Biotherm Eau Vitaminee Limited Edition Mist
Advantages: Light Fragrance, Moisturising & Refreshing.
Disadvantages: Expensive & Smells Like Air Freshener (slightly)!
I recently acquired three quarters of a bottle of Biotherm's Eau Vitaminee Refreshing Fragrance Mist (I say acquired as my friend works in a beauty salon and gets to bring home old products or tester products that are no longer needed... bargain)! This is a product that her salon have been stocking for quite a while now, they're big fans of the Biotherm brand, but this one hasn't been selling that well recently so they've decided to remove it from their order with the brand. Biotherm is actually owned by the umbrella company L'Oreal which is a massive name in the beauty and hair care world. However the Biotherm sub brand is a little more exclusive in terms of both cost and philosophy; it's been around since 1952 and advertises itself as being inspired by the power of the earth's living waters. Apparently, by focusing on these living waters they can produce products that work in affinity with your skin. The waters contain lots of microorganisms, plankton and algae which are said to be very influential in the world of beauty and skin care (although I must admit I don't like the idea of rubbing pond water extracts over my face and body really)!
The product comes in a clear box which is looks quite modern and some silver writing naming both the brand and product itself. Inside the box is a clear glass bottle, which is tinted a yellow colour by the liquid contents within it. The bottle has the same white flowery pattern on it, associated with the brand, and is topped by a silver lid. Personally I think that the packaging looks a little old fashioned, granted it is an expensive brand yet the packaging does not overly reflect this in my opinion. The Eau Vitaminee Refreshing Fragrance Mist is exactly what the name states (in an overly complex sounding way, as is common with these "exclusive" brands), it's basically a body spray that aims to refresh your skin and contains vitamins (simple really)! The liquid is dispensed using a typical silver dispenser which requires you to push down to release a spritz of the spray. The scent is very citrusy, with strong hints of both grapefruit and orange in my opinion. It's a very pleasant smell, but one that I would associate more with a linen or room spray rather than a body spray. It's a very fresh and lively scent that is quite subtle in that it's not overpowering.
The spray settles easily on my skin and I tend to rub it in very gently, it's absorbed into my skin almost immediately to leave it feeling very soft and smooth with a very slight oily glaze to it. It is advertised as containing vitamin E which helps explain the hydrated and softened feeling of my skin after application. The scent lingers on my skin for a couple of hours and the soft feeling remains for longer than this which is nice. Despite the fairly pleasant smell and the condition it leaves my skin in, I probably won't be replacing my bottle of Biotherm's Eau Vitaminee Refreshing Fragrance Mist when it runs out. Personally I prefer to use a body moisturiser and either body spray or perfume during the day, rather than this fragrance mist. Plus there's the rather hefty price tag that's attached to it (forgetting the fact it leaves me smelling slightly like a bowl of pot pourri)! It currently retails at £24.51 for a 100ml bottle at Boots and can be found for slightly less on various websites. There are far cheaper and nicer smelling products out there that I'll be replacing this with, however if it was ever offered to me again, who am I turn down a freebie?!
Thanks for reading.
Summary: A body mist spray to moisturise and refresh the skin.
