Now, another review of skincare product I’m currently using. I’ve been eying for this since its launch in Australia in 2011, priced at AUD85 if not mistaken, not sure of the price in Malaysia. Only now I get the chance to try it out. Sis got it for me from UK because of some sort of promotion. I some how couldn’t find it at Biotherm counter in tHe Spring today. Tried looking for it from Boots, UK as well. There’s no such item. Still selling in Canada’s Biotherm website though. Hmm…
To fight the most visible signs of fatigue, give your skin a new energy source – a powerful boost of moisture and radiance. Biotherm anti-fatigue revolution: Last-minute cosmetic activation to protect its natural quality and high efficacy. Biotherm creates SKIN.ERGETIC, its first signs of fatigue repairing concentrate, to reduce visible signs of fatigue and fight against their appearance, all day long. The demands of a modern life can lead to an unbalanced lifestyle; stress, unbalanced diet, smoking, polltuion, etc. The skin is also under attack from these aggressors, exhausting its moisture and vitality reserves and accumulating impurities on the surface. The skin’s natural defenses become weakened and signs of fatigue begin to set in; drawn features, dullness, more visible pores, less refined skin texture and dryness. To fight visible signs of fatigue, give your skin a new energy source: visibly boost the skin with a energy.
The one box comes with two items, a bottle and a sachet of powder that contains the “fresh ingredients” sealed in a bottle cover. You need to screw on the bottle and tap it to release the magic ingredients. The mixture will only stay fresh and effective for three months. The picture on the right shows how the bottle cover looks like after you release the ingredients into the bottle. You cannot use it immediately after that, need one day for it to activate. Then, have to shake for the first three times you’re using.
I didn’t expect too much from it, just using it because I’ve run out of daily moisturizer and it’s a gift. Not quite willing to spend that much for moisturizer :p Afraid that it doesn’t suit me and will go to waste.
I’m using it day and night as my primary moisturizer. Using it on its own. Absorb easily, non-greasy, very light weight. Enough for me to use it alone without any need of other product. Managed to cut down a lot of time for my daily skincare regime. During the day, I topped it with sunscreen. At night, will just use it on its own. Could feel that my skin condition improved, brighter and more supple. Didn’t break me out. It’s suitable for me but I’m not sure about other people. I’m currently into one month plus of using it. Love it! Already half the bottle.
The ingredients might not be suitable for some people, here’s the list. Decide for yourself.
Water, Glycerin, Olea Europaea Oil, Alcohol, Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Sucrose Stearate, Tocopherol, Sclerotium Gum, Caprylyl Glycol, Stearic Acid, Xanthan Gum, Palmitic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Vaccinium Myrtillus Extract, Sodium Hydroxide, Caffeine, p-Anisic Acid, Saccharum Officinarum Extract, Vitreoscilla Ferment, Limonene, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis Extract., Citrus Medica Limonum Peel Extract, Geraniol, Acer Saccharum Extract, Malus Domestica Fruit Cell Culture, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Citral, Fragrance, Sodium Benzoate
Only down side, I don’t quite like the smell, rather strong and sourish.
