I know I am veeeeeeeereery late on this one as it is a total cult within the blogosphere and YouTube beauty gurus out there. However I have to confess I tend to scare away from trying anything that is going through a big buzz out there because I end up putting my expectations so high I almost always end up disappointed. What I generally do is simple: I wait... Patiently!
Here is the idea behind holding back: if it's just a fashion it fades and if it is a truly amazing product it stays!
Bioderma was in vogue for two trends: the whole "eau micellaire" hype and then the amazing capacity to transform your skin gently.
I had tried other cleansing waters and although I like the refreshing feeling of the water I wasn't really impressed with the efficiency or even the effects on my skin. Hence why I let it to rest for a while longer before hitting the counter and getting it!
With summer my skin gets really sensitive and reactive, the heat makes me sweat wich is good to eliminate toxins but when it comes to my skin it just ends up in at terrible state: dry but prone to blemishes and very, very sensitive ! T.T
As I was in France recently and saw a discount on the green Bioderma (the one for greasy and combination skin) I decided to give it a good try!
Well guys, hats up, down and center: it is AMAZING!
I saw a difference on my first application! My skin felt refreshed and soothed almost instantly. My blemishes (which were very sore!!) just seemed to calm down on each application and started fading away!
For a few days I kept applying it morning and evening and if I felt a sore blemish or if it was very warm, I'd just pat my skin with some more on a cotton pad.
My skin is calmer and softer. And the blemishes seem to be less frequent and less active.
It's definitely a thumbs up!!
