EOS Lip balm

img_8665

To je spet eden takšnih izdelkov, ki sem si ga želela zelo dolgo vendar pa si ga nisem nikoli kupila, dokler ga nisem zagledala v drogeriji v Sloveniji. Seveda sem takoj zagrabila priložnost, da ga preizkusim. Če pa me spremljate že dalj časa pa tudi veste, da sem obsedena z balzami za utnice. 🙂

This is again one of those products I wanted for a long time but never bought it until I saw it in a drugstore in Slovenia. Of course I took that chance to try it out. If you follow me for a longer time then you also know that I’m obsessed with lip balms. 🙂

Embalaža je drugačna, kot smo jih vajeni pri balzamih. Balzam ni v stiku, ampak je v plastičnem jajčku. Odpira se enostavno in tudi tesni dobro. Embalaža je mat in tudi na otip je prijetna ter ne drsi v rokah. Sam balzam je v obliki polovice jajčka. Nanos je enostaven, kljub drugačni obliki. Jajčka je seveda bolj nepraktična kot tipičen stik, saj zavzame malo več prostora a če uporabljete torbico vas to ne bo motilo. Sama balzama ne nosim s seboj, ampak ga uporabljam v glavnem doma.

The packaging is different then what we’re used to with lip balms. The balm is not in a stick but in a plastic egg. It opens easily and closes good. The packaging is matte and nice to the touch as it isn’t slippery in the hands. The balm itself is shaped like half of an egg. The application is easy despite the different shape. The egg is of course more impractical then a typical stick because it takes up more space but if you use a handbag the this will not bother you. I myself don’t carry the balm with me because I use it at home.

Sweet Mint

EOS (Evolution of Smooth) trdi, da so njihovi balzami za ustnice 95% organski, 100% naravni, brez vazelina in parabenov. Vsebujejo vitamin E, karitejevo maslo in jojobino olje, ki poskrbijo za mehke, navlažene in gladke ustnice. Sestavine so res odlične.

EOS (Evolution of Smooth) claims that their lip balms are 95% organic, 100% natural, paraben and petrolatum free. They contain vitamin E, shea butter and jojoba oil that keep your lips soft, moisturized and smooth. The ingredients are really excellent.

Ker je pri nas na voljo kar nekaj različic, sem se odločila poskusiti sladko meto (Sweet Mint) s katero se mi je zdelo, da ne morem zgrešiti. In res je bilo tako. Balzam je v mint embalaži in tudi nasplošno je barva embalaže, jajčka, odvisna od vonja/okusa balzama. Balzam zaradi mete na začetku ustnice rahlo hladi, čez čas pa se le-ta razdiši in ostanejo le negovane ustnice. Ker sem iskreno navdušena nad balzamom sem v Avstriji (izbira tam je namreč večja) kupila še balzam z okusom melone (Honeysuckle Honeydew), ki diši res lepo po meloni. Balzam je lepo mazljiv in tudi prijeten na ustnicah. Na ustnicah se obdrži kar nekaj časa, seveda je vse odvisno od tega koliko pijete in jeste.

Because there are a few different versions in our stores I decided to try Sweet Mint because I felt I can’t go wrong with that one. And so it was. The balm is in a mint packaging and generally the color of the packaging, egg, depends on the scent/flavor of the balm.  The balm cools the lips slightly in the beginning because of the mint but after a while it’s feeling decreases and you’re left with nourished lips. Because I’m honestly impressed with the balm I bought another one in Austria (the choice there is bigger) with the melon flavor (Honeysuckle Honeydew) that smells really nice and like melon. The balm is nicely spreadable and also really pleasant on the lips. It stays quite some time on the lips but that depends on how much you eat and drink.

Honeysuckle Honeydew

Odkar sem kupila tale balzam drugega niti pogledala nisem in če bo tudi pozimi tako uspešno negoval moje ustnice se zna zgoditi, da bo prehitel mojega trenutno najljubšega od Nuxe-a. :O Za balzam boste plačali okoli 6€ za 7g, kupite pa ga lahko v kateremkoli Mullerju ali D&M-u. V Avstriji v Douglasu boste našli malo večjo izbiro okusov, prav tako imajo kreme za roke in telo. Jaz balzam priporočam!

