Gatineau Anti Aging Gommage Face Scrub

1) Physical exfoliator (contains physical exfoliating particles)

2) Chemical exfoliator (usually contains either AHA or BHA)

3) Gommage (contains enzymes or other cellular dissolving agents)

Gommage by Gatineau looks like a rich cream without any physical exfoliating particles. The texture of the exfoliator is slightly sticky; I take it as a benefit, as a sticky texture better picks up dead … Read more

2) The cleansers are very gentle to the skin, leave it in a good condition and don’t cause … Read more

Elixir Ultime oil is a cult and award winner in hair industry. But the high price of the product does not make you to run to the shop without a second thought. I’ve decided to write this review in order to help those people, who still consider if Elixir Ultime is worth giving a try or not. There are four different versions on the market: for colour-treated hair (in pink), for damaged hair (in green), for fine/sensitized hair (in purple) … Read more

Micelle Solution by Bioderma

Micelle Solution by BiodermaI believe “Bioderma” made an excellent advertisement and promotion throughout You Tube, as it seems every beauty blogger has this cleanser and they indirectly influence others to buy it just by keep mentioning it all the time. And after some hesitation I was influenced to buy it as well. I thought “If so many people have it, it HAS TO BE good!”

Recently micelle solutions became very popular cleansers mostly because:
1) they are very quick and easy to … Read more
