Sebamed

If you've already checked out our review of Baby Sebamed here, you'll know how highly I rate it. 

To give a recap about the Sebamed range. The products have a pH value of 5.5 which is the same our skin. Our skin, being slightly acidic, keeps away pathogens that can cause disease, it prevents water loss and stops any pollutants or irritants getting in. By using a soap that has a different pH value to the skin it can weaken the skins protective barrier and cause dehydration, skin infection, irritations and allergies. 

After trying the Baby Sebamed range, I was very grateful when I was then sent the Sebamed range for me to try.  The products I was sent were:


Anti-Hairloss Shampoo
Out of the four shampoo's in the Sebamed range, the one I wanted to try the most was the Anti-Hair Loss shampoo. When I was pregnant with Charlie I suffered with severe anaemia. This in turn made my hair fall out in clumps. I hated it, I felt so self-conscious and wouldn't go out in case people noticed. Since his birth my anaemia has faded to an almost normal iron level but my hair loss is still there. Every morning I wake with hair all over my pillows and have to clean out my brush nearly every day. So of course when I heard that Sebamed did a shampoo that will help prevent the hair loss at such a small price I was a bit sceptical whether it would work. I've used it every day for a week now and so far there is a subtle difference in the amount of hair that falls out. Of course I wasn't expecting a miracle cure that would work straight away but must say I am pleasantly surprised that I have noticed a difference already. 

Anti-Stretch Mark Cream
Whether your wanting to prevent stretch marks or reduce existing stretch marks the anti-stretch mark cream is perfect with its natural avocado oil and shea butter providing excellent efficient care and protection of the superficial skin layers. 
I have mixed feelings about my stretch marks, sometimes I feel proud to have them and have the honour to be a mummy but other times I get very self conscious, especially when it comes to going swimming and people seeing them. I feel, although I wouldn't want them fully gone, I would love for them to be faded a bit so I'm not so scared of showing myself. The cream seems to be going well so far, I have only been using it for a short time but have noticed some of the smaller, light stretch marks are already starting to fade. Used over a prolonged time I can imagine it working very well.


Hydrating Body Lotion
Again, as with the Hand & Nail Balm, it protects the skins barrier function helping to naturally hydrate the skin. The rapeseed phytosterols protects and relieves itching. (phytosterol has an anti-inflammatory effect similar to cortisone but doesn't have the side-effects). The cream contains shea butter which smooths the skin and makes it feel very soft indeed.

Hand & Nail Balm
I find that my hands do get quite dry, I guess this is from all the washing up and cleaning drying out my skin. The hand & nail balm supports and protects the natural barrier function of the skin, it's absorbed quickly and leaves no greasy residue. The cream seems to help more around my nails as I've always had problems with my nails looking unhealthy.

Derma-Soft Wash Emulsion
A wash that is soft and protects against dryness and irritation during cleansing. It regenerates and balances the moisture of the skin making the skin soft and supple. I feel it's great for my face and after using it I feel clean and refreshed.
Day Defence Cream
This cream contains high levels of vitamin A and E providing intensive care for dry skin and also helping to calm flare-ups. It will improve elasticity of the skin and make skin feel smoother and more supple.

Night Intensive Cream

Used at night to protect your skin whilst your sleeping. It protects again dehydration of the skin and relieves itching. Again, improving the elasticity of the skin and giving a more smoother complexion.  



My final opinion on this range is that it's perfect for people like me, who have dry sensitive skin. With all the products being pH balanced, it means that they will protect the skin and not cause unwanted flare-ups as they actually support the skin own natural balance to restore hydration, giving an overall better complexion to the skin. The shampoo is also great for people who suffer with anaemia or any other problem that causes hair loss, to help strengthen the roots of the hair and stabilize the hair structure to stop dryness and breakages, helping to maintain strong hair.
