BioDerma SkinScience Launches in Ireland

Recently I had the pleasure of attending BioDerma's skincare launch in Residence members club just off Stephen's Green. BioDerma was not a brand I had previously heard a whole lot about but I was absolutely delighted to go along as I love hearing about new skincare brands and this brand certainly has something to suit everyone.

BioDerma concentrates on four skin concerns and they have the complimentary skincare collections to suit them. Sensibio AR concentrates on those with sensitive skin, the AR stands for anti-rogeurs or anti-redness so would also be recommended for those suffering from rosacea. The Sébium range is focused on those with oily or acne prone skin. Photoderm is focused on skin protection from the sun and finally Atoderm is aimed at those with atopic skin issues such as eczema, severe dryness or psoriasis.

We were of course lucky enough to receive a goody bag with four products from three of the four ranges to try out. I received the Sensibio Anti Redness BB cream, the Sébium pore refiner and the Photoderm Bronz spf 50 tan enhancing mist.

I was excited to try the BB cream as I can never find one that is light enough to suit my skin tone. Unfortunately this BB cream was still a little dark, however in the name of tried and tested I applied my Mac prolongwear concealer on my cheeks and then stippled a light amount of this BB cream across my cheeks, nose, forehead and chin blending them together. I was really impressed with the luminosity and dewiness of this BB cream, it really does look like your skin but better. You can have a better look at what I mean in the picture below.

While I don't have oily or particularly acne prone skin I tried the Sébium pore refiner serum on a mark that a blackhead had left on my skin and it definitely made it less noticeable. This is also marketed as a perfect base under makeup and since I have recently run out of primer I might just try use it as such!
The Sensibio micellar water is a new favourite of mine. You must have been living under a rock at this stage not to have heard of the magic micellar which really is the lazy girls saviour to makeup removal. It markets itself as gentle enough to use around the eyes and best of all you don't have to rinse this off! For better skin it is recommended to remove your makeup with this, and then cleanse with your regular cleanser but one step is better than none. It really does get rid of even the toughest to remove mascara. Best of all the price points for all these products are not too extravagant.
I can't wait to try out Photoderm Bronz on my holidays in Malta...it claims to provide skin protecton of spf 50 and enhance the tan. It says its not oily or sticky but I did spray it on my hand to test this and it seemed quite oily however not sticky. It also smelled gorgeous, so I will be excited to try this out.
All BioDerma products will be available across the country in mainly Lloyds pharmacy and Sam McCauley pharmacies. If you want to find a stockist in your area comment below and I will let you know your nearest stockist for your county.
That's all for now ladies
