The number one item on my shopping list in Paris was, believe it or not, Bioderma. I have read about it on countless blogs, and watched a zillion youtube videos on this ’miracle’ product.
I bought a double pack of Bioderma, which was the equivalent of about $20 U.S. That was a steal! I also snapped up a mini bottle, mostly for it’s cuteness factor.
The entire bottle is in French, and since I’m still working on that part I will spare you the translation. Basically, Bioderma is formulated for sensitive skin. It gently removes eye (waterproof included) and face makeup. It is free of soap and maintains your skin’s natural balance. Unlike so many other French products it is fragrance free.
I have used it under a variety of circumstances – long wearing, waterproof, etc. I was skeptical that it would remove my beloved ‘perversion‘ liner by Urban Decay. Without any struggles what so ever, it absolutely did. I put it on a Koh Gen Do or Shiseido cotton pad and swipe a few times. it breaks down the product like a dream. I can open my eyes without any irritation.
I would highly recommend that you try this. It is possible to find at several places in the states; the mark up is beyond ridic, though. After searching I found many to be priced $30-40, for only ONE bottle. It is not worth that much. I will repurchase the next time I’m in France.
