Hello my beauties, how are you doing lately? The weather outside is getting better and better each day, even thought we had a hail few days ago, so I`m feeling great! Especially because today I want to show you and share the first impressions on the skin care products by the famous European brand Balea. This is a very popular drugstore brand and I had a few products by Balea in the past and even talked about them on my blog (here), so I was super excited to show you everything I got. So let us begin ;)
So the very first product I want to talk about is Balea Flower Frost Body Lotion from a limited winter edition. I`m not a huge fan of rose fragrance in beauty products, but I almost don`t feel it in this lotion, unlike a sweet fruity aroma of passion fruit, it is divine. Even though Frost Flower is a winter body lotion, the texture of the product is pretty light and even a little bit runny. It makes my skin silky and lightly moisturized, so I think I`ll be using it in the summer with pleasure. Unfortunately, I haven`t found a link on the official Balea site on this product, probably because it was a limited addition.
The next product is a Balea Handcreme 2in1 Pflege & Maske mit Macadamia - Nussöl - it is a heavy moisturizing hand cream and mask with an oil of macadamia nut. I was not expecting it will be so nourishing, there is a huge amount of the macadamia seed oil in this cream, I even pretend to use it in winter, when I struggle with a dry skin on my knees, elbows and feet. The product has a very pleasant scent as well, but it takes quite a time to absorb into the skin.
Balea Erfrischendes Waschgel is an everyday washing gel for a normal and mixed skin type. It has an extract of lotus and bamboo, which helps to keep a natural balance of the moisture in the skin. I also found a Citric Acid in the list of the ingredients, it helps to clean the clogged pores and black heads, preventing the appearance of the new ones. I`m very excited to try it out, hope it will not dry out my skin.
The Balea Pflegendes Gesichtswasser or simply a Toner by Balea, is a product I already had in the past. It has no alcohol or ethanol, so even a people with a very sensitive or acne prone skin can use it on a daily basis. It has a very light and sweet scent and I love to use it as a makeup remover, because it gently and thoroughly removes the residue of a makeup and oil from the skin, without drying or irritating it. I also use it after the facial mask or right after I wash my face, to help my favourite facial cream absorb deeply into the skin.
The next four items I want to talk about are four different face mask by Balea. I really love treating my skin with mask, I always forget to apply them on though :) I got the one with Lavender - Lavendelmousse Maske, as I understand it suppose to calm down the irritation and heal the skin; the one with Vanilla and Raspberry - Himbeer Vanille Maske, it has an extract of shea butter, so it should moisturize the skin and prevent the dryness; Totes Meer Maske or Dead Sea Mask with a salt and huge amount of useful minerals, it removes the dead skin cells and opens the pores, this one I used already and I really loved it, even though it gave my skin a burning sensation (just a little bit), I think because of the sea salt. And the fourth facial mask is Feuchtigkeitsmaske or a Moisturizing Mask, with a thermal water and a sea weed. All the masks are vegan, there are two masks in one pack, each has 8 g / 0,0.28oz, but you can use one bag three times, because this quantity is enough for three faces :)
The next two items I pretend to settle in my bag, because I know I will always need them close to me in the summer. It is a small travel sized care cream and a lip balm, I haven`t found the links to these products, but I really loved them both. Fresh citrus scent and a nice moisturizing abilities, it is everything I need at the moment. And just a few little words about the Balea Badesalz Sanfte Erholung ( Bath Salt Jasmine & Lilly) and a Balea Badeperlen Tiefe Entspannung (Bath Pearls Black Orchid and Vanilla). Both products meant to deeply relax, calm down and satisfy our noses, because they have a very strong and sweet scent.
And, finally, the very last, but not least product in my today`s haul is Balea Augen Make-up Entfernerpads ölfrei, it is an oil free cotton pads, which help to remove the eye makeup without any difficulties. I`m sorry that my post was so huge today, usually I`m a little bit less eloquent, but I hope you lied it. Stay tuned to see the detailed review of the products from my Huge Drugstore Haul post, talk to you very soon :*
