When a random purchase becomes a regular repurchase, it’s only fitting for the product in question to get it’s own blog post. I bought my latest bottle of Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water in a recent drugstore haul and it’s high time I told you why this product has become a skincare staple for me.
Firstly, it does exactly what it’s meant to do; it removes makeup and any yucky stuff that happens to be on your face. It does so without you needing to rub hard with the cotton wool. If you’ve had a lot of makeup on, this product is gentle enough that you can go back in with as many bits of cotton wool as you like without aggravating your skin, something that I’ve found isn’t true of all cleansers.
Secondly, this one is aimed at combination and sensitive skin types. I’ve never come across a product like this that specifically caters for both. It suits my skin perfectly as my t-zone gets really oily but other parts of my face with get red & upset if I used a cleanser that is too astringent.
Thirdly, it doesn’t need to be rinsed away like some higher-end Micellar Waters; if I need to rinse afterwards, I might as well clean my face with a face wash & actual water! Being stuck in bed as much as I am, this product is very handy to have living in a bedside drawer with some cotton wool.
Finally, the fact that it’s fragrance-free is an important bonus for me. Certain smells can trigger nasty head pain in people like me who live with Neurological disorders. I’ve had to abandon some lovely products because my brain couldn’t handle the smell of them, so fragrance-free is always a safer bet for me.
This product is often included in BOGOF or discount sales at either Boots or Superdrug – so far I haven’t paid the RRP of £4.99 for any of the 3 bottles I’ve purchased!
What do you think of the Micellar Waters on the market? Do you have a favourite?
