BioEffect EGF Serum

Bio Effect EGF Serum
I’ve been testing this little sample of goodness for about the past four to five weeks and I am a tad obsessed.  This was a forgotten sample that I dug out for my Project 10 Pan Update (post out here).

What the website says:

“BIOEFFECT EGF Serum is next-generation anti-ageing serum that improves the appearance and health of your skin by encouraging the skin to repair its own cells.  Its key ingredient is Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF), a substance which occurs naturally in human skin and which has the ability to speed up the rate of cell turnover within the skin.”

My Opinion

I am in love, which from me, is a serious compliment – we all know I’m a tad fussy when it comes to serums!  I’ve been using this most evenings after my cleanser and toner (either a refreshing toner or exfoliating toner).  I have seen a noticeable improvement in the overall appearance of my skin.  My skin tone has started to even out and the finer lines are less obvious – not that I’m particularly worried by wrinkles.  I apply a few drops to my finger tips and then smooth over my face.  This applies nicely and spreads well over my face.  It leaves my skin nice and soft the next morning my skin is pretty much glowing with loveliness.  The only down side to this product, the price.  It is an eye watering £125 for 15ml from the website.  Although based on the results I’m not surprised!  I would say it would last for quite a while, I have been using a 2.5ml sample four weeks and I still have about two weeks left.  However, based on the fact I’m on a seriously tight budget at the minute, I just cannot justify spending that money, maybe in future.  So for now,  I have been alternating with my hydraluron in a bid to make this last a bit longer but still maintain the results!Controversy

Something I should have added and after a comment from the ever lovely Rebecca from Rouge pout, I decided to make this update.  There is worry over this serum causing cancer, or increasing risk.  This serum does not cause skin cancer, however, it may possibly aid the growth of skin cancer once it is there.  For more information on this and an article I found very useful on clarifying the matter, click here.  You can make the decision for yourself.  We surround ourselves with cancer causing chemicals on a daily basis.  I have reduced the amount that I come into contact with and I will always try to reduce this amount.  I have had my own brushes with skin cancer and have the scars to prove it, however, I understand that this product is not absorbed very deeply.  I am also very aware of my skin and I keep a check on any changes.  There is a reason I am this pale!  It is entirely up to you on the products you use.  Always do your research on ingredients (I did after using this for a week, I know I should’ve checked sooner).

Thank you for reading!
