I have been only using for the past 2 days, so I can barely believe the results from using this, I almost never leave reviews but felt the need to post for this product.
I have extremely oily skin, somewhat treatment resistant inflammatory acne (I am on 4 to 5 acne prescriptions- 3 to 4 topical and 1 oral). I have taken to trying to mask 1 to 2 times per week just to bring down the oil,. When I wear make up ,like clockwork I have to blot 1 to 2 hours after application to not look greasy in photos, I can only use extreme matte foundations.
The first day I used this I was surprised by how little oil was collected on my face at the end of the day when I had to wash, thought maybe it was in my head, but the following day it was the same. I will need to keep using to see if I'm just imagining this because after trying so many acne/oil control products I have never found anything that did this, despite the promises. I also wonder how something you wash off so quickly can possibly do this.
I was using the regular pink sensibio which I also love because my acne meds make my skin more sensitive, but at times wondered if it was really doing the deep clean my skin type requires and was combining it with Cetaphil which I felt got my skin cleaner . Regarding cetaphil although it cleans well i could not use cetaphil by itself because at times it was to harsh, even though it is relatively mild in the grand scheme of products out there and was combining with sensibio which gave the combination of gentleness and deep clean that I was looking for.
I felt like Sebium was just right, it gives a deep, effective , oil balancing clean, and absolutely no dryness or irritation, perfect for those with sensitive skin or skin made more sensitive by acne meds. the ingredients are very similar to sensibio which makes sense why it is not so harsh but I feel like the cleansing is more thorough than sensibio. It somehow seems to control oil production for the whole day which I have never been able to find in other products. What I don't like is the scent, does not smell natural would have preferred unscented or milder scent , like the sensibio scent, its a chemically perfumish scent, also the blue color makes me think there is some sort of coloring.
will attempt to post update in a few weeks to see if the oil control is in my head or not, I just can't believe it! I cannot comment on what it does for acne because it is too early but I will say my skin has had not 1 new breakout in the past 2 days which normally there is at least 1 new pimple
