Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water Review

New Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water, for all skin types
When my Bioderma cleansing water ran out I was pretty devastated. The large, 500ml bottle lasted me over a year, and although I constantly wondered why I spent so much on a cleansing water,  near the end it had become apparent how much I relied on it to remove my makeup.  I talked myself out of purchasing another at Priceline, and I'm glad I did, because then I wouldn't have noticed Garnier's new micellar water for a quarter of the price.

After testing it out for a few weeks now, I can't tell the difference between the two. It's unscented, non-irritating and can be used on your eyes and lips as well as your face. Even the bottles look somewhat identical. The only difference is the six month shelf life. I thought that was a bit short, and I may struggle to use it up in that time, but if you're one who uses a cleansing water everyday than it should be fine.

This cleansing water is great value for money, 400mls for only $8. Bioderma is currently retailing at around $30 on Australian shelves, and that's only for the 250ml bottle! If you're unwilling to spend the big bucks on some of the French cleansing waters, then I think this would be the perfect option. It's also great to see some new Garnier products coming in. I noticed they have a whole new range or cleansing milks and foam cleansers at my local Priceline. It's good to see we're finally catching up with the rest of the world!


  1. Love the review :) just wondering where you found out about the 6mth shelf life from..??

    1. Hey Allyce! On the back of the majority of skincare and cosmetic products you'll find a little symbol of an open jar with a number in it. This indicates the products lifespan after opening. To be honest, I don't always use them within that time...
