Niche but with an air of friendly inclusivity, the Jane Scrivner line of skincare is straightforward, innovative, and unfortunately, not easy to find Stateside. Ok, it’s borderline impossible. Having drooled forever over British bloggers’ instagram posts, the uber kind Jane herself surprised me with a couple of generous packages last year. Yes, the Core Nourishing Cleanser is totally worth the hype. That Bioluronic Buzz 2000 hydrator though. OMG.
There isn’t a day we aren’t reminded about the importance of Hyaluronic Acid to our skincare regimen. It binds moisture, holds 1,000 times its weight in water, and plumps the skin for a fresher, more youthful appearance. Not all HA formulas, however, are created equal. The Jane Scrivner masterpiece uses a bio-fermented version of the superhero ingredient (2000mg of this vegan friendly potion to be exact) and combines it with a most intriguing botanical.
Known for its ability to reduce muscle tension when applied topically, Spilanthes Acmella extract is the line smoothing force in this unique formula. Dubbed the ‘Toothache Plant’ or ‘Buzz Button’ (hence the name), it inhibits contractions of the facial muscles, therefore delivering Botox-like results: a smoother, more relaxed looking complexion. While not as dramatic as the medical procedure, the improvement in the skin’s texture is impressive within days. Contributing to its flawless performance are soothing Organic Aloe Vera base, purifying Salicylic Acid, and toning Frankincense Oil.
How & When
Richer than most serums, Bioluronic Buzz 2000 hovers between liquid and gel in consistency. Fast absorbing and deeply hydrating, I enjoy cocktailing it with a Vitamin C serum during the day or a facial oil at bedtime. This remarkable treatment is so much more than a drink of water for your skin; it always delivers a much needed and appreciated anti-aging boost to my routine. For days when your complexion appears dull or saggy, I recommend your hunting down a bottle. You may consider the £59 price tab steep, but you’re getting 135g of product, which is more than quadruple the standard industry size for a facial serum.
