Biofficina Toscana Revitalizing Facial Serum

July 14, 2014


Biofficina Toscana je italijanska znamka o kateri še nisem slišala veliko. Pravzaprav se na blogih sploh ne omenja, zato sem se odločila, da preizkusim njihov Poživljajoč serum za obraz*. Izdelki Biofficina Toscana vsebujejo naravne sestavine in sestavine iz kontrolirane ekološke pridelave, ne vsebujejo PEG, parabenov, naftnih derivatov, parafina, SLS, SLES, silikonov in umetnih barvil. Znamka v svoje izdelke vključuje sestavine lokalnega izvora, izvlečke rastlin, ki jih gojijo v Toskani ter tradicionalne toskanske rastline. Z biodinamičnim gojenjem rastlin združujejo skrb za ekološki standard s tehnikami kmetovanja, ki spoštujejo Zemljo. Znamka ne testira na živalih, serum je primeren tudi za vegane.

Poživljajoč serum je primeren za vse tipe kože in je optimalen za tanko in občutljivo kožo. Obraz vlaži in ščiti pred prostimi radikali. Vsebuje kombinacijo olj, kot so olje grozdnih pešk in riževih otrobov, sezamovo in sončnično olje, ki kožo pomirjajo in ščitijo, ter aktivnih sestavin skvalan olja in bisabolola. Skvalan je pridobljen iz olivnega olja in je različica skvalena in nima njegovih antioksidantnih lastnosti in ne more sodelovati pri obnovi zaščitnega plašča kože in tako ne pripomore k zmanjševanju izgube vode skozi kožo. Skvalan se le odlično vpije v kožo in jo pusti mehko. (vir) Za serum pa sem se odločila le zaradi skvalena! V glavi sem imela, da je čudovit vlažilec kože ampak očitno ga serum sploh ne vsebuje. Kot običajno sem to spoznala šele ob pisanju te objave. Skvalen, skvalan, saj se mi že meša, bom raje šla kar na mojo izkušnjo s serumom.
Gre za oljnat a lahek serum, se dokaj hitro vpije, kožo pusti sijočo in mehko. Shranjen je v steklenički s pipeto, ki mi je pri oljih najljubša, zelo enostavno za uporabo. Serum sem uporabljala en mesec, običajno zjutraj in zvečer in v tem času nisem opazila sprememb, ne v večji navlaženosti kože, ne v teksturi. Ničesar. Pravzaprav me je pustil kar malce ravnodušno.

Škoda, ker nisem preizkusila katerega drugega seruma, naprimer Antioksidativnega z izvlečki črnega ribeza, malin in borovnic.


Translation
Biofficina Toscana is an Italian natural and organic brand. I haven't heard a lot about it, I have yet to read a review. Curious that I am, I decided to try their Revitalizing Facial Serum* or Reinvigorating Visage Serum. Biofficina Toscana products are free of PEG, parabens, petrolatum, paraffin, SLS, SLES, silicones and artifical coloring. Brand is cruelty free, the serum is vegan. In their products they include extracts of plants grown in Tuscany and traditional Tuscany ingredients. Plants are grown with bio dynamic agriculture, combining care for organic standards with farming techniques that respect the earth, following and supporting its natural processes.
Revitalizing facial serum is suitable for all skin types, especially delicate, sensitive, mature and stressed skin. A precious synergy of vegetable oils with Squalane and Bisabolol enhances the moisture of the skin, protecting it from free radicals, therby giving it a more radiant look. It contains oils like grape seed, rice bran, sesame and sunflower oil. Squalane is made out of olive oil and it's different to Squalene which is an antioxidant and a natural moisturizer. An excellent one. Unfortunately Squalane doesn't have the same properties. What a bummer. Before this post I didn't even know about that! Squalene, squalane, I don't how I will remember the good one? :)
The serum itself is oily but light, it's quite quickly absorbed into the skin and it leaves it soft and shiny, glowy. Serum comes in a glass bottle with pipette which I find best for oils. I used it for about a month, in the mornings and the evenings and unfortunately I didn't see any results, not in the skin's moisture level nor texture. Nothing. It left me underwhelmed. Too bad I didn't try a different serum. :)

  4. Nice review..shame you didnt see so many results! Never heard of this brand either.
    Squalane is the refined form of squalene and acts as an excellent emollient for the skin.
