Most Helpful Positive Review Great cleansing Water
I received Garnier Skinactive Micellar Cleansing Water through Pinchme complimentary for my honest review.
The one I received is an all-in- 1 brightener with vitamin C for dull sensitive skin. Which is perfect as my face is combination, but mainly oily in summer and I can at times get dry patches sporadically in summer & winter in random areas of my face.
I love that this product has no drying agents such as alcohol, no fragrances in case you are sensitive to scents( big benefit, because I'm pregnant - smells can be off-putting at this time), or any added oils to increase grease production on your face..
After using this product for about 2 weeks I did notice it would pick up grime even if I washed my face with only warm water to test out how effective it is. So far I'm impressed that it still had the ability to pick up some grime. I haven't noticed any skin brightening yet. I may still have premature results being 2 weeks and that's not everyday use( every other day, but multi time a day usage).
My only drawback for me is it doesn't hydrate, even though it states it's a non drying formula. At times I'm on autopilot or living a rushed hectic lifestyle keeping up with my toddler that I actually forget to apply moisturizer after I use it. Which led me to drying out a bit on my cheeks from washing my face with warm water. This is only due to my previous routine where most of my products I use have some hydrating benefits. So it's really a matter of making a mental note to add some type moisturizer after use.
Anyway, I did notice and thought it was a nice kicker that the bottle is made of 30% recycle plastic. It's nice they are taking into account the environment with there products.
Really nice product, I'm willing to try their other Micellar waters to see if I can find the perfect fit for me. Highly recommend this one for those really looking to avoid additional hydration.
Most Helpful Critical Review Amazing!
I'm someone that uses Micellar Water every day, twice daily (morning & night) before washing my face to help remove sunscreen, pollution, grime, make-up, etc so I've tried many, many brands & I know what I like. Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water with Vitamin C not only does what it's supposed to do by gently cleansing but it goes above & beyond by also brightening the skin. I really appreciate the fact that this micellar water does not leave my skin feeling sticky or irritated, which has happened with a few others cleansing waters I've tried in the past. Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water with Vitamin C is gentle enough to be used multiple times a day while being effective enough to sufficiently cleanse the skin without any irritation. Highly recommended!

I use this product with the exfoliating cotton pads from Ulta brand and it help take my makeup off so much better than wipes!
Works great for mishaps
Cathy from Kennewick WA
This product does not work as well as Clinique at taking off mascara and liner but I do like to use it if I get wild with my liner or mascara. It is good to put on a Q-tip and fix smudges or mishaps. It is cheaper than Clinique so I like to use it for small issues. It works fine for the removal of foundation and I don't notice any brightening in my skin.
Great Micellar Water
Anna from Massachusetts
Really pleased with this product. It works well for makeup removal. If I use it to freshen up in the afternoon, it removes oil without making my skin too dry.
I love a good dupe, but Bioderma just works better.
Jane from TX
This product does what it says it does, but I feel like I have to work more to remove all the makeup, sweat, and grime from my face than I have to do with Bioderma's micellar water. 9 times out of 10 I purchase the less expensive alternatives to pretty much any skincare or makeup product but in this case, I think Bioderma performs better enough to justify the few extra dollars. If you're really apprehensive about not spending more for Bioderma or if this micellar water is just easier for you to get a hold of, then this product works well enough to get the job done.
LJ from Dallas, Texas
I love all their micellar waters but this one is my favorite!
Jlbvk from Michigan
I am very disappointed in this product. It required too much rubbing to get my mascara off, and it still didn't really get it off. If it was cheap I wouldn't mind that much, but it is not cheap.
Will go back to Neutrogena towelettes. Much better.
Kaylee from Uniontown
I put the product on a cotton ball and rub around in circular motions! It's amazing
Exceeded my expectations
Nettle from Nebraska
I've been looking for a gentle micellar water to replace the Yes to Coconut micellar makeup remover I'm almost out of and think this is a great replacement. It didn't sting my eyes or leave any residue after using. I was also able to remove Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick with this! (lighter nude shade Poet) I also love that this is fragrance and alcohol free. Left my skin feeling clean and not stripped of moisture.
AJ from Houston
Love this stuff. Skin so clean and smooth, bright, just feels and looks so healthy! Love it!
I love this product
Mia22 from Sparks, NV
I use this product in the morning before the gym. It cleanses my face without leaving any oily residue. It leaves you with a fresh feeling.
Works as expected
Jenibeth from UT
This works just as well as the other versions Garnier sells. I don't notice a brightening effect but it's a good product. I notice that it hasn't stung my eyes yet like the other versions can (if it accidentally gets in my eye)
Doesn't clean well
Allyd07 from South Carolina
I tried the Garnier Vitamin C Micellar Water & I'm not a fan. My skin didn't look any brighter & it doesn't clean as well as the original Garnier Micellar water. I use a cotton pad to sweep it over my face, after using the pad there wouldn't be anything on the pad. So I would go over it with the original Garnier Micellar Water & I would see traces of leftover dirt. Great idea but not executed well.
Micellar Cleansing Water With Vitamin C
April1963 from South
Didn't remove all makeup. Went over face again with Neutrogena make-up remover cleansing towelettes and all came off.
Absolutely Adore this Product!
Sal from Florida
Love this product!! It's single handedly one of the best makeup removers I've ever used, with great anti aging properties due to the vitamin c infusion, I have noticed and overall brighter/ clearer complexion and a reduction in my under eye wrinkles, props to Garnier, this product is AMAZING!!!
JROSE77 from Utah
The Rose water cleans all my makeup off and leaves a nice glow. I will also be trying the vitamin C.
Great Make Up Remover!

Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water with Vitamin C works great! I used cotton pads to apply the cleansing water and it easily removed all the make up I was wearing. I let the pad sit for a few seconds before rubbing and the make up came off easily onto the pad. The cleansing water smells amazing and has the added benefit of Vitamin C. I will be using this product in the future and recommend it to anyone needing a quick and easy way to remove their make up without irritating their skin.
Amazing and easy to use

Garnier Skinactive Micellar Cleaning Water with Vitamin C is a gentle cleanser that is not harsh on my sensitive skin. Is fast and easy to use it removes makeup and cleanses my face without over drying it. Also it gives a nice glow leaving my face clean and refreshed. It can be used in the eyes, face and lips just make sure not to rub to hard in your eyes. I'll be continuing to use to see if it may help brightening my skin. I'm happy to try this sample given by PINCHme to give my honest opinion.

This miceallar cleanser from Garnier makes it easy for makeup removal melting my makeup right off and making my skin glow in the process I feel like I have glass skin looking in the mirror each time I do use the vitamin C that's infused really helps with my hyperpigmentation

Thanks Pinchme for the sample of Garnier SkinActive micellar cleansing water w/vitamin C to try out. I've used this brand of cleanser before but not with the added vitamin c, it works great. I have super clean looking skin after use and I love the way it gets the make up and stuff out of my pores.
Must have product

It feels amazing on my skin, I love using skin care with vitamin c because it helps revitalize my skin. This does great with cleaning makeup and impurities off skin.
kayla_wa_8vfry from undisclosed
I love this stuff. Couldn't see a difference in the first like 2 days but on the third day a lot of my redness was gone like it had calmed my skin. I would defiantly repurchase the GARNIER SKINACTIVE MICELLAR CLEANSING WATER WITH VITAMIN C again.

I've been using Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water with Vitamin C and loving it. I will use it to take off makeup or even as a substitute for washing my face in the morning. It does a great job with cleaning and my face always feels soft and clean afterwards. It's been a good addition to my skincare routine.

I received Garnier's SkinActive micellar cleansing watering with vitamin c to try in exchange for an honest review. I'm very picky when it comes to my skincare, and I typically use high end products only. This is a lovely choice for micelles water though, and the price point is great. It takes your makeup off without leaving any residue. It's also awesome for cleaning up any mistakes you make while applying. I'd recommend this product to a friend.
