Every once in a while a drugstore product comes along that blows my socks and this one falls into that category. It’s GARNIER SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Makeup Remover ($8.99/12.5oz @ cvs.com, CVS stores nationwide and amazon.com).
Now I’m always on the lookout for an easy-breezy makeup remover and I have my staples that seem to work on every type of makeup, including matte lipsticks.
What It Is: This all-in-1 cleanser is surprisingly powerful yet gentle to skin. It effectively removes makeup, cleanses skin and refreshes. A multi-purpose cleanser that contains micellar technology. Like a magnet, micelles capture and lift away dirt, oil and makeup without harsh rubbing, leaving skin perfectly clean, hydrated and refreshed without over-drying.
My Take: I’d have to say that all of the above is true! This no oil, alcohol or fragrance harnesses the power of micelle technology to sweep makeup and everyday dirt away from skin and oh, so gently! I admit I was not familiar with micelle water before so this is a nice intro.
To use this remover, just saturate a cotton pad/ball, hold it over your eye/lips for about 5 to 8 seconds and then wipe. Proof is in the … cotton pad!
And the price of this one is probably one of the best I’ve ever seen. There’s also a waterproof version available so this will be an easy one to stock up on. Big recommendation.
