Are you after a clear, purified and mattified complexion? I’ve put Bioderma’s Sebium Lotion to the test, so you can learn all you need to know about this toner.
The Most Important Thing About This Product Is…
Bioderma’s Sebium toner is a lightweight lotion for oily, combination skin. The toner offers three actions – a boost of hydration, sebum production regulation, and the restoration of the skin’s pH.
You Will Love This If…
We can often be tricked into thinking that people will oily-prone skin never struggle with skin sensitivities, but this is incredibly far from the truth. Oilier skin can still struggle with sensitivities, so if that’s you, and you’re looking for a caring formula, you’ll love the Sebium formula as it’s designed for all combination or oily complexions – even sensitive ones.
The lotion uses skin-quenching glycerin to offer up to eight hours of hydration. Yes, oily skin craves moisture just like every other skin type – while sebum production is effectively regulated for a shine-free finish, thanks to zinc gluconate and vitamin B6.
To complete the lotion’s triple action, the skin’s natural pH gets restored thanks to capryloyl glycine. Simultaneously, there’s an added hidden bonus with agaric and salicylic acid, which help refine skin texture and shrink pores.
But let’s not forget Bioderma’s exclusive Fluidactiv™ patented complex! This unique innovative biologically targets sebum quality to help keep pores clean and clear while reducing the appearance of irregularities.
What Skin Type Is It For?
This lotion is specially designed for combination or oily skin.
What Does It Feel Like?
As soon as you sweep the pore-tightening toner over your complexion, skin feels refreshed and revived. It has a thin, water-like liquid consistency that glides over skin and dries quickly.
What Does It Smell Like?
The toning lotion has a fresh, clean and cooling aroma that refreshes the skin and the senses.
How Do You Use The Product?
Suitable for use from the age of 12 years old and on wards.
Apply to your face after cleansing by massaging into the skin using the fingertips or a cotton pad, taking care to avoid contact with your eyes. Follow with the rest of your skincare routine.
What’s Special About The Design?
The Sebium toner comes in a bright, lime green bottle that continues the cleansing, purifying theme. After you’ve removed the lid, you can tilt the bottle to pour the liquid directly onto your fingers, but I found it a little easier to apply using reusable fabric cotton pad replacements as the lotion is highly liquid.
