Biotherm Aquasource Deep Hydration Replenishing Gel Review

February 24, 2017

Hi guys! How have you been? My today's review its going to be about my HG moisturizer and I just LOVE it. I bought the whole set during Christmas Sale which was really worth it.

Basic Information

Weight: 50 ml / 1.69 fl.oz
Made in: France
Price: SGD 70

Product Description

  • Hydration 5 layers deep within the upper layers of the epidermis for long-lasting comfort. 
  • The improved Aquasource formula comes in the original pleasant gel texture women have loved from the start. 
  • A keystone of Aquasource’s hydrating efficacy, any formula changes are made if they don’t alter its iconic, cooling, fresh gel texture.
  • Aquasource gel is suitable for all skin types even sensitive.
  • For Normal / Combination Skin
  • 24 Hours deep hydration with thermal plankton cellular water

Packaging

The product comes in a glass jar. The glass jar is fairly heavy, which is not travel friendly. It doesn’t come with a spatula which is not so hygienic. 

Ingredients

Aqua, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Alcohol Denat, Prunus Armeniaca Kernel Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter, Mannose, C12-13 Pareth-23, C12-13 Pareth-3, PEG/PPG/Polybutylene Glucol-8/5/3 Glycerin, Ceramide 3,Carbomer, Zinc Gluconate, Sodium Hydroxide, Serine, Divinyldimethicone/ Dimethicone Copolymer, 2-Oleamido-1,3-Octadecanediol, Cholesterol, Ammonium Polyacryldimethyltauramine, , Disodium EDTA, Hydroxypalmitoyl Sphinganine, Vitreoscilla Fermen, Citrulline, Xanthan Gum, Menthoxypropanediol, Tocopherol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, CI 19140, CI 42090, Linalool, Limonene, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-cyclohexene carboxaldehyde, Citral, Hexyl Cinnamal, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzyl salicylate, Linalool, Parfum.

Texture & Fragrance

It comes in a thick gel texture which easily absorbs into the skin. I love the refreshing fragrant, though I don’t really know how to describe that.

Application

  1. Use every morning and / or evening on cleansed and toned skin.
  2. Place one dose into the palm of the hand
  3. Using both hands, smooth over the face in an outward pattern starting from the centre. Finish by the neck. Avoid eye contour.

My Impression 

I love how moisturized my skin feels when I use this product. This is especially true when I’m in an air conditioned environment for a long time.   My skin doesn’t feel tight even hours after application. I also do not get any break outs from using this which is amazing for my sensitive skin. Since I only use this product in the day, it lasted me for 8 months. Even though it’s pricey, it’s worth the price for me. It's my new HG moisturizer and I would purchase this again!
