French Skincare Staples: Bioderma Créaline H2O Solution

Bioderma Créaline H20 Solution - Link

When in Paris there are many tourist attractions you have to visit, the Eiffel Tower, the Champs-Élysées, the Louvre and City Pharma. Yes I think any beauty blogger can agree that the City Pharma is high on your Paris tourist list as they not only stock many amazing skincare brands but the prices are ridiculously cheap. And naturally top of my list to buy was the highly coveted Bioderma Créaline H20 Solution. With so many makeup artists and beauty bloggers raving about this product I knew that I needed to stock up with the double pack.

Bioderma Créaline H20 Solution is described as a soothing non-rinse cleanser and makeup remover. The micelles contained in its formula effectively micro-emulsify impurities while maintaining the skins balance, perfectly cleansing and removing makeup from the face and eyes. Designed for those with sensitive skin this formula is alcohol-free and smooths and cools the skin whilst is cleanses. 

You know what I love most about this micellar water? It's the fact that it provide a hassle free way of removing makeup, all you need is a cotton pad or two and a couple of minutes of your time and before you know it your makeup is gone. No faffing around with a Cleanse and Polish if it's late at night, and you honestly just can't be bothered to spend time cleansing your face when you could be spending the same amount of time lounging around in bed. 

What I really like about this is how it feels like water on the skin, yet removes my makeup with ease, even waterproof formulas. In comparison to my trusty Garnier I feel that one cotton wool pad with Bioderma will remove all my makeup whereas I can sometimes be going through three or four pads with the Garnier. This cleanser feels so gentle on the skin, and I feel like my skin hasn't been stripped of anything nor is it left feeling oily despite removing oils, makeup and daily grime. With continued use I have found that it has helped with the overall condition of my skin and my breakouts are less frequent and heal quicker. 

I can see why this now gets so many positive reviews, and why it blows any other micellar product out of the water. I'm glad that this is more ready available with UK outlets such as Boots and Feel Unique, meaning you don't need to hop abroad to get a top up. 

I'd love to know what your French skincare staples are!
