It is very very important to remove every bit of makeup even though if you just apply compact and lipgloss daily. This is my firstever bottle I am trying out and so much excited to share my experience with you all. So let’s get started-

My Experience with Garnier Skinactive Micellar Cleansing Water All in One–

This product comes in jumbo size plastic bottle with a cute pink color cap on it and they have mentioned every minute detail about it which make it appear pretty and girly. As bottle is transparent you can keep a check on the product though they have mentioned on it 200 uses per 400 ml bottle. What has sought my interest is, this product is paraben free, no perfume, no alcohol which even make you more attracted to grab this beauty. As we can see this product is transparent and runny in consistency so be little careful while opening the bottle as there are chances that product may spill out which also makes it travel unfriendly.

As I use daily some cosmetic product on my skin including mascara which make it little difficult to completely wipe-out product from skin, but I must say that this product is really a miracle for my skin. In a swipe you can see entire product effortlessly coming out. I usually keep on swiping it until and unless I am 100% sure that none of the product is left behind on my skin. As it is oil free you can skip rinsing face though sometimes I do it when I am very tired after work plus it is non-greasy so after wiping up you face you won’t feel any stickiness, greasiness, breakouts or oiliness on skin. It is very effective and friendly with my sensitive skin and it removes all your make ups even the heavy ones. It is very mild in nature. I am in so much in love with this product as it is skin friendly, pocket friendly and paraben free.

This All-in-1 cleanser is surprisingly powerful yet gentle to skin. It is specially formulated to effectively cleanse, remove makeup, and refresh skin. Like a magnet, micelles capture and lift away dirt, oil and makeup without harsh rubbing, leaving skin perfectly clean, and refreshed without over-drying.

I Use this cleansing water on cotton pads or cotton balls to remove entire makeup from face and neck followed with facewash as I like my skin to be fresh before bed. I am so satisfied as it has really removed dark lipstick in 2 swipe without making it dry or chapped. I was also afraid to remove eye makeup as eyes are very sensitive but this product made it so easy for me without leaving my eyes irritable plus it completely remove mascara and kohl kajal or any dark product neatly without leaving any traces behind. Even you can use this product on ear bud to correct your makeup, eyeliner or lipstick to keep in place. I takeout some amount in travel size bottle to carry with me or even we get makeup removal wipes of same brand to carry while traveling.

Overall, I would recommend this product to everyone as it has shown its after effect. It has effortlessly helped me in removing my heavy makeup. There’s no hassle when using it and the fact that you get so much for your money is an added bonus. I’ve also noticed a decrease in the number of breakouts that I’ve had because I finally found a product that removes every trace of makeup off my face. As this is my first bottle I am really very satisfied and even this have given me confidence to try cleansing water of other brand.
