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: Hydrating Milky Mist + GIVEAWAY

IMG_7848

Tole mlečno meglico iz linije Nectar de Roses oziroma Rožni nektar sem slučajno zagledala v Mullerju in hitro me je zamikala, saj mi zadnje čase izredno dišijo izdelki z vrtnicami. Po kakem tednu pa me je moj dragi presenetil in mi jo kupil. 😉

I saw this milky mist from the line Nectar de Roses accidentally in Muller and was intrigued quite fast, because lately I’ve been loving products with rose scent. After about a week my honey surprised me and bought it for me. 😉

IMG_7533

Meglica je v prozorni plastični embalaži s špricalko. Embalaža je učinkovita in priročna. Ker je v plastenki je super za potovanja, saj ni skrbi, da bi se zlomila. Sama meglica je mlečno bele barve. Kot sem že omenila diši po vrtnicah. Vonj je precej intenziven, zato vam meglico odsvetujem, če ne marate vonja vrtnic. Vonj se dolgo obdrži na koži, vendar pa se po pol ure malo razdiši in vonj več ni tako močan. Kakorkoli, meni odlično diši.

The mist comes in a plastic packaging with a spray. The packaging is effective and convenient. Because it’s in a plastic bottle it’s great for traveling because you don’t have to worry about it breaking. The mist itself is milky white. As I mentioned already it smells like roses. The scent is pretty intense, so I don’t advise it if you don’t like the scent of roses. The scent lingers on the skin quite long but after about half an hour it’s not as strong anymore. However, I love the scent.

IMG_8030

Melvita trdi, da ima meglica lahko teksturo in formulo, obogateno s cvetno vodico vrtnice, zagotavlja 24 urno vlaženje in takojšen občutek svežine. Meglico sem poskusila takoj, ko sem jo dobila, saj me je koža na nogah srbela, ker je bila izredno suha. Meglica se z lahkoto razmaže po koži, vendar pa postane po tem rahlo lepljiva, kar pripisujem glicerinu na drugem mestu med sestavinami. Lepljiv občutek izgine po par minutah in ostane navlažena in dišeča koža. Meglica je v mojem primeru kožo v trenutku pomirila in sama sem bila presenečena nad tem, saj tega iskreno nisem pričakovala.

Melvita states that the mist has a light texture and formula enriched with rose floral water, providing 24 hour hydration and an immediate feeling of freshness. I tried the mist as soon as I got it because the skin on my legs way extremely dry and itchy. The body mist is easily spreadable on the skin but it leaves a sticky feeling after, which is probably because the glycerin is second on the ingredients list. The sticky feeling disappears after a few minutes and you’re left with moisturized and scented skin. The mist calmed my skin down instantly and I was very surprised by that because I honestly didn’t expect that.

Meglico sem nesla s seboj tudi na dopust in z veseljem sem jo uporabljala čez dan in zvečer. Tudi uporaba pod oblačili ni problematična, saj se izdelek popolnoma vpije v roku 5 minut. Meglico lahko tudi hranite v hladilniku in tako je občutek svežine še bolj intenziven. Meglica je kožo učinkovito navlažila in pomirila tudi takrat, ko sem se predolgo izpostavljala soncu.

I took the mist with me on vacation and I was happy to use it during the day and in the evening. Using it under clothing isn’t a problem because the product is completely absorbed within 5 minutes. You can also store the body mist in the refrigerator so the feeling of freshness is even more intense. The mist effectively hydrated and calmed the skin even when I was lying out in the sun for too long.

Meglico priporočam vsem, ki ne marate težkih krem in losijonov poleti, ampak imate raje nekaj lahkega, kar se hitro vpije in za sabo pusti navlaženo kožo. Meglico je moj dragi kupil v Mullerju in zanjo odštel 18,30€ za 150ml, ki bo po moje dovolj za čez poletje.

I recommend the mist to all that don’t like heavy creams and lotions in the summer but prefer something lighter that absorbs quickly and leaves a hydrated skin behind. My honey bought the mist in Muller and paid 18,30€ for 150ml which will be in my opinion enough for the summer.

