The Promise

Committed to making quality skincare available for all, BIMAIO is a Spanish cosmeceutical brand that delivers high concentrations of active ingredients at affordable price points. Key collections include BIMAIO Basics for everyday care, BIMAIO Timeless for anti-ageing, IO-Skin for breakout-prone skin, EGF for regeneration and rejuvenation, and Bright & White to target pigmentation.

The Packaging

The products we tried were housed in a combination of glass and plastic, mostly in black or white with distinctive metallic lettering and accents. If you like rose gold, you’ll like this packaging.

The Ingredients

BIMAIO prides itself on using high concentrations of pharmaceutically active ingredients, including betaine, hyaluronic acid, vitamins E and C, jojoba and rosehip oils, prickly pear and star anise extracts, and EGF olive extract.

How to Use

We tried the Miracle Botupro Gel Flash, suggested for ages 40 and above, and the EGF Multiactiv Night Cream, suggested for ages 30 and above. Miracle Botupro Gel Flash can be applied morning and night after cleansing and toning, while the EGF Multiactiv Night Cream is meant to be the final step in your evening skincare routine.

Best For

Anyone looking for quality skincare that won’t break the bank, and especially those who like to mix and match products based on individual concerns such as ageing and hyperpigmentation.

Our Verdict

We like the fact that BIMAIO focuses on using high-quality ingredients but avoids anything too harsh or potentially irritating. The Miracle Botupro Gel Flash is a clear gel that absorbs quickly and leaves a nice matte finish once dry. While it’s hard to gauge the tensing effect, our skin definitely looked and felt smooth after using. The EGF Multiactiv Night Cream, meanwhile, is a fairly straightforward night cream that hydrates well and doesn’t irritate our sensitive skin. Overall, BIMAIO is a good place to start if you’re looking for a basic skincare regimen regardless of age or skin type.
