Ecco Verde Purchase09:56
I had the opportunity to buy some products from Ecco Verde and I grabbed the chance, right away. I admit I have not been buying from them before, but I did have my eye on their online store before. When I saw that they had the entire section for neurodermatitis, I couldn't hide my excitement.
Ok, little story from the past for anyone who's interested. Who's not, skip this section. Basically I was diagnosed with neurodermatitis when I was 4 years old. It was difficult in that time, because there was no cure, except cream full of corticosteroids, which are pretty bad for you long term and actually make skin thinner. My problem was I was allergic to everything form food, to dust, animals so on. I scratched my skin so much, that it started bleeding. So I constantly had scabs. I won't go into detail that of course I had a very low self-esteem because of that. I did get a new doctor in seventh grade and a new cream, which changed my life. As you may see from the photos now, my skin looks great (well, you have nothing to compare to - but believe me it beats the scabs!).
So... My skin is combination to oily and still very sensitive. My allergy still shows in forms of irritations and occasional red spots on my skin. Many products don't work for me, because they irritate my skin and I get redness and sometimes even itchiness. BUT, I have for you some products that did work for my sensitive skin and I would love to share my experience with those products with you.
Ecco Verde gave me free hands to choose which ever products I wanted and I chose Pai Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser, Martina Gebhardt Sheabutter Tonic and Dr. Sheller Jojoba Oil & Schisandra Soothing Intensive Serum. As a little treat I also bought Badgers Sleep Balm, because I do have trouble sleeping a lot of times.
Pai Camellia & Rose Gentle Hydrating Cleanser is amazing. I especially love the smell of it and the feeling that it leaves on the skin.
Martina Gebhardt Sheabutter Tonic is very hydrating. Not greasy at all, as shea butter might suggests.
Dr. Sheller Jojoba Oil & Schisandra Soothing Intensive Serum is my favorite products of them all. I never used oils before and now I'm definitely not going off this one. Amazing! Especially for sensitive skin.
Badger Sleep Balm is a fun product. Don't expect it to be a sleeping pill. It's more of a fun night treatment :).
I really liked all of the products and will do a separate post for each, to review it in depth. I guess all I can say is, if you're interested in any of these products keep an eye on my posts.
And big thank you to Ecco Verde for letting me chose some products in their online store. I didn't even know that, but they ship to many European countries. Their delivery was very quick, I think I got it the second day. I highly recommend them. They sell natural cosmetics and body care. I have to admit they have some great brands. Oh and can I just say, finally! One Slovenian online shop that actually has Paypal as an payment option. Yes, other Slovenian online stores, this is a good example for you!
