Garnier Micellar Oil Infused Water Review

Has anyone else been getting a little sick of micellar waters recently? I definitely had. I got the hype, bought loads of different Micellar water and compared them all HERE. then one day I ran out and I actually didn't repurchase one. I'm not really sure why to be honest. They're very handy for after a night out or for travelling. I think I just got a bit sick of the hype.

Then Garnier come out with their oil infused micellar water and a while new wave of hype came along. I resisted it for along time but eventually gave in. I was really interested to see how the micellar water would work with the oil. I am obsessed with cleansing oils and they're basically all I use to remove makeup. So I gave in bought it and here's what I thought...

As you can see from the picture above, the oil sits on top of the water so before you use it you have to shake it, so that it mixes with the water. Once you've done that just add a little to a cotton pad and start to remove your makeup. I would only ever use this or any other micellar water as either a way to remove makeup, I always double cleanser with a proper cleanser afterwards.

It feels kind of silky. It's very soft, leaves your skin feeling very soft which is nice because so micellar waters can leave your skin very dry. The bottle says it's not greasy, I'm not so sure about that, I'd definitely notice a bit of residue left afterwards. However it removes makeup very well. Even my toughest most waterproof gel liner & mascara. It removes it very gently and quickly. It doesn't leave my sensitive eyes cloudy or foggy. It doesn't irritate them at all. There is a perfumed smell from it but that hasn't irritated my skin.

Overall, I'm very pleasantly surprised and impressed. I hadn't high hopes but I do find myself reaching for it more and more. I especially love it for my eyes. You can find the Garnier Micellar Oil Infused Cleansing Water in Boots, Superdrug, pharmacies nationwide and in Pennys! It costs €5.53 from Boots which is the cheapest I've seen it!

Have you tried it? What are your thought on Micellar waters in general?
