Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water Versus Maybelline Micellar Water Review, Step-by-Step Demo, FOTD

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water and Maybelline Micellar Water

Hello ladies,

Micellar water is an incredible product. Although it looks and feels like plain old water, it is made up of gentle microscopic oil spheres called micelles suspended in soft water that attract dirt, impurities, and makeup from the deepest of the skin pores. Instead of foaming and stripping the skin like soap and cleansers, micelles dissolve the junk and retain the essentials. When applied to the skin, micellar water and cotton pads cleanse the skin by acting like a magnet, attracting and entrapping impurities without harsh rubbing or scraping. As it would be quite interesting to compare the same product from two different popular brands, here is a comparison between Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water and Maybelline Micellar Water.
