I get asked so many times what’s good to pick up in French pharmacies. The answer always used to be Bioderma Crealine (Sensibio H2o) which was a standard make-up artist must-have for cleansing and soothing over exhausted model skin during their work at fashion weeks. Now of course, it’s available in the UK very readily (HERE) but it did start our fascination with micellar waters. I haven’t yet found a Bioderma product that I don’t like, but Crealine will always be a particular favourite. BUT, look what they’ve done now! Bioderma Hydrabio Eau de Soin SPF30 is a facial mist (like Evian or similar) but the key difference is that they’ve somehow managed to incorporate an SPF30 into a spray water. How? It’s quite extraordinary.
As you can see, it’s like any other water fuelled facial mist with an atomiser spray. We’ve seen SPF get finer and finer as time has gone on – but never yet in a water. Maybe they have this in Korea already, but it’s the very first that I’ve seen of its type. Bioderma Hydrabio Eau de Soin SPF30 isn’t sunscreen as such – so you wouldn’t wear it to the beach. It’s much more of an as-you-need-it environmental protector, so more for taking on a run where you might be sweating off your original SPF so you can use it as a top up, or for sunny lunch time breaks from the office, or just to keep in your bag for the occasional spritz to protect against incidental sun.
You can use Bioderma Hydrabio Eau de Soin SPF30 on bare skin or over make up, on your hands, neck or face. It isn’t available in the UK – only in France – and it’s around EU9. I am pretty sure if you internet hard enough you’ll be able to have it delivered to the UK, but otherwise, beg anyone going to Paris to bring you this back! I think we’ll see it over here in the early part of next year. I’m predicting that this will outstrip even Crealine.
