Let’s take a little break from new foundation launches and talk about a brilliant mask that I’ve been loving the last few weeks, let’s talk Biossance Squalane + Glycolic Renewal Mask! Apologies for the spoilers, but if a product has made its way onto my blog then you know more than likely I must love it 🙂 Read on for my full thoughts!
In case you don’t know Biossance, they are a US based vegan, clean and sustainable skincare brand. They retail on Cult Beauty and Selfridges in the UK.
The brand is known for combining biotechnology and efficacious ingredients with sustainability – the products are both good for the user and the planet. From ingredient innovation to sustainable packaging, Biossance was founded with a passion for marine conservation with the creation of their 100% plant-based, renewable sugarcane-derived squalane that traditionally had been harvested from sharks livers. This squalane forms the basis of all the products in their range.

Why I love it
It was love at first use for me! The texture is incredible, melts away as soon as it touches the warmth of my skin. It spreads with ease. I can feel the slight tingling upon application but I can also feel the hydration from the squalane simultaneously. You can leave the mask on for 3-10 minutes, most of the time I would leave it on for 10 minutes and maybe 5 minutes when my skin feels a tad sensitive from my retinal treatment.
The formula is super effective. Glycolic acid, multi-alpha-hydroxy acids and mineral spheres work together to gentlly polish away dull, rough patches. I find the micro mineral spheres to be non-abrasive and help to smooth out my skin further. The inclusion of squalane and hyaluronic acid truly helps to hydrate and nourish my skin. I get that instant gratification of glowing and brighter complexion, my pores are minimised too. It’s so good that my skin doesn’t feel dry or tight immediately after. Also I love that the mask is housed in a squeezy tube, easy and mess-free to use.
The instruction states that you can use the mask twice weekly however it totally depends on the condition of your skin so tailor the frequency to your skin needs. And of course sun protection is a must!
