CUSTOMER INTERVIEW | MALGORZATA BRZAKALSKA
Hi Malgorzata! Thanks for taking the time to share your skin journey with us. Before making the switch to Apoterra, what were your main skin concerns?
My sensitive skin tended to be both dry and normal, with my main concerns being dryness on the upper parts of my cheeks and both sides of my lips moving down to the corner of my chin, and slight redness on my cheeks. Of secondary concern were a few fine lines, redness on the bridge of my nose, as well as my irritation to fragrances.
Can you tell us which products you tried and the results you noticed?
I began using the Night Clarifying Treatment with Chamomile + Sea Buckthorn, the Rose Nourishing Serum, the Night Regenerative Balm, the Hibiscus Exfoliating Mud Mask and the Herbal Steam. In 2 to 3 months, I noticed clearer, blemish-free skin, and my dryness diminished by about 70%.
We’d love for you to walk us through your daily skincare routine.
In the morning, I use a toner followed by the Rose Nourishing Serum applied using a face roller along my face, neck and décolleté, and I finish with SPF by SkinCeuticals. At night, I first cleanse, then tone, and then apply the Night Regenerative Balm to my face, and finish up by applying the Night Clarifying Treatment to my neck and décolleté.
What are your favorite Apoterra Skincare products?
My favorite Apoterra Skincare products are the Night Clarifying Serum, Hibiscus Exfoliating Mud Mask with Rosehip and Acai, and the Herbal Detoxifying Steam with Flowers and Cleansing Herbs.
Anything else you would like to share about your experience with our brand and/or products?
A few years back, I was diagnosed with multiple skin allergies including fragrance allergies. I was receiving a list of cosmetics from my dermatologist that I could safely use, but deep down, I knew that there was something more I could be doing. I started researching online for local and regional companies, and found that they were usually created by people who either had an experience like mine, or they felt that there were not enough high-quality, natural beauty products on the market. At the same time, I was also testing products meaning one new product every week. I noticed more and more information about ingredients, home-care, and the dos and don'ts of skincare on Apoterra’s website and blog since I started using the products which has been both informative and helpful. I decided to try Apoterra because of the brand’s pure and simple ingredients and because of the honest vibe that comes from the brand, as well as your story. I also love the labels, packaging, holistic approach and the fact that the products are produced locally (in my favorite city :D).
