Garnier Skin Active Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water Review

After hearing so much hype over the original Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water I decided to give this differentiation a go: the Garnier SkinActive Oil-Infused Micellar Cleansing WaterI've heard quite a bit about this product, and as I've been meaning to try a makeup remover that requires you to shake an oil and a water together, this seemed a pretty good candidate for doing so, however, I do have some very mixed opinions about this, so keep reading to find out more!

I'll start with the positives first: When it comes to removing eye makeup alone, this is incredible - it does a fab job at removing even the darkest of colours from my eyelids, and definitely performs a lot better at taking off eye makeup than the original micellar water does. Also - and this may be an odd things to say - but the product as a whole smells lovely! I can't quite work out the type of scent it has, but I find it to be very gentle and not offensive at all. But then I am someone who isn't really bothered by scented products, and so those of you who are very sensitive to smells may want to give this a whiff before buying.

And now onto the not so positive comments (I call them 'not so positive' as just because this didn't work for me due to the following reasons, doesn't mean that it can't work for you). When using this all over my face, it broke me out like crazy. And so I began to use it on my eyes only, which, as above, was very successful. However I have very sensitive eyes, and I found that sometimes the product irritated my eyes a little. But the big thing that annoyed me about this product: Despite claiming to be "non-greasy", I found it to be very greasy! Not only just on the eyes, but also on the outside of the bottle which is something that really irritates me!

Thank you for reading this week's post, do let me know what you thought of this product if you've already tried it, or of any other product recommendations and post requests in the comments below!
