So I've probably mentioned this a gazillion times, so sorry if I'm repeating myself but recently I have become sooo obsessed with skincare. I have always been quite nervous and petrified about switching up my skincare routine as I have quite horrible oily, acne-prone skin. I was afraid some products may worsen my skin and cause yet another terrible breakout but lately that's obviously not been the case.
I've switched up my normal cleansers and moisturisers for new products except from the good ol' La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo+. This baby is my spot zapper and works amazing so no chance of me settling for anything else just yet.
Anyway, as mentioned I have changed up my normal everyday cleansers. I always double cleanse so I have two different cleansers I use. One for removing my makeup and another for a deep cleanse. It's better to be safe than sorry right?
The makeup remover that I have been using for the last month is the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. Okay, so I've only just jumped onto the micellar water bandwagon but I didn't see what all the hype was about at the time. It just never seemed appealing to me, until now of course.
Bioderma took the blogging world by storm at first but I didn't want to pay such a hefty price for something that I couldn't be sure would work for me so Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water seemed to be the perfect place to start and let me tell you, I am in love.
The packaging is so appealing, there's just something about a transparent bottle that I love. The bottle contains approximately 400ml of the cleansing water and you can apparently get 200 uses out of it which is great. I've used it so many times and there is still plenty left for me to use.
To remove my makeup I pour the cleansing water onto a cotton pad and massage it into the skin using circular motions and it lifts all makeup away from my skin with ease. I don't need to rub it into the skin very harshly, it removes with a gentle touch. Eye makeup is a different story though, it takes a while to remove but I tend to leave it to soak onto the eyes and remove away gently after 5-10 seconds. I only need at least 2 or 3 cotton pads to remove my entire made up face.
It doesn't leave my face dry or strip any oil away from the skin, it's suitable for even the most sensitive skin and it leaves my face feeling refreshed and immensely clean.
The Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water has reduced my skincare routine a great deal. Before I was introduced to it I was very taken with my Olay Cleansing Milk and have been for years. I always used to spend at least a good ol' 5 minutes to remove my makeup but now it takes at least 2 minutes which is always a good thing.
I wasn't expecting to like this when I bought it I must admit but I am so delighted that I decided to purchase it. It's reduced my skincare routine in a considerable amount of time and it does just the job of getting rid of makeup without exacerbating my skin. I can't rave about this stuff enough! If you haven't tried this cleansing water I highly suggest you do.
You can currently buy it from Boots online here for just £2.99 on offer down from £4.99.
