If you haven’t heard of Bioderma, chances are you’ve been living under a rock. Between YouTube videos and blog posts, nearly every beauty guru and their granny have talked about the Micellar Solution.
It’s not available in Ireland, so after hearing about it for the 15678th time, I decided to pick a bottle up on Escentual. It was pretty affordable, at around €12, and has lasted quite well considering I got it just three weeks ago.
Although I really like the product, I can’t help but think to myself, “Is it worth the hype?”
With a huge range of cleansers available to buy in Boots, it would take something pretty special to make me order online each time I needed a new cleanser.
The product itself is like a water, with little to no fragrance and is very gentle on the skin. It isn’t oily or harsh, and works effectively at removing the bulk of your makeup, including mascara. I’ve been using it in the morning on a cotton pad to cleanse my skin, and at night to remove the heaviest of my makeup.
My skin is blemish prone, and while I don’t think that Bioderma has worsened the condition of my skin, I can’t say that it has helped it to improve.
I love how it’s free of strong fragrance, and doesn’t strip the skin, but to be honest I amn’t blown away by the product.
The idea of a Micellar solution is fantastic, but with many more such as Garnier and L’Oreal available on the market I wouldn’t have my heart set on purchasing Bioderma again.
I’ve really enjoyed using it, and have had no problems with it, but considering the amount of hype it has gotten I was slightly disappointed.
Although I’ll continue to use it, and repurchase the product itself or other Micellar solutions again, I honestly don’t think that the product is worth all of the hype.
So if you’re interested in picking up a Micellar solution and Bioderma is available, I’d recommend giving it a try. But if you’re happy enough with your skincare routine as it is, I really don’t think the purchase is necessary.
Have you tried Bioderma before? Did you think it was worth the hype?