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.

IMG_6658

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.

IMG_6659

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.

IMG_6661

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.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte. 😉

Moja odvisnost?

Partner me je nekaj časa nazaj vprašal od katerega produkta sem odvisna? Čeprav je pri ličilih in kozmetiki težko ostati pri enem ali dveh produktih pa sem se po dolgem razmisleku odločila, da je to najverjetneje balzam za ustnice, saj ni pomembno koliko jih imam, če opazim nekaj kar mi je všeč, bom to kupila. 😀 Tako imam v vsaki torbici najmanj enega, na vsaki polički enega ali dva, tudi po predalih in žepih se vedno kotalijo. Ne vem zakaj je temu tako, ampak to je pač produkt, ki ga vedno znova in znova kupujem, saj se mi vedno zdi, da pa jih še nimam dovolj. Prav tako imam zahtevne ustnice, ki se rade izsušijo in vedno iščem kaj boljšega. 🙂 Verjetno je razlog tudi ta, da večina balzamov ni tako draga in potem nakup s tem upravičim.

IMG_6437

My boyfriend asked me a while ago which product am I addicted to? Although it’s hard to stay with one product when it comes to make-up and cosmetics, after a long deliberation I decided that it would probably have to be the lip balm, because no matter how much of them I have, if I see something that I like I will buy it. 😀 I have at least one in every purse, one or two on every shelf and even in drawers and pockets I can find them rolling. I don’t know why it’s like that, but that’s just a product that I tend to buy all the time, because I always think that maybe I don’t have enough. I also have very demanding lips that chap easily so I’m always on the lookout for something better. 🙂 The reason for that is also that the majority of lip balms is not that expensive.

Moj najljubši je in verjetno še dolgo bo Nuxe Reve de miel balzam za ustnice. Ne bom vsakega posebej opisovala, ker bi predolgo trajalo, bom pa naredila seznam vseh, ki jih imam oziroma vseh, ki so na sliki, saj vseh niti našla nisem. Obupna sem, saj vem. 😀 In ko ravno govorimo o moji odvisnosti sem v torek kupila še enega, katerega sem si nekaj časa ogledovala in sicer Melvita Rožni nektar za ustnice. Če bi radi, da določenega opišem oziroma ocenim bolj natančno potem mi to povejte v komentarju. 😉

IMG_6088

My favorite is and probably will be for some time the Nuxe Reve de miel lip balm. I won’t review each and every one, because it would take too long, but I will make a list of all of the lip balms that I have or the ones that are in the picture, because I couldn’t find all of them. I’m terrible I know. 😀 And now that we’re talking about my addiction, I bought another one on Tuesday. It’s Melvita 3 roses nectar for lips. If you would like me to review any of the lip balms listed below just let me know in the comments. 🙂

Ali imate vi kakšno odvisnost? Kateri produkt vedno kupite, čeprav imate doma že cel kup produktov za isti namen? 🙂

Do you have any addictions? Which product do you always buy, even though you have many of them for the same purpose at home already? 🙂

Seznam mojih balzamov / My lip balm list:

Lip smacker (8 različnih okusov / 8 diferent flavors), Nuxe Reve de miel lip moisturizing stick, Bio Beaute by Nuxe lip balm with apricot butter X2, Avene Cold cream lip balm, Dr. Hauschka lip balm, Dvorec Trebnik honey lip balm, Vichy Capital Soleil lip stick medium protection, Dr. Pasha lip balm, REN Vita Mineral lip balm, Carmex original tube lip balm, Nuxe Reve de miel lip balm X2, Melvita 3 roses nectar for lips.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 🙂

Produkti, ki mi niso všeč #1

Čeprav ponavadi pred nakupom kakega izdelka vedno pregledam ocene, videe, itd. na internetu, pa se zna zgoditi, da za kak izdelek ne najdem ocene ali pa so ocene super, ampak meni izdelek ne ustreza. Zato bom vedno, ko bom imela tri izdelke, tudi to potem napisala in povedala, zakaj meni osebno izdelek ni bil všeč.

