Biossance Squalane and Phyto Retinol Serum 30ml

Melding leading scientific research with a staunch commitment to sustainable practices, Biossance is leading skin care into a new age: one that prioritises product efficacy without compromising the environment. From their vegan and cruelty-free status to the ethically and sustainably sourced squalane in every product, this line is setting out to change the beauty industry and your skin for the better.

Powered by bakuchiol - a plant-derived retinol alternative - the Squalane + Phyto-Retinol Serum is an age-defying essential: diminishing visible lines and wrinkles while encouraging elasticity and smoothing your skin for a velveteen finish.

Doing everything we adore about retinol and dropping everything we don’t (we’re talking facial flaking, reddened irritation and sun sensitivity), this creamy serum smooths the look of lines and wrinkles while stimulating collagen production for a visibly plump and firm complexion. At the heart of the formula, the plant-derived retinol alternative - bakuchiol - boosts your natural collagen, visibly smooths, reduces pigmentation and enhances the elasticity and firmness of your skin. This nourishing blend also calls upon 100% plant-derived squalane to deliver and retain essential moisture, niacinamide to restore the skin barrier and fight water loss while improving the tone of your skin, plus hyaluronic acid to grant a moisturising veil of lasting moisture.

Massage 1-2 pumps onto clean face and neck, morning and night.

Amazing!

I absolutely love this! My skin is combination and it's hard to find something that works. I also have hormonal acne and everytime it appears I use this and it just heals overnight so much faster!( I've noticed it helps with the inflamation so the next day it isn't as red and the 'pimples' shrink a lot). It's one of my favourite products ever! The only downside is the bottle. The pump doesn't work properly but I found that shaking it sideways and then pressing the pump helps. I got to the end of it and didn't need to open the bottle.

Great serum, shame about packaging

The serum was amazing, visible difference that was commented on by others but after a few days, the pump stopped and then towards the end it was impossible to get the last bits out. Will buy it again when the packaging changes.

My second bottle

Love this serum, after 2 weeks of use can see the difference in the skin tone, skin became brighter and more even. The minor mimic wrinkles even out, it is not that I have a lot, but still could see the difference). Love the smell of the product, the design, and the that a bottle is made from dark glass. And love the other products from this brand.

Bad presentation - waste of money

I have been using this serum for a month and the product is good but I am afraid I will not purchase it anymore. I can see that there is some product at the bottom of the container and the pump is not able to take it out. I have to open it in order to apply the serum on my face and I can see I won’t be able to finish it which means I will have to purchase another serum while I still having this one. Money wasted.

Fix it!

I am going to go on a rant about this product. The serum itself is amazing, I am convinced that since I started using it, my old acne marks have improved lots. The texture is light and hydrates the skin, BUT the packaging is awful! The pump broke halfway through the bottle and now, I have to literally open the bottle and bang on the end of it to get the product out. Biossance, please fix the issue. Looks like a lot of people have complained about the packaging which is a shame since people are paying an arm and a leg for this serum. I am sure you can afford a better pump for this, don’t try to reduce your cost of goods by using a pump that cannot even last 3 months. Sincerely yours, An angry customer with good skin

Not impressed

The texture & smell is quite nice, but it doesn’t do much for my skin. For the price point, you expect it to work wonders. I would say this is more of a moisturizer than a serum. And the pump stop working after some times - not impressed at all!

packaging

I was going to leave a positve review but boom after one month of use (at first once a week now 2-3 times depending on how my skin feels) the pump doesn't work and I have to open the bottle... Definitely not the kind of experience one awaits from a £61.00 product. Be warned!

Transformed my skin

Wow, I’m quite surprised that some people are disappointed with this, so I suppose it doesn’t work as amazingly well for some people as it does for me. On my skin the effect closely mimics that one of retinol – maybe not the full-strength one, but still. My skin is a)smoother with less texture b)brighter c)plumper d)more hydrated e)possibly less congested. Overall my skin looks as if I’m using a good retinol. I did have more pronounced results when I was using a strong retinol for a month but outside of that I don’t think I’ve seen such results with any other skincare product, and that includes vitamin C serums. I only use it at night. The bottle is made from glass (phew!), the pump is problematic, but that’s only because the consistency of the serum is thick, more like a light cream or thick lotion, so it tends to clog the pump. A piece of advice: shake the bottle very vigorously when the pump gets clogged – it’s seems to help. I don’t like to comment on scents in products because I think it’s extremely subjective. With this serum I don’t think I even notice the scent but again that’s my personal experience. Overall if you are already using a strong retinol formulation then I don’t think you’ll see any improvements by switching to this. But if not I’d give this a go keeping in mind that some adverse reactions that some reviewers described here are possible.

Good ingredients but could cause breakouts

I don't know how to rate this serum as I have experienced both bad and good results - hence the standard 3 stars. When I first started using this I broke out heavily on my jawline and nose (where I occasionally get spots). This kept happening for a month or two, but I stuck with it as I convinced myself this was purging. Not sure if this was actually true, but I am glad I kept with it. Once the breakouts had stopped, my skin looked and felt great. I am not sure about reducing fine lines as I don't really have any, but I will be repurchasing for the other great ingredients (squalane and niacinamide) on top of bakuchiol. Oh and the packaging: I am about 2/3 through the bottle and am just starting to struggle to get it out with the pump. Overall, the serum feels nice on the skin and seems to brighten it a bit, but be weary of breakouts and irritation.

Love!

I’m on my second bottle and am in love. Took a while for the results to show, but after three weeks there was a noticeable difference in my skin. Love how quick this absorbs and how gentle it’s been on my skin (I have SUPER sensitive and acne prone skin).Knocked a star off because the pump can get a bit annoying towards the end.
