Featured Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water Reviews

DID YOU KNOW?
  • No. Unlike most face cleansers, micellar water is not oil based—it is water based. In fact, none of the Garnier micellar water products contain any traces of oil, despite being a great makeup remover and facial cleanser.
  • Yes. Though micellar water is very effective at removing makeup, it is also formulated to gently lift impurities and excess oil from your skin. It is also a cleansing water for everyday use, even if you don’t use makeup.
  • Micellar cleansing water is known for its gentle cleansing action and moisturizing properties which is why it is such a popular product around the world for those who deal with acne. Not only is the product extremely gentle, but it does not require any harsh rubbing that can damage the sensitive areas of your skin, like around the eye area. Check out Garnier’s SkinActive Cleansing Jelly Water with Charcoal— the latest addition to our micellar cleansing water collection—formulated for acne-prone and oily skin.
  • Like any other cleansing product, micellar water does expire. Once you have opened your bottle of micellar water, you have about six months to use it all up.
  • Who said micellar water can only be used to wash your face? Not only is micellar cleansing water a great makeup remover and skin cleanser; it can also be used to clean out your makeup brushes and to correct makeup mistakes. Discover more micellar hacks to try out.
  • As an alternative to disposable cotton pads, we highly recommend Garnier’s Micellar Cleansing Eco Pads. Not only do our eco pads activate with micellar water to thoroughly remove makeup and cleanse skin without harsh rubbing; they are reusable and last up to 1,000 washes!
