I could not be more excited to team up with one of my absolute favorite skincare brands, Biossance! If you’re a long time reader, you know how much I love Biossance… this is my first time partnering with them, which is a huge honor. As background, Biossance is an incredible clean brand. Their products are formulated without parabens, synthetic fragrances and over 2,000 ingredients that are potentially toxic or questionable, ensuring only the highest standards for skincare that is clean, safe, sustainable and effective. All Biossance products are proudly vegan, cruelty-free, and EWG-verified.
Their power ingredient is Squalane. 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 and phyto-retinol so much; the products are ultra effective without drying out your skin. Biossance uses a special squalane. You may know that squalane is traditionally harvested from shark livers (yikes), but Biossance’s squalane is actually 100% plant-based – sustainably derived from sugarcane!
This year’s Black Friday promotion is 30% off all products sitewide, making it Biossance’s BIGGEST discount offer ever. This is BIG!
I have a lot of favorites to talk about. I don’t want this to get toooooo long, but below are my personal Biossance favs! Also if you search Biossance in the search bar, even more reviews will pop up.
My Biossance Favorites!
This is hands down, my favorite Biossance product. If you buy one thing from the sale, I would say to make it this. It’s my favorite acid, and what I love is that it delivers smoother, glowy skin in literally ONE NIGHT. What makes it special and different from other acids on the market is that it also contains that squalane, which allows for powerful exfoliation and smoothing without drying out the skin. You will notice a massive difference the next day. I make sure to use it 2-3x a week.
This is hands down, my favorite plant-based retinol alternative. I have talked about it several times here on the blog but it contains Bakuchiol and niacinamide (another fav ingredient to target fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage.. visibly fighting the signs of aging without any irritation. I like to use this 2-3x a week and the lactic acid 2-3x a week.
I am not someone who gets super excited about cleanser. It’s on your face for so little time, ya know? BUT this is a good one and it’s a nice price too (only $28). It takes all my makeup off without stripping the skin so there is no tightness afterward. I also love the texture!
This is an ultra rich, luxurious moisturizer. The perfect antidote for dry, winter skin. I like to use it over the lactic acid serum or phyto-retinol serum (let either one sink in for 15-20 minutes) for MAX hydration.
This is one of my favorite eye creams. I’ve talked about it in several blog posts now, but what I love about it is how hydrating it is, and that it delivers a lifted look, almost immediately. It’s an Allure Best of Beauty winner for good reason!
I featured Biossance’s Let it Glow set in my Under $25 gift guide and it’s such an amazing value ($63 in product, for only $25!). It has travel sizes of both the Vitamin C Oil and the Lactic Acid serum and is such a great price.
And I’m really excited to tell you about a special bundle I created with Biossance! This is NOT a part of their Black Friday sale but the savings is incredible. My set includes full size versions of the lactic acid serum and marine algae eye cream, AND a travel size version of their amazing Phyto-Retinol Serum.
What I like about my bundle is that it’s perfect for someone who is dipping their toe into the world of anti-aging. It’s perfect for someone just starting to use an eye cream, acids, and retinols (which in my opinion, besides SPF) are the three things you really need to build out an anti-aging routine.
Ordinarily the three together would retail for $145, but my set is $94… a 35% savings!
