When we were in London I ran out of day and night cream so I desperately needed new ones. At the same time I had another problem: as we were supposed to go directly to Riga from London, we had only a limited amount of kilos that we could take with us. In the end, we managed to have exactly the amount we were allowed to, haha! I was really proud. But anyways, turning back to my skincare problem: as I knew that we didn’t have much space, I was looking for a ‘all-in-one’ set that wouldn’t weight too much but contain all the necessary products. When I saw this Biotherm set I decided to take it right away!

  • Biotherm Aquasource Nuit High Density Hydrating Jelly (15ml)
  • Biotherm Aquasource Gel Cream for Normal to Combination Skin (15ml)

Aquasource Deep Serum is a full-size, the other 2 are miniatures. I must say I like their packaging a lot and they all came in carton boxes.

My opinion:

First of all I like the packaging. It’s made of solid semi-transparent glass. It has a pump system, very handy!

It has a very liquid texture, something in between a gel and a cream. I like the color, too: it is transparent with glossy pearl particles.

Biotherm Aquasource Nuit High Density Hydrating Jelly

Description:

Your skin loses more water at night than during the day. Biotherm Aquasource Nuit High Density Hydrating Jelly helps to replenish skin with moisture and hydration all night long. Wake up to fresh looking, luminous skin which feels more elastic and radiant, as if reawakened.

Beauty from the Deep:
Biotherm introduces P.Antarctica, a microorganism able to survive the extreme conditions of the Antarctic due to its incredible capacity to retain water. Enriched with P.Antarctica, Biotherm Aquasource Nuit High Density Hydrating Jelly helps the skin maintain its natural water reserves all night long.

Directions:
Apply Biotherm Aquasource Nuit High Density Hydrating Jelly at night, after removing your make-up, for all types of skin. Follow with the Biotherm serum of your choice.

My Opinion:

I like the packaging of the miniature, too: it is made of plastic (thus lightweight) and I like the thin nose opening.

The packaging of the full-sized Night Jelly looks exactly the same way as the Deep Serum:

biotherm aquasource nuit

This is a typical gel: very light, this is probably one of the lightest products I’ve ever tried. It has a very light blue color.

Biotherm Aquasource Gel Cream for Normal to Combination Skin

Description:

Paraben free and mineral oil free. Biotherm Aquasource 24 Hour Deep Hydration Replenishing Gel has a fresh and creamy touch that melts on the skin to help awaken the senses every day.

Directions:
Apply Biotherm Aquasource 24 Hour Deep Hydration Replenishing Gel to the face morning and/or evening.

My Opinion:

Normally I prefer creams with a fuller texture but this one is very pleasant.

The packaging is a miniature version of the fuller one, it looks exactly like it but smaller:

Overall Opinion:

All of the Biotherm Aquasource products that I tested get absorbed pretty quickly. I can’t really say any of them is a super-must-have, no but what I can say is that they are products of good quality. They do their jobs well, don’t irritate my skin or clog my pores. My face looks better now that it did a couple of weeks ago even though the hydration that this trio gives isn’t enough for my skin. It was great when I used it in London but in the cold Riga my skin needs deeper hydration, protection and nourishment. If you live in a mild to hot climate, if you are young and your skin is normal to combination, these products will do a great job for you!

Overall Note: A.

Where to buy:

I checked – these sets are no more available online but you can buy these products one buy one: Deep Serum, Night Jelly, Gel Cream.
