After a long day, the last thing you’d want is to spend ages to remove your makeup, right? Also who doesn’t like quick and easy makeup removing. Micellar waters are perfect for it and they are just fuss free. How about a micellar water with oil, maybe Garnier Micellar Oil Infused Cleansing water?

Whoever came up with micellar water have all my appreciation. Even though it is some kind of water, it makes everything easier, don’t you think so? Garnier Micellar Water is one of my favourite makeup removing products and when I ran out of it, I thought I’d give Garnier Micellar Oil Infused Cleansing water a try. It is for Dry/Sensitive skin, since I have oily/combination skin, it was a tricky decision but hey, since I double cleanse, it can’t be that bad.

Garnier Micellar Oil Infused Cleansing Water claims to remove all makeup, even waterproof (I can’t say anything about it as I don’t really use waterproof products), get rid of all the impurities and leave the skin nourished. Good claims but does it really live up to its claims?

In order to combine the water and the oil, you have to shake it well! Give it a good shake and then quickly pour it onto the cotton pad, then you’re ready to clean your makeup. Due to the density difference, water and oil separates quickly, that’s why you have to be quick.

It cleans the makeup as good as the original micellar water, maybe even better. Since oils are good at dissolving the makeup, it gets easier and quicker to remove the makeup. I have sensitive eyes and it doesn’t irritate or sting my eyes, which is great. After cleansing the makeup, your skin will be really soft and nourished. It is more nourishing than the original one. Good thing is after cleansing, there’s no greasy feeling and next morning you won’t have those panda eyes. If you use oil or oil based cleansers, then you will love it.

If you’re in hurry in the morning, you can use it as your morning cleanser too. When I use it that way, I make sure to wait a few minutes before I apply other skincare products so my skin doesn’t get oily. This micellar water has sweet floral scent, it is not overwhelming and it doesn’t linger so even if you are not a fan of scented cleanser, this won’t bother you.

If you love the original micellar water, you should also give this a try.

Have you used Garnier Micellar Oil Infused Cleansing Water before? What’s your favourite cleanser?

    I lovee facial oils at the moment and I always use the Soap and Glory Micellar Water to remove my make-up, when I run out I will definitely have to try this one! x

    • Sometimes I use oils to remove makeup and I love how good they clean the makeup. This oil infused micellar water is good, I’d highly recommend it x

  • Ever since I started using micellar water, I can’t imagine using different make up removal.

  • I have tried all of them, but this is by far my favourite! I have really dry and sensitive eyes, so removing waterproof mascara was a pain, but not anymore. I use this in the morning as well, paired with my moisturizer it did wonders for my skin.

    • I don’t wear waterproof mascaras so I don’t know how effective it is, one time I might give it a try. I love how soft my skin feels after using this one.

  • I haven’t tried a single micellar water so maybe this is just the gateway one that I need! Especially since I have very dry skin in the fall and winter months.

    • It is really good, it cleans the makeup without leaving anything behind. x

  • Do you think this would work on blemishes?

    • I don’t think it works on blemishes. I use it as a first cleanse then use some cleanser to get rid of any impurities.

  • Shwetali

    sounds good.. but this is not available here. Nice review 🙂

  • I’m a big fan of the original Garnier micellar water but lately I’ve been using the oil infused one and, unfortunately, I don’t like it as much as the original one. I don’t like any oil based cleanser on my eyes and I only use it to remove my eye makeup so I’m really forcing myself to use it up. x

    • I am a fan of the original micellar water too, it is so gentle. This one is also good, it leaves the skin so soft 🙂

  • I have seen a few favorable reviews for this oil infused micellar water, but I don’t think I will be using it any time. One, I don’t think it is available here in Canada yet, and two because oil breaks me out :(((
    Angie | Chocolate & Lipstick | Beauty, Fashion & Lifestyle Blog

    • I love oils to remove the makeup, they work so well for me. Micellar water&oil duo is really effective too. If oil breaks out your skin then you should stay away from it 🙁

  • Oh wow! I didn’t know they came out with this. I love their micellar water, but sometimes you need a little bit more. This would work out well for me. Will definitely look for it. Thanks for doing this review.

    • Oils are good for removing the makeup and this oil&micellar water duo does a good job, I like how soft it leaves my skin.

    Oils combat the oil within the make-up which is why it makes it such a good cleanser of make-up!
    Charlotte //

    • Yeah that’s why oil cleanser are one of my favourite!

  • Sounds like a great product!

    • I only use makeup removal wipes when I am too lazy, otherwise I avoid them, as you said they are too rough on skin.

    xx, Carmen –

  • I haven’t seen this one before, I keep hearing how good oil is for oily skin so I really want to give this a go! Not sure whether I would keep my normal one for the mornings though, think it may be a little too much for my skin in the mornings. I would have to wait ages to apply my other skincare! xx

    • I really like this one, oil breaks the makeup so well that it is so easy to remove the makeup 🙂 x

    I cannot end my day without using my original Garnier Micellar Water, hon! I have seen this one around but have kind of hesitated to get it. After reading this lovely review, I must give it a try 😉 Thanks for reviewing it & I am glad it worked so well for you.

  • I love Micellar Water but I always used waterproof makeup on my eyes so I find that I have to use two different types of cleansers to take my makeup off. This sounds like the perfect 2 in 1 for me Ela, thanks for the heads up!

    • I hardly use waterproof products so I don’t know how effective it is, you should give it a try, it might save you so much time and money 🙂 x

  • Ooo I didn’t know they came out with an oil infused one!! Sometimes oil cleansers is a pain and to have an oil based one sounds interesting! Thanks for the review, will pick this up if I ever see it!

    • I actually like oils to remove the makeup, TBS chamomile is one of my favourite. This one doesn’t leave the skin so oily and it is easier to remove the makeup with it.

  • Erin Russell

    I keep hearing this one smells? does it? I keep picking it up in store, I should really just get it and try it, but I am put off because I tried one before and hated it 🙁

    Erin || MakeErinOver

    • If you smell it before you shake (so basically the oil), it has sweet floral scent. Once you shake it well, the scent fades however you can still smell it a little. I don’t really like the scented skincare products but this scent doesn’t really bother me.

  • I’ve read good stuff about the original micellar water before so it was interesting to read about this version.


  • April Rose Pengilly

    I love micellar water, but hadn’t heard about this new combination one! I’ll definitely have to try it now. Great review!

    With love, Sofia Silva ♥

  • I’ve wanted to try this product ever since I first saw it came out! This will be my next micellar water purchase, instead of the usual Garnier micellar water I use (the pink one). It sounds great, and I’m sure it’ll work great even though I have oily skin too!
