It’s been a while since I last shared how I’m treating my dry skin. I know that a few of you also suffer with very dry skin so I hope that this posts helps some of you. If you’re keen to find out more about my other dry skin favourites like this, this and this then let me know and I’ll put together a few more reviews or maybe my morning and evening skincare routine.
Over the last couple of months I’ve been using Bioderma Hydrabio Crème and I quite simply love it. I hadn’t tried anything by Bioderma before, not even their famous micelle water but after having such a good experience with this cream I must change that. Bioderma is a French pharmaceutical company. They create hypoallergenic products and specialise in taking care of those of us with very sensitive skin. Unfortunately I don’t think they’re a cruelty free brand. I’ve had a look but can’t find any solid information.
This quickly became my go to cream for both the morning and the evening. It has a very faint scent, almost non-existent. So there’s no need to worrying about overpowering fragrances which can often irritate dry and sensitive skin. I can confirm that I haven’t had any reactions to it throughout the two months that I’ve been using it. It’s also paraben-free and non-comedogenic (which means it won’t cause blocked pores).
It’s a lovely thick cream and a little goes a long way. I found that it absorbed into my skin quickly and made me feel immediately hydrated. The hydration lasts through ’til the morning. The product isn’t sticky or greasy at all which makes it ideal for using before applying make-up.
It contains alicylic acid which is said to smooth skin and encourage a long-lasting radiant complexion. I have found that my skin feels lovely and smooth at the moment which has made a nice change. It also contains vitamin E which is said to help against ageing.
I’ve really enjoyed using this during the transition from winter to spring and would happily repurchase.
