Biotherm Skincare Review

August 1, 2016

Biotherm ProductsFashion and beauty go hand-in-hand, so it should come to no surprise that, I like to get my hands on skincare products that give my skin a boost, making it smoother and clearer no matter what country I’m in. Flying around, living in an incredibly dry climate and sitting in the car for long periods of time takes its toll. As an avid traveler based in Los Angeles, I’ve been battling severely dehydrated skin and I just don’t drink enough water on a daily basis  – but hey, who does?

Years ago, I was introduced to the Biotherm Aquasource normal to combination skincare line and really enjoyed them.  I’ve since changed products a few times and was delighted to reintroduce myself to their other skincare products, which I’ve tested over 3 weeks.

Body Refirm Stretch Oil – 4/5

I am very, very lucky to only have minor stretch marks around the hips, which I believe most women have, so I applied this oil on the upper hip area.With a scent that is reminiscent of refreshing lime (and reminds me of citrus cocktails!), the oil feels really light. I’d equate it to a light tanning oil that absorbs really well.  I didn’t see any changes to within a 3 week period, but I love how soft my skin feels now.  If you don’t have stretch marks or cellulite, this is still nice to get soft, even skin. For that alone, I’d recommend it for anyone looking for a softer, smoother skin. I can’t verify that any stretching or stretch marks have been reduced, since I have very minor ones and see no difference, but it definitely makes your skin feel really nice.

Aqua Gelée Ultra Fresh Body Replenisher – 5/5

I’m one of those girls who doesn’t like receiving hand and body creams as gifts. I almost never use them. I find most of them way too heavy, don’t absorb well or have strong scents, which give me headaches. Incredibly light in texture and smell, I’m happy to apply this Aqua Gelée Ultra Fresh Body Replenisher again and again. After using it once, I knew I wouldn’t need to keep testing it to know I’d like it – this instantly moisturizes my dehydrated skin and absorbs very quickly without feeling thick or sticky, and it has a light fresh scent.  You can see my dry skin on the right of the knee.  After using it for a few weeks, I found the area more hydrated.

Biosource Balm-To-Oil – 4.5/5

I wear make up about 2 to 3 times a week and used the Biosource Balm-to-Oil only on those particular evenings. As you massage the balm in, it melts into the skin. It is so incredibly smooth and creamy, and completely takes the makeup off leaving the face feeling clean. It leaves the skin feeling soft and more moisturizing than the oil cleanser I was using. I get hormonal breakouts, and after adjusting to environmental changes with my move from a more humid climate from East Coast Canada to dry climate in West Coast USA, this didn’t irritate my skin at all. It doesn’t have the most alluring scent when you’re inhaling from the top of the jar, but I didn’t notice it when cleansing and it doesn’t affect the performance of the product.

Aquasource Night Spa 4/5

The Aquasource Night Spa appears really thick, but surprisingly absorbs into the skin well. I didn’t get that nice glow in the morning when I used this over a toner, but when supplemented with with my softener – which helps your skin absorb your moisturizers – I got better results and more hydration. This might just be because my skin is incredibly dehydrated, so I either have to apply twice before bed, or use my softener as the base. With enough hydration, it helps with the acne scar healing process. My skin is sensitive and the Aquasource Night Spa did not cause any breakouts or irritate my skin. I’d use this for travel when my skin isn’t quite as thirsty.

With a full face of make up, I used the Balm to Oil cleaner to remove everything from my face, and added moisturizer to my clean skin. Eye make up is always where I see residue if the cleanser doesn’t perform well, and the Balm to Oil did a really nice job.

Overall, I am pleasantly surprised and happy with the Biotherm products. I think there are some huge improvement to their traditional Aquasource Normal to Combination Skin line that I’ve used.  The cleanser performs really well. The body cream is also one that I favor, so I’d definitely take those with me on my next big trip.

    Thanks for the fabulous and honest review of the products. I too am one that doesn’t fully take advantage of hand creams that I receive as gifts, but my hands are always dry too so I should! Thank you for sharing these wonderful products! xoxo, Christine

    Wow, all of these products sound amazing. I have yet to find a product that actually works to reduce stretch marks. I have been skinny all my life and never had kids, but still have stretch marks on my *tiny* butt! Don’t know how it’s possible… people say it’s because I grew tall fast but who knows! Soft skin does sound good though so maybe I’ll get the stretch mark oil for that and see if it will reduce my stretch marks in the long haul too 😉 Thanks for sharing! xo, sharon

    Love how well the makeup remover performed! Definitely where you can spot if a product is succesful or not, I always find myself having mascara left by the roots. But biotherm’s looks really good! Xx

    I love when ladies do full reviews and really test out the products for a good three weeks, so kudos! I’ve never been a fan of cellulite or stretch mark creams. I think they are sort of gimmicky, as most cellulite is just genetics. These products sound so lovely. I am especially interested in the body replenisher, as I do hate creams that are too thick and have super strong scents, which is so hard to find! This one sounds awesome. Currently I am using a few Murad products and Sunday Riley. 🙂

    The Balm Oil indeed did a good job, it is sometimes so hard for me to get a good makeup remover. When I wake up I always have some left but I think I should definitely get this one if it is that good!

    Such a great review, girlie! That cleanser performed amazingly well, you can’t see any residue, which is something I have a hard time with when trying to use a cleanser alone. I’ll have to look into this brand. Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you’re having the best week so far!
