Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water | Review

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water £2.79 - Ever since Micellar waters hit the mainstream a few years ago, I have been obsessed with them for taking off my makeup. Nothing else seems to compare now and although I only use them as my sole cleanser when I'm being lazy or in a rush, they are perfect for me to quickly remove my makeup before doing a deeper cleanse. I have tried my hand with a few different Micellar Waters, I'm yet to try bioderma in anything other than a miniature size however I did pick up the Sephora offering when in Barcelona. Why am I mentioning that in a post about the Garner version you might ask? Because quite simply, this one is better. In every #bbloggers chat I seem to find myself recommending this over and above any other product and the only downside to it is that the Sephora version has a really handy pump! I will, however, be dispensing this beauty into that once I've finished all of the Sephora one up. 
This leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean and I have no qualms in leaving my skin at that and popping my moisturiser on over the top. I do mostly cleanse further after using a hot cloth cleanser however it doesn't feel like a necessity, more of a luxury. This removes even the most stubborn of mascaras (Benefit's Roller Lash, I'm looking at you here...) with absolute ease and in just three cotton buds (one for each eye and then one for all over, of course) all of my make up is removed. I find that I can remove my makeup in much less time when using this and whereas I'd often have to scrub at my eyes a little, if I simply hold this over them for 10 seconds and then wipe away, 99% of my mascara and eye makeup is gone and I only need to do a tiny wiggle to get the rest. 
At only £2.79 at Boots, you need to go and snap this up, what do you really have to lose?! It's usually £4.99 I believe and even at that it's a bargain, outweighing it's must more expensive components it's by far my favourite dupe of 2015 so far. It's less soapy than Sephora and more luxurious than L'oreal. I found that because the L'Oreal version had a fairly flimsy flip lid and it just poured out, that I had about 3 occasions where it leaked all of my makeup bag when travelling, however the cap on this is much sturdier and it doesn't seem to pour out quite as easily, meaning that I don't hold my breath every time I unpack it to see what damage it's caused. This is one that I'm sure I will repurchase over and over again, although I think I'll always transfer it in to the Sephora holder purely for each, I think I'm now fairly sorted when it comes to my makeup removal technique.
