If you only knew how badly I’ve been wanting to try this product! I saw it all over the internet. I saw other blogger’s rave about it and I knew I had to have it. For the longest time it was only available overseas but ALAS! Garnier’s micellar water has finally made it’s way to the USA.
I fee like unless you live under a rock, you may have heard of the French micellar water, Bioderma. To get your hands on it in the US though is a whole other story. When I was in New York, I was able to snatch one up in a Korean/Asian Beauty store. It’s pretty pricey and it didn’t pack the punch I was hoping for. I don’t know if maybe I set my expectations too high or if all that hype was just overrated raving for a product that’s not so easy for many people to get their hands on.
Either way, I wasn’t impressed and I was left wanting to try other micellar waters so that I could have something to rave about! When I finally got my hands on Garnier’s micellar water, I was excited but didn’t have high hopes. I was excited because I finally got my hands on something that was unavailable to me for the longest time! Am I the only one like that? lol 🙂
I didn’t have too high of hopes because I can be quite the critic when it comes to drugstore products. I don’t want to sound snobby, because I most definitely use drugstore products, but I’m a high-end luxury brand girl! Generally, I’m willing to pay more money for better quality. With that being said, Garnier’s micellar water blew me away! I don’t know the last time I was this impressed by a drugstore product! I believe it’s 1000x better than Bioderma. It removed all my makeup without stripping my skin and making me feel dry. In fact, my skin felt refreshed and softer after using it! I highly recommend it and can definitely say it’s well worth the money 🙂 It’s replaced my makeup removing oil and has now become a staple in my daily (evening) skincare routine.
Have you tried it yet? What are your thoughts? Have you tried Bioderma, and how does it compare for you?
