So a month ago, I was sponsored by The Beauty Club to do a review on the Biotherm Aquasource range meaning that no, I did not purchase these products :) It was really either this or the Clinique 3 step skincare system because a few of my friends used/still use Biotherm and they said that the range really cleared up their acne. And seeing that I wasn’t doing well the harsh way by using proactiv, why not the kinder approach? That was probably my number one desire and I have used this range for over a month, so here are the three stars of the show:
Step 1: Biotherm Biosource Hydra-mineral Cleanser Toning Mousse
This baby feels so good when lathered up onto the face – it’s creamy and has a wonderful scent to it. Here’s a description on the back:
“With a 70-mineral complex and balancing zinc. Cleanses and tones without drying skin out. Skin is instantly cleansed and balanced from 7 days, it radiates with a healthy glow. Lather with water in the palm of you hand before applying to a wet face, then rinse off with water.”
My skin felt mucho hydrated after using this and a lot cleaner for some reason although I didn’t see any tangible results. The experience of using this is worth it enough though – super duper creamy and a lot nicer to the skin because there are no exfoliating particles like Proactiv does but I sometimes feel that if it doesn’t how will it ever get anything out? Apparently foam particles are small enough to deeply penetrate pores and pull out existing dirt and residues leaving skin refreshed! But don’t expect too much foam, this is about it:
2. Biotherm Biosource Clarifying Lotion
“Enriched with trace elements and essential mineral salts, this clarifying lotion adds the perfect finishing touch to cleansing and revives the skin’s radiance while providing a sensation of freshness. Apply to the face using a cotton pad”
Honest to God, I really don’t feel a difference when it comes to comparing this with other toners. :)
3. Biotherm Aquasource Non Stop Gel
This is fo sho spotlight stealer. It is an AWESOME moisturiser. I love it. Biotherm boasts that there is 5000 liters of thermal spring water packed into a single jar and it’s no wonder! The texture of this is to die for, its a perfect gel and when applied, it has this super cooling feeling! A great life saver in any dry country I bet! One glitch – it takes a little while longer to blend in than normal but you know its dense packed with minerals because you’ll feel it.
Here’s what it looks like inside:
So did it work??
No, not really. Actually, not at all. It didn’t clear up my acne like I wanted it to and it was a bit frustrating. But honestly it’s my fault. No where on this line does it say that it will clear up acne, it was my own decision to take the kinder approach and I suffer for it :) BUT it really did hydrate my skin. I used to go to counters and have SAs tell me that my skin looks a little dry, but with biotherm, thats not a problem anymore! It totally deleted flakiness and that is what its supposed to really do.
Thumbs up for hydration – 4.5/5.
