I'm back again and this time with a favourite brand of mine; Bioderma! Bioderma have just celebrated 1 year of being in Ireland and after all those of years of asking our friends to bring back our Bioderma favorites from France, it has being exciting to have it at our fingertips now in Ireland. The latest launch in Ireland is the Hydrabio range, formulated especially for dehydrated and sensitive skin.
The only micellar water I've used for the last year is Bioderma's Sensibio H2O it's a firm favourite and always on my top shelf. So now for those of us who have sensitive and dehydrated skin Bioderma Hydrabio H20 (RRP €11.50 250ml) is going to be perfect. At first I didn't see much of a difference between the two, until I got my mum to try it. My mum has the most sensitive skin of anyone I"ve ever met and is allergic to a lot of skincare products but this she could use. My mum didn't get on as well with the original one but for her sensitive skin the Hydrabio is the way to go, and her skin didn't feel tight or dry after. I found this to be gentler around my eyes so that was a big bonus and a big thumbs up!
I also got to trial the Hydrabio Gel-Crème (40ml RRP €18.50) a light and moisturising gel cream that leaves your skin silky smooth. This feels like it is aimed more for normal to combination skin and locks in the moisture for the whole day. It feels very refreshing to use due the consistency of the gel. At first you will be left with a tacky feel after use as this needs a tiny bit of time to sink in, but because of the glycerin it makes a fantastic base for your makeup, and helps make it last. The tube packaging is brilliant for travel and doesn't take up much room and no fear of it breaking. It also has a tube dispenser so no need to be opening up your product to the air and you can take as many pumps as you need out without worry. Heads up though, this does have a fragrance to it which I find unusual for a product aimed at sensitive skin, so it's something to keep in mind when considering this. I didn't have any issues in that regard and the scent doesn't linger.
