Eye Makeup Be Gone: Bioderma Crealine H2O Miscellar Solution

Last week I was experimenting with a new eyeliner technique...trying to perfect my winged/kitten eye effect. In doing so, I was constantly taking off my eye makeup. After about 10 attempts, the corners of my eyes were extremely irritated. You see I had finished off my favorite eye makeup remover — Caudalie Cleansing Water — and was reaching for anything (samples, etc.) that could do the job. A serious bad move on my part!

The good news is that while plowing through my makeup remover samples, I discovered a recent European find from my spring trip to France — Bioderma Crealine H2O Miscellar Solution. I had read about this brilliant makeup remover before my trip, so I made sure to pick up a bottle from a pharmacy in Lyon. (Travel tip...French pharmacies are skincare havens. Don't leave France without visiting one or two!) I had used Crealine H2O on my trip, but forgot that I had brought the bottle home with me.

Crealine H2O is an unscented makeup remover and cleansing solution that is super gentle on the skin. It is a non-detergent and non-foaming formula with a neutral pH. I apply a generous amount to a cotton pad and then wipe the pad over the entire eye area. It gently lifts all my makeup — including waterproof mascara — without leaving behind any residue. It's perfect for cleaning up makeup boo-boos or removing your makeup at the end of the day. While I've used Caudalie Cleansing Water for years, I felt that Crealine H2O did a better job. Sometimes the Caudalie product leaves behind a bit of sticky film that needs to be rinsed off.

My biggest goof — not bringing home an entire suitcase of Crealine H2O!

Purchase info: Bioderma Crealine H2O Miscellar Solution is inexpensive and readily available at pharmacies in France and other European countries. However, you'll need to search online for purchasing it in the U.S., and be warned that you'll pay nearly double (plus shipping) outside of Europe.
