Bioderma Sebium Serum Review

By Tuesday, July 28, 2015 , , , , , , , , , ,

Today I am reviewing Bioderma Sebium Serum for you. If you have been reading my blog for a while (Thank you so much!! Love you guys!!) then you know that I have already raved about this product in my June favourites here. But still I had to a full review on this one. Last year my skin was not doing so great and I was struggling with blemishes and nothing seems to be working on them. Finally I gave up and visited a dermatologist. She recommended Bioderma Sebium Serum to me and this took care of all the issues and since then I have been using this on and off. Whenever a pesky little pimple comes up I use this and it's taken care of.

Product Description: Smoothing and purifying skin renovator concentrate for combination or oily skin with persistent blemishes. This keratolytic care corrects existing blemishes, smoothes and refines the skin texture through a gentle peeling effect. It evens out irregular countours and re-establishes the skin's natural radiance. Sébium Sérum, associated with the exclusive patented Fluidactiv complex which regulates and stabilizes the quality of sebum and prevents the appearance of blemishes, contains two dermatological active ingredients: glycolic acid which smoothes and purifies, and D-Panthenol which intensely soothes. Its innotivative gel-type texture is well tolerated.

Directions for use:
Apply every other evening to skin that has been thoroughly cleansed with Sébium H2O or Sébium Gel Moussant. For optimal results, use Sébium Sérum as a "cure" for 4 weeks consecutively, either on its own or with your usual overnight care. Avoid eye contour and lips.

Price: 22 USD

Packaging: It comes in a white squeeze tube with a screw on cap. It has pointy nozzle that dispenses the product. 

Performance: It is clear and has a very runny consistency (almost watery). It is recommended applying it after cleansing and toning. After applying this product let it sit for 1-2 minutes and then you can apply your regular moisturiser. It is not recommended to wear a Sebium Serum during the day, because it contains glycolic acid and glycolic acid is photosensitive, which means it can cause spots if you go out in sun. So it is better to apply it during the night, so your skin can recover better. But during the day you should use a face cream or fluid with a high SPF protection of 30 or more.
When I apply this product it gives a very cooling effect and once it gets absorbed I get a slight stretchy feel for that 1-2 minutes I have to wait before applying my moisturiser or maybe it’s just because I have dry/ combination skin and this product is for combination/oily skin. But that stretchy feel is not something my moisturiser can’t handle and once that’s done everything is OK. Now coming to part on how it works on pimples. This works like a dream. I wake up in the morning with much smoother and even looking skin and those pimples are almost gone. If my skin is acting funny and I get those tiny bumps because of hot and humid weather then I use this all over my face on alternate days for a week or two and this does the job for me. Otherwise I use this as a spot treatment for occasional break outs. I thought that this would dry out my skin but surprisingly it has not dried out my skin at all.

The Good:
  • Cooling Effect
  • Clear
  • No fragrance as such.
  • Did not dry out my skin.
  • Effective.
  • Little goes a long way.
The Bad:
  • A bit pricey.
  • Availability is an issue.
No other product has shown such great results on my skin. So I am very happy that I have this in my stash. If you suffer from blemishes then you should try it. It might work for you as well.
