Bioderma Hyrabio Hydrators Review

IMG_8706_zpsknliwnva

When it comes to choosing skincare, hydration is on par with anti-aging as my top priorities. When the skin is well hydrated, the skin becomes soft, smooth and radiant.

I am going to talk about Bioderma Hydrabio Range in this post.

Mmmm.. Can you spot the new items in Bioderma Hydrabio range? There are three new hydrators to spot!





Bingo if you got them right!

They are Hydrabio Perfecteur SPF 30 PA+++ ($49.90), Hydrabio Gel-Creme ($41.90) and Hydrabio Creme ($44.90).

They are the new generation of hydration because it goes deeper into the skin with they new patented technology – AQUAGENIUMⓇ and physiological lamellar emulsion.

The three main ingredients are:

  • Vitamin PP, which stimulates the production of ceramics which can help traps the water
  • Apple Seeds Extract, which stimulates the skin’s natural production of aquaporins or water channels that aids in water distribution across different layers
  • Glycerin, which restores the natural moistening factors capacity to retain water


Hydration is not just on the skin surface. It is an inside out affair. You need to keep the deeper layers hydrated as well.

Let me bring you through the three new products and MY MOST FAVOURITE ONE later!

Bioderma Hydrabio Creme comes with a spatula.





Although the word creme sounds thick but it has a surprisingly lighter texture than normal creme-based skincare.

I used this for my night-time regime because I am currently using the Perfecteur and Gel-Creme for my daytime regime.

Other than the usual hyaluronic acid which you can find in most hydrating products, you can also find powerful hydrating agents like glycerin, sunflower seed oil, rapeseed extract and squalane in the creme. With such intense moisturization, you are bound to wake up with a more supple and radiant-looking face.





The next two are my most favourite among the range (even though I really do like the serum too).

You know when you layer too much products on the face, the skin will get too greasy and sticky. That’s the part I hate most. I have to spend extra time to wait for the skin to absorb the skincare in before I can start doing my make up.

Perfecteur SPF 30 PA+++ is actually my one-step base on my lazy days because other than being a sunshield, it can also act as a moisturizer and a primer!!





This is the texture of the Perfecteur. Before I spread the perfecteur, you can see a pink tint which will give us a more rosy look.

The texture is thinner than it looks and it gets absorb so quick that before you even realize it, your face is already silky smooth!

Anti-oxidants such as Vitamin E and arginine can also be found to provide protection against free radicals to prevent premature aging.





Thanks to the blurring primer effect, my hand look so smooth! You can’t even see the lines on the middle right? This is a cheattttt!! You don’t even have to beautify your pictures when you have this!!!





The last addition is the Gel-Creme. Like the bottled Creme, although it sounded thick, it is not. It has a light and refreshing gel-like texture that is nowhere like how a creme-based skincare should be. In fact, I layered after the serum, before the perfecteur everyday for the last 1 week.

If you want intense, lasting radiance and don’t want to slap your face with too many products, you should totally give this a try.





Let’s also not forget my favourite lightweight serum!





It has a watery texture that works on even the driest skin. Doesn’t it sound awesome?





All the products are already available in stores so please please please do try them out because one should not give good stuffs a miss.

I have dry skin and James has sensitive skin and this range worked very well on us so we would strongly recommend our favorites to anyone who is interested.

Famous Celebrity Makeup Artist, Larry Yeo and me did a Hydrabio Skin Talk at Guardian 2 evenings ago.

If you missed it, there is still another session available next week!

Bioderma’s 20th Anniversary

Heyooooo! It’s Bioderma’s 20th Anniversary for its Sensibio H2O. So guess what’s in store for you guys?

The Sensibio 20th Anniversary Pack-set! Pssst: It’s limited edition!

This set ($40.90) includes a bottle of Bioderma Sensibio H2O, a free cotton pouch and a $5 voucher.

A 500ml bottled of Sensibio H2O already cost $40.90, so this set keeps your wallet healthy and your face happy!

