I am a big fan of cleansing balms and melting cleansers mostly because they work great for my dry and sensitive skin, and also because I love to massage my face while using a cleanser.
It all started with Elemis Melting Cleansing Gel (review) back in 2011, and I never looked back! Over the years I have now tried quite a few, so decided to make a lill’ round-up. Maybe, if you are looking for such kind of cleanser, this will be helpful.
While my latest “Beauty Purchases” post was about affordable makeup and hair care products, this time it’s all about the skincare, and things are more on the luxury side.
I went with my boyfriend because he wanted some products, too. So here is what we’ve got:
1. Eisenberg Homme Exfoliant Visage Purifiant
It makes me think of Breaking Bad, just add H ;) I have never tried anything from this brand and was never really drawn to it, mostly because it has similar prices, as Dior or Chanel, for example. But the boyfriend wanted to try this face scrub. I hope he likes it…
2. DIOR HOMME DERMO SYSTEM Regenerating Moisturizing Balm
This range should be amazing, plus this cream was highly recommended by my favourite sales assistant. All the things she recommends are always amazing, so we just went for it.
Here is how it looks like, it comes in a chic dark blue tube which could also work for boys (which means that your man can borrow it
when you don’t know).
As for the product itself – I really love it! The texture is creamy and it sticks to the skin, without falling all over the bath/shower and making a mess. I personally use it on the dry skin and I don’t need that much [product], so the tube will last me for some time.
The scrub contains natural exfoliators of rice, bamboo and bora bora sand which are exfoliating enough (just how I love it, I personally don’t like when scrubs are too smooth, know what I mean?) butRead More
I have gathered some empties to show you :)! I am kind of excited as now I can get the replacement. Well, actually, I have already got some new products, instead of these.
So here we go:
Elemis Pro-Collagen Advanced Eye Treatment
This is definitely one of the most effective eye treatments I have ever used, absolutely loved it. Here is a full review.
Elemis Pro-Intense Eye and Lip Contour Cream
This was also a nice product but I have used it for the eyes mostly, and loved the eye treatment (the one above) better. Plus I think it’d be more suitable for more mature ladies.
Clarins Toning Lotion with Camomile for Dry and Normal Skin
I have a thing for Clarins Toners andRead 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.
I justRead More
