TRIED & TESTED: Garnier – Organic Cornflower Micellar Cleansing Water

Micellar water is basically my skincare BFF. It’s easy to use, effective and most importantly: it takes very little effort. I’ve recently tried the Garnier BIO Organic Cornflower Micellar Cleansing Water – and here are my thoughts.

The product

In Belgium, you’ll find this product under the name ‘Garnier Bio Micellar Reinigingswater met verzachtende korenbloem‘. It’s formulated using organic cornflower water – known for its soothing properties -, organic barley water and botanical glycerine. It’s suitable for all skin types and can be used to cleanse the skin and remove make-up. The micellar water is Cosmos Organic-certified. So far, so good.

The review

But that’s where the good things end for me. I don’t know what it is about this product but I did not enjoy using this. Does it work? Yes, kinda. It manages to remove my make-up but not as quick and effective as my usual micellar water does. On top of that, it leaves my skin feeling like there’s a weird layer on it.

And then there’s the scent. Does the scent make me never want to use this on my face again? A 100% yes. The perfume is completely natural – props for that – but to me, it smells like I’m rubbing almonds on my skin and there are very little things I despise more than the smell of almonds.  I really don’t like throwing out products, but I’ve tucked this one so far away in my beauty stash that I would only use it again if I’m all out of micellar water and there’s absolutely no way to get my hands on a different one.

The product

‘Garnier Bio Micellar Reinigingswater met verzachtende korenbloem’ retails for € 7,99 and is available on bol.com. I do want to point out that the scent was the biggest drawback for me – if you’re not bothered by your face smelling like a frangipanneke, you might actually enjoy using it.
