• Bioderma Sensibio H2O

    I have read and heard so many wonderful things about Bioderma's Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution.  It is a water based makeup remover that is said to remove makeup while soothing your skin.  Another thing this promises is that you will not feel the need to wash your face after using this product.
    At first I was rather hesitant to shell out R149 for in essence, a cup of water.  When I used this for the first time I had purposefully worn quite a bit of makeup to see how this would work.  The ingredients in the bottle do not scream traditional makeup remover, so I was rather sceptical when I started applying the product to the cotton wool.  

    I started running the cotton ball across my face and found that it easily removed the BB cream and blush on my face.  But the true test was on my eyes, the eyeshadow came off incredibly easily but for the real test - the mascara - it came off rather easily.  After 3 passes with the cotton wool the mascara was completely off.  I tried this on waterproof mascara, but because this is water based, it does not remove the waterproof mascara easily.  You do need to let the cotton balls rest on your eyes for a bit in order to remove the mascara easily.  But this method does work.

    After removing my makeup my face felt freshly washed with absolutely no sticky feeling.  This is perfect for people who are in a rush or are too tired to remove their makeup, within a short while your face is perfectly clean and you can jump straight into bed.

    The main reason why I have grown to like this product is that it does not irritate my eyes at all.  With other makeup remover products I worry about getting the product in my eyes and they leave my skin feeling sticky aferwards - which makes me wash my face afterwards so it's an additional step I do not need because I hardly wear makeup, so washing my face is usually enough.  This makeup remover is very gentle on my skin and doesn't irritate my eyes at all.

    R149 for 250ml makes this seem rather pricey, but a bottle will probably last me at least 2 months.  To me the cost is not too unreasonable because it does save me from having to use face wash at times (when I am too lazy to wash my face).  I have only seen this product at Dischem so I am not too sure where else it can be bought.

      1. I was also very reluctant but I was having an impulsive buying day and just caved in. I love it now.

    3. Mine has become such a must have I will keep on buying it. I use masses of the stuff! I use it to completely clean off my makeup and then I use my cleanser afterwards, so I double cleanse. Some mornings when it is cold and I don't feel like wetting my face I just use this as a cleanser. My skin is sensitive and it has tolerated it brilliantly

      1. I agree - it is worth it, especially when you don't want a wet face in winter :P
