I found a bottle of Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water at Boots in London and decided to grab a small bottle of it to compare against the Bioderma. I had doubts about the Garnier due to my experience with the Simple Micellar Water, but decided to give it a shot since it was a new product in the UK. Here's what I found:
- These two micellar waters are very comparable!
- Both removed my makeup, though the Bioderma probably took off more at once than the Garnier. I had to go back with another cotton pad with both products, but the Garnier left more makeup on the cotton pad the second time.
- The ONLY difference is that the Bioderma was gentler on my skin. I felt a slight (and I mean very slight) stinging sensation with the Garnier.
As you can see from the photo, both products worked well. I definitely still prefer the Bioderma as it was gentler on my skin, but I would not hesitate to pick up another bottle of the Garnier water the next time I'm in the UK again!
