Gerovital Plant - Micellar Lotion Cleanser - Why so disliked?

Dear Roses and Lilies,

Although this product from Gerovital Plant has not gotten very good reviews on the net, I thought I might help you decide to at least try it. Don't be alarmed, this is not a sponsored product, so my review is all the more objective.

Dragi Roze si Crini,

Desi acest produs de la Gerovital Plant nu a beneficiat de recenzii prea bune pe net, m-am gandit sa va ajut sa va decideti sa il incercati, macar. Nu va speriati, nu e produs sponsorizat, deci recenzia mea e cu atat mai obiectiva.

This micellar lotion was launched as a result of the micellar waters frenzy. Lots of cosmetics brands followed in the trend launched by Bioderma, which, by the way, is still and always will be a staple product in my beautification room. The one from Gerovital Plant will be there as a back-up.

Aceasta lotiune micelara a fost scoasa pe piata ca urmare a freneziei pentru solutiile micelare. Multe marci de cosmetice s-au luat dupa trend-ul lansat de Bioderma, care, apropos, este si va fi mereu in camera mea de infrumusetare. Lotiunea de la Gerovital Plant va fi acolo ca rezerva.

Here is the list of ingredients:

Iata lista de ingrediente:

Aqua, PPG-26-Buteth-26, PEG-40, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Glycerin, Poloxamer 184, Xylitylglucoside, Anhydroxylitol, Xylitol, Allantoin, Polyaminopropyl Biguanide, Bisabolol, Tetrasodium EDTA, Leontopodium Alpinum Extract, Alcohol, Sodium Hydroxide

Among the ingredients listed, there are some guilty of leaving your skin feeling sticky. Yes, I know, it's not something one would normally go for. But, here comes the good part. :-) I use this lotion whenever I run out of Bioderma, and don't feel like buying a fresh supply of it right away. What I am using the Micellar Lotion Cleanser for is removing my heavy eye makeup. Because it is oily, rather than watery and refreshing, it helps dissolve mascara and sticky eyeshadows more easily. It can also replace your eye cream, because it is quite moisturizing as well.

Printre ingrediente, sunt unele care sunt de vina pentru senzatia lipicioasa, care ramane pe piele. Da, stiu, aceasta senzatie nu este in mod normal ceva pentru care sa opteze cineva. Dar, vine si partea buna. :-) folosesc aceasta lotiune cand raman fara Bioderma si nu am chef sa imi refac stocul imediat. Folosesc aceasta Lotiune Micelara Demachianta ca sa scap de machiajul intens de pe pleoape si gene. Pentru ca este o lotiune uleioasa mai degraba decat apoasa si racoritoare, dizolva rimelul si fardul de pleoape rezistent foarte usor. Ar putea chiar sa ia locul cremelor voastre de ochi, pentru ca si hidrateaza destul de bine.

Going back to the sticky, oily feel, think of it this way: if you ever removed eye makeup using oil, you would get the exact same feeling you get with this lotion. So what do you do after using oil to remove your makeup?

Revenind la senzatia lipicioasa si uleioasa, ganditi-va la urmatorul lucru: daca ati folosi vreodata ulei ca sa scapati de machiajul de pe pleoape si gene, ati avea parte de exact aceeasi senzatie pe care o aveti dupa ce folositi aceasta lotiune. Deci ce faceti dupa ce va demachiati cu ulei?

I'll let you ponder on it and reply (whether you agree or disagree with me), in the comment box below. :-)

Va las sa reflectati asupra acestui aspect si sa imi raspundeti la intrebare (chiar daca sunteti sau nu de acord cu mine), in casuta pentru comentarii de mai jos. :-)

In the meantime, you see how the castor oil is the fourth ingredient on the list, which means the amount of it in the product is high. It is a Ricinus communis plant extract, used for many purposes. Here, it is used as an emollient, and together with the Edelweiss extract and the allantoin, moisturizes and conditions your skin.

Intre timp, observam ca uleiul de ricin este al patrulea ingredient pe lista, ceea ce inseamna ca produsul destul de mult ulei. Este extras din planta Ricinus communis, si este folosit in multe scopuri. Aici, este folosit pe post de substanta emolienta care, impreuna cu extractul de floare de colt si alantoina, hidrateaza si conditioneaza pielea.

For me, beside of the benefit of having my eye makeup removed properly, it calms my sensitive eyes when I'm extremely tired. Which makes all the sticky, oily feel seem irrelevant.

In cazul meu, pe langa beneficiul de a scapa eficient de machiajul de pe pleoape si gene, imi calmeaza ochii sensibili cand sunt extrem de obosita. Ceea ce face ca senzatia lipicioasa si uleioasa sa para un aspect irelevant.  

Hope you liked this post and I am eagerly awaiting your comments!
