have you ever heard the brand called Bioderma? It's from France and this laboratory for dermatology has been for more than 20 years innovating more products for dry, sensitive or even baby's skin. They also carries hair and scalp products as well as some items for oily skin and many more. Please do read it more at www.bioderma.com.
The first product sent to me is one of their famous item called Sensibio H20. A cleanser that cleanse the skin well from daily debris to tough makeup and also suitable for those with sensitive skin. It looks like water or H20, completely looks and kinda a bit feels the same but with powerful cleansing ability yet gentle to the skin.
I've tried the product for a few days now and I just can't seem to let go. It is THAT good.
• At the cutting edge of innovation, BIODERMA has pioneered micellar solutions. Specially formulated for sensitive, normal to dry skins, the Sensibio H2O micelle solution gently cleanses face and eyes. It removes water-resistant make-up.
The micelles contained in its formula effectively micro-emulsify impurities while maintaining the skin’s balance (soap-free, physiological pH).
• Soothing and decongesting active ingredients prevent the feelings of irritation often caused by cleansing.
• Sensibio H2O guarantees excellent cutaneous and ocular tolerance (tested under ophthalmological supervision).
Alcohol-free. No phenoxyethanol.
250 ml bottle.
WATER (AQUA), PEG-6 CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC GLYCERIDES, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, CUCUMIS SATIVUS (CUCUMBER) FRUIT EXTRACT, MANNITOL, XYLITOL, RHAMNOSE, FRUCTOOLIGOSACCHARIDES, DISODIUM EDTA, CETRIMONIUM BROMIDE.
Let's see the test I've made today. I put a lot of makeup on my arm, wait for around 10 minutes or more so the makeup sets on the skin and dries up. When the makeup is set, it is a bit more difficult to remove them, that's why I need them set and completely dry ^^
Look at those eyeliners, eyeshadows, lipstick and I think all of us know how though it is to remove lip and cheek stain, and a mascara sometime difficult too. I put on 3 different brand which I've used and proven water resistant, waterproof and tough, as it is smudge and tear proof too beside being waterproof.
I put on some eyeliners too from the glittery ones to the conventional hard to crack black eyeliners, foundation, concealer, and primer, they cover the skin and filled in the lines and sometime pores too. I put lipstick too and rubbed it well, so it sticks on the skin.
I'm preparing the liquid just as much as I usually do when it's just to clean the daily debris. Damp a piece of cotton, but no need overdoing it until it drips off ^^
Just enough is the key. And a message from the Brand Manager of Bioderma Indonesia is to let the damp cotton sits for a while on a waterproof makeup, any waterproof makeup. When it is used around the eyes, it is best to closed the eyes ya.
After leaving for maybe 10-15 seconds, I do the first swipe, as always the product is comfortable, like it was just water, the feeling on the skin is refreshing and calming at the same time.
But it haven't clean all the makeup up, so I do several swiping over the area and seems like the cotton is overwhelmed heehee, I put so many makeup. I flip the cotton and do another swipe.
Now almost all of the makeup are off! Wow, even the waterproof, the one usually need cleansing oil to removed them. The one that usually several cleansing methods. Or at least need rinsing for the 'fresh' feeling.
Then, I picked up another cotton, damped it with Sensibio H20, it helps picked up all the leftover, but I still see some lip and cheek stain. It is hardly noticeable, but it's still there.
I'm still impressed, it cleans 99% of my makeup. The lip and cheek stain also faded even thou' not completely gone, but the rest are. The skin feels fresh and really comfortable. Suitable for anyone who doesn't have the time to clean the skin thoroughly or those sensitive to any kind of oil based cleanser.
Best of all is the fresh clean feeling without striking the skin dry like most cleansing facial foam, no oily residue like cleansing milk, no need rinsing like cleansing oil.
Just make sure to dry the skin after using Sensibio H20 with facial tissue or a clean towel, then pat a toner/lotion, use any serum, moisturizer and other skincare you have and that's it. So far, I can use this cleanser anytime of the day or night without worrying the skin will become too sensitive or strikingly dry (just use skincare after the cleansing ya).
