Bioderma, the overseas cult make up removing product that us girls in the USA have only heard rumors of it's incredible ability, and for the rest of the world, you probably have access or own it - DRAT
To kill the little suspense you have gathered from my non descript title, this post will be a product rave.
This was a MUST GET item on my overseas wish list, and when I saw it in the drugstore I grabbed the biggest bottle I saw. I was pretty confident I was going to like this, I am now kicking myself for not stuffing my suitcase with this liquid gold.
In short, this stuff is AMAZING.
The fact that it can be found world wide in drugstores only add stars to this already wonderful product.
This removes make up like an oil, but feels like a water. 1 cotton round, and the day's worth of make up is easily removed with a few quick swipes. All of it.
It feels like water on the skin, which is a huge plus, and I have no idea how they did it. I had recently been using a cleansing oil to remove my make up, and while I don't mind the oily feeling, since I know it's only on my face for about a minute, it is not the most comforting sensation to rub oil all over your face.
With Bioderma, it's so .... clean feeling. Before and during application. It feels so light when applied to the face, and it's quite miraculous how much make up it removes! You don't have to go back to an area twice to remove excess, one swipe get's it all. Once completed with the face and neck, your skin looks clean, and feels extremely comfortable and hydrated. I have semi sensitive skin, and I can vouch that it is extremely suitable. There is no hard pressing or rubbing, it's just effortless swipes.
I have tried to use this on my hands instead of a cotton round, like a cleaning oil, and think you get the maximum removal properties via the cotton round.
This does remove waterproof eye make up, but I do prefer to use another cotton round, as I don't want to have potential black marks on the rest of my face, as I swipe away.
In conclusion, if you have access to Bioderma, I would highly recommend you trying a bottle the next time you are in need of a make up remover. If it wasn't for the fact it was so heavy in it's bottle I personally would be scouring the Internet to make this home delivered every time I ran out, but shipping prices stop me.
If this was readily or even only semi readily available to me, I would say this is by far the best make up remover I have ever tried, and would consider this a complete HG in the category.
Bioderma, if you are listening, please do come on over the the United States! Thank you!
