Last month as part of my cruelty free series, I reviewed the B. Pure Micellar Water. Despite it being £4.99 and BUAV cruelty free I didn’t like it *boos from the audience*. I mentioned in my review that as I didn’t get on with it, I was now wary of trying Bioderma in case the same happened again. Some little wizards saw this and offered me the chance to try it for myself.
Bioderma Sensibio H20 Micelle Solution is a 3-in-1 cleansing water that promises to eliminate impurities without drawing out moisture from the skin. Using soothing and decongesting ingredients, the ultra-mild formula minimises irritation; leaving skin feeling comfortable and clean.
So I’ve been sat here for nearly an hour now with mind block trying to think of cool and witty ways to start this post. In that time I’ve been googling stockists so I can have another bottle of this as soon as possible as mine is dangerously close to running out. I can’t run out of this. Running out isn’t an option.
I love this product. It truly deserves the title “magic little bottle” as it has made me spellbound (wonder what spell it used… perhaps Stupefy?) I’m not the only one stunned; a bottle of this is sold every 6 seconds. I wonder how many are sold by the time you finish reading…?
I personally use this as a pre-cleanse product to remove my make up before I crack out the Liz Earle, or in the morning as a quick once over(essential for when you have slept in – who doesn’t abuse the power of the snooze button?!). It’s so gentle – it looks and feels like water. There is no odour or residue; nor any tight or stinging feeling. My skin feels comfortably clean and I personally can see a difference in my skin after use. It looks brighter, my pores seem minimised and it feels smoother.
“How does one use the Bioderma Sensibio H20 Micelle Solution?” I hear you ask.
Simply soak a cotton wool pad and gently glide it across your face. There is no need to rinse with water; however Bioderma recommend patting the face dry with a clean cotton towel. (I personally pat my skin with a dry cotton wool pad afterwards to soak up any excess as I don’t trust towels. Unless it has come straight from the washing line, in my eyes it’s not clean…no offence Mum…)
Aaand that’s enough of my crazy hygiene stories *cough* let’s move on.
I’ve seen some reviews online stating that they have had problems removing eye make-up with it. I haven’t had a problem so far; simply soak another cotton wool pad and hold it over closed eyes for a minute. Gently wipe downwards and the make up should loosen. Keep using the pad to gently wipe away the make up. I’ve removed They’re Real with this; it can be done.
Do not believe the rumours that Bioderma will be sold in Boots (I know I did and I feel very guilty now..). Bioderma want consultants to advise on skincare concerns so people do not buy the wrong product for their skin. Fear not! It is sold online at Escentual.com, and if you live in London you are lucky enough to be able to pop down to John Bell & Croyden.
Have you tried Bioderma?
