Hey friends! I wanted to start up a little weekly segment where I share some of my favourite products every Tuesday! To start off I thought I’d share one of my all time favourite face products: Biossance Squalene + Vitamin C Rose Oil!
My skin is combination but way more on the dry side, so I absolutely love this stuff. I put it on right before bed and let it absorb overnight. I have to say, for the first few days I was using it rubbing oil all over my face felt just plain wrong, but this product really does work wonders (and you only have to use a few drops!).
The product itself is mostly meant to brighten and firm, which it certainly does well. My skin looks WAY more radiant and fresh ever since I started using it. HOWEVER, the part I love the most is the squalene. I’m no scientist, but from what I understand squalene is something your body produces naturally, as a barrier to protect your skin from dirt and pollutants. However, you produce less and less of it as you get older. While at 22, I no longer seem to get the same type of hormone-related skin issues I did in high school, I still occasionally struggled with breakouts — until I tried this. Even at such a young age, the protective barrier against my skin was clearly starting to fade away and I swear I felt the effect of this product immediately.
On the whole, I gotta say I really love this product. 5/5 stars, will probably purchase it until the end of time, so it seemed fitting for my first Tuesday Favourites! Hope you guys liked this review, check back next week for my next review!
As long as I use it regularly, I swear I never get zits anymore. It’s THAT good. While I was hesitant to buy it, as it is pretty expensive (it’s $90 at Sephora), I’ve had it for months and still have most of the bottle left. Furthermore, the line carries other squalene-based products that are cheaper, or may be better suited to other skin types.
