Biotique Bio Coconut Whitening & Brightening Cream Review: Biotique is a brand that you can reply upon without any doubt. All the products in this brand are made with 100% natural botanicals. No chemicals. No preservatives. No animal testing. All in eco-friendly and recyclable packaging. I used almost 10-15 skin and haircare products in Biotique range and none of them has disappointed me till date.
4 years ago, my friend suggested me this product as she knew I am so fond of coconut scent and flavor. Just out of curiosity, I purchased this product as the price is also very reasonable. After using it for almost a month, I understood that this is the product which I can rely upon for many more years.

In Detail Biotique Bio Coconut Whitening & Brightening Cream Review, Swatches and My Experience
Before jumping into the review, I hope everyone reading this knows their skin type. If not, then I have a simple technique for you which I followed to test my skin type.
Step1: Wash your face with a very mild and gentle cleanser like Cetaphil.
Step2: Wait for 1 hour without applying any product on the skin.
After waiting for 1 hour, if you skin feels itchy and tight with flakey patches, then you are a dry skin type. And, if your skin feels normal around your cheek area, oily/shiny on your T zone (ie., nose and forehead), then you have a combination skin. If your face feels oily/shiny all over the face, then you are oily skin type. If your skin is not too oily/ dry and its normal all over the face, then you are blessed with Normal skin.
Personally, I have a dry acne prone skin (many of us have a misconception that acne only affects people with oily skin. But the truth is, People with all different skin types suffer from acne). This long description about skin types in this review is because to give a disclaimer that this product is NOT advisable for oily skin type people.
Now, lets get into the review of “Biotique Bio Coconut Whitening And Brightening Cream”.
Packaging, fragrance and durability: The product comes in a pretty simple white colored tub with green cap in sealed packs – with seals clearly stating do not purchase if broken. The good thing about Biotique packaging is that they provide a protective case on top of the tub to avoid accidental leakage of product which makes it quite travel friendly.
When you open the tub, you feel a good scent of coconut and it smells so ayurvedic. I loved that fragrance, its so soothing. And, the quantity of the product is very good comparing to the price. 50gm of product lasts for about 3 months if you use on daily basis.
My experience: I have been using this product from past 4 years but sometimes shift to other products in between if anyone suggests me that its working wonders for them. I tried high end moisturizers as well like Clinique moisture surge, Laneige moisture cream etc., but trust me, none of them worked effectively for my skin like the Biotique.
I agree that these products have better ingredients and better reviews than the Biotique cream but somehow, I was not so satisfied with them. I still experiment with other products but whenever I feel like my skin is not accepting those, I jump back to Biotique.
The texture of this product is cream based. Hence, it feels heavy on your skin when you apply it. But gets quickly absorbed within 5 min and your skin feels so soft and moistured after that. This effect lasts till you wash your face again.
For oily skin people, I don’t advice this because it makes your skin even more oily and may lead to breakouts. For dry skin people, it gives your skin a healthy glow and makes it creamy and soft touch. You can also use it under your makeup,it gives a good dewy finish.
This product is said to be a whitening and brightening cream but I’m not 100% sure if its true to this claim. I have a slight uneven skin tone on my forehead and around the lip area and there has been some improvement since I’m using this product. But the discoloration is not completely wiped out.
If you are exposing to sun, you have to use a separate sun block because this cream doesn’t have SPF content, so does not provide UVA & UVB protection.
