Biotique Botanicals Bio Cucumber Pore Tightening Freshener Review


Hope you have planned a great weekend unlike me. I have to visit my maternal uncle who happens to be the person who gives loads and loads and loads of advises. BORING.!

Okay let me stop the story of my weekend getting slaughtered and proceed with today’s post. It’s a review of a toner which I have been using for a while.

I realized the importance of toners recently when I bought one after all skin care guru’s advised and stressed on the use of toners in the daily skin care regime. My first toner was from Aroma Magic which was good and this one is my second toner. Read on to know how it fared on my skin.

Kheera Q.S

What the brand says:

Cucumber is one of nature’s greatest cooling and purifying plants with many health benefits. This refreshing, pore tightening and purifying lotion is blended with cucumber, coriander, nutgalls, berberry, peppermint oil and the fresh waters found in the foothills of Himalayas. It is formulated to bring the complexion into perfect pH balance and help keep the skin in its purest state.

How to Use:

Apply to Cotton Pads or wash cloth and gently wipe over cleansed face and neck, morning and evening.

My Experience:

I love Biotique products. They never break out my otherwise sensitive skin. I got this product with great expectations and it fulfilled them all.

The toner comes in a standard Biotique transparent white bottle with green cap in a carton box. The bottle has a sturdy cap and seems travel friendly.

The product is a runny transparent liquid like most of the toners. 

This product smells divinely of cucumber and mint and gives a cooling sensation to the skin when applied. I apply it after cleansing my face every time with The Body Shop Cotton pads. It does help in minimizing the pores. It has not irritated my skin.

After applying it, immediately my skin feels bit dry and after few seconds  my skin seems okay. Though I have combination skin that gets dry at times during winters, I chose the variant Normal to Oily because I am scared of making my skin secrete more sebum and get pimples if I use the one for dry skin. And I couldn't find the variant designed for combination skin at the store. 

The other change in my skin that I noticed is my complexion seems to get clearer especially around my nose where I usually get blackheads and white heads. Though not immediately obvious, I feel my skin getting better and better.

Okay now summing up its pros and cons.


1.     Does what it Claims. Tightens pores & imparts fresh feeling to the skin.
2.    Makes my skin feel clearer.
3.    Does not irritate the skin.
4.    Smells good unlike its papaya scrub.
5.    Made of 100% percent botanical extracts.
6.    Like all Biotique Products, it is organically Pure & Preservative free.
7.    Biotique does not test on animals.
8.    Price is good.

1.     Feels a bit drying. (This variant is designed for normal to oily so this is not really a con)

Will I repurchase?

Will I Recommend?

Hope you all liked my review.
