Biotique Bio Dandelion Ageless Lightening Serum Review, Swatches: Hi everyone, so it’s the start of a new week. The weather is slowly getting less cold and I am getting the spring vibes already. I have been trying out a lot of skin and hair care products lately and in the coming days, I will have the reviews up. Now I am not a person who always uses high end products. I mean I like to pretty much try out whatever I want to. Drugstore or high end does not make a difference to me as long as the product works. Pretty sure you guys are aware of the brand Biotique which is a an organic Indian brand. I have heard a lot of people talk about it and therefore picked up a few things myself. Let’s get into the details about my experience with this product.

In Detail Biotique Bio Dandelion Ageless Lightening Serum Review, Swatches and My Experience
So Biotique claims that “Biotique products are made of 100% organically-pure, preservative-free ingredients and renewable resources—cultivated, gathered, blended and manufactured in the foothills of the Himalayas”.
Reading this line, I am immediately impressed but hold on! what I am confused about is the fact that if it is all organic, how come the Biotique products have a shelf life of 3 years? I mean this really makes me question the authenticity of their claim. However, may be the composition of the products is such that they can last for 3 years.
Apart from this if you read the packaging, it says that the product was “Formulated in Switzerland” 😮 I mean why would they pick up the ingredients from foothills of Himalayas (Shivalik Hills? ) and carry them all the way to Switzerland to formulate them? 😮
Well, if you have an answers to my questions, please leave a comment below and let me know. I would be thankful if you can shed some light on this.
Coming to our review,
The Biotique Bio Dandelion Ageless Lightening Serum comes in a very basic plastic bottle with a screw open top. The mouth of the bottle is plain open. There is no nozzle or anything. Outer carton box of the packaging has all the details about the product. The ingredients are listed on the outer carton box as well as on the bottle itself which is really convenient. The only downside is the fact that if I am not careful enough while pouring it out, sometimes I take out more than needed amount of this product and absolutely hate to push any product back into the bottle. Hence, this leads to product wastage. Hence I definitely feel biotique can consider improving their packaging a tiny bit for the sake of convenience. Otherwise I love how they have kept it simple as well as informative.
Consistency, Texture, Smell
The serum is white in colour. It is very creamy in consistency and has a non sticky texture. It has an herbal minty smell to it which honestly I love. This does kind of remind me of a “balm” but still, I say it smells pretty nice. The serum is absolutely non sticky and does not feel oily whatsoever.
How I Use it
I have been using this for a month now. I usually use it during the night since it does not have any SPF in it. So after I wash my face before going to bed, I take a pea sized amount of this serum and apply it over my facial skin and neck region. It never feels greasy or sticky. It gets absorbed quickly and leaves no cast. (So your husband won’t have a problem 😛 )
So after 4 weeks, I can say that this serum is one of the best products at this range which shows visible effects on the skin. It hydrates my combination skin very well. Because it imparts the moisture to the skin, the skin appears more plum and glowy. It does help reduce the appearance of dark spots but I haven’t noticed any major difference yet.
As far as its lightening claim is concerned, no ma’m! This did not change my skin tone. It does makes my skin look healthy and bright but does not change the melanin concentration of my skin. Fun fact: Every individual on the planet has the same number of melanocytes, only their activity (melanin production) differs from person to person or race to race. Melanin actually is a protecting factor against skin cancer. So be proud of your complexion, don’t try to change it. You’re beautiful just the way you are.
PS. Cannot comment about its effects on wrinkles since I have been living at my university campus and couldn’t ask my mom to use it yet.
I have to say I enjoy using this product as my daily night time moisturiser. I have used some really expensive night creams, but this one works equally well if not better. It never caused any break outs on my skin and in fact soothes my skin to an extent. The serum did impart brightness and glow to my skin. Although this did not really work for the pigmentation around my lips or change my complexion/skin tone, I am happy that it helped moisturise my skin without breaking me out.

CONs of Biotique Bio Dandelion Ageless Lightening Serum
1. The bottle mouth does not have any controlling mechanism.
2. The serum has no sun protection factor in it, so I can’t use this during the day.
1. If you have dry skin, use this serum first and massage it well. After this, use your daily moisturiser. I feel that this serum is not moisturising enough for dry skin beauties.
2. If you plan to use this during the day, please make sure to apply your sun screen product on top of this.
3. Use this product regularly to see the results. It showed results on my skin after using for a month.
4. Do not keep this product in direct sunlight because it has organic ingredients and according to the claims this does not have any preservatives in it. Hence, keeping it in direct sunlight may destroy its properties.
