BIOXIDEA Skincare - It's #%*! Magic

There are a ton of steps you can take and products you can use to prevent aging - but your bathroom counter will get pretty crowded and it's prob gonna take awhile.

If you don't feel like waiting around for weeks for results,  BIOXIDEA has got you.

One of the most extraordinary skincare companies happens to be fairly new. Founded in just 2008, this Parisian company has created a line of luxurious products for face and body that will BLOW. YOUR. MIND.

Unlike other companies, BIOXIDEA believes it's not just about looking youthful today - it's about long-lasting results. They do this by extensive bio research, combining "advanced anti-aging technology with powerful natural bioactive ingredients," and a jaw-dropping Advanced Anti-Wrinkle Technology that will have your friends and family doing double-takes when they see you.

These natural anti-agers lift, plump, tighten and brighten give you the skin you'd only otherwise achieve with weeks/months of appointments with high-end estheticians and doctors with needles in hand. And it's all done without parabens, sulfates, mineral oil, alcohol, surfactant, artificial colours and fragrances, testing on animals. Even all materials used in products and packaging are biodegradable and recyclable.

I tried just a few products from the line and it's changed everything. Take a look:

- Miracle 48 Excellence Gold & Diamond Face & Body Care Masks

Everyone is all about sheet masks these days, but many aren't the skin salvation you expect them to be - serums are too thick, masks don't fit or slide off, skin is still lacklustre following treatment.

These BIOXIDEA beauties however, are what other companies should be studying to get it right.

Two luxe selections are available: Gold and Diamond. And yes, they really do contain the elements - Gold with gold powder and Diamond powder in the other.

Each box contains 3 masks/applications, which means your skin is going to be perfect for what seems like forever. I'm talking months, and probably even years at this rate.

The Gold detoxifies while the Diamond rejuvenates, so you can cater them to your needs at the time.

Here's why these masks stand out far above the rest:

1.  The ingredients

They have GOLD AND DIAMONDS in them! How baller is that?!

There's also a ton of incredible botanicals, vitamins, and mineral nutrients ( Hello aloe, collagen, algae extract) that work to make your skin look superior not just today, but three weeks from now. They do everything from exfoliate to reverse the effects of sun damage, hyper-pigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles. In other words, all that stuff you've been trying to obliterate with multiple products and regimes? Not a sign of any of it anywhere, and all in one fell swoop.

Who's suddenly switching her reunion reply to yes?

2. The material 

The soft hydrogel adheres to your skin so you can have a glass of wine, binge-watch your show, read lying down... Basically get on and live your life, all while getting your youthful glow on.

And though I've tried masks with this material before, they were too thick to stay on, instead sliding around and even falling off. The thinness is key to it staying put and also feeling completely weightless. Ahhh.

3. The design

This is my first two-piecer and I love it. It makes it easier to guide it to where it's supposed to go, Like our bodies, often the bottom doesn't match the top (I'm working on it. Sigh).

You'll also find tiny slits so that you can smooth and stretch the mask to conform to your own contours. Mine even stayed put during a round of jumping jacks (I told you I was working on it).

4. The colour

Silver and gold? Come on, it feels like your prepping for the Oscars (I do happen to have my speech ready) and goes with your wardrobe whether you're rockin' a nightie before bed or a killer dress on your way out on the town.

5. The scent

A ethereal and fresh floral fragrance helps make the experience feel like you're in a spa, even if you're on the couch in a ripped tee.

BIOXIDEA, can you please make this into an eau de parfum, home fragrance, body wash and candle?

6. The result

All it took was 15-30 minutes (I did the whole 30) and even three days later, I looked a good decade younger, and in fact my skin is still vastly improved weeks later.

Not only luminescent, my skin is bright, supple, and free of lines, uneven tone, and all that roughness that I just couldn't shake.

After just a single Miracle 48 Mask, I look like the best me I could be, and that's all without a lick of makeup. Seriously, my skin looks better than it did when I was in my 20s.

When your skin is as flawless as it can be, it instills a weightlessness and joy that's hard to describe. It's confidence mixed with awe. Like you do and face anything. Even a freakin' ex if you had to. Which proves how stellar the results really are.

I feel phenomenal. Like a weight has been lifted. I want to celebrate, go dancing, try new things. After a single sesh with this pot of gold and and silver lining, not only did it transform the look of my mug, my skin became so soft and smooth, it feels completely new.

I feel completely new.

All that glitters is indeed gold. And diamonds. And now me.

All that from a mask? Yes, but only if it's from BIOXIDEA.

7. The bonus

This is the first time I've ever been instructed to use the leftover serum in the bath. Why hasn't I thought of this?**

Since I only have a hotel-type shower, I put it on my puff and scrubbed with it. Wow, it does for your bod what it did for your face. 'Nuff said.

**Because you can't do it with just any ol' mask. Only BIOXIDEA's works when dissolved in a warm bath. I told you they were geniuses.

As someone who thrives on being productive and efficient, I love makeup that does double duty and multitasks as skincare. Because you're wearing it anyway, why not make it work to your benefit?

