I had to borrow a picture, so you could see the product clearly since mine is almost empty

I have been using this product for a while now so I have almost used it up, and I can only say one thing; this product has not disappointed me in any way! Previously, we have talked about the original Garnier Micellar Water formula.

Micellar water has been around for a while now, and every brand who does skincare has done their version. I have never been the biggest fan because I find that they do not usually take off  my mascara unless I soak my lashes forever or scrub hard. When they launched this version with oil, I was all for trying it! 

How is it different?
What is different about this one is quite simple, they added oil to the micellar water, and they advertise this as a makeup remover that not only removes normal makeup but also waterproof makeup. To me, that says a lot about a product! Adding oil to the product means you have to shake the bottle before using, since, as we all know, water and oil does not mix. Does adding oil make a noticable difference? Yes, it makes all the difference in comparison to other micellar waters I have previously tried!

So it works?
Yes, it does! It removes the mascara without scrubbing at the lashes or having to soak the lashes in the product for what seems like forever. Naturally, I let the product sit on my lashes for a few seconds before removing it but it is definitely a lot less than with the original. I can honestly say that this is one of the best makeup removers that I have tried in a while – maybe even ever. It is so gentle, does not sting or burn my eyes yet it does everything I would expect from a makeup remover. Another plus is that it does not leave behind an oily residue but to be fair, I do wash my face with soap afterwards so it is hard to tell.

Buy it, try it, do it! It is just a fantastic product at a reasonable price. It works, and I have not become tired of using it which often happens with these types of products.

You can buy in Matas.

2 Comments on Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water in Oil [ENGLISH]

  1. Discovered micellar recently and looove it. I’ve used a bunch: Roche-Posay (good), Boots Botanicals (good), Sephora brand (OK, but scented, yuck), Simple (good). But my holy grail is the Garnier with the pink cap (nonwaterproof). Doesn’t irritate or dry my skin and is super affordable. For the people who had problems with it, the one for waterproof makeup with the blue cap is not really a micellar, IMO. It’s clearly a bi-phase product that you need to shake — pretty sure that makes it not a micellar (but it’s probably good for removing eye makeup).

    • Thank you for sharing all of your expertise with us on the different types of Micellar waters. I must say I have tried the one with the pink lid and I like it for my face makeup, but not my mascara. I only use micellar water for removing makeup and they just haven’t been a hit with me, unless it has been a bi-phase product. I don’t know about it not being a micellar, but I think right now they are placing that name on every product possible, because it sells. But thank you so much for leaving a comment, made my day! 😀
