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.
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.

Biotherm Aquasource Skin Perfection:
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.
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 boots.com so not a cheapy, but a good moisturiser is really worth forking out for.
