Boots Expert Sensitive Cleansing Lotion

 In urma cu cateva saptamani faceam un tur al farmaciilor Sensiblu in cautarea acestor 2 produse din poza, insa nu am reusit sa gasesc decat gelul de curatare si demachiantul de ochi din aceeasi gama. Noroc cu draga de Alina, care vazuse produsul intr-o farmacie din Baneasa si mi l-a luat (ea e o bomboana de fata in general ). Pretul era redus la 28 de lei (25 cu card Sensiblu).
  Imi propusesem sa incep sa le folosesc de la 1 septembrie (cand urma sa primesc si produsele Paula's Choice), insa am trisat cu cateva zile si acum ma bucur ca am facut asta, caci am observat o imbunatatire a aspectului pielii doar prin utilizarea acestor demachiante.

  Descrierea de pe eticheta o puteti vedea in poza de mai jos. Iata care e parerea mea : demachiantul e alb, laptos, destul de dens ca si consistenta (insa nu intr-atat de dens incat sa am probleme la dozare). Folosesc o cantitate de marimea unui bob de mazare pentru demachierea fetei (intr-o zi normala port fond de ten mineral, pudra si putin blush, tot mineral).
  Machiajul este inlaturat usor si rapid, nici macar nu e nevoie de o a doua discheta (am testat). Ca si formula, este fin si foarte placut, iar tenul ramane proaspat si catifelat. Miroase neutru, dar ok, caci nu contine parfum.


Cantitatea e generoasa, de 200 ml, insa deja ma streseaza gandul ca nu-l voi mai gasi usor cand se termina (e un mister total cu produsele Boots Expert; daca se vor mai aduce la Sensiblu, daca doar sunt reformulate, iar daca sunt reformulate, oare vor contine iritanti?).
Mii de multumiri Corinei, datorita careia am descoperit aceste produse, dar si altele... sper sa revii curand, Corina!

Iata si ingredientele, cu explicatii detaliate :

Aqua (Water)

Paraffinum Liquidum (Mineral Oil)Clear, odorless oil derived from petroleum that is widely used in cosmetics because it rarely causes allergic reactions and it cannot become a solid and clog pores. Despite mineral oil’s association with petroleum and the hype that it is bad for or ages skin, keep in mind that petroleum is a natural ingredient derived from the earth and that once it becomes mineral oil USP (cosmetics- and pharmaceutical-grade mineral oil), it has no resemblance to the original petroleum.
Cosmetics-grade mineral oil and petrolatum are considered the safest, most nonirritating moisturizing ingredients ever found.

PPG-15 stearyl ether Polypropylene Glycol (PPG)-11 Stearyl Ether and PPG-15 Stearyl Ether are colorless or light yellow, oily liquids. In cosmetics and personal care products, PPG Stearyl Ethers are used mainly in the formulation of moisturizers and cleansing products.

Sorbitan stearateUsed to thicken and stabilize cosmetic formulations.

Butylene glycolCommonly used slip agent that has multiple functions in cosmetics, depending on the formula. Similar to propylene glycol but with a lighter texture. The Cosmetic Ingredient Review board has evaluated several toxicology tests and other research concerning butylene glycol and has determined it is safe as used in cosmetics products (Source: 2008 CIR Compendium.). 

PhenoxyethanolCommon cosmetic preservative that is considered one of the less irritating ones to use in formulations. It does not release formaldehyde.

Aqua mineralis (mineral water)

Sucrose cocoate Provides pleasant re-fatting & emollient effects, effective moisturizer, increases foam density, viscosity & mildness of cleansing products, increases gentleness & creaminess of creams & lotions, thickening effect.

MethylparabenGroup of preservatives, including butylparaben, propylparaben, methylparaben, and ethylparaben, that are among the most widely used group of preservatives in cosmetics. It is estimated that more than 70% of all cosmetic products contain some form of paraben. Parabens are believed to cause less irritation than some preservatives and offer broad antifungal and good antibacterial activity.

Carbomer : Group of thickening agents used primarily to create gel-like formulations.

Propylene glycolAlong with other glycols and glycerol, this is a humectant or humidifying and delivery ingredient used in cosmetics. There are Web sites and spam e-mails stating that propylene glycol is really industrial antifreeze and that it is the major ingredient in brake and hydraulic fluids. These sites also state that tests show it is a strong skin irritant. They further point out that the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) on propylene glycol warns users to avoid skin contact because systemically (in the body) it can cause liver abnormalities and kidney damage. As ominous as this sounds, it is so far from the reality of cosmetic formulations that almost none of it holds any water or poses real concern.

PropylparabenGroup of preservatives, including butylparaben, propylparaben, methylparaben, and ethylparaben, that are among the most widely used group of preservatives in cosmetics. It is estimated that more than 70% of all cosmetic products contain some form of paraben. Parabens are believed to cause less irritation than some preservatives and offer broad antifungal and good antibacterial activity.

