I have been curious for quite some time about Bioderma Sensibio, which is a gentle skin cleanser designed for sensitive, normal to dry skin.
Bioderma Sensibio H2O 500 ml
Back of product including directions for use.
Bioderma Sensibio H2O is a gentle makeup removing solution safe to use for face and eyes, and tested under opthalmological supervision according to Bioderma’s website. It is designed to cleanse the skin and not require rinsing, but Bioderma states it is essential to dry your skin after use with a clean cotton towel. This product is made in France, and is very hard to get in the United States, although it can be found on Amazon and eBay.
Application. I soak a cotton pad with the Sensibio solution (see my Instagram photo here of my favorite brand), and then begin removing my face makeup. I soak both the front and the back of the cotton pad, and usually end up using 2-3 pads depending on how much makeup I have on to remove. While I found Bioderma Sensibio easily removes face makeup, as well as eyeshadow, I find that it does not remove my waterproof eye makeup such as waterproof mascara and waterproof gel liner, even when attempting to soak my eyes with the solution on a cotton pad for a minute. I consulted Twitter last week to see what others have experienced, and a few others reported it does not remove waterproof makeup well. The Bioderma website states it removes water-resistant makeup (which could be different from waterproof makeup – you will have to let me know). What I like about this product is how gentle it is on the skin, it literally feels just like water, easily removes face makeup and eyeshadow, leaves no residue, and does not have a scent either. After use, my skin feels refreshed, not dried out, and very clean. Sometimes I almost forget that I need to do the facial cleansing step in my routine because it removes all residue so well.
Overall, I really like this cleanser. At first I was uncertain if I would repurchase, but after using it now for 2 1/2 months, I am finding it very convenient and worth the price to me for how gentle it is to my skin. This particular bottle lasted me 2.5 months. I have since tried another version of Bioderma’s cleansing water and done a review/comparison. Please see the link below.
Have you tried the Bioderma Sensibio H2O solution and what did you think?
Where To Purchase: In the U.S., you can try reputable sellers on Amazon, or online retailers out of country. I purchased this 500 ml bottle of Bioderma Sensibio H2O on Amazon.com for $32.00 with free shipping through Amazon Prime. There are also 250 ml versions, as well as mini travel versions. If you have found a cheaper and reputable store that offers this product I would love for you to share with others in the comments below. Also, in your searching you may come across a name difference, with some bottles showing a label, “Bioderma Sensibio” and others “Bioderma Crealine”. From what I learned from searches, this is the same product, but the new name for it is Sensibio. On the Bioderma website it is also marketed as “Sensibio”.
