Buying Bioderma in the USA


I can't tell you how long I've been wanting Bioderma Sensibio H20 Micelle Solution, I definitely know how hard it can be to find in the US. The one things that I was wary of was whether or not it would be fake buying it on Amazon or Ebay. I finally got my hands on it, I decided to take a risk and buy it on Amazon, there were a lot of sellers at completely different prices. And quite of few of them had reviews saying that it was fake or expired (like many other beauty products on Amazon...) but the seller I bought it from didn't have any such reviews so I thought I was good to go, even though it was quite expensive. And I am confident that it is real. I just don't think I'll take the risk again buying it on Amazon.

I've recently discovered the joys of shopping on UK websites because most of them will ship to the US, including Cult Beauty, Pai, Feelunique, and more importantly, Escentual, which has been the more reliable and cheapest website that I've found for Bioderma. Most of these websites will ship for about $8.00 or even free after spending x amount. It's completely worth it to buy Bioderma (which is about $10.00 less on Escentual then Amazon at the moment) or other products you can't get here.

Do you have any Bioderma-friendly websites that you can access here in the US?

Five New Products



I recently did a bit of shopping and picked up some amazing products. It's been a while since I've been this lucky with beauty shopping. Usually there are a few misses but this time everything is great.

Caudalie Vinosource S.O.S. Thirst Quenching Serum- $48.00
This is a long awaited product, it's so expensive so I had a hard time going out and actually buying it. But I'm here to tell you. It is worth it. If you have dry skin at all this is the product for you.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil- $9.50
I haven't used this particular bottle of this yet because I don't have any blemishes at the moment, but I've used my sister's before and loved it. I'm so glad to have finally bought it for myself.

Nuxe Reve De Miel- $19.00
This is probably my favorite of the bunch, it has quickly become a holy grail product. I suddenly can't imagine my life without it.

Bioderma Micelle Solution- around $30
Finally, I got my hands on Bioderma! It's even better then I even imagined! Never before has a makeup remover worked so well, just a simple swipe removes most of my eye makeup and feels so great on the skin.

The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter- $15.00
I got a sample of this a few months ago and loved it, I was just waiting to use up a few other cleansers before purchasing and it's really nice. It's so cool how it turns into an oil!

Have you gotten any new products lately?

Feet

I recently acquired almost the complete foot care line from The Body Shop and now that I've been using them for a few weeks I am completely in love. I always thought that the line would be good but I wasn't into foot care so I wasn't interested in it. But I finally accepted Essiebutton's recommendation on it and I will never look back!

The scrub is my favorite product from the peppermint line, it actually has bits of pumice in it for a really intense scrub. I also use it every week or so as a hand scrub although I have to be more gentle with it.

I was really excited to try a pumice- and then I read that this isn't real pumice, it's actually polyurethane- which I learned is what most feet pumices are made out of, I guess people don't want us using volcanic rock on our feet. Despite my disappointment, I love this pumice, if you may not have guessed I had never tried one before and it was different than I expected. It almost lathered while using it and wasn't as rough as I thought it would be.

This soak is nice but I feel like it was a little expensive for what it is. This is probably my least favorite product from the line, just because I get the same result with some Epsom Salt.


I was a little worried to use the lotion and foot rescue because of the peppermint smell, I thought it may mix weird with whatever body butter or lotion I had used but after applying them, there isn't a weird smell.

I like this duo a lot, I will use the lotion for two days and then the rescue for one - with the occasional foot butter thrown in there. I'm surprised how well I've stuck to this routine, seeing as I'm terrible about things like that.











I was scared to use this product because I heard such great things about it but my sister didn't like it (this is actually her discarded bottle) and we tend to like the same things. It's a very nice experience using it but perhaps it may be better for the summer time when I go without socks more. I think that it is really great deodorizer rather than "cooling" or "relieving."






Spa Wisdom Africa Honey & Beeswax Hand and Foot Butter- $22
This is definitely one of my favorite products of all time. It smells amazing and works extremely well as a thick foot cream and hand cream. I usually use it at night before bed and in the morning my feet and hand feel well nourished, something I don't necessarily get from creams or lotions.

I think the packaging of the peppermint range is the nicest from The Body Shop, the little foot is so cute.
