Biossance Free Sample
Who doesn't love free samples... okay so this wasn't technically free, it was $1 but close enough...
My aunt is a subscriber to the beauty subscription Glossybox($21 per month), and this month she received a full sized bottle of Biossance's The Revitalizer in her box. She did a little digging and found out the it retails about $58 for a 1.7 fl. oz. And being as awesome and resourceful as she is she found a free sample so I could try it too!
So of course I had to order the free sample! Normally the sample runs for about $10 but currently they are having a special where you only pay $1 for shipping. YAY! Shipping was pretty fast surprisingly, I received my package within 2 days after my payment was processed.
Description from Biossance themselves: The Revitalizer- A daily head to toe, weightless universal cncentrate that instantly moisturizes the face, neck, and body. This universal concentrate is ideal for all skin types and leaves skin feeling nourished and noticeably revitalized.
Directions: Apply liberally to face, neck and body morning and night; not exactly the easiest with a small sample bottle, but hey that's why they give you samples.. so you buy the big stuff. According to research done by the company 95% of women found their skin instantly felt hydrated and 95% of women found their skin to be softer and smoother after 1 week. Personally I found very similar results in the short time I used it.
The reason for the skin softness is the main ingredient Squalane. First time I have ever heard of that ingredient to be quite honest. According to Biossance its "100% plant derived Squalane is desigened with your own biological fingerprint in mind." Still... What the heck is Squalane??? According to About.com Squalane is naturally found in your own body as well as sharks and plants. I guess it is used in many beauty products that add moisture and has alot of health benefits. The only thing that concerned me was the fact that many companies get it from shark livers which one is pretty inhumane/ pretty unsustainable and two really gross to me... luckily Biossance prides itself on being health conscious and earth conscious as well. Their promise to the world states:
"We stand for No Compromise™.
At Biossance, we commit to making effective products that restore your biological beauty and omit ingredients that are harmful to you or the planet."
I'm pretty impressed to say the least, not only with the background of the company but also with how much I liked the oil. I'm so Impressed I might actually shell out the $60 for it! Aka ask my amazing Fiance to buy it ;)
