bioderma atoderm

biodermaatoderm1Even though I’ve experienced cold, dry, Canadian winters my entire life, I still struggle with the skin problems it creates. My legs especially get extremely dry and itchy and I am always excited to try out products that will help combat that. For the past few weeks the whole family has been using these new Bioderma Atoderm products specifically created for dry (or very dry) sensitive skin and I’ve gotta say… they’re all amazing.

Gentle Shower Gel

[BI652V1]

Allergen-free, Soap-free, Paraben-free scented formula with no artificial colouring, Naturally bluish colour, Hypoallergenic

Like I said above, the whole family has been using this and I have noticed that even if I forget to apply lotion right after a bath, everyone is less itchy and no one feels like sandpaper. It foams up nicely with a puff, and the scent is extremely delicate and clean. I love the pump top as we waste less product and the bottle is huge so it will last us quite a while.

Ultra-Nourishing Balm

Atoderm PP Baume prevents severe and recurring skin dryness. Its Écodéfensine® patented complex regulates the skin’s ecosystem and preserves its biological balance.

[BI 560]

Fragrance-free formula, Paraben-free, Hypoallergenic

My husband was extremely excited about this because he has some damage to the lipid layer on his face and this restores lipids… he’s been using it for a few weeks and has found that it has reduced the redness and his skin isn’t as dry. It absorbs very quick in to my skin and even 12 hours after applying I still feel moisturized. One of the product benefits they list is that it improves the patient’s quality of life due to scratching in your sleep and I can absolutely say that it has.

Moisturizing Stick

[BI 577]

Scented formula: delicious raspberry fragrance, Allergen-free, Paraben-free, Hypoallergenic

I can never have enough lipbalms in my life – and this one is fantastic. I love that it’s clear and so I don’t have to worry when I’m applying it on the go, I feel comfortable using it on the kids, and the raspberry scent is amazing. It feels very light on my lips and they feel hydrated for a couple hours after applying.

Overall I am extremely happy with these products, and if you are trying to combat dry skin I highly suggest checking them out!

the body shop – limited edition smoky poppy collection

The Body Shop - Smoky Poppy CollectionHappy Tuesday everyone! I have a really great collection to share today – The limited edition Smoky Poppy Collection from The Body Shop.

2 weeks ago the only time I thought about poppy’s was in November for Remembrance Day. Did you know one species of poppy produces edible seeds that contain opium? Or that the Greek goddess Demeter’s emblem is the poppy? Thank you Wikipedia. Anyway, on to the collection…

Smoky Poppy Shower Gel
The Body Shop - Smoky Poppy CollectionLather up with this rich, black and seductive Smoky Poppy Shower Gel. Infused with hand harvested poppy extract from Turkey, the euphoric scent will make shower-time a whole new experience.

• Amazing black formula will cleanse your deepest impurities
• Lather-rich
• Euphoric scent
• Enriched with Community Fair Trade Honey from Ethiopia.

I was surprised when I squeezed this on to my shower pouf that it is indeed black. The smell is beyond euphoric… very earthy…. deep floral, spice and smoke. If you asked my husband he would say it’s a man’s scent… but I would consider it unisex. You know when you walk past one of those places that sell incense? Sorta like that.

Smoky Poppy Body Massage Oil
The Body Shop - Smoky Poppy CollectionMassage on liquid love. Our sensual Limited Edition Smoky Poppy Massage Oil is key in the art of seduction. Infused with the extract of hand-picked poppy petals, the alluring scent will captivate and entice every body it touches.

• Suitable for all skin types
• Conditioning formula
• Ideal for couples
• Enriched with Community Fair Trade Marula Oil from Nambia

What can I say other than… it’s literally liquid love. I… we…. we like it.

Smoky Poppy Body Butter
The Body Shop - Smoky Poppy CollectionThe Body Shop - Smoky Poppy CollectionSuccumb to silky-smooth skin with our seductive Smoky Poppy Body Butter. Infused with the extract of oil-rich poppies, it delivers a touch of blissful moisture to leave skin feeling desirably soft.

• Up-to 24-hours of skin hydration
• Best suited for normal to dry skin
• Euphoric scent
• Enriched with Community Fair Trade Shea Butter From Ghana

This is one of the only scented lotions I have that my husband is okay with using, which makes me happy… because it smells amazing. It is a thick cream, but it absorbs in to my skin quickly.

Smoky Poppy Poppy Seed Body Scrub
The Body Shop - Smoky Poppy CollectionThe Body Shop - Smoky Poppy CollectionOur Smoky Poppy Poppy Seed Scrub is filled with real poppy seeds for a blissful exfoliation leaving skin primed for passion.

• Euphoric scent
• Lifts away dead skin cells
• Massage on to stimulate microcirculation
• Leaves skin sensually soft
• Enriched with Cane Sugar from Paraguay

I haven’t come across a scrub I didn’t like… and this is no exception – however, it does leave a bit of a residue on my skin after using, which clogs up my razor… so I have to use it after shaving, and poppy seeds obviously don’t dissolve like sugar or salt does – so I have to remember to rinse the shower out. I do love how it makes my skin feel though, and the smell… yup.

Lip & Cheek Velvet Stick in Red
The Body Shop - Smoky Poppy CollectionThe Body Shop - Smoky Poppy CollectionThe Body Shop - Smoky Poppy CollectionThe Body Shop - Smoky Poppy CollectionInspired by the super-bright and sensual poppy flowers this cute Lip & Cheek Velvet Stick gives lips a pop of color and cheeks a naturally flushed glow.

• Suitable for both lips and cheeks
• Velvety, petal-soft formula
• Medium Coverage
• Matte Finish
• Easy application
• Subtle floral scent
• Enriched with Community Fair Trade Beeswax from Cameroon

I didn’t think I would like this – but the medium coverage almost makes this a ‘my lips but better’ shade. There is some feathering, but nothing a clear lipliner can’t prevent. Personally I won’t use it on my cheeks, because I am no good at putting cream blush on – I always look like a clown – but this did seem to blend well. I am interested in checking out their other shades, including the Universal Shade.

Smoky Poppy Blush Brush
The Body Shop - Smoky Poppy CollectionThe Body Shop - Smoky Poppy CollectionSweep on seduction with our Limited Edition Smoky Poppy Blush Brush. The super soft brush allows a seamless application of color. The black handle allows the brush to stand upright.

• Easy to use
• For face and body
• Petal-soft application
• Suitable for all skin types

This is just straight up cute. I need to find something I can carry it in without wrecking the bristles as it is the perfect size for my purse. It’s extremely soft and I just love the design.

The Body Shop - Smoky Poppy CollectionOverall the entire collection was a hit for me, and I will definitely be picking up more Body Butter and Shower Gel before this collection disappears!

Will you be checking out any of the Smoky Poppy collection?
