Review: Biotherm Aquasource Skincare Range – Combo Skin

Hey Everyone,

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.

Here’s a youtube vid:

    I love love this range!!! It’s really made my skin feel super soft and it’s also brighten up my face.

    For acnes.. you should try their SOS range!! It’s helped alot!

    Me just finished the cleanser Of this ZIne one.. and next I’m going to try the blue color one.. for oily skin! It’s got copper.

  • icyabstract

    That moisturizer sounds amazing! Though I suppose in a hot climate like Singapore unless you’re using it in the AC is might be a little too thick feeeling on?

  • icefrost

    How much is the moisturizer? :) Just wondering if you know though you didnt purchase it, haha :)

  • roseannetangrs

    Ju Lee Zhang: It’s a great moisturiser, but not a quick one, it takes a while to work it in!
    Heavenlygorgeous: give it a try sometime, especially if you have dry skin :) its hydrating indeed :)
    Chantana: awesome! i still need to find my holygrail acne care – sigh :P
    Sara: haha it is although very true, it can feel quite thick after applied!
    icefrost: I’m not sure how much it is exactly but I will be heading down to ion tomorrow so I will check for you :)

  • everbluec

    I find that the moisturizer not really that thick (it’s a gel.. it doesn’t have those creamy thick feeling) … and I’m not sleeping in AC room most of the time… Anyway, I find that it’s a bit expensive (It’s SD$109 right? EVen after 30% it’s still ex!) So I use Garnier aqua non stop (I find that it work quite well and have the same smooth effect).
