Bioderma Atoderm Huile de douche

Do you suffer from dry or irritated skin? Dry, very dry to irritated skin results in an alteration of the skin barrier, which leads to dehydration and facilitates the penetration of irritants in the skin. This results in the skin losing its suppleness and softness. Think dull, rough, tight and itchy! You’ll also find that aggravating factors such as the environment, cold, temperature variation and pollution attack the skin on a daily basis. This is why using a product that is conscious of your skin’s sensitivity is a must!

Bioderma’s Atoderm Huile de douche soothes and protects from external aggressions thanks to its exclusive formula composed of vegetal biolipids, vitamin PP and Barrier Skin Therapy patent.  Vegetal biolipids* soothe the feeling of tightness, increase the resistance of the skin by recreating the protective film of the skin. Vitamin PP stimulates lipid synthesis, and allows the reconstruction of the skin barrier for the long term. The product comes with Skin Barrier therapy™ patent that biologically prevents the binding of the bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus) responsible for aggravation of skin irritation.


Oats have been used to cool and calm the skin for thousands of years. They have an anti-inflammatory effect, which can help to relieve itching and calm allergic reactions. When infused in water, oats produce oat milk, which is used in many Lush products, making them skin safe and gentle overall.

If you're looking for an oat-milk embrace too, the Lush Oaty Creamy Dreamy shower cream offers skin a hydrating wash that soothes and satiates the skin. 

Take things a few notches higher with a Cleopatra-like experience with the Ceridwen's Cauldron Bath Melt. This oaty, milky melt works its magic just as you drop the muslin pouch into your bathwater. Watch as it releases its creamy oat milk, turning the water into a delicious spell of frankincense, rose and sandalwood. 

Prefer a softening shower gel or body wash that has an addictive sweet fragrance? Luscious honey, lotus flower and tiger lily combined with Brazilian orange and bergamot deliver a softening bath experience with the Lush Honey I Washed The Kids Shower Gel. Rich honey soothes, hydrates and cleanses the skin as you are embraced in a seductively, soothing scent. Don’t want to leave your shower? Shhhh….we won’t tell!
