Most Helpful Positive Review very gentle!
This makeup remover is perfect for me. I like to be thorough so I usually use up to 4 cotton rounds soaked with this stuff to remove all of my makeup. It is especially helpful for me because I am clinically depressed and am often out of energy to do much in the way of taking care of myself, and this I can do from bed. It has also been super helpful with evening out my skin tone and texture. Not sure if that is an intended benefit, but it's definitely welcome!
Most Helpful Critical Review Oily.
I've been using the micellar water with the green cap since I have oily skin and I love it.
My local store didn't have that one in stock so I picked up the one with the blue cap and I wish I hadn't. There's a layer of oil that just sits on top and it doesn't help to shake the bottle. This one makes my face feel even more greasy and I have to wash my face after using it. I thought it says oil free?? I'm just going to stick with the green capped one from now on.

I love how it doesn't keep my face dry when removing makeup , it makes my face so soft. It removes mascara and eyeliner perfectly by just placing a pad on my eye.
don't buy it

Does it's job
Mima from Downey ca
I pair this with the Ulta bottom pads that have the exfoliant side. This removes my waterproof makeup and regular makeup. Does much better than my neurogena wipes
madi from Alabama
I absolutely love this product! It gets all of my makeup off and cleanses at the same time.
Gross from USA
I normally use the pink bottle regular micellar water but decided to try the blue because it is advertised to remove waterproof makeup and thought it might do a better job. However, the bottle on this is advertised as "no oil" but what I didn't notice when I purchased it is that there is about a 3 inch layer of oil sitting on top of the water. I used it and it worked well to remove my makeup but my entire face was covered in thick oil. It was gross and I had to rinse it off, so I basically wasted my money. I will stick with garniers pink bottle.

Once I finished the normal size of this, I had to go back to buy the value size! Super easy to remove makeup with cotton pads. Doesn't leave an oily feeling on my face. Love!!
Cordylass from Greensboro, NC
This stuff works perfectly. I usually use Neutrogena eye makeup remover, which burns my eyes and usually leaves a bit of mascara behind. I just used this for the first time and all of my makeup (including waterproof mascara) came off and my eyes were totally fine. Never using anything else from now on.
Hannah from Rochester
Exactly what I was looking for! Erases my makeup with ease. No fragrance and it doesn't sting my face like my old Neutrogena wipes did
Removes it all!
Linda from Madison
I use this to remove my eye makeup and it takes off even the hardest to remove mascara or glittery eyeshadow. My 2nd time repurchasing and does not irritate the eyes, love it!
Samantha from New York City
I got this as a sample and I'm so happy I did because I will be buying this going forward for the rest of my life. I have very sensitive dry skin and this doesn't irritate or burn my skin when I use it. I put the smallest amount on the makeup eraser clothes with some water and truly it gets ALL of my makeup off. Literally obsessed. Don't sit on this go buy it.
Kimmy from Newyork
I only wear water proof mascara and eyeliner.
This cleaning water removes all my heavy eye makeup.
I had used Neutrogena eye makeup remover for years, then I tried this, I threw them away. This cleaning water actually blew my mind away. IT IS THE BEST.
Great for waterproof mascara
AC from OH
I purchased this specifically for removing waterproof mascara and I feel like it does a good job. I wear Pacifica's Aquarian Gaze mascara and this removes it with relative ease. I don't typically remove the mascara completely, since I wash my face afterwards which removes whatever is remaining, but this remover is still quite effective. As far as the oiliness that others have mentioned, I do agree that this leaves a light film, but as I mentioned I typically wash my face afterwards so this doesn't really matter to me. I also have fairly sensitive skin and I have had no issues after using this for several weeks now.
Best Cleansing Water
Stormiela from USA
I have been using this for many years. It cleans off heavy makeup and waterproof
Elie from Salinas
Takes off eye and face makeup, waterproof liner and easy and quick to use when you don't want to use makeup wipes! Overall just really great makeup remover!
Too oily and doesn't remove waterproof mascara well
Melissa from California
Even when shaken beforehand, this cleanser leaves an oily film. It also doesn't fully remove my waterproof mascara unless I rub A LOT.
Would not buy again.
Good but oily
MarsBars from UT
So yes, this is great for removing makeup including waterproof stuff, but it doesn't leave a clean feeling and you can clearly see there is oil in the bottle so you have to shake it before using it to mix it up with the water.
If you need an oil-free makeup remover (for example if you have lash extensions) then this isn't for you.
I like it okay for removing makeup but I always have to wash my face well afterward anyway so I only use it to take off eyeliner or waterproof mascara.
**Burt's Bees micellar water makeup remover is 1000% better - takes off makeup just as well, smells and feels much better than this and is natural!
This stuff isn't terrible but I wouldn't buy it again.

I have tried a ton of other makeup removers; one from Clinique, one from Neutrogena, and other brands. HOWEVER this one is the ONLY one that has worked with in ONE swipe.
I can get waterproof mascara off with one swipe!!!
I love this!
Shinji from California
It really works and it's not overpriced at all! It easily takes off my waterproof mascara and eyeliner. Micellar water is a lot better than makeup wipes because it leaves less waste on our planet. I really recommend buying this!
Better than the neutrogena makeup wipes I would use!
Jess from Fort Worth, Tx
I love how this removes makeup along with using the ulta lint free cotton pads with it, great combo! I use to use the neutrogena makeup remover wipes but it would irritate my eyes a little and felt like it felt a weird residue feel afterwards so I decided to try this & I have no regrets. This doesn't irritate me and removes my maybelline waterproof mascara really good compared to how the wipes did from neutrogena. Recommend!
This cleared my stubborn acne without me even trying!
Lottie from Seattle, Washington
Okay, I'll make this quick! This stuff is AMAZING. I had dealt with all kinds of stupid breakouts, from stress to hormonal to bacterial. I tried all kinds of face washes, lotions and more to help with that, but nothing worked for me! I then had heard that most sensitive skin types benefit from a simple skin care routine and a lot of the face washes and acne treatments we use actually make our breakouts worse! And the chlorine/minerals added to tap water can dry out your skin! (WHAT?) So when I had heard about Micellar water, I figured I might as well give it a try! I chose this brand because it was the most accessible to me at the time, and I am SO happy about that because within just a couple of weeks, my skin had almost completely cleared up!! I was using a light moisturizer, nothing crazy. But all I used was this. To remove my makeup, and went over my skin again to "cleanse" it. I never let water from the shower touch my face, and my skin was THRIVING! I chose this specific one, because I had pretty thick makeup. I have tried the other kinds, they just don't do the job for me. I have been using this for 4 years and I love it!
Removes the makeup but is very oily

Removes the makeup but is very oily
Awesome but shake well
sky from CT
Not sure how the company is advertising this as oil free because there's a huge layer of oil on top. You just have to shake it really well before using or else it is too oily. Otherwise, this is great. It removes all makeup and is gentle on the eyes.
The BEST makeup remover
Leanne from Wilmington, NC
This is honestly the best makeup remover I've ever used and I've been purchasing this for a while now. It's so gentle but super effective at cleaning the skin of dirt and makeup. It doesn't take scrubbing to get eye makeup off either, whether waterproof or not!
