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.

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. 😉

Lush: Don’t look at me

IMG_7850

Kot mnogi že veste, sem obsedena z maskami za obraz, predvsem z Lushevimi maskami. Zato me je izredno hitro zamikala tudi tale, precej nova maska, Don’t look at me. Kot sem prav tako že omenila, so mi najljubše maske s katerimi lahko naredim še piling obraza.

As many of you know, I’m obsessed with face masks especially with Lush masks. Therefore I was quickly interested in this one, the quite new mask, Don’t look at me. As I also mentioned before, my favorite masks are the ones that I can use to exfoliate my face as well.

IMG_7851

Priznam, da me je maska najprej zamikala zaradi barve, saj je čudovite svetlo modro, turkizne, barve. Ko pa sem prebrala, da vsebuje tudi mleta riževa zrna, ki omogočajo piling sem bila odločena, da jo poskusim. Maska ni gosta ali trda, ampak izredno mazljiva, tako da je nanos res preprost. Diši po sladki limoni in citrusih, torej ni prekislega vonja, tudi ne presladkega. Meni se zdi ravno prav za poletje, saj je vonj precej nežen in nevsiljiv.

I admit that this mask initially tempted me because of its color, it’s a gorgeous bright blue, turquoise, color. When I read, that it also contains ground rice, that allow me to exfoliate, I was determined to try it out. The mask isn’t thick or hard, but extremely malleable, so the application is really simple.  It smells like sweet lemon and citrus, so the scent isn’t too sour as not too sweet. I think it’s just right for the summer, because the scent is pretty gentle and unobtrusive.

Nanesem jo na cel obraz, izognem se predelu pod očmi. Masko pustim na obrazu 15 do 20 minut. Ker masko nanesem precej na debelo (lahko jo nanesete tudi manj) se dalj časa suši, ampak je po 20ih minutah suha. Po pretečenem času začnem z vlažno dlanjo masko odstranjevati in s tem naredim še piling. Mleta riževa zrna so dovolj velika in ravno prav “groba”, da učinkovito opravijo svoje delo. Jaz imam rada precej grobe pilinge, zato z roko kar precej močno pritisnem ob kožo, da je piling učinek še večji. Če niste pristaš grobih pilingov pa lahko le narahlo pritisnete ob kožo in tako umijete masko z obraza.

I apply it to the whole face, avoiding the area around the eyes. I leave the mask on for 15 to 20 minutes. Because I apply it quite thick (you can apply less) it takes a bit more time to dry, but after 20 minutes it’s dry. After the passed time I start to remove the mask with a damp palm and exfoliate in the process. The ground rice grains are large enough and “rough” enough to do the job effectively.  I like a bit more rough exfoliate, so I press quite heavily with my hand against the skin, so the exfoliating effect is even bigger. If you’re not a fan of harsh exfoliates you can press gently against the skin and wash the face that way.

Med umivanjem sem dobila rahlo masten občutek na koži, vendar pa občutek hitro izgine in ostane nam le čista koža, ki je navlažena, zato sama nisem uporabila kreme za obraz. Maska mi je všeč tudi zato, ker vsebuje limono, ki oža pore ter tunizijski neroli in organski tofu, ki posvetlita kožo in jo negujeta.

During the washing I got a slightly greasy feeling on the skin, but the feeling quickly disappears and we’re left with clean, moisturized skin, so I didn’t use any facial cream. I also like the mask, because it contains lemon, that minimises pores and Tunisian neroli and organic tofu which brighten and nourish the skin.

Vonj se na koži ne obdrži dolgo oziroma, ker je vonj precej nežen ga sama nisem več vonjala. Koža je lepo sijoča, čista in navlažena. Maska je pakirana v 75g lončku, ki je izredno priročen in tipično Lushevski. Sama sem masko dobila “zastonj”, saj sem masko menjala za 5 čistih Lushevih lončkov v trgovini. Drugače je cena maske 10,45€, kar se mi ne zdi veliko. Masko priporočam in sama jo bom z veseljem uporaljala celo poletje.

