Biotherm

Biotherm is a French luxury skin care company whose first products originated from a thermal spring in the Pyrenees. The healing properties of this mineral water were observed by Dr. Jos Jullien in the 1950's. Together with Jeanine Marissal, a Monaco-based cosmetician, they started Biotherm. The company was acquired by L'Oréal in 1970.

Toners -Biotherm -Skin Oxygen Oxygenating Lotion

I got a sample of this. Wait, are they kidding? First of all, "oxygenating"... even if that were good for the skin (highly doubtful), there is nothing in this product that would "oxygenate" the skin. To claim that this somehow "helps de-pollute the skin", whatever that means, is laughable. You may think I'm being rude, but it really irritates me when people blithely recycle marketing blurbs in their reviews without even stopping to think, Is this total bulls**t?
The product in any case is so full of harmful and irritating ingredients that I did not even dare put any on my face - I wiped the back of my neck with it to refresh myself given its high alcohol content and strong fragrance.
Peppermint water, peppermint oil and menthol for example are well-known irritants, as are rosemary, thyme and oregano, clove and eugeniol, and geraniol, limonene and linalool (fragrance oils). Denatured alcohol is the third ingredient.... c'mon Biotherm, this product is a joke.

Here is the inci: Aqua, mentha piperita (=peppermint) leaf water, alcohol denat., caprylyl/capryl glucoside, arginine, propanediol, salicylic acid, cymbopogon schoenanthus (=lemongrass) oil, citral, citric acid, rosmarinus officinalis leaf oil, menthol, mentha piperita oil, geraniol, glycerin, limonene, eugenol, cymbopogon nardus (=citronella) oil, eugenia caryophyllus (clove) flower oil, origanum heracleoticum (oregano) flower oil, thymus vulgaris (thyme) flower/leaf oil, linalool, citronellol, chlorella vulgaris (algae) extract, vitreoscilla ferment, colour.

p.s. arginine, thyme oil and chlorella are considered antioxidants... in a product that is supposedly oxygenating.

Lip Treatments -Biotherm -Beurre de Levres

It is really moisturizing and it feels good, bur the smell is strong, I still can smell it after half an hour and I don't find the smell to be pleasant at all. I would not buy this again.


Moisturizers -Biotherm -blue therapy oil-in-cream

I love this cream. I find it's more of a jellyish balm than a cream, thought. I use it in the winter, when the cold weather, dry air and central heating can turn a person's skin to jerky. I use this as the final step for layering over my serums at night, and it does a fabulous job of locking in moisture. When it's really cold and starts to hit the -30°C/-22°F outside, I use it in the daytime too and it's been a real skin-saver. This is quite fragranced, so sensitive folks beware. I've repurchased several times and will continue to do so for as long as Biotherm continues to make it.


Cleansers -Biotherm -Baume (balm) to oil

I've been using this for several months now, and it's pretty good. It's quite emollient, gets all my makeup off (including waterproof mascara) and does a nice job of cleansing. It's not as 'slippy' or clean rinsing as some others I've tried (Banila's Clean It Zero is my favorite), and is slightly 'waxy' feeling, so I always do a double cleanse when using this just to make sure I've gotten everything off. This product does have scent, so folks that are sensitive may want to tread carefully. All in all, a decent product. It does what it's supposed to. In comparison, I find this cleansing balm to be very similar to Clinique's, in both texture and efficacy.


Moisturizers -Biotherm -skin oxygen cooling gel

I really do like Biotherm products, but it's unfortunate most come in these jars. I find this to be unhygenic and wasteful of ingredients in the formula. I wish this came in a pump, because I really like the texture and feel of the product. It's great for oily skin, and helps with being hydrating enough without being sticky or too heavy. The scent isn't overpowering, and my skin feels nice and smooth after using this product.
