Indian summer has been growing even scorcher and I particularly stay away from hot stuff, whether it is to eat or drink or to apply! What I mean is I like my breakfast which is cold, like a glass of cold juice, muesli with cold almond milk, cold buttermilk in the evening and so on. Even in skin care I stay away from products that super rich or thick and make me feel hot. I always opt for products that are lighter in feel and gives a kind of freshness after use. On the same thought, I have been on a summer skin care routine using Biotique products. They are Biotique Bio Papaya Exfoliating Face Wash, Biotique Bio Honey Gel Refreshing Foaming Face Wash and Biotique Bio Sandalwood 50+ SPF UVA/UVB Sunscreen Ultra Soothing Face Lotion and today I will share my experience and thoughts over it!
About The Looks!
Though almost all the Biotique packagings are similar, these have a little fresh and different feel to them. The face washes come in a squeezy tube packagings and are in pretty big sizes! The name of the brand, product and it’s key ingredient is printed on the front and the back has the detailed ingredients, use, claims, price and everything else. The sunscreen, however, comes in a bottle packaging with the, as usual, green cap. Here the difference is the base color of the sticker. It’s of pale yellowish color instead of white. On the sunscreen as well, the name of the brand, product, key ingredient, and properties are printed on the front and the back has the detailed ingredients, etc. The colors of the product inside all three actually impart a strange and unique freshness to its look! I really like it!!

My Summer Skin Care Routine using these Biotique Products!
It’s very simple! You could have already imagined it but still, I am going mention it here in a few words. I use both the face washes alternatively. I started using the Bio Papaya one first which is an exfoliating face wash and the next day I used the Bio Honey Gel one since it will have restoring and hydrating properties. I continue to use them in the same order. I use the sunscreen every day and I apply it at least twice a day for maximum sun protection!
My experience and thoughts about these Biotique Products!
Biotique Bio Papaya Exfoliating Face Wash – This face wash is of pale green color with a gel-like averagely thick consistency. Even from outside the tube the face wash appears pretty bubbly and you can’t really tell the difference between the bubbles and the scrub particles. Once I take some out in my palm and start applying it on my face I can feel them. They are gentle and just by changing the pressure you apply with your hand you can get either a very gentle or a little better exfoliation. It foams very less for a face wash but I really don’t mind because I have seen many that won’t foam much but still cleans great and so does this one! It has a very pleasant scent to it something related to a fruit or a vegetable and even though it says papaya on the packaging I can’t be sure if the scent is of the same! My skin feels refreshed and the lightness of this face wash makes me feel great! It does not heat your skin up but it actually calms it down and the scent is the major contributor to the awesome experience I get using this face wash. I honestly love this one!! It’s just perfect for summers!
Biotique Bio Honey Gel Refreshing Foaming Face Wash – This one is a very pale pink colored face wash and the consistency is like a gum. It is slightly on the runnier side but not water like at all! In the palm of my hand, it appears almost colorless. This one apparently has honey as the key ingredient and that is what I feel on my face when I apply it. It foams a little and then when you try to wash it off, it won’t come off easily. It has that strange sliminess behind which comes off only when you keep washing it off with water. Many face washes have this residual moisture that they leave behind and I personally don’t like it. Thankfully this one is not too stubborn. The scent is a lovely one and it reminds of my favorite cream from the brand which I reviewed here. The scent is very Indian Ayurvedic one and I love it! This face wash does its job pretty well! It cleans my skin and makes it look fresh yet hydrated. Even with honey in it, I don’t feel any heat, instead, it feels very light and amazing! I like it a lot!
Biotique Bio Sandalwood 50+ SPF UVA/UVB Sunscreen Ultra Soothing Face Lotion – This is my first sunscreen from Biotique and I must say I was surprised to see one with SPF 50+ and with UVA/UVB protection! I was really happy to find a sunscreen of such high sun protection in a budget! The key ingredient of this sunscreen is Sandalwood. Isn’t that great! Sandalwood is known for its cooling properties and incorporating it in a sunscreen that might make you feel hot and greasy in an instant is so smart!! 😀 The sunscreen is a lotion so it is not like any thick cream but the consistency is just like any lotion. It is of pale peachy color and I really like it! Once you start rubbing the product between your palms it will feel pretty liquid like and when you start applying it on your face it thickens up a bit and gets absorbed almost immediately. I won’t say it is matte but it is not greasy either. In fact, it makes my skin breathable in this hot summer! It’s quite light on the skin and doesn’t give any white cast either! I am surprisingly loving this sunscreen! Plus the sun protection it gives is pretty high and I love that fact that it comes from an Ayurvedic source! This will be one of the best affordable sunscreens in my list!
To summarize, I have been loving the summer skin care using these Biotique products. Each one of them has been made keeping in mind the intensely hot summer in India and what a customer would want to experience to feel great! I love the fact that it keeps the feel of heat at bay and makes you feel fresh and light yet doing the job amazingly well. My skin has been happy and feels taken care of!! I highly recommend these products to all of you who like such summery formulas! That is all for today and I will be back with another post very soon! B-Bye!! 😀
