Bioderma - Sensibio H2O (or Crealine)

Sought after by many, obtainable in return for hefty postage charges and possibly your first born. Well, not quite... I have actually found this in chemist's in Portugal, but I have to admit I am not a fan of the fact that it is still much more expensive than in France and not that easy to find. Apparently, this is the product of choice for professionals in the cosmetics' field, suiting all skin types even the most sensitive amongst us.

Does it live up to the hype? Well, after suffering horrible breakouts for a couple of months, to the point where I was at my wits end, I decided to cave in and give it a try. At first there was no change, but bearing in mind that it can take more than 5 weeks for skin to respond I persevered. I'm glad I did. This is truely a miracle product.

To remove eye makeup, the 'Lisa Eldridge' method must be used. Soak cotton pad, hold gently to eye area and wait and wait, I count to at least 10. Then gently wipe away. Using more cotton, repeat on other eye and finally the rest of the face. I would recommend using something else to clean off heavy foundation first, like a cream cleanser and then using this afterwards. Therefore ensuring every last scrap is gone and allowing this to give a deeper clean. I like to massage the cream cleanser in and then have a refreshing clean with Bioderma at night. In the mornings and on no makeup days (not frequent) I use just bioderma alone.

I have noticed a dramatic difference to my skin since starting to use this, but alas I am not prepared to search high and low for the few chemist's that seem to stock it. In conclusion, I have decided that when this is easily available I'll use it, otherwise I will continue to use other Micellar cleansers as they seem to suit my sensitive, break out prone skin much better than wash off products and cream cleansers alone.
