Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Peg-6 Caprylic/Capric Glycerides, Propylene Glycol, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Mannitol, Xylitol, Rhamnose, Fructooligosaccharides, Disodium Edta, Cetrimonium Bromide
I stumbled upon this product when anamikadeewan mentioned it. Thank you!
It is one of the most sought out products in the world.
- Fantastic product, mild, fragrance-free, oil-free, alcohol-free, water based
- Very light and removes all traces of even water proof make up
- No skin irritation or oily residue after use
- No rinse required. Just to be doubly sure I use a facewash afterwards
- No breakouts
- Non-comedogenic. Suitable for all skin types including oily/prone skin
- The micelles contained in its formula effectively micro-emulsify impurities while maintaining the skin’s balance (soap-free, physiological pH)
- Though rarely, it has been reported to irritate sensitive eyes. To avoid eye irritation, don’t let it get directly into the eyes, which can happen if you drench the cotton pad in it.
This is one of the best make up removers I have used till date. I love this and use it everyday. The only issue is that it is expensive and availability is a problem. It is available online and at reputable pharmacies
Price Rs. 540 for 100 ml and Rs. 860 for 250 ml. You can buy it online from vibeforall.in.
Another micelle solution makeup remover is Vichy Purete Cleansing Micellar solution(for oily and sensitive skin). It is available in India at beauty stores and online shopping websites. It has all round positive reviews for acne prone skin. Hexylene glycol is mildly comedogenic.
