First off, call me a sceptic but I find it hard to buy into the whole DNA-gene thing sorry Biotherm and Lancome! So, what I will tell you is how the new Biotherm Skin Vivo skin care range feels on my skin. I treat it as I do anti-aging skin care so I will tell you if it plumps up my skin and make it look better but I can’t tell you what happens on a cellular level – I’m not Supergirl with X-ray eyes 🙂
Biotherm Skin Vivo Reversive Anti-aging Lotion – RM140/50ml
Although conventionally used as a toner, this is not quite a toner but a lotion. The texture is thin and watery like a toner and there is a pleasent smell of baby powder. I like the frosted glass bottle it comes in – it looks like a bottle of premier water or wine!
I wipe it on my face after cleansing and it leaves my skin feeling soft. However, if I let it dry, my skin then feels a little dry which leads me to believe its the alcohol at work.
I feel the alcohol content in this toner is quite high so although it leaves my skin feeling soft, I can smell the sharp alcohol smell under the powdery baby scent and that does not endear it to me much. The Fundamental Cream however is lovely!
Pros: Nice packaging, skin feels soft
Cons: High alcohol content
