Apivita 3 in 1 Cleansing Milk

Goodmorning everyone!

I wanted to review this product just because some of you might haven't gone yet for your holidays, so it would be a perfect recommendation for your night make up removig routine.

Well, Apivita is a Greek brand that has far too good scincare products than you would imagine.
It's the first time I've tried a make up remover milk that isn't sooo thick like all the others out there.
I can't get it. Only people with dry skin can use cleansing milk?
I'm an oily skin type girl and I find that only cleansing milks remove my whole make up.
Watery make up removers are only for my eyes. A water can not remove my foundation. The end!

So, as I was saying it has the most lightweight formula that I couldn't believe it's a cleansing milk!
I put a little bit on my cotton pad on each cheek and forehead and boom! My foundation and stuff are gone so gently! I do use it for my eyes too without irritating me! Obviously, I do cleanse my face after that with my Froika cleansing gel, but I don't feel that I need too much effort to push away the oily residues the most cleansing milks leave.

It has chamomile and honey which you can feel and smell, very lightly but you can. I know that apart from its job of cleansing, it also does good for my skin due to natural ingredients it contains. Love it!
This one considers to be for all skin types, but I would say that it could work better for normal-combination sensitive skin types, just because its light texture would do nothing for dry skins as it's very very very gentle too.

The amazing part is that Apivita does travel size products! When you're away, you seriously don't need the whole bottle of cleansing milk. This one does not take place in your make up bag, having on the same time the proper amount you would need.
I bought the 50 ml travel size for 3 Euros.
It comes in a 250 ml bottle with pump for around 13-15 Euros.
Amazing package both of them!
Quite pricy compared with drugstore ones, but too cheap compared to other pharmacy brands. Yep!
You can get it from exclusive Apivita stores, pharmacies or from the website http://www.apivita.com/ .


I'm definitely going to buy the full size, just because it's the only cleansing milk I've found that does a job for my oily skin, without spending a fortune !
It's a natural based product too, so you know it won't be bad for your skin.
If you know other nice cleansing milk please leave me a comment down below so as to give them a try.

100% recommended!  xx

La Roche-Posay: Hydraphase Intense Serum

Hey everyone!

For a couple of months I've been testing out this amazing rehydrating gel-serum for sensitive dehydrated skins!
Well, I only have to say the best of words for this one.

First of all, it's a watery formula, with nice smooth gel texture that's easy and quick to use.
When you put it on it feels like you literally throw water to your face! It gently moisturises your skin without making you oily or something. It absorbs immediately and leaves your skin so soft and mat. You know and you can feel that you've been moisturised in 2 seconds!

In the summer I do not use my regular Uriage moisturiser, as what I only do in the morning is to put on my sunscreen which has moisturising properties too, so I don't need to overuse too many products.
So, as I have a "luck" I would say of a proper moisturiser, this serum makes the whole miracle!
Why ? Beacuse it's a concetrated moisturising serum, that infuses deep inside your skin only with water! Straight where your face needs it! And that's more than good for my skin.
Apart from that, I know that due to the factor that it's a light formula full of hyaluronic acids it can smooth any expression lines you may have.
I do have oily skin and had no problem using it in the morning, under my sunscreen, days I feel I need some more extra hydration.
Don't forget that in the summer all skins become a little bit more dehydrated, so even if you do use a moisturiser, you may want to use this one in your night scincare routine as an extra step.
My mum has dry skin and she looooves it!

I definitely see results now that I'm back from my holidays, as the sun did its job.
I won't use it in the winter just because it's too light using it on its own then, and too much for my skin to use it both with my regural moisturiser.
But in the summer I found that it's the most clever way to put hyaluronic acids deep inside your skin.

Product was sent from assetOgilvy on behalf of L’oreal Cosmetique Active.
When it comes to package, it has a nice glass bottle with pump, quite posh I would say.
It's a 30 ml for 25 euros.

I recommend it even if you are not used to serums. You and your mum will love it!
Some days it's nice to treat yourself  more than you would :)

La Roche-Posay: Blush in 03 Beige Praline

Hello girls and happy August! :)

I'm back from my summer holidays in Lefkada island, and I'm more than ready for some reviews I had in mind for quite long time.

You need to know that my all time favorite make up item that I never go out without it on is my blush!
Love blushes and love bronzing blushes. Summer and winter.
When it comes from my favorite brand too, it makes me double happy; and that's La Roche-Posay!!! whoot whoot :)

Well, this blush is my go to summer blush, for almost 2 years since I bought it !
It has the most amazing true bronzing color, not too dark not too light, that gives your cheeks that warm glow you need for healthy summery looks. The name Praline describes it amazingly.
It has shimmers that makes you look like you're wearing extra highlight on your cheekbones. Not too many, but enough to make you shine :)
On the same time, the color itself makes a truely nice job when it comes to contour. Defines your cheeks without looking muddy or dirty like some powdery bronzers do.

For me it's a 3 in 1 product while I use it as my blush, my highlighter and my bronzer due to its color and texture.


It's a silky powder formula, quite light and easy to handle with and blends with your skin perfect!
It lasts all day! Seriously, all day !!! It doesn't go anywhere and that's a plus for me.
It has an amazing color pay off, as you need only one swatch and boom! you're ready . Blushed and defined!
 

If you have blemish bumbs, I wouldn't recommend it cause the shimmer will enhance your problem areas.
Personally I tend to wear it only in the summer, when I have a little color on, cause I think its color looks too much dark and shiny in winter time for my NC20 skin tone.


Blush brush from The Body Shop



It's a 6gr product in an awesome sleek, small and pretty package, that's easy to carry on with you.
Retails for around 18 Euros.
There are another 3 shades in the range I believe which are nice too.

Try one of their blushes and you'll be happy that you've discovered a better version of Mac blushes





Don't forget that it's a French brand that certainly won't irritate you or make you break out!
Love it ! xxx
