If You Have Sensitive Skin You Need This Cleanser

By  |  0 Comments

I have dry skin that’s also sensitive. Gel cleansers strip my skin and make me feel tight, so I’ve had to switch to micellar water and oil cleansers. I was really curious when I received Bioderma’s Sensibio Mild Cleansing Foaming Gel because I don’t really use gel cleansers anymore, and it’s related to the wonderful Sensibio Micellar Water. I wondered if this cleanser would live up to its famous cousin?


The Promise

Sensibio Gel Moussant gently cleanses and removes make-up from face and eyes while soothing and calming irritations. Gently cleanses and removes make-up from face and eyes, leaving skin clean, soft and comfortable Moisturises: +77% hydration* Soothes and calms irritations 100% excellent skin and eye tolerance Its exclusive DAF complex is an association of active ingredients which reinforces the tolerance threshold of all sensitive skin. Enriched with Coco Glucoside/ Glycéryl Oléate; an active ingredient that mimics the skin structure, Sensibio Gel Moussant has lipid-restoring and moisturising properties.

Soap-free, fragrance-free, paraben-free, colourant-free, hypoallergenic, physiological pH, non-comedogenic.

The Packaging

I’m a sucker for pink, so I absolutely love the bottle. It’s fantastic because the pump system pumps out EXACTLY the right amount of product you need – no less and no more and no wastage. Yay!

The Scent

There’s no scent at all. It’s always nice to have a pretty smelling cleanser, but that can lead to irritation, so I get where Bioderma is coming from.

The Texture

The gel is clear and lightweight and lathers into a light airy foam. You’d be wrong if you’re thinking traditional foamy, mousse texture. It’s a gel that is bought to life by water. It is quite ‘thin’ and I don’t think it would work well on a Clarisonic or other cleansing gadgets. This gel is for good old fashion hand cleansing.

The Verdict

This is a good, fragrance-free, paraben-free face wash and I would definitely repurchase. It removes eye makeup well but does sting a bit if you get it in your eyes. I am so happy with the way that it removes makeup and my skin has been completely blemish-free since I’ve started using it. If you’re finicky about cleansing, perhaps you could use that as step 2 of your double cleansing routine. It never leaves my skin tight. Other sensitive skintypes should also be safe with this cleanser. I love it.

Available from selected Dis-Chem stores, independent pharmacies and online here for a RRSP of R210.
