The Wonderful World of Biossance

[Don’t miss out on my Instagram Stories! Be sure to follow me on Instagram to see the most updated stories. Enjoy my IG Story blog.]

NO COMPROMISE BEAUTY That is what Biossance promises when you buy their products. Formulas that are nontoxic with the highest standards committed to 100% transparency and blacklisting over 2,000 toxic ingredients from their chemist tables. WOW! 

So what have these scientists from Berkeley labs developed since 2003? Innovative biotechnology making positive impacts on the world changing how you do skincare starting with the ingredients. Utilizing a rich history of science and sustainability, Biossance creates skincare that will are incredibly effective and safe for your skincare, the environment, heck even animals!

I had the incredible opportunity to check our Biossance pop up in NOHO with my friend @Juiicyxr. We were not expecting a full class dedicated to skincare and the science behind every ingredient known to the chemist! Of the products we learned about, only three did I decide to take home and test.

OH MY GAWD, MY SKIN FEELS AMAZING

SQUALANE + VITAMIN C ROSE OIL sounds more like a drink than something you put on your face, but this stuff is ridiculous. This ‘No Compromise™’ formula mixes the weightless hydration of our sugarcane-derived, sustainable squalane oil with the brightening power of Vitamin C, plus rose oil! Just a drop or two of this exquisite oil delivers exceptionally soft, smooth and radiantly healthy-looking skin.

I use this for under my makeup moisturizer after having a late night out. It keeps my skin hydrated and plump! Did I also mention it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles? It is clinically proven in test studies to hydrate and provide radiant glowy skin if applied twice daily. This baby deserves a 10/10!

100% SQUALANE  is something I personally have never heard before. Creating from renewable sugarcane, introducing biology’s best kept secret in moisturizer! Hydrating and locking essential oils leaving your skin soft and smooth, it also helps reduce redness and irritation. Shur up! WHAT IS THIS SQUALANE?! 

You may or may not have heard of squalane, but your skin has. The human body produces its own version (known as squalene), but the amount made and retained in the skin decreases over time. Squalane comes from squalene, which can be confusing if you don’t know the difference. Squalene is part of our skin’s own natural moisture but is also found in a variety of plants and in shark liver. Hooked! Where do I buy more? 10/10!

SQUALANE + PHYTO-RETINOL SERUM  sounds intimidating but it really isn’t. We know Squalane now so what is “phyto-retinol?” 

Extracted from the Babchi (Psoralea corylifolia) plant found to have retinol-like effects without the usual skin sensitivity and irritation, phyto-retinol simply means “of retinol-like effects” made from plants. Along with Yeast extract, Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid, and Neroli Essential Oils with scents of orange blossoms this serum is super concentrated and powerfully effective to reduce lines and wrinkles while visibly firming skin without irritation or sensitivity associated with retinol as it’s plant-based.

I highly recommend testing a patch of skin first before applying as this serum is quite potent and powerful. Nonetheless, it has helped with reducing the fine lines around my eyes and reducing my own crow’s feet. 10/10 baby!

These are the three products I tried at Biossance and boy was I pleased! Have you tried them? Have questions or comments? Let me know below and I’ll be sure to respond!

Review Ipsy Glam Bag [April]

[Don’t miss out on my Instagram Stories! Be sure to follow me on Instagram to see the most updated stories. Enjoy my IG Story blog. ]

April is the month of flowers and rain! Where spring showers bring beautiful flowers and tons of pollen that is bound to induce sinus infections, allergies, sneezing, and discomfort. But let’s not fret that it also means a new Ipsy glam bag!

This month’s glam bag brought a product I fell madly for! But before we go into what I loved, let’s list we I got!

In My GlameBag

04-GBLP-Bag

WHAT I LOVED

Hands down this is by far my most favorite glam bag design ever. The sheer creative direction for spring and detail hit home for me. This is a bag I will not be using but just decorating my home with. (Yes, I do that sometimes!)

