Face Cleansing Duo That Rocks

5/06/2015



I feel very responsible since I've settled my mind on a mission to use up most of my skincare bits before buying anything new. Let's just say that I've mostly progressed at the face cleanser front since I've finished my all-time favorite cleanser - Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Balm and I've also finished my favorite drugstore cleanser - Balea Pink Grapefruit face wash. Next on my 'to use-up' list are these two you can see on the photo and I've discovered that (surprisingly) they work amazingly together. In this Cleansing Duo That Rocks post I want to revisit products which I believe deserve even more praise than they get. One of the most gentle, most soothing cleansers I've had the chance to try is the Alpha-H Balancing Cleanser. Packaging is the only thing I'm not the biggest fan of - I've noted a strange scent in the cap which was just foul to me so I've chucked the cap. Next thing I noticed is that the pump got clogged so I had to wash the cleanser remnants stuck and hardened inside - wasn't too hard or laborious of a task as every part of the pump can be set apart and I'm glad it's functional again. The reason I love it so much is that it's suitable to be used in the morning. It's simply perfect for a quick, unobtrusive morning cleanse when I'm not wearing make-up and all I want my cleanser to do is to take off any possible remaining bits of a serum/night cream/oil I might have used the night before. This one does just that and it's very comforting to be used after this cleansing oil I love to pieces. L'Occitane Shea Butter Cleansing Oil is the reason I look forward to evenings more than I usually do - it's such a pampering oil which feels beautiful on the skin and most importantly - it takes literally every last scrap of make-up from my face. The scent is so comforting and wonderful however the texture is what I got hooked on. It feels emollient but non-sticky and non-heavy. Impressively enough, it even takes off my favorite yet most stubborn mascara of all - the L'Oreal So Couture Volume Million Lashes mascara. That one gives me such a fab flutter but man, it's a pain in the but to remove and this L'Occitane cleansing oil proved to be its enemy - with no special rubbing or thugging it removes it as if it was a regular mascara (it is quite hardcore people). And with this Alpha-H/L'Occitane pairing my combo skin is very happy as there are no extra blemishes, no redness, no irritation and even the dehydrated parts of my face seem to be balanced. At the same time I'm looking forward to using them up as it will set path to new purchases but I'm also sad as I'm damn sure I'm going to miss this power couple.

Osjecam se kao prilicno odgovorna mlada dama nakon sto sam odlucno sebi postavila novi cilj a to je da necu kupiti niti jedan novi komad preparative dok ne potrosim vecinu proizvoda iz trenutacne rotacije. Recimo da sam do sada najvise napredovala na polju cistaca lica posto sam potrosila meni najdrazu umivalicu svih vremena - Oskia Renaissance balzam za ciscenje a takodjer sam do posljednje kapi potrosila i omiljenu umivalicu drogerijskog ranga - Balea Pink Grapefruit gel za umivanje. Slijedeci na mojoj 'za potrositi' listi stoje naredna dva cistaca koja vidite na fotografiji a za koja sam otkrila da zajedno funkcionisu iznenadjujuce dobro. Ovim clankom o dvije umivalice koje cine superodlicanfantasticnodivan tandem takodjer zelim da vratim u fokus proizvode za koje vjerujem da zasluzuju jos vise paznje nego koju trenutno uzivaju. Jedan od najnjeznijih, najblazih cistaca lica koji sam imala priliku isprobati je Alpha-H Balancing Cleanser. Pakovanje je jedina stvar na koju imam par zamjerki - za pocetak, primjetila sam da se cudan miris razvio u poklopcu. Taj miris mi je zaista smetao i bio mi je odbojan tako da je poklopac zavrsio u kanti za smece. Potom sam primjetila da se pumpica zaglavila tj. u njoj su se zaglavili ostaci kremastog cistaca koji su se osusili i stvrdnuli. Morala sam da cijelu pumpicu ocistim i ucinim 'prohodnom' sto (srecom) nije bilo previse tesko posto se svaki dio mehanizma pumpice sa lakocom odvrce i rasklapa. Drago mi je prijaviti da sam uspjela u naumu i pumpica radi kao nova. Razlog zbog kojeg sam zaista mnogo zavoljela ovu umivalicu jeste zbog toga sto sto je odlicna za jutarnje umivanje. Cak bih rekla da je idealan kremasti cistac u tu svrhu, kada ne nosim make-up i jedino sto ocekujem od cistaca jeste da ukloni eventualne ostatke nocne kreme/seruma/ulja kojima sam tretirala kozu lica noc ranije. I zaista, ovaj Alpha-H cistac to radi savrseno te je jednako ugodan kao zavrsno ciscenje nakon fantasticnog ulja za ciscenje lica i uklanjanje sminke kojim sam opsjednuta. Zbog L'Occitane ulja za ciscenje lica sa karite puterom pocela sam da se radujem vecenjem ritualu njege lica mnogo vise nego ranije. Volim ga jer je opustajuce i divne, luksuzne formulacije koja grli kozu na gotovo pa poetski nacin a sto je najbitnije - uklanja apsolutno svaki trag make-upa i necistoca sa lica. Puderasti miris karite linije mi je takodjer divan i prijatan no tekstura je ta koja me zadrzala. Tako je maziva a opet nije teska niti ljepljiva. Dovoljno je jaka da ukloni meni najdrazu ali ujedno i najtvrdoglaviju maskaru od svih - L'Oreal So Couture Volume Million Lashes. Uz nju mi trepavice izgledaju prekrasno ali covjece, tako je tesko skinuti! L'Occitane ulje je pak doraslo situaciji i bez znacajnog trljanja ili zatezanja koze je uklanja kao da se radi o standardnoj maskari (ruku na srce, prilicno je tvrdokorna). Moje lice mjesovite koze je jako sretno sa ovom Alpha-H/L'Occitane kombinacijom posto nema bubuljica, nema crvenila ni iritacija a cak su i dehidrirani dijelovi balansirani. U isto vrijeme jedva cekam da potrosim ove dvije umivalice posto ce mi pruziti priliku da isprobam nesto novo ali isto tako sam tuzna posto znam da ce mi ovaj mocni dvojac nedostajati.
