EOS Lip balm

img_8665

To je spet eden takšnih izdelkov, ki sem si ga želela zelo dolgo vendar pa si ga nisem nikoli kupila, dokler ga nisem zagledala v drogeriji v Sloveniji. Seveda sem takoj zagrabila priložnost, da ga preizkusim. Če pa me spremljate že dalj časa pa tudi veste, da sem obsedena z balzami za utnice. 🙂

This is again one of those products I wanted for a long time but never bought it until I saw it in a drugstore in Slovenia. Of course I took that chance to try it out. If you follow me for a longer time then you also know that I’m obsessed with lip balms. 🙂

Embalaža je drugačna, kot smo jih vajeni pri balzamih. Balzam ni v stiku, ampak je v plastičnem jajčku. Odpira se enostavno in tudi tesni dobro. Embalaža je mat in tudi na otip je prijetna ter ne drsi v rokah. Sam balzam je v obliki polovice jajčka. Nanos je enostaven, kljub drugačni obliki. Jajčka je seveda bolj nepraktična kot tipičen stik, saj zavzame malo več prostora a če uporabljete torbico vas to ne bo motilo. Sama balzama ne nosim s seboj, ampak ga uporabljam v glavnem doma.

The packaging is different then what we’re used to with lip balms. The balm is not in a stick but in a plastic egg. It opens easily and closes good. The packaging is matte and nice to the touch as it isn’t slippery in the hands. The balm itself is shaped like half of an egg. The application is easy despite the different shape. The egg is of course more impractical then a typical stick because it takes up more space but if you use a handbag the this will not bother you. I myself don’t carry the balm with me because I use it at home.

Sweet Mint

EOS (Evolution of Smooth) trdi, da so njihovi balzami za ustnice 95% organski, 100% naravni, brez vazelina in parabenov. Vsebujejo vitamin E, karitejevo maslo in jojobino olje, ki poskrbijo za mehke, navlažene in gladke ustnice. Sestavine so res odlične.

EOS (Evolution of Smooth) claims that their lip balms are 95% organic, 100% natural, paraben and petrolatum free. They contain vitamin E, shea butter and jojoba oil that keep your lips soft, moisturized and smooth. The ingredients are really excellent.

Ker je pri nas na voljo kar nekaj različic, sem se odločila poskusiti sladko meto (Sweet Mint) s katero se mi je zdelo, da ne morem zgrešiti. In res je bilo tako. Balzam je v mint embalaži in tudi nasplošno je barva embalaže, jajčka, odvisna od vonja/okusa balzama. Balzam zaradi mete na začetku ustnice rahlo hladi, čez čas pa se le-ta razdiši in ostanejo le negovane ustnice. Ker sem iskreno navdušena nad balzamom sem v Avstriji (izbira tam je namreč večja) kupila še balzam z okusom melone (Honeysuckle Honeydew), ki diši res lepo po meloni. Balzam je lepo mazljiv in tudi prijeten na ustnicah. Na ustnicah se obdrži kar nekaj časa, seveda je vse odvisno od tega koliko pijete in jeste.

Because there are a few different versions in our stores I decided to try Sweet Mint because I felt I can’t go wrong with that one. And so it was. The balm is in a mint packaging and generally the color of the packaging, egg, depends on the scent/flavor of the balm.  The balm cools the lips slightly in the beginning because of the mint but after a while it’s feeling decreases and you’re left with nourished lips. Because I’m honestly impressed with the balm I bought another one in Austria (the choice there is bigger) with the melon flavor (Honeysuckle Honeydew) that smells really nice and like melon. The balm is nicely spreadable and also really pleasant on the lips. It stays quite some time on the lips but that depends on how much you eat and drink.

Honeysuckle Honeydew

Odkar sem kupila tale balzam drugega niti pogledala nisem in če bo tudi pozimi tako uspešno negoval moje ustnice se zna zgoditi, da bo prehitel mojega trenutno najljubšega od Nuxe-a. :O Za balzam boste plačali okoli 6€ za 7g, kupite pa ga lahko v kateremkoli Mullerju ali D&M-u. V Avstriji v Douglasu boste našli malo večjo izbiro okusov, prav tako imajo kreme za roke in telo. Jaz balzam priporočam!

