Review: BIODERMA 2015

IMG_1785fin

We are no strangers to the French skincare line, BIODERMA. Years ago I went to a training downtown Vancouver when their line was first being launched into the Cosmetic/Skincare company I work for. Since then we have been big fans of numerous products in their line. One of the benefits of working in Skincare and Cosmetics for so long is being privy to so many different products. There are literally hundreds of product choices and you become wise to what’s hype and what’s not. I have honestly never been disappointed after trying any of the Bioderma products.

One of the products that I have continuously used for years is Bioderma’s top-selling SENSIBIO H20 MICELLAR CLEANSING WATER*. It has become the #1 Micellar Water in Canada and they sell 1 every 3 seconds worldwide!

This micellar water is Fragrance, Alcohol and Paraben Free, as well as Hypoallergenic. It removes all makeup including water resistant eye makeup. It is safe for even the most sensitive skin and eyes. It’s so quick and easy which I love. The quicker the better ya know what I mean? You use a cotton pad with the micellar water on it, swipe over your face (and eyes), no rinsing and that’s it. Boom. You’re done. Face is clean.

Even though it totally takes off all eye makeup as well, I still prefer to use a separate eye makeup remover first. It’s mostly just a habit I refuse to change.

I highly recommend this product to clients and friends all of the time. We’ve actually written about this gem of a product previously on our blog, which you can read here.

Fun fact: BIODERMA’s Sensibio H20 Micellar Cleanser won Chatelaine Magazine’s Best Beauty 100 2014 Award as one of their favourite Makeup Removers.

ATODERM PERFUMED CREAM*

This is their 24hr moisturizing lightly scented body cream. It has moisturizing agents that bind water in the upper layers of the skin which keeps it from evaporating. It is Hypoallergenic, Non-comedogenic and Paraben Free. Completely safe for all skin types.

This cream is also available in a non-scented formula which I always recommend for babies and children. Because this cream has a light scent we preferred to use it during the night when we weren’t wearing any perfumes. Otherwise in the day we chose to use the unscented formula. Regardless of which formula you prefer this body cream definitely does have incredible hydration and is not greasy at all. It is especially great for the colder Winter months.

SENSIBIO H20 MAKE-UP REMOVING WIPES*

If you’re like us (no messin’ around, aka lazy) and like the micellar water then you will definitely love these wipes. I am all for anything that is great quality, affordable, and makes my life just a little bit easier. These wipes clean your face completely with a quick and easy swipe. Removes eye makeup also. Talk about easy peasy. They are great for all skin types, even the most sensitive. These wipes are excellent to throw into your bag for the gym and traveling.

A little tip I tell my clients/friends is to store the package upside down so the top wipes stay really moist.

We have made mention a time or 2 in previous posts regarding just how much we loooove our lip products. I’m talkin lip glosses, lipsticks, lip balms, lip glaze… we adore it all & have a serious problem. We both have dry lips ALL OF THE TIME! So we are very happy girls when we come across moisturizing lip products that honestly do what they’re supposed to do – Moisturize.

This ATODERM MOISTURIZING STICK* is highly nourishing with Shea Butter and restores dry, chapped lips immediately. It is Allergen and Paraben free, Hypoallergenic and has a delicious light raspberry scent.

The best thing? It actually does hydrate and you don’t feel the need to have to reapply it a million times throughout the day. This balm is one of Natasha’s favourite Bioderma products.
