What I love about Biotherm is that they seem to find the most amazing ingredients from remote natural resources and this time they’ve discovered the power of Chlorella Extract. This potent green algae is called “the breathing algae” because it is capable of purifying the environment with extreme efficacy. It also increases cellular defence by 142%, boosts cell respiration and filters impurities to minimize pores and imperfections.
The products are up to 99% natural and formulated for water lovers. They are also simple to use because there is a comprehensive 4 step system to help you cleanse, perfect, repair and hydrate for optimal results.
The Skin Oxygen Depolluting Cleanser ($26.00) starts as a rich gel that melts into the skin and transforms into a bubbly lather. The mild botanical scent reminds me of a spa and the lush formula effectively removes dirt, oil, makeup and sweat to clear pores, detoxify and counteract dullness.
Step 2 is the Oxygenating Lotion ($26.00) which works like a toner without stickiness, dryness or heavy astringents. It minimizes the appearance of large pores, absorbs grease and corrects imperfections caused by pollutants so skin looks smooth, healthy and radiant. It also helps prep my face for moisturizer and makeup by refreshing and purifying. When used daily, the solution seems to reduce the occurrence of breakouts and diminish the appearance of blemishes without any stinging.
Enriched with regenerating antioxidants, the Skin Oxygen Strengthening Concentrate ($61.00) repairs environmental damage, replenishes and deeply moisturizes with no residue. The refreshing gel instantly cools and quenches parched skin with a smooth, supple finish. I usually apply it before moisturizer and at night after cleansing as a protective layer. It helps keep my skin clear, even and resilient.
It was incredibly hot, sticky and humid in Singapore with lots of sunshine and absolutely no breeze. The Skin Oxygen Cooling Gel ($60.00) felt like a breath of fresh air on my stressed skin and I love the lightweight, fast absorbing formula. The gel helps reinforce your natural moisture barrier to keep skin soft and hydrated while reducing sebum and deflecting the adherence of pollution particles. Like all of the other products, it smells fantastic and helps alleviate irritation.
In city smog and summer humidity, this collection is a great defense system to keep your skin clear, bright and healthy! Biotherm is available at Shoppers Drug Mart, The Bay, Rexall, Sephora and online at biotherm.ca
