Say bye to dry skin with Biotherm Aquasource face creams – plus a Sassy giveaway!

10 September, 2012

Because I have such dry skin (as mentioned in my That Girl interview!), I have a 30 minute before-bed ritual which consists purely of moisturising: night face cream, eye cream, body lotion, another layer of face cream, hair repair serum, lip balm, any other cream you can think of… and I have to say that it gets a little tedious, especially when the only thing on your mind is sleep!

So you could imagine my excitement when the new Biotherm Aquasource face creams came into the office, promising to rid me of all my dry skin woes. I had actually been looking for a new night and day cream for a few weeks – it’s like Biotherm read my mind!

I delved face-first into the night cream, Aquasource Nuit ($390); it’s a high-density hydrating jelly so a little goes a long way. Two pumps and my whole face is covered with a thin layer of jelly that just sits there and gets absorbed throughout the night – totally necessary to beat the dry air-conditioned air!

The day cream, Aquasource Hydration Replenishing Gel ($360), is lighter than the night cream and very non-greasy, which would be perfect for those with oily skin. I’m not as big a fan of this as I am of Aquasource Nuit, simply because I find myself having to re-apply the gel a few times on particularly dry areas in order for my face to be moisturised enough – not great during my morning rush! The lack of SPF protection is a huge bummer too.

As a side note, I know this shouldn’t matter much but both creams smell really good! I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to smear yucky smelling products on my face, no matter how good they are, so this was a definite bonus!

After two weeks of using both lotions, I can say that I’m pretty much in love with Aquasource Nuit! My skin no longer feels tight and my make-up glides on so much better now – looks like I can shave off a few minutes from my night-time moisturising ritual!
