Biossance | Squalane + Glycolic Renewal Mask, Squalane + Vitamin C Dark Spot Serum & Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream: Review
First introduced to me back in 2019, Biossance is a California-based skincare company committed to using only non-toxic, effective, and sustainable ingredients with a focus on sugarcane-derived squalane. I've loved just about every single product I've tried from them so I was excited to delve into a few of their newer releases. To read more about the brand's Squalane + Glycolic Renewal Mask, Squalane + Vitamin C Dark Spot Serum, and Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream, click......
Biossance | Squalane + Glycolic Renewal Mask: Review
Biossance | Squalane + Glycolic Renewal Mask
Biossance | Squalane + Glycolic Renewal Mask (C$63 for 75 ml):
I thought that this is a new release from Biossance, but the Squalane + Glycolic Renewal Mask is simply a repackaging of the Squalane + Glycolic Renewal Facial (reviewed here) initially released several years back. Instead of a round jar, the Squalane + Glycolic Renewal Mask comes in a more convenient squeeze tube. Made with a melange of different AHAs (glycolic, lactic, tartaric, and malic acids), the mask has a soft cream formulation jazzed up with a dash of fine mineral spheres. The formulation feels quite concentrated so it's best to start slow if you are new to AHAs. The mask leaves the skin super soft and renewed, so it's great for those that want a smoother, more radiant complexion. Check out my original full review of the mask here.

Biossance | Squalane + 10% Vitamin C Dark Spot Serum: Review
Biossance | Squalane + 10% Vitamin C Dark Spot Serum
Designed to target dullness, uneven skin textures, and dark spots, the Squalane + Vitamin C Dark Spot Serum from Biossance comes in a sleek pump bottle. Containing 10% vitamin C that brightens and firms, white shittake mushroom and licorice root extract that targets dark spots, the serum has a lightweight texture that easily spreads and blends. The formulation is lightly hydrating and leaves the skin feeling smooth, non-sticky, non-greasy, and it layers well with other skincare products. Of all of the vitamin C serums I've tried so far (and I've tried quite a few), this definitely ranks high thanks to its clean ingredients and lightweight consistency.
Ingredients: Water/Aqua/Eau, Glycerin, 3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, Squalane, Lentinus Edodes Mycelium Extract, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Citric Acid, Polyacrylate Crosspolymer-6, Acacia Senegal Gum, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Gluconate, Sodium Citrate, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.

Biossance | Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream (C$71 for 15 ml):
A lightweight eye cream designed to improve firmness and elasticity, the Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream is formulated with line-smoothing marine algae complex, firming paracress extract, and nourishing squalane. The cream has a very light, non-greasy texture that literally melts into the skin. It's hydrating without feeling heavy and it doesn't migrate or irritate the eyes. For those looking for a lightweight eye cream that moisturizes and nourishes, this is an excellent option!
