Garnier Micellar Cleansing Waters (All Three) - Reviews
As someone who has a very sensitive skin and also a makeup junkie, I need good makeup removing solutions, else I end up breaking out really bad. I was already a huge fan of all the micellar waters I tried by far and then I got my hand on Micellar Cleansing Waters by Garnier. Did they work?

What is Micellar Cleansing Water?
What is it?
A smart 3 in 1 wonder: cleanses, removes make-up and soothes. Designed for sensitive skin, its effective yet gentle formula is loved by all skin types.

How does it work?
The micelles (cleansing agents) within it act like ‘dirt magnets’, lifting away make-up and impurities. No rubbing, no rinsing.

How do I use it?
Simply apply to a cotton pad and gently wipe across your skin.

So I spotted oil-infused micellar water by Garnier a couple weeks ago at Guardian and instantly bought all three types. They only had 400 ml bottles in stock at that time and I knew I am committing big here and I might end up hating these because my skin has it's own mind when it comes to skincare but I still got all of them in full sized packaging.

Types I got;
  • Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water
  • Micellar Water Even For Sensitive Skin
  • Pure Active Micellar Cleansing Water

Let's review each of these so you can have a better idea as to what you actually need.

Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water

Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water is my most favorite of all three when it comes to removing overall makeup and also matte liquid lipsticks & waterproof makeup; especially mascaras and eyeliners. It cleanses the skin perfectly, leaving no residue of makeup behind. My skin feels so smooth at the end and plus point is, the skin does not feel oily or greasy at all.

Oh, and it smells ah-mazing. This is only one of three with fragrance but it has not caused my skin to break out or act oilier which is the big problem I face when using oil-based makeup removers. Overall, this is my go-to cleanser because I use waterproof mascaras and matte liquid lipsticks most of the time. This one is suitable for all skin types. Please note that the oil separates on top so you must shake the bottle before use.
  • You need it if you are looking for an all-in-one makeup remover that does not make you end up looking like an oily mess. Everyday makeup, waterproof makeup, those all-day wear lipsticks; you name it and it removes it.

Micellar Water Even For Sensitive Skin

Micellar Water Even For Sensitive Skin has a pink cap and it is the most basic of all. Suitable for all skin types. It cleanses the skin, soothes and removes makeup pretty flawlessly except for waterproof makeup. It kind of removes waterproof liners eventually but I haven't had a perfect result with waterproof mascaras. It has not caused my skin to breakout at all. It is my second favorite of all three. Overall, it is a must-have cleanser if you are not into waterproof makeup on daily basis.
  • You need it if you are not too much into waterproof stuff but need a makeup remover that does the job even for sensitive skin and does not leave you sore.
Pure Active Micellar Cleansing Water

Pure Active Micellar Cleansing Water has a blue cap and is specifically designed for oily and acne-prone skin types. I do have a very oily t-zone and this does work to mattify my skin while removing the makeup and cleansing the skin effectively but it does not remove waterproof makeup easily, just like the pink one so I don't always reach for it to be honest. I do not dislike it at all but it is my third favorite from all three of these. Overall, it does what it claims to do and if I did not have the pink one, I would have used this one instead.
  • You need it if you are looking for an everyday makeup remover and you are not worried about removing waterproof makeup. You also have oily and acne prone skin and you want a remover that leaves you with a matte yet smooth and clean skin, this is your answer.
All three of these comes in two sizes; 125 ml and 400 ml. Garnier says that each 400 ml bottle is good for 200 uses, based 2ml per cotton pad but I would say that it highly depends on the amount of makeup you use. But still, these are worth the money and if you have a lazy bone and you go to bed without removing makeup, especially when you have minimal makeup on so you think its okay to wash the face in the morning, keep a bottle of these and a few cotton pads on bedside table because you do not need to rinse off the face at the end. =D

All in all, I am loving these and I will be buying smaller packaging for traveling and I know that the only one I will be taking with me is Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water as it meets all my needs.

  1. I love Micellar waters and use them all of the time, but I haven't tried them from Garnier. I would like to try the Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water.

  2. I have used both pink and blue, and I love them both!

  3. I love these! I am currently using the sensitive skin one.

  4. I use micellar water every day!

  5. I love micellar water and I've blown through bottles of both the pink and blue caps. I need to pick an oil infused and give it a try, too.

  6. I haven't tried the oil infused one yet. Now I'm totally intrigued and will put it on my shopping list.

  7. I don't think I've even seen the gold one. I use the pink and it's great. I love that they have the smaller size too to take on the go.

  8. I didn't know about the oil infused one! I'm going to head to the drugstore to pick that one up, it really has my attention.
