It’s been two months since I purchased this! Where has the time gone? I can’t believe how quickly 2016 is moving… (everyone says this) but seriously, like in 30 days I’m going to be done with my post-secondary education.
*fast forward twenty minutes*
Now that my existential crisis has passed, let’s carry on with the post for today.
Garnier Micellar Water ‘What’s in my Makeup’
I would say that I’m well versed in the world of micellar waters, having tried the Bioderma one as well as the Nivea one I have a good idea of how magical they are. This is no exception.
How does it work?
Like any Micellar water it can be a bit stubborn to remove waterproof makeup with. I prefer the packaging over Nivea’s version (which had a tendency to leak.) Therefore if I had to rate it, I’d place it first for price point (much more affordable than Bioderma’s), packaging and how well it removes makeup.
What’s in it?
Formulated without Oil, Alcohol and Fragrance.
Aqua (Water), Hexylene Glycol (Emulsifying/ Solvent), Glycerin (Solvent), BHT (Masking), Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate (Skin Conditioning), Disodium EDTA (Chelating Agent), Poloxamer 184 (Surfactant), Polyaminopropyl Biguanidee (Preservative).
So it’s a fairly short list, which is awesome. Compared to the ingredients in the Nivea Micellar water this much better. As well, most the ingredients rate pretty low on the Skindeep website, the only ones that you should be concerned about are BHT (a masking agent) and maybe the last preservative. Interestingly, this formula uses derivatives of the fatty acid found in coconut oil.
If you’re a fan of micellar waters and don’t have the $$$ to purchase the Bioderma one, this is an awesome alternative!
