Naomi Watts's menopausal skincare routine includes this French drugstore staple — and it's just $5 at Amazon

Naomi Watts is kind of everywhere right now. She and Chloe Sevigny are leading a glamourous bevy in Feud: Capote vs. the Swans from TV visionary Ryan Murphy that FX just dropped this week and she'll be reprising her role in The Watcher's second season later this year. Stunning on camera, the 55-year-old actress uses Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water as a part of her beauty routine and it's just $5 at Amazon when you apply the on-page coupon.

The molecules in this micellar water latch onto any makeup, dirt, oil or whatever debris your skin collects throughout the day.

Why is it a good deal?

While this micellar goes on sale occasionally, we rarely see Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water for less than $13. If the price does drop, we don't expect it to go lower than $5 until summer.

Why do I need this?

Bioderma is a French pharmaceutical company. It developed the Sensibio H2O Micellar Water by suspending tiny micelle oil molecules in soft water. The result is a solution that attracts dirt and makeup and pulls it away from your face gently, leaving behind clean and hydrated skin and lashes.

"I love this product," she said in her pre-bed beauty routine video for Harper's Bazaar. "It's very affordable I used to go to French pharmacies for this." Now she doesn't have to get it in France and neither do you! With just a click, it will be delivered to your door.

As a post-menopausal woman, Naomi Watts takes her skincare seriously. Since perimenopause symptoms started for her when she was 36, she's put a lot of effort into speaking openly about menopause and the effects it has on all parts of our bodies, including our skin. She went as far as creating her own skincare brand specifically for menopause symptoms called Stripes. She continues to raise awareness about menopause so women don't have to feel their way around in the dark when perimenopause starts.

What reviewers say

You can count 40,000 Amazon shoppers as fans of Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micellar Water as well.

Have been using this for years, and it's my go-to makeup remover," raved a happy shopper. "Removes every last bit of makeup, doesn't sting my eyes as long as I'm not completely SOAKING them, and never irritates my sensitive skin. Hope they never stop making this product because I'll use it for life!

"The best makeup remover ever!" a five-star fan wrote. "This product does not dry out my skin and does a great job of getting face makeup off. It’s not the best at getting my mascara off but I’m okay with that. I have yet to find a product that gets my mascara AND face makeup off that my skin can tolerate."

"This product really is gentle on the skin and eyes and removes eye makeup very well," wrote a beauty enthusiast. "I first was introduced to this in Paris and now can't live without it!"

Favorite makeup remover ever, ever, ever!!!" gushed a rave reviewer. "I have acne-prone skin ... Not only does this do a wonderful job removing all makeup, it is the least offensive product I have ever used. The only con is that if you get it on your lips, and then lick them, it's quite an off-putting taste."

Infused with cucumber water and glycerin, this micellar water also has moisturizing properties to keep the skin around your eyes supple. The big bottle is just $12 when you apply the on-page coupon.

Need help wiping your makeup off? Naomi Watts also loves these reusable microfiber pads.

“I travel with these,” she said. “They are great and I hate it when people take off makeup with white cloths because it just seems even in a hotel rude to leave your black stains and you know red lipstick streaks and it's just not nice so I always take one of those.”

$22 at Amazon
