    Comments about Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Mattifying:

    I use it at night as a makeup remover! I just tried this one, I usually get the original! I love them both. This one leaves more of a satin finish to your face, which I like bc it's not drying out my skin, but it's not shiny either!

      Really Only Meant for Oily Skin

      By Kelsey

      from Kzoo, Mi

      Comments about Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Mattifying:

      When this first came out it was originally promoted as "good for ALL skin, but especially oily" & having loved the other two, I thought nothing of trying this one.

      I have normal/sensitive skin & would use this 3-4x a week & had subsequent mini breakouts.
      With that experience in hand, I assume (& also as advertising has changed) this is really only best for very oily skin.

            I've used this as a cleaner in the morning and a makeup remover at night. Since I started using it I have notice my skin is MUCH less oily, which is perfect for my. It is a bit drying though, so it may not be great for ladies (or guys) with normal to dry skin.

            made me breakout

            By MRebecca

            from PA

            Comments about Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Mattifying:

            All was well when I began using this, bought it because it was cheaper than simple brand. I developed breakouts everywhere that this product touched. My forehead, cheeks, chin, an shoulders. My face became more red. The ingredients aren't great and this product has a high alcohol content... I recommend something more gentle to take off makeup such as simple brand micellar water.

            This works pretty good, but if the mascara or eyeliner is waterproof you have to really scrub to get it off. It doesn't come off that easy. I like it because it's so gentle it doesn't irritate my eyes when I use it. It is slightly ineffective though.

            Comments about Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Mattifying:

            I wanted an eye makeup remover that doesn't leave a greasy residue. I saw this and I decided to give it a try. Thank you Garnier! I tried it and it works. The fact that it's for oily skin is even better.

                Hi Bridget! Thank you for your interest in our Micellar Cleansing Water. For the best results, we recommend to saturate a cotton pad.To remove eye makeup: Hold pad over closed eyes for a few seconds, then gently wipe away without harsh rubbing.To cleanse skin and remove face makeup: Gently wipe pad all over until skin is completely clean from makeup and impurities. Use daily, AM/PM. No need to rinse. We hope this helps!

            • Q:

              Usually, when I take off my makeup with wipes, I wash my face afterwords to remove any makeup/dirt/oil that the wipes didn't get. With this product (or the one with the pink cap that i currently have), do i use this in place of both wipes & the wash? or do i still wash my face afterwords? confused!

                Hi there! This product will lift away dirt, oil and remove makeup but if you use waterproof makeup, we would recommend the Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Waterproof. We hope this helps!
