It's such a fantastic product that really helps me clearing my acne and it works wonder with my skin texture. I still get some acnes during the time of the month, but this totally helps clearing 'em quicker compares to other acne treatment I used in the past. There's a slight stinging sensation if your pimples just popped, but it's totally normal.
Suffice to say, this one has become a staple in my skincare routine that totally deserves HG status for me.
**Bioderma** micellar water made me firmly believed that not all micellar waters are made equally.
I used **Garnier micellar water** (pink cap) before I switched to **Bioderma Hydrabio** for good. Garnier micellar water did a good job on removing makeup (with more budget-friendly option), but Hydrabio did far more effective and gentle on skin.
This is my ride or die, and I highly recommended it to everyone. I also tried the Sensibio ones (the red cap) which formulated for sensitive skin, but I personally prefer this one.
I learned the hard way that Ethylhexyl Palmitate was no friend of mine. While the balm did a great job of removing makeup and sunscreen and left my skin look and feel clean, the Ethylhexyl Palmitate (which its first ingredient) broke my skin terribly.
I had to switch to **Banila Co. Clean It Zero** (the pink one, before the 2018 reformulation) and that one actually did better job (and kinder to wallet). ymmv
I bought **I’m From Vitamin Tree Water-Gel** a few months ago in my attempt to find replacement for my HG moisturiser **Innisfree green tea fresh cream** (*which had been discontinued this year, sobs*). The moisturizer came in a clear-glass jar with a tiny spatula to scoop out the water-gel. It has watery gel texture, and easily absorbed into skin which actually made my skin feel very soft and plump after application.
HOWEVER, within a week of using the moisturizer (after initial 3-day of patch testing) - I started to experience breakouts on my cheeks. I suspected it was the witch hazel leaf extract was the caused it. For the record, I tried Thayers witch hazel toner in the past, and it gave me similar ‘result’ : smooth-feeling skin but painful CCs after 1-2 week. After some googling-fu done, turned out that witch hazel could cause breakout for oily/acne prone skin. According to Paula’s Choice : "*most of the witch hazel preparations contain between 14% and 15% alcohol, an amount that can significantly irritate skin. Even if you don’t see or feel that happening on the surface of skin, the irritation is still taking place, below the surface.*" (source: https://www.paulaschoice.com/expert-advice/skincare-advice/natural-skincare/is-witch-hazel-good-for-skin.html)
Still, YMMV. But people with oily or/and acne-prone skin should thread with caution. My suggestion is to do a longer period of patch-testing first before you fully committed of using the moisturiser.
This was my second oil cleanser that I used ever since I incorporated double-cleansing into my skincare routine over a year ago. It had been dubbed as one of holy grails products, so imagine my disappointment when it gave me tiny bumps on foreheads. I suspected it’s the Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil that caused the breakout. YMMV
I bought this **Ceramidin Cream** after some recommendations on Reddit forum. Unfortunately, it doesn't suit my oily face — the cream is a bit too thick and doesn't absorb well enough in my country's warm & humid weather. If anything, night application of this cream leaves my face even oilier in the next morning
overall its a good moisturizer but the texture is slightly greasy if you put too much , less is more is much better , however , it sinks into the skin after just a while and left the skin hydrated , it causes no breakout and is available at local pharmacies .
i have been purchasing m this for almost three times and been trying other cleanser at the same time but keep coming back to this , it is affordable and does the job really well. my skin does not feel tight but nicely cleansed. however i think that it needs to be followed by toner as i can see there is still minor dirt on cotton pad after using toner afterwards. overall , its a basic cleanser that does its job well .
