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.

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.

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?

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

Melvita: 3 roses nectar lip balm

Kot pravi odvisnik, post o moji “odvisnosti” najdete tukaj, sem nedolgo nazaj kupila tale balzam za ustnice, ker sem ga enostavno morala poskusiti. 🙂 Na splošno, ko se gre za Melvitino kozmetiko, sem ali zaljubljena v izdelek ali ga niti malo ne maram. Na srečo sem v večino izdelkov, ki sem jih poskusila popolnoma zaljubljena. To je prvi izdelek, ki mi je sicer zelo všeč, nisem pa (še) zaljubljena.

Like a true addict, you can find the post about my “addiction” here, I bought, not so long ago, this lip balm, because I just had to try it. 🙂 In general, when it comes to Melvita cosmetics, I either love or hate the product. Luckily I love the majority of the products that I tried. This is the first product I really like, but I’m not (yet) in love.

Balzam za ustnice je v belem lončku z rožnato pisavo in z zlatim pokrovom na navoj. Embalaža mi je všeč in zdi se mi kvalitetna. Balzam je nežno rožnate barve, kar se mi zdi edino prav, saj že samo ime nakazuje na to. Tudi vonj je nežen in blag, po vrtnicah. Čeprav vonja po vrtnicah v kozmetiki ne maram preveč, mi ta prav diši.

The balm comes in a white jar with pink lettering and a screw on gold lid. I like the packaging and it looks to be good quality. The balm is iridescent shade of pink, which seems only right, as the name suggests it. Even the scent is delicate, it smells like roses. Although I don’t like the scent of roses in cosmetics too much, I really like this one.

Melvita trdi, da balzam navlaži, zgladi in zmehča kožo ustnic. Navlaži in zmehča jo res, ne morem pa trditi, da jo zgladi. Tekstura je trda a se ob stiku, zaradi toplote prsta, zmehča. Jaz jo ponavadi zajamem kar z nohtom, nanesem in razmažem po ustnicah. Balzam ni lepljiv, zato tudi ne dolgo obstojen. Kljub temu, če ne pijem ali jem, ostane na ustnicah do dve uri. Ustnic ne obarva, ampak jim da zdrav sijaj. Sestavine so zelo dobre, saj je na prvih dveh mestih karitejevo maslo in kokosovo olje, vsebuje pa še druga olja in izvlečke vrtnic. Meni je zelo všeč, ampak mojega medenega balzama od Nuxa še ni prehitel. Vseeno ga zelo rada uporabljam, saj sem se že naveličala vonja medu.

Melvita claims, that the balm moisturizes, smoothes and softens the lips. It does moisturize and soften the lips, but I can’t say that it smoothes them. The texture is firm, but the warmth of the finger softens it. I usually scoop it out with my fingernail, apply and smear it all over the lips. The balm is not sticky/tacky so therefore not long-lasting. Nevertheless if I don’t drink or eat, it does stay on the lips up to two hours. It doesn’t color the lips, it just gives them a healthy shine. The ingredients are very good, shea butter and coconut oil on the first two spots and it contains other oils and rose extracts. I like it a lot, but my Nuxe honey balm is still better. However I really like using it, because I’m tired of the honey scent.

Balzam torej priporočam, saj je kvaliteten in dobro opravi svoje delo. Zanj sem odštela 12,70€, kupila sem ga v Müllerju.

I do recommend the lip balm, because it’s great quality and it does the job. I paid 12,70€ and I bought it in Müller.
