    I received this from ChickAdvisor to test. I absolutely love this product. I've never used anything like this before. I usually just scrub my face in the evening so it was a nice change to just wipe at night. It completely removed my makeup and left my skin feeling clean. I definitely recommend this to others.

    I received this to try from the Chickadvisor product review club.
    The concept of this product was new to me, as I normally use a face wash soap-type with water. I wear a lot of makeup on a daily basis, with eyeshadow, liner and foundation so I was a little wary of this micellar water at first, but it really did a great job at removing makeup. It removed all my eyeliner and foundation. Plus, the fact that you didn't need to rinse off with water made using this micellar water really quick and easy! I love the convenience of it and how easy it makes removing makeup.

    I already use a higher priced Micellar water and was really impressed by Garnier's. It removes my makeup and leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean without a strong scent. It did have some issues with waterproof mascara, but I find that most micellar waters do not fully remove my mascara, especially not the newer drug store ones.
    I usually use one made for oily skin to help with my t-zone and while this was not, I did not find that my skin was any greasier than usual.
    For $10 for a generous sized bottle, I would definitely buy it again.

    I was skeptical when I received this product free to try. Most makeup removers I have used in the past have left an oily feeling and I've felt a need to wash my face after using them. The first time I used this I fell in love! Nor only does it work amazing, but it's truly like wiping water over your face. No oily/greasy feeling, works really well, and no smell. It left my skin feeling very clean and fresh. I will absolutely buy this in the future! Thank you chickadvisor for the chance to try this amazing product!

    Okay this is my favourite make up remover ever. I am a happy convert to Micellar Water now.

    It is like just smoothing a cotton pad of water over your face, it is a little bubbly, but not greasy and does not require rinsing off. Note - there are oil bubbles in this, that is what micelles are (apparently), but they just rinse away without having to was them off.

    I do have to do a few passes when I have full make up on, but I think that considering the size of the bottle, I don't have a problem with that. I have read that waterproof products are difficult to remove with Micellar Waters, however I don't use those products, so this worked well for me.

    I received this product to review from Chick Advisor. I too, was unsure whether this was just for makeup removal or to be used like a regular cleanser. When I used it to remove makeup, I was left with a somewhat sticky feeling on my face. I didn't like it and washed my face with regular wash right after. Since then, I have been using it like more of an astringent in a way, for quick touch ups during the day or in the morning. It it far more effective this way and does not leave a residue. I like this product, but and unsure if I would purchase it in the future.

    I was grateful to have the chance to try out this product for the Product Review Club.
    When I first got the product I wasn't sure whether it was meant to be used just for removing eye makeup or for actually cleansing my whole face, so I thought I'd try it both ways. Since the packaging said that no rinsing was required, I wiped down my whole face with it, including my eye makeup. I thought I would try that for several days, but after the first time I didn't like how it left a sticky feeling on my face and I still had a lot of eye makeup around my eyes, so I decided not to use it that way any more. From then on, I used it to remove all the makeup from my face, but then I used a cleanser afterwards, and that worked better. I liked how it left my face feeling cleaner and softer, but I didn't find that it worked as well at removing mascara and eyeliner as my usual eye makeup remover. I would say it's an average product, but the price is really good, so I might consider buying it in the future and using it in conjunction with my current eye makeup remover and a cleanser.

    Yes, yes, yes!! I love micellar water but sometimes find they can be a bit drying, this one removes makeup SO well and doesn't leave skin feeling tight (or too greasy). It's also an amazing size for the price and will last you a good while. If you remove makeup every night this is highly recommended! I love that there are inexpensive micellar options on the market now!! I actually prefer this one over my Bioderma!

    I absolutely loved this product. I usually use makeup wipes to cleanse my eye makeup and I was always cncerned with the rubbing. This product eliminates all my concerns, I don't have to rub my eyes to remove my makeup. It's so gentle and extremely effective. This is my new favourite product!

    I was able to sample this item for free from Chick Advisor.
    My honest opinion of this product is that it really works!

    It is perfect for cleansing the skin and removing any traces of makeup or anything else.
    I felt clean and refreshed after using it.
