I absolutely love this product. I use this product to cleanse my skin when I have no makeup on, so I can't rate how well it removes makeup. I apply some to a DHC silky cotton pad and wipe my face. It cleans my face well and makes it feel as soft as a baby's bottom. It is fragrance-free, comes in a bottle with a flip-top and has a watery consistency. I order this online from Spain.

I got this recently and I am happy to say it takes off alllll my stage make up without hassle. I am weary of using only this without water so I have to wash it off afterwards but it works great! It's perfect for my dry, sensitive and acne prone skin and my skin seems to have less blackheads :)
I've been using this on and off now for about 3 years. My opinion of this has
changed numerous times over this period, mostly due to the nature of this
cleanser. As you can tell from reading the reviews this is not a traditional
cleanser that you rinse off - its more like using toner with cotton wool, only
its highly efficient at removing residue from the skin surface.
On 'clean' skin (no mu or sunscreen) this is an excellent mild cleanser that
removes dirt perfectly, yet also hydrates, soothes and doesnt cause breakouts or
leave a greasy residue. Often even the mildest rinse off type cleansers can dry
my skin out and irritate it, or they flare my SD.
I wear water resistant sunscreen on most days, and it is this I have so many
problems with - removing it without upsetting my skin. I've actually tried every
single cleansing method available to find the best method to remove ss...
cleansing oils are quick and easy, but they often both dry out my skin and also
leave an oily residue in places, and my skin is too dehydrated to follow with
another cleanser. I also believe most oils exaserbate my SD so i avoid these
now. Foaming cleansing are just too drying, and cream cleansers leave residue.
Crealine h20 is quite capable of removing even the most resistant ss, however
the very fact that you use it like toner means you have to sweep every part of
your skin, and if your ss is substantial the cotton wool can become saturated
quickly so you dont know if you're still removing ss in some places. This is the
main problem i have with this cleanser, full face/neck removal. If I lived in
france where this is cheap and available everywhere i would just use tons of it
to remove my ss, but since i have to import it (500ml bottles, that still dont
last that long) i have to be more cost effective with it.
Right now I am using this as a follow up cleanser/toner to using Cerave cleanser
on days I wear ss. Cerave can loosen and remove the bulk of ss (without over
drying the skin), and any residue can be removed with this. It also means I use
less Crealine since my skin is almost clean, and the cotton pads swipe over the
I'm not a mu wearer (im a guy), but I would imagine this would be perfect to
remove eye mu, or other. This also makes a perfect all over face cleanser,
unless maybe you have a full face of something to remove... you can still do it,
dont get me wrong, but its not cost effective for me.
Bioderma came recommended to me by my facial lady, and it works. My face instantly felt refreshed and my makeup came off easily. Perfect for the gym or those nights when you just can't be bothered to do anything. Would definitely repurchase. This was a dream for my slightly sensitive/combination skin, and came with no effort!
I've gone through several bottles of this by now. It does a decent job of getting eyeshadow off without stinging my eyes or leaving them feeling oily. I generally use this as a toner after cleansing with a regular cleanser or as a "refresher" by itself when I don't feel like going through all the water-splashing mess of washing my face... There is also a Bioderma Sebium micellar cleanser that works just as well and may be the tiniest bit more appropriate for oilier skins, but I don't use it anymore because it has zinc in it... which I don't want to use in combination with my vitamin C stuff.
The only way this could be any better is if it was capable of removing sunscreen on its own. ... I do find, that if my skin is an irritated or dry phase, it gets less irritated (less stripped) if I'm not using a typical rinse-with-water cleanser.
I have nothing more to say about this cleanser except that its the best! No further explanation. No other cleanser comes close to it.
This is one of the best cleansers i've ever used! It's a no-rinse cleanser, meaning to say, just use cotton pads to swipe over and it should remove everything. However, I do cleanse my face with my normal cleansing oil before using this. Even after washing my face first, i still see some dirt and makeup residue on the cotton pads after swiping with Bioderma. I've pretty dry skin and after using this for a few days, I do feel my skin becoming softer and smoother to touch! Just wish I could get hold of this product more easily! I had to order it from Taiwan specially!
Amazing! Very gentle formula that works well on makeup and dirt. Although I was a bit hesitant at first since it looks so watery, my doubts were quickly allayed when I tried it out the first time. It works well on even waterproof makeup and (supposedly) also doubles as a toner. While I've been hestitant to use it on its own (I usually use it to remove excess grime after washing with Cetaphil...and either the Cetaphil isn't doing its job or the Bioderma is just amazing, because it does seem to remove even more dirt than I thought I had on my face after the cleanser). It leaves my face feeling clean but doesn't strip moisture at all AND my skin has been clearer since I've added this to my nightime ritual...a complete winner. Will be getting again.
My best friend brought me back a 2-for-1 pack from Paris - I'm spoiled with a whole Litre! I pour a little into my hands and splash on my face, concentrating on my eyes where I wear more makeup. This removes all my sunscreenm, mascara and liner perfectly, cleanses, and after a splash of water, leaves my skin adequately hydrated. I cannot imagine a more perfect product for a lazy girl like me, except for maybe if the texture was a little thicker for easier application. I will continue to buy this, it's fantastic.
I've recently used up my first bottle of Bioderma (fragrant free/sensitive), couldn't find it in the drug store around my area so I bought a package of Comodynes cleansing wipe instead... bad move... skin reacted very differently, this morning my nose started peeling. Will run to get another bottle of Bioderma tonite, not only it removes all my makeup (sunscreen, foundation, down to the heavy duty mascara), i figured it made my skin smoother, less blackheads, and absolutely no irritation to my eyes whatsoever.
I've been using different brands of cleansing oil in the past several years and most of them left my skin with tiny bumps or made it completely dry and flaky. I've tried SKII, DHC, Shiseido, IPSA, Dior, MAC, etc nothing even comes close to Bioderma Sensitive. Well... with the exception of Fresh Soy cleansing milk which is also excellent but with a very high price tag... all is all Bioderm is so far THE BEST all aspects considered.
