For those of you that haven’t read previous posts on My Micellar Cleansing Water series, here is a quick recap. Over the course of 12 weeks I’ll be testing 12 budget (under £5) micellar cleansers. For the past week I have been using the Good Things Acai Berry Multi-Tasking Micellar Water morning and night to remove make up and dirt. I’ve loved all of the Good Things products I’ve tried in the past and I especially like that this brand is free from parabens, mineral oils, sulphates and animal ingredients, and as the name suggests, they’re just packed with good things. As a result, I had pretty high expectations for this micellar water, let’s see how it fared.
ABOUT THE PRODUCT
The Good Things Acai Berry Multi-Tasking Micellar Water costs £4.49 for 250ml of product – exactly the same price as the Boots Botanics All Bright Micellar 3 in 1 Cleansing Solution (when it’s not on offer). This micellar cleanser claims to leave skin “cleansed, refreshed and make up free – even stubborn eye makeup is gently dissolved and removed. What’s more this micellar water is packed with anti-oxidant and vitamin-rich superfruit beauty boosters including blueberry, mango and acai berry plus hyaluronic acid to help keep skin hydrated and soothed. The perfect multi-tasker.”
This micellar cleanser is housed in a clear plastic bottle with a drip feed attachment which I think is a must for a product that has such a water like consistency as it’s much easier to control how much of the product is used. I love the pink lid!
I need 3-4 large cotton wool pads covered in product to remove my full face of make up and I’ve used about a quarter of the bottle in 7 days. I think the full bottle would last me between 4-6 weeks – a similar time frame to my beloved Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water and longer than any of the other micellar cleansing waters tested to date. The Good Things Acai Berry Multi-Tasking Micellar Water works well to remove make up, including mascara. It’s also quite refreshing which I like. But what I love most about this product, is the smell! It smells absolutely amazing, beautifully fruity, which makes it very enjoyable to use.
When using the Good Things Acai Berry Multi-Tasking Micellar Water to remove dirt and make up it has quite a soapy feel to it. It doesn’t leave a soapy residue like the Dirty Works Triple Action Micellar Cleansing Water but it does give a slightly tacky feeling until it dries completely.
This cleanser also stings slightly when it comes in direct contact with my eyes, but there is a warning on the bottle. When removing make up from the eye area it can be difficult to prevent this which is why I’d prefer if it was suitable for eye contact.
There are a lot of positives to the Good Things Acai Berry Multi-Tasking Micellar Water. I love the smell, it removes make up successfully, it has the all important drip feed attachment, it’s refreshing, cost effective and long lasting. My skin also seems to like it! I don’t really like the soapy feel of this micellar water but at least the tacky feeling goes once it has dried. Also, as with a few of the other micellar cleansers tested, it isn’t suitable for direct contact with eyes which isn’t ideal when it’s a product for removing make up, including eye make up. I’m a bit on the fence with this micellar cleanser, but I do know that the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water still wins top spot!
