Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water Review


All through high school and college I didn’t wear a lot of makeup, which also means I rarely washed my face too. I cringe looking back and realizing how badly I treated my skin. Now that I’m a little bit older I have made it a habit to wash off my makeup every night and do a light cleanse in the mornings too. Recently I started using the Garnier SkinActive® Micellar Cleansing Water to my daily skincare routine and have noticed such a huge difference. Where most people wash their face with a simple soap and water, micellar water draws out the impurities in the skin without drying it out so it works as a facial wash, makeup remover and moisturizer all in one. The ultimate time saver especially if you often forget to scrub your makeup off every night! garnier-skin-active-micellar-cleansing-water-review

This type of product has actually been around for a while and is quickly becoming a skincare staple in many bathroom cabinets. I love to use it because it because it can easily remove an entire face of makeup without leaving behind any oil like many makeup cleansers do. Garnier SkinActive® has even developed a waterproof formula to help remove heavy foundations or stubborn eye makeup like waterproof mascara. So you won’t need to use a separate makeup remover to get that fresh face every night.


If you use a makeup wipe to remove your makeup at night they’re often saturated with chemicals. Micellar water is lot safer for the skin and is just as convenient to remove makeup. In the mornings I simply moisten a large cotton ball and swipe it all over my face to prep my skin for that day’s makeup. At night, I’ll use a cotton round to remove any makeup or dirt from the day. It quickly became my favorite product to use at night because it’s gentle and hydrating on my dry, sensitive skin. It’s even replaced my toner because it doesn’t contain alcohol so it never stings or irritates my skin.


I also love to use it to help clean up any of my beauty blunders. I can never get a perfectly straight cat eye so I just gently dab a drop on a cotton swab to help create a sleek line. I also love to use to clean up any eyeshadow fallout from under my eyes and on the occasion when I get a little mascara on my upper lid, eek!


Over the next few months we’re planning a few trips and using micellar water as part of my beauty routine will help lighten my travel beauty bag because it replaces both my makeup remover and face wash.


Bottom line, it’s my new go-to product because it’s perfect for those lazy nights when I don’t have the energy to stand at the sink, and it’s also great for a quick cleanse in the morning if I want to start with a fresh face before applying makeup. Garnier SkinActive® Micellar Cleansing Water has already become a permanent product in my skincare routine.

    I recently discovered Micellar water by garnier and I absolutely love it! For a quick wash at the end of my day I use Micellar water to get all the dirt and makeup off my face. I ALWAYS follow up with pure Witch Hazel. Witch Hazel has helped with my acne and doesn’t dry out my skin. Micellar water and witch hazel are my skin care faves!! ❤️❤️

    I have pretty bad acne and if I don’t use my toner I get more pimples, but the toner does sting. If I switch to this product will my acne get worse?
