REVIEW : BIOTHERM Biosource Clarifying Exfoliating Gel

This is a bit of an overdue excitement, it has only been a day late but the excitement combusted last night was so great, a day seemed like the leap year had come a full cycle in this girlish continuum.

I met an old friend from school (we’re talking about like 10yrs over) and is currently working at Biotherm counter.  She was extremely generous with the samples, I could say if I used them appropriately, I could go on for 1-2 months.  And did I say?  Samples of a complete set.

So I spent literally hours at the counter just catching up and sharing knowledge on facial care and cosmetics, I ended up buying something.  And since I have literally, holy mole, literally, a whole drawer full of unboxed stuff, the only thing that I could think of getting is an exfoliator.  (And even in that regards, I do have a peeling gel.)

But what I bagged home was more than a can full of butterflies.  Upon using it, it just flutters around me, in me, on me, even danced at the mirror for a lil bit.

75ml – RM100.00 from Parkson

Your level of experience with exfoliators may differ from mine, cause my skin is so sensitive i once avoided ‘em like guys without jobs (kidding).  But like a food critic, you don’t have to take 20 dishes of dorian fish to know if it’s good or not.

The micro beads are super fine and gentle.  It’s just unfathomable how the edginess of the scrubs is felt through, yet at the same time whispers charms so ever gently to your face.  Needless to say, the end result of my facial texture was smoother.  My face is hardly clogged so I can’t say much about black/white heads removals.  But dead skin, a definite yes.

When spreaded, if you could see the gentle micro beads.

In summary :

Price : Very Decent. RM100.00 for 75ml.  Hardly you get branded goods going at this price, and it’ll last you forever if you scrub 1- 2 a week.

Functionality : Exfoliates without stripping off moisture.  Dead skin cells are well removed.  Most importantly no bat shit insane expanded pores!! (another bad bad experience, for next time)

Packaging and Texture : Standard facial tube packaging.  When first squeezed out, it seems like gel.  Only once spread and you feel itsy bitsy micro beads.  Mild fragrance.

Overall : Great.  Does what it does, without damage (provided you are equipped with the proper knowledge of using scrubs.  General rule is, gentle gentle gentle.)  May not buy it again this can really last, but will definitely recommend it to others.

Till next time, stay healthy and keep that precious face cleaned!
