For every budget: melting cleansing balm/gel

Cleansing properly your skin every day is probably one of the most important steps in your skincare routine as no expensive treatment will get you full benefits of its ingredients if your skin is dirty and pores blocked. So I make sure I always double cleanse my face in the evening and then use a gentle cleanser in the morning as well to remove all grease, sweat and remnants of products from the evening before.
You don't need to spend lots of money on cleansers but just be sure they're gentle on the skin because we don't want anything too harsh to strip our skin from the moisture and disrupt its protective layer.
Today I want to share with you three great cleansing balms/gels which emulsify when in contact with water and are perfect as a second cleanse in the evening and/or part of your morning skincare routine.
All three of them can be used to remove your makeup but I, personally, prefer an oil or oily balm to break down all my makeup and SPF and then I like to use something lighter that can be rinsed with water for tat fresh skin feeling but without the dryness.

ENDOR Technologies by Elénzia - skincare to keep your skin looking plump and youthful

I've been blogging for over 4 years now and throughout the years I've been lucky to be contacted by many different brands for the opportunity to try their products. As you can imagine this is very exciting at first and while I'm still to this day grateful for every opportunity that comes my way thanks to blogging, at some point it can get a bit overwhelming having lots of new products lying around waiting to be tested, and you know, I have only one face, LOL!
Due to personal reasons I haven't been blogging as often as I used to and I also haven't been accepting every single collaboration I was offered, simply because my skin doesn't like to have a whole new skincare routine every month and I've been actually enjoying more sticking to products that suit my skin perfectly instead of forever trying something new.
The point on me saying all these is that every time now I am lucky to get an opportunity of trying new products I analyse all the aspects before committing to do the work:
Are the products suited to my skin type and needs?
Are the brand/products excite me?
Do the products bring something new to my skincare routine?
So while I was contacted by the lovely people at Elénzia I did my homework before saying 'yes' to the collaboration but first look at their website got me interested in their skincare range and here I am, ready to share my thoughts on the products sent to me, after trialling them daily for over 6 weeks.

Omorovicza Complexion Perfector SPF20 - the Summer base that is good for your skin

What a sunny, hot weather we've been having in UK these past few weeks! And although the heat can be a bit unbearable at times I'm not complaining because it's not often we get to have proper Summer for longer then a week :)
But with temperatures reaching 30ºC wearing full face of makeup can be a bit tricky as most of it will slide off the face within few hours and on top of that the feeling of having heavy makeup is actually really unpleasant. And while ideally we would let our skin just breathe and go makeup free not everyone feels confident to do so or simply our daily activities, like work, require some effort so we look well put together. I worked for the last 10 days almost every day and while the Boots store I work at has air con wearing too much makeup wasn't an option for me, yet as a beauty advisor I am expected to look the part. And that's where very lightweight, good for my skin, base products, like the new Omorovicza Complexion Perfector, come in handy.
