Very very good skin care news – Biossance’s Friends & Family Sale is going strong! If you have read here a while, you probably know this, but Biossance is my favorite skincare brand. Everything they make is incredibly high-tech while also being vegan, cruelty-free, and EWG-verified. I LOVE their products. You can read more about their mission here but I am such a massive fan of this brand.

First of all, I always like to highlight Biossance’s key ingredient… it’s in all of their products: SQUALANE.
Biossance’s squalane is one of the things that a) makes their products so effective but b) makes me love them even more as a brand… they are a really good company, doing great things for the planet. The body produces its own version (known as squalene). But as we age, our body’s ability to produce and retain squalene decreases. Squalane is traditionally harvested from shark livers (awful!) which has a devastating impact on the environment.
Biossance has found a way to derive their 100% plant-based squalane sustainably, from sugarcane. Squalane is in all of their products, and it is a weightless oil that instantly locks in moisture. That’s one of the reasons I love their lactic acid so much; the products are ultra-effective without drying out your skin.
Let’s talk Biossance favorites.
First and foremost, I LOVE THE LACTIC ACID. If you have followed me for any length of time, you have probably heard me rave about Biossance’s Squalane + Lactic Acid Resurfacing Night Serum. This is a wonder product. In just one use your skin will be smoother and brighter. I still remember the first time I tried this product. I couldn’t believe how much smoother my skin was the next day, after just one use. It’s powerful – 10% lactic acid… but as I mentioned above, the squalane lets it exfoliate the skin without drying you out.
This brand does such a good job with serums. Besides the lactic acid I love the Squalane + Vitamin C Dark Spot Serum. This is a great daytime Vitamin C serum. It is incredible for brightening the skin (and fading dark spots – I make sure to use this on my chest, where I have some sun damage).
Also on the serums front: the Squalane + Copper Peptide Rapid Plumping Serum. This is a fabulous moisturizing serum. I use this after toning, before any other serums (I love that you can layer it with your other serums!!!). It plumps and firms and hydrates deeply. Because of the plumping benefits, fine lines are reduced in appearance. I use this almost every morning, before Vitamin C! There is a longer review of this serum right this way.
I also LOVE Biossance’s Squalane + BHA Pore-Minimizing Toner. This is great because it has BHAs to gently exfoliate. So you get that little tingle (and it tightens up pores, minimizing their appearance) but thanks to the Squalane (again: power ingredient!!) it will not dry you out. I love this toner. Toner is the final step of the cleansing process: after cleansing, before your serums and creams.
Speaking of creams, there are so many good ones to chat about.
The Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream is one of my favorites. It’s really, really hydrating, which makes it great for dry skin. This one delivers a lifted look, almost immediately… smoothing and firming the under eye area. (It’s an Allure Best of Beauty winner for good reason – those awards are no joke!).
The Squalane + Omega Repair Cream is what I reach for whenever my skin is acting funny or upset (I had a histamine reaction a few months ago and my derm told me I needed to give my skin a break. So it was just a gentle cleanser (this one, also Biossance) and this cream. Worked like a charm, my skin was back to normal in a couple weeks.
I always forget to talk about the Squalane + Caffeine Toning Body Cream (I get so hung up on skincare for the face that I forget about the body) but it’s one of my most re-purchased Biossance products. This body cream is heaven. It’s super creamy and hydrating, it’s got caffeine to firm and tone, and it smells wonderful (highly recommend the light citrus scent.
