Product Reaction

For the last two weeks or even more, my skin was transformed from a fairly normal, smooth complexion to an irritated, bumpy and itchy monstrous of a skin. I was desperate! Never in my life my skin looked so bad!

It took me a while until i realized who the culprit was, as i haven’t changed anything major in my skincare routine and my lifestyle is fairly healthy (decent diet, gallons of water and sleep marathons).

Introducing Garnier Simply Essential 2 in 1 Makeup Remover.

As a cleanser it is brilliant, it removes my mascara like nobody’s business and all for 2,49 euro a pop. I really thought it was my Bifacil replacer – same bi-phasic, oil in water composition at a great price and big bottle.

Unfortunately it broke me out really bad. As i said it took me a while to realize and by a process of elimination i narrowed it down to the cleanser.

Every day my skin was looking worse and feeling very itchy, it was driving me insane. First i thought i had hayfever so i was popping the antihistamines with not much relief. Luckily for me, i had 4 days off last week so i didn’t wear any makeup and didn’t used the cleanser. The symptoms were gone and my skin was recovering slowly. When i went back to work, of course i’ve used it again and in an hour after, the itching began. What can i say, Miss Marple has nothing on me lol

Typical, i find a good and cheap eye makeup remover and I’m allergic to it.

Have you used the Garnier 2in1 before? Wonder if its just me…

    Oh My God, that sound terrible! I’ve used the green version of this, it was ok with me as far as I can remember! That’s awful! Hugs! It’s good though that you realized it and stopped using it! xx
