Bioderma Sebium H2O Solution - Review

Tuesday, May 01, 2012


A few weeks ago after several glowing reviews of Bioderma Crealine soloution on the blogosphere
I went in guns blazing and bought a small bottle of the cleanser
without foolishly releasing that Bioderma actually produce a version that targets oily skin.
So once I finished said small bottle I of course had to purchase Bioderma Sebium.

Bioderma Sebium H2O solution is one of the oh so now Micellar solution cleansers
which is basically oil infused water in laymen's terms - science never was my strong point!
Although the product contains oil of some sort it does not feel oily but gentle and water like
but boy does it remove make-up like no other!
One cotton pad soaked in Bioderma Sebium  H2O solution will pretty much remove your entire
days make-up but I like to use three, two on my face and one for eye make-up.

Why do I adore Micellar solutions? Let thee count the ways..kidding!
But what makes me such a convert is not only it's effectiveness but how gentle it is.
They remove make-up, dirt and grime without stripping the skin or being oily,
I don't find it to leave any oily residue on my skin at all which is wonderful for someone who hates oil!
This version is aimed at oily skin and unlike the crealine version it isn't colour nor scent free
but it didn't play havoc with my skin at all and will cleanse your skin while cooling it...great after a long day.
Another benefit of both Bioderma H2O solutions is that you don't rise the formula off
so if you are a fan of cleansing wipes but don't find them effective let me introduce you to your new BFF!
However this version does not say if you can use this to take of your eye make-up 
so for that reason for now i'm going to advise against such procedure.

In all honesty I'm not sure which solution I prefer best?
I like that the Sebium solution works better with my oily skin and does seem to keep oil at bay
for that little longer each day - not massively so but every little helps.
However being able to use the same product to remove all my make-up eyes included
and being scent free does give the Crealine version the slight edge!
Also it has to be said for both solutions I feel I finish the bottle rather quickly!
Anyone else feel this way?

Have you used either or both?
If so which did you prefer.

I purchased all my Bioderma via eBay using this seller - link.

  1. ive used the bioderma crealine and i have to agree i felt like i used mine, within days! i found i had to use a generous amount of the product and while i loved it i didnt feel this was cost friendly at £10 a bottle! (from amazon). i did love how it cleared my makeup and made me feel very fresh and clean, but it did dry my skin and give it a tight feeling after use, after a moistursing it was fine. i didnt repurchase this because of the cost and how little amount of time it lasted. great review hun! (as always) so looking forward to the giveaway results x

    1. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who feels like it just evaporates haha! Ah sorry to hear it dried your skin out, i'm oily so that doesn't happen often as for the giveaways all winners will be announced on Thursday at the latest :)

  2. I've used sebium h2o in the past (recommended by my dermatologist years ago, I guess this is a new version though) and I absolutely loved it. It was perfect for my skin which is very sensitive and can get red/dry/break out rather easily. I haven't used it in a long time though and now that you mentioned it I might be encouraged to purchase again. Great product!

    1. I'm glad it really worked for you :) if you do re-purchase it i'd be interested in your thoughts to see if you feel if the formula has improved etc?

    1. I agree it seems any decent product is from somewhere else and that the UK doesn't stock it haha!

  4. I am a total Bioderma convert as it's both the easiest and most effective cleansing solution I've ever used. I do go through it at a rapid rate though, so I feel your pain! I keep a constant surplus now :) xx

    1. Haha i'm really glad it's not just me who feels it is used up too quickly! I often buy back-ups but never replace the back up and just end back where I began haha :)

  5. I really loved my bottle of bioderma and fully planned on purchasing the green version too once it was used up!
    But as they test on animals I have decided against it, there are some others I'd like to try now by caudalie and This Works that seem just as nice but animal friendly too! :)

    1. Oh no I didn't know that :( I won't repurchase this or the other bioderma cleanser (gel) in that case and try caudalie as I have been meaning to :) and thanks for the heads up!

    2. You are very welcome! :)
      Whenever I see people raving about it now I feel the need to tell them, even if they don't care! especially as it's in everyones 'favourites' at this time of month, I see a bioderma post a few times a day! xo

  6. I've used both and even if I have oily skin I preferred the Crealine. Idk why I felt like there was a slight residue with Sebium, and all the other stuff about fragrance and colour and not being able to use it on eyes totally tips it for me ;)

    1. I agree the crealine pips it to the post :), I didn't/don't experience any residue but it irks me that it is scented and tinted :( oh and that as far as I can see it's not for the eyes!

  7. I never tried but I heard so much about that I am so excited to try it! thanks for sharing!

  10. I finally got my hands on the Bioderma Crealine thanks to my french work colleague & I absolutely LOVE it! I admit that I am EXTREMELY lazy when it comes to make up removal *blushes* but with this by my bedside tis no longer a problemo! :D

    Love Aysh xoxo

  11. Loving the new blog look!
    I have the pink version and love it but have found a pretty good alternative in the Garnier clean sensitive moisture infusion cleansing water which is much easier to find in AUS & cheap, cheap, CHEAP! Love it.

  12. Haven't used that brand before but I do adore using oil for cleansing the face. works really well in removing makeup, more than anything

  13. I have tried etat pur micellar cleansing water and the bioderma, I like both but continue to purchase the etat pur one as it lasts longer for me. I have never looked in to the bioderma sebum one, may give that a go -Thanks.

  14. I really like the sensitive version, but this one dries my skin a bit :(

  15. Hmmm...I'm currently waiting for the Etat Pur to arrive along with some of their actives. May give This one a whirl when I need to replace.

  16. My skin goes towards the oily side but I have only used the crealine and have to say i'm really happy with it.I like how it doesn't smell of anything and can be used all over... I was considering trying the sebium but if it smeels or can't be used on the eyes. I'll prpbably give it miss.

  17. I got this too since I had oily/combination skin and it was just awful. It really dried my skin out and left it painful and sensitive :( it was horrible! Hope it works better for others

  19. Personally I think it's the best invention since sliced bread. Cleans all my make up, even the most stubborn and leaves my skin feeling fresh.
