We’re now a third of the way through the 12 Days of Gifting, doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun. Today’s post is all about luxurious skincare that won’t break the bank. The lovely people from Bio-Essence asked if I would like to try a couple of bits and I thought they would be perfect to include as a gift idea.
The two products I chose were both for the night time, an area I think we all forget. I will almost always remember to cleanse my face of a morning, but come the night time? I’m just too tired to take too much notice. Luckily, these two have somewhat changed my routine. The Bio-Essence 24k range is specifically marketed as anti ageing, radiance and firming. As my two are night products they aim to help this over the night time. Now, I know I am only 18 and ‘anti ageing’ products might seem a little premature, however it’s never to early to take preventative measures and it’s overnight so it’s not too much of an extra step.
The 24k Bio Gold Skin Radiance Night Cleanser* is luxurious, it removes all of the ick left on your face from a long day. Better still, as a long term sufferer of dry skin this doesn’t seem to exacerbate the situation. Some cleansers feel like they completely suck out any leftover moisture from my skin but this doesn’t have the same effect. The cleanser itself is actually gold in colour, which is rather extra, but as it’s Christmas I think we can allow it. To be honest it looks a lot like honey. The scent is also really gentle, nothing that will stop you wanting to use it like some other products.
Now the 24k Bio Gold Night Cream* is the real stunner of the show. It comes with a small spatula so you don’t have to dip your fingers into the pot, (I’m not too fussed about this aspect but some people might be.) It also has a lid under the twistable lid so it doesn’t spill everywhere. This has a similar consistency to Clinique Moisture Surge – it’s not identical, this is thicker but it is along the same principle. I quite like that it is thicker as overnight your skin isn’t getting much moisture and I can layer it on and let it sink in. Now the reason this is the stunner is because of the look of the cream: IT HAS ACTUAL GOLD FLAKES IN IT! Again, very extra but very pretty also.
Perfect Gift For: Skincare Obsessive
So far I am quite in love with this duo, it’s also relatively affordable. Bio-Essence is available at Superdrug and the products range from £6.99 to £29.99 but there are often deals available – at the moment there is 1/3 off. I’ve got my eye on the Miracle Finisher and Gold Water next! Don’t forget to check out the other 12 Days of Gifting, there’s a giveaway worth £90 and a few other gift ideas you might want to look over.
