This post is not sponsored, it is my submission in the Garnier #smartbeauty competition, as part of the #Kidspot #VoicesOf2014 competition, of which I am one of the top 30 Personal and Parenting Bloggers. Yay me! The prompt I’ve chosen is ‘magic’. You know that as usual, all words and enthusiasm are my own.
OK, you’ve got me, despite the badge at the bottom I’m not really a Beauty Blogger. But!! Like most non-glamorous ladies the world over, I do like to look after my skin. I was fortunate to inherit decent skin from a mother that was also dedicated to skin care, so I’ve been cleansing, toning and moisturizing from a young age. As my skin has matured along with me, my needs have changed, and thankfully so have many products on the market. I was lucky enough to have Garnier send me some, including their Garnier Miceller Cleansing Water.
My skin is dryer these days, so what I want from a cleanser is a gentle gentle approach. I want the dirt of the day to lift off by magic. Because my skin is more delicate now, I don’t want to have to scrub away at it, I want to be able to use a gentle wiping motion. I don’t want my cleanser to leave a residue that needs another product to clean it up. I don’t often wear lots of make up, but if I do I don’t want to have to use a different makeup remover as well as my regular cleanser. I might have more disposable income these days, but I don’t really want to spend it on my skin. Pretty tall order, huh?
Let me tell you, Garnier’s Micellar Cleansing Water ticks the boxes on all of these requirements, leaving me with cleaner, happier skin while saving me time and money. Is it magic? Is it technology? Who cares!
Garnier Miceller Cleansing Water is named for Micelles oil molecules, tiny oil molecules that dissolve in water. This means that Garnier Micellar Water feels like a toner, but actually works like the best cleanser ever, picking up impurities, make up and any other residue like some sort of magical cleanser. It works so well you don’t need to rub vigorously, leaving your skin perfectly clean and refreshed. It’s so gentle it won’t dry your skin, leaving you lunging for the moisturizer. It costs around $12 RRP, and one bottle has enough for 200 applications – you do the math, I’m not a mathemagician. I also love that it is not strongly scented, leaving me feel fresh as a daisy.
We talk about getting back to basics all the time, but I am so glad for the magic of technical advances like this!
