My skin has been really temperamental and hormonal lately, so when a selection of the products from the Bioderma Sebium range landed on my desk, I happily put them to the test..

The Bioderma Sebium range is a range of products targeted those with oily to combination skin, skin prone to acne. Breakouts and acne is not just something that occurs in puberty, adolescents do not have total control over acne either, and as in my case, blemishes continues to persist, even now where anti-ageing products would be more appropriate.

All the Bioderma Sebium products are patented with the Fluidactiv patent that helps reduce and purify sebum in order to reduce the clogging in the pores and eliminate blemishes on the long term.

For the past couple of weeks I have been using;
  • Sébium H20 Micelle Solution
  • Sébium Cleansing Foaming Gel
  • Sébium Exfoliating Purifying Gel
  • Sébium Global Purifying Cream
  • Sébium Pore Refiner

The Bioderma Sébium H20 Micelle Solution is a micelle water, which I a makeup removing water specifically targeted for oily and combination skin. It is perfect for those who prefer a product that does not need to be rinsed off, but yet can still remove all traces of makeup, impurities including dirt and sebum, all while being super gentle on the skin, and not dry it out thanks to being PH balanced. In addition, it helps to regulate sebum quality and keep the pores from becoming clogged by purifying the skin ad limiting sebaceous secretion and this helping to clear up the skin. To use, you simple soap a cotton pad and gently wipe it over the face, and continue until the cotton pad is clean. I love that this one comes in a reversed pump bottle, which makes it even easier to use too. And absolute winner if you ask me, as it leaves my skin feeling clean, soft and fresh.

The Sébium Cleansing Foaming Gel is a foaming soap-free cleansing gel, which again cleanses the skin super gently from all impurities, while leaving the skin feeling clean deep down every pore. And again, it helps limit the formation of blemishes thanks to helping to regulate the sebum produced by the skin. I like splashing water in my face as I wash it, so I really like using this one, and have been using it as a second cleanse after removing my makeup, sometimes with my Clairsonic for added benefit.

The Bioderma Sébium Exfoliating Purifying Gel, which is an scrub that refines the skin texture, tightens pores and brightens the complexion while preventing the formation of blemishes. It is to be used once or twice a week, and I like to use it in the shower for a few moments. It contains gentle micro beads as well as gycolic and salicylic acid to help speed up the cell renewal and eliminate impurities.

Next is the Bioderma Sébium Pore Refiner, which is corrective care for enlarged pores. It is to be used after cleansing, either alone or before your moisturiser. It can be used either all over the face, or just locally on the t-zone area depending on need, and it is designed to help correct the skin's appearance so the texture becomes finer, more regular and clearer, and pores become more tightened and less visible, thanks to containing agaric acid, a powerful astringent. At the same time, like the rest of the products in the range, it also helps regulate sebum to prevent pores becoming clogged up and the skin breaking out. I have been using on my t-zone during the day, and love how it immediately has a mattifying effect, which also means that it works perfectly under makeup too

Then there's the Bioderma Sébium Global Intensive Purifying Care, which is a cream that is intended for those with acne prone skin with severe blemishes, so again perfect for my skin's current state. The cream helps treat the cause and consequence of blemishes, and helps restore the sebum of healthy skin to prevent severe blemishes. It contains among others AHA to help clear skin from spots and blackheads as well as zinc gluconate and enoxolonto to soothe and reduce redness cause by inflammation. As well as clearing and purifying the skin, it also helps reduce the residual marks after breakouts. The cream is to be used morning and night, and it is quit light and absorbs quickly into the skin, and leaves it soft and hydrated. I also love that it works perfectly under makeup, and has the bonus of keeping my skin more matte so consequently my makeup stays looking nice for longer.

Overall I am really loving these products from Bioderma, as they so effective on my blemish prone skin, and yet are so gentle. I also love the fact that they are all free from parabens and AKN

When I started using these, my skin was going through a very bad patch, but I am convinced that using these helped get it back under control again. My skin is still not perfect, so I can see myself continuing to use these products, as well as there are several other products in the range I'm very keen on adding to the routine including the Global Cover, AI and the Serum.
