This was the other Biotherm Homme T-Pur product I’ve been using recently, I have it on now as a matter of fact. This bizarrely packaged moisturiser is a powerfully hydrating moisturiser that reduces oil, shine and sweat.
Similarly to the Biotherm Homme T-Pur SOS Corrective, one of the functions of Biotherm Homme T-Pur Anti-Oil and Wet is as a facial antiperspirant, helping to reduce facial sweat throughout the day which can build up and add to the overall shine.
In this lightweight gel, you’ll find seaweed that conditions the skin helps to break apart the excess surface oil; zinc works as an antimicrobial agent helping to kill spot-causing bacteria on the surface; finally volcanic rock works as a natural but powerful antiperspirant.
Now one of the mattifying agents in here is Silica, or silicone, which is effective as a mattifying and smoothing ingredient but at the same time has sensitivity ‘question marks’ surrounding it; however in my opinion, it’s nothing to be that worried about and almost every brand uses it one way or another.
The problem with most products designed to treat oilier skin types is that they can often be very drying and dehydrating, leaving skin feeling tight and pulled. Biotherm Homme T-Pur Anti-Oil and Wet is definitely an exception to this as it really, really hydrates. When I’m being especially lazy and I’ve just thrown on my moisturiser with nothing else, this does a great job, even on my eyes (not recommended in most cases; do as I say and not as I do!).
One pump is all that’s needed and it sinks in with no hesitation whatsoever. There’s no residue left on the skin, either sticky or powdery; nothing! I joke about the packaging but it is easy in the hand and stands up well in the bathroom.
For the ultimate Anti-Oil and Wet experience, use this with the facial wash and exfoliating toner which you can read all about here in my review from April 2012. You can normally pick this up for £27 but at the moment you can grab it for just £24.30 at Feel Unique with free delivery.
