Review: Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water 400ml

Sleeping with make-up on can lead to various skin problems such as acne breakouts, signs of aging, uneven skin tone, and dullness. Thus, make-up remover is important to keep the skin looking youthful and flawless. There are various make-up removers available for us to choose but the most important thing to consider when buying the perfect make-up remover is to avoid those that contain alcohol, fragrances, and preservatives.

Most make-up removers are harmless for our skin but the ingredients matter. For instance, alcohol-based make-up removers can be irritating or drying the skin while baby oil which is used as unconventional make-up removers can block the pores and cause breakouts for acne-prone skin. Besides, there is a need to always handle the eyes are with extreme care because eye make-up is usually more difficult to remove especially when it is waterproof (e.g mascara, eye liner). There is a need to ensure that the eyes are ‘perfectly’ clean because any residues can lead to puff eyes, infections, and discolouration.

What I Say

I received a bottle of Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water 400ml a few days ago. It comes in a clear squeezable plastic bottle with a pinkish lid. The label has a complete information such as description about the product, ingredients, instructions, and manufacturing date. The product also states that it should be used within 6 months after opening it.

The product is completely odourless which means it does not contain alcohol. I usually use it to remove my make-up and cleanse my face before bedtime. It helps to wipe-off the make-up especially waterproof mascara with a minimal swipes on a cotton pad. I have a combination skin which is prone to acne breakouts, and this cleansing water makes my skin squeaky clean, refreshed, and no breakouts. It makes my skincare routine more convenient as I no longer has to spend time on removing make-up residue using cleansing oil which sometimes still leave traces of oil and make-up inside the pores.

Since I usually apply tretinoin cream (a preparation of retinoic acid, applied to the skin to treat acne and other disorders), my skin has gotten quite dry as a side-effect from using it. However, this cleansing water has dramatically improves my skin conditions as it does not harsh to my skin, and keep my skin moisturized with zero irritation. I can now ditch tretinoin because I can always rely on Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water to treat my skin. I just hope this will never be discontinued.

How about the price? Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water is so affordable! This gentle make-up remover is a holy grail can be bought for MYR 9.90 (125ml), and MYR 24.90 (400ml). You can simply buy it from Hermo.

My Verdict

This is a great cleansing water which can remove face, eyes, and lips make-up very easy. It does not contain alcohol which is great for sensitive skin. Since it does not irritate my skin and ‘promote’ breakouts, I would recommend this product to everyone. You will never regret having a bottle of this cleansing water at home because there’s no need to rinse off after using this. Just soak with a cotton pad, and swipes. Plus, the price is very affordable!
