When I was first introduced to the Bioderma range, all I knew was the famous Sensibio Micellar solution and I didn’t know much else about the product range. Everytime I am in City Pharma in Paris, I’m always a little bit overwhelmed by the options and various options available for different skin needs.
I am a firm believer of Parisian/Frech skincare brands and technologies. Afterall, most of luxury cosmetic and skincare brands are French-owned, and isn’t the carefree, sophisticated, perfectly imperfect Parisian woman a standard by which most of us aspire to be?
Since it’s been a while since I got to know the brand and its entire range, I thought I would sit down and write out some of my product recommendations for you. The good news is that most of the product range is colour coded so it’s quite easy to narrow down the products in a specific range.
Here’s my ultimate guide to shopping Bioderma’s product range and making sure you’re getting the best of Bioderma’s product range!
If you have…
1. Dry to Atopic Sensitive Skin, try the Atoderm
If you have super dry and atopic skin (i.e. if you have eczema) the super-nourishing Atoderm range for the face, lip and body is the one you should go for. Those with atopic skin will typically have dry, scaly/patchy skin at certain of the year, and is often very itchy and painful.
The Bioderma Atoderm range consist of:
2. Sensitive/Intolerant Skin, try Sensibio
Those with or without sensitive skin can benefit from using the sensitive range, especially during certain times of the year when your skin is more exposed and prone to dryness, and need that extra boost of moisture to calm down redness around the face or the body.
With a full range to cleanse, treat and maintain, here are a few that you might want to give a try!
3. Dehydrated Skin, try Hydrabio
Those with dehydrated skin will feel sensations of tightness, uncomfortable and losing radiance because the skin is unable to generate or retain enough moisture all over the skin. There are plenty of products that promises hydration and extra moisture (my favourite is the hyaluronic acid in the product) but the Hydrabio range is one that actually stimulates the skin’s own capacity to generate moisture on the face.
The full range of the product includes:

4. Damaged Skin, try Cicabio
When your skin is constantly exposed and it is not healthy enough to protect us frm the stresses, it is more prone to damage on the inside and outside, resulting in cuts, irritation, painful, scaly skin. A regular lotion/moisturizer will not be enough to help it heal itself, so the Cicabio range was designed to help irritated skin of various nature, stages, and damage.
5. Oily/Combination skin, try Sebium
My sister has oily/combination skin that seems to suck up the dirt and pollution so much so that you can actually see how dirty her face looks when she doesn’t regularly use a detox mask (charcoal-based is best!) Furthermore, her oily skin makes her so much more prone to acne, so she has to take the extra steps of using a toner and a pore refiner to prevent her skin from soaking up all that dirt.
Fortunately, Bioderma has a complete range of Sebium products that protect the skin from pollutants, and dirt.
6. Looking for Sun Protection, try Photoderm
Sun protection is or everyone and for any age. The Photoderm range includes a full range of products with various SPF power, and an after-sun lotion, a product that I thought was excessive and unnecessary until I experienced first-hand, how hurtful a sunburn can be.
