I am introducing you all to ‘Flawless Skin’ Range from Biotique. I have already reviewed the scrub in my last post. The first step is their face wash. ‘Biotique Bio Morning Nectar Flawless Skin Lotion’ that I am reviewing now forms the last step in this skincare regimen.

My Take on the Product:
The packaging is simple. The revamped version comes in a white plastic bottle with a green screw cap. Previously, Biotique products were housed in dark green colored bottles which had a wide mouth. Though I prefer flip cap I have no complaints over this screw cap. The bottle also comes in an outer carton with all the details.
The lotion is white in color and has a medium consistency. The fragrance is herbal. The scent is strong but not long lasting thankfully.
The lotion is light weighted and gets absorbed by skin quickly. I used it after cleansing, scrubbing and applying a face pack. I have combination skin. It didnt look greasy at all. I didnt get that heavy feel too when I used it at night.
In the mornings and day time when I spent time out in hot sun, the lotion melts amd adds a greasy feel. It is heavy for summer use. This happens only if you have extremely oily and sweaty skin. It is still light when compared to creams. It has SPF, so you dont have to layer too many products. It acts well as a makeup base too.
I recommend you to use this at night if you have oily combination skin. If you have dry or normal skin, you can use it any time.
The formula of the lotion is soft. The ingredients are safe for acne prone skin. It works wonders as a body lotion or hand cream post shower. The lotion is emollient and easy to apply.
I woke up with a baby soft, smooth, nourished, moisturised skin after using this flawless skin regimen. It kept my skin hydrated night long. There was also a temporary brightening effect. I also notice a lightening of blemishes and improvement in the acne. I think it is due to the ingredients with anti microbial properties that doesn’t seem to irritate my easy to annoy skin type.
Natural formulations loses its efficacy very quickly once it is opened, therefore I suggest you to buy the smaller version. The only con is that no mention is made of the mysterious QS Lotion Base. I would like if the Brand makes a note of the complete ingredients list in the packaging.
The lotion is soothing and cooling. It is a good product. Nourishes skin well and doubles up as a sunscreen. As of now, I wont be repurchasing it, as I am testing a spray. This is best suited for beauties blessed with dry skin.
