Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

It is in the last year or so that I've really been trying to solidify a proper skincare routine and that for me started with nailing down a good cleansing regimen. An important part of that process for me what toning and it had been an element of cleansing that I had forgotten about in the past and recently, I've discovered how effective toning actually is. 
With that in mind, I thought I'd review for you one of the toner's I've been trying out recently; Garnier's Micellar Cleansing Water.

Price? £1.99 for 125ml
Where to Buy? Boots 
This is considered a pretty bang on dupe for the very popular Bioderma Sensibio H20 Micelle Solution and I have to say, I agree. Both of these toners are great for use on sensitive skin and as someone with that skin type, I can definitely say that Garnier's toner caused absolutely no irritation for me. 
Having tried Bioderma's Solution in the past, I'd say that the same does apply to that product too but Garnier's version is nonetheless still a fraction of the price. 
At £1.99 for 125ml, it is half the price than Bioderma and for something you're going to use everyday - perhaps even to remove a full face of makeup, I think it's an amazing deal. 

Talking of removing makeup, whilst I don't use toner solely for this purpose and instead prefer hot cloth cleansers, this toner does a great job of removing any left over makeup and just generally refreshing my skin and removing any access oil or dirt from it. 
I love to use this in the mornings or when I want to clean my face quickly because I find it gentle enough and frankly good enough to use on it's own.

This doesn't leave the face feeling tight like some toners tend to and instead leaves the face feeling fresh and hydrated - I find it effective at softening dry areas too. It makes a great base for a hydrating serum and the two in conjunction make my skin feel beautiful. 
All in all, I think this is great product - it cleanses well and is perfect for all skin types. It's pretty much the same if not better than Bioderma's Micelle Solution in my opinion and at a fraction of the price, it's at least worth a try if you ask me!
Have you tried this product? If so, I'd love to know what you think :)
