Haul - Bionike Defence codeXage skincare

When I went to the beauty fair at Dischem, my friend Sharon, who is a sales assistant, told me about the moisturiser I used which was sold with a GWP (gift with purchase).  I told her that I had enough moisturiser so I womt purchase until my one is finished.  I did however pick up a mascara and a concealer / corrector (reviewed in previous blog post of mine).  Both of these are from the Bionike line of products.  I received the cutest umbrella as a GWP.

So I went home, I checked my moisturiser and it was almost finished and  didn't realize it.
So I returned to the store and realised what a good deal the pack actually was.
You get the mosituriser (almost R300 alone), the eyecream (which won an award last year) and the mask.  All of these cost R495.  What a deal. Inside the box was an elegant clutch bag.

Above is a link of each of the products displayed above on the Bionike website.
These products are nikkel free.  They where developed by and for people with sensitive and intolerant skin.
That means no breakouts!  Just excellent skincare with added anti-aging benefits.

This moisturiser literally saved my skin which was dry and dehydrated regardless of what I used on it.  Dry skin also ages faster.  This is a repairing moisturier and that is exactly what it has done.  I cant rave enough about this product enough.

The eyecream, like mentioned above, has won an award, so It must be very good,  I have dark circles and the skin under my eyes is very dry, so I am looking forward to giving this a try.  If it is anything like the moisturiser, I will be happy with the end result.

As for the mask, it is another Bonus in this pack.  According to the website it is advised for reducing wrinkles and fine lines, strengthening skin elasticity, helping the skin to restore its natural youth code.  So I am looking forward to trying this as well.

Thanks for reading, xoxo


  1. Is it good?? I bought the DEFENCE Skin Lightening Cleanser :)

    1. Hi Annie. Sorry for the late reply. I have used a number of the Bionike products and I love them. It literally saved my skin when I was going through hormonal acne. I have not tried the Lightening Cleanser though. I stopped looking for products for acne skin, and started looking for products for sensitive skin and it worked wonders. It nickel free as well. Please let me know how it works for you. Regards

  2. An impressive share! I've just forwarded this onto a co-worker who had been doing a little research on this. And he in fact bought me lunch due to the fact that I stumbled upon it for him... lol. So let me reword this.... Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending time to discuss this matter here on your blog.

  28. I am a massive fan of Bionike / Acteen products. I suffer from acne, have done for 5 yrs now and I'm in my mid twenties. I stumbled across acteen whilst on holiday in Italy and couldn't believe how fantastic it is. I've tried so many cream and lotions from the dermatologist which haven't worked so I am so happy. Although....... I cannot find Bionike for sale ANYWHERE!! Not online or on the shelf. Could anyone help me please? I live in Canterbury, Kent.

    1. Hi. Sorry for the late reply. Yes Bionike is not readily available to everyone. They do have a website, which has been updated lately, so I am not sure if the link I posted is still the same. Look to see if there is a contact number on their site. Alternatively maybe a friend in a different country could buy it for you and have it shipped to you. But this will become a hassle if you will need products often and it will become a costly affair to ship all the time. But Bionike truly is worth it.
