The latest addition to my micellar water family is the Garnier Micellar Water. They have been popular for a couple of years now – it has been a hit with most makeup artist and beauty bloggers. The one that kicked it all off for me was Bioderma.
What is micellar water? It’s made up of micelles (tiny balls of cleansing oil molecules suspended in to soft water) Like a magnet, micelles capture and lift away dirt, oil and makeup without harsh rubbing. Leaving skin perfectly clean, hydrated and refreshed without over-drying.
You simply saturate your cotton round, then gently wipe all over your skin until it is completely clean from makeup and impurities. When it comes to your eyes, just hold the cotton round over your eyes for a few seconds, then gently wipe without harsh rubbing. Remember that the skin around your eyes are very delicate so be gentle.
Let’s all take a moment to appreciate how similar the packaging is to the cult-favorite micellar water, Bioderma. Which we still can’t find in drugstores in the states. You, can order it online if you really wanted to give it a try. Garnier Micellar water is just as effective (in my humble opinion), just as gentle, and a fraction of the cost.
Garnier also released a waterproof version of the Garnier Micellar Water to assist in helping you remove your waterproof makeup. The bottle contains two layers of liquid just how a traditional makeup remover would. It does not leave a greasy feeling on your skin after you remove your makeup and. I think it has a lot to do with the ingredients, I actually found it really fun to research the ingredients that are in the products we use on a daily.
So some might ask what is the difference between the pink and blue cap micellar waters are and honestly the blue one to m. Just seems to have oil components in it to assist in taking off the waterproof makeup.
You can find these on Amazon , Target and your drugstores
They retail for about $7-$8.99
