As the winter season is coming along in full swing, it is important to look after our skin considering it isn’t uncommon to suffer from dry skin during the winter.
Bioderma’s Atoderm’ range is a range of luxurious skincare products devoted to keeping the skin hydrated and soft throughout the cold winter months. Each product in the range contains dermo-patented formulas, which deliver wonderful results when it comes to the skin lasting in moisture. I’ve been using four of the products in the Atoderm range, and I really wanted to share my experience in using these products daily as someone who suffers from dry skin in the winter.

The ‘Gentle Shower Gel’ is the perfect shower companion for someone with dry skin. With its rich texture, this product has been great for my skin. When used before the ‘Atoderm Ultra-Nourishing Cream’, my skin is already being prepped for a day of no itchiness or dryness, just long-lasting moisture. A little goes a long way with this shower gel, as a lather is easy to build from a small amount of it. That’s something I certainly haven’t experienced with other shower gels when I’m pouring out almost a fifth of the bottle to work up a decent lather! Priced at £8.00, the shower gel is available on Feel Unique: https://www.feelunique.com/p/BIODERMA-Atoderm-Gel-Douche-Gentle-Shower-Gel-200ml.
I for sure can relate to the irritating crackly lips that many are prone to throughout the winter. Dry lips are a look I really like to avoid, and they’re a nasty feeling I just can’t dismiss. Priced at an affordable £5.50 on Feel Unique (https://www.feelunique.com/p/BIODERMA-Atoderm-Moisturising-Lip-Stick-4g) the ‘Atoderm Moisturising Lip Stick’ is certainly my favourite out of the range since my lips are prone to dryness the most. Since using on my lips daily the past couple of weeks, I’ve noticed that my lips are incredibly smooth and feel ultra-nourished. It also gives off a pearly shine like a lip gloss, making it justifiable for me to complete a makeup look with this product. The main benefits of this product are that it ‘restores dry, chapped labial mucosa’ and ‘protects against environmental stresses’. Made with shea butter, the lipstick also smells divine- a bonus!
The ‘Atoderm Hand and Nail Cream’ is a great hand-bag-friendly-sized product. It is small, but this product will last you a long time as a little does go a very long way. The cream is strengthening for the skin curing those dry and damaged hands you can’t stand in the winter- a godsend for me when I’m walking to university the cold morning of a 9 am lecture. I like to use this product twice a day, in the morning and late afternoon when I’m home from university. I keep it in my handbag though just in case. It only costs £4.50 on Feel Unique (https://www.feelunique.com/p/BIODERMA-Atoderm-Hand-and-Nail-Cream-50ml) – you can’t go wrong!
Bioderma’s ‘Atoderm Nourishing Cream’ is a generously sized product of 500ml- a great size to keep in your bathroom. Although this is the most expensive product I’ve tried in the Atoderm range (£18.50 on Feel Unique: https://www.feelunique.com/p/BIODERMA-Atoderm-Nourishing-Cream-500ml), it is worth the purchase if you suffer a lot from dry sensitive skin as this product will work wonders for you. It is a skincare cream that can not only be used all over your body, but it is suitable for the face too. The cream locks in 24-hour moisture; I’ve noticed that my skin doesn’t feel dry or itchy for an entire day when I use this product. Bioderma says that the skin will become “well moisturised with greater resistance and renewed softness and suppleness from the first application”, and I agree with this as these benefits have made me forget I had dry skin before.
