Biofficina Toscana Rebalancing Facial Serum

Durante la mia disperata ricerca di una crema viso efficace, ho acquistato un siero di cui non ero affatto convinta, visto che ne ho già altri piuttosto buoni, ma che volevo provare per curiosità. Alla fine dopo mesi di indecisione l'ho preso, e devo dire che mi sono mangiata le mani...

Domus Olea Toscana Face Cream Rassoda Lift

I have been in a face cream crisis for a few months now. Alas, I have run out of Fitocose’s excellent cream, which is unbeatable value for money, and for some time now, I have been looking for local alternatives without success. The last one I tried was from Neal’s Yard Remedies, the Frankincense Intense™ Cream, which is less hard to spread than many others from Neal’s Yard but is not moisturising enough,...

Biofficina Toscana Two-phase Toner Cream

Yes, I confess: the land of Albion is not very generous when it comes to cosmetics with good ingredients (except for Neal’s Yard Remedies), and so I am continuing to use the Italian ones, mainly those of Biofficina Toscana (shampoo, conditioner and shower gel), and I cannot thank Ecco Verde enough for this (the parcels arrive regularly here too).
The only problem remains the face creams,...

#350 - Avene XeraCalm A.D Liporesthesive balm

In general, I wouldn’t say I like Avene products much more because the ingredients usually, thermal water aside, are not very good. Still, in this case, I took this balm because I had a robust allergy problem, and I already know because it had also happened to me some time ago that a cortisone cream is not enough because my skin is dehydrated....

#320 - Fitocose Blueberry cream

Today is the first day of autumn; this morning, the sky was as clear as one rarely sees in Milan, and it was chilly. However, the temperature had already dropped for a few days, at least in the evening.
So I abandoned the light summer creams in favour of a fuller cream since my skin showed evident dryness.
My usual one was just fine,...

#277 - The seventh drawer

Again in the series: things you wouldn’t normally do except on holiday when you have time, I’ve been sorting out make-up and cosmetics for two days now. I’ve already reviewed the nail polishes, washed the brushes, and sorted out everything I had taken in the past few days in a new drawer, the seventh, so I have what I want to test....

#275 - Biofficina Toscana lip scrub and lip cream agrumati

Let’s face it: the usual wax-based lip balms got old. They get old because they leave an annoying coating on the lips and because it is impossible to use them under lipstick, and waiting half an hour at least before putting on lipstick if you have dry lips is not very practical. I had also tried other non-waxed lip balms,...

#273 - Biofficina Toscana Deo roll-on

I have been using the same cream deodorant for sensitive skin for almost twenty years, prescribed by the allergist who first examined me when I realised I had severe allergic problems.
Until recently, I had no problem with that deodorant, and then I started to smell more, and it started to bother me.
I don’t think it’s strange;...
