Empties #2 – Body

Like I said HERE, here is another empties post, this time I’ll be talking about the body products I’ve used up the last couple of months.
Bioderma Crealine DS+
I bought this thinking it was a face cleansing gel for dry and sensitive skin and couldn’t be more pissed when this arrived and I realized it was indeed a shower gel and a rather expensive one. Its formulated for very dry and very sensitive skin but it’s packed full of sulfates so I don’t see how it can work. Honestly I don’t see any difference between this and any drugstore shower gel.
I got this for £2 after Raquel raved about it and I don’t know if my skin was particularly dry when I used this but I don’t think its very good. I felt it just sits on the skin and I could still feel it upon taking a shower the next morning.
I used this for a couple of weeks and then put it to the side because I didn’t really feel it gave any hydration to my skin. When I decided I had to hit pan on it, it suddenly felt different. Maybe my skin wasn’t as dry but I really enjoyed using it and think its a very nice moisturizer. Maybe I’ll give it another try when I use up all my 15 body lotions.
I work around 60 hours a week, standing in heels and I must say that my pretty little feet have seen better days. No matter how much scrubbing I do or how much I try to moisturize them they always look rough and dry but despite all this I think that this Foot Rescue is a quite good option and it does help to maintain them hydrated for longer than a couple of hours. Will definitely be repurchasing this.
From all this hours standing and no time or patience to work out I gained some weight and some cellulite. I’m not hoping to wake thinner one day due to a magic cream but it sure doesn’t hurt to use them. My cellulite is not visible but it hurts as hell and I find this oil to really help to reduce the bumps underneath my skin and with it sure does help to ease the pain I have on my legs. I’m definitely going to repurchase this as soon as I use up another similar product that its not as efficient.
This foot cream is not as good as the one mentioned above but it does leave the feet looking good. I feel that instead of moisturizing it just coats the feet with something non-greasy that leaves them looking nice and moisturized but as soon as you wash them they’re back to looking dry and rough. Its a good quick fix to use in the summer with sandals.
Have you tried any of these products? Let me know what products you’ve recently hit pan on.

    Por acaso tenho esse hidratante da Vaseline e gosto imenso, infelizmente sou demasiado preguiçosa para fazer um ritual de colocação de cremes, mas uma coisa é certa, para mim ele pertence ao meu top 🙂
