Replenish Facial Moisture with Apivita Express Beauty with Cucumber - review and photos


Apivita Express Beauty Intensive Hydration Mask with Cucumber
Happy New Year everyone!!! Recovering after partying too much? Is your face looking dull, tired and dehydrated after drinking too much alcohol, coffee and soda? Cause my face looks tired and bloated, can't stand to look in the mirror these days!
Yes, all these drinks really dehydrate your body and your skin. Apart from the simplest remedy which is drinking enough water, here's another option which will do the trick and replenish your facial moisture: a facial mask.

An Nou fericit tuturor!!! Cum ati petrecut? Va refaceti dupa atata distractie? Ati ramas cu o fata obosita si deshidratata de la atatea bauturi alcoolice, sucuri si cafele? Eu nu suport sa ma vad in oglinda zilele acestea, arat obosita si umflata! Caci da, toate bauturile astea deshidrateaza ingrozitor organismul si, implicit, pielea. In afara de a bea apa, o alta optiune pentru a va hidrata pielea este masca faciala de hidratare.

Before New Year I had used a great Tony Moly hydrating mask (review here in the last part of the post), but this time I am  trying out something else. So, today I am reviewing Apivita Express Beauty with Cucumber, an intensive hydration mask. Cucumbers are more that 90% water which makes them the ideal ingredient for facial hydrating masks. If you don't like applying cucumber slices on your face, this Apivita mask could be an alternative. 
It contains 95% natural ingredients, like jojoba and avocado oil which nourish and hydrate the skin, as well as green tea water to enhance the antioxidant action and geranium essential oil for toning and hydrating the skin. 
It is free of parabens and Propylene Glycol. Excludes synthetic ingredients that may pose harmful effects to your health and the environment.

Inainte de sarbatori mi-am aplicat o masca hidratanta excelenta (asiatica) de la Tony Moly (puteti citi recenzia in partea doua a articolului de aici), dar de data asta folosesc altceva. Asa ca zi va voi spune cate ceva despre Apivita Express Beauty Masca Intensiv Hidratanta cu Castravete. Castravetele contine peste 90% apa, aceasta proprietate facandu-l ideal pentru a fi folosit pentru hidratare. Daca nu va place sa aplicati rondele de castraveti pe fata, masca de la Apivita este, cu siguranta, alternativa perfecta.
Contine 95% ingrediente naturale: ulei de jojoba si de avocado, care hranesc si hidrateaza epiderma; ceai verde pentru a potenta actiunea antioxidanta; ulei esential de geranium pentru tonifiere si hidratare. 
Nu contine parabeni sau Propylene Glycol. Nu contine ingrediente sintetice ce pot avea efecte daunatoare asupra sanatatii.

How to use: 
Apply an even, rich layer on a cleansed face avoiding eye area. Leave the mask on for 10 minutes and thoroughly rinse off with water. Use 1-2 times weekly or as often as needed. For external use only.

Mod de utilizare:
Aplicati in strat gros, uniform pe fata curata, evitand zona ochilor. Lasati masca pe fata timp de 10 minute, apoi clatiti bine cu apa. Folositi o data sau de doua ori pe saptamana, ori dupa necesitati. Doar pentru uz extern.

My opinion:
It has a lightweight texture, not greasy, smells nice and feels refreshing on the face. It is very efficient, the skin feels really soft and hydrated. One sachet can be used twice, at least I felt it was too much product for one usage.
I am actually loving these single-use sachets from Apivita, they are perfect if you travel. I like being able to try out different types of masks without spending a fortune. I will surely try other masks cause Apivita has a facial for everyone. I have already spotted Moisturizing and Revitalising Mask with Prickly Pear, Radiance and Revitalizing Mask with Pomegranate, Line Reducing and Firming Mask with Grape, Dark Circles and Eye-Puffiness Mask with Ginkgo for my puffy eyes, as well as the Gentle Exfoliating Gel with Apricot to see if it's better than my L'Oreal Triple Active Vivifying Scrub (you can read the review here).

Parerea mea:
Are o textura usoara, fara a fi grasa, miroase frumos si improspateaza aspectul fetei. Este foarte eficienta, pielea ramanand moale si hidratata. Un pliculet poate fi folosit chiar si de doua ori, cel putin eu am avut impresia ca tot pliculetul era prea mult pentru o singura aplicare.
Chiar imi plac aceste pliculete de la Apivita, sunt perfecte pentru calatorii, cand nu vreti sa carati un tub intreg dupa voi. Fiind cantitate mica, puteti incerca diverse tipuri de masti, fara a cheltui multi bani. Eu, cu siguranta, voi mai incerca alte masti de la ei, pentru ca Apivita are multe masti cu diverse efecte. Am pus deja ochii pe Apivita Moisturizing and Revitalising Mask with Prickly Pear, Radiance and Revitalizing Mask with Pomegranate, Line Reducing and Firming Mask with Grape, Dark Circles and Eye-Puffiness Mask with Ginkgo (pentru ochii mei umflati), precum si Gentle Exfoliating Gel with Apricot pentru a vedea daca este mai bun decat L'Oreal Triple Active Vivifying Scrub pe care il folosesc acum (puteti citi review aici).

  7. I've been a fan of this specific brand for years now; I've also visited their factory where they produce everything, and after having seen how the employees work, what a beautiful environment they're surrounded with and how kind everyone is, I must say this is one of the best companies out there!

    1. Eu nu am incercat multe produse de-ale lor, mi se par cam scumpe. Doar masca si un balsam de buze. Dar as incerca si creme.
      Pupici si scuze pentru raspunsul cam intarziat.
