I am always on the hunt for the perfect skincare and the beauty blogger in me is always up for trying new things in order to find those wonderful holy grail products. I was lucky enough to be invited to the BIO:VÉGANE Blogger Event in Baden-Baden last month along with 6 other bloggers. I’ve met so many lovely people there and the team behind the brand is just incredibly nice.
After carefully examining my skin and talking through all their different skincare ranges, they helped me pick out what skin care products are right for my skin type. I feel like most people are not always aware of what ingredients to look for when it comes to skincare or makeup. Especially since Superfoods are now taking over skincare and cosmetics as well. We know all the good these foods can deliver when eaten, but you wouldn’t believe how strongly those benefits translate to skin products. BIO:VÉGANE offers 4 different skincare ranges. Bio Cranberry for normal to dry skin, Bio Green Tea for sensitive skin, Bio Goji for ageing skin and Bio Acai for combination skin. The packaging looks very clean, simple and I really like how the colours and designs are different for each range. With winter approaching, keeping my dry skin healthy and hydrated is my main priority when it comes to skincare. That’s where the Bio Cranberry range can work it’s wonders – I was very kindly given the entire range to try. Cranberries are rich in antioxidants such as Vitamin A, C, E and K and natural fatty acids that can help to improve the skin’s elasticity, boosts collagen and firm skin. Omega Fatty Acids provide deep hydration to the skin and lock in moisture.
BIO:VÉGANE Bio Cranberry Toner – I use this toner after cleansing my skin with the Cranberry Cleansing Foam*. This is actually one of my favourite steps in my skincare routine. I apply a small amount of toner to a soft cotton pad and gently wipe over my face. It leaves my skin feeling super refreshed and it helps to restore your skin’s natural pH balance. The main ingredients besides cranberries are hydrating fig extract, apricot oil and hyaluronic acid. This toner perfectly prepares my skin for the next step.
BIO:VÉGANE Bio Cranberry Serum – A serum is the first product that should be applied after cleansing and toning. Serums allow the active ingredients to penetrate into the epidermis instead of just lying on the surface of the skin. This way, they can offer highly-concentrated doses directly to your skin. This serum moisturises my skin wonderfully leaving my face feeling and looking soft and glowy. I apply a pea-sized amount of serum morning and evening and gently massage the product into my face and neck.
BIO:VÉGANE Bio Cranberry Moisturiser – The next step is of course, moisturiser! What I love most about this product is the very light texture – it feels very cooling, refreshing and absorbs fairly quickly so you don’t have to wait around for it to sink in before applying your make up. My skin literally drinks it up! A little bit definitely goes a long way so I will only use a pea-sized amount and massage it into my skin. I also really like the fresh scent of this product, but it’s not too overwhelming.
BIO:VÉGANE Bio Cranberry Sheet Mask – Whenever I want to enjoy some “me”-time I will use a face mask. Face masks are actually one of my favourite skincare products. Especially sheet masks are super easy to apply and fun to use. I love how hydrating this mask feels on my skin. I usually let it sit on my face for 10 to 15 minutes before taking it off. I then remove any excess with a soft cotton pad or gently massage it into my skin. I love all of their face masks but the Cranberry and Acai ones are my favourite.
BIO:VÉGANE Bio Cranberry Hand Cream – This is honestly the best hand cream to nourish your dry skin for this season. The cold is especially tough on palms, knuckles, and cuticles and I find this to be the best product to combat cracking and dryness. It sinks into the skin super quickly and leaves your hands moisturised for hours and hours.
I think BIO:VÉGANE is an amazing brand and it is refreshing to see a company trying to remove the nastiness in our skincare and focusing on using organic ingredients. I think the pricing is very reasonable, and definitely worth the money considering how much product you get for the price and the ingredients used. I would highly recommend this brand if you are looking for a good skincare routine which contains beneficial ingredients that won’t damage your skin. All of their products are vegan, cruelty free and made in Germany. I also have a special discount code for you guys. Use the code NEWPOP2017 at checkout to get 20% off the entire ranges.
