Probably the most famous micellar solution in the world, the French Bioderma Sensibio H2O is intended to remove impurities and make-up residues from sensitive skin. One Bioderma Sensibio H2O micellar solution is sold worldwide every 5 seconds.
I’m not a big fan of micellar solutions and I prefer to clean my skin with oils and gels, but sometimes I use them because of their practicality. When I don’t have time or don’t want to wet my hairstyle, I choose one that is designed for sensitive skin because it doesn’t contain perfume and alcohol.
All micellar solutions are more or less of the same composition, ie they do not have any big differences, but what makes this one so popular? For starters, it is one of the first micellar solutions to appear on the market. It also has such a package that allows you to dose the required amount of solution without soaking the entire pad. After removing the make-up, you will not need to wash your face, because it does not leave a film on the skin. Effectively removes make-up, does not dry out the skin and leaves it hydrated. It does not irritate the eyes and is suitable for sensitive eyes and for people who wear contact lenses.
The main active ingredients of all micellar solutions are micelle-forming surfactants and glycols that dissolve make-up. When you shake the bottle of micellar water, you will see that it has foamed due to the action of the surfactant, i.e. the foam.
It does not contain alcohol, perfume, parabens. It contains cucumber extract (Cucumis sativus) which is a common ingredient in products for sensitive skin because it has a soothing and hydrating effect.

SVR SENSIFINE AR micellar solution is intended for sensitive skin that is prone to redness. Free of parabens, alcohol, mineral oils and silicones. SVR is a French dermocosmetics that has been developing and producing high-quality, effective products in its laboratory for more than 60 years, in which dermatologically active ingredients are concentrated, intended for sensitive skin.
I have to admit that this micellar water is the only real competition to the cult Bioderma Sensibio H2O micellar solution. Nor does it leave a film on the skin that you need to rinse off, it perfectly removes make-up and gives skin prone to redness a feeling of cooling that soothes it. It contains niacinamide (vitamin B3), a cosmetic superstar that has a proven anti-aging effect, whitens the skin and has an anti-inflammatory effect and restores the cell barrier. It does not irritate the eyes, and indeed, although I wear lenses and have sensitive eyes, it has not caused me any side effects.

In this duel, I still give a slight advantage to SVR micellar solution because of the shade of more effective make-up removal and the feeling of thoroughly clean skin.
