Product Review: Bioeffect Body Intensive and Bioeffect Daytime Cream.

Bioeffect review imageReview by Ceri Wheeldon

I always like to share skincare products that really make a difference.

I suffer terribly from dry skin on my lower legs. I have no idea why it only affects my legs- I have tried all sorts of lotions and potions, body brushing- lots of things with no difference.

I had previously used Bioeffect EGF serum on my face with great results, and discovered that they now had a new Body Intensive lotion ( I read about in an inflight magazine) I thought it was definitely worth  giving a try. It is a highly concentrated clear liquid, and  you only need quite literally a drop per arm and leg. It sinks straight into the skin, instantly making the skin feel softer.  The skin on my legs in particular has improved dramatically, the itching has disappeared, and the skin on my arms feels far softer. It was particularly good around my elbows, which always tend to be very dry during the winter.

Bioeffect lotion is highy concentrated

The facial serum is great and effective , but also expensive (about £125 for 15ml and £49 for 5ml at Boots) , so I was pleased to see that they have also introduced a day cream, at a far more reasonable price of £55 at Boots. Again, the product is concentrated and you only need a very small amount per application.  It left my skin feeling very hydrated and silky to the touch.

The Bioeffect Body Intensive lotion is expensive at £80, but it has solved a problem for me. I would recommend it, but will probably use it in the future in short, sharp bursts to get my skin ready for a holiday or at the start of the summer, or to use a few days a month just on my legs to keep the dryness under control. Personally I think they are excellent for mature skins.

The Bioeffect products were developed by Nobel Prize winning scientists, and are apparently designed to stimulate and accelerate natural skin renewal. Incidentally – according to the information on the Bioeffects own website, the products are also paraben free.

I love the whole range, and if you have the budget to invest in a premium range it is definitely a set of products I would recommend.