Since I bought this lip balm I haven’t even looked at another one and if it’s going to successfully nourish my lips in the winter time as well then it’s possible that it will substitute my current favorite from Nuxe. You will pay around 6€ for 7g and you can buy it in any Muller or D&M. You will find a bit bigger choice of flavors in Austria in Douglas and they also have hand and body lotions as well. I recommend the lip balm!

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

Melvita: 3 roses nectar lip balm

Kot pravi odvisnik, post o moji “odvisnosti” najdete tukaj, sem nedolgo nazaj kupila tale balzam za ustnice, ker sem ga enostavno morala poskusiti. 🙂 Na splošno, ko se gre za Melvitino kozmetiko, sem ali zaljubljena v izdelek ali ga niti malo ne maram. Na srečo sem v večino izdelkov, ki sem jih poskusila popolnoma zaljubljena. To je prvi izdelek, ki mi je sicer zelo všeč, nisem pa (še) zaljubljena.

Like a true addict, you can find the post about my “addiction” here, I bought, not so long ago, this lip balm, because I just had to try it. 🙂 In general, when it comes to Melvita cosmetics, I either love or hate the product. Luckily I love the majority of the products that I tried. This is the first product I really like, but I’m not (yet) in love.

Balzam za ustnice je v belem lončku z rožnato pisavo in z zlatim pokrovom na navoj. Embalaža mi je všeč in zdi se mi kvalitetna. Balzam je nežno rožnate barve, kar se mi zdi edino prav, saj že samo ime nakazuje na to. Tudi vonj je nežen in blag, po vrtnicah. Čeprav vonja po vrtnicah v kozmetiki ne maram preveč, mi ta prav diši.

The balm comes in a white jar with pink lettering and a screw on gold lid. I like the packaging and it looks to be good quality. The balm is iridescent shade of pink, which seems only right, as the name suggests it. Even the scent is delicate, it smells like roses. Although I don’t like the scent of roses in cosmetics too much, I really like this one.

Melvita trdi, da balzam navlaži, zgladi in zmehča kožo ustnic. Navlaži in zmehča jo res, ne morem pa trditi, da jo zgladi. Tekstura je trda a se ob stiku, zaradi toplote prsta, zmehča. Jaz jo ponavadi zajamem kar z nohtom, nanesem in razmažem po ustnicah. Balzam ni lepljiv, zato tudi ne dolgo obstojen. Kljub temu, če ne pijem ali jem, ostane na ustnicah do dve uri. Ustnic ne obarva, ampak jim da zdrav sijaj. Sestavine so zelo dobre, saj je na prvih dveh mestih karitejevo maslo in kokosovo olje, vsebuje pa še druga olja in izvlečke vrtnic. Meni je zelo všeč, ampak mojega medenega balzama od Nuxa še ni prehitel. Vseeno ga zelo rada uporabljam, saj sem se že naveličala vonja medu.

Melvita claims, that the balm moisturizes, smoothes and softens the lips. It does moisturize and soften the lips, but I can’t say that it smoothes them. The texture is firm, but the warmth of the finger softens it. I usually scoop it out with my fingernail, apply and smear it all over the lips. The balm is not sticky/tacky so therefore not long-lasting. Nevertheless if I don’t drink or eat, it does stay on the lips up to two hours. It doesn’t color the lips, it just gives them a healthy shine. The ingredients are very good, shea butter and coconut oil on the first two spots and it contains other oils and rose extracts. I like it a lot, but my Nuxe honey balm is still better. However I really like using it, because I’m tired of the honey scent.

Balzam torej priporočam, saj je kvaliteten in dobro opravi svoje delo. Zanj sem odštela 12,70€, kupila sem ga v Müllerju.

I do recommend the lip balm, because it’s great quality and it does the job. I paid 12,70€ and I bought it in Müller.
