Get Protected with Bioderma’s Photoderm

Hi Lovelies!

I believe most of you are already aware of the skincare brand Bioderma, especially for their HG product, Bioderma Sensibio H2O water based makeup remover which I also love and have reviewed before here.

What I’m introducing today is their range of sunblocks; Bioderma Photoderm!

Bioderma Photoderm Mood Visual

Bioderma’s Photoderm range aims to protect all skin types.

I put Photoderm Max SPF50+ and Photoderm Spot SPF50+ to test and for review.

Bioderma Photoderm MAX SPF 50+ DRY TOUCH formula boast to be super effective sun protection with high anti UVA and UVB filters and a dry touch finish perfect for our humid weather. PLUS the entire Photoderm range boasts to include“the Cellular Bioprotection patent which protects 99.8% of cellular DNA to prevent free radical damage, protects and activates the immune system cells and protects cell integrity.

Bioderma Photoderm Max SPF 50+ is white and milky in consistency. BioDerma PhotoDerm Enabalista Blog Review 009_new

Bioderma Photoderm Max SPF 50+ is colourless on skin after application. No greasiness and also dry finish as touted yet without being drying, flaky or cakey. Yes, it is impressive for a sunblock.

I used the Bioderma Photoderm Max SPF 50+ and tested it with a few of my other usual skincare routine products and found out that it is 1) best used after my water based moisturizer as it will apply on even smoother. 2) It applies smoothly on bare skin but I prefer it with a layer of moisturizer before. 3) I didn’t like it when I apply it above a layer of serum, perhaps because my serum was slightly gelish in consistency and the sunblock felt a bit too much above the serum.

Therefore my verdict and recommendation is that it can be used on bare skin but better with a bit of moisturizer before.

I enjoyed using this sunblock and I would recommend it especially for athletes or anyone who works under the sun often and want something that protects your skin while being gentle and non-comedogenic (not acne causing).

Bioderma Photoderm SPOT SPF 50+ is also white and milky. For comparison, it is also slightly thicker and greasier than the MAX version above.

After application it is clear and leaves a slightly greasy feel that most strong sunblocks leave, in my opinion.

This Photoderm SPOT SPF50+ was specially formulated for brown spots and scars, it “prevents the appearance of pigment spots thanks to galbridrine, which is capable of inhibiting melanin synthesis.” So I use it mainly/only on my acne spots/pimples as it usually leaves a brown spot after.

I included this duo in my morning routine:

Sponsored Review | Sunplay’s NEW Watery Cool Mist SPF75 & Watery Cool Sunblock SPF65

I have all the reason to brave the hot sun and harmful UV rays for the whole of this year because in addition to the Sunplay Super Block SPF130 PA+++ I have also been sponsored Sunplay’s new Sunplay Watery Cool Mist UV Spray SPF75 plus Sunplay Watery Cool Sunblock SPF65 ! I’m a very happy girl. (;

And can I just say I really love the Sunplay’s new Sunplay Watery Cool Mist UV Spray SPF75? It smells so good… kind of like a refreshing men’s deodorant. Haha!

Sunplay NEW Watery Cool UV Mist SPF75 PA+++
Net Wt. 150ml, Retail Sales Price: $17.90

My review:

As I’ve let on earlier, Sunplay’s Watery Cool Mist SPF75 has a very refreshing and manly scent that’s sure to keep you fresh. As seen in the above picture, the mist is transparent, leaving no colour or traces. It is also a far lighter sun protection substance compared to the Sunblocks. I have not had the chance to apply it several times and test the actual protection but I foresee one might need some practice to ensure proper, all-round proof coverage because of it’s transparent and lightness. It is also advised on the bottle to reapply after swimming, perspiration or sun exposure for maximum exposure.

My review:

Sunplay Watery Cool Sunblock SPF65 is a white liquid based Sunblock but upon application it leaves no trace and is very light, non-greasy and has a mint scent to boot. It’s water-resistance attribute makes it ideal for swimming or any water-based activity.
