Ever heard of SebaMed and its Clear Face collection?
It’s a brand that formulates products with a pH of 5.5, which is considered ideal for healthy skin. I came across it recently and decided to try the deep cleansing facial toner and anti-pimple gel.
This review includes full details about the products, notable ingredients and my overall thoughts on the effectiveness.
SebaMed Clear Face Deep Cleansing Facial Toner
It claims to ‘combat pimples, blackheads and skin impurites’ and ‘counteracts formation of new pimples’. It featured ingredients like:
– Panthenol to support skin regeneration,
– Hamamelis virginiana extract to calm irritation and improve skin appearance and
– Silk protein and allantoin to soothe and moisturize the skin.
It’s recommended for acne-prone skin and I got it because of its impressive lineup of main ingredients. Even though I couldn’t find a full ingredients list, I was still interested in trying out the main ingredients.
I later discovered the ingredients list was at the bottom of the product pack; it seems to be a SebaMed thing as the anti-pimple gel also had its list at the bottom.
It has panthenol, an humectant with lots of benefits. Panthenol is great for hydrating, healing acne and acne scars, etc. I’m pretty sure some of my past products had this ingredient and I didn’t realise it.
Other notable ingredients include allantoin, polyglyceryl-4 laurate/succinate and cucumis sativus fruit extract.
Allantoin acts as a skin protectant, has anti-inflammatory properties and tons of other benefits.
Cucumis extract is a fancy word for cucumber extract and also has lots of benefits.
Polyglyceryl-4 laurate is plant-derived and works as an emollient/ emulsifier. Basically, most of the products were good to go.
However, ingredients like alcohol didn’t sit well with me. I also discovered that the hamamelis extract was witch hazel and that also made me a bit cautious. Despite these, I was quite impressed with the other ingredients after learning about their benefits.
I experienced some irritation during my first weeks of use and it might have been due to the witch hazel.
It didn’t dry out my skin despite the alcohol. However, I experienced some itching and irritation during my first weeks of daily use. I had to revert to my previous toner for a while. Afterwards, I switched to using it few days a week.
Allantoin, silk protein and panthenol really helped with keeping my skin hydrated. My face also felt ‘smoother’ after a couple weeks and I didn’t notice any blackheads. Overall, it had a positive effect on my skin.
Would I recommend? Definitely. I’d also suggest to slowly incorporate it into your routine to avoid the irritation I experienced.
Would I repurchase? I’m looking to try out new toners for now but yes, I like it enough to repurchase later.

SebaMed Clear Face Anti-Pimple Gel
It’s a colorless gel with “special active ingredients to counteract inflammation and dry pimples”. It also claims to “protect against the development of new pimples” when applied to problem zones. Like all brands, they used the same marketing technique of advising use with other products from the collection for effectiveness.
I decided to try it because I was having major breakout and I wanted to test its claims.
The highlight ingredients are panthenol, allantoin, cucumis sativus fruit extract, hydrolyzed silk and bisabolol.
Bisabolol is an underrated ingredient with lots of benefits; it helps to soothe the skin amongst several other benefits.
Hydrolyzed silk (silk protein) is another ingredient with an unbelievable number of benefits. It improves skin firmness and elasticity, helps to seal in hydration, reduce fine lines, etc. This ingredient is also in the deep cleansing toner.
Other ingredients include hamamelis virginiana extract, propylene glycol and glycerin.
I followed the routine of applying it directly to budding pimples at least once a day. The gel reduces the swelling, helps to dry it out and heals the pimple opening. I also didn’t experience any itching or irritation with this product.
However, it doesn’t help to prevent pimple spots so I use a serum to take care of that.
The only con is that it’s a very small tube, only 10ml. You need to reapply several times a day and that means frequent repurchases.
Would I recommend? Definitely. You can apply to each pimple 1-3 times a day to slowly go through the tube. You can also use it in combination with the COSRX acne patch for developed pimples.
Would I repurchase? Definitely. It’s tiny but it works so I plan to repurchase.