Potassium hydroxide : Also known as lye, a highly alkaline ingredient used in small amounts in cosmetics to modulate the pH of a product. It is also used as a cleansing agent in some cleansers. In higher concentrations it is a significant skin irritant.

Tetrasodium EDTAChelating agent used to prevent minerals present in formulations from bonding to other ingredients.

BHT Butylated hydroxytoluene, a potent synthetic antioxidant that also has carcinogenic properties when consumed orally (Sources: Mechanisms of Ageing and Development, May 2002, pages 1203–1210; and Free Radical Biology and Medicine, February 2000, pages 330–336). The amount of BHT uses in cosmetic products is typically 0.01-0.1%, and does not pose a cancer risk to skin, nor does it penetrate skin far enough to be absorbed into the bloodstream 

Aloe barbadensis leaf extract :There is no real evidence that aloe vera (Aloe barbadenis) helps the skin in any significant way. An article in the British Journal of General Practice (October 1999, pages 823–828) stated that “Topical application of aloe vera is not an effective preventative for radiation-induced injuries…. Whether it promotes wound healing is unclear…. Even though there are some promising results, clinical effectiveness of oral or topical aloe vera is not sufficiently defined at present.” There is research indicating that isolated components of aloe vera, such as glycoprotein, can have some effectiveness for wound healing and as an anti-irritant .

 Dintre ingrediente, doar 2 (Potassium hydroxide si BHT, printre ultimele) sunt mai putin in regula, dupa rating-ul celor de la CosmeticsCop, restul fiind trecute cu smiley galben-verzui.



  Poate pe unele dintre voi va mira ca folosesc si chiar recomand un astfel de demachiant (parabeni, mineral oil - ai innebunit, Geo?) insa pe mine efectele m-au convins. Conteaza in primul rand frumusetea pielii mele si apoi piticii bio - pe care ii tin sub control cu altele, bineinteles .

  Voi scrie in curand si despre demachiantul de ochi si gelul de curatare, insa va pot spune de pe acum ca unul imi place mult si altul mai putin (ghici care si cum!).

Ati incercat produsele Boots Expert, v-au placut?

  1. AM si eu spuma demachianta, tot pentru tratamentul Paula's Choice am luat-o, ca sa urmez pe cat posibil recomandarile Corinei. Imi place, curata bine si e usor de folosit. Sa vedem daca o mai gasim ulterior.

  3. Eu le-am cautat, tot de la Corina am aflat de ele, dar nu le-am gasit, la Sensiblu mi-a spus ca nu mai aduc gama Boots decat in anumite farmacii din orasele mari :(. Am luat in schimb Jason Natural Fragrance Free Satin Soap de pe i-herb si sunt super extra multumita.
    Sunt curioasa cum e demachiantul de ochi, astept sa vad ce ne zici despre el.

  4. Sadie, tare mult sper sa nu dispara de la noi... mi se parea cel mai accesibil produs din lista Corinei, iar daca n-o voi mai gasi, va trebui sa comand online ceva similar. Imi place mult ca e spuma :)

    Alina : asa am simtit si eu cand ti-am citit articolul, trec pe la tine sa comentez imediat :) Pup

  5. Coconut, cel de la Jason e varianta mea de rezerva in cazul in care nu voi mai gasi Boots. Pe i-herb voi da si eu o comanda curand, ce ai mai luat fain de acolo? Pupici

  8. Pentru mine am luat doar gelul de spalare (in rest folosesc produsele Paulei), dar am luat pt. copil pasta de dinti, gel de dus, sampon. Zilele astea ar trebui sa imi ajunga niste creme luate pt. mama, pe baza recomandarilor Paulei. Imi place site-ul, au rpeturi bune si transport mic.

  9. Multumesc mult, Ioana, ma bucur ca iti place :)

    Pinkie : I know, I know, dar stau 8 ore pe zi intr-un mediu bio unde nu sunt tolerati :))

    Coconut : de o saptamana folosesc produsele Paulei si acest demachiant si secretia de sebum mi s-a diminuat cu peste 90% :) Esti si tu multumita de ele? Eu deja ma pregatesc sa strang bani pentru urmatoarea comanda. De pe iherb vreau si eu gel de dus si sampon, am ochit cateva variante. Intr-adevar, preturile sunt super. Pupici

  10. Sunt multumita de produsele Paulei, din aprilie folosesc lotiunea BHA, si din iunie produsele pt. hidratare si protectie. Cel mai mult ma incanta ca am scapat de punctele negre, chiar nu credeam ca e posibil.
    Singurul minus e shipping-ul, ma enerveaza sa dau pe shipping aproape cat pe un produs full-size.
    Nu stiu daca ai vazut, dar cei de la PC Europe au introdus un program de partnership foarte avantajos. Poate se inscrie cineva si de la noi, si reusim sa luam produsele fara shipping-ul acela urias.
