I won a giveaway in this blog ,that gave me the opportunity to buy some products in this e-boutique Petals and Post. Thanks very much Jane from and Petals and Post for this unique opportunity. You should get a look at her blog, I do love her reviews and post. I found Petals and Post an amazing place to buy luxury organic products. I found myself exploring the web site like a children in a candy store.

Eu ganhei um sorteio no blog, que me deu a possibilidade de comprar alguns produtos no site Petals and Post. Muito obrigado Jane do Blog e Petals and Post por esta oportunidade única. Aconselho vivamente darem uma olhada no seu blog, eu gosto imenso das suas reviews e post. Eu encontrei no site Petals and Post, um lugar incrível para comprar produtos orgânicos de luxo. Eu encontrei-me a explorar o site como uma criança numa loja de doces.

I bought 3 products The Face Food Mineral Mist and Green Cream by Graydon and The Brightening Serum by Kahina. I used them for the 3 months with 3 other cleansing products the Balance Me Pure Skin Face Wash, Green People Fruit Scrub Exfoliator and Skin & Tonic Steam Clean . In the last month I have been using Logona Age Protection Cleansing Foam.

Eu comprei 3 produtos The Face Food Mineral Mist and Green Cream by Graydon e The Brightening Serum by Kahina.
  Eu usei-os durante 3 meses com outros 3 produtos de limpeza Balance Me Pure Skin Face Wash, Green People Fruit Scrub Exfoliator e Skin & Tonic Steam Clean . No ultimo mês tenho usado Logona mousse limpeza anti-envelhecimento.

Here the description of the products / Descrição dos produtos ( em inglês peço descupa):
Our mist is a luxurious way to keep your skin healthy and fresh. The unscented mineral formula intensifies hydration keeping your face rejuvenated and restored. It is formulated with three key ionic minerals (copper, silver and zinc) that quickly absorb into the subvascular layer of the skin for deep hydration. Copper helps the production of collagen, the protein responsible for the structural integrity of the skin. It is also involved in the production of elastin, the protein that is mainly responsible for the elastic properties of blood vessels and skin. Silver effectively penetrates skin cells to kill bacteria and help to neutralize harmful sodium-fluoride found in the drinking water with which you wash your face. Lastly, when zinc is used topically on the skin, it is an excellent way to decrease inflammation because it helps stop chronic bacterial infection that causes one’s face to appear red and blotchy.
Use on its own or mist your face after applying your Graydon Skincare moisturizer of choice and/or The Serum.
Ingredients: purified water (aqua), blended with dissolved magnesium from concentrated sea water (magnesium chloride), ionic copper (cuprum), ionic silver (argentum), ionic zinc (zinc) and nothing else!
How to use: Daily: Spritz directly onto freshly cleansed face. For extra absorption and hydration, mist after you apply your favorite Graydon moisturizer, oil or serum.
As Toner: Dampen a cotton pad and spread across your face.
For Men: Use daily as an after shave to help kill germs that cause acne and ingrown hairs. Alcohol free, it won't sting after you shave your face..
This is an amazing mist, I just love it. Calms the skins, helps the serum to be better absorbed. The skin get to be more radiant, hydrated, balance. For me there are no cons. The price is reasonable for the product (32 cad Petal and Post). I will purchase again.

Este “mist” é incrível, simplesmente adoro-o. Acalma a pele, ajuda o sérum a ser melhor absorvido pela pele. A pele começa a ser mais radiante, hidratada, equilibrada. Para mim não há qualquer contra. O preço é razoável para a qualidade/quantidade do produto (32 cad Petals and Post). Eu vou voltar a comprar.

It´s a rich cream that need to be very well massaged into the skin.. For my combo sensitive skin, it not usable in very hot weather, but in September I found it ok. In the beginning I had breakouts on my chin and around my nose. Didn´t stop using the cream, because I knew this could happen, the skin was detoxifying and adapting to a organic cream. I used my nº1 gel to eliminate spot locally and after 2 weeks I had no more breakouts. It´s a nice cream, with a different scent but agreeable. The cons is not quick to apply and absorbed. The composition is amazing, it´s a good cream for normal/dry skin.

É um creme rico que precisa ser muito bem massajado para ser absorvido na pele. Excelente para pele normal a seca. Para minha pele mista e sensível, não posso usar quando o tempo está muito calor, mas em meados de Setembro, achei que poderia começar a usá-lo. No começo, eu tinha borbulhas no meu queixo e em volta do meu nariz. Não deixei de usar o creme, porque eu sabia que isso poderia acontecer, a pele estava a desintoxicar-se e adaptar-se ao creme orgânico. Eu usei o meu gel nº1 para eliminar as borbulhas localmente e ao fim de 2 semanas eu não tinha mais borbulhas. O creme “ Green Cream” é um bom creme hidratante, com um aroma diferente ao que estamos acostumados, mas muito agradável. O lado negativo é que não é rápido de aplicar e ser absorvido. A composição é incrível, é um bom creme para pele normal / seca.

