It’s just trueeee. It’s over!!!! I am sure that with the arrival of Maybelline and L’Oréal’s micellar waters that you were already waiting for this one last baby to arrive this year. And yes it’s finally here.
May I just say how cute the whole venue looked? It was so nicely decorated. I don’t know how this resto looks like on a normal day, but it looked so gorgeous.
And today I am using Garnier’s Pure Active micellar water. I have a pretty cotton pad which is already saturated with the product.
In one swipe (with some pressure applied), everything comes off cleanly and gets onto this cotton pad.
As you can see, most of the makeup is cleanly out of the way and on the cotton pad. When it comes to the contour cream, foundation, and lip cream, you can see that it all gets off cleanly. When it comes to the eyeliner, not exactly clean, though not too bad already for just one swipe. I have yet to do this on actual eyeliner on the eyes because you can only judge the ability of a micellar water to get rid of makeup once it faces the actual grooves on somone’s face.
So this is a giant poster that they have. It explains how micelles work. So soap comes with micelles, these spherical formations of molecules with hydrophilic heads and hydrophobic tails. The hydrophilic heads, in water, are able to absorb all sorts of dirt and stuff as they are activated. The tails trap the dirt inside the spheres, because if the tails were also hydrophilic (water loving), it would just spew out the dirt in solution.
Sooo for the demo, the lovely host also had the same Maybelline makeup products I used applied on her forearm. They applied it three times because they wanted to show how Garnier fared vs. competitors.
Garnier, as they claim, is potent enough to get rid of makeup in just one swipe with some applied pressure. They say that their goal is to make it effective enough that applying some pressure is enough and that the user need not rub and tug the skin anymore to get the job done.
Just to end this post here’s a scan of their other product ranges alongside their Micellar Waters:
