Well, today I bring you a wonderful British duo. I got these samples to try out recently. The brand is AURELIA PROBIOTIC SKINCARE, a British skincare brand that is, as the name says, probiotic and has 100% BioOrganic formulas that treat and love your skin without the burden of chemicals. "Aurelia Probiotic Skincare prides itself on its beautiful mix of science and natural luxury. All products are free from synthetic fragrances, parabens, mineral oils, silicones, sulphates, propylene glycol, phthalates, GMO, PEGs, TEA and DEA. We never test on animals".
I must say fell head over heels for this brand’s image! It’s really my style – really refined and luxurious, but still very cute and lady-like.
The products that really got to me were the brand’s sweetheart, the Miracle Cleanser, and the Cell Repair Night Oil. A few days after finding out about this brand, I got these beautiful mini-bottles in the mail, with a bamboo-fiber cloth (which is anti-bacteria). Perfect!
I was super excited to try these out and I must say, at first, I didn’t think I was going to be able to write a full review on the cleanser, since the bottle is so little! But it lasted me almost a whole month, a little goes a reaaally long way!
Let’s start: this Miracle Cleanser is the most wonderful thing that ever existed! I love it! It’s a cream formula for all skin types that, when applied to dry skin, turns into a creamy oily formula that removes the skin’s impurities and dirt. I tried it with and without makeup and I love it both ways (but when using makeup, I’d use it twice or use it once followed by a regular cleanser). It has a very natural scent from the essential oils that really relaxed me. It’s not a cleansing cream for the lazy ones that just want to get it off quickly, but for the people who, like me, enjoy this routine! For the people who like to take the time to massage their faces and all. But, if you’re like me, you’re going to love it! It’s delicious! I used it also with and without the cloth and it definitely works better with it. This cloth is really, really soft, not at all aggressive – my skin has been extra sensitive lately because of my acne medications and this didn’t cause me any kind of discomfort! (Also, you can just pop them in your machine and they'll be clean as new.)
It is totally approved, I really want to purchase it!! J

As to the Cell Repair Night Oil, I also liked it a lot! It wasn’t a love as big as the last, but still a great affair! It’s very light so it absorbs really quickly. I apply it after my toner – applying 3 drops to my hands, rubbing them together and, then, pressing them gently to my face –, and I let it absorb for 5-10 minutes before applying my night moisturizer. It smells… Well, it smells like baby products and also a little tiny bit like burnt rubber (very, very lightly, though, you can barely tell). As I don’t have wrinkles just yet, I can’t say If it works on them. But it did speed up my cell turnover, that I can assure!
I also experimented the Midnight Recovery Concentrate by KIEHL’S and I think I liked it a bit better, but this is a good second option.

They’re both non-comedogenic, so oily and acne-prone skin ladies, don’t fear! ;)
Summing up, it’s a lovely brand that I think will really blossom!
You can get these products from their officialwebsite or at NET-A-PORTER in their new beauty section.
