Since I started my Goodiebox subscription, I haven’t been shopping for beauty products at all. But lately I’ve used most of my skincare products and I decided to check out local drugstore.
One of the most popular drugstores in the Netherlands is Kruidvat. They have 1+1 free promotion from time to time and I happened to pick the best time to visit their website (due to pandemic I still avoid going places other than grocery store).
1+1 free promotion is tricky in my opinion. It’s good to save money but also you can end up with more products than you intended to buy and have to use it up before it goes bad. But let’s dive into the products I got in this haul!
Freeman Facial Clay Mask Avocado & Oatmeal
€4.99 for 175 ml
Let’s start with a product that I have yet to use. I’m running low on my face masks collection and I decided to get something that will not only clean but also moisturize my skin. I’ve never used avocado 🥑 and/or oatmeal masks, so I’m curious about it.
Nivea Cherry Blossom & Jojoba Olie Body Soufflé
€7.49 for 200 ml
My grandmother loved her Nivea cream. Her entire life she wouldn’t use any other cream, so this brand has sentimental value in my mind. Unlike my grandmother, I like to explore more skincare options and I love this Body Soufflé. It’s moisturising and it has a nice scent that lasts on my skin for hours. (It might be a downside for some people.)
Therme Ibiza Flow Body Butter
€10.49 for 225g
This is another product that I have yet to try. I have love-hate relationship with body butters in general. I think they are more of a winter time product, because of their consistency but since I live in the Netherlands, I may give it a shot during summer time as well 😉
Biodermal Dag & Nachtcrème
€19.99 for 50 ml
This brand has excellent reviews online, so I decided to give it a shot. It’s a day and night cream for all skin types but I use it as a night cream as it has thicker consistency.
After couple uses I’m not impressed with it for this price but I will give it a try for sure. Usually I don’t use face creams with consistency as thick as this one, so maybe that’s why I feel this way.
Kruidvat Concentrated Nail & Gel Polish Remover w/ Acetone and provitamine B5
€1.99 for 250 ml
I know acetone nail polish removers are frowned upon but this nail polish remover is not as harsh on the nails, as other acetone nail polish removers can be. It also works fast to remove every bit of nail polish from the nail, so I prefer it over other nail polish removers I’ve tried.
Kruidvat updated design of their home brand products, so I spend a good minute wondering if it’s the same product I already use, or if it’s nail polish remover in a spray can 😅
Kneipp Massage Oils
€9.79 for 100 ml
I discovered power of massage couple years ago and I love it. I had it done professionally and also by my friends. It is a great way of taking care of your body and taking necessary me-time.
Since I used Kneipp massage oils for the first time, I always look for them. They have nice smell and are very relaxing.
Again, 1+1 promotion at Kruidvat helped me with not having to go to the drugstore anytime soon 😅
