I’ve been removing my makeup the same way for years, the Neutrogena makeup wipes were my go-to. But that has since changed. My roommates are both avid micellar water users, which first made me interested in trying out myself. I can now say that I’m a makeup wipe convert! Who would have thought? Surely not me. I am now an avid Garnier Micellar Water user, and have no plans on going back.
(Excuse the cluttered counter, this is how my roommates and I store our skincare products!)
This is how I’ve been removing my makeup recently, and I love how fast it is. I use a large cotton round with the water, and I can remove my makeup completely in under five minutes. When I used a makeup wipe, I had to sometimes use to in order to get all of my makeup off, but with this it’s all in one cotton round. Granted, they do look pretty gross once I’m done, but at least every bit of my makeup is off!
The micellar water that I purchased is the waterproof version, since I tend to wear waterproof mascara on the daily, and it works like a charm. This is something my makeup wipes couldn’t always do, I used to have to go over my eyes multiple times to get my mascara completely off. This is an oil free water which I find useful, no extra oils on this oily gal’s face!
Once I’ve removed all of my makeup, I continue with the rest of my skincare. (Don’t worry, a post on that is coming soon!)
Have you made the switch to micellar water? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
The Garnier Micellar Water retails for around $9.
