[REVIEW] Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

Okay, I have a little confession here before I start to review this product: This is actually my second bottle of this Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water, but I accidentally threw my first bottle because I was in business trip and I forgot that I supposed to bring home my empty bottles of skin care/makeup with me. 😥


This All-in-1 cleanser is surprisingly powerful yet gentle to skin. It effectively removes makeup, cleanses and refreshes skin. A multi-purpose cleanser that contains Micellar technology. 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.

I actually accidentally bought it during my business trip because I didn’t expect that I would be finishing my trusted Bioderma H2O on those 2 weeks trip. Since the city where I worked on is pretty small and don’t have Bioderma on their drugstore yet, I decided to get the only micellar water that being sold there, which is the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water.

I was quite afraid when I am getting this, though, since I haven’t done my research first prior to buying, and this was such a abrupt purchase. I was afraid that this micellar water will make me break out or something, especially since I’ve never had a good experience with Garnier before. Their eye cream burn my eyes, ugh. 


So, I was surprised that this Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water worked pretty well on me. It removes my makeup pretty much similar with Bioderma H2O, even though the after-feels is not as ‘fresh’ as Bioderma, but still, it removes my makeup really well. It even removes the super waterproof Heroine Make Mascara, which surprised me even more!


This Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water have two separate layers, which quite unusual to me since these separate layers usually could be only found in eye makeup remover. We need to shake it well prior to use it, soak your cotton pads, and removes your makeup as usual.

If there’s anything that I didn’t like in this Garnier Micellar Water, is the fact that the scent is rather weird. It’s not that bothersome that I don’t want to use it anymore, but it will definitely better if Garnier improve the scent, or make it without any scent at all.


So overall, I would recommend this Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water to everyone, especially if you are looking for an affordable micellar water. At $2.5 price point, there is nothing that could beat Garnier this time around. It works pretty much the same with Bioderma, and even could remove waterproof makeup! So, I would definitely repurchase this in the future! Will it make me fully converted into this micellar water and abandon my Bioderma? Well, probably no, but whenever I’m on a tight budget or come to a city that didn’t sell Bioderma, I know what to look for!
