One summer while vacationing in Hong Kong for a few weeks, not only was the heat unbearable, but it was causing large pores and oily skin. My solution? March to the closest Sasa and pick up a new face cream of course.
I got the Biotherm’s Biopur cream for oily skin. It has since been repackaged and it’s called the Biotherm Biopur Pore Reducer, non-stop purifying moisturizer. It is a pump bottle, which has its pros and cons: major pro as minimizing bacteria, but the major pro is that it’s so hard to get that last remaining product out!
Like the Aquasource, it is water based and comes out very light (almost like water) so I suppose it would be suitable for those with oily skin. It also has a nice fresh scent and absorbs pretty quickly, with a refreshing cooling effect. The matte finish immediately evened out the look of my pores.
However (I know, there are always cons), perhaps it’s my skin type but the Biopur was just not moisturizing enough for me. I realized later that by using something too light, my skin was producing excess oil to make up for it, which sadly just caused more clogged pores and breakouts. It takes several pumps to cover the entire face, so 50ml disappeared very fast! At $45 a bottle, I would consider this a midrange product. Give it a try if you honestly do have very oily skin, but for myself with combination skin, I wouldn’t buy it again.
