If you have active acne or any acne, do not use this product. This product smells nice and it's a decent moisturizer and can be use for sensitive skin but not for acne skin. When i used this product, my acne became so red and irritated. It was terrible and I had to remove it. I thought it was because i was sensitive to this product but i use it on my neck and the areas of my skin with no acne and it seem to be fine. Just be careful when using this product.
I have combination skin and the cold weather just accentuates and worsens my dry areas, which is really annoying because my skin still gets really oily but dry at the same time.
What I like about this product is that it moisturises my skin without leaving my skin greasy and it absorbs quite well and quickly so I use it to prime my face before putting on foundation.
I was actually hoping that it would improve my skin since I do have redness and dry patches but it hasn't made a huge difference. My skin still has redness but at least the dry areas have improved.
I recommend this product but if you can't get hold of it a great if not better alternative (since is has sun protection) might be Eucerin AQUAporin Active Moisturising Cream with SPF 15
I am a big fan of Lisa Eldridge so as she was recommending this for dehydrated skin, I thought I'd give this a try. This is very basic moisturizer and I didn't really think it gave me any extra hydration or anything. It didn't break me out so that's good thing, but other than that I don't think it made much difference. I won't repurchase.
Super light weight... takes 2-3 minutes to fully absorb but it does vanish :)
Smell is light
Feels like a cream-gel
3pumps for pm 2 pumps for am, 1 pump under makeup
Super acne prone... havent noticed any blemishes spark up
Will continue to use this!!
Using this in the winter
I also use benzoyol peroxide products and glam glow masks :)
Update 1 - Skins still looking and feeling happy :)
If you don't breakout from this and only need to use 1 pump to hydrate your face- get this. If you need to use 2 pumps you get that 'coat' on your face that comes from trying to layer on creams that are designed to create a light and dewy feel.
The moisturiser has a slightly watery texture and feels nice on the skin. My skin is currently going through a massive breakout around the mouth, dislikes 'heavy' creams (clogged pores), dry and sensitive. I popped this on - 2 pumps to makes my skin feel adequately moisturised but has a slight 'layer of cones' feeling that Nivea Aquamoist does. Within 10 minutes all my bumps around the mouth turned a bright inflamed red - I quickly washed it off and used a cold compress.
I brought this light cream because it was recommended by Lisa Eldridge's French pharmacy favorites video, her recommendations are very comprehensive & professional. On to the product, it is a light weight cream for sensitive & dehydrated skin, although my skin is mostly oily, I often feel dehydrated in winter indoor heat & outdoor dry weather, I love how lightweight Hydrobio Legere is, it penetrates really quick & well, it doesn't break me out or make me feel greasy, it provides lightweight, breathable moisture. I use Hydrobio Legere on top of La roche posay's Effclear Duo, I noticed that my skin is less oily & less tight after changing to this routine. Hydrobio Legere doesn't promise a million things (whitening, anti-aging, firm, etc) but it does the basics exceptionally well! Too bad Bioderma's products are hard to find in the U.S.
An effective, soothing, gentle basic moisturizer. I've found it's very similar to La Roche Posay's Hydreane Legere (a product I really like). I'm 37 and have dry skin, and this has worked really well for me this summer. It doesn't make me greasy and hasn't caused any break outs. But, then again, I'm 37 with dry skin.
It seems to work well with my other skincare: I've come to prefer basic moisturizers (generally of the French pharmacy variety) coupled with sunscreen, serums and other specialized products targeting whatever issues I'm having. This fits the bill.
I got this as part of a sample kit (with Sensibio H20, and some other products). Bioderma isn't generally available in the U.S.; I won't go out of my way to order it, but if I lived someplace where it's readily available, I would repurchase and consider as an alternative to LRP's Hydreane Legere, depending on price and any promotions.
Works very well for my combination skin, didn't break me out. Totally recommend.
Really nice feeling on the skin. It feels all soft and well hydrated during the day.
My only negative point is the smell, it's light but still I really don't like it...
I have sensitive skin and am always nervous trying new skincare products. This is the best moisturizer I've ever used and I've been using it for aver a year (bought about 2 in a year).
A little goes a long way and I use about the volume of a large pea for my face. It absorbs really quick, almost instantly, and isn't the least bit greasy. Makes dry spots go away though I wouldn't call it super hydrating...
I'd obviously repurchase and continue to do so unless I decide to experiment and happen to find something even better (kinda doubtful).
Note: It is rather expensive, like 30 something CAD.
JULY 2012 EDIT:
Still using this! It's good for winter or summer and I will hopefully be a lifetime user >:) continued >>
