Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water

I have never tried a micellar water so I didn't really know what to expect from this product. As the label suggests, it removes make up and cleanses the skin. I used this water on a cotton pad to remove my make up and it did a really good job. It took about 3 pads to get most of the foundation off my face and about one pad to remove my mascara.

This micellar water did not leave a sticky residue like sometimes happens when I use a pre-moistened cleansing cloth. However, I have a skin care regimen in the evening after removing my make up that involves exfoliating my skin and then cleansing with a foam cleanser. I felt like I needed to continue this routine to get my skin completely clean. I do have very acne prone skin and I just felt like the micellar water, even though it claims to cleanse as well, was not enough for my skin.

I could see skipping my additional cleansing routine if I had a late night and only wanted to remove my make up. This would be the perfect product for that purpose. I do like using this in the morning after I wake up as I have no make up to remove. It serves as the perfect cleanser and toner for me.

Overall, I do see value in the product and like that it comes in a large 400ml format which will last a long time. I would recommend this product to others and would consider purchasing it in the future at a sale price.

I received this product free of charge from ChickAdvisor to facilitate this review.

Wordless Wednesday: Rosette Cake

I've seen cakes decorated in roses and decided to try this technique myself.  It was very simple to do and really elevates a basic cake.  I'm loving the results!
