Micellar water is everywhere lately and I only hopped on the bandwagon late last year.
I first got the L’oreal Micellar water which is great and I had no complaints but the Garnier one which I use now is like half the price for twice as much product and it works the same so it’s a no-brainer really.
Just in case you’re wondering, like I was, micellar water is made up of teeny tiny oil molecules (micelles) suspended in water. When used on your skin they latch onto the dirt, oil and make up on your skin allowing you to wipe it away effortlessly 🙂
I was pretty awe-struck when I tried micellar water for the first time on a full face of make up. It took off my foundation and heavy eye make up no bother at all with just one double-sided cotton pad.
I was expecting micellar water to be somewhat oily but it’s just like pure water. It’s pretty amazing how it works.
I was also concerned it would sting my eyes like every other eye make up but it doesn’t sting at all or cause any irritation. So I think if you have sensitive skin it would be a great buy for you. It has a very refreshing and calming feeling on the face.
If you want to try micellar water then I suggest you get the Garnier one from Pennys for around €3 I think it is which is a big difference compared to boots who see it around the €6 mark. The bottle lasts at least 6 weeks if you’re using it everyday, morning and evening. I also get the large double-sided round cotton pads (here) to use when taking off my make up, they are very handy to have with your skin care supplies.
Tell me what micellar water you’re loving at the moment? Yaz xo
