I’m a huge fan of micellar waters – I fairly consistently turn to Bioderma and B at Superdrug, but also have almost finished a bottle of Garnier regular micellar (pink lid). I know I’ve been featuring some very expensive cleansers of late so I’m really happy to find this new micellar at a more friendly £5.99.
Garnier SkinActive Oil Infused Micellar Water is rather similar to the Erborian cleansing water, Herbal Energy Cleanser, in that it leaves a ‘film’ behind on the skin. I think if you love your skin to ‘squeak’ after cleansing, this isn’t for you, but if you prefer to leave some pliability in your skin, then it is. It’s not doing less of a cleanse – in fact, this is a power cleanse and also hoovers off waterproof make up – but you will be left with a residue feel. At the top of the bottle you can see the extra oil, which you need to shake in yourself to make it a water, but I found the make-up removal results very, very impressive. In fact, I’d say this is very handy as a pre-balm cleanse to remove all your make up before cleaning your skin.
It does contain alcohol as well as argan oil, and we could not in a million years say this is any kind of a natural product but my goodness! It does remove every single last trace of make up! You can find it HERE.
