Drew Barrymore swears by these “gentle” cleansing pads


As a beauty brand owner (beauty of flowers) and daytime talk show host, Drew Barrymore spends her fair share of time in the makeup chair. And she loves it. But she also enjoys the feeling of a freshly cleansed face, for which she relies on a combination of products that never lets her down: Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Pads and Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water.

“After a long, busy day of makeup, there’s no better feeling than taking it all off,” Garnier partner Barrymore recently said. CNN underlined. “This combo of micellar water and reusable cleansing pads is gentle yet very effective.”

The cleansing pads come in packs of three and can be washed up to 1,000 times, making them ultra durable and eliminating the need for unnecessary (and often irritating) makeup wipes. They are also different from the standard reusable cotton rounds in that they are made of super soft and plush microfiber that feels like a pillow on the skin.

“I’m in love with these pads. I have two sets and use them to remove my makeup every night. They wash well and get softer every time,” wrote an Amazon reviewer. “The absorbency is nice because it doesn’t absorb all the product and prevents you from putting it on your skin,” adds another.

The pads are designed to be used with Garnier’s micellar water, which is available in a variety of formulas to suit different skin types. Barrymore uses the pink cap bottle for all skin types, and also loves the vitamin C infused version. Using the brand’s micellar technology, the water acts like a magnet to gently cleanse and remove makeup without leaving a greasy or oily residue. With the help of the cleansing pads, no violent rubbing or pulling of the skin is needed to reveal a clean canvas.

The water has over 49,000 Amazon reviews and a 4.7 star rating. Plus, you can get a huge bottle for under $10.

“I’ve been using this product for years and it leaves my face clean without drying out,” raves one buyer. Another says it’s “better than any makeup remover I’ve ever bought.”
