Homeoplasmine

30 January 2014

Homeoplasmine
Ahh, Homeoplasmine. Another product that is currently doing the blogger rounds, I bought this little tube in a Parisian pharmacie for €5,80 (although Beauty Mart are now selling it online, priced at £6.00). I'll be perfectly honest and say that this purchase was wholly influenced by this Lily Pebbles post. After a couple of months kicking around in my handbag/on my bedside table, I thought that it was about time I added to the hype...

To start with, lets talk packaging. Homeoplasmine is housed in a small metal tube, which whilst not glamorous, is perfect for being bashed around in the depths of my handbag. It's refreshing to spend my money on a product, and not the fancy packaging it comes in. The content of the tube is a clear cream which to my nose has no apparent scent. Despite being really emollient it feels almost matte once applied, and in addition to its moisturising properties, Homeoplasmine contains anti-septic ingredients.

First and foremost, Homeoplasmine has served in my makeup bag as an excellent lip balm. It's one of the most intensely moisturising balms that I own, I love how a thin layer isn't at all sticky, but leaves me with smooth lips which form a great base for lipstick After a recent bout of the flu, I also discovered that Homeoplasmine is great for soothing irritated skin - particularly around my nose. I've since been applying it as a bit of a wonder cream, including on my cuticles. This cream is a great all rounder, which is a welcome addition to my collection.

  2. I haven't been able to find this in Canada but I've heard so many great things about it and I'm quite tempted to try. Hopefully I'll be able to come across this and give it a try myself.

  12. Being from the USA I rarely pay attention to skincare posts/reviews from other country's bloggers since I know I'll typically have to pay an arm and a leg just to get it to me. But darn it you made me want this!
