I am a huge fan of Sebamed Skin Care products. My skin gets very sensitive when the weather gets colder, and I trust Sebamed to help keep my skin healthy and protected during these colder months of winter. From Dry and itchy skin to stretch marks and Eczema, Sebamed offers science based solutions for sensitive skin.
I have been using Sebamed body lotion for a few years now because it gives my skin the moisture it needs without any unnecessary ingredients that irritate my skin, and I love it. I was recently given the chance to review a few of Sebamed's products that I had never tried before, and I chose the products below.
Visio Gentle Cleansing Milk~ My face is the first thing to show sensitivity when the weather gets colder. I go from a heated house or car to brisk cold weather, and that makes my skin go crazy. It gets very sensitive and dry. During this cold season, it is imperative that I use a cleanser that won't further irritate my skin. This cleansing milk is the perfect solution because it gently removes dirt, sebum, makeup and other impurities without drying out my facial skin.
Specially formulated with a Biophytex complex containing panthenol and calendula extract, Cleansing Milk soothes irritation. Plus, it can be used either with or without water.
Sebamed Spa Shower~ Most body washes contain chemicals and harsh fragrances that really irritate my skin. I need one that is effective, yet gentle. Sebamed Spa Shower is the perfect body wash for me because it hydrates, refreshes and cleanses my skin while making me feel relaxed.
Relaxation promotes good health overall and can even reduce skin condition outbreaks that are triggered by stress like psoriasis. Formulated with mild cleansing agents and water lily extract, our Spa Shower wash is completely calming – the perfect shower gel in today’s stressful world.
Q10 Skin Firming Body Lotion~ I love my daily Sebamed body lotion, but it is very nice to have found a product that can also help to tighten and firm my skin.
The Q10 Firming Body Lotion is enriched with shea butter, argan oil and barley grain wax to help firm up aging skin and maintain youthful elasticity. As we age, our cell reproduction begins slowing down and eventually loose skin becomes noticeable. The Q10 Firming Body Lotion improves your skin’s elasticity, making it firmer and restoring tone. However, the q10 lotion rich ingredients not only firm up your skin; they help to protect it with our special pH 5.5 balance, too. Body lotion with q10 contains many benefits such as works as an anti-aging solution, firms your skin for radiance, and helps support skin cell renewal.

Meet Sebamed Liquid Face & Body Wash, perhaps the best cleanser of all time to share with your man. First and foremost, the bottle is white. Not pink. It's classic and unisex with a pump dispensing system, meaning its man proof! - am I the only one convinced guys are genetically programmed to lose caps?
Enriched with a natural moisturizing complex of vitamins and soothing allantonin, it rinses away completely for healthier, smoother, hydrated skin. Plus, it's a dermatologist developed wash with pH value of 5.5, the exact pH of healthy skin (body, face and scalp).
Oh, and the fact that it's under $20 means you won't squirm every time your significant other squeezes a palm full of the stuff into his hands. It's already the #1 selling wash for sensitive skin in 85+ countries, including its native Germany, and is now available stateside at CVS, RiteAid and Walmart.
I truly love my Sebamed Liquid Face & Body Wash! It smells extremely fresh and clean. I love that I can use it to wash my face as well as my body. I love how it thoroughly, yet gently removes all traces of my makeup, even my eye makeup without stinging my eyes!
It also makes the perfect sudsy lather for shaving my legs. My skin is left soft and moisturized. My husband loves it too!

