What a steal: Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water


Models swear by them, every make-up artist I know has one in his or her kit and with their no-rinse, three-in-one formulas they're perfect for travelling and late nights. What are they? Micellar waters, and I for one have been a looooong time fan.
Micellar waters first gained momentum in Paris, whose skin-conscious inhabitants welcomed the opportunity to swerve the bad effects that the city's famously hard water had on their skin. I have always picked a couple of bottles up when I visit family in France, and love the way they work. Designed to be swept away with a cotton pad rather than rinsed off, micellar waters use tiny micelle particles to draw make-up (including waterproof mascara), sebum and impurities from the skin. Depending upon how much make-up you wear you may prefer to remove eye make-up separately, but since micellar waters are free of soap and alcohol they are a way more gentle alternative to harsh face wipes, making them perfect for when you're in a rush or on the go.
This month skincare giant Garnier launched their own version of the new generation 3-in-1 cleanser onto the local market and by all accounts it’s going great guns.
I am definitely not the only one who loves how Micellar Cleansing Water works, capturing impurities like a magnet and trapping them within the Micelles, which are then carried off by the Micellar water and are effectively eliminated without the need for rubbing or rinsing. They are also ‘multi-zone’ products as they remove make-up from the face, eyes and lips and don’t require water, so great for travel and at the gym et al.
And as for the ‘steal’ part? Well for just $12.99 you can get an incredibly generous 400ml size Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water for your bathroom cabinet - equivalent to 200 applications! So what are you waiting for? Get on the micellar train now.
