Curious about Sebamed and the popular Sebamed moisturizing cream? In this Sebamed review we’ll spill all the details!
Change is good after all, if you keep doing the same things you will get the same results and then you may never improve.
Winston Churchill said “To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.” I found a company that has been around for decades and it has made me re-think everything I do.
Let me introduce you to Sebamed, a German skincare company developed by a dermatologist.
This company believes that products should aim to maintain a neutral 5.5 ph to keep the skin happy and healthy so it can heal itself. There are 150 studies to confirm that their philosophy works.
You may be asking “what’s ph?” This site explains it well, but basically it’s a scale that measures how acidic something is.
Pure water is neutral, with a pH of 7.0. Less than 7 is acidic.
Sebamed is a pH of 5.5 to match the hydrolipid film (called the acid mantle) on the surface of the skin which is slightly acidic (pH 5.5).
I will be honest, their philosophy had me a bit mystified because I have been self-diagnosing my skin for years based on how my skin is reacting in various climates – and have a rainbow of products to prove it.
Could I have been sabotaging myself all of this time?
It is unusual for me to devote myself to an entire “system” for an extended period of time and lock out everything else.
I usually use a variety of brands for a bunch of different uses since I have combination skin.
You name a product I can probably give you my rationale of WHY I have used it. But, I really wanted to give these products a fair shake and see overall if trying to maintain my skin at a 5.5 pH had an effect.
The Eczema & Sensitive Skin Care System is made especially for sensitive “special needs” skin that is red, itchy, flaky or dry and includes four products, the Liquid Face & Body Wash, the Sensitive Skin Moisturizing Cream, a Hand & Nail balm and the Moisturizing Body Lotion.
I have told everyone before, I love a good multitasker product because it simplifies my life.
Sebamed Liquid Face & Body Wash Review
I found the gentle Liquid Face & Body Wash had a very positive effect and seemed to bring everything into balance.
This stuff may smell like nothing you have ever smelled before, I found it is sort of herbal medicinal.
Best of all, this wash has a ton of uses – I found it to be superior as a makeup remover, shaving cream, body wash and face wash.
I even have used it to clean makeup brushes.
Who would not like one bottle for six possible uses?
It also worked great with my Clarisonic.
- Size: 400ml / each
- Includes: 2 Sebamed liquid face & body wash with pump
- No parabens; 100% soap & alkali-free
Sebamed Moisturizing Cream Review
The Sensitive Skin Moisturizing Cream is very concentrated. A very small amount goes a very long way.
It also reminded me of a very high-end facial moisturizer.
This was a bit too moisturizing for me to use morning and night, so I used it as needed.
I also used this as my eye cream during this test period twice a day with no irritation.
- Size: 2.6oz/75g each
- pH value of 5.5 for healthy skin
- For sensitive normal to oily skin
Sebamed Hand And Nail Balm Review
I was a bit skeptical if the Hand and Nail Balm would really work.
I am hard on my hands as an avid gardener and my nails are not usually in great condition as a result. The quality of my nails really did improve.
- Size: 2.6oz. / 75ml. (each)
- Ph value of 5.5 for healthy skin
- Quickly absorbs, no color additives
Sebamed Moisturizing Body Lotion Review
This balm and the Moisturizing Body Lotion worked amazingly well in harmony.
Both products nourished well and soaked in quickly but were not greasy. And overall (and all over) my skin does feel healthier, smoother and best of all no dry sensitive itchy areas.
- Active moisturizing complex nourishes and preserves the natural moisture balance of the skin
- Camomile extract and allantoin soothe the skin making it soft and supple
- Supports and protects the acid mantle of the skin. With the pH value of 5.5 of healthy skin.
Sebamed Skincare Pros & Cons
• Products are extremely mild and soap-free
• Great Value
• Environmentally conscious -Nearly 100% Biodegradable
• The quality of my skin (face and body) did improve with less redness and sensitivity
• Scent may not be for everyone
• No SPF
Now, let me answer the question . . . Have I been self-sabotaging when I have been using my rainbow of products for combination skin?
In truth, I probably have . . . going from acne to combination to dry skin products had to have had a very poor effect on my skin’s protective barrier.
I am now a die-hard neutral pH convert.
