Review of Biossance Squalane Oil

review of Biossance squalane oil

I am in love with Biossance’s Squalane Oil. My skin has been acting up all summer - between the heat and humidity, allergy attacks, and switching up my skincare for all clean products it’s been a bit rough. Literally. And this product has brought it back to life!

After spending a good chunk of my 20’s figuring out how to deal with my dry and sensitive skin it was really upsetting to see it all out of whack again. When I don’t follow a rigid skincare routine consisting of morning and night moisturizer, serum, and a thorough cleansing with a mild face wash (my favorite is this one) it gets red and splotchy and I get a large dry spot in the center of my forehead. Well, this summer I stopped using a few of my moisturizers as part of my quest for “cleaner” skincare, my skin got dry and red again. Plus, the heat this summer led to breakouts as well. I’d seen a lot of ads for Biossance products and after doing a bit of research I decided to pull the trigger.

I am so happy I did! My skin is moisturized, the redness is gone, and it has it’s glow back! Plus I haven’t had any breakouts! You know when you’re skin looks radiant because it feels healthy? That’s what Squalane Oil brought back to my skin.

The Squalane Oil is made of 100% squalane oil derived from sugarcane (you can read about that here) and at $32 a bottle the price point is far more reasonable that a lot of products I’ve seen.

I also really love the Squalane + Peptide Eye Cream. It blends in nicely, I feel like my eye area is moisturized, and it doesn’t leave a greasy sheen underneath makeup.

It’s safe to say Biossane is one of my new favorite brands and I can’t wait to try the other products like the Squalane + Omega Repair Cream.

My Favorite Clean Skincare Products

Today I’m excited to share my favorite clean skincare products. For a while now I’ve tried to eliminate parabens, retinol, strong fragrances and other more toxic ingredients from my skincare. I know there are a lot of mixed opinions about whether these ingredients are safe, but I personally don’t like to use them. I know that it’s a very personal choice, and I’m not here to preach or judge, but rather to share the products that work well for me!

I know that there are a lot of options out there, and a lot of labels (organic v. clean v. natural v. all natural…the list goes on!) and it can seem overwhelming! I personally start my “clean” product search by looking at curated product lists put out by companies like Credo beauty, Goop, and clean at Sephora and then check the ingredients on Then, I test them to see what holds up! Here are my current favorites -

My favorite clean skincare products
  1. Jet Lag Mask - This mask has a heavenly texture. It is super thick and moisturizing, and your skin just drinks it up. Feel free to use it as a face mask, or also as a night cream.

  2. Ursa Major Face Balm - This day time moisturizer smells so good! It is super moisturizing despite the light texture, and doesn’t leave a greasy residue. It’s the only beauty product JD has ever requested that I re-purchase, he never wants to run out!

  3. Biossance Eye Gel - I like the fact that this eye cream absorbs into the skin without a lot of rubbing or tugging, and it makes my eyes look more awake.

  4. Herbivore Prism - I love, love this stuff! it’s a daily serum and it leaves your skin more even and refined, and it lasts for months.

  5. Juice Beauty Anti-Wrinkle Serum - This serum makes all the rest of your skincare just glide on, and adds an extra boost of hydration to dry skin.

  6. Juice Beauty Nutrient Moisturizer - I love how thick and moisturizing this cream is. Apply at night for glowing morning skin.

  7. Biossance Squalane Oil - This oil adds some extra TLC and moisture to dry and tired skin. It’s a great extra layer if night cream isn’t enough (I always use two moisturizing products before bed, for example).

Have you tried any of these? What do you think of them?
