H&M: Dead Sea Mud Mask

hmmaskaCollage

Tole masko za obraz sem kupila ob prejšnjem obisku H&M trgovine v Ljubljani. Takrat sem tudi kupila H&M Charcoal and pumice masko (masko z ogljem in plovcem), ki sem jo ocenila že tukaj. Tokrat pa sem poskusila drugo masko, ki sem jo kupila in sicer z blatom mrtvega morja za mešano kožo.

I bought this mask the last time I visited the H&M store in Ljubljana. I bought the H&M Charcoal and pumice mask that I reviewed here then as well. This time I decided to try the other one I bought, namely the one with the dead sea mud for combination skin. 

Maske so pakirane v majhnem lončku za enkratno uporabo. Maske so v lončkih različnih barv, ta le bila v oranžnem, vendar pa maska notri ni bila oranžna kot sem pričakovala. Zraven so priložena navodila, ki so natisnjena na kartonasti zloženki v kateri je lonček. Embalaža je torej dobro zamišljena za enkratno uporabo. Sama maska je svetlo pastelno zelene barve. Maska ni čisto gladka, notri so nekakšni mikro delci, ki pa niso bili uporabni za piling in zato zame čisto odveč, saj jih je bilo tudi relativno malo notri. Ko sem masko odprla mi je v obraz butnil vonj po moški kolonjski vodi. Šokirana sem bila, saj takega vonja nisem pričakovala. Vonj je bil izrazito močan in precej neprimeren za masko za obraz.

The masks are nicely packed in a small pot for a single use.The masks are in different colored pots, this one was in an orange one but the mask inside wasn’t orange as I expected. We also get instructions, which are printed on the cardboard that holds the pot. The packaging is therefore well conceived for a single use. The mask itself is a light pastel green color. The mask is not smooth there are some kind of micro particles inside which are not useful for exfoliating so in my opinion superfluous, because they’re rare. When I opened the mask the smell of male cologne bumped into my face. I was shocked because I didn’t expect that kind of scent. The scent is extremely strong and quite inappropriate for a face mask.

Maske je bilo tokrat manj v lončku kot prejšnjič, čeprav je teža ista, tako da sem porabila skoraj vse, kar mi je prav, saj masko težko shranimo, ko je enkrat odprta. Masko bi naj vmasirali na umit in suh obraz, ter pustili stat do 15 minut. Maska se je po določenem času začela sušiti in s tem, ko se je sušila mi je tudi začelo kožo zategovati. Občutek zame ni moteč.

There was less mask in the pot then last time, although the weight is the same, so I used almost all of it and I like that because it’s hard to store the mask once it’s opened. You are supposed to massage the mask onto a clean and dry face and leave it on up to 15 minutes. The mask did start to dry after a while and while drying it also started to tighten the skin. I don’t mind the feeling.

hmmaska3Collage

Maska se umije enostavno, jo je pa potrebno zmehčati z mlačno vodo preden jo začnemo odstranjevati oziroma umivati. Na koži mi je pustila čist občutek, kože mi ni zategovalo, kot pri prejšnji maski in koža se mi ni zmastila dobre tričetrt ure. Maska je dobra a spet nič posebnega in raje posegam po Lushevih maskah. Kupila je več ne bom, predvsem zaradi neprijetnega vonja. Masko sem kupila v Ljubljani v H&M trgovini v Cityparku in zanjo odštela 2,99€. H&M maske za obraz me torej niso najbolj prepričale. A ste že poskusili kakšno? Vam je kakšna posebej všeč?

The mask is easy to wash but you do have to soften it with lukewarm water before we start removing or washing it off. It left a clean feeling on the skin, it didn’t tighten my skin as the previous one did and the skin started getting oily after good three-quarters of an hour. The mask is good but again nothing special and I rather use masks from Lush. I won’t buy it anymore especially because of the unpleasant scent. I bought the mask in Ljubljana in the H&M store in Citypark and paid 2,99€ for it. So the H&M masks didn’t convince me. Have you ever tried any? Did you especially liked any of them?

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.

dontlook2Collage

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.

dontlookCollage

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.

H&M: Charcoal and pumice face mask

hmcCollage

Kar se negovalne kozmetike tiče, so mi najljubše maske za obraz. Najljubše maske pa so mi tiste, s katerimi lahko na koncu naredim še piling obraza. Zato je tudi Lusheva maska Cup O’coffee (ocena tukaj) moja najljubša maska ta trenutek in tudi drugače prisegam na njihove sveže maske za obraz. Maske sem v H&M-u gledala že parkrat, vendar se nikoli nisem odločila za nakup. Tokrat pa sem se vseeno odločila poskusiti.

