2013 went mad for micellar waters after french skincare brands such as La Roche Posay, Vichy and Bioderma became more readily available in the UK. However, the cult Bioderma micellar solution is still only available online at french make-up and skincare website escentual.com, and (inluding the £3.99 postage charge) a bottle comes in at around £15 so it is still very expensive compared to its prices in France. 

L'Oreal was the first brand that is very big in the UK to have their own miccelar water. Their version imitates the Bioderma one in many ways; white cap, pink sticker, and formula that is suitable for sensitive skin. To be honest, there isn't very much difference between the two formula wise, although the L'Oreal one starts to foam if too much is put onto a cotton pad at once. I think they are both incredible products, and for L'Oreal to match the cult classic Bioderma.

However, there are some small things that I feel Bioderma has just beaten L'Oreal at. The design of the cap of the Micellar water is not very helpful and you can easily spill it and waste product. The water also only comes in one size (200ml), while Bioderma comes in three sizes and in double-packs so you can take it on holiday or stock up with bigger bottles. Coming in at £4.99 (£2.50 approx per 100ml), the L'Oreal micellar water is much cheaper than Bioderma which can range from £4.50-£2.90 per 100ml. Overall, I think that both products are very similar and I love them both, but for availability and price I will continue to use L'Oreal and save my Bioderma for special occasions (or really bad skin days) only!
