THE BENEFITS OF BIOTHERM LIFE PLANKTON SENSITIVE BALM
The Jar: One of the most unique aspects of Life Plankton Sensitive Balm is the jar it’s housed in. The formula is sealed in a groundbreaking airless jar to safeguard its formula. The hermetic pack brings the benefits of anti-oxidation, anti-contamination (your fingers never dip into the jar), and a long-term preserved efficacy of the concentrated formula. What’s more? The airless jar’s precision release mechanism ensures that the exact amount of Life Plankton Sensitive Balm is dispensed each time.
The Texture: Life Plankton Sensitive Balm boasts an innovative balmy texture inspired by the characteristics of cica products. This rich texture helps ensure long-term relief of key winter skin concerns, including dryness.
The Formula: As if the airless jar packaging and rich texture weren’t unique enough, the formula sticks out amongst others in the brand portfolio thank to its high concentration of Life Plankton, a special micro-organism known for its special regenerative properties. The formula can instantly soothe even the driest of sensitive skin and help skin feel perfectly nourished—comfortably suppler with a visibly radiant look—day after day. With continued use over four weeks, expect to see all signs of skin sensitivity significantly reduced.
BIOTHERM LIFE PLANKTON SENSITIVE BALM REVIEW
The first thing I noticed about Biotherm’s Life Plankton Sensitive Balm is its extremely innovative packaging. This cream doesn’t operate like your average moisturizer, as it is housed in an airless glass jar to help preserve its precious formula. How does that work exactly? Once you remove the cap you won’t see the top of the formula as you typically would. Instead, you’ll find that there is a horizontal membrane that you have to unlock with the pressures of your index finger. I’ve never seen anything like it before. Following the instructions, a small amount of cica-like balm came out from underneath an invisible slit, ensuring I got just the right amount to apply to my face.
I applied a thin layer of balm all over my face and immediately felt the difference in texture. Massaging the balm in circular motions on my face, I noticed how it didn’t take much for the product to fully absorb. My skin felt extremely comfortable and soothed, and soft to the touch. I look forward to using it for to the next four weeks to reap additional benefits as well.
HOW TO USE BIOTHERM LIFE PLANKTON SENSITIVE BALM
Start by opening the cap to the jar, being sure to leave the membrane in place. To release the balm, gently press and slide the flexible membrane to release one dose. There’s a blue drop symbol on the membrane that indicates where the invisible slit is. Apply one dose to the full face in a thin layer using gentle circular massaging movements. For areas that are exceptionally dry, push again for an extra dose. Leave the balm on for up to one minute to allow it to fully absorb. If any lingering residue remains, spread it from the inside towards the outside of your face.
