Like William the Conquer in 1066, the almighty French brand that is Bioderma is hitting our shores this spring, so instead of making a 70 metre long tapestry to celebrate I though I'd review the famed, and loved Crealine H20 make-up remover!
When my parents told me they were setting off for a romantic getaway to Paris, I begged them to pick me up a bottle of this beloved beauty staple. Although already available on websites such as amazon, the price tag in it's native country is a fraction of the price (my parents paid around 15€ for a 500ml bottle, thanks parents!!) and I have used it more or less everyday since. This product feels like water, smells of nothing, but gets all of your make-up off. I mean all of it. It is only since using Bioderma that I have realised how I never really used to get all my make-up off, and now my skin is much clearer than it used to be. This stuff is great for both eye and face make-up, getting rid of all traces, it leaves your face feeling nice and refreshed which is something I love after a day (or night) with a face full of make-up (rubbing my eyes after a day of not being able to is the best feeling in the world!) As I mentioned before I've been using this every day (somedays more than once!) for over a month and I've barely used any, and can see this bottle alone lasting me around 6 months, which I think is fantastic for a make-up remover (that works out to 2.50€ a month!!) which I think is very reasonable indeed! (Although I believe the conversion rate is a little whacky with the 250ml bottles pricing at around £10) I guess if I had to say was a flaw with the product it's the size of the bottle meaning it's a bit of a pain to travel with, although I know you can get a range of sizes to suit every situation so I just need to get me a travel sized one!!
I think this product is a must-have staple for every single girl, especially those having issues with clogged up skin. I got the standard formulation, but I've heard the Sebium formulation is better tailored to oily skin, so who knows maybe I'll be even more impressed when I finish up this bottle and try out that one! I'm sure shops will have scenes like those from the Battle of Hastings fighting to get their hands on this cult product, and I won't blame you for battling for your own bottle, and with other products from the brand on my very long 'to buy' list such as the Sebium cleasing gel, I may well be joining you! Bioderma should be available in leading pharmacies soon and is available on Escentual.com now.
