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: 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.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

Lush: The Comforter bubble bar

Čeprav sem popolnoma predana Lushevim kopalnim bombicam, pa si za spremembo privoščim občasno tudi penečo kopel. Tako sem si tudi tokrat privoščila The Comforter penečo kopel. Kopel je rožnato bela s spiralnim vzorcem, nepravilne ploščate ovalne oblike.

Although I’m fully committed to Lush bath bombs, I do occasionally use a bubble bar. So this time I used The Comforter bubble bar. The bar is pink and white with a spiral pattern and an irregular flat oval shape.

IMG_7436

Vonj je precej saden z dodatki citrusov. Meni diši izredno lepo, poživljajoče. Lush pravi, da je glavna nota črni ribez in s tem se popolnoma strinjam. Meni je vonj izredno všeč.

The scent is quite fruity with an addition of citruses. To me it smells very nice, invigorating. Lush claims that the main note is blackcurrant and I totally agree. I really like the scent.

Lusheve peneče kopeli je potrebno drobiti v roki pod tekočo vodo, da se najbolje spenijo. Večji kos kopeli uporabite, bolj močan je vonj, bolj obarvana je voda in tudi več pene je. Jaz ponavadi uporabim polovico in mi je ravno dovolj. Lahko pa seveda uporabite tudi manj, več ne priporočam. Voda se je tokrat obarvala nežno rožnato.

To get a good foam you have to crumble the bubble bar under running water. The bigger the chunk you use, the stronger the scent, the water gets more colorful and there’s more foam. I usually use half of the bar and that’s enough for me. You can use less, but I don’t recommend using more. The water colored to a soft pink.

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, vinski kamen, natrijev lavrat sulfat, lavril betain, parfum, titanov dioksid, kokamid DEA, olje bergamotke, absolut črnega ribeza, cipresovo olje, limonene, linalool, barvilo 45410, barvilo 17200.

Kože mi ni izsušila, kar me ne preseneča, saj mi Lusheve kopeli načeloma nikoli ne izsušijo kože. Kopel prav tako vsebuje malenkost olja in sicer olje bergamotke ter cipresovo olje. Koža je le narahlo dišala po kopeli, vonj pa se je obdržal kakšni dve uri. Jaz jo priporočam. 🙂

It didn’t dry out my skin, which doesn’t surprise me, because baths from Lush usually never do. The bath also contains a little bit of oil, namely the bergamot oil and the cypress oil. The skin was slightly scented after the bath, the scent lingered for about two hours. I recommend it. 🙂

Lush: Blackberry bath bomb

Ta kopalna bombica je po mojem mnenju v prodaji že celo večnost, jaz pa sem jo kupila šele letos. Bombica je vijolična in na vrhu je vtisnjen napis BOMB. Moja je sicer imela par belo-vijoličnih pikic, ampak mislim, da je to bilo zato, ker sem jo slučajno zmočila in niso take ponavadi.

This bath bomb, in my opinion, has been sold in Lush for ages and I finally bought it this year.  The bomb is purple with the word BOMB imprinted on the top. Mine had a few white-purple dots, but I think it was because it got wet and they usually don’t look like that.

IMG_7191

Dišala je zelo močno in po prejšnji (ocena tukaj), ko sem bila razočarana, mi je bilo všeč, da lepo diši. Že samo ime pove, da diši po robidah, vendar pa je vonj robid pomešan tudi z vonjem bergamotke. Voda se obarva vijolično a je še vedno prosojna. Video kopalne bombice v akciji lahko vidite spodaj.

It smelled really strong and after the last one (review here), when I was disappointed, I liked that it smelled so nice. The name itself let’s us know that it smells like blackberries, but the blackberry scent is mixed with the scent of bergamot. The water stains purple, but it’s still transparent. Video of the bath bomb in action can be seen below.

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, citronska kislina, parfum, olje bergamotke, olje kadila, barvilo 18050, barvilo 42045.

Kar mi je bilo všeč in kaj imam rada je to, da me v sredini bombice preseneti sporočilo. Tokrat je pisalo Boom Boom! Super bi blo, če bi Lush natisnil na primer 100 različnih sporočil in jih naključno dajal v kopalne krogle, tako da nikoli ne bi vedeli kaj bi dobili. 😉 Kože mi ni izsušila, saj vsebuje tudi olja, kar je vedno velik plus. Koža je bila prav tako lepo odišavljena po kopeli, vonj se je obdržal kakšne tri ure.

What I liked and what I love is when I’m surprised by a note, hidden in the middle of the bomb. This time it said Boom Boom! It would be great if Lush would print for example a 100 different messages and randomly place them in the bath bombs, so you would never know, what you would get. 😉 It didn’t dry out my skin, because it contains oils as well, which is always a big plus. The skin was nicely perfumed after the bath, the scent lingered for about three hours.

IMG_7198

Vse je bilo super dokler nisem stopila iz banje, saj se je na površini vode nabralo olje (olje bergamotke in/ali olje kadila) in se posledično oprijelo roba banje. Še slabše je bilo, ko sem poskušala to zdrgnit, saj samo z vodo ni šlo. Po sproščujoči kopeli pa se mi res ni dalo še banje čistiti. Tako, da ji dajem to v minus. Ne vem, če se to vedno dogaja ali je bilo kaj narobe z mojo? Kakšne so vaše izkušnje?

Everything was great until I stepped out of the bathtub, because oil accumulated on the water surface (bergamot oil and/or frankincense oil) and subsequently clinged to the edge of the tub. It was even worse when I tried to rub it off, because it wouldn’t  with water only. After a relaxing bath I really didn’t want to clean the bathtub. So that was a minus. I don’t know if this always happens or there was something wrong with mine? What are your experiences?
