Check out the Grecian beauty products from BIOselect

 

I always enjoy doing beauty product reviews. I feel like it’s a great way to discover and explore brands and products that I might not otherwise know about. I also read blogs and follow people on social media so I can learn about the latest and greatest beauty products and trends.

The older I get, the more I regret not taking better care of my skin when I was younger. For those readers who are in their 20’s or 30’s… DON’T WAIT! Start taking care of your skin NOW! Wash it, moisturize it, protect it from the sun… whatever you can do, START NOW!

As a teen I was horrible when it came to keeping my skin cleaned. I would actually go to bed with make up. Ugh! Just the thought of it now makes my skin crawl! I was literally just wash my face in the morning before school, slap on more make up and dash out the door. Eww!!!

As a teen I would also put on baby oil and lie out in the sun. Eight “suspicious” mole removals later and I truly wish that I never, ever did that.

In my 20’s and 30’s I didn’t think much about skin care either. I took better care of my skin, but not enough care. I would wash my face in the AM and PM, and add moisturizer, but that was pretty much it. I figure I had plenty of time to worry about wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin tone, dark circles under my eyes and a dull complexion. Ha! I couldn’t be any further from the truth.

Now as a “more mature” woman (I rather not discuss my actual age – I’m still in denial. Ha Ha), I wish I had taken better care of my skin. Sadly, some damage is already done, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t fight the signs of aging and either prevent it or have it take longer to show up on my face.

Now you see why I enjoy doing beauty product reviews.

Several weeks ago I received a wonderful package in the mail from a company called BIOselect.

BIOselect is a Grecian beauty brand that offers all the beauty products you will need. From hair care products like shampoo and conditioner, body products such as body wash and mists, to face care products such as scrubs and hyaluronic boosters, you’ll find the perfect products for you (they also make great stocking stuffers for everyone in the family – not just for women). This brand is a one stop shop for all natural beauty products and daily care.

BIOselect was kind enough to send me many of their products, and when I say many I mean MANY. Thank you BIOselect.

BIOselect has two product lines – Natural and Organic. I didn’t think about that when I took the product photos. In hindsight, I should have grouped the product lines together instead of mixing them up.

I have linked to each product under each photo. I also included the product description off the BIOselect website. In addition, I also included a brief review for each product.

Some products I have not noticed much of a difference (as noted), but they might be the types of products you need to use for several weeks, or a couple of months, before you see the benefits. Not only that, everyone is different, so some people might have different experiences with the products than I did. There is certainly nothing wrong with that.

I’m sorry about the pictures too. They are not the best, but at least you get some idea what the product looks like.

Aloe Vera Multi-Use Soothing Gel for Face & Body

Refreshing aloe gel, with softening action suitable for use after sun exposure or after shaving. Organic aloe, panthenol and organic olive oil hydrate, soothe and protect from oxidative stress. Ideal for irritated skin.

I tried this product on my face, but I found it a bit too “heavy” for me, personally. I do however enjoy this on my body, most especially after shaving.

I use shaving cream and shaving lotion on my skin when I shave, but sometimes I makes my skin feel really dry. Worse yet is that feeling on your skin if you are using a dull razor (that is the worst!). This gel product feels really good after shaving, so much so that it’s the very first thing I do after I dry off (apply the gel to my legs).

Hand & Nail Cream 

Gentle, fast-absorbing cream, with no oily traces, for your hand and nail care. Enriched with natural avocado oil, almond oil, organic olive oil and shea butter, which nourish and sooth the skin. Pomegranate and ginger extracts are strong antioxidants and prevent premature aging, while honey nourishes your skin.

I NEED this product. My hands are ALWAYS dry, even in the summer. My cuticles are horrible too. They are so dry that they start to peel up and bleed. It’s gross (and painful).

This cream feels really good and I feel like it provides excellent moisturizing, even for my cuticles.

I keep this in my purse so that I always have it handy (no pun intended).

It goes on well. It’s not greasy and it absorbs quickly.

Olive Hand Cream 

The special rich texture of this cream offers an intensive hand treatment. Dictamelia*, shea Butter* and calendula oil* hydrate, nourish and protect skin from oxidative damage. Hyaluronic acid and allantoin boost skin’s elasticity and treat chapped hands.

This hand cream is also excellent.

When I think about Olives, I think Olive oil. And when I think Olive oil, I think about grease and greasiness. That is what I thought this cream would be like. It’s not greasy at all.

Of the two hand creams, I think this one is a bit better than the other one. I like how my skin feels after I use this. It feels touchably soft and smooth. It feels good on super dry spots too.

