BIODERMA SEBIUM has developed a range for oil blemished skin. What products does it include and are they good? How to create a routine with them? Find out in my Bioderma Sebium review today, including swatches (before and after), prices & results. I will talk about what each product is supposed to do, if their claims are true or not, if they are worth buying.

BIODERMA SEBIUM REVIEW
In the first place, I have to mention that the products from this range have been well received from the public but there are a few products that raised some issues. I will show you below which are good and which could be made better.
The research behind Bioderma Sebium is complex and this allows for special targeting of skin problems. While the range itself is generally for oily or combination skin, there are also subcategories targeted, as skin weakened by drying treatments, acne-prone skin or blemished skin. In this Bioderma Sebium review, each product will be analysed in term of its efficiency and I will tell you my opinion about it.
BIODERMA SEBIUM H20 REVIEW
The first 3 products are for the cleansing stage. Bioderma Sebium H20 (can be found at https://amzn.to/2mYNP8D) comes in different bottle sizes starting from 100 ml, 250 ml or 500 ml. It is the oily or combination skin version of the classic Bioderma H20. In my article about how to use micellar water correctly I have explained the right way to use them. The Sebium version is nice too and I would recommend giving it a try.
BIODERMA SEBIUM GEL MOUSSANT REVIEW
The next cleansing product is Bioderma Sebium Gel moussant, which is a gel that transforms into foam when applied to damp skin. You lather and then rinse it. It can be used daily instead of micellar water. The gel has ingredients that in time reduce the production of sebum. It is one of Amazon’s products of choice, with rave reviews. You can purchase it at https://amzn.to/2AvSj08. It comes in 3 sizes and different bottles types.
BIODERMA SEBIUM PAIN REVIEW
The third cleansing option is Bioderma Sebium Pain, which is a bar that looks like a soap but it allows purifying the face without soap harsh ingredients. I however do not recommend having the face washed with tap water often, so I would advice you to stick to micellar water instead of the two options above for daily usage. You can use them once a week in my option. Another way however that you can use them daily is for washing your body, especially if you have pimples there. They are very good for that.
(article will be updated with the rest of the information tomorrow)
Global cover is a tinted treatment: a mix of foundation and healing cream. It is based on the Seborestore technology, which wants to make a balance in the sebum production and therefore generating less pimples & blackheads. It comes in a 30 ml tube, in my first photograph below you can see it without the special cap and in the second with it. When you buy, it comes with both.
- Inside the little cap is a mirror + a green solid green concealer that is used to neutralize red areas.
- The product inside the tube is very liquid (so you must take care when getting it out) and it is similar to a fluid foundation.
BIODERMA SEBIUM GLOBAL REVIEW
I have usually clear skin (with a bit of rosacea) so I also made a test on one of my friends, she has darker skin and clogged pores so you can view her results below. We used it for a month (I used it to cover my slight face redness and my friend to cover her spots and pores). For this product we had the same opinion, so please read below:
PROS (things we liked):
- It has a medium cover, as seen in the swatch above. It is buildable but only in two layers, otherwise it starts looking cakey.
- It enhanced the complexion.
- The green hides the redness well and makes pimples look less sore.
MINUS (things that could have been better):
- Just one universal shade which is good for tanned or darker skin tones. If you have light skin as mine, I recommend using the Ivory shade version of another terminologically tested product at https://amzn.to/2Ke5MsQ). If you havemedium skin tone, buy the Light beige or Golden beige version.
- You can get a smooth finish if applied with a Beauty Blender (you can get the original from https://amzn.to/2LIb5Xi). Otherwise, applying it with your fingers or a brush will result in an uneven streaky layer.
BIODERMA SEBIUM ROUTINE AND DISCOVERY KIT
If you are not ready to buy full size products, a great idea is to buy a discovery kit with travel size items. I recommend the one under 10 USD from https://amzn.to/2At8BXA.
If you want to purchase an entire skin routine at full size, saving money by buying them as a set, you can purchase the following combinations:
- the Sebium routine kit (contains H20 micellar water, the foaming gel and the shine-control moisturizer) from https://amzn.to/2KkyiJG
My conclusion is that this is a nice product if you want medium coverage and if you have tanned or a darker skin tone. If you have medium or light skin, I recommend the product from https://amzn.to/2mVrZ5Y as it has 5 shades to choose from.
