Biokem Face Cream - review


*It's been a little while since I've had the opportunity to review a product, so when the lovely people over at Naturelle Cosmetics sent me through some Face Cream to review, I was really chuffed!

You know I love to be a guinea pig!

My 50ml pot of Biokem Face Cream popped through the post and I was eager to try!

I was sent the sensitive face cream to try out. Which actually is a result because I always prefer to buy sensitive products for my skin.

Not because my skin is overly sensitive or anything. It used to be more sensitive when I was younger, but I guess as I've got older, my skins kinda started to harden up! LOL!

For some reason I always think sensitive products will be more gentle on my skin. How true that is I don't know. Either way, I was really happy receiving this particular face cream.


When opening the tub my first thoughts were, oh, I'm not sure of the smell. Now, don't get me wrong it's not a strong smell and it doesn't linger on the skin, but it does have a 'smell' to it, which I just can't put my finger on. It is organic cream, so I'm probably smelling the organicy (if that's a word! LOL!) aroma. It's nothing off putting, don't worry and it wouldn't stop me using it or anything - I just wish I could think what it reminds me of!


The cream has a slight pinky colour to it, which I'm guessing is because the face cream is also aimed at people with Rosacea, as well as sensitive skin.

On the website under the description for the Biokem Face Cream, which you can find here, it also claims to help towards dryness and itchiness due to skin dehydration.

I have been using this cream everyday for nearly two weeks. I use it in the morning after washing my face and I have also been using it as a night cream too, once I've washed away the days make-up.

When applying the cream it feels like it's going to dry quite heavy on the skin, but it really doesn't.

My skin stays completely moisturised and soft all day.


I do like using Biokem as a night cream too. When I've had face creams in the past that state they are for the night, I find them really greasy and I just don't seem to get on with them. But the Biokem keeps my skin soft all night and doesn't feel tight or dry when I wake up in the morning.

I do actually really like this face cream. My skin does feel completely moisturized and even though I don't have Rosacea, my skin tone is a little uneven and I feel it is starting to balance out. Which is actually another thing stated on the website, that Biokem helps restore the skins balance.


I'm looking forward to continuing using this product and I think it will now be a staple in my everyday beauty routine. I love the versatility of it and that our guys can use it too! The packaging is neutral and simple, which is great so that it can appeal to everyone! Not just for us girlies!


If you fancy giving Biokem Face Cream ago yourself you can find it here.
Along with lot's of other natural and organic beauty products!


Let me know how you get on!

Getting motivated to exercise

Getting motivated to exercise for me is probably one of the hardest things. I don't know why, as in my head I'd love to be one of these fitness girls you see all over Instagram all happy, bouncy and always raring to go. I always feel good after I've exercised so I really don't know why it takes me ages to get myself motivated. I'm 39 now and I know I need to lose weight. I'm not drastically overweight it's more of a personal thing. The usual story that my clothes are getting snugger, I'm out of breath a lot quicker after just doing the simplest tasks and I'm snoring a lot more at night, which my doctor did say could be because I've put on a few extra pounds. Over the last 9 years I've actually put on 20 lbs! That's crazy isn't it. The weight has literally been sneaking up on me and the fat has gradually been moving in a pound at a time. Crafty little thing really.  It has got to the stage where enough is enough and I need, probably fo

If you've been here a while you'd know that this blog was originally called Suncream and Sparkles ~ which I have written about why I changed my blog name  here . Even though I do love my new blog name and I don't regret changing it I do wish I had taken more time and consideration in the very beginning when first starting my blog, or at least before buying the domain. You see blogging, even now for me who's been doing it for a fair few years, it really is a constant learning curve where you're always discovering new ways and new ideas to tweak and improve your blog.

Restaurante Jardin, La Zenia, Spain

Last week after passing Restaurante Jardin for the last six years we actually got round to venturing in. And we are so pleased we did, the only regret is that it's taken us six years to do so! Located just off the Carretera de Villamartin roundabout near La Zenia's Mcdonalds and the Notary you'll find this gem of a restaurant. With a varied mix of Sushi, rice and noodles, teriyaki dishes, Bangkok style ribs, crispy beef, garlic prawns, to name just a few, they also have more simple items such as chicken balls (nuggets), fried cheese, mushrooms - which are very tasty and potato wedges. Even though Restaurante Jardin is an all you can eat buffet it is sit down table service, with a menu and your food is made to order. For €11.95 per person (€6.95 for children) we found it extremely good value for money. We had such a mix and didn't really have anything in any particular order. The dishes aren't huge, but still a decent size and I actually like them being
