BioNike Defence XAge Prime Revitalising Smoothing Cream
Light textured and of rapid absorption, contains Rejuvenate SGF™, an innovative complex that stimulates the synthesis and the proper organization of the key elements of the extracellular matrix and of the main skin growth factors, thereby increasing the natural production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, which form a network supporting skin.
Enriched with Lychee extract, having an anti-free radicals effect and protecting against photo-induced stress, it targets early ageing signs and leaves skin smoother, softer & radiant.

What we say:
BioNike is an Italian skincare brand which is available exclusively at Dis-Chem. It might be the new kid on the block here, but it’s been around in Italy since the 60s. It is especially formulated for those with sensitive, allergic and reactive skin and everything is free from potential skin irritants like nickel, fragrances, preservatives and even gluten (I guess if your digestive system doesn’t like gluten it only makes sense that your skin doesn’t like it either. Who woulda thought?). BioNike has various ranges, but the latest addition to their brand, is a new anti-ageing collection called Defence XAGE, which promises to increase collagen and elastin production in your skin to make it firmer.
I tried the BioNike Defence XAge Prime Revitalising Smoothing Cream which is a light (it looks – and feels, actually – like a sort of watery, smooth, lemon ice sorbet) moisturiser that goes on easily, non-greasily, and sinks in immediately. It has a fresh, barely there fragrance, and makes my skin feel clean and moisturised, not weighed down or clogged up as so many anti-ageing moisturisers can make your skin feel. My skin sometimes gets spots (I know! I was a teenager in the eighties – and I didn’t get spots then, luckily for me) when I use heavy products, but BioNike, true to its promise of being free of potential irritants, didn’t affect my skin negatively at all. I liked this product – and since it is also well priced – it gets a good thumbs up from me.
