Ciao dupes! :)
Oggi vi vorrei parlare di alcuni prodotti che ho vinto nel giveaway di Giugno della pagina facebook della Bioalchemilla in collaborazione con Alkemilla Eco Bio Cosmetici. Il giorno dopo l’annuncio delle vincitrici del giveaway sono stata contatta dallo staff della Bioalchemilla che, con mia grande sorpresa, mi comunicava la vincita del giveaway e mi chiedeva i miei dati per la spedizione. I prodotti sono arrivati il giorno dopo (il servizio offerto da Bartolini come corriere è veramente ottimo) e io ho subito spacchettato il tutto impaziente! Ho preferito provare questi prodotti diverse volte per poi dire le mie opinioni e potervi fare una recensione completa di ognuno di essi. Spero che vi possa essere utile. ;)
Hello dupes! :)
Today I would like to talk to you about some products that I won during June’ giveaway from the facebook page of the italian brand Bioalchemilla in cooperation with Alkemilla Eco Bio Cosmetici. The day after they announced the winners of the giveaway I was contacted by Bioalchemilla’ staff who, with my great surprise, told me that I was one of the winners of the giveaway and asked for my shipping details. The products arrived the day after (the service offered by Bartolini as courier is really great) and I immediately opened up the box, I was really impatient! I preferred trying them different times before letting you know my opinions and giving you a complete review of each one of them. I hope it might be useful for you. ;)
Aloe Vera Gel
I have always wanted to try an aloe vera gel since that I have always read super positive reviews about his qualities: perfect for every type of skin, moisturizing, soothing and also perfect for a lot of skin problems. Well, I have to admit that Alkemilla’ gel has all this qualities! I used it as an after sun lotion to soothe my burnings and my skin was completely refreshed, I used to soothe some rednesses on my legs and in a couple hours they were already gone… In other words I am in love with it! This gel absorbs easily, is fresh and leaves on the skin a marvellous perfume. This gel is 99% bio, the tube contains 250 ml of product and costs 19,80€. You can find all the informations about is inci here.
This cleanser is in a maxi size, there are 500 ml of product and the data sheet assets that it is recommended for the cleansing of face, body and personal hygiene. Once applied it immediately gaves you a fresh sensation and you fell really “clean” and applied on your face is great as make up remover before going to bed. The size is a little bit troublesome but, since this product has many cleansing functions, is at the same time very practical to have with you a great quantity of it. The cost of this product is 7,90€ and you can find the info about is inci here.
I would like to talk to you about this couple of products together since they are part of the same line and I have always used them together. Talking about the body wash the first thing I noticed is that you need a little amount of product to wash all your body and it makes a little bubbles. After the body wash I have always applied the combined body cream; a light cream which dries easily and leaves your skin softer than before. Both the products have a scent which I personally love, and I think that sensual is the right name for this line! The fragrance is sweet, but not too much, it leaves a light veil of perfume on your skin and it lasts a lot and moreover, my boyfriend particularly appreciated the scent, perfect right? :P The body wash is sold at 9,90€ for 500 ml of product, while the body cream costs 18,50€ for 250 ml of product. You can find the inci of the products here for the body wash and here for the body cream.
Before talking to you about this product I would like to confess that I am not particularly with body scrubs and that I do not use them very often, but since I discovered this one, well, I started to like them. ;) I think that this is the perfect scrub, it delicately exfoliates and only removes the dead skin cells indeed my suntan (even if it is not much, unfortunately I still have to go on holidays) stayed untouched. I used it after the body wash, on the wet skin and, after remowing the product, my skin was smooth, soft and very bright and not irritated! I think that the fragrance on the skin is amazing, fresh and long lasting. This products costs 18,00€ for 250ml. You can find the complete inci here.
I used this oil as a super tanning just a couple of times and in minimum quantities because I am still too pale to use this kind of products without a sun cream. I noticed that once applied it absorbs easily and leaves the skin very soft and not oiled and also that when applied during summer nights on your legs and arms it gives to your skin a shiny effect and you will be noticed for sure. ;) I also tried it as a make up remover on my eyes and it is very effective and it does not irritate them, which is really important considering how sensible they are. This coconut oil is sold at 10,00€ for 200ml of product. You can find the inci here.
I tried this product as a hair mask before washing my hair applying it only at the end of my hair and leaving it there for about 20 minutes. I prefered to not apply it all over my hair since they tend to be oily and they are super straight. :) After washing my hair my har were softer and silky; furthermore the data sheet says that the monoi oil is very useful to protect your hair from the damages caused by the sun. This oil costs 11,00€ for 200ml of product; you can check the inci here.
Ci tengo a dirvi che questi prodotti sono tutti vegani, non testati sugli animali e tutti certificati ICEA per l’uso di prodotti completamente naturali. Penso che Alkemilla Cosmetics sia proprio un marchio di qualità e non vedo l’ora di provare altri loro prodotti! Colgo l’occasione per ringraziare nuovamente la Bioalchemilla per l’invio di questi fantastici prodotti e per le opportunità di vincita che ci sono ogni mese sulla loro pagina facebook: Bioprofumeria Alchemilla.
