Fresh, organic and renewed comeback! Not only from vacation, but also from a brand that I discovered and reviewed a few years ago and didn’t hear ever since. I have found it now again in a renewed location in the beautiful Poreč, Croatia while on a vacation trip in Istra. For those of you who want to know more here is the link on my first review.
This time I have tried some other products and will review them here so you will get a bigger picture on their whole cosmetic range.
IMPORTANT NOTE: For all of you who wonder (like me) where to buy again Apiterra cosmetics (apart in their shop at Poreč), after your vacation stock has finished, you can simply email them (their email is also on the back of every package) and they will send you the catalog and ordered products wherever you are.
Apiterra cinnamon body scrub
I couldn’t resist the temptation of all the wonderful and TRULY organic scents that emanated from their shop. Although I am aware that I have to choose products not by scent but by my skin condition. This is what also the brand owners will thoroughly explain you when looking for a product. Visiting the shop is a great experience per se, also because of their great knowledge about skin, aromatherapy, plants and much more! I truly enjoyed the conversations and their great service.
This great body scrub is based on olive oil (truly organic olive oil produced by them!), sugar, beeswax, cinnamon and vitamin C with essential oils. The scent is amazing and effect on the skin after showering leaves you with a super soft skin, nourished and protected with a light layer of oils. Cinnamon is the key ingredient, that differs from their other 2 body scrubs, and thus is great for improving blood circulation and consequently detoxing the body (even from unwanted cellulite!).
Apiterra Virgo Organic Moisturizing face cream
Since I was looking to try something very hydrating after sun exposure, I decided to try this day cream among their 3 face creams for different skin conditions. Virgo day cream is made to hydrate and nourish the skin because of Olive oil and organic honey, while the 3 local and typical key ingredients Immortelle, Sage and Mint help as skin purificators to achieve a flawless, clean texture. This is a nice protective day cream that will act against any environmental pollutant, while giving your skin nourishment from nature.
Immortelle oil – Rich in minerals and vitamins that strongly regenerate and rejuvenate the skin. Removes spots, stains, flattens wrinkles, making the skin smooth, soft and toned.
Sage oil – called the queen of herbs for their wide medical properties (from latin: Salvia = salvare = rescue). Antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic, soothes, heal and help with expanded pores.
Mint oil – deeply cleanses the pores while hydrating, tones the skin and stimulate circulation
Apiterra Body oil with carrot and walnut
After vacation we all want our skin to be soft and hydrated. As I already told you my favourite and innovative product for this is by far Apiterra Body chocolate that I reviewed here. But this didn’t stop me to try something else. I was advised to try their Carrot and Walnut Body oil for its ultra hydrating properties that help you maintain the suntan too. Because of beta carotene is also perfect to prepare your skin before sun exposure, which I find amazing!
Walnut oil – has regenerative and moisturising properties. Rich in cinnamic acid, which provides protection from the sun and accelerates the tanning of the skin. Rich in vitamin E and antioxidants.
Carrot oil – Rich in beta carotene which protects the skin from oxidative damage and accelerates tanning. Rich in vitamins A and C, nourishes dry skin, increases moisture, regenerates and prevents skin ageing.
This body oil is a true gem and a fantastic product based on ancient knowledge on how to treat the skin, especially to prevent sun damage. And who would know better than people who live on seaside since ever?
All these 3 products are packed in glass jars. Except the body lotion. I have chosen the one made from Immortelle and Calendula, also typical herbs from Croatian Mediterranean. I love its hydrating and soothing effect that it leaves on the skin.
You should also try their lip balm and soaps (made even for face!). I am really amazed again and again by this beautiful brand, who makes such great products, using local ingredients cultivated organically and simple recipes with just a few but wisely selected ingredients. Apiterra is the real synonym of TRULY ORGANIC COSMETICS. Big, big like again in Croatia!

This kind of brands which formulate simple recipes (=more active ingredients) make you closer to nature and this is almost touching. ☺

I am a super huge fan of Apiterra products. I discovered them on a trip to Croatia several years ago and keep on coming back there because I need to stock up on their products! I hope they will set up an online shop soon. I will forever be thankful that they got me into using deodorant based on soda bicarbonate. Currently I use the face scrub (camomilla), toner, face cream (virgo natura) and most often their marvelous body oil (walnut, carrot, olive oil) which works for my face, too 🙂 I was used to natural cosmetics before but their’s just work better for me.The family who makes these products is super nice and kind and always fun to talk to, too.
