Panasonic Cleansing Brush EH-XC10

I'd like to show you this amazing facial cleansing brush I've been using for the last days. This is my first electric brush and I'm really happy about it because I've been actually wishing to have one for months, but never decided to buy any. 

This is the Panasonic EH-XC10 and it's a 3-in-1 cleansing brush because you can use it in 3 different ways: a soft brush for a gentle cleanse, a smaller silicone brush for the pores and a warming plate for makeup removal.

On the picture above you can see the brush more in detail and the accessories. 

The right end of the main body is the warming makeup removal plate that helps loosen and remove makeup easily. You can choose between 43 degrees or 48 and it starts to warm up, then apply your usual makeup remover on the face or on the plate and begin moving it around your face for about 3 minutes (it stops automatically after that time). That's all, very simple and easy to use. 

The bigger brush you see on the picture is the soft one to use daily. Also very simple to use, add foaming cleanser and water to the brush, press the switch (normal or soft), wait a couple of minutes for the foam to appear and then move the brush around your face. It's recommended to clean your face in three different sections for about 20 seconds each (the brush will make a pause every 20 seconds and then stop after 1 minute). Finally you just have to rinse your skin with water and you're done! 

The smaller brush is a pore-targeting silicone brush. This one is recommended to be used max. twice a week right after the soft brush, while you still have foam on your face and only on some areas such as the nose and chin.

And the accessory you see between the brushes is a measuring cap to add water (appox. 4ml is all you need).

On the last picture I wanted to show you the rear part of the brush, that opened compartment is where you add the cleanser (the water must be poured into the center of the soft brush). After every use you must rinse that compartment with water, very easy.
You can also see the socket cover there too.

What I like about this brush is that it's very easy to use, it makes much foam with only a small amount of cleanser and water, it's also fast (you are ready in one minute), it actually cleanses better than handwashing and you can use it in three different ways and also while taking a shower. Oh and I find the stand very nice and practical to store the main body and the accessories.

Nevertheless there are a couple of negative points about it. One of them is the fact that you cannot clean your eyes, neither with the soft brush nor with the warming plate, so you have to do that some other way... Another thing is that you have to be careful with your skin, you shouldn't use the brush more than once a day or apply it for a long period on the same area, otherwise you can irritate your skin (so I guess it's not so gentle to the skin). 

But all in all I really like this Panasonic facial cleansing brush and I'm sure it will become an important part of my daily skincare routine.

Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules

I'm trying at the moment the Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules, do you already know them? It's a daily youth facial serum that provides triple anti-aging power for visibly firmer, smoother and healthy-looking skin.

The highlight about these capsules is the Ceramide Technology, which has the power to help replenish and restore the ceramides your skin loses with age. It strengthens the skin's moisture barrier layer with what it needs for a youthful-looking appearance.

The serum comes inside capsules, in my case I have the 60-capsule package. They deliver a single, concentrated dose of youth-restoring ceramides, are biodegradable and preservative and fragrance free. You just have to twist the tab around and squeeze. I guess each capsule is made for one use, but I think they contain too much serum and I use each one for two days, which I find great because the product is not the cheapest (about 50€).

I've been using the serum for about two weeks now and I like it. It's a bit oily, but it actually gets absorbed very easily after a couple of minutes and it leaves my skin with a nice moisturized feeling. But I have to be very careful not to apply the serum too close to my eyes because it stings! Something I also like about these capsules are the main ingredients, some of the key ingredients are enhanced ceramide lipid complex, botanical complex technology, tsubaki oil, fatty acids, cholesterol, phytosphingosine, sea fennel extract and retinyl palmitate. I'm not going to describe each of them but they are great by increasing the moisturization within the surface of the skin and minimizing the appearance of aging signs.

I would truly recommend this serum, although I'm not sure how it works on oily skin, mine is dry and this is perfect for me. It leaves my skin more radiant, softer and with a much better appearance.

I also have two samples of the eye serum, which is basically the same but for the eyes. It's supposed to reduce crow's feet, fine lines and wrinkles, as well as the puffiness, and to improve the firmness, elasticity and skin texture. I don't have an opinion about the eye serum yet because I haven't tried it. Anyway with only two samples I'm not sure if I will be able to say much, but if it's as good as the facial serum then it's worth it!

