Do you have really dry, sensitive, irritated skin or eczema? I haven't got eczema, but my legs get so dry and itchy that many, many times I've broken skin scratching them and left long-lasting marks. (Sorry if that's TMI, but there it is.)
This giveaway – I'm sorry, it ended April 2nd, 2018 – was sparked by a duo that stopped all that: Bioderma Atoderm Shower Oil and Bioderma Atoderm Intensive Baume for Very Dry, Irritated to Atopic Skin.
Bioderma Atoderm Shower Oil and Intensive Baume could be a skin-saving duo for you, too, whether you're dealing with itchy-itchy dry-dry or worse. Sanity-saving too, if your skin is so cranky it whinges incessantly, interfering with your concentration, mood and sometimes life in general. #theworst
So, for any of you whose dry, dry skin needs TLC, stat, we've got – make that HAD – three Bioderma sets to give away! Each prize included a bottle each of Atoderm Shower Oil ($19.95 CAD/1L at amazon.ca) and Atoderm Intensive Baume ($24.90 CAD/500mL at amazon.ca) obvi. As well, our 3 winners each received an Atoderm Ultra Repair Hand & Nail Cream ($9.95 CAD/50mL at amazon.ca) and Atoderm Lip Moisturising Stick ($6.95 CAD/4g at amazon.ca). That's a total value of $61.75 CAD – and it meant our giveaway was open to Quebec-based beautygeeks too! (Unfortunately, our US-based friends couldn't participate, but we'll run something that includes you soon, I promise.)
about bioderma shower oil & intensive baume
Made with glycerin, lipid components from coconut and sunflower oils, and skin-BFF Vitamin B3, Bioderma Atoderm Shower Oil lathers lightly and washes off easily. Paraben-, colourant-, sulfate- and soap-free, the formula gently cleanses without drying skin out – it won't send your moisture levels into a deficit before you even get out of the shower. (Tip: helps to keep that water temperature at warm, not hot.)
You'll see in the ingredient list that there IS fragrance in the shower oil, but it's a mild, simple scent that gets diluted quickly under the shower spray and lingers only briefly on skin once you're out of the tub. (The French love their scented skincare – they feel it adds to the experience. Bioderma feels that bit of fragrance will make you want to use the shower oil every day, which is better for your poor skin in the long run.)
The oil is suitable for use on baby skin, and for cleansing your face, too.
The Bioderma Intensive Baume is a fragrance-free balm made with glycerin, mineral oil, sunflower seed oil and ceramides (see full ingredient listing below). Applied to damp skin following a shower-oil sesh, it locks moisture in and helps keep it there all day.
(According to Bioderma, in a clinical trial with 130 participants between the ages of 6 months and 15 years who had moderate atopic dermatitis, "76% of tested patients did not have a relapse after applying the product for 6 months." (Why no higher than 15 years old I don't know, but at least I can tell you the shower oil and balm work for me. When I use them, my skin quiets down. It doesn't itch and thus it doesn't snark at me. Win win.)
One more thing: If you win and like the products enough to purchase stand-bys for when you need replacements, you might find this next bit of information helpful. Until May 15th, 2018, Bioderma Canada will donate $1 CAD from the sale of each Atoderm Shower Oil and Atoderm Intensive Baume to the Children's Wish Foundation.
