Personally I love the packaging. The bottle is very pretty, it’s also transparent so you can easily keep check of how much product you have left (aka – when to time your next spree) The colours are bright and appealing, it’s also obvious what the contents of the bottle do from the labelling so you’re not having to read teeny tiny writing to figure out what part of your anatomy it’s for and why. Also worthwhile mentioning it’s not a huge cumbersome bottle and the flip top lid is rather secure, so easy enough to pop in an overnight bag.
However the only thing I have noticed is that it doesn’t visually jump off the shelf. A few times (in various stores) I’ve spent a good few minutes specifically searching for it so could be easily over looked if you’re not careful… or, maybe I just need to invest in some relatively strong specs?!
I must admit I’ve heard such raving reviews about the Garnier Micellar water that I was keeping fingers crossed it wouldn’t disappoint. I always get so ridiculously disheartened when something is so positively promoted and I’m the only human in existence that doesn’t seem to agree with the masses. Thankfully this wasn’t the case with this product… it feels super-fresh on application and (most importantly) easily removes even the most stubborn of make-up. I should mention I do occasionally like to layer on the waterproof mascara and true to its word it does the job of removing it with ease wonderfully.
Overall it left my face feeling clean, refreshed and with absolutely no sensation of tightness or soreness. I’ve quite a sensitive complexion when it comes to facial products so it doesn’t take much to flare up some unwanted side effects and luckily for me I haven’t had any problems whatsoever.
If truth be told I’m really clutching at straws with this one… however I will say that I feel 200 uses is stretching it a little considering I’ve used quite a large portion of mine in less than 6 weeks. Maybe I wear a little too much every day make-up but my bottle has went down considerably so this may be more suited to those who wear much less make-up as part of their daily regime.
Another tiny *personal* gripe is the lack of smell. This may sound a bit of an odd one but I really do love opening a bottle of cleanser and sniffing a gorgeous fresh fragrance wafting out at me… which is exactly why I adore my Olay Toner – the smell is incredible.
Lastly, the product runs out very quickly from the opening of the bottle. Just ensure to keep your cotton pad pressed against it tightly to avoid any unnecessary product spills or splashes.
I’d certainly recommend & repurchase… especially for those nights when the thought of my normal night time skin care routine is just too tiring (yes, those lazy evenings, we all have them girls!) However those who wear minimal/light make-up products will most definitely get the most of their money by hopefully prolonging the contents to as close to 200 uses as stated.
If you’re looking for an effective, quick and easy way to remove make-up without spending a fortune I’d highly recommend the Garnier Micellar water. It’s feels fresh, soothing, great for sensitive skin types and the packaging is pretty too. All in all a thumbs up and healthy 8/10 overall.
Go Garnier, another great product at a price we can all afford!
