Cocktails, Anyone?

by Mollie Jensen June 01, 2018

One thing we love about our products is their versatility. In addition to being stars on their own, they also play well with others. You can easily incorporate them into any routine, and they can be blended with various products (cocktailing) to create different effects—not to mention that it’s fun to act as your own personal cosmetic mixologist. Here are a few creative product cocktails that we’ve gathered from our team:

Protected & Perfected

Combine Squalane + Mineral SPF 45 with a few drops of your favorite foundation to create your own BB Cream for a lightweight, natural look that protects against damaging rays while giving a luminous glow. Perfect for beachy days and warmer weather when a “no-makeup makeup” look is desired.

No Filter

In the palm of your hand, add a couple of drops of Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil to a pump of your favorite foundation. Use a foundation brush or beauty blender to mix and then buff across your face in a light, circular motion for a beautifully smooth and glowy finish. No filter required.

Soft & Shimmered

Add a little sparkling mineral powder to a pump of 100% Squalane Oil for an ultra-hydrating body oil that gives you a soft, all-over glow. Use minerals with a cool hue at night out when you really want to shine or add a warmer tone to boost your summer glow during the day.

You Smell Good

Have a favorite essential oil or essential oil blend? Add a few drops to your bottle of 100% Squalane Oil and use as an aromatic, body moisturizing treat.

Drench & Quench

Moisturize while you bathe. After the tub is filled, add a couple pumps of 100% Squalane Oil to your bath water and mix with your hand. Jump in (carefully)!

Hit Refresh

Do you have cream highlighters, eye shadows or other makeup products that you still love, but have gone a little dry?  Add a few drops of 100% Squalane Oil or Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil and mix in to revive them back to their original, creamy goodness. You can also add a few drops to any type of cream makeup to make it more blendable on application.

Perfectly Primed

Apply foundation over Squalane + Mineral SPF 45 during the day and over Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer in the evening to prime skin for a flawless makeup finish. Each works as a primer to create a smooth canvas for your makeup to glide on.

Keep it Glowing x3

    - Mist on Squalane + Micronutrient Fine Mist over makeup to create a dewy finish. (Tip: Use long, slow pumps for the finest veil of mist.)
    - For those no makeup days, apply Squalane + Mineral SPF 45 to protect your skin and give it a luminous glow, follow with a mist of Squalane + Micronutrient Fine Mist for the ultimate radiance booster.
    - Pat a little Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil along the cheekbones and top with highlighter to get a natural “lit from within” glow.

    Yes kids, do try these at home. And if you have your own creative product cocktail, let us know in the comments below.

    Cheers!

    My lifelong obsession with the world of beauty started at an early age and kicked off right out of high school as a makeup artist. My dreams of being the next big thing in Hollywood took a detour as I discovered esthetics and became fascinated with how the skin functions. From there I worked post-operatively with patients in a burn trauma unit, helping them care for their skin and conceal their scars. This led to product formulation and the world of aromatherapy where I began my career in product development. As a consultant for several years working with many startups, I quickly became the go-to in helping launch and rebrand product lines, my specialties in product formulation, regulatory compliant copywriting and building cohesive brand personalities. My love of natural and sustainable beauty led me to Biossance, where I happily reside as Senior Marketing Manager for new product development.

    Ever wonder why every time the season changes your skin totally freaks out? Well, colder weather brings drier air that can make keeping your skin supple and hydrated a challenge. Even those of us with oily skin find that suddenly, our skin has more micro-climates than San Francisco. Couple the natural shifts in temperature with heating systems to keep us toasty and our skin’s moisture just doesn’t stand a chance.

    We all know that our skin is the first line of defense against the outside world, but did you know that this protective barrier also has a protective barrier of its own? That’s right, it’s your skin’s natural moisture barrier, which is an important part in keeping you—and your skin—healthy. And we’re all about healthy skin at Biossance.