I believe this is easily one of the top favorite make up remover for all the ladies out there due to it’s alcohol, fragrance and soap-free nature.

I would suggest you to stock up on them before the set gets sold out!

They have also came up with a new gentle cleansing milk. I just started using them last week and will be doing a review up really soon so do check back again if you’re a fan of Bioderma.

Watsons Girl’s Day Out 2015

Sponsored

We spent almost 3 hours there and there wasn’t enough time to cover the entire segment as some of the booths were already closing then. But but, it was a Girl’s Day Out indeed! It was held at Serangoon NEX (which was really really really far for me but because it is Watsons, I have to go over no matter what!!), and I lugged home more than 6kg worth of goods! Haha.

By the way, Happy 27th Birthday Watsons!!!

 

Westies unite! We shared a cab home that evening.

 

We were so pampered from head to toes as we were introduced to the latest health and beauty brands be it cosmetics, hair, skincare, inner beauty supplements, health, and a lot of new brands (some can be quite shocking because you will never expect to find it in Watsons). Hahaha. As there were simply way too many many brands to cover (you guys know how big Watsons is right?!), I will only be touching on a few.

I think the girl’s favourite was the L’oreal  Revitalift Magic Blur booth because we can each score a $50 Zalora Gift Card there by posting a selfie with  Magic Blur on our Instagram.

 

It is retailing at $41.90 for a 50ml bottle. It can instantly blurs the look of pores, lines and imperfections. And with prolong use of up to 4 weeks, it is claimed to make your skin feels firmer and lines are reduced for younger looking skin.

Exture: mousse-cream and silky smooth.

 

And for their already famous extraordinary oil, my favourite was their latest range – Fine to Normal Hair SPRAYYYY. Yup, it works like a mist and is light weight.

 

 

I was also very impressed by Cetaphil Cleansing Cloth. And extra set was also delivered to me so I will be doing a review on it separately. I will explain how this saved me after my wisdom tooth surgery!!

 

The were also other new brands like Divinia and more.

I like it’s clean looking packaging and pocket friendly prices. A bottle of Triple Hydration Lotion (200ml) and a Triple Hydration Essence (30ml) are only retailing at $17.90 EACH. I always thought Essence would cost at least $30-40.

 

Okay, then I was attracted to Kustie because of the flower petals. You can find the petals inside the bottle of bath gel. My favourite was the Cherry blossom and Chamomile.  This brand is only exclusively available in Watsons at $19.90/bottle.

 

ASIENCE Inner Rich (Gold) and Nature Smooth (Blue) Ranges  which are already available and retailing from $7.95 onwards.

I have always love how nice ASIENCE products smells like!

 

Kinohimitsu was also another very generous booth. Drinks were served together with their health drinks.

 

That was not all. We were given a box of Kinohimitsu EyeBright and JointPro360 each.  I consumed one sachet of EyeBright on the spot because the lady was saying “you don’t have to mix it with anything else”. The taste was like the childhood crackling candies. It is suitable for everyone because even Vegetarians can eat it safely. I thought it was a little too sweet but they assured me that there was no sugar added. Yay!

EyeBright is retailing at $59.90 ($55.90 introductory price)
JointPro360 at $69.90 ($65.90 introductory price).

 

And here come’s the toothpaste and mouthwash. Honestly, I am perfectly fine with any brands 🙂

 

 

 

 

Energeyes is retailing at $67.90/pair without prescription. This can help block out the harmful lights emitted by your gadgets like phones or iPad. About 50% of harmful blue light will be reduced. My dad is constantly on his iPad till he sleep every night so I thought of giving this to him the moment I received it.

 

Also, SILKYGIRL has hair dye now! Because of it’s current promotion, I bought an additional 2 boxes of dye for my mom. Each box of dye comes with a lipstick inside 🙂 Only $7.90/box.

