ABH: Pro Series Powder Contour Banana in Vanilla

ABHCollage

Anastasia Beverly Hills mi je bila vedno zanimiva in vsakič, ko sem gledala punce kako so uporabljale njene palete za konturiranje, sem si želela, da bi si jo tudi jaz lahko kupila. Čez čas me je minil nakup palete, še vedno pa sem si želela dober banana puder v kamnu ali prahu za fiksiranje korektorja. Na mojo srečo je, po neuspešnem iskanju, Beauty Bay dobil posamezne pudre v kamnu za ponovno polnitev palet.

I was always interested in Anastasia Beverly Hills and every time I watched girls use her contour palette I always wished I could buy it as well. After a while I lost interest in the palette but I still wanted a good banana powder, compact or loose, for setting my concealer. Luckily for me after an unsuccessful search, Beauty Bay got the individual refill powders for the palettes.

IMG_8130

Odločila sem se kupiti kar dve barvi, saj me je skrbelo, da bi bila Banana preveč rumena zame, ki imam precej bolj nevtralno hladen podton. Tako sem poleg Banane kupila še Vanilijo. Ker so to posamezni pudri, ki so za ponovno polnitev palete, nimajo svoje embalaže, ampak so pakirani le v kartonasti škatlici in potrebujete paleto v katero jih boste shranili. Sama ju hranim v Z paleti, ki je super priročna.

I decided to buy two shades because I was worried that Banana would be too yellow for me because I have a more neutral cool undertone. So in addition to Banana I bought Vanilla as well. Because these are individual refill powders they come just in a pan packaged in a cardboard box and you need a palette to store them in. I store them in a Z palette which is super convenient.

Levo/Left: Vanilla, Desno/Right: Banana

Prvi šok, ki sem ga doživela, je bila velikost samih pudrov. Pri naročanju namreč nisem bila pozorna na težo produkta, tako da sem pričakovala standardnih 5-6g. Dobila sem seveda veliko manj in sicer 3g. Še dobro, da pudra uporabljam samo pod očmi, saj ju tako ne porabim veliko.

The first shock that I experienced was the size of the powders. While ordering them I wasn’t paying attention to the weight of the product so I expected a standard 5-6g. I of course got a lot less, namely 3g. It’s good that I only use the powder under my eyes so I don’t use a lot.

ABHCollage2

Levo/Left: Samo puder in korektor. / Just foundation and concealer.                           Desno/Right: Pod levim očesom Banana, pod desnim očesom Vanilla. / Under the left eye Banana, under the right eye Vanilla.

Banana je svetlo rumen mat puder, Vanilla pa svetlo krem, delno mat. Oba pudra sta ravno prav mehka, da se lepo oprimeta ščetin na čopiču. Pudra sta prav tako precej pigmentirana, Banana bolj kot Vanilla, tako da dodatno prekrijeta moje temne podočnjake. Ker se mi je Banana zdel prerumen sem ju začela mešati in tako dobila perfektni odtenek. Pudra dobro fiksirata moj korektor in tudi predel pod očmi lepo osvetlita.

Banana is a pale matte yellow, Vanilla is a pale demi matte cream. Both of the powders are soft enough so they stick to the brush bristles. The powders are quite pigmented as well, Banana more than Vanilla so they additionally cover my dark under eye circles. Because I thought that Banana was too yellow I started mixing them together and that’s how I got the perfect shade. The powders set my concealer really well and also brighten the under eye area.

IMG_8127

Končni izgled, pomešana pudra / Finished look, mixed powders.

Za 3g produkta sem na Beauty Bayu odštela 16,50€ kar se mi zdi veliko za sicer dober puder. Velik plus je, da je izbor odtenkov širok, tako da lahko vsaka najde nekaj zase in si načeloma kupi le enega, namesto cele palete. Jaz ju bom z veseljem porabila, nisem pa prepričana, da ju bom spet kupila. Bolj me mika Laura Mercier Brightening powder za predel pod očmi. Kaj vi uporabljate za fiksiranje korektorja? Priporočate kaj?

