IcanGWP Review: If you are looking for a rapid serum to aid wrinkle problems, this Bioeffect serum duo is a nice pair to consider. I will not mention the ingredients of Bioeffect Day Serum or EGF serum in my review. There are only 10 ingredients in it. According to Bioeffect, an Iceland company, revolutionary anti aging skin care products and treatments all featuring our Nobel Prize winning EGF serum. It’s one of the most controversial and even Beautypedia has removed the reviews 😊 BIOEFFECT’s groundbreaking EGF Serum was chosen by the publication as one of the best ‘cures all’ anti-aging products in Wallpaper magazine, plus, ES magazine, Harrods Magazine, Tatler and more. We are supposed to use this day serum during the day and no moisturizer is required. EGF serum is for nighttime routine.

The clear gel serum has no odor and is very lightweight. The gel spreads and absorbs beautifully. It has a nice primer-like texture. The finish is a little bit dewy.

The results?

This is the best skincare I have put on my face EVER this year. It plumped the skin and it’s extremely fast. It really worked and fine lines are visibly lessened. I don’t see the difference in terms of brightening or hydrating. The cheeks and forehead seem to be the most fuller. Really amazing.

Bioeffect EGF Serum Review 3ml | Full size $160

Ingredients: Glycerine, Water, Sodium hyaluronate, Tromethamine, Sodium chloride, Hordeum vulgare seed extract, EGF (Barley sh-oligopeptide-1)

IcanGWP Review: The night time serum is heavier than the day time serum. I prefer the day time on my combination skin. I feel that the day time serum did better so far.

The price is quite steep. I do not recommend these products for anyone under 30, it may not be necessary if you don’t have aging problems yet. If you are thinking about Botox, filler, and more abrasive facials, just go to Cos Bar and try this magic serum first. I wouldn’t apply these products on any moles or psoriasis area.

Here’s the latest publication reported from their site: A recent, independent, scientific study, led by Dr. Martina Kerscher, demonstrates the clear anti-aging effect of Icelandic skin care sensation BIOEFFECT EGF SERUM. A world-renowned expert on dermatology and cosmetic science, Dr. Kerscher heads the Division of Cosmetic Sciences at the University of Hamburg. The author/editor of numerous books and articles, she also co-edits two of Germany’s leading dermatology journals, Journal der Deutschen Dermatologischen Gesellschaft (JDDG) and Der Hautarzt. Dr. Kerscher presented the results of her study, to be published in a peer-reviewed, scientific journal, at the 12th Anti-Aging Medicine World Congress in Monaco earlier this year.
The unique scientific setup of the study was designed to specifically answer the question of whether the topical application of cellular activators can revitalize age-related changes in the skin.
Every woman participating in the study applied BIOEFFECT EGF SERUM to one half of her face and an identical product without the EGF cellular activator to the other half. The study ran for eight weeks, during which time participants applied the serum twice a day. To rule out any effect anticipation could have on results, the study was double-blinded, meaning that none of the women in the study, nor the scientists in charge of measuring results, knew which half was which. Efficacy was assessed by standardized photography and biophysical measurements to evaluate skin topography, density, and thickness.
The results show that the depth of wrinkles decreased significantly compared to baseline after application of BIOEFFECT EGF SERUM over a period of two months. Furthermore, skin thickness increased by more than 60% and skin density increased by more than 30% compared to baseline.

Cos Bar has the full 11 product line from Bioeffect and they are the only retailer that offers Bioeffect gift with purchase in the US. Any BioEffect purchase of $160 or more.

Cos bar review icangwp beauty blog cle de peau beaute

IcanGWP Review: This is a best-selling cult favorite emulsion from Cle de Peau Beaute. People love it and give great reviews at all high-end beauty retailers including Cos Bar. We can use this product as a final step after moisturizer, just a few drops on the cotton pad.

I love the milky scent in this emulsion from Cle de Peau Beaute, it’s so pure and young. There are two best-selling Emulsions from Cle de Peau Beaute which is this product for night time and Cle de Peau Beaute Protective Fortifying Emulsion Spf 22 for day time. I recommend the latter. The texture is everything, it’s so heavenly cushiony and elegant. Both emulsions have the following key ingredients: Golden Silk Essence – Combats loss of clarity, translucence and suppleness. Japanese Pearl – Leaves skin satin smooth. Theanine – Evens skin tone. Scutellaria Baicalensis Extract – A traditional herb is known to support skin’s beauty. If you love the idea of combining brightening and extra hydration booster into one luxurious feel emulsion, then you can reach for the Cle de Peau Beaute Protective Fortifying Emulsion Spf 22.

R+Co High Dive Moisture + Shine Creme Review 0.5Fl oz | Full size $29

Formulated to smooth and seal the hair, it moisturizes, softens and drowns out frizz. Good for: Styles that favor moisture over hold; smooth-textured looks.

Fragrance: SERIOUS GAZE – A bright oriental composition. Juniper Berries, Blood Orange, Rhubarb, Leather Accord, Violet, Dark Woods

Cos bar review icangwp beauty blog r co

IcanGWP Review: The high performance haircare brand R+Co lives up its name. There is a nice amount of goodies: Sunflower Seed Extract, Vitamin E, Argan Oil, Sodium PCA and Vitamin B% that will act as an antioxidant to help damage and deliver superior hydration to restore vitality to hair. Not only the distinctive formula but also how easy to revive our dreadfully lackluster hair in a blink. I have quite dry hair now from my trip – beach and swimming pool are not easy on the hair. The shine crème absorbs and hydrates the hair while adding beautiful soft silky gloss on the hair. It’s not heavy nor sticky. This product has the most immediate effects on your hair – it softens and drowns out frizz. My hair seems recovered and happy again. So many reviewers with damaged hair really recommend this product. It doesn’t help to hold the hair.

If you are using a lot of hair styling products, the scent of this product is definitely a good one. Seious Gaze is a beautiful mild bright oriental that invigorates and refreshes the hair and the senses.

This product is recommended for Medium to coarse and unruly hair. For moisture and shine, doubles as a leave-in conditioner. If you have fine hair or need less moisturizer and lighter weight, consider R+Co Twister Curl Primer or R+Co Waterfall Moisture + Shine Lotion.

Revive Foaming Cleanser Review 7mL | Full size $75

Cos bar review icangwp beauty blog revive

IcanGWP Review: If you are looking for a delicate cleanser for winter months or dry skin, Revive foaming cleanser might be a good candidate for you. The mousse texture cleanser from Revive is so smooth to touch. The fresh green scent with a hint of summer flowers is refreshing. There are pink beads that melt while using it. It’s medium lather and the foam is whipped up really well. I like when face cleanser does this, so that we can avoid rubbing our face.

The skin felt hydrated and I can see a big difference when using this foam compared to others in that my natural oil still present – in a good way. It’s non-drying and the foam didn’t strip out all protective oils from the skin.

And that’s my Cos Bar Gift Bag experience!
