Hello my lovelies!
I'd like to share with you something "personal"... My Apivita milk cleanser!
I was getting sick of my make-up wipes; yes, they're easy to use but eventually I felt they dried out my oily skin. So this time I opted for a milk cleanser for taking off my make-up (I cleanse my face morning/night with this fabulous Body Shop gel cleanser).
Apivita's Personal range consists of seven fragrance-free basic formulas rich in natural composition to a level of 96%. Isn't that amazing? They are:
- Moisturising day cream SPF10
- Day&night cream
- Cleansing milk
- Tonic lotion
- Gentle shower gel
- Moisturising body milk
- Moisturising body cream
They can be used as they are, or you can add a choice of Apivita's organic essential oils according to your skintype or your current mood- hence the "personal" tag.
So I went to Apivita's counter at Hondos Center; you should see it, they have a special working area where they mix the formulas with an array of 24 essential oils! I wasn't allowed to take a picture, though :(
The sales assistant asked for my skintype, looked at my skin and fixed me the milk cleanser. My recipe? 8 drops of geranium and 6 drops of lemon.
At this point I should warn you: as the products are fragrance-free, they get the scent from the added essential oils. And I'm not talking about artificial scent, it's the real thing in all its heady glory! Surprisingly, this milk cleanser's composition smells like a turkish delight- and it's so intense that it almost gives me a headache! As for its cleansing properties, it's ok- a bit "runny" for my taste but nevertheless it performs well.
So, what do you think? Have you bought anything from Apivita's Personal range? Would you consider the addition of essential oils as a novelty or an unnecessary step?
Happy blogging and reading and commenting to everyone!
