Now, I'm like any beauty junkie out there. I'd heard about what a game changer micellar water was. And it's not that I didn't want to try it, but it just never seemed like a priority ... and, if I'm being completely honest, I figured it HAD to be over hyped. There was just no way a product could really be THAT incredible. Unfortunately, in this case, I was completely incorrect -- because, yes, MICELLAR WATER IS THE FREAKING BOMB.
Since I'm pretty late to the micellar water game, I assume most people already know what it does. But in case you're like me and have been holding out, micellar water is made up of micelle cleansing molecules that pull oil and dirt away from the face. This all-in-1 cleanser takes off all makeup and fully cleanses the face without leaving it feeling dry or stripped of moisture.
And the best part? No rinsing! You just pour a little of the micellar cleansing water onto a cotton pad, swipe it across your face, and voila! Your skin is clean and clear.
I really put this Garnier micellar water to the test on Halloween, when I went as Minnie Mouse. My friend Claire drew Minnie's nose and whiskers on my face with a non-waterproof liquid eyeliner, so I definitely wanted to see whether this cleansing water would actually take off every stitch of makeup. I'm just going to share this short video I took (originally for my Snapchat, but converted to YouTube) so you can see whether it worked...
As you can see, it removed EVERY OUNCE OF MAKEUP from my face! I was shocked and delighted at just how well this product works. It also made my skin feel super soft and smooth with no oily residue left behind.
I am now majorly on the micellar water train. I just can't believe it took this long to buy a ticket and take the ride!
