Skincare | Bioderma

Last month, I was contacted by Bioderma and asked if I wanted to try out some of their products and I jumped at the opportunity. It came at the perfect time as I had just started Roaccutane so was having a little shake up of my skincare and introducing more gentle and hydrating products to deal with the changes in my skin from oily/combo to dry/sensitive. 


Bioderma review sebium hydra

Starting off with the most recognisable Bioderma product in my opinion – the Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution* RRP £10.80 - and can you believe I had never tried this before now? I’m not going to lie, micellar water is not my usual jam, I much prefer a balm or oil as a first cleanse and then something like a gel or paste for a second cleanse so never really saw the need for micellar waters but I can see why this has the hype it does! The Sensibio range is targeted at sensitive to redness prone skin and is alcohol and fragrance free. I’ve been using it on days when I wear makeup to remove the bulk of my makeup before following with a balm and then sometimes a gel or paste too. The micelle solution itself is great, the formula is mild, gentle, non-astringent and really just feels like water, I was shocked at how much makeup it removed! It leaves no residue or film behind either which I appreciate! The only place it struggles a little I would say is with my two coats of waterproof mascara, it does a valiant job but I do need to go back in with either a balm or my trusty Nivea double effect waterproof eye makeup remover to get the last, hard to remove, clumps off!

Next up, I have the Sebium Hydra* RRP £11.50 which is a moisturiser that has been specially formulated for skin that has become dry and fragile following dermatological treatments like antibiotics or laser. This is a lightweight cream that has been working brilliantly for me under makeup. One of its top ingredients is Paraffinum Liquidum/Mineral Oil which I’ll be honest is an ingredient I tend to avoid in skincare. But, if you saw my post last week about starting Roaccutane, you will have seen I got prescribed a huge tub of paraffin as it works so well to lock in moisture so in this case its working well for my skin. It also includes glycerin, dimethicone and ceramide on the ingredients list. Like I said, I have been favouring this under makeup as it’s so smoothing and gives me long lasting hydration. Even under makeup, throughout the day my skin doesn’t feel tight or uncomfortable. I have a smile line on one side that makeup can tend to settle in and it is non-existent and I would say it’s a combination of this and regular misting throughout the day! The Sebium range is formulated for combination to oily acne prone skin and is non-comedogenic but I would say there is fragrance in this product so bare that in mind – it’s a very pleasant light cucumber scent that I haven’t had any sensitivity to.

 

I was also sent the Atoderm lip balm* RRP £5.50 as another side effect of Roaccutane is super dry lips though I am a lip balm fiend at the best of times so am just applying it with the same frequency as I always do! With my lips being a little more dry and chapped though especially with winter, this has been lovely to have as it’s so soothing. It’s got a really subtle raspberry scent and there is a little slip to it so I can feel it on my lips for a long time after applying. It contains mineral oil and paraffin as well as shea butter and beeswax and is face mask approved too as there is very little transfer when I am out and about with one on! I like how it has a slanted tip as it feels a little fancier to apply and my lips have been really well hydrated throughout the day with this! The Atoderm range is targeted to normal, dry to atopic skin.

I also ended up ordering the Atoderm Ultra-Nourishing Anti-Irritation Shower Oil RRP £9 as Escentual were doing 25% off and I had heard such good things about this and thought it would be perfect for my body. It’s a thick oil that also doubles as a cleanser for your face too so dual product! It feels luxurious, not greasy at all, and creates a mild lather. It is formulated with vegetal biolipids that create a defensive barrier over your skin and after my shower my skin feels soft and nourished. I have a tendency to get dry patches on my legs in winter and this coupled with my moisturiser have been keeping those at bay! It’s very lightly fragranced but no scent lingers and some other reviews I’ve read say it’s very good for shaving but I haven’t tried it that way myself! It also works well for me when I am removing tan as oil gives my exfoliating mitts a little somethin’ somethin’ to get any stubborn patches off!

Overall, I am really impressed with Bioderma’s line up! The Sebium Hydra and Shower Oil are my standouts and exactly what my skin has been craving at the minute! I definitely want to try more body products too! I recommended purchasing from Escentual as they regularly do up to a third off French Pharmacy products but Bioderma is also available from Look Fantastic, Boots and Feel Unique! Have you tried any of their products? Let me know your favourites!

  8. I love Bioderma as a brand. The original micellar water has been a holy grail product for me for so many years now, it is absolutely amazing and I have only recently replaced it with Caudalie. I am curious now to try every other product you've mentioned. Thanks for such a detailed review, Danielle! xx

  9. The only thing I have tried from them is the original Micellar water but since I discovered the Garnier one is just as good, I stopped buying these... The cleanser sounds great though? I don't always like the balmy or oily texure of first cleanses but I use them as I find them the most effective...
