Bioderma Sensibio H2O, Cleansing Milk 3-in-1 & Tolerance Plus: Review
I've heard high praises for the Bioderma Sensibio line for quite some years now and earlier this year, I started using a few of the products from the line, including the legendary Sensibio H2O Make-up Removing Micelle Solution ($30 CAD for 500ml). To read some of my thoughts on these products, click.......
Bioderma Sensibio H2O Make-up Removing Micelle Solution ($30 CAD for 500ml):
A cleansing water with a weightless formulation, this makeup remover takes off pretty much all traces of makeup, with the exception of waterproof mascara and waterproof eye liners. I love how gentle yet effective it is. The product leaves behind no stickiness on the skin; it actually makes skin feel more supple and refreshed. The Sensibio H2O is perfect for dipping a Q-tip into to remove any makeup mistakes. It's also great at pre-removing face makeup at the end of the day before washing the face.

Bioderma Sensibio Cleansing Milk 3-in-1 ($19 CAD for 250ml):
If you are looking for something that will take off everything, try the Cleansing Milk 3-in-1 makeup remover. This one has a slightly viscous, creamy texture that should be applied on dry skin. I find that not only does this remove foundation and face makeup, it even removes my waterproof mascara!
Unlike the Sensibio H2O though, this isn't great for spot correction as the product doesn't wipe off as easily and cleanly as the Sensibio H2O.

Bioderma Sensibio Tolerance Plus Moisturizer ($27 CAD):
A lightweight moisturizer designed for sensitive skin, this product is not only gentle on the skin, but it also promises to improve the skin's tolerance threshold. Fragrance-free, paraben-free, preservative-free, and hypoallergenic (just like the rest of the Sensibio line), the Tolerance Plus is super gentle on even the most sensitive skin.
I have oily skin that's not very sensitive. I found the texture of this to be super lightweight and smooth, but it did cause my skin to look a bit greasy. So if you have sensitive dry skin, I'd recommend giving this a try, but if you have combination to oily skin, this is definitely more of a nighttime moisturizer.
Sensibio Tolerance Plus
This line is pretty impressive! I like the fact that everything is hypoallergenic and oh so gentle on the skin. The Sensibio Tolerance Plus makes my skin a bit shiny looking but both the Cleansing Milk and the H2O makeup removers are excellent. The Sensibio H2O is great for spot correction during makeup application and the Cleansing Milk is great for removing everything at the end of the day.

Bioderma is available online and in stores at London Drugs, Shoppers, and various drugstores across Canada.
