GREEN MEANS GO...
and i'm here to tell you, when you see that green Codex packaging - GO FOR IT!
I was gifted the Exfoliating Wash + Skin Superfood products a few weeks ago + I have been so, so over the moon happy with these products (and communication with the brand!)Although these products were gifted, the review is 100% my own thoughts + is in no way influenced by the brand. I also only partner with brands who allow me creative freedom, align with my style + is a brand that fits my skincare ethics.
ABOUT THE BRAND + biotechnology

BIA SKIN SUPERFOOD
A hydrating and nourishing cream for face, hands and body. This product is intended to help maintain a healthy moisture barrier, HELLO I LOVE THIS!
Comfrey: Keeps skin healthy and helps shed the drier outer layers of the epidermis.
Heartsease: Hydrates skin and creates a protective film to retain moisture.
Immortelle: Hydrates and rejuvenates skin.
Marsh Mallow: Moisturizes and soothes skin, including dry, rough skin.
Overall, I think these prices are good for the products and what they offer. I tend to occasionally deal with dehydration with my skin and I absolutely felt nourished, hydrated and that these products were truly helping protect my moisture barrier. My skin looked increasingly more supple and gave me a great GLOW! I also love the light exfoliation the cleanser offers as it isn't too harsh since the physical exfoliant ingredient is jojoba (which is also safe for the environment!) This product was again, incredibly nourishing and my skin appeared brighter and more radiant all around. Absolutely will continue to use - thank you so much Codex!
