Post-Sun Beauty Products: My Picks

I know that it is already September, which means the end of summer, and I am posting about the after-sun products. But I know that a lot of my readers are still going on holidays… Plus  new season will be upon us in a blink of an eye, it is always like that.

So here are the two products that I’ve been using post-sun on my face and body this summer on my holiday.

After Sun products Clarins After Sun Replenishing Moisture Care For Face and Decollete and La Roche-Posay Hydrating After-Sun Melt-In Gel reviewThis pic was taken in Greece on a small beach which the locals showed us, not far from Olympus.

Face: Clarins After Sun Replenishing Moisture Care For Face and Decollete

I still have to find a Clarins product which I don’t like…This is not an exception. It feels so soothing and hydration on the face, the texture is light and smooth. It calms and moisturizes the skin, and smells amazing, too. Clarins also promise that it prolongs the tan.

I like the fact that it comes with a pump which

I wanted to get a new cleansing milk/toner for the times when I don’t have time to do a “proper” cleanse,  so realized that I never got around trying Clarins One-Step Facial Cleanser with Orange Extract.

Clarins One-Step Facial Cleanser with Orange Extract Review

So, off to the Clarins counter I went. For some reason, the sales assistant (and she is a very lovely girl, and knows me by now, of course) couldn’t understand which product I was talking about, and showed me all the different cleansers.

Why am I telling you that?

  • a) the girl told me that I know Clarins products better than she does. Not gonna lie, that was a lot coming from her.
  • b) I have realized that I have tried all the cleansers & toners she showed me, so it’d probably be a good thing to make a Clarins toners/cleansers guide. What do you think?

But back to the cleanser itself. It is so good!

Pretty much all Clarins products I’ve tried are brilliant, and this one is not an exception.  The cleanser

You all know that I love my Clarins  skincare, but since I’ve already tried most of their products for my skin type (some of them I have re-purchased more than once), I’ve decided to try some other brands, along with Clarins.

And the brands that I’ve decided to add to my routine are REN and Ole Henrikson.  I already posted several features about REN, (speaking of REN, I am really intrigued by this new product) and it’s the first time I am writing about Ole Henriksen actually.

I’d like to share about the face cream that I’ve been loving  a lot lately - Sheer Transformation Creme.

Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation Creme ReviewIt is  an oil-free moiusturizer that gently exfoliates the skin and fades dark posts, while nourishing the skin at the same time. Moreover, here are more claims from the brand:

  • Actiwhite™ and licorice: Prevents and corrects discolouration and evens skin tone with an effective combination of pea extract and sugar.
  • Vitamin C: Stimulates collagen production.
  • Fruit and beta hydroxy acids: Retexturises and soothes lines.
  • Sandalwood, geranium, licorice and chamomile: Soothes, replenishes, balances and purifies the skin.
  • Vitamin E: Heals, restores and nourishes the skin.

But does that all work?

Weleda Birch Body Scrub Review

I love a good body scrub! I always have at least three different options on my bathroom shelve. And today I’d like to show you the one that I’ve been really loving this hot  summer season. It is Weleda’s Birch Body Scrub.

Weleda Birch Body Scrub ReviewI left some water drops on the tube but it doesn’t look as good (if good at all), as I would like it to…

Why do I like this scrub so much? Mostly because of the scent,  the brand says it is birch leaf extract and essential oils (rosemary?). And I’d say that it has an uplifting and invigorating aroma, fresh and clean scent – very unisex.  I don’t know what it is, but it is one of my favourites; the kind of fragrance that makes you want to

Organic Surge Eye Gel Review

I had a chance to try two products from the Organic Surge; I have recently shared my impression about their body wash, and today I want to tell you about the Eye Gel.

I personally am a big believer in a good eye product, and always use an eye cream. I have dry skin, so I prefer rich and moisturizing textures. But since such formulas can be too heavy for summer, it’s all about the eye gels now.

Organic Surge Eye Gel Review

This particular eye gel is promised to reduce puffiness and rejunevate skintone; it is enriched with aloe vera and green tea.  Luckily, I do not
