Hello all, I am back with a new post as promised. Today I am here with another review post. The product I am going to review today is a very famous makeup remover cum cleanser cum toner. It is the Bioderma Sensibio H2O micellar water. Bioderma is a well-known French skincare brand. They have a variety of products for almost every skin concern. Sadly, only a few products are available in India. I think among the few the Sensibio H2O is the largest selling product in India.
Before I proceed, let me tell you about micellar waters. Micellar waters are solutions that remove makeup and cleanse your face without the need to wash off. You can cleanse your face with a micellar water and just go to bed right after that. No fuss, right?
Now, let’s jump into the review-
Price: 599 INR for 100 ml and 860 INR for 250 ml.
Packaging: Bioderma Sensibio H2O comes in a clear plastic packaging with a pink flip open cap. The product description and the ingredients list is attached to the bottle in two separate labels. The packaging is sturdy and travel-friendly. The 100 ml pack is almost like a travel-sized packaging which is great if you want to carry it everywhere.
Product: The product is a water-based formula with a substantial cleansing property. It even looks like water. It is mildly scented although it is said to be fragrance-free. The best part is that it doesn’t contain alcohol.
My Experience: I love using a toner after cleansing my face. It gives me a feeling of the cleaner face. I have been using the Bioderma Sensibio H2O for a month and I can say I am totally impressed by its quality. This multipurpose solution helps to remove makeup (even the most stubborn ones) as well as cleanse and tone your skin. As a perk for lazy people, it doesn’t require to be washed off afterwards (but I like to wash my face to finish off the cleansing process). I don’t like my toners to be scented but this one just bothers me much because it is subtly scented. It is safe for eyes. It doesn’t irritate my eyes or trouble my vision. It removes makeup very well and without any hassle. It is able to remove waterproof makeup from my eyes so gently without pulling and tugging. That’s definitely a great thing.
I have made a habit of using this product on a daily basis. I like to use it in the mornings because that is the time when my skin tends to get the oiliest and grimy. I use it after I cleanse my face with my favourite cleanser. It is non-oily but it doesn’t help with oiliness, neither it claims to do so. When it comes to removing makeup, I like to soak some of the product on a cotton ball or pad and hold it in both my eyes for a good 10-15 seconds and then wipe off. I learnt this technique from Debashree, an Indian YouTuber. It magically removes all the makeup (waterproof and non-waterproof) and grime. I had been using the Lakme Absolute Bi-Phased Makeup Remover but I ended up hating it as it burns my eyes. Now, I am absolutely happy with my Bioderma Sensibio H2O as a makeup remover as well as a mild cleanser cum toner. The best part is that you don’t need to carry a tonne of products when you are travelling. This product is an all-in-one product that can replace your makeup removers, cleansers and toners.

Overall, the product is something every woman needs to have in their kitty. It is affordable in terms of longevity. The 100 ml products go for a long time as it needs a little to clean up your face. I am in love with this product and I will be repurchasing it once I finish it. I recommend this product to everyone out there. I hope you liked my review.