Although I usually read many reviews, watch videos, etc. of products before I buy them it sometimes happens that I can’t find a review or the reviews are great, but the product doesn’t work on me. So every time I will have three products that were a miss for me, I will write which ones they were and why I didn’t like them.

1. Artdeco podlaga za ustnice Beauty balm lip base

Ko so mat tekoče šminke postale hit, sem hitro želela slediti množici in jih tudi sama uporabljati. Ker sem brala ocene in izkušnje drugih blogerk, sem se odločila, da bo najboljše, da poiščem bazo za pod šminko, ki bo naredila nošenje le-te tudi bolj prijetno. Ker sem potrebovala nekaj na hitro, sem se odločila kupit izdelek, ki se ga dobi pri nas v trgovini.                                                                                                                             Kupila sem Artdeco Beauty balm lip base. Izdelek sem najprej poskusila brez šminke, torej samo tale »balzam«. Izdelek je precej tekoč, rahlo obarvan, vonj je blag. Neke razlike nisem opazila na samih ustnicah, razen tega, da so bile malo bolj svetle. Sem mislila da bo razlika opazna, ko bom nanesla čez tekočo šminko. Razlike ni bilo. Izdelek ni storil ničesar. Več učinka je imel moj najljubši balzam od Nuxea, kot tale, ki bi naj bil podlaga za šminko. Izdelek naj bi dal ustnicam push-up učinek, podaljšal obstojnost, nevtraliziral barvo ustnic in še kaj, ampak edino kar sem opazila je, da je izdelek posvetil barvo mojih ustnic. Prav tako naj bi bil vlažilen, kar ni. Da, moje ustnice so zahtevne in se hitro izsušijo, ampak ta izdelek jih vsekakor ni obvaroval od tega.                                                                                                                                Za izdelek sem plačala nekaj okoli 13€, kar se mi zdi za nekaj, kar ponavljam, ne naredi ničesar, izredno veliko. Izdelka ne priporočam.

IMG_6380

When matte liquid lipsticks became a hit I wanted to follow the crowd and start using them. Because I was reading reviews from other bloggers I decided that it would be best if I found a base for under the lipstick, that will make wearing it much more comfortable. I wanted something quick so I decided to buy a product that was available in our stores.       I bought the Artdeco Beauty balm lip base. I tried the product without the lipstick first, so just the “balm” by itself. The balm is pretty liquid, slightly colored with a mild scent. I didn’t see a difference on the lips except that they were a little lighter. I thought that the difference would be visible when I would apply the liquid lipstick. There was none. The product didn’t do anything. My favorite Nuxe balm had a bigger effect then this one that is supposed to be a base. The product is supposed to give the lips a push-up effect, increase durability, neutralize the color of the lips and so on, but the only thing that I noticed was that it lightened the color of my lips. It is also supposed to be moisturizing and it’s not. Yes, my lips are … and they chap really fast, but this product didn’t prevent that from happening.     I paid around 13€ which is absolutely too much for a product that doesn’t do anything. I don’t recommend this product.

2. Maybelline Instant age Rewind concealer

O tem izdelku sem slišala veliko dobrega. Veliko blogerk je ta korektor hvalilo in ker imam sama zelo temne podočnjake sem ga morala poskusit. Izdelek sem si naročila preko spleta in komaj sem čakala, da ga poskusim. Na mojo žalost sama nisem navdušena nad korektorjem. Najprej naj omenim embalažo. Čeprav je ideja mogoče dobra, pa mi izvedba ni všeč. Da dobim želeno količino produkta moram kar nekaj časa vrteti potisni sistem. Ko končno nekaj produkta pride na aplikator, ki je zelo nehigieničen, ga ne morem razmazati pod očmi, saj tako odstranim tekoči puder, katerega vedno nanesem prvega. Z aplikatorjem zato tapkam pod očmi in ker je aplikator precej trd, se mi zdi da naredim več škode kot koristi na tanki in občutljivi koži. Korektor sicer deloma zakrije moje temne podočnjake in predel pod očmi tudi osvetli, saj sem izbrala en odtenek svetlejšo barvo, kot je moj ten, pa se ne more primerjati z mojim korektorjem od MAC-a. Prav tako sem opazila, da se čez čas nabira v gubicah pod očmi. Korektor sem uporabila tri krat in zdi se mi, da kar izginja. Za korektor sem plačala 9€ in izdelka sigurno ne bom več nikoli kupila.

