Key Ingredient

All of Beigic products contain certified, premium organic Fair Trade green coffee bean oil, sourced from Peru.  Coffee beans contain amino acids which help smooth and refine skin texture, provide pore care and are rich in antioxidants and vitamin E, helping to repair damaged skin.  Coffee bean oil can also brighten your skin and aid in the production of collagen and  elastin. The caffeine in coffee helps boost blood circulation, bringing a natural glow to your skin.  For hair care products, the rich antioxidants in coffee help protect your hair from UV rays while the natural caffeine stimulates the scalp, making hair healthy and stronger.  The amino acids nourish not only the hair, but the scalp as well.

The Number

I was initially puzzled by the number that is printed on the label.  I was thinking, is Beigic getting all hipster on me and it means something that only the cool kids know?  Or was this the final version number of the formula ~ did they go through 16 past versions of the Regenerating Oil before getting a perfect version at the seventeenth try?  Nope, that isn’t what it means and it is so simple, I feel foolish.  The number means how many ingredients are in the product.

Scalp Revival Purifying Scrub with twenty-nine ingredients is a hair scrub and shampoo that provides deep-cleansing care while exfoliating, controls sebum and provides volume and elasticity to your hair. It contains sea salt ~ which provides the scrubbing with its natural exfoliation. Antibacterial, anti-inflammatory sacha inchi seed oil which is rich in omega 3 and 6 and  anti-inflammatory, soothing relief care menthol reduces excessive oils and provides cooling relief. Moisturizing panthenol repairs while providing anti-irritation and anti-inflammation benefits⁣.  This also has oil absorbing charcoal powder along with several essential oils: geranium, bergamot, eucalyptus and lavender.

This grainy gray scrub is very creamy and as I apply it to my wet hair, it lathers up quite a bit! This provides a cooling sensation and it has a geranium scent with a touch of wintery cold menthol. I am happy this is a shampoo as many of the scalp care products are just watery rinse off treatments, not shampoos. My scalp feels so clean and refreshed⁣

Ingredients: sea salt, water, potassium cocoyl glycinate, disodium laureth sulfosuccinate, disodium cocoamphodiacetate, cocamidopropyl betaine, glyceryl stearate/PEG-100 stearate, cocamide MEA, glyceryl stearate SE, sodium benzoate, menthol, xanthan gum, coffee arabica (coffee) seed oil, simmondsia chinesis (jojoba) seed oil, plukenetia volubilis seed oil, potassium sorbate, citric acid, hibiscus sabdariffa flower extract, caffeine, panthenol, argania spinosa kernel oil, butylene glycol, tocopheryl acetate, pelargonium graveolens flower oil, citrus aurantium bergamia (bergamot) peel oil, eucalyptus globulus leaf oil, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) oil, CI 77499, charcoal powder cosDNA

Damage Repair Treatment Mask with thirty-two ingredients is a creamy pink hair mask containing nourishing, moisturizing hair strengthening  and  repairing argan oil, hydrating polyquaternium-10 and hair repairing panthenol along with antioxidant vitamin E.  This has the spicy floral geranium scent that I love so much!

This treatment is pink and very creamy and thick, but it is not so heavy that it  weighs my hair down. If you have really dry or coarse hair, you might need to add a lot more in your hair. However,  for my fine, oily hair, this is more than enough for me. It really helps smooth and moisturize my hair without adding oils to weigh it down while providing a nice shine to my hair. Plus the scent is amazing!⁣

Ingredients: water, isoproply myristate, glycerin, proplene glycol, cetyl alcohol, glyceryl stearate/PEG-100 stearate, cocamide MEA, behentrimonium chloride, behentrimonium methosulfate, stearyl alcohol, cetearyl alcohol, argania spinosa kernel oil, cetrimonium chloride, sodium benzoate, glyceryl stearate SE, potassium sorbate, coffee arabica (coffee) seed oil, guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride, polyquaternium-10, citric acid, panthenol, caffeine, polyacrylate-13, polyisobutene, polysorbate 20, sorbitan isostearate, tocopheryl acetate, pelargonium graveolens flower oil, citrus aurantium bergamia (bergamot) peel oil, eucalyptus globulus leaf oil, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) oil, CI 77491 cosDNA

I won the Correcting Exfoliator in a giveaway from Beigic last year.   I love my scrubs and this one is amazing!!   Not only does this have coffee bean oil, but coffee seed powder.  Beigic does not use recycled coffee seed powder used for coffee making.  The powder is highly concentrated with active ingredients. Coffee seed powder and sugar help with physical exfoliation, while sugar, coconut oil and glycerin provide hydration. Kaolin clay and arginine provide detox care, with the clay absorbing excess oil.  There is also eucalyptus in here,  providing anti-bacterial care for blemish prone skin. This is a sticky, gloppy product that SMELLS wonderful!! I love the deep lush coffee scent with vanilla  and every time I use it, I want a cup of rich coffee to drink

To use, I apply to a clean damp face, then massage for 30 seconds, then rinse off. I sometimes leave it on for 5 minutes as well, as my oily skin could use some more detox care. This coffee scrub not only smells and looks great, it works too ~ my skin texture is smoother and brighter. It also leaves my skin hydrated as well ~ there is no stripping or drying action on my skin.  I totally recommend this fantastic coffee scrub!  Just don’t eat it.

