TOP 10 BIOTIQUE PRODUCTS

hello beauties. I am back with another blog post. Today it's about a brand which has transformed my skin care and haircare game.

 Biotique

Years ago, I thought to go natural with my skin care and hair care regime. With the market flooding with a gazillion of brands and products we all get overwhelmed. After years of research and failures, finally I discovered a brand which worked for me. My skin is acne prone and sensitive. I have been suffering from severe cystic acne in the past and finding skin care products that actually dont break me out is a big deal for me. Trust me guys I have tried all natural brands available, Himalaya, patanjali, Lotus Herbals, but none of them worked like Biotique
Today I brought to you my TOP 10 products from Biotique.



BIO NEEM PURIFYING FACEWASH




If you have sensitive, acne-prone skin, the Biotique Bio Neem Purifying Facewash is the best for you. It cleanse your face without drying out your skin. It is best for the humid climate.
It retails for Rs 240 for 300ml

BIO CUCUMBER PORE TIGHTENING TONER



Irrespective of skin tone, climatic condition,etc..one thing that is a must for any skin care regime is a non-alcoholic TONER. Its been years I am using the BIOTIQUE BIO CUCUMBER PORE TIGHTENING TONER. It's so soothing on the skin.Immediately after application, a slight tingling is felt which subsides after 2-3secs. The herbal ingredients present in this toner helps maintain the skin pH balance and tighten the pores, and hence control oil. Ingredients like Cucumber and Peppermint oil refreshes the skin.

BIOTIQUE SOAPS

IF YOU HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN, THEN SOAPS ARE NOTHING LESS THAN NIGHTMARES.
I have never thought in my wildest dream that I will ever love any soap.

  • BIO BASIL & PARSLEY REVITALIZING BODY SOAP

I have a little story. Recently I went for a little trip to my native. Due to excessive humidity and the rainy weather, I started getting really bad skin allergy. I had rashes. My skin was bumpy and extremely itchy. Itchy to the point that at times it bleeds. I stopped applying all my body lotions and started using calamine lotion. But it didn't help at all. Rather made it worst. I stopped using my body wash and wanted to buy a medicated soap instead. At the drugstore, I saw the BIOTIQUE BIO BASIL & PARSLEY BODY SOAP. I asked the salesman there and he said it was good for soothing irritated skin. Also, BASIL being the key ingredient really fascinated me as BASIL and NEEM are used in Ayurveda treatments for skin problems. And this product has both. I got it and used it. The very first day, my scally skin felt soft. The redness looked surprisingly mild. Though I had itching, it was much less. I was sold. A week use and VOILA!! My skin is back to normal. Another wow factor is that, unlike other soaps, BIO BASIL & PARSLEY body soap doesn't dry out your skin. 

It retails for Rs 50 for 75gm
You can buy it from Nykaa.com here and Biotique.com here

  • BIO ALMOND OIL NOURISHING BODY SOAP

After trying out the magical BIO BASIL& PARSLEY body soap, I wanted to try some other body soap from Biotique. BIO ALMOND OIL Body Soap attracted me the most. I have a thing for almonds. I love eating them, and any product with almonds attract me. The BIOTIQUE BIO ALMOND OIL body soap is quite moisturising on the skin. The skin feels supple and silky after application. Its best for the winters.
It retails for Rs 50 for 75gm
You can buy it from Nykaa.com here and Biotique.com here


BIO MORNING NECTOR FLAWLESS SKIN MOISTURIZER



This product is actually a face lotion, but I use it for my body. Its so rich and extremely moisturizing. Its like gallons of water for your skin. It feels hydrated and so soft. The Biotique BIO MORNING NECTOR skin moisturizer is a must-have for the winters.
It retails for Rs 199 for 120ml
You can buy it from Nykaa.com here and Biotique.com here

BIO PAPAYA  REVITALIZING TAN-REMOVAL SCRUB



I would like to start by saying, I am currently using my 4th tub of the BIOTIQUE BIO PAPAYA  REVITALIZING TAN-REMOVAL SCRUB. YES!!
This clay-based exfoliator has perfect sized scrubbing granules which are not harsh on the skin and provides the correct amount of exfoliation to get rid of dead cells, blackheads and all the gunks. The CLAY present in it absorbs excess oil and makes your skin radiant.
It retails for Rs 199 for 75gms

