Happy Wednesday, marblelous babes!
Real talk: I’ve always HATED traditional makeup removers. You know, those that contain a half oil, half regular solution like formula that seems to always claim how gentle they are at removing even waterproof mascaras. With words like “dual phase” that sound effective, yet I always find myself tugging at my eyelids to get every last trace of eyeliner and mascara off, and more often than not, the solution ends up stinging my eyes.
I avoided those kind of makeup removers like the plague. I’ve since been on the hunt for makeup removers that are not only gentle on the skin which requires minimal to no pulling and tugging at the skin, but also doesn’t leave a weird, icky, oily residue on my skin.
Enter Micellar Water. They are seriously LIFECHANGING and are a staple in my skincare routine. I’ve tried several brands of micellar water ever since I’ve discovered its existence, and one of my ultimate favorites have got to be the Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water line.
Not only are they gentle and effective at removing every single trace of makeup, but it is extremely affordable at only $8.99 for a 13.5 oz bottle AND can be easily found online or at your local ULTA Beauty store! In fact, you can get $2 off any Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water from Ulta.com (excluding travel size) with the promo code GRNSAVE2!
The Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water is available in three different colored bottles: pink (Original Micellar Water), blue (Waterproof Micellar Water), and green (Mattifying Micellar Water).
Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water (Pink)
This is the original all-in-one cleanser and makeup remover by Garnier that removes makeup, cleanses, and refreshes your skin without having to rinse. It is safe to use on the face, lips, and eyes, and you can sing praises because it is SO gentle on your skin and requires NO harsh rubbing. YAY!!
It is formulated for all skin types, even if you have sensitive skin like me. If you’ve never used micellar water before, it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3! You literally just saturate a cotton pad with the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water and gently wipe the pad all over your face until your skin is completely clean. For your eyes, just hold the pad over closed eyes for a few seconds, then gently wipe away makeup without harsh rubbing.
Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water All-in-1 Waterproof (Blue)
This blue bottle is exactly like the original pink bottle, but if you wear waterproof makeup, then this micellar water is for you! This Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water is specially formulated to remove waterproof makeup like a magnet. It is powerfully effective at dissolving even the most stubborn and longwearing makeup while leaving the skin cleansed and refreshed without overdrying the skin.
Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water All-in-1 Mattifying (Green)
This green bottle is exactly like the original pink bottle, but if you have oily skin, then this micellar water is for you! This Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water is specially formulated to mattify your oily, sensitive skin and help purify pores without leaving a greasy residue.
Aside from these Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water, I’ve also been LOVING the Garnier SkinActive Facial Mist Spray with Rose Water. I mean, who doesn’t love rose water, right??
This facial mist is seriously SO hydrating which is perfect for the cool, dry weather that we’re experiencing right now. I love that it is made with rose water and that I can carry around this bottle to refresh my skin and makeup throughout the day to give me that instant glow.
You can also use this facial mist before makeup as a primer or after makeup to set it. Like the Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water, this face mist is also suitable for all skin types and available online or in stores at Ulta Beauty for only $8.99!
