Moisturizers -Biotherm - Aquasource Skin Perfection

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.
HG miracle broth for me. I use it as a toner and it just has a way of toning and removing al the makeup that might be left over, as well as dissinfecting my face and keeping acne at bay. You could litterally wipe this over your face for hours and it will not irratate your skin whatsoever. I knew it was amazing when it removed, in about 3 seconds without any effort whatsoever, the huge stain on my hand from Benefit's Chacha tint, after i had been scrubbing away with cleaners and soap to no avail.

Love this, the first cleanser I've repurchased over again. It regulated my skin and made it normal. I can ven wash my eye makeup with this. Absolutely everything comes off thr first wash with it. I also use the Sebium H2O after this as a toner. My skin has never been happier since i discovered this line from Bioderma. If your skin is sensitive acne prone, yet dry and/or oily with the wrong acne products try this line. It normalises your skin.
The last person to review this product is definitely speaking of a totally different product because the Cicabio cream is 100% NOT clear or anything close to transparent. In fact its not even white, the color resembles that of an unrefined product, like the color of clay. It does not feel like clay though, it feels like the richest cream you've ever put on your face. I had a reaction to something and broke out in tiny red pimples and whiteheads all over my neck. I was using crazy amounts of benzoyl peroxide to make them go away but it made my skin dry to the point of having thick scaly eczema rashes covering my neck. Awful. I bought this cream and after 3 days of apply generous layers to the rashes all over my neck and face, my skin was replenished back to normal. Life saver.
Excellent mattifier. After i apply my AHA cream, my skin feels a little greasy and wet for some reason because of the extra hydrating ingredients in it, i put this on top and suddenly my skin is perfectly matte!! It makes a wonderful primer and truly helps my foundation stay on, unlike all those junk primers with cones in them.
I got this hand cream as a gift a few years ago and it is the only one to have ever blown me away. It is also the only hand cream to moisturize so incredibly well while leaving absolutely no residue. I get pretty bad eczema patches on my wrists and knuckles during winter and this is the only cream that makes it completely go away within a few days use. I have no desire to ever look for a different cream for my hands.
