Bioderma Sebium Gel Moussant

Bioderma has some impressive products which I have tried in the past. Recently, I was on the hunt for a new face wash, and I came across yet another product from this brand. It had amazing reviews online, so I figured it should work for me too. The product claims to eliminate the excess sebum and purify the epidermis. With that being said, I went ahead and tested it out for you guys.

How to Use The Product

Take a small amount of product on your palm and apply it on wet skin. Work the facewash on the skin and rinse well. You can dry with a towel.

Pros of Bioderma Sebium Gel Moussant:

  • The face wash cleanses well.
  • It is non-comedogenic and works well on a combination and oily skin types.
  • The cleanser is very gentle in nature.
  • The packaging is travel-friendly.

Cons of Bioderma Sebium Gel Moussant:

  • The fragrance is overwhelming. Even after using it for about a month, I did not get accustomed to it.
  • I did not think it was very effective to control the oil secretion on my skin.
  • It is a little expensive for its size.

Price of the Product and Packaging

The product is priced at INR 840 (approx. USD 11) for 100 ml. It comes in a clear tube. The product comes in multiple sizes. I purchased the 45 ml tube for trying purposes, which is extremely travel friendly as it is compact in size.

The Product

The facewash has a thin gel consistency and has a blue color to it. I think copper sulfate might have something to do with it. You need just a little bit, about a pea size amount, and that covers your entire face. The facewash does not really lather once you put it on, but it applies easily to the skin. The product itself is lightweight and has a strong fragrance to it.

Personal Opinion of Bioderma Sebium Gel Moussant

The cleanser is very gentle on the skin and also cleans well, but I doubt its efficacy and longevity. I have read great reviews about the product and have seen this work for a lot of people. The fragrance of the product is really overwhelming, and I really wish this product was fragrance-free.

Overall, I would like to give it a 3 out of 5.

About Bioderma

In 1977, pharmacist Jean-Noel Thorel started the Bioderma brand, and Bioderma has come a long way since then. Throel came up with a skincare line in collaboration with renowned biology and dermatology specialists.

The idea behind the skincare range was that the product should not treat the skin; rather, the range should work with the skin's biology to repair and improve the skin's function. Today, Bioderma has over 50 patents.
