It’s been a while but as promised in my previous blog ‘My beauty secret - micellaire solution’ (see May blogs) a few weeks ago, I tested a number of micellaire solutions that are available on the market. To quickly remind you, micellaire solution is a calming cleansing solution that works perfectly on sensitive skin. It soothes irritated and fragile skin, cleanses face, eyes and lips thoroughly without rubbing, and rinsing is not required. It usually removes water-resistant make-up, too.
Sensibio H2O by Bioderma is probably the most popular and ‘prescribed’ solution for sensitive skin. I heard make-up artists and beauticians raving about this product but is it actually worth all the attention? On the Bioderma website I read ‘at the cutting edge of innovation, …, the micelles contained in its formula effectively micro-emulsify impurities while maintaining the skin’s balance (soap-free, physiological pH).’ It all sounds so scientific but my verdict is: overpriced (£11 - £13 per 250ml). I have not noticed too much difference while using this product comparing to other micellaire solutions but the price. My score: 6.
Micellar Cleansing Water with 3 Roses by Nuxe is less popular here in the
Remember, cleanse, tone and moisturise, especially during the hot days in summer.
