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).

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.

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.

LaMer the moisturizing soft cream review

La Mer Moisturizing Cream Review

Hi guys

About a few months ago I’ve started to use La Mer moisturizer. Today I’m sharing with you my experience and wether or not it is worth the price?

La Mer the moisturizing soft cream


I love the packaging. The design is different. It looks nice and feels expensive when I have it my hand. The container is heavier than I expected. It’s white and has La Mer logo on it. There is a tiny spatula to take out the product.

The first thing that caught my attention after opening the lid was the smell. It’s amazing, considering that I’m not fan of smelly creams. It’s a huge change for me to love this one so much.

I take out a small amount of cream rub it between my fingers then apply it all over face and neck area. It gets absorbed rather fast to skin and feels really refreshing and nice. I would say that it has a cooling effect on my skin that calms it down immediately. It make my skin more vibrant and fresh. Since I don’t have any wrinkles I can’t tell if it has any affect on fine lines or not. But I’m sure it has done nothing for the unevenness on my skin.

LaMer soft cream

The La Mer soft cream does exactly what you expect it to do; moisturizing your skin. There is no oily residue or heaviness to it. Yet I believe that it’s a more of summer cream specially if you live in cold areas (like I do). I prefer a richer moisturizer for fall and winter.

Now lets talk about the price. One can purchase a 30 ml container for 170 $ at Sephora (1470 sek at It’s not a cheap cream by any means. Although it’s a good moisturizer there are many other good ones available which cost half the price. So if you are on the budget go for L’ancome Hydra Zen Moisturizing day cream, it’s as good as this one and it’s only 56 $ at Sephora. If money is not a concern to you go ahead and buy the LaMer moisturizing cream. This will be a luxury addition to your daily routine.
