Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water ($19.95) is one of thee most popular micellar waters around and I’m sure you’ve likely already tried it or you might just be on the verge of indulging in a bottle.
My first experience with micellar water was with Mandom Cleansing Express Water from Japan back in 2008. Honestly, at the time micellar waters weren’t seeing the popularity and trending they currently are from both mid-range and budget friendly brands so it was a bit of an innovative product for me. I loved Mandom’s formula but the cleansing water thing never really caught on for me as I always feel like I have a bit of left over makeup on my skin after I use one.
But honestly, Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water is a formula that actually deserves all its ravings. It really does do an excellent job of removing makeup plus it’s very gentle on skin.
Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water is available in a three sizes the best value though is the $19.95 16.9 oz size in my opinion. If you take a moment to add up the amount of eye makeup remover you’re buying and replacing quite often plus cleansing oil or cleansing foam you’ll realize that spending a twenty dollar bill on a 16.9 oz size of Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water is a deal and a half.
As I mentioned above I never feel fully clean using cleansing waters BUT…! I will say I keep a bottle of this around the do a primary clean or a quick clean. So if I get home late and I’m too lazy to go through the entire cleansing process I just saturate a cotton pad with this and it removes all my makeup easily! On the nights I have a little more time I typically use it to remove my eye makeup and I swipe my face with it too before following up by cleansing my face with water and my regular cleanser or cleansing oil.
The thing you have to love about this formula is how gentle it is. Unlike cleansers it never dries your face out nor does it leave your face feeling tight. It doesn’t strip skin in the least and it contains absolutely no fragrance or ingredients like alcohol that will break down collagen.
It does a surprisingly job with mascara and heavier eye makeup as well and removes about 95% of it which is impressive for a cleansing water! This doesn’t leave a residue behind either so no sticky, tacky film is left on your face after removing your makeup.
I’m still not convinced its the end all to cleaning my face but I will say that Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water is one of the most impressive micellar waters I’ve had the pleasure of using and one of the gentlest. If you have sensitive skin or even skin that tends to dry out easily after cleansing this is one product you should add to your cleansing routine.
