as it doesn't leave a residue/film which I often find some of the other brands do.
When used in conjunction with the Garnier Eco Pads, a little goes a long way, therefore you will get a few uses out of the bottle.
My go to cleanser
I love this product! It makes it so easy for me to clean my make up. It feels like water, there is no residue or scent after use. I have quite dry and sensitive skin and this product does not aggravates or dry my skin out at all. I usually wear waterproof mascara and it easily removes it! I also love the size, this will lasts me at least a couple of months and the price is also makes it super affordable. I will keep on using this even after this trial and would definitely recommend to my family and friends!
Great all round product
As usual, it's a great all round product. Does its job and does it well enough. A little slimy when finished but I usually give my face an additional cleanse. Well priced and easy to find at all major chemists and supermarkets which is alway a plus. I like that it comes in different varieties as well. .....................…...................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................
I enjoy this product and it's a staple in my skin care routine. It's great value and a great dupe for the French brand.
It's a no fuss way to remove makeup, I like that it is low fragrance.
I have been using it before and after the gym to ensure my face is clean and reduce risk of breakouts.
It's also really useful if I have a full face of makeup before the shower as a first step in a double cleanse.
Now Garnier offer the reusable eco pads it's an even better value (and more envionmentally-friendly) product.
I have already tried Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water and once I had tried it, I never turned back. Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water is non irritating on my skin and removes most of my makeup with ease. Depending on the brand of mascara will depend on how well Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water will remove. Occasionally I will need to wipe a little firmer than normal to remove the mascara, but at the end of the day I still find Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water an amazing product. I highly recommend Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water to everyone, even if they have sensitive skin like I do.
Easy and gentle
The Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water feels gentle on my skin, removing most makeup without a fuss. I like that I don't need to rinse it off after I've cleansed and my skin feels as clean as it did when I've used "soapy" cleansers in the past. This is much faster and easier! Great when you have young kids and not much time for a complicated skin routine. My only concern about the product is that it's very easy to pour too much out in a hurry, so you can end up wasting some of the product by over soaking a pad, or just down the drain. Perhaps a different style of lid would help with this minor issue.
For every day use
Very easy to use . It is non greasy and doesn't have any type of smell. Watery in texture. It is very effective in removing makeup, dirt and sunscreen. It is suitable for all skin types. I have been using it everyday AM/PM. My skin feels clean and smooth after it's use. It doesn't over dry your skin.
Highly recommended to everyone .
It is affordable too
Available in different sizes even for travelling Size too.
Best to use them with Reusable makeup remover pads which are washable and makes it an efficient cleanser.
It is one of my favourite micellar water .
I have been using this product for years, I’ve tried other brands but will always go bk to this one.
I’ve even tried other version that Garnier make but always go back to the OG version.
I use it daily in my lazy girl skin care routine, morning and night it’s the first step in my routine. It leaves my skin feeling beautiful and clean. There are no residues left behind, which I have found with other brands.
Simple to use, this product comes in so many sizes which is awesome and incredibly handy when travelling is allowed ;)
Will repurchase for years to come
Effective and budget friendly
This product is an essential for all makeup wearers. It is very effective and easy to use. I have lash extensions so I generally use this only to remove my foundation and long-wear lipstick (which I use most days). It does a great job of removing my makeup ready for cleansing. I have quite sensitive skin and have found that some makeup removers can be quite harsh and can cause reactions but this product has been fine! I love that it is an excellent price and also comes in a large bottle so that it lasts for ages (unlike other makeup remover products!)
Great micellar water brand at an affordable price
I've tried a few micellar water brands in the past, but I want to give kudos to the Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water as it did the job in removing make-up with ease - as well as leaving my skin soft and silky. For those of you who are lazy when it comes to removing their make-up after day out, I highly recommend this for you. I used the product in conjunction with the Garnier Eco Pads as well, and the combination of the two worked well together.
If you're some who's sensitive to fragrances, I can assure you this doesn't have a distinct scent as well. While the colour may be slightly off-putting to some, you'll get over this immediately after you realise how good it is in removing make-up.
Overall, I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants a micellar water cleanser at a reasonable price.
Quick easy to use
I love this garner micellar cleansing water, it's a great cleanser, it removes make-up so quick and I don't need to rub really hard to get my mascara or eye make-up off, it's a quick easy to use cleanser even for when I just want to refresh my face after a busy day not just remove make-up, quick easy to use swipe over my face before I put my moisturiser on makes me feel refreshed, especially the days when I don't have time. It smells nice as well, overall a great product for people like me who some days don't have time to spend on long facial routines
Was so excited to review the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water as I've heard so many great things about it. I paired it with the Garnier Micellar Reusable Eco Pads and it did a fabulous job at cleansing and removing my makeup. I found it to be gentle on my skin and left my skin feeling refreshed. No love lost saying goodbye to my single-use make up wipes and will be adding Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water to my daily skincare routine. The best combo when it comes to makeup removal. Will definitely be recommending this duo to my family and friends.
