I can't remember when I started using Bio-Fond, probably 20 years? Anyway, I cheat on it. I like Armani, Chanel, but I always have a stash of GS Bio-Fond. 80% of the time due to ease of use. First of all the finish is AMAZING. Your skin But Better. I apply with either a foundation brush or if in a hurry a good dense sponge. Smooth with a sponge. Powder if its humid, otherwise just go. This has some sort of sunblock in it. I have dry, dry skin, but I look great with this, plus it's all the face products you need in one package. Travels well, well designed compact. Last a long time. I USE this and still get a good 6-8 months' use per compact. I wait till there is a sale and stock up and stash in my Fridge. Recently bought the primer. Its a keeper too.

Crimson Bio-Blush is considered to be a universal color. It comes in a compact with a sponge, and it has the same marvelous cream-to-powder finish as the amazing Bio-Fond Foundation. This color doesn't look like "Crimson" to me. It is what I call Brick Red, and it does not move toward purple tones at all (thank goodness). It is a very "warm" shade. The color is somewhere between Carnelian and Terra Cotta in the pan, and on my skin it's a rusty coral. Maybe that's just how it appears on my skin because I have warm undertones? Whatever the shade technically is, it's not pink, so it suits me. Crimson Blush is a fresh, healthy, natural-looking blush that can be layered for a glamorous effect, or applied gently to achieve a truly natural look. Rather than the "nudes" that are used for "no makeup" looks, I achieve my no-makeup look with red tints on my lips and cheeks. Neutral nudes don't look natural on me at all, and they often make me look tired or ill. Crimson has a vibrancy that works year-round. I don't know how it's achieved, but this blush does not feel heavy or oily at all, unlike any other cream blush I've used. This reminds me a bit of Three Custom Color Specialists Caramel Rose lip & cheek stain. The Crimson shade works with almost all my lipsticks. I have a hard time seeing this as a "universal" shade, because it is such a warm, nearly orange color. The color is great for me, and I think it's a color redheads can wear well.

Gerda Spillmann’s bio-fond foundation is undoubtedly the very finest!It is non-drying and non-oily..just absolutely perfect!I was first introduced to this when I was a professional print model and even though I’m now retired it’s the only foundation I will use.No matter what the temperature..this foundation lasts all day till you wash it off.It’s totally hypoallergenic and comes in a multitude of shades and there are other wonderful products in this line as well.If a store is not located in your area a friendly staff member will help and send you free samples.

This is my HG of HG's right now. I have been using the Bio Fond make up by Gerda Spillman for 6 weeks now and I love it so much I took a chance (a big one for me because I am sooo sensitive and acne prone) and ordered this cream. This cream has improved my oiliness like nothing has ever done before! My skin feels moist and calm and when worn under the bio fond make up it creates the most beautiful poreless yet just enough dew face lookin back in the mirror I have ever seen in my life. This is a treatment product for oily/problem skin but yet it is also the most amazing primer I have used as well. I'm in heaven... THANK YOU GERDA SPILLMAN!! Also if you look at the ingredients I know you'll be thinking it will break you out, but you really can trust these products, this is the highest quality skincare the Swiss have to offer. Still not sold? get the sample for a couple bucks. love it!

Wonderful product. The scent is gentle and natural but doesn't linger; consistency is creamy but not greasy. Doesn't drag when applying. Sinks right in and feels so smooth. I keep it in the fridge for a cooling effect. This also prolongs its life as one pot lasts me for six months, so it's well worth the price. It hasn't caused any irritation for my eczema-prone, sensitive skin and stye-prone eyes. I find this depuffs almost instantly and helps with discolouration around the eyes (dark circles and reddening). Overall it makes me look more rested. I'm on my second jar now, and will continue to buy. Wish this was more widely available!
