The daddy of makeup removers

For months now I have been using a makeup remover that is not only so gentle that it causes no discomfort to the eyes, but is also so effective that it removes eye makeup in one swipe.

It may come as no surprise to you that the said product is Bioderma Crealine H2O, which has been profusely talked and raved about by beauty bloggers and YouTubers!

While most makeup removers I've used in the past have been either too oily or too harsh, Bioderma Crealine H2O feels almost as pure as water, leaving no oily residue or dryness to the skin.

The only downsides to this product are that at this moment it is not available in the UK and I believe it is also quite difficult to find in the US, meaning online stores such as EBay are the only way to go. It is also slightly more expensive than other makeup removers - I payed about £15 for it (with shipping free) - however, it is a large bottle at 500ml and a little goes a long way. And the last (albeit strange) downside is that it tastes very bitter...and no I don't go around taste testing my skincare products...but when using this to take off any foundation around your mouth you can taste a bitter, face scrunching flavour if you lick your lips. For this reason, I always wash my face after using it or at least use a face wipe!

But none of these downsides detract from the fact that it is the best product I've ever used for removing makeup!

What is your holy grail makeup remover? Have you tried Bioderma Crealine H2O?


  1. I keep hearing about this, I really want to try it. Its such a shame that we have to buy it on ebay. I might have to save up for it though as it is quite expensive for a make up remover.

  2. I have actually never heard of this but your review might have just sold me a little ha-ha I always run out of makeup remover so maybe having a large bottle would help actually! Hmmm I might just have to havve a poke around on Ebay and remember to keep my mouth closed ha-ha!


  3. Lovely review, sounds fab!!

  4. Never tried this but I really want to now! Heard so many amazing things about it x

  5. I've never tried Bioderma even though it's available in Canada (but really expensive). I use Vichy Purete Thermale which is really similar, and I think you can get Vichy in the UK. I can't say I've tasted it though haha

  6. I use MAC Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover but I do want to try this one. I guess I just really have to check Ebay!

  7. I love this makeup remover so much! It's not very cheap, but I haven't found anything similar to this.
