I’ve raved about the Bioderma Crealine H2O solution before, but it’s always good to give you guys an update and keep you in the loop about whether I’m still using things and I can definitely say that this has become a firm favourite of mine. Gone are the days of using baby wipes to remove my makeup (unless I’ve had a few too many Ameretto’s) – the Bioderma is all I use in the evening to get off my slap!
It’s part of a new wave of makeup removers called ‘micellar solutions'; consisting of oils held in water molecules they offer the effectiveness of an oil-based makeup remover with the gentleness of water. I use this in the morning soaked in a cotton pad to quickly kickstart my skincare routine if I can’t bothered to faff around with my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish and then again in the evening to remove my makeup before using my Philosophy Purity Cleanser with the Clarisonic. I soak one cotton pad with it in the morning and then two in the evening, three if I’m wearing slightly heavier makeup and it’s all off. I have normal/combination skin and I find it to work really well with my skin – not too drying, not too oily, it has no scent, is the consistency of water and feels nice and cooling on the skin. I had the 500ml bottle and it lasted around four months using it daily.
So basically it’s an all-round winner! The only problem is it’s availability. It seems like all good things in the beauty world are hard to find! I get mine from this eBay seller who I can definitely recommend. Really fast shipping and an alright price for the UK. I just stocked up on the 500ml bottle and got a mini 100ml one for travelling – gosh it’s so cute! Quick note I purchase the Bioderma Crealine H2O Cleansing Solution Sensibo which is for all skintypes, but there is also a ‘TS’ version for sensitive skins and a green lidded Sebium H2O Micellar Solution for oily skintypes. So are you a Bioderma convert? Or does it not live up to the hype for you?
