Every day, pollution, stress, cold weather, etc. disrupt the skin's cellular activity. As a result, it becomes dehydrated, tight and uncomfortable and loses its radiance. Developed in the Bioderma Research laboratories, the Aquagenium biological patent retrains the skin to activate its natural moisturizing capacities by stimulating the production of aquaporins, water channels in the skin, and retain the water it needs to be balanced.
Dehydrated sensitive normal to combination skin with lack of radiance.

It dries out skin so much that it flakes. The beads are too big and harsh. Previously I used Biotherm for dry skin, which definitely was better than Bioderma. It claims it is for dehydrated and sensitive skin. It is not!
Occasionally i like to use physical exfoliants and this one is my ride or die. I was so shocked after one use. My skin feels super moist, plump, and supple after. (I also am not using any actives on my skin at the moment fyi). My skin is combo, some dry areas, typical tzone oiliness, and sensitive. I apply this with very little pressure, gently gliding it across my face. I have tried numerous physical exfoliants over the years and this one stands out, because it was THAT moisturizing. I have repurchased this 3 times.
Physical exfoliates that I've tried: -Arcona cranberry gommage - Korres wild rose exfoliating cleanser -Laura mercier flawless skin face polish -Fresh umbrian clay purifying exfoliant (meh) -Murad Pore reform skin smoothing polish -DHC facial scrub -Bioderma sébium exfoliating gel
I didn't have any issues with the listed exfoliators. I just dont see myself buying them again. This bioderma hydrabio cream is a definite game changer! <3
I love Bioderma products. The Hydrabio line has changed my skin. I have super dry, sensitive skin and these products have definitely changed my life! I never Exfoliate because of my acne prone skin, I feel sometimes less is more, but I decided to give this a go, but it was wayyyyy too rough on my skin and didnt feel moisturizing at all. My skin felt very harsh and dry after using it. Returning
