We all have those products that we can’t live without. For me, it is (or at least, it used to be) Bioderma. Bioderma is a makeup remover that is suitable for sensitive skin. I really like this product because it really removes all of your makeup — eyeliner, mascara, the whole deal.
I especially like Bioderma to remove every trace of foundation — sometimes a makeup wipe is not enough! I also like to use Bioderma in the morning after I wake up to remove the oils on my face that have somehow accumulated while sleeping.
Bioderma is great, but it is quite pricy. For a 250 mL bottle, you pay $21.95 CAD. For a product that I use daily and go through so quickly, that is a lot! Thankfully, I’ve found an alternative.
I recently picked up the L’Oreal Sublime Soft Gentle Micellar Solution. This product works exactly the same as Bioderma. The only difference that I was able to detect was the scent. The L’Oreal product has a bit of a funky scent (even though it claims to be scentless), whereas Bioderma truly is fragrance free.
I bought the L’Oreal solution from Walmart for $9.96 CAD. You do get less product than Bioderma (200 mL vs. 250 mL), but when you do the math, you are still paying less for the L’Oreal solution (5 cents per mL for the L’Oreal solution vs. 9 cents per mL for Bioderma). The difference is minimal, but for a product that I use everyday, the cost adds up.
I’m happy that I finally found an alternative to Bioderma. :) What do you use to remove your makeup?
