Bioderma Essentials

I've been going through my skincare bits like a bolt of lightning – I must have used up more than seven products until now since summer. From three L'Occitane body oils (Aromachologie, Almond Supple Skin and Shea Fabulous), L'Occitane Shea body souffle to Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse, Dr.Hauschka Day Cream, all of my shower gels (I am having a real Balea moment), Body Drench Raspberry body scrub, all of my L'Occitane hand creams, Garnier micellar water, grapeseed & hazelnut oils which I used to remove make-up, Oskia Renaissance Cleansing gel etc. 

After all that skincare clean-up, I was left pretty much without a cleanser. I still have left some of my Alpha-H Balancing mild and creamy cleanser but I need something more heavy duty for make-up removal purposes. After much consideration, I've decided to repurchase my beloved Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution 500ml (aka micellar water). It's the best one I've ever tried, by far. Gentle towards sensitive eyes yet extremely effective at removing stubborn mascara and long-wearing foundation. Leaves no sticky residue, has no funky smell and the 500ml bottle will see me through the end of year, perhaps beyond.

After sweeping my face with this micellar gem, at night I like to go over with a second cleanse and for that I usually use the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Foaming cleansing gel. I've used up probably bottle number nine or something and felt like I'm ready for a slight change. That's why I opted for Bioderma Sebium Purifying Cleansing Foaming Gel 200ml. Right off the bat, I'll tell you what I dislike about it in comparuson to my LRP fave – it gets used up more quickly.

It's of a bright blue coloring, fruity fresh scent and a bit runny texture. One pump does my entire face and the product itself isn't wasteful, I just think a bigger packaging would be a more suitable offering without slapping a higher price tag on this one. It isn't ace at removing eye make-up but it's quite good for a refreshing second cleanse or a morning wash session. My skin isn't oily anymore and it leans towards dehydrated if anything but it still is prone to clogging. I don't find this face wash performs exorcism on my blemishes but it certainly keeps things under control. It isn't drying but I suspect I'll need an oil-based make-up remover later on as well. Although not perfect, this face wash is exactly what I need in my combo/dehydrated skincare arsenal.

What are your Bioderma essentials – any recommendations?

  • U posljednje vrijeme sam dosta efektna po pitanju trosenja preparativnih proizvoda – sigurno sam do zadnje kapi potrosila vise od sedam komada tokom ljeta pa sve do danas. Od tri L'Occitane ulja za tijelo (Aromachologie, Badem i Shea Fabulous), potom L'Occitane karite suflea za tijelo do Nuxe multiprakticnog ulja, Dr.Hauschka dnevne kreme za lice, pozamasne zalihe tusiralica (trenutno me Balea odusevljava), Body Drench malinasto fantasticnog pilinga za tijelo, visestrukih L'Occitane krema za ruke, Garnier micelarne vode, ulja od grozdja i ljesnika koje sam koristila za skidanje sminke, Oskia Renaissance balzama/gela za umivanje itd.
  • Nakon tako temeljite cistke moja preparativna kolekcija je prilicno opustosena i doslovno sam morala ici u kupovinu necega novog. Ostalo mi je jos malo Alpha H balansirajuce, kremaste umivalice ali volim imati nesto dodatno za skidanje sminke sa cijelog lica. Nakon mnogo premisljanja, odluka je ponovo pala na Bioderma Sensibio H2O micelarnu otopinu 500ml (cca 24KM u apoteci, Alta centar Sarajevo). Od svih micelarnih vodica koje sam isprobala, ona je ubjedljivo najbolja. Njezna spram osjetljivih ociju, jako ucinkovita po pitanju otklanjanja okoloocne sminke i pudera. Ne ostavlja ljepljivi sloj na kozi, nema cudan miris a bocica od 500ml ce mi trajati do kraja godine, mozda i duze.
  • Nakon sto prodjem prvi korak u uklanjanju sminke sa micelarnom vodom, volim dodatno lice ocistiti umivalicom po izboru. Obicno sam vjerna La Roche-Posay Effaclar pjenusavoj umivalici ali nakon potrosenih devet ili cak vise tuba, pozeljela sam promjenu. Odlucila sam se za Bioderma Sebium prociscujuci pjenusavi gel 200ml (cca 28KM u apoteci, Alta centar Sarajevo). Odmah cu vam reci sta mi se ne dopada kod njega u poredjenju sa LRP umivalicom – trosi se previse brzo za moj ukus. 
  • Sama tekstura umivalice ne zahtijeva je kolicinski mnogo po koristenju i samo jedna pumpica je dovoljna za temeljito ciscenje cijelog lica. Plave je boje, svjezeg vocnog mirisa i pomalo vodenaste formulacije. Naprosto mislim da uz takvu formulaciju ekonomicnije djeluje veca mililitraza ali po postojecoj cijeni (to bi je barem u mojim ocima ucinilo privlacnom). Nije vrhunski skidac sminke ali je za drugo ciscenje (npr.nakon micelarne) idealan ili za jutarnje umivanje. Moja koza vise nije masna vec je mozda ponajvise dehidrirana no ipak sklona zacepljenju pora sa vremena na vrijeme. Ne mislim da Bioderma umivalica uklanja bubuljice ali svakako da postojece drzi pod kontrolom. Ovaj gel za umivanje mi ne isusuje kozu no pretpostaviti cu da cu tokom zimskih mjeseci pozeljeti nesto na bazi ulja. Iako ne mogu reci da je idealan, Bioderma Sebium gel je trenutno ono sto mi kozi odgovara.
  • Da li vi u svojoj rutini ukljucujete Bioderma proizvode, mozda mi mozete nesto preporuciti?
