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 never suffered from break outs in the past  but these days I can get occasional  spot or two. Since I never had to deal this such issue, I have started reading about the products that may help and came across a very positive review of Decleor Aroma Purete Imperfections Roll’On.

I have tried several anti spots/blemishes products in the past but was not impressed, so I have got this one straight away.

And I was not disappointed!

Here are the promises from the brand:

  • 1. Cleanse skin, and quickly reduce the appearance of blemishes (Madagascan Ylang Ylang, Sage and Rosemary Essential Oils).
  •  2. Soothe red blotches (Lavender Essential Oil).
  •  3. Tackle unsightly blemishes (Lemon Essential Oil).

And I will have to

I don’t like experiments when it comes to my face, so I choose the products I use carefully and rarely agree to try new skincare products for the feature, let a lot several new products.

But I’ve decided to take the opportunity and try AR457 range, because  this brand seemed like an amazing one and because my Twitter friend who swears by it.

What is AR457?  It is an luxury French skincare, pioneer in Argan oil skincare.

The name stands for:

  • 4 tocopherols, natural antioxidants that prevent the skin’s ageing process and the formation of wrinkles.
  • 5 phytosterols that revitalize the skin and regenerate cells
  • 7 biomolecules with healing, filtering, revitalizing, protective and disinfectant properties

 I have several products to show you:

Well-Being Care [dwlb], €58

This is a day cream with  a  sun protection, as the brand calls it “complex solar filter Well-Being Care [dwlb]”

I actually really like it and already used about half of  the jar, as I find that this cream works great for my dry and sensitive skin. It smells really nice, feels light, yet moisturizing and nourishing. My skin is smooth and supple afterwards and it works great under my makeup. Just don’t put the foundation straight away, obviously.

It doesn’t clog my pores and doesn’t make me break out.

Elixir Metaserum [lyf]€ 88

This is quite a thick  and very moisturizing serum. Works great underneath the cream, especially in colder months when you need that extra care!  I do find it hydrating, as  promised, as it did help to battle the tightness and dryness. The key ingredients are avant-garde seaweed extract, Padina Pavonica which

Clarins Extra-Firming Body Cream Review. Rave

My skin is very dry and in winter I have to use a cream or butter (yes, the lotion is not enough) at least once a day.

I have tried several Clarins body moisturisers over years and their Extra-Firming Body Cream is my absolutely favourite. In fact, this is one of the best creams I have ever tried.

This is a rich cream, which is almost like a butter, but it doesn’t feel greasy or oily at all.  According to Clarins, the product should lift, tone and comfort, and it does.

My dry skin absorbs it pretty quixkly and doesn’t leave any residue. I personally really love the nice and subtle scent which would not conflict with your perfume.  Skin on my body feels very nourished,

I was sent Deep Heat Muscle Rescue  Bath Soak  (£5.49) and Neck and Shoulder Cream  (£5.99) which were created to help ease tension in stressed muscles some time ago, and today I am ready to tell you my opinion.

Unfortunately, about 90% of the bath soak leaked ( it was not closed properly)  in the post so I was not able to try it out properly but I did like the scent of it (essential oils of rosemary, patchouli and orange). I think  it should be a nice product to use after a long day at work or after a workout.

How cool is the design?! The colours are so cheerful and fun!

But as for the cream, I have used it several times and liked it a lot. It comes with a sponge applicator which is very handy as you don’t get the product on your hands.

It  definitely helps to relax at the end of the day. Just apply some cream before going to bed  (it’s better with a massage of course) on your neck and shoulders, and enjoy the warm and relaxing feeling. Just make sure that you don’t apply several layers of product as it may be too much, especially if you have sensitive skin.

Not only it feels relaxing in the evening, but my neck and shoulders are not so tense in the morning.

I also like the way it smells, to me it’s rosemary.

Here is the list of the ingredients:

I would get another tube of the cream when my sample runs out.
