Review: Bioderma Crealine H2O Micelle Solution



I have been wanting to do this review for a pretty long time, but always managed to talk myself out of it. This is a product that has been very widely reviewed across various beauty blogs, so what can I bring to the table? It was on a recent Bbloggers Chat that I was reminded of one of the reasons that I decided to start my blog in the first place. I want to share products that I love with you, whether you may have read about them before or not - no two people will ever react to a product in exactly the same way, and so I decided to give one of my favourite ever beauty products its very own post to share with you guys.


I first came across the Bioderma Crealine H2O Micelle Solution when Lisa Eldridge mentioned it as her go-to makeup remover in one of her makeup videos. It took me a few months to finally get around to ordering it, but when I did it was love at first swipe. This cleansing water is designed to be applied over a dry face on a cotton wool pad to help to cleanse and remove traces of dirt and makeup. Some people even choose to use this in place of any other cleansers.

Personally, I use this once a day as I am getting ready for bed. I usually use around three cotton rounds soaked in the product on a full face of makeup to get my face looking pretty much naked. Of course after this there are still tiny traces of makeup that I may have missed, so this is when I move onto my regular cleanser with a hot cloth. It would be easy to use Bioderma alone to remove all of your makeup as it does it so easily. Even waterproof mascara doesn't stand a chance against this fella! I have tried used Bioderma as a standalone cleanser before, and for emergencies it works fine, but I've found that unless I use something a little more creamy on my face afterward my skin can get rather dry and irritated.


Overall this product is definitely a lifesaver, I am yet to find anything that even comes close to competing with its ability to quickly and effectively remove makeup. In terms of cleansing, however, I would recommend sticking to your favourite.

What's your favourite makeup remover?

I use this too and LOVE it! I use the green one for combination/oily skin and it's just amazing. I'm almost about to run out though so need to order some more!

I love this and think it's amazing and leaves my skin feeling very clean, but like you I also have another cleanser for my evening routine that I'm completely enamored with - Caudalie Foaming Cleanser Xx

I've never tried Bioderma's, I've always stuck to L'Oreal! It gets such good reviews though that I'll end up trying it soon enough :) xx

Seems like a great and super useful product!

I've just finished a small bottle of this and agree with the reviews it's great but have to say the L'Oreal Micellar water stands up against it and if you're only using as a pre-cleanse I don't think it's worth paying out for Bioderma. Definitely give the L'Oreal one a try for comparison, would love to know your thoughts.

Ah I've never tried any type but this, I'm looking forward to it being more readily available in the UK so that I can check out some other products too! x

Emily said...

Ahh I've heard some good things about Caudalie, but I'm still to try any of their products x

Emily said...

I really couldn't be without it now, it's one product that I don't think that I could ever replace! x

Sarah said...

The L'Oreal one most people are recommending is so good :D So if you get caught out and can't get hold of Bioderma would definitely recommend that one :) But I totally agree with you on the not using it as a cleanser! Which cleanser do you use after?
