Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water in Oil - review


I've been using this micellar water for a couple of months now and it's working super well for me so I wanted to jump online quickly and sing its praises.

Long story short, it's the best micellar water I've used to date (and I've tried a lot of them so I have plenty to compare it to), and I suspect that I'll just keep buying it from now on because it's effective, reasonably priced and widely available. More on that below.

Garnier claims/product details:

  • With a bi-phase formula that cleanses, soothes and removes all types of makeup from the face, eyes and lips in one step - without needing to be rinsed off
  • Leaves you with ultra soft skin, perfectly cleansed with no need for vigorous rubbing or rinsing
  • The 400ml format corresponds to 200 applications (on a cotton pad)
  • RRP $14.95 AUD for 400ml, but do shop around (I bought mine at half-price)


This is an excellent product and I've given it an HG tag because it's the best micellar water I've used to date.

Reason being, it removes makeup the best and it also completely removes my waterproof mascara - something that no other micellar water has managed to do until now.

I think the addition of oil is what makes the difference. I’ve used two other micellar waters from Garnier before and liked them both (especially the original pink one, reviewed here), but this is the most effective. It cuts through gunk with very little effort and no rubbing, so it's a time-saver and that's a huge plus for me because I have young kids so there's not much time for self-care. 

After use my face is soft, hydrated, makeup-free and ready for cleansing. The product also never irritates my dry, sensitive skin, so I find it to be very gentle.

Plus it’s cheap and often available on special, and I can buy it from my local chemist or supermarket - which I appreciate because I don't want to think too much about my makeup remover and I just want something easy that I can throw into my cart whenever I'm out buying nappies or what have you.

Do note that the product contains artificial fragrance (it smells like a green floral to me), although at least that ingredient is last on the list so it's low in concentration. Still, if your skin can't tolerate parfum then that's something to keep in mind.

Overall I think this is an excellent product and I recommend it. If like me you've struggled to find micellars that deal with your eye makeup, this is one to try.
