If you are a keen follower of my Instagram, you will have seen that I posted about a couple of Bio Glow products that I had in my collection that were only £1 each! I didn’t quite believe it at first that a company could have such affordable cruelty free and vegan products. I decided to contact the company who own Bio Glow, Conquest Personal Care, to verify their position with PETA. They got back to me really quickly to say that they were registered under their parent company the European Perfume Works Co, which verifies their cruelty free status. I was delighted, and even more so when they offered to send me their range of products to try!
Bio Glow products are sold in stores only, in places such as ASDA, Savers, Poundland, The Range and B&M Stores (when we are finally out of lockdown look out for them!) The range includes; hand creams, scrubs, face wash, body lotion, face masks and lip balm. They are usually sold for no more than £1 each which is such an amazing price for anyone on a budget. I was really looking forward to seeing how they performed for the price.
From the products I have tried, my favourites so far are the Cocoa Butter Lotion and the Aloe Vera and Vitamin E & B5 Face and Body Scrub. The cocoa butter smells amazing, it is a thinner consistency than I was expecting but it leaves my skin soft for only £1 for 200ml! The scents are quite artificial smelling which I don’t mind but may be off putting for some!
I also really liked the scrub, it’s light and refreshing and really did help get rid of the dry skin on my face. There will be a bit of controversy with this scrub as it includes walnut powder. I know, dermatologists are probably screaming at me not to use it! The scrub pieces are small and I am careful not to over scrub. Because of the walnut powder I will use it sparingly to be safe and I would not recommend for sensitive skin. I’ve also just started using the Purifying Herbal Face Wash which again, smells really good (all of their products are strongly scented which I personally like) and it leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed.
I don’t really have a bad thing to say about the products in the range for the price. You get a lot for your money and the products in my opinion do what they say they will. I recently tried out some of Aldi’s vegan skincare which wasn’t as cheap and was nowhere near as good!
Of course as you would expect, the products aren’t in luxurious packaging and aren’t as rich in expensive skincare elements as more pricier brands. I’m not going to pretend these products match up to more expensive brands, but for the price point, I would definitely be inclined to give the products a go if you are on a budget. I am already adding them into my skincare routine!