BIO ALMOND OIL SOOTHING FACE & EYE MAKEUP CLEANSER



Though the BIOTIQUE BIO ALMOND OIL CLEANSER is for both face and eye, I dont use it on my face, as it makes my combination acne-prone skin to break out. I use it only to remove my eye makeup and it works wonder. The presence of ALMOND OIL makes it so thick and hence easier to get rid of the stubborn waterproof mascara and kajal. I take the product on my palm and massage it on my eyes. Within seconds all my makeup starts to melt. Yes, its messy but worth it. For the kajal, I take some of the remover on a q-tip and clean the waterline. I feel safe to use this herbal makeup remover on my eyes as it doesn't burn and irritate my eyes. Rather its quite moisturizing for the eye area.
 It retails for Rs 175 for 120ml

The next two products and quite special as these are used by my 4yrs old daughter. Yes. She loves and uses biotique as well from the time she was an year.

It has got very mild fragrance which is great for kids. HONEY in it moisturizes the skin and ALOE VERA soothes, thus keeps our baby's skin soft for hours.

BIOTIQUE BIO GREEN APPLE FRESH DAILY PURIFYING SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER REVIEW

hello beauties,
How are you all doing??I am back with a review post. Generally, I don't review hair care products on my blog and this is because I don't use anything fancy on my hair. Lately, I have been trying to keep my hair care routine quite simple and use herbal products only. I tried many products from herbal brands like Patanjali, Himalaya but all of these brands tend to make my dry hair even dryer, bristle and unmanageable. Recently I got my hands on BIOTIQUE BIO GREEN APPLE FRESH DAILY PURIFYING SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER and I have been using it from past few weeks. So today I want to share my experience with you all.

Biotique is the first ever skin care brand I tried. I first tried their masks and still hooked on to them. I have almost used all their face masks, toners, makeup remover and even my daughter(4yrs) uses biotique baby range. Thats how much I love and trust Biotique.
Well this post is dedicated to my recent found love from Biotique i.e. BIOTIQUE BIO GREEN APPLE FRESH DAILY PURIFYING SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER.


PACKAGING, PRICE & AVAILABILITY


  • The product comes in a transparent, sturdy bottle with a screw-on cap which is quite travel-friendly.

The entire ingredients list is available on the bottle which is always a plus for me.


  • BIOTIQUE BIO GREEN APPLE FRESH DAILY PURIFYING SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER comes in 3 different sizes as can be seen above
  • BIOTIQUE BIO GREEN APPLE FRESH DAILY PURIFYING SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER is easily available at any Biotique counter. You can also buy it online from Biotique website here or from Nykaa here

BIOTIQUE BIO GREEN APPLE FRESH DAILY PURIFYING SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER is LIGHT GREEN in color and has a GREEN APPLE scent. This fruity scent lingers for some time in your hair


MY VERDICT


  • As the name suggests, BIOTIQUE BIO GREEN APPLE FRESH DAILY PURIFYING SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER, is a 2in1 product which has both shampoo and conditioner in one. Usually, when a product claims to be multifunctional, it fails in most of the cases. But to my surprise, this product is indeed a 2in1 product i.e. it's a shampoo and conditioner in one. As I stay at a place where humidity is at its peak all the time. Sweat is never a good thing for me with an oily scalp and dry hair. My hair is dry to the point that it can be bristle immediately after applying conditioner. But this product not only made my hair soft and hydrated, it also cleaned my oily scalp completely.
  • I don't exactly wash my hair daily, but just to try the claim by biotique, I used it daily for a week. Though I caught a terrible cold, my hair felt unbelievably soft and manageable. I didn't apply any conditioner at all. And my hair felt smooth and soft.
With the affordable price and the awesome quality, I would recommend the BIOTIQUE BIO GREEN APPLE FRESH DAILY PURIFYING SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER to you all. do try it out and share your views in the comment section.
I have definitely found my ultimate hair care product and hope you enjoy using BIOTIQUE BIO GREEN APPLE FRESH DAILY PURIFYING SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER too...
Stay wow cause you totally worth it !!!
