Biotique Bio Peach Clarifying & Refining Peel-off Mask Review
The Biotique Bio Peach Clarifying & Refining Peel-off Mask is as good as an indulgence for that tired, stressed skin at the end of the day. I bought Biotique Bio Peach mask on an impulse when I read that it is for oily and acne-prone skin. I fall under the acne-prone category and any time I purchase a peel-off mask that promises to fix the acne, it has never worked in any way. But I bought this recently and I’m happy with it.
The Biotique Bio Peach peel-off is a bright pink colour liquid that has a heavenly smell of a real peach! And it is very, very watery! It can be quite annoying to put it on without spilling it on yourself. It goes on wet but dries off to a mask that comes off very easily. Unlike most peel-off masks that stick to your face in places and you need to get it off with water, the Biotique Bio Peach comes off in one go. You may follow with water if you want. When the mask dries, your face looks as though you painted it red!
I usually like to steam my face so the pores open up and then lather it on thick. It does not drip so you can use your fingers to put this on. I must say that the mask DOES STING for a minute or two so people with sensitive skin might want to pass this one. When the stinging stops, you get a cool feeling on your face. Like when you’re standing under the fan with water on your face! It’s quite nice actually. The sensation tells you that the mask is working! It takes about 20 to 30 minutes for the mask to dry – this is the only thing that I can complain about really. Considering the liquidity of the mask, no wonder it takes that long to dry!
The directions on the bottle say it can be used daily but I like to use it once or twice a week.
I bought the Biotique Bio Peach hoping it would work on my acne-prone skin but since I have only used this three to four times I haven’t seen any difference in my breakouts. I have been getting zits just as frequently as before, however, it has made my skin soft and added a subtle glow to my face. Post using this, I cannot help but touch my face!

Why I like Biotique Bio Peach?
• Leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean
• Makes the skin soft
• Easy to peel
• Effective than most peel-offs I’ve used
Why I don’t like Biotique Bio Peach?
• Like most Biotique products, storage is an issue. The big mouth of the bottle can easily spill the product. And when that happens, some bits dry out and start accumulating on the rims which is just gross!
• It does sting while it dries so some may have an issue with that.
• The mask takes a little long to dry. I wish it didn’t!
Will I reach for it again?
Unless it works on the breakouts, I am not too sure.
