Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution | Review


Way back in June I reviewed Bioderma Sebium H2O and it wasn't until a few months ago that I had used the original.

I'm sure everyone knows how a micellar water works by now, but the gist is that it removes makeup quickly and easily without irritating the skin.

Escentual say:

Gently cleanse your sensitive, normal to dry skin with the Bioderma Sensibio H2O, an ultra-mild, non-rinse micellar water cleanser and make-up remover.
Created to suit the needs of those who experience skin irritation and redness, the alcohol-free formula soothes and cools as it cleanses. Sensibio H2O guarantees cutaneous and ocular tolerance for the skin and the eyes with its physiological pH and soap-free base.
The cleanser removes impurities using micelles, which micro-emulsify impurities while maintaining the skin’s balance. Added decongesting active ingredients prevent irritation, making the skin feel instantly refreshed, perfectly clean and free from all make-up – including water resistant mascara.
Use twice daily, in the morning and in the evening. Soak a cotton pad with the Sensibio H2O solution, and cleanse the face and eyes. Repeat with more cotton pads until they come away clean. The solution is no-rinse, but you should gently dab your face with a clean towel after use.
The Bioderma Sensibio H2O micelle water is fragrance-free, alcohol-free, and contains no phenoxyethanol.

I only use this in the evening as the first stage of cleansing my face. I know some people treat this as their cleanser but my skin needs a bit more TLC than that. I just pop a bit on a cotton round and quickly go over my face. It does remove most of my makeup on the first attempt as I don't really wear that much every day for work.

I don't use this on my eyes purely because I have a separate product that I love for this. I can confirm that Bioderma does remove all of my eye makeup and I would be happy to use it frequently for this if there were no other options available to me.

I then follow with a cleansing oil and then a cleansing balm for lovely cleansed skin.

You can purchase the 100ml version from Escentual for £4.50. I think it is good to start with this size just to make sure you like using it.
