After hearing the mostly amazing reviews of the Garnier Miceller water, its no wonder this product has been on my radar and my wish list for almost a year. I was always tempted to purchase it online, but never did so when this product became readily available in New Zealand; of course I had to try it.
First impressions? Well it comes in a massive bottle which is made from a clear plastic, and has a pretty pink lid on top. The packaging is simplistic and understated, but I actually quite like it. The see through bottle lets you see the liquid inside that some are referring to as ‘holy water’, and I suppose I get the reference because it does just look like water in regards to colour and consistency. On first look, it seems like mine had fine particles floating through it which looked like dust of something. Not sure what it actually was though. I thought I would also mention just how foamy this cleanser is, and the reason I found that out was because I dropped it, and the whole air space of the bottle filled up with a bubbly solution.
The first time I used this; I just applied it to a cotton pad and then wipes the pad over my face and oh.my.gosh. I was shocked to see how much makeup came off. In fact, I actually ended up using 3 or 4 wipes to get all the makeup off, but I was so impressed. I do follow this with cleaning my face just with warm water because the thought of leaving cleanser on my face doesn’t make sense to me. This quickly became the product I reached for at night, until about 3 days after when my skin started breaking out like crazy. A bit of background about my skin, about from being sensitive, its pretty well behaved with blemishes mostly being confined to my t-zone. Or so it was until I stated using this product and my skin became bumpy everywhere. Not great. This product is great at removing makeup, but my skin just doesn’t like it. I will finish the bottle off because now I used it with a cotton bud to remove mascara and makeup mistakes when I get ready and it work really well for that purpose without my skin getting upset. Definitely worth a try, because if your skin agrees with this, I think you’ve just found a new favourite product.