IMG_6381

I heard a lot of good things about this product. A lot of bloggers praised this concealer and because I have dark under eyes circles I had to try it. I ordered it online and I couldn’t wait to try it. Sadly I don’t love it. First let’s start with the packaging. Although the idea may be good the performance isn’t. To get enough product out you have to twist the packaging for quite some time. Finally when the product gets to the applicator, which is really not hygienic, I can’t swipe it under my eyes, because I remove my foundation that I always apply first. I dab the applicator under my eyes instead but the sponge on it is really stiff so I think I do more damage than benefit to my thin and delicate skin. The concealer does partially cover my dark under eye circles and it also lightens the area under my eyes, because I choose one shade lighter than my skin tone, but it can’t even compare to my MAC concealer. I also noticed that it does crease in my wrinkles under my eyes. I used the concealer three times and it looks like it’s vanishing. I paid 9€ and I would not repurchase it.

3. Melvita Arganov oljni gel za prhanje

Čeprav sem nad kremo za roke in kremnim oljem za telo iz iste linije popolnoma navdušena, pa me je ta izdelek razočaral. Konsistenca tega gela ni olje, kot tudi ni tipičen gel, ampak je podobno želeju. Gel vsebuje naravne penilce, zato se tudi le malenkost speni. Jaz imam rada, če gel za tuširanje proizvede bogato peno. Gel bi naj tudi navlažil kožo, ampak pri meni je učinek ravno nasproten. Kožo mi izsuši. Resda imam kožo pozimi izredno občutljivo, ampak od tega gela sem vseeno pričakovala več. Na koži ne pušča filma in kožo verjetno dobro umije, ampak ravno zaradi tega, ker se slabo peni, je občutek na koži čuden. Vonj je nežen, diši najverjetneje kot argan, kar ne morem potrdit, saj ne vem kako argan diši. 🙂 Meni tale gel za prhanje ni všeč in sigurno ga več ne bom kupila. Cena je 16,30€ kar je več kot preveč za, po mojem mnenju, slab izdelek.

IMG_6384

Although I love the hand cream and body oil in cream from the same line I don’t like this product. The consistency of this gel is not oil as it’s not a typical gel but it’s more like a jelly. The gel contains natural foaming agents so it only foams slightly. I love when shower gels produce a rich foam. It is supposed to be moisturizing but with me the effect was opposite. It dried out my skin. My skin is really sensitive in the winter but I expected more from this gel. It does not leave a film on the skin and it probably does clean the skin well, but because it foams poorly the feeling on my skin is weird. The scent is gentle, probably like argan, which I can’t confirm, because I have no idea how argan smells. 🙂 I don’t like this shower gel and I won’t repurchase it. The price is 16,30€ which is too much for, in my opinion, bad product.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 🙂

Moji najljubši izdelki leta 2015 #1

IMG_6150Moje najljubše izdelke bom razdelila v dve skupini in sicer v eni skupini bodo samo ličila in produkti, ki se uporabljajo ob ličenju, v drugi skupini pa bodo negovalni izdelki, izdelki za lase in ostalo. Danes bomo kar začeli z izdelki za nego telesa, las, ipd.

I am going to split my favorite products into two groups. The first group are going to be the body and face care products, hair products and such. The second group will include make-up and make-up related products.