I paid 16,50€ on Beauty Bay for 3g of product and I find that to be too much for a powder that is good. The big plus is that there is a wide selection of shades so everyone can find something for themselves and generally buy only one instead of the whole palette. I will happily use them but I’m not sure I’ll buy them again. I’m more temped by the Laura Mercier Brightening powder for the under eye area. What do you use for setting you concealer? Do you recommend anything?

H&M: Powder Puff lipstick

IMG_8069

H&M kozmetika me vedno pritegne in ker me zadnje čase vedno bolj mikajo šminke sem se odločila tudi poskusit eno. Čeprav mi je večina barv všeč, pa sem izbrala tako, ki jo bom največ tudi uporabljala.

H&M cosmetics always attracts me and because lately I’ve been into lipsticks I decided to try one out. Although I like most of the colors I chose the one that I’ll use the most.

IMG_8071

Embalaža mi je zelo lepa, krem in zlata (z zlato v mojem mnenju ne morejo zgrešit), izgleda izredno šik. Šminka ima navoj, ki dobro deluje, pokrov je na klik. Sama šminka je pakirana še v kartonasto škatlico. Vonja skorajda nima, le narahlo voham vanilijo. Prav tako nima okusa. Sama sem izbrala odtenek Powder Puff, ki je nevtralno zaprašeno rožnata barva.

The package is really nice, cream and gold (you can’t go wrong with gold in my opinion) and it looks really chic. The lipstick has a twist up system that works great and the lid is a click on. The lipstick itself is packaged in a cardboard box. It’s almost scentless, I slightly smell vanilla. It also has no flavor. I chose the shade Powder Puff which is a neutral dusty pink color.

IMG_8073

Šminka je kremaste teksture, ni mat, a je kljub temu relativno dobro obstojna. Prav tako z enim nanosom prekrije moje ustnice. Šminka je lepo mazljiva, se ne razliva v gubice. Sama jo najraje kombiniram z Essence Longlasting barvico za ustnice v odtenku 05 Lovely Frappuccino in tako je šminka še bolj obstojna. Seveda jo je potrebno po kakšni uri, uri pa pol ponovno nanesti, še posebej če boste jedle ali pile. Ustnic mi ne izsuši, prav tako jih ne navlaži.

The lipstick has a creamy texture, it’s not matte but it’s still relatively long wearing. One swipe covers my lips. The lipstick is nicely malleable and doesn’t bleed into lines. I like to combine it with the Essence Longlasting lipliner in the shade 05 Lovely Frappuccino and that makes the lipstick even more long wearing. Of course you’ll have to reapply after about an hour, hour and a half, especially if you eat or drink. It doesn’t dry out my lips nor does it moisturize them.

hm4Collage

Meni so H&M šminke res super, vendar pa je cena po mojem mnenju za te šminke kar visoka. Za H&M bi pričakovala nižjo ceno, kljub kvaliteti, saj sem za šminko odštela 10€. Nagledanih imam še par nevtralnih odtenkov a glede nakupa se še nisem odločila, izključno zaradi cene. H&M kozmetične izdelke lahko kupite v njihovi spletni trgovini ali v Cityparku v Ljubljani. Imati vi kakšen H&M izdelek, ki ga moram poskusiti? Kakšen glos, barvico za ustnice ali kaj drugega?

I really like the H&M lipsticks but the price is quite high in my opinion. I would expect a lower price for H&M despite the quality because I paid 10€ for the lipstick. I have a few other neutral shades on my wishlist but I still haven’t decided if I’ll buy them solely because of the price. You can buy the H&M cosmetics on the website or in Citypark in Ljubljana. Do you have any H&M product that I have to try? A gloss, lipliner or something else maybe?

