Biossance: the BEST skincare for beginners & minimalists

If you’ve ever DM’d me about a really GOOD but less expensive luxury skincare line, I probably told you about Biossance! After I tried Biossance a couple of years ago, they've been a brand I've recommended over and over. Not only does Biossance carry affordable, amazing products, but they’re offering 30% OFF SITEWIDE for Black Friday and Cyber Monday from now until 12/5 (run don’t walk!!). If you purchase today, 11/22, you’ll also get 44% off their Squalane + Glycolic Renewal Mask!

This is an incredible sale to take part in if you have a teen that wants to get started using skincare, if you decided you want to start a journey but are looking for “skincare for beginners,” OR if you just want a skincare routine that will do the job well without 5-6 products in the lineup morning & night.

In this post you'll find the lineup I ALWAYS recommend to someone with at least one of those points of criteria! About a year ago I was trying to talk my sister into using products other than drugstore skincare and what I’m sharing with you today is EXACTLY what I started her on.

While this amazing 30% off Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale is going on, I want to share a 4-step system to introduce you to my Biossance faves that will start your skincare journey off in the best way possible (for any skincare type)!! The perfect skincare for beginners.

Top 4 products to start a skincare routine

#1 Squalane + Elderberry Jelly Facial Cleanser

This cleanser is AMAZING for removing makeup and is super gentle! It’s perfect for acne-prone skin, dry skin, or oily skin (seriously!). It works for ALL skin types.

I love how it feels on my face, and you can’t beat the price considering its high-end benefits! I’m obsessed with their use of antioxidant-rich elderberry extract in this cleanser that was awarded 2021 Glamour Beauty Award's “Best Cleanser”!!!

#2 Squalane + Omega Repair Cream

This is a basic moisturizer you can use every day! I love this product because I’m always looking for the best anti-aging ingredients, plus it totally saves the day when my skin is feeling dry.

This cream will deeply moisturize without leaving a greasy feeling and adds a dewy finish without making you look shiny. Plus, it's rated nearly perfect with 5 stars and adored by countless reviewers!!

#3 Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer

If you have acne-prone skin, a teen who is fighting acne, or oily skin – grab this!!

I ALWAYS go to this product when I’m starting to breakout, and it helps me get over it really quickly. This moisturizer also helps visibly brighten your skin while smoothing the look of those problem areas. It's suchhhh a game changer when it comes to reducing redness and pore size.

#4 Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream

Don’t miss out on the benefits of under eye cream!! Our eyes are an area that wrinkles SO quickly and moisturizing with a product like this will keep you super hydrated and even help your concealer look and apply better.

Take three seconds in the morning AND night to put this cream on under your eyes and you'll see the difference. Luckily the Marine Algae Eye Cream isn’t overly oily and won’t bother your lash extensions, either!!

When I use this cream I instantly see the results of firming and smoothing around my eyes – it’s one of my fave Biossance products that goes such a long way! (PS – did I mention it’s cruelty-free?)