The scent doesn’t linger on the skin for long and it’s delicate as it is, so I didn’t smell it anymore. The skin is shiny, clean and moisturized. The mask is packed in a 75g pot which is extremely convenient and typical for Lush. I got this mask “for free” because I exchanged it for 5 clean Lush pots in the store. Otherwise the price for the mask is 10,45€ which I don’t find to be too much. I recommend the mask and will use it happily the whole summer.

Lush: Volcano foot mask

IMG_7699

Ker je vreme kočno toplo je prišel tudi čas japonk in sandal. In kaj to pomeni? To pomeni, da je potrebno poskrbeti za stopala. Čeprav si jaz s stopali nisem najbolj na ti, pa vseeno skrbim, da izgledajo negovana in urejena. Na srečo nimam zelo trde ali suhe kože, ampak vseeno moram skrbeti, da se to ne zgodi. Torej, ta teden, se bomo posvečali stopalom. 😉

Since the weather is warm it’s finally time for flip flops and sandals. And what does that mean? It means that we have to take care of our feet. Although I’m not into feet that much, I still see that they look nice and taken care of. Luckily I don’t have very hard or dry skin, but I still have to prevent it. So we’re devoting this week to feet. 😉

IMG_7702

Ker veliko časa preživim na Lushevi spletni strani, kot tudi v trgovini, sem se odločila raziskati področje nege stopal. In kaj hitro sem našla to masko, ki je vzbudila moje zanimanje, predvsem zaradi dejstva, da vsebuje cimet. Vsi, ki me malo boljše poznate, veste, da sem čisto nora na cimet. 😀 Zato sem se tudi odločila masko poskusiti.

Because I spend a lot of time on the Lush website, as in the store I decided to explore the field of foot care. I found this mask, that intrigued my interest, because of the fact that it contains cinnamon. And everyone that knows me a bit better, know, that I’m crazy about cinnamon. 😀 That’s also why I decided to try out this mask.

Maska je pakirana v črnem Lushevem lončku, z napisi in navodili. Praktično in uporabno. Meni diši maska čudovito, cimet je precej v ospredju. Je sivo bele barve, saj vsebuje tudi kaolinsko glino. Konsistenca je zelo gosta in med prsti čutimo plovec. Med nanašanjem se kar hitro suši, zato priporočam da imate vse pripravljeno vnaprej. Masko je potrebno nanesti na stopala in jih zaviti v folijo, ter jih pustiti počivati okoli 10 minut.

The mask is packed in a black Lush pot, with inscriptions and instructions. It’s practical and useful. I love the scent of the mask, the cinnamon is in the forefront for sure. It’s a white-ish gray color, because it contains kaolin clay as well. The consistency is really thick and we can feel the pumice between our fingers. It dries quite fast while applying so I recommend that you prepare everything in advance. You should apply the mask to the feet, wrap them in foil and leave to rest for about 10 minutes.

VolcanoCollage

Zaradi cimeta in folije v kombinaciji je občutek na koži “pekoč” oziroma topel (če ste že kdaj poskusili kakšno toplo masko, potem lahko učinek primerjate). Meni je všeč, saj je maska na začetku hladna in mi stopala ohladi (hranim jo v hladilniku), ko jih zavijem v folijo, pa vedno bolj topla. Teh 10-15 minut sem si vzela zase in se zleknila na kavč. 🙂 Po pretečenem času, sem si stopala umila. Zmehčano kožo na podplatih sem izkoristila in po stopalih podrgnila s plovcem za odstranjevanje trde kože. Svež občutek na nogah je prisoten še nekaj časa (okrog pol ure). Prav tako sem nanesla še Gehwol Softening Balzam (ocena v petek) in nega je bila zaključena.

