A few months back I was lucky enough to win a mini bottle of the cult cleanser, Bioderma Sensibo H20 Micelle Solution, in a competition from the lovely ladies over at Emerald Eyeliner. I used up that mini bottle so quickly, that when my lovely sister-in-law, Michelle, was going to Belgium for work I asked her to pick me up a bottle if she could. How excited was I when I went home this Christmas and Michelle presented me with a huge 500ml bottle of it!
If you have not heard about Bioderma Sensibo (or Bioderma Crealine as it used to be known), well then I’ll tell you about it now. This cleanser from French brand Bioderma has earned its legendary status in the beauty industry and is used by famous makeup artists and supermodels alike. It is an ultra-mild water based cleansing solution that is excellent at removing all traces of makeup; even the most waterproof of mascaras. It is alcohol. Soap and fragrance free and is formulated for all skin types, including sensitive skin. The reason this cleanser is perfect for catwalks and makeup artists is you can remove makeup again and again and it won’t cause any sensitivity issues. For example, when my best friend Grace was modelling the Maxfactor 2000Calorie Mascara Collection for me, she had to remove mascara no less than 4 times, in the space of an hour. She used Bioderma Sensibo as her cleanser and found her eyes weren't raw or sore or sensitive as expected. I have used this many times to remove waterproof eyeliner, such as Avon Supershock, from my waterline and not only did it removed it brilliantly, I wasn't left with any problems such as sore or red eyes or a film of cleanser across my eyes.
So now that you know how much I love it, let’s get onto the only issue I have with Bioderma Sensibo. It’s not available to buy in Ireland, at all. You can pick it up in many European countries with France been the cheapest, often with deals like €20 for two 500ml bottles, in many pharmacies. Michelle got this one 500ml bottle in Belgium for €20 on its own. If you aren't heading off to France anytime soon though, you can order from Le Guide Sante online, but be wary of the huge shipping costs. If you are going to France soon though, I do recommend you stock up because it is a brilliant product.
Have you tried Bioderma Sensibo? What did you think of it?
