I bet if you asked 100 girls and women what their top 3 insecurities are, at least 90 would mention their skin. It’s just a fact of life. We deal with pimples, blackheads, clogged pores, fine-lines, wrinkles, dry skin, oily skin…you name it, we’re frustrated by it. #thestruggleisreal
In all seriousness though, it’s exhausting. I’ve never dealt with chronic acne (and still don’t) but my breakouts have become more frequent over the past 6 months and I’m not happy about it. Finding a product that actually makes a difference has proven more difficult than I ever thought. My skin is sensitive and combination- thank you, genes. After hearing/reading about the magic of Bioderma for months, I finally got my hands on a bottle. And let me tell you, the hype is well-deserved.
Description: Bioderma is a soap-free, alcohol-free, and fragrance-free gentle cleanser that removes makeup (even waterproof), soothes and cleanses skin, and prevents irritation. It leaves skin feeling clean, refreshed, and restores its natural balance.
Directions: Soak a cotton-pad in the solution and gently wipe over face and eyes.
Review: Bioderma comes in a variety of formulas for different types of skin- I went with Sensibio (for sensitive skin) because my skin seemed to fit into that category the most. My grandparents actually picked it up for me while on vacation in Europe and joked that it was “the most expensive bottle of water they’ve ever bought”. And considering it does just look like water, I understand.
I decided I was mainly going to use it like a toner to ensure that I was getting all of the makeup off of my face before I cleansed. I removed [what I thought was] all of my makeup with one of these wipes and then gently swept my face with a cotton pad soaked in Bioderma. When I looked down at the pad I couldn’t believe my eyes- it was covered in makeup. No wonder my pores are clogged!
I’ve been using this every night since I received it and the breakouts around my chin and t-zone are already clearing up. It’s amazing. And since I haven’t changed anything else about my skin-care routine, I know that it’s solely because of this product. I can’t recommend it enough.
Where To Buy: Unfortunately, Bioderma isn’t sold in the United States. It can be purchased online via Amazon or Ebay. Visit their website to see a full list of countries where it’s manufactured and sold.
Rating: 9 out of 10 –> Only knocked down because of the price and inconvenience of buying in the United States. Other than that, I have no complaints and will definitely be ordering it again!
Here’s to products worth the hype…