When it comes to skin care cosmetics, my favorite are face masks. My favorite masks are the ones, that can exfoliate my face in the end as well. That’s also why my favorite mask at the time is Cup O’coffee (review here) from Lush and I otherwise also swear by their fresh face masks. I was looking at the masks in H&M a couple of times, but never decided to buy one. This time I decided to try them anyway.

Kupila sem dve maski in sicer tole z ogljem in plovcem za utrujeno kožo ter eno z blatom mrtvega morja za mešano kožo. Maske so pakirane v majhnem lončku za enkratno uporabo. Torej naj bi bilo tudi maske ravno dovolj za enkrat. Vse maske imajo lončke različnih barv, predvidevam, da na barvo tudi vplivajo sestavine. Ta je bil črni, verjetno zaradi oglja. Zraven prav tako dobimo navodila, ki so natisnjena na kartonasti zloženki v kateri je lonček. Embalaža je torej dobro zamišljena za enkratno uporabo.

I bought two masks, the charcoal and pumice for tired skin and the dead sea mud mask for combination skin.The masks are nicely packed in a small pot for single use. So there should be enough mask for a one time use in the pot. All of the masks have different colored pots, I assume, that the ingredients probably affect the colors. This one was black, presumably because of the charcoal. We also get instructions, which are printed on the cardboard that holds the pot. The packaging is therefore well conceived for a single use.

hmc2Collage

Opazila sem, da je maske več, kot le za enkrat. Ob zmerni uporabi lahko masko nanesete dvakrat oziroma jo delite s prijateljico. Jaz sem jo na debelo namazala na obraz, pa jo je še kar nekaj ostalo v lončku, ampak sem ostanek pač vrgla. Masko bi naj vmasirali na umiti in moker obraz, ter jo pustili na obrazu do 15 minut. Maska se je čez čas začela sušiti, vendar pa se ni popolnoma posušila, ker kot sem omenila, sem jo nanesla kar precej. Občutek na obrazu je dober, kot da bi me maska malo hladila.

I did notice that there is more mask in the pot, than for just one use. If moderately used, you can apply the mask twice or share it with a friend. I applied it really thick on my face and there was still some left in the pot, but I just threw the rest away. We are supposed to massage in the mask on our clean and wet face and leave it on for up to 15 minutes. The mask did start to dry after a while, but didn’t dry completely, because as I mentioned, I applied quite a lot. The feeling on the skin is good, it feels like the mask is cooling.

hmc3Collage

Masko sem po pretečenem času umila in med umivanjem še naredila piling obraza. Umije se enostavno. Na začetku sem res imela dober občutek na koži, koža se mi je zdela izredno čista in sveža, vendar pa je ta občutek izginil po dobrih petih minutah, ko mi je kožo na licih začelo zategovati. Občutek je bil izredno neprijeten in da kožo pomirim sem nanesla Melvitino olje ROSE + (ocena tukaj). Olje je učinkovalo in koža se je pomirila. Predvidevam, da je maska na licih kožo preveč izsušila, saj imam mešan tip kože, na licih trenutno normalen.

After the 15 minutes passed, I washed the mask off and exfoliated as well while washing it. I does wash off easily. In the beginning I had a good feeling on the skin, the skin felt extremely clean and fresh, but the feeling disappeared after five minutes, when my skin started to tighten on the cheeks. It felt extremely uncomfortable and to calm my skin down I applied the Melvita ROSE + oil (review here). The oil worked and the skin calmed down. I assume that the mask dried the skin on my cheeks too much, because I have combination skin type, normal on the cheeks at the time.

Maska je vredu, nič posebnega. Jaz jo zase ne bom več kupila ravno zaradi neprijetnega občutka, če pa jo boste poskusili pa obvezno nanesite kremo za obraz po uporabi. Mogoče bi bila maska boljša za punce z izredno mastno kožo. Masko sem kupila v Ljubljani v H&M trgovini v Cityparku in zanjo odštela 2,99€.

The mask is okay, nothing special. I won’t buy it anymore because of the unpleasant feeling, but if you want to try it out, then don’t forget to apply a face cream after using it. Maybe the mask would be better for girls with extremely oily skin. I bought the mask in Ljubljana in the H&M store in Citypark and paid 2,99€ for it.

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

Melvita: Obogateno šipkovo olje ROSE +

melvitacoll

Nikoli nisem marala olj za obraz. V preteklosti sem imela le enega (dr. Hauschka) in ga nisem marala. To olje pa me je res pritegnilo, saj se mi je zdelo, da bi lahko bilo dobro. Že dejstvo, da bi naj bilo “suho” olje, sem mu štela v plus.

I never liked beauty oils. In the past I only had one (dr. Hauschka) and I didn’t like it. This oil really attracted me, because I though it might be good. The fact, that it is supposed to be a “dry” oil, was a big plus.

