Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

Hey there!

I’m sure you’ve all heard of micellar water by now and have probably got a stash of your own on your dressing table. I have made my way through a few different micellar waters and the L’Oreal version was the latest one.

Having realised I was running low on a trip to Boots I noticed that the Garnier version was on offer for £2 something for a 400ml bottle, I couldn’t refuse.


I have been using this over the last few weeks and it has been great. It removes eye make up really easily especially eye pencils such as the 24/7 eye pencils from Urban Decay which can be a bit of a nightmare to remove as they’re so long lasting.

It has also been really useful for getting rid of lipstick, I tried some on the other day only to realise it was the wrong shade to go with my bright pink top and this whipped it off in a flash.


This was created for use on even sensitive skin which generally I don’t have but my eye area is one of the most sensitive areas known to man kind! Anything seems to trigger it so it was reassuring to know that this one didn’t cause a reaction. It is hypo-allergenic, and dermatologically and opthalmologically tested so it shouldn’t cause a reaction but you never know!

The only issue I can see so far is that 400ml is allegedly 200 uses…..I’m not convinced. After a few uses this bottle has already visibly gone down so I can’t see how it would last 200.


Needless to say this removes stubborn mascara and lipstick stains in one easy swipe without scrubbing and rubbing at my skin and irritating it further. Especially when it’s on offer for less than £3!


Have you tried the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water? Are you a fan? Which is your favourite?
