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.

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?

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.

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.

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: 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.

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.
