4 WAYS TO USE YOUR GARNIER MICELLAR WATER

Garnier Micellar Water is STILL one of my absolute favourite products at the moment! Yes, I KNOW, it hit our market ages ago, but when you find a diamond, a girls’ gotta keep it!

We all know that Pure Active Micellar Water is fabulous for having a happy face with its make-up removing and purifying abilities, but why not take these hidden talents of a rather generous 400ml bottle and try them elsewhere, besides ones face.

These are my top 4 other uses for this bottle of bliss:

  • Cleaning/Polishing jewellery

YES! It’s that simple. If you’re going to be wearing jewels out and about, they might as well SPARKLE! Try adding a splash of Micellar Water to a few drops of warm water in an egg holder and let those pearlers soak up some goodness before drying them off. If that doesn’t tickle your pickle, try a few drops on a cotton pad or earbud to really get into those nooks ‘n crannies.

  • Remove make-up on carpets, furniture and clothing

If this magical water can remove make up off your face, it can do the trick on just about any other surface too. Broken blusher or bronzer on your chair? Spilled foundation on your desk? Smudged eye liner on the counter? NO PROBLEM! Let Garnier put Mr Muscle to shame and put those bloopers to rest.

  • Clean your hands

Keep a smaller sized Micellar Water bottle in your bag if you’re on the go and unable to reach water to clean your hands. Simply dash a few drops onto your hands, rub them together and wipe away with a tissue of sorts. And Vwahlah! You’ll have hands a fresh as a cucumber!

  •  Clean your make-up brushes

Micellar water is fantastic for cleaning your make-up brushes and it’s so simple too! Pour some magic water into a cup of sorts. Dip and swirl your brushes into the cup to cover them with the liquid until most of the make-up has been removed. You might need to do 2 rounds of this by refilling the cup, depending on how much product is hiding on your brushes.  Gently pat them on a dark coloured towel for any excess make-up and you’ll be good to go!

Who would’ve thought that ONE face product would have so many other different uses? Not me! That’s for sure. Oh how I just love my Micellar Water!

Do you guys have any other different uses for this wonderful product?

Until next time,

HOW TO RESUSCITATE YOUR FACE

Oh would you look at that…Summer holidays have come and gone, believe it or not!! After taking a break over the exam and vacation season, I am more than excited to be back at working on my blog and all things fabulous! With that being said, WELCOME BACK to reading your first Booty and Beauty Blog post of 2016!!

I’m not entirely sure about all of you Beautiful Betty’s, but after a month of frolicking about in the sunshine, eating all the wrong, but OH SO DELICIOUS foods (as we tend to do in the holidays) and boogying up a complete and utter storm, ones face tends to lag in looking radiantly gorgeous and begins to sport the feeling of an almost shrivelled prune. NOT so fabulous, if you ask me.

Luckily, I have managed to resuscitate such facial behaviour with a few easy to use and affordable beauty finds. Affordable? Why yes Young Lass, you’ve read correctly!

And here we have Wendy Wipes, Spongebob and Miss Micellar in this family portrait!!

First up is one of my favourites and I am rather sad to have jumped on the band wagon a little late with this one, but HEY, at least I didn’t miss the ride! I am in absolute awe of this product from Garnier. It was only released in South Africa a few months ago and goes by the name of  Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. Sounds angelic, doesn’t it?

Miss Micellar looking all minty and fresh!!

This Micellar Water can be used to remove make-up, cleanse and purify your skin without ANY rinsing and can even be used on the entire face, eyes and lips. What a bonus! It is used in the same way as you would do with toner by dashing a splash on a piece of cotton wool and wiping over all facial areas. Basically, it’s a mini face bath. What’s even better about this bottle of magic is that it’s super gentle on the skin and leaves you feeling refreshed and jolly.  Refreshed AND jolly? Quite a talented product if you ask me!!

Pure Active Micellar Water is suitable for sensitive to combination skin. This minty green coloured bottle is superbly big in size (400ml) and has a guarantee of 200 uses! Nothing quite like being large and in charge! A bottle of such bliss can be found at Dischem for R79.95.

Miss Micellar is worth R79.95 at your local Dischem if you’d fancy adopting her!!

Another favourite of mine happens to be 3 in 1 make-up removal cleaning wipes from Pure. These are absolutely fabulous and are perfect for cleansing and refreshing ones face during the super hot Summer days, and to of course remove make-up.  These wipes are enriched with Aloe Vera and have a scent of this kind too. Expect your skin to be left feeling radiantly refreshed and smooth.  A pack of 25 wipes retails for R19.95 at your local Checkers.

Pure 3 in 1 make-up removal facial wipes for R19.95 at Checkers.

If you are needing a helping hand in the cleansing department, try out my beauty find of Facial Cleansing Sponges from Dischem for R14.95. These are super easy to use to remove make –up and to cleanse. Simply rinse in clear hot water when you are finished using these helpful little gems. Nothing like letting your sponges have a hot bath too, right?

So basically, Spongebob has been dissected for an entire R14.95 at Dischem!

Next on the list is none other than a few beautifully hydrating face masks from Mantagne Jeunesse. I have yet to try 2 out of the 3 that I have bought and will be posting my review on these once they have all been put to test. I can’t wait to share my thoughts on these with you. Each of these masks can be bought for R29.95 at Clicks. Totally winning at life right now, aren’t we?

Happy, happy face bathing, all you Pretty Petals!!
