I have a wonderful friend who is a product addict. She is frequently trying to turn me away from Champneys and on to other brands such as Biotherm. My usual budget doesn't really stretch to buying Biotherm and other such luxury products frequently so she sometimes gives me some small amounts of these products so I can try them out and decide if they are worth the money. She recently gave me a whole little bag of different items, some expensive, some not so, and I in turn gave her some left over amounts of Champneys products to let her try just how wonderful they are.
The bottle that I was given was a 50ml bottle and probably had about 10ml or so left, maybe slightly more. This comes in quite a pretty tube and it stands on its end so the product is all down the bottom waiting to be used.
This is very simple to use. I wash my face and then I apply this. rub it around my face and the thick cream goes on quickly and feels lovely. I then leave this while I have a quick soak in the bath, probably for around 20 minutes. Once this has been left it will tighten up slightly, but not in an uncomfortable way, this allows for the mask to be pulled off easily. I have found that the mask can actually be removed in all one go which is quite a novelty!
My face definitely felt amazing after using this mask. My skin did not feel tight but did feel like it had been cleaned of impurities and dirt. My skin was a little pink for a good couple of hours after each time that I used this but that soon went down and I was left with skin that just looked glowing and very healthy. I did not suffer any skin flare ups or rashes after using this which is always good with skin as sensitive as mine.
I did have some dry skin across my nose and part of my forehead which was cleared up after I used this 2 or 3 times. This may have been because I use a combination of different products to protect my skin but I did feel that this face mask contributed to how lovely my skin looked afterwards. This lovely feeling lasted for several days which is always a plus point too! But then it should do considering that a 50ml tube of this currently retails at around £27.00 from House of Fraser. They do appear to have a fairly regular stream of special offers including 1/3 off and buy 3 for the price of 2.
A little goes a long way with this mask and I managed to use it 4 times with the small amount that I had in the tube I was given by my friend. I was quite light with spreading this over my face and it was a thin coating all over each time. This was ample to make my skin feel wonderful and I was very pleased with the results of this. I loved the effect of pulling the mask off afterwards even if it did feel a little bit strange.
Biotherm White Detox C+ Extra Peel-Off Mask Melanin Off is quite an expensive face mask at £20+ but in my opinion well worth the price tag, I do tend to find with make up and beauty products you get what you pay for, for that reason I don't mind paying a bit more especially when the product is for your face because lets face it is always on display!
The cream is an off white colour and comes in a slightly sticky consistency which is very easy to apply evenly to your face, after about 5 maybe 7 minutes you can feel the cream setting into a mask on your face it is a pleasant almost cooling feeling. You are supposed to wash off after about 10-15 minutes which i have done and that gives good results, however i do tend to leave it on a bit longer (30 minutes) and i get a very nice result.
I do tend to suffer with dry patches of skin on my face which I do find disappears after using this mask, and i find that my face feels so soft after using this product i don't even have mosturise for a few days afterwards. My skin always feels very refreshed and clean after using this product.
The mask doesn't have a strong or specific odour just a lovely subtle fresh smell.
This can be a difficult product to track down and it will set you back £26 however it is an excellent product and well worth tracking doen as the results are gereat when I use this mask. One of the great things about it is that it does last a long time as you do not need to use a lot with each application, it has a slightly sticky composition to it which means it sits on your face easily when you apply it and so it is easy to get a good coveridge with just a little of the white cream.
It has a fresh and subtle odour to it, a very clean sort of smell and one that does not linger after it has been removed. Before using I wash my face with warm water and make sure all my make up has been removed, after applying it evenly I leave it to sit for about 15 minutes while it slowly dries on your face and starts to go rubbery and more solid.
It peels off really smoothly and is very comfortable and easy to do and it retains its shape when you have took it all off., To finish the job I wash my face to make sure everything is removed. My skin has a lovely healthy glow to it after using this product. My skin feels cool and irritation free and there is a nice healthy glow to it as well. It is also soft to the touch and very smooth with any dead skin having been removed.
This is a product I would certainly recommend as the results are excellent on my skin which can be a little sensitive at times and I have had no problems with this.
This is the very last Biotherm review I have to write so I thought Id try and get it done today because I have been saving the best product till last. I recently found a gift set of Biotherm products that I had totally forgotten I even owned and Ive been steadily working my way through them but up until I tried this one they had been a little hit and miss - some well worth the price tag and others not so much but this "Biotherm White Detox C+ Extra Peel-Off Mask Melanin Off" is one of the few I will be going back to buy again after my 150ml tube runs out - the price may be very steep but in this case I reckon it is totally worth it. I thought I had found the perfect face mask for me (the No7 one) but after using this one I think my opinions have changed!!
Price: A 150ml tube - £20
Stockists: Amazon, Debenhams, House Of Fraser & Boots.
For: This mask is basically designed to give your face a full detox and get rid of anything bad - dry skin and even prevent spots that are lurking under the skin for coming up.
