No matter what your skin type is, it should be treated like a fine piece of silk - with tender loving care!

The first step of a skincare routine, cleansing, is where many tend to treat the skin too harshly while still leaving traces of makeup and impurities which irritates the skin.

What you need is a gentle and effective makeup remover so your skin is clean, comfortable and able to rejuvenate while you sleep. We've found just the one that fits the bill!

Keep reading to find out more!

That very makeup remover is Bioderma Sensibio H2O! Bioderma is a French dermatological skincare brand that has skincare products that are formulated with teams of biologists and dermatologists. They are well known for their ultra-gentle skincare products that suits sensitive skin.

Bioderma Sensibio H2O micellar water is one of those ultra-gentle products that is suitable for even very sensitive and intolerant skin types. Prescribed by dermatologists and hailed as a holy-grail product by millions around the world, this micellar water has plenty of plus points to make it an essential in every lady's skincare routine.

Instead of foam or soap, Sensibio H2O contains tiny micelles which remove the impurities in your skin so you can simply wipe it away gently without having to scrub your face. It contains fatty acid esters which naturally helps rebuild the skin's protective hydrolipidic film. After cleansing, your skin is strengthened and less prone to common sensitive skin reactions such as stinging, itching and heating.

Don't be fooled by its gentle formula, this micellar water is extremely effective at removing all traces of makeup and pollutants. It can even remove pollutant particles PM 2.5 to PM 1* and heavy metals!

Although Sensibio H2O is known by many as a makeup remover, it's actually a water-based cleanser. ✨ Celebrity makeup artists including Lisa Eldridge and Beau Nelson fell in love with it and used it on models for fashion shows and photoshoots. While many makeup removers will leave the models' faces red and sensitive after repeated makeup application and removal, Sensibio H2O is incredibly gentle on their skin! And so, it became well known as a makeup remover.

Besides the Sensibio range for sensitive skin, Bioderma also has two other ranges of micellar waters for other skin types.

For dehydrated skin: Bioderma Hydrabio H2O

If your skin is dehydrated, you'll be all too familiar with skin woes like tightness and dullness. Besides applying moisturiser and face masks, the cleansing stage is also where you should hydrate your skin!

Bioderma Hydrabio H2O is formulated with Aquagenium™ patent that trains skin to rehydrate itself. The active ingredients in this patent reactivate the skin's natural hydration process and boosts water circulation within cells. After using this micellar water, your dehydrated skin will regain its original radiance and comfort level over time. ?

For oily, acne-prone skin: Bioderma Sebium H2O

If you have acne-prone skin, you might reach for cleansers that remove all the oils on your skin to feel dry and squeaky clean. Although such harsh cleansers seem like it will make your skin cleaner, they will actually cause breakouts! By stripping away the skin's natural moisture, it makes the skin vulnerable and produce more oil to compensate, leading to clogged pores and breakouts.

Put down your harsh cleansers and pick up Bioderma Sébium H2O instead! Sébium H2O is a micellar water formulated for oily, acne-prone skin. It gently purifies oily, acne-prone skin as it cleanses and removes away makeup, dirt and impurities without drying out your skin. On top of regulating sebum production, it also has a mattifying effect, leaving skin feeling comfortable and refreshed after every use. When cleansing your skin with Sebium H2O, make sure to avoid your eyes and lips as these areas have thinner skin and does not produce oil glands.
