I used only one skincare product for two months. Here are the results!



Almost two months ago I was given a box Biologi products by a friend for my birthday. Following on from that, I used only one skincare product as my routine. How did my minimalist skincare routine go? You're clearly here to find out.

Now full disclosure - I forgot to take before and after photos so I can't exactly 'show' you the results, but I will describe them as best as I can. Also - this post is not sponsored, I just wanted to share my results with you. 

For those of you who haven't heard of Biologi before, let me introduce you! Biologi Founder Ross Macdougald has been creating plant extracts for inclusion in cosmetic products since 2012. Frustrated by the levels at which his serums were being used in commercial products, he created Biologi, the world’s first 100% active natural plant serum. It contains no harmful chemicals, no additives, perfumes, not even water. Biologi is the first skincare company to master the entire production process from plant to bottle. Their products are entirely traceable and sustainable. Biologi is extracted, produced and packaged in Byron Bay, Australia, using organic native botanical’s. 
 

Biologi is the only 100% active organic plant serum in the world. It’s a radically different approach to skincare that delivers unheard of results.

Biologi has three different serums. For this month test I used only one of them - the Luminosity Face Serum. The hero ingredient for the Luminosity serum is Davidson Plum. It also contains Phenolic Acid, Tartaric Acid, Anthocyanin and Quercetin. The serum is specifically designed for acne prone skin, rejuvenation and anti-ageing. It is designed to
skin strength, hydration, natural skin glow, creates a protection barrier against environmental factors and photosensitivity, while decreasing appearance of skin blemishes, early aging and onset of fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks and sun spots, redness, especially from sun exposure.



When my friend gave it to me, she gave me a couple of tips. The first tip was that it was best to introduce slowly (great advice, it's what I try to do whenever I use new skincare - this allows my skin to get used to it before diving right in). The second piece of advice was that the serum would work best when used by itself. Upon doing some deeper research, it was true - when you use the serum you don't need to use any additional moisturiser or serum. Yes, you can still use your favourite cleanser, exfoliant and sunscreen, but you don't need anything else. I still threw in a weekly mask, but other than that, Biologi was basically the only skincare product I was putting on and leaving on my face. This was definitely hard for me to get used to - I am used to my long routine, but I do have to say when I'm running late in the morning, one step makes things SO much easier.

Now when I started to use the serum, I introduced it very slowly. The first week I used it only at night, every other night. Week two I used every morning and second night. Then from the third week it was all in - I was using the serum every morning and night. I was warned that my skin would probably go through a massive purge as I was introducing it, but I didn't really notice my skin getting worse before it got better. In all honesty, what I noticed was that my skin just continually got better. I attribute this to introducing the serum slowly. I think my skin got used to it while slowly phasing out my old skincare. 

Well I guess that leads me into the results. Until this last week (when I was on camp), my skin had become the best it has been in a long time. When I first started using the serum I was feeling really frustrated by my skin (see my October Catch Up Real Talk). I had basically just had a doctor tell me that there was nothing I could do to stop my 'acne' because it wasn't actually acne, but a form of dermatitis. I was slowly coming to terms with the fact that there was very little I would be able to do to clear my skin up. Then I started to introduce the Luminosity serum. I didn't have my hopes up high, and this could possible attribute to why I feel so positively about this product. Almost two months on and my skin was looking amazing. I still had some scarring and redness that is inevitably from the dermatitis, but I essentially hadn't had more than five white heads appear for weeks and my skin was looking amazing. It was glowy, clear and looking the best it had in ages. I still wouldn't go out in public without make up on, but I was wearing less make up. My make up was also sitting better than it had in a long time. To put it in blatant honest terms - I was happy with my skin for the first time in months (maybe even years) and that is all that I could ask for. 

My bottle is now completely empty, and at $97.95, it is not a serum I can afford to repurchase at this stage, but I will be eventually, probably when my skin gets horrendous again. Essentially, it really was a winner for me. 



Have you tried Biologi skincare before or thinking about it? I'd love to hear your thought about the brand and the idea of minimalist skincare. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below or share your reaction xx
