I first heard about Bioderma’s makeup remover about 3 or 4 years ago when I got really obsessed with YouTube. Zoella was raving all about it on her YouTube channel after a trip to Paris. It was then that I knew – I HAD TO GET MY HANDS ON IT. I got my first travel-sized bottle from a small pharmacy in Paris when I was there on holiday in 2014. After trying it with Sandra back in London, we realized, “Oh shit, it’s amazing. We should have gotten the bigger bottle”. Typical of us – only trying the things we bought after leaving the country of origin. HAHAHA! To cut a long story short, we found out that Pestle and Mortar on High Street Kensington was selling them and were both quite overjoyed, to say the least.

I have been using this makeup remover ever since, hoarding bottles of it whenever I travel. So far, I have found it in Singapore, Japan, and Korea. What I love about it is the fact that you just need a few squirts of the good stuff on a cotton pad, and all your makeup comes off (refer to cotton pad above). This is, of course, relative to how much makeup you use – I have concealer, foundation, eyebrow pencil, eye shadow and liner – and I only need one cotton pad to remove all my makeup. This remover leaves my skin feeling super fresh after each use and it’s totally not drying.

Prior to this, I tried the cleansing oil from Shu Uemura, and while I love it, it often made my skin feel very oily and heavy after. So that didn’t last very long. I also tried makeup remover wipes and those are honestly quite icky. Don’t like them at all, and it felt abrasive on my skin. Like, imagine taking a fork and scratching your eyelids. It might be an over exaggeration but you get my point.

In the last few months, I saw that several places have been selling this product in Malaysia. From Hermo to drugstores like Guardian. So if you ever have the chance to try this out, I highly recommend it. Unfortunately, everything in Malaysia is pretty expensive. So, you’ve got to be willing to spend a little extra for a bottle. The travel-sized one was about RM45 when I saw it at Guardian the other day, slightly on the high end. But in my opinion, absolutely worth it!

    I’ve always wanted to try this! Apparently the Garnier Micellar Water is a dupe for this, have you tried it?x

      I know about the Garnier one but never tried it honestly because there’s no reason to. So far, I’ve been very happy with Bioderma also because removing eye makeup has been a breeze. No stinging whatsoever. Feels very much like water that removes make up. You should definitely try it out if you get the chance!
