Review: Bioderma Sensibio Soothing Mask

Monday, March 10, 2014
Bioderma is one of my favourite skincare brands, I have been using Bioderma Sebium Micelle Solution to remove my makeup for about three years now (on and off) and I adore it - I bought a two 500ml pack while on holiday in Corsica for around €15 which is incredible. But Bioderma is not that widely available at all in the UK but I recently found a fantastic website full of french skincare such as Bioderma and so much more - it is Farmaline.co.uk. I was very kindly sent a few items to review from Farmaline although this does not affect my opinion of the brands/products, for more information about my disclaimer, click here.

Farmaline is a pharmacy that ships to the UK at really low prices - so much cheaper than French online pharmacies - approx. £6/7 shipping or delivery is free if you spend £75. Farmaline is based in Belgium and the delivery was very fast!
I am a massive fan of French skincare from Bioderma and Caudalie to Vichy, Avene and Aderma - all of which are sold by Farmaline. For this review I have the *Bioderma Sensibio Soothing Mask for sensitive and intolerant skin (75ml, £13.48). I have tried a few products from Bioderma such as the Sebium micelle solution, Hydrabio micelle solution, Atoderm PO Zinc Soothing Cream and the Atoderm foaming gel - all of which I love.

I haven't tried a new face mask (or any actually) for a long time as I had a very bad experience with the I Love...Strawberries Mask last year - I would never recommend that mask, it ruined my skin for about a month! Anyway, I have tried a few Bioderma products before so I wasn't worried about this one at all, Bioderma is a fantastic brand for sensitive skin. I have used this mask four times and I love it. It just looks like a white cream moisturiser and you apply a layer after cleansing and let it absorb for about 10 minutes then wipe off the excess. I use the Avene water spray on a cotton pad to remove it.

I find this mask does not irritate my skin at all! It feels nice and smooth on the skin, it doesn't really have a scent to it and the mask is very quick and easy to use. There is no mess with this mask, it is a cream and once it has absorbed it leaves my skin feeling soothed, moisturised and nourished. Overall, I am very happy with this mask, it is fantastic for sensitive and dry skin types. I would highly recommend it, I will be buying a new tube from Farmaline when this one runs out. ★★★★★, 5/5.

Have you bought anything from Farmaline before? Have you tried any products from Bioderma?

  1. Try sleeping in the mask, it's what I do sometimes and it's very good as an after-sun treat. Let me know if you need any more help ;) x

  4. Ooh, I will definitely be checking out this mask thanks to your review! I'm a huge fan of masks, Kiehl's makes some great ones, and so does this organic brand called Sukin. Lush masks are a hit and miss for me, but I like that they are made with less preservatives.

  6. Sounds like a great mask and good for sensitive skin! Removing it with Avene Thermal Spring Water sprayed onto a cotton pad is a really handy tip as well :)