I can’t comment on elasticity because I haven’t noticed a difference. This might be one of those products that you have use regularly for a few weeks to notice a difference. All I know is that this feel so good on my dry skin.

Hyaluronic Booster +

Α fortifying and plumping daily booster with low and medium molecular weight hyaluronic acid that boost elasticity and fortify your skins natural barrier. They moisturize and fill the fine lines around the face, eyes and lips contour area. Day by day your skin feels more toned, plumped, hydrated and it radiates with a healthy glow.

As a moisturizer, this feels good on my skin. I feel like my skin is adequately moisturized. I like how my skin feels after I use it too.

I honestly cannot tell you what Hyaluronic acid is, but I see it advertised on television, and I see many products with these words. Sadly, I have no clue what Hyaluronic Acid really is.

I still see fine lines and wrinkles, but I do feel like my skin is hydrated and maybe even a little plumper (I’m overweight so it’s hard to tell – I’m already plump).

I’m sorry that I cannot be more descriptive with this product. All I can say is that I like it and I like how it feels on my face.

Cleansing Micellar Water

Its light texture, allows easy and effective daily cleansing of both face & eye area demake-up. It is enriched with organic olive leaf – chamomile extracts and provitamin B5 for extra soothing care, antioxidant protection and hydration.

I love micellar water. My daughter first introduced me to it (another brand). If you haven’t used it before, it’s worth trying.

Micellar water is a way to clean your face. It’s like a magnet for dirt and make up. Simply pour some on a cleansing pad, or cotton ball, and gently wipe your skin. You’ll notice your make up coming off with little to no effort.

I prefer to wash my skin the traditional way, but I do use this micellar water when I am in a rush, or if I just want to freshen up my face.

Natural Facial Foam Wash

I cannot find this product on their site. I see a different foaming facial wash, but it’s not the same one. The one I found on the website is a Face Foam Cleanser 3 in 1 product.

The product I was sent to review is really nice. In fact, I use it most every day. A little bit goes a long way.

The Natural Foam Wash I was sent to review is gentle on my skin. I feel like it does a great job removing all the dirt and make up. My face feels almost “shower fresh” when I use it (meaning my face almost feels as clean as it is when I come out of the shower).

Of all the products sent to me, this is in my top three products.

Face Scrub & Mask 2 in 1

Face scrub and mask for deep cleansing, rich in natural ingredients that gently cleanse your skin. Bamboo seeds remove dead cells, while green clay offers deep cleansing and gives  a glowing radiance. Shea butter & natural oils of organic olive, calendula & hemp nourish dry/ dehydrated spots, while vitamin E nourishes and tones your skin.

I have not used this product as a mask, only as a scrub. I use it in the shower instead of at the sink.

This is a good exfoliater. I feel the need to exfoliate 2-3 times per week to remove dead skin cells and give my skin a better appearance. This product does the trick.

Some exfoliaters make your skin feel dry afterwards, but the shea butter and olive in this product makes your skin feeling refreshed and not tight at all. Your skin feels so nice that you won’t want to put make up on afterwards

Foot Cream

Gentle, fast-absorbing foot cream with no oily traces, that treats cracked heels and tired feet. Enriched with natural almond oil, calendula oil, organic olive oil and shea butter, which hydrate and soothe the skin. Ruscus extract and natural mint essential oil have toning properties and offer a refreshing and relaxing effect.

I love, love, love this product. This has to be my most favorite out of all the products sent to me.

I hate having dry feet. Not only is it ugly to look at, but it’s also uncomfortable.

I used a buffer on my feet the first time I used this product, in order to get rid of all the dry skin I could. I’ve been using this product twice a day (morning and night) and so far my feet look and feel good. The dryness has not returned, nor do I feel the need to use the buffer on them.

This is a bit on the greasy side, and does take a bit to absorb. I recommend applying it when you have the time to sit for 5+ minutes to allow it to seep in, otherwise put cotton socks on afterwards so you don’t slip and get hurt.

Hair & Body Fragrance Mist (Dreamy Candy)

An intense, sweet and sensual fragrance. Enriched with sweet almond oil & vanilla extract that pamper your hair and skin.

I love this product. This is my second most favorite BIOselect product. It’s like a body spray, but you can spray it all over your body, including your hair.

I wash my hair every other day, otherwise it would get too dry. In between wash days I spritz this on my hair to get rid of any “dirty hair smell” that might be present (I don’t have an issue with that, but it’s always in the back of my mind that my dirty hair could smell).

This is also great for all over your body (except your face). It smells wonderful!

This mist is available on the BIOselect website in different scents too.

