My hand is well and truly flung up for the *who can't, and probably never will be able to, afford the Bioderma Crealine 'Micellaire' Water?*. If you can't either, Garnier's got yo' back.
I don't actually know how good of a dupe this product is, since I've never had the loose change (or you know; hefty hedge fund) required to step foot into a french pharmacy, or buy the thing with $$$ extra taxes and whatnot here in the isolated/lonely/semi-forgotten land that appears to be Australia, at least where beauty and skincare brands are concerned.
So I eyed this bottle and its 50 sisters/clones on the shelf shelf suspiciously, dubiously pondering "as if you phony." But then I realized how very not rich as I was (am) and decided what the heck, if this glorified water turns out effective IT WILL WORTH THE $12.
And it was.
Though it might be important to note that up until this point, I'd been stubbornly scraping off the BB cream + eyeliner off my face with baby wipes following the logic of 'if it's good enough for an infant butt, it should be good enough for my face'. I really don't know what kind of education I'm really getting, but that train of thought it sketchy and best, and this micellar water thing is definitely an improvement on that.
