If giving gifts is your love language, giving the gift of skincare is one of my ultimate go-to gift suggestions this Christmas season. Since I first discovered Biossance for myself earlier this year, they’ve quickly become the primary skincare products that I use both in my morning and evening skincare routines. Out of all of the products I’ve tried (including several from their sample kits which are such a great way to try out the products to see what works best for you before you buy) I’ve narrowed this gift guide down to what I consider to be my absolute essentials.
Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream // Sustainable Skincare Spatula // Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer // Squalane + Hyaluronic Toning Mist // Squalane + Caffeine Toning Body Cream
Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream
While I use the eye gel from Biossance as well when I want to double up on my eye cream, I use the Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream both in the morning and in the evening. It’s one of the most important products in my skincare routine for keeping both the dark under-eye circles and the puffiness at bay. If there is just one product to splurge on from Biossance, this Eye Cream is my #1 suggestion.
Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer
If you’re sensing that I tend to go with gels over creams, you’d be correct. I always opt to go with a gel-based product for the skincare products I use on my face. I’ve found that it reacts and absorbs better when I use a gel-based product over a cream.
Besides the fact that this moisturizer had my skin feeling dewy from the time I woke in the morning until it was time to start my skincare routine again the next night, I love that you can get this moisturizer in a travel size before you make the leap to try the full-size product. Now that I’ve been using it for a month, I’m definitely ready for the full-size product because I’m absolutely obsessed!
Squalane + Hyaluronic Acid Toning Mist
If you’ve been on a skincare journey for a while now, you’re already well aware of the necessity of using toner as part of your skincare routine. It’s essential to prep your skin before you apply the rest of your skincare routine, and toner helps all of your other skincare products absorb better. While you can just add a few drops to the palm of your hand and gently tap it into your skin, I tend to use a cotton pad to gently tap it in. Plus this toner visibly reduces the size of pores. I was absolutely shocked the first time I used it!
Squalane + Caffeine Toning Body Cream (Unscented)
The toning body cream was one of the first products I ever tried from Biossance, and it was also my mom’s first introduction to the brand… (It’s so much fun when you have someone you can share your love of skincare with!) I apply this toning body cream after my shower every evening, so you could say it’s the first step of my evening skincare routine. The Caffeine is sourced from green coffee beans and gives your skin a more smooth, even texture while visibly tightening. Niacinamide helps protect the skin’s moisture barrier and Squalane moisturizes and soothes your skin on contact.
