“ Brand: Biotherm / Type: Cleansing Foam / Skin type: for dry skin / What it does: Cleanses / Product line: Biotherm Biosource „
I tried Biotherm products for the first time when they were on a 3 for 2 in Boots, they are quite expensive and so at least this way you get them a little bit cheaper. They very often are on 3 for 2 in Boots I find, and so I always wait to replace products or to try new products then. I have also occasionally bought Biotherm products duty free, again to save some money.
I have tried a few of the Biotherm cleansers, I'm not really loyal to one brand or type of cleanser as my skin seems to change so much. Mainly dry in the winter, mainly oily in the summer, quite sensitive most of the time, combination really I guess. The only stipulation that I have with a cleanser is that is must be wash off, I don't really like the cleansing milks.
I've bought this particular cleanser a few times now, I find that it's a good 'winter' cleanser. It's a foaming rinse off cleanser suitable for dry skin. It's around £15.00 in Boots if I remember correctly, so if you get it on 3 for 2 then it works out at around £10.00.
This is a rich cream which foams on contact with water to cleanse your skin, I find that it removes all traces of day to day makeup as well. If I've had a lot of dark eye make up on, or a waterproof mascara, then I would use a seperate eye make up remover first, as it won't take off these. This leaves my dry winter parched skin feeling really clean and comfortable. Sometimes when I have dry skin I find that cleansers can leave my skin feeling tight and taut after using them, not so with this one. I do always use a serum and a moisturiser after this.
To use this cleanser you just dispense a small amount into the palm of the hand and mix it with water until a rich foam appears. Then you massage it into your wet face and neck with small circular motions, it tells you to avoid the eye area with it but I don't. I always wash the whole of my face and neck including my eyes with this and have never had any problems, it doesn't irritate or sting my eyes at all. You then just rinse the cleanser off thoroughly with warm water.
You don't need to use much of this cleanser, a little goes a long way, I use a pea sized blob and this is adequate.
This is definately one of my favourite cleansers, I've bought it a few times, and I will definately continue to do so.
