I don’t lose any sleep over my laugh lines. At my age (65 in March!), they come with the territory. 😉 But I do want my (mature) skin to look its best: healthy and radiant. So products that add and promote hydration are key.

A new hydrating serum
Today, Biossance launches Squalane + Copper Peptide Rapid Plumping Serum, and offered me a bottle in advance to try. This serum is formulated to boost moisture and maintain hydration in the skin. The key ingredients include
- copper peptides (to support collagen and elastin production)
- hyaluronic acid, polyglutamic acid and Squalane (derived from sugarcane) to draw and hold moisture
- Paracress extract (for visible firming)
Biossance has kindly offered my readers a 20% discount so you can try this new serum with code UNEFEMME20
The blue color you see is from the copper peptides. I squeeze a dropperful in my palm, rub hands, and then gently massage into my face and neck. You can also apply directly to the face from the dropper.
I’ve been using the Squalane + Copper Peptide Rapid Plumping Serum for a couple of weeks now, and do notice that my skin looks plumper and more hydrated after applying, and throughout the day. I find this serum is very gentle, and may be a good option for those with sensitive skin. (There is no discernible fragrance.)
In addition to the serum, I was offered two Biossance products so decided to try this Squalane + Omega Repair Cream. It’s described as “ultra-hydrating,” and in our often-dry climate I need that. It is a light but rich cream that absorbs well and feels hydrating and soothing. I use after the serum. There is a mild fragrance which dissipates quickly after applying.
I’ve been mixing it with the Squalane & Vitamin C Rose Oil (gifted from an earlier collaboration) love that little extra bit of radiance.
Don’t forget the sunscreen!
And my morning skincare routine is never complete without sunscreen! I use only mineral sunscreens, but find that some formulas can be a little drying or get cakey over time. I’ve used Biossance Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen for a few months now, and it’s one of my favorites. It’s moisturizing, sheer, and doesn’t settle into my “laugh lines.”
At 30 SPF, it’s the one I reach for during winter months, or days when I won’t be in high UV situations. This sunscreen is Reef Safe, and as with all Biossance products, is vegan and cruelty-free. There is no discernible fragrance, so should be good for sensitive skin.
And don’t forget, use code UNEFEMME 20 for 20% off!
