As a confessed fan of Micellar waters, when Garnier brought out a new one, I was always going to buy it! For me it’s the perfect step before a cleanse. Before I ramble on about these Garnier Micellar Waters, I want to clarify one thing.
The best Micellar water I’ve ever used is Bioderma, for me it’s by far the best. (Eh why am I in possession of THREE bottles of Garnier?… Because I go through this stuff like a movie star… two bottles a month) The Garnier is four euro in Penneys, at that price I always have one.
This is my Numbero Uno, it does leave your skin wet for about 90 seconds after using but when you’re following up with a cleanser, this is not a problem. I love it and will always repurchase.
Did I notice a massive difference with this … I’m calling it the green one… I’m technical like that… No! It also leaves my skin wet, and dry with a little tightness. Neither bottle is perfumed and yet I have a stronger scent with this one.
Okay… Now for the new (to me anyway) Micellar water, I realise it’s out a while! So I use it like the others, I squeeze it onto a cotton round. I think it drys off the pad very quickly. It leaves my skin oily… I’m not a fan of it for my face. I realise if I was lashing on Estée Lauder Double Wear or something it might be better. I imagine the oily nature of it would break down heavy make-up with ease. (Realistically there’s not a lot of makeup on my face at the end of the day) However, I wear waterproof mascara and as an eye makeup remover it’s awesome. Still very oily but it dissolves my mascara. So there you have it, the Garnier Micellar waters are a handy little product. What are your thoughts?

So the country has gone crazy for Ireland in the Euros! How fantastic is it that the football supporters in France are currently boosting Ireland’s profile abroad, especially when others are bringing nothing but shame. We had a Pizza party after the match and Tom was very excited – the cheer with the goal reminded me of Italia ’90! I’m currently trying to talk Keith into allowing me put some bunting up! Ah the holidays are good! We will celebrate our win tomorrow with a big family barbecue, I will snap and Instagram here!
I love my Cinema Lightbox, for cute messages like this.
We had a late breakfast mid week. Having the holidays off work with Tom is amazing.
We found ourselves in Nellys coffee shop on the South Circular road as I was early for an appointment. The coffee was Imbibe and delicious!
I love Cherry Coke, found this in Boots, it’s the original and not ‘with cherry’.
This goodies have been on trial the days I’m wearing a little war paint. I’m loving the Posie tint, still figuring out Boi-ing! Have a fantastic weekend! Here’s hoping it a victory for our Boys in Green tomorrow!
HAHA I know right… Every time!
But I genuinely went in to see if the mouthwash was on special. You know the big litre bottle… (Feels like a workout when you lift it) It’s unclear what happened next but I went on a mad one. The haul was awesome and I left feeling spoiled, with the goodies I’d feel like a new woman, we talking hair dye, wax strips, nail varnish, tan oh and what I’m about to talk about now. ALL the mini benefits… Geddit!
These goodies are four for twenty euro. You get this clear makeup pouch… I’m thinking airport security… I’m a massive fan of the Benefit Benetint! But I decided to try the Posie tint.
The bottle is so cute and I will have this for months.
I also choose a High Beam, I’m a big fan of High Beam. I know, the market is flooded with amazing highlighters, the Mary-Lou Manizer, Becca Backlight and Youngblood Champagne Life… are all faves of mine. But I love this for an everyday pop of light to the face.
I picked two of these… I have never used it so have no idea why I bought two… I’m excited to try it! I love the idea of picking four minis. They have the deal online here, What’s your favourite Benefit product?
