Aromatherapy Associates Soothing Cleansing Balm Review

Considering that Aromatherapy Associates Soothing Cleansing Balm is one of  the best cleansers I have ever used, it is surprising that I have not written about it earlier.

This cleanser has a lovely formula that works great for an evening facial massage, it is not greasy or tacky, just a nice balmy texture. The product doesn’t have a strong overpowering scent, it smells of camomile to me.

I personally take off my makeup with a micellar water first, and then use this lush cleanser, as I’d rather massage my skin with it, instead of taking off my mascara (which you can obviously do, if you want to).

It works great for

FOM London Jet Set Essential Beauty Kit

FOM London Jet Set Essential Beauty Kit comes beautifully packaged in a black box with a crimson ribbon. It shows how the brand pays attention to the details, and wants their customers to enjoy everything about their service, from the look to the performance of the products.

Besides the pleasing aesthetic side of the kit, you get a well-thought about packaging: mini glass bottles with the pumps! How convenient is that? You don’t need to worry about getting the product all over and creating a mess. Moreover, you don’t waste any product that way.

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.

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

Decleor Aroma Purete Imperfections Roll’On Review

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

AR457 Luxury French Argan Skincare Range Review

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
