Today, I’m sharing my thoughts on the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water….
You may be thinking “What is Micellar Cleansing Water”? I will share the answer of that question through the words of professionals.
“According to board-certified dermatologist Hadley King of Skinney Medspa, Micellar water is made up of micelles (tiny balls of cleansing oil molecules) suspended in soft water. “The idea is that micelles are attracted to dirt and oil, so they are able to draw out impurities without drying out the skin,” she says. Therefore, micellar water can be used as a facial wash, makeup remover and moisturizer all in one.”-huffington post
Micellar water has been around for quite some time in Europe and Asia but just recently hit the United States. Why do we get the good stuff last? I’ve been using the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water for a couple of weeks now and I’m really loving it. They have a lot of claims on their bottle and I have to say that I agree with all of them. It did remove my makeup including waterproof makeup. It left my skin feeling clean and very refreshed. Although, the Micellar Cleansing Water looks like water and has the consistency of water, when you rub it on your fingers, it has a different texture. It also has no smell. My skin can be very sensitive to certain products and it works great for me.
I like to use the Micellar Cleansing Water to remove my makeup. I pour it on a round cotton pad and the makeup wipes right off my face without any harsh rubbing. A couple of times I didn’t shake the bottle good and it did leave an oily residue on my face. This didn’t bother me to much because I usually jump in the shower after removing my makeup at night. Note to self: shake, shake, shake! I also used it on days that I didn’t wear any makeup. It does leave that cool, refreshing feeling on your skin.
I really do recommend this product to all of you that are thinking about trying it out. It has great reviews and the price is great. I also love that you can purchase it at any drugstore.
