So if you have been following me on Facebook you would have seen that I bought both these two products over the last few weeks.
Micellar waters are the new "big" thing in the skincare world.
They have been a staple in most makeup artists kits with Bioderm been the most popular. However it isn't readily available in Ireland or the UK just yet.
So when L'Oreal and Garnier both released their own versions of this magical water there was great excitement (Well I was excited anyway!!!)
What is Micellar Cleansing Water?
This is a God send for those of you who are still using those demon facewipes (Wipes don't actually cleanse worth a damn and totally dehydrate your skin because they are full of alcohol)...
Or worse still you don't actual bother to remove your makeup at all!!!!!!!
tut tut tut.
Basically it's an non alcohol based cleanser that combines water and oil for quick and easy removal of daily dirt, grime and makeup.
You just apply it to a cotton pad and swipe it over your face.
If you are a REALLY good girl you would then use an oil or cream cleanser to give your skin the cleanse it really needs as the Micellar Solution is only a quick fix.
Anyhow back to the two I have been trying out.
Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water removes makeup, cleanses and soothes the skin. It is completely fragrance free and suitable for sensitive skin. It can be used all over the face including your eyes (even though it doesn't really take off all your mascara or very heavy liner very well).
It comes in a huge 400m bottle and retails at €6.29.
I love how affordable it is and it can be bought in
The L'Oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution DOES EXACTLY THE SAME THING -
There is literally NO DIFFERENCE
Why you may ask? Well because this is the EXACT SAME PRODUCT sold in different bottles.
As you can see from the picture above both product contain the exact same ingredients. And as it happens L'Oreal own Garnier!! So basically L'Oreal launched their product first and a few weeks later they stick the same product in a Garnier bottle and sell to the unsuspecting public.
So it really doesn't matter which one you buy. Both will remove your makeup quickly and easily, leaving your skin feeling clean and fresh.
They are great for when you feel too lazy to do a full cleanse or are too tired after a night out to take off your makeup before bed.
The Garnier is better value. You get 400mls for RRP €6.29 whilst the L'Oreal is a 200ml bottle and RRP is €6.69.
Have you every tried any of the Micellar Waters?
