New Skincare Offerings From Garnier

I will admit it. I am a skincare snob. I do not use/wont use drugstore skincare. It is not because I think that there is anything wrong with it, and not because I think department store products are automatically better. Its because 95% of ALL skincare does not work for me. I get break outs, cystic acne and chemical burns from even the stuff made for sensitive skin. So for me to shell out for ANY skincare of ANY kind, it is not without trying it first or if need be an ironclad ability to return said product. That usually leaves me at Sephora, The Bay and Holt Renfrew.

But..............  hmmmmmmm.........

Micellar water is becoming all the rage lately. Basically Micellar water is just simply a surfucntant (remember me discussing this in relation to haricare?) suspended in water. In this case its basically just water and oil mixed together. The surfucntant (the main ingredient in soap, shampoo and other cleansers - the thing that usually makes the bubbles) is what causes the oil and the water to mix and not separate like oil and water otherwise do. So basically, its water with oil suspended in it using surfunctants. But don't worry. The surfunctants are very mild and merely used to bind the water and oil. So they are in small quantities.

Considering that its simply a cleaning water, I am very interested in trying these. I find little chances of it doing harm to my skin, and if it works, its a great budget option. If not, well, you will likely here me bitch about it here!

Have you seen either of these products yet? If so have you tried one? Or do you WANT to try one? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. Lol my skincare routine involves soap and water! I'm quite lucky and never need to use anything like that. And if I get dry skin I tend to use vaseline - which works!

    If I ever wear makeup - I always use baby oil to remove it!
