Our skins needs special care in winters with products formulated specially for dry skin, caused by harsh wind. This winter season I thought of trying Biotique winter care range. What I liked most about this range is the ingredients which are really good for skin and these products are paraben free.
I would like to tell my lovely readers that before I started trying this range, my skin was suffering badly due to Melbourne’s harsh weather and it used to look patchy after applying any foundation. Also it looked very dull and lifeless. When I came back to India my mom asked me that what happened to your skin, is it sun burn? I said. “No, its just my skin and may be little stress or hormonal changes but nothing is working for my skin”.
Now I seriously needed some products to look after my skin as it was getting worse day by day. Then my sister asked me to try these Biotique products. O man, these worked wonders for my skin and my mom complimented me that your skin looks much better and bright now, only after religiously using these for one week.
1. Bio Honey Gel – Refreshing Foaming Face Wash
Price – Rs. 119 for 100ml
As the name says this is a gel based face wash. I prefer to stay away from foaming and cream cleansers as my skin is super oily. Though Cetaphil cleanser
has always been my first choice for face wash still I thought of giving it a try as I was into complete range and Biotique never fails me.
I am using this face wash since last 1 month and I have found it quite satisfactory. The contents are very good and it is paraben free. Best part is that it suits my oily skin. I have not faced any breakout, acne or allergy since I have started using it. Plus it is very inexpensive. A full thumbs up from me.
Contains – Banhaldi Rhizome, Arjun Bark, Neem Bark, Ritha Fruit Pulp, Ananas Fruit, Madhu, Purified Water
2. Biotique Bio Coconut Whitening and Brightening Cream
Price – Rs. 199/- for 50gm
Bio Coconut, the phrase sounds good na!! This cream from Biotique is a normal day cream which claims to be whitening and brightening. Though I don’t support the whitening claim and won’t discuss it further, I would say that it is a good cream and over the time, it surely brightens skin. The texture is fine, neither drying nor oily. It leaves skin smooth and supple. The cream causes no breakouts or acne or irritation.
Contains – Nariyal Oil, Dudhal Root, Dugdh Powder, Manjistha Root, Nimbu Leaf, Badam oil, Cream base.
3. Biotique Bio Dandelion Ageless Lightening Serum
Price – Rs. 230/- for 40ml
Biotique Bio Dandelion Ageless Lightening Serum is a lightweight serum which suits all skin types. It is non greasy and doen’t cause any allergy or irritation on skin. I have been using it for almost a month now and I can say that it brings a positive change in skin. My skin is now more even and looks cleaner.

4. Biotique Bio Wheat Germ Youthful Nourishing Night Cream
Price – Rs. 230/- for 50gm
Biotique Bio Wheatgerm Youthful Nourishing Night Cream is a good cream to be used over serum in the night. Wheatgerm being the main ingredient, wheatgerm helps in making skin healthy and soothes & repairs skin. This cream is meant for Normal to Dry skin. But since winters are here, I have used this cream too and haven’t faced any breakouts. Though I won’t be able to use it in summers or humid weather. But then, I don’t use anything except aloe vera in that weather. It is a good budget night cream overall.
Contains – Ankurit Genhun Seed, Gajar Seed, Badam oil, Kulanjan Rhizome, Khubani Seed Oil, Sunflower Oil, Purified Water.
