First Impression: Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water


Happy Friday Everyone!

Today I am sharing with you my first impression of the Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water. There are two versions of this product a pink lid that seems to be a regular formula and the one I will be talking about today. It is the blue lid and it’s targeted for removal of makeup even waterproof mascara.


What they say it does:

This all-in-1 bi-phase cleanser is surprisingly powerful yet gentle to skin. It effectively removes even waterproof makeup, cleanses skin and refreshes. A multi-purpose cleanser that contains Micellar technology. Like a magnet, micelles capture and lift away dirt, oil and makeup without harsh rubbing, leaving skin perfectly clean and refreshed without over-drying.


My first impression:

First off make sure that if you are going to use this product you shake it very well. You can see the water and the oil separate when it is left to sit and you don’t want to use that on your face it separated mixture on your face it won’t take anything off.

Overall I was pretty impressed by how it removed most of my make up off. It did not over dry my face and it only irritated my eczema when I applied pressure on my eyes. I did have to use three square cotton pads to remove most of my makeup off, but then I used a cleansing towelette to make sure my skin was really clean.


Before taking my makeup off





I think this is a great thing to use if you don’t have any access to any water or if you use very little makeup. I also think if you want to step up your cleansing gave a little bit more this is a great first step and then I would follow it up with a cleansing towelette and a face cleanser for a squeaky clean face.

Have you tried this yet? What are your thoughts?

Have a great day!

  1. I have the bioderma water and have been curious about these cheaper alternatives. This one sounds like a great alternative!

    1. I really enjoyed it! Not sure how it compares to bioderma since I haven’t had any luck getting my hands on it, but I’m sure that they are similar enough.

  2. I love this stuff. It is absolutely brilliant. I have the regular formulation one and even that takes off my waterproof eye make-up in a flash. Such a amazing product and great review 🙂