Ingredients: glycerin, water, coffea arabica (coffee) seed powder, sucrose, kaolin, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, caprylic/capric triglyceride, polysorbate 20, 1,2-hexanediol, coffea arabica seed oil, eucalyptus globulus leaf extract, camellia sinensis leaf extract, prunus armeniaca (apricot) fruit extract, carbomer, arginine, tocopheryl acetate, vanillin cosDNA

Regenerating Oil has won Allure Korea’s 2019 Best of Beauty Editor Picks and I can see why!  This vegan oil not only contains the antioxidant rich green coffee bean oil, but contains a lot of other nourishing oils:

  • Jojoba is both a moisturizing and skin softening, an emollient and is used in many skin care products. It helps skin cells attract and keep moisturize and it helps penetrate your skin easily, aiding in your skin’s increased flexibility and elasticity.
  • Sweet almond oil lubricants your skin, leaving a soft, smooth and glowing appearance. It is very mild and your skin will absorb it quickly, protecting your skin from drying out, due to its high content of fatty acids ~ it will also strengthen your skin barrier function as well.
  • Apricot kernel oil is rich in Antioxidants, this oil will prevent and combat damage by free radicals. It also provides nutrition and support to the skin. 
  • Coconut oil heals, soothes, reduces flaking skin, softens and is an antioxidant.  
  • Olive oil is full of antioxidants, such vitamins A and E, and helps reduce inflammation, prevents acne, doesn’t clog pores and helps soften and condition your skin
  • Avocado oil is full of minerals and vitamins, essential fatty acids, proteins and beta carotene, making it a fantastic antioxidant and anti-aging ingredient.  
  • Grape seed oil can penetrate the skin better than most oils, so it helps boosts and carry the other oils into your skin.  It provides antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial benefits,  making this a great oil for oily skin.
  • Argan oil is chock full of nutrients, such as fatty acids and vitamin E.  Its antioxidant properties help restore skin elasticity, leaving your skin feeling softer and plumper.  It helps balance your skin by adding natural moisture while healing damaged skin and reducing inflammation. 
  • Rosehip oil contains vitamin A, promoting healthy skin cell rejuvenation, repairing scar and sun damaged skin, along with vitamin C.  It hydrates your skin and doesn’t clog pores
  • Wheat germ oil is rich in ceramides, vitamins A, D and E and essential fatty acids and it is a regenerative oil, helping to promote cellular turnover, improving the skin barrier and repairing damaged skin.  It is very moisturizing and skin smoothing. 

This also contains antioxidant vitamin E and quick penetrating plant-based squalane, which combats free radicals and promotes cell growth.

Now, with all of those oils, I was a bit scared to put this on my oily skin, but I found that applying it on a damp clean face was the best way for me to use this lightweight oil. The oil and water together helped my skin absorb it faster and instead of a greasy face, my skin was glowing with no residue or clogged pores. Since I have been working from home these past 2 months, I rarely wear makeup and I don’t care if my skin is a bit shiny if it is from good skincare. ⁣

As I don’t need a lot of this oil, I use it in other ways ~ this is where my homage to Jude at Fifty Shades of Snail comes in. Whenever I use eyepatches, I first put some of this oil under my eyes and then apply the patches over the oil. This adds in so much extra nourishing and moisturizing care. In case you want to know what this smells like, Beigic Regenerating Oil does have several essential oils ~ geranium, bergamot and  orange ~ and it does smell like a warm, herbal geranium.⁣

The other way I use this oil is another tip from Jude ~ I received this huge bottle of Chemistry Brand Hyaluronic Concentrate from Deciem and it is a lovely lightweight gelly concentrate of hyaluronic acid, glycerin, snow fungus, red algae and betaine ~ all hydrating ingredients with anti-inflammatory tamarind⁣.

Since the skin on my body is VERY dry, I wanted to add more to Hyaluronic Concentrate. After reading Jude’s review on this product, I started adding a few drops of Beigic Regenerating Oil to the mix ~ it creates a lovely watery oil that leaves “water droplets” on my skin as I apply it. It absorbs nicely leaving behind soft, supple skin with a nice radiant sheen. Again, it’s not greasy or oily! I plan on getting my skin hydrated and soft ~even though no one but my cat  will see it ~ playing my sad violin 🎻  

Ingredients: caprylic/capric triglyceride, olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, coffea arabica (coffee) seed oil, prunus armeniaca (apricot) kernel oil, persea gratissima (avocado) oil, vitis vinifera (grape) seed oil, prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil, argania spinosa kernel oil, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, rosa canina fruit oil, triticum vulgare (wheat) germ oil, tocopheryl acetate, vegetable squalane, pelargonium graveolens leaf oil, citrus aurantium bergamia (bergamot) peel oil, citrus sinensis peel oil expressed ⁣ cosDNA

And finally, Softening Body Lotion, which I REALLY NEED THIS. My body is SO dry, even though my face is so oily!  The coffee bean oil will help protect my skin barrier from any external irritants while leaving a nice sheen behind.  This also has plant based moisturizing squalane, helping to penetrate  and absorbs rapidly into your skin and has antioxidant properties.  Anti-inflammatory panthenol is a natural humectant, which retains moisture and hydrates the skin. It also is a good lubricant on the skin, making skin look soft and smooth.  Nourishing, moisturizing coconut oil, raspberry seed oil and olive oil help keep skin hydrated and plumped up

This has essential oils of rosemary, bergamot and Mandarin orange and this smells like sharp citrus herbal scent.  It is so nice and calming, and the scent is very unisex ~ good for all ages and genders!  I love the texture on this ~ it is like a creamy lotion and it has a cooling sensation as I apply it on my skin.  It thins out and absorbs quickly.  My skin feels very soft and supple and I can really feel how smooth my skin is.  This is a great moisturizer!
