If you struggle with angry spots and persistent blackheads, then you’re going to want to keep reading. And if you’re already a fan of Bioderma’s spot-clearing Sebium range, you definitely need to read on. Why? Because I’ll be filling you in on the 2022 addition to the range: the Bioderma Sebium Intense Purifying Foaming Gel. A facial cleanser with proven results, it offers a deep cleanse that unclogs your pores without leaving your skin feeling tight or dry.

I’ve been putting it to the test, so I can answer every single question you might have on the Bioderma Sebium cleanser – from what it smells like to how it feels. I’ve loved using Bioderma’s cleansing gel on my face, but I’ve also used it to clear up breakouts on my chest and arms – and it’s fair to say I’m impressed.

Intrigued? Read on to find out more with my Bioderma Sebium Foaming Gel review…


The Most Important Thing About This Cleanser Is…

The Sebium Cleansing Gel is designed to clear blemish-prone skin, while being gentle enough for those with sensitivity. The gel targets inflammatory spots and reduces blackheads, harnessing the power of two active ingredients to unclog your pores and reduce oily shine. In fact, it’s shown to reduce inflammatory spots by 32% and blackheads by 17%.

The cleanser can be used to target active breakouts as an everyday cleanser. Then, when your spots clear, it’s great to use once or twice a week as a spot preventer. Plus, the cleanser helps strengthen your skin’s tolerance to reduce future breakouts.

What Skin Type Is It For?

Any skin type – including sensitive – can enjoy Bioderma’s cleanser if your main skin concerns are blemishes and blackheads.


You Will Love This If…

If you’re looking to clear breakouts and maintain clear skin, you need to try the Sebium cleansing gel. Compared to other gel-based cleansers, this Bioderma face wash feels ultra-lightweight and leaves your skin feeling fresh and clean – without the tightness or irritation that some blemish products can cause. I also love the Sebium Lotion and Anti-Blemish Care, and this cleanser is the perfect addition to my spot-fighting skincare routine.


Hero Ingredients:

The gel combines the cleansing power of salicylic acid and glycolic acid. Salicylic smooths away spots and marks, while glycolic acid offers a deep cleanse; it unclogs blocked pores and removes blackheads whilst Bioderma’s fluid gel texture and nourishing foam finish prevents your skin from feeling dry.


What Does It Feel Like?

The cleanser feels cool on your skin, starting out as a liquid gel texture. As you massage the gel between wet hands before applying, it forms a smooth lather with tiny bubbles that pop as you apply it to your skin. It leaves your face feeling so smooth and soft.

What Does It Smell Like?

There’s a very subtle fresh and clean scent here, almost like cucumber. This fades as soon as you add more water to rinse off the cleanser.


How Do You Use The Product?

Lather the gel between wet hands and massage onto your skin. Rinse with warm water. You can use it as a daily cleanser both morning and night when dealing with breakouts, or as a spot-prevention cleanser once or twice a week.


What’s Special About The Design?

The vibrant green bottle makes a cool addition to your bathroom. The soft squeeze tube design is easy to use, especially if you’re using it in the shower to clear breakouts on your body.



The formula has been dermatologically-tested.
