Does nothing special for my skin and was not cheap.

Oof this stuff gave me horrendous breakouts. Although my skin is highly acne-prone it's also very sensitive so I think the squeaky-clean feeling this gave me probably irritated my skin. Unfortunately, I didn't fare too well with the Sensibio one either.

I love Bioderma Sensibio. Sebium didn't look much different in terms of ingredients, so I gave it a chance. My skin is oily and acne prone. A lot of people told me Sebium would be better suited for my skintype out of all the Bioderma cleansing waters.

Unfortunately, this is my least favorite. It didn't seem to cleanse my face nearly as good when compared to Sensibio. Sebium seems to leave a light film on my skin, which inflamed my pores.

Obviously I won't repurchase. This product did my skin no favors. I will stick to Sensibio when choosing Bioderma. My ultimate "holy grail" cleansing water though is Simple Micellar Cleaning Water.

For those of you that *do* like Sebium, I'd rec giving Boots No7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Water Normal to Oily a chance. They are very similar in terms of ingredients and performance. But Boots is much less expensive. (FYI I disliked the Boots version for the same reasons.)

It did nothing for me and to be honest, I don't see the point of this one. I used it to remove makeup but It wasn't great at removing eye makeup so I had to use a separate remover for that. It just added another unnecessary step for me. I'm happy to remove my eye makeup with a remover that works really well or with warm water and then just wash my face with a lovely cleanser. I don't need this.

I have acne-prone skin and i am following an acne regimen given to me by my dermatologist. This micellar water takes out all of my make up easily and without me having to rub it off. It even takes out my eye makeup without trouble ( mascara, waterproof eye liner, swadows etc). The only thing i don't enjoy is the smell..In the beggining it did not bother me but after a couple of uses it seems to be getting worse. It also dries my skin slightly but that is okay since i have to dry out my acne to make it go away. I always use a gel cleanser after this so that i will not have any residue of my makeup on my face. I am on my 3rd bottle and i will continue repurchasing it.

I'm part of the church. It takes off my makeup really well and doesn't sing my eyes. I've tried some of the other micellar waters out there but this one is still the best.

I usually use this to get rid of all my make up, and I cleanse my face with a different product. It makes my skin feel a little dry if I just use this product alone. It really gets rid of every bit of makeup and dirt on your skin. The only thing that turns me off this product is the fact that it has fragrance in it. Other then that, I really like it.

Aside from the scent, I find Bioderma Sebium works very similarly to Sensibio (formerly Crealine, the one in the pink bottle). Sebium has a light floral scent that is completely unnecessary. Otherwise, I have copied and pasted my review for Bioderma Sensibio below since everything I said applies:

I have dehydrated normal-to-dry skin and I do not use any waterproof makeup. I find this works very well at removing makeup. It's very convenient that it is rinse-free as well, and is easy to use for spot touch-ups if I've messed up my eyeliner, for example.

I find it comparable in performance to Lancome Bi-Facil eye makeup remover however Bioderma does not leave that slight oily residue. It also is more effective than the other cleansing water I have tried (Koh Gen Do's version which needs a bit more product to do the same job and has a slight plant odor).

However, given my dehydrated skin I have a preference for products that are hydrating and Koh Gen Do delivers on that account. For people with normal-to-oily skin types though, I imagine Bioderma would suit their needs for a rinse-less makeup remover.

This is my HG micellar cleanser! First tried a travel sized bottle as recommended by a sales and have repurchased this many times since. This is my first step before using my regular foaming/gel cleanser. A few drops on a cotton pad is all I need to remove long lasting/waterproof makeup. I also keep a small bottle of this with cotton pads in my gym bag to use after a workout. It degreases my oily t-zone and leaves my whole face refreshed but not dried out.

Have been using this product for two years now, this is amazing! Smells nice, doesn't dry out my face, doesn't feel sticky, but feels moisturizing and refreshed! Also does a good job removing my make up. Have been repurchasing every time I ran out.
