Review: SebaMed Starter Pack

This is god sent! I bought this after I trashed Vichy and I've been promised good results so far! =D

SebaMed is a German brand of of Sebapharma GmbH & Co. KG which manufactures skin products have a slight acidic PH of 5.5. On average the pH value of the skin is 5.5. The slightly acidic pH value of the skin surface wards off germs and pathogens. Today, SebaMed is sold across 70 countries and some dermatologists recommend this brand besides Simple.

Imagine my horror when I compared the pricing in other countries to how much we can get it in Malaysia. In Thailand, I heard the price is as high as a counter product in Malaysia and in the USA, it's almost dollar for dollar price @@;; As for Indonesia, I read people are complaining how expensive the product is.

The kit costs RM25.90, pretty much the same as Vichy's starter pack and comes with a complete set of cleaner, toner and moisturizer UNLIKE VICHY >_>

Clear Face Teenage Cleansing Liquid (50ml)

    Product features:

  • Especially suited for cleansing in inflamed forms of acne (Papulo-pustulous acne)

  • Also recommended for cleansing of dry skin and in adult acne

  • Clinically tested

They call it a cleansing liquid but to be precise, it's foam =/ I was a bit worried since I've heard people complaining that foam cleansers in general tend to dry their skin. Thankfully, nothing serious happened :3 my face is still purging oil like an oil plant, ok not so bad but I still need to wipe my face in the middle of the day. The cleanser comes in a pump bottle with a cover so... no leaks yay!

The foam feels very gentle on my face =3, about 1 1/2 pumps was enough to cover my face generously with lather. The directions said to leave it on for 5 mins, you can feel the bubbles start top pop on your skin~~ =D Overall I didn't have any problems with this products and I get the squeaky clean feel I've always wanted! *w*/

Clear Face Teenage Deep Cleansing Toner (50ml)

    Product features: 
  • Witch hazel soothes irritated skin and has an astringent effect to contract the pores

  • Removes excessive oil, sebum and dirt particles from the skin and disinfects it with alcohol

  • Cucumber extract and hydrolyzed silk provide moisture to protect the skin against dehydration

  • Panthenol supports the healing of acne lesions

  • pH value of 5.5 stabilizes the acid mantle

  • Especially recommended for oily and combination skin to remove excessive oil after cleansing the skin

  • Best suited for the use on the problematic T-zone

First thing about this toner.... IT BURNSSSSS OH GOD IT BURNSSSSSS >A< And I normally pop out my oil seeds before I bathe so after I shower, I apply the toner and start writhing in pain on my bed and hug my bolster tight tight =(. Shouldn't be that painful unless you have big cysts that you scratch out like me. No pain no gain as they say and I'm not complaining since my skin complexion seems better.

Clear Face Care Gel (10ml)

    Product features: 
  • Panthenol supports the healing of acne lesions

  • Hyaluronic acid increases the moisturizing binding capacity of the skin

  • Allantoin smoothes rough scaly skin

  • No oils and emulsifiers

  • No perfume

  • No colorants

  • Well suited for the care of all types of acne-prone skin

This gel is quite light but I find that it doesn't glide that smoothly on my skin. It feels a bit sticky and takes quite a while to get absorbed into my skin. I find my Garnier Aqua Defense glides more smoothly on my skin so that tub lasted more than a year where as SebaMed's Care Gel needs around the size slightly bigger than a 10 cent coin to cover my face.


Overall Results:
After my skin care regime, my face always feel a bit sticky. Most probably due to the moisturizer but when I wake up, my face looks so fresh and my pimples are healing bit by bit. Progress is slow but it's there :3, my cysts are slowly shrinking and clearing up. Only thing left is the blood clots that seem to be much fonder of my face than the cysts were. Will probably see a derma on this once my cysts are gone.

Also, I haven't had a single breakout in the past 2 weeks! How great is that!!! =D One range that finally solves my pimple problems and prevents breakouts!!! Best part is this sample pack might take a while to finish since they were so generous with the quantity! My only complaint about this product is... the bottle isn't transparent!! so I can't tell when it will finish!! XD;; But it's a small problem I can live with if it is solving my face problem :3

PS: this post was drafted since last Thursday but I was just so lazy to complete it or do my research


  1. I think the Garnier Aqua Defense moisturiser you're using, is it transparent or light green in colour? I have two versions of the same product and both glide o quite smoothly for me.

  2. I used the green one =D Lasted more than a year sia hahaha. Never got a chance to try the Yellow one
