Bioderma Sebium Review


If the Winter has been cold and dragged until May, we had an especially hot summer until now. 

With this hott weather combined to my oily skin, I just couldn't rely solely on my Marcelle Ultra Gentle Cleansing Gel anymore. I needed something more astringent.

It was by pure chance that I stumble across the Bioderma Purifying Cleansing Foaming Gel. I was actually looking for my mum's birthday gift and there was a promotion on Bioderma and I needed a little something to claim my gift. As I saw this one the shelf, I thought it would be more expensive (as the Bioderma Sensibio is quite expensive) but it was only $6.89. Not too bad, and for 100ml,  it's working out a little more than the regular drugstore cleanser.

Bioderma says:

Formulated with non-irritant substances, Sébium Foaming gel cleanses gently.
Sébium Foaming gel reduces sebum secretion and purifies the epidermis thanks to the Fluidactiv® sebum-correcting complex. It also regulates sebum quality.
Its soap-free, washing base guarantees good cutaneous and ocular tolerance.
Sébium Foaming gel is non-comedogenic.

After bringing it home, I was concerned about the colour, and nasty dyes. As I am looking to use cleaner products on my face, it annoyed me. And look at that blue! But the tube specifies that there is no colouring. Thumbs up!

The scent is really lovely, not too overpowering. I would describe it as sweet herbal. As the name suggests, it is a foaming gel, which might be a concern for certain, as it can be stripping. For my part, this is not a problem, but for some they can argue that if you stripe the skin from its oil, the sebacious gland will then go into overdrive and produce more sebum. I didn't notice that. 

As for spots, it stays the same, I always have one on my chin, due to hormones (PCOS). It is under control since June, a little before I started using the Bioderma Sebium Cleansing Gel.

Overall I am really pleased with it and would recommend if you have acne prone and/or oily skin.

Bioderma Purifying Cleansing Foaming Gel, in drugstores, is around $7 for 100ml.
