Bioderma Micellar Water for cleaning the face at night.


Expensive ($15 USD for a bottle that lasts 2 months), but it’s the best thing for really sensitive skin. Gets rid of makeup without making rosacea worse or causing breakouts.

Hey! Just wanted to let you know that Automod has removed your submission because it contains an Amazon referral link, which we don’t allow in the sub. I’m 99% sure it’s just google’s referral, so it doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things, but I want to be thorough anyway!

Could you please edit the URL for the Bioderma Micellar Water (everything else looks fine!) so that everything from (and including) “tag=” is removed? Here’s the tag free link for an easy copy & paste: https://www.amazon.com/Bioderma-Sensibio-Soothing-Micellar-Cleansing/dp/B002XZLAWM/

If you’ve done that, please reply to this message so I can approve your submission, or you can make a new one with the updated amazon link! Whatever works 😀

Product name: Bioderma Sensibio H2O

Product type: Micellar water

Price (range): ~$15 for 500ml, Amazon

Country of purchase: USA

Skin info: Normal, Fitzpatrick 2, very mildly PD/eczema/rosacea-prone

Ingredient list: Water (aqua), Peg-6 Caprylic/capric Glycerides, Cucumis Sativus (cucumber) Fruit Extract, Mannitol, Xylitol, Rhamnose, Fructooligosaccharides, Propylene Glycol, Disodium Edta, Cetrimonium Bromide

Special info: fragrance-free, alcohol-free, paraben-free, hypoallergenic, FA safe

Experience & opinion: Started using this about a year ago as well, and I really like it. I normally only use it as a first cleanser on a cotton round to remove sunscreen and minimal makeup, followed up with Vanicream Gentle Cleanser. Occasionally I’ll use it as a mid-day cleanse if I’ve gone to the gym, following up with a water rinse.

It seems a little pricy, but lasts about four months using it once a day, or longer since I’ve gotten lazy and stopped using it nightly.

It’s gentle, effective, and doesn’t break me out. Would recommend.

Borrowing this routine from my parents who I’ve seen have been doing doing their skincare ever since I was born, and I’m 21.

Cleanser isn’t necessary unless you think you need it, of course if youre wearing makeup its best to use cleanser to remove it. Use Bioderma to get rid of most makeup and wash with just water and put on a moisutrizer. One that holds in and locks your moisture. (I’ve never seen my parents use actual cleansers, they just use water to wash their face in the morning and night except when wearing makeup).

Choose a serum you can use day and night, but if you prefer to have different products for AM and PM thats also okay. But choosing one product that targets what you want and your skin needs helps to make you more consistent in using it (of course, only if its gentle enough). A good choice would be choosing serums or toners that have can target multiple problems, Glow Deep Serum by Beauty of Joseon can be used twice a day (if no allergies) or Son & Park Beauty Water can exfoliate, treat, and target.

If you get down to the nitty gritty, for over 50 moisturize and sunscreen are THE basics. You can forget about serums and cleansers (I know you wont 😉 ) and mositurize and suncreen daily can help prevent more aging, keeps your skin healthy, and protected.

To summarize, a simplified routine would be:


  1. Wash face with water
  2. Serum/Toner (Optional)
  3. Moisturizer
  4. Sunscreen


  1. Take off makeup (oil/balm cleanser, micellar water)
  2. Follow with water (gentle cleanser)/ Toner
  3. Serum
  4. Moisturizer

Lastly, don’t get to hung up on ingredient-focused products. I know that its the trend and known to work but multitasking products works just as well. Hope this helps 🙂

For regular “waterproof” makeup, I use micellar water. But for the true waterproof makeup that just won’t come off, I use Banila Co. It’s 26 dollars, but it’s a huge tub and a little bit goes really far. Long gone are the days that I just pull at my lashes hoping to get my mascara off as now the stuff just melts.

I’ve got sensitive combo skin and mild rosacea. I’m exhausted and overwhelmed by sunscreen.

My routine:


Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water with cotton pad.

CeraVe AM


Vanicream Gentle Facial Cleanser


CeraVe Moisturizing Cream

CeraVe AM makes my skin much more oily than using the Moisturizing Cream instead. I’ve tried Vanicream Sunscreen, which made my skin even more oily than CeraVe AM and greasy and sticky and my skin started stinging in sunlight and I’m pretty sure it damaged my moisture barrier. I’ve tried Blue Lizard Sensitive, but it too was greasy and made my skin oily.

I’ve spent hours upon hours trying to find a suncreen my skin actually likes, but am totally paralyzed by the number of choices, ingredients, online feedback, arguments over what does or doesn’t provide enough protection, and what ingredients are and aren’t safe.

My wishlist is ridiculous and my skin is dreading it:

CANMAKE Mermaid Skin Gel

Blue Lizard Face Mineral

Blue Lizard Sensitive Face Mineral

ROHTO Skin Aqua Super Moisture Milk

PURITO Comfy Water Sun Block

Sonrei Sea Clearly Premium

SKIN AQUA Super Moisture Milk

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch

Dr.Jart+ Every Sun Day

Nivea Super Sun Protect Water Gel

PURITO Centella Green Level

KRAVE Beauty Beet The Sun

Neutrogena Healthy Defense Daily

Etude House Sunprise Mild Airy Finish Sun Milk

I have no idea how to decide between them. But I would like to not destroy my skin. I would almost rather give up.

I’ve read that the micelles in micellar water need to bind to the fibers of a cotton pad so they can arrange themselves “oil-attracting side up.”

There’s a video of this on the Amazon Bioderma product page (couldn’t find a Youtube link of it): https://www.amazon.com/Bioderma-Sensibio-Soothing-Micellar-Cleansing/dp/B002XZLAWM
