If you haven’t heard of this, you’re not the first. I’m never a big fan of oil based makeup remover so I’ve been looking water-based makeup remover. The first time I saw this product was when I watched Click Network’s tried and tested. Micellar water has been around for years but it was only raved about by makeup artist because it isn’t oil based, making it easier to correct your makeup.
The micellar water is suppose to remove makeup so well that you don’t need to use an additional cleanser on top of it. But I’m just really used to using a cleanser so it doesnt apply to me.
The first micellar water brand made it big here is Bioderma. It cleans well and I use it all the time to correct my makeup (especially those smudges). Plus, there is a strange smell. I’m not sure if it’s just me but I find that smell annoying. A 250ml bottle cost about S$26 which in my opinion is a bit too expensive for a makeup remover. Then, Garnier came up with their micellar water. It works just as well as the Bioderma and it costs $15.90 for a 400ml bottle! Which is very price friendly.
I strongly recommend the Garnier micellar water. Not only does it removes makeup pretty well, it also leaves a clean feeling and no strange smell with it.
