Prismologie: Shower Gel Bergamot & Citrine (Review)

I love bath products, especially the shower gel kind and with a more luxurious fragrance and texture, so the Prismologie’s shower gel with Bergamot and Citrine is exactly like this!

With minimalist and colorful packaging, Prismologie products, a British brand I met at the Cosmoprof Bologna last year (a huge beauty fair here in Italy), call a lot of attention not only to their design, but also for their quality.

• Prismologie: Yellow Day Shower Gel (Bergamot and citrine)

Prismologie Shower Gel: bergamot & citrine

I’m not a big fan of products with strong fragrances, but at the shower, I like a shower gel with a good fragrance, it doesn’t need to leave a strong scent on the skin, but a good smell in the air during the shower.

The fragrances really influence my mood at my shower time and I love products with a nice fragrance and this one with bergamot and citrine from the Prismologie’s Yellow Day line is incredible!

All product lines of the brand have a different color and fragrance and I loved this one! I also tried the pink line, check it out here on my Review of Prismologie’s Hand cream.

 

Prismologie Shower Gel: Bergamot and Citrine

The brand also brings a bit of positivity into our lives, after all, the small details are what make a difference, and this shower gel brings the following text on the packaging: Stand tall. Feel radiant. Spread some sunshine.

This shower gel from Prismologie has a light texture and it’s very pleasant to use during the shower, leaving a delicious fragrance in the bathroom and lightly on the skin.

The skin gets soft and with that velvety touch, but remember that as it’s just a shower gel, it is to clean the skin and does not have the function of a hydrant. Do not forget to use a moisturizer later.

If you also love high-end bath/shower products that bring that different texture, it could be a good choice of shower gel for you to try.

Prismologie is a British brand and you can find it easier in the UK, but you can also find it online, like on the website above.

Combray Facial Oil Review (Complete)

One of my favorite skincare products at this moment is the Combray Facial Oil (a regenerating face oil) which is a facial oil with only two ingredients and it has made my skin AMAZING! It is an antioxidant and multifunction oil.

 

And if you also have oily skin and you were scared just to read the word oil, wait a minute, because I also have oily/combination skin and the product is recommended for all skin types. Yes, I was also afraid of oils at first, but once you find an interesting product, you understand that even oily skins can use oil products, but attention, just apply the right amount to your skin and choose the right product. Anyway, let’s go back to Combray Facial Oil review. (This is a spontaneous review, I really liked the product, it’s not a sponsored blog post).

Óleo Combray: Review

Combray Facial Oil contains only 2 ingredients and it’ss a multifunctional oil, but what does it promise?

It is an anti-aging treatment, which moisturizes the skin, soothes and regenerates it, and protects the softness of the skin.

I should add that I LOVE skincare products, but I had never been so excited about a single product as I am with this one, since I noticed visible improvements on a kind of a bad skin time I went through a while ago, while it was also very cold here in Milan, anyway, I talk more about my experience bellow.

• Combray Facial Oil: my favorite facial oil

Combray Facial Oil: review

Like I wrote above, the Facial Oil from Combray has several functions and properties in one single product.

You probably noticed in this last photo that the bottle is almost halfway through, so I really try a skincare product for a long time, because generally cosmetics are not products that give you immediate results and according to the brand’s information, I read that better results were visible after one month of using the product, by the time I’m writing this full review, I am already using Combray facial oil for almost 3 months every day, twice a day, and I’m really enjoying it.

Combray Facial Oil is rich in antioxidants and it contains only two (magic) ingredients: grape seed oil and another one called Oxofulleram, which is an antioxidant. The product has no other ingredients, preservatives, coloring or perfume and besides it all, the brand is cruelty free!

• Combray Facial Oil: product’s purposes

  • Anti aging
  • Hydration
  • Calming and regenerating the skin
  • Protect skin against oxidation caused by stress, pollution and inflammation

According to the brand’s website, they have clinical studies that demonstrate high product efficacy in reducing the appearance of free radical damage caused by oxidative stress, aging, sun, air pollution and inflammation.

In fact, you already start to see a difference in your skin in the early days, but of course I went deeper into the use of the product and I waited two months to be able to properly see the effects of the product on my skin and be able to actually review it properly.

 

• Combray Óleo Facial: How to use it

Combray Oil Review

The product should be applied after washing your face, I have been using it both in the morning and at night and since it has several functions, I have been trying an almost minimal daily skincare routine: applying a cleanser gel to wash my face, an eye cream and the Combray facial oil.

