Micellar Water vs Micellar Gel

Hey you! Today I’ll be changing things up and I’ll be reviewing this two products and letting you know which one I find that it’s the best. Of course everyone knows (and loves) the micellar water but how would you feel about a micellar gel?


Garnier Micellar Water: This is a well known product that claims to be an all in one, capable of removing makeup, dirt and oils from the skin.


  • Gentle;
  • Effectively removes makeup and cleanses the skin;
  • No need to rinse it off
  • Quick, easy and better than face wipes;
  • Quite inexpensive;
  • Doesn’t irritate my skin;
  • Alcohol and fragrance free.


  • Doesn’t really gets rid of waterproof makeup (specially mascara);

My experience: I quite like this product. I use it as my first step of my night time routine just to take the majority of my makeup off. However, I feel like it leaves a film on my skin and I do not enjoy that feeling. And, although it claims to be an all in one product I always follow it up with my skincare. So, after the micellar water I’ll go in with a cleanser, toner, oil and moisturizer.

Garnier Micellar Gel: Clear, fragrance free, all in one gel that was designed o remove both makeup and impurities from the skin.


  • Gentle;
  • A little goes a long way;
  • Easy to rinse it off;
  • Affordable;
  • Effectively removes makeup (and including waterproof mascara);
  • Doesn’t irritate my skin;
  • Alcohol and fragrance free.


  • Although it says that it is ophthalmologically tested, it stings my eyes tremendously;
  • Should be used on a previously wet face.

My experience: When I saw that they had came out with a micellar gel I was supper excited and grabbed it. However, when I used it, I was not blown away. I does remove makeup but so does the micellar water. And using it as a cleanser, oh well, I have other that I reach for more than this one.

Overall: Although both products are quite affordable, I find that I like the micellar water more than the micellar gel just because it is more easy to use since there’s no need to wet my face or rinse the product off.

Have you tried the micellar gel? Which one do you like more? NA
