Bioderma ATODERM and SENSIOBIO H2O

After experimenting with many products finally I have some great products for my extreme sensitive skin. I have recently restocked them because I successfully finished the whole products and LOVED IT to core. Yes, I am taking about Bioderma products which I accidentally purchased in a hope of liking them. So what I picked was from their ATODERM range which is especially for DRY TO VERY ATOPIC SENSITIVE SKIN. The products I picked are ATODERM PP Gel Moussant, ATODERM CREAM and got two tiny sample bottles of SENSIBIO H2O

About the range

Through its Atoderm range, BIODERMA has an original solution for very dry to atopic sensitive skin Thanks to its dermo-patented formulas, Atoderm biologically and lastingly restores the hydrolipidic film of skin lacking moisture and lipids.

ATODERM PP Gel Moussant 

About the product

  • Formulated with purifying agents and Vitamin PP, Atoderm PP Gel moussant combats the proliferation of micro-organisms, irritants that aggravate cutaneous dryness.
  • Atoderm PP Gel moussant soothes sensations of discomfort and irritation and helps biologically strengthen the skin barrier.

Instructions for use

Morning and/or evening – 7 days a week

  • Apply Atoderm PP Gel moussant on damp skin.
  • Lather, then rinse thoroughly.
  • Dry gently.
  • Then apply Atoderm PP Baume in the event of a break-out.

Ingredients

QUA/WATER/EAU, SODIUM LAURETH SULFATE, LAURYL GLUCOSIDE, PEG-200 HYDROGENATED GLYCERYL PALMATE, DISODIUM EDTA, PEG-7 GLYCERYL COCOATE, MANNITOL, XYLITOL, RHAMNOSE, FRUCTOOLIGOSACCHARIDES, SODIUM CHLORIDE, ZINC SULFATE, COPPER SULFATE,NIACINAMIDE, CITRIC ACID, SODIUM HYDROXIDE. [BI 655V1]

MY VIEW

The product comes in a steady tube which has 200 ml of product in it. The texture is exactly like a liquidy gel in blue color. The product has no fragrance at all, it all smells like a medicated product which is the most needed thing for my skin type. And yes it is also paraben free, soapfree and hypoallergenic.

Bioderma2

I was suggested this as a face wash but its properties are more like a cleanser. It does lather too like face wash but it gently cleanses my skin. I often use it with my Olay Pro X cleansing system. I like how it massages into my skin. With people having sensitive skin really need a product that give a cooling and soothing sensation and this definitely gives exactly the same. It feels like a cool water and takes away all the irritation and itching that I normally have on my face. I used to scratch my face all day cause of that irritation.

Normally, I don’t like facewash cox I feel they don’t rinse off well and you have to juggle with them but this is super quick. It definitely gives a good moisture to my skin without making it feel greasy.
As I said I have already restocked this product and this is the only facewash/daily cleanser I am using these days.
According to the website instructions it works best with the ATODERM PP BAUME but since I don’t have it I directly apply my Sensibio H20 followed by Atoderm Cream.

ATODERM CREAM

About the product

  • Thanks to its nourishing and restructuring agents, Atoderm Crème biologically strengthens the skin barrier and thereby curbs the penetration of irritants.
  • Enriched with moisturising agents, Atoderm Crème binds water in the upper layers of the skin and keeps it from evaporating.

Instructions for use

Once or twice a day – 7 days a week

  • Apply Atoderm Crème on your skin after cleansing with Atoderm Crème lavante and gently drying.
  • The moisturising effect of Atoderm Crème is optimised if you apply it on lightly moistened skin (after a bath, shower or mist).

Ingredients

AQUA/WATER/EAU, MINERAL OIL (PARAFFINUM LIQUIDUM), GLYCERIN, CETEARYL ISONONANOATE, GLYCERYL STEARATE, PEG-100 STEARATE, MYRETH-3 MYRISTATE, STEARETH-21, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE, MANNITOL, XYLITOL, RHAMNOSE, FRUCTOOLIGOSACCHARIDES, LAMINARIA OCHROLEUCA EXTRACT, CYCLOPENTASILOXANE, CYCLOHEXASILOXANE, TRIETHANOLAMINE, CETYL ALCOHOL, PALMITIC ACID, STEARIC ACID, ACRYLATES/C10-30 ALKYL ACRYLATE CROSSPOLYMER, CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, DISODIUM EDTA, PHENOXYETHANOL, CHLORPHENESIN, SODIUM HYDROXIDE, FRAGRANCE (PARFUM). [BI652V1]

My View

Again a tube packaging, nothing different except a blue lid. The consistency is like a normal moisturizer not so thick not so liquidy and yes again this one is fragrance free too.

Bioderma1

I have no idea what type of formula it is but it is remarkably hydrated. A small amount goes a long long way. I love to apply it on my face and sometimes body before going to bed . It smooths the skin with adding a softness to it. When I say I have a dry skin this means I have a super duper skin. My cheeks get flaky with dryness, they get rough and hard to touch. This creme also help with the dry flakes and it last pretty longer than other moisturizer I tried. The product tends to get absorbed into my skin and also sticks to the skin without being greasy (I hope this make sense). I can easily apply my foundation afterwards and it really helps me in blending it.

