Murad: Skin Smoothing Polish

Če ste prebrali mojo zadnjo objavo, potem ste videli, da sem bila kar nezadovoljna s pilingom za obraz od Soap&Glory in da sem bila v iskanju novega. Konec prejšnjega leta sem pri eni tuji vlogerki slučajno naletela na tega od Murada in sem se kljub malo višji ceni odločila poskusiti s tem.

If you read my last post then you saw that I was quite unsatisfied with the Soap&Glory face exfoliator and that I was in the search for a new one. I saw this Murad exfoliator being used by a foreign vlogger at the end of last year and I decided to try it out despite the slightly higher price tag.

Embalaža je plastična tuba, ki drži 100ml produkta. Je prozorna kar mi je všeč, saj tako vedno vidim koliko produkta je še notri. Sam produkt je rožnate barve, izredno goste konsistence in nežnega vonja, ki se ga skoraj ne zazna.

The packaging is a plastic tube that holds 100ml of product. It’s clear which I like so I can always see how much product is left inside. The product itself is rosey colored with a really thick consistency and a delicate scent which is almost undetectable.

Murad trdi, da gre za bogat in kremast nežen piling, ki čisti pore in razkriva zdravo polt. Mikro polirne kroglice odstranijo nečistoče, ki so se nabrale na koži in odmrle kožne celice, kislina, pridobljena iz granatnega jabolka, pa oža pore.

Murad claims that this is a rich and creamy soft scrub that cleanses the pores and reveals a healthy complexion. The micro polishing beads remove impurities that have accumulated on the skin as well as dead skin cells, the pomegranate acid shrinks the pores.

Pri uporabi izstisnem na roko količino lešnika in začnem masirati na umit in vlažen obraz. Nanesem ga na cel obraz, najbolj pa se osredotočim na čelo, nos in predel okoli nosu in brado, torej območja, ki so zame najbolj problematična. Piling je dovolj grob, da imam občutek da svoje delo tudi dobro in učinkovito opravi, vendar pa ne pregrob, da bi kožo poškodoval. Prav tako mi je všeč, da kože ne izsuši. Koža je po uporabi mehka in gladka, na koži ne pušča filma. Kar se ožanja por tiče pa v te stvari ne verjamem, prav tako so moje pore izredno velike in globoke, tako da jim ni več pomoči. 🙂

While using the exfoliator I take a hazelnut sized amount on my hand and start massaging my freshly washed and moist face. I put it all over the face mostly focusing it on my forehead, nose and around the nose and chin, so the areas that are the most problematic for me. The exfoliator is rough enough that I have the feeling it does it’s job good and efficiently but not too rough to damage the skin. I also like the fact that it doesn’t dry out my skin. The skin is left feeling soft and smooth without leaving a film on it. When it comes to shrinking the pores I don’t really believe in this kind of claims and also my pores are extremely huge and deep so nothing can help them anymore. 🙂

Piling uporabljam enkrat na teden in do zdaj sem ga v parih mesecih porabila izredno malo, tako da se kljub malo višji ceni vseeno izplača, saj traja in traja. Piling bom sigurno še kupila, razen če me bo zamikalo, da poskusim kaj novega. Zaenkrat sem zelo zadovoljna in ga z veseljem uporabljam. Kupila sem ga na Lookfantastic strani in zanj odštela 32,95€.

I use the exfoliator once a week and so far in a few months I used a tiny little bit so despite the higher price tag it last a long time so I’ll probably buy the exfoliator again unless if I’ll be tempted to try something new. For now I’m really pleased with it and I like using it. I bought it on the Lookfantastic site and paid 32,95€ for it.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

Produkti, ki mi niso všeč #2

Sicer je takih produktov bolj malo, saj se vedno potrudim, da izdelke preučim pred nakupom in da pogledam ocene drugih uporabnikov a včasih enostavno ni časa za to in kupim kaj na blef. 🙂 Zato sem spet našla 3 produkte, ki mi niso odgovarjali. To ne pomeni, da produkti niso dobri, to pomeni, da meni osebno niso všeč. Pa poglejmo kaj se je tokrat znašlo na tem seznamu.

There are not a lot of products I don’t like because I always do my best to research the product before buying it and to check reviews from other users, but sometimes there just isn’t any time for that and I buy something on a whim. 🙂 That’s why I found 3 products that didn’t work for me. This doesn’t mean that they aren’t good it just means that I personally didn’t like them. So let’s see what made the list this time.

