Hot on the heels of Lancome Genifique youth activating serum comes Biotherm’s Skin Vivo range of reversive anti-aging skincare. I realised that its been a while since Biotherm came up with something new – their current product range has been around for a while.
Anyway onto Biotherm Skin Vivo – a new skincare range from Biotherm that promises to take 10 years off you. Woot! Make me young again! If it works, I shall bath in it! 😛 After all, my birthday’s coming up and that means turning a whole year older…
The technology is rather similar to that of Lancome Genifique in my mind, both activating DNA so your skin looks and acts youthful. Being sibling companies I’m not quite surprised. The difference lies in the ingredients used and the fact that Lancome’s is just a serum while Biotherm has incorporated their technology into a whole skincare range that includes a lotion (toner), cream, serum and eye cream.
The key ingredients in Biotherm Skin Vivo are Pure Thermal Plankton which has the ability to stimulate the MnSOD gene, an enzyme key to cell communication; and Reverserol SV extracted from the leaves of the candle bush plant. So working hand in hand, they repair damaged DNA and prevent further damage plus boost cellular activity. Wooh! Enough of the scientific speak! 🙂
The symbol of Skin Vivo is the egg symbolizing Rebirth and true to the theme, the products bear a light baby powder scent. Quite unusual in skincare products from my experience – usually skincare products tend towards the floral. The packaging of the products also takes its inspiration from the egg, bearing a circular shape. The Fundamental Cream in particular is super cute!
Anyway, I’ve been taking the Biotherm Skin Vivo Reversive Anti-Aging Lotion and Fundamental Cream for a spin and I’ll report back properly in a couple of weeks. Preliminary reports indicate that they both feel very nice on my skin – making my skin feel soft, velvety and smooth but my skin likes one better than the other.
But will it take 10 years off? The jury’s still out for now 🙂
The Biotherm Skin Vivo range consists of Anti-Age Reversive Lotion (RM140), Anti-Age Reversive Serum Tensor (RM270), Anti-Age Fundamental Day Cream (RM240 for soft gel or rich cream) and the Anti-Age Reversive Eye Area Gel (RM170). Available at Biotherm counters end August 2009.

That’s egg is very cute! Something I would mind as a deco piece ^^ But it’s a big pricey for a range that only has basic items. But then again, reflecting back on Genifique’s price tag it seems to be in line. Can’t wait for your review. Would like to see if it’s the extra cost cuts down on the time it takes these type of products to work.
Haha I was thinking the same when I saw them “I want one for my home!”
I really wonder about these claims considering dermatologists here saying taking off 5 years is realistic. But this one still can’t beat Lancome’s taking off 15 years! *roll eyes*
You’re right. I don’t usually buy it but I must say this Biotherm one does feel nice which is what is most important to me!

I can’t wait for your review 🙂 I’ve got a little sample of the Lancome Genifique I really enjoyed, just when I’m tossing if I should purchase a full size I saw your new post 🙂 I’ll hold it off until your Biotherm Review
Can’t wait, jumping with joy and clapping hehe 🙂
Haha… What a coincidence 😀 I’ll let you know how it goes in a few weeks 🙂
Just got a tester of the moisturiser and the serum. I think the claims are pretty strong about reducing the age of the skin by 10 years – I think there are a lot of other factors that impact on the age of your skin that a cream can’t hope to rectify, but hey, I am forever hopeful!
I was so fortunate that one of your sales representative provided me with BIOTHERM SKIN VIVO samples I think I am gonna use it .
Is it possible to provide me with the price for your products thanks.
I’m afraid this is just a blog about beauty. You’d have to check the prices at the Biotherm counter. Thanks for coming by.
I’ve just started using this and hope it will take at least 5 years off from me, if not 10 years… *finger cross*
I have tried the new Biotherm skin vivo product it was a sample and I’m HOOKED!! This is the best product ever. My face is so soft all day. I highly recommend this product.
