Review- Garnier Micellar cleansing water

Hey lovelies, 
Some of you may remember I bought this cleansing water from Superdrug a couple of weeks or so ago now, and ever since I have used it morning and night to remove my make-up before giving my skin a thoroughly good cleanse with my hot cloth cleanser.Curiosity aside the main reason I was so excited to use a cleansing water was so that my muslin cloths would no longer end up looking like panda bear Halloween masks for kids after every use!


Simply squeeze the cleansing water onto clean cotton pads and swipe over face, neck and eyes to remove make-up and general grime.

The recommended amount of product is 2ml per cotton pad that's if you are aiming to get the 200 uses stated on the bottle, I suppose the amount you need to use will depend on the kind of day you have had and how much make-up you have on and will vary accordingly, I am way too 'bottle squeeze happy' though and have generally been using around 6 or 7 pretty heavily soaked cotton pads to remove all traces of make-up.

Completely fragrance free, it really does feel like you are applying pure water on your skin.

Suitable for...
All skin types even sensitive.

£4.99 for a huge 400ml bottle... nice!

Clear plastic squeezy bottle with pink accents...not the chicest of packaging but super cute, I like it!

So far the only place I have managed to find this is in Superdrug stores, strangely it doesn't appear to come up on stores online or the Garnier website?

Overall verdict/repurchase?
I am really enjoying using this product!I love how gentle it feels on my skin while removing my make-up and a massive plus for this is that it passes the 'eye sting' test with flying colours! (seriously I literally squoze a fully soaked cotton pad in my eye and it didn't sting!) I have such sensitive eyes and so using an eye make-up remover, wipes and a cleanser usually results in them getting really sore and watery.I couldn't make this a comparison post against other micellar water cleansers because I haven't tried any other brands but I am definitely converted to them after using this one, I would really recommend trying this one out especially because of the price and I would definitely repurchase!

Are you a fan of cleansing waters? 


  1. Bioderma is my favourite micellar water that I've tried so far, I just wish it was easier for me to get hold of :(

  3. I've got a bottle of this in my bathroom waiting for my L'Oreal Micellar Water to run out, have my fingers crossed that it will pass the eye sting test.

    I've noticed as well that you can't find it anywhere online, and same as you only found it in Superdrug.

    Love the review.

  4. I've wanted to try the water for ages! After reading this it's going to be a definate purchase. Either this one or the l'oreal one. Excited to try something new :)

    1. I nearly picked up the loreal one but spotted this before I got around to it...I really recommend it its fab :) xxx

  5. I really want to try a Micellar water!
