Finally, we are saying goodbye to the searing hot summer as we welcome the rainy season! Phew! That was one HOT SUMMER! My skin easily reacts whenever there is a change in weather. Now, let us go to the unboxing of the box! 🙂
For this month’s box, the BDJ team decided to give Bioderma sample sizes, thus, receiving mixed reactions from a lot of people. Personally, this is the first time that I learned about this brand. Hence, I did some internet research.
Bioderma is a skin care product from France that was launched here in the Philippines last year. I read on its site that based on total respect for the skin, BIODERMA products imitate its natural biological mechanisms through their components and their modes of action. To formulate them, BIODERMA selects the purest active ingredients, using molecules naturally found in the skin for better tolerance. Depending on the malfunction, BIODERMA products preserve, activate or restore the skin’s natural processes. Because of its unique concept and effectivity, Bioderma was included in Vogue’s UK top 10 French Beauty Products for 2013.
Sebium H2O (10ml, Php63.80)
Gently cleanse your skin with this ultra-mild, non-rinse micellar water cleanser and make-up remover. Created to suit the needs of those who experience skin irritation and redness, the alcohol-free formula soothes and cools as it cleanses. The cleanser removes impurities using micelles, which micro-emulsify impurities while maintaining the skin’s balance. Soak a cotton pad with the solution, and cleanse the face and eyes.
Sensibio Eye Contour Gel (2ml, Php83.20)
Restore the youthful brightness of your sensitive eye area with this gel. The lightweight hydrating gel works to decongest this most delicate area of our skin, reducing puffiness and smoothing line lines with its rigorously selective active ingredients. Immediately, eye skin is soothed and protected, and becomes resistant to external attack thanks to the patented Toléridine® complex.
Atoderm Intensive (16ml, Php113.44)
When skin is atopic and dry, it can be extremely irritable, itchy and uncomfortable. The Intensive Soothing Emollient Care is created with Bioderma’s exclusive Skin Barrier Therapy® complex, which restores the integrity of the skin barrier, prevents the penetration of allergens and enhances suppleness and comfort. Added Zinc and Betasitosterol provide intense anti-inflammatory care, and helps to stop the itch.
Atoderm Preventive (8ml, Php79.92)
Limit the aggravation of very dry skin from birth with a delicate formula created for infants and children. It has been developed to intensively restore the integrity of the skin barrier by strengthening and protecting young skin, ensuring that the evolution from dryness to atopic dermatitis in childhood is prevented. With its quick application and ultra-comfortable texture, skin is soothed swiftly and durably.
Sensibio AR (5ml, Php208.50)
This daily hydrating cream is formulated to reduce the intensity of redness and prevent its appearance with a wealth of perfectly tolerated active ingredients. Instantly soothing upon application, it reduces the ‘overheated’ feeling experienced in skin that is prone to redness. As well as working immediately, the cream works over time to combat the formation and aggravation of diffuse redness with a long-lasting effect.
Sebium AKN (5ml, Php173.00)
This non-comedogenic treatment cleanses the pores in depth while slowing the overproduction of sebum. It also smoothes the skin’s texture over time, ensuring that it looks clear and more uniform. Soothing ingredients reduce irritation and diminish the appearance of redness, and hydrating agents to make sure the skin is comfortable and soft. The light texture is rapidly absorbed and makes a great make-up base.
Sensibio Light (5ml, Php193.50)
This silky everyday moisturizer protects the complexion from external aggravators, and works to build the skin’s own tolerance over time with the patented Toléridine® complex. Formulated with rigorously selective active ingredients, it is an ideal step in the treatment of sensitive skin. Over time tightness and overheating of the skin is reduced thanks to the restoration of the cutaneous barrier. In its place is a supple, comfortable and less inflamed complexion.
Sebium DS+ (5ml, Php203.50)
This is an intensely calming moisturiser with a lightweight texture. Designed for those who have sebhorrhoeic dermatitis, its soothing formula works to relieve high colour and smooth the skin using a dual anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory action. It uses a targeted action to boost the skin’s healing process, while the patented natural D.A.F complex improves the skin’s tolerance threshold. Its pleasant, non-oily gel-cream texture provides instant comfort.
The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain (full-size, 8ml, Php795.00)
This dual-purpose stain from The Body Shop gives your lips and cheeks a healthy-looking glow with one wash of color, or builds up for a richer, deeper coverage. Used alone, it’s a sheer stain, but can also be used as a great base for lip and even cheek products for a longer lasting flush. Its moisturizing formulation helps to condition the skin with Vitamin E. Dab onto lips or cheeks straight from the applicator, then blend using clean fingertips.
The Body Shop gift certificate worth Php200.00 was also included in the box. However, this Php200.00 savings is only applicable on regular-priced The Body Shop products with minimum Php1,000.00 single-receipt purchase.
Since most of the items are sample sizes, the amount was computed based on the actual sample size received and not based on its full-size cost. The Body Shop gift certificate was not included in the computation of the actual cost of the box.
After doing my own computation (based on the sample sizes and 1 full-size product received), the total cost of the box is Php1,913.86.
