For your sensitive skin – Bioderma Hydrating Face Serum

Bioderma Hydrabio Serum Concentre Hydrant

A subjective review :  My face skin is dehydrated and sensitive with the everyday stress signs.

As you know, my favourite hydrating serum is the one from Aldi. It is still my no 1.s

However I test with pleasure new cosmetics, just to change products from time to time, as dermatologists claim the skin gets used to the same face cream and it does not work so well anymore if we use it for too long without any break. Is it really like that or they try to sell us more? Well, we do not know. I know that our grannies applied only a simple Nivea cream and they had wonderful face skin.

Review: Sensibo H2O was recommended to me by my colleague. She has a wonderful skin and I asked how does she cleanse it. She said: Bioderma Micelle Solution. It looks like water, it feels like water, but it works much better than just water.

Alverde Aqua Gesichtswasser Meeresalge-face toner Alverde Aqua dm drogerie wm

Copyright © 2014-2015 Elkapatelka

 

 Today’s review is about Alverde Aqua Gesichtswasser Meeresalge face toner for normal and mixed complexion, which is the second element of my daily routine. I try to have as many face cosmetics as possible from one brand if all of them are decent. I’m hopeful that I minimise allergy risk in doing so.

Alverde is one of my favourites from DM – a German beauty supermarkets with great quality products. I already recommended some of their products, and I have some more coming up for review – watch this space.

Alverde brand products are vegan and have been dermatologically tested. In most cases, they have organic ingredients and natural oils-see Ingredients below for this face toner.

Brand: Lancome
Category: Cleanser
Name: Galateis Douceur Cleanser – For All Skin Types
Country origin: Made in France
Size: 400 ml

Price: approx £23

Review of the product:  ‘Lancome Galateis Douceur Cleanser 400ml – For All Skin Types’ has been my favourite eye make up cleanser for years.

I had a short fascination of Eau Micellaire  (micellar water) but Lancôme Galatéis Douceur is more pleasant because of its superior lotion consistence to remove eye make-up.

I usually purchase mine from duty-free shops at airports, and each bottle lasts for quite a couple of months.

6=idealny-kupilabym ponownie/ Excellent, I would buy it again!

 

Opinion of the product: Another good dm drogerie product. Not many English speaking readers will be able to get it though. This brand is sold mostly in Germany and Austria. What a pity, as dm drogerie has amazing products in very affordable prices.

What do we expect from the care lipstick? To protect the lips from environmental negative influence: sun, wind, cold and as an extra- to make us looking nicer. This one does the job perfectly.

This lipstick smells lovely of cherries. It leaves a thin and smooth layer of care on our lips and light red colour, which looks very naturally. The Kirsch colour will fit the one of you who like to have slightly more red lips, but want still look naturally. It is not an intensive red, just “ready for a kiss” one.

It is dermatologicaly tested.

It lasts very long. I have many of them in different flavours in each coat, as my lips tend to dry out.One lipstick last  for me for half a year. If it is used daily I would give it maximum three months. If I like the smell of it I use it up quicker. I love to try new lip care balms or lipsticks.

This Balea Lip Balm is highly recommended. I will definitely buy it again.

Opinia o produkcie: Marka dm ma wiele swietnych produktow. Mozna je nabyc przez internet na austriackiej stronie lub tez w Niemczech lub Austrii osobiscie w drogeriach tej sieci.

Pomadka ochronna Balea Kirsch ma zapach czeresni i takiz kolor. Pozostawia na ustach aksamitna poswiate, niezbyt mocnej czerwieni. Podkresla raczej naturalna czerwien ust, sprawiajac, ze sa one “gotowe na pocalunek”.

Produkt jest testowany dermatologicznie, nie kruszy sie, nie jelczeje, nie lamie sie, co mi sie juz zdarzylo z pomadka Oeparol wczesniej. Opakowanie pozostaje bez zmian. Mechanizm zamkniecia dziala do konca zuzycia produktu. Balea Kirsch jest w bardzo przystepnej cenie i wystarcza na dlugo. Zawsze mam kilka pomadek ochronnych, w kazdym plaszczu, stad ciezko mi powiedziec na jak dlugo Wam wystarczy Balea Kirsch, ale biorac pod uwage jej sliczny zapach i wspaniala konsystencje mozna sie od niej uzaleznic i zuzyc ja bardzo szybko, w ciagu miesiaca lub dwoch. Ochrania usta przed zimnem i wiatrem, ale nie posiada filtrow ochronnych na slonce. Stosuje ja w lecie, ale na wakacje marka dm ma inny produkt. Pomadki ochronne z filtrem UV sa ciezsze w strukturze i czasem pozostawiaja bialy nalot na ustach, ale o tym w oddzielnym wpisie.

Uwielbiam ten produkt i polecam go Wam serdecznie, zwlaszcza tym, ktore szukaja naturalnego podkreslenia koloru ust polaczonego z pielegnacja w dobrej cenie.

Opinion about the product: If you ask me, Lacura Hydro Intensive Serum is simply the best moisturizing serum on the market, and at the best at that. The serum is available in select UK Aldi stores, but I purchased mine in Germany, where the packaging may slightly differ.

It is an excellent product: it has light structure, soaks in very quickly without leaving a sticky layer. One press of the bottle’s pump will be enough for your whole face. I use an extra portion for my decollete, and doing so, a bottle lasts for about three months.

You should use it under your day or night face cream, as this increases its moisturizing power. The hygienic packaging does not let the air in and keeps the product fresh as long the bottle lasts. The only little downsize is that when you get towards the end of your supply, it’s very hard to reach the serum at the bottle of the bottom (I had to open it and pour the leftover).

Importantly, it did not cause any allergic reaction on my sensitive skin. You will feel the moisturizing effect straight after the first use. I recommend this product without qualification, it is my favorite serum, and I use it regularly.

Why Use a Face Serum?
Serum can get into deeper layers of your skin as its molecules are smaller.


 

Opinia o produkcie: Wspanialy, ale niedoceniany produkt. Ktokolwiek robi zakupy w supermarkecie Aldi znajdzie na stoisku z kosmetykami ten produkt. Ja swoj kupilam w Szwajcarii i Niemczech. Nie jestem pewna, czy mozna go nabyc w polskim Aldim, ale zdecydowanie warto zapytac. Serum uzywam od 3 lat z przerwami na wyprobowanie innych serum.
Doskonaly produkt: lekki, nie natluszcza, ale swietnie nawilza, stanowi z kremem nawilzajacym istny kompres dla wrazliwej skory.

Nadaje sie do wszystkich rodzajow cery. Nadaje uczucie odswiezenia i mocnego nawilzenia. Stosuje rano I wieczorem pod krem, po uzyciu toniku. Testowalam inne serum, jednak do tego wiernie wracam. Jest rowniez najtansze z dostepnych.

Serum jest zamkniete w butelce szklanej z dozownikiem, z ktorego jednorazowo dozuje nam wystarczajaca porcje serum na cala twarz I szyje.

Jesli stosujesz dodatkowo na dekolt-nawilzony dekolt nie marszczy sie tak szybko- to konieczna jest jeszcze jedna porcja. Opakowanie produktu wystarcza  na trzy miesiace stosowania, dwa razy dziennie na twarz I dekolt. Serum Hydra Multi Intensive jest bardzo wydajne. Nie uczula, nie podraznia, nie powoduje wypryskow. Nie wazy sie przy wyzszej temperaturze-sprawdzilam, podrozowalo ze mna.