Just a few drops for the face and neck, the recommended by the brand is: 6 drops, I think I have a small face or not for having a very dry skin, I often apply only 4 or 5 drops and that’s enough to my face. You should apply the product on the face and massage it with your fingertips, so that the product is better absorbed by your skin.

As you can see by the color of the oil in the photos, it has a dark color and the only care is actually massaging the product so it is well absorbed by the skin (it does not get your skin colored or anything) and take care of waiting a little at night and do not apply and lie on a white pillowcase straight after the application. But the brand itself has the instructions on how to apply the product and which are the movements indicated on the package.

 

• Benefits and my experience with Combray Facial Oil:

Combray Facial Oil (Review)
I started using the Combray Facial Oil at a time when it was very cold here in Milan and my skin, that’s actually a bit oily, was dry and even peeling close to the eye area. In fact I was even afraid to try a new product with the skin like that, but since I had met the brand on Cosmoprof last year (a cosmetics beauty fair that’s very respected worldwide), so I thought it was worth the try, since it has purposes like to moisturize and regenerate the skin.

And it was great, it helped my skin recover very well and in the following days and it also helped to keep it beautiful during the very cold days here, applying the product every day, I had no problem at all in my skin getting dry. It was super soft and hydrated all the time, even when I was in Switzerland and we had negative temperatures such as -6˚.C

I felt that in addition to being softer, my skin looks very moisturized and bright, in fact, I find myself in a great skin moment and I believe that the product also played a part on it. I also try to eat very healthy and, of course, that is something that helps to have healthy and beautiful skin. But with regards to the cold weather, I believe Combray Facial Oil has helped a lot in keeping my skin hydrated.

Facial oil Review: Combray

To summarize: I really liked Combray Skincare Facial Oil because the daily application left my skin looking healthy, soft and moisturized even on the very cold winter days. Plus, it’s a multifunction product that makes it easy for anyone who wants more everyday convenience and I also really enjoyed their travel size packaging, I’ve been using it straight on all my last trips.

The Combray brand is from the Netherlands, but Combray Facial Oil is sold and delivered worldwide by the brand’s website and you can get 20% OFF when you buy with the coupon code: MANU20 (the coupon is valid for only one month, so enjoy it while you can). Website: Combray Skincare

Eucerin Complete Repair Moisturizing Lotion (Review)

A good body moisturizer is always important in our body care routine and for those of you who have or are facing a very dry skin, I tried the Eucerin Complete Repair Moisturizing Lotion, an intensive moisturizing lotion with 10% urea and I’ve been loving it!

Eucerin Hidratante Complete repair

I have been really liking Eucerin products for a few years now, since some years ago when I first tried a cleanser for rosacea or reddish skin that I really liked. But returning to this moisturizer review, Eucerin’s Complete Repair Moisturizing Lotion is one of those lotions with a more consistent texture and it really moisturize the skin very well, after all, it’s a product to dry skin.

 

• Eucerin Complete Repair Moisturizing Lotion: Review

Eucerin Loção Hidratante Intensiva

The Eucerin Intensive Complete Repair moisturizing Lotion has 10% urea and aquaporin technology, I believe that among the two of them, urea is more famous in general. Urea is a component that can bring the water present inside the blood vessels into the skin cells, meaning that it has a strong hydrating action on our skin and it’s an important ingredient in many body lotions.

But the aquaporin technology was new to me and I went to give it a little research to understand it better. Aquaporins are channels that are on the cell membrane and have the function of driving the water molecules in and out of these structures, as well as blocking the passage of other substances.

Therefore, the use of this technology in cosmetics has the function of activating the production of aquaporins, as a result, they increase irrigation in the skin region and it can improve hydration capacity by up to 50%. That being said, the combination of this technology with urea actually creates a very strong moisturizing product to our skin and the results are visible.

In practice, I found that the intensive moisturizing lotion is really intensive and it’s great for dry skin or for when your skin gets drier during the cold days. After you apply the product, the skin is already soft at the time, of course for long-term results, you need to apply it everyday.

Eucerin Intensive Moisturizing Lotion, U$ 18.06.

On the instructions it says you should apply the product as many times as necessary during the day, as my skin is not usually very dry, but since here in Italy we are in the winter season, my skin ends up getting drier, but still, I applied it only once a day, after a shower. And it was great to my skin.

Another interesting thing about this body moisturizer is that it actually leaves the skin moisturized for long hours, it is not one of those lotions you apply on the skin and shortly after the skin has the same dry texture as before. It actually leaves the skin softer and moisturized for a much longer time.
