I first learned about the skincare brand Bioderma through makeup artist Ting Duque. Before putting makeup on Inquirer Red magazine cover girl Nanette Medved-Po, Ting cleaned Nanette’s face with Bioderma Sensibio Sensitive skin Cleansing H20.
Ting explained that it was a cleansing and make up-removing water. I wanted to try the product. Later I found out my dermatologist had Bioderma so I brought home a bottle. I have since switched to the blue bottle since it is hydrating, too, which I feel is more appropriate for my skin.
I’ve been hooked since. I use it every day as soon as I get home. Sometimes, if I’ve had a long night, I pour it on a cotton swab, wipe my face and go straight to bed.
Sensibio H2O is the first and only dermatological micellar water perfectly compatible with the skin. Its fatty acid esters, the constituent elements of micelles, are similar to the phospholipids of the skin cell membranes, which naturally help rebuild the skin’s hydrolipidic film.
I am partial to pharmaceutical brands because I know they came from outfits that invest in research and development. Though not packaged as nice as other brands, they are more efficient and effective in taking care of our skin, and that’s what matters.
I was eager to try Bioderma’s new product, Hydrabio Perfecteur SPF 30. This protects the skin from the sun’s harmful rays; it also has soft-focus ingredients that help conceal blemishes and wrinkles.
It gives the skin a light iridescence that makes light bounce, helping the skin look glowing and youthful. It can be used as makeup primer, but I prefer mixing one pump to my foundation.
When Bioderma people asked if I could help recommend and introduce its products, I organized an intimate lunch with friends.
Sharing products that I actually use is something I enjoy doing, since I also write about brands that have worked for me anyway.
Bioderma is available at dermatologist clinics, PCX and Watsons.
