So you may have heard about Micellar Waters and their ability to take off all of the makeup including hard-to-remove mascaras. I was skeptical for a long time, because I have used the l’occitane and the Avene Micellar waters when they first came on the market, I have to say that they barely took any of the foundation off.
So I was disappointed at the time until I heard all the raves about a French brand called Bioderma. This was apparently the brand that models used to take of their makeup and one product in particular which made the brand famous-Bioderma Micellar water. I continued to be skeptical about it, untill I saw the big brands suchas Garnier, Loreal and Nivea come out with their own versions of Micellar water.
So, on that note I thought, if the big guys are copying the small French brand, then it must be something to try and so I have. You can get Bioderma Micellar water for sensitive and dry skin, this is the type I got, off the http://www.strawberrynet.com. It is pretty expensive, about 23 USD for 250 ML….and considering that you need to use quite a bit of product I was looking for a very good substitute.
In short I will say that Bioderma Micellar water does take off all your make up, but the Garnier copy does it even better and at under 10 Swiss Francs or 5 pounds for a generous 400ML bottle, the water is refreshing and hydrating and also smells like roses, which is a nice little bonus.
In my video I do a demo comparison where I take off half of my heavy face makeup with Bioderma and half with Garnier.
I personally will not be re-purchasing Bioderma because I now prefer and use Garnier and would recommend you guys not to waste money on more expensive Micellar waters than the Ganier one…because it does the job done.
Cool tip: shake the bottle before use to see lite transparent bubbles for the most effective makeup removal.
