While in Paris in November there was one thing on my ‘MUST BUY’ list and this was Bioderma. While I know that it can be bought in the UK, the mark up is ridiculous and I just couldn’t justify paying double the price. So, I stocked up in Paris.
And I’ve always had this vision of French women looking forever youthful – due to the amazing French beauty industry.
The Bioderma (Crealine) Sensibio H20 Cleanser is by far the best cleanser I have ever used. For years I have used Johnson’s baby wipes to remove my makeup but as I am now mid-twenties and a bride-to-be, I must make a conscious effort to really look after my skin.
I have been using Bioderma for two months now and the results are incredible. My skin feels super clean and refreshed after using it in the morning and evening. It gently cleanses, removes all trace of makeup and feels really light due to the micellar water base.
What’s more, although this could just be in my mind, I am almost certain that this cleanser has helped the acne scars on my cheek. Along with the effaclar.
If you suffer from sensitive skin, redness or skin irritation, I highly recommend this cleanser.
I managed to buy two large 500ml bottles for around £13 which is absolutely amazing and such good value for money considering it costs £14.50 for ONE BOTTLE in the UK! It also lasts a long time – I’ve used probably a third of one bottle in 2 months!
The second item I bought in Paris and fell in love with is the La Roche-Posay Effaclar A.I. Targeted Breakout Corrector. You can buy this in the UK from places like Boots and it costs £9.50.
I first heard of the brand La Roche-Posay on one of the A Model Recommends vlogs. And I coveted the brand for quite some time.
The La Roche-Posay Effaclar A.I. Targeted Breakout Corrector is my life saver. I’m not quite sure how I lived for 26 years without it. Seriously, if I had known about this brand when I suffered hideous acne as a teenager, I wouldn’t have wasted a ridiculous amount of money on the typical high street products.
I have been applying the effaclar to blemishes as soon as they appear and leave on over night. It helps to reduce redness and clears the blemish up within a day or two without leaving any scaring.
Furthermore, I have also been applying the effaclar to my acne scars and they have reduced a lot. Quite a lot. This makes me so happy!
I highly recommend these products; they’ll be a beauty staple of mine forever. Well, unless I find another magic potion.
