Drugstore Buy of the Week - Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-In-1 Makeup Remover and Cleanser

For those of you not from Europe, Micellar cleansing water may be new to you.  Micelle cleansing molecules pull oil and dirt away from the face.  The result is that you can gently cleanse skin and remove makeup without irritating or drying out skin. 

Micellar water is great for all skin types, including sensitive, dry and even acne prone.  The Water also provides a toning effect to the skin.  For years, many of the best waters were found in French pharmacies, on in airport duty free stores.

But now, Garnier has brought the micellar concept to the US in a easy to use, large and reasonably priced versionGarnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser and Makeup Remover, 

I loved using this at the end of the day to remove my makeup quickly and thoroughly.  With just a small quirt into my cotton pad, pressed gently on my eye areas and all my makeup lifted off in an instant (no rubbing or tugging at my skin!)  I also loved how soft and smooth my skin felt after finishing.  

For those of you who don't like to do too much in the evenings, but want to cleanse a little more thoroughly than with a wipe, this is ideal, as after you've swiped with the cotton, you're done.  My face was slightly damp for a minute or two, and then it was completely dry.

In the morning, this is also a great choice for those of you who don't need to do a lot of extra cleansing in the morning.  It left my skin very fresh and is a great prep for primer/sunscreen before adding makeup.

Tip: You can also spot clean your makeup brushes with it, in between your more thorough cleanings, every few weeks or so.

Now you know.  Make sure you're treating your skin to the benefits of Micellar water today! - RLB
