Garnier SkinActive Micellar Gentle Peeling Water & Micellar Reusable Make-Up Remover Eco Pads Review

Hey everyone! 

Welcome to a brand new blog post. I recently got sent some goodies from the wonderful PR team from Garner UK and I thought that today I would talk to you all about two of the products that I was sent.

So if you are following me on my social media platforms such as TikTok and Instagram then you may have noticed that I have been trying to get back into using makeup recently. (Would you want some makeup reviews? Let me know down below). I also travel from time to time and for both of these reasons I have been looking for a decent micellar water that I can use to remove makeup and that I can use on the go when it comes to travelling throughout the UK so when I received my parcel from Garner and noticed that they had included the stunning Gentle Peeling Water I was amazed as it was just what I was looking for. 

This Micellar Gentle Peeling Water contains 1% PHA and Glycolic Acid which is an AHA. These active skincare ingredients help to smooth uneven skin texture, boost radiance, minimise enlarged pores, removes makeup and gently exfoliates the skin due to AHA and PHA’s being a chemical exfoliant for the skin. 

I have been using this Micellar Water for a month now and I absolutely love it. I used to not be the biggest fan of Micellar Water as it sometimes felt a bit thick on my skin and took a while to dry on my skin but this Gentle Peeling Water is lightweight and sinks into my skin instantly. I have skin texture and can breakout easily due to being lactose intolerant and using this Peeling Water has definitely helped it alongside my usual skin routine. 

I love using this micellar water to remove makeup when I’ve had a long day. All I have to do is wipe this onto my skin and it removes it instantly. I don’t use many full coverage products though at the moment so I may have to use some and see how well this product removes them too. I have also put some into a mini bottle to take with me on the go and trust me it has been a godsend for me whilst I’ve been on the go or at a hotel. Sometimes when I do spend time at a hotel I sometimes forget some beauty products due to rushing when packing in the morning so if I’ve forgotten a cleanser I have used this product and it has worked beautifully as a replacement for my normal cleanser in my routine. 

The scent of this Micellar Water is light and citrus to me. It reminds me of Oranges and Mangoes which I know sounds weird but it really does. The scent isn’t too strong compared to some beauty products that I have used in the past which I love especially if I’m using this product late at night.

To accompany the Micellar Water, Garner kindly sent me their Eco Pads to try out. Now, I am picky when it comes to what I use to wash or wipe my face with because of my sensory issues. I know a lot of the time with Toners and Micellar Waters, Cotton Pads are recommended but honestly I have forever hated the feeling of them. When I saw these Eco Pads, I was ecstatic as it meant I could use something on my face on the go that honestly didn’t make me want to peel my own skin off. I also love that they are reusable and washable which makes them great for the environment. You can whack them in with the rest of your washing or just wash in the sink. I love this as it means I can just wash them and leave them overnight to dry in the hotel if I’m using them there or just in my bathroom. These Eco Pads feel amazingly soft on the skin which I adore. You also get three pairs of Eco Pads in one packet which means that you can use a pair whilst one is being washed. I would definitely pick up a couple of packets to give as gifts alongside the Micellar Water.
Would I buy again? Definitely. This product has definitely gotten me back into using both makeup and Micellar Water and I love it. The scent of the Micellar Water is refreshing and the product contains active ingredients to help your skin out. The Eco Pads are soft and wipe away all the grime from your face amazingly. What’s not to love? 

Have you tried these products? Would you try them? Let me know down below.

Thanks to Garner PR for sending these products.
