[Review & Comparison] Garnier, Maybelline & Sephora Micellar Water

Basically, micellar water is a makeup remover that removes your makeup and cleanse your face. Just tuang je atas cotton pad and wipe your face with it. For eyes, you can soak your eyes for about 15 seconds before wiping your eye makeup away. It is gentle, so you don't even have to rinse your face. Kalau malas, sebelum tidur, boleh cuci je makeup pakai micellar water and cotton pad lepastu terus tidur. Tak payah nak cuci muka dah. (But I'll always wash my face lepas tu, sebab nak lagi yakin)

Before applying the micellar waters.

After applying Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Water. (Focus on the left) Can easily remove eyeshadow, eyeliner and blusher.

After applying Maybelline Micellar Water (Focus in the middle) Can easily remove eyeshadow, eyeliner and blusher. Hardly removes the Colourpop liquid lipstick. Tapi Colourpop memang susah nak remove pun.

After applying Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. (Focus on the right) Can easily remove eyeshadow, eyeliner and blusher and slightly lipsticks.


Sephora's Triple Action Cleansing Water is not really suitable to remove lipsticks, sebab dia rasa pahit bila kena dekat bibir. Totally not loving it. And it contains fragrance, which kind of irritates my skin a bit. Guna sekali sekala bila desperate, okay kot.

For Maybelline's, it kind of making my skin a bit tight and dry after using it. It is also a bit sticky so lagi selesa cuci muka lepas pakai, although dia kata no need to rinse. But maybe just because of my dry skin.

I'd prefer Garnier Micellar Water because it is very affordable, and the cheapest among three. RM0.08/ml je! It removes my makeup enough, sebab normally memang tak pakai heavy makeup pun, so this one is enough for me. It doesn't dries my skin at all.

Cons, all these micellar water can't remove waterproof mascara. Kena pakai normal makeup remover or I'd normally use coconut oil.

Garnier Micellar Water is highly recommended kalau nak affordable and effective makeup remover! Totally worth the hype!  It's small, so I can just campak campak dalam bag. And I love it because it's pink! (Takde kaitan)

I hope you found this post helpful.
