Kako čistim čopiče + GIVEAWAY

img_8824

Velikokrat me sprašujejo kako čistim svoje čopiče za ličenje, zato sem se odločila na to temo napisati kar eno krajšo objavo. Kratko tudi zaradi tega, ker čiščenje čopičev ni nič posebnega ali zahtevnega. 🙂 Za lažje razumevanje pa sem posnela tudi kratek video v katerem lahko vidite kako jih sama čistim.

Often I’m asked how I clean my make-up brushes and that’s why I decided to write a short post about it. Short because there’s nothing special or complicated about cleaning brushes. 🙂 For better understanding I also made a short video that shows you how I clean them.

S čim čistim čopiče? Če je nekaj dobro za odstranjevanje ličil z mojega obraza, potem je tudi dobro za čiščenje mojih čopičev. Tako za čiščenje čopičev v veliki večini uporabljam Nuxe Reve de Miel gel za umivanje obraza, ki je nežen do mojih čopičev in jih dobro očisti. Ne dolgo nazaj pa sem se odločila poskusiti še z milom za čiščenje čopičev Barbara Hofmann, ki sem ga kupila v Mullerju in zanj odštela okoli 10€. Pred tem sem za čiščenje čopičev prav tako uporabljala katerokoli navadno trdo milo, gledala sem le, da je bilo za občutljivo kožo in neodišavljeno.

What do I use to clean my brushes? If something is good to clean the make-up from my face then it’s also good enough to clean my brushes. So for cleaning my brushes I mostly use my Nuxe Reve de Miel facial cleansing gel which is gentle to my brushes and also cleans them well. Not so long ago I decided to try a brush cleaning soap from Barbara Hofmann that I bought in Muller and paid around 10€. Before that I also used any regular solid soap that was for sensitive skin and fragrance free.

Za samo čiščenje čopičev sem prej uporabljala dlan, ampak ker se je število čopičev povečalo, moje dlani pa so kar občutljive, sem se odločila kupiti podlage za čiščenje. Eno je v obliki jajčka, ki se natakne na prste in ima precej bolj globoke brazde, drugo pa je malenkost večje, se lahko prisesa na umivalnik ali drži med prsti in ima bolj nežne brazde. Prvo zato uporabljam za čopiče za obraz, drugo pa za manjše čopiče.

I used to use my palm for cleaning the brushes but because the number of my brushes has increased and my hands are quite sensitive I decided to buy a widget for cleaning. One is shaped as an egg that I put on my fingers and has deeper creases, the other one is a bit larger and can be suctioned to the sink or you can hold it between your fingers and has more delicate creases. That’s why I use the first one for face brushes and the other one for smaller brushes.

Kadar umivam čopiče za obraz s katerimi uporabljam kremne oziroma tekoče izdelke uporabim vročo vodo iz pipe, saj gre tako hitreje. Sem pa pri tem toliko bolj pazljiva da vroča voda ne pride do lepila, ki drži ščetine skupaj, saj bi se stopilo in s tem bi tudi uničila čopič. Na koncu, ko je čopič čisti uporabim mlačno vodo in takrat ga obrnem navpično in previdno izperem milo med ščetinami. Kot vidite na posnetku sem s čopičem, ki ima sintetične ščetine (1. čopič) bolj “groba”, s tistimi z naravnimi oziroma mešanimi ščetinami (2. in 3. čopič) pa malo bolj previdna. Čopič milim dokler pena ni čista in na koncu ga vedno dobro umijem ter sem pozorna da se več nikjer ne peni.

When I’m cleaning face brushes that I use with cream or liquid products I use hot tap water because it’s faster this way. I’m a bit more careful when doing that so that the hot water doesn’t melt the adhesive that holds the bristles together because I would ruin the brush that way. In the end, when the brush is clean, I use lukewarm water and turn the brush vertically and gently wash the soap between the bristles. As you can see in the video I’m more “rough” with the brush with synthetic bristles (1. brush) and more careful with the brush with natural or mixed bristles (2. and 3. brush). I put soap on the brush until the foam isn’t clean and in the end I always clean it well and I’m careful that it’s not foaming anywhere.

Ko čopič operem ga tudi podrgnem po čisti brisači, da odstranim čim več vode iz njega. Ko vse čopiče očistim jih položim vodoravno na čisto brisačo in sama jih ponavadi položim na pralni stroj tako, da se ščetine ne dotikajo brisače in se tako tudi prej posušijo. Pustim jih čez noč in drugi dan so čopiči ponavadi suhi in pripravljeni na uporabo. Nikoli čopičev ne puščajte navpično postavljenih s ščetinami obrnjenimi navzgor. Če imate možnost ali imate stojalo za sušenje čopičev, jih vedno obrnite s ščetinami navdzol, da voda odteka iz čopiča.

When I wash the brush I also rub it on a clean towel to remove as much water from it. When I clean all the brushes I place them horizontally on a clean towel and I usually put them on a washing machine so that the bristles don’t touch the towel and they dry much faster. I let them dry overnight and the next day they are usually ready to use. Never leave the brushes vertically positioned with the bristles facing upwards. If you have the option or you have a rack for drying brushes, always position them with bristles facing downwards so the water drips from the brush.