The feeling on the skin is “burning” or warm (if you ever tried a warm mask, then you can compare the effect) because of the cinnamon and foil combination. I like it, because in the beginning it cools your feet, because the mask is cool (I keep it in the fridge) and when I foil them the warmth increases. I took those 10-15 minutes for myself and stretched out on the couch. 🙂 After the time passed, I washed my feet. I took advantage of my softened skin on my soles and rubbed them with a pumice stone for removing hard skin. The fresh feeling on the feet stays a while (for about half an hour). I also applied the Gehwol Softening Balsam (review on Friday) and the foot treatment was completed.

Volcano2Collage

Maske je 125g, kar bo zame dovolj za 3-4 nanose. Torej porabi se je relativno veliko, odvisno koliko nanesete (jaz sem stopala popolnoma prekrila z masko). Masko bi lahko načeloma nanesli tudi samo na podplate, kar bi zmanjšalo količino nanosa. Zame bo to dovolj za čez poletje in razvajanje enkrat na mesec.  Masko lahko kupite v Lushevih trgovinah za 11,95€. Jaz si jo bom sigurno še privoščila in jo tudi priporočam. Za več informacij, sestavine, kliknite tukaj.

You get 125g of the mask, which will be enough for about 3-4 applications. So you use relatively a lot, it depends on how much you apply (I covered my feet entirely with the mask). You could apply the mask to your soles only, which would decrease the amount you would use. For me, this will be enough for the summer  and pampering once a month. You can buy the mask in Lush stores for 11.95€. I will definitely buy it again and I do recommend it. For more information, ingredients, click here

P.s.: Opravičujem se vsem, ki ste dobili e-pošto z novo objavo, ki ni bila dokončana. Tehnične napake so bile. 🙂 Bom se potrudila, da se v prihodnje to več ne bo dogajalo. / I apologize to everyone that got the e-mail with the new post, that wasn’t finished. There were some technical difficulties. 🙂 I will do my best, to avoid these kind of mishaps in the future.

Lush Sakura

Sakura je, po mojem mnenju, najlepša kopalna bombica od Lusha. Je mlečno bele barve spridihom rožnate, z rožnatimi in zeleno-modrimi pikami. Na vrhu ima skupek rožnatih in zelenih solnih (?) kristalov. Lahko bi jo gledala in vohala cel dan. 🙂 Glavne note so mimoza, jasmin in citrusi, kar nam tudi pove, da je bolj nežnega cvetličnega vonja. Meni čudovito diši. Kot majhna rožica s pridihom sladkosti.

Sakura is, in my opinion, the most beautiful bath bomb from Lush. It’s milky white with a hint of pink, with pink and teal dots. On the top it has a bunch of pink and teal salt (?) crystals. I could look at it and smell it the whole day. 🙂 The main notes are mimosa, jasmine and citrus, which tells us that it has a more delicate flowery scent. I love the scent. It’s like a small flower with a hint of sweetness.

sakura_lt-360x360

Ker je bombica svetla ni tiste barvne eksplozije, kot smo je vajeni pri večini Lushevih bombicah. Vode ne obarva, kot lahko vidite tudi v videu spodaj. Med kopanjem sem opazila da je na vodi zelo tanka oljnata plast, kar bi lahko bilo limonino olje. Koža je po kopanju rahlo odišavljena in navlažena. Čeprav bo mogoče kdo razočaran, ker ni bilo nobene barvne eksplozije, ampak meni je tako lepa in tudi diši mi zelo lepo, da jo bom sigurno še kupila. Cena bombice je 5,50€.

Because the bath bomb is light there is no colorful explosion that we are used to with most of the Lush bath bombs. It doesn’t color the water either as you can see in the video below. I did notice a really thin oily layer on the water which could be the citrus oil. The skin is slightly scented and moisturized after bathing. Although some of you may be disappointed because there was no colorful explosion I myself love the way it smells and looks so I will buy it again. The price is 5,50€.

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, citronska kislina, parfum, fina morska sol, limonino olje, absolut mimoze, absolut pomarančnih cvetov, absolut jasmina, izvleček gardenije, citral, limonene, barvilo 18050, barvilo 42045.
