I think every man and his dog has one of these in their make up arsenal, what am I talking about, Yes Micellar Cleansing water. Back in the day it was something that only make-up artists would use the pricey Micellar Cleansing Water– Bioderma. Then the drugstore brought it to everyone. To be fair why should make-up artists have all the tricks. Far better to share the know how and for all to benefit. I have been giving the 3 main drugstore alternatives a fair go and it surprised me how they all have a slight difference, let me elaborate.
Nivea Sensitive 3 in 1 Micellar Cleansing water
I picked this one up when it was on offer at the local supermarket as it is more pricey than the other Micellar Cleansing Water. It worked really well at removing make-up and water-proof eye make-up as well. This product in my opinion is perfect if you have a delicate skin as it is such a gentle formula. It contains 200ml and the packaging is inoffensive. It really is the formula that sets it apart with Dexpanthenol ( relieves dry skin) and grape seed oil (controls moisture in the skin) included really boosts it power in being gentle on the skin.
Simple has always been a great range that is really kind to the skin. Its effects are very similar to the Nivea Micellar Cleansing Water apart from, it took a couple of goes to remove water-proof eye make-up. It contains 200ml as well, but I just felt the Nivea Micellar Cleansing Water just had that little extra edge.
Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water
I reviewed this when it first came out back in April last year and had it in My favourites in July as well. So to say This is my FAVOURITE is an under statement. It removes make-up, Waterproof Eye Make-up, and does what it says on the bottle. It’s a whopping 400ml in this bottle, that’s 200 uses at least. Great value for money! So for price point it blows the other two out of the water. There is a draw back, and I only noticed this because of using the other two. It is a little drying, in the way that your face can start to feel a little tight if you are not swift about slapping on the moisturiser, but for me that is my only quarrel that I have with it. For me The Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water is the best on the market.
So there you are, my favourite Micellar Cleansing Water. Have you tried any of the Micellar Cleansing Waters that are on the market at the moment? I would love to hear from you. I would be thrilled if you would follow on my social media channels. Click on the links below.
