Hello lovelies hopes your all well, micellar water has honestly taken over the beauty community, while I am yet to still try bioderma I thought of trying out the more affordable ones first to see if I like them. I have the two most talked about budget micellar waters so I thought it would be good to compare the two as one actually gives twice as much product for the same price of £4.99.
I first saw the L’oreal Skin Perfection Micellar Water on many blogs praising it so obviously I had to go out and buy it. I have been using this for the longest out of the two and its nearly finished and I really loved it, it removed my make up and didn't make my skin feel greasy. This contains (200ml) of product costing £4.99 (Its currently on offer at Superdrug for £3.32)
The good points..
✔ Does what it says and removes make up, from foundation to that pesky gel liner, although with eye make up it does take a bit longer to take off maybe a extra 2 minutes. It didn't cause me any breakouts, or sting my eye badly (I do experience a tiny bit of stinging but that is only when the pad is really soaked)
The bad points however are..
✘ The packaging is really awkward to use as its a rectangle lid and the nozzle is quite large. Putting the water on to the pad gets real messy because a lot comes out and it leads to a lot of product wastage.
I actually first saw the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water on celeb big brother, you know when they zoom in on different things. I had no idea that Ganier do one and when I went to Boots I saw it and to my surprise it had twice as much product as the L'Oreal one (400ml) and it was the same price!
The good points..
✔ Same as the L'Oreal one it does the job, takes make up off easily with out irritating the skin or stringing the eyes.
✔ Love, love love the packaging to this, it is very similar to the famous bioderma and has a cute pink lid along with small nozzle so the water doesn't all come out in one gush, so you can control how much you want out which is great.
✘ The only bad thing I can say in comparison to the L'Oreal is that it takes slightly longer to feel like all your make up is off if that makes any sense.
❤ So the winner? For me personally its the Garnier as it gives twice as much product as the L'Oreal one so i don't see the point paying the same amount for the L'Oreal when it does the same job when I can get an extra 200ml with the Garnier, along with the fact that the L'Oreal ones also causes a lot of product wastage where else with the Garnier the packaging is perfect and would last me longer.
However I do believe that the L'Oreal one takes make up off slightly better than the Ganier but that is just my personal experience and is not that big of a deal to me as all i have to do is spend a few minutes more cleansing my face.
Have you tried any of these micellar waters and what are your thoughts?
