Garnier Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water Review

I was intrigued when I saw this new yellow Garnier. It's oil-infused cleansing water? So interesting! Finally I got to try this new thing.

As a fan of the Garnier Micellar Water yang pink tu, of course lah I'm excited to try this new one. 

Basically, micellar water ni macam magnet, boleh remove makeups and sunscreens plus segala dirts. However, kalau waterproof makeup, maybe susah sikit. So, finally, Garnier ada cleansing water that can removes waterproof makeup.

Ingredient analysis

Based on cosdna, there are a few ingredients that are not that safe. 1-2 safe, kalau dah sampai 7 siap warna merah tu, may cause negative effect lah kot for some people, lagi lagi sensitive skin.

Geraniol: Capable of causing sensitivity when applied to skin. However, the risk of such reaction has to do with depth of penetration into skin, and geraniol doesn’t penetrate skin easily. As such, although it’s not a great ingredient to see on a label if you have sensitive skin, it isn’t among the most troublesome fragrance ingredients when used in low concentrations. Despite the lesser concern, research has shown that, like many fragrant oil components, geraniol can oxidize in the presence of air, causing damage when applied to skin's surface. So, it depends on your skin.

My experience with Garnier Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water

I tried to remove my makeup using this products. So I tuang atas kapas, and remove my makeup. It's oil, so do expect the greasiness. Memang melekit. It's quite good in removing my makeups. Kejap je makeup semua hilang. Tapi kulit rasa pedih sikit. Nampak berminyak. And dia boleh claim tak payah bilas?? Weyyy berminyak weyyy. I can't imagine kalau tak bilas.

And, it contains argan oil. My skin tak suka argan oil. Naik bumps and reallyyyyyyy drying. LIKE REAALLLLYYY. I can't. Berminyak tapi rasa kering. Tak selesa langsung.

Drying, berminyak and tambah satu lagi, glitters. The glitters. Why oh why? Berkilat kilat muka. Glowing but not in a good way. In a very bad way. Entah la, I really don't like this product.

See the glitters berkilat macam tu? Can't imagine kalau ada yang guna tapi tak bilas.

I yang bilas ni pun, still melekit, still kulit rasa tegang semacam, and glitters tak hilang. Bilas and cuci pakai facial wash okay. As if I buat double cleansing method.

Clean skin? Yes.
Efficient, yet gentle cleanser? Yes.
Skin feeling nourished? NOPE
Suitable even for dry, sensitive skin? I doubt.

Pendek kata, doesn't work for me. Nope. Go away. I'll prefer my normal oil cleanser and do the double cleansing method.

Rate: Ummm i don't know, 2/5? Because it works la to remove waterproof makeup


Who will like this?
People yang tak ada lagi any oil cleanser/micellar water/makeup remover then maybe you can try lah this one kot

Who will not like this?
People with sensitive skin, can't tolerate argan oil, hates oily and glittery products


That's all, thanks for reading!
