A haul for a winter that never came / Haul de iarna care nu a mai venit

IMG_9441 Pentru ca urma ( credeam eu) un ianuarie geros si un februarie si mai geros, am vrut sa imi pun gherutele pe niste creme/balsamuri de fata ceva mai serioasa, care sa faca fata. Mi-am dorit muuuult balsamurile de ten de la Sanflora si balsamurile lor de buze, dar ma tot uitam pe site de ceva vreme si erau pe stoc termiant toate. Asa ca am zis sa incerc Cold Cream de la La Roche Posay, o crema foarte foarte grasa pentru ten uscat si sensibil, fara conservanti, parfum si emulsifianti. E ca un unguent, e gras, uleios, si imi imaginam eu ca va da bine pe -15 grade, in toiul furtunii de zapada. Dar nu am am mai apucat s-o folosesc, pentru ca ghioceii au aparut deja a doua oara iarna asta. S-ar putea totusi s-o pun in actiune noaptea, in caz ca e pielea foarte uscata, sau in cazuri etreme, cum am facut acum cateva zile cand m-a prins raceala si ma simteam foarte uscata si deshitratata, extern si intern. O recomand pentru cei cu piele foarte foarte uscata care nu simt nevoia sa-si bata capul cu fel de fel de creme. La 100 ml o sa si ajunga timp indelungat.

I was under the (false) impression that this was gonna be a very hard winter, the sort where you stock up with Spam and Marmite because the front door is blocked from all the ungodly mountains of snow that keep falling. Well, I was terribly wrong. It’s now the middle of February and for the past week birds are chirping and I think it snowed just once this winter. Bummer. But, dreamy as I was, I ordered somewhere around January some products for really dry, sore, winter skin that I was supposed to get. I got the La Roche Posay Cold Cream Naturel, basically a really expensive ointment, emulsifiers, conservants and perfume free ointment, which is really heavy, greasy and made specially for the winter I was dreaming of. And well, oh, for sensitive and dry skin. It’s actually nice, it’s a 100 ml good for all cream that will last you a lifetime of winters if all are like mine, and will really soothe the skin. I never got to use it on snow time, but it was handy when I got flu a couple of days ago and I felt really dry, sore, inside and out, and dehydrated. 

Al doilea produs a fost Cicaplast Balsam de Buze. Sunt o fana a balsamului initial Cicaplast Baume, care poate fi folosit pe tot corpul, pentru hidratare, sau diferite iritatii si chiar l-am folosit si pe buze. Balsamul de fata e si el foarte gros, se simte putin uleios pe buze, eu il compar cu uleiul de cocos pe care-l mai aplic din cand in cand, dar rezista mai mult timp pe buze si le hidrateaza cumsecade.

The second thing I got was the new Cicaplast lip balm, released after the initial Cicaplast Baume B5 success. I used the first one on my face and lips but I guess it’s nice to have one that’s made for just that purpose. Plus, how else would we justify shopping sprees? Anyway, it’s sort of like a lip barrier, it creates this soft, silky, oily a bit, layer that stays on more than regular lipbalms, and hydrates the lips. 

Bonus, de pe Aoro.ro, caci de acolo provin produsele mele de craiasa zapezii care n-a mai fost sa fie, am primit o mostra de Cindy Crawford, Waterfalls, care la prima impresie, miroase foarte fresh, primavaratec si dragut. Cam atat pentru azi, Toodles si sa aveti multi ghiocei.

And I got a perfume sample, Cindy Crawford Waterfalls, which is cute, fresh and springy floral . Toodles and have a nice (snowless) February. Sniff.
