Review: Bioderma Sebium H2O Non-Rinse cleanser – the blue Bioderma

Bioderma has been creating a buzz on the beauty world for a while. When I saw it at a pretty good price at a Japanese drugstore, I decided to give it a try.
This is a review for the Bioderma Sebium H2O Solution Purifying Non-Rinse Cleanser for Combination or Oily Skin.

What it does: (from Bioderma’s website)
BIODERMA innovation, Sébium H2O gently cleanses the skin without drying it, through the micro-emulsion of impurities and excess sebum. Enriched with purifying active ingredients, Sébium H2O cleanses the epidermis in depth and regulates secretion of sebum. The patented sebo-correcting complex, Fluidactiv®, normalises sebum quality.

Price: will vary, I see this online for $25-30 for the 500ml bottle. There is also a 100ml bottle.

How to use:
This is basically a cleanser/makeup remover. Soak a cotton pad with the product, and rub your face. You do not need to rinse the product off, but the website suggests to dry your face after using.


  • it does a really good job at removing face makeup!
  • Not having to rinse my face after using it is a big plus


  • I cannot use it to remove my eye makeup. It does not remove mascara at all. (Bioderma’s website does say to not use it around the eyes)
  • For me, this was a good level of drying/moisturizing qualities, but it may be harsh for some people

Would I repurchase? Maybe, if I can find it at a good price.

Have you tried this product after all the buzz online? Please let me know what you think!
