Garnier SkinActive – Micellar Cleansing Water First Impressions and Review!

I want to jump right into this post as I am literally just done using this product for the first time and I want it to be fresh in my mind hence the FIRST impressions lol. I know I’m late to the party in giving this bad boy a try but hey better late than never right? I must admit I never really got fantastic results from a Garnier product in the past so I was going into this with my fingers crossed. But the hype behind this product was to big to ignore and to not give a try. When the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water was first launched it only had the one that most of us are familiar with which is the pink bottle (for all skin types). But since then they came out with a number of different types. Those specifically for oily skin, dry skin, acne prone and so on.

From left to right: dry & sensitive skin, all skin types (original), oily skin and oily acne prone skin.
I believe this was an original as well, its also for all sin types but it says it removes waterproof makeup as well.

Me however, being the oily faced hot mess that I am picked up the green one which is  designed for oily skin as it claims to be mattifying. Now I usually use my makeup removing wipes and call it a night because honestly ain’t nobody got time for the long tail skincare routines that we see on youtube, like honestly how do those girls do it? But I want to try as much beauty products for you guys and do reviews on them so why not hop on the bandwagon.

Anyways, actually trying out the product I must admit I did not have on alot of makeup on but it is a first impressions and from what I had on it removed it really quickly. Also it is not just a makeup remover it is also a cleanser hence the name “cleansing water”. And I must say it did that well also, my face which at the end of the day is an oily mess I can even compare it to the amount of oil that exists in a deep fryer but I digress looked like I gave it a water based cleanse. Like seriously it looks like I actually washed it. So it definitely didn’t take away from my usual lazy routine, in fact i think it kinda added something because on extremely lazy nights when your not feeling to remove your makeup then go in with a cleanser and then have to wash it off you can just use this because it certainly is an all-in-1 product. You can remove your makeup plus your cleansing it at the same time and there is no need to rinse. How awesome is that?


The only thing that I’m not a fan of is that it left my eyelids feeling a bit sticky. And no not my face but my eyelids lol. I figure its because I have extremely hooded eyes and its just my eyelids hanging, doing their own thing and touching but if anyone else has the same problem as me let me know.

All in all its a great product I understand the hype especially for the price. I mean you can remove your makeup, use it as a stand alone cleanser or just as a means to look fresher from having a hectic day. I definitely recommend it. If you have used this whether it be any of the other types let me know if you liked it or not and if you have not let me know if your gonna pick it up. Till next time loves 😘