Since I bought this lip balm I haven’t even looked at another one and if it’s going to successfully nourish my lips in the winter time as well then it’s possible that it will substitute my current favorite from Nuxe. You will pay around 6€ for 7g and you can buy it in any Muller or D&M. You will find a bit bigger choice of flavors in Austria in Douglas and they also have hand and body lotions as well. I recommend the lip balm!

L.O.V cosmetics: Caring Volume Gloss – Mystic Sand

IMG_8604

Odkar imam dovolj dolge lase, da jih lahko spnem v čop, se spet navdušujem nad lip glossi. Čeprav me ob prvem obisku L.O.V stojala v Mullerju ni navdušilo nič, pa sem si drugič vzela malo več časa in tako tudi našla tale skriti dragulj. L.O.V bi naj bila bolj elegantna sestra Essence in Catrice kozmetike, če ne drugače pa definitivno po izgledu oziroma embalaži.

Since my hair is long enough so I can tie it in a ponytail I’m becoming more and more enthusiastic about lip glosses again. Although the first time I visited the L.O.V stand in Muller nothing really impressed me, I took a bit more time on the second visit and that’s how I found this hidden jewel. L.O.V is supposed to be the more elegant sister of Essence and Catrice cosmetics if not otherwise then definitely in appearance or packaging.

Embalaža je oglata a zaobljena prozorna tuba s tipičnim aplikatorjem  z gobico. Gobica zajame dovolj produkta za cele ustnice in ga tudi lepo razmaže. L.O.V trdi, da daje glos eleganten sijoč finiš in nežno nego v enem s pomočjo Tsubaki olja in vitamina E. Mystic Sand odtenek je rjavkasto  kožne (nude) barve z dodatki rožnate. Ker se zadnje čase navdušujem nad takimi odtenki, je tale bil kot naročen. Je precej pigmentiran, tako da moje ustnice popolnoma prekrije. Je nežnega vonja, ki ga na ustnicah ne zaznam.

The packaging is an angular rounded transparent tube with a typical doe-foot applicator. The sponge captures enough product for the whole lips and also smears is easily. L.O.V states that the gloss gives an elegant shiny finish and gentle care in one with the help of Tsubaki oil and vitamin E. Mystic Sand shade is a brown nude color with hints of rose. Because lately I’ve been really into these kind of shades this one was on cue. It’s pretty pigmented so it covers my lips completely. It has a subtle smell that I can’t smell once on the lips.

Glos je  kremast, izredno udoben in lahek na ustnicah, kar je najbolj pomembno pa je to, da ni lepljiv. Daje izredno lep lesk ustnicam, ki izgledajo skoraj mokre. Ker ni lepljiv seveda tudi ni dolgo obstojen. Na meni je zdržal dobro uro, uro pa pol, v primeru da nisem jedla. Zelo rada ga kombiniram z Essence Longlasting barvico za ustnice v odtenku 05 Lovely Frappuccino. Ustnic mi ne izsuši, ampak jih celo navlaži malenkost.

The gloss is creamy, really comfortable and light on the lips and most importantly it’s not sticky. It gives the lips an extremely beautiful shine that looks almost wet. Because it’s not sticky it of course isn’t long-lasting. It lasted about an good hours, hour and a half on me in case I didn’t eat. I love to combine it with the Essence Longlasting lip liner in the shade 05 Lovely Frappuccino. It doesn’t dry out my lips but it even slightly moisturizes them.

Jaz sem nad glosom in nad odtenkom navdušena, že planiram nakup še kakšnega. L.O.V lahko kupite v večini Mullerjev po Sloveniji, zanj pa boste odšteli 5,99€ kar se mi zdi zelo ugodno za tako kvaliteten glos. Ali so kakšni drugi izdelki od njih, ki mi jih priporočate?

I am extremely impressed by the gloss and the shade and I’m already planning to buy some more. You can buy L.O.V in most Mullers in Slovenia and you’ll pay 5,99€ for it which is a great price for a gloss this great in quality. Are there any other products from them that you recommend?

