I have not used any micellar water. Recently, I bought this micellar water from Nykaa to try out. Today I am reviewing this Garnier micellar cleansing water. Before getting into the review first know what is micellar water.
What is Micellar Water?
Micelles are tiny molecules of cleansing oil that are suspended in water. The micelles act as magnets to dirt, impurities, and oil and attract them without damaging or drying the skin out. Micelles + water = Micellar Water.

No need to rub to get off impurities and makeup. The refreshing formula is non-sticky, non-oily, and without perfume.
My Experience with Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water :
The Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water comes in a clear plastic bottle, and the lid is pink in color, making it pretty and girly. There are 2 sizes available; one is 125 ml and the other is 400 ml.
Texture: The texture is like water. This micellar water is lightweight and does not form any lather. It has no fragrance at all.
So far, I haven’t used any micellar water. This is my first micellar water. Before that, I was using cleansing milk, which is very good for the skin, does not dry out the skin, and removes makeup as well.
This micellar water removes foundation, Concealer, lipsticks as well as eye makeup like kajal, mascara, eyeliner, and eyeshadow. This is best for everyday use. But for matte liquid lipsticks, it takes multiple swipes to remove it.
I use about 2 cotton pads with cleansing water for my whole face and neck. After this, I use a cleanser if I am at home as I like to double cleanse. During travel, I use the cleansing water and then just plain water to rinse off. My face doesn’t feel dry or irritated after using this product.
Compared to other micellar waters, it is very affordable. It is perfect for removing daily makeup. Honestly speaking it removes makeup for eyes and lips when I use 2 swipes, not in one swipe. I won’t say it worked like a magnet and took out the maximum amount of makeup in one go. Even after taking 2 or 3 cotton pads, the makeup was still coming off.
