Summer faves: skincare

IMG_0206

Am initiat un soi de trilogie de produse preferate de vara. Parca vad ca in final vor fi 2 post-uri sau chiar 4 – sunt foarte haotica. Pana la urma si cei patru apostoli, care erau doar trei, au fost Luca si Matei.

I’ve started a sort of a trilogy with summer faves, body care, skincare and make up. I guarantee nothing, in the end I might write 4 posts or even 2, I’m so inconsistent. 

In categoria skincare avem Bioderma Photoderm Max 50+, pe care o folosesc pe fata cand stiu ca voi sta mai mult expusa la soare, si pe tatuaje, pentru ca asta e, ladies, sunt frumoase si speciale, dar trebuie sa le ingrijim constant. E un fluid, cum scrie si pe ambalaj, miroase a crema de protectie solara cumva, e putin cam grasa cand o aplici, dar intra desul de repede in piele.

Starting with skincare we have sunblooooock, hurray for the sunblock. I tend to cheat on the sunblock factor in the rest of the year, but in the summer even I become more conscious about my skin. Bioderma Photoderm Max 50+ is a moisturizing, sun protecting fluid. I apply this on my face, it’s a fluid but it has a greasy texture in the beginning, tough it does sink in pretty ok. I also apply this on my tattoos, gotta keep them protected, no, ladies? 

Doua ape de fata: Apimond – Apa de flori de trandafir – o folosesc seara dupa demachiere pentru un spritz fresh, miroase usor a trandafiri, dar nu e o aroma deranjanta, in afara de faptul ca improspateaza nu-mi dau seama sa fac si altceva, dar e o senzatie placuta. A doua e apa termala de la Elmiplant, ma rog, apa minerala, pe care la fel o folosesc pentru improspatare dimineata sau de-a lungul zilei. Nu mi-a placut niciodata sa o aplic peste machiaj, desi aparent il fixeaza, nu stiu de ce, daca ati incercat voi, spuneti-mi cum e.

Two face mists: Apimond’s Rose Water – Romanian natural skincare brand – I use this after taking of my make-up, before applying moisturizer. It’s just fresh and relaxing, it has a light rose scent. The second product is also by a Romanian brand, Elmiplant,  and it’s a mineral, thermal, whatever, water. Like Avene and Vichy have. Again, I use this for refreshing the skin in the morning before makeup, and along the day if my skin feels irritated. I know you can est makeup with this, but I’ve never had the courage to do that. Did you? 

Gelul de Aloe Vera – 99% aloe vera – de la BioDrop – e nelipsit vara. Pentru muscaturi de tantari, iritatii de la soare si caldura, pentru orice problema a pielii – e cel mai calmant produs ever.

99% Aloe Vera Gel  by Biodrop, also a Romanian skincare brand – this is the little bottle of holy grail for summer. You name it: sunburn, irritated skin, mosquito bites, anything at all – this solves. 

Crema gel de la The Body Shop seaweed – varianta mini – am luat-o acu un an si tot asteptam sa vina vara sa o pot folosi odata. Are textura gel, matifiaza, miroase a arome marine cu putin alcool parca, asa simt eu, mi se pare ca usuca putin pielea, dar e ok pentru zile foarte foarte calduroase .

Seaweed mattifying moisturizer from The body Shop – mini size – I’ve had this for forever and usually I like products that hydrate my skin and give it a nice glowy healthiness look, but even I need my makeup not to melt every ow and then. It has a discrete smell, it’s a gel texture, it does dry up your skin a tinsy weensie, but for summer it’s a nice product. 

Doua balsamuri de buze de la Balea – watermelon si juicy orange – miros delicios, dau putina stralucire de gloss, nu sunt pigmentate, desi cel de watermelon e rosiatic la culoare – sunt lejere si hidratante.

Balea lip balms -splashy watermelon and juicy orange – they smell delicious, they hydrate, they’re not pigmented, they’re really not greasy at all, just light and fresh.
