Mixa Intensive Care Dry Skin body balm |Review

Hello people, I’m here with a review this time :) It’s a good one, so keep reading ;)

About 2 months ago I was complaining to my husband how dry my skin was and the next day he came back with this cream. Being a cheap ass I always just choose the cheapest option 😂 Don’t judge me, I can hear you! But my husband is not and he always chooses very carefully the products he buys for me and they always end up being my favorite! To be clear this body balm is not expensive at all, but I just wouldn’t have even looked at it.

• Repairing Surgas
• Sensitive skin
• Extra dryness
• 10% moisturizing glycerine
• Oat milk
• Lasting repair & relief
• Anti-dryness shield
• Anti-flaking
• Anti-irritation
• Hypoallergenic
• Paraben free
• Alcohol freeù

Let me get the “bad” off my chest, so I can talk about the good. I’m not sure how green and chemical free this product is, but I’m not gonna do a search on all the ingredients. It would take me forever with my phone! However I noticed “cetyl alcohol” in the ingredient list and went to read about it since it says “alcohol free” on the packaging. I discovered that it’s not actually alcohol, you can read about it on this page. But I was suprised to read, that many dermatologists don’t recommend it to sensitive skin and it may cause irritation! Yet it says “sensitive skin”, “anti-irritation” and “hypoallergenic” on the packaging! Not very happy about this, another proof that you can’t trust the companies and what you read on packaging – do your own research!

Fortunately, it didn’t create any irritation to anyone in our family.
• It’s very thick and very veeeery moisturizing. I use it about twice in a month, it moisturizes so deeply you don’t even need to use it more often! It would work wonders on someone with very dry skin!
• My younger son suffers from atopic dermatitis and this lotion helped to repair his skin very quickly. Before I used the Mustela and Avenè emollient creams and they weren’t half as efficient as this one!
• My older son has a sun allergy and the rash is very itchy, which results him scatching and having scratches. This cream worked amazing also on him and repaired his damaged skin after only one application, it also reduced the rash and made the skin smooth again.

As you can see, Mixa body balm has been very useful to us and I can’t but to recommend it to you. Especially if you or someone in your family has this kind of skin problems. Not sure in which countries it is available though. It is owned by L’Oreal so it shouldn’t be too hard to find :)

I hope this was helpful,
Talk to you soon 💕

Yayyy shopping! Haul & First Impressions

Hello sweethearts! As you know I still blog from my phone, it’s a pain in the ass to type on a phone plus the wordpress app really puts in the effort to f@#% things up with photos, but I managed to write a very long and detailed post and get the photos right after an agonising hour, I press publish and guess what….it published an EMPTY post! Well f@#% me! Sorry for the swearing, but I’m so pissed right now! I was so inspired and the words came easy for me and now I need to start again. I really wanna cry or break something!!!!

Ok, let me take a deep breathe and try to do as good job as the first time :)

First I went to lilly, a drugstore chain from Serbia. It was my first time there, it was nice to have different brands from the usual dm ones. My husband went to get a haircut with my older son Jürgen (apparently he danced the whole time hubs got his hair cut lol). I had time to kill and my little helper, Joonas with me. He behaved very well and wanted to now all the functions and purposes of different products :D

I would’ve preferred the lime & grapefruit one, but Joonas adores honey so how could I not please him :)

Bilka homeopathy natural whitening toothpaste
⚪paraben free
⚪mint free
⚪fluoride free
⚪sugar free
It is free of lot of crap, but there’s still other bad-for-you ingredients. It’s the best I could do though, it’s hard to find bio/all natural products, that “trend” hasn’t arrived here in bulgaria yet. A lot of brands that claim to be natural on the packaging are far from it. If I’m not mistaking, Bilka is a bulgarian brand. They are one of those brands that are less natural then they say, but still less harmful than a lot of others.

I really love this toothpaste! Other toothpastes of this kind have tasted awful, left residue on my teeth and made my teeth very sensitive & hurt. This one tastes amazing, it doesn’t leave a heavy toothpaste taste in your mouth, cleans my teeth perfectly and doesn’t make them hurt or sensitive at all.

I have mentioned, that, Jürgen suffers from sun allergy since last year and I needed a good sunscreen for him. I went to read online to get more info and it’s important to have UVA & UVB both. The last one didn’t have them both, so I’m really hoping this will help him to stay outside longer without getting the rash and scrathing himself like crazy!

For the past 10 months or so I’ve been having problems with dandruff and itchy scalp. I know it’s pretty common, but I still feel a little embarrassed admitting I have this problem. I’ve been trying to figure out the origins – do I have a zinc deficiency, do I have a really dry scalp, are my shampoos too agressive? The itchyness really gets to me, it’s so annoying and sometimes I get crusts on my head because of it. Yeah, gross I know. Sorry bout that. Hopefully I’ll figure it out soon. If you have any advice to give e, I’ll happily listen!

I used it this morning and so far so good. Cleaned my hair nicely and has a subtle delicate fragrance. I’ll need to wait and see how I like it.

I don’t know about you, but I prefer to get my shampoo and conditioner from different lines. This way I get the best of both worlds ;) Do you go with one line to get max results or do like a double function like I do?

It left my skin moisturized, which is probably a good thing for most, but I don’t like it. I want my face to feel superclean and “stretched” afer a scrub. The smell is great and it’s also very lightweight and delicate, which makes it good for an everyday use.

I didn’t like it too much on my face, but I loved it on my chest area. It immediately got rid of all the tiny bumps and spots and left my skin soft and smooth. I might use this as a body scrub. Or a boob scrub ahahhaha
