Biotherm Aquasource Skin Perfection: love in a tub

Every now and then you com across a product that you just fall for. This recently happened to me with a moisturiser from the brand Biothem called Aquasource Skin Perfection.

Biotherm Aquasource Skin Perfection

It’s not often that I would say that I have fallen in love with a moisturiser – an eyeshadow maybe, a mascara, definitely – but rarely a moisturiser. There is something about the texture of this moisturiser that is really unique and unusual – described as a ‘hydrating sorbet’, it is almost matte/velvetty feeling. The cream is light as air and so refreshing – the smell reminds me of after sun. I think the overall fresh feeling this cream delivers is a huge part of it’s appeal.

another attempt to capture the texture – it’s not glossy like most moisturisers

I have tried quite a few ‘aqua’ based moisturisers and generally really like them – they feel very moisturising but also really lovely and light.

Biotherm Aquasource Skin Perfection:
Applied to skin quite thick to see how it applies, absorbs quickly
and leaves skin soft but not shiny or greasy.

This one feels unique for the velvetty texture that I mentioned – when applied this moisturiser manages to leave my skin totally quenched but also matte and not remotely greasy. I have found that since using it for the past couple of weeks my skin feels moisturised and my t-zone doesn’t seem to feel as greasy as the day progresses.

I love this moisturiser and definitely plan to repurchase.

Biotherm Aquasource costs £29.50 from so not a cheapy, but a good moisturiser is really worth forking out for.

    I can’t believe I’ve never tried anything from Biotherm. I’m always tempted by their moisturisers but have not actually purchased any as of yet. From what you’re saying it sounds like it’d be very nice for a dehydrated, combination skin – do you think?

    I love your reviews and your blog, by the way – always so happy when I see a new post 🙂 Keep ’em coming!

    I think it’s perfect for dehydrated combination skin – that’s my skin type and it works really well. My skin has actually felt more balanced, less combination since using this.

    Glad you love the blog – it’s lovely to hear you look forward to the new posts 🙂

    That Moisturiser looks so divine and refreshing. Would you say it’s cooling enough for soothing irritated/sun burnt skin?

    I definitely think so – I’m off on holiday in a few weeks and planning to take this with me so can report back 🙂

    I just got a sample of this from a magazine. Needless to say, I immediately wanted to buy it within days since there was a bonus gift redemption on promotion as well.

    I put it on last night before bed, and in the morning my face looked refreshing! I’ve never been keen on wearing moisturizers in general although I have combination skin… but I am hooked on this new moisturizer now. (I used to wear Kinerase Hydraboost Intensive Treatment mainly for the hyaluronic acid ingredient).

    I have extremely sensitive skin and wanted to ask if this moisturizer has any scent?
