What's the most important beauty step of the day?
Removing everything you got piled up on your face before you hit the bed. Now, I can't lie - I did mess up a few times and crashed with a full face on after some really hardcore festivals or concerts. Back in the day my mates and I would sleep outside for days to make sure we were front row at ever gig Green Day or Avenged Sevenfold played. (err we actually still do this whenever they're about here in UK )
If I can't be bothered with a complete step-by-step routine though, I do make sure that at least I remove the bulk of makeup from my face. Micellar water has been quite popular these past couple of years and the Garnier option has been on top of everyone's list, quite close to products such as Bioderma - which I just can't seem to get ahold of. *inserts crying face emoji*
When Nivea recently released their version I just HAD to try it and compare the two.
Quantity: 400 ml
The Product: From waterproof mascara and liner, to the heaviest full on power foundation, this little beast beats them all. Even though I have sensitive skin, it never irritated me. The oil-based formula makes sure to really get in there and melt away any makeup you may have sitting around. The skin feels quite hydrated afterwards, not greasy though which is a massive plus. You get so many uses out of it. I share it with my mother and it lasts on our shelves at least a month and a half (and may I add, I don't use it sparingly, I definitely go heavy-handed on it).
Quantity: 200 ml
The Product: I personally use the formula for sensitive skin. I don't find this makeup remover to really get rid of ALL the stuff on my face. It's quite light which means I need to use more product in order to get the job done. I especially found it hard to get rid of waterproof mascara since I had to properly rub my eyes instead of just sweeping the product off. You also get half the amount for almost the same price which is a little off-putting since in about two weeks or less I would have to re-purchase it.
I personally think that for the price AND the quality Garnier just goes a long way ahead than the Nivea micellar cleansing water. You get more uses, it's often on offer and it removes makeup way quicker and more effectively. I do however know that the Nivea version is very loved by many people so I'd be interested in knowing what YOU think about these two products and which one is your personal top choice.
