Biotherm Aquasource Non-stop SOS emergency hydration mask review

Biotherm is a kind of underdog brand in my opinion. Everyone's raving about Bioderma, Origins, Kiehls, Eve Lom, Elemis, countless French pharmacy brands, but no one seems to mention Biotherm.

Biotherm was the first high-end skincare brand I used back in my mid-twenties and I loved it. Then I somehow fell out of the habit of buying their products and was attracted to many other brands - drugstore and others, depending on my finances - never to return to Biotherm, except for last holidays when I received a couple of jumbo-sized samples from

The Aquasourse Non-Stop sos mask, which I'm about to review today, is yet another great product from the brand.
It looks like a lightweight white cream, when you apply it it does feel and look like a highly mousturising cream, with no white cast or residue. You need to keep it on for about 15 minutes to allow it to work and then just wipe the excess with a damp cotton pad. The instructions don't mention following it with a regular moisturiser, so I don't.

First of all, what I liked about this mask was that although it's highly moisturising, it didn't make my oily skin greasy. I could use this in the morning and still follow with my make-up routine, which remained unaffected by so highly moisturising a mask.
And secondly, it made my skin feel amazing! This masks gives an immediate sensation of comfort and pleasure due to its lightweight consistency and gorgeous scent. After wiping the product off my skin looks glowy, but not oily and feels sooo smooth and supple.

This mask targets all skin types in need of quenching. I usually use clay masks to target my pores and oiliness, but this one felt so amazing on my skin that I'm considering getting it full size. A little goes a long way, so I think it might be well worth the investment.

Disclaimer: I received this product as a complimentary sample for my personal use and I'm not affiliated with any company. I am not paid to do this review and everything I said here is my personal opinion.
