❤Bioderma 3 Product Review❤

Hi Lovelies!
I just wanted to apologize for being a little absent on my blog and twitter, but recently I have started a new job and I'm trying to find my feet. I have some pretty tough training coming up soon and a lot of my focus is on getting settled into my new job, but don't worry I won't be absent for long. I just wanted to let you all know though, so that you can understand my situation :). So anyway (onto something more exciting haha)..you know I'm a total skincare junkie without any additional temptations, but when I was asked if I wanted to try some Bioderma products I was really excited. I was especially excited, as Bioderma has been quite a hard brand to get hold of despite there being rumor of them coming to the UK soon. Bioderma have a few products that really do have cult status', so I was even more excited to try some of their Crealine H20 Solution. I also just wanted to let you know that I have been staying with my sister the last two nights and the lighting wasn't the best for the pictures :(.
[Trying out the new Star effect on Pic monkey haha]
Bioderma Sensibo Crealine H20
"Specially formulated for sensitive, normal to dry skins, the Sensibio H2O micelle solution gently cleanses face and eyes. It removes water-resistant make-up.
The micelles contained in its formula effectively micro-emulsify impurities while maintaining the skin’s balance (soap-free, physiological pH)."

I can't believe that it has taken me this long to get my hands on this beauty, but because it was so hard to find I suppose I just kept putting it off. However, I'm really pleased with it so far and think it does a lovely job of taking my make-up off hassle free. Now I'm going to be a lot more busy this is actually like the perfect cleanser for me, as I don't have to spend ages washing it off. It doesn't irritate my eyes in the slightest and there is no greasy feeling after using this cleansing water.. it's great because its literally just like water, but instead of just being plain old water, it does a really lovely job of cleansing and leaving my skin nice and soft.
Bioderma Sebium Pore Refiner
The correcting concentrate improves the appearance of the skin: its texture is more refined, more regular and clearer, and the pores are closed and less visible.
 The exclusive patented Fluidactiv® complex* maintains the quality of the sebum, thus preventing obstruction of the pores. An astringent dermatological active agent refines the skin texture and the antioxidant agents preserve its natural radiance.

 The light, liquid formula of Sébium Pore Refiner instantly melts into the skin and leaves a pleasant velvety finish.

I would say that since I hit 20 my skin went from being normal to more combination and even though I don't really get spots, before I never had any. They say that every 10 years your skin/body changes, so maybe this is why I have seen my skin become a little more oily in some areas. This product is great for mattifying and I prefer to apply it just to my t-zone, as I don't find it as moisturising as I would like for all over my face. However, it does leave my skin a lot less oily and smoother in the area's I put it on. I can't say 100% yet if this has decreased my pores in size, but I haven't had any breakouts or issues since using this product.
Bioderma Sebium Hydra Moisturiser 
This is probably my favourite out of the three, and I think it might be quite a new product which you can find out more about here It has the most beautiful light cucumber smell and its so gentle and refreshing to use after my cleansing routine. Due to it being part of the Sebium range it is quite light weight, which makes me feel that this will be my go to Moisturiser for summer. It's very soothing and I find that it doesn't aggravate my slight redness on my cheeks and forehead. I find that both the Pore Refiner and the Hydra Moisturiser both sit really nicely under my foundation as well.
I thought I would include a swatch to show you all what its like and the Pore Refiner has a similar texture. They blend out really nicely and leave a light moisture to the skin and I'm really enjoying using them at the moment.

I'm really impressed with the Sensibo H20 Cleanser and I do think that its a really lovely hassle free way to remove makeup, without leaving any residue behind. I'm also really getting along with the Pore Refiner and I love that it helps to keep my t-zone oil free, as well as the lovely cucumber scented hydra moisturiser. The only real negative is how hard it is to get these products, but if you can wait just a little longer then you will be able to buy them in the UK. I also think that the price range of Bioderma is really quite reasonable as well for such a good skincare brand.

I would love to know what you think about Bioderma and are you excited that this brand may be coming to the UK soon ? - Don't forget my Chanel, Elemis & John Frieda Giveaway ends this weekend!!

  6. I'm keen to try Bioderma too now that it's landed in the UK, and I'll be interested to see if the crealine solution really is worth the enormous amount of hype it receives. It's funny though, as it's the only product you ever hear about from the brand, so I'd like to see what else they have to offer.

  9. The more I read about the Bioderma Crealine H20, the more I want it! I'm glad that it disappoint and that it was as gentle as water :) The moisturiser looks really good too! Bioderma is very hard to get hold of in Australia too, but glad we have online shopping now!

  10. I've only ever used the Bioderma Créaline H20, would love to try some more from the range at least it's easier to get from the UK so I can stop bribing anyone that goes to France :) Hope the new job is going well!

  11. I am really dying to try out the cleansing water, I have heard so many good things about it. I'm on a spending ban right now but after that I am definitely going to pick this up.
