If my boyfriend's parents ever by me a present for my birthday or Christmas, it will often be a Biotherm product as his mum swears by them and although I enjoy using them; they are far too expensive to be buying all the time. That is what birthdays and Chirstmas is for! I do like natural products and having quite sensitive skin, it is always best for me to choose better quality products that contain natural ingredients as they are gentler on my delicate skin. This bottle was bought for me recently and it is really good quality. If I had the money to splash out on buying this all the time then I would do it as it soothes my skin and makes my face feel fresh and ready to face the day.
===Price and availability==
This item costs around £40. You are paying more because of the Brand name. They use really pure, natural ingredients that are proven to have skin benefits. You can buy this from Debenhams and other department stores.
==Glamorous from exterior to interior==
The bottle is beautifully sculpted and the plastic pump is easy to dispense. I do enjoy a pump action cream as I find that the pump measures the amount out so you do not accidently get too much and it is the most hygienic way of getting it dispensed. The product which calls itself a concentrate is quite thin, really cool and extremely smooth. It is more like a gel than a cream but it is really light weight. It goes on so smoothly that all you feel is a slight tingle as the cool air dries it quickly. The product dries without being sticky. The skin instantly feels rejuvenated and fresh. It is a really good product for tired skin as it feel like it is injecting life in to it. The concentrate formula contains natural light diffusers that should decrease the appearance of fine lines and dark circles. It also contains pure olive leaf concentrate and pure olive extracts.
Olive leaf extract is a wonderful ingredient as it promotes faster healing and contains anti oxidants. I do get a few spots on my skin and I like to think that the product helps the scars clear up quicker and clears up my breakout. When I used the product I did notice that I was becoming less spotty and they were fading quicker. Olive leaf extract also helps to protect skin form sun damage and it is actually better for you than vitamin E. I like the idea that my skin is benefitting from the wonderful ingredients but I still find the product just a tad overpriced.
The feel of the product is amazing and two pumps is enough to coat the face. I find the best way of putting the product on is to dab the product gently on the skin in a patting motion. This wakes up the skin and it is like you are getting a mini facial. I use this in conjunction to my regular moisturiser.
This is a great product that has a lot to offer. The health benefits speak for themselves and are the real selling point to the product. It is expensive and I wish it was cheaper but when you compare it alongside cheaper concentrates and serums they just cannot compare in quality. I would recommend it but it has a hefty price tag. Saying this, the bottle will last a while and I estimate it lasting 6 months. I used to use a Creme De La Mer serum which again uses natural products and this was £70 so at least I have found a cheaper alternative.
