Hello and happy 2017! Today I have a review courtesy of Samplestore and Bioderma, on the new Sensibio range of products. If you have sensitive skin, then heads up this post is for you.

About the products:

Sensibio H20: Bioderma Sensibio H2O contains unique biomimetic molecules* that are biologically compatible with your skin, offering gentle yet powerful cleansing and makeup removing efficacy. This innovative non-rinse formula has unique restorative properties that ensures skin feels soft and comfortable post-cleansing. Can be used as cleanser and/or makeup remover over face, eyes and lips .
One bottle is sold worldwide every three seconds. Soap, alcohol- and fragrance-free, this non-rinse cleanser refreshes, soothes and preps the skin for subsequent skincare. The product is also formulated with highly purified water – water that is completely free of impurities
and irritants for pharmaceutical use.
To complement this wonder water, Bioderma has created 2 new products which helps promote at-home skincare regiment for sensitive skin.
The Bioderma Sensibio Gel Moussant is a gentle foaming gel with lipid-restoring properties that hydrates and calms sensitive skin, while the Bioderma Sensibio Dermatological Water is a face and body soothing spray made of highly purified water enhanced with an ideal balance of minerals that calms skin while maintaining healthy skin cells.

First up, the cleansing water. I love cleansing water above all other types of removers (oil, gels, you name it). Being the first time user of Bioderma, I wanted to see the efficacy of removing makeup.
What was on my arm: waterproof eyeliner, lipstick, foundation
How many cotton swabs it took to remove all the make up? – 2! My eyeliner is notoriously hard to remove, so when the result yielded from 1 cotton pad was a 95% removal, I was pleasantly surprised. It took another cotton pad to remove the remnants. The lipstick and foundation were removed within the first cotton pad. Impressive!
Experience: After removing all the makeup, I ran a clean cotton pad soaked in the H20 to double cleanse. After that was done, I felt that my skin was refreshed and did not feel sticky or oily. The packaging’s flip top cover allowed me to dispense as much product as I needed, with minimal wastage. And, it helps that the bottle is transparent so I can see how much liquid is left.
Price: SGD$15.90 for 100ml, SGD$28.90 for 250ml, SGD$41.90 for 500ml
Next up, the gel moussant. Have I talked about the colour theme? I like how each product has it’s own bit of pink. The foaming cleanser comes in a translucent pump bottle, and likewise allows you to see how much product you’ve used.
This is how the actual cleanser looks like:
Experience: The cleanser lathers well. After rinsing off, my face felt clean and still hydrated. Contrary to some other cleansers which leave your face feeling tight, I did not have the problem with the gel moussant. Love it. ❤
Price: SGD $39.90 for 200ml
Lastly, the dermatological water. I have previously used face/body sprays before, this is the first time I’m using Bioderma’s. The water comes in a pressurized canister and with a squeeze of the nozzle a fine mist emits.
I stash this away in my bag (it’s quite a big can to bring around), but because of the relief it provides from our recent scorching weather, I have no complaints. A spritz of this and I feel refreshed. Instant relief, if you ask me.
Price: SGD$19.90 for 150ml
Overall I find that the Bioderma Sensibo range of products work well for sensitive skin, and are (get ready for this):
- paraben free
- soap free
- alcohol free
- fragrance free
With such care into the formulation, it’s no wonder that Bioderma is the One cult favourite of top makeup artists, supermodels, and
