Product Review: Biotherm’s Christmas Gift Packs

Each year, I buy my mum a new skin care gift pack, ever since I was a sales assistant at David Jones (back when I was at Uni) and spent as much of my time as possible sneaking off into the beauty section and emerging smelling of at least ten different perfumes and several layers of different coloured gloss.

I have settled this year on Biotherm’s delightful Christmas gift pack which I have had the pleasure of trialing early (an early Merry Christmas to me!). This year, Biotherm has released super cute limited Charity editions of their products redesigned by the talented Swedish illustrator Ingela Peterson Arrhenius.

The gift pack designs feature a series of quirky, fun illustrations that celebrate both Christmas and the sea…which is perfect for a hot summers Christmas down under!

Biotherm is supporting Mission Blue with product sales, the global ocean charity founded by renowned oceanographer, Dr Sylvia Earle. Biotherm and Mission Blue are dedicating their time and resources to establishing a much needed marine reserve for the Ross Sea, one of the few pristine marine environments left on Earth, and truly worthy of our concern if we want our children’s children to experience the beauty and wonder of the world we enjoy today.

In my Christmas gift pack:

Aquasource Hydration Replenishing Gel

Biosource Hydra-Mineral Cleanser Toning Mousse

Biosource Instant Hydration Toning Lotion.

If you haven’t tried Biotherm before, I highly recommend heading out and trialing their product now (you can actually download a free sample voucher from the link below!). I have acne and blemish prone skin and Biotherm is certainly a product that cleanses and tones effectively, minimizing the chance of breakouts- which I live in fear of.

I found the Hydrating Gel to work quickly and absorb into the skin, so there wasn’t that greasy feeling that you sometimes get from heavy duty 24 hour moisturizers. I am one of those people that also likes a squeaky clean finish to a cleaner and that is exactly what the Cleansing Toning Mousse does. It may not be the best choice for those with already dry skin, but for normal-combination skin, this would work a treat! I am also obsessive about toning, a residue effect from my teen years with bad skin, and I was impressed with the Hydrating Toning Lotion.

So. To spread the love of this delightful little Christmas gift I have two exciting pieces of information. The first of which is that Biotherm has very kindly offered five Biotherm packs up to gift to five lucky readers! To enter, tell us in 25 words or less why you need a Biotherm Christmas Pack in your life this Christmas in the comments section below (please click here for full T&C’s).

Exciting announcement number two is that if you click HERE you can download a voucher for a free trial and sample in store.

Merry Christmas lovelies!!

    I’ve never tried Biotherm before and if I wasn’t already keen as mustard (which I was), your review has made me desperate to try the hydrating gel especially!
