Skincare travel essentials - Bioderma


Hey guys, long time no speak! I hope you are all doing well. So I have some news, I am off travelling in a few weeks to Greece and Thailand among other places and I am beyond excited. This means my skin is going to come into contact with harsh UV rays and I am preparing my skin regime for this. So you all may know Bioderma best for their very famous Micellar cleansers, however, they also do other skincare goodies which I have reviewed HERE but also sun protection! You can get an all-year round photoprotective care for you skin with the Bioderma Photoderm range. At the end of the day we all love to sit out in the sun and get a tan during the summer time...we just need to make sure we are using the right products to protect our face and body.  In this post I am reviewing two of my favourite sun protection products from Bioderma. Hope you enjoy reading my review!



This sun-spray is suitable for all skin types, yes even combination to oily skin, skin that is sensitive or intolerant to all types of sunlight, very fair skin with freckles, so you can’t really go wrong!! 

I always like to switch sunscreens and the only reason is that I get bored of using the same stuff and want to switch up my routine and experiment with new stuff. I pretty much have finished using this Bioderma sunscreen. I have a love-hate relationship with this one. For me, sunscreen is like that bad medicine you just suck it up if I’m honest, I’m just lazy with it. But this stuff comes in a spray so is super easy!!

Overview of this sunscreen:
  •       Does not have any fragrance to it.
  •       Leaves a white cast if you use a lot in one go but settles down after some good 10 minutes, so you have to bare that in mind.
  •       Gives a high protection of SPF 50+.
  •       The texture is watery and spreads evenly on the skin.
  •       Protects from both UVA and UVB rays.
  •      This sunscreen has “cellular bioprotection” that activates the skin’s natural defences, protects cells and combats premature skin ageing.
  •       It is free of parabens.
  •      I don’t find it too greasy and after it settles, I can easily go on with my makeup routine. It does look shiny after application. It does not interfere with the makeup I put on top. Since it is such a high SPF Sunscreen, I suggest not to use before your makeup when you have flash pictures taken.
  •       To use I hold the mist about 20cm from the skin and spray evenly. When I apply to my face, I spray some into hands and smooth on, avoiding the eyes. Re-apply every 2 hours.


Onto the second product, and this one is used AFTER sun exposure. This after sun moisturising milk works to rehydrate your skin that has been dried out by sun exposure throughout the day. It then also prepares your skin for further exposure by optimising its natural anti-UV protection and maintaining a balanced hydration level. The exclusive patented cellular BIOprotection® complex effectively shields the skin against risk of cell damage. The moisturising milk is extremely smoothing, refreshing and decongests the skin after sun exposure. It has a light and easy to apply texture which does not leave a white cast like some other after suns do and makes sure you skin curbs skin peeling.

The 'Bioderma Photoderm Apres Soleil RefreshingAfter Sun Milk' has got to be one of the best After Sun lotions I have used in a long time, and that’s saying something! I love the formulation behind it and how it rehydrates the skin, prolongs your tan and how overall refreshing it is. In the past I have used After Sun lotions which have had a pretty thick clogging consistency which I feel did nothing to my skin other than leave a white cast. When you apply it absorbs into your skin quite quickly and after a few hours your skin feels really moisturised and smells like a summer holiday. I also love the fact it is a 2-in-1 product that can be used on the body but also on your face also. In the past when I have used After Sun lotions I found they made my skin break out on my face but it has not yet been the case with this life saving product.

Hope you enjoyed this Bioderma review! I would love to know your thoughts on the product and whether you have used any of the Bioderma Photoderm range.

Love Ciandra x
