How does the Bio Nutricell Benefit You?
- Antioxidants: Various natural but potent antioxidants are included to protect the cells from oxidative damage.
- Anti-ageing: A number of the ingredients have well documented anti-ageing properties, with some improving elasticity and others helping in the development of collagen.
- Soothing & Anti- inflammatory: Soothing, calming and anti-inflammatory ingredients are included to alleviate or prevent irritated skin conditions.
- Sun Protection: Whilst natural sun protective ingredients are included and will assist in providing a very low level of natural sun protection (due to the small amount of the product used), high UV exposure will require additional protection.
- Assists the body’s Melanin Production: Adequate melanin production generally results in less stress on the skin during sun exposure, reduced tissue damage and natural protection of the body by improving natural pigments. Melanin works by absorbing UV rays and dissipating them as heat.
- Healing, regeneration, cell building: Healing and regeneration are essential in maintaining a healthy skin.
Please note that this approach takes time, and even if your skin is producing melanin optimally you should avoid the sun completely when the UV index is high (between 11am and 3pm in summer months)
In addition, Gaia have included some ingredients that are known to assist with burns and others known for their ability to help regenerate skin damaged by the sun.

20 out of 23 people would recommend this product22/12/2020, By suziIt's a bit oily and smudges my eye-liner.11/12/2020, By SuziSmells lovely. A little oily, and smudges my eyeliner as a result, so I don't use it as often as I'd like.09/11/2020, By SarahI really liked this product, even ended up using all over my body. It has a strong smell, but of natural products (herb- like). Nourishing and quick- absorbing.09/09/2020, By JoanetWhat a wonderful light weight lotion, absorbs quickly and good for the dry high veld areas.13/07/2020, By SaraFeels like it feeds the skin. Like the smell. Some people will be out off the consistency.07/12/2019, By AlexandraI quite like the strong herby scent but found that my dry skin felt much tighter and drier than usual straight after using this product. I’m still using it as I hope it’s doing some good regardless, but have to follow it with a rich moisturizer. It takes a bit of practice to avoid squirting clothes/wall/floor!06/11/2019, By LisaMy absolutely favorite face cream. I love the smell and leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated.
Feels like a skin treatment every time I use it.
Best cream ever.30/10/2019, By TaniyaReally dissatisfied with this product. It’s not nourishing, has left my skin feeling dry and dehydrated. Not sure if it’s a bad batch but some parts are lumpy and others runny.19/09/2019, By RobynPerhaps I got a frot bottle but despite vigorous shaking it wouldn't blend properly, was gritty and left residue and discoloured my skin09/08/2019, By CindyI absolutely adore this product. It leaves my skin super smooth and soft and removes all dryness and flaking. I have very sensitive skin but this toner actually calms my skin and gives it a radiant glow. It burns for a couple of seconds after applying it but it goes away quickly. It is a fantastic exfoliation and definitely brightens up my skin and makes it look amazing!27/06/2019, By CRSI'm only mid-30s, have olive skin, and have been struggling with pigmentation for a few years. I've spent a lot of money on products and treatments, but in the short time I've been using this product range I've noticed a bigger difference in the overall texture of my skin and the lightening of my pigmentation than any other product I've tried. It is also affordable in comparison with other products. The first few days the smell was a bit overwhelming but now it is fine, my husband says I smell like "sweets". It is a liquid, so need to only use a little as it spreads well. I leave it for a minute or two before applying my foundation which then just glides on. I am happy with this product and will continue using it.28/05/2019, By BaviliciousThis product has mixed reviews and I was sceptical when I bought it. But after trying it, I have found my go-to product for my skin that I was looking for!17/05/2019, By PippaJust the best stuff!11/02/2019, By PippaOnto second bottle and I'm hooked! feels so great and light on skin, not oily but still a perfect amount of a moisturising feel. I really love the smell too12/01/2019, By AnneI was looking for an organic, well priced day cream when a friend of mine recommended this one. After reading the reviews, I decided to try it, and it does not disappoint. Rather, I love it; love the texture (not greasy), love the smell and you don't need a lot so the bottle goes a long way. Will keep using this cream.14/10/2018, By LaurenAfter reading all of the great reviews, I wanted to try this for myself. I have sensitive skin and and a bit of unevenness or slight redness in places. I’m very happy with the results, my skin looks more even and glowing (and my husband has even commented). I use it in the mornings and often follow with a tiny bit of my richer esse moisteriser if my skin feels like it needs some extra nourishment.30/08/2018, By GinnyEven after using for just a few days it makes my skin feel wonderfully soft and smooth. I wasn't crazy about the initial smell but have gotten used to it now and the way it makes my skin feels is worth it. The smell dissipates after a while anyway. Lovely product. Definitely going to keep using it.20/08/2018, By SallyNourishing day cream. Have ordered my second bottle which says it all! Do not be put off by the liquid type lotion...I thought, how can this work?! It does! And with it being 100ml it is very well priced. It goes a long way.19/03/2018, By FrankeI am usually very sceptical about “miracle result” reviews, but this has honestly improved the texture of my skin after just one week. It absorbs easily and smells lovely.03/02/2018, By SuzieI am only one my 1st bottle of this, and understand improvements will take time, but am very happy with the results thus far. It is very nourishing and moisturising.
I have extremely sensitive skin but have had no reactions to this product.
I found the fragrance a bit overwhelming at first but have really enjoy it now.
May post an updated review in a few months and will order some of the supporting Gaia products with the next order in the hopes of speeding things up.23/11/2017, By HantieAs with the toner, ordered this product for myself, only to give it to a friend who had a bad skin due to stress. After three weeks, I wish we did before and after pics. The only way anyone would believe it. Needless to say, I ordered it again. This time, I will so not share!24/08/2016, By TarynThis face cream is wonderful for combination or dry skin. The oils take a minute or two to be warmed up on your skin before they are absorbed. It is a good base for makeup.
One caution, if you wear white clothing, be careful as the product will rub off onto it and cause yellow staining.16/05/2016, By GerdaFantastic product - my second order of this! My skin feels great and refreshed and full of moisture. Lovely natural product, and the service is outstanding as well. Put my order in the morning, got it just after lunch.
