Cleansing and Caring With The pH Value of 5.5 | Sebamed


Sebamed is a skincare and body care brand that specifically design their products with a slight acidic pH of 5.5. After doing some research I found that our skin has something called an acid mantle, which is a fine, slightly acidic layer on the surface of the skin. This acts as a barrier to ward off bacteria and other contaminants that may penetrate and damage your skin. I've never looked at my body in a scientific way before but this trio has been a great starting point!

The Sebamed Face and Body Wash -£6.35* is 100% soap and alkali free, but don't be fooled a little goes a long way! I have super sensitive skin and this was completely safe to use on my face. No horrible breakouts and no dry patches. I took this to Alcudia as it's recommended to use in hot climates and found that the Chamomile extract made this cooling and refreshing after a long day on the beach.

The Sebamed Moisturising Body Lotion - £6.30* has a light formula so it's perfect for daily use and mornings when you're short for time. It absorbs quickly into the skin and doesn't leave a greasy residue. Like the Face and Body Wash this contains Chamomile which cools the skin leaving it feeling refreshed. This was brilliant to use post sunbathing, so if any of you gym bunnies are looking for a new body moisturiser I would definitely give this a go!

The Sebamed Everyday Shampoo - £5.10* was probably my least favourite out of the three. I am so picky with shampoos and rarely come across something that works well for my thin, flat hair. I love formula's that have a good lather, the more the merrier, and even half of the bottle couldn't get any good bubbles going. It was brilliant for getting the job done, but when it comes to my hair type I'll stick to what I know.

Knowing what I do now, I will definitely be a lot more cautious when using body products. As you probably know I am terrified of putting things on my face but always neglect the rest of my skin. Which is crazy when you think about how much it does for you.

What do you think of the Sebamed brand? Have you ever looked into the pH of your skin?
