Two things I’ve been loving recently: Bioderma being available in a Pharmacy less than 10 minutes from where I live (making those “Sh**, I’ve run out of Bioderma” moments a thing of the past) and discovering the bargain that is the L’Oreal Gentle Makeup Remover for Eyes (late to the bandwagon on this one, I know).
Instead of opting for my usual red capped Bioderma that tends to sensitive skin, I opted for it’s blue capped counterpart which is geared towards dry and sensitive skins – pretty much sums me up. It has a clean non offensive smell and its slightly less drying on my skin than the regular version. I like.
The L’Oreal makeup remover has been dubbed as the budget version of the Clarins Instant Eye Makeup Remover. After reading countless lack-lustre reviews on their Micellaire Solution I was prepared to be unimpressed. For me it sits somewhere in between Clarins and Bioderma as it definitely doesn’t pack the strength to budge waterproof mascara, but most importantly it’s gentle. I always end up feeling like my eyes are being burnt off with budget options, so this one was a pleasant surprise. And at £4, what’s not to like?
