I’ve got to admit, I’m a little bit disappointed with these wipes – they took an awful lot of getting as they couldn’t be found in any regular pharmacy in Paris, and then an internet search that took forever to identify a site with UK delivery. When they did get here, after paying a £10 delivery charge, the wipes arrived loose in a badly knotted Sainsbury’s carrier bag dumped on my doorstep. Bizarre.
Anyway, I am a huge, huge fan of the regular Crealine cleanser…it’s been my cleansing staple for a year or more, with occasional breaks when my skin is dry when I swap for a balm cleanser. The wipes just don’t seem to have the same cleansing oomph though. They’re okay, as cleansing wipes go – they cleanse effectively – but if you’re expecting the same performance as the bottle cleanser, you’ll be disappointed. I don’t use wipes other than occasional lazy-emergency use but when I do I can never get the same truly cleansed feel. It’s the same with the Bioderma wipes, although they are very gentle on the skin.

It was great to see you and chat at the handpicked/17 event last week.
I’m devoted to Bioderma crealine micellaire water. Seems to be impossible get in London now, but I’m going to Paris in December, so let me know if you’d like a bottle brought back and I can bring it to the HP meet-up. £10 shipping fee is ridiculous!
Thank you for sharing your experience, I was thinking to give this a try, now I’ll just skip it. I like the Micellaire water from Nuxe or Roche-Posay. With wips, I got with Lise Watier a brand in NA. There wipes remove makeup well, not irretating for sensitive eyes and are soft on skin.
I didn’t they had wipes at all. I also don’t feel quite sure about cleansing my face with wipes – it’s nowhere near using some foaming cleanser, or Bioderma’s Sensibio H2O, which I discovered only a few days ago…
I have been using these since I went to Paris and I have got to say I disagree. As someone who uses cleansing wipes regularly, and have tried every single brand on the market in the UK the Bioderma wipes are actual the best I have ever used. They cleanse effectively and leave my skin feeling fresh and not tight – I would recommend cleaning wipe addicts give them a go.
i would love to ask which site did you get them from? or which site sells bioderma products? many thanks.
I LOVE Bioderma cleansing wipes, I used to use Johnsons baby wipes, but they are just not as effective as BioDerma. Anyone going to Paris? please bring me a packet!!
Odd that you couldn’t find them in a regular pharmacy in Paris. I saw them everywhere when visiting in April and bought them myself. They’re great but too bad you had such a hassle getting them!
The regular H20 cleanser solution is the only one I use since discovering it last year (especially if I’ve gone for a full face look) but I like the wipes for when I’m travelling & on the go. If people are interested but are having trouble tracking them down then they can message me as I get stuff from French pharmacies regularly including stuff from Bioderma & Embryolisse. £10 shipping is a rip!
