REVIEW: Biotique Bio Berberry Refreshing Makeup Remover

I always feel like Biotique is a brand that is not shown enough love. I know I have been using many of their products for years now and some of them are staples in my skincare and hair care. They are so much a part of my routine (like toothpaste) that it never struck me that I hadn't reviewed them.

Today I am going to reviewing Bio Berberry Refreshing Makeup Cleanser from Biotique.

Priced at 170INR for 120ml.

Biotique has a very standard packaging. A simple plastic bottle with a green cap. The makeup remover is of a liquid cream consistency. I don't like using this remover for my eye makeup. I find that if it goes inside the eye, it stings. Also since this is not a bi-phased remover so getting mascara and waterproof eyeliner off is very difficult.

How I love to use this product is for my face makeup. Once I have removed my eye makeup, I take a bit of this product in my palm and apply it to my face like a normal moisturiser. I like to massage it in a bit. Once I have worked the product into my skin, I use a wet wipe, or more precisely,I like to use the Johnson baby wipes. I find that they are very moisturising and rather then use a cotton pad or a cloth, this wet wipe works very effectively.

Once I have wiped off all the makeup, I use a facewash for that squeaky clean feel.

This is at the end of the day, with some makeup remaining on my face.

The reason I prefer using this makeup remover for my face makeup is because of the cream like texture. I find that the bi-phased makeup removers are best used with cotton pads and given that my skin is kind of sensitive, the cotton or cotton pads feel harsh. Also I feel like the foundation never comes off completely with a bi-phased makeup remover and my skin just feels dry.

With the Biotique Bio Berberry remover, my skin feels refreshed. Sometimes, even if I don't have makeup on, I like to use this and the baby wipe just for that fresh feeling at the end of the day. It is a routine I follow once I am back from work and then only I sit down to do anything work.

I just finished the bottle that I have and I am definitely going to repurchasing this. I do have other makeup removers to test, but I need this in my stash.

Do let me know if you have ever used this makeup remover before. And if not, have I managed t convince you to try it?