1. MELVITA – PENEČI ČISTILNI ŽELE / GENTLE CLEANSING JELLY

Žele sem kupila v začetku prejšnjega leta in hitro je postal moj priljubljeni izdelek za odstranjevanje ličil. Nikoli nisem marala odstranjevanja ličil v več korakih. Pri meni pride v poštev le eden, izjemoma dva. Zmočim obraz, vsebino pritisnem 3X iz pumpice v dlan in umijem obraz. Žele brezhibno odstrani ves make-up z mojega obraza: tekoči puder, maskaro (seveda ne vodoodporne, kar je razumljivo, saj ni v ta namen), tudi temna senčila, črtalo in še kaj. Kljub temu, da učinkovito opravi svoje poslanstvo odstranjevanja, je zelo nežen in mi kože nič ne izsuši, prav tako ne pušča filma na koži po uporabi. Vonj je zelo nežen in nevsiljiv. Ta je že drugi, katerega sem kupila in zaenkrat ne razmišljam o menjavi.IMG_6132I bought this jelly in the beginning of last year and it quickly became my favorite product for removing make-up. I never liked removing my make-up in several steps. One step cleanse is enough for me. I usually wet my face, place 3 pumps of the jelly in my hands and wash my face. This jelly removes all of the make-up from my face, the foundation, mascara (not waterproof mascaras, of course, since it is not meant for such purpose), dark eyeshadows, liner and whatever I have on. It’s very gentle and it does not dry out my skin, it also does not leave any kind of film on my skin. The smell is very gentle. I already bought a new one and for the moment I am not thinking about replacing it.

2. PAUL MITCHELL – EXTRA BODY DAILY BOOST

Ta sprej za volumen las sem kupila približno 2-3 mesece nazaj in nisem imela velikih pričakovanj. Na moje pozitivno presenečenje se je izkazal za zelo učinkovitega. Imam težke, ravne lase, izredno goste in tanke. Sprej uporabim tako, da po umivanju lase, posušene v brisači, razčešem in sprej pršim čim bližje lasišču, po predelih od levega temena pa vse do desnega. Potem lase posušim in voila. Volumen je tu. 😀 Sprej se med sušenjem nekoliko čuti pod prsti, ni tak, kot da ga ne bi bilo 🙂 , ampak ni sploh moteče. Volumen ostane do naslednjega pranja. Pri tovrstnih izdelkih je bistvenega pomena to, da odkrijemo ravno pravo mero doziranja, saj je kaj kmalu lahko izdelka preveč in posledično ne dosežemo želenega učinka, ob tem seveda takoj sklenemo, da je izdelek slab, pa ni temu vedno tako. Se mi zdi, da pri izdelkih za volumen las velja pravilo ”manj je več”. Vsekakor je smotrno začeti z manjšo količino in v kolikor niste dobile želenega rezultata, nadaljevati z večanjem. V kolikor tudi z večjo količino izdelka ne boste zadovoljne, potem lahko nekako sklenete, da proizvod ni za vas. Se zna zgoditi, da kakšnemu dobremu izdelku zaradi neustrezne uporabe naredimo krivico in neupravičeno gre mimo nas.IMG_6120I bought this one a few months ago and I didn’t have high expectations but it proved me wrong. I have straight, heavy, extremely dense but thin hair. I use the spray on my towel dry and brushed hair, I spray it close to the scalp in segments from my left and all the way to the right. Next I dry my hair and voila. Volume is here. You can feel the residue under the fingers, it’s not like I have nothing in my hair, but it does not bother me at all. The volume remains until the next wash. It is crucial that we find precisely the right amount of dosage, because very soon it is too much product on our hair. Therefore the desired effect is not achieved. On the basis of this we instantly conclude that the product is bad, but this is not always the case. I believe hair volumizing products subject to the rule ‘less is more’. Anyhow, it’s reasonable to start with a smaller amount of product, and if you are not getting the wanted results, then continue increasing amount. If you won’t be satisfied even with a larger quantity of the product, then you can conclude that the product obviously is not for you. I just want to say that sometimes we can do injustice with our improper/wrong use to some very good products and those products mistakenly pass us.

