Micellar cleansing waters have been on the market for a while now with Bioderma being the most popular. I'm not sure of the exact science behind micellar waters but they are a soap-free product which is designed to remove make-up effectively without irritating the skin and with no need to rinse off.

I was in need of a new make up remover as my Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanse & Polish had ran out. As I always do when I'm need of something new, I looked online to see what was in the drugstores that was worth having a try as spending almost £14 each time isn't always the best. 
I came across the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water and as I've tried the Bioderma before it seemed like a good way to go. I really like the packaging as it's simple and cute, it's £4.99 which is such a bargain considering you get 400ml of product and is alcohol and fragrance free. It claims that you will get 200 uses from it, taking into account that you use 2ml on a cotton pad each time. I use around 4-5 cotton pads a time as removing eye make up is a bit tricky so I try to leave the cotton pad on for a little bit to avoid rubbing my eyes, I wouldn't recommend it for removing waterproof mascara/eyeliner. I like that it doesn't sting my eyes like other make-up removers can. After I've used it my skin does feel quite soft and it doesn't seem to dry my skin out too much.
I wouldn't use this alone to remove all make-up, I do go in with a face wash to make sure I've got rid of all leftover traces. 

Overall I think this is pretty good at removing make-up and would recommend it for the price you pay.
