By now I’m sure you will have heard the news, Garnier has launched their well loved Micelliar Water in RSA. Pretty much every beauty blogger and their uncle has a post about this wonder-product and I’m following suit because, well because it is simply wonderful and to not include my thoughts would be a huge injustice 😉
When it comes to removing make-up most of us are incredibly lazy, we don’t want a seven-step, gel, oil, cream cleanser followed by a eye-friendly water-proof makeup remover, we want simplicity and we want it now… especially when we are trying to get to sleep – girls gotta have her beauty sleep yo! That is why makeup remover wipes are so popular!
There are two different skin type options that have been released and it has been said that these two options will suit every type of skin, whether you are oily, dry, combination, normal, sensitive, or any other combination under the sun. As I don’t have oily skin I opted for the Sensitive choice (the pink cap). The 400ml bottle claims to have up to 200 uses, which for the R80 price tag you pay is beyond amazing! It is also alcohol, paragon and fragrance free, which means it’s not going to dry your skin out and will be gentle for even the sensitive skinned. I am most impressed that this doesn’t sting my eyes, even when I am still wearing contacts, there is zero sting, fogginess or other gunky-ness that often happens when products are used around the eye area.
As I say, I have been very impressed with this, I do find that when my mascara game is strong I do have to wipe a cotton-pad over my eye area a few times before all my makeup is removed but that is a price I’m willing to pay. The water leaves your skin feeling moisturised and there is no need to rinse any residue off with tap water, I do still advise that you apply your normal night cream because, let’s face it, as amazing as this product is it is not a miracle-all-in-one-never-need-to-buy-another-product-again.
As mentioned the two options retail for roughly R80 and are currently only available in Clicks, I haven’t seen them in Dischem as yet but hopefully by the time I need my next bottle they will be there! 🙂 Have you tried these Micellar Waters?