3. MELVITA – ARGANOVO KREMNO OLJE / L’ARGAN BIO BODY OIL IN CREAM

Nikoli nisem dosledna pri uporabljanju losjona, masla ali kreme za telo. Če pa sem že pri volji, pa uporabim tole kremno olje in nobenega drugega. Krema je srednje gosta, lepo razmazljiva in se hitro vpije. Ne pušča mastnega filma na koži in čeprav vsebuje olje za seboj pusti prijetno nahranjeno in navlaženo kožo. Rada ga uporabljam tako poleti kot pozimi, ko imam izredno suho kožo. Je toplega, kanček sladkega vonja. Mogoče celo diši po arganu, ampak ne vem, kako v resnici diši argan, tako da težko primerjam. 😀 Vonj se obdrži na koži nekaj ur.IMG_6107I am never consistent, when it comes to applying lotion or body butters, oils. Honestly I’m too lazy to do it but if I do apply anything I use this creamy oil and nothing else. It’s creamy, not that thick though, it applies nicely and absorbs fast. It does not leave a greasy film on the skin, although it’s oil based, it leaves just a nourished and moist skin. I like to use it in the summer and especially the winter time when my skin is particularly dry. It has a warm, slightly sweet scent. It probably smells like argan, but I have no idea how argan smells so I can’t really compare it. The scent stays on the skin for a couple of hours.

4. THE BODY SHOP – TEA TREE PORE MINIMISER

Naj takoj omenim, da ne verjamem, da lahko katerakoli krema pomanjša moje pore. Moje pore so namreč gromozanske. Ker pa krema obljublja matiranje, hkrati pa bi naj služila kot baza/podlaga za tekoči puder, sem se odločila, da jo preizkusim. In ni mi žal. Po konsistenci se krema giblje med gelom in kremo, ima močan vonj po tea tree (tj. čajevcu), ampak se hitro razdiši. Najbolj všeč mi je občutek, ki ga pusti na koži. Krema se takoj vpije in pusti za sabo mehko, gladko, mat kožo, ki je pripravljena za nanos tekočega pudra. Ne bi mogla trditi, da podaljša obstoj tekočega pudra, je pa nanos pudra zaradi te kreme vsekakor prijetnejši. Jaz sem kupila že drugo tubo in je zaenkrat ne menjam.IMG_6129Let me start by saying this: I don’t believe that any cream can reduce my pores, because my pores are huge. Since the cream promises mattifying effect and at the same time it would function as a base/primer for foundation, I decided to give it a try. I don’t regret it. The cream consistency varies between a gel and cream with strong smell of tea tree, but it does not stay for long. I love the feeling it leaves on the skin. The cream absorbs quickly, leaving the skin soft, matte and prepared for foundation. I wouldn’t say that it helps prolong the existence of the foundation, but application is definitely nicer. I already bought my second tube and I don’t plan on changing it.

5. KNEIPP – KRISTALI ZA KOPANJE / BATHING CRYSTALS/SALT

Kneipp mi je vedno bil všeč, še posebej geli za tuširanje, olja za kopanje, kreme za roke, itd. V letu 2015 pa sem našla še en produkt, ki mi je ukradel srce in brez katerega si skorajda življenja več ne predstavljam. 🙂 To so Kneipp kristali za kopanje. Izbiramo lahko med ogromno vonji, kopeli so lepo obarvane, torej tudi voda. Te kopeli sicer niso hranilne ali vlažilne, pomembno pa je, da kože kljub temu ne izsušijo. Vendar pa je seveda uporaba losjona ali masla za telo skoraj obvezna, če imate suho kožo. Kopeli zelo lepo dišijo, vonj je dovolj močan, da zajame kopalnico, ampak ne premočan. Na koži se vonj ne obdrži dolgo, mogoče kakšnih 10 minut po kopeli. Kopeli najdete v Műllerju za 1,20€. Zame so dovolj poceni, da jih lahko uporabim večkrat na teden. Vedno rada poizkusim kakšno novo, ampak izmed vseh meni najljubša je kopel z vonjem vanilije, makadamije in medu. IMG_6138I always liked Kneipp, especially their shower gels, bathing oils, hand creams and so on. In the year 2015 I found another product that stole my heart. Without it I almost can’t imagine my life. 🙂 This mighty product is named Kneipp bathing crystals/salt. We can choose among numerous scents, the crystals are nicely colored and so is the water in the end. These baths are not moisturizing but also they do not dry out my skin. But if you have dry or very dry skin, the use of body lotion or butter is almost obligatory. The baths smell really nice and the smell is strong enough to fill the bathroom. Smells don’t stay on the skin long, maybe 10 minutes after the bath. Baths are low-priced, around 1,20€ in Muller, so I can use them several times a week. I always like to try a new one but my all-time favorite is the bath with the vanilla, macadamia and honey scent.

