Biotique Pistachio Ageless Nourishing & Revitalizing Face Pack Review

by Shalini on January 31, 2011 · 74 comments

Hi all I am back with another review. Today I would like to share my reviews on a Face-pack which I love these days. I always had a love hate relationship with Biotique products. There are couple of products I love and this product would top the list.

It is Bio Pistachio Ageless Nourishing & revitalizing Face pack – 55g for Rs 199 (I got it for 180)
That’s how the pack looks. It comes in a green Tub/jar (don’t know what to call it).

Biotique Pistachio Face Pack

Let’s see what Biotique says about this product:
A skin treat used by ancient Queens. The goodness of Almond, Pistachio, Saffron and Lentils nourishes the skin while making it fairer and smoother. It can be used every day.
Its light green in color, thick and I am sure will last a dozen uses.

Ingredients: Pista, Kesar, Jaiphal, Badam, Geru, Banhaldi, Mom & Surajmukhi

About Pistachio Nut Oil – It is ideally suited for moisturizing in the form of an emulsion. Pistachio nut oil also contains an appreciable amount of linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid.
Now coming back to the Pistachio Pack – it is Nourishing and Revitalising Pack and is beneficial for even the most sensitive of skins. This efficient formula revitalizes your skin and provides all the nutrients it needs. Your skin immediately recovers its superb comfortable feeling.

Directions to use:
Apply a thick layer on cleansed face & neck for 15-20 mins and then wash it off with lukewarm water. Application of moisturizer afterwards is optional.

I have dry/ sensitive skin so not every facepack/ mask suits me. During winters problem becomes worse and no matter what all I apply (Day & night) it used to feel and look dry, stretched. One day an angelic SA suggested me this pack and as they say rest is history. I have been using this product for two months now and absolutely love the way it makes my skin soft & supple after each application. It has actually proved all the claims made by it absolutely true.

The bottle says it can be used daily for 5 – 10 mins, but hey, who’s got the time. I use it for 30 mins about 2 times a week, and see instant results, which is more pronounced and noticeable the next day. It burns/ tingles for initial 5-7 seconds (which is normal) but end results are superb.

Biotique Pistachio Face Pack

What I liked about Biotique Pistachio Face Pack

  • Bio Pistachio is a face pack that will best suit dry or mature skin, especially during winters. I no more see flakiness or dry patches on my face as it gives required moisture to the skin.
  • It’s kind of creamy in texture and doesn’t dries off and makes skin stretchy.
  • Even after washing it off skin feels absolutely moisturized and supple. I can see my skin looking even & smoother after couple of applications. I have suggested it to couple of my colleagues (with my type of skin) and they too love the pack now.
  • It hasn’t caused breakouts and gives a radiant look.
  • Product is thick and will last long. One spoon (Its weird but I use spoon to scoop out the product) if more than enough to cover entire face.

Dislikes about Biotique Pistachio Face Pack

  • The packaging- A tube might have worked wonders. Pack gets into the nails.. ewww
  • Smell – Intense. I like mild fragrances only.
  • It claims to suit all skin types but I have my apprehensions and wouln’t suggest it to people with acne prone skin/ oily skin, it might cause break outs due to its super-moisturizing tendency.
  • I might not use it in summers when my skin tends to get little greasy and during that I would like to stick to mud packs.

All in all I am pretty satisfied with this face pack and surprised with the results. If you don’t mind the price go for this. I would give it :-* :-* :-* +0.5 and yes would buy it again.

shalini Dhillon January 31, 2011 at 9:36 pm

Hey Bhavna So far only people with Dry skins have found it suitable… I believe it wouldn’t work for acne prone & oily skins 🙁


Rati January 31, 2011 at 11:44 am

I like these ready to use packs because most of the time I don’t find time to make home made face packs. Never heard of pistachio as a skin care products. This looks tempting. :))


shalini Dhillon January 31, 2011 at 9:37 pm

It is actually great for dry skins:) If u have dry skin u must give it a shot :victory:


Rati January 31, 2011 at 11:45 am

Actually it looks like pista icecream. 😛 😛


calicoaster January 31, 2011 at 11:51 am

yumm yumm!! 😛 😛


Rati January 31, 2011 at 1:08 pm

:toothygrin: :toothygrin:


anks January 31, 2011 at 11:57 am

Sonam January 31, 2011 at 11:58 am

No Rati..the color is too green (on the ugly side ) to look like pista ice cream 😀 😀 😛


Rati January 31, 2011 at 1:09 pm

Ugly?? :lol2: :lol2: :lol2: :lol2:


