The Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water comes in a transparent bottle through which the fluid appears and has a pink cap that closes securely. The bottle is embossed with the product’s essential information such as the method of application and characteristics. It is also quite big in size as it holds a capacity of 400 ml, so we advise you to go for the travel-size bottle in case you’re carrying it around with you on vacation.
According to Garnier, the Micellar Cleansing Water is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive.
This make-up remover has a faint and pleasant smell.
We tested the Micellar Cleansing Water for make-up removal and facial cleansing on normal skin over a period of one month. We noticed that it worked best on natural daily make-up looks as it was capable of wiping off foundation, eye shadow, and lipstick with great ease. In spite of that, you will have to scrub harder to remove waterproof makeup or mascara with this cleanser.
Moreover, you will need to use a fairly large amount of this cleanser on a heavy make-up look layered with foundation and powder. When we gave it a try after a night out, we needed around 15 saturated cotton balls to thoroughly wipe off our makeup. In this regard, Garnier claims that this 400 ml bottle is generous enough for 200 uses; which is not quite accurate since it is all about the thickness of your make-up.
Garnier also claims that there is no need to rinse your face after using the Micellar Cleansing Water. However, it still didn’t seem fully cleansed after make-up removal, so we followed up with another face wash to ensure deep cleansing and removal of all residue and impurities.
On another note, this cleanser does not cause any irritation if it comes in contact with the eyes.
The Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water retails at 7.30 USD / 400ml, a price close to that of other cleansers such as Neutrogena’s Deep Clean Purifying Micellar Cleansing Water which officially retails at 10.9 USD for a 354 ml capacity. In addition, Nivea’s Sensitive Caring Micellar Water retails at 8.6 USD for a 400 ml capacity.
