Bioderma Crealine H20 Review

This has got to be the most talked about Make Up Remover in the beauty blogging world and probably renowned by all international make up artists. I first found out about Bioderma Crealine H20 on YouTube after watching a few beauty gurus rave about it. I also found out the famous Rae Morris (international make up artist for those who don't know - swear by this and was "not allowed anywhere near the models at Paris Fashion Week if she didn't have this make up remover" (sounds crazy to me...) 

Anywho, I see what the hype is all about and how wonderful this little bottle of a miracle water this is!

Bioderma Créaline H20 is a very gentle, fragrance-free micellar solution that cleanses impurities and removes make-up without affecting the skin’s natural balance. The ultra-gentle micelles help capture fatty molecules such as dirt, oil, and make-up, leaving sensitive and intolerant skin cleansed and soothed. For best use, soak a cotton pad with the solution and cleanse your face and eyes. No rinsing is required. It is Soap-free, fragrance-free, hypoallergenic.

To use this makeup remover you pop some onto a cotton pad and wipe all over your face. This solution feels lovely on your skin and you there's no extra step required.

For the eyes, it might take a little longer to remove but it's not irritating and messy-free! You just need a little bit more solution!

What I noticed with Bioderma Crealine is that it doesn't contain those oils that aid with the make up removal. I hate that gluggy oily feeling you get when you remove make up with those make up removers. You know what I'm talking about and you may own one of those! It feels like I just washed my face with water and my make up has been removed effortlessly as well! What made me convert to Crealine is not only it's effectiveness but how gentle it is as well.

The wonderful thing about this product is that it feels just like water and has no distinctive scent to it. Which is great for people who are sensitive. I believe it's created to suit sensitive skin in the first place anyways and also can be doubled up as an everyday toner despite it's wonderful qualities as a make up remover it contains moisturising ingredients (one such, being the micelles).

Lisa Eldridge, a famous British make up artist and also someone who I subscribe to on YouTube -  uses Bioderma Crealine as part of her make up removal process everyday on her skin! You can check out her video (here) check it out at 1:33. She has also mentioned Bioderma in one of her favourite skincare products as well (here) at 5:44.

Overall here are my thoughts on Bioderma in a nutshell...

  • Removes make up effortlessly without irritating the skin 
  • Scent and colour free and will cleanse your skin while cooling it.
  • Gentle to use everyday 
  • Great for all skin types (sensitive especially)
  • Great as an everyday toner as well 
  • Not widely avaliable in Australia (At the moment avaliable at Terry White Chemists in Syd & Melb)
  • Expensive (Comes at $39.95 for a 250ml in Australia)
  • There are cheaper alternatives but I don't think they really compare to Bioderma

Will I repurchase?! Maybe... since the price tag is a bit hefty but it is worth every single cent in the long run and also other than that I love it regardless!

You can find Bioderma Crealine H20 here in Australia at Terry White Chemists. For those who live in Sydney, I know Strathfield's Terry White Chemist (in Strathfield Plaza) stocks them as I'm a regular at Strathfield from time to time.

Also, you can hop onto the Cosmetiques De France Website (as they are the Australian Stockists for this brand) and purchase it from there. Just contact them and they can assist you in purchasing and sending out an order form! I believe someone said that it was free postage but you have to double check that. 

You can also check out SASA as I believe they stock this on their site for $32-33 for a 500ml bottle. But they always tend to be sold out and Bioderma have recently rebranded this from “Crealine” to “Sensibio” so if you’re after a bottle, make sure you look out for either name – they’re the same product.

Hope you found this review useful and let me know if you have used or heard about this product! I would love to hear what you have to say!

Love, J

  1. This is a must have for me, I pretty much don't use any other makeup remover for the eyes, unless I'm using facial towelettes or occasionally Neutrogena eye makeup remover. It's a shame that it's ridiculously overpriced though, as I'm pretty sure a 500mL bottle is 10 euros or something.

  2. Fabulous review!!! MUST HAVE NOW!!

  3. How about eye makeup? I've only used one makeup remover so far that does not irritate my eyes. Do you think it would be suited for it?

  4. Do you think this would be suited to remove eye makeup as well?

  5. Great review, I'm sold & thanks for all the locations!

  6. I still don't know how I feel about Bioderma - I don't hate it but I don't love it either, I am finishing my first, huge bottle and I think I will buy more if I see it somewhere on an offer but I will not cry when it finishes and I am left without it either ;) but of course - it's a very good product :)

    greetings from Istanbul!

  7. Thanks for sharing the wonderful post. I love Bioderma as much as you do. It is a must have cleansing essential in every girl's arsenal.
