Bioderma Sebium H2O Purifying Cleansing Micelle Solution

I never got the original hype about Bioderma to be honest. I like Miceller Waters in general but just feel they don't clean the skin quite enough to be adequate on their own. When used with a good old scrub-your-face-with-water-and-cleanser regime though, this works great. I vary on how I use this, sometimes before cleansing my face with warm water if my Mascara is annoying me too much or I feel like I am wearing a heavy dose of make-up which should be first removed with a water based cleanser.

Other times I use it after cleansing my face with warm water, just to remove those last bits of eye shadow and mascara. I mean surely it can work as a 'toner' eh? This particular one is made for Oily-Combination skin types in general as opposed to the original one which I believe was for geared towards all skin types. It's meant to help control the level of oil production on the skin as well. It's too early for me to judge that but for now I like how it works, like how fresh it smells and like how it leaves my skin feeling.




I like the fact that it can be used with cotton wool on the arms, shoulders, chest and back which are usually affected with body acne, blemishes and scars. Unlike other miceller waters or water based cleansers, this one does not leave skin with dry patches or strips off it's moisture. I feel quite comfortable after cleansing my face with this, it feels quite like rinsing your face with water. Having said that, water on its own wouldn't remove traces of mascara and layers of foundation as this does. Two thumbs up for the hard working product!



Overall, I wouldn't ditch my creamy facial cleansers for this one but it's a good addition to have in your skincare kit. This particular 100ml size for £4.50 is a darn good bargain especially if you're planning to head to a holiday soon as it's dinky enough to fit in your luggage and even pass through the limit allowed to take with you on the flight. Don't forget to carry some cotton wool!
