You finally did it. You went berserk on your poor skin, throwing on every active skincare product within reach. Your face is now a hot mess of bumps, redness, sore patches and it cannot tolerate anything at this point. How could the internet lie with a foolproof 20 step regimen to clear glass skin? Overdoing it is like taking the expressway there. Stripping back to the bare essentials of cleansing and moisturizing is a must in order to restore that compromised protective barrier. If your skin’s natural defense system is down, you’re letting the bad guys, like bacteria, in with a free pass.
The famous French pharmacy method of cleansing is based on being gentle. From milk to balm and that wonderful Bioderma micellar water, there is a solution for everyone. Building on their know-how in the micellar department, a gel textured cleanser with added vitamin E has joined the lineup. The inclusion of coco glucoside and glycéryl oléate helps to keep your skin hydrated, which is why your skin doesn’t feel like it’s being stretched out afterward. You could say this cleanser is geared towards the sensitive skin type being part of the Sensibio range, but anyone can benefit from something gentle that doesn’t sting the eyes. A light foaming gel that has a gelatinous texture once it comes into contact with water, readily removed with a few splashes of water. However, this will not remove makeup or sunscreen properly, let alone anything waterproof.
I used this travel-size tube up quite quickly with twice a day usage—if I were to get the 500ml bottle it could even double up as a shower gel for the whole family. Highly recommended for any skin type or age, especially if you’ve been overdoing it with actives and acids.