Gehwol: Softening Balsam za stopala in noge

IMG_7730

Kot sem že omenila v prejšnji objavi, se ta teden posvečamo nogam, bolj natančno stopalom. Tako sem tudi že najavila, da bom ocenjevala tale balzam za noge in stopala. Gehwol sicer še nisem uporabljala, to je moj prvi produkt od njih in še tega mi je sestra podarila. 😉

As I mentioned in my previous post, I’m devoting this week to legs, more precisely to feet. I also already announced that I would be reviewing this balsam for legs and feet. I haven’t used Gehwol yet, this is my first product from them and this was gifted to me by my sister. 😉

IMG_7732

Embalaža je tuba s pokrovom na poklop, ki je mat bele barve, z modrim in rdečim napisom ter sliko. Tuba je zapakirana še v škatlo. Embalaža funkcionira dobro, tudi dozira se enostavno. Sama krema, balzam, je bele barve in je zelo dobro mazljiva. Jaz ponavadi nanesem količino enega fižola za eno stopalo. Je nežnega, skoraj nezaznavnega vonja, kar me ne moti, saj so stopala tako ali tako predaleč, da bi jih vohala. 😀 Za sabo pusti mehko in navlaženo, negovano kožo, kar potrjujejo tudi sestavine, saj sta sečnina (urea) ter avokadovo olje na drugem in tretjem mestu. Balzam prav tako vsebuje aktivne sestavine iz mleka in medu, ki kožo negujejo.

The packaging is a tube with a click on lid, which is a matte white color with blue and red lettering and a picture. The tube is packaged in a box as well. The packaging functions well, the dosing is easy. The cream, balm, itself is white and is very malleable. I usually apply a dose of a bean on each foot. It has a subtle, almost imperceptible scent, which doesn’t bother me, since the feet are way too far for me to smell them. 😀 It leaves behind a soft and moisturized, nourished skin, which is confirmed by the ingredients as well, because urea and avocado oil are on the second and third spot. The balm also contains active ingredients from milk and honey, that nourish the skin.

IMG_7733

Krema se vpija do 10 minut, kar je hitro, vendar pa če se vam mudi, mogoče tudi ne dovolj hitro. Jaz jo najraje nanesem zvečer, ko nimam več planov oziroma pred spanjem. Ker se ne vpije takoj je tudi dobra za masažo stopal, ki si jo lahko naredimo sami ali pa prosimo partnerja, da nam jih zmasira.

The cream takes about 10 minutes to absorb, which is fast, but not fast enough if you’re in a hurry. I like to apply it at night, when I don’t have any more plans or before sleep. It’s great for massaging you feet because it doesn’t absorb immediately, which you can do yourself or ask your partner to massage them.

Meni je krema zelo všeč in jo z veseljem uporabljam. 125ml bo mi zadostovalo za kar nekaj časa, za balzam pa boste odšteli 11,50€. Kupite ga lahko v spletni trgovini Lekarnar.com in verjetno še kje, vendar žal ne vem kje, saj kot sem omenila, sem kremo dobila v dar. Za oceno Lusheve maske za stopala pa kliknite tukaj.

I like the cream very much and I love to use it. 125ml will be enough for quite some time and you will pay 11,50€ for it. You can buy it on the website Lekarnar.com and probably elsewhere as well, but sadly I don’t know where, because as I mentioned already, I got the cream as a gift.

Lush: Imperialis

IMG_7517

Lusheva kozmetika za nego obraza me je vedno mikala, ampak se nikoli nisem odločila za nakup. Potem pa sem se, po raziskovanju njihove spletne strani, odločila, da poskusim Imperialis kot jutranjo/dnevno kremo. Kremo sem izbrala predvsem na dejstvu, da je za mešano kožo.

I was always tempted to try the face care cosmetics from Lush, but I never decided to buy it. Then, after exploring their website, I decided to try Imperialis as a morning/daily moisturizer. I chose the cream primarily because of the fact, that it is for combination skin.

Krema je pakirana v črnem lončku s pokrovom na navoj, kot je tipično za Lush. Lusheva embalaža je praktična in učinkovita. Krema je svetlo bež, skoraj bele barve z dodatkom rožnate in je lahke teksture. Meni osebno diši kot zeleni čaj z limono, čeprav ne vsebuje ne zelenega čaja ne limone. 😀 Čeprav vsebuje sivko pa jo redko zaznam.

