Hydrabio Cream

Pairs perfectly with strong actives

Since using tretinoin 0.1% nightly this year, this is my go-to moisturizer. For those not too familiar with prescription retinoid, tretinoin does wonders for clearing up acne and hyperpigmentation. However, it comes at a cost of potential irritation, dryness, and flaking at least in the beginning and then again when you don't moisturize well. The consistency of this is a bit thicker but melts onto the skin in a way that spreads easily. It envelops your skin in a mild, cushiony layer of softness and moisture. Since there are no actives in this moisturizer, it is the perfect non-reactive, non-irritating paring for skin that has been through the wringer due to actives, or is simply dry and flaky.

For reference, I have very acne-prone combination skin and this moisturizer is perfect for winter and nighttime use. For oily skin, this may be too heavy at least of use during the day. It has never broken me out and always helped to minimize the dryness I usually experience from tretinoin the next day. To be honest, it isn't the most interesting or active laden moisturizer but sometimes that is exactly what you need.

Super Rich!

If your skin is dry & flaky and you need a super rich cream to soothe it, look no further. This cream is very thick; a little goes a long way. I find it does sit on top of the skin for a bit - a bit tacky - but after awhile it absorbs completely leaving the skin feeling soft to the touch. Price can't be beat either!

Miracle in a Jar

I use this cream in the evening after cleansing and exfoliating/Vitamin C serum for intense moisture. This cream is definitely heavy/thick, and while it absorbs, it does leave a moisturizing layer on your skin. It is way too thick/intense for day use, but is amazing for night moisture. It comes with a little spatula to scoop out the product instead of sticking your fingers in the jar each time! The cream does have a very faint but nice scent to it. This does not break me out and has actually got rid of my acne.

After switching to Bioderma products, I have the best skin of my life! My face absolutely GLOWS now!

I am really loving my skin routine now that I have this little gem. It is super moisturizing. I use it as my night time moisturizer ... not thick feeling, not sticky felling, it just leaves my skin feeling plump and supple
