Dermoshop's Aina cream

Dermoshop is a well known Finnish cosmetics brand - they specialize in stuff for sensitive skin and have also a range of health products like vitamins. Their products do not contain mineral oil and many are without fragrances whatsoever. I ordered a shipload of my favorite soap (they sell the cheapest available tar soap, 2,7 eur a bar). Since it's pretty potent stuff I only use the soap once or twice a week, definitely worth a review of it's own. Their shipping is for free if one orders over 50 eur worth of stuff but they had a nice free shipping offer at the time.

Dermoshop always adds free gifts (which one gets to pick oneself) and samplers - this was one of such. Aina cream is quite a recent addition to their line, it comes in one tone only. Texture is light, scent is nice - a typical bb-cream like product. Has a rather glowy finish like the rest I have tried and this sample is enough for at least 3-4 tries. This one has SPF 25 and the actual container has a pump - overall sounded really nice for I am hunting for something with good sun protection built in for the warmer months. Comes with a good price too - 9,90 eur.

Dermoshop is not a nature cosmetic shop so the ingredients (all listed on the homepage) may seem scary: just remember, getting any UV protection by means of nature only is a Herculean job in itself. If one wants sun protection, one pretty much has to agree to a much longer list of ingredients.

Well - a nice product but my skin really does not go along with the "one color fits all" policy low-end BB-cream producers tend to have, and I have to admit I did not succeed with blending the product properly (used e.l.f.'s small stipple brush). I did not use any moisturizers beforehand either.

WARNING! THIS PRODUCT DOES NOT NEUTRALIZE ANY REDNESS! That's why I end up looking like a total oompa-loompa. Cool toned persons should definitely avoid this particular product. It gets even worse when one happens to have blue eyes: orange skin with blue eyes screams disaster.

I'd say orange (neck and decollete also covered)

I was slow to purchase a BB cream for the exact same reason; pale skin and blue eyes, and I've always, always had trouble finding foundation that didn't turn pink or orange.

I liked the lightest shade of Garnier BB cream, though, and find it covers just enough, though I still need concealer. At about $12 for 2.5 oz, it's one of the better values too. Using it everyday now!

THANK YOU for being a voice of reason about sun protection! I've had lots of people ask me about doing sun protection and I always recommend they buy commercial products and look for allergy tested.

Thanks goodness I tried The adidas adiZero Rose Dominate. we get the goods from the factory directly ,so the price is very cheap , and We only sell authentic shoes. No variants and no fakes. This kind of adiRose 2 , is people's best choice because of it's elegant and durable,classic and healthy.The adidas adiZero Rose Dominate is D-Rose's sig for the second half of next season, their design appearing to be a slimmed-down take on the adiRose 2 , particularly with regard to the upper eyelets. With the same sole as the Crazy Light , use of laser printing and SprintFrame can also be seen on this shoe. Unlike the Rose 2.0, the Dominate lacks the support straps, but the two will have SPRINTWEB and SPRINTFRAME. If you look at the sole, their is a miCoach logo, a nice addition to the line.http://www.cheaplebronxi.com

It is my pleasure coming across your site earlier this week. I came here right now hoping to come across something totally new. I was not disappointed. Your opinions with new solutions on this matter were very helpful and also a terrific assistance to me personally. Many thanks for creating time to jot down these things as well as sharing your ideas.http://nikelebronshoes2013.com/
