Hey friends! In this post I am going to weigh in on the debate whether using a liquid make up removed like micellar water is better than using ordinary makeup wipes . Let me know in the comments below what is your preferred way of removing your residue makeup!
So I would have to admit is that micellar waters, whether that is Garnier’s version or the original Bioderma, is extremely gentle on the skin. I wouldn’t say, however, that micellar products removes makeup in one go – I personally don’t think that to be possible whatever product you buy! I only wear makeup on certain occasions such as nights out or formal events so I normally have had a long day or evening when it’s time to take off my makeup. This makes me extremely lazy. I find it easier simply finding my pack of wipes then removing my makeup rather than trying to find a cotton pad and then pouring the right amount of liquid. My favourite wipe I’ve tried so far Garnier’s micellar water wipes. They are SO gentle and remove even long lasting eye makeup so easily. It is the perfect combination of the two products.
The one thing which I dislike about liquid makeup removers is the fact it is liquid. If I am travelling I always have to keep it wrapped up in a bag to ensure it doesn’t leak compared to a pack of wipes which I can just chuck into my pack. With liquids you also have to remember to bring cotton pads ! Travelling abroad has its problems too as I have to store the remover in my carry on for security reasons. It is just an added and unnecessary product to have lying next to my passport or plane ticket!
Garnier Micellar Extra-Gentle Cleansing Wipes – £3.45 for 25 wipes (offer 50 wipes for £5 at Boots)
Nivea 3-in-1 Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes – £1.45 for 25 wipes
You would think since I rarely wear makeup that my Bioderma would last longer. As you can see in the picture it is already halfway down and I feel that I have barely used it! Compared to the Garnier wipes, 50 wipes would last me well over a university semester and holiday which is about four months depending on usage obviously. Nivea is a cheap alternative, it doesn’t have the gentleness of using the Garnier wipe or a cotton pad but it does the trick. Overall, I think it up to personal opinion, so let me know what is your favourite makeup remover so I can try it in the future! Til’ next time, bye! Una X
