We all know that it’s important to remove our makeup before bed if we want to take good care of our skin. But after a long day, it can feel like an irritating chore that stands between you and restful sleep in your comfy bed. Yup, we’ve all been there. Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water can make your life a little easier. The name is a mouthful, but this product is amazing! In a nutshell, micellar water is composed of micelles (cleansing oil molecules) which are suspended in water. The micelles cling to dirt and oil, thereby cleansing your skin in a more targeted way, without drying it out. I’m happy to see that micellar water is becoming more readily available in the U.S. through brands like Garnier, as it has been a staple in France for a while.
Garnier’s micellar water comes in 2 formulas. One is the simple micellar water and the other is the All-in-1 micellar water which also removes waterproof makeup. Personally, I use the All-in-1. A little bit of this product on a cotton pad gets my makeup off, including dark eyeliner and waterproof mascara. With just a few wipes, I’m all done. I love that it doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry, there’s no weird fragrance, and it gently removes my waterproof eye makeup without scrubbing. I also find that the formula does not leave a heavy, greasy residue like some other brands I’ve tried. However, if your skin is oily or acne prone, I would recommend following up with a makeup removing wipe, just in case.
So make your evening makeup-removal a little faster with this product, and get on to more important things like curling up with a cup of tea and a good book or just binge-watching Netflix in bed. 😉
Thanks for stopping by!
