Facial Cleanser Review : Bioderma Purifying Foaming Gel

When it comes to gentle cleansing, Bioderma's Purifying Foaming Gel has proven its worth to me. Last week I had a severe allergic reaction from a sunscreen that I was using. My eyelids and the skin around my eyes became red, swollen and dry. I had rashes on my face and neck. I had to stop using all products in my current skincare because they further irritated my skin. The only thing that I was able to continue using was this cleanser. 

It is so gentle, I was able to continue washing my face with it twice a day. I was even able to use it around my eyes. I did not feel any stinging or burning sensation while using the cleanser and it never dried my skin. I had to use products that I would not nomally apply on my face and I was concern about having clogged pores and breaking out on top of my allergies. I believe that being able to properly cleanse my face prevented this from happening.

My skin is in a much better condition now, but not yet back to it's normal state. I'm about to run out of the cleanser and I'm definitely repurchasing.


  1. I'm sorry to hear about the allergic reaction! I've had a few myself and they are HORRIBLE. Especially the after effect of healing and getting back to a state of normalcy. This cleanser sounds pretty amazing. Is it something you purchase online, or can it be bought in stores, as far as you can tell?

  2. @Mandy, you're right about allergies, I still have some flaking and hyperpigmentation from the rash :(. I bought the cleanser at a drug store. My local Boots carry the brand. Bioderma is the same company that makes the famous Crealine H2O(now called sensibio H2O). I opted to get Sébium foaming gel beacause I wasn't sure I wanted a no-rinse cleanser. I'm really glad I had this handy at that time, it helped a lot.
