This is a pretty standard/basic micellar water. I can only compare it to the Garnier version (I previously tried & reviewed the Garnier All in 1 - pink cap). I think this takes the edge when it comes to using it as a solo cleanser, partially due to the fact I didn't feel like my face had any film or slimy residue remaining after cleaning my face. I noticed it slightly with the Garnier, but not significantly so. This micellar water does a decent job at removing regular mascara, but forget it when it comes to waterproof - just get an eye makeup remover. The product does not claim it removes waterproof mascara on the package, but I thought I'd point that out. This product is really a great value, it is non irritating and gets the job done. I'd definitely repurchase. I'm not a huge fan of the packaging, it feels a little cheaply designed but is sufficient.
