Oh My Gosh I’m Finally Using Micellar Water! 

…and it hates my skin 😦

Guys, I am so upset by this *sigh*

So, I got Garnier’s Micellar Cleansing Water in a 3 for 2 deal with Sarah (yep, I hang out with her A LOT) and her sister at Boots and I was so excited to try this. I had heard the most glorious things about this.

After a day of full makeup, I reached for the cotton pads and began to generously pour the water on, gently rubbing away my layers.

I studied the pads to find the makeup and I smiled- this truly did what it said it would!

I was over the moon- finally a quick solution to taking off the makeup. I used it the next morning and the following night and it was then when I noticed my skin.

Oh my goodness what had happened to my skin.

I was covered in spots, tiny spots around my nose, big zits on my forehead and cheeks, red skin which looked sore. Of course it had to be this holy grail beauty product.

I sighed in annoyance.

I had just started to clear my skin up from a bad breakout from a overly exfoliating face mask. What was going on here?!

Luckily, my spots seemed to have cleared up after a week and I have fabulous skin again. I had to use a lot of tea tree oil and lavender though.

I’m not sure what happened here, has anyone else had this problem? Are there any other uses for this water since I’ve now paid for it haha!

    do you rinse it afterwards with regular water?
    i always do this with micellar stuff! i know it says it’s not necessary, but i do it anyways.
    just like i would after any other face cleaning product
    i’m not convinced it should stay on your face afterwards.
    i haven’t had any bad reaction with this micellar water yet!
    hope this helps 🙂

        yes i do! i’m constantly trying new micellar waters and this is one of the best i’ve got thus far! and good value for money!
        but maybe there’s some ingredient in it that your skin doesn’t like though?
        if you’re giving it another go you should definitely rinse it afterwards and see how that goes!

        I wondered about that! There’s a few Lush products too that are making me break out so I’m going to see if there’s something in them and the water that’s causing this! Yes I most definitley will rinse it off now 😀 xxx

    I have now changed to the tea tree water by Lush as a toner after washing my face with simple face wash! My skin is finally calming down!!
