Rudolph Care: Acai Body Lotion

 

Pros:

Organic and free from harmful ingredients. Softens and hydrates skin.

Cons:

Glass bottle with pump: Not handy to travel with.

More:

I will start out by repeating what I wrote in an earlier review on a Rudolph Care product:

I have said it before, and I will say it again: I’m a fan of Rudolph Care. I love that they make products without harmful ingredients or chemicals. I think this is something that the entire beauty industry should focus a lot more on: We apply these products to our biggest absorbing organ (our skin) several times a day. I.e. when using products with perfume, chemicals and what-have-you, we feed our body with toxics, and the consequences is starting to show around the world. Okay, enough of me preaching (I just wish there were more ‘healthy’ products out there).

The Acai Body Lotion is a really nice lotion with a light smell. The bottle has a pump function that easily provides me with the lotion I need. The lotion is easy to apply to skin as it is not too thick. The skin is left soft and hydrated without feeling greasy. The Acai berry should help against signs of ageing.

Rudolph Care claims that the lotion can be used for sensitive, irritated and dry skin. Even for skin with a rash. This is also my experience. Here’s an example: My boyfriend and his sister has a tendency to get red spots/rash on their upper arms (I think they’re called something special, but I don’t remember the word). The Rudolph Care Acai Body Lotion is the only lotion that makes that rash go away.

I like to have one lotion that I just know works and that is good for my skin and my health. This one is my favourite when it comes to that, and you can actually use it for your hair if it’s a bit dry. Just apply a little to the ends…

Rudolph Care: Acai Lip Balm

product_v1_x1

Pros:

Tastes good, ‘healthy’, leaves my lips soft and hydrated without being too sticky. Also good for other dry areas

Cons:

You have to apply it with your finger, which means that you stick your (dirty?) fingers into the balm whenever you want to apply it

The Lip Balm comes in a little glass container and looks really cute. You have to stick your finger in the container and apply the balm with your finger, which I’m not a huge fan of, as it’s inevitable to drag some bacteria into my lovely lip balm.

The balm smells great (the Rudolph smell) and it even tastes all right if you accidentally eat it, which is hard to avoid, when applied to lips several times a day. I keep the lip balm in my coat pocket or purse, to have it with me at all times. It works wonders on cracked winter lips, and during the summer time, it’s good for sunburned skin or lips.

I also use the lip balm to give my lips a little “shine” when I go out.

Even though I feel a here-and-now hydration and improvement of my lips’ condition, the balm does not hydrate my lips in-depth, further, this is an expensive product (around €26 for 15ml), but it lasts long.

Review of Avéne Soothing Hydrating Serum

 

Pros:

Bottle with pump. Easy to apply. Feels good for my skin.

Cons:

Expensive. Not that soothing.

More:

This Eau Thermale Avène serum is a lightweight gel moisturiser for sensitive skin. The Thermal Water is said to be soothing and good for irritated and/or acne prone skin. I still need to see the scientific evidence for these claims (in beauty products). Paula’s Choice states that “There is inadequate research demonstrating that Avene’s thermal spring water is soothing for skin.” But there’s no source on the statement.

My skin is sensitive and has a tendency to get dehydrated, while still being acne prone. I have used the serum every day and night for almost a month (There’s 25% left of the 30ml bottle). I use approximately two “pumps” per time. The serum is easy to apply and is ok absorbed.

I tried to apply the serum and then a day cream, but that gets too much (too greasy/shiny). The serum alone is OK. My skin feels fine, but I do feel that my skin could need more hydration.

I’m not sure I see/feel a noticeable difference. For a product at this price, I would expect more hydration and better results.

I didn’t experience any breakouts or irritations from the serum, which is a plus.

By the way, Avène claims to be cruelty free (not tested on animals), however, they still sell in China, which requires that their products are tested on animals (More here).
