What is Berberry?

The cleansing lotion comes in a white, plastic see-through bottle with a green screw-off cap. It’s the “signature Biotique packaging.” I wonder why they can’t work on it. Biotique products are so good, but the way they are packaged really needs to be changed. The bottle has no dispenser at the top. The mouth is a little wide and it becomes difficult to control the quantity of product you need to dispense. Even though the cleansing lotion is not runny, but still, a pump dispenser at the top or tube-type packaging will make it easier to use this.

My Take on Biotique Bio Berberry Refreshing Cleansing Lotion:

I have combination skin type which gets a little dry with the onset of winters. So, I switch to cleansing lotions as my night -time facial cleansers instead of my regular face washes.

Biotique Berberry cleansing lotion is a white-colored lotion of slightly thick consistency, neither too runny nor too thick; spreads easily on the face.  This has this fragrance which is common of most herbal-ayurvedic products, but nothing that bothers me.

I take a little more than coin-sized amount of the cleansing lotion, massage on my face for about a minute and then wash this off. Since it’s a soap-free product, it does not lather. I do miss that “feel” of washing my face that comes with normal face washes, but again, I know I need this for my slightly dry winter skin.

It leaves my face completely clean and makes it soft. It also removes my routine makeup (like kohl, compact, liner). Most of such creamy cleansers I haven’t liked as they leave behind a greasy film, but with this, I don’t see my face getting any greasy film after washing this off.

The pack suggests that you can also remove with a cotton swab, but I like to wash this off.

It suits my sensitive/combination skin and it suggests that it is suitable for all skin types. This is the second bottle that I purchased, the first one lasted me for about 20 days, as I use it every night.

Overall, a nice creamy cleanser and I will be using it all this winter.

Pros of Biotique Bio Berberry Refreshing Cleansing Lotion:

  • Cleans my face well, removes routine makeup/dirt.
  • Creamy formula, spreads easily on the face.
  • Makes skin soft after use.
  • Leaves behind no greasy veil after washing the cleansing lotion off.
  • Is a mild formula, does not sting my face.
  • The fragrance it carries is not bad.
  • Suitable for all skin types.
  • Fairly priced.
  • Easily available.

Cons of Biotique Bio Berberry Refreshing Cleansing Lotion:

  • Slightly difficult to get along with packaging (without any dispenser).
  • Doesn’t lather, so you may miss out on that “feel” of face washing, which is even though not a con as such 😛

          uske baad cadburys had to rope in amitabh bachan :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

          1. yes..I remember..and that was the time when Dairy milk changed their packaging and bragged so much about it in their ads too…donno whats wrong with them again now!!!! 😐

            1. I was out wid frends last week, n we got a few dairy milk chocies….the normal , plain ones tasted horrible :yuck: :yuck: only the expensive variations like silk, temptation were fine 😐 😐 😐

  4. Hi Nupur nice review… I’ve been eyeing this for sometime, but not all of Biotique products suits me. Its like, if they suit me they r excellent.. Or they break me out 😐 😐
    Now I’ll definitely check this out :yes: :yes: :yes:

  5. Nice review nupur…though it is for all skin types ,but do you think this will do well for oily skin?
    it looks so tempting but when i hear about word ‘creamy ‘ i become a lil apprehensive!(phew)

    1. Thanks Srishi 🙂
      ummm… see, I have slight oily skin, which gets a lil dry in winters….n it suits me well… if ur skin is super oily, u can skip this, and try Cetaphil cleanser 🙂

  6. Nupuriiiiiiiiiii…slowly from aroma magic I am shifting towards Biotique….and I want a cleanser because my avon one is over :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: sahi time… :woot: :woot: :woot:

    1. Jomol…the first face pack i got in life was from Biotique only… :yahoo: :yahoo:
      but this not like a normal foaming cleanser…its a creamy one :victory2: :victory2: :victory2:

  7. “I tried googling Berberry and its benefits but google suggested (and showed) Burberry and distracted me completely for good 3-4 hours” :hihi: :hihi: :hihi: :hihi: :hihi:
    Google uncle ki jai ho! :announce: :dumb: :lol2:

    But jokes aside,this seems pretty nice for a night time cleanser. :preen: I think I’ll check this out the next time I go shopping.It looks pretty nice,especially for winters. :haanji: But I’ll stick to foaming cleansers for daytime,of course. :tongue:
