Увлажняющий гель для душа Soap Dodger Body Wash, Evo

In the cabin Authentica Club is a tool called “moisturizing thing in the form of gel”. And I with this definition I totally agree. If you like mountains of foam, the Body Wash is not for you. But it will appeal to whom is not important accompanying special effects, and have (just!) fast skin moisturizing and cleansing quality.

The gel from Australian brand Evo almost no foam (no sulfates or parabens), distributed through the body like milk, but washed well, and leaves a non-sticky moisturizing effect.

This gel has many advantages, foremost of which is composition. It does not contain any sulfates, which is perfect for the winter period – in fact any skin at this time becomes dry. Gel low foam (which is not surprising in the absence of sulphates), but this does not prevent him to clear the skin up.

Shower gel Thé Des Vignes by Caudalie

Гель для душа Thé Des Vignes, Caudalie

The main advantage of the means – fragrance. The gel smells like an expensive selective perfume (a mix of musk, neroli and ginger) and long stays on the skin.

By the way, Cocoyl sodium glutamate is frequently found in the compositions of hypoallergenic means, it does not irritate the mucous membranes and moisturizes.

After using the skin squeaky clean, so you need to apply a good moisturizer. Not to kill the smell, I use body lotion La Roche-Posay.

In the shower, I go on average twice a day (and if the exercise is in the middle of the day, it is still often). Because of this, the skin becomes dry, and helps out in this case just means Librederm. After two weeks of use I noticed that the hands, knees, elbows (all of the most problematic areas) become softer.

Believe that this effect is vitamin F in the composition of the complex of unsaturated fatty acids that smooth the skin, removes inflammation and flaking.

Shower gel “Orange chocolate”, Gloria

Гель для душа «Апельсин в шоколаде», Gloria

The gel is convenient and small package, easy to take with you to the gym or travel. But there is a flip side to the coin: it ends quickly if you use it at home. I love when a lot of bath foam and gel well distributed on the skin and easy to wash off, so spend it economically. And Gloria was no exception. It does not foam very well, so during one trip to the shower, I use really a lot of gel.

The smell of money full-bodied (a mix of orange and chocolate, of course!), but when you put it on your skin, not cloying and tart.

The skin is moderately moist, but without the sense of damage to the cream. Although I use it a couple of weeks, and it seems that the skin is more smooth (maybe it’s the vitamin E and orange oil, which is a part of).

Soothing shower gel Lipikar Gel Lavant, La Roche-Posay

La Roche-Posay say that the tool can be used everywhere from head to toe, adults and children.

Роскошный аргановый гель для душа, Planeta Organica

Wonderful tool! A variety of flower oils including neroli is my favorite. The first shower gel that does not irritate, but on the contrary, it helps with scratches and lacerations – probably due to the juice of the agave. About agave – I once tasted the nectar of this plant, it is very similar to floral honey and the gel is similar to the homemade marmalade with this nectar. The five plus.

Sea buckthorn shower gel Oblepikha Siberica

Облепиховый гель для душа Oblepikha Siberica

In this sea buckthorn shower gel is clearly audible notes of berries – refreshing and tart, with a characteristic sour taste. This is not a trivial “strawberries and cream” or “vanilla almond”, and the present organic oil of Altai sea-buckthorn flavored with Oxalis Yakut, seed oil, Arctic cranberry, wild mint and cedar oil. The set of all these rare and precious plants sounds promising but, actually, in the composition of the gel, their useful properties have hardly any value. All of these ingredients, even if they are super active and healing, just don’t have time to absorb into the skin. You will not lather to stand for hours in the bathroom?

The word “organic” here, too, has very conditional meaning. What’s the difference whether the oil is organic, if the formula of most of the shower gels are almost always present various chemical surfactants? If you reject all these marketing conventions, sea buckthorn shower gel Oblepikha Siberica really high quality and decent product. It is easily whipped into an aromatic foam gently and delicately clears, and after a shower the skin there is no feeling of tightness. And gels the most important thing!
