Planter’s – Now in Malta – Young and Natural Aloe Vera Repairing Cream

Hello beauty readers,

Planter’s Cosmetica Naturale is now available in Malta. How great is that? If you don’t know about Planter’s you are about to be lectured. Planter’s is an Italian cosmetic company which works to create products that are eco-friendly, made only from natural ingredients, safe on skin and most importantly not tested on animals.

Most of their product is made from Aloe Vera and Sweet almond. I have been familiar with Aloe Vera  for quite a while and I am very impressed by its healing nutrients.  On the other hand, sweet almond is also known and used to smoothen and soften the skin. I was lucky enough my get my hands on the Aloe Vera Repairing Cream, thanks to the Planter’s cosmetics in Malta. The packaging is really cool; I simple love the graphic design on each tin, which varies in different patterns and colours.

Now as about the cream itself, it is instantly absorbed into the skin and little goes a long way. I have to confess something, I am really at taking care of my skin, I always forget to put lotions on, except for the weekend. However a great way for me to actually start using hand creams, was taking them at work with me. My hands and elbows for a fact are always very dry and flaky, and since I started applying this cream on me, it really worked wonders.  Apart from that my colleague recently had a sun burn and her face was very dry, she was asking if we had any lotion, and I saved the day with the Repairing cream.  She truly loved the lotion, it really helped her dry skin from one application, and it was smooth back again.  Apart from that the smell is very pleasant, it’s hard to recognize but it reminds me to that of a coconut.  It also can be used on all skin types including men and children.

These beauties contain 75ml of product and it costs €6.50 only, and if you want a larger size you can opt for the 150ml but it has regular tube packaging.

Pros:

  • Beautiful packaging,
  • It truly repairs the skin from dry it makes it soft
  • Very good affordable price
  • Perfect for any season from winter cracks to summer burns

Cons:

  • There are none, honestly and truly

Will I ever buy this product again? Probably, I have been relying a lot on this cream recently, so I will probably repurchase it.

Do I recommend it? For sure, this cream is a must have. I carry it around with me everywhere especially now in summer when my skin feels really dry, and it’s great as an after sun cream. I suggest you give their website a look by clicking here.  You can also check out their Local (Malta) facebook page by clicking here and you will find Planter’s at all leading pharmacies on the Maltese Islands and selected salons.

Anatomicals -Help the paw- Vitamin Rich Hand Cream

Anatomicals have taken Malta by storm, and there are three simple reasons why this is happening. They have great quality products, which are cool and even cheap, what else could we want ? Today I will review their popular hand cream called Help the paw – Vitamin rich hand cream. I have been testing this product for a while now and it truly keeps my hands well hydrated and a tiny bit goes a long way.

C1

It comes in a 100ml tube, with a hilarious tagline like all of their other products. If you think about it, it is actually so true, they do want me for my body :P. I can’t quite put my finger on the scent, I think is a bit lemon-ish, but it could be something else. The important thing is that it smells nice and the scent its not too strong. It contains vitamin E and sweet almond oil, which is there to nourish and soften the skin.  Some creams tent to be too runny or take a long time to dry, but “help the paw” is very light and it is absorbed very easily. I do suggest that you don’t apply a huge amount as it can have a quick moment of stickiness, but if  you rub it in a bit further it will go away.
