Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water Obsession and Review


It is no secret that I'm pressed for time. When I actually have time, it is pretty easy for me to take 2 hours to get ready to run to the grocery store. Don't you think that calls for a fresh manicure? I sure do! What about this new face mask, or maybe I should really add a few beachy waves to my hair? It can get out of control very quickly. Unfortunately, my days of unlimited primping time are long gone. Instead, I'm usually trying to get everything done in as little time as possible, and it isn't unusual for one of my daughters to be "getting ready" with me. Given my propensity for spending too much time getting ready, I love any time that I can combine steps in my beauty routine, get great results, and save a little time. One of the ways I've been doing that lately, and satisfying my own deep-seated need for super clean skin and clear pores, is using Micellar Water. Garnier SkinActive® has just released 2 new Micellar Cleansing Waters, and they're all kinds of amazing.


Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water Obsession and Review

Both of the Garnier SkinActive® Micellar Cleansing Waters feel like regular water, with just a few swipes of a cotton round, they remove all of your makeup and dirt. There's no scrubbing, no left behind raccoon eyes of mascara or sticky residue on my skin. I don't even have to rinse it off. What is left behind is clean skin, without any residue, and there's no makeup left over. It is ready to apply skin care like serums or moisturizer, or even just reapply makeup again. I've been using the waterproof version of the Garnier SkinActive® Micellar Cleansing Water, it comes with a blue cap and really does remove 100% of all my eye makeup such as mascara and eye liner without any issues. I've mostly been reaching for this version because I'm still swimming in my pool a lot, so I'm wearing waterproof eyeliner, mascara and concealer every day. The products are notoriously difficult to remove; I've found that getting everything off without leaving behind a dark ring of mascara under my eye is pretty difficult. I soak a cotton round with Garnier SkinActive® Micellar Cleansing Water and press it against my closed eye for about 5-10 seconds. Then I gently wipe and all of my stubborn makeup easily comes off!


The micelle technology in the Cleansing Water is pretty interesting. They are little magnets basically for makeup, dirt and oil. They completely surround these things when they're on your skin, making them very easy for the water to wipe up and away, off of your face. They are oil-free, alcohol-free, and fragrance-free, so perfect for sensitive skin like mine. While Garnier SkinActive® Micellar Cleansing Water has been perfect for removing all of my makeup at the end of a long day, I've also been using it first thing in the morning to refresh and gently cleanse my skin. Since I'm not wearing any of my waterproof makeup at that time, I just use the original formulation in the morning. I also use the original formula any time I'm not wearing my budge-proof waterproof makeup. I even use it in the middle of the afternoon to quickly remove makeup and reapply. I mostly do this with my under eye concealer, but sometimes to my forehead and down my nose if my t-zone is extra shiny due to heat and humidity. The formula just leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh, there's nothing left behind on my skin to interfere with makeup application. So, a few quick swipes with a cotton round, and then I reapply some concealer and powder really quickly. It does take a few minutes longer than applying another layer of concealer, but the added layer of product will look cakey and make me look tired and old. It really is worth the time to remove the makeup and reapply a completely fresh application of product. I've been keeping both of my bottles of Garnier SkinActive® Micellar Cleansing Water on my bathroom vanity, right next to my cotton rounds. It is easy to grab whichever bottle I need and quickly clean off my face. They're perfect for those nights that I'm completely exhausted and just feel like falling into bed without washing off my face. It's so fast that I really have no excuse to not to remove everything at the end of the day.

  3. I am going to have to check this stuff out!! Anything to get that waterproof eyeliner off! Lately my biggest time saver is cutting back on hair products...just some amplifying foam at the top, and a smear of leave-on conditioner on the ends makes it super quick. And honestly my hair has looked better lately!

  12. A beauty product that I love is my no show concealer that is also packed with vitamins E and C, plus UV protection (great for under eyes). This saves me time not having to put sunscreen under my eyes. And I use a foundation with sunscreen for the rest of my face.

  27. It seems everything I use takes up time. LOL But I do have a favorite beauty item: Airelle cleanser. It not only cleans but it exfoliates and can be used daily. I think it works best when I use a skin cleaning brush (Clarisonic).
