Garnier Micellar Water

There is a lot of hype over this product over the past 6 months or so, and I quickly got hooked onto this 'Micellar trend'. And I'm just not sure how much I love it anymore. 

Yes, it's quick. Yes, it's easy and simple. Yes, it gets your make-up off. BUT only to a certain extent. I had to buy the oil-infused water after realising that the original green topped micellar water will not remove that stubborn mascara, and doesn't remove black eyeliner particularly well either. Okay my skin does feel fairly cleansed after using, but I still don't feel like I am particularly squeaky clean. 

The oil-infused water has a really nice fresh smell, but it really really stings my eyes, so where I have to use this one to remove my eye make-up properly it hurts too. Not great. As you can see from the photos above, you shake the bottle to activate the oil. I really really want to love this product due to the ease of use but I just... don't. I have to say it's not a bad product. And I have continued to use it, and the green topped bottle is my 2nd bottle. I also have a mini which I take for weekend breaks, so I don't have to take my entire Liz Earle skin routine products.

But it's just not something I reach for as much as I used to. And as much as it does have some pro's, I feel the con's outweigh that. 

What do you guys think of the Micellar trend?
