I do love a quick skincare fix. Why spend more time removing my makeup when I can be out there testing out a bunch of new products? Current post excluded. Let's see what these budget 3 in 1 Micellar Waters have to offer...
Whilst there wasn't a huge difference in how any of the cleansers performed in removing my makeup (full face, non-waterproof mascara - FYI) they certainly varied in how the left my face feeling afterwards!

With a whooping 4.7/5 over on the Bee Good website, I was delighted to get the chance to test out their Honey & Wild Water Mint 3-in-1 Cleansing Water. At £10 for 100ml the priciest and the smallest option in this review. But it's also by far the most travel friendly with both a cap and a push-top-open style lid so you won't have to worry about spillages.
The wild mint leaves your skin feeling really refreshed, which makes it a great micellar water for the morning to swipe to wipe anyway panda-eyes or to pack in your back for festival season. Unfortunately, because of the exact same reason, it's not so great for bedtime! Which is when I'm likely to reach for my micellar water the most.

Whilst the removal of my makeup went just fine; the cleanser left an oily residue which made me want to wash my face. As I typically use micellar water when I'm feeling lazy af, it has got to be a no from me. I still may reach for it it on occasion to correct my eyeliner though!

Boots Botanicals own brand Micellar 3 in 1 Cleansing Solution retails for £4.49/250ml and is currently free with the O2 Priorities app. It's the biggest budget cleanser in terms of volume and is very comparable to the Garnier Micellar Water. The cleansing process is quick, easy and leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh. It's also alcohol and soap free, making it great for all skin types!
