Ever heard of a cleansing gel that is safe for the eyes? No? Yeah, me neither. This is the first time coming across a product like this. I wrote a review for their Sensibio Micellar Water , please feel free to check it out and see why it’s so popular! I want to thank Lea for sending this over to me so I can try out and experience their Sensibio line. I was not aware that they had a product like this, I think this was either unavailable at my local drugstore or just sold out.
Bioderma Sensibio Micellar Cleansing and Makeup Removing Foaming Gel – 200 ml
Available at: Amazon
This foaming gel is specifically created for those who have sensitive skin who are looking for a mild cleansing option that is reinforced with hydration. Sensitive skin/intolerant skin does not have the ability to combat against irritants. Makeup, makeup removing, pollution, external stress leaves skin weakened and tightened day in and day out.
This foaming gel is free of the following: soap, fragrance, paraben and it hypoallergenic + non-comedogenic (will not clog your pores)
I’ll admit, I was quite nervous when I read the claim of it being eye-safe. My eyes are ridiculously sensitive, they easily get itchy, dry and even red from just using products that had ingredients that irritate it. Surprisingly, I did not experience any stinging or issues with using this and it removed pretty much all of my makeup off really well. I wear waterproof liquid eyeliner every single day and it’s quite stubborn and strong stuff so I’m shocked to see something so mild and gentle on my eye and especially my eyes be able to remove the toughest makeup. This has definitely made my makeup cleansing experience a lot more exciting because I know I wouldn’t have stinging eyes or tight skin from using this. I’ve been using this about a month and I’m very confident to say that I really love this micellar gel.
TIP: With clean and wet hands, dispense out 1 pump of the product and lather it between your palms until it gets a bit frothy then apply onto face. Close your eyes and gently massage the product off your face, this step will take about 2-3 minutes so be gentle and patient. Once you rinse off the product, you will notice your skin is clean and soft but not squeaky clean, dry and tight.
Who said thick creams are strictly for winter? I suffer from very dehydrated skin. Although I have combination skin, it’s still possible to have that issue. Cerave has been one of the most life-changing brands that I came across late last year. I was struggling with seasonal eczema and nothing I used worked for my skin except for their classic moisturizing cream, formulated with ceramides, fatty alcohols and hyaluronic acid. It wasn’t the most glamorous looking however, it did the job; better than any high-end product I’ve tried. One 500ml tub cost me around 15 CAD( I got this during a sale) but they normally range between 20~26, varying where you purchase it.
Cerave was kind enough to send over their renewing SA line. The first product I will be sharing with you is their cream. This is specifically to help prevent and reduce the appearance of recurrence of dry, itchy and inflamed skin. Sounds like the dream, huh? It doesn’t matter what time of the year it is, my body is forever dry and quite flakey.

Initially, I was worried that this cream was going to be too thick for me. I wanted something a bit more lightweight however I had a couple moments where my skin’s barrier was compromised; it felt so rough and parched so I turned to this to see if it could help and it really did. With continuous usage for over 2 months, I saw a significant difference in my skin’s overall health and appearance. You can see how much more glowy it is, plump and hydrated. I would recommend this to those who suffer from dehydration, irritated and textured skin.
Bioderma does it again with another outstanding product. My skin has been absolutely insane this summer and not only that, it has been constantly flipping back and forth from dehydration to producing excess oil. My skin most certainly is responding to the humidity and the constant shift of cool to hot weather in a very negative way. Although I enjoy rich and creamy textures, I do prefer to wear more lightweight and gel formulas during the day time because it’s more comfortable on the skin and does the job.
Bioderma Hydrabio Gel-Creme

You can apply this evenly throughout the face or you can use this as light treatment for skin irritation and use another moisturizer if needed. I often have irritation on my nose and cheeks and a lot of products I normally use, do not work for my skin during when it’s irritated. I find this is quite mild where I can use it as a topical treatment to calm down and soothe my irritation.

Gaston does it again with another cute product. This time they decided to create a cushion compact! The one thing I admire and enjoy about cushion compacts is although it may have makeup components to it, it also has skincare benefits such as brightening, anti-aging and even spf!
This cushion has this luxurious appearance to it because of the gold accents to it. The cat logo is iconic and is just adorable! I was one of the very first international influencers to collaborate with Gaston and I am grateful to be able to be working with them. The first debuted with their beautiful eye patches. Both clear and black eye patches were just fantastic. They contacted me to see if I would be interested in trying out their cushion compact. I chose the shade #21 because I’m #21 for other brands such as Missha, Hera and etc.

Bioderma sent over some goodies for it to try out to review for you all! They were so generous and sent over another bottle of my all-time fave micellar water. I will be gradually sharing their products one by one. I’ve gone through bottles of this, multiple dupes to see if there was anything like this and I turned back to this. Here’s why!
The older packaging was just something you just poured out the product or while the newer, revamped packaging has a pump function.
HOW TO: Place the cotton pad on the top and it pumps out the product. I need about two full pumps to fill up my cotton and it does an amazing job breaking down waterproof eye makeup.
I did an Instagram poll not too long ago asking if my audience liked to purchase their skincare/beauty products online or instore and surprisingly, a lot of them preferred to shop online. As a fellow beauty lover, I am quite the same. I prefer to not have any real-life interactions and prefer to shop freely. There are countless online shops everyone seems to shop at. My favorite online stores to shop at are:
There are other shops I do shop at however, I prefer shopping from these sources because I usually can find products I enjoy at a very fair price.
In no way, I am trying to scare you all but rather share some precautions I take when online shopping because you truly never really know. If you have any further questions, please feel free to drop me a comment below or DM me on instagram!
