In the world of clean, sustainable skincare, Biossance has become a household name. With their range of products centered around the powerful ingredient Squalane, it's no wonder they have garnered attention and praise. But are all their products worth investing in? In this honest Biossance review, we'll delve into my experience with eight of their products and separate the hits from the misses.

The Biossance Gentle Cleanser: A Hydrating Delight

One of my personal favorites from the Biossance line is their Gentle Cleanser. Contrary to my expectations of a thick gel-like cleanser, it actually has a light jelly-like consistency that feels incredibly hydrating on the skin. The unusual scent adds to the experience, leaving you feeling refreshed and therapeutic. With the added benefits of an amino acid complex and moringa extract, this cleanser not only removes sunscreen and makeup easily but also soothes and hydrates the skin.

The Biossance Marine Algae Eye Cream: Overpriced and Underwhelming

While Biossance's Marine Algae Eye Cream may sound promising, I found it to be overpriced for what it offers. Priced at $54, it felt more like a glorified moisturizer rather than a specialized eye cream. Although it contains Squalane, Paracress extract, and Pink Marine Algae, it didn't impress me as much as other eye creams on the market. In fact, I found their Eye Gel to be a better option if you're looking for an eye product from Biossance.

The Biossance Rose Oil: A Luxurious Treat, But Is It Worth It?

At $60, the Biossance Rose Oil may seem a bit pricey for what it contains. With just Squalane, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, and Rosa Damascena Flower Extract, you can find similar Vitamin C oils at a more affordable price. However, if you love the lightweight consistency of squalane and the added benefits of shelf-stable and oil-soluble Vitamin C, this face oil might still appeal to you. It's a simple yet thoughtfully formulated product, perfect for those new to using face oils.

The Biossance Last Acid Resurfacing Night Serum: Not So Effective

Unfortunately, the Biossance Last Acid Resurfacing Night Serum missed the mark for me. While it contains 10% vegan lactic acid for exfoliation and resurfacing, it lacks other active ingredients that truly make a difference for your skin. If you're looking for resurfacing results, opting for a serum with lactic acid instead of a cream would be a wiser choice. Overall, this particular product from Biossance doesn't offer much in terms of effectiveness.

The Biossance Omega Repair Cream: Rich and Silky, But Overpriced

The Biossance Omega Repair Cream is a rich and silky smooth cream that absorbs rapidly into the skin. Although it contains ceramides, fatty acids, and hyaluronic acid, there's nothing particularly unique about this cream beyond its texture. Priced at nearly $60, I believe it's overpriced for what it offers. There are several other affordable clean moisturizers on the market that provide similar results at a fraction of the cost.

The Biossance Lip Balm: A Luxurious and Nourishing Treat

On a more positive note, I absolutely love the Biossance Lip Balm. Its luxuriously rich and petroleum jelly-like texture provides deep nourishment without the use of petroleum. With a vegan formula that includes ceramides, hyaluronic acid, sugarcane-derived squalane, Rose wax, and Wakame algae, this lip balm feels more like a treatment than a casual balm. Plus, it's reasonably priced at just $14.

The Biossance Vitamin C Dark Spot Serum: Brightening, But Not for Deep Dark Spots

The Biossance Vitamin C Dark Spot Serum is a product that I liked, though its effectiveness on dark spots may be limited. With 10% Vitamin C and white shiitake mushroom extract, it primarily functions as an antioxidant serum rather than a dark spot corrector. While it may help with newly formed dark spots from recent sun damage, it may not have a significant impact on deep, long-standing dark spots. For those, more invasive treatments like peels or lasers may be necessary.

Is Biossance Squalane Oil Worth It?

Biossance offers a 100% squalane oil derived from sustainable sugarcane. While it claims to be purer, vegan, more ethical, and more effective than other forms of squalane, the truth is that simpler squalane oils from cheaper brands can offer similar benefits. Squalane instantly hydrates, helps other active ingredients penetrate deeply, and promotes healthier-looking skin. Unless you're a squalane oil aficionado, there's no need to splurge on this single-ingredient product from a fancy line when more affordable options are readily available.

In conclusion, Biossance offers a range of clean and sustainable skincare products, but not all of them live up to the hype. From the hits like the Gentle Cleanser and lip balm to the misses such as the Marine Algae Eye Cream and Last Acid Resurfacing Night Serum, it's important to choose wisely based on your individual needs and preferences. With so many options available in the market, it's worth exploring and finding the skincare products that truly work wonders for your skin.
