After stepping back for a week and having a much needed break from Shaunyland, I thought the best way to open up the gates again would be to show you something that I’m truly loving at the moment; the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water.
I’ve raved about the Bioderma Crealine H20 Cleansing Water on way too many occasions so I think we all know the kind of despair I was in when I realised that I would soon be out of the magical stuff. Funnily, I’d spotted the press launch for this Garnier Micellar Water online and began to hear many reviews that this was very similar. So, I started a nationwide search (i.e. I looked on FeelUnique and went to my two local Boots stores) and I finally got my paws on a bottle of the stuff.
I don’t think it takes a rocket scientist to immediately identify that this bottle looks remarkably similar to the Bioderma cleansing water. It’s also pretty clear that this stuff promises almost exactly the same things as Bioderma does. Luckily, this stuff does what it promises and is just as good as (if not better) than the Bioderma original! Hazaar!
Like the Bioderma cleansing water, this stuff is good at removing some pretty stubborn makeup which is something that I didn’t think the L’Oreal Micellar Water managed to do. It also leaves my skin feeling refreshed and genuinely well cleansed, which is something that I thought was there after having used the Bioderma Crealine water, but the feeling wasn’t as clear as it is with this.
What is different to Bioderma, though, is that I find myself needing a lot less of the stuff on a cotton wool pad than I did with the Bioderma original. As well as that, the bottle is more cylinder-based as opposed to the round base of the Bioderma Micellar Water meaning that getting product onto a cotton wool pad is a heck of a lot easier, and also means that not as much product is lost and wasted in the process.
All in all, this stuff is the bomb and if you haven’t tried it yet then you really have to. Not only is it amazingly similar to Bioderma Water, but the price tag is far from similar with a total saving of around 15 quid. Get in.
