REVIEW - Garnier Skin Active Micellar Water and Clearly Brighter MoisturizerFriday, May 27, 2016
Garnier's SkinActive line has a couple new additions: Micellar Water, Clearly Brighter Moisturizer and Miracle Anti-Fatigue Moisturizer. I received the Micellar Water and Clearly Brighter Moisturizer, as well as a cute mug and David's Tea's Juicy Orange courtesy of ChickAdvisor.
Clearly Brighter Moisturizer $20.99
This moisturizer claims to brighten and smooth your skin and has a pump to dispense the product. i already love it because of the pump and find that 1.5 pumps is enough to cover my face. I didn't notice anything in terms of brightening and smoothing, but it does it's job as a moisturizer and does not irritate my skin in the least. It has SPF 15 which is great and reminds me of The Body Shop's Vitamin C daily moisturizer, but this one is more lightweight. I think it's a bit pricey for a drugstore moisturizer, but it's a thumbs up in my books!
Micellar Water $9.99
The first redeeming point about this Micellar Water is the price - for $9.99, you really can't go wrong. I've tried both the Bioderma and Vichy Micellar Waters, and based on use and ingredients, there doesn't seem to be much of a difference between the Micellar Waters, besides 1 or 2 ingredients. I do notice that the Garnier Micellar Water can get foaming when applying it to a cotton pad, but maybe it's just how the product dispenses. Is it a substitute for makeup removers? Absolutely not - it's more of a gentle toner which is nice for when I'm feeling a bit oily. Also a thumbs up in my books!
Can you tell the difference between Micellar Waters?
