Micellar cleansers work just like magic. If you haven’t used one (Firstly, girl, where have you been hiding?) they’re like cleansing your face with water! Secondly, they’re gentle on the skin, easy to use and don’t leave an oily residue on your face like other cleansers can.
I’ve long been a fan of Bioderma’s H20 Sensibio, even hauling a few bottles home with me on overseas trips. It’s always been a bit hard on the wallet to buy here, but worth every single penny. If you wear make up everyday, over time, it can be quite harsh on the skin, taking your makeup off everyday. Sensibio has been a godsend—it’s one of those products that I know works a treat.
Well, that was until Garnier’s Micellar All In One Cleansing Water came along. At considerably less coin, it packs a serious punch. And it doesn’t make buying a cleansing water feel like such a splurge anymore. So, that said, I thought I’d do my duty, and try them both out to see which one is worth your hard-earned Possum! MC
[the food]Packaging and Fragrance[/the food]
Both cleansers come in very similar packaging, with very little difference between the two. The Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water is made in Poland, where as the Bioderma Sensibio is made in France. To the eye, they both look exactly the same and again, they both have a barely detectable fragrance. It’s a tie!
[the food] Price [/the food]
With Garnier’s Micellar Cleansing Water a quarter of the price ($11.99 for 400ml) compared to Bioderma’s Sensibio H20 ($39.95 for 500ml), Garnier is a clear winner in the price stakes. Garnier wins!
[the food] The Promise [/the food]
So, do you get a better cleanser if you pay more? I’m sad to say, I couldn’t detect a difference between the two. I took off one half of my makeup with Garnier and the other with Bioderma and I really couldn’t tell the difference. It’s a tie!
[the food] So, which one will I be repurchasing? [/the food]
Considering I’m on a budget at the moment, I’m definitely leaning towards Garnier’s Micellar Cleansing Water. It does the job, is kinder to my bank balance and easier to find.
