THE BUDGET BUY: GARNIER MICELLAR CLEANSING WATER


 GARNIER MICELLAR CLEANSING WATER
I know that this is a pretty extreme confession to make on a beauty blog; but I don’t like micellar waters. I know – I’m sorry. I tried a bottle of Bioderma and just, didn’t get the hype. I thought it did a fairly half-assed job of removing my base makeup and I had to tug at my mascara for ages it to remove anything (and waterproof mascara – forget it). I thought micellar waters were overpriced overhyped and unnecessarily difficult to obtain. My heart belonged to oil and balm cleansers that were far quicker and easier to use.
I did notice the hype surrounding this Garnier Bioderma ‘dupe’ in the beauty sphere, but I didn’t plan on picking it up (due to my hatred to micellar waters) until I saw it in Savers for £1.99. At that price – it had to be worth a try. I’m so glad I picked it up – because honestly, it’s love.
I use it as the second step in my nightly ‘triple cleanse’, after face wipes (I use these from Tesco) and before a cleansing balm (I usually use Liz Earle’s Cleanse & Polish) & I think it’s such an important step in my routine. I know I shouldn’t use face wipes, I just don’t want to go through my pricey cleansing balms twice as fast.
The micellar water is perfect for removing all the makeup that my makeup wipes don’t; it’s uber gentle, refreshing, doesn’t tug and just wipes away everything with such ease. If I can’t be bothered to wash my face in the morning, I just quickly wipe this over everything and I feel clean & refreshed. It lasts aaages too – I’ve been using this bottle everyday for around about two months and I haven’t even used half of it yet – incredible value.
My views on micellar waters have certainly changed, although I’m not planning on repurchasing the famous Bioderma anytime soon – this Garnier dupe is cheaper, easier to find and is much more gentle. What more could you want?
Have you tried micellar cleansing waters, what are your thoughts?

    1. You can normally find Bioderma on eBay & I think Boots & Superdrug ship worldwide if that helps at all. Glad you liked my post & thanks for your comment :)

  4. 100% agree with you, Garnier micellar water is amazing! I was really skeptical about them before as I just thought it was overpriced water but it really is brilliant. It is a firm staple in my skin care routine now.