The cream is packaged in a black pot with a screw on lid, which is typical for Lush. Lush packaging is practical and effective. The cream is a light beige, almost white color with a hint of rosiness and light texture. To me personally it smells like green tea with lemon, although it doesn’t contain neither the green tea nor the lemon. 😀 Although it contains lavender I can rarely smell it.

IMG_7521

Lush trdi, da je Imperialis sivkina krema za mešano kožo, ki bi naj spravila kožo v ravnovesje. Sivka uravnava izločanje loja, vodica pomarančnih cvetov izboljša pigmentacijo kože, karitejevo maslo in olivno olje pa nahranita pore.

Lush states that Imperialis is a lavender cream for combination skin, which is supposed to restore the skin balance. The lavender regulates sebum secretion, orange flower absolute improves pigmentation of the skin, Shea butter and olive oil nourish the pores.

Krema je, kot sem že omenila, lahke teksture in zaradi tega tudi izredno mazljiva, kar pomeni, da ne porabimo veliko produkta za cel obraz. Hitro se vpije, tako da je primerna tudi za pod ličila. Jaz jo uporabljam zjutraj, takoj ko se umijem, si nanesem še kremo in tako se dan začne. Svež vonj me prebudi, koža pa je navlažena.

The cream is, as I have already mentioned, very light in texture and therefore also very spreadable, which means, that we don’t use a lot of product for the whole face. It absorbs quickly, so it’s also suitable for under the make-up. I use it in the morning, as soon as I wash my face I apply the cream and that’s how the day starts. The fresh scent wakes me up, the skin is moisturized.

IMG_7522

Krema mi je izredno všeč, ima odlične sestavine in tudi draga ni, saj stane 18,45€ za 45g, kar bo dovolj za sigurno vsaj pol leta. Jaz jo bom definitivno še kupila, saj se mi zdi, da jo ima moja koža res rada. Kremo priporočam vsem, ki imate mešano kožo, ostali pa poglejte malo po spletni strani ali pa se napotite v Lushevo trgovino, če imate možnost, saj vam bodo prijazne trgovke svetovale in verjamem, da boste našli nekaj zase.

I really like the cream, it has great ingredients and it’s not expensive, as it costs 18,45€ for 45g, which will be enough for at least half a year. I will definitely buy it again, because I feel, that my skin really loves it. I recommend the cream to everyone who has combination skin, while others can look through the website or go to a Lush store, if you have the chance, because the friendly merchants will advise you and I believe that you will find something for yourself.

The Body Shop: Mandljeva krema in milo za roke

tbs

Ta dva izdelka sem dobila v darilnem setu. Prvi del darilnega paketa sem že opisala tukaj. Drugi del, torej kremo in milo za roke, pa bom sedaj.

I got these two products in a gift set. I reviewed the first part of the gift set here. The second part, the hand wash and the cream, I will review now.

Kremo za roke sem že uporabljala in že od nekdaj mi je všeč. Najprej naj omenim embalažo. Krema je v aluminijasti tubi, ki se zelo rada zmečka in meni ni najbolj všeč, ampak je praktična in uporabna saj, ko je kreme vedno manj, lahko tubo zvijemo.

I already used the hand cream and I always liked it. First let me mention the packaging. The cream is in a aluminum tube that likes to crumple and I don’t like that, but it is practical and useful, because when there’s less and less cream, we can roll up the tube.

IMG_6594

Sama krema je bele barve, zelo dobro mazljiva, ravno prav gosta. Krema diši kot celotna mandljeva linija, po sladkih mandljih oziroma marcipanu. Krema se hitro vpije, ne pušča mastnega občutka, samo nežne roke. Vonj na rokah se obdrži kar nekaj časa, dobri dve uri ali več (odvisno kako pogosto umivate roke). Krema mi roke navlaži in nahrani, občutek na koži je super, kar je glede na to, da je olje sladkega mandlja že na četrtem mestu (čeprav bi lahko bilo tudi višje), tudi pričakovano. Kreme se porabi malo, tako da bo ena tuba dolgo zdržala. Kremo priporočam, še posebej, če vam je všeč vonj po marcipanu. Cena kreme je 8€.

