Just a quick post today about something I really wanted to share.
First and foremost, thank you so much for the lovely comments & for the support. As you can see, I am continuously adding things on here - have created a facebook page, began to use twitter & instagram a lot more, added a blogroll with some of the blogs I love to keep up with, so I hope you enjoy dropping by this blog even more, if you do already, which would make me very happy.
On the actual post - I was so excited to share a new discovery, which will definitely find a way into my regular skincare routine.
As you all might know, I fell into the hype of the famous Bioderma micellar cleansing water and for good reason! This product feels amazing on the skin - light, natural, refreshing, calming, yet removes e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. and leaves the skin super clean and well cared for. Since picking my first bottle up and using up quite a few ones ever since, I've always dreaded the feeling of slowly, but surely running low as I have only been able to spot this product back home in Latvia and (for my great excitement) also in Bulgaria during my summer trip there.
I have been falling addicted to the stuff (I'm not going into specifics, but trust me, it's embarrassing and borderline funny) and were planning my upcoming move of repurchasing this somehow, as - you can see - I'd come to soon enough.
Just before my weekend trip, I read a well-timed blog post by some of my favorite Danish beauty bloggers the Beauty Junkie where Cille shared her February Favorites. As I have tried quite a few products based on her recommendations and haven't been left disappointed, I grabbed the Nivea Sensitive 3 in 1 Micellar Cleansing Water as soon as I saw it with the corner of my eye.
Where do I begin? For half the price, this product is a winner on that alone. However, it also works. For me, it does the same job and while it might not feel as... luxurious as the Bioderma and haven't been using it consistently for months, I couldn't be happier with the product and how it gets the job done, which means I will not only continue to use it, but will gladly repurchase another bottle. It removes my eye makeup without irritating my eyes and prepares my skin for the second (proper) cleanse in the evenings.
Do I still love Bioderma? Oh, yes. Will I purchase a bottle (or two... or three) next time I am in Latvia again? Pretty sure. There is just something about it, that makes for a lifetime commitment and loyalty.
However, I couldn't be happier with stumbling upon such a mighty alternative. Finding an affordable, affective, readily available product is really a win in my beauty books and if you happen to be in the market for saving money, trying out a new cleansing water or switching things up a bit to begin with, I can only add to Cille's recommendations - it's really worth a try.
Let me know, if you've tried it and what do you think! I'd love to know. Hope you enjoyed the post and are having a wonderful start of the week, I will talk to you soon!
A very exciting (for me) fashion post coming up on Friday, so stay tuned!
