It's not so much the brand as it is, micellar water - What is micellar water?
A micelle is a microscopic cluster of surfactant molecules which has two ends, the head surrounds all around the outside of the molecule, the head likes water and the tails which are pointing inwards are hydrophobic (hates water) & likes oils and these molecules are basically hanging around in soft water.
Short & sweet, use micellar water as a cleanser. One that of course doesn't feel like a cleanser. It should be simple & effective enough to remove all the dirt & make-up without leaving skin irritated and suffering from break outs, you don't need to rinse it off.
Now honestly, there's only one cleanser I use when it comes to removing make-up, LUSH Ultrabland - you'll always read/hear me say that cos it's true, it removes the most stubborn make-up -instantly.
How I use it is by soaking the bioderma pad and starting on my eyes where I've noticed that liquid eyeliner and waterproof mascara's take a little longer but you never want to rub your eyes, just press gently onto your eyes carefully not allowing the bioderma to seep in and gently coax the products off. Foundation easily removes off, almost slips.
Being that this particular Bioderma (Sébum) is aimed at those with oily/prone skin it should be welcomed to my skin. I'm on the fence, it's a product I like to keep handy and have my own use for it as it's effective and gentle but I just don't like how my skin feels afterwards.
I see the point of my make-up tutors telling me it's great to have for the kit, if we need to remove anything, clean up, yeah great. I couldn't use it and continue with the rest of the night routine, (skipping the cleansing) there's still more to be done in my opinion. It can be used as a pre-cleanser but for me? I enjoy a product that can take off my make-up and continue to clean my face so I can go ahead & moisturise.
