{Review} Garnier Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water

{Review} Garnier Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water_02(1)

The Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water for sensitive skin has been my daily makeup remover since the first day I purchased it at Dischem , actually that was the very day they launched it in South Africa. It has become one of my holy grail products, but I always found it to be a bit drying – even though it is suited for sensitive skin my skin can get really dry so I found it to be lacking that hydrating feeling , one thing I won’t deny is how great this product is.

So when I saw that Garnier finally released their Micellar Cleansing Water for dry and sensitive skin I hurried to the closest Dischem and made sure I snatched one! It seems like Garnier answered my prays I thought that the cleansing water I had was the answer to my makeup removing troubles but this by far is the best cleansing water out of the range.

I can’t compare it to other cleansing waters but compared to my The Body Shop Chamomile Waterproof Makeup Remover this works just as well for the fraction of the price! The oil that’s infused really does make a major difference and I can’t see myself purchasing their version for sensitive skin again (that would be the pink bottle) I found it to be non greasy and removed my liquid lipstick with ease not to mention that stubborn mascara I always struggle with. What’s different about this oil infused cleansing water is of course the Argania Spinosa Oil aka Argan Oil that’s infused in the micellar cleansing water. It does nourish and hydrate the skin while removing any impurities and makeup.

What I’ve noticed is the scent, that refreshing Argan Oil scent makes my face smells so damn good! Best used with a cotton pad, remember to shake the bottle so that the formula activates – this Micellar Cleansing Water has honestly hit the original version out of the park and has become my new must have. Just like the others you do get a huge bottle of Micellar Cleansing Water which should equivalent to 200 uses , which means for the price you pay such a bargain I paid R80 at Dischem and I’m already thinking of buying another just so that I have them stocked up.

  • I can’t wait to get this! My skin is really sensitive and I always found the pink one dried out my eyes a little. Would you say the oil helps with taking off makeup?


    • Hey Lana – I would definitely say it works really well in removing makeup I don’t use a makeup remover, I find the oil works wonders

  • love the original micellar water, this one sounds even better for me with having dry skin


    • It honestly is I have dry skin and this works so well especially with stubborn makeup the oil works better in removing it

  • This micellar water with argan oil sounds really great, I have to buy it too! 🙂 Does is great to remove waterproof makeup as well?


    • Oh yes I tried it with my waterproof eyeliner and it does remove it and stubborn mascara which is always a problem for me removes easily

  • Alina Gavrilov

  • I’ve got this but the sensitive one (without the oil) I’m always scared to try products that are oil based – I have a fear that’ll give me spots haha x

    • Aw I don’t know how this works with oily skin ladies but for my dry skin it works wonders no break outs so far

  • I have tried the pink one which I love and currently am on the blue bottle which I also love! This gold cap has not been released in Canada but I have read so many great reviews on it.

    • It only just released here about 2 weeks ago which is weird usually we the last ones to get any new beauty products haha in my opinion this one is even better then the pink

  • Sounds lovely! And I love how it’s a combo of water and oil – so it’s not too drying.
    Gotta test this out now – thanks for the review 😀

    • Than you Stephanie I would definitely recommend this from all the other Garnier Micellar Cleansing Waters

  • I am using the regular Micellar cleansing water but I think I would like this oil one a lot better. When I am run out, I am definitely going to try this one next!

  • Definitely sounds like a bargain, especially if you can get 200 or so uses out of it. :]

  • I’ve been in love with the pink Garnier Micellar Water for so long long now but I’ve always wished it was a little less drying – so this stuff looks like liquid gold to me! I’m picking some of this up ASAP haha! 🙂

  • I am so sad that I can’t use any synthetic products anymore! Everything gives me a rash. I think it is because I keep testing so many

  • I have this and sadly I don’t really like it 🙁 x


  • I’ve had this for a while and I love the fact it’s got oil in as its great for taking off makeup and liquid lipstick but the smell is to much for me, I’m really sensitive with smells ha ha xo
