Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

I was eager to see if all the hype surrounding this product was warranted. This is Garnier's summation of the Micellar Cleansing Water's micell technology, from their website
"For the 1st time by Garnier, Micellar technology is introduced in an all-in-one cleanser. Micells are an active cleansing ingredient which act as a magnet to capture impurities, make-up and sebum on the skin without vigorous rubbing. The result? Perfectly cleansed and refreshed skin without vigorous rubbing or rinsing. A soothing formula without perfume to suit all skin types, even sensitive."

So this makeup remover boasts 200 uses, and that it's suitable for removing all your makeup, whether it be lipstick, eye makeup, foundation etc. It's an all-rounder.

Well, I don't hate it. It takes a fair amount of the water to remove all my makeup and I just wouldn't even bother trying to use it on my waterproof makeup again. It does have a slight make up smell but it's hardly anything. I usually use MAC's Cleanse Off Oil/Tranquil, and this Micellar Water does feel a lot lighter on my skin and I don't have to rinse afterwards. It literally just feels like water. It hasn't made my face break out, it definitely removes any oils, and it's pretty refreshing.

According to the bottle, 400ml = 200 uses. It really depends on your makeup and what you remove it with I guess. I go through about three/four cotton pads when I use this but my makeup tends to be fairly heavy. To be honest, it's good value for money, but I'm still looking for the perfect makeup remover that will make easy work of my eye makeup.

Overall: 4/5
Purchased: $12 at Target but you can get it cheaper at Priceline or Chemist Warehouse.
