Greetings and Assalamualaikum.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water Review & Hack. Hi, everyone. Happy Sunday and have a nice day. Let's remove make-up and be fresh! I bet, most will agree with me that the first one step to have a healthy looking skin is cleansing. You know, when we didn't clean our face thoroughly, the pores might clogged with leftovers make-up and impurities, causes the pimples to appear. Cleansing is essential but please, don't over do it. And here I am sharing about one of my favorite micellar cleansing water, Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water Review

If this is your first time hearing about micellar water, micellar water is made up of micelles (tiny ball of cleansing oil molecules) suspended in soft water. This micelles can captures and lifts away residue from face, eyes and lips like a magnet without drying out the skin. Therefore, micellar water can be used as a facial wash, makeup remover and moisturizer all in one. 

Before I became one of the fans, I heard many positive feedback from users and I am eager to try out myself. How can just a clear water can be any different? Yes, at first it looks like water for me. It has the viscosity of water but it has a different texture than water. Try to clean your face using cleansing foam, rinse well with water and then glide a facial tissue soaked​ with micellar water on your face. You will clearly see the foam residue during the process. Now I know, Micellar Cleansing Water is not just an ordinary water.

Make-up remover

6 Ways to Use Micellar Cleansing Water:

1. Cleanser & Make-up Remover
The obvious function of Micellar Cleansing Water is definitely as a cleanser and make-up remover. Micellar water has particles called micelles which attract dirt and impurities like a magnet and lift them off your face (as mention before), it can remove any traces of make-up, dirt, sweat or oil from our skin. 

How: Soak two cotton balls with micellar water then lightly glide them over your face to cleanse.

2. To Clean Make-up Brushes
Make-up brushes should be cleaned regularly (at least once a week). This is because they come into frequent contact with our skin and can harbor dirt, oil and bacteria. Noted that, using dirty brushes can cause our skin to break out.

How: Pour micellar water into a clean bowl, dip and clean your make-up brushes. Or saturate a cotton pad and press against the bristles of your brushes.
Alert: Avoid the metal part as this can damage your makeup brushes. 

3. Double Cleansing
I love the great job micellar water did on it's own when cleansing my face. But, I prefer to double cleansing my face especially when I have a heavy make-up on because double cleansing is a great way to deep clean our face after a long day.

How: Using the same step as cleansing/removing make-up using micellar water then following with facial cleanser to completely remove all traces of makeup and oil.

4. Micellar Water Skin Mist
I do love skin mist so much. It did a great job in keeping my face moisturize. A micellar water is perfect to freshen the skin. What is great was, it doesn't dry out the skin and at the same time lift off any dirt or pollution.

How: Pour Micellar Water into a spray bottle and use it as a refreshing while you are hiking or exercising outdoors, while waiting for the traffic, everywhere and anytime you need an instant fresh.

5. Perfect Uneven Make-up with Micellar Water
Smudged eyeliner, overdrawn brows or lipstick mishaps while applying make-up is not a big problem when we have micellar water. Use micellar water when you need a little spot clean because micellar water is great to fix things. 

How: Apply micellar water to a q-tip then remove the make-up blunder easily.

Applying make-up sometimes become a little bit troublesome when it (foundation for example) spilled and attached to clothes or scarf. Worry not, we have micellar cleansing water that can clean the dirt on fabrics. Even dirt on furniture and carpet can be solve using micellar water.

How: Soak cotton ball with micellar water, rub the dirt on fabric and clean it.
