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. 😉

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.

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.