The cream itself is white, very well spreadable, with just the right thickness. The cream smells like the whole almond line, like sweet almonds or marzipan. The cream absorbs quickly, it doesn’t leave a greasy feeling, just soft hands. The smell stays on the skin quite some time, about two hours or more (depending how often you wash your hands). It moisturizes and nourishes my hands, the feeling on the skin is great, which is expected, given the fact that the sweet almond oil is in fourth place (although it could be higher) in ingredients. One tube will last you a long time, because you don’t need a lot. I do recommend the cream, especially if you like the smell of marzipan. It costs 8€.

The Body Shop trdi, da milo za roke v bistvu ne vsebuje mila. Milo je v plastični embalaži s pumpico. En pritisk na pumpico je dovolj da dobro umijemo roke. Milo se dobro speni, dobro umije in se enostavno spere. Na koži na pušča filma. Diši kot celotna linija, torej po sladkih mandljih oziroma po marcipanu. Milo bi naj kožo na rokah navlažilo, kar težko potrdim ali zanikam, edino kar lahko izpostavim je, da mi kože definitivno ne izsuši, kar je velik plus. Vonj se na rokah obdrži dobre pol ure. Cena mila je 7€.

The Body Shop states that the hand wash is soap-free. The wash is in a plastic packaging with a pump. One pump is enough to wash the hands well. The hand wash foams well, cleans good and washes off easily. It doesn’t leave a film on the skin. It smells like the whole line, like sweet almonds or marzipan. The wash is supposed to moisturize the hands, which I can’t confirm or deny, the only thing I can point out is that is definitely doesn’t dry out my skin, which is a big plus. The scent stays on the hands half an hour. The price for the wash is 7€.

IMG_6591

Če zaključim, lahko povem, da je krema za roke res super. Milo ni slabo a ga verjetno ne bi več kupila, saj rada vedno preizkušam nova. Pilica in olje za nohte pa mi nista všeč in ju tudi ne bi več kupila. Ste preizkusile katerega izmed ocenjenih izdelkov. So vam bili všeč? Pustite mi komentar spodaj.

To conclude, I can say that the hand cream is really great. The hand wash is not bad but I probably wouldn’t buy it anymore, because I like to try out new things. The file and the nail oil I didn’t like and I wouldn’t buy them again. Did you try any of the reviewed products? Did you like them? Leave me a comment below.

Moja nega obraza

Naj začnem s tipom moje kože na obrazu. Moja koža je mešana. Torej T-predel imam masten (pa spet ne preveč masten, ampak normalno masten), kožo na licih pa imam normalno, pozimi suho. Ne pozabimo še na moje pore, ki so ogromne. Ravno zaradi tega, se moja nega obraza med poletjem in zimo razlikuje. Pozimi uporabljam malo bolj hranilne in vlažilne kreme, kot poleti, ravno zaradi tega, ker je moja koža na določenih predelih veliko bolj suha, kot poleti. Pa tudi masti se ne toliko, kot poleti. Z aknami nimam večjih težav, tu pa tam se pojavi kak manjši »izbruh«, ki je ponavadi povezan z nihanjem hormonov. Pa začnimo:

Let me start with my skin type. I have combination skin type which means that my T-zone is greasy (not too greasy, but normally greasy), the skin on my cheeks is normal, dry in the winter time. Let’s not forget my pores which are huge. Because of that my skin care routine differs between summer and winter time. In the winter I use a bit more moisturizing and nourishing creams than in the summer time, because my skin is drier on certain areas on my face in that time of the year. I don’t have problems with acne, I get a hormonal breakout every now and then. So let’s start:

1.a Vsak večer najprej umijem obraz. Če imam na sebi ličila, potem uporabim Melvitin peneči čistilni žele, če pa sem brez ličil pa obraz umijem z Nuxe Reve de Miel gelom za čiščenje obraza in odstranjevanje ličil. To je, kar se umivanja in odstranjevanja ličil tiče, pri meni vse.

