REVIEW | Garnier Micellar Extra-Gentle Cleansing Wipes

recently I have tried taking a bigger interest in what i do with and what i put on my skin. i am 20 and am still suffering from pubescent breakouts and although i can attribute it to stress, hormones, what I'm eating...all the obvious things, i never really thought it could be anything to do with what i was using on my skin. so, i cut chocolate and crisps out of my diet, i wear less makeup every day, the stress and hormones thing i can't control, but i am also trying different products on my skin. one thing i found were these, Micellar Wipes. 

if you saw my post a while ago, here, i did a comparison on which Micellar water i preferred - L'Oreal or Garnier, and since then i have been using only the Garnier one, and when i went in to Superdrug to repurchase, i saw these on the stand and decided to try them out. i am not a big make up wipes person, i am not overly keen - i was using my Micellar water to remove my face, but i thought this would be worth a try. i am very very pleasantly surprised.

Garnier Micellar Extra-Gentle Cleansing Wipes contain thin silk fibres in a thick, soft wipe.

Soaked with Micellar water, they are specially formulated for make-up removal on sensitive skin. 
Like a magnet, the cleansing agents capture impurities and lift away dirt from the skin. No need to rub to efficiently remove make-up.

The result: In a single step, your make-up is removed and your skin feels refreshed and soothed.

  • Packaging - like typical makeup wipes, they are in one of these resealable bag things (what are they?! bags, pots, packets?! who can answer me!!) but anyway, as everyone knows, these things do not seal properly and the top one is always a little bit drier than the ones underneath. with this, i have not had this problem. the stickiness of the (I'm going to say packet, it seems safe) packet seal stays intact, and in my experience so far it has stayed sticky through a whole pack. in terms of the rest of the packaging, it is a very similar layout and colour scheme to the Micellar water which is expected, but it is kind of nice because it is recognisable. 
  • Availability - as far as i am aware this is readily available in most countries and online as well, so it can be found anywhere! when i purchased mine i got it from Superdrug, which in the UK is one of the biggest retailers.
  • Money - in comparison to makeup wipes i used to buy when i was in my teens, these are expensive, retailing at, on average, £3 a pack. here are the links to some suppliers for you, i think some are on offer - superdrug, boots, tesco 
  • Sensitivity - as someone who has sensitive, and as someone who is also trying to find things for sensitive skin, this has been amazing. my normal break outs always appear less red, my skin feels smoother and it hasn't affected anything or aggravated any of my previous skin issues. 
  • Removing Makeup - as with any makeup wipe, there is a certain amount that it WILL do - like remove makeup. however, being that that is based on the ever popular and growing trend Micellar water it is not as harsh on the skin, and removes the makeup a lot easier and quicker, and there is no need to really scrub the skin, just wipe. i have yet to use it on my eyes on a day where i am wearing eye makeup (which is very very rarely these days) but any time i do, i usually use my Micellar water, but at the end of using that, i just wipe my wipe (that sounded weird didnt it...) just to make sure i have gotten all the last traces of mascara or brow bone highlight off. for someone who has days when i reaaallllyyyyy cake it on, i have not had to use more than one wipe as the wipes are so wet that you can really get most of your face off with just one wipe.

  • Amount - like most wipes (and this is not necessarily a gripe about this product in particular, but it is just something i have noticed because i am using wipes on my face instead of just to wipe my hands or something) but 25 wipes is not enough for me. luckily, most times i go to buy something like this they are on offer so i can stock up a little, but 25 wipes is not enough for me. for me, i pay rent, bills, phone bills, transport, and any other essentials, and VERY rarely something for myself, and by the end of the month before pay days when I am running out of wipes it is frustrating. but like i said, this is just in general, but when wipes are this good you notice it as much. 


i think i have found my new favourite makeup remover. i think it on par with my all time favourite remover by Clinique but at a more affordable cost. i literally cannot think of anything truly negative about this product. it really is as good as they say it is. they do not dry out, they remove makeup quick and easy, they haven't aggravated my skin, and i am very very impressed. as usual, Garnier have really pulled it out of the bag with this product, and i know i will be using it for a long time to come because i haven't found anything else on the market that does what this does as well as it does and for the same price. 

WOULD I RECCOMMEND? every day for forever
WAS IT WORTH THE MONEY? considering it was cheap as chips - yes!
WOULD I BUY IT AGAIN? every month for forever
