and why Youtube beauty gurus are raving about them…
One of the trending beauty products lately is a micellar cleansing water, and one of the highly recommended products is the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. Here in New Zealand, it has already been sold out at some stores, and everyone has been raving about it. Now you ask, what is this magic bottle? What does it do? Basically, it is your ultimate beauty shortcut as it cuts down the time you need to remove make-up and clean your face. Here is a quick round-up of what it is before you get your hands on it:
1. Miss-eh…what? How to pronounce ‘Micellar’
I’ve watched a lot of Youtubers talk about micellar cleansing water products, but how do you actually pronounce it? No need to struggle when you look for one at the supermarkets, here’s how you pronounce it.

2. All you need is a cotton pad and Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. That’s it!
3. Wipe, no need to rub
Compared to other make-up removers and cleansers, using the Garnier Micellar Water instantly removes impurities on your skin. That is why you don’t have to rub your face. You can use it on your face, eye and lips by softly gliding the cotton pad and voila! Make-up gone. Faster than Kim Kardashian changing her hair colour.

4. Do I need to double wash?
No need to double wash. It removes your make-up instantly without needing to double wash. It works well with fake lashes, mascara and eye shadow. One of the good things about the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water is that you don’t have to have another make-up cleansing product to remove your eye make-up. The trick is to let the Micellar Water settle for a few seconds before you remove your fake lashes, or do a second wipe for your eyeliner and mascara. Garnier Micellar Water is a 3-in-1 product as it works as a make-up remover, cleanser and a soother!

5. What is this sorcery?
I’ve been wondering, what makes it unique from other make-up removers? Is there a special chemical that does the trick? I did a little digging and long story short, the Garnier Micellar Water has an active ingredient called micelles that act like magnets. It captures all impurities like dirt and make-up on your face instantly, so you do not to have to rub or use stronger chemicals. A simple and straight-forward product that does the work.

6. What does it feel like?
It’s called ‘water’ because it feels like water. It is fragrance-free which is perfect for those who have sensitive skin. It doesn’t leave a stinging sensation on your face which is great. Easy and soft.
7. Value for money
Why spend extra bucks for other Micellar products? Garnier Micellar Water only costs $12.99 NZD for 400mL bottle (200 uses), so that’s around 5 to 6 months of use. That is equal to three flat whites that you’ll use almost every day for half a year. Bargain!
8. This is what it looks like
And just in case you forget how to pronounce ‘micellar’, here’s a photo of what it looks like. I personally recommend the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water from all the other micellar products available. It works on any skin type, so you don’t have to worry about a thing. It’s soft on your skin, value to money and hey the pink cap is too cute.
But seriously, you have to try it to see the difference and let me know what you think.
