Biotherm Blue Therapy Eye Cream Review: Does it Deliver Results?
Biotherm Blue Therapy Eye Cream is intended to provide targeted support to the healthy appearance of the thin skin around your eyes, which is a frequent location of the signs of aging. It is intended to be applied to this area and nourish the cells and tissues there, and is sold through several retail outlets, as well as direct from the manufacturer. It is sold in 15mL pots, which are sold by the manufacturer at $60 each, although we were able to find prices as low as $38.95 on online retail outlets.
The full list of the ingredients in Biotherm Blue Therapy Eye Cream isn’t disclosed on their website, nor are the purposes of the ingredients that they do highlight discussed in any detail. The core appeal are a range of algaes and plankton – the proprietary names the makers use are “Blue Micro-Algae, “Golden Macro-Algae,” and “Pure Thermal Plankton.” It is not clear how these are expected to help your skin tissues, and no clinical evidence is provided to back up their claims.
Wash and dry your face, and then apply the product – the makers suggest a three step process where you rub and roll it into wrinkled skin to smooth it, then pinch dark-colored areas to encourage blood flow, and finally finish with a circular motion.
- No side effects have been reported.
- The product’s primary ingredients as described come from natural sources
- We don’t have exact information on the ingredients in the product, making it hard to judge whether or not it might be allergenic or irritating to sensitive skin.
- No clinical evidence is provided to support the claims about how well the product functions.
- The price is definitely on the high side
Biotherm Blue Therapy Eye Cream has an attractive website and seems to be sold in a range of retail outlets, but it does not offer a lot of substance to go with their product. The details of what’s in it remain opaque, and there is no clinical information cited to support any claims that it is particularly positive for treating the appearance of aging or other signs of ill health in your skin. While nothing in the material provided seems to be particularly risky, the price is still very high for a small pot of what could be no more than a simple moisturizer. You may want to investigate for other products – there are beauty treatments and eye creams for every price range, and the most expensive aren’t always the best.
Below you’ll find some of the most effective eye cream formulations on the market today, in our opinion.

Also Remember These Dermatologist Recommended Important Tips:
- Age has nothing to do with the lines that appear on the corners of your eyes... it's a combination of heredity and careless abuse of the area.
- Skin is skin... it all needs to be cared for in one way or another. For my younger readers, this means not pulling on the skin when removing eye makeup.
- The eye area is prone to fine lines and wrinkles, so it is really important not over-work the area, squint, and stay away from smokey rooms. Your eyes won't like that either.
- One of the best ways to protect this area of your face is to put on a pair of sunglasses every single time you go outside spring, summer, fall and winter.
- There are very few oil glands in the eye area, so it can dry out very quickly, especially if you spend a great deal of time out of doors.
- When you chose an eye cream, be sure to choose one that is especially formulated for this delicate skin. Don't use a day cream that could be full of ingredients that will irritate this area. Too rich a cream can cause as many problems as ignoring the area.
