Philosophy: Purity one-step facial cleanser

img_9004

Tisti, ki obiskujete blog redno ste verjetno opazili, da me nekaj časa ni bilo oziroma, da so bile objave bolje redke. Za to se vam tudi opravičujem, ampak včasih enostavno ni časa pa tudi volje ni bilo, če sem čisto iskrena. Ker vse produkte, ki jih ocenim tudi sama kupim, včasih pač enostavno ni možno kupiti novega produkta in ga posledično oceniti. Vseeno pa se bom potrudila, da vam bom vsaj parkrat na mesec ponudila novo objavo. 🙂

Those who visit my blog regularly have probably seen that I wasn’t posting as much as I was before. I do apologize for that but sometimes there’s no time and sincerely there wasn’t that much will as well. Because I buy all the products that I review myself sometimes I just can’t buy a new product and consequently review it. However, I will do my best to post at least a few times a month. 🙂

Ker si rada obraz očistim v čim manj korakih, vsak dan uporabim gel za umivanje obraza, ki tudi odstrani ličila. Ko sem videla, da je Philosophy možno kupiti na FeelUnique strani, sem ga hitro naročila, da vidim, če je res tako dober kot pravijio.

Because I like to clean my face in the fewest possible steps I use a face cleansing gel every day that also washes my make-up off. When I saw that I can buy Philosophy on the FeelUnique site I quickly ordered it to see if it’s really that good as they say it is.

Gel je v prozorni plastenki s črnimi napisi. Čisto enostavno in priročno. Sam gel je rumenkasto bele barve, srednje gostote. Diši po eteričnem olju limone. Gel dobro umije ličila in na koži ne pušča filma, prav tako mi kože ne izsuši. Za sabo pusti le čisto in mehko kožo. Ko imam več plasti ličil na obrazu velikokrat dvakrat umijem obraz, ampak to delam ne glede na to, katero čistilo uporabljam. Pač za moj boljši občutek. Za cel obraz dam na dlan ponavadi količino fižola, tako da se ga zelo malo porabi.

The gel is in a transparent bottle with black lettering. Really simple and efficient. The gel itself is a yellowish-white color, medium thick. It smells like lemon essential oil. The gel washes make-up off nicely and doesn’t leave a film on the skin and it doesn’t dry out my skin either. It leaves the skin feeling clean and soft. When I have more layers of make-up on my skin I usually wash it twice but I do this no matter which gel I use. It’s for my better feeling. I use an amount of a bean for the whole face so you don’t really use much.

Edini in kar precej velik minus zame pa je ta, da se gel ne peni. Do sedaj sem uporabljala Melvitin gel za umivanje obraza, ki se tudi ni penil zato sem sicer že navajena na to, ampak vseeno imam rada, da se gel speni. Gel je dober, dobro umije, koža je čista, lepa, vendar gel ni nič boljši od Melvitinega zato tudi ne vem če ga bom še kupila. Prav tako pa vedno rada poskusim nekaj novega, bom ga pa definitivno porabila do konca.

The only and quite a big minus for me is that the gel doesn’t foam. So far I have used the face cleansing gel from Melvita that also didn’t foam so I am used to it but I still like it if the gel foams. The gel is good, it washes well, the skin is clean, nice, but the gel isn’t any better than the one from Melvita and that’s why I’m not sure I’m going to buy it again. Also I like trying new products but I will definitely use it up.

Kot sem omenila sem ga kupila na FeelUnique strani in za 240ml odštela 23€, kar je veliko ni pa preveč, če želite učinkovit gel za umivanje obraza.

As I mentioned I bought it on FeelUnique and paid 23€ for 240ml which is a lot but not too much if you want an effective facial cleansing gel.

Prav tako nisem pozabila na nagrajenke iz zadnje NAGRADNE IGRE, ki se je zaključila 24. oktobra. Srečni nagrajenki sta: Darja G. in Tina. Čestitke! Prosim da mi pošljeta podatke na e-mail, da vama lahko paketka čim prej pošljem. Ostalim pa hvala za sodelovanje.

Also I haven’t forgotten the winners of the last GIVEAWAY that ended on October 24th. The lucky winners are: Darja G. and Tina. Congratulations! Please send me your info by e-mail so I can send the packages as soon as possible. I would like to thank everyone for participating.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

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.
