I love Bioderma Sebium Global. I use this one a day, at night time on top of my Olay sensitive moisturiser. I also use Bioderma Sebium Gel (the blue gel) and together they have been incredible at treating my acne. I'm so happy with these so far and it has made such a difference in my life!Global has effectively reduced the active pimples and clogged pores all over my face. It also treats facial redness resulting from acne. In a span of just one week, I've seen great improvement on my skin - a lot less redness and inflammation, active pimples and clogged pores. It helps prevent new pimples forming as well. Thank you Bioderma!! Love you!!When you apply it, it will sting slightly but this should subside after 2-3 minutes. At first, it might take longer but after a few times, your skin will get used to it. Even my sensitive skin can handle it. I see it as a sign of it working on drying acne and treating redness. Highly recommended if you're after something for sensitive, acne/blemised skin!

i have to say goodbye to this sebium global after tried it for 2 weeks. at first i give it a try after i read it suit for combi-oily skin and also can eliminate pimples and blackheads and also soothes and reduces redness cause by inflammation. unfortunately this can make my mild rosacea flare up a bit and have an itchy feeling for 10-15 minutes after i applied it on my face. i tried to use twice daily, but as it has an itchy feeling so i only use it once daily.I stop using this after 2 weeks without any improvement and apparently it can not eliminate my blackheads, hormonal acne still came and go, my whiteheads still there and eventually it made me a break out with a little red bumps on my jawline.i really don't know what ingredient that not suit for me, maybe the fragrance or maybe the alkyl lactate. whatever it is, my skin doesn't like this product. sorry!here is the ingredient list that i got from bioderma website :AQUA/WATER/EAU, C12-13 ALKYL LACTATE, DIPROPYLENE GLYCOL, CITRIC ACID, CYCLOPENTASILOXANE, SODIUM HYDROXIDE, GLYCERIN, ZINC GLUCONATE, METHYL METHACRYLATE CROSSPOLYMER, SALICYLIC ACID, ARACHIDYL ALCOHOL, DIMETHICONE, MANNITOL, XYLITOL, RHAMNOSE, FRUCTOOLIGOSACCHARIDES, LAMINARIA OCHROLEUCA EXTRACT, GINKGO BILOBA LEAF EXTRACT, BEHENYL ALCOHOL, GLYCERYL STEARATE, PEG-100 STEARATE, SILICA, HYDROXYETHYL ACRYLATE/SODIUM ACRYLOYLDIMETHYL TAURATE COPOLYMER, XANTHAN GUM, ARACHIDYL GLUCOSIDE, C30-45 ALKYL CETEARYL DIMETHICONE CROSSPOLYMER, GLYCYRRHETINIC ACID, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, POLYSORBATE 60, CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, BAKUCHIOL, SQUALANE, FRAGRANCE (PARFUM).

I had a random sudden breakout of spots and blackheads on my cheeks and forehead. I had heard about bioderma sebium products before so I decided to but the bioderma sebium h20 water (which is amazing for taking off makeup and making skin soft) and I bought the global cream. I applied the cleansing water morning and night and after I applied the cream allover my face. After about 5 days I noticed the appearance of my spots to down completely and they became less noticeable. Although the didn't disappear completely, but after maybe a couple of weeks using both the water and cream twice a day then that could happen. The cream can hurt a little if you have open pores or sensitive skin but it did an amazing job at toning down blemishes. Would definitely buy again :)

Like the Sebium AKN, this does nothing on my skin, and I can only use it at night, because it's sticky and bad under makeup!Really wanted to like this one, but not worth it.

I have been lucky to go through adolesence with barely a pimple in sight, only to develop adult acne on my chin and lower cheeks at the ripe age of 40:( After trying to treat it with Neostrata Smoothing Cream (thinking this was better for my skin since it claims to treat wrinkles as well) and seeing no result, I decided to take drastic measures and turn to acne fighting products instead. I had two friends who were recommended by their dermatologists to try the Bioderma Sebium Global gel and so last May I bought my first ever anti-acne treatment. Unfortunately, I used Sebium Global once a day every morning for more than a month with no difference whatsoever. In fact, I have the impression that I started developing more pimples than before. I blamed my Sunscreen at the time (also by Bioderma), bought another one and stopped using Sebium Global during my holidays where the sun and sea salt managed to clear my face on their own. To my great disappointment though, upon my arrival to work I started breaking out again and a week ago I remembered my Bioderma Sebium Global cream which I hadn't used for almost two months. After only two days of use, my one pink pimple turned into 4(!) red and inflammed ones in both of my cheeks. I know some people say that you have to go through the 'purging' face, but based on my earlier experience with Global, that wasn't going to happen anyway. So, I bought a tube of Avene Cleanance K gel, which on the first night managed to clear my whiteheads and on the second turned my large red pimples into small, pink ones. I've been using Avene for 4 days (nights to be exact) and my pimples are barely visible anymore. I don't know if Cleanance will continue working for me (I plan to write a review after a couple of weeks of testing) but I know for sure that Bioderma Sebium Global does nothing at best for adult acne and aggravates it at worst. I'm really, really disappointed with it, and the only good thing is that I didn't pay too much for it. In the garbage bin it goes!

