About five weeks ago I was sent the BioEffect Daytime Nourishing Day Cream and asked to review it. When I received it I was excited and thought the texture was very nice. I have had a lot going on in my life lately. My husband has been in the hospital for the last four weeks, so this came at a rather good time. I am a lover of the ReLuma line of products and have been using them for a number of months. I also use the E’Shee Cellular Repair serum ($179 in the TIA shop). I emailed TIA before testing the cream to see if it was okay to use the BioEffect Daytime along with the ReLuma serum (from $135 in the TIA shop) or E’Shee serum and got a speedy response. I was told that certain ingredients will disable the active (the EGF), such as high concentrations of alcohol or certain minerals, so it should be fine to use with either product.

Well, right after I started using the product my husband became very ill and to make a rather long story short I didn’t have time for a lot of skincare tools. I decided I would truly put this product to the test and see how it did all by itself. I thought it was very moisturizing and it left my face and neck feeling very soft and firm. The fact that my skin felt no different than when I was using the ReLuma serum and moisturizer was great.

While sitting at the hospital I had my laptop with me and looked into the ingredients that were in this cream and found some preservatives and parabens but nothing too terrible. It had some really good things as well, such as the EGF. While I admit I am more of an amateur when it comes to my knowledge of product ingredients, I just wish it was a bit more natural. The BioEffect EGF serum (from $110) appears to have a better list of ingredients. It is too bad they didn’t try to stay on the same page; still, the day cream is not too bad.

After the five weeks of only using the BioEffect day cream, I saw no difference in my skin. Is this good? YES. When you have spent quite a number of months getting your skin looking great by using the ReLuma line (which isn’t cheap), you get a little nervous using a new product - in fear of undoing the results you have worked so diligently to achieve. So if five weeks of using a product all by its lonesome can maintain those results, it must be pretty good. I will continue to use the BioEffect day cream until it is gone and comment on my final results.

Now my interest is sparked for possibly trying out the BioEffect EGF serum. I best wait until things calm down a bit in my life. I recommend this product, but just remember it is not for around the eyes. For this area, I used my SenZen Double Dose eye cream ($84).