To bi bilo vse kar se tiče čiščenja čopičev. Enostavno kajne? 🙂 Sama čistim čopiče za nanašanje tekočega pudra bolj pogosto (najmanj enkrat na mesec), ostale pa po potrebi. Ker bi rada, da tudi vi skrbite za svoje čopiče sem vam pripravila majhno NAGRADNO IGRO.

That would be all as far as cleaning the brushes go. Easy right? 🙂 I clean my brushes for applying foundation more often (at least once a month) and the others when necessary. Because I want you to take care of your brushes I prepared a small GIVEAWAY.

Melvita: Hydrating Milky Mist + GIVEAWAY

IMG_7848

Tole mlečno meglico iz linije Nectar de Roses oziroma Rožni nektar sem slučajno zagledala v Mullerju in hitro me je zamikala, saj mi zadnje čase izredno dišijo izdelki z vrtnicami. Po kakem tednu pa me je moj dragi presenetil in mi jo kupil. 😉

I saw this milky mist from the line Nectar de Roses accidentally in Muller and was intrigued quite fast, because lately I’ve been loving products with rose scent. After about a week my honey surprised me and bought it for me. 😉

IMG_7533

Meglica je v prozorni plastični embalaži s špricalko. Embalaža je učinkovita in priročna. Ker je v plastenki je super za potovanja, saj ni skrbi, da bi se zlomila. Sama meglica je mlečno bele barve. Kot sem že omenila diši po vrtnicah. Vonj je precej intenziven, zato vam meglico odsvetujem, če ne marate vonja vrtnic. Vonj se dolgo obdrži na koži, vendar pa se po pol ure malo razdiši in vonj več ni tako močan. Kakorkoli, meni odlično diši.

The mist comes in a plastic packaging with a spray. The packaging is effective and convenient. Because it’s in a plastic bottle it’s great for traveling because you don’t have to worry about it breaking. The mist itself is milky white. As I mentioned already it smells like roses. The scent is pretty intense, so I don’t advise it if you don’t like the scent of roses. The scent lingers on the skin quite long but after about half an hour it’s not as strong anymore. However, I love the scent.

Melvita trdi, da ima meglica lahko teksturo in formulo, obogateno s cvetno vodico vrtnice, zagotavlja 24 urno vlaženje in takojšen občutek svežine. Meglico sem poskusila takoj, ko sem jo dobila, saj me je koža na nogah srbela, ker je bila izredno suha. Meglica se z lahkoto razmaže po koži, vendar pa postane po tem rahlo lepljiva, kar pripisujem glicerinu na drugem mestu med sestavinami. Lepljiv občutek izgine po par minutah in ostane navlažena in dišeča koža. Meglica je v mojem primeru kožo v trenutku pomirila in sama sem bila presenečena nad tem, saj tega iskreno nisem pričakovala.

Melvita states that the mist has a light texture and formula enriched with rose floral water, providing 24 hour hydration and an immediate feeling of freshness. I tried the mist as soon as I got it because the skin on my legs way extremely dry and itchy. The body mist is easily spreadable on the skin but it leaves a sticky feeling after, which is probably because the glycerin is second on the ingredients list. The sticky feeling disappears after a few minutes and you’re left with moisturized and scented skin. The mist calmed my skin down instantly and I was very surprised by that because I honestly didn’t expect that.

Meglico sem nesla s seboj tudi na dopust in z veseljem sem jo uporabljala čez dan in zvečer. Tudi uporaba pod oblačili ni problematična, saj se izdelek popolnoma vpije v roku 5 minut. Meglico lahko tudi hranite v hladilniku in tako je občutek svežine še bolj intenziven. Meglica je kožo učinkovito navlažila in pomirila tudi takrat, ko sem se predolgo izpostavljala soncu.

I took the mist with me on vacation and I was happy to use it during the day and in the evening. Using it under clothing isn’t a problem because the product is completely absorbed within 5 minutes. You can also store the body mist in the refrigerator so the feeling of freshness is even more intense. The mist effectively hydrated and calmed the skin even when I was lying out in the sun for too long.

Meglico priporočam vsem, ki ne marate težkih krem in losijonov poleti, ampak imate raje nekaj lahkega, kar se hitro vpije in za sabo pusti navlaženo kožo. Meglico je moj dragi kupil v Mullerju in zanjo odštel 18,30€ za 150ml, ki bo po moje dovolj za čez poletje.

I recommend the mist to all that don’t like heavy creams and lotions in the summer but prefer something lighter that absorbs quickly and leaves a hydrated skin behind. My honey bought the mist in Muller and paid 18,30€ for 150ml which will be in my opinion enough for the summer.

Ker spet govorim o liniji Nectar de Roses imam tokrat tudi nagradno igro za vas. Ko sem bila na Melvitinem dogodku (poročilo tukaj) sem v darilnem paketu dobila tudi balzam za ustnice v lončku iz iste linije, katerega že imam in sem ga tudi že ocenila (ocena tukaj). Ker dveh balzamov ne potrebujem, sem se odločila tega deliti z vami. Vse kar morate narediti je, da vpišete svojo e-pošto tukaj na blogu pri gumbu “FOLLOW”, ki se nahaja na desni strani.

Because once again I’m talking about the Nectar de Roses line I have a giveaway ready for you as well. When I was at the Melvita event (report here) I got a lip balm from the same line that I already own in the gift package and I also already reviewed it (review here). Because I don’t need two lip balms I decided to share this one with you. All you have to do is enter your e-mail here on my blog by clicking on the “FOLLOW” button that is located on the right.