THE BODY SHOP – VITAMIN E GENTLE FACIAL WASH

Nujno sem potrebovala nekaj za umivanje obraza in odstranjevanje ličil in ker sem načeloma navdušena nad njihovimi izdelki sem se odločila poskusiti s tem. Ker je pisalo, da je primeren tudi za umivanje ličil in da je nežen do kože ter primeren za vse tipe kože, sem mislila da z njim ne morem zgrešit. Prva napaka je bila že ta, da produkta nisem povonjala pred nakupom. Ne vem če je moj bil pokvarjen ali ne, ampak smrdel je dobesedno po plastelinu in vonj je bil zelo moteč. Ličila je sicer resda dobro umil, ampak kožo mi je po uporabi izredno zategovalo, tako da težko rečem, da je nežen do kože, saj moja mešana koža drugače ni občutljiva. Gela več ne bom nikoli kupila in ga tako tudi seveda ne priporočam.

I needed something for washing my face and removing make-up and because I’m generally impressed with their products I decided to try it out. Because it stated that it’s suitable for washing off make-up and that it’s gentle to the skin I didn’t think I could go wrong with it. The first mistake was that I didn’t smell the product before buying it. I don’t know if mine was bad or not but it smelled like play-doh and the scent was really disturbing. I did however wash off the make-up well but my skin was feeling very tight after using it so I can’t say that it’s gentle to the skin because my combination skin isn’t sensitive otherwise. I won’t buy the gel anymore and of course I don’t recommend it either.

ESSENCE – STAY ALL DAY 16 HOUR LONG-LASTING CONCEALER

Vedno rada poskusim nove korektorje, še posebej v nižjem cenovnem razredu, tako sem ob obisku Mullerja na hitro pograbila tega. Moja napaka je bila ta, da nisem prebrala dobro embalaže. Edino kar sem videla je, da bi naj bil dolgo obstojen. Sama imam rada korektorje, ki zelo dobro prekrivajo in čeprav bi tudi ta naj to naredil pa tega ne opravi dovolj dobro. Korektor na meni dobesedno izgine. Poskusila sem ga razmazati tudi s prsti in učinek ni bil nič kaj boljši. O tem ali je dolgoobstojen ne morem komentrirati, saj sem čez ta korektor potem nanesla drugega. Čeprav je korektor bil cenovno ugoden ga žal ne priporočam, saj je v mojem primeru bilo enako z ali brez tega korektorja.

I always like to try new concealers especially in the lower price range so I snatched this one while visiting Muller. My mistake was that I didn’t read the label very well. The only thing I saw was that it’s supposed to be long-lasting. I love concealers that cover really well and although this one is supposed to do the same it doesn’t do the job good enough. The concealer literally disappears on me. I tried blending it with my fingers but the effect wasn’t any better. I can’t really comment on whether it’s long-lasting or not because I had to use another concealer over this one. Although the concealer was affordable I can’t recommend it because in my case it would be the same with or without it.

SOAP & GLORY – SCRUB YOUR NOSE IN IT

Ta izdelek se ni slučajno znašel v moji košarici, saj sem se pred nakupom posvetila raziskavi. Ocene uporabnikov so bile v glavnem dobre in ob obisku Douglas-a v Avstriji sem ga tudi kupila. Piling je svetlo modre barve, goste konsistence in diši rahlo po mentolu. Sama imam rada malo bolj grobe pilinge kar ta piling ni. Piling zrnc je sicer veliko a so te tako drobne da moram s prsti močno pritisniti ob kožo, da sploh čutim učinek pilinga. Sam produkt daje na koži hladen občutek. Piling sem sicer dolgo časa uporabljala in mu dala veliko priložnosti, da se izkaže, a nikoli nisem bila zadovoljna z učinkom. Koža je sicer bila čista po uporabi a to opravi tudi moj gel za umivanje obraza. Če imate radi nežni pilingi potem bi mogoče bil dober za vas. Meni ni bil všeč in ga več ne bom kupila.

This product didn’t accidentally get in my cart because I did my research before buying it. The user reviews were mostly good and while visiting the Douglas store in Austria I bought it. The exfoliator is a light blue color with thick consistency and smells slightly of mint. I myself like more coarse exfoliators which this one isn’t. There are a lot of exfoliating granules but they are so small I really have to press hard against my skin to even feel any effect of the exfoliator. The product itself gives a cooling feeling on the skin. I used the exfoliator for a long time and I gave it plenty of opportunities to prove itself but I’ve never been satisfied with the effect. The skin was clean after using it but my face cleansing gel does the same. If you like gentle exfoliators then it might be good for you. I didn’t like it and I won’t buy it again.

To so bili torej trije izdelki, ki so me razočarali oziroma kateri mi niso bili dovolj všeč, da bi jih priporočala drugim ali jih ponovno kupila. Če vas zanima kateri trije so se prejšnjič znašli na tem seznamu ga lahko najdete TUKAJ.

So these were the three products that disappointed me or I didn’t like them enough to recommend them to others or even re-buy them. If you would like to know which three products have previously disappointed me you can find the list HERE.