So it's no wonder I'm a fan of BB Creams. But I've never had one like this before:

First of all, you need the teensiest bit to make a difference. Not only is that more cost-effective, it means your wearing less product - something I'm always striving for. Less is more is def my motto.

Second, it's so light, for once you won't feel like you're wearing makeup.

Third, the effect is pure magic. Like you've been professionally made up, lit and photographed for a magazine cover, except this is how your skin appears IRL. It's shocking at first - I thought maybe I had applied way too much, but it turns out that this is just how magical the formula is.

It somehow smooths out everything while infusing your skin with radiance and a healthy glow that makes it seem as if you've just returned from holiday. Or had amazing sex. Or fallen in love. And then the person you're head over heels for tells you they feel the same way.

Not just one of those things, but all of them combined.


And here's the kicker - it doesn't look caked on like most makeup. In fact, it doesn't look like you're wearing any makeup at all.  It's absolute perfection.

Ph it also has built-in UV protection, won't clog your pores, delivers serious hydration, and boosts your skin's firmness and elasticity (there's that collagen again), so say buh-bye to fine lines and wrinkles.

Mic drop. 

- Outline Saver Eye & Lip Anti-Wrinkle Serum

Look, I get that a company can have one warrior product. But two is rare.

And three? Come on.

I wouldn't believe it if I didn't see it with my own eyes.

This magic wand is is a full-on line eraser, obliterator.  It completely expunges lines I didn't even know was possible to hit the delete on, like the large deep ones on either side of your mouth running from the bottom of your nose to your chin. Mine are as cavernous as Kevin Spacey's.

And of course there's the lines/circles/shadows around my eyes, but let's not go there. I can only tend to so many things at once.

Well, that was all before this BIOXIDEA of course. Because it turns out this roller ball serum casts a spell on all your lines - worry/laugh/the whole shebang - and they up and disappear! And then there are most surprises that are so astonishing, you'll wonder if you're seeing things (You absolutely are not. This is real and it's happening, I promise).

You don't have to sit and wait for it to happen either. You put it on, do a quick massage and then voila - you have a whole new face that is line-free, thanks to radish root, sweet almond seed extract and other fascinating ingredients.

And it's so freakin' easy:

1. Turn the bottom cap clockwise.

2. Press just once.

3.. Using only a single pump of serum, you roll it on with the metal Shiatzu massage ball (spa treatment at home, holler!) on your upper and lower eyelids and then along those mouth lines I was telling you about earlier.

Feels. So. Good. 

And looks even better.

Even when you repeat this 2-4 times (I did it only twice and got standing ovation results) and gently apply pressure for three seconds on three pressure points to "stimulate decongestion effect" (don't worry there's an illustrated guide), it takes just seconds.

4. Turn the bottom button counterclockwise when you're done.

And the results?

So shocking you'll want to call and text everyone you know. Because who knew this was possible without stepping into a plastic surgeon's office? Without undergoing painful procedures, dropping a ton of cash and spending days/weeks in recovery?

All that baggage I was carrying around my eyes - lines/circles/shadows? WHOOSH. GONE.

It's so startling both in its immediacy and practically unbelievable results.

But here's where it gets even crazier.

Those lines from your nose to your mouth (nasolabial fold) and running from your nose to your chin on the sides of the mouth (marionette lines)? Also rubbed out. As if you'd never had them. As if you'd Face Tuned your appearance on your phone but here it was on your actual real face.

I had no idea these particular wrinkle and laugh lines could ever be erased. It is absolutely staggering. I've had them for over 20 years and in just seconds they've left, and might not ever return.

And then I noticed something extraordinary:

I have hooded eyes where the skin droops and leaves me with little to no eyelid and a kind of sleepy, aged look (Taylor Swift, Emma Stone and Diane Keaton all have it too, so at least I'm in good company). Add that to having tiny peepers in the first place, and well, it's not pretty. As I age, the droop has increased, making my eyes appear even smaller and no need to bother with eyeshadow or really any eye makeup.

After applying the serum only once on the top of my eyelids, the outer corner of my upper eyelids lifted to where I had an even lid from end to end. I didn't even had this as a kid, never mind ever as an adult. For the first time in my life, I can wear eyeshadow and you'd actually see it. I could rock a cat eye and it would make a difference after all. I look younger and energized and engaged. And this is a full week after application.

I could have surgery to have this rectified, but thanks to THE GREATEST SERUM OF ALL TIME, it turns out my eyes can be wide-eyed, for me at least.

No wonder I feel so different. Issues I thought were unchangeable are not only changed, but instantly. And for a long time to come.

Gobsmacked doesn't even begin to cover it.


BIOXIDEA isn't just any ol' skincare and makeup. These are products you dreamed about but thought it would take another decade for science to figure out. And they're so affordable - especially when you consider that your skin has not only been taken up a notch or ten - let's call it an even hundo - but these effects will last and last.

I haven't touched a mask or the serum in weeks and my skin is still absolute impeccable.
