Biotherm Pure-Fect Skin Cleansing Gel / Review

This Biotherm cleanser I purchased for my daughter. She'll be 14 in a month and so far she hasn't had any major skin issues except for a few clogs here and there and a little tiny pimple once in a blue Moon.

She was almost out of her Avène Cleanance Soapless Cleansing Gel and I guess she was starting to get bored with it. It's an excellent cleanser but she wanted something with a bit of fragrance. Some are sensitive to it and that was the reason why I had chosen Avène in the first place, not knowing how her skin would react.

She's been using it for a little over two weeks now and so far so good. Some mornings she'll simply go for Biotherm's micellar water, reviewed here, but in the evening she uses Biotherm Pure-Fect Skin Cleansing Gel. She likes it which is saying a lot! Like any other girl her age, she's not to much interested in skin care. As long as it keeps her skin clear of blemishes she's happy!

How does Biotherm Pure-Fect Skin Cleansing Gel perform? Beautifully!

Since my daughter doesn't wear makeup I've tried it myself a few times to see how it removed makeup. It did great! I do have to specify that I don't wear foundation but I do wear different powders (bronzer, blush). Surprisingly, it didn't dry my eye area. I know it's not made to remove eye makeup but I'm lazy, one step or nothing is what I like.

Little is needed. It's a clear gel that's neither too thick nor too runny. I use about 1/4 tsp of it and it's enough to cleanse thoroughly face and neck.

Oh I almost forgot, it does remove sunscreen. The ones we use at the moment are La Roche Posay SPF 60 and Ombrelle Spécial Visage/Face SPF 45. Biotherm Pure-Fect Skin Cleansing Gel removed every last traces of these. We don't use the more tenacious Japanese formulas but I would think this cleanser would do a proper job.

Would I recommend Biotherm Pure-Fect Skin Cleansing Gel? Yes!

Readily available everywhere, at $19.00 its a great basic cleanser. If you have combination to oily skin, this is a great one to have for summer, especially at the end of a super hot day. It's refreshing and will get rid not only of makeup and dirt but also of that uncomfortable yucky sweaty film! I've experienced this recently since we've had a few super hot days already.

The nice thing is that it will not strip you skin like other cleansers aimed for these skin types sometimes do. I don't feel any tightness after using it but then again, I don't wait 10 minutes before applying my moisturizer.

Makeup Alley: there are no reviews for this specific cleanser but it would seem that they are a little mixed up. I'm still providing you with the link to Biotherm cleansers for browsing their other offerings in that category.
Beauté-test: 3.5 / 5 stars for 8 reviews.
