Biotique Cocobutter Cream Review
The biotique cocobutter cream is another product that I got during my pregnancy to avoid stretch marks. I have no idea whether it worked or not but it did show intense moisturising effect on my skin and my skin was left soft and smooth. Since the cream is pretty thick I use it immediately after my bath and even then I really have to give good massage, for the skin to absorb the cream. I used this for almost 6 months once in the night and bio oil once in the morning. Since I felt this is sticky I stopped using this and then started using the bio oil both in the morning and night.

Unlike The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Cream this one smells pretty decent and bearable. I really can’t describe the fragrance but the fragrance is mild and it should not be a problem for many of us here. The cream is pretty thick and the 60 gms tub costs Rs.180 !!!!
Pros of Biotique Cocobutter Cream
- Smell is bearable and not disturbing.
- Easily available.
- Leaves the skin smooth and moisturized after application.
- Has got pretty long shelf life.
Cons of Biotique Cocobutter Cream
- Cream is thick and hence little massage in the skin is necessary for the skin to absorb the cream. I prefer lotions to such thick creams.
- Price is very high.
- I have no idea about the effects on pigmentation but it doesn’t help much in avoiding stretch marks. I prefer Bio oil to this cream.
- It feels a bit sticky.
- Comes in a tub and hence not hygienic to dig my hands every time in the tub. So I need a spatula to get the product out.
My Rating –:-* :-* :-*
Will I Repurchase – No. I don’t find any reason to buy this again. I have better moisturizers and bio oil so why do I need this.
When I had finished with my review my friend who used this mentioned it did help her in lightening her stretch marks !!! Might be it just didn’t work for me . 🙂
