Products I Have Been Testing Lately (CeraVe, Misha, Yanumi, Vichy)

In the past few months I bought (and recieved) quite some products, so I wanted to do some mini reviews. In this post there will mostly be products that I got in summer-time but I will also try to do a post about some that I treated myself with for my birthday in September (mostly hair stuff).

CeraVe SA Smoothing Cleanser and Smoothing Cream*
I talked about some CeraVe products on my blog before. I bought some of their products before we even had the brand in Slovenia, but now CeraVe sent me a few to try. The SA line products I had tried before, so I already knew I would like them. They contain salicylic acid that removes dead skin cells, cleanses, and improves the texture of the skin. The cleanser is gentle and cleans the face well. I love it in combination with Balea BHA liquid peeling but I don't use it every day because I feel it would dry out my skin. The SA smoothing cream is meant to be used on the body - I use it on my arms because I have keratosis pilaris and a bit on my things. It helps a lot with clearing the skin. 

CeraVe Moisturizing Cream and Moisturizing Lotion*
The Moisturizing Cream and Lotion were new to me but I heard so many good things about them. One of my favourites, the PM Moisturizing Face Lotion, is from the same line. The moisturizing lotion is a bit lighter in consistency, spreads easily, and sinks in fast, and the cream is more nourishing. I used both and I like both, in the summertime I preferred the lotion because it was quicker to use, but now I just keep one at my boyfriend's and one at home.

Vichy Capital Soleil Eau de Protection SPF 50*
I got this at the end of summer but I enjoyed using it. It's a spray that disperses sunscreen evenly. The formula is quite oily but not as oily as Nivea Protect & Bronze, for example. I used to love that one but now I can't use it anymore because it feels so sticky and I can't get an even application. This Vichy one is better, you can spread it on the skin evenly and it doesn't feel sticky but it does nourish the skin a bit. Although I do like it, I wouldn't really use it as an everyday sunscreen because I don't know yet how it would perform with clothes but for the beach or the pool is great. It protected my skin well but do consider that you need a heavier amount of sunscreen to really protect the skin, you can easily apply too little with a spray bottle. I do love the summerish scent and the vibrant design of the bottle.

Missha All Around Safe Block Aqua Sun SPF 50+
Missha changes their sunscreen names and packagings so often that I'm not sure if I have used this one before. It's okay, it's not bad at all, it has a very light consistency and sinks into the skin fast but it does leave a thin film that I don't like. I still much prefer my Garnier Ambre Solaire Fluid.

Yanumi Organic Shea Butter and Floral Gardens Natural Deodorant*
First, I wanted to only feature these two products in the post but then I actually made a whole blog post about them here, so I will just quickly recap my review. Yanumi is a Slovenian natural skincare brand and I got two products to test - a natural deodorant and shea butter. I was impressed by both - the deodorant works all day on me, even on the hottest days it performed great - and the shea butter is great for dry skin, I mostly use it on my feet before bed, so my feet stay soft and nourished.
