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.

Alo from …
I bought this thinking that it would be better than the regular blue bottle but instead it was just super oily. There's this thick layer of like oil just sitting at the top. I had to shake it a bunch in order for it to mix properly and when I put it on my face it felt like I was putting straight oil on my face. I'll stick to the regular one from now on.
Great at taking off waterproof mascara and liquid lipstick!
J. Yang from Wilmington, NC
I only use this product to take off my waterproof mascara and liquid lipstick. The waterproof mascara can be stubborn to get off, so this is a wonderful first step before I go in with an oil cleanser/balm to get the rest off.
Took ALL My makeup off!
Brandis from Northeast AR
It literally took all my makeup off! I've been wanting to try this for a few years now and I'm so glad I did. 10/10 Highly recommend!
had a weird separation thing going on
k.s from US
I loved the other two versions of this so I thought I'd try out the waterproof one. I don't know if maybe it just got messed up in shipping, but it looks like oil and water if I don't shake it up EXTREMELY well. It leaves an oily residue on my face and it hardly removes even regular mascara. Definitely sticking to the other two.
Doesn't remove my waterproof mascara
Labra from Bloomfield, NJ
This hardly removes any makeup. I don't even think it removes my Laroche Posay sunscreen properly. Too bad I bought a jumbo size and now have to go through it. I can literally see my waterproof mascara under my eyes and on my eyelashes. So, I wouldn't repurchase.
new formula or cheap producers
dr from Texas
something happened here, i've been using this for YEARS. suddenly- my last two bottles do not work the way they're supposed to. it takes about 6 cotton pads of this stuff to get my mascara off, same stuff i've been using for years. ive noticed it doesn't have the same
texture either, it's like straight water. either they changed the formula and ratios r off or they're skimping out on something. time to shop around.

I was a bit skeptical of trying this product out since I've had bad experiences with other micellar products in the past but I have to say that I'm impressed. It removed all of my makeup and waterproof eyeliner without leaving any oily residue like my regular makeup remover does. It left my skin soft and moisturized as well. Will definitely be buying again.
Kaylie from Dallas, Texas
I've been using the product for a few weeks now and love it. I typically wear quite a bit of makeup (foundation/powder, blush/bronzer, eyeliner/mascara, and brow pomade) and it removes everything completely. It is pretty oily feeling so I'll always just shower after using or go over it with a wet wash cloth.
Only for my waterproof eye makeup
Lynette from Guam
I have the biggest bottle of this, and for sure it will last me a long time. I only use this to remove my eye make up, waterproof mascara and eyeliner. Like most claim, its a little greasy, but it doesn't bother me and you only need a little on a cotton pad, or makeup eraser. I would recommend putting a little on cotton pad, then placing on eye, let it sit for a little, the gently swipe away makeup up. It is the eye area, so do not rub harshly
Works very well
Jess from Manteca CA
Does it's job, removes all waterproof makeup easily but it leave my eyelids a bit irritated so I try to not use it everyday. Still amazing though
laurenb200 from Houston, Tx
I usually gravitate towards cleansing balms and cleansing oils but I decided to pick this up on a whim and I'm realizing what I was missing out on. I use this on a makeup eraser and just gently rub it around my entire face and it gets absolutely EVERYTHING off. I wear a LOT of makeup and it doesn't struggle to get anything off. I am amazed and will continue to buy this for probably ever.
? from Brooklyn New York
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
meh from Cleveland, TN

my go to!!
chloe from texas
the best makeup remover!! literally removes everything i swear by this product. i recommend getting the biggest size because lasts me 1+ year for me !!!
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.
Nicole from East Newark, NJ
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
