Review: Bioderma Sensibio H2O Make Up Removing Micelle Solution


Removing make up was always a task that i dreaded.Getting products like micellar water or even make up removing wipes was a dream.. So yes, i avoided application of make up! It was that simple for me 😬.  Anyways, the beauty,make up and skincare industry has literally grown by leaps and bounds; and I love it ☺️.
My make up removing routine earlier was : use a facial cleanser, followed by a drop of face scrub and get my skin squeaky clean; use a cotton pad and cleansing milk and again clean my face of any remnants. So yes, this was a messy affair especially with the kohl! You all know what I mean 🙄.

At present my life is simpler with these amazing products in ma hands that just destroy every single molecule of product on ma face and make it make up free in minutes!!! 

I have used the Kaya Make Up Remover as well as a Make up removing Oil from Biotique. I had heard of the Bioderma Micellar Water and wanted to see which fares better than the other (which i will be sharing soon in another blog ).

I got the product via Amazon and you can get the product on Nykaa at some amazing deals as well. 

About The Product:

Price: ₹ 945 for 250ml & ₹660 for 100ml

Quantity: available in 250ml and 100ml bottles

Shelf life: 3 years

Fragrance: free of fragrance 

Form:  Liquid form (water)

Packaging:


The product comes in a simple transparent plastic bottle with a pink fliptop cap which makes it convenient to pour the required amount of product. The details about the product, the brand, the pricing and instructions are mentioned on the bottle. 

What the product claims:


Bioderma Sensibio H2O gently cleanses and removes makeup from the face and eyes. The micelles contained in the formula ensure impurities are removed while respecting the cutaneous balance. Soothing active ingredients help prevent feelings of irritation often associated with cleansing. The patented natural Dermatological Advanced Formulation complex raises the skin’s tolerance threshold. Excellent cutaneous and ocular tolerance.

My Experience on Bioderma Sensibio H2O:

I absolutely love this product! All I can say is it effectively removes all the make up from my face and the skin feels clean and fresh post using this micellar water. You may need 2-3 cotton pads dabbed in this water if you have heavy make up on your face, but if you have just a bb/cc cream, a lipstick, eyeliner and kohl 1cotton pad is enough. I use an additional one to ensure I have no make up left on my face.

It is an amazing product and a must have product in every womans make up kit.  Recently there have been new launches of micelle water by Loreal and Maybelline. I have listed down different brands available in the market along with the prices:

  1. Maybelline New York Micellar, ₹399 for 95ml
  2. Loreal Paris Micellar Water, ₹475 for 95ml
  3. Avene Micellar Lotion Cleanser & Make-up Remover, ₹1200 for 200ml
  4. Vichy Purete Thermale 3 in 1 One Step Cleansing Micellar Solution, ₹1050 for 200ml
  5. Thalgo Micellar Cleansing Water, ₹2530 for 200ml 

Pros of Bioderma Sensibio H2O:

  1. It is gentle on the skin and eyes
  2. It causes no irritation
  3. Hypoallergenic
  4. It is suitable for sensitive skin
  5. It is paraben free
  6. Travel friendly bottle which doesnt cause product leakage.
  7. 100ml bottle is available which is quite easy to carry on travel trips
  8. Simple yet good packaging
  9. If you are not a person who wears make up everyday,the product would last you a year
  10. Affordable 
  11. Can be purchased easily online

Cons of Bioderma Sensibio H2O:

  1. The waterproof eyeliners are a bit tough to get rid off using this product, although the rest of the make up gets off in seconds. 

My Rating: 4.9/5

In short the product is a must have in every make up artists kit or even a person who does her/his make up once in a while! 

Hope the review helps you out!!!

Review: Juicy Chemistry Rose, Almond & Shea Body Scrub (For Dry & Tanned Skin)

IMG_3687.PNG

I purchased this body scrub as I was traveling to my hometown where the climate is hot and humid most of the time, and I end up with a tan despite all the necessary care taken to avoid a tan. I came across this product on Nykaa and since I had heard and read about the brand and its product offerings, I decided to give it a try. Since it’s 100% natural, it was a safe bet for me. Also i don’t have any kind of allergic reaction to any of the ingredients mentioned.

About the Brand Juicy Chemistry:

Juicy Chemistry was co-founded by Pritesh & Megha Asher in 2014, with a goal to provide effective skin care products formulated with the purest and the most nutrient rich ingredients the nature has to offer.

At Juicy Chemistry, by selecting the finest natural ingredients, they harness the power within them to boost the vitality of this most precious and sensitive organ. The idea being, if it’s good enough to eat; it’s good enough to go on your skin.

They bring you the right mix of foods to nourish your skin by embracing the simple yet effective properties of the ingredients. Produce obtained in its purest form, without any preservatives, additives, synthetic oils, or perfumes is at the heart of Juicy Chemistry.

As rightly said by Megha – “When we say its natural it is natural. Going chemical free should not be a matter of choice; it should be a way of life!”

About The Product – Juicy Chemistry Rose, Almond & Shea Body Scrub:

Price: Rs.550

Quantity: 75gm

Shelf Life: 6 months

Fragrance: Strong scent of rose with a hint of almond oil fragrance

Consistency/Texture: Quite granular unlike the synthetic scrubs

My Take On The Product:
When the package arrived, I opened it to find more than just a scrub! They had also sent a spoon to scoop out product and a Natural Loofa (I havent clicked pictures of the Loofa but can google up one and attach it for reference). So it was a surprise for me!!

I use the scrub every alternate day, at night while I shower. I use it on the areas like my arms, feet and neck, that are prone to maximum tan.

On using the product, one can immediately see a difference in the skin. The scrub exfoliates the skin, thereby getting rid of the dead skin cells. Also , the tan is reduced in the first scrub itself. The skin appears to be brighter post the scrub. The Cocoa Butter and Shea Butter moisturise the skin and I don’t have to use a moisturiser on the areas that i use this scrub.

It also leaves behind a mild rose fragrance on the skin which I love 🙂

Pros:

  • I love the fragrance. The scent of rose is overpowering but in a good way.
  • No need to use a moisturiser post using the scrub.
  • Immediately brightens the skin.
  • It is good not only for tanned skin but for dry skin as well, as it doesn’t dry out the skin unlike other scrubs.
  • It is 100% Natural.
  • Isn’t tested on animals.
  • Comes in recyclable jars.
  • No artificial colours/preservatives.
  • The jar is a travel friendly size.

Cons:

  • The Product is a little expensive for 75 gm.

 

My Rating: 4.5/5 

Would I Recommend the Product to Others?

Yes! It is a little expensive , but it comes a long way. As it has to be used on tanned areas or dry areas. And yes, we pay a bomb for products which are made using chemicals / synthetic fragrances etc. So , why not pay for a product that is 100 % natural? It is worth the money and safe for your skin too!!!

Hope this review helps you !!
