Why You Should Care About Clean Beauty

Happy last day of the 12 Days of Chriselle! Time sure does fly by when you’re having fun!

For our final day, we partnered up with Biossance! Biossance is one of my absolute favorite clean beauty brands, and this post is very special to me because it’s something that I’ve been thinking about even more so since Colette was born! Although I was very cautious about what skincare I was using during my pregnancy with her and Chloe, I’m even MORE aware of it now that she’s born and we’re a family of four.

I don’t know what it is, but it feels like with Colette, I’ve become even more obsessed with her with each day. Not that I’m favoring her, but it’s almost like I’m able to enjoy her more. I feel like I’m more present and less stressed out about having a newborn since this is my second time around and am 100% more confident with Colette. So, being able to be present and smother her with hugs and kisses is so much fun!

Since I’m always holding her and feeding her, I’m having extremely important skin-to-skin contact with Colette. I’ve become hyper-aware of the products I’m using since I know that whatever I put on my body will instantly transfer onto Colette’s skin. I’ve been using Biossance for a couple years now and was first introduced to them two years ago when I got hooked on their 100% Squalane Oil. Since then, they’ve expanded their line incredibly and I’ve been loving their Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer, too! They’re all plant-based and super moisturizing.

My skin has always been dry, so I’m always cautious about products making my skin feel too oily. If it’s too heavy, I’ll break out. If it’s not moisturizing enough, I’ll still feel dry but with Biossance’s squalane ingredient, this line is the perfect balance- hydrating enough but won’t break me out. Squalane is super hydrating and locks in moisture and doesn’t leave you feeling greasy.

This Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil is a must have for me, and you guys know I love my oils. I also like to mix it into my bb creams or foundations to give me that extra little glow throughout the day. A few drops can add so much radiance to your skin!

I’ve also been into their Squalane + Phyto-Retinol Serum and it’s actually retinol FREE which is great for breastfeeding mamas like myself! It’s plant-based and made with Bakuchiol, which is an extract from Babchi and is found to have retinol-like effects! It’s everything I love about reaping the benefits of retinol without the side effects. This stuff is PERFECT for all you pregnant and nursing mamas out there- or even if you happen to have super sensitive skin!


I love that I’m able to take care of my skin, give it the love and moisture it needs, while still being safe for the baby. Thanks to our partnership with Biossance, we were able to give a generous donation to Baby2Baby.

If you haven’t tried any Biossance’s products yet, I highly recommend you do! In fact, we’re giving away a full set to one lucky reader today!
