I rarely buy products without a gift with purchase because of obvious reasons! When I bought the Biotherm Aquasource Deep Serum, it came with a pouch of deluxe samples and this 15ml jar of Biotherm Blue Therapy Moisturizing Cream Gel For Normal to Combination Skin SPF15 is one of them. The full size – 50ml – retails at CAD$75 by the way, and 15ml is a good size to try it out for a month since this is only for morning use.

First of all, I am also using the Blue Therapy Serum (to be reviewed separately), and I prefer the serum to this ‘cream gel’. The texture threw me off because I was expecting a cream gel but it is a cream. It’s not the thickest cream but it is rather emollient, and I do find that it tends to feel greasy especially under makeup. Although it is for normal to combination skin, it feels more like it’s meant for drier skin types. Even on my dehydrated skin, this looks and feels greasy and after an hour or so, even with a primer, my makeup smears a bit.

This is scented and though I like the fragrance it does linger quite a bit, so if you are sensitive towards fragrances you probably should consider this (most Biotherm products are fragranced except for one line for sensitive skin). I like the scent though – but it is rather strong. As for the anti-aging claims, after using this for a month (you don’t need a lot unless you have dry skin), I didn’t notice any difference in my skin at all. The cream gel is expensive for what it is and I don’t know why they don’t make one without an SPF for night use. It just feels like an exorbitantly priced day cream with a very low SPF that doesn’t really do anything other than hydrate in a ‘sits-on-top-of-skin’ sort of way.

If you must get a Blue Therapy product, I do recommend trying out samples first, and the serum fares better than this day cream gel.
