Biotique Diamond Facial Kit Review

BY SOMREETA MUKHERJEE

As it is festive season and some amount of self-pampering is absolutely desired, I tried out a couple of facial kits from the Biotique range. I have already reviewed Biotique Gold Facial Kit that I used during the Durga Puja (you can read it here) Recently I tried the diamond kit as Diwali is around and today I would be sharing my experience with Biotique Diamond Facial Kit.

The facial is to be done in 5 steps that include scrubbing with face scrub, a facial massage with a nourishing cream, a revitalizing massage with gel, relaxation with the face mask on and then winding up with the serum.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH BIOTIQUE DIAMOND FACIAL KIT

Diamond Face Scrub:

 The scrub has a gel-like consistency. It has silvery micro granules that glitter. It is extremely mild on the face and needs to be massaged on face for about 5 to 7 minutes. Personally I feel 5 minutes is more than enough.

 

Diamond Detox Lotion:

 This massage cream has a consistency that’s mid-way between a lotion and a cream. It’s thick and soft and ideal for a facial massage. It takes around 6 to 7 minutes to massage the face well with the cream. It gets absorbed well but since I have oily skin, I could notice a thin film of oil that it left even after the cream was absorbed. I wiped it clean with wet sponge once the massage session was over.

 

Diamond Massage Gel:

 Application of gels is perhaps the best part of every facial session- at least I enjoy it the most. Since I have oily skin, prone to blemishes, my skin loves it when gel is applied. It helps soothe the skin and offer a luxury feel. A facial massage with this hydrating gel for 10 minutes helps revitalize the skin.

 

Diamond Wash-Off Face Mask:

 The face mask has a shampoo-like feel to it- shampoos like Sunsilk or Pantene- that pearly white colour and thick consistency. I applied the mask on my face and waited for 10 minutes approximately. Then I washed it off and skin seemed to glow.

 

Diamond Serum:

 It is a light-weight serum that helps hydrate the skin and is a perfect way to end the facial session. Only a tiny bit is needed and one sachet can be used at least 6 to 7 times.

 

BIOTIQUE DIAMOND FACIAL KIT PROS

  • Reasonably priced at Rs 335 for 50g (I got a small pack of Gold bleach free but I didn’t use it)
  • One facial kit can be easily used for 2 sessions
  • Instructions are clearly written and it’s quite easy to follow them- excellent DIY guide
  • The scrub, massage cream, gel, mask and the serum- all are of decent quality as well as quantity
  • Products are organically pure and free from preservatives
  • Imparts glow to skin


BIOTIQUE DIAMOND FACIAL KIT CONS

  • I somehow miss having a cleanser as a part of the kit
  • Storage of excess products can be a problem
  • The glow is short-lived

 

FINAL WORD

Biotique Diamond Facial Kit is a decent product from the house of Biotique. It is great for those who do not have the time to go to the salon and bank on DIY kits for some self-pampering. Rating would be 4 out of 5.
