Review: Biotherm Aquasource Skin Perfection


I’ve been using Biotherm Aquasource Skin Perfection as my day time moisturizer for a month plus and I thought it’s time for me to review this product!

For the Aquasource line, there is actually quite a few moisturizers. I got the skin perfection because the SA told me this is for all skin type and best for sensitive skin and when I tried the texture of this moisturizer, I was sold. It’s not a cream formula, neither is it a gel formula. It has a velvety soft skin texture which I really don’t know how to explain in words. You have to try out to have a feel of it.

From Biotherm’s website:

The first treatment in the Aquasource range to combine the equivalent of 5,000 liters of Thermal Spring Water with 35 million perfecting Aquakeep™ microshperes to provide 24h hydration. The refreshing frosted texture works like a re-surfacing glaze to reduce skin irregularities and dull complexion.

TEXTURE: Perfecting, frosted, granita-like texture with refreshing cooling-effect. Non-sticky and non-shiny.

INCLUDES: Aquakeep™ technology: Holds the equivalent of 5,000 liters of Thermal Spa Water for 24h non-stop intense hydration.
Beautifying pigments + Trace-Sugar: Restructures skin surface from within for a perfect skin.
Manganese Crystals + Cooling Agent: Boosts micro-circulation and activates adiance.

Touch. Velvety-soft skin texture
Feel. Moisturized skin 24h non stop
See. Crystal-clear glow

The word 24hr non-stop hydration made me buy this product. And after a month of trying, here’s what I’ve to say about this:

– Cooling effect when applied. Drops the skin temperature to prepare my skin for better makeup application.
– The texture is amazing and is easily absorbed.
– Sufficient hydrating power and kept my skin hydrated for at least 4 – 5 hours before oil starts to surface.

– Comes in a tub so it’s not as convenient and I’ve to use a spatula.
– Expensive and yet they do not provide a spatula. I had expected to be given one.
– Contains heavy fragrance which many said smelt soapy. I couldn’t take the heavy smell initially.
– I do not think this is suitable for sensitive skin since it contains fragrance and a little alcohol.
– Obviously it does not prove 24hr non-stop hydration.

Overall I give this a 7/10 …a nice cooling moisturizer with sufficient hydration in the summer time. … but just not good enough to be my favourite.

Will I purchase again?
Probably no.

  1. I disagree. Its the BEST moisturiser in the market. Super softening and perfecting. Almost impossible to live without once u hv used it and weighed it against other moisturisers available in the market. And for thr smell, well, its not soapy at all. Its rather pleasant.

  2. it’s a great moisturizer but not as a make-up base (for me)
    i tried it and my face looked like it had blotches all over 😦

Have something to say?
