Kako čistim čopiče + GIVEAWAY

img_8824

Velikokrat me sprašujejo kako čistim svoje čopiče za ličenje, zato sem se odločila na to temo napisati kar eno krajšo objavo. Kratko tudi zaradi tega, ker čiščenje čopičev ni nič posebnega ali zahtevnega. 🙂 Za lažje razumevanje pa sem posnela tudi kratek video v katerem lahko vidite kako jih sama čistim.

Often I’m asked how I clean my make-up brushes and that’s why I decided to write a short post about it. Short because there’s nothing special or complicated about cleaning brushes. 🙂 For better understanding I also made a short video that shows you how I clean them.

S čim čistim čopiče? Če je nekaj dobro za odstranjevanje ličil z mojega obraza, potem je tudi dobro za čiščenje mojih čopičev. Tako za čiščenje čopičev v veliki večini uporabljam Nuxe Reve de Miel gel za umivanje obraza, ki je nežen do mojih čopičev in jih dobro očisti. Ne dolgo nazaj pa sem se odločila poskusiti še z milom za čiščenje čopičev Barbara Hofmann, ki sem ga kupila v Mullerju in zanj odštela okoli 10€. Pred tem sem za čiščenje čopičev prav tako uporabljala katerokoli navadno trdo milo, gledala sem le, da je bilo za občutljivo kožo in neodišavljeno.

What do I use to clean my brushes? If something is good to clean the make-up from my face then it’s also good enough to clean my brushes. So for cleaning my brushes I mostly use my Nuxe Reve de Miel facial cleansing gel which is gentle to my brushes and also cleans them well. Not so long ago I decided to try a brush cleaning soap from Barbara Hofmann that I bought in Muller and paid around 10€. Before that I also used any regular solid soap that was for sensitive skin and fragrance free.

Za samo čiščenje čopičev sem prej uporabljala dlan, ampak ker se je število čopičev povečalo, moje dlani pa so kar občutljive, sem se odločila kupiti podlage za čiščenje. Eno je v obliki jajčka, ki se natakne na prste in ima precej bolj globoke brazde, drugo pa je malenkost večje, se lahko prisesa na umivalnik ali drži med prsti in ima bolj nežne brazde. Prvo zato uporabljam za čopiče za obraz, drugo pa za manjše čopiče.

I used to use my palm for cleaning the brushes but because the number of my brushes has increased and my hands are quite sensitive I decided to buy a widget for cleaning. One is shaped as an egg that I put on my fingers and has deeper creases, the other one is a bit larger and can be suctioned to the sink or you can hold it between your fingers and has more delicate creases. That’s why I use the first one for face brushes and the other one for smaller brushes.

Kadar umivam čopiče za obraz s katerimi uporabljam kremne oziroma tekoče izdelke uporabim vročo vodo iz pipe, saj gre tako hitreje. Sem pa pri tem toliko bolj pazljiva da vroča voda ne pride do lepila, ki drži ščetine skupaj, saj bi se stopilo in s tem bi tudi uničila čopič. Na koncu, ko je čopič čisti uporabim mlačno vodo in takrat ga obrnem navpično in previdno izperem milo med ščetinami. Kot vidite na posnetku sem s čopičem, ki ima sintetične ščetine (1. čopič) bolj “groba”, s tistimi z naravnimi oziroma mešanimi ščetinami (2. in 3. čopič) pa malo bolj previdna. Čopič milim dokler pena ni čista in na koncu ga vedno dobro umijem ter sem pozorna da se več nikjer ne peni.

When I’m cleaning face brushes that I use with cream or liquid products I use hot tap water because it’s faster this way. I’m a bit more careful when doing that so that the hot water doesn’t melt the adhesive that holds the bristles together because I would ruin the brush that way. In the end, when the brush is clean, I use lukewarm water and turn the brush vertically and gently wash the soap between the bristles. As you can see in the video I’m more “rough” with the brush with synthetic bristles (1. brush) and more careful with the brush with natural or mixed bristles (2. and 3. brush). I put soap on the brush until the foam isn’t clean and in the end I always clean it well and I’m careful that it’s not foaming anywhere.

Ko čopič operem ga tudi podrgnem po čisti brisači, da odstranim čim več vode iz njega. Ko vse čopiče očistim jih položim vodoravno na čisto brisačo in sama jih ponavadi položim na pralni stroj tako, da se ščetine ne dotikajo brisače in se tako tudi prej posušijo. Pustim jih čez noč in drugi dan so čopiči ponavadi suhi in pripravljeni na uporabo. Nikoli čopičev ne puščajte navpično postavljenih s ščetinami obrnjenimi navzgor. Če imate možnost ali imate stojalo za sušenje čopičev, jih vedno obrnite s ščetinami navdzol, da voda odteka iz čopiča.

When I wash the brush I also rub it on a clean towel to remove as much water from it. When I clean all the brushes I place them horizontally on a clean towel and I usually put them on a washing machine so that the bristles don’t touch the towel and they dry much faster. I let them dry overnight and the next day they are usually ready to use. Never leave the brushes vertically positioned with the bristles facing upwards. If you have the option or you have a rack for drying brushes, always position them with bristles facing downwards so the water drips from the brush.

