Bonjour mes amis, ca va? I hope you’ve all been well, today I wanted to share a post I did last year over at Beyond Your Mirror about one the best organic skincare brands I’ve ever come across. I’m re-sharing this post because I’ll be reviewing a few other products soon and for anyone who hasn’t seen this post or for those that don’t know of Biologi then I thought I’d introduce you to the basics to get you started. Enjoy friends X
Hi lovelies, it’s so good to be back. I hope you’ve all been having a great week so far and have some nice relaxing plans for the weekend ahead.
Today I wanted to share with you a few new products I’ve been using from Biologi. I first heard about Biologi a few months ago and have to admit I was a little skeptical that three products could replace almost everything in our skin care routine. Now don’t worry I’m not about to tell you to throw out your favourite body mousse or night serum but I am going to share with you the results I have personally experienced using Biologi’s Bf, Bd and Bk serums for the last few months and I’ll explain what makes them work so well all on their own.
So as I said I’d heard of Biologi and their Bf serum and although I was skeptical my curiosity had been pricked enough to buy it and give it a go. After all, it’s what I do for you gals and guys. I research to find the best chemical free products around, try them and let you know what I thought.
Before I get started though here’s a little important information on these products. I must say that each product is plant-based and the fruit enzyme extracted and each product is solely one plant ingredient. I’ll explain. The extraction method captures the plants phyto-active nutrients at their most potent, leaving the concentrated life force straight from the plants cells. There are absolutely no fragrances, harmful chemicals or even water, simply 100% plant serum that is wild harvested and sustainable. The serums are never diluted, altered, synthesized or manipulated in any way. Biologi look after the plant to bottle process entirely themselves. These days most skin care is with 2% active ingredients, however Biologi is 100% active and as the plant works in itself it works on your skin enabling it to penetrate deeper into the epidermis to repair, restore and give your skin a more hydrated glow.
Biologi Bf Serum ~ Biologi’s Bf serum is made with Finger Lime (fruit extract) a unique blend of fruit acids and vitamin C. This is your all over body serum and a great one to start with for your face as well. You might notice a slight sticky feeling the first few times perhaps even for a week or longer but this is completely normal and means the serum is working and doing its job. Start with this serum once a day until you feel the stickiness has gone and then you can use it twice a day if you like. If you’re using this on your face start with once a day in the morning, however keep reading below as I’m about to cover it in more detail as we talk about the Bd serum.
Biologi Bd Serum ~ Biologi’s Bd serum is made from the amazing Davidson Plum (fruit extract). This is your new face ‘moisturizer’. I’m loving this serum and since I’ve been using it I’m amazed at the difference in my skin and sun damage pigmentation. I don’t have a lot of sun damage just one or two small areas from not using sunscreen in my 20’s but man I’m amazed at how much its lightened. Unfortunately I didn’t think to take before and after pictures as I’d already started with the Bf serum before switching to the Bd serum. Now if you’re going to start using either Bf or Bd serum in your skin care routine then don’t do what I did and go straight to using it twice a day lol! Thankfully for me I was already using an organic and chemical free skin care system as well as clean and green makeup…Inika for example. So for me my skin didn’t really purge (break out) at all using the Bf serum but it did a little using the Bd serum but it cleared up very quickly. Ok, so when you start with your new serum you start by using it once a day in the morning for the first week and then use your regular moisturizer in the evening. In the second week you keep using your serum every morning and then alternative nights. So Monday night your serum, Tuesday night your regular nightly moisturizer and so on. Now if you notice some purging don’t freak out and stop using the serum! It means the serum is working and doing it’s job and your skin is going to love you for it. Mine sure does. By week three you can now start using the serum both morning and night and your skin should be glowing like the sun…woohoo.
Biologi Bk Serum ~ Biologi’s Bk serum is made from the popular Kakadu Plum (fruit extract). This is your new eye ‘cream’. Bk is a great serum and really helps minimize fine lines and pigmentation with its high levels of vitmain C. What I love about this oil is you can use it as an all over serum on your face and on the body where you may have sun damage, like the back of your hands. In fact I find Biologi is the only thing that has gotten my hands and cuticles back in great shape. It’s also remarkably improved the fine lines around my eyes and being as I’m turning 44 soon I’m definitely wanting those lines reduced. Now with Bk you only need the slightest amount of serum (a quarter pump) to use around both eyes and yes you can use your Bd serum afterwards but keep reading below because there’s some special points to consider when using the serums.
How to use the serums together?
Now technically you don’t use the serums together in the traditional sense. Being as the serums are 100% active plant cells you don’t overlap the serums. Simply put the serums don’t like each other. They like you and love your skin but their not friends to each other. So if you layer them or mix them together in your hand you can actually destroy and decrease some of the plant actives found in the serums, like vitamin C…..so it’s best to keep the serums separate to get maximum potency and have an AM and a PM serum. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t use your Bd (eye) serum on your eye area and then use Bk (face) serum on the rest of your face. Simply be mindful of where you’ve placed your Bd serum and try not to go over the area with the Bk serum. It’s really not as daunting as it sounds and you’ll have the knack of it in no time.
How much serum to use?
With the Bf serum you use two pumps per body area or limb if you like. So two pumps for each arm, two pumps for each leg and so on. you may need 2 or three pumps for your back/buttocks and torso/breast area. Yes that’s right lovelies I said breast area!! We need to look after all of our skin and your breasts will love you for it too.
Now with the Bk serum you only need one pump for your face and down your neck. If you’re wanting to include your decolletage (and I highly recommend you do) then you’ll need two pumps of your Bk serum
As we mentioned before with the Bd serum you only need the smallest amount around the eyes and it can be tricky to get that quarter pump but just press gently and you’ll get it. If too much product comes out simply use what you need and use the rest on your cuticles/hands and watch them transform.
Who can use Biologi Serums?
The short answer is…everyone! Yes it’s suitable for everyone in the family to use so if you have family members with eczema, psoriasis, dry/flakey skin, pigmentation, sun damage, sunburn or even nappy rash then get your Biologi out and use the Bf on everyone as it’s the most gentle. It’s extremely good for babies with rashes and because it’s 100% plant-based it’s not going to hurt them and you have peace of mind knowing to chemicals are going into their blood stream via their skin. So Biologi is absolutely great for everyone and every age.
My thoughts on Biologi.
Well lovelies, you know I only share products with you that are truly amazing, do what they say they do and are good for you. After using Biologi for the last three months (update almost 2yrs now) I have to say I’ve gone from being skeptical to a long life customer because the products work. Who would have guessed just one ingredient could do so much for your skin from head to toe but when your using a plant in its true form with nothing altered then is it really any surprise what nature has given us to use? And doesn’t it explain why in so many other cultures women have amazing skin right into their 70’s, 80’s and 90’s? It’s because they’re using plants in the natural state with absolutely no nasties added….it’s really not rocket science, it’s common sense. You want great skin then stay away from chemicals and toxins and watch your skin improve.
Personally I’m a huge fan of Biologi and will continue to use it and now my daughter is at an age where she’s beginning her own skincare routine I’ll be making sure she only uses the best that Biologi has to offer.
As always lovelies if you have any questions or comments leave them below and I’ll get back to you and if your wanting to check out Biologi then you can find them here….have a great day and take care.
