I have oily skin and during summers,I cannot apply most of the moisturizers even though they claim to be oil free, but don’t live upto their claims. So, I asked my dermatologist to suggest a good, oil-free moisturiser and she suggested this gel. When I heard that I had to pay nearly Rs. 600 for just 50 ml, I had second thoughts since I did not whether it would work for me, but then, I had no other option, so bought it.
- Panthenol supports the healing of acne lesions.
- Hyaluronic acid increases the moisturizing binding capacity of the skin.
- Aloe barbadensis soothes irritated skin.
- The pH value of 5.5 biologically inhibits the growth of acne bacteria.
- Allantoin smoothes rough, scaly skin.
- No oils and emulsifiers.
- No perfume.
- No colorants
Nearly 600 for 50 ml.
Here’s how the gel looks like:
For demo, I have washed my hands a lot with soap, so they are now dry.
After I spread it evenly:
See, just a small amount is enough, it spreads smoothly.
Just in half a minute, it dries up totally leaving moisturised and smooth skin.
My Experience with Sebamed Clear Face Care Gel:
This is a very moisturizing gel. It really stays true to its claims of being “oil free.” It is very light on the skin and I don’t feel like I have applied some gel. I am very happy with this product. You just need a little amount of the product as it spreads very easily.
Pros of Sebamed Clear Face Care Gel:
- Oil free.
- Feels very light on the skin.
- When I apply it on my face, it quickly dries up making the skin smooth.
- Skin does not feel stretched. Normally, it does when you apply gel based crème.
- Does not contain any oil.
- Does not contain parabens or colourants.
Cons of Sebamed Clear Face Care Gel:
- The price is a bit on the higher side considering the quantity.
- Does not contain any SPF.
Will I Recommend Sebamed Clear Face Care Gel?
I would recommended it to people with oily skin and to those who are in search of a good oil-free moisturiser.
Below is a small article for those who want to know about skin’s ph value:
Our skin has a special feature, its surface is slightly acidic. On average the pH value of the skin is 5.5. The slightly acidic pH value of the surface of the skin wards off pathogens that cause disease. The balance of the ecosystem of the surface of our skin promotes harmless micro-organisms well-adapted to humans which are found in thousands on every square centimetre of the skin. Harmful bacteria and fungi do not tolerate the acidic pH value and are displaced by normal micro-organisms. In addition, the acidic pH value also stabilizes the skin’s function as a barrier. It ensures that lost fat in the horny layer is replenished quickly through reproduction. Another effect of the pH value of 5.5 is that the lipids in the horny layer retain their labyrinthine structure. This prevents water loss from the inside and penetration of pollutants or irritants from the outside. Thus the skin’s acid mantle performs an important protective function. Changes in the pH value of the skin weaken the protective function of the acid mantle. This promotes skin infection, dehydration, skin irritations and allergies.
The pH value shows whether a liquid is acidic, neutral or a base (alkaline). The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14. The neutral point is 7. Values over this point denote bases, values under this point acids. The further the value is away from 7, the stronger is the acid or base. Not only skin contact with strong acids or bases but also daily skin care can damage the protective acid mantle when soap or other care products whose pH value does not correspond to the skin’s natural pH value of 5.5 are used. This is true for most so-called preparations with skin neutral pH.
