Bioderma SEBIUM H2O Micelle Solution (Combination or Oily Skin)
|Bioderma Sebium H2O Purifying Cleansing Micelle Solution Review|
Remember 3 years back when micellar water was all people could think about? Hyped to be used by the models backstage? The original brand behind it is Bioderma. In fact, I got to know about Bioderma because of this. Unfortunately, I could never found the perfect micellar water.
My first was the travel size of Bioderma Sensibio H2O (meant for sensitive skin) which was good but failed for stronger makeup like mascara. Next, was Deborah Milano which was one of the products I regret buying. I liked to Vichy Thermal Cleansing Micellar but I wanted to explore more. For some reason, I want them to work for me and I am not giving up on them! So, when I saw this one from Bioderma which is meant for oily skin, I had to try. If it is designed for cleansing oily skin, it will be stronger. No?
Price: Rs 1100 ( 219,000 IDR) See Bali Haul.
Availability: Via international website. Not sold in India by Bioderma.
Color: Contains added color.
Fragrance: Contains added fragrance.
How to use: Apply to cotton and wipe your face with the wet cotton. No need to rinse. I personally do not dip it completely in cotton and leave a portion of my cotton dry. It works better for me this way and does not leave any sticky film behind.
Efficacy: Effectively removes light makeup. It does work tad better than the one designed for sensitive skin - Sensibio H2O. Removing mascara and eye makeup takes time. As I do not support repeated wiping of the eye areas (most prone to wrinkles), I use oil makeup remover for that. I must point out here that it does not sting eyes or irritates sensitive skin.
Overall: Not the greatest but better than Bioderma Sebium. Because of the availability and the price factor, I won't make it my staple even for light makeup.The pro about this cleansing solution that it does not leaves behind anything that needs to washed off (like oil does). So, you wear light makeup but do not get enough time to cleanse it off later in the night, then you may try this. But, hey! please do not make it a habit. Your skin needs to be cleansed properly. Also, the presence of added fragrance and color makes it a skincare product that is better to be avoided.
