Serums have become very popular in the past few years and a new ‘holy grail’ one has recently hit the market, named ‘BioEffect EGF Serum’. If you haven’t heard of it already I’m surprised, because its being hailed as the next big thing and it seems like everyone is after a bottle of this wonder product.
Back in February I was given a sample of BioEffect and was introduced to the product. I learnt how it had been developed, what its ingredients are and how it works. I’ll admit I’m terrible with the science behind products but basically BioEffect is the next big anti-aging serum because it contains EGF: Epidermal Growth Factor, ‘a substance which occurs naturally in human skin and which has the ability to speed up the rate of cell turnover within the skin.’ One thing I think is pretty great is the fact that this serum took ten years to research, and two of the scientists for BioEffect won a Nobel Prize for their research – cool, huh!
Another thing I love about this product is the fact that it contains only 9 ingredients, yes, a miracle product with only 9 ingredients!
What I think - BioEffect recommend using this as a night treatment because it is extremely nourishing and great for use before bed. I find I only need two drops of this serum to cover my whole face and neck, which is fab because I only have a 5ml sized product so I’m not going to get through it too quickly (the biggest size they do is 15ml, you really don’t need to use much!).
The formula of this is extraordinary and I find it really difficult to explain, but its like a silky water-like substance which spreads easily over the skin. Once rubbed in, I find that my face becomes a bit sticky and tacky for about 30mins after application (another reason to use it before bed) and because of this I tend not to apply it in the morning. The morning after using it however, I always, always notice a difference. My skin honestly looks glowing, my skin tone looks slightly more even and I look really healthy. Two days after first using this my Mum commented on how beautiful my skin looked, and that was after two uses, no lie! When I use this I feel like foundation isn’t necessary, because it makes my skin look great.
Also, BioEffect doesn’t bring me out in any spots, which is a massive bonus for my acne prone skin which normally reacts to new products.
As I said earlier, I’ve been using this since February but I personally only use it three times a week before bed (on the other nights I use Quinoderm which is an acne cream, review to come!). This means that it becomes a nice luxury treatment a few times a week and it will also last longer this way!
Now on to the only negative bit – the price! As a student I could not have afforded to try this, the 15ml tube is £125! However the 5ml is £49. When I first heard the price of this I nearly fainted, but after using it and seeing the difference I will happily part with another £49 (birthday money?) for a new one. Also, I can’t comment on its ‘anti-aging’ properties as I’m only 22, but I will continue to use this and hopefully will be wrinkle free by the time I’m 60 (if I’m still blogging I’ll let you know, haha!!).
