Sunny days are just around the corner as March is going to end soon but that doesn't mean we're going to take off our masks yet. I acknowledge that wearing mask makes our skin suffers and may cause breakouts due to humidity or sweating, because I experience it too! Maybe I am lucky because pimple doesn't appear easily, but I can't get over from whiteheads since the pandemic. That's why when it comes to regular skincare, I always go back to one of my favorite skincare brand which is Bioderma, to keep my skin healthy. Thank God, Clozette Indonesia knows my needs and they sent me over two Bioderma products which are Sensibio H2O Micellar Water and Photoderm Max SPF 100 PA++++ right after I was running out of my sunscreen, what a coincidence! Fyi, since the pandemic I rarely wear BB cream or foundation and replace it with sunscreen only that's why I finish sunscreen quicker because I wear it everyday. 

Ok I am done with the introduction, what if we're just heading to the review?


1. BIODERMA SENSIBIO H2O MICELLAR WATER 250 ML



What it is :
Micellar water that is specialized for normal to sensitive skin, highly purified water with 9 steps of purification which has same quality as medical water for injection (WFI). This micellar water cleanses skin from impurities and pollution particles, removes makeup from face and eyes, and soothes skin.

How to use : 
Soak cotton pad with the micellar water then gently cleanse makeup from face, no rinsing required.

Review :
Frankly it's not my first time writing review for this micellar water (you can read the previous article here), but I can't get enough of it so I'll just do deep review here. Packaging wise, it's safely sealed and quite sturdy. We can take out the product with no dripping water because the hole size is just precise. It's fragrance-free and it's very safe to cleanse eyes and lips without feeling sore. It is able to cleanse waterproof makeup but it requires quite extra effort, if you prefer a quick result better to use oil based makeup remover, however it does pretty well. It's also hydrates and soothes my skin very well, every time I use this micellar water my skin feels so refreshed!

PROS :
- Securely sealed packaging
- Fragrance-free
- Able to remove makeup
- Doesn't irritate eyes and lips
- Soothes, hydrates skin

CONS : None, but based on the pricing it's slightly pricey.

Rate : 5 out of 5
Price : IDR 258.500 (around $17.90) / 250ml , also available in 100ml and 500ml


2. PHOTODERM MAX SPF 100 PA++++






What it is :
Sunscreen with high quality sun filter, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic formula, with excellent skin tolerance without irritants (fragrance). Photoderm MAX offers optimal protection against harmful effects of UV rays (sunburn, sun intolerance) as well as genuine internal biological protection from the exclusive Cellular Bioprotection patent. This patent boosts skin's natural defenses, protects cells and reduces premature skin aging.

How to use :
Apply evenly before exposure and re-apply frequently before and after swimming, friction, or sport.

Review : 
This my first time applying sunscreen with highest SPF and actually it's not bad. From the picture above, you can see that I had quite hard time blending the cream because the texture is quite thick to me. After several times, finally it blends well with no white cast. Despite of the thick texture, this sunscreen feels light on my skin, seems like I never put any sunscreen before. As mostly I stay indoor, I can feel this sunscreen does a good job to protect my skin from UV rays so I am sure it's good for outdoor activity too. It's fragrance-free, even after few hours it doesn't feel greasy as well. It doesn't brighten up skin but have I told you that it's safe for sensitive skin?

PROS :
- Safe for sensitive skin
- Non greasy
- Feels light after completely absorbs into skin
- Leaves no white cast
- Fragrance-free
- Hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic

CONS :
- Thick texture that makes it hard to blend

Rate : 4 out of 5
Price : IDR 319.000 (around $22) / 40ml 


After using these two products daily, my skin seems to be away from breakouts although I wear mask everyday, well, although I've been a loyal user of their Sensibio H2O micellar water since 4 years ago. Bioderma really knows how to please me with their high quality products, I am sold!
