      Bought this in the trial size to see if it works, boy am i glad i did. I already purchased the large size the following week. Takes off all my makeup with cotton balls. It is not greasy either , i still wash my face afterwards with my facewash, but if i don't feel like it right away it's ok to just use this.

        I bought this solely as a eye makeup remover and so far so good. It easily wipes off waterproof eye makeup. I haven't tried it on my whole face , as I prefer the pink bottle for the whole face. This is the best for eye makeup.

            Best facial cleanser I've ever used

            By NEPatriotsFan4EVA

            from New Hampshire, United States

            Comments about Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Waterproof Makeup Remover:

            I've used just about every cleanser out there. I have very sensitive skin. I'm a pretty loyal Garnier customer, so when they came out with this product, I was 1st in line to try it. I've been using it since it's inception. It leaves your skin so clean without drying you out - the first time I used it, I went back over it with an astringent to see what might've been missed (like all of my other cleansers) & there wasn't a single residual amount of make-up or dirt to be found. I've been using it ever since. I use the waterproof one since my eyeliners are usually waterproof. Having had some experience in the make-up field, one bit of advice (a complaint I've seen throughout the comments) - whenever you remove your eye makeup - if the pad you are using is loaded with all the debris from your face, get a fresh one. Then, after you've saturated the pad, gently hold it on your eyelid (and lashes if you're wearing mascara) for about 10-15 seconds). This allows the cleanser to break down the compound holding those long-lasting eyeliners & mascaras in place. Then, gently wipe away. If you used eyeliner &/or mascara on your lower lash-line, use your pinky under the make-up remover pad to gently wipe under that area. You don't want to rub harshly because the skin around your eyes is the thinnest & therefore ages the fastest. This Micellar Water Works! I don't typically leave reviews, but I've had sensitive skin my entire life & I've finally found something that cleans ALL of my make-up OFF, leaving nothing behind AND, without drying my skin out. I'd hate to see anyone turn away from this product because they didn't have a bit more knowledge about how to use it. It really does work. I wish you all the very best in your skin-care journeys & I pray that this product is never removed from the shelf. It has been my saving grace! Thank you Garnier for another great product!!

            Comments about Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Waterproof Makeup Remover:

            I have only used this 3 times and it gets all stars from me. I use a face wash every night with washcloth delicately to remove make up, and used this product afterwards to pick up any embedded make up. So surprised how much more collected on cotton pad. No tingle, tightness or no need to rinse with tap water. So far so good....

                I purchased this to remove my mascara and figured I'd try the water proof one and I used this product to remove any remaining makeup on my face after my shower and my skin instantly started getting itchy so I rinsed it off and now I have bumps all over my face. I hope it goes away.

                    • Q:

                      I know it says no oil on the front of the bottle, but the substance itself looks oily, therefore we have to shake it before we use it. Does anyone know if this is actually some kind of oil? I'm looking to use micellar water for lash extensions, but if there's any oil and this, I'll have to switch to the other one that's not for waterproof makeup

                        Hello Airee! SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Waterproof Makeup Remover does not contain oil. The main component of micellar water are micelles, which are tiny lipid cleansing molecules suspended in water. These particles have the ability to attract oil particles and lift them off of skin, like a magnet. Micelles are extremely thorough and can remove long-lasting make up such as waterproof mascara or kiss-proof lipstick. We hope this information was helpful!

                        The Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Waterproof is a biphase formula. This kind of formula is great for removing even stubborn waterproof mascara without any harsh rubbing. However, before using this Micellar product, be sure to shake it well to combine the 2 layers well. Once the contents takes on a uniform milky look its ready to use. Not shaking well before using can leave the product feeling like its oily or heavy. Also, a little goes a long way, no need to over saturate your cotton pad.

                        Hi makeupjunkie2017! Yes, the Micellar Cleansing Water for Waterproof makeup is oil-free. We do advise that you be gentle when applying this over your eyes. Do not put directly on top of your eyelashes (unless you are wearing mascara), but on top of your eyelids first. We believe this will help pro-long the wear time of your extensions and help you have a clean, makeup free face when you go to sleep. We hope this helps!
