Balea Gentle Peeling Gel – Review, Swatch & Photos

Hello beauties!

I’ve been using Balea Gentle Peeling Gel for a while now and since I like this product so much I wanted to share with you my full review. I bought this product from my local DM drugstore because it’s a gentle peeling gel suitable for combination to oily skin types like mine. The gel comes in a blue tube, transparent on the sides so you can get a glimpse of how much product is left inside.

Balea Pearl Lip Balm – Review, Swatches & Photos

Hello beauties!

Earlier this month I purchase a few Balea products from my favorite Dm drugstore and one of them was Balea Pearl Lip Balm. Since lately there were high temperatures here I felt that my lips needed extra care so I decided to buy a simply lip balm with pearl effects.

Balea Pearl Lip Balm ( € 1.00/ 4.40 Lei for 4.8 gr) is a sheer very light pink color with white pearl finish. It has a very light and creamy texture that feels soft on the lips. It glides gently on the lips, protecting them against cold air and moisturizing them. It has a very discreet scent and doesn’t contain mineral oils or wax. Once I applied the Pearly Lip Balm I notice it tends to settle a bit into lip lines but it does feel lightweight, keeping lips soft and moisturized for hours. The color has a discreet pearl sheen and looks natural on my lips with a hint towards a white pearl. I feel that this color will complement only those with fair, light and medium skin tones as it might look to white on dark and olive skin tones. Continue Reading

Balea Gentle Cleansing Milk – Review, Photos & Swatch

Hello pretties!

I’ve purchased Balea Gentle Cleansing Milk about a month ago from Dm drugstore and I’ve used it enough to review it today and tell you about my experience with this product. It’s a product that can be used on every skin type and will help you remove your makeup, impurities or dust. The Gentle Cleansing Milk comes in a white opaque bottle which hides the exact amount of the product left inside. It’s very easy to use by removing the cap and gently pressing the bottle for the milk to come out.

Recently Bought Beauty Products – Intragen, Balea & Aura – Preview

Hello lovelies!

Today I went shopping and I want to share with you my newest beauty products. I’m happy to have bought another Intragen Anti Hair Loss Treatment Concentrate (review & photos) since I just finished my previous set of 12 vials about 2 weeks ago and I didn’t want to stop the treatment. I’ve discovered Intragen back in 2009 when I didn’t know what other anti hair loss products I should try to help my hair from falling. I’m honestly crediting Intragen as the most efficient anti hair loss treatment I’ve ever used. Since I first purchased this treatment 3 years ago I’ve been using it once a year, usually from autumn until spring ( the 42 vials set will last you a few months) and it has done wonders even to my thin natural blonde hair.

The Intragen treatment  can also be paired with Intragen Anti Hair Loss Shampoo (1250 ml for 117.00 Lei) which comes in a huge bottle of 1250 ml and I’ve used it 2-3 times a week for about 11 months. It’s a professional shampoo and it really helps thicken your hair and fights hair loss problems with success.

Apart from Intragen treatment I’ve bought a few things from my favorite drugstore, Dm. Balea is my favorite drugstore brand from Dm and I’ve been using their conditioner and shower gels for years. Continue Reading

Hair Care Products I’m Curently Using – Quick Review

Hello sweeties!

If last month I posted a quick review of Face Care Products I’m currently using I though I would show you my hair care products. Perhaps you will say there are way to much products but some of them I just finished using last week/ month and I want to mention them because they are great products, others I use from time to time because I’ve changed my hair care routine and some of them I’m using a few times a week.

What you should now about my hair

I need to mention this because even though some of these products did wonders for my hair, they might not work for you. I’m a natural blonde and although it might seem strange for some of you, I’m still wearing my natural color and I never (really, never ever) dyed my hair. I admit sometimes I wanted to try different colors but I gave up knowing that I will have to dye my hair all the time (I really hate when I see roots of different color on other girls) and also because all the stylist I went to recommended me to keep my natural color. Being a natural blonde my hair is very very thin and no hairstyle will resist more than few hours. Even when I go to a hair salon for a coiffure after a few hours (no matter how much hair spray or other fixing products I have on my hair) the result is still the same. My hair will return to its natural state…straight, soft, puffy and just a little bit (only on the left side) wavy. 🙂

For years I’ve been using the flat iron, sometimes even 2 – 3 times a week and last year in November I reached a point where I had to stop destroying my hair. I had very serious hair loss problems, my hair was getting thinner and thinner to a point where it was almost transparent at the ends,  and using some of these products regularly was the reason why I wasn’t bald already. 🙂 But even the best products can’t keep up with the flat iron being used so often. Since November 2011 until now I’ve used it only 2 times and my hair is again healthy, has a vivid color, is thicker and most important it doesn’t fall anymore. 🙂

As you can see I like to use a variety of products from high-end brands to drugstore products. If you are interested in any of these products please write me in the comments  bellow and I can make a full review about the product of your choice. Continue Reading

Balea Sensitive Deo Spray & PH Skin Neutral Deo Spray – Review & Photos

Hello sweeties!

I hope you are enjoying the last day of weekend! I have been meaning to review these products for such a long time and finally I found the right moment to do it. 🙂

I don’t know if you are familiar with Balea products. They are German products as far as I know, they are very cheap and many of them have a great quality. I usually don’t use Deo spray, I’m more comfortable with a Deo stick but a few months ago when I was shopping in Dm drugstore I bought Balea PH Skin Neutral Deo Spray from curiosity.

Availability & Price

Available at every Dm drugstore in Europe (even in Romania)

Balea Sensitive Deo Spray (75 ml)  – 10.00 Lei (Romania) and around 2.50 Eur

Balea PH Skin Neutral Deo Spray (75 ml)  – 10.00 Lei / 2.50 Eur

Face Care Products I’m Currently Using in Spring 2012 – Quick Review

Hello lovelies!

I’ve been thinking about posting this article for a long time now. I’ve been away from Chicprofile for the whole 2011 year and during this time I used a lot of face care products from different brands. Probably I will make another post with the face care products I used in the last 6 months but for now I just want to show you which are the ones I’m currently using.

Some of you know that I prefer high end brands when it comes to take care of my complexion and if you have been reading Chicprofile in the past you probably noticed that La Mer and La Prairie are my favorite cosmetic brands. I’m also loving Clinique, Lancaster, Shu Uemura and I don’t say no to drugstore brands, because in my opinion the best products for my skin doesn’t have to be the most pricy.

I would love to know what products are your currently using, especially if you have oily to combination and sensitive skin like me. I really like to hear what are your favorite face care products and how important is face care routine for you. Do you take more care of your skin rather then cover it with makeup all the time? Please share your thoughts with the rest of us.

For me, face care routine is very important and it has been very important for the last 12 years. I don’t wear makeup everyday, I give my skin time to breathe and I never go to sleep without cleansing my skin (even though I didn’t wear makeup that day) and applying my face and eye cream.

Here are the products I’m  using everyday  (some more than others) so I will give you my quick opinion about each and every one of them. If you want me to review any of these products separately please just let me know.

I have combination skin (oily in the T-zone) and also my complexion is very sensitive. The advantage of having combination or oily skin is that once you get older your wrinkles won’t be so visible like if you had dry skin. If when I was a teenager I had to fight all those pimples, breakouts and nasty red spots because of the oiliness of my skin, now at my age I can enjoy that my complexion is aging slower than the ones having dry skin.
