Garnier Micellar Water In Oil Review

Overall rating:
4.8/5

An exciting addition to the Micellar range! Garnier's first bi-phase Micellar solution infused with cleansing oils.

Garnier has made a technological breakthrough in combining the power of cleansing oils with the efficiency of micellar. When the bottle is shaken the two components combine, allowing even the most stubborn make-up to be gently removed without leaving a greasy film. Argan Oil (which is rich in essential fatty acids) and Vitamin E soothes, hydrates and softens the skin. This prevents drying and brings a 'skincare' touch to make-up removal. Cleansing oils are so effective are removing long-wear and waterproof make-up because oil dilutes make-up components that are resistant to water. This allows make-up to be removed more easily by helping it slide off the skin and eyelashes.

Great for waterproof mascara!!!

I absolutely love this clenser for taking of any waterproof makeup I have on! It takes it off so easily because of the oil in it, plus it still is very gentle on the face, not drying and it doesn’t leave an oily residue on the face afterwards like other oil infused cleansers. I also find it helps to take off any residual eyelash glue which is amazing cause that stuff is a B$&@# to get off!

Tips: Note can sting a bit if you get it in your eyes

Garnier Micellar Water needs large cottons pad to

I wasnt really a fan of the original Garnier Micellar Water to be honest but I thought I would try this one out since they are quite cheap. I run out of my Za cleansing oil and went to get some more only to be told that Za was being discontinued. Guttered. I was recommended Garnier Micellar oil by the lady at the counter and also another customer who highly recommended it saying it removes waterproof make up. It's really good at removing all makeup. Give it a good shake to mix the oil in and use cotton pads to wipe, large ones if you can find them and for mascara you will need to hold the cotton pad on the eyes for a few seconds before wiping, just to make sure it soaks the lashes for a nicer wipe, especially if your like me and pack on the mascara, otherwise the pads pull on your lashes if they are not wet enough and doesn't remove it straight away if they ain't wet. Only thing I dont like about using Micellar oil is that it takes awhile to remove all makeup, in saying that its not the Micellar oil it's the small cotton pads. Wish Garnier would sell large face pads to use with Micellar or even better reusable ones.

Tips: Try it, it's only cheap and its really good at removing makeup but I would recommend finding some large cotton pads because it can take awhile just using the small cotton pads.

Not as good as the original

I'm a massive fan of the original Garnier Micellar Water and I wear a lot of heavy make-up and liquid lipsticks so I figured I'd give this a go. The product comes in a generously sized bottle, which is great for the price. I'm not a fan of the lid as it leaks very easily when travelling. There is a bit of a design flaw in that the oil from the product causes the labels to peel off, leaving an oily sticky bottle, but that's just a minor peeve. The oil separated from the micellar looks super cool in the bottle and it does add a fun step to my skincare routine having to shake the two up. This removes liquid lipstick with just one swipe, which is really good, something I found the regular Garnier Micellar Water couldn't do well. Unfortunately the oil doesn't seem to make mascara any easier to get off and it leaves my eye lids looking shiny and oily. This removes my base make-up quite well. I didn't like that this promises to be non greasy but I find it always leaves a greasy, oily film over my skin and my pores get clogged from this if I don't wash this micellar water off. Purely for that, I'd rather stick to the classic micellar version as it removes make-up almost as well without leaving the oily residue. Aside from that, this is pretty efficient and I'd use this again.

Favourite!!

I purchased this on a whim about 6 months ago. I was struggling to get all of my eye make up off at the end of the day and hated scrubbing at my eyes.

This stuff works!! I have used a few other micellar waters that worked for about 95% of my make up but I was left with either panda eyes or skin that felt tight or extra sensitive.

This left my skin free of make up and because of the oil it was left feeling moisturised and soft.

Perfect for hot summer days when you want to take your make up off but can’t be bothered to shower just yet. Also works really well on matte liquid lipsticks.

I still have heaps of the left but will be repurchasing once I have finished this bottle. Wish they did travel sizes of this one too.

Tips: A little goes a long way even on a full face of make up.

THE BEST EVER!!!!!

So I'm not a huge fan of micellar water, I didn't understand it and it was just confusing. I had tried it before, just the regular pink one and I hated it. On a whim, I shook up this at the supermarket and I was immediately drawn to the bright yellow oil mixing with the water, so I bought it.

To use, you shake the heck out of the bottle to mix the oil and water, and you pour onto a cotton pad of your choosing. You wipe gently and wah-lah, makeup removed. The bottle is huge, and you get 200 uses out of it. I have decanted mine into smaller bottles as it's to big to fit in my drawer, and I have a small bottle at my makeup station so I can fix mistakes easily.

I like the smell, it's not overly chemically, but it does have a slight fragrance that doesn't irritate my skin or bother me. I have a few mascaras that I find really hard to remove (Too Faced BTS for example, I have trouble removing) but this removes EVERYTHING with ease.

Depending on how much makeup I wear I use 2 or 3 wipes, both sides, to remove my whole face.This does sting slightly if it gets into the eyes but what doesn't when it gets in your eyes!? This is a really awesome micellar water and I'll be buying it again.

Awesome review Shaz. That's good to know - I feel the same way about micellar water so I might look into this after I've tried the Za oil cleanser.
