Friends, I’m not one for beauty routines — I’m actually embarrassingly lazy when it comes to my hair and skin. I always say that I trust professionals more than I trust myself — but I never do anything for my skin. I had my first facial earlier this year, and I was horrified at how much dead skin was hanging out on my face.
One thing I have gotten better about is taking off my makeup before bed. Y’all, I used to go to sleep with a FULL FACE of makeup on. I cringe when I think about what I was doing to my skin (and it’s a miracle I never got an eye infection). A friend introduced me to Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water last year, and I’ve loved it ever since. That’s why I’m stoked to be sharing more about it with you! It’s always an honor to partner with brands that are already on my vanity.
Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water comes in several varieties, and each bottle is color-coded so you know exactly what you’re getting. Pink is all about removing makeup while cleansing and refreshing your skin. It’s also the one I’ve been using for several months! Both Blue and Green have caught my eye, too. The former can remove waterproof makeup, while the latter is a mattifying cleanser and perfect for those with oily skin like myself.
If you’re interested in picking up Garnier Micellar Water for yourself after reading this review, head to Ulta.com and use the code GRNSAVE2 for $2 off any full-sized bottle. If you prefer to shop in-store, find your nearest Ulta store and look for the product in-person! It takes less than 30 seconds to apply. Take a micellar water-soaked cotton pad and hold it to your skin for a few moments before wiping away. Your makeup will disappear along with the dirt and oil that can cause clogged pores and breakouts.
What else can you ask for in a product? Thank you to Garnier USA for this partnership! My skin hasn’t ever felt better.
