01 Aug Why I LOVE Micellar Water
Micellar water has become a hugely popular beauty product over these past few years. Most brands now produce some form of micellar cleansing product, and micellar water has become a staple in many beauty routines.
French skin care brand Bioderma were the original creators of micellar water over 20 years ago! One is sold somewhere in the world every 2 seconds and it’s no wonder this cult beauty product has become a favourite of both everyday women and beauty professionals around the globe. As Bioderma’s micellar solution gained cult beauty status, countless other beauty brands followed suit and began to produce their own versions of micellar water.
However Bioderma’s technology and manufacturing process is second to none, resulting in an extremely refined and effective formula. Although there are now many other brands of micellar water on the market, I still haven’t found one that’s anywhere near as gentle, or that’s as effective at removing make-up.
Bioderma Micellar water is renowned for it’s ability to thoroughly cleanse the skin while still being supremely gentle. It’s a product which is loved by make-up artists in particular, because it removes even the most stubborn make-up but it’s fine to use on all skin types, even the most sensitive.
Why is Bioderma Micellar Different?
Firstly, Bioderma put a lot of research into making sure their products respect the skin’s natural balance. They use ultra gentle micelles that solubilise in water and easily collect and remove dirt, oil, and make-up from the skin. And they will NEVER strip or irritate the skin.
Unlike their competitors Bioderma’s Micellar solutions are soap-free, fragrance-free, alcohol-free and hypoallergenic.
When you use Bioderma micellar solutions you notice how smoothly they glide across the skin, while many of the cheaper varieties don’t feel as smooth and seem to create a bit of drag on the skin, which isn’t nearly as satisfying. Additionally, the cheaper versions aren’t as effective at removing make-up, whenever I’ve used them I find I need to use more product and more cotton pads to cleanse properly.
Bioderma make several varieties of their famous micellar waters, Sensibio H20 (the most popular) is for sensitive skin, Sebium H20 is for oily skin, and Hydrabio H20 is for dry skin types.
Micellar Water is used by soaking a cotton pad and wiping it across the skin, for a quick yet thorough cleanse.
Which Bioderma Micellar Solution Is Right for Me?
All Bioderma Micellar Waters are very gentle on the skin, and perfect for removing make-up, waterproof mascara and cleaning lash extensions.
This is the most well known of the Bioderma Micellar Solutions. Created over 20 years ago for sensitive skin, Bioderma Sensibio Micellar water is the first Micellar Water created using biomimetic Micelles. It effectively removes impurities and makeup on both face and eyes.
The reason it gained such popularity is without a doubt because it’s quick, yet very effective.
It is a gentle, fragrance-free and alcohol-free daily cleansing and makeup removing water with the same PH level as the skin. The skin is left feeling fresh, soft, and clean with no sticky residue and it doesn’t need to be washed off.
Sébium H2O Micellar Solution has the added Fluidactiv patent which regulates oil flow and reduces pores and blockages. It has the active ingredients of Zinc gluconate and Copper which leave the skin feeling refreshed, and purified.
