3W CLINIC Intensive UV Sunblock Cream SPF 50+/PA+++

Well, it's good I didn't rest on my laurels in search of the perfect high protection SPF product, the previous post explains why ... There is always something that could be more perfect than it already is;) I have another product in store, maybe even a little better than Rohto Hada-Labo. Although summer is long behind us, protection against UVA / UVB rays is still my priority. I'm currently using Korean 3W CLINIC Intensive UV Sunblock Cream SPF 50 + / PA +++ and I admit that it's good.

Rohto Hada-Labo UV Creamy Gel SPF 50/PA ++++

As a devoted supporter of AHA peels I obey religiously protection against UVA / UVB rays, at least for some time now. I don't think I'm alone in finding it quite hard to get a really good UV face sunscreen, which wouldn't make us looking like ghosts and as shiny as Christmas tree lights. So far, my search for the ideal one is still ongoing, although I have some temporary favourite ones. A good sunscreen is a really problematic thing... Photostable, not too heavy (well, after all makeup must somehow stay put), good texture, resistant to moisture and so on. I can continue listing my expectations but that's not the point as each of us has some requirements about the above. It's well known that the sunscreens are divided into chemical and physical ones - I need to point out that I'm not a fan of the chemical ones, as they can give me a nasty irritation around my eyes. Chemical sunscreens are designed to absorb UV radiation, while physical to reflect or scatter, so that nothing uncool manages to penetrate our skin and cause damage. My perfect sunblock would be a physical one then but there's a big problem - white face. Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide used in such products are photostable (hurray), but they are not durable and must be used in combination with other substances, for example chemical ingredients or silica. The texture of physical sunblocks is often too thick and the undesired effect of a white face as a bonus. Everyone picks a anti-UV product suiting their needs and skin type, there is something seeming perfect for everyone. I personally focus on the high SPF protection, light texture and physical filters on the ingredients list. Let's get to the details. The temporary favourite No. 1.

Lefrosch Pilarix Krem Mocznikowy

Lefrosch Pilarix Urea Cream is my number one when it comes to care for very dry skin. I always have it in store. I found it quite a few years ago by pure chance, on one of the forums for people struggling with psoriasis and I really hope that it will never stop being produced. The description on the packaging says about roughness elimination, accelerating the regeneration of the skin and an intense moisturization. All above is very true!

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Anti-Aging Smoothing Lotion

For a moment, I'll stay in the AHAs subject, which is definitely my number one skin care staple. While for my face I only use makeshift potions, then for the body sometimes I look for ready products. There's one simple reason, often making bigger amount of lotion doesn't pay off, unless your skin has special needs. It happened a couple of times that I made my own body lotion (containing AHAs, of course!), But shortly after that I found equally well-functioning drugstore products, so temporarily I gave up on doing it in favour of reading INCI lists. Of course, from time to time I do whole body acid peels, but the current autumn / winter time I'm devoting to the use of a lotion I want to write about today.

Trio idealne - kwas glikolowy, hialuronowy i olej jojoba

Autumn is the perfect season for the AHA acids use. My adventure with them began around seven years ago and there's no end to it in sight. I love AHA toners and peels boundlessly but don't want to write only about that. Acids became my starting point for exploration of interesting, good, simple and mostly inexpensive cosmetics that would meet the needs of my skin. That's it. It started with sunburn patches, then melasma came along - hence the idea of ​​exfoliation.
