Simple Micellar Cleansing Water thoroughly cleanses and instantly hydrates skin and unclogs pores with a formula that’s gentle enough for sensitive skin. Made with triple purified water and skin-loving ingredients, this cleanser uses tiny molecular balls known as micelles to entrap and dissolve dirt, oil, makeup, and impurities--all without the need for harsh, irritating chemicals. It also instantly boosts skin hydration by 90%, leaving your skin feeling soft, fresh, and revitalized.

Free of artificial perfumes, dyes, and harsh chemicals, this vitamin-rich cleanser is a versatile addition to your beauty regimen. Use it to wake up your skin in the morning or to remove makeup in the evening.

Usage: Apply a generous amount to a cotton pad. Wipe the cotton pad all around the face, no need to rub the skin. Gently wipe around closed eyes and avoid getting into your eyes. No need to rinse after!

I use this mostly after I’ve used a make up wipe & washed my face just to take off any make up residue. It really does remove gunk off your face that you didn’t even notice was there. There’s always some make up left, mostly foundation or concealer, and this always cleans it right up. It’s not great for removing eye make-up, but I basically use this as kind of a toner right before I moisturize and go to bed just to make sure my face is completely clean.

Before this I was using Garnier’s miceller water but I always hated how tight it made my face feel (in not a good way). I switched to this and I am so glad! I have nothing bad to say about this product. Although it’s miceller water it somewhat leaves my skin feeling moisturized and smooth. It’s amazing.
I use this as the first step in my cleansing routine, followed by actual face washing. This is effective at removing a good deal of makeup. I also love to stuff this in my gym bag to use as soon as I’m done working out to remove sweat and any bacteria that I may have encountered.

This is my first micellar water I’ve tried, and I’m not sure if I don’t like micellar waters or what. I first tried this out as a makeup remover and I was highly disappointed! So I asked on Influenster what others use this product for and I got some pretty good feedback! I now use this as a pre/post-cleanse after my makeup has been removed to make sure all makeup and dirt is removed. I also use it sometimes when I wake up and feel like a cleanser isn’t that necessary since I deep cleansed my face before bed and I only slept. I do like that it doesn’t leave any kind of film or unpleasant residue so no need to wash it off with water and it doesn’t burn or tingle or anything like that! I do not recommend this product for makeup removal, but if you are just looking for another way to gently cleanse the skin I would say this is pretty good.

It’s gentle on the skin and great for using as a sort of toner for the skin. However, it definitely did not meet my expectations for makeup removal. It doesn’t work if you’re using this solely to remove makeup. It may help to remove little bits of leftover makeup after using an actual makeup remover or wipe first. For me, it just seemed to harden my eyeliner and make it stick to my skin more and it just made it harder to remove afterwards. I recommend if you plan to use this for your skin but definitely won’t recommend if you’re looking for makeup removal.

I received this bottle as a sample a few weeks back and I was amazed with how easily this removed my makeup. Not only this but it also didn't irritate my skin like most cleansers do. This product is great for people with sensitive and acne prone skin as it does not contain any alcohol or fragrance. Also it is really inexpensive and can be purchased in target for 2 dollars. The only setback to this product is that since it is so gentle on the skin it is very hard to remove any type of mascara or eyebrow gel off completely. Otherwise, this product is great and I will continue to use it. Simple® Micellar Water Cleanser

I switched over to using Simple Micellar Cleansing Water from GARNIER® SkinActive™ Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Waterproof.

Needless to say, it was the best decision my skin has seen in a long time. This micellar water wiped away every bit of waterproof makeup I had on with NO RUBBING, and it doesn’t leave an oily residue like the Garnier product.

I’m a happy camper 😇

So I actually don't use this to clean off my makeup. I use this to remove the daily oils from my skin that accumulate. Some parts that I enjoy are a lack of smell, lightweight to use, simple packaging, and easy to use. You just put it on your face and use a cotton round to wipe it off. This just gives me that refreshed feel without removing all my oils. I will be repurchasing for sure because let's face it, it has been a game changer for me.

I use this product primarily as a makeup remover and while it gets the job done it is not really a cleanser. I think it's good for the price but do not expect your face to actually get clean. While it does great with foundations and contours/highlights I would recommend using something with a little more oil for eye makeup. It's like a pretty average product and works as the first step in my night routine but does not work as a stand alone

Yet another simple product that disappointed me. I tried both their micellar wipes as well as this formula separately with a cotton pad just to see if it was the formula I wasn't crazy about or just the wipes themselves. Well it appears that neither really cut it for me.

Garnier's micellar water is just so much better. The formula overall is more effective and pleasant to use. I am going to stick with the Garnier from now on.

I use this every night to remove my make up (or in the morning to remove any make up that may have been left around on my eyes). It takes a few cotton pads to remove all my makeup but this is a key step in my routine. It really helps dissolve all your makeup before cleansing again. Unfortunately, because it doesn’t remove everything from my daily makeup, I knocked off a star. Still love this product though !

I have combination skin (my t-zone gets pretty oily). Do you think this would make me oilier?
