   Well, i'll tell you a little about Bioderma and the product knowledge first. A pioneer since the 1970s, all BIODERMA products are formulated with teams of biologists and dermatologists. They rely on a biological mode of action that acts on the causes and consequences of the dermatological condition to correct it over the long term. Each Bioderma product adheres to the most rigorous recommendations issued by the health authorities and leading dermatology companies, so most of the products are totally recommended and safe for even sensitive skin. Anyway Bioderma has many kind of product line, one of them are Hydrabio, especially made for dehydrated skin. Dehydrated and dry skin in here means lack of water, not lack of oil. Keep in mind because it's kind of a different skin problem hehe. Dehydrated skin is more like a skin condition and can change through time, such as because of weather etc.

     As you might know, every day, pollution, stress, cold weather, etc. disrupt the skin's cellular activity. As a result, it becomes dehydrated, tight and uncomfortable and loses its radiance. Developed in the Bioderma Research laboratories, the Aquagenium™ biological patent found in Hydrabio retrains the skin to activate its natural moisturising capacities by stimulating the production of aquaporins, water channels in the skin, and retain the water it needs to be balanced. Also it contain Vitamin PP to restores the skin resistance and Apple Seed Extract to stimulates the activity of Aquaporins, allowing the water flow within the skin.

      So basically this is the differences between dehydrated skin (left) and hydrated skin (right). It might a bit blurry, so let me explain a little to you. Hydrated skin needs more Aquaporins for a better water circulation, a strong Hydrolipidic film, Intercorneocyte cement and sufficient NMF for strong barrier. That's how Bioderma Hydrabio can helps your skin to stay hydrated!

      Well, i feel like my skin sometimes feel dehydrated, especially when i'm inside the room with AC for a long time (like everyday, duh). Usually i  used Bioderma Hydrabio Brume, a water spray that works nicely on my skin, refreshed my skin and makes it hydrated. But somehow i still feel it's not enough, even though dehydrated skin is temporary condition like i mention above because it can change daily, i still feel dehydrated skin needs to be taken care of. So i was a bit excited to try Bioderma Hydrabio Serum, especially because i'm so loving the Hydrabio Brume.

     Basically i haven't try it for a really long time, more or less it's been around 2 weeks. So far i already feel the differences, so i want to share the serum review for you guys who also experiencing dehydrated skin.

      Let's see the packaging first:

      The serum packed in a box with white and blue dominant colors, blue means Hydrabio range i guess. Like other Bioderma product, the packaging is simple and looks professional. You can see the product knowledge and how to use the product in the packaging as well (in french, english, and some other language).

How to use:
Apply Hydrabio Serum morning and/or evening all over the face and neck, after cleansing with Hydrabio Lait (cleansing milk) or Hydrabio H2O and toning with Hydrabio Tonique (toning lotion). Use alone or before a cream.

Aqua/Water/Eau, Glycerin, Xylitol, Sodium Polyacrylate, Mannitol, Rhamnose, Fructooligosaccharides, Laminaria Ochroleuca Extract, Niacinamide, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Trideceth-6, PEG/PPG-18/18 Dimethicone, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hexyldecanol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Disodium Edta, Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance (Parfum). [BI 568V1]

      This is what inside the box. The bottle made with some thick plastic, so don't worry if it falls. The size is just perfect, not to big or small, can still easily bring anywhere. The blue cap can easily be open and you need to turn the nozzle to the right before you can pump it. Yep, it's a twist and lock kind of pump, so convinient.  

      So it's totally easy to absorb as it almost looks like water, only thicker. It doesn't leave a weird feeling, not leaving any sticky feeling as well, just absorb like that, leaving the skin completely moist and hydrated. I fell in love since i first try it. It moisturized the skin and i feel like my skin dehydrated. I know the different because when touch, my skin feels different, more moist, supple and elastic. It doesn't really show in the camera, so i didn't take any picture of it. But trust me, you can feel the different. It also makes the skin feel refreshed when applied.

     Anyway i usually use it day and night, all over my face and also neck. I don't need a lot of amount since it's already hydrated the skin so much with only a little amount. I usually use like 1-2 pump and spread it all over my face. It always feels nice when applying the serum hehe. Anyway since it already makes my skin hydrated and moist, i usually skip to put more face cream after that.

     Oh! I also proved that it makes a nice makeup base! It claim that its fresh and melting texture provides an excellent makeup base, which is true, because your skin does feels really soft and prepared after using this serum, just like when you use primer. No cracking foundation so far and even the thickest foundation of mine blend perfectly fine when using Hydrabio Serum! Pssstt, and i only blend it with fingers, not using any tools, so it makes me fell in love deeper.


     I love it! It's so light and so easy to absorb without leaving any weird or sticky feeling. In fact it does feels like water and somehow the fragrance also remind me of water or something refreshing. I totally love how it makes my skin feels hydrated even when i'm not using any moisturizer after that. Anyway it stills contain perfume, but fine by me. Oh oh! It also became a number 1 serum in France ( test by in France 2012-2014), how cool is that?

+ it already moisturized the skin even without another cream
+ hydrated skin
+ immediate and long term hydration
+ easy to absorb
+ no sticky feeling

+ quite a nice base makeup as it leaves your skin really soft and prepared
+ refreshing when applied

Overall Rating: 4.5/5

     Well, i suggest you try this serum, especially if you think you have dehydrated skin, which might occur because of the weather or because the AC on your room. You might sometimes think it's not that important, but i think better think about it now that sorry later hehe. Hydrated skin gives you a younger and healthy skin! Totally recommend this Hydrabio Serum! <3  Now, i really want to try the other product from this Hydrabio range (so far i tried two). For more info you can check: | #BiodermaIndonesia

      If you're curious enough with this serum, you can easily buy it at Sociolla (use my discount code SBNLALUK), Guardian, Watsons, Century, AEON, and Galeries Lafayette! And oh, don't forget to try the Hydrabio Brume as well, because other that refreshing, it also helps maintaining the water on your skin, makes it more hydrated and also makes a good makeup setting spray!

     Anyway that's all for now, i hope you do enjoy this review. If you have any question don't hesitate to leave some comments! See ya on my next post!
