Just a super gentle but really effective cleansing water that even removes waterproof mascara. Much less expensive compared to other brands: Caudalie $3.88/oz, Koh Gen Do $3.84/oz, Bioderma $1.93/oz
I bought this in Belgium as up to a few months ago it was not sold in Italy. I bought a two 500ml pack on offer in a chemists at 19 euros so I think it was a jolly good deal. The product is really straightforward to use: just pour a little bit on a cotton pad and go all over your face. It seems so unassumingly transparent but it works really well to take off my face makeup (I use a separate eyemakeup remover). I also use it if I'm home and not wearing makeup to freshen my face as I get really oily during the day. It has had no negative effect on my acne-prone skin so so far so good! I would recommend this totally!
An emphatic YES on "would I buy this again"! This is the best skincare product I've ever purchased. If I had to use only one thing, it would be this. This takes off all my makeup, I do take my eye makeup off with a separate eye makeup remover. This leaves my face clean and calm and perfectly balanced. This is my cleanser and toner and when done I don't feel the need to use moisturizer, maybe in the winter though. My skin looks so good that I have honestly cut out the extras in my skincare and really rely on this alone. So glad I found this! I recommend it to everyone with acne-prone or combination skin types. Update: Still loving this, I'm on my 3rd bottle and have introduced friends to this miracle. A word of warning: this will make your skin purge initially but within a week or so it should be smoothe sailing. I couldn't imagine life without this product, I wouldn't use anything else if it were offered to me for free. Update: I still love this stuff, however, when I find at times my skin is oilier, I will use the foaming gel version of this and it helps control oil better for those that have oilier skin.
This works well to remove my minimal facial makeup - powder and a touch of concealer, so sunscreen or foundation. I use the Crealine h2o version for my eye makeup, after applying argan oil if I've worn something other than my standards - highlighter and a tiny bit of brown eyeliner.
As an oily and clog prone type, this could never be my "main" cleanser, but I do think my skin has improved a bit since I started using this version on my face instead of the original, and I definitely notice a difference if I don't use either.
Dye - why?
Fragrance - again...really?
Have to order it online, though that's not Bioderma's fault is it?
This product is good for removing makeup on the face without making it feel oily or stripped. However, do caution against using it on your eye area. This made my eyes sting and it did not remove my waterproof mascara at all. Will update after longer use to see if it helps improve my skin condition.
HG miracle broth for me. I use it as a toner and it just has a way of toning and removing al the makeup that might be left over, as well as dissinfecting my face and keeping acne at bay. You could litterally wipe this over your face for hours and it will not irratate your skin whatsoever. I knew it was amazing when it removed, in about 3 seconds without any effort whatsoever, the huge stain on my hand from Benefit's Chacha tint, after i had been scrubbing away with cleaners and soap to no avail.
If you are looking for a glentle cleanser for oily and acne prone skin, this isn't it.
I love Bioderma sensibio cleansing water (without fragance) for my eye area, but I really don't like this one (I only tried it on my face). It smells bad (makes me want to flush it down the toilet...) and irritates my skin.
It is an exeptional product. Removes all my make up ( i dont use on eye area), improves my skin tone, controls oiliness, feels refreshing and moisturising, smells nicely and has an amazing texture that glides on skin. A definate must have and hands down best make up remover in the market. Ideal for a refreshing break during the day and a pleasure to use at night as it offers the option, not always taken as I usually wash my fash with a foam cleanser after demake up, not to wash your face. In the past I have used clinique's take the day off, sisley's sage cleaning lotion, clarins's one step cleanser and many many more.... This one is by far the best.
After 2 months of twice daily use, I think I am able to give a fair assessment of this product. For background info, I have combo skin, with an oily t-zone and normal to sometimes dry cheeks (in the winter).
This product was my 2nd experience with micellar waters, and by far exceeded my expectations. Prior to using this product I would begin every morning with a cleanser, toner, acne treatment for select areas, and a mattifying moisturizer followed by SPF. In the evening I would use eyemakeup remover, cleanser, toner, night treatments and moisturizer for drier areas.
I was skeptical that this would be able to remove all of my facial and waterproof eyemakeup, while providing any skincare benefits and this did just that and more. I saturate a quilted cotton pad and glide it all over my face to remove all traces of foundation, blush, oils etc. I take a seperate pad for my eye area, and follow up with one more to make sure every trace is removed.
This is not harsh, and leaves a clean surface without any drying or tight uncomfortable feeling. Over the past two months my skin's texture has improved and become smooth and more eventoned. I don't require acne spot treatments as this has kept them all away. I have also noticed that this has really balanced out the oils in my skin, because when I wake up in the morning I no longer have an oilslick on my forehead or nose, but a slight sheen. I no longer use a mattifying moisturizer as I notice those dry out my tzone now. I am able to wear dewy foundations without them seperating or becoming patchy throughout the day.
Overall, this has been a blessing. I don't know how I ever lived without this product. This has eliminated the use of seperate eyemakeup remover, cleanser and toner and acne treatment. I occasionally use seperate cleansers if I exfoliate, but other than that I soley use this product. It may seem expensive at $22/250 mL or $30/500mL bottles at Shoppers Drug Mart/Murale, but considering this is a 4-in-1 product for me it has not only saveed me time, but money. I also purchase this when they're on sale, or during 20X bonus points event.
I use this product for over 3 years and really love it. It cleans your skin into the depth and works great with all the Bioderma Sebium creams. If you have very sensitive skin with rednesses, you can use Bioderma Sensibio H2O.
