This review about Biotherm’s Biosource is one that I’ve been really excited about writing. It was thrust into my hands during my French Pharmacy experience and recommended for me over a more expensive cleanser on my list so I wasn’t about to say no. Though at first glance I totally judged the bottle by it’s design and thought: hrmph, that doesn’t look impressive – it looks like a large bottle of hand soap! But I was wrong. Oh so wrong because it was love at first use…
Yes – you read that right: it was love at first use and I’m not ashamed to say it. Today the large, minty green bottle sits proudly in my cupboard, and I smile when I see it.
This cleanser has a delicate, creamy texture that massages well into my skin. It doesn’t foam (yes!), cleanses well, and it feels fresh against my face so I prefer it for a morning cleanse to help me feel awake, but it also makes a lovely second cleanse in the evening. Since I’ve been using it I’ve seen an improvement with my acne, and while it’s not gone (acne, while caused by blocked pores, is hormonal, after all) I feel like my skin is getting a good-quality cleanse that’s not irritating. For reference, my skin is oily, struggles with dehydration and suffers with hormonal acne.
Sadly Biotherm doesn’t have stockists in the UK outside of select airports, but I found a link on All Beauty (though I haven’t shopped with them before) and on Amazon so you’re not totally out of luck if you’d like to try it!
Have you tried any of Biotherm’s range? What did you think of it?
