This week I will be writing lots more beauty type posts and including some new products that I have been using recently.
Today I have 3 products from Janiro and their Bio-essence range.
The first product is pretty much a multi use product and can be used by all members of the family. Bio essence water comes as both 100ml and 300ml aerosol spray bottle. It does a lot of things including acting as a cooling spray on hot days, moisturising dry hair, helps to reduce eye strain and even as a make up stay spray.
As it’s ph balanced and hypoallergenic it means even those with very sensitive skin can use this without problems. My 9 year old daughter suffers from dry skin problems and this helps to relieve dry patches.
It’s only ingredients are Aqua and nitrogen so it really is a very gentle product. I imagine the nitrogen is just for the aerosol bit rather than the product itself.
The one slight let down with this product is that if using it as a general cooling spray to cool down in the sun when sweating then it does make my skin smell a bit, like a sweaty odour which is luckily temporary.
It seems perfectly safe to spray all over the body even on the face.
Price starts from £9.00.
Next onto my favourite product of the three- The Facelifting cream with royal jelly and ATP.
I’m always a little dubious when products and creams claim to beable to give face lifts and make the skin feel better, but this is one that I actually really like. The moment I apply it, I get an instant lovely cooling sensation all over my face and it lasts a few minutes afterwards. It’s not often I get this from other creams and it tells me that something is definitely working there. I have also noticed a slight reduction on my head lines which just don’t seem as noticeable recently.
And look it’s like a pot of whipped cream!
I love this stuff. The cooling effect, the reduction of lines and how it dries so quickly. This is one product that leaves my skin feeling great after just one application.
This cream has many benefits, all of which you can read about on the product page. It is not an amazing cheap product because good products don’t come very cheap. A 40g pot of this stuff costs £33.90 but it really is a good buy.
Snail secretion! Yes really!
This product got me thinking. It couldn’t possibly be made from real snails could it? Not those slimy things with shells that we all find in our gardens? But yes it is.
The use of snail slime in beauty products actually goes back to Ancient Greece. Just as we excrete oils in sweat to protect our skin, snails do a similar thing. As a snail protects itself, the slime that is excreted from its body is packed with nutrients like hyaluronic acid, glycoprotein enzymes, antimicrobial and copper peptides, and proteoglycans. All of these nutrients are already commonly added to beauty products and are thought to provide many benefits to skin.
As well as natural snail secretion this snail repair serum also contains collagen and bio energy fluid amongst other beneficial ingredients.
The application is by a glass dropper and it can be applied alone or with a moisturiser such as the face lift cream above. This is the first time I have used any type of snail secretion product. It is not slimy or smelly and unless told I would have had no idea that this product is made with the help of snails.
This serum is £26.90 for a 30ml bottle.
