I was recently offered the opportunity to try out a few products from Markastore.com, a website that offers Romanian skincare products. I've never tried Romanian skincare, and to be honest, was a bit nervous. However, I think I may have a new favorite lotion...
$24.99 for 8.5 fl oz
Intensely moisturizing, compensates the shortcomings of lipids, soothes and restores comfort and suppleness. Protects against the daily stress factors. Skin appearance becomes visibly better, firmer and more elastic. Pell Amar Extract- natural source of energy for the skin - helps mentain skin functions under various daily stressors. Visibly improves skin appearance, acquires firmness and elasticity.
Enhanced with a mixture of oils, shea butter and vitamin E (tocoferyl acetate) to:
-hydrate dry and irritated skin;
-revitalize tired and dry skin;
-help skin regeneration;
-stimulate and activate microcirculation.
I love putting this on after a shower. The texture of the product is similar to other body creams in squeeze tube (like Bath & Body Works), but I like the formula of Pell Amar better. I feel like it absorbs just a bit better, moisturizes a bit longer, feels a smidge richer. I am also obsessed with the scent. It's has a soft, light, creamy citrus scent, a little reminiscent of a creamsicle, without being overly sweet or cloying. It smells fantastic. I'm seriously in love with this stuff--the product itself is maybe a Holy Grail, five star product for me. The major downside is the price, especially when you add on shipping. *sad trombone* It's kind of a deal breaker... However, if you ever spot it on sale, and with cheap shipping, grab it while you can!!!