The packaging for this mask is exactly like is shown in the picture as it comes in a light blue and quite big squeezy tube. I like that it comes in a tube like that because not only does it make it more hygienic but it prevents you having to waste any as you only squeeze out exactly what you need and because the mask itself is quite thick and creamy (which by the way I was not expecting!) it spreads quite evenly and goes a really long way on your face. The only slight issue I have with the tube is that the lid is screw off which is fine when your applying it but when you've got it all over your hands after application it can be a bit messy to put back on - even when you have washed your hands!
The mask itself really surprised me with its consistency and texture as all the peel off masks Ive tried in the past have been like proper liquid and very sticky to apply but this one is totally different. Its white in colour and REALLY creamy like a normal face mask - that you would just wash off and it is very easy to apply evenly and feels amazing as soon as you put it on your face. I was very surprised at the texture as I think a lot of people who try this will be but it does feel instantly luxurious - slightly sticky so application is a bit messy but I was expecting it to be much worse and much harder to apply. In an ordinary face mask review I would normally mention the smell but I don't think this particular one has much of a scent. It does smell incredibly clean and fresh with no chemical odour but the smell isn't that amazing - it makes up for it on results though so I don't mind about that too much as even with scented masks the smell disappears quite quickly.
It is recommended that you apply this evenly all over your face and then leave for 10-15 minutes but Ive left it on for way longer than that - up to an hour and Ive never had any problem with it - in my opinion the longer its left on the better the results so leave it on for as long as you want. Or as long as you can stand it when it starts to set which is after about 15 minutes. Also as this is quite an intensive face mask I recommend only using it about once a week because the results are so great you don't really need to use it any more than that and that way the tube will last you much longer.
Peeling this off is so much fun! How sad am I LOL? Unlike most peel off masks this comes off in one go rather than leaving little bits all over your face and don't worry it doesn't hurt at all and it wont peel of your eyebrows or anything like that should you get some of it on them accidentally - it never has with me anyway. It does look really weird when its off your face because you can see all the bit of skin that the mask has removed and actually see where your pores have kind of made a shape in the mask - not pretty at all but it does work - it looks like a plastic bag in the shape of your face!
The results though are really amazing and after using this I often don't need to apply extra moisturiser because my face already feels proper soft and dead smooth. There's no doubt about it that this face mask makes your face look and feel amazing and those effects last for at least a few days after Ive used it and the difference is proper noticeable. I don't suffer with dry skin or spots on my face very often but since Ive started using this mask I haven't at all which is brilliant because before I was getting a little patch of dry skin on my nose that I couldn't shift and this mask has totally got rid of that and Ive only used it a couple of times. My skin always looks proper glowing and healthy after Ive used this - and not in the bright red lobster way! And I can feel the difference straight away as my skin is definitely smoother, softer and more moisturised - and no spots or dry skin in sight. My mom has even started stealing this off me since she saw how great it worked on me and now she's going on about it, singing its praises as much as I am so 2 opinions are better than one!
I fully recommend this to everyone as even though the price is a little high the results are the best of any face mask Ive tried so in this case you are paying for quality and who can put a price on amazing feeling and looking skin? I definitely recommend and Ill be going back to buy another tube when mine runs out!

When I brought my mum some Biotherm bits for Xmas I was given a gift set with 5 sample sized products in a cute little make up bag. Most of the samples have been ok but this White Detox Peel-Off Mask is BRILLIANT and I am definitely going to be buying the full sized version when this small 40ml tube has run out.
It's a white creamy mask which is lovely to smooth onto my face, the cream is a bit sticky in texture and has got a lovely clean smell. I think the smell is a bit like Johnsons baby products only more grown up, it's dead fresh but comforting as well and the sort of beauty product you could use in the summer as well as the winter.
It's quite a thick cream to apply and then you need to leave it on for at least 10 - 15 minutes. This isn't a problem because the mask feels gorgeous on my skin and I've actually been leaving in on for the whole of my bath which is usually well over an hour! The mask doesn't feel uncomfortable as it dries and the only reason I remember I've still got it on is because when it goes all rubbery and ready to peel off it gets on my nerves a bit where the mask is touching the top of my nose. All masks are like that with me though on that exact spot on my nose so I can't blame this one.
It's very easy to peel off and doesn't tug on my skin, you can actually get it off all in one go so that when you lay it down on a piece of paper it looks like a bit of a death mask!
After peeling the mask off my skin it was a bit red so I splashed a bit of cold water on it and went downstairs. Within 10 mins my mum asked what I'd used on my face because she said it looked really healthy, I bombed upstairs and can honestly say this mask is a bit of a miracle. My skin was actually glowing with health and looked fresh and pink, the redness disappeared after a few minutes and there was no itching or burning or anything like that.
This mask works by stripping off dead skin cells and I think it does this brill, and the end result is that my skin LOOKS like all the dead skin has gone. It feels lovely and smooth and I am AMAZED actually because this mask feels so kind and gentle to use that I can't believe it has done such a brilliant job.
You don't have to use all that much so even though this mask is very expensive at about £20.00 for a 150ml tube I reckon it will last for ages. The 40ml one I've got has given me at least 10 face masks by now and I'd say I'll get another 5 out of it. It just spreads so nice and easy so you're not having to put shedloads on and end up wasting loads of it.
Recommended..... pricey but bloody brilliant!!!
