Biossance Squalane + Copper Peptide Rapid Plumping Serum Review
I am so excited about today’s blog post. SO. excited. You know how much I love Biossance, and their newest launch, their Squalane + Copper Peptide Rapid Plumping Serum is incredible. I had the good fortune of receiving a bottle about a month early so that I could properly test it out to write my review and WOW – this is the best new beauty launch I have tried in ages. If you have dry skin, you will absolutely love this product. We are going to talk about what it is, why it works, and how to use it below but first I want to give a little refresher on Biossance just in case you are new!
I like to highlight Biossance’s key ingredient… it’s in this serum and in all of the rest 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 and phyto-retinol so much; the products are ultra-effective without drying out your skin.
ALSO we have a great sale!

What it is:
This is a powerful hydrating serum. You will notice an instant plumping effect and hydration.
Why it works:
Copper peptides help to boost collagen production, and Biossance’s rapid plumping complex (including my FAV hyaluronic acid, Biossance’s proprietary squalane, and polyglutamic acid). It draws in moisture while flooding the skin with continuous hydration. Skin is left bouncy and plump!
How to use it:
This should be your first step after cleansing and toning (I love Biossance’s Squalane + BHA Toner, by the way!). You can use Biossance’s other serums over it but think of this as your base layer to plump up the skin with an extra shot of moisture. Take one full dropper of the serum and massage it into the skin. I like to use my fingers to really press the serum into the skin.
I will add that if you have dry skin, this pairs really well with Biossance’s Squalane + Omega Repair Cream (a really great rich & creamy moisturizer). The perfect duo for plumped up, ultra hydrated skin!
