I'm a fan of many Guinot products and am almost at the end of my first bottle of this cleanser. Although it is a fine and gentle micellaire water, it is not exceptional and there are others, especially BioDerma, that are just as good and much less expensive.

But if someone wants to stick with Guinot, I found that it does a good job to do a light cleansing, such as at the end of a hot day when you haven't worn makeup and just want to clean your skin; or if you've used a heavier cleanser, e.g., Eve Lom, and want to remove any traces of the cleanser, it's also good. I dampen a cotton square, squeeze our any excess water, and then dampen it again with this cleansing water. Wipe your face and then if you like, splash with just a little water to finish.

For me it was not good to remove eye makeup. But decant a little into a small bottle and take it with you on a plane trip to refresh your skin mid-flight. No rinsing necessary.

First of all I must say that I never use any waterproof makeup. So I can't tell you if this product removes it or not. But I personally think that it's not what it was made for. It's just a toner that you can use for your eyes too. And it removes dirt and non-waterproof makeup pretty well.
This stuff is very good for travelling, when you cannot take dozen of bottles with you. It's very mild, non-irritating, but it's not "simply a water". It smells very nice - white flowers or something like that. I'm not sure if I repurchase it, but it's definitely not bad.

This is ok. Definitely not the only thing you need to clean your face. I will use it to remove some foundation before i actually clease my face, outside of that it is kinda worthless. Not worth the price IMHO.

This is probably the most dissapointing product Iv ever used. The product itself is sorta ok if you wat a product for the sake of a product and dont actually want it to do anything, to be honest water works about as well, it doesnt cause reactions I guess so I gave it a lippie for that. I have had similar one step cleansing products from companies like simple which were marginally better, but from Guinot and at the prices they charge I expected WAY more! Would buy again? you gotta be kidding, when I can get something almost the same straight from the tap for free!

Well I got this product free in a 'guinot discovery' pack which came free with a manicure once. I am 19 and my skin is not that great, I have a few breakouts most weeks and had been using some super-exspensive stuff called 'cellex-c' which was supposed to banish all my spots but just smelled rough and left my skin dry and made no difference to the spots at all. Anyway one week I went on holiday and I didn't want to take the exspensive stuff I was using in case it got broken in transit, so i took this small 70cl bottle of guinot cleansing water that I had got free.
Needless to say I never used the cellex-c stuff again! This stuff cleared my skin so much in that one week of holiday; it didn't dry it out and although I thought that just rubbing some lotion on your face with a pad rather than using a rinse-off wouldn't keep my face oil-free I was very much mistaken because this does a great job.
Like the girl two posts below, I sometimes repeat application if the cotton pad looks dirty after the first time and this at least makes my skin feel even fresher - though that may just be me imagining it.
This stuff has got rid of the dry areas of my face and got rid of blackheads since being a toner it shrinks your pores. It is also a VERY good makeup remover, even good with waterproof mascara and all that.
So a big thumbs up from me! I'm definitely going to explore the rest of the range now too.
... Although it is a bit pricey, I buy mine on eBay from people selling the 70cl ones they got free in the kits!

Great smelling product and toner. I use waterproof mascara and it doesn't handle that as well. Another great from Guinot though. I think I will stick with dual action removal in the future and stay with separate toner.

Fab. Cleanses/tones in one step and does not dry-out, seems to leave the skin feeling a tad moister even. Supple actually. Just squeeze on to a cotton ball (you really have to grip the plastic bottle though because the opening thingy is small... but that's good bc you don't waste anything) and wipe over your face. I usually do this twice because I'm weird that way. Anyway, follow with moisturizer. This is great when you've stayed over at someone's house, you just left the gym, or you overslept. Love it. It's like $25 for 8 ounces if I remember correctly.