H2O’s Oasis Hydrating Treatment was my next favorite item in this month glam bag. I suffer from extremely dry skin and it gets worse after applying makeup. This treatment not only worked wonders as a stand along night treatment but also between my moisturizer and makeup. It’s infused with water-based ingredients like seagrass extract and water lily extract which helps condition and soften the skin. My skin literally slurped this right in! Talk about quenching a thirst! Giving this one a 10/10!

Bbellápierre Cosmetics answers the question can I have my setting powder and it gets rid of redness and dark circles too? A semi-transparent formula that looks Oh So Natural! It doesn’t cake or fuss and can be used very versatile! How I use this is as a loose setting powder under the eye and on the eyelid during the summer to keep my concealer from melting off my face. It also helps matt any liquid contour I have on. It does not cake or create those weird wrinkles on your face from your foundation, keeping everything in place! OH Darling, encore! 10/10!

Beau Gâchis Cosmetics are your best-kept secret for great brushes at affordable pricing. (They have a sale right now! Get any 5 brushes for $30!) What makes the tapered blending brush so good? The curved tip makes for great blending out eyeshadow perfectly with no mess. The brush can also double to dusting highlighter on your cheekbones or nose. Even as synthetic hair, it is fluffy for powder formulas and small enough for creams. Want that amazing smoky eye look? Get it with this brush! Si se puede, 10/10! 

WHAT I ….EH

It isn’t fair to say I didn’t love the other products I just didn’t need them as much. Personally, I did not use Symphony Beauty’s Purifect Micellar cleansing water because I am already in love with IT Cosmetics Miracle Water 3-in 1 cleanser. Purifect is a cheaper version of Miracle Water and absolutely does somewhat the same except two things. The Miracle Water from IT Cosmetics also has a skin-brightening radiance booster and a whole lot of anti-aging peptides that help nourish dry skin. Purifect does contain microscopic molecules called micelles that attach to dirt and grime on your face and yes it has coconut extract (everything has coconut now) that helps hydrate and smooth your skin in a no-rinse makeup removal formula but I want more in my cleanser! Don’t you?

Last but not least Ciate London Starstruck Double Ended Stamp liquid line just didn’t give me the Starstruck feeling I needed. I get I can make stars on my makeup, but who wants black stars? Maybe someone else, but I’d prefer colored stars! Now if the end was a stencil that’s thinking outside the box!

All in all, I’m quite pleased with my bag. Let me know your thoughts on my review and tell me what you received if you are also an Ipsy member! Want to receive your own Ipsy glam bag? Get one now by clicking for a referral!

MAC Cosmetics X Patrick Starr Makeup Collection Premier Party

#MACPATRICKSTARR

You know what truly inspires the broken dreams, broken hearts, disdained, lost, and depressed to pursue their dreams? Success stories from people like Patrick Starr; a diligently positive, passionate, and humble MUA from Florida turned YouTube’s biggest makeup star. How did Patrick Starr get his start in makeup before turning into the biggest name in makeup? To be frank, it wasn’t something you think from movies like The Devil Wears Prada, no this was more humbling. A MAC Cosmetics manager in a Florida mall gave a young hardworking creative soul a job. An opportunity. A chance.

These days, we find ourselves striving for more in life, to make it to the top and sometimes forget to throw the rope back down. Or maybe we just don’t want to. But not Patrick. Nope. Patrick Starr is an angel. It was no wonder he came out on stage in wings covered in silver glitter and white diamonds. It’s no wonder that as Patrick spoke about his past, his pains, and his love for his fans that the whole room turned into sobs, cheers, “YASSS”, and snaps. Coming full circle, starting from the bottom, working at a MAC Cosmetics store and now being the first ever influencer to work with MAC Cosmetics for a whole new makeup collection speaks volumes of the road Patrick has taken to this point.

This premier party was not in celebration to the makeup line, though that is part of it. No, the real celebration was the belief that success does happen. It can happen to anyone, you just cannot give up. You Cannot Give Up.  As Patrick showcased his new products, the words he spoke gave a solemn understanding of a critical realization,  “I can’t believe this is happening. If I can do it, you can do it. You can do anything.”

Congrats to PS, you deserve this and much more darling. Check out Patrck Starr X MACCosmetics collab collection here.
