Monthly Love (April): Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer

I know I am late for April’s favorite product, but I had no time to write about it. I have to admit that since my due date I used nearly used no make up products (except one day) but I haven’t regret my daily face care routine.

Hmmm…I know! The sticker is a little bit destroyed.Sorry!

It’s been about two years I am in love with Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer. That’s the only moisturizer I have tried since now that provokes me no breakouts at all and doesn’t make my skin greasy.

This moisturizer was the product I used the most during April. In fact, during every month, but I wanted to share it with you!

If you are interested, you can read my (short) review here.


Have you ever tried Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer? Do you love Kiehl’s as much as I do?
Which moisturizer do you use?

Kiehl’s Rosa Arctica Cream: a miracle in our beauty cases!

<!–[if !mso]>st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } <![endif]–>

Imagine a little flower that seems so pretty and fragile but in reality is strong enough to survive for a long long period without water. This flower truly exists and it is called Rosa Arctica (Haberlea rhodopensis). It can survive up to 31 months in a dry- out cycle, by falling into anabiosis. When proper moisture conditions are restored, it returns to life within hours.
Now think of a cream that would offer all these properties in your skin. A dream? Not really! Kiehl’s thought about it and created the new Rosa Arctica cream, a youth regenerating cream that helps to minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles and loss of firmness, while dramatically re-hydrating skin. In fact, in a four-week consumer study conducted with 50 women ages 40 to 50, 91% of users said their skin appeared “more revitalized and rejuvenated” and 93% said their skin felt “denser and thicker”—which is a good thing, when we’re talking about skin.
Thanks to the Rosa Arctica flower, the anti-age treatment helps to jolt skin cells. This cream does not only deliver energy to the skin, allowing cellular activity to reawaken, but also protects the skin from future damage. As a result, the skin becomes visibly firmer, denser, and smoother. Plus, the Rosa Arctica offers a dramatic restoration of hydration.

There are more interesting ingredients in this new cream, like Vitamin E (antioxidant and moisturizing proprieties) , squalane (a healing botanical lipid with a high affinity for skin to instantly restore and replenish), lipids (like cocoa and shea butters and essential fatty acids such as oleic, stearic and palmatic acid that help replenish skin’s barrier) and glycerin.

Kiehl’s Tip: use twice daily for a smoother, firmer and denser appearance.
Now, after the presentation day of October 11th, they offered as a Kiehl’s goodie bag. The Rosa Arctica cream was one of the two products we got! Isn’t that wonderful??? So, I am gonna try it and I will let you know my opinion. I might ask my mother to try it as I do not have fine lines or wrinkles. She is obviously the one that could tell me her sincere opinion about the product and I will notice how effective the cream is.
  
The Rosa Arctica cream is already available at the stores. It costs €59 and it comes in a jar of 50g.
In Greece you can find Kiehl’s products at Hondos Center Kolonaki, Hondos Center Glyfada and Attica, the Department Store, on Panepistimiou St.

Review: OLIVALOE Eye Cream by Olivera Cosmetics

It’s been about five months since I am using a new skin product by Olivera Cosmetic’s. Olivera Cosmetics is a greek brand of natural cosmetics that uses organic olive oil and organic aloe vera.

I tried the OLIVALOE Eye Cream. Just from the name we can imagine the ingredients: organic olive oil, organic aloe vera and also green tea, proprieties that nourish the eye area. Plus, it contains chamomile, provitamin B5, calendula and vitamin E and other ingredients that reduce bags, nourish and revitalize the delicate area around eyes and leave the skin smooth and bright. This eye cream has also anti-ageing proprieties and that make it  perfect for every age.

It does not contain mineral oils, silicone, Vaseline, parabens and propolyne glycol. Olivera Cosmetics loves us but also loves animals. So, no test on animals!

The cream is dense and rich. So when I take the product with my finger, I can get a small amount that is enough for the area of one eye. I think that’s cool because I do not apply more product or I do not throw away any product. That means that my eye cream will last for longer. The first time I applied the cream I thought it would be heavy and oily. But it is not! It really nourishes and hydrates my eye zone! The results last for all day long and not only you feel it but you can see it as well!

I got to say that the area around my eyes is really delicate and gets dry. Since I use this cream is well hydrated and so soft(more that before). I was really surprised when I saw results after 3 days!!! That was fast! After 5 months that I am using it, I find this eye cream FANTASTIC!

Τhe perfume is not anything special. It is really discrete and soft. Just from the perfume you can understand that it is a natural product. That’s not bad at all.

The cream is in a vase made of glass. You will receive it in a little box as seen in the photos. Really cute packaging!

It contains 40 ml of product and it expires 12 months after you open it. It costs €15, and I think that is a really good price for the quality of the product. You can buy it at Olivera’s Cosmetics site.

I am really proud because this product is MADE IN GREECE! I am proud when Greeks do such a good job and can be really competitive not only in their country but also all around the world. Olivera Cosmetics offers a high quality and can be really competitive with international brands!

Now I want to try the body milk and hand cream, too. Are you curious to try Olivera’s products? Or you have already tried them? Let me know your opinion and what do you think!!!


Kisses beauties,
Korina
