Skincare hauling

Since it's been a while of me posting a haul the upcoming hauls are a bit bigger than usual... This one is the pharmacie skin care haul over the last weeks, not too much if I say so myself!
To start I bought 2 new copies of my beloved Louis Widmer Deo spray, not too cheap at 9euros/piece but I'm a fan and they last a long time, do check my review. Plus I got a little freebie Remederm Body milk along with it. Next to it are 2 Bioderma lip balms, 2 for the price of one and since I love lipbalms... go figure! And another bonus was a Nuxe Body Gel, a large freebie from another brand I love! All products were purchased from Newpharma, a Dutch pharmacie website which regularly has nice offers!
And off course a skin care haul isn't complete without me buying a new copy of Bioderma Sensibio - forever my HG. Also a repurchase is the big bottle from La Roche-Posay Toleriane cleanser, great for sensitive skin, also HG material! And lastly, LRP Rosaliac UV Legere cream: a few weeks ago I reviewed the riche version of this cream (really liked it) and now with summer being here I could do with a lighter version, hope this one performs as well!

That's it for today, more hauls coming^^!!

Review Paula's Choice Weigthless body treatment 2% BHA

Today let's talk body talk... Sadly enough I have to admit that I often neglect it. After taking a bath I have to force myself to use some moisturizer, lazy - yes, I confess! But it is important and I do my best to maintain it a bit or so I try to tell myself^^.
Summer is here, so tanned soft legs are a must, accompanied by skirts & dresses... But I often end up with ingrown hairs, very annoying and those little bumps aren't appealing... This BHA from Paula's Choice promises to get rid of them?
This innovative body lotion combines the exfoliating and anti-acne power of salicylic acid with ingredients that work to ease minor dryness while supplying skin with potent antioxidants. You'll see immediate and ongoing improvements in skin texture and tone plus a reduction of blemishes and unsightly red bumps. Please see below for references to documented research about the claims made for the ingredients in this body treatment.

  • Exfoliates skin with 2% salicylic acid formulated within an effective pH range (3.2–3.6)
  • Silky texture spreads easily and absorbs quickly
  • Weightless matte finish is ideal for breakout-prone body skin
  • Significantly reduces inflammation and soothes reddened skin
  • Excellent for treating raised red bumps (keratosis pilaris)
  • 100% fragrance- and colorant-free
  • Please note: When using a BHA product make sure you use a sunscreen during the day

  • You get a big tube of 210ml for around 25euros, only available in her webshop. Packaging is easy & simple, with a little squeeze you can control the amount of product easily. The product is white, gel-like and has a light scent - bit medical - but not really disturbing. It spreads easily and doesn't irritate my skin in any way... Now onto the big question... does it help? Yes, it does! In the beginning I used it a few days in a row where I now use it once in a while. However, a little point of negative... with repeated use I noticed my skin becoming drier, so use of another moisturizer inbetween is necessary.
    The goods: tube packaging, fulfills claims (!), non-irritating, spreads easily

    The bads: bit medical scented, can dry out skin with repeated use, only available through webshop, not cheap at 20-30euros
    Altogether a good product that does what it promises... So if you sometimes suffer from little bumps, store this in your bathroom - you won't be disappointed!
