This is my favourite of the Garnier micellar waters, I am now on my third bottle. It really does remove my Estee lauder double wear makeup quite easily and although it doesn't completely remove my waterproof mascara. It makes my skin feel clean and fresh but not dry.. It smells nice and fresh too, I don't think the fragrance is too strong. I've tried several other Garnier micellar waters but this is by far the best.

No secret I’m a huge fan of micellar water to remove my makeup.. I think I’ve tried all of them. I haven’t really been let down yet. Especially by garnier.
This was no exception.
I think the thing I loved most was that this miraculous micellar water dissolved and helped wash away some of the most stubborn mascara I’ve ever used!! I really need to start wearing my glasses more when shopping because I purchased a waterproof mascara - something I don’t do often.. as much as I love the thought, I hate the thought of removing it even more. But this micellar water worked wonders. Hands down it removed my waterproof mascara with ease! I was gobsmacked as my gel micellar (as much as I love it) struggled.
It left my sensitive skin feeling clean and fresh and not oily or irritated. So that’s another big win for me. I don’t feel like my skins been stripped thank goodness.. even though I follow up with moisturiser etc some washes leave my skin dryer than the Sahara desert.
One thing about micellar water is the application.. I don’t like using a disposable wipe all the time so I’ve brought 2 washable wipes - I just need to stay on top of my washing now eek.
It’s a really decent size and look from garnier. On par with the rest of the micellar range. I have a nice wee line up going on now.
Amazing price if you get on sale like I did at countdown. Even the non-sale price is pretty good for the size.
I’m a month down and still about 2/3 full. So very long lasting.
Another stunner from garnier. This and the gel are up there in my top makeup removers/cleansers.
I had used the regular/original Garnier micellar water many times before deciding to give this oil infused version a go. Turns out that I prefer this one now.
I really like this super clean and simple looking packaging and with the layer of yellow oil in the bottle, I think that it looks like quite an appealing product to use on my face.
This cleanser is super effective at removing a good coat of makeup, it's very gentle and mildly hydrating at the same time, and I get the feeling that it's good for my skin.
I find that this 400ml bottle lasts and lasts with almost daily use, in which case the value for money is unreal.
I will definitely to continue to purchase this product, it's my favorite micellar water and micellar water is a product that I always have on hand.
During countdowns 50 % off sale I put this in my trolley of groceries. It’s my sneaky way of getting my beauty products in . I wear make up daily to work. I need something that will quickly remove my full faced make up .
Bottle is clear has the garnier labelling on it . I can easily read the fine print on it . Consistency is a combination of water and oil . Scent is sweet musky fresh . Quite strong .
Application I like to put this on a wipe and it easily cuts through my make up . No need for a second cleanse absolutely perfect .
Overall this bottle is large . I use it daily and it takes my make up off nicely . It’s lasted me over three months . I can see it lasting into the new year . I’m happy with the results . I would happily buy it again . Worth the money .
Tips: Do a patch test first on your skin.
I recently went to a make-up artist who used the 'Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water in Oil' to cleanse my face before applying make-up. I've only used the original Garnier Micellar Water before and the 'oil' bit made me a tad worried that my skin would become oily and my expensive make-up application would be a shiny waste of money. I couldn't have been more wrong! My skin was soft and smooth but absolutely no shine. I have since purchased this myself (onto my second bottle) and I just love it. I find that this removes make-up much easier than the original. It must be something to do with the added oil. My skin can be quite sensitive to some products but this is very gentle. This product (that I tried only by chance) has become a time-saver for me and a staple among my beauty products. The best part is, you can find it at most supermarkets and it's so affordable!
Tips: Use this with good quality make up remover pads.
I wondered how micellar water could get any better until I first bought this when on special, I wear waterproof eye makup so anything that might help save my pillowcases was surely worth a shot. This micellar has a pleasant smell, shake the bottle to mix in the oil, apply to cotton pads and swipe swipe swipe. Strips every last trace of mascara and liquid eye liner better than any other makeup cleanser I have tried and have repurchased numerous times. Would recommend to anyone who wears full face makeup, particularly eye makeup. Does leave a slight oily feel to the skin which can be unpleasant - I use before jumping in the shower and rinse it off. My main concern would be it might exacerbate my oily skin but it has had no effect on this. I have used this daily for 6 months
Tips: Use before showering if you don't like the oily residue
I usually use the pink lid Garnier micellar water but when that ran out I thought I would try this one, as it says on the label "optimal tolerance" - I have very sensitive skin and eczema. However I should've read the ingredients carefully - this cleanser contains both fragrance and alcohols. I wish it had said so on the front label! The fragrance is pleasant but REALLY strong. It's also a hassle to mix in the oil with the water as it separates back almost at once, so you get a cotton pad full of mostly oil. After a few days of using this my skin was drier and my eczema started to make my face itchy, so I stopped using it. Though to be fair it did remove makeup quite well. Would not recommend for anyone with even remotely sensitive skin.
Tips: Avoid if you have sensitive skin
Oh dear god..this is the only thing that can remove Estee Lauder double wear stay in place without damaging my skin in the process. I had tried numerous micellar waters before (Neutrogena, Garnier sensitive, Garnier oily skin, Nivea, Simple...etc) but only waterproof eye makeup removers are able to remove that mask of a foundation from my face. And they always ends up irritating my skin.
I'm so glad that I found this product and I haven't even looked at other makeup removing products after I bought this. It is an all in one product that can remove stubborn and waterproof eye, lip and other makeup without irritating my skin.
Tips: Just shake the bottle, so the oil and the water mixes well and then put some onto a cotton pad and wipe away. I use 5-6 giant pads (dia 8cm) for my entire face, so that I remove all of the foundation from my face. Followed up with a non harsh activated charcoal cleanser (Elizavecca Elastic Pore Cleansing Foam) Otherwise, I end up with break outs the next day.
I recently picked this up from The Warehouse as they didn't have my normal micellar water which is the blue active bottle.
I like how it comes in such a big bottle as it will last for ages. To use you simply shake it up to mix the oil and water. It looks cool mixing up. I pour some over a large makeup remover pad and swipe it all over my face. This removes my mascara and BB cream with ease.
I have dry skin and this leaves it feeling nourished but not greasy at all. I get no irritation or stinging. It does have a subtle fragrance but nothing offensive.
I am unsure if I will keep buying this or go back to my usual blue one. Perhaps use this on my stubborn eyeliner which is hard to remove. All in all a lovely makeup remover.
I got a large bottle of this on special from Countdown. Generally I use the standard Garnier micellar water (in the pink bottle) but I thought I'd give this a go.
The smell is light and refreshing. I can't quite figure out what the smell reminds me of, but I like it!
I give it a good shimmy shake before pouring some on a cotton pad. A soaked pad is plenty to remove makeup from my entire face.
Unlike the standard Garnier micellar, I am glad that I can use this oil version on my lips without them drying out. I can also remove stubborn liquid eyeliner, and I use it in the morning if there is any residual black mascara/eyeshadow/liner left around my eyes.
If you have oily skin the definitely stay away from this. It doesn't leave you feeling oily - in fact I always feel nice and fresh after cleaning my face with it - but I can imagine it aggravating already oily skin.
Tips: I will probably stick to standard micellar water as it doesn't have the added fragrance which is probably unnecessary for a cleaning product.
