Avene Nettoyante Mattifying Cleansing Foam


Hello my beauties!

How are you?

Here, in Greece, the last few days the weather is hot and humid like it’s August! That hot!
And with heat comes sweat. And with humidity comes shine.

So all we can do is change some of our skincare and makeup routine choosing oil free and mattifying products depending our skin type, but even drier skin girls make some changes as well.

The first thing that all of us do is choose a oil free moisturizer and sunscreen in order to reduce the oil production and the shine.

But have you ever thought that it all begins with your morning cleansing?
I have never given it a serious thought until this product knocked my door.

Avene Mousse Nettoyante Mattifying Cleansing Foam*



Let me first talk to you about my cleansing routine.

The first and last thing I do is wash my face. Until now used to have one cleansing gel for all uses.

I am not the kind of girl to use cleansing milks first to take off my makeup, right or wrong, and I always used foaming gels to take off my makeup and clean my face.

And the same goes for the morning. I wash my face with the same gel.

And then came Avene Mattifying Cleansing Foam*.

I started using it in my morning routine as it does not do a good job removing my makeup.
Well, actually it is not a makeup remover even though they say that works for that too.



It is a super gentle, foaming, not drying cleansing gel for normal/combination/oily skin that takes away all the oil from my skin prepping it for my everyday makeup routine.

It smells like old fashioned crème, at least to me, which I love and even though it does not feel dry at all, you feel and see your face clean, refreshed and nourished.

As every other Avene product, it contains pure Avene thermal spring water which soothes irritated skin.

It contains base soap that tightens pores and glutamic acid that regulates sebum production.

Of course it is paraben free as all Avene products.

It is Avene’s answer to all that super drying cleansing gels for normal/combination/oily skin and I really like it!

You don’t need to drain your skin for not the oil come through. It will either way and you will have dehydrated your skin.

They say it works best with the Avene Mattifying Fluid Moisturizer which targets the T-zone and claims to eliminate the shine but I haven’t tried it yet!

It retails at  14, 00 euro.

Which is your favorite cleansing gel?

So, have you tried this one?
If not, you should give it  try especially if you have combination/oily skin.

As always,

Stay healthy & beautiful

Bioten. Beauty inspired by Nature

Hello my beauties!!

I hope you are well and have a big heart to be able to forgive me for not writing a post for so many days....

So today I want to talk to you about a drugstore skincare range that is not given the attention it deserves mostly because of the low prices that come along.

BIOTEN

Wide range of products filled with natural ingredients and made under the latest technology to provide the care your skin need and wants with very affordable prices.
Over the past years we all became aware of many dangerous ingredients we used to put on our skin without knowing. 
We searched, asked, tested and we are still learning. We want the products we use to be as much as harmless as we can.
Bioten combines natural extracts to create safe and effective prducts for almost every skin type and its needs.
The word "affordable" is an understatement" but as is "quality" when it comes to Bioten.
I used to see them on the supermarket selves and not give much attention. That was until I came across with the Moisturising Day Cream with quince nectar.


 It was summer, I wanted something simple and moisturising, my budget was limited so I gave it a go. 
It was exatly what I wanted at the time. It moisturised my skin without feeling it heavy. 
It is great for combination skin but there is one for the ones with dry skin as well. 
Price: 5.35 euros

Along with that day cream I tried the Cleansing Gel frm the same line 




and I was very happy with it as well. It has a lovely smell and it feels really refreshing on your skin. Takes away your makeup, your skin feels very clean and my pores seem more "relaxed" if that makes sense to you! 
Price: 3.50 euros

Last but not least I have on my kit the facial wipes of the same line. 
I don't often use wipes to take off my makeup but I always have a pack of them. I use on clients, to correct any mistake or to quickly "clean" brushes between if I have more than one makeup session to do. They are not oily, not very wet and have a very fresh smell.
Price: appr. 2 euros (they are usually on sale 2in1)

These are the products that I have personally use from Bioten.
I am very pleased with their quality, price and the feeling that I don't damage my skin. 
They are the perfect range for younger girls that are starting now using skincare!

Have you tried any Bioten Products? 
What do ou think of them?

As always.....stay healthy & beautiful!

p.s two of these products were sent to me for review and above you see my honest opinion.

Winter Skin Routine

Hello my beauties!

I hope you are well and prepared for the sudden (yet logical) drop of temperature.
Winter is officially here and many things change. Our clothes, our shoes, our hair, nail polishes etc. 
Can our Skin Routine stay the same? No!
So along with other things, we change the products we use, as our skin' s needs differ from season to season. 
But let's take it step by step.

Skin

During summer, the weather is hot and humid and our skin tends to produce more oil that usual. So we tend to use rather strong and dry cleaners to make sure that our skin is super clean and light/very light moisturisers.
But when the weather gets cold, our skin is trying to keep its natural balance but wind, low temperature can make even the oil skin, dry. You can imagine the needs of an already dry skin!
That is why is very important to change the products we use depending on the weather.
I personally have normal/oily skin and although at summer I use very light, gel feeling, moisturisers when winter comes I tend to choose a little heavier ones because I can feel my skin needing something more.
For example, I will show you the products I used until now and which I just started.

Summer.
Clinique Facial Soap
La Roche Posay Effaclar Mat
These are one of my favourite products and they helped me get through summer!
You all know the facial soap by Clinique, I have been using this since I started washing my face!
As for the Effaclar Mat, what can I say? It was love at first sight! (see post here)

Winter.


Avon Anew Revitalizing Cleanser


Clinique repairwear uplifting spf15




I have been using the Avon cleanser since last year, except the summer months, and it has become one of my favourites. It has these small blue balls inside that they melt once you clean your face. It is a moisturising cleanser that leaves my skin clean and dewy. 
As for the moisuriser, I know what most of you might say. This is not for you age. Yes I know, but  as I was sent this to try it and once I put it on my face I fell in love. It is thick yet light. Absorbs quickly and it smells like sunscreen. It does leave a little "white face" but I don't mind once i put on my BB cream and I don't take any photos. And of course it is never too early to prevent some things from falling down..!

Foundation

Well, the same rules apply here as well. 
During the hot and humid days of summer you need not to trouble your face with heavy products and foundations. A simple bb cream should be enough. 
But, I understand that many women don't have the almost flawless skin that a plain bb cream would be enough. Among them I am myself. That is why I always try to find something that has a little more coverage but still feels light. It was not easy. But I did it!

Dior HydraLife BB cream spf30 PA++
This was a real discovery for me because I never was satisfied with any of the bb creams I would try. My skin is not flawless and I needed a little bit more and with SPF and not to make my T-zone look its worst. 
Did I ask too much?  Yes.
Did I find what I was looking for?  Yes.

It is a moisturiser with the coverage of a foundation. It has more SPF control than most of the other bb creams and it doesn't make me oily. It is very good for my skin and I feel it as a veil. 

One thing I do not like is that as most bb creams comes out in one colour. Well, this one is rather dark and I do not see it fit most skin colours. Now that my tan is beginning to fade away , it starts to be dark for me. But I like it so much that I am going to use it in the winter as well for everyday use mixing it with a drop of light foundation. 

That is for my skin care routine. What is yours? Have you tried any of the above?

Stay tuned for the second part of my Winter Routine - MakeUp.

Stay healthy & beautiful
