Dry skin solution: A-derma Exomega

Do you know that feeling of dry, itchy skin after taking a shower on cold winter mornings? Yup, so do I. I’ve been investing in more or less expensive lotions for years, trying to avoid scratching myself like crazy for hours…until my baby had a similar problem, atopic eczema. Her pediatrician recommended A-derma Exomega and it worked like a charm instantly, for both of us. 馃槈 Yes, I’m already guilty of stealing my child’s cosmetics, and she is only 10 months old! 馃榾

So, what A-derma says:

SOOTHES ATOPIC AND VERY DRY SKIN AND CALMS IRRITATION

EXOMEGA is the specialist for atopic and very dry skin and the first product range to profit from the soothing and immunoregulating qualities of Rhealba Oat Plantlets. Its formulas also contain Filaxerine, a complexe of active ingredients exclusive to the A-DERMA Laboratories, to restore the skin barrier.

What SMN says:

It does precisely what is claims in the official info above. And more! It saves time as you can skip applying lotion as its Cleansing oil doesn’t dry out the skin, not in the slightest. You might want to moisturize afterwards, especially if your skin is very dry. Emollient balm (or cream) is perfect for that purpose, even if you’re prone to acne – the tube is completely sterile.

Highly recommended for everyone with eczema or dry skin, from newborns to adults!

Would I repurchase: YES!

Price: Balm/cream: 23.95 euros for 400ml (currently on sale for 17.95 on Lookfantastic – click to see the offer; btw I’m not affiliated with anyone, I just like getting discounts 馃槈 ). Cleansing oil is around 15 euros for 200 ml.

Lanc么me Miracle Air de Teint

Ok, so it’s been a while, I’m fully aware. Even the baby is no good excuse. Normally I’m not into making (let alone sticking to!) New Year’s resolutions but if I had to make one this year it would most certainly be a blog related one… What good is a makeup obsession if you don’t get to share it with anyone, right? 馃檪

One of the products that I’ve fallen in love with since posting last year is Lanc么me’s Miracle Air de Teint. I’ve been searching for a foundation that is so light it can not be felt nor seen. I headed to the store and tried virtually every high-end brand on the back of my hand and this was the one that felt the lightest. No residue, nothing. Just airbrushed, blurred skin. I chose 010 Beige Porcelaine. Of course, a foundation this light can not provide much coverage, so if you need medium to full coverage, look further.

What Lanc么me says (official info HERE):

Miracle Air de Teint is Lanc么me’s 1st perfecting fluid foundation that feels as light as air, for the ultimate ‘no makeup’ look.

For the first time, Lanc么me has incorporated powder and blurring technology into its foundation to create a new, incredibly lightweight formula. 100% of women forget they are wearing it*.

*Self evaluation by 60 women.

What I say:

+ The most lightweight foundation to date!

+ Very easy to apply with fingertips, blends perfectly

+ Keeps skin matte for hours, retouch-free

+ Comes in 11 shades

– The bottle. People, make a pump version!

-Too light to provide heavier coverage

-The smell which is quite ”chemical”

I bought it from Feelunique for 38.40 euros. They often have sales and promotions going on, so check their site for decent offers!

Would I repurchase? Definitely!

What’s your fav foundation and which site(s) do you get it from?

xoxo, SNM