Celebrity makeup artists create thousands of diverse looks to suit their clients' occasions, but they all begin with the basics: Smooth, hydrated and even-toned skin. Getting that glow is less complicated than you may think!
Makeup artist and hairstylist, Alexa Rodulfo's current beauty obsession is NeoCell Super Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid! Alexa states, "The beauty market has wonderful products to make your skin glow and look healthy and flawless. I do believe is very important to take care of the inside as well.My current beauty obsessions? NeoCell Hyaluronic Acid (blueberry) as it acts as a powerful aid in skin hydration and NeoCell Super Collagen as it's great for your skin, hair, nails and joints."
Makeup Artist Helen Robertson, who works with Allison Janney, relies on these moisturizers to prep Janney's skin for photo shoots. She says, "I applied Sebamed Moisturizing Face Cream for sensitive skin on Allison's face prior to makeup, to liven and enrich Allison's skin. I massaged Sebamed Moisturizing Body Lotion for sensitive skin all over Allison's body for a rich, reflective glow."
NeoCell Hyaluronic Acid - Blueberry Liquid. Hyaluronic Acid is a water-loving nutrient that hydrates the body and promotes skin elasticity. It promotes cell turnover and is known as Nature's Moisturizer due to its ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. Studies have shown that by adding Hyaluronic Acid to your daily beauty routine it can improve skin conditions such as dandruff, eczema and psoriasis, as well as dry, scaly skin.
My skin has never felt so hydrated! No other moisturizer that you apply to your skin works quite like NeoCell Hyaluronic Acid. It hydrates from the inside out. My skin has that youthful glow all over. My dry patches and psoriasis have vanished.

Our daily shower seems pretty straight forward, right? But odds are, at least one step in your well-meaning routine unintentionally leaves your skin or hair worse for wear.
For anyone who’s ever gotten that dry, tight feeling, an itchy scalp, irritation or redness after a shower, these five common shower mistakes are likely culprits that unintentionally strip skin of oils and throw the skin’s pH balance out of whack. Fortunately, the fixes are simple! Spending five minutes to optimize your cleaning routine makes can leave your body balanced and refreshed:
- Mistake #1: Overdosing on Shampoo. Ninety-three percent of the country’s adults shampoo almost daily, according to market research firm Mintel. But so much washing strips hair’s natural oils, drying and weakening the strands and irritating the scalp. Dermatologists lathering up just 3 to 4 times per week (or less!) with just a dime sized dollop of soap free shampoo, and only rinsing hair on other days. If you can’t resist washing daily, make sure to choose a pH balanced formula like Sebamed Scalp Activating Shampoo ($15.49 at SebamedUSA.com), as balanced formulations which won’t strip hair of oils.
- Mistake #2: Washing with Soap and Hot Water. They may seem innocent, but traditional soap bars can have a pH of up to 9, leaving skin dry, tight and vulnerable to damage. Ditch the soap and switch to a soap-free cleansing bar or soap-free milky cleanser for both the face and body, like Sebamed Liquid Face and Body Wash ($19.95 at SebamedUSA.com).
- Mistake #3: A Sudsy Shave. Shaving with foam and water alone may protect from cuts, but foam isn’t protective enough to defend against razor burn and redness, especially if you’re using hot water. If skin is dry, try using your hair conditioner as an alternative shaving aid. It hydrates and sinks deep within skin to prevent nicks, cuts and razor burn, but its smooth consistency won’t clog your razor, as long as you rinse.
- Mistake #4: Using Your Regular Body Wash on Intimate Areas. The intimate area’s ideal pH is actually different than the rest of our skin (3.8 as opposed to 5.5) and regular soaps and showers, certain clothing, diet and even sex all affect that balance. Stock your shower with a product like Sebamed Feminine Intimate Wash ($15.49 at SebamedUSA.com) that’s specifically formulated at pH 3.8 to balance the delicate pH down there, making it easy to stay fresh, healthy and happy by protecting against imbalances that trigger infections and odors.
- Mistake #5: Not Moisturizing Immediately After Your Shower. After a hot shower, you have three minutes before your body loses essential moisture. To prevent dry, crackly, irritated skin, store a body lotion in your shower and apply all over while skin is still damp.
I use Sebamed products in my shower every night, and the body lotion afterwards. My skin is responding very well and feels very moisturized and pampered. I love my Sebamed body care products and I trust them to keep my skin healthy.
