Kose Softymo Speedy Cleansing Liquid – Review

This product is intended for people with acne-prone skin. It’s a good alternative for those who can’t or don’t want to use conventional cleansing oils. The ingredients list is modest, there are emulsifiers, moisturising agents, solvents, and preservatives. No fragrance or dyes; the product smells like glycerine mixed with ethanol. It doesn’t cause any dryness… Read More Kose Softymo Speedy Cleansing Liquid – Review

Cetaphil Night Moisturizer for Redness Prone Skin / Pro Moisturising Night Cream – Review

This moisturiser is also known under the name ‘Cetaphil Pro Moisturising Night Cream’, that’s the name chosen for the European market. I’ve purchased this product from Amazon, and for some reason, they sell the American version in Europe. There are no formula differences, though.  This product is a well-formulated moisturiser ideal for dry and redness-prone… Read More Cetaphil Night Moisturizer for Redness Prone Skin / Pro Moisturising Night Cream – Review

Avène Cicalfate+ Restorative Protective Cream and Cicalfate Lotion – Review

Both of these products have similar purposes, protect and repair skin, but the formulas vary and offer different benefits. I use this product for a variety of skin issues: cuts, minor injuries, after dermatological treatments, or after picking a spot. It is an excellent choice for angered or injured skin (not deep wounds though). It… Read More Avène Cicalfate+ Restorative Protective Cream and Cicalfate Lotion – Review

La Roche-Posay Hyalu B5 Hyaluronic Acid Serum – Review

Here’s a review of another fantastic product by La Roche-Posay. The formula is pretty straightforward; two types of hyaluronic acid for optimal hydration, panthenol (vitamin B5) soothes and helps to repair the skin, and madecassoside, the active ingredient in Centella Asiatica, is anti-inflammatory and helps to stimulate collagen production. We can also find good old… Read More La Roche-Posay Hyalu B5 Hyaluronic Acid Serum – Review

Kose Softymo Super Cleansing Wash with Hyaluronic Acid – Review

Japanese cleansing foams are one of the best cleansers out there; they remove everything and don’t strip the skin of moisture. The ingredients list is simple: ingredients that serve to cleanse the skin as well as glycerin and two types of hyaluronic acid to moisturise it.  This foam is fantastic. If you massage it on… Read More Kose Softymo Super Cleansing Wash with Hyaluronic Acid – Review

La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Sensitive Areas Stick SPF 50+ – Review

A few days ago, I was doing spring cleaning, and I found this stick. I bought this product last year, but I didn’t use much of it.  This sunscreen contains a mix of chemical filters, one of them is L’Oreal’s Mexoryl XL, and micronised titanium dioxide. It has a fatty base featuring glycerine, castor seed… Read More La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Sensitive Areas Stick SPF 50+ – Review

CeraVe SA Smoothing Cleanser – Review

The SA Smoothing Cleanser is similar to the American equivalent the Renewing SA Cleanser, though there are few ingredient differences. The SA Smoothing Cleanser is a sulphate-& fragrance-free salicylic acid cleanser. It also includes niacinamide, ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and quite a bit of glycerine. It’s suitable for all skin types. I think a product like… Read More CeraVe SA Smoothing Cleanser – Review

SkinCeuticals Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier (H.A) – Review

 This post concludes my reviews of SkinCeuticals’ products for 2020, as I don’t plan any more for this year.  The H.A. Intensifier is more than just a hyaluronic serum; it contains a lot of ingredients that work together to revitalise the skin. The main component of the formula, besides hyaluronic acid (1.3%), is Proxylane (10%),… Read More SkinCeuticals Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier (H.A) – Review
