GlamGlow DreamDuo Review

Hi guys

GlamGlow DreamDuo

It is time for another product review. This one called GlamGlow DreamDuo. It’s an over night treatment and supposed to give you a makeup-ready skin in the morning. The packaging is decent. It’s silver and black with a big star on the lid. Opening the lid the first thing that caught my attention was the scent which I get used to pretty fast. I can’t tell exactly what it reminds me of but I’m sure that I’ve tried something before with similar scent. The container is divided in two section one is filled with a white serum and another one is filled with grayish creamy substance.

According to instruction one should wait about 30 second between applying them. The white serum is the first step.  While it’s not particularly moisturizing , it makes my skin feel fresh. I usually start brushing my teeth straight after applying it, this way it sits on  the skin for a few minutes. Then I apply the grey one. This one has more weigh to it and won’t be absorbed as fast as the white serum. It does not feel greasy or heavy though.

To be honest I didn’t expect so much when I bought the DreamDuo. I had some discount and decided to try this one out. But I have to admit that the result was incredible.  After the first night I could see the difference on my skin. It looked more even and fresh. I even realized that my foundation looked better on my skin. I was so happy and impressed by the result that I decided to use it every night. I mean who doesn’t like to have a perfect skin everyday, right? I felt that I found the answer to all my skin problems, I was on the moon.

Unfortunately after a 5-6 days some red blemishes appeared on my T-Zone.  Since this product was the only change I had made in my skin routine I stoped using it immediately. It took only four five days before my skin went back to its normal state. But I couldn’t let it go since the first result was really good I was determined to find a way to use GlamGLow DreamDuo. So I started to do some experiences to find the best way of using it for my skin type. Long story short I found out that for a combination skin type – like mine-it was best to use DreamDuo every other night and use a normal night cream in between to get an amazing result.

I need to say that I’m not strict about this routine. For example when I have an important event to attend to and I want my make up to be perfect I may use it two nights in a row but I make sure that my skin will rest the night after that.

Over all I love GLamGlow DreamDuo over night mask. I think no matter what is your skin type you can use it. I think those with dry skin can use it every night, I envy you for that by the way. Those with an oily T-zone may find my routine more appropriate for their skin type. But  if you have an oily skin, in my opinion, it is best to use it occasionally.

Best Balm Cleanser (Product Review)

Hi Guys

If you have been following my blog you know that I’ve been looking for a good balm cleanser for a while. Not long time ago I’d tried The Body Shop balm cleanser and got disappointed (read about it here).

The best balm cleanser

After searching and reading so many reviews I ended up buying the Total Renew Balm from Biotherm (34$/125ml) and the Makeup melter by Ciaté (20$/40ml).

Biotherm Total Reniew Balm

The packaging is not something especial. It’s the bright orange color like many other products by Biotherm. The texture is slightly more dense than what I expected. As a result a small amount goes a long way.

While using this product avoid the eye area since it can burn your eyes out, believe me it hurts like hell. So if you are going to choose this one I suggest to use an eye makeup remover to clean your eyes. Other than this negative point this balm makeup remover is really good. It will remove all your makeup throughly and leave your skin clean and fresh. In my experience the balm turns to soap-like-texture after massaging with vet finger.  As a consequence it has the tendency of drying out the skin. So I don’t think this is a good choice for those with dry skin.

Makeup Melter Ciaté

This one comes in silver and black small box with lots of stars and a small bow on it.The container is a bright grey glass with a silver lid. I like the packaging it looks nice.

The texture is heavenly soft and creamy. It melts instantly into the skin and I can literally see the makeup dissolving with it immediately. It’s so gentle yet affective . Then you can use a cotton pad or a cloth to clean your face. There is no need to use water at all but you can rinse your face at the end if you like to.

For me this is the perfect product for sensitive skin. In addition to all that, this is vegan friendly product which makes me love it. The only down side is the price. Although the 20$ price tag does not seem a lot considering the size (40ml) and the fact that one has to use this almost everyday I would say the Makeup Melter by Ciaté is more on the expensive side.  If that’s not an issue for you go a head and buy it I’m sure you will love it.

Skin Reaction

None of these cleanser caused any skin problem for me which led me to the conclusion that The Body Shop balm Cleanser was the reason for all those breakouts on my forehead and chicks.
