Hello all, it has been a while hasn't it? I am trying to get back into blogging again. I have countless posts in my draft section and I thought it is really time I bit the bullet again. I've been feeling a bit down and deflated recently, I am saving up for the trip of a lifetime with my wonderful boyfriend, working crazy hours and saving every penny, I need somewhere to lay down my thoughts and make the months go quicker!
I thought it would be fun to kick it off with a classic skincare favourite; the Garner Micellar Water.
Now I am not going to lie to you all here - I am no skincare expert. I'm 23 years old and it has only been in the last few years that I have developed some sort of 'skincare routine'. I used to just grab a face wipe and swipe everything off in one go - yes, I was that girl. I have always been super lucky with my skin with only a couple of spots now and again which I guess paid tribute to my laziness. I don't actually know how long I've been repurchasing the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water, probably since around 2012, but what I can tell you is that it is this product that converted me. No more face wipes were ever purchased! *lies* - wouldn't that just be the perfect world?! Face wipes have still been used after nights out and emergency removals, but, I have always gone back to Garner Micellar Water and today I am going to tell you the reasons why.
- It is kind to skin; I don't have particularly sensitive skin, but I can be victim to dry patches in the colder months and a few pimples on my chin and forehead. The micellar water has never irritated my skin at all, which is a complete winner in my eyes! There is no fragrance to the cleanser which is nice and feels very refreshing.
- It is affordable; as I mentioned, I discovered Garner Micellar water back in 2012 when I was student, I'm pretty sure I read about it in the blogging world. I needed a product that wasn't going to break the bank and something I could easily get hold of. I have always bought the 400ml size bottle, which is huge and lasts me months on end but there is also a 700ml size available! The 400ml is normally around £5 (but can often be caught on offer for £3) and the 700ml is priced at £8 (but again, can often be on offer for £5). If I ever see them on offer I tend to grab one or two bottles which I know will last me for a good 6 months. Can't complain really can ya!
- It removes all makeup; with the Garner Micellar Water you can absolutely guarantee that it will take off every last smudge of makeup, yes even waterproof eye make up! My favourite thing about this product is that you don't have to scrub at your face leaving your eyes all red and puffy. Apply some product to a cotton wool pad, hold it over your eye for 10-15 seconds and gently swipe your make up away, I then repeat this step to ensure everything is gone.
So there we have it, the wonderful Garner Micellar Water. I do believe the product was the first 'drugstore' micellar water to get any sort of attention and I certainly understand why. It most definitely is my holy grail skincare product.
Have you tried it yet? I definitely recommend giving this product a go, you can pick up a travel size from Boots for £1.99 if you would just like to test it out first. Let me know in the comments below!
