When I was passing the Vichy display the other day the pretty range with roses caught my attention so I’ve decided to take a look and as a result went home with two products.
One of them is this Essentielles Repairing Hand Cream (50ml) which promises to soothe, soften and nourish skin with moisture. It contains roses polyphenols and is paraben free.
The package is really amazing and girly, it has a pretty rose and the pink elements to it.
But what about the cream itself?
Today I would like to share with you some of my beauty tips. How to take care of your face to stay pretty? In this post I won’t mention any brands, I will just write about the procedures. I saw this tip in one video and now I really like it. First of all I’d like to say that I try not to wash my face with water because I have sensitive skin. This is why I usually use creamy cleansers.
After being really impressed with the Neutrogena’s Norwegian Formula Concentrated hand cream (just got the second one) I’ve decided to get some other products from the range. So I’ve got myself the Deep Moisture Comfort Balm and the Cracked Heel Foot Cream.
And these are nice, I like the smell and the texture but unfortunately, the body balm is not enough for my very dry skin. I guess I should try using the hand cream all over the body as I love the concentrated formula.
As for the foot cream, although my feet are not cracked, they are kind of rough and this cream makes them softer just after I’ve used it. But I can’t say if the effect is long lasting since I gave it away to my grandma who is 70+ and who has a lot of problems with her feet. She told me that her feet are in a bit better condition after using this cream but since she used it only for 3 times I think it’s too early to talk about the healing but I will ask her about the results later.
So in general, these products are not bad especially for the price but the hand cream is definitely my favourite. I still want to try more Neutrogena products in the future so maybe you can share you favourites with me?
It’s a super hot summer and we all should really think about the products that we are using to protect our skin and hair. Today I am not going to tell you why you have to do that ( only lazy one never read any articles about that!). But I am going to tell you about the face cream with very high protection.
And it is
Bioderma Photoderm MAX Cream with SPF 100
I really like how it is described and this basically explains why I like this cream so much:
“Photoderm MAX cream is a sun protector for very fair, freckled skin, which burns easily in the sun, and for skin exposed to strong sun conditions (tropics, glaciers, etc). Photoderm MAX’s texture is suitable for all skin types and covers up blemishes. Consisting of a selection of anti-UVB-UVA filters, Photoderm MAX cream’s very mild formula offers MAXimum sun protection. Photoderm Max cream is rich in anti-radical active ingredients and combats premature skin ageing. Photoderm MAX cream is sun, water and perspiration resistant.”
When it’s very hot and I have to be outside for a long time I like to use maximum protection for my face and I have to say that this cream never fails!
I would also like to say even more,
I really love getting samples of products, as they allow me to decide what products I should invest in, in the future. Recently I received a small sample of Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque (£27)with one of my on-line orders and I totally fell in love!
Although it was only 2.5 ml, it was enough for two applications actually. I’ve heard a lot of great things about Aesop Parsley Seed range but this was my first experience with it and I was blown away actually.
I have dry skin but recently had some break outs and this product really helped with those (along with other products that I used) and also made my skin incredibly soft, clean and fresh. And it did not feel dry or tight and did not make me want to apply tonnes of cream as soon, as possible. You know that feeling?
Smooth texture and pleasant herbal lavender scent were a big bonus, as well.
