Biotique Shopping Spree.

Standard

I got a bunch of products from Biotique for my hair and a undereye cream.

Suffering from bad stress induced hair fall. My fine, thin, silky hair is getting finer, thinner and rough!  I have some undereye fine lines….not very bothered about it. Call me crazy but I kinda think it is cute 😛   Crows feet are a strict no, no though. Thankfully, don’t have any at the moment.

Time for something…..anything! And that is where Biotique comes in.

Hope I come around to reviewing these 🙂


Why Biotique?

1. It is trusted Indian brand in Ayurvedic products. It has been in the Indian market for as long as I can remember.

2. Had used some of its products as a teenager and had satisfactory results.

3. Claims to be “organically pure and preservative free”.

4. No animal testing; a special bonus for all the animal lovers.

5. Cheaper, if you compare with the other  similar products in the market like Shahnaz Hussein, Lush and The Body Shop.

BUT  and a big but here is they claim that their products are good to go for 3 years which I find hard to digest when propped up with claims of being preservative free. How an organic product can last for 3 years sans any preservative is beyond my understanding…..
I mean, take the example of Lush that claims a similar profile. It has a short time period within which the product should be used (usually a month or so or may be 6) and they won’t even deliver some products outside U.K. citing the extremely short shelf life making it unsuitable to be exported outside U.K.
