Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water vs. Simple Micellar Cleansing Water | emma-elsewhere.com  

Removing makeup is my least favorite thing in the world. Probably. Let's face it - I'm tired, I'm already laying in bed and the last thing I want to do is get out of the comfy confines of my comforter and cleanse, scrub and moisturize my face. I just don't want to do it.

Enter - micellar waters. I'd heard a lot about this category from YouTube and was very intrigued by the concept. These waters contain micelles that grab onto dirt and makeup and remove them from your face without having to be rinsed off. Sounds like a dream come true right? It is. Read on to hear what I think about each product and how they stack up against each other.

 

Effectiveness

Both of these products do an amazing job at taking off makeup. I've taken to wearing waterproof mascara because the my regular formula wasn't holding up as well and both of these formulas make it glide off seamlessly. I use cotton rounds with both products, putting a few squirts on two rounds and letting them sit on my eye makeup for awhile. You don't want to rub your eyes (say no to wrinkles!) - just let the micellar water do the work. If you haven't tried a micellar water yet, you're missing out.

Ease

As I mentioned above, both of these micellar waters are fairly easy to use. You apply them the same way - to a cotton round - and use them both to wipe away dirt and grime. However, there is one factor in this category that separates these two products. The Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water, although a bit better at removing my waterproof mascara, leaves my skin feeling greasy after I use it. I always feel like I need to rinse off my face - which defeats the purpose of an "easy" makeup removal. The Simple Micellar Cleansing Water would never do that to me.

Value

Another difference between these two products is the amount you get for your money. The Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water is $8.99 for 13.5 ounces and the Simple Micellar Cleansing Water is $7.99 for 6.7 ounces. Clearly you get a lot more for your money with the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. However, I feel like I have to use a lot more of the Garnier Micellar Water to do the same job that the Simple Micellar Water does. In some instances, a great product is worth the extra money.
