During my vacation in France, I purchased the Bioderma Crealine TS H2O Micelle Solution at a local French pharmacy that was filled with amazing beauty products. I already heard about this amazing cleanser via reviews on You Tube and knew it was for me when I spotted it in my mother-in-law's bathroom upon my arrival. It feels just like water and isn't greasy or oily. It really cleans your face well and even if you aren't wearing makeup, will remove traces of dirt (believe me I had dirt on my face after a day in Paris). The wonders of this little bottle is it's ability to remove makeup so well, especially eye makeup and mascara. I bought the 250 ml bottle and pre-treated wipes for the plane because I knew my husband would kill me if we carried a large bottle in our already full luggage. For the price in France, it is 8.5 Euros, about the equivalent of $10, so it's almost double the price in the US via Amazon ($19.84 for 250 ml). It is significantly cheaper if you get the larger 500 ml bottle in the US for $25. In any case, it's still very affordable in terms of beauty products. This product works for all skin types although they do have a blue colored cap/product line for sensitive skin. I can't seem to find that version on Amazon but I did get the pink capped one and it works perfectly on my sensitive skin.
While removing eye makeup, make sure to not rub your eyes. You will only be creating future wrinkles. Instead, let the product work for you. I love this video on makeup removal by Lisa Eldridge that shows how she removes her eye makeup with Bioderma by letting the product soak in the pads and set for a minute or so on eyes before she wipes it all away.
I do use my Clarins Gently Foaming Cleanser after I am finished using the Bioderma because I like the clean feeling of splashing water on my face and the softness in my skin I get from using my Clarins cleanser. But if you are in a rush, it's good to know that your skin is completely clean by just using Bioderma.
I hope to share more of my "French Beauty" finds in future posts here on Coquette. There are a lot more products I am trying out!
