Almost a year ago I walked into the drugstore looking for a beauty pick-me-up after a rough day. I came out with a rather unconventional item considering those circumstances – makeup remover. Since then I have been preaching to anyone who will listen about how great The Bioderma Sensibio H2O makeup remover and cleanser is (but seriously, you need it in your makeup bag ASAP.)
When I walked into the store I vaguely remembered hearing about it from a couple different sources – including Fashion Toast’s own Rumi Neely. However when the salesgirl drew all over her hand in ballpoint pen, put two drops on a cotton pad and removed all the markings in one fell swoop, I was sold. A little goes a long way with this stuff, but what’s even better is how gentle it is. In fact, that’s my favourite part about it – when I’m using this remover it feels like I’m washing my face with bottled water rather than some formula concocted to remove even the most stubborn of makeup. My face is left feeling fresh, rather than the oily residue I have occasionally experienced with other makeup removers.
The standard 250mL bottle runs for $23 CAD, but if you’re just looking to try it out, there’s also a travel-sized 100 mL bottle for $7 CAD (both at Shopper’s Drug Mart).
