Bioderma Sensibio H20 micellar water, probably one of the most talked about beauty products in a long time, the hype surrounding this product is huge and when I found one bottle left in a pharmacy in Rome, I took it as my chance to jump on the band wagon. I only started using it at the beginning of this year and now have just under half left in the bottle which makes me a tad upset. After using and reviewing a couple of other micellar waters; B.Pure micellar water and L’oreal Skin Perfecting solution, I thought it was about time that I reviewed the infamous Bioderma for you all.
Micellar water works by breaking down the make-up and making it easier to remove, most of them boast that they remove eye make-up too however I found not all of them did a very good job at it. Bioderma says it removes make-up and also cleanses and soothes the skin as well. This particular one is fragrance free and suitable for sensitive skin.
I don’t use this on a full face of make-up I take all my make-up off with other products and I then take a cotton pad soaked in Bioderma and then rub it all over my face to remove any last dregs. I use this on my eyes to remove all the eye make-up and it really does work. The first micellar water that removes eye make-up that doesn’t require loads of eye pulling and poking. I also use it every morning just to get any dirt off my face from my snooze and to make my skin fresh before applying make-up again. After I’ve used it, my skin feels really fresh and smooth and never appears irritated or red, it also doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry which is a plus for me.
I really love this product, I was convinced it was just a gimmick and that it wouldn’t be any different from any other type of micellar water however I feel this one is the best I’ve used so far. I love how it removes every last bit of make-up and also that it gets my eye make-up off really well too. I have the new Gariner Micellar Cleansing Water to try once this has run out and I’m excited to see if that one really is the Bioderma dupe that everyone is saying it is. The only downside for me with this product is obviously the price and availability. You can purchase it from Escentual with the price starting at £4.50 for 100ml and £9.99 for 250ml which is the size I have but otherwise I don’t know anywhere else to buy it that I trust. I would repurchase it again as a treat but for the time being, I’ll see how the Garnier works out. If you’re happy to loosen the purse string a little, I highly recommend Bioderma Sensibio H20 micellar water.
Have you tried Bioderma? Do you think it’s worth the hype?
