Biotherm White D-Tox, Biosource, and Aquasource Skin Care Reviews + GIVEAWAY



Friday, January 31st marks the day of the 2014 Chinese New Year, and celebrations are well underway in Asia! Many Asian Americans do participate in the festivities with family gatherings and the symbolic red envelopes, but today, I turn the spotlight on skin care with Biotherm!
Biotherm is a French luxury skin care brand that incorporates active aquatic ingredients to create advanced skin care solutions. It is very popular in France, Canada, and of course, China. I had seen some of my favorite Asian Instagrammers posting photos and reviews of their Biotherm goodies last year, so I was very excited to try these products.


I will share with you 8 iconic Biotherm products, since 8 is the lucky number of the Chinese. Let's begin with the newest whitening products! White D-Tox is a gentle brightening line of skin care that fights against skin pigmentation at every step.
  • The White D-Tox Clarifying Lotion ($33 USD) is a toner with a fresh, lively fragrance that will contribute to a more even-toned complexion. Skin instantly looks more radiant and feels hydrated without looking oily or greasy. I apply this to the face and neck with a cotton pad after washing my face and follow with the White D-Tox serum.
  • The White D-Tox Liquid Light ($80 USD) is a 'triple illuminating' essence. This silky serum will help to create a more translucent complexion while hydrating the skin. It has a sweet floral scent that fades quickly, and it has a milky pink tint that instantly brightens. As recommended, play "piano" on your cheeks and pinch and pat the skin until it is fully absorbed, about 2 minutes. 
  • The Biosource Total and Instant Cleansing Micellar Water ($22 USD) does not irritate my skin or cause acne flare-ups. I am very particular with the cleansing waters I use, but this Biosource version removes makeup easily but gently. I use two damp cotton pads to remove a full face of makeup, though I still reserve my waterproof mascara for heavy duty cleansing oil. When my skin is particularly sensitive or dry, I will wash my face with cleansing water instead of a traditional face wash or cleansing foam. 
  • The Biosource Exfoliating Gel ($22 USD) is a cleanser ideal for everyday use on combination skin. It has a lightweight texture without leaning watery, and the mild exfoliating beads should not irritate even the most sensitive skin. It has a very refreshing scent!
  • The Cleansing Shower Milk ($27 USD) is a soap-free milky formula that is ideal for very dry skin since it is enriched with ultra-nourishing agents. I love the citrus essences of this body cleanser, and the formula's moisturizing agents effectively cleanse while pampering my dry skin.
  • The Aquasource Deep Hydration Replenishing Gel for Normal or Combination Skin ($39 USD) is my favorite Biotherm product. I am so glad to have discovered this because as much as I prefer fresh, cool gels to thicker creams, it has been difficult to find a gel that sufficiently hydrates. This mint-tinted, oil-free moisturizer has a dense, plush gel texture, so it is ideal for night time use. After all these years working in beauty, the Aquasource Replenishing Gel is most likely the best mid-range moisturizer for normal to combination skin that I have encountered thus far, and I look forward to using this all year round. It non-sticky and also does not contain any shimmer particles, which I absolutely love.
  • The Aquasource Emergency Hydration Mask ($28 USD) is excellent for immediate relief of dry patches. I also love to use it on my hands, which are prone to extreme dryness. The creamy gel mask goes to work as soon as I massage it in. I leave it on for ten minutes and wipe off the excess with a damp cotton pad without rinsing for plump, supple skin.
  • The Aquasource Biosensitive Eye Cream ($33 USD) was specifically developed to relieve redness, tightness, and tingling sensations while instantly smoothing eye features and reducing puffiness. I save my rich eye creams for my night-time routine and reach for this lighter, fluid eye cream for day use and under my makeup. 

I was pleasantly surprised with my first Biotherm experience, and I highly recommend the Aquasource Deep Hydration Replenishing Gel as well as the Biosource Cleansing Water. To celebrate the 2014 Chinese New Year, BIOTHERM is offering you a discount of $20 OFF any purchase over $80 with the promo code HORSE. This code will be active until February 3rd!

  7. I am most interested in the hydrating gel! I actually already own the old formulation of the serum and use it every night, although I bought it for my post-acne hyperpigmentation without realizing that it doesn't actually do anything for it! It doesn't seem to be doing any harm, at any rate...

  40. I used Biotherm in high school and loved their aquasource moisturizer. It was recommended to me by Cathay flight attendants – with the amount of travelling they to, as well as the poor and dry air circulation on flights…I am sold when they told me it’s their HG product. :) I kinda forgot about how much I liked biotherm, and am really excited to try the serum!

  44. I love Aquasource gel cream! It was really really really popular in Korea a few years ago and I bet it still is (I just don't know because I don't live there anymore). This one, Clinique Moisture Surge and one other Korean brand gel cream were fighting for the #1 spot. I liked keeping it in my refrigerator during the summer because it felt so nice and cool during the hot and humid nights.