Like the gel this also helps in calming down the irritation and itchiness on my skin. One of the best I tried so far. At least I can use it without fearing of break out.

Sensibio H2O

About the product

It is the 1st and only dermatological micellar water perfectlyCOMPATIBLE with the skin: its fatty acid esters, the constituent elements of micelles, are similar to the phospholipids of the skin cell membranes
and naturally help rebuild the skin’s hydrolipidic film.

Instructions for use

Morning and/or evening – 7 days a week

  • Soak a cotton pad with Sensibio H2O.
  • Gently cleanse and/or remove make-up fromYOUR face and eyes.
  • Re-apply until the cotton pad becomes clean.
  • Lightly dab your face with a clean cotton towel.

Ingredients

WATER (AQUA), PEG-6 CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC GLYCERIDES, CUCUMIS SATIVUS (CUCUMBER) FRUIT EXTRACT, MANNITOL, XYLITOL, RHAMNOSE, FRUCTOOLIGOSACCHARIDES, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, DISODIUM EDTA, CETRIMONIUM BROMIDE.

My View

This I got as a sample from the sales girl. She gave it to me saying it works great as a toner. And almost half of my bottle I used it as a toner. It gives a gentle cooling sensation to the skin. Later on, I found out that it is basically a makeup remover especially for sensitive skin. I still use it as a toner as well after using my ATODERM GEL Moussant.

Bioderma3

I always prefer a water based makeup remover and I was using the bodyshop one before this but ever since I have started using this I don’t think I need anything else. Makeup removing was never this easy. It works great with cotton pads but in case you are out of cotton you can use it with tissue paper as well. Oh yes!! it is that good. They have named it H2O and yes it is water completely. No color, no fragrance, crystal clear and yes paraben free too.

Whenever I have used a water based makeup remover I have always feel dryness on my skin which is okay cox you ultimately have to apply a moisturizer but just to tell how good it is I never feel dryness with this magical water. You don’t even need to wash the face afterwards.

I have recently purchased its bigger bottle and will keep on buying forever I guess. I also want to try out their other products from this range like SENSIBIO DS+ GEL and SENSIOBIO TOLERANCE +

I got these products from Scensation, Dolmen Mall Clifton. They don’t have the entire range like I couldn’t find the Sensibio full range except for the Sensiobio H20. But still these all products are available there in a very good and reasonable prices.

Love Organic Pakistan- Rosehip Oil

Organic Products has taken a huge hype in Pakistan weather in fruits and vegetables or skin care. Love Organic Pakistan has started providing some really effective skin care products and today I am sharing its Rosehip Oil. So before I proceed its important to know what exactly Rosehip Oil is.

Rose hip seed oil is a pressed seed oil,extracted from the seeds of a wild rose bush (Rosa moschata or Rosa rubignosa) in the southern Andes. Rosehip seed oil can also be extracted from Rosa canina, which grows in many regions of the world including South Africa and Europe.

My View

Due to my sensitive skin, I always want natural or medicated products for my skin. Especially when it comes to skin care. Products should be fragrance free. The artificial fragrance always break me out.

It’s been a long time I received this product and when I was using it in start my skin was all clear. It felt silky smooth on my skin and I loved how my skin looked fresh. Few days back I had a bad break out and I thought I should stop using it. I didn’t want to take any risk but then I thought this is the right time I should test it. And thank GOD I used it. OMG, I actually saw a major difference. My breakout started getting heal. And now alhumdulillah the major break outs are gone and I am only left with tiny dots and marks. I hope to get rid of them before December .. I mean no bride will look good with spot marks..

The weather is really dry these days especially in Karachi and this oil is perfect to use. It moisturizes the skin without being sticky and oily. It absorbs into the skin leaving it to breathe even. I like to use it at night so that my skin can enjoy this amazing oil whole night ;). The best part the oil can also be used on hands and feet.

The recent packaging of the product has improved alot. I really hope best of luck for the company. 🙂

Salicylic Acid

Don’t you just hate acne?

Don’t you wanna get rid of it?

We all face acne/pimples at almost every stage of our lives and then we have to avoid makeup as its a believe that makeup will provoke the acne.

The ingredient i will talk today is the Salicylic Acid.  This ingredient really helps in preventing the acne. It is an exfoliant which helps in shedding away of dead skin cell.

How does it work?

The important question how does it work , this penetrate into the follicle(spherical group of cells) which encourage in shedding the dead skin cells and clears the pores of the skin. It prevents from blockage of pores and breakouts in skin.

Salicylic Acid in makeup

This important ingredient also come in cosmetic brands, so whenever we go through an acne period of our lives we can switch to those brands. The product i use for the acne is Clinique Acne Solution which i will be reviewing soon.

The brands which contains this ingredient in their products are:

  • Clinique
  • Neutrogena
  • Dermalogica
  • Circadia
I am sure there will lot more brands using this ingredients.
Expected Side Effects
 
Besides the positive side there is always another side and is the side effects. Salicylic Acid do have negative aspects as well.
  • Burning of skin
  • Dryness
  • Irritation
  • Peeling
  • Flaking of skin
Any of these side effects can be controlled by using a good oil free skin mosturizer.
