I am so sorry for having to write a post for so long but you know……it is August…….vacation month…….lack of internet…..all that.
But now, I am officially back to start on our reviews and I have so many!
Today I will start with a cleansing product that I have been using during my vacation as I wanted to help my skin a little more against the extra trouble I was putting it through, with the sea, salt, sun, every day.
Castalia Sensial Gel Nettoyant Surgras
It is a face & body gentle daily cleanser for sensitive normal – combination skin.
It is a rather thick foaming gel that purifies the skin without disturbing its moisture levels.
Soap free and enriched with soothing and calming ingredients that help your skin regain its hydration.
It feels quite rich and luxurious on my skin and so soft……
It is not the best for removing your makeup but either way this is not why it is made for.
I have combination/oily skin and in the past I thought that the more drying cleanser I used, the better.
It is years now that I know how false and wrong is that for my skin.
Drying your skin from all its natural oils, you are forcing it to produce more and more oil.
And it never stops.
The ideal is to cleanse your skin with a good anti-irritating cleanser like this one that will help your skin to maintain its hydration, soothe it and protect it from irritations, redness etc.
I got this Castalia Cleanser inside a beauty box I was subscribed to, here in Greece.
Forgive me for not saying the beauty box brand, the beauties out there know for which one I am talking about, but I was very disappointed simply because I think their purpose is to provide mostly travel size or in some cases full size products not products like this one that says “free gift” on the package, probably from a previous brand offer that is left over and I may find it next month inside of a magazine.
I was really disappointed even from the first box I got, this is the second, as I chose a 3-month subscription after seeing a fantastic premiere box with top brands I always wanted to try, which these came in sample sachets.
And one last thing. After comparing my beauty box with the boxes of other girls of the same month, I noticed, and not only me, that there was a big difference of products and total cost of the box.
For example mine cost around 18 euro and others around 40 euros. That is an unforgivable difference.
I would love to hear your true opinion about it.
Anyway, I said I wouldn't say anything and I got carried away.
Back to the review.
I really really like this cleanser. It feels so soft and luxurious on my skin and I know it does good to it.
Along with some new skincare regime I adopted, for which I will talk about soon, my skin feels and seems relaxed and healthy.
I will repurchase it for sure.
If you have normal-combination skin but feel dehydrated you should give this a try.
It costs around 12,70 for 200 ml.
Stay healthy & beautiful
