Ziaja Natural Olive Micellar Water Versus Garnier Micellar Water

I have a bit of an obsession with Micellar Water, I am not ashamed to say I love them. I have tried many, some high end, some budget, some good and some not so good. At any given time I have two or three different brands in the house. Currently I have Ziaja Natural Olive Micellar Water and Garnier Micellar Water. 

I wanted to get my hands on a Ziaja micellar water fro ages after hearing great things about them. Finally it happened with their Natural Olive Micellar Water (€4.49). I really like this as it removes even my heavy duty makeup and doesn't dry out my skin which I feel some micellars can. It also is doesn't sting my sensitive skin.The price is also great considering you get 200ml.

Even though I knew I had this at home, I couldn't resist the Garnier Micellar Water when I was last in Penneys. It was €3.80!! For 400ml! Such a bargain. I know in Boots it is on offer at the moment for €4.19 but is usually €6.29. I hadn't planned on breaking this bad boy out yet but in the interest of fairness I have used it twice now. My opinion? I do like it. It's also really good at removing light and heavy makeup. The one thing I d find is that is a slightly more oily texture than the Ziaja. I can still feel a little residue on my skin after using it.

Both are extremely good value for money. If I was asked which I would recommend I would definitely go with Ziaja. I find my skin gets on much better with it.

Have you tried either of these two?


  1. I love the Ziaja one - their whole range is fab and for such a brilliant price x

  2. will have to try the ziaja one I also love micellar water so quick and easy to use x

  3. I love everything Ziaja and am happy to hear that you preferred over the Garnier one everybody raves about!! I'm not a big fan of the Garnier, find it's really wet. Like it really saturates the cotton pad...yes I know it's micellar water- just can't explain it! I'm pretty sure I have some of the Ziaja micellar somewhere, must find it and give it a whirl and we can compare notes :) x

  4. I'm using the Garnier more than anything at the moment, but have tried and quite liked the Ziaja one too. Ziaja are really well priced too!

  5. I'm using the Garnier micellar water, it does leave a bit of residue behind and my skin feels a bit drier after using it. Definitely going to look into the Ziaja micellar water, it sounds great :-)
