Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water - Review

Micellar Cleansing Water has become a staple in my skin care routine and I'm so excited that Garnier now has their own. I have been hooked on Bioderma since the first time I tried it, but it can get expensive to keep buying it once I run out. Then I found the one from Simple which was great and something pretty easy to find in retail stores. This Garnier Micellar Water has been the best of them all and I have more info about why below.
