Like the Clean Line, a series of cosmetics under the brand of 100 beauty recipes is released again by Concern Kalina Open Joint-Stock Company. Despite the fact that the manufacturer is the same, I have different attitudes towards these brands.
In this topic, I want to share with the readers of Alimero my feelings and impressions of using three brand products Hundred beauty recipes, which I now use:
– Night cream for the face
– Cream for hands and nails
– Lip balm
Night cream for sensitive skin Hundred recipes of beauty
This cream is marked as hypoallergenic, designed for sensitive skin of all ages and is called Gentle Cream and Olive Oil. A jar of 50 ml costs about 50 rubles.
I will not restrain myself from comparing in some respects with the Pure Line, since in addition to one manufacturer, these tools are in the same price category.
In principle, the design of the Pure Line does not cause me to reject, then the brand has a hundred of beauty recipes more like it. My eye is pleased with the combination of white with orange and another traditional color for this cosmetics – something between a melted milk and a peach, as it seems to me.
Immediately make a reservation that among my cosmetics, face cream is a rarity. Rareness simply because I do not feel the need for them, and I think that at my age (I’m 25), without any problems, it is better not to use face creams on a daily basis.
This cream is very gentle, justifies its name by the sensations of tenderness and partly by the consistency similar to cream =) The color is white. The smell is pleasant, characteristic of this cosmetics, with the exception of products containing aloe perfume.
My skin is light, thin and tender, so if I get something, it is only for sensitive skin. And since I have been struggling with allergies for a long time, the inscriptions hypoallergenic care and approved by dermatologists positively deposited in my brain somewhere at the time of choosing a cream =)
The cream is pleasant when applied, absorbs quickly, is able to cope with the peeling of the skin. On my forehead, my skin is rather oily, but to my surprise, this cream is not fatty. In the morning, quite pleasant sensations, the skin is soft.
But since I do not use it regularly, but only when peeling occurs, I can not say if he will cope with any serious problem, and should he?
The fact is that according to my observations, funds from Concern Kalina, which are packaged, contain all the information only on it. As in the case of this cream – the description of the action was on the packaging, and on the jar only the name itself.
I don’t have the packaging anymore, so I can’t say now whether it should perform any other function besides softening the skin and fighting peeling.
– pleasant unobtrusive smell
– does not tighten the skin
– moisturizes the skin without making it more oily
– eliminates peeling skin
– does not cause allergies and irritation
I did not notice the minuses. I repeat, maybe this is because there are no special problems and the need for constant use.
I think that this cream is a good option for use from time to time, especially in winter, when the skin wears away. In this perspective, I rate him on five.
Cream for hands and nails Hundred recipes of beauty
On the tube of this cream immediately attracts attention the inscription on a green background – moisturizing and freshness. As part of the stated aloe, olive oil and lemon juice. Volume 80 ml, price 27 rubles.
The cream promises deep moisturizing of the skin of the hands, cuticles and strengthening of the nails.
I’ll start with nails and cuticles. I did not notice not only strengthening but also elemental moistening. The same applies to the elbows. With moisturizing the skin on the elbows, he can not cope at all, as a result, the elbows are dry ((
When applying the cream there is a feeling that he immediately absorbed and this amount of cream is not enough. Therefore, the consumption of the cream I get great. Although, in this case, it does not upset me, since I did not like the cream.
Moisturizing skin is not enough for the whole day. Probably, it is suitable for those who rarely come into contact with water. And my hands are often in the water. However, the cream still softens the skin. The consistency is average, I love it thicker.
As for the smell … Again, aloe perfume, as in the cream-care for hands Clean line. Either I was already very tired of this perfume, or it is really sharp in this cream. But unlike cream Pure line here it is mixed with lemon flavor. Can’t decide which is worse.
– moisturizes the skin for a while
– does not cope with moistening the skin of the elbows
– no effect in terms of nails
– not economical to use
– strong smell, besides unpleasant for me
More I will not take this cream. Yes, the skin of the hands softer, and only. With the same success, you can rub a couple of drops of vegetable oil into the skin. I think the effect will be better, and without this annoying aloe fragrance. And now I will avoid all means of Concern Kalina with aloe … My assessment of this cream is 2.
Lip balm Hundred recipes of beauty
On the balsam package there is again an inscription, which is so often found nowadays – moisturizing and freshness. Ingredients – aloe and rose oil. The cost is about 30-40 rubles.
On the package it is stated that the balm relieves the feeling of dryness and makes the skin of the lips soft. I will not argue – both effects are present, except that the action is far from long.
If daily use of Nivea lip balm without any problems, just for moisturizing and protection, I only have one-time use – only for the night, then Balm One hundred beauty recipes need to be applied three or even more times so that there is no sensation of dry lips. .
In addition, after applying the balm is constantly felt on the lips, personally it bothers me. And it also makes the lips shine.
But since I am not a fan of the glitter effect, I don’t like it. Moreover, I still bought this balm for other purposes.
I am glad that, despite the content of aloe, there is no such obsessive smell, as in creams with the same component. The smell is quite even pleasant and light, I would not have guessed that there is aloe, if not for the inscription.
It has a shelf life of three years, and it is recommended to use it after opening for 12 months. Not bad.
– softens the skin of the lips
– not prolonged action
– felt on lips
– makes lips shine
I will not take this balm anymore. Perhaps, in comparison with something, it is not bad (for example, with Avon lip balm that did not appeal to me), but there are balms that I like much more. But when there is nothing, this one will come down. My assessment to him is 3.
In general, if you sum up all three means of one hundred recipes of beauty and their comparison with the Pure Line brand, then I like the Pure Line tools incomparably more!
