Comments about Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water & Waterproof Makeup Remover:

I went into Ulta to just get new cleanser and heard a lot of good things online about, plus it was inexpressive, so i picked it up. I think it works fine, nothing to get hyped over. I don't hate it but it very difficult to take off my waterproof makeup with which was one of the reasons i got it. Again it's okay but i don't think i would recommend it or buy it again. Just think you can find better.

    Comments about Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water & Waterproof Makeup Remover:

    I typically love all garnier skincare, and often find that it is the most gentle on my combination/dry/sensitive skin. My roommate warned me that this remover was making her skin red and peel, especially around her eyes, nose, and mouth. I tried it anyway because I've seen such great reviews, but sure enough just 3 days later, my eyes have rough, peeling dry patches surrounding, my nose is very raw and peeling, and i'm quite disappointed. It works nicely as far as removing makeup, but is not worth what it's done to my face.

        Comments about Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water & Waterproof Makeup Remover:

        Did not work at all for me. Had to follow with makeup wipes and washing my face. Disappointing. Just buy regular makeup remover instead. I'm surprised there are so many positive reviews, and frankly not sure whether they're real/non sponsored reviews because this stuff sucks

        Have been using this product for a year now.
        Works amazing for getting all shades of red lipstick off. It is a little greasy after used byt then drys with in a minute. It is amazing on my skin and doesn't dry it out like make up wipes.

              It works so well! It's way faster than a makeup wipe (in my opinion). It leaves your soon feeling slick, not necessarily greasy, but slick.

                My skin is pretty oily and acne prone. Would this product be a good option for me too? I know the instructions say it's not necessary to wash after cleansing with this product, but since I'm oily, am I better offering this as a makeup remover and using face wash also?

                  The Micellar Cleansing Water & Waterproof Makeup Remover is great a gentle cleanser and makeup remover. However, oily, acne prone skin could use more intensive cleaning through out most of the week.
                  Consider using one of our Clean + cleansers targeting oily and acne prone skin. Take a look at the Clean + Shine Control Cleansing Gel, the Clean + Pore Purifying Clay Cleanser Mask, the Clean+ Blackhead Eliminating Scrub and the Clean + Purifying Oil-Free Cleansing Towelettes
                  Use one of these cleansers after you have removed your makeup with the Micellar Water for a deep down clean that will help to remove excess oils and clear out clogged pores!

The Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Waterproof Makeup Remover & Cleanser will remove both washable and waterproof makeup, Check to see if your gel liner is a waterproof formula to determine which Micellar water will work best for you.
