When it comes to my nightly skincare routine, every night is a different routine depending on what I feel my skin needs. One crucial step that doesn’t change is cleansing; moving all the days makeup and unseen dirt sitting atop of the skin.
To start, I like to wipe off any eye and lip makeup with micellar water or makeup remover targeted for eyes and lips before starting the first cleanse (usually a cleansing balm or oil. To clarify, it’s not that I don’t trust cleansing balms or oils – I’m always amazed at how they remove every single bit of makeup, it is more of a personal preference and habit).
On that note, Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water and Eco Pads are a true cleansing duo, they both help gently remove makeup and leave skin cleansed.

I’ve switched from using single-use cotton rounds to an eco-friendly, reusable version over a year ago and never looked back. These Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Eco Pads are not only soft to touch but feel super gentle on the skin. And when I say soft, I mean they are REALLY SOFT! When using these reusable makeup remover pads with the Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water with Vitamin C, I like to saturate the eco pad with the micellar water and press it against my eye area and let it sit for a few seconds before gently swiping off the eye makeup and repeating the process for the other eye.
The Micellar Cleansing Water does a wonderful job at removing all traces of my eye makeup and lipstick, and I’m sure it can do a great job at removing foundation as well. I love that it doesn’t leave the skin feeling sticky or tight, instead leaves it fully cleansed and brighten before moving on to the rest of my skincare routine.
