[Review] Hi guys sorry for being away for so long! Hopefully Im picking up the pace while juggling housework and writing so thanks for being patient :) Caught up with some friends this week and Im so tired that I snooze immediately once my head hits the pillow! So this post has been really long overdue! Hope u enjoy the review & pics, though!
Bioderma Sensibio H20 Solution Micellaire Review
If I could choose one breakthrough product of the year .. then it would be the range of Bioderma makeup removers with Micellaire water that has been making appearances in many international and local beauty blogs.

What's Micellar waters?
Micellar waters (French pronunciation "me-sellaire") originated in France and are non-rinse, soap-free cleansing waters that contain micelle molecules. Micelles are molecules that are made of fatty-acid esters,” explains Bernard Pochic, Montreal-based national trainer for Bioderma, whose micelles are of natural origin and are extracted from sugar. “When you use a cleansing pad, the micelles deploy,” he says. The composition of the molecules makes them brilliant at trapping and gobbling up makeup, dust and pollution.  -- source 
I have been using the Bioderma Sensibio (also sold under the name Bioderma Crealine but they are both essentially the same product) when I first got my eyelash extensions and I didnt want to use oil makeup removers (they tend to loosen eyelash extensions over time) to remove my daily makeup. I bought my first bottle in a Japanese healthstore and have fallen in love with the gentle hypoallergenic formula ever since! So when Bioderma (Thanks Chloe from the PR People!) kindly sent some of their best-sellers my way, I was ecstatic to try the rest of the range out! 
Bioderma Sensibio H20 Solution Micellaire 
The Bioderma Sensibio H20 Solution Micellaire effectively micro-emulsify impurities while maintaining the skin’s balance (soap-free, physiological pH). Soothing and decongesting active ingredients prevent the feelings of irritation often caused by cleansing.
The Test
The star product in Bioderma is a five-star crowd pleaser, being suitable for almost everyone. Its especially suitable for sensitive skin because it has both a patented natural complex and a soothing cucumber extract to ensure skin's natural pH.
For this test, I will be using makeup's most common items and Bioderma Sensibio H20 Solution Micellaire to remove them.
Soak a cotton pad with Sensibio H2O and cleanse the face and eyes and/or remove any make-up.
Repeat the application until the cotton pad remains clean.
 Sensibio H2O needs no rinsing, but it is essential to dry your skin.
Sensibio H2O can be used daily, morning and evening
Simply soak a cotton pad with Sensibio H2O 
After ONE swipe
As you can clearly see in the results below, most of the makeup have been effectively removed easily, even the foundation, bb cream and concealor. The only residue left was from my waterproof mascara and gel eyeliner.
I continued by soaking the residue with my cotton pad. Most of the waterproof mascara and almost all of the gel liner came off easily but I could still some faint residue.
Once again, I left the cotton pad on my skin for a few more seconds and exerted some light pressure by rubbing it slightly.
The Results 
As clearly demonstrated, all the waterproof mascara came off after some effort with minimal effort and no irritation.
Overall Review : I have sensitive skin so the Bioderma Sensibio H20 Solution Micellaire makeup remover has always been kind to my skin without causing any irritations or breakouts. Yes, as it is such a gentle formula, you might have some difficulty with extremely stubborn waterproof eye makeup but with some patience, the Bioderma Sensibio H20 Solution Micellaire works just as well. This formula is fragrance-free formula, alcohol-free and contains no phenoxyethanol (a chemical preservative) and is perfect as a daily cleanser for sensitive skins like mine. Even though there is no need to double cleanse, (I often do as I prefer to use a foaming facial wash after makeup removal) even though the Bioderma Sensibio H20 never leaves a sticky-after feel which I love. I will definitely re-purchase this item, its easily one of my favorite skincare products of 2014! The only downside of this product is the relatively higher price as compared to most drugstores brands and as the test results (above) showed, it might not be the most effective makeup remover for heavy-duty waterproof makeup but all in all, still a great daily makeup remover for most skin types.
Proprieties : $15.90 for 100ml, $29.90 for 250ml and $39.90 for 500ml
Fragrance-free formula.
Alcohol-free. No phenoxyethanol
The HydraBio, Sebium and ABCDerm H20 Solution Micellaire Range
I'll be making short introductions to the rest of the range from Bioderma :)
Hydrabio H2O Solution Micellaire 
The first moisturising micelle solution with Aquagenium® for sensitive and dehydrated skins.
For dehydrated skin, there is the Hydrabio H2O which is slightly different from Sensibo as this is a fragrance formula (the Sensibo is non-fragrance). I tried it out and the scent is light and refreshing which reminds me of the sea. The formula worked just as well to remove my makeup and my skin did feel slightly hydrated after use.
Properties : $29.90 for 250 ml bottle
Non-comedogenic - Hypoallergenic
Sebium H2O Solution Micellaire 
A BIODERMA innovation, Sébium H2O gently cleanses oil-prone skin without drying it, through the micro-emulsion of impurities and excess sebum. Enriched with purifying active ingredients, Sébium H2O cleanses the epidermis in depth and regulates secretion of sebum. The patented sebo-correcting complex, Fluidactiv®, normalises sebum quality.
Oily skins girls heave a sigh of relief with the Sebium H2O! Perfect our tropical climate where we tend to suffer from excess sebum and diluted pores, the Sebium uses copper sulphate and zinc gulconate to purify and regulate oil production without drying skin. This formula has a fresh scent.
Properties : $15.90 for 100ml, $29.90 for 250ml and $39.90 for 500ml
Fragranced formula.
Non-comedogenic, alcohol-free, no colorant.
BIODERMA ABCDerm H2O Solution Micellaire 
Discover ABCDerm, the micelle solution that gently cleanses the delicate young children and baby skin. Specially formulated for the delicate baby skin, ABCDerm H2O micelle solution gentle cleanses the bottom, skin folds, face and hands.
I love how thoughtful Bioderma is! I dun have kids, but this formula is perfect for mommies to use as a daily cleanser for baby's delicate skin especially around the diaper area. It leaves no residue or oily film and comes in a convenient 100 ml (as shown in picture) for travel, or in a bigger bottle 500ml which is more cost-effective.
Properties : $15.90 for 100ml, $39.90 for 500ml 
Hypoallergenic, paraben-free, soap-free and alcohol-free.