IMG_7270

Embalaža je steklena s kapalko, kar se mi zdi odlično, saj imamo res dobro kontrolo nad količino, ki jo želimo. Kapalka dobro deluje, pokrov dobro tesni. Olje je v rožnati škatli in jaz sem jo shranila, saj veliko potujem sem in tja in sem tako bolj pomirjena, da se ne bo nič polomilo. Čeprav je embalaž zelo lepa, pa ni najboljša za potovanja, saj se v primeru, da je ne zavarujemo dobro, lahko polomi.  Embalaže je, kot sem že omenila, zelo šik in meni je všeč.

The packaging is glass with a dropper, which I find great, because we have great control over the amount that we want. The dropper works nicely, the lid closes tightly. The oil is in a pinkish box, that I kept, because I travel  a lot and this way I’m a bit more sure, that it will not break. Although the packaging is really nice it’s not best for traveling, because in case we don’t protect it well, it can break. The packaging is, as I already mentioned, really chic and I like it.

IMG_7271

Preidimo na olje. Ker sem obupna v opisovanju vonjev, bom tudi to težko opisala. Olje vsebuje obogateno šipkovo olje, zato sem tudi pričakovala bolj cvetlični vonj. Meni diši sicer cvetlično, ampak nežno cvetlično, rahlo bolj sveže. Če potegnem črto lahko rečem, da meni osebno diši zelo lepo. 😀 Nisem uporabna, saj vem. 😀

Let’s move on to the oil. Because I’m terrible in describing scents, I’m going to have a problem describing this one as well. The oil contains enriched rosehip oil so I expected a more flowery scent. To me it does smell flowery, but in a delicate way, a little bit fresher. If I draw a line, I can say that to me it smells really nice. 😀 I’m not useful, I know. 😀

IMG_7273

Olje sem prvič nanesla na vlažno kožo in mi ni bilo všeč, saj se olje ni skoraj nič vpilo in koža je ostala mastna. Tega pa ne prenesem. Zato sem drugič olje nanesla na suho kožo in šele takrat mi je postalo malo bolj všeč. Olje se še vedno ne vpije popolnoma, ampak recimo da se vpije 70-80%. Torej nekaj olja ostane na koži, ampak to me toliko ne moti. Jaz olje vedno uporabim zvečer. Sama nanesem na obraz 3 kapljice, na čelo in na vsako lice po eno. Če imate bolj suho kožo lahko mirne volje nanesete več (sama imam mešano kožo). Olje se lahko tudi uporablja kot obnavljalna maska ali pred jutranjo nego.

I first applied the oil to damp skin and I didn’t like it, because the oil barely absorbed into the skin and the skin stayed oily. And I can’t stand that. So the second time I used it, I applied it to dry skin and only then I started liking it. The oil still doesn’t completely absorb into the skin, but let’s say it absorbs 70-80%. So some oil remains on the skin, but I don’t mind that. I always use the oil in the evening. I apply 3 drops to my face, on the forehead and one on each cheek. If you have more dry skin you can easily apply more (I have combination skin type). You can use the oil as a repairing mask or before the morning care routine as well.

IMG_7276

Melvita trdi, da bi naj olje navlažilo in obnovilo kožo, gube in gubice bi naj bile videti manjše, koža gladkejša. Lahko rečem, da je koža res lepša, gladkejša, da dobro nahrani in navlaži kožo, tudi obnovi jo hitro (predvsem po kakih aknah). Uporabljam ga vsak večer in moja koža je dejansko veliko bolj zdrava, sijoča, veliko manj “izbruhov” imam na obrazu. Po dobrih dveh tednih uporabe sem se popolnoma zaljubila v tole olje in si več življenja ne predstavljam brez. Ker porabim res samo 3 kapljice na dan mi bo 30ml olja dovolj za celo leto, zato tudi cena, ki je 37,60€ ni pretirana. Olje prav tako vsebuje kompleks neolastine, ki pomaga delovati proti gubam in gubicam. Jaz olje priporočam vsem, mlajšim, starejšim, vsem, ki si želite lepo kožo. Za več informacij pojdite na Melvitino spletno stran.

Melvita states, that the oil will moisturize and restore the skin, wrinkles and fine lines will appear smaller, the skin smoother. I can say that the skin is really looking better, smoother, it moisturizes and nourishes the skin, it also repairs it fast (especially after any acne). I use it every night and my skin is actually looking healthier, shinier, with a lot less “breakouts” on my face. After two weeks of using it I totally fell in love with this oil and can’t imagine my life without it. Since I apply only 3 drops a day, the 30ml of oil will last me the whole year, so the price, which is 37,60€ is not that much. The oil also contains complex neolastine, that helps prevent wrinkles and fine lines. I recommend this oil to everyone, young, older, anyone that want’s beautiful skin. For more information, go to the Melvita website.

