Today I want to tell you about the Clarins One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser which was the part of this set that I’ve bought for myself as a post-holidays treat.
Since it’s a part of the Clarins’ girls top 5 products, I had high expectations and it did not disappoint.
It is basically a face wash and scrub two-in-one which means that you do your cleansing in only one step, as the name suggests.
I find that it does a great job: removes all traces of makeup and cleanses the skin really well, without drying it out ( I have very dry skin and I could not believe that I did not have that ”tight” feeling afterwards). Although, I usually prefer enzyme peels over scrubs, this one is rather gentle. I’d say it’s spot on, not too “scrubby” but just good enough to exfoliate the skin.
I also like the lovely orange scent, which is a nice touch; this is especially awesome in theRead More
I know that this is an absolutely random product to write about but I just have to share because I really love it. No, I actually LOVE it!
I have got this Cien Bodycare Shower Cream With Almond Oil and Apricot from my aunt, among other things, for Christmas.
It is labelled as a shower cream for dry and very dry skin and I find both to be accurate. The texture is so creamy and lovely but at the same time it cleanses the skin nicely. And I find that it doesn’t irritate or dry out my skin as much, as some other (even expensive) products may.
Besides the amazing texture, I also love theRead More
I have been using Lierac Diopticreme Wrinkle Repair Cream Eye Contour for 20+ days so, I think, can finally tell you my opinion about it.
I really wanted to get a Lierac eye cream, as I have heard a lot of great things about it.
There are actually five products in the Diopti range: Dioptigel, puffiness reducing gel, Diopticerne and Diopticerne Teinte, dark circle correcting cream, Diopticreme, wrinkle repair cream, Diopticalm, soothing balm and mask and Dioptidemaq, makeup removing gel.
I’ve picked up the anti-wrinkle one, as I believe in “prevention” and that good skincare means a lot and does work! I am judging by looking on the older ladies who took a good care of their skin. By the way, I would recommend this feature about anti-ageing by Caroline Hirons.
Moreover, unfortunately, my skin underneath the eyes is showing the first signs of ageing, even though I am in the 25-30 age group.
The regular face cream just doesn’t cut it for me and I can totally see the difference when I use the cream formulated for the delicate under eye area. Totally worth the investment, if you ask me.
By no meansRead More
Since I have very dry skin, body moisturizer is a must have for me, otherwise my skin feels tight and looks patchy.
Today I want to show you the product that I have been using quite a lot recently - L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Lotion.
The texture is light and non-sticky so it absorbs very quickly, at least this is the case with me. Besides shea butter, it also contains natural honey and apricot oil which moisturize the skin and leave it smooth and soft.
However, for the cold season I find thatRead More
If you are a regular reader, you probably know that I am not a big fan of scrubs with very small particles and love my body scrubs to be really exfoliating but gentle.
Philosophy Pure Grace Hot Salt Scrub is the kind of scrub that I like.
The coolest thing about this scrub is that it warms up when you rub it in your (dry) skin for one-two minutes, as the brand suggests.
It leaves the skin silky and smooth – exactly what we want from a scrub. I would say that it does help battle the dryness on knees and elbows, too. I also find that my creams absorb better after this scrub.
The scent is not overwhelming and is not intense, soRead More
