PRODUCT REVIEW: Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water
We gave a bottle of Garnier's Micellar Cleansing Water to a member of the Gordons team, and asked her to try it out for a few months, and then write a review on it.
When it's compared to other similar products that are available, this Cleansing Micellar Water offers terrific value, and we were keen to find out what all the hype was about! We also wanted to make this a 'long-term' test - over a period of several months - as many of the blogs and reviews you come across about beauty and skincare products often are written after a single use (how reliable can these be?!).
Micellar Cleansing Waters are designed to be "swept away" with a cotton pad, rather than rinsed off. They use tiny micelle particles that draw make-up (including waterproof mascara), sebum and other impurities away from the skin.
Micellar waters are free from soap and alcohol, and therefore they offer a more gentle alternative to face wipes or other cleansers - making them perfect for skin that can be a little bit more sensitive. And - because they're so gentle to the skin - they don't need rinsed off afterwards!
"I was first introduced to Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water when I was asked to review it, and having used it now for several months I can sum up this product in one word: AMAZING!
I have been using this product for several months now. I'm finding that my skin is perfectly cleansed and make-up free at the end of each day, without having to scrub or rinse it. As well as that, my skin feels soft and refreshed - I don't know if this is down to the product itself or just because I haven't used the cleansing wipes that I've used in the past.
This Garnier Micellar Water has no alcohol in its formula, and it's without fragrance or other ingredients that can be hard on skin. It's perfect for my sensitive skin, and it only needs a small amount to remove all traces of makeup.
I am a bride-to-be and so my skin regime is very important to me. My skin feels better for using this product - it's softer and smoother and my complexion is much clearer than it was a few months ago.
And (with a wedding and a honeymoon to save for) at less than £5.00 for 400ml it's certainly a bargain not to miss!
It comes in a large 400ml bottle that should last up to 200 uses. I have tried lots of different products to cleanse my face at the end of each day, but I have to say this is the one product I will be sticking with!"
