To the victor, goes the spoils. We wrote about how great the Garnier Micellar Water was, and you seemed to agree. It pulled out a victory, but it wasn’t a runway. Garnier Micellar Water finished only one vote ahead of the Pond’s.

It’s got what makeup craves: it’s got MICELLES! - ʕ•ᴥ•ʔ : Riot GRRR is RUNNING WILD

Garnier Micellar Water — the one that removes waterproof makeup (blue cap). My face has been so clear since I started using it. On non-shower days, I use it in the morning to clean off sleep dirt. It’s the best skin care item I own. - JenisaurusRex

I bought some Garnier micellar water for camping this summer and ignored it in daily life for a while. I started using it a few weeks ago as the first step in a double cleansing routine and in the morning or post-work out and my skin looks and feels amazing. I’m ashamed I let it sit around unused! - Milton Greene’s Kidney

The advantage of going the Pond’s route, though, is the fact that you won’t need to waste any cotton balls or pads. It’s purely a face wash that really works to get rid of all the lingering makeup. It’s literally been around for over 100 years, so there’s no denying it works.

Definitely this!! It’s moisturizing and takes everything off! My grandmother has used this along with old school Olay since the beginning of time. She is now 96 years young and looks about 70ish. Absolutely gorgeous skin! - Kymmy

I came on here to say exactly this. After years of trying different strategies I went back to Ponds (I used to do theatre. And we used Abeline to get that mess off). My skin immediately felt fresher and cleaner. Love the stuff. - Sweet Little Buttercup
