I cleaned the bins and I found a bunch of jars with luxury cosmetics, which was put off “for a thought”, but did not wait in the wings.
Therefore, I decided to write some useful posts about cosmetics that are not worth the money.
1. Helena Rubinstein Pure ritual Black peeling - Double action black peeling
At first glance, Black peeling from HR meets all the requirements that we expect from a suite:
1) solid packaging made of expensive plastic, convenient lid, elegant design;
2) a pleasant smell and magnificent texture, which is transformed from a thick cream with small scrubbing particles into a gentle massage oil;
3) meditative ritual of application: peeling should be rubbed in a circular motion, doing a facial massage and turning it into oil.
Everything seems to be perfect. Why am I throwing HR Black into the peeling basket?
, peeling is not effective.
Yes, it's fun to apply. Yes, facial massage is beneficial and some exfoliation is observed.
But this peeling does not fight against comedones, it does not remove peeling skin. The only positive effect of Pure ritual Black peeling is that the mask after peeling works better. That's all about the effect: there is no “smooth - clean - updated" skin.
I note that HR's Black peeling costs 4,000 rubles
and you can easily find a more budgetary analogue that will not only prepare the skin for the mask, but much better remove dead cells and clean pores than Pure ritual Black peeling can do.
+ peeling with papaya pineapple from Elemis for 2500 rubles,
+ enzyme peeling cream from Matis for 2000 rubles
+ smoothing peeling cream from Clarins for 2200 rubles
etc. etc ... Does it make sense to overpay?
I will show you an example.
It is difficult to evaluate cleaning from dead cells without a microscope, so we dodge and see how the peeling will work with a MAC for lip liner.
I naively believe that if peeling cleanses the skin and pores from dirt and dead cells, then at the very least, it can also cope with the decoration ... it's dirt ... right?
HR I will compare with a similar in action mild enzyme peeling from Elemis.
1. We draw on hands to indicate where which product will be (“HR” for Pure ritual Black peeling and “El” for Elemis)
2. Apply and rub to HR Pure ritual Black peeling oil, meanwhile we apply peeling with papaya from Elemis on the other hand and leave it for 10 minutes (I waited 5 minutes)
3. Wash off ...
Do you need more comments on effectiveness?Secondly
, the consequences of using Black peeling from HR can be sad.
If you do not have perfect skin, but there is at least one pimple (or a hint of pimple), then after peeling from HR you will already have 3-4 inflammations. Therefore, I could not “dominate" Black peeling from HR even for the sake of economy. Seven to eight times I tried to give HR Black Peeling a chance and each time the use ended in a flower garden on my face.Conclusions:
Price - 4000 rubles (without discounts)
Duration of use - lies about a year, used 7-8 times
Rating - 2.
2. Valmont Dermo Dermatosic - Treatment solution for sensitive skin
The purpose of this thing - in addition to reducing the volume of the wallet - remains unclear.
It must be applied pointwise to rashes and irritations. Dermatosic promises to eliminate inflammatory skin problems: redness, irritation, peeling, small rashes.
In fact, Valmont Dermatosic struggles with rashes like a schoolboy with Karelin
, and helps with irritations ... at the level of panthenol.Valmont Dermatosic performed well as home care after cleaning with a beautician.
If you apply it on your entire face for 2 nights in a row, the effect of cleaning will last longer and irritation will go away faster.
Cool and useful ... if you close your eyes to the fact that Panthenol with a similar action costs 200 rubles, and Valmont 6000 rubles ... Conclusions:
Price - 8000 rubles (without discounts)
Duration of use - spent intermittently for 8 months intermittently
Score - 3. There is an effect, but not at that price
La Colline Eye performance cellular vital eye mask - Eye contour mask with cell complex
It seems to me that this mask was discontinued ... Hmm ... okay, I’m stump lying ...
According to my observations, really cool eye masks came up with a little.
Many masks clean bags under the eyes well and help with blue, but few fight with wrinkles.
I had high hopes for La Colline and they partially came true. The “Cinderella Effect” La Colline gives: removes swelling, removes blue, smooths wrinkles. But there is enough magic for a day, and then Cinderella is back in the pumpkin.
The course application of La Colline mask did not remove the lines of dehydration under the eyes.
In general, the mask from La Colline is faster and better than eye masks from Sisley or from Clarins, but without miracles ... but for the money we need a miracle ...
The objective disadvantages of the La Colline eye mask are difficult to rinse, and judging by the reviews, it causes allergic reactions for many (I had no allergies, but because of the allergy reviews the mask has a low rating
on foreign sites).
Among cream masks it is difficult to find an analogue of La Colline, but it seems to me that they should be. Patches with a similar effect (and price)
) is in Shiseido.Conclusions:
Price - about 7000 rubles
Period of use - approximately 6 months
Rating - 3.
Points are taken for the ratio of "price-quality" and possible allergies.
