     So a bit knowledge of Garnier and micellar water before we start with the review. Created in Blois in 1904, Garnier was named after its founding father, Alfred Amour Garnier. Its expertise has expanded to cover several areas of the beauty field with iconic and world renowned products in hair care, styling, coloration, face care, body care, sun care and deodorants.

      I have use Garnier product since i first knew about skincare and i quite love the products. Oh i also tried their hair color and it was nice. Anyway i heard about their Micellar Cleansing Water for quite sometimes and i even intended to buy one when i visited Singapore few months ago, only my suitcase was already full. Then i saw that it's finally sold here in Indonesia! Yayy! 
     I was really excited. I'm a big fan of Micellar Water like i mention earlier, super useful for a lazy person like me. Plus i heard great things about Garnier Micellar Water that i decided to buy it right away when i got a chance. It was sale on Guardian for only IDR 20k something and i bought both two available type of Garnier Micellar Water, the blue and pink one. I have to admit i quite fell in love at the first try. Then i got more excited when Garnier send me two more of the products! Well, it's a product i must review for sure. Why i review it now after all the hype? Well, like usual it might take me longer to write a review because i really wanted to try the product a lot of time before making a review to prove whether it's good or no. Now i have using it for quite sometimes and finally i'm writing the review!

     Before that, im going to explain a little that i know about micellar water. Micellar Cleansing Water features micelle cleansing molecules that lift oil, dirt and makeup away from the face. This all-in-1 cleanser gently takes all makeup off with no rinsing, no harsh rubbing. Whatever your skin type, there’s a Micellar Cleansing Water for you. In other words, yes the micelle molecules lift makeup and dirts like magnet and can be choose according to your skin need.

The cleansing molecules in traditional cleansers work alone to dissolve makeup so you have to rub your face harshly and rinse with water to completely clear your skin. 

The micelle molecules in micellar cleansing water cluster together to lift dirt, oil, makeup, and impurities on contact. No rinsing, no harsh rubbing - it's an entirely different way to cleanse.

     So, why micellar cleansing water? It can lift makeup and dirt without rinsing, gentle when used and recommended for sensitive skin, easy to use, and doesn't contain alcohol or oil. Based on consumer trial on 410 Asian women in Bangkok, Thailand 2015, after 4 weeks of usage 95% agree that the product is gentle on skin from first trial and 96% agree that the product can lift makeup and dirt. Yup guys, it's been tested for asian skin too!

      Anyway Garnier Micellar Water came in two different type here in Indonesia; Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water for sensitive skin (pink) and Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water Pure Active for oily skin (blue). I'm going to review both of them.

      Let's see the packaging first:

      Well, nothing special about the bottle. Just normal clear water with a hint of pink or blue for each variant. It's the small version, so easy to bring anywhere as it doesn't take too much space. The flip cap is also easy to open and close, no leaking, so it's safe and sounds.

How the products work:

     Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water for Sensitive Skin (Pink) & Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water Pure Active (Blue).

      See how good they are at cleansing mess? From the trial on my hand above i could cleanse all of the mess after a few swipes. Some are really easy to cleanse, like eyeshadow, highlighter, blush on and even foundation. But some aren't, especially the matte liquid lipstick and eyeliner (i use Benefit They're Real Eyeliner, which is really hard to cleanse without using the oil cleanser). But still doing a really nice job after all.

     Well, both working super nicely on my skin. I actually more to the oily skin, but sometimes my skin also sensitive (due to acne problem). But, i noticed the pink one is slightly better at cleaning the mess than the blue one, but not too obvious though. Either way i don't see much of the different because both working real nice for me.

      The consistency is like water and feels like water, just like the name. Doesn't really leaving a weird or sticky feeling after using, so i found it quite good, better than i expected actually. It still leaves a feeling on your face, but nothing disturbing, and that only last for a couple minutes, after that my skin goes back to smooth without i have to rinse anymore.

     It can cleanse almost all of your makeup mess, but not really good at cleansing waterproof mascara, eyeliner or a reaaallyy dead matte lipstick. But most of micellar water can't do that either, so no complain here. Like i said, other than that both of the micellar water does a really great job on my face, it can even cleanse Kat Von D Lock It Foundation, which is reaallyy thick and quite water proof. Well, 3-4 cotton with the micellar water should do the trick, easy to cleanse it too. Plus, it doesn't irritate or hurting my eyes (some micellar water did hurt my eyes), so i'm totally loving it!

     You can watch my review here and see how well this Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water works on my face full of makeup (it's in Bahasa Indonesia):


     I love it and it exceed my expectation. It easily cleaning all my makeup mess, even thought sometimes it doesnt work on a really dry dead matte lipstick or waterproof mascara, but its okay. Most of micellar water i tried can't cleanse dead matte lipstick or waterproof mascara as well, it needs oil cleansing. But other than that, both of Garnier Micellar cleansers does quite wonder, especially since it doesnt hurt the eyes. This baby just won my heart and became one of my favorite micellar water!

+ you can choose which suit your skin condition (pink or blue)
+ can be use for sensitive skin
+ good for oily skin
+ quite soothing
+ moist the skin (after a few mins)
+ doesn't irritate the eyes
+ no rinse
+ doesn't contain fragrance