6. L’OCCITANE – IZBOLJŠEVALNA MEGLICA ZA OBRAZ POPOLNA POTONIKA / PEONY PERFECTING MIST

Tale sprej sem si kupila z namenom, da ga bom uporabljala za osvežitev make-upa in pa za samostojno negovalno osvežitev kože. Izredno mi je všeč. Uporabljam ga pogosto, porabi se ga izredno malo, saj je ”šprica” res dobra in izredno enakomerno razprši proizvod. Meglico največkrat uporabim po koncu ličenja, da »utrdim« ličila oziroma včasih tudi zato, da zakrijem pudrast videz. Ponavadi ga tudi uporabim, ko po parih urah spet napudram T območje, ki se mi masti in tako koža spet dobi svež izgled. Vonj je cvetličen, a nežen, jaz ga po par minutah več ne zaznam.IMG_6108I bought this spray mostly with the intention that it will be used to refresh my make-up or to refresh my skin. I really love it. I use it often, the usage is minimal because the spray diffuses the product nicely and evenly. I usually use the mist when I finish my make-up to set it and to hide the powdery look. I also use it when I touch up my T zone with a powder after a few hours to refresh the skin. The scent is flowery but subtle, I don’t smell it after a few minutes.

7. THE BODY SHOP – DROPS OF YOUTH BOUNCY SLEEPING MASK

Huh…kje naj začnem? 🙂 Masko sem kupila poleti, ko je ravnokar prišla na police. Radovedno sem brala ocene in gledala videe o njej. Potrebovala sem namreč produkt, ki mi bi konkretno navlažil in nahranil kožo. In baje bi naj ravno to bila naloge te maske. Obljublja bolj navlaženo in prožno kožo. In res je. Maska je bele barve, zelo gosta, kot žele, tako da se prst dejansko »odbije« od nje. Je zelo nežnega vonja, ga skoraj ne zaznam. Z majhno priloženo lopatico zajamem produkt, ga segrejem in razmažem med dlanmi, nakar se maska spremeni v olje. Nanesem na obraz, počakam 15 minut, preden grem spat in to je to. Maska se sicer kanček čuti na obrazu, ne vpije se popolnoma, ampak se ne prenaša na posteljnino, kar je zame ključnega pomena. Zjutraj obraz umijem z vodo in koža je prav sijoča, navlažena, zdrava. Jaz jo uporabljam enkrat tedensko, čeprav mislim, da bi jo lahko tudi bolj pogosto, a rada menjam maske za obraz.IMG_6125Where do I begin? 🙂 I bought this mask in the summer when it just hit the shelves. I curiously read reviews and watched videos about it. I needed something to moisturize and nourish the skin. And apparently this is exactly the mission of the mask. It is supposed to make the skin more flexible and moisturized. And it does. The mask is white, it’s somehow jelly-like, so your finger actually bounces off. It’s slightly scented, so I can barely smell it. With a small spatula that comes with the mask I take a little bit and put it in my hands, warm it up and spread it in my palms so the mask changes into an oil. I apply that to my face, wait 15 minutes before I go to sleep and that’s it. You can feel the mask on the skin, it doesn’t absorb all of it, but it is not transmitted to the bedding, which is very important for me. In the morning I wash my face with water and the skin is shiny, moisturized and healthy. I use it once a week although I think you could use it more often.

