Bioderma Atoderm reviews: Gentle Shower Gel, Moisturizing Stick, PP Baume

Bioderma Atoderm shower gel review

The products: Bioderma Atoderm Gentle Shower Gel, Atoderm Moisturizing Stick, and Atoderm PP Ultra-Nourishing Balm

The Bioderma Atoderm shower gel is the biggest shower gel that you are ever going to use. Period. It’s a massive 1 litre (or bloody 2 lbs and 6.86 oz) of paraben-free, soap-free, hypoallergenic gentleness, and it’s totally dry skin friendly.

Hell, you could use this everywhere from your kids to your face to your junk (that’s one way to prevent the Junkface bar soap conundrum), and you’d still have 990 ml left to soap up… I don’t know; maybe a whole herd of cows?

Bioderma Atoderm review vs Bliss Soapy Suds The Body Shop Virgin Mojito

This is what 1L of bodywash looks like in comparison. (CAD proce per litre: $61, $19.95, $40).

The Atoderm line: Bioderma focuses on making gentle, pharmacy-style products that are targeted to specific skin types, and the Atoderm range is aimed at very dry to atopic sensitive skin. (That’s me!) (Although to be fair, Sensibio and Hydrabio, for sensitive skin and dehydrated sensitive skin, respectively, are also arguably me.)

But my point is — Atoderm products are designed to be gentle, non-stripping, and hydrating, so they’re the Bioderma line to turn to if you have eczema, psoriasis, or just generally fragile skin.

Bioderma Atoderm Gentle Shower Gel ($19.95 CAD)

The Atoderm line has four options for shower gels, all available in 500 ml or 1L bottles. This is actually their least gentle of all four (there’s also a gel-mousse, a cream, and an oil, which I really want to try) and it’s really nice.

A litre is a lot of shower gel to go through, but this stuff is awesome. It’s very lightly scented and is actually quite thin, which is something I’ve never encountered before but am very much enjoying 4111111111111111111111111111111 (Tuna says hi.)

You know how, when you walk into an Asian household, the soap is always a little thinner than it’s supposed to be? This is a like that, except minus the scolding grandma! The Atoderm Gentle Shower Gel is slick and easy to apply, and it’s easy to rinse off without having to scrub at your damaged skin.

Bioderma lip balm review Atoderm

Bioderma Atoderm Moisturizing Stick ($6.95 CAD)

There are two lip balms in the Bioderma Atoderm line, because Bioderma loves going overboard with their product ranges. (I joke, but I actually love this kind of precisely curated neuroses.)

This one’s the stick, and I LOVE it. It’s my absolute favourite lip balm right now, and I keep making everyone try it — it’s so good. The formula smells lightly of raspberry candy and is perfectly stiff, but it applies smoothly and keeps my lips nicely hydrated for a good couple of hours. It really is the ideal texture for a daytime lip balm!

Bioderma Atoderm moisturizing stick review

I’d say that this is more hydrating than Nuxe Reve de Miel, eos balms, and Burt’s Bees lip balms, but less hydrating than my potted Bobbi Brown Lip Balm SPF 15 (yes, that post is SEVEN YEARS OLD now) or the Osmia Organics Lip Balm that I love.

It’s about as hydrating as a Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment, but it’s way cheaper and much easier to work with… and it won’t slide onto the floor in the summer.

Bioderma PP Ultra-nourishing balm review ish

Bioderma Atoderm PP Ultra-Nourishing Balm ($29.95 CAD)

The Bioderma PP Baume contains silicones, so I couldn’t test it myself. However, it’s an extra-nourishing formula that joins a whole bunch of other Atoderm products, like the protective PO Zinc and everyday Creme (which comes in unscented & scented versions — so cool!)

If you’ve tried the PP Baume, let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear your thoughts on it. Here’s what other bloggers thought of it, though:

  • Natalie Loves Beauty notes that it absorbs almost instantly,
  • Writing Whimsy loves how hydrating its formula is, unlike the scented Atoderm PP Creme formula,
  • Lipstick and Lullabies tried it with her husband and found that it’s great for dryness, redness, and facial skin, and
  • Ruqaiya Kahn finds the formula a bit sticky BUT notes that it totally got rid of her itchy, dry leg skin.

    I know that shower gel is so giant shower gel for everyone! But such a great value for the whole family, and sensitive skin friendly so everyone can use. Thanks again for the link love!

    • Always! :)

      I'm definitely a big fan of the size of this shower gel. Bigger isn't always better, but in this case, it's great!

  • Thank you for the love!! We've seriously been using the shower gel every day, on 4 of us, for weeks and I still don't feel like we've put a dent in it! Amazing line! HI TUNA!

    • Hah, I can definitely see that! I'm using mine on my own, and man, it just lasts and lasts! I haven't used anything else in weeks, but I swear the shower gel levels just refuse to drop. :P

  • esharp1978

    The shower gel and lip balm sound so great. I tend to shy away from silicones in body products. I bought a few that had them but I got pimples on my shins, so yeah, nasty.

    I need to try this! I’m always on the market for new shower products, haha.

    • If you're a long showerer, you totally need this! It's awesome ;)

  • I love Bioderma's products for sensitive skin, I wish the whole range was easier to find in the US! I'm really tempted by their Hydrabio hydrating serum.
    My recent post Review: Valentia True Glow Eye Cream and Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask

    • Ooh, I haven't tried that one yet. I have a bottle of Hydrabio micellar water that I'm about to start testing, though (I love that Bioderma makes different makeup removers for different skin types!)

      Let me know if you ever need a Bioderma CP, okay? Most of the line is super easy to find here! ;)

      • Thanks for offering! I liked the Hydrabio H2O, I'm posting a review of it tomorrow actually! I think I prefer it to the original.

        • Ooh, really?? I'll keep my eye out for your review! I like their Sebsibio cleansing water, but there are definitely things I would change about it — namely, it would be nice if it didn't leave my skin feeling quite so dry! :p
