Biotherm Homme Hydra-Deto2x Detoxifying Moisturizing Booster
I really don't see myself as old but the reality is that I'm getting older and I don't want to wake up one day realising I got an old and tired looking face. You can better start early by taking care of your skin and this way keeping it looking younger for a little bit younger. Every morning I already use a face wash but it certainly doesn't harm to use something extra. For this reason I bought the Biotherm Homme Hydra-Deto2x Detoxifying Moisturizing Booster.
This product is especially designed for men to help with their skin. Biotherm got a whole product line now for men. This product is a moisturiser that should detox your skin and makes you look younger and fresher looking. It should enhance skin respiration and makes complexion clearer. It also should protect your skin from the daily influences.
I always love how a brand says it protects and enhances your skin because it all sounds very promising but you are never really sure it the product delivers. I can't see it the moisturiser is protecting me but I can see an improvement of my skin. My skin does look healthier and maybe not so much younger but more taken care of. Sometimes I really had my days where the skin looks really rough and tired but I do have to say that it doesn't happen that much anymore. Maybe only after a long night...
The moisturizer comes in a small grey pump bottle and is 50ml. It has a plastic cap on top of the bottle which keeps the pump clean but also makes sure you don't use it per accident when it's for example in your bag. The bottom of the bottle is flat which makes it easier for you to let it stand up on you shelf.
The moisturizer comes as gel and feels really soft and is easy to spread out over your face. You don't really need much for the whole face. The gel absorbs well into the skin and doesn't make your skin feel greasy. The downside of the gel is that it's scented. It's not a strong scent and it's actually quite nice but I like to choose how I smell during the day. I can still use a fragrance which hides the smell of the moisturizer so it's not really a big problem.
I enjoy using this product as it does make my skin look healthier and maybe even younger but definitely more taken care of. My skin doesn't look as tired anymore as I have been up all night and that's a big plus. Believing the brand with this product it should protect my skin and enhances which certainly can never do any harm since we all do get older. This moisturizer doesn't come cheap and cat's around 35 pounds but it's worth it.
The Biotherm detox range is designed to help men's skin detox and purify itself from the stresses that everyday living can take on the skin. Environmental pollution and an unhealthy lifestyle can all lead to premature ageing and generally bad skin and this range will supposedly help to counteract some of that.
I have already reviewed the cleanser in this range which I thought was a good product and this review is for the accompanying moisturiser which is supposed to have an Anti-Dullness Oxygenating effect.
The moisturiser comes in a dark grey pump action 50ml bottle. It is flat on the bottom to allow you to stand it upright in your bathroom shelf or cabinet. It has all the usual markings of the Biotherm range on it and you can definitely tell it's a man's moisturiser due to its simple clean looks.
The moisturiser comes in a gel formula that is supposed to be easier to absorb into skin than a cream and it does absorb well and feels very lightweight but also very moisturising at the same time. I was worried about it leaving my skin feeling sticky due to it being a gel but it didn't and once absorbed it left my skin looking quite matt and feeling soft and refreshed.
Putting it on in the morning is actually really refreshing and it doesn't leave me blotchy or irritate my skin in any way which is always a bonus when you have sensitive skin like mine.
Like nearly all the Biotherm ranges the moisturiser is scented but as I said it doesn't irritate and the smell is lovely and lasts the whole day so would be good for those people who do not like to wear a heavy aftershave.
I originally bought this set due to its claims that it would detox my skin and make it look healthier as being a smoker and just generally living unhealthily has caught up with me lately and my skin was looking a little puffy and sallow.
Using in combination with the cleanser and the eye gel my skin is definitely looking better but as I have also been trying to be healthier I can't really say how much is down to this and how much to the healthier lifestyle.
The colour of my skin along with the puffiness has definitely improved and it is feeling really good at the minute and this is the only one I have been using for the past few weeks so I think it has at least helped in making me look better.
I got this as part of a travellers exclusive airport set so the prices aren't what you would pay on the high street but it generally retails around the £30 mark which is expensive for a 50ml moisturiser. When this bottle is finished I will be going back to my regular one again and not buying another one of this just due to the fact I prefer my usual one but if in the future my skin starts looking a little under the weather again and in need of a pick me up then I will definitely use it again.
