Biotique is one of the favourite brands for natural cosmestics lovers. In this range, products such as Biotique Carrot Sunscreen and Biotique Papaya Scrub are very popular for their wonderful results. Today I have yet another product from Biotique to give review about. It is Biotique Bio Redwood Rose Naturally Tinted Moisturizer. I have used tinted moisturisers from other brands such as Nivea, Garnier, Ponds. Now we have the BB cream in latest trend in all brands. I don’t feel much difference between a BB cream and tinted moisturiser. All the BB creams cost more just for a small quantity compared to tinted moisturisers. So Lets see how biotique differs from other brands.
Lets start from the packging. It is the usual elongated tub in green colour – nothing much to say about it. They have the tub for 55g and if you want to initially try the product- bad luck they don’t have smaller tub. It is also not that much comfortable to carry in handbags – huge and boring tub – the tub is not sleek and sexy to flaunt.
The Biotique Bio Redwood Rose Naturally Tinted Moisturizer is tinted brown in colour and has a heavy pleasant smell. Some may find the smell quite high and irritating but I liked the smell. Well, there are 3 shades – Rose, Olive and Peach. Starting with Rose for fair tone.
The cream is heavy and doesn’t spread smoothly when applied on the face. We need to spread it with some rubbing. After application, it gives a tinted look on the skin as it mentions. It feels soft and plump. There is slight shine on the skin. But after 2 hours, the skin feels slightly oily.
It is a good day moisturiser – as the tinted look is good during the day. It also has SPF 30. Whereas, when I applied it in the night, I feel it makes skin look a shade dark than actual skin colour. So, I avoided using Biotique Bio Redwood Rose Naturally Tinted Moisturizer when I had to go out at night. There were no breakouts on my skin – as I believe it is due the natural ingredients.
WHAT I LIKE:
1) The brand is trustable
2) Smell is pleasant
3) Has SPF 30
4) Smooth and soft moisturiser – gives plump appearance
5) Free from preservatives
WHAT I DISLIKE:
1) Suitable for all skin types – but makes skin look very oily in 2 hours for oily skinned.
2) Packaging is boring
3) No smaller quantity for trying out the product