I have been blessed and fortunate enough to have reasonably good skin all through my adolescence and early 20's. Recently for reasons unbeknown to me my skin began developing acne like characteristics; redness, pimples, irritation and inflammation. I wouldn't classify it as full blown acne but it surely felt like it was heading that way if I didn't act quickly and resolve the issue. I tend to shy away from products that are chemical laden and definitely prefer 100% natural skin care. I tried a view natural products but my skin either didn't improve at all or improved slightly for some time before reverting back to its previous state. I've been using Sebium Global for approximately two weeks now and I really can't believe the difference. So much so that I actually created an account to endorse this product. After a few days there was noticeable changes to my skin; pore size, redness and irritation had diminished, and the frequency and size of breakouts had decreased. I hate wearing a full face of makeup and now I am able to revert back to old habits of walking outside my house without product (or a care in the world). THIS PRODUCT IS THE BOMB-DIGGITY!! I hope Sebium Global works for you as well as its worked for me.

I've been diagnosed with acne by a dermatologist. He did not say the type or anything, he only prescribed me with Isotretinoin, which I refused to take since it's so harmful and my skin hasn't reach that low point in which antibiotics are the only solution. In my opinion he was a very shitty dermatologist, he only said "you have acne, I'm going to prescribe you this, it has a lot of side effects, get these blood tests done, send them to me and you can begin the treatment and see me in 3 months". When I finally left his office 75 euros shorter, I cried the whole way home. And sometimes when I look in the mirror I still do, I actually avoid looking at it. I know it's not that bad, it could be much worse and it's mainly some inflamated pimples, some visibles marks of past pimples and and a lot of clogged pores, but for someone who has always had clear skin, it's a lot. I feel the need to talk about this, how it makes feel, how I don't like to go out anymore beacause of it but I feel ashamed, I feel like I'm being selfish and I'm afraid of being judged or perceived as meek, since people have much serious issues to take care, such as college, money, relationships. Even I have those same issues, but I just can't seem to stop thinking about this current situation with my skin.But moving on with the actual review of this product! It's a watery, white substance that is quickly absorved by the skin, I find the scent very unpleasant, similar to clearasil (which I do not recommend at all) but after ten minutes or so it fades. I have been using this product for a week now, and I am incredibly disappointed with the result. Although it seems to dry the pimples, I developed some kind of reaction to it. Innitially it just cause some mild itching that disappeard after a while. But sometimes, through the week, it started to burn. Today it makes precisely 8 days when I started using the product and my skin has gotten worst when it comes to the texture of it. It's incredibly irregular, "bumpy", it's similar to a rash but without the redness of it. The red pimples are still there but at least they don't hurt when pressed. I do not know it it was the fact that later this week the temperature was quite high and the sun very strong, or it's just the moisturizer alone that caused this reaction, but without a doubt I will not use it again.I would like to apologize for my personal and depressing introduction, but I really needed to get this out of me since I tried to tell a close friend of mine how my skin made me feel, and she basically said "you are overreaction".Hope all of you who feel like this way,find a way to manage your skin problem and how it makes you feel. I recently started wearing my face completely exposed with a headband or by using a ponytail so I could somehow embrace my skind and face and stop feeling ashamed of it. It has helped to an extent, but it has done nothing to my actual condition and sometimes it is still hard to look in the mirror.If you have any tips, I'll gladly read them!

I received a sample of this in a beauty box and, after glancing at the packaging, assumed it was a spot treatment. I have fairly "normal" skin, though in winter it leans towards being dry with the occasional small breakout. I put a tiny dab of this product onto a breakout before bed one night, saw a noticeable improvement the next day and decided to look it up... only to discover it was a moisturizer! While there is no way that I could put this all over my face in light of my current age and climate, I immediately thought about how great it would have been to have when I was a teenager with acne-prone skin. I think it smells and feels lovely, and would definitely consider using it as a regular moisturizer if I had very oily skin.

I love this product and bought my fourth one recently. I apply this cream at night to clean my pores and little pimples. It creates miracle in just one night. My dermatologist suggested this product as a treatment for acne as well, and it works.

So far, bioderma hasn't let me down. I've tried a few of their products for oily acne prone skin, and so far so good.Early this year i had a really wierd reaction to an hormonal drug prescribed by my doctor to control my acne due to the change of my bc pill. My skin was horrible, really dull looking, full of clogged pores, especially around my jaw line, and with a few inflamation spots. It was also really oily and my pores were huge!I stopped the medication, and tried to fix my skin. Effaclar Duo was the answer... I was seeing results in the first week of usage. I was happy with it... I was using it along with Triacneal by Avene, and later discovered that Triacneal was causing me oily skin and clogged pores, which interfere with the good results of Effaclar Duo. (i have reviews for both of this products).Later decided to not repurchase Effaclar Duo, and try Effaclar K instead, because it seemed more suitable for my skin issues (mostly comedonal acne). Another fail... In the beginning it seemed to be more effective but a couple of months later, there were no improvements and i was noticing an increase of clogged pores, that later got inflamed. Suddenly i had my left cheek covered in red spots... I left Effaclar K for good, and meanwhile i heard about this new product by Bioderma, that fights both comedonal acne and inflamatory acne. Also, bioderma products don't have fatty alcohols in their ingredients list, like Effaclar K and Triacneal have.. so i gave it a try.I paid 14 euros for a 30ml sleek plastic tube (i like the packaging). In the first week i noticed a decrease in inflamatory acne, and after that my skin just got better. My clogged pores are gone, and my inflamatory acne comes and goes faster, but in less number. I also noticed my acne marks less visible.It's been 2 months and i know i'm going to repurchased it, because it dind't let me down yet :)It stings a little when i have active pimples, but overall i dind't had any bad reaction or experienced dehydrated skin, but i make sure i moisturise after i let it sink in... I use it morning and night after the toner.This didn't cure my acne, but it is a great help for my problematic skin! :)
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
