Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water - Review

Cleansing waters are popping up everywhere since the Bioderma  Crealine H2O opened up the market. Garnier brought out their version recently and it's been fairly popular with the beauty community.

Garnier claims that their Micellar Cleansing Water "removes make-up, cleanses and soothes skin on the face, eyes and lips in one step without needing to rinse off." 

In regards to price, it's on the cheaper side and definitely more affordable than the Bioderma Crealine H2O. And the ingredient list isn't too long, which is good except it's full of chemicals. On the plus side, no alcohol so it's safe to use around your delicate eye area.

RRP: $12.00

Quantity: 400ml



The packaging isn't anything flash but it is practical. The lid is secure so you don't have to worry about the product accidentally spilling. Even if the product did tip over, the small opening on the lid would prevent the entire product spilling everywhere which has happened to me in the past with other products. The bottle is plastic so it won't smash and you can easily see exactly how much product you have left. All in all, very simple but practical packaging.


The product itself is also very basic. It's gentle and removes make up just as Garnier claims, a big plus for such a cheap product. You apply the product with a cotton pad and it feels like you're simply wiping water across you're face. There's no fragrance and it has no strong smell which is great for those sensitive to scented products.

When removing make up, this cleansing water does a decent job but it does struggle with waterproof mascara which I wear often. You may need to wipe your face twice with this product though as it has a tendency to leave a little bit of make up behind but it doesn't leave an oily residue so it's no trouble.

It's a pleasant product to use and hasn't cause any break outs on my oily, acne-prone skin since I started using it a couple months ago. A very good product.


I would definitely recommend this product for its make up removing abilities. It's cheap, easy to use and works well. I'd repurchase this cleansing water because it doesn't irritate my skin and leaves my skin feeling refreshed rather than oily. This product is suitable for all skin types as it doesn't have alcohol which could irritate dry skin and doesn't leave any residue which could irritate oily skin. Basically a good, cheap product.
