In My Makeup Kit: Biotherm Aquasource Skin Perfection Moisturiser

Sasha Pivovarova BiothermI think I mentioned before what a skincare orgy it is at the moment at MM HQ. From being distinctly unimpressed about most skincare and sticking to my faves, I have discovered some absolute gems lately – Aesop as you all know, and also Biotherm’s Aquasource moisturizer, new to my kit.

I actually worked on the commercial for this in London, with Kay Montano doing makeup on the unbelievably gorgeous Biotherm spokesmodel, Russian Sasha Pivarova. Statuesque, gorgeous and glamorous in towering boots, Sasha was everything you’d like your supermodel to be. At lunch I discovered she was lovely as well – very down to earth and nice, an unexpected bonus. Two things I will tell you – she loves her coffee, and yes, her eyes really are that blue!

When I got a chance to try the new Aquasource moisturizer I was slightly trepidatious as often moisturizers that have offered a high water content actually leave your skin feeling drier than it started, as the water evaporates and seems to take more water from the skin. But new technology has radically improved these and Aquasource not only feels like water on the skin (which is lovely and refreshing in summer), but my skin really retained the moisture and in the morning it still felt hydrated, and not like a dried up old walnut. And happily, no breakouts which I can sometimes get when I switch skincare. In addition, it’s such a nice base for makeup that I’ve slipped some in my kit (sorry Kiehl’s, for the first time in nearly a decade, you’ve been relegated!)

Here is the lovely Sasha P in one of her European Biotherm campaigns (I love it when she talks about kung-fu! So awesome with her Russian accent.)

  1. I really love this, Miss Mole – firstly what pros like you have in your kit (tell me all!) but also that a product I haven’t tried yet is worth a pop. Will be seeking a go myself this week!

    1. I hope you like the Aquasource – let me know how you go. Also don’t forget if there’s anything you want to know, just ask – I’m always happy to talk about what’s in my kit. (Ad nauseum, truth be told!)

  2. I LOVE their aquasource range! Been using it for 2 years now and absolutely adore what it has done for my skin. Recently purchased the new moisturiser and can safely say it’s better than ever. Also love Sasha, so so pretty and ethereal!

    1. Unfortunately the ad that we shot has shown up on Youtube yet, so this is an older one and I don’t know what the makeup artist used on her eyes – although they do look beautiful! I will keep an eye out for the one I worked on and see if I can post that too.
