I rushed to my nearest pharmacy in Ireland on the last day of our holiday to try to track these down.
Such was the chat about them online that I knew I couldn’t leave without bringing them back to Dubai to have a go. So what are they exactly?
Well, Garnier have decided to give Bioderma a run for their money when it comes to their fast-working, cleansing water that’s both effective and gentle on the skin. They’ve released two versions; Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water for the face and eyes and Garnier Express 2 in 1 Eye Makeup Remover.
Having used them both now for almost two weeks I can safely say that I am totally hooked. The Micellar water is equally as effective (and gentle) as Bioderma and although it does the job of removing eye makeup also, the 2 in 1 Express Eye Makeup Remover is rather excellent at breaking down a lot of eye makeup very quickly (including false eyelashes) and it’s super gentle too.
The best bit of course, is the price. The Micellar Water cost me 3.85 euro and the Eye Makeup remover 4.90 euro! Talk about bargaineous. I also heard rumours when I was at home that they were on 3 for 2 in Boots and half price in Penneys!
Someone mentioned on Instagram recently that they were available in Dubai but I have a) yet to find them and I am b) doubtful that the cheap price translated across the water.
If you’re using them already then well done you, and if not – go and get your hands on them immediately! 🙂
