Review: Biotherm Skin Vivo

Disclosure: Provided as a PR sample.

I've been debating whether to write this review for quite some time.  I've been using Biotherm's Skin Vivo anti-aging cream at night for the past couple of months, and while I've not been wowed by it, it has worked its way into my heart, just by Being Nice.  But is nice enough for a premium moisturiser?

Designed for normal to combination skin, it's a gel-cream texture, which spreads very easily across the skin and feels moisturising yet absolutely light.  I apply a fairly decent blob to my face in the evenings after cleansing and find that it quenches my skin, whether it's feeling a little stripped and dry post-peel, or whether it's in its normal slightly dry state.  I always wake up to skin that feels velvety soft, with no residue or excess oil around my nose.  The scent is mild and inoffensive, and the pot probably has a month or so left in it - so about three months supply per pot.

I suppose that my favourite thing about this product is that it's gentle and predictable on my skin.  It doesn't break me out, it doesn't over moisturise, and it doesn't leave my skin feeling thirsty; it's a well balanced product that is simply a pleasure to use.

While I've not noticed a dramatic difference in the quality of my skin, I'm finding myself really liking this product, simply because it's just so nice.  It's pleasant to use, leaves my skin feeling lovely, and it layers well with facial oils and serums. For a basic moisturiser which keeps the skin nicely hydrated and leaves it looking and feeling fresh in the morning, this is a great bet.  While it is a little expensive, I'll definitely be repurchasing.

If you'd like to try this cream, you can grab it directly from Biotherm online, or from Boots, where it will cost you £37 or £38 for 50ml.
