Review // Garnier Micellar Extra-Gentle Cleansing Wipes

I know. I know. Make-up removing wipes are terrible, terrible things. They are really bad for your skin, you should use a cream based make-up remover and cotton pads which, when used together, is like a little treat for the skin but come on, aren't make-up removing wipes just so god damn easy??

The opinion above isn't mine, by the way. I saw someone who I follow on twitter say this a while ago but it stuck with me. I love make-up removing wipes and I don't care who knows it! They are quick, easy, require very little effort at all and don't require the effort of having to stand in front of the bathroom mirror with a big wad of cotton pads and a shed load of patience. 

I am a massive fan of the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. It cleanses the skin whilst keeping it hydrated and removing every scrap of make-up to have ever touched the skin. It has very quickly become a little staple in my skincare routine so imagine my surprise and delight when I recently came across the Garnier Micellar Extra-Gentle Cleansing Wipes. *insert heart eye emoji here*

What Garnier say about their Micellar Extra-Gentle Cleansing Wipes:
"Garnier Skin Naturals Micellar Extra-Gentle Cleansing Wipes contain thin silk fibres in a thick, soft wipe. Soaked with Micellar water, they are specially formulated for make-up removal on sensitive skin. Like a magnet, the cleansing agents capture impurities and lift away dirt from the skin. No need to rub to efficiently to remove make-up. The result: In a single step, your make-up is removed and your skin feels refreshed and soothed."

I will start off by saying that I have just finished off using the driest packet of make-up removing wipes I have ever come across from Asda. I know the first wipe is probably always the driest but nope, the second, third, fourth wipe was as dry as a bone. I literally had to scrub at my face to get rid of my make-up, it was awful. They did improve however, when I read in a magazine that if you leave your make-up packet upside down, the moisture from the last few wipes sinks through all of them making them usable. I tried it and I was so surprised at how well it works! If you ever have a packet of dry wipes then simply turn the packet upside down and they won't be so dry anymore ~ top tip ~

Luckily you won't even need to bother with that hassle when you find out about the Garnier Micellar Extra-Gentle Cleansing Wipes. The first wipe was so satisfyingly wet (weird) that I was shocked. I am so used to dry make-up removing wipes that they have become the norm now but as these cleansing wipes are soaked with the Garnier Micellar Water, they have a lot of moisture in them which makes removing make-up the absolute dream. My make-up practically glided off my face with the help of these cleansing wipes, leaving my face incredibly soft and gentle whilst removing every scrap of make-up, including my waterproof mascara. Unlike most other make-up removing wipes, they didn't push my make-up round my face or leave greasy remains, everything was removed really quickly and gently and I didn't feel the need to immediately wash my face like I usually am when using other wipes.

I absolutely love these wipes! They remove my make-up effortlessly, they aren't dry at all and they leave my skin feeling wonderfully cleansed. And the best bit? They are currently 75p for a pack of 25 at the moment in Asda!
