I really enjoyed this cleanser but since I didn’t like the thick consistency, I decided to look for something else (and now I regret it). The cleanser (Bioderma Sébium Gel Moussant) that I purchased came with a pump so when I run out, I will be buying the Hyséac again but putting it in the pump to help with dispensing of product. I went through this cleanser faster than I would have liked because I kept using too much. I will also be buying the largest size that I can find. In the picture I took, it is very hard to see how thick the gel really is coming out of the tube… it feels quite a bit ‘thicker’ than Cetaphil (if you’ve ever used Cetaphil).
For the sizes available, I purchased the 150ml tube because that was the only size there. However, I have gone back to my pharmacy and I noticed that it had a larger size but I don’t remember the millilitres. Upon looking up the sizes, there were discrepancies of the actual container sizes… some stated 250ml others 300ml. But somehow, the US equivalent still stated 5 fl oz on the pictures of the packages!
150ml = 5 fl oz 250ml = 8.5 fl oz 300ml = 10 fl oz 500ml = 17 fl oz
I really recommend this gentle facial cleanser for those with combination/oily skin that is also sensitive. Though it is not fragrance free, the fragrance did not irritate my skin nor was it very strong… it was actually quite pleasant.
