ITS THE ONE! - Bioderma Sensibo

My skincare dream came true! I have always wanted to try the highly raved Bioderma micellar water range but because of my constant impulsive buys of Korean skincare brands, I haven't gotten anything off the shelves from our local markets for close to 2 years. Therefore a really huge thank you to Samplestore for sending them my way!

With micellar water taking by storms in the skincare market these days, many brands have been coming up with their very own micellar water products. So what exactly is micellar water? Micellar water is a skincare product that removes makeup and cleanses the skin, without the need for rinsing.The idea is that micelles are attracted to dirt and oil, so they are able to draw out impurities without drying out the skin.Therefore, micellar water can be used as a facial wash, makeup remover and moisturizer all in one.

Before I was exposed to the micellar water technology, my favourite make up removers were the deep cleansing oil by a renowned brand or a make up cleansing cream by a Korean brand. Both the oil and cream based products were extremely good with removing my make up thoroughly without tugging onto the skin due to the nature of the texture. However, it made my skin oilier than it already was. Also with Singapore's unforgiving humid weather, my combination skin was often on the oilier side which was frustrating. With the invention of the micellar water technology, it is safe to say that this is the perfect one for individuals of different skin types and a hero product especially for those living in tropical countries. 

When it comes to micellar water, Bioderma Sensibio H20 takes the cake. It is the non-rinse cleansing water using the Micelle Technology that removes make up brilliantly (without water!) and leaves the skin refreshed and cooling. It is no wonder why this hero product has since been a backstage secret on fashion runways, the absolute favourite cleansing product of the make up artists, models and celebrities. But of course, it isn't always about the  convenience for the famous celebrities, what about the consumers who contributes to the bigger portion of the market? This is also very much catered to the consumers, the massive female population - regardless if you are always tight on schedule, on the go, ladies who battles with fatigue yet struggling with removing make up after a late night out or simply just ladies who are too lazy to spend another minute in the bathroom trying to wipe the last speck of eyeliner off your face - this product is for you. 

ONE SOLD EVERY 3 SECONDS! The numbers speak for themselves.Why is this little pink bottle so well-loved? In just one step, Bioderma Sensibio H20 provides superior makeup removal and gentle cleansing, thanks to its unique restorative properties, skin is always left feeling soft and comfortable. Soap, alcohol and fragrance-free, this non-rinse cleanser refreshes, soothes and preps the skin for subsequent skincare. I can absolutely vouch for that. I have used different brands of micellar water and I must admit that the functions of the micellar water of different brands work the same however the stark difference between Bioderma and the other brands is that it delivers what is promised - gentle to the skin and leaves the skin feeling refreshed and cooling. It not only removes make up residue, it also removes environmental pollutants off my skin.

 The Bioderma Sensibio Gel Moussant is a gentle foaming gel with lipid-restoring properties that hydrates and calms sensitive skin. 

And because Bioderma realized the needs for a gentle cleanser after the first step of removing the make up, we now have BIODERMA SENSIBO GEL MOUSSANT! I do double cleansing in my skincare routine everyday and people have been telling me the importance of having a cleanser that should be gentle enough to the skin so it does not strip off more moisture that it should on your face. I'm guilty for not paying too much attention on the different facial foams I use from time to time and Bioderma's new Sensibo Gel Moussant is a really different cleanser from the usual ones I used. As it is gel based, it glides on the face effortlessly and cleans the face really well. The only thing I might not like is the scent of this product. This is a personal opinion and I'm sure there are people who'd appreciate this for the benefits of a gel cleanser. 

Bioderma Sensibio Dermatological Water is a face and body soothing spray made of highly purified water enhanced with an ideal balance of minerals that calms skin while maintaining healthy skin cells.

This has got to be my favourite newly launched product - I call it the mist spray! This is extremely refreshing to the skin and ideally handy when you need a freshen up during mid day. Would be great if it comes in a smaller bottle but for now, I absolutely enjoy spraying it right after toner. Which facial cleanser is approved by dermatologists, adopted by makeup artists, adored by millions of women around the world, and touted as the beauty staple you can’t live without? Bioderma.
