I can’t remember when I last did a skincare routine post. There
are probably some things that stayed the same as I’ve got some old favourites
that I’ve been using for years, but I
have recently found some new products my skin loves. It’s taken me ages to get
a regular routine, I’m nearly thirty and it’s only been the past couple of
years I’ve had a proper daily routine.
My skin can definitely be difficult at times. It’s acne prone, combination and sensitive but definitely goes on the dry side over oily when it comes to the combination part. I do like trying new products but I tend to find that it takes a while for my skin to get used to them so I’m trying to stick to a few favourites, though one of the moisturisers in the Holland and Barrett advent calendar has made such a difference it’s in my go to list now.
I’m pretty late with trying micellar water, I didn’t see what the big deal was until my parents bought me a small bottle of the Garnier one for sensitive skin as it was on offer. I really liked it but I saw a large Soap and Glory one on offer in Boots when my original was running low so I thought I’d try that one as I normally get on with their products. This post is a combination of a review of each of them as well as comparing them on the main points I would have for buying micellar water products from any company.
I haven’t actually seen much about the Soap and Glory Total Drama Clean 5-in-1 ‘Magnetizing’ Micellar Make Up Remover, though I have seen a lot about the Garnier Micellar Cleansing water in the various different kinds. I haven’t tried the other Garnier versions so this post is on the one with the pink lid, I don’t know the proper name for it but it says ‘even for sensitive skin’ so I’m going to call it the sensitive one.
