Beauty Battle #06 Micellar Waters

Garnier Micellar Water, Bioderma and B. Pure Micellar Water Review
Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water - £4.99 B. Pure Micellar Water - £2.47 and Bioderma Micelle Solution(travel size) - £9.99

When it comes to skincare i'm down for trying anything that makes the process quicker and easier. Micellar waters have been on the rise for quite some time now and I've got three to compare and contrast for you today.

First up is the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water (reviewed in full here). Let's mention the gorgeous packaging and the huge amount of product you get first. For less than a fiver you are getting 400ml of product and trust me you don't need a lot. This is often on offer too meaning you can pick it up for around half the price, especially in Asda or Tesco. This is a brilliant micellar water that really gets rid of your makeup in one easy wipe. I use this on a cotton pad all over my face, leaving my eyes till last. The best thing about this is that it doesn't sting the eye area, it's so gentle and soothing that it feels really nice to apply and it's a great first step in my skin care routine.

Next is the less known B. Pure Micellar Water available at Superdrug, this is currently on offer for half price hence the cheap price. This was the first micellar solution I tried and I have to say I really enjoyed using it at first. Weirdly after a couple of weeks of using this, it started to really sting my eyes to the point were I couldn't use it anymore. I've since given this to my sister and she hasn't found it a problem at all but I know I've read a few reviews which say the same thing. My main reason for using a micellar water is to remove eye make up quickly and easily so if you're like me then this probably isn't for you.

Finally we have the famous Bioderma Micelle Solution. This has been raved about so much since I've been blogging and I completely understand why. It's so simple and effective at taking off makeup, it makes the whole thing quick and fuss free. When i'm wearing minimal makeup I will just use this to cleanse and it really does do the job well. The only down side to this is the £10 price tag and how hard it is to buy. I bought mine from Escentual when they had a third off French Pharamacy brands which made it a little bit cheaper (yeyy)!

All in all I really do love a good micellar water and i'm afraid the more expensive version is pretty special n this case, however I will say that the Garnier version is pretty much identical and a damn site cheaper. So out of all of these I would say save your money and buy the Garnier version but if you're looking for a treat or Bioderma is on offer then definitely pick it up. I'm afraid to say that the B. Pure one didn't do much for me but i'm sure it works for plenty of other people.



  1. Good to know I only have the Garnier one and it's the best, saved me some money rather than buying Bioderma x

    1. Yeah they are pretty much the same so I wouldn't waste your money if your happy with the Garnier one :) xx

  2. I've resisted Bioderma because a) it would be difficult for me to get and b) I've heard mixed reviews about its ability to remove eye makeup/mascara. Thanks for comparing it to the Garnier.

    1. You're very welcome, hope this has helped :) xx
