EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
Content: 100 ml.
- Bio Honey Gel face wash comes in an usual transparent tube with all the product details written on top. The cap shuts tightly and is travel friendly.
- It has a honey color. Additionally, it has really good smell, a little like honey.
- The consistency is quite runny which i feel is no big deal as it makes it easy to apply and lather up.
- A small quantity is enough for each use.
- Bio Honey Gel face wash leaves my face soft and smooth.
- It cleanses really well and is effective in removing dirt, grease etc.
- Also, it makes the skin a tad bit fairer when used consistently for a month.
- It removes blemishes and closes up the pores slightly.
- Surprisingly, it can be a part of your makeup removal process. Yep! It removes makeup really well.
- Shelf life : 36 months.
- No detailed ingredients list. The preservatives and other stuff that is responsible for the gel like formula and the foaming agent is not mentioned. While you can certainly claim the 3% Ritha fruit pulp lathers, it doesn’t lather as much as this product does.
- It is not 100% natural or organic like it claims! I mean it is hard for a completely ayurvedic product to last for 3 years. So no, it is a false claim.Sorry Biotique, you just went down on my trust meter!
- Also, I don’t feel it is suitable for all skin types. While it is okayish for dry skins during summer, I would never recommend it during winters. It makes the skin patchy and super dry.
- Not recommended for sensitive skin. While it didn’t cause any problem for me, my cousin who has a sensitive skin had skin irritation. Her nose corners became black.
- 119 bucks for 100 ml is a bit costly according to me for a normal good enough face wash like this.
Rating : 3/5.
- Vary the quantity used according to your skin type with dry skin using up the least quantity and oily skin using a bit more.
- Using a good moisturizer is mandatory for dry skinned beauties.
MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE
I have mixed feelings for this product. While it is a good face wash by normal standards- I mean it does what a standard face wash should do perfectly, the tall ( I mean, the Eiffel Tower tall :P) claims makes me super hesitant to recommend it. My candid opinion about this product is this- it cleanses, brightens and lightens complexion yeah. But I don’t think it’s 100% soap-free or organic or preservative free. Neither is it suitable for all skin types. So, I’m hesitant to believe the dermatologist tested claim.
Would I recommend it? If you have normal or oily non-sensitive skin and are looking for a good face wash and don’t mind the ingredients and stuff, go for it.
Would I buy again? Nope.
