If you’ve seen my post/video about the TAAJ Miceller make up remover you’ll know I was on the hunt for a similar product that wasn’t as harsh on my skin and after a lot of googling and review reading I went with a product I have wanted to try for ages and that is the Bioderma H2O Micellar Solution. Bioderma is a French brand which isn’t particularly expensive over there and is easily found on eBay but not without the hefty price increase! The one I got is for sensitive skin which I though was my best bet because my skin does seem to dry up if I use products intended for oily skin.
This is a really nice gentle but thorough cleanser. I would say it takes a bit more work to get my make up off with this conmairped to the TAAJ one but it’s a small price to pay for not having my skin dry out completely.
It has no scent to it at all so great for you sensitive skin types and the consistency is basically water. The idea behind micellar waters is basically water with molecules mixed in which break down your make up rather than smear it around your face. Sounds great, right!?
This will happily remove all make up (although you will have to hold a cotton pad soaked with the solution over waterproof mascara for a good minute) and I can remover all of my make up using 3 small round cotton pads quite easily. Sometimes though I feel this is a little bit too gently and I will to do a second cleanse with a facial wash after but if you’re not like me who needs to splash my face with straight water for it to feel clean then using just this is enough to remover all traces of make up.
There is no need to rinse your face afterwards but the instructions do say to make sure your face is patted dry so great for days when you’re in a rush or just can’t be bothered to do a complete skincare routine!
Overall I really like this product! It’s effective without being drying and gently but controls the oily patches on my face and keeps me shine free all day. I bought the 250ml bottle in the photograph from eBay for about £9 and have been using is for about a month everyday and have used up half of it so it’s lasting pretty well being I’m definitely not sparing with it! I will definitely be buying the bigger 500ml bottle to stock up soon.
