Makeup removing MAGIC! Garnier Micellar Water

I know right, my title is quite dramatic! That’s the effect the Garnier Micellar water has on me! Let me tell you a little more about it.

Let me tell you a little bit about the product before I dive into my story

Garnier Micellar Cleansing water removes make up, cleanses and soothes the skin. It caters for sensitive skin (ME!!) it contains no perfume  (bitter/sweet to a scent lover sensitive skinned gal)

It is an efficient product to remove makeup as it requires no rinsing

How to use: Apply the product to a cotton pad and wipe the face, eyes and lips. No rinsing required

Okay story time!

I first saw this product doing the rounds on social media, blogs and YouTube Channel last year but I didn’t jump on it because I have sensitive skin, I don’t by into skincare products easily. It takes a certain amount of faked bravado for me to actually try a new product because I know it can go wrong very easily. I am talking red patches, rash, pimples or flaking skin. I know my skin looks flawless, but that’s because I am very picky and I stick to my  skin care routine.

This one time, I went to Clicks with my mom and I randomly decided to buy the sample size of Garnier Micellar water to try out. My mom was also interested so she also bought one. I bought it because I wanted to use it as a makeup remover of which that’s what its for(DUH Lebz!!)

The first time I used it was after a very long night, I was so tired from travelling I just wanted to remove my make up and fall asleep (Please don’t judge me! I am only human LOL) I used the Micellar water with a cotton pad to remove all my makeup and truth be told, my makeup effortlessly melted off. No fuss! However, when I woke up in the morning I had a red patch along my cheek! I was so bummed! But something told me to give it another go my skin might be reacting to new product. (please don’t come for me!! It was a calculated risk lol)

The next time I tried it was well in time so I could monitor how my skin reacts and nothing happened and I was so happy. Ever since I have had no incidence and I use it to remove my make up every time.

My mom also took to this product. She loves it so much and she says that it is helping her with her hyperpigmentation and I might say she looks quite good and if she is happy I am happy!

This product retails for R79.99 for the big bottle at Clicks and Dischem. The one I bought was around R35 I think.
