Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water Review

It's water. But it has mysterious magical powers? How can it be?

So this product is hyped up at the moment. I was not totally happy with my current makeup removers so I thought I would try it out. Plus, I don't own Bioderma and if this is supposedly a dupe, then yay for me.

The bottle is actually really big. Unfortunately mine has a broken lid but I can deal. It really is just like water, it feels like it when you use it and it has no scent at all. I'm finding that it is super effective for removing makeup, even mascara and eyeliner, although it does require a bit more effort. This is perfect for the lazy gal that doesn't want to have to use several different things to get makeup off. It really is an all in 1 product.

Now, I can't say whether it compares to Bioderma, but I am sure as hell impressed by this.

Let's look at how it performs...

So I have swatched lipgloss, blush, eyeshadow and liquid liner (top to bottom) and on the right hand side, I've used a cotton pad with a small amount of the water to wipe it away. I only did one swipe and you can see it's removed quite well.

But what about if I try some longer wearing products?

Here we have MAC's Ruby Woo lipstick and MAC's Girl About Town lipstick. Both last forever on the lips. Again, only one swipe and a decent amount comes off. With a bit more wiping, it all comes off eventually. Pretty awesome I'd say!

Overall I am super happy with this product. If you want a more affordable option than Bioderma, check this one out!

Have you tried this product?

  2. I've been so tempted to go out and get a bottle to compare to bioderma but i really want to finish off my current bottle of bioderma before picking this one up as the huge bottles last me so long!Performance wise, it looks really good so im excited to give it a go!

    1. It is pretty good! Shame it only comes in one size though. I might actually buy a small Bioderma to take travelling.
