La Biosthetique Eau Tonifiante $48 (body and face toner) and Creme Hydratante $95 (24 hour moisturising treatment cream)
The facts: La Biosthetique is a natural cosmetic range that combines biological purity, prestige, efficacy, design and sustainability. The brand has an international reputation for top end, premium quality, luxury cosmetics. Each product is carefully created and blended with high quality raw materials. The products are subjected to the strictest tolerability and efficacy tests at European University clinics to ensure products are safely created without testing on animals.
The review: The toner is a fresh-smelling misty orange water spray that makes your face feel refreshed and hydrated. Coral algae extracts from the waters of the Île-de-la-Bréhat in France, combined with mineral water from the Black Forest, supply the skin with minerals and trace elements that soothe the skin and stabilise the skin’s acidic protective layer. Apply to face and neck morning and evening after cleansing or simply spray over face and body during the day to refresh. It was a lovely product to use in the extreme heat we had in summer on the Coast and is truly a wonderful product that each woman should have in her skincare closet.
The 24 hour moisturising treatment cream has a delicate apricot scent. Extracts from coral algae, high in calcium concentration, together with mineral water from the Black Forest provide the skin with minerals and trace elements. A natural sugar complex, delivers intensive moisture to the skin. Apply evenly over the face and neck twice daily, morning and evening, after cleansing and toning. This cream is very rich and nourishing and I would probably only recommend it if you have very dry skin or mature skin. After using this lovely cream for a week, it was evident that it would be a perfect night cream for winter.
