Summer Skincare: New Bioderma

IMG_2319g ggBioderma recently released 3 new skincare products in Canada! Just in time for Summer when skin is prone to harmful UV rays and really needs that extra bit of care and attention. These products are especially exciting for those skin types who are very intolerant & sensitive.

For those who are new to the Bioderma brand from France – their line consists of 6 different ranges of skincare products designed specifically to suit every different skin type & concern. Bioderma meaning ‘BIOlogy at the service of DERMatology’ covers everything from super sensitive & dehydrated skin to acne-prone and sun damaged. There is a product suitable for everyone.

The 6 different ranges are colour coordinated making it easy to distinguish the products from each line.


This new daily moisturizer is the ultimate choice for intolerant, allergic and hypersensitive skin. It increases the skin’s tolerance threshold, provides intense hydration and eliminates tightness and discomfort instantly.

Although this moisturizer is made for intolerant skin types, it’s perfect for anyone who wants something extremely gentle. It’s fragrance free, paraben free, preservative free and hypoallergenic.



NEW SENSIBIO 3-in-1 CLEANSING MILK ($18.95/250ml)

Bioderma’s new Sensibio 3-in-1 Cleansing Milk is a Cleansing Milk, Toning Lotion & Eye Makeup Remover all in one!

It gently cleanses & removes all types of makeup. Perfect for dry, ultra-sensitive skin that cannot tolerate harsher, standard cleansers.

I have to say, being an oily t-zone skin, I was a bit skeptical in trying this new cleansing milk. I typically stay clear from anything ‘milky’ when choosing skincare products. I always use the Bioderma Sensibio H2O (you can read about previous posts here.) But I was super surprised at just how much I loved this cleansing milk. It’s super easy to use, you apply product on a cotton pad and wipe over entire face and eyes. Yes, even removed my eye make up no problem! It requires no rinsing with water. It left my skin feeling AMAZING. Not sticky, or greasy and didn’t leave a residue at all. I now have 2 favourites! I’ve been using the new milk cleanser at night and the Sensibio H2O in the mornings. – Laura

NEW HYDRABIO H2O (18.95/250ml)

We are so happy that Bioderma introduced a new Micellar Water to their lineup. Their #1 selling Sensibio H2O is one of our all time favourite products.

Hydrabio H20 is a cleansing and make-up removing water that respects the fragility of sensitive skin and stimulates moisture. Hydrabio H2O soothes, decongests & moisturises dehydrated skin.

Much like Sensibio H20, the new Hydrabio H20 has many of the same great benefits and works the same way. Both have a non-rinse formula which cleanses and washes away even water-resistant make-up. They are both also allergen-free, non-comedogenic, & hypoallergenic.

The new Hydrabio H2O is designed for Dehydrated Sensitive Skin, whereas the Sensibio H2O is for Sensitive to Intolerant Skin.


Where to buy:
Available at select Murale, Shoppers Drug Mart, London Drugs & Pharmasave stores across Canada.

Review: BIODERMA 2015


We are no strangers to the French skincare line, BIODERMA. Years ago I went to a training downtown Vancouver when their line was first being launched into the Cosmetic/Skincare company I work for. Since then we have been big fans of numerous products in their line. One of the benefits of working in Skincare and Cosmetics for so long is being privy to so many different products. There are literally hundreds of product choices and you become wise to what’s hype and what’s not. I have honestly never been disappointed after trying any of the Bioderma products.


BIODERMA has been a pioneer in dermatological skincare since the 1970s. Their line consists of 6 different ranges of skincare products designed specifically to suit every different skin type & concern. 

SENSIBIO – sensitive skin
HYDRABIO – dehydrated sensitive skin
AUTODERM – very dry to atopic sensitive skin
SEBIUM – oily blemished skin
PHOTODERM – skin and sun
CICABIO – damaged skin

One of the products that I have continuously used for years is Bioderma’s top-selling SENSIBIO H20 MICELLAR CLEANSING WATER*. It has become the #1 Micellar Water in Canada and they sell 1 every 3 seconds worldwide!

This micellar water is Fragrance, Alcohol and Paraben Free, as well as Hypoallergenic. It removes all makeup including water resistant eye makeup. It is safe for even the most sensitive skin and eyes. It’s so quick and easy which I love. The quicker the better ya know what I mean? You use a cotton pad with the micellar water on it, swipe over your face (and eyes), no rinsing and that’s it. Boom. You’re done. Face is clean.

Even though it totally takes off all eye makeup as well, I still prefer to use a separate eye makeup remover first. It’s mostly just a habit I refuse to change.

I highly recommend this product to clients and friends all of the time. We’ve actually written about this gem of a product previously on our blog, which you can read here.


Fun fact: BIODERMA’s Sensibio H20 Micellar Cleanser won Chatelaine Magazine’s Best Beauty 100 2014 Award as one of their favourite Makeup Removers.


This is their 24hr moisturizing lightly scented body cream. It has moisturizing agents that bind water in the upper layers of the skin which keeps it from evaporating. It is Hypoallergenic, Non-comedogenic and Paraben Free. Completely safe for all skin types.

This cream is also available in a non-scented formula which I always recommend for babies and children. Because this cream has a light scent we preferred to use it during the night when we weren’t wearing any perfumes. Otherwise in the day we chose to use the unscented formula. Regardless of which formula you prefer this body cream definitely does have incredible hydration and is not greasy at all. It is especially great for the colder Winter months.


If you’re like us (no messin’ around, aka lazy) and like the micellar water then you will definitely love these wipes. I am all for anything that is great quality, affordable, and makes my life just a little bit easier. These wipes clean your face completely with a quick and easy swipe. Removes eye makeup also. Talk about easy peasy. They are great for all skin types, even the most sensitive. These wipes are excellent to throw into your bag for the gym and traveling.

A little tip I tell my clients/friends is to store the package upside down so the top wipes stay really moist.


We have made mention a time or 2 in previous posts regarding just how much we loooove our lip products. I’m talkin lip glosses, lipsticks, lip balms, lip glaze… we adore it all & have a serious problem. We both have dry lips ALL OF THE TIME! So we are very happy girls when we come across moisturizing lip products that honestly do what they’re supposed to do – Moisturize.

This ATODERM MOISTURIZING STICK* is highly nourishing with Shea Butter and restores dry, chapped lips immediately. It is Allergen and Paraben free, Hypoallergenic and has a delicious light raspberry scent.

The best thing? It actually does hydrate and you don’t feel the need to have to reapply it a million times throughout the day. This balm is one of Natasha’s favourite Bioderma products.
