So here's the first two non foaming cleansers I've ever bought, I picked them both up a few weeks back at the body shop local to me.
The oil balm "butter" is gorgeous and I use it as my first cleanse at night, it was super affordable and really I can't seem to fault it for the price range at all. Love it.
The vitamin E range cleansing cream, it adorbs super fast on dry sky, so I tend to have to use my flannel (wash cloth/ect) first to dampen my skin.
I use this as my current morning cleanse and my second cleanse at night, the feel is lovely once on and it's easy to massage in, and again for the price range it's great, but ...yes
there's a few buts.
The bottle either needs to be squeezed to get the product out and it's sometimes hard to control how much you get, or you leave the product upside down and it's covered the lid and around the product, what it could use is a pump or something along those lines.
Overall I'd repurchase the balm 100%. But not so sure about the cream. (Maybe in a different bottle with a pump) wink wink
Just a little intro before I start posting more of my up to date product overviews, my buys, my skin care routine and all that goodness.
My names Jimmii, I'm a liberated sufferer of clinically diagnosed depression and a few other things (we won't go into that too much, as this is a positive time!) I've found self care & self love with my new found love, skin care.
Currently I'm new to the whole world of skin care, as over the years with my problems I've not taken care of my skin, I'm not talking skipping a day cleansing, I mean maybe a week on end without touching it.
But tribute to these products, I used the scrub from age 18-25(now) and felt good after, even though it was a sls foaming beaded scrub....out of all of them you're the best haha.
The moisturizer on the other hand, actually to my new knowledge has a little cult following, due to it having salicylic acid, being light, and smelling great, although your face does feel a little tight.
But overall, they was nearly always 3 for £10 at boots, I'd avoid the scrub, but try the moisturizer out of curiosity if you wish, it's better then you'd expect for the price. *pictures found on the net due to not having any of these anymore*
Did you know we stock pixi by Petra in-store?
This fantastic brand has some cult products and followers including the queen of skincare herself #Caroline Hirons who has recently created a double cleanse product for the range. Come in-store and see the range for yourself ! #carolinemademedoit#pixiuk#glowtonic#solihullm&s
#mayskinchallenge Day 8, Value. @carolinehirons boxes for @cultbeauty are one of my picks for good value. IF there are at least several items in the box you need or have been wanting to try, then I would not hesitate to pick one up! Here are two of her boxes I've purchased and they introduced me to so many wonderful and quality products.
Second photo is of @ceraveskin tub of moisturizing cream which has been the only thing that has helped my terrible eczema. I use it unfailing every single day and I'm so grateful that it is reasonably priced. Also felt the need to mention @the_ordinary_skincare because not only are they priced incredibly, I feel that part of what's revolutionary about this line is that you can buy only what your skin needs. It's customization without the prices you would normally associate with something bespoke. An it's also not paying for what you don't want! Gotta love that. #skincare#carolinehirons#carolinemademedoit#cultbeauty#deciem#cerave#eczema
it snowed again today but the sun shined in the afternoon, the temperature stayed above 0°C, and everything pretty much melted away spring, please don't fail us. #helsinki
i tried this instant teriyaki soba for the second time now (K-City in Sello had two for 3€ the other day so might as well buy it). it was okay, but most likely i won't buy it again, since it's kind of expensive (compared to other instant noodles) and i found myself struggled to finish toward the end. i quite liked the design though. it has some holes on the lid for you to drain the water out.
i received the Tata Harper package from Content Beauty today, together with two samples (should be three but John Masters Lavender Rosemary Shampoo was out of stock. the two are Dafna Moisture Light and Pai Instant Calm Day Cream). the Tata Harper ones i chose were Rebuilding Moisturizer and Soothing Muscle Gel. i realized yesterday that Caroline included the Rebuilding Moisturizer in her What to Buy post for this brand, and the coincidence made me quite happy. i chose this moisturizer because i want something suitable for my combination skin and hydrating at the same time. i got to know a story about Tata Harper today that dampened my eagerness to experience this brand, but i will still try out these products that i bought, and also consider other brands.
i also went to Naturelle to buy Mahalo The Unveil. i want something that doesn't require a flannel - The Unveil is supposed to. and it's green! it shouldn't matter but i have a green garden today!
oh yeah and Naturelle gave me the Juice Beauty Green Apple Brightening SPF15 Moisturizer i'm not sure if i will use it because i have Kypris Pot of Shade, but we'll see.
looking forward to try them out!
i was thinking of including some thoughts on customer service experience from the places that i shop from, but maybe it will be for another day. #skincareenthusiast#skincareinfinland#ihonhoito#contentbeauty#naturelle#tataharper#mahalocare#carolinemademedoit
