As I get older my skin seems to be getting drier and more dehydrated (ooh what a depressing start to a post). What used to be oily/combination skin is now definitely much more normal/ dry. However, I still have a few blackheads on my nose and chin and also get the odd blemish around these same areas. So when I was sent a tube of the new Bioderma Sebium Global Cover to try, I was intrigued to see how it would work on my skin. Would it be too drying?
Sebium Global Cover is a high coverage tinted treatment cream that acts on the root causes of blemishes by using active ingredients, such as; AHA and salicylic acid to clear pores and smooth the texture of your skin.
It’s also said to treat existing blemishes and blackheads to reduce any obvious marks or scars.
The Bioderma Sebium Global Cover works in two ways…
- the high-coverage tinted cream evens out your complexion
- and the green compact (hidden with a mirror inside the cap) neutralises any sign of redness to conceal and treat any spot or blemish.
So what do I think?
If I’m honest, my skin is a little too dry for this product. Having said that the consistency of the cream is light and it’s easy to apply. It definitely covered any signs of blackheads and soaked up any oil. However, my skin felt a little tight and uncomfortable. This is probably because it’s designed for young skin prone to breakouts, excess oil or even acne. The mattifying effect of the cream was way too heavy and drying on my skin but I know that ten years ago I would have loved this product.
If you’re looking for a product that will help cover and treat teenage or twenty-something skin, this is a must-have product. It’s recommended by dermatologists and has proven scientific results to backup its claims. Unfortunately, if you’re in your late 30s (like me) or above, you may want to try a more nourishing product.