Salthouse Totes Meer Therapie & Luxus

Ahora con el invierno, la nieve, el viento frío en la calle y las calefacciones en el interior, mi piel seca y más bien sensible sufre bastante, por eso es ahora en esta estación cuando busco productos más hidratantes y cuidadosos con mi piel, y este año he encontrado unos que no es que me estén gustando, sino encantando!!! Salthouse Totes Meer Therapie y Luxus.

La base de estos 4 productos es su contenido de sales minerales naturales procedentes del Mar Muerto (Totes Meer), fuente de valiosos agentes activos naturales que ayudan a equilibrar la piel, regenerándola, hidratándola y mejorando su aspecto, además de calmar las pieles secas, sensibles o con problemas.

De la gama Luxus de Salthouse tengo estas dos mascarillas: la Lifting y la Repair.
La mascarilla premium Lifting, además de contener minerales del Mar Muerto, lleva extracto de iris y ácido hialurónico, todo ello para mantener la hidratación de la piel pero también para reafirmarla y afinar las arruguitas, dejando una tez suave y con buen aspecto. Viene en pack de dos x5ml y es de consistencia gel-crema.
La mascarilla de Salthouse Repair por su parte también se compone de un concetrado de minerales del Mar Muerto, pero en este caso combinado con amino-ácidos esenciales y ácidos grasos insaturados que ayudan a aumentar la regeneración natural de las células, para una tez nutrida, suave y más relajada. También viene en pack de dos x5ml y es de textura sedosa.
En realidad aún no he usado ninguna de las dos versiones, pero si son tan buenas como los siguientes productos, os aseguro que son entonces geniales, y con lo que me gustan a mí las mascarillas en esta época me vienen muy bien y me van a encantar seguro, tienen muy buena pinta!

Otra de las cosas que tengo de Salthouse Totes Meer es la emulsión limpiadora que pertenece a la gama Therapie. Es un bote de 200ml que se puede usar para limpiar la cara pero también incluso el cuerpo. No lleva perfumes, ni siliconas, ni parabenes o parafina y, aunque es para piel seca y sensible, también es apta para gente con dermatitis o psoriasis.
Combina minerales del Mar Muerto con sustancias activas hidratantes para una limpieza suave. Contiene extracto de pepino para refrescar y calmar la piel sensible, y también ácidos grasos y de onagra para equilibrar la piel seca aportándole hidratación.
La textura es como la de una leche limpiadora, pero en realidad hay que mojarla un poquito con agua y después aclarar la piel. Sinceramente me encanta, es muy suave y deja mi piel genial, nada tirante o reseca, lo único es que su olor (sin perfumes) no es especialmente agradable y el bote en sí me parece un poco soso/simple, pero la verdad es que es lo de menos.

Y por último tengo la crema hidratante también de la gama Therapie de Salthouse Totes Meer.
Al igual que la emulsión, no contiene perfumes, ni siliconas o parafina y es apta para pieles con dermatitis o psoriasis. También es rica en sales minerales naturales del Mar Muerto como los demás productos, pero en este caso esta crema 24h añade ácido hialurónico para mantener la hidratación de la piel, además de panthenol y vitamina E que regeneran la piel a la vez que refuerzan la barrera natural protectora e impulsan la renovación celular. Además contiene "Defensil" para calmar la piel seca e irritada a causa de picores y rojeces, dejándola relajada, suave y con buen aspecto.
Esta crema me encanta, en mi piel funciona genial, es bastante consistente pero muy ligera al aplicarla, mi piel la absorbe muy muy bien y queda super suave, hidratada y muy bien cuidada, yo estoy encantadísma a pesar de que su olor (que tampoco es mucho) no sea muy bueno. Lo que no me gusta mucho es el bote, es de plástico muy sencillo y a veces me cuesta cerrarlo, pero al igual que la emulsión, es lo de menos ya que su contenido es lo importante.

Como veis estoy muy contenta con estos productos de Salthouse (marca alemana), para mi piel y para ahora el invierno son perfectos, además no son nada caros: la crema son unos 7€, las mascarillas 1€ y la emulsión limpiadora unos 5€, y se pueden encontrar en Rossmann.