IMG_6132IMG_6290

1.a Every night I wash my face. If I have make-up on then I use the Melvita gentle cleansing jelly, but if I’m without make-up then I use Nuxe Reve de Miel face cleansing and make-up removing gel to wash my face. When it comes to cleansing my face, this is it.

1.b Na vsakih par dni naredim še piling obraza, s katerim odstranim odmrlo kožo. Uporabljam Soap & glory Scrub your nose in it, ki sicer ni moj najljubši, ampak še vedno iščem idealen piling za obraz.

10160235

1.b Every couple of days I exfoliate my face to remove dead skin cells. I use Soap & Glory Scrub your nose in it, which is not my favorite, but I’m still looking for the perfect face scrub.

2. Če menim, da nisem odstranila vseh ličil, potem uporabim Simple Kind to skin micelarno vodo, katero nanesem na vato in potegnem po predelih, kjer mislim, da je potrebno.

IMG_6301

2. If I think that I haven’t removed all of the make-up then I use my Simple Kind to skin micellar cleansing water which I apply on a cotton pad and swipe the areas where I think is necessary.

3. Naslednji je losjon za obraz od The Body Shopa, Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Bi-phase essence lotion, ki je nujno potreben, da dodatno navlažim kožo. Ponavadi ga nanašam le na dele obraza, ki dodatno nego potrebujejo, torej na lica, T-predel v veliki večini časa preskočim.

IMG_6287

3. Next is a lotion for the face from The Body Shop, Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Bi-phase essence lotion, which is necessary to additionally moisturize the skin. I usually apply it only to parts of the face that need extra care, therefore on the cheeks. I skip the T-zone most of the time.

4. Nato nanesem kremo za nego kože okoli oči, katero nanesem pod očmi in tudi na veko. Uporabljam Caudalie Vinosource creme S.O.S..

IMG_6294

4. Then I apply my eye cream under the eyes and on my eyelids. I use Caudalie Vinosource creme S.O.S..

5. Na koncu nanesem še kremo za obraz od The Body Shopa, Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising cream, ki je sicer lahka krema in v trenutkih, ko potrebujem malo več, potem nanesem losjon iz 3. koraka po celem obrazu.

IMG_6295

5. Last but not the least is my face moisturizer from The Body Shop, Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising cream, which is a light cream, so in moments when I need a little bit more I apply the lotion from step 3. all over the face.

Enkrat na teden tudi uporabim masko za obraz, The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy sleeping mask, in takrat preskočim 5. korak, kajti s to masko tudi spim. Prav tako uporabljam Lushevo Cup O’coffee masko, ki je zamenjala mojo Brazened honey svežo masko po dobrih 8ih letih uporabe. Takrat uporabim kremo kot ponavadi. Ocena Lusheve Cup O’coffee maske kmalu na blogu. Oceni Melvitinega penečega želeja in TBS Bouncy sleeping maske pa lahko najdete tukaj.

IMG_6125

Once a week I use a face mask, The Body Shop Drop of Youth Bouncy sleeping mask, and in that case I skip step 5, because I sleep with that mask. I also use the Lush Cup O’coffee mask, that replaced my Brazened honey fresh mask after 8 years of use. In that case I use my moisturizer as usual. I will review the Lush Cup O’coffee mask soon. You can find the reviews of the Melvita jelly and The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy sleeping mask here.

Nuxe izdelke lahko kupite v kateri koli lekarni, Melvito in Caudalie najdete v Mullerju, The Body Shop kupujem v Travel Free trgovinah, Soap&Glory pa v Douglasu v Avstriji. Če želite bolj obširne ocene izdelkov, ki jih uporabljam za nego obraza, mi to napišite v komentar in vam bom z veseljem ustregla. 🙂

You can buy Nuxe products in any pharmacy, Melvita and Caudalie in Muller, The Body Shop in Travel Free shops, Soap&Glory in Douglas in Austria. If you would like to see more extensive reviews of the products mentioned in my skincare routine leave me a comment and I will be happy to do it. 🙂

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€.
