Review: Heliocare Ultra Gel + Endocare

Heliocare Ultra Gel

This is a 2-for-1 review about this set of Heliocare Ultra Gel + Endocare-C ampoules and Gelcream, bought at the end of this summer. It could even have been a 3-for-1 review, but I already posted my thoughts about Heliocare SPF 50 gel sunscreen, and my opinion is the same for the SPF 90 version. I’d like to remind you, however, that there really isn’t much of a difference in protection between an SPF 90 […]

Winter suncare: my body and lip care during these holidays

24 de diciembre

At this point, it’s no longer necessary to tell you that UVA rays (the bad guys, the melanoma and aging ones) are at it all year long so long as there’s daylight, right? No matter if it’s winter, if it’s overcast, cold, dreary, miserable, etc. So I wear sunscreen year-round, a habit I’m glad I got into from a very young age. Besides, I’ve never been much of a sun bunny anyway. For some reason […]

Review: Naobay HydraPlus Face Toner

Naobay HydraPlusFace Toner

I’d seen this brand mentioned in several Spanish beauty blogs, but I’d never tried any of their products until I chanced upon them in a beauty chain retailer in my town; it so happened that I had facial tonic in my shopping list and Naobay HydraPlus Face Toner seemed nice and was affordable (4.95€ for 6.75 fl.oz.) For those not familiar with Naobay, this is an eco-friendly Spanish brand of cosmetics located in Valencia: their […]

Review: Weleda Everon Lip Balm

Weleda Everon Lip Balm

This year I imposed myself the rule of using only one lipbalm at a time, rather than buying and keeping one in my handbag, one in the bathroom, one in my bedside table, as I used to do… nevertheless, Weleda’s Everon Lip Balm almost made me break my rule and go get another one ASAP, without using it up first. I haven’t done it because I want to finish this product, and recycle the container […]

Trying out: Paula’s Choice RESIST AHA and BHA

Review Paula's Choice AHA & BHA

In late August I ordered these Paula’s Choice RESIST AHA and BHA trial sizes from PC’s Spain site. These little guys have lasted quite a while, though now it’s time to think about a reorder. Would I buy this in full size? We’ll get to that in a moment. I haven’t used many Paula’s Choice products, but I’ve been familiar with this brand through founder Paula Begoun’s Cosmetics Cop site and books, which I first […]

My skincare staples: Heliocare gel 50 SPF sunscreen

review Heliocare gel SPF 50

Follow me at Bloglovin! Of all my cosmetics, Heliocare gel 50 SPF sunscreen is the one I’ve been using the longest, since age 23 or so (how many centuries have passed?), and if nothing changes, it’s likely I’ll continue using it, even though lately I’m interested in trying other options. Some time ago, I brought home this large 200ml tube, instead of my usual 50ml, feeling I was being clever and saving money. In fact, […]
