It’s been a while since I posted an actual skincare post, you may remember my post on the best natural looking base from the same brand – Mádara Organic Skincare. I already stated this fact, this is by far the best organic skincare brand that I’ve discovered thanks to my Nuoobox monthly subscription.
After trying out several products of the brand, I decided to purchase some actual size skincare products for me to try. Having a combination skin I opted for Deep Moisture Gel and Balancing toner.
Deep Moisture Gel (day) is good for oily/combination skin type. I chose this kind of moisturizer as I was curious about the formula. I’ve never tried gel moisturizers before, I was used to creams, oils and balms even. This product is sold at €29.95/30ml which I think is pretty justified. Personally, I didn’t like this formula, it felt sticky as it dries on the skin and most of all it wasn’t even hydrating my skin. There’s some positive aspects to it though – the scent and the refreshing feel of the product when appplied. Of course, I wasn’t going to throw away a freshly purchased product just because I didn’t like it (oh wait that already happened…), when using this product, I made sure to apply facial oil beforehand, this gives my skin the hydration it needs then facilitates the application of the moisturizing gel. Problem solved!
The Balancing Toner is well a toner, I only use this at night. My skin looks hydrated each time I wake up because of this base, it makes it so that my oils and creams work their wonders better. The bottle costs €15/200ml which I think is a good price. I’ve ordered this last July and I still haven’t finished the bottle.
Would I recommend these products? Probably the toner yes, but not the gel moisturizer, at least not the formula, you can try buying the one in fluid or cream, they surely work better.
