This week I am reviewing a fabulous product I have been trying out over the past few weeks. If you follow me on Instagram (@aminaali_mua), you may have seen me raving about it in my stories. It's the Bio-essence 24K Bio-Gold Miracle Finisher. This product is used like a primer and, as the last step in your skincare routine, it is applied before make-up. From what I have seen so far, I am sold!
Let's start with the packaging first of all. The holographic shine is enough to get anyone's attention, but the sparkle doesn't stop there. Contained within this 30ml bottle is something that is going to get your skin shining like never before. I first wondered why this wasn't labelled as a primer. But its because this is not just your average primer. It does all the things a primer does, like giving you a fabulous base for your make-up and making it last that little bit longer, but also does a whole lot more. Not only does it work as a barrier to protect your skin from every day pollutants in the air, it also locks in the skincare you have already applied, allowing it to continue to work, without being disturbed by your make-up. Finally it gives you added skincare by reducing the appearance of wrinkles with continued use.
I have used this product on myself and on my clients as I wanted to see how it works on different skin types. What I liked was that it gives all skin types a matte effect, but without taking away the dewy glow. The way it does this is because within the cream are tiny particles of bio-gold (contains added minerals), which when rubbed into the skin are easily absorbed and give a radiant finish. I love the effect it gives so much that I have actually worn this without any make-up over, as it gives you naturally looking flawless skin.
At £29.99 it doesn't come cheap but is worth the money in my opinion. If you like the sound of this, there is actually a whole 24K Bio-Gold range that I can't wait to get my hands on and is available at Superdrug now.
This little bit of luxury is something that I am definitely going to keep in my kit as the comments I get when I use it are fabulous! In the picture above I am wearing it under my foundation, but it has given me a perfectly matte base with underlying radiance and this is what I strive for in my make-up application. Have you used anything from the Bio-essence range? What do you use to get that glow?