8. NUXE – BAUME LEVRES

Tale balzam za ustnice uporabljam že par let in sem skoraj prepričana, da bo vedno moj najljubši. Balzam je v lončku, je zelo gost, rumene barve, z vonjem po citrusih in medu. Kaj veliko o tem balzamu za ustnice ne bom pisala, saj sem porabila vsaj 6 lončkov in je pri meni stalnica. Ker je v lončku, ga najraje hranim ob postelji, v zimskih časih pa kar na kavni mizici v dnevni, saj ga zaradi pacanja s prsti ne nosim s seboj, če nimam huje poškodovanih in razpokanih ustnic. Edino tale balzam uspešno rešuje moje ustnice pozimi, ki so izredno občutljive na mraz. Jaz ga bom vedno in vsem priporočala, ker je zame najboljši in najbolj učinkovit balzam za ustnice sploh.IMG_6088I’ve been using this lip balm for years and I can certainly say it will always be my favorite. The balm comes in a pot, it’s really thick, yellow and with a citrusy honey scent. I won’t talk about this lip balm a lot, because I used at least 6 jars and it’s a constant for me. Because it’s in a pot I like to keep it by my bed, in the winter time on my coffee table in the living room, because I don’t take it with me, unless my lips are seriously cracked and dry. This is the only lip balm that successfully saves my lips which are extremely sensitive to cold in the winter. I will always recommend it to everyone, because for me it is the best and the most effective lip balm ever.

9. MELVITA – ARGANOVA KREMA ZA ŽAMETNE ROKE / L’ARGAN BIO VELVET HAND CREAM

Tale krema za roke je iz iste linije kot kremno olje, zato me sploh ne preseneča, da mi je všeč. Najraje imam kreme, ki se hitro vpijejo in ne puščajo mastnega filma, zato je ta krema vedno med prvimi pri meni. Vonj je enak kot pri kremnem olju, torej topel oziroma verjetno po arganu. 🙂 Krema je bele barve, srednje gostote, se hitro vpije in dobro vlaži. Je v majhni 75ml tubi, tako da je priročna za v torbico, bi pa bila vesela tudi kake večje (100-150ml) tube za doma.IMG_6115This hand cream is from the same line as the creamy oil so I am not at all surprised I like it. I like creams that absorb quickly and are not greasy, so that is why I always reach for this one. The scent is the same as the creamy oil, warm and it probably smells like argan. 🙂 The cream is white, medium thick, it absorbs quickly into the skin and moisturizes really good. It comes in a small 75ml tube so it’s convenient to carry it with me in a bag. It would be great if the cream would also be available in larger package (100-150ml).

10. BATISTE – SUHI ŠAMPON / DRY SHAMPOO

Odkar sem izvedela za obstoj suhega šampona, je to izdelek, ki ga imam vedno pri roki. O njem sem poslušala zelo dolgo od blogerk iz tujine, ampak se nikoli nisem odločila za nakup, dokler nisem enkrat slučajno naletela nanj v Douglasu v Avstriji. Seveda sem ga takoj kupila in sedaj vem, zakaj so vse tako navdušene. Ker imam temne lase sem kupila šampon za temno rjave lase. Ta diši po čokoladi (?) in je obarvan, tako da se na laseh ne opazi, če ga nanesem obilneje. Šampon dobro deluje, učinkovito vpije maščobo in doda še malo volumna. Dobra lastnost Batiste linije suhih šamponov je tudi ta, da lahko izbiramo med različnimi vonji in tudi barvami (za svetlo rjave lase, za temno rjave lase in tudi za svetle oziroma blond lase). Cena je okrog 5-6€.IMG_6099Ever since I heard about the existence of dry shampoo, I always have one at hand. I caught a lot of great infos about Batiste from beauty bloggers abroad, but I never decided to buy one until I »bumped« into it in Douglas store in Austria. Of course I immediately bought it and now I know why the enthusiasm. Because I have dark hair I bought the one for deep brown hair. It smells like chocolate (?) and it’s colored, so even if I apply too much it’s not visible on the hair. The dry shampoo works really well, efficiently absorbs the grease and gives the hair a bit of volume. The great thing about Batiste dry shampoo line is also that you can choose from a variety of scents and colors (for light brown hair, dark brown hair and even light or blonde hair). The price is around 5-6€.
