Bioderma Sensibio H2O Review

20ml sample size
Evening everyone! So for those of you who've seen my most recent posts, my September faves, and my current skin care routine, you'll have noticed the Bioderma Sensibio H2O keeps popping up - because I am unabashedly, irrevocably in love with this product! I got sent a 20ml sample in my September BirchBox and was super excited. I've been reading all about this all over the beauty blogsphere for who knows how long and was eager to give it a go!

The problem I have is my eyes can be super sensitive when it comes to make-up removers. After cleaning them up, I'm usually left with blood shot eyes, red skin and there is always a little stubborn spot of mascara left behind. Face wipes we all known are convenient but so bad for our skin, and they drag around the eye area so much that you can say hello! to early lines and wrinkles. The skin around our eyes is so thin and delicate, we really should treat with with a little extra love!

What they say...

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)

What I say...

It's like water, a magical water sent to us from the beauty fairies in a far off distant happy healthy skin land! (This place exists, I'm sure!) My eyes feel as though they have been refreshed by a cool water, and not a spot of make up is left behind. No bloodshot eyes, no redness, just happy, fresh, clean eyes and face. It works well with my oily skin, and I've had zero acne breakouts. I generally use this before cleansing my face with a cleansing lotion. The cleansing lotion is getting so much deeper into my pores because Sensibio has taken off the top layer of dirt and make up. I've noticed a slow but steady improvement in my skin and can only imagine it would continue if I went ahead and purchased the full size bottle.

Soak a cotton pad // Hold to your eye for 10-15 seconds // Results after just a few swipes over the eye!

This is by far one of my favourite make up removers! It works so well on stubborn waterproof mascara too! In the images above I was only wearing Rimmel Wake Me Up and Maybelline The Falsies (and pink spotty pjs!) but I have used this to remove a face of make up and heavy eye make up, it took a couple of cotton pads (mine are tiny!) but it cleared away every last bit! A little goes such a long way too, my 20ml sample has been used daily for over 2 1/2 weeks now and I reckon I've still got almost a weeks worth left!

I'm always weary of jumping on a product bandwagon but I really couldn't find fault in Biodermas Sensibio H2O, it really does live up to all the hype!

Full sized 500ml is roughly £20 depending where you go on-line!