For a organic brightening serum, it does works. The scent is very nice. Love the texture, not greasy. It´s not aggressive for the sensitive skin and my dark marks reduce like 20% in 3 month. It´s not a miracle worker, but it does make a difference, more than other serums that I used, that did nothing. It really do what it promises to do. The big cons is the price, it´s very expensive, if you live in Europe. In USA the price is more affordable. Will I buy it again, well yes. The better price you can get is in the petal and post even with the 19 cad P&P to Europe.

Este sérum aclarador orgânico funciona mesmo. O cheiro é muito agradável. Adoro a sua textura, não oleosa. Ele não é agressivo para a pele sensível e minhas manchas escuras reduziram 20% em três meses. Não faz milagres, mas nota-se uma diferença, mais do que outros séruns que eu usei, que não fizeram nada. Este sérum realmente faz o que promete fazer. O grande contra é o preço, É muito caro, se você vive na Europa. Nos EUA o preço é mais acessível. Será que vou comprá-lo novamente? Certamente. O preço melhor que encontrei é na loja Petals and Post mesmo com os portes 19 cad para a Europa.

This cleanser is the best one for me for the hot season, it´s the best. When the cold season comes it gets to be to drying. For combo skins even sensitive that gets to be more oily, it´s perfect. I will repurchase in the spring.
Este produto de limpeza é o melhor para minha pele para o tempo quente. Quando tempo fica mais frio, a minha pelo começa a ficar mais ressequida. Para peles sensíveis, mesmo que seja mista, a tendência oleosa, este é o produto perfeito. Eu voltar a comprar na próxima primavera

Green People Fruit Scrub is an effective natural exfoliator for deeply-cleansed, radiant skin. This natural skin care product is made without Parabens, Lanolin, ethyl alcohol, artificial perfumes, petrochemicals, phthalates and colourants to bring you the purest exfoliator that nature can offer.

Apply Green People Fruit Scrub to clean, dry skin using small circular movements. Rinse with lukewarm water, then a splash of cold. Follow with a serum and a day or night cream of your choice. Use once/twice weekly.

This exfoliator does have quite large sized granules and leave my skin a bit irritated on my checks. I massage very slowly in my sensitive areas and normally in the T zone. It´s not the right exfoliator for my combo sensitive skin.

Este esfoliante tem grandes grânulos esfoliantes na sua textura e deixar a minha pele um pouco irritada principalmente na zona das bochechas. Eu massajei muito lentamente nas áreas mais sensíveis e normalmente na zona T. Não é o esfoliante indicado para minha pele mista e sensível.

It´s a nice cleansing balm, smells very good, not very good to oily skins, calms my reactive skin from the winter´s heating. Find it a great for cold season for my combo sensitive skin that get to be more dry. I might repurchase.

É um bom bálsamo de limpeza, cheira muito bem, não aconselho a quem tenha pele oleosa, acalma a minha pele reativa do aquecimento do inverno. É excelente para o Inverno em que a minha pele fica mais seca e sensível. Poderei voltar a comprar pois há outros no mercado que gostaria de experimentar.

Age Protection Cleansing Foam frees your skin gently but thoroughly of particulates, make-up residues and excess skin oils, and prepares it optimally for the skin care treatment to follow. The mild formula, which includes aloe vera, extracts of bamboo and algae, and a small amount of plant-derived suds­ing agents, gives your skin with a fine, matte texture. The pleasantly mild foaming action leaves the skin feeling clean, supple and smooth. The natural skin care complex protects the skin from dehydration and has a moisturizing effect.

 Ingredient List: (INCI/CTFA) Aqua (Water), Glycerin, Alcohol*, Coco Glucoside, Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate, Sodium Cocyl Glutamate, Disodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Glyceryl Oleate, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Leaf Extract*, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract*, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder*, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Sea Buckthorn) Fruit Extract*, Citric Acid, Parfum (Essential Oil), Linalool, Limonene *Certified Organic

I need 3 pumps to clean well my skin. Doesn´t dry my skin, makes my skin smoother, love it for the cold weather.

A espuma de limpeza Age Protection com extratos de bagas de espinheiro-amarelo*, camomila* e hamamélia*, bem como aloé vera*, remove suavemente da pele partículas de pó, maquilhagem e oleosidade em excesso mas também limpa os poros em profundidade. A sua formulação suave contém pequenas doses de agentes de limpeza de plantas e deixa a tez com uma aparência mais fina e ligeiramente mate. O seu complexo tonificante natural protege a pele contra a perda de hidratação, repondo o seu equilíbrio lipídico natural. Simultaneamente, a sua espuma agradavelmente macia deixa a pele suave.
De manhã e à noite, massaje suavemente na pele húmida e, em seguida, enxague bem com água tépida.

Preciso de 3 bombadas de espuma para limpar bem a minha pele. Não seca a pele, deixa-a mais suave, gosto muito de o usar no tempo frio.
