This felt great when I first put it on...but after a week I had these black heads, white heads, cycts, n the most terrible skin!!! Then I realized it was non comedogenic!!! And the worst thing was that none of the specialists were able to help me when I went from the Bay, to Sears to Shoppers, then eventually emailed them at BiothermE-CommerceUSA@ca.loreal.com and still nothing back from them!!! For the prices they charge, I expect much better customer service... Very very very dissatisfied...

I have been using this moisturizer for years. There are 2, I use the more gel like moisturizer. The aqua source system cleared up my acne which I had for years, it contains zinc. I used to have write oily skin, this was the only moisturizer that never left me with an oily forehead in the afternoon. It's a light gel like cream, but very moisturizing. Whilst pregnant my skin became dry so I used this plus apricot oil on my face at night but probably could have aul just used this product. I use it day and night. You only need a small amount so I don't find the price for the cleanser toner and moisturize that bad

Oh my God! This is my HG moisturizer!!! Whatever I tried (clarins gentle day cream, chanel hydramax beauty cream, la roche posay hydreane,) just wasn't THAT good! I have dry-sensitive skin with some imperfections and flakiness and this ,moisturizes and clears up my skin very well! I never noticed any redness or irritations like other people claim.... Although I have super sensitive skin. It's texture is very light but not watery or runny! It feels weird good when you apply it....like cream-powder or something like that... Its scent is pretty light and just enough to refresh you. Really good product! I will continue to buy this for many many years.

I love this cream; I've been using it for 7 years. Sometimes I need a little extra moisture in addition to it in winter, but not often, and for the rest of the year, it's perfect. I love the texture and the fragrance.

This line of Aquasource gave me the WORST case of cystic acne of my life. I discovered it in my mom's stash of stuff she doesn't use anymore, and unfortunately I found out why for myself. It gave her very bad cystic acne too. I just read up on Biotherm on beautypedia.com and this stuff is obviously not "natural" as they would like consumers to believe!! It is FULL of awful ingredients that are bad for skin!! I avoid this entire brand like the plague because every product I've tried has given me depression-inducing painful cystic acne (this product being the worst of them all), and I have otherwise great skin. Well, at least now I know why and it's not just me. There are obviously a lot of other reviewers who've had the same unfortunate experience. Even to those who don't have bad reactions to this.. why not put something with healthy ingredients on your face instead of something that has ingredients known and proven to cause harm in the short and long term? I just don't think companies who sell such products should be in business.

Texture is good for my combination skin in summer but the scent irritates my skin and I broke out in a rash. Will not repurchase. I prefer Marcelle's Hydra C line which also has a gel cream which is good for combo skin.

This was terrible for my skin! I advise you to stay away if your skin is sensitive/oily/combination. It made me break out and I haven't broken out in months (one week before using this I'd been trying a new exfoliator and my skin was actually better than ever as a result). The price is also ridicuous for something that doesn't deliver and I'm glad I only used the sample. In terms of the feel of the product, I tried it twice and it gave me mixed results. First time I thought I felt the hydrating effects as my skin felt soft and plump. It probably went for 2 hours before it all started looking shiny and oily. Second time it went on very matte and my skin didn't feel hydrated at all. It did feel slightly irritating however and I went to wash it off not long after. The smell itself also isn't very appealing to me. It's quite strong and I think some people would like it, but I went for biotherm because it's supposedly natural. There's too much fragrance for me to think it's natural. Finally, like I mentioned before, my skin had recently improved: my pores were barely visible, skin tone was better than it'd been for ages. This reversed all of that. Pinkish splotches in places and my pores are once again back to their previous size.
I guess I am kind of relieved I won't be buying this since it IS so expensive, but I know that it does work well for some people. My friend has very smooth skin and she uses this product but it's not for me.

Great summer hydrating cream (I have slightly dry complexion). Refresing texture, immediately absorbed. Seems to even out the tone of my skin, to close pores, to keep my face happy during the hot season.
2 of my close friends bought it also after my recommendation, both are satisfied with results (both oily skin).

My HG summer moisturizer.
I initially tried this product because I love their Source Therapy Skin Perfecter. It really does give your skin a gorgeous, luminous quality. But SP isn't a true moisturizer and I already use 2 serums.
I think the best way to describe ASP is as Aquapower moisturizer with SP added to it. It has a fantastic, creme/gel texture that's cool to the touch and a great aquatic smell. It appears almost shimmery in the jar but there's no shimmer in it. ASP applies very easily and is quickly absorbed. In warmer weather, it's more than enough moisture for me and doesn't get greasy or grimy looking.
I generally really like the Biotherm line. The Homme line is the best selling premium skincare in the world. I just wish they could find a retail partner in the U.S. so I wouldn't have to order it online. The glass jar is heavy but I think jars are easier to use.
Overall I give this 5 lippies. Definitely one to try.

