As you could have guessed, we are continuing with summer articles. And why not? It’s hot outside and we can’t wait to leave for vacation. Swimming suits are bought, and we are eagerly waiting for the postman to arrive (in case you didn’t know, there is currently a huge sale on Asos). But, aside from clothes and accessories, we made sure that we bought something for our skin. You surely already know that during hot summer days, skin needs extra care. Along with hydration, deodorant (because we don’t want to leave an ugly odor behind us ), SPF is probably the most important. Believe us, miss Skin will remember every time that you’ve neglected her and will make you sorry for it. Although we both have a dark complexion and very rare, almost never had a sunburn, we always, ALWAYS apply SPF. Probably because our mom who used to pester us with putting a sunblock on us every time we’d get out of the sea.
Being that we both have a mixed skin type prone to greasing, SPF can additionally grease it, and create problems with our skin (acne,pimples). Because of that, we have deeply researched SPF creams for greasy and mixed skin. Bioderma is a brand that we are faithful to for a number of years, so we decided to give their Bioderma Photoderm AKN MAT fluid cream a go. Even that we are using it for no longer than a month, we must admit that we are really happy with it. Scent is subtle and light, as with all of their products, and powder or bb cream look much better when applied after Bioderma. Product is packed in a 40ml plastic tube, which is practical for taking it on a vacation. It’s waterproof and it doesn’t leave that white trail on your face, like most creams with SPF do. We are surely going to keep buying it. For my night cream, I use Nikel’s cream with tea tree, and to be honest, i don’t know if I like it yet. I bought that cream because their SOS for pimples knocked my socks off by the way it took care of my PMS pimple army that appeared on my face. I’m using this cream for a week now, so I can’t see the results yet, but i really like the smell and ingredients. With tea tree, the is also vitamin F which calms and regenerates skin. Cream comes in a 50ml package, price is $18 and it’s completely natural and made in Croatia.
Do you remember when we wrote about S Fresh (sos wonder, miss purple kiss), another croatian natural cosmetics brand. S Fresh also makes natural deodorants, which we prefer for a couple of years now. Pure & Cool is a deo cream that you apply in a “sexy” fashion with your finger. Grapefruit and eucalyptus scent is refreshing and very pleasant, and it lasts throughout the whole day. If you’re not accustomed to natural deo creams and the way they are applied, you might not like at first, but give it a chance, you will not be sorry.
The last product we would like to talk about is Le Petit Marseillais body balsam that has a subtle and gentle, but heavenly nonetheless almond scent. Balsam is really nurturing for your skin, and you can see in the picture how much we like it, we got to the bottom of the bottle really quick. Price is about $5.
