My impressions.

Oil liked.
It really cleanses the skin. Requires three presses on the pump enough to remove all the makeup, no matter how persistent and multi-layered it was.
Only mascara washes off completely, not have to clean up two-phase fluid. But what I often had with other hydrophilic oils.

Optimally the liquid oil to be easily distributed on the face. Works quickly, washes out with no problems, but I in any case, the second stage of purification using gel or foam.

Oil is consumed very sparingly. Use it every day for 4 months and not spent even half of the bottle. According to my calculations oil will be enough for eight months.

In General, a good working product. Health properties claimed by the manufacturer I felt. The only thing that stands out is the oil from the other series, it’s the fragrance. Smells of lemon and herbs without hemotest.

Will be unlikely to buy oil again. Yes, like, Yes, good, but not love…

My impressions.

About this balm, I read a lot of rave reviews and bought it with enthusiasm, hoping for a nice make-up remover Yes, even with Anti-age effect.

Then began my travails.

The main feature of the balm is its texture. This oil Euroopassa viscous substance. The set includes a spatula to get it from the jar.
In the face spread as easy as butter. For me personally of the unpleasant sensation. As if some fat smear on the face.

Balm unlike oil removes absolutely all makeup including mascara.
But he washed out, especially with the eyes. The slurry coats the lashes and seems to have all washed away, but my eyes still get. In General, the process is stretched and the plot thickens.

In addition, the spatula includes a Terry cloth. It is assumed that she remove this muck from the face will be nicer and faster. Napkin facilitates business, but it is still very necessary to wash off balm. I had to buy three more wipes and wash them in the washing machine at a time. Get constant Cycling of napkins drying on the battery.
As a means of daily removal of make-up, balm came.

Now, about the Anti-age effect.

On the website in the annotations to the balm a lot of things written, but very interesting there. But in instructions it is recommended to use the balm as a mask. And this is something there.

There is a feeling very moist skin after use, but still clean. Then I recently ran into some understanding. Smear (still brrrrr). The eye is not apply. A little massaging. Hold for 10-15 minutes. The mask does not leak. Slightly soluble heat from the skin, but the neckline goes down. Wash with hot water, then damp washcloth going.

And hot wipes fit into the procedure as in SPA-care beauty. If more lie at this time, and someone removes the oil with a napkin, goes washes it with soap and water (I keep lie), again rubbing his face, hmm, again, wipes again wipes again wipes.
After the mask, no cream need not apply.

Do the mask two times a week. It is enough for the year. I will not repeat.

The price is 43 pounds at the official online store of the brand.
