The drugstore version of bioderma

Back at the beginning of 2013 i jumped on the bioderma bandwagon and purchased two 250ml bottles off ebay. At around 15 pounds for the pair they weren't cheap and after running out of one bottle, i decided to try and find a cheaper alternative. After seeing the L'oreal skin perfection micellar solution crop up on a number of blogs, i decided i'd give it a go. And i've never looked back.

The concept is the same as bioderma, a solution as gentle as water, which dissolves all makeup without leaving behind any residue on the skin. I find that it manages to dissolve all of my base makeup with ease, and on lighter eye make up days it does the job there too. On heavier eye makeup days it can struggle slightly with the last bit of mascara, but seeing as i always double cleanse anyway it doesn't bother me at all.
I do find however that this stings my eyes slightly more than bioderma if i get any in them, but thats me being over generous with product...That being said, it's suitable for sensitive skin and never ever stings sore or dry patches, rather it soothes the skin. 

All in all, i'd definitely recommend getting this over bioderma as it's much more affordable and does the exact same job.
