With me having such sensitive, acne prone, anything will break it out skin, I am very very careful with what I use on my face. My cleanser is probably the most important product I use and I always think twice and read a million reviews before deciding to try a new cleanser.
As some of you know, I only have two cleansers that I trust on my skin. Bioderma Crealine H20 Cleanser, which is my holy grail and will always be my number one cleanser and secondly, Dr Nick Lowe Anti Blemish Sebum Control Cleanser. Both of these products cleanse my skin thoroughly, reduce redness, calms my sensitive skin and most of all, they don’t break me out.
So, recently I went on holiday and it was just my luck that both my cleansers were running low and by the time I realised it was too late to order online for delivery before I flew out. Panic had really set in and at this point, I really didn’t know what to do.
Anyway, the next day, I was in Boots, picking up a few toiletries for my holiday, when I stumbled across a product that caught my eye. The Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. The first thing that caught my attention, was the see through packaging and secondly the cleanser was water like. In my personal opinion, these types of cleansers are the best for your skin. I am not one for cream cleansers, I feel they take ages to work with my skin and also leave behind a residue. This product immediately reminded me of my all time favourite makeup cleanser, Bioderma Crealine H20 Cleansing Water, which I now believe is the high end version of this drug store product.
So, I picked it up immediately, checked over the ingredients and the description of the product, and I was sold. Trust me it, it takes a while for me to be convinced into using a new product.
This cleansing water uses a micellar technology, exactly like the Bioderma Crealine H20 Cleansing Water, which is an all in one magnetic cleanser. It claims the ‘cleansing agents capture and lift away dirt from the skin. No need to rub to remove impurities and makeup’.
I was so impressed with this product and I will tell you why. It didn’t break me out, it definitely didn’t feel like a chore to cleanse my skin, it literally just melted off and I truly believe in the micellar technology, which I was originally a little skeptical about. Bioderma uses the same technology and I just didn’t believe that a drug store brand could also pull this off, but I was wrong. My skin feels so clean, smooth and thoroughly cleansed when I use this cleansing water. I would also like to point out, it doesn’t dry my skin out and I feel completely hydrated once my makeup has been fully removed.
This generous sized packaging at 400ml will last you ages, looks pretty and is priced at under £5. The Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water has definitely joined my two favourite cleansing waters and I can see it being a firm staple in my cleansing routine for a very long time. I can honestly say, I cannot see any difference in this against the Bioderma Crealine H20 Cleansing Water, and if you are looking for a cleanser on a budget, this little guy is the way to go.
Have you tried the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water? What do you think of it? What are your favourite cleansers and do you prefer cleansing waters over creams? I’ll see you soon. X.O.