 

Bioderma, as usual, need no further introduction. But they have a new item this time round – Bioderma Sensibio Lait Cleansing Milk which I thought was superb!! It is as light as milk but it does more than just gentle cleansing, removing the make up from face and eyes.

The people behind the booth were saying that it is ultra clean and you don’t have to double cleanse to remove all make up. I did a demo on my hand after the scribbled some lipstick on it and true enough, it works like magic! Already available in stores for $26.90 (250ml).

 

YUPINZHEN is also exclusively available in Watsons. I had a small bottle to bring back and I noticed the differences. It is filled with jelly-liked bird nest with little rock sugar unlike those big bottles you normally see. Price is a little steep though. 6 small bottles for $95. I guess that’s why it is filled with bird nest instead of the “water”.

 

For shampoo wise, I did not manage to cover everything as it was too late by then and the booths were all closing 🙁

Honeyce is a very very cute brand from Japan with high-quality and carefully selected natural ingredients. It is formulated with eight different types of honey sourced from different parts of the world: Manuka Honey, Raspberry Honey, Clover Honey, Rosemary Honey, Orange Honey, Lemon Honey, Acacia Honey and Blueberry Honey… and suddenly my hair sounds sweet instead of smelling sweet lol!

Each unique product retails at $19.90.

 

Hair Pro is an in-house brand by Watsons. It make use of the Heat Activated Technology combined with non-silicone formulae for healthier hair. The technology can activate ingredients to protect hair against heat damages like curling, blow drying and straightening.

They are also free from Parabens, Mineral Oils, UV Absorbers, Artificial Colorants and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate.

Prices range from $15.90 to $17.90

 

Not forgetting, they have an e-store right now! If you think lugging him 3 bottles of shampoo along with other products are too heavy, head over to their e-store. Spend $80 and they will deliver it over for free!

Bioderma Cleansing Water

I haven’t tried Bioderma Cleansing Water before even though bloggers were always singing praises of them. That is because I usually try whatever is sent to me and would only buy my own cleansing water/milk when I run out of them. Having said that, I have already tried numerous brands and Bioderma is now one of my favorites!

Let us begin by wearing a hairband for the cleansing to take place…

Below are my takes on the different types of cleansing water:

Bioderma Sensibio H2O is also voted Best Beauty Buys Women’s Weekly 2013 winner.

The cleansing water is free of soap, alcohol and fragrance. They have pioneered micellar solutions specially formulated for sensitive, normal to dry skins. Although it can removes water-resistant make up easily, it is gentle and cleanses the face and eyes well.

Micellar are cleansing oils that are suspended in the water. And they are so so so tingy that you do not feel it nor do they leave a greasy after-feel after using the cleansing water. The texture feels just like water! Just soak one cotton pad with the cleansing water and it will remove your entire make up (if you do not apply thick make up).

In case I confuse you, take note of the cap colours. They represent a different purpose.

Bioderma Hydrabio H2O is suitable for sensitive and dehydrated skin. I personally find it similar to Sensibio H2O as both of them are suitable for sensitive skin. However, Hydrabio H2O contains Aquagenium that helps the skin to regain its natural moisturizing and water retention ability which is essential for it’s balance.

Also voted Best Beauty Buys Women’s Weekly 2014!

Bioderma Sebium H2O is perfect for oil or acne prone skin. However, it is not mentioned if you can use it around the eye area. The liquid is slightly blue and has a bit of scent. I love how convenient it is as you do not have to rinse your face after cleansing. Just pat your face dry!

Note: If you have sensitive skin, you may want to try Sensibio or Hydrabio).

Bioderma ABCDerm H2O is also suitable for babies! It cleans the fine and irritated skin of babies and small children and is perfectly tolerated on the skin around the eye areas. Like Sebium H2O, no rinsing off is needed.

My current favourites are Hydrabio and Sensibio. They are also available in smaller bottles and are easily available in leading pharmacies. You can probably try them out by getting a small bottle first. The small bottles are also suitable for travels!