Lush: Cup O’coffee

IMG_6631

Kje naj začnem? Mogoče pri tem, da je ta maska zamenjala mojo najljubšo svežo masko od Lusha in sicer Brazened Honey, ki je bila z mano in ob meni zadnjih 8 let? Ali naj začnem pri tem, da se je to zgodilo že po prvi uporabi? Ali pa, da sem popolnoma zaljubljena in predana samo še tej maski? Vseeno je kje bom začela, saj je vse to res. 🙂 Na kratko sem jo omenila tudi v moji negi obraza, katero najdete tukaj.

Where do I start? Maybe at the fact that this mask substituted my favorite fresh face mask from Lush, Brazened Honey, which was with me and by me for the last 8 years? Or should I start at the fact, that this happened after the first time I used it? Or maybe that I’m totally in love and dedicated to this mask only? It doesn’t matter where I start, because everything is true. 🙂 I did shortly mention it in my skincare routine post, that you can find here.

IMG_6633

Lush spremljam tedensko in takrat tudi preverim novosti. Takoj, ko sem zagledala to masko na spletni strani, se mi je zdela zanimiva, saj imam zelo rada kavo. Ob naslednjem obisku  trgovine sem jo morala samo povohati in šla je z menoj. Maska namreč diši kot prava turška kava z žličko sladkorja. Če vam kava ne diši, potem predlagam, da se maski izognete. Maska je temno rjave barve z mletimi kavnimi zrni, ki so idealni za piling. Je precej gosta in malenkost lepljiva.

I check the Lush site weekly for any new products. As soon as I saw this mask on the website it seemed very interesting, because I really like coffee. I just had to smell it, the next time I visited the shop, and I bought it. The mask smells like true Turkish coffee with a tea spoon of sugar. If you don’t like the smell of coffee, I advise you avoid it. The mask is dark brown with ground coffee beans which are ideal for exfoliation. It is pretty thick and a bit tacky.

IMG_6635

Nanesem jo na cel obraz, izognem se le predelu pod očmi. Čeprav me ponavadi moti, če se maska ne posuši na mojem obrazu, me pri tej maski to niti najmanj ne moti. Maska se torej ne posuši, ker je gosta pa tudi ne polzi po obrazu, ampak ostane na svojem mestu. Po 15 – 20 minutah začnem z vlažno dlanjo masko odstranjevati in s tem naredim še piling. Zrna so dovolj velika in ravno prav “groba”, da učinkovito opravijo svoje delo. Jaz imam rada bolj grobe pilinge, zato z roko kar precej močno pritisnem ob kožo, da je piling učinek še večji. Če ne marate grobih pilingov pa lahko le narahlo pritisnete ob kožo in tako umijete masko z obraza. Umivalnik je potrebno na koncu umiti, saj se mleta kavna zrna rada naberejo na dnu umivalnika. Vonj se na koži obdrži kar dolgo časa, 3-4 ure približno.

I apply it to the whole face and avoid only the eye area. Although it usually bothers me if the mask doesn’t dry on my face, I really don’t mind with this one. So the mask doesn’t dry, but because it’s really thick it doesn’t slide around the face, it stays where you apply it. After 15 – 20 minutes I start to remove it with a moist palm and I exfoliate while doing so. The grains are big enough and “rough” enough to effectively do their job. I do like more rough exfoliators so I press pretty hard with my palm against my skin, so the exfoliating effect is bigger. If you don’t like rough exfoliators you can press slightly against the skin and wash the mask of the face that way. You do need to wash the washbasin at the end, because the grained coffee beans do tend to gather on the bottom of the washbasin. The scent stays on the skin for quite some time, approximately 3-4 hours.

Koža je po uporabi mehka, navlažena, nahranjena in sijoča, tako da ponavadi nanesem samo kremo za oči, ostalo pa preskočim ali pa grem čez z losjonom. Jaz sem mojo masko porabila v dobrem mesecu, ena majhna embalaža mi je dovolj za 5-6 krat. Druga me že čaka in veselim se dneva, ko jo bom spet uporabila. Za manjšo masko (100g) boste odšteli 10,50€, za večjo (250g) pa 16,95€.

The skin is really soft, moisturized, nourished and shiny so I usually apply eye cream only and skip the rest or go with a lotion all over. I used my mask in about a month, one small packaging is enough for 5-6 times. The second one is already waiting for me and I look forward to the day that I use it again. You will pay 10,50€ for the smaller mask (100g) and 16,95€ for the bigger one (250g).

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 🙂

P.s. čez vikend bom dodala še par fotografij, saj jih nisem še utegnila narediti.

P.s. I will make a few more photographs over the weekend, because I didn’t have time yet.