Olive Shampoo for Colored Hair

With Dictamelia*, oligopeptides from sweet almond* & aloe vera*

Natural shampoo for maintaining gloss and color on treated hair, thanks to the antioxidant ingredients of sage water* and rosemary extract*. Aloe Vera juice* nourishes and hydrates the hair shaft, while the oligopeptides of sweet almond* protect the keratin of the hair shaft and restore the healthy glow in treated/damaged hair.

I was worried that this product might leave my hair feeling greasy since it contains olive, but it doesn’t.

My hair tends to get dry, especially the ends. I need a shampoo that moisturizes, but also one that does not weigh my hair down. So far, this shampoo has worked pretty good.

I don’t think it extended the life of my hair color, but in their defense, my hair is porous and hair color doesn’t stay in my hair that long. I also use cheap boxed coloring from the drug store. It would be better to test this out on hair that has been professionally colored.

Hair Toning Shampoo

With Dictamelia*, laurel oil** & vitamins

Mild, SLES free, shampoo specially formulated for the gentle cleansing of the hair and the natural prevention of hair loss. Dictamelia* and provitamin B5 nourish and regenerate the hair shaft. Laurel oil** (Cretan/ certified self growing, organic) is well known for its ability to create healthy, shiny hair, while biotin has a proven action in strengthening the hair bulb and preventing hair loss. Enriched with organic sage water*, which soothes the scalp.

I have not noticed anything out of the ordinary when I tried out this shampoo. I still had hair loss. Maybe not as much (I honestly didn’t compare “before and after” hair loss).

As a shampoo it’s nice. It works well, rinses easily and leaves my hair feeling nice.

This is one of those products that might need to be used for several weeks to get a better feel for it. For that reason I can’t really comment much because I haven’t been using it exclusively for a while. But it is a nice shampoo as far as shampoo goes.

Olive Shower Gel Revitalizing

With Dictamelia*, green tea* & mint**

Thanks to its special natural formula this shower gel cleanses the skin deeply and gently. Dictamelia* and green tea* extract, with antioxidant properties, leave the skin toned and extremely soft while its refreshing scent from mint essential oil** revitalizes the senses. It is a mild, SLES free cleanser, ideal for your skin.

I rather use shower gel than soap. I feel that soap is just way too trying. I also don’t like to deal with slimy shower soap.

This is a nice shower gel. It works well and rinses cleanly with no residue left behind. I enjoy the scent too. It’s lovely.

Olive Shower Scrub

With Dictamelia*, honey* and olive pits

This exfoliating body shower gel with olive and rice* pits removes naturally dead cells leaving the skin fresh and rejuvenated. The combination of Dictamelia*, honey* and aloe vera* extract nourishes the skin leaving it smooth and radiant. Ideal for all skin types.

Just like the exfoliate that I use on my face, I like to exfoliate my body as well. I feel like when you exfoliate and use moisturizer, your skin looks and feels it’s very best.

I exvoliate my body every time I take a shower (every other day). It keeps my skin from looking dry and dull.

This is a nice exfoliate. It’s not hash on the skin, it rinses off well, and it doesn’t make a mess out of the shower.

Naturals Embrace Serum

Natural face serum. Α formula that creates a fine silky textured veil which protects and reinforces skin defense. It contains anti-aging agents made of oat and hyaluronic acid, that offer an instant ‘lifting’ effect, leaving the skin supple and tight. Organic olive oil, olive leaf extract and hemp oil prevent the formation of free radicals, hydrate and nourish the skin. They reduce and prevent the premature aging signs.

Age Embrace Cream

Natural face cream for mature skin. A rich formula that gently nourishes the skin offering a silky softening after feel. It contains anti aging agents made of oat and hyaluronic acid, that offer instant ‘lifting’ effect leaving skin supple and tight. Organic olive oil, olive leaf extract and hemp oil are hydrating, nourishing and prevent the formation of free radicals. They reduce and prevent the premature aging signs.

Rather than comment individually on these products, I’ll combine them.

These are another set of products that I feel like you need to use exclusively for weeks, or even a month or two, before you notice it’s full benefits.

As products, I have no complaints about either of them. They are nice products. They absorb well, they don’t leave any residue, and they feel nice on the skin.

As far as fine lines, wrinkles, and other “mature skin” problems, I have not noticed any differences. That doesn’t meant that they don’t do what they are suppose to do, it just means that I haven’t noticed a difference. Everyone’s skin is different too, so my skin and skin issues might be different than yours, and you might notice a difference quicker than I do. It doesn’t mean that the products don’t work.

I know this is a long review (so many products to review!). Hopefully it gave you a good overview about BIOselect products.