Avene: Thermal water

IMG_8241

S termalno vodo me je par let nazaj spoznala sestra, ko mi je podarila podoben izdelek. Spomnim se, da sem uživala ko sem si pršila s termalno vodo po obrazu v poletni vročini. Od takrat si velikokrat privoščim termalno vodo v spreju.

My sister introduced me to thermal water a few years ago when she introduced me to a similar product. I remember enjoying spritzing the thermal water all over my face in the summer heat. Since then I often treat myself with a spray thermal water.

Avene termalna voda je pakirana v beli visoki pločevinki z oranžnim (in črnim) napisom, podobno kot lak za lase. Sprej razprši vodo izredno fino, čutiti je, kot da vam meglica pada na obraz. Sprej zelo dobro deluje. Termalno vodo lahko kupite v mini različici 50ml ali v večji embalaži (150ml in 300ml). 150 ml bo dovolj za čez poletje, odvisno kako pogosto jo uporabljate seveda.

Avene Thermal water is packaged in a tall white tin with orange (and black) lettering, similar to a hairspray. The spray spritzes the water really fine and it feels like a mist is falling on your face. The spray works really well. You can buy the thermal water in a mini size 50ml or in a bigger packaging (150ml and 300ml). 150ml will be enough for over the summer, depending on how often you use it of course.

IMG_8242

Avene trdi, da ima njihova termalna voda potrjeno pomirjujoče delovanje ter da je le-ta primerna za atopično kožo, mastno kožo in kožo nagnjeno k rdečici. Prav tako naj bi bila primerna za nego kože po opeklinah, operativnih posegih, vnetjih, itd.

Avene claims that their thermal water is clinically shown to calm and to be suitable for atopic, oily skin and skin prone to redness. It’s also supposed to be suitable for soothing after skin burns, surgeries, infections, etc.

Sama hranim termalno vodo vedno v hladilniku, pozimi ali poleti, saj mi je občutek hladne meglice na obrazu izredno všeč. Špricam ponavadi iz razdalje okrog 20 cm in pošpricam v obliki črke X čez obraz. To je čisto dovolj. Poleti termalno vodo uporabljam predvsem po izpostavljenosti soncu, saj kožo dejansko pomiri. Termalno vodo uporabljam na čistem obrazu in tudi čez ličila, saj voda ličil ne razmaže (v primeru, da se z vodo ne polivate 🙂 ). Ostanek vode je dobro po par minutah popivnati, ampak ker nanesem res majhno količino, potrebe po tem nimam.

I myself always keep the thermal water in the refrigerator in the summer or winter, because I really like the feeling of a cold mist on my face. I spray it usually from a distance of about 20cm and spray it in a letter X shape across the face. That’s enough. In the summer I use the thermal water after being exposed to the sun, because it actually calms the skin. I use the thermal water on a clean face or over make-up, because the water doesn’t smudge the make-up (in case you don’t splash yourself with the water 🙂 ). It’s good to pat dry the rest of the water but since I use a small amount I don’t have the need to do that.

aveneCollage

Pozimi oziroma v času kurilne sezone, ko imam kožo bolj suho kot ponavadi, uporabljam meglico za osvežitev in navlažitev. Iz prve roke lahko torej potrdim, da Avene termalna voda kožo res pomiri in tudi navlaži, uporabljate pa jo lahko čez cel dan in čez celo leto. Sama imam doma 150ml sprej in vedno enega majhnega v torbici, za osvežitev čez dan. Avene termalno vodo lahko kupite v spletni lekarni Lekarnar.com in v drugih lekarnah. Ali mi priporočate še kaj drugega od Avene kozmetike?

In winter or during the heating season when my skin is more dry than usual I use the mist to refresh and moisten the skin. I can therefore confirm, firsthand, that the Avene Thermal water really does calm and moisturize the skin and you can use it throughout the day and year. I have a 150ml bottle at home and a small one as well in my bag for refreshment during the day. You can purchase the Avene Thermal water in an online pharmacy Lekarnar.com and in other pharmacies. Do you recommend anything else from Avene cosmetics?
