Biotique coconut whitening and brightening milk cream : review

Giving by the dusky lady i am, and those ever new areas of blemishes i get . . i get fascinated to creams that claim whitening brightening :P :P . . no, i do not mean fair and lovely here... i mean those that can even out my tone and since i get tanned like a freakin burning leather i am always in lookout of something that could atleast maintain my basic complexion.



After reading so many positive reviews about bio-coconut cream and its working awesomely on blemishes and tan, i decided to give it a try. It being au naturale and all, i had nothing to lose . . . So did it finally end my search ??? Read on


What the company claims ?

This luxurious cream is blended with extracts of pure virgin coconut, dandelion and manjishtha to fade away dark spots and blemishes. With regular use, skin is noticeably fairer, smoother and brighter.


Ingredients : 

Nariyal (coco nucefera water), Dudhal (Taraxcum officinale), manjistha (Rubia cord folia), Nimba kamla (Citrus nimunum), badam tail (prunus amygdalus), cream base Q.S.


Net content : 50 g 


Emptied my wallet by : 199 INR


My rendezvous with it : 

It is my second biotique product ever. First was the walnut polishing scrub and i was so happy with it that i didnt think twice before grabbing it.

It comes with the oh-so-herbal green packaging. The packaging is good but monotonous. I threw the outer carton and all the time i ended up taking wrong product out of my shelf, scrub instead of this, and this instead of scrub. But this didnt happen for a long time, how. . . did i kind of beauty-marked it . . .noooooo . . i threw it inside my stash of hate products :( . . 




Now, as you open the lid, first thing that strikes you is its smell, some kind of spicy coconut or some thing. Its not pleasant for me, and no, i am not the sensitive nosey types. It almost smelt like some coconut dish that i would never taste !!! ( i know, i am a bad hater... when i dont like something... i make this big issue out of it.) 



Okay coming to the texture of cream. It is, what company rightfully claims, very rich and luxurious. The kind i'd want my shower gel to look like... soft, creamish even for a cream. The coloue is so pure white, that for an instant i forgot the smell and started liking this beauty again :) ... But only till i applied it.




Now, on my fingers itself i figured out that its way too oily. So i took a small amount and applied all over my face. In less than an instant, my face looked like an oil tank... I blotted some of it and carried on with my chores. After 2 hours or so when i checked, my face was looking god-awful... so oily that i was looking atleast 2 shades darker ... So much for the brightening claims :x

BEFORE BLENDING



AFTER BLENDING



I know my veins look prominent and all . . . but you are supposed to concentrate on the product . . so oily eeeeks :( :( . . .can you see the difference between my hand and arms... !!! 

I still did not give up on it, and decided to give it some more time...I used this product for 7 days, and my skin started looking even darker and oilier . . .and worst thing...it broke me out :( ... yes so many zits on my cheeks . . .i stopped using it altogether. 

The big heart that i have , decided to give it a try one more time.... and it showed its colours on the very second day, invited zits all over again . . and i had to ditch him it. And the bottle is lying with me ever-since, not even 1/10 finished :( :( ... 

I am contemplating whether to use it as foot/ body cream or ehmmmm give it one more try in winters . . .since almost everyone has so many good things to say about it . . i am greedy i know :( 


THUMBs UP:

  • ummm . .ehmmm . . .ahhh . . looks good . . .can this count ??
  • Might suit dry skinned


BOOs : 

  • Very greasy and oily
  • Broke me out
  • Smile not pleasant 


Beautymeter : 2/10 

 Have you tried it ??? How was your experience ???

  1. I have this and just about managed to finish it though I couldn't stand it one bit. Many years back, a friend said this helped her during her wedding. i don't know how!! It does not make me fair! it's so greasy and i just can't stand the smell. lol@ the confusion between the two green bottles. i have the same problem with three green bottles, i keep wanting to use one and take the other and throw it back in and it goes on!!! loved your writing and review :) I am always on the look out for 'whitening' my skin, there i said it :PP

    1. oh and use it on your elbows and feet if they are really dry. and remove it in an hour if you don't want to slip. I am managing to finish the rest of my stash in that way.

  17. for the oiliness people, just take a pinch of cream on your palm and add 3-4 drops of water and mix it well, till it starts looking a little watery and then apply it on your face. there would not be any greasiness. i just bought the cream 3 days ago and its working alright with me this way. by the way i have a super ioly skin too.