It is now a tradition: Every birthday, I buy loads of Biotherm products. This year, I decided to give this "hydrating sorbet" a try and was not disappointed at all!
The texture is a bit weird the first time I must say, but it is fastly absorbed and does not leave my skin greasy or else. It is suppose to be for "all skin types", but I doubt this would be enough moisturizing for dry skin. I have combination skin with some imperfection and this is just the right amount of hydration I need!
This product will not make your imperfections disappear, but I found it gave my skin a nice healthy glow the first time I used it.

I bought this on a whim at duty free one time while travelling abroad. I was looking for a good day time moisturizer that could help control my oily face.
1. Upon application it feels grainy but it absorbed fairly well so no complaints there.
2. I like it's cool refreshing feel and its light smell is great for the day.
1. Not as moisturizing as I would have liked. I still develop oily face by mid-day.
2. The heavy glass container is inconvenient for travelling.
3. Switched between using it for day and then for night. Didn't seem to make a difference to my skin whatsoever.
After I finish using up the rest of the container I'm out on the market to search for something better.

Well, I just use it for night since I sleep in air conditioning room and I kinda feel my skin is dehydrated.
As the SA mention, this cream targeting on more mature skin (25+), I just 21 but I insist to get this one after try it on the counter and I feel the green (normal-combination) is not hydrating enough.
I quite like it in the beginning, but lately I kinda feel that this thing is not helping my complexion except my skin more moist.
1. Smells kinda nice.
2. The texture is weird like it has "sandy" texture which I love
3. Absorb quite quick
4. Hydrating nicely left skin feel moist all night long.
5. Nice cooling effect
1. Does not do what they promise, ONLY hydrating, I dont feel any "skin perfection"
2. Quite pricey RM140 ($45)
3. I have love and hate relationship with the packaging. I like it because I make sure no leftover, and the glass jar looks expensive. However, it is not very hygienic and I tends to use too much product.
I will not re-purchase because I think cheaper brand like neutrogena also able to provide me ONLY hydration, but I expect more than hydrating for $45 product.
Edit: Take off 2 lippies coz I found out this cream is the culprit of my never ending acne (although only 1 or 2 but my face never clear) After I finish this cream and switch to Hada Labo, I dont have any acne anymore after that. Shame!

This cream should be called skin imperfection! This is propbably the absolute worse cream that I have ever used. At first I loved the packagin, the texture of the cream and the way it cools your skin when you put it on. And then the velvety feel of your face. Which is why I kept using it for over a week. My skin became red, blotchy, I got pimples and blakcheads. I've never seen my skin react like this to anything. I stopped using this and was pouring on EL night repair (to get rid of the damamge) and started using a 2-year old tube of Kinerase that I still had left...and my face cleared up within 3 days!!!! This morning I woke up to beautiful, clear, even toned, radiant skin. Bye bye biotherm, maybe you should spend more money on your products and less on advertising.

I like this moisturizer even though itís not especificaly formulated for oily skin.
First of all, it moistures without leaving a heavy sensation on your skin, and it is easily absorbed. The texture of this cream itís something between a cream and a gel.
When I apply it in the morning, leaves my skin great (itís a pitty it does not have spf), but it tends to get oily as the day goes by.
I do like the amount of product you get for the price you pay.
I donít know if I will repurchase it again because Iím looking for the perfect moisturizer for me, and though this one is good, for me is not good enough.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Medium, Cool Hair: Black, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
I absolutely love this moisturiser. I've got combination skin that tends to get oilier as the day progresses, however, since I started using this moisturizer my skin seems to have settled down with the oil production and has become less prone to breakouts. This moisturiser has a nice light texture and absorbs extremely well. I do wish that it didn't come in a jar (or at least came with some kind of applicator) as it is pretty unhygienic to have to stick your finger in everytime you want to moisturise.
Admittedly, I had never even intended to try this moisturiser (especially not after the "5000 litres of spring water in a single jar" story they were trying sell) but I just had to have it after trying out the sample that Biotherm SA gave me.

I do not like the texture of this cream at all. it is like something left on your face after using. It is expensive, won't buy again.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Other Hair: Other Eyes: Other
I like the texture, the color, the feel and the smell of it. I'm not sure if it's very moisturizing since we are in summer and I use it at night. I don't see any drastic difference after using it
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
This moisturizer is used as a night moisturizer for me and I really like the texture of it. It has a "frosted, granite-like texture refreshing cooling-effect". I can never really feel the cooling effect but my skin definitely looks better after I use it at night and my skin has been smoother. I used to use the Aquasource Non Stop gel and I don't really notice much difference between the 2. But they're both pretty expensive but it is definitely one of the better moisturizers for me!
P.S. I'm a biotherm freak.
