i'm very lazy n truthfully, i dun practise the basic 3 steps in cleansing..i only use a cleanser n tats it! i know tat its not good but i'm just too lazy to do all the steps n also.."dun have the habit of doing so"
can u advise me on the pricing for Biotherm products?
ie the basic cleanser, toner, moisturizer?
huh?? What free gifts? They never send me anything leh. And I don't receive stickers too. Can tell me more?
I'm using the Whitening range for cleanser and I think it is around $35. For the toner, the normal skin range is around $42 for a big bottle with pump, can use a long time. Then for the moisturiser, I'm now using a day and a nite one, but both cost about $50+ each.
Usually for a good start, it is better to do the 3-steps. It is just a matter of practicing and then it'll become your habit soon. I was lazy too, but after realising that I'm getting old and need to take extra care of it, I started to make myself wake up a bit early to put all the stuff on my face.
I will cleanse, put eye cream, toner, whitening essence, moisturiser, and finally (very important) sunblock. And after that, I don't even put makeup at all, then off I go to work. Natural is beauty mah....
Yeah, I think it is better to let the sales to recommend you the right product. They have quite a variety, but my suggestion would be to go for the 3 basic step first. Then if you are comfortable with the product, you can consider other items like eye cream, serum, etc. They do not have trial pack. Usually when you buy some items that exceed $70 or $100, they will have some free gifts of those mini samples. I think the recently one got the 2-way cake, but I didn't like it. So I ask if she has something else other than that. Then I got a set of the cleanser, toner, and moisturiser of the green range.
I also never come across any stickers leh. Waiting for Babe to come back to me. :|
I think babe refers to the Bio-Club rewards passport. You must first purchase $100/- worth of Biotherm products, then they'll give you a passport. You can get a free sample each month by presenting the passport at the Biotherm counter. For the sticker, you have to spend $50 to get a sticker for your passport. Collect 3 stickers and you get the 1st tier gift (5-pc spa getaway kit), another 3 to get 2nd tier and so on till the 4th tier gift. But it expires by Dec 2001 so it may be too late to start collecting now.
I'm now using the acnopur range cos my skin condition is prone to pimples. My beautician commented that my skin texture has improved!
Though Biotherm products are considered relatively cheap, anyone knows where I can get them cheaper? Does Sasa carry Biotherm?
Thanks for your info. I've recently just spend another $100+ at the Biotherm counter, but nobody ever mention this to me leh. I've always been a faithful customer and how come I never get to know this???
I don't think you can get Biotherm cheaper elsewhere. I've been to quite a few Sasa and those wholesale shop but non of them sell Biotherm products.
Do you still have the receipt? If you have, you can try going back to the same counter and ask for it. If you don't have, can still try your luck. I didn't get my Biotherm passport when I bought about $100+ worth of products at first too cos I thought they would send it by mail. Subsequently, I found out that I must actually collect it on the spot, so I went back to the same counter. I explained that the sales lady was busy serving other customers at that time and probably forgot it. So they gave me one Why not try asking. Still got 3 months of samples to collect.
Mmmm..... I never came across such case leh. Maybe your eyes area are more sensitive. Usually I don't use cleanser to wash my eye area. How about when you use other products? If you are really not suitable for these cleanser, then better don't use. Sorry, can't help much.

I've been using their White Detox Day Essence for about 2 months. Its quite ok, don't really see alot of improvement in the tone of my skin, could be bcos I've only been using it for a short while? The texture is good, easily absorbed as with most Biotherm pdts. But its pricey and I will likely not repurchase since the results are not quite what I had expected.
i am a fan of biotherm..been using their products for 2 years..can see quite a significant improvement - skin is smoother and clearer. From the white detox range, i have tried make-up base, polishing cleanser and night essence. The makeup base is good but the other 2 are all right. I prefer the destress and age-fitness range.
Elsie, yah agree with you that the products are quite ex. Can try getting the products from Sasa as they have a 20% discount.
I just started using Biotherm product for a few days. Seems to be quite good. Now thinking of buying the complete range. Can anyone tell me whether the cleansing milk + toner is necessary or the facial wash is good enough? cos i'm normally very lazy to do 3-step cleansing. Any advice? Thanks
If you use makeup, the cleansing milk will help remove the makeup and any fine traces that the cleanser cannot remove. As for the toner, it closes up the pores and tones up the face after cleansing. It would be better to do 3-step cleansing lor. Daily maintenance can go a long way, and perhaps, save you some money on facial?
<font color="0077aa">Hey ~ have been using Biotherm for the longest time ever. hehee...I use their Acnopur range. I only use their Acnopur cleanser (enuff to remove all my makeup/foundation) and their toner. I use Neostrata as my moisturisor for the day. And at night, i'm using Biotherm Anti Aging Essence. I love the texture..cos it's light and easily absorbed. I've very oily skin. </font>
i am also using biotherm series products. Acnopur. I bought from sasa and they do carry biotherm products. Bought mine for the one at Holland Village. I save a lot buying from sasa. one product save about 7-8 bucks.....
I tried lotsa products and I thought of trying out Biotherm since I read many good reviews here. I've got sensitive skin, and I would want to know if they do give out samples to try first before buying the whole range.
Can anyone recommend the best biotherm outlet/salesgirl that can provide a good consultation of yr skin and also provide samples too?
Went to Biotherm counter at city hall...
bought a scub there...cost abt $40..
wanted to buy other pdts...went to Bugis, Taka counter..seems like the svcs no gd...
its either they ignore me or finally someone attends me, they would just say try this normal toner..then I told them mine maybe a combination skin..then they say I can choose that too...N I say I am quite prone to pimples...then she said I can use this anti-acne prone toner. its like not much of a recommendation.
I got my biotherm products from taka counter, the gal was very friendly and attended to me for quite long. very patient lor. hmmm, but cant say the same about the one at wisma. I guess you just need to find a good sales person who can recommend suitable products for you, if you dont feel comfortable with the person, buy it from somewhere else. I personally find the products quite good, my face feels clearer after 2 wks, their products are not too thick so it doesnt clog up pores, unlike other brands that i've tried.
I just switch to Biotherm recently, think less than a mth. And I feel its good. Therefore, I decided to buy other Biotherm pdts since I had finished using my facial cleanser & moisturizer.
In the end, I have this kind of unhappy experience.
by the way, which product are U using?
muz say that biotherm is v generous with their samples, n that caused me to slowly embrace this brand. Plus the tote bags, document bags given during each promo is juz too gd 2 resist.
In fact, for the recent promo at raffles city, on top of the freebies, they gave away a full sized cleanser ( $39 ) OR toner ( $37! ) fr the 'green' range.
I dont use everything fr 1 range as i miz n match.
for eg, i use the cleanser fr the norma/combo range. Using the toner fr hydra detox range. Using the night soothing essence fr te White detox range. n the new non stop aquasource moisturiser. their body mud scrub is simply out of this world! skin gets a mud treatment while being exfoliated.
Im using their makeup base which comes with an SPF 25. I bought the white based one. Use sparingly though as it can be too 'whitish' when overused.
Anyway, biothem pdts smell great n revives my senses. Loving it
okieee, so far, i rate the service at Taka the best. The one at Parkway so-so as the salesgirl Anise seems more interested in serving taitais.
The one at Seiyu seems quite distant. Raffles city salesgirl r quite nice
