Recently, I was contacted by Spread to review a couple of products from Biotherm! Even though I’m not primarily a skincare or beauty blogger, I’m always open to trying new products because I end up finding new favourites. The two products sent to me were: Aquasource Hydrating Jelly and Aquasource Hydration BB Cream.
Aquasource Hydrating Jelly
Background / Initial Thoughts
Like a lot of other Biotherm products, the hydrating jelly could be used for all skin types. As a reference, I have normal-dry skin. The first thought I had was that it would be really cold and hydrating once I put it on my face. The first time I used it, I definitely put too much product on the palm of my hands. Since it feels like a balm when applying it onto the skin, it ended up feeling like I put a bunch of Vaseline all over my face.
After that lesson was learned, I figured out that a couple of pumps does the trick! When I woke up the next morning, I didn’t notice many changes but from one use, it already made my face feeling fresh and soft the next morning.
After Two Weeks
As you can tell by the before photo, I don’t have that many skin problems. The biggest issue I face would be the pores and blackheads on my nose. By the end of Week 1, I was able to notice a huge improvement in the size of my pores.
Like I mentioned earlier, the texture of the product is a gel that turns into a balm once you apply it to the face. The ingredients that make up this product add a light fragrance (but thankfully it smells like fresh air).
OVERALL RATING (out of 5)
I would 100% recommend this. After two weeks of consistent use, it has made a huge improvement in my skin and makes it feel hydrated when I wake up the next morning. I’m really excited to see how my skin looks after a month of using this! It honestly makes me wake up with a fresh face that I don’t even feel the need to put on any sort of face makeup.
Aquasource Hydrating BB Cream (Fair to Medium)
The thing I love about BB Cream is that it feels like you’re not wearing anything and as a person who’s not into full coverage, this kind of product is perfect for me. I didn’t really have high expectations or anything but after looking at the before and after photos, I realized how much I really do love the results.
The major difference is how much the BB cream evened out my skin tone. I actually have a birth mark in the middle of my forehead and although it’s barely noticeable now, I definitely noticed an improvement after using the BB cream. As you can tell by the photos, I just use a Real Techniques brush to blend it in.
OVERALL RATING (out of 5)
100% would recommend – it leaves my skin looking even and luminous. The past couple of weeks I’ve been wearing it has made me look more awake at work (which is my favourite haha).
Hope you enjoyed my first beauty/skincare post! Again, special thanks to Spread for sending me these products to try out 🙂
