For years I have been looking for a really good makeup remover that wasn’t massively overpriced.
Last year, I tried out the Liz Earle Clenase and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser. I really did love this product but, at £30 for a 200ml tube, I just couldn’t justify repurchasing.
Since then I have been using baby wipes. I know…….a sin, but I just had them lying around and they are so quick. I got lazy.
I then heard about the Garnier Micellar Water and how people loved it. I thought “Why not?”
I popped to my local Asda and picked up a small bottle, for about £2, to try out. I was a bit sceptical at first, which is why I went for the small bottle. I’m not one to try new things and like to stick to what I know. Well, after using it for a couple of days, I fell in love with it. I went back to Asda and picked up the big bottle for £5…..£5, what a bargain!
A few reasons why I love this product.
It’s easy to use. I don’t like things that have a lot of different steps to take. This one is so simple. Put some on a cotton pad, wipe over your face, done!
It leaves my skin feeling clean. I don’t feel like I need to use a seperate cleanser after. Just moisturise and off to bed I go.
Obviously, the price was a big thumbs up for me. With 2 young children, I really can’t afford expensive beauty products. As much as I want them, I just can’t justify it. That’s also a reason why I don’t do monthly favourites. I just don’t buy new products unless necessary. When I do need something, I always look for a cheap option. This Micellar Water was definitely a good chance to try something new, without spending a fortune.
One thing I will say is, depending on how much makeup you wear, it does take a lot of cotton pads. I find I use one per eye, one for my brows and about 2/3 for my face and neck before everything is off. I’m tempted to try out different ways to use it and see if I can find a way that doesn’t use so much. Maybe a cloth, like the Liz Earle one, will work. I’ll have to give it a try!
Overall, this product is definitely more in my budget and works just as well as the expensive stuff, in my opinion.
What do you use to take your makeup off?
