REVIEW: Bioderma Crealine H2O

If you haven't heard of the Bioderma Crealine H20 Cleansing Solution, then where have you been? It has taken the blogging world by storm and has been all over the place recently.

I first heard about it some time ago on the lovely Lisa Eldridge's channel but decided recently that I just had to try it after reading so many raving reviews.

Well, here's another!

Basically, this is a very gentle make-up remover which consists of oils held in water molecules. I've had this now for a few weeks and have used it everyday since and have fallen in love! I use it in the morning as a quick refresher- I'm very lazy you see and I really don't have a skincare routine in the mornings *slaps wrist* but I've found this to be a perfect wake-me up in the mornings. I then use it again in the evenings to take off my make-up before I do the whole cleanse,tone & moisturise.

I have normal to dry skin-it's mainly normal but I do suffer with the odd dry patch every now and then (like right now) and I've found that it works really well for me. I haven't had any issues with it drying out my skin or anything like that. I bought the fragrance free version (there are other versions available by Bioderma) which is perfect for me - I have been known to have reactions in the past to fragranced products.

I think the thing I love most about this is the simplicity of it all - it really does make taking my make-up off just so easy! And it's rather refreshing I find - a good wipe of this in the mornings and I'm ready to go!

Now, getting hold of this here in the UK is a little tricky-as you'll probably be aware, it's a french product and at present, is not available here. So, unless you're visiting France any time soon (and if you are, I'd recommend stocking up) then places like Ebay etc seem to be the obvious choice. I purchased mine via a website called Le Guide Sante and bought a duo pack (2x 500ml bottles). Including postage, it came to around £24, which works out about £12 per bottle - not bad when most places are around £16.

Have you tried this? What's your thoughts on it?


  1. after seeing so many reviews for this product I think I need to get it! Great review :)

  2. I need to try this! They need to make it more readily available in the UK though, I can't bring myself to buy it for £12-16 on eBay when it is so cheap in France!

    Totally agree - someone needs to start selling this here in the UK for the same price as they do in France! It is worth it though-I don't think I'd be using anything else now! XX
