By now you’ve probably heard about micellar water and how it’s supposed to be a miracle cosmetic product. But do you know how it works? Micellar Cleansing Water features micelle cleansing molecules that pull oil and dirt away from the face like a magnet making it a wonder at taking off makeup– even stubborn waterproof makeup.

Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water ($19.99) is the 1st and only dermatological micellar water perfectly compatible with the skin: its fatty acid esters, the constituent elements of micelles, are similar to the phospholipids of the skin cell membranes 
and naturally help rebuild the skin’s hydrolipidic film. I’m not sure what all that means but I can tell you it works and it i extremely gentle to the skin. No wonder Bioderma is so trusted and popular — one bottle of the Sensibio H20 formula is sold around the world every two seconds!

I’ve only used one other micellar cleansing water and it left a greasy residue on my skin so that kind of put a bad spin on miceller water for me. Hence, I was skeptical of Bioderma Sensibio H2O and wasn’t convinced it was worthy of all the praise. After using it morning and evening for about two weeks I can tell you the raves are true! It does a fabulous job of removing makeup and mascara while being ultra gentle to my aging skin. My skin feels soft and hydrated with NO residue!


First I soak a cotton pad and remove my eye makeup, then using my regular cleanser, I remove my makeup followed by another cotton pad soaked in Bioderma Sensibio H2O to get any left over makeup. I’m always surprised at how much makeup is left over after cleansing! If I’m too tired to do my normal nightly routine, I use this with a few pads and it takes off my makeup nicely.

For me, the best thing about Bioderma Sensibio H2O is how gentle it is on my skin and how clean and fresh my skin feels after using it. No residue, no dryness or tight feeling. As a bonus, the ingredients are natural and safe to use without any alcohol, parabens or fragrance. It is hypoallergenic and helps to balance the skins pH.

Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water is available in three sizes: Bottle 100 ml, Bottle 250 ml and Bottle 500 ml. It may seems pricey at $19.99 (for the largest size) but remember you are replacing BOTH an eye makeup remover and a cleanser! I love that there is a small travel size too! Also check out Hyrdabio H2O and Sebium H2O.
Bottom Line: If you have dry or sensitive skin, this is one product you should think about adding to your cleansing routine. It’s perfect for over 40 ladies!