Sonam January 31, 2011 at 2:53 pm

Arre pista ice cream has a nice light green color na …this is a bit blackish :)) :toothygrin:


anks January 31, 2011 at 11:57 am

Nice review shalini! I too like the biotique face packs…. they give instant skin brightening!


shalini Dhillon January 31, 2011 at 9:38 pm

Sonam January 31, 2011 at 12:03 pm

I love Biotique products :-* I cant use this as I have oily skin..but in general Biotique products have worked on me (touchwood touchwood)….
Whenever any review on Biotique is written here,I read it without fail :)) :kissing:


Ankita January 31, 2011 at 6:10 pm

Sonam, I have oily skin too..what biotique products have you used? I use the papaya scrub and its worked well for me so far!


shalini Dhillon January 31, 2011 at 9:39 pm

Hey ankita even though i have dry skin I loved their papaya face scrub a lot 🙂


Naina January 31, 2011 at 12:10 pm

Biotique never suits me …never :((


Jinal January 31, 2011 at 12:17 pm

same here….it never suits me….I never dare to try them too having one bad experience :((


calicoaster January 31, 2011 at 12:45 pm

Great review Shalini..I have oily/combination skin…So, I don’t think this product is for me. :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: for advice!!


shanaiia January 31, 2011 at 12:58 pm

lucky u can use biotique products 🙂

they dont suit me and ive had breakouts with their products 🙁


Rati January 31, 2011 at 1:11 pm

exactly the same thing happens with me. Just cannot use Biotique products.


shanaiia January 31, 2011 at 1:22 pm

Guess its just not for us. :(( u have sensitive skin 2 Rati??


Rati January 31, 2011 at 2:56 pm

No Shanaiia, i dont ahve sensitive skin but Biotique products just dont suit me. They break me out and cause irritation to my skin. :((


shanaiia January 31, 2011 at 3:35 pm

I see…I do have sensitive skin but I would guess its the products..


ashna January 31, 2011 at 1:33 pm

nice review wen i read the ingredients i was so tempted to eat it :woot: i love pistachio keasr milk and badam……..anyways i will sure purchase it :waytogo: but first i have to finish my 5-6 packs that are lying ideally in my drawer :whistle: i m such a lazy soul i buy the products but dont use it religiously :secret2:


ramya January 31, 2011 at 2:39 pm

sounds like a good one…. ncie review shalini…. but can a pack be used daily ?:)


Aditi January 31, 2011 at 3:03 pm

:thanks: Shalini!! So far I have only used biotique pineapple foaming gel, cucumber toner, bio musk root hair pack, and bioberry lip balm…..all based on IMBB recommendations. :)) and they work great for me too. :bravo: I am super tempted to buy this product after reading your review….but since this is a moisturising pack and I have a combination acne prone skin …. i cant use it. :(( 🙁 Last time i tried using Lotus frujuvenate pack…which is also quite moisturising…and it broke me out immediately. :stop:


Ankita January 31, 2011 at 6:14 pm

I was thinking of buying Lotus frujuvenate pack but since I have a similar skin type I’ll give it a miss. I’ve been using Lotus tea tree face pack and its worked well for me!


Aditi January 31, 2011 at 6:35 pm

Hey Ankita, then i’ll try the tea tree face pack next time. thanks.. :)) .hope it works for me too. :fingersxd: :fingersxd: I’m using Lotus Acnegel with tea tree oil…although it hasn’t worked wonders for my acne and blemishes…there were no side effects either. 🙂


Ankita January 31, 2011 at 8:32 pm

Aditi, i’ve used that too. It did help but not to a great extent. I still have half of it left though I used quite regularly for about 5-6 weeks. Thankfully my acne is pretty much gone now but left with a little bit of scarring :(. I’m using TBS tea tree lotion these days and its really good.


Aditi January 31, 2011 at 9:57 pm

I’ve heard a lot about TBS tea tree oil too. But I’ve never ever used TBS products…. :((


Natasha January 31, 2011 at 5:18 pm

scarlett, wher ehav u been? u dintt even tell me the results of that clear gloss thing


Ankita January 31, 2011 at 6:16 pm

Nice review Shalini! this sounds very tempting but with my oily acne prone skin, I don’t think it’ll work 🙁


shalini Dhillon January 31, 2011 at 9:42 pm

Oops !!! I will try and do some survey around and surely suggest something for oily/ acne prone skin for you Ankita O:) O:)


Ankita February 1, 2011 at 9:45 am

That’ll be soo helpful Shalini..thanks! :thanks:


bhumika January 31, 2011 at 7:54 pm

neha January 31, 2011 at 8:37 pm