To bi bilo vse kar se tiče čiščenja čopičev. Enostavno kajne? 🙂 Sama čistim čopiče za nanašanje tekočega pudra bolj pogosto (najmanj enkrat na mesec), ostale pa po potrebi. Ker bi rada, da tudi vi skrbite za svoje čopiče sem vam pripravila majhno NAGRADNO IGRO.

That would be all as far as cleaning the brushes go. Easy right? 🙂 I clean my brushes for applying foundation more often (at least once a month) and the others when necessary. Because I want you to take care of your brushes I prepared a small GIVEAWAY.

Lush: Big Shampoo

IMG_8050

Ker od Lusha še nisem nikoli poskusila ničesar za lase in ker sem prebrala v glavnem dobre stvari o tem šamponu, sem se odločila, da ga poskusim. Prav tako naj omenim že sedaj, da šampona nisem nabavila, ker bi si želela večjega volumna, ampak ker sem imela grozne težave s prhljajem zadnje leto in pol.

Because I’ve never tried anything for hair from Lush and because I read mostly good things about this shampoo I decided to try it out. Also I should mention that I didn’t get the shampoo because I wanted more volume but because I was having terrible problems with dandruff for the last year and a half.

Lush trdi, da je bil ta šampon ustvarjen za čudovit volumen in lesk. Šampon vsebuje veliko grobe morske soli, morske alge in kokos za mehkobo las ter sveže limone in limete za lesk. Moja prva misel pa je bila ta, da morska voda oziroma morska sol ne more škoditi pa še piling lasišča lahko naredim. Prav tako pa limona in limeta pomagata pri boju s prhljajem.

Lush claims that this shampoo was made for volume and shine. The shampoo contains a lot of coarse sea salt, seaweed and coconut for hair softness and fresh lemon and lime for shine. My first thought was that sea water or sea salt can’t be harmful and I can exfoliate my scalp as well. Also lemon and lime are good in fighting dandruff.

IMG_8051

Šampon je pakiran v Lushevem velikem črnem lončku. Šampon je belkaste barve in precej gost zaradi soli. Vonj je precej nežen, svež, rahlo sladek z dodatki citrusov. Meni izredno lepo diši in me spominja na morje. Najbolj me je skrbelo, če se bo šampon spenil, ker sama ne maram šamponov, ki se ne penijo. Na moje začudenje se šampon izredno lepo speni. Sama zajamem količino polovice oreha in jo vmasiram v lasišče. Ker ne uporabljam izdelkov za oblikovanje las šamponiram samo lasišče. Sol poskušam čim bolje vmasirati, čeprav nekaj soli pade z las med umivanjem.

The shampoo is packed in a big, black Lush pot. The shampoo is white-ish and pretty thick because of the salt. The scent is pretty gentle, fresh, slightly sweet with a hint of citrus. I really like the smell and it reminds me of the sea. My biggest concern was if the shampoo is going to lather because I don’t like shampoos that don’t lather. To my amazement the shampoo lathers really nicely. I take about half a walnut of the shampoo and massage it into my scalp. Because I don’t use any hair styling products I shampoo only the scalp. I try to massage the salt as good as I can into my scalp although some of the salt does fall off the hair while washing it.

Všeč mi je tisti škripajoč občutek čistosti, ki mi ga šampon nudi, kljub temu pa mi lasišča in las ne izsuši. Izpere se brez težav. Najbolj sem bila presenečena nad tem, da sem že po prvem umivanju imela precej manj prhljaja, sedaj po dveh mesecih uporabe, pa sem se ga rešila dokončno. Lasišče je zdravo, lasje sijoči. Kar se tiče volumna, se v to nisem kaj veliko spuščala, saj imam sama izredno goste in težke lase, tako da mi razen Paul Mitchell Extra Daily Body Boost spreja (kratka ocena tukaj) nič ne pomaga pri tem. Lahko si pa predstavljam, da puncam z veliko “lažjimi” lasmi, doda tudi nekaj volumna.

I like the squeaky clean feeling the shampoo gives me but it doesn’t dry out my scalp or hair though. It washes out without a problem. I was mostly surprised by the fact that already after the first wash I had significantly less dandruff and now after two months of using it I got rid off it finally. The scalp is healthy the hair is shiny. As for the volume I didn’t go into that because I have really thick and heavy hair so nothing but Paul Mitchell’s Extra Daily Body Boost spray (short review here) helps with that. However, I can image that if you have “lighter” hair it does probably add some volume.

Za šampon boste v Lushu odštele 18,95€ za 330g, kar bo meni dovolj za pol leta ali še več, saj lase umivam le dvakrat tedensko. Šampon priporočam tudi, če nimate prhljaja in imate radi zdrav lesk ter popoln občutek čistosti lasišča. Ste že poskusili kakšen šampon ali balzam od Lusha? Kaj še priporočate?

You will pay 18,95€ for 330g in Lush that I’ll have enough for half a year or even more because I wash my hair only twice a week. I also recommend the shampoo if you don’t have dandruff and you like a healthy shine and a complete feeling of a clean scalp. Did you try a shampoo or conditioner from Lush? What do you recommend?

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte. 😉
