Packaging, Texture and Fragrance
The packaging is a cute green, white plastic tub. The tub is thick enough to sustain accidentally dropping the jar. The jar has an inner lid to prevent leaking of the product. The texture of the product is creamy with more of watery content. After looking at the texture I thought it will get absorbed easily by the skin, although it is the other way round. 
The texture of the cream isn't sticky or oily. The fragrance of the product is that of bio winter green. It does smell like a pain relief balm which we use for body pain or back pain. Although it is not that strong fragrance.

My experience
As mentioned earlier, I bought this to treat my cystic acne. I used this product as mentioned as a spot treatment, in the morning and evening on clean skin. I initially thought it would reduce the size of the bump of my cystic acne in 2-3 days. Although it didn't show any effect on the redness or size of the bump at all even after 5 days.

I then tried applying a thick layer on the affected area so as to improve the efficiency of the product. To my dismay the product just sits on the skin when applied in excess. The product doesn't tingle or cause any irritation to the cystic acne. Initially after sniffing the product I thought it would irritate the skin although it didn't. Keeping in mind the spot application of the product, the product lasts long time. I am yet to finish even half of it.

I have used this product for straight 21 days and I can't just say that this helps in reducing the acne or the blemishes. I mean the amount of time I have tested it is 21 days. Now in this time period the acne would heal itself without any external help or application. So am unsure whether the product helped the acne heal or the acne itself healed on it's own.

The product has a weird fragrance due to the bio winter green which is like a balm. Thankfully the product doesn't have strong fragrance and however is the fragrance, it's non lingering. The product doesn't prevent any new breakouts, since we use it as a spot treatment. So we need to keep on using the product regularly to treat the new ones.

The only good thing about the Biotique Bio Winter Green Spot Correcting Anti-Acne Cream is that it soothes the irritated acne and calms it down so that we don't scratch it. Also the product isn't sticky or oily in texture so it doesn't add to the greasiness of the oily acne prone skin.

Otherwise I am absolutely disappointed with how the product has not worked for me.

The product claims to be free from preservatives and has base mentioned in the ingredients list. I don't know why Biotique doesn't mention full ingredients list. And considering the consistency of the product, I think it does contain water, and any product with water will need preservative. 

Price, Shelf life and Availability - 199 INR for 15 gms with a use before date of 3 years from date of manufacturing. Available easily in stores and online.

Biotique Bio Winter Green Spot Correcting Anti-Acne Cream Review

The product claims to clear up blemishes and promote poreless skin. The product however didn't work for my cystic acne as a spot correction nor did it change the mark left behind by the acne. The product is fortified by bio winter green and smells like a balm. The only good thing about this spot correcting anti acne cream is that it soothes the painful bumps of acne. Other than that I would not recommend this product for oily acne prone skin beauties.
