What An Incredible Value Skincare Set!



Skincare starter kits are my absolute favourite especially when I am unfamiliar with a brand. I am very familiar with Biotherm products for which I have a renewed interest after a bit of a hiatus. I was at their Robinson’s counter after my Aquasource Deep Serum Express Facial browsing when I spotted these starter kits. At first, I th0ught they were GWPs but when I asked the consultant, she said they were starter kits for sale.

So there are 4 starter kits altogether, all come in pouches of various colours. My favourite shade is the green (top left above). 3 of the kits contain a 20ml Aquasource Nuit (RM165/50ml) which is a generous size!

I wanted all of them. When you find out the price, you will know why. I walk the talk here. I can’t be raving about these sets and the price and not get one for myself, can I (despite having literally a mountain of skincare yet to be tested!)? I was vacillating terribly between the Deep Hydration and Skin Perfection set and finally decided on the latter because it’s the better value of the 2 – Skin Perfection cleanser, lotion and moisturizer are more expensive than the other range.


All this for just RM40. Unbelievable? I wouldn’t even have known about these starter kits if I hadn’t been nose-ing around the counter. If this isn’t incredible value, I don’t know what else is these days.


  1. this is unbelievably cheap. do they limit the quantity each customer could buy? if it is not, this is definitely a good deal. buy 3 sets for the price of rm120 and it is equivalent to whole set of full-sized products. WOOT!

    • No limit at all. You can buy whatever they have at the counter. Yeah I know, the price is unbelievable. I might just go back & grab the other 2 hydration sets.

    • the beauty advisor said that the newest starter kit doesn’t come with the Aquasource Nuit. I showed her your blog and she said this is from 2 batches ago, old stock. 🙁

    • So the ones you saw don’t have the pouches like what you see in my post? Mine don’t have any manufacturing date. Maybe there are different sets at different counters.

    • yep. different pouches. only the purefect set range available. and the pouch is in green in colour. perhaps you are right. different sets at different counters.

    • My friend went to Jusco Queensbay yesterday and saw the same sets (as in my post) displayed in front of the counter. I presume you went to the Parkson Gurney counter? Okay, I just checked with Biotherm HO – the one I bought is indeed from Dec 2012 (not that old la) and the current kits have bigger sixe products like 50ml cleanser/125ml toner/50ml gel. It ranges from skin care, men’s care to body care as well. Personally, I think the older starter kit is better in terms of value and variety!

  2. I just went to the Biotherm counter and bought the RM40-00 Purefect Starter Set. When I was at the counter, I was told that there are 2 other Biotherm Purefect sets available for RM162-00 and RM224-00 respectively. I tried out the Purefect samples last week and discovered that the Purefect range is perfect for my oily skin!
