Nuxe: Huile Prodigieuse

IMG_7956

Olja mi niso najbolj pri srcu, čeprav imam precej suho kožo na telesu, saj ne maram mastnega občutka na koži. Kljub temu, sem bila tega olja vesela. Imela sem že olje od Nuxea z bleščicami in ni mi bilo všeč, saj je bilo za moj občutek veliko preveč bleščic in pri uporabi so se zalepile na dlan in le s težavo sem jih umila. Prav tako pa je to olje kultno in vesela sem, da ga imam v svoji kolekciji.

Although I have quite dry skin I don’t like oils too much, because I don’t like the greasy feeling on my skin. Nevertheless I was happy to get this oil. I’ve had a Nuxe oil with shimmer before and I didn’t like it, because it was too shimmery for my taste and the shimmer stuck to my palm while using it and I had difficulty washing it off. Also this is a cult oil and I’m happy to have it in my collection.

Moje olje ima embalažo iz omejene kolekcije in čeprav je embalaža izredno seksi in čudovita pa me moti, ker ne vidim koliko produkta je še ostalo. Drugače pa izredno šik črna steklenička z zlatim pokrovom in zlato špricalko ter z zlatim napisom. Špricalka dobro deluje. Všečno. 🙂

My oil is in a limited edition package and although the packaging is extremely sexy and gorgeous it bothers me that I can’t see how much product is left inside. Otherwise it’s an extremely chic black bottle with a gold cap and spray and gold lettering. The spray works well. Cute. 🙂

Nuxe trdi, da je Huile Prodigieuse suho olje z edinstveno koncentracijo dragocenih rastlinskih olj in vitamina E, ki hrani, obnavlja in mehča kožo obraza, telesa in lase. Edinstvena mešanica 6 dragocenih rastlinskih olj (lešnik, makadamija, boreč, šentjanževka, kamelija, sladki mandelj) in nežne dišave koži podajo žametni občutek, lasje postanejo svileni, vidnost strij se zmanjša.

Nuxe states that Huile Prodigieuse is a dry oil with a unique concentration of valuable plant oils and vitamin E which nourishes, repairs and softens the skin of the face, body and hair. The unique blend of 6 precious plant oils (Hazelnut, Macadamia, Borage, St. John’s Wort, Camellia, Sweet Almond) and delicate fragrance leave the skin feeling velvety, hair becomes silky, the visibility of stretch marks is reduced.

To da je olje lahko suho je zame največja uganka, saj se mi zdi totalno nasprotje, vendar pa sem že doživela da je bilo olje “suho”. Tako je tudi s tem oljem. Ob zmernem nanosu se olje hitro vpije in ne obsedi na koži. A pozor, pri večjih količinah se ne vpije, ampak ostane na koži. Pri meni se je zgodilo podobno, verjetno zato, ker sem ga uporabljala v pasji vročini (35°C in več) in se je olje izločalo skupaj s potom. Olje sem uporabljala le v primeru, ko sem imela oblečene kratke hlače, obleko, majčko brez rokavov in ga nanesla na noge in roke. Olje se lepo razmaže, kožo nahrani in da čudovit sijaj.

For me the greatest enigma is how can an oil be dry, because I find that to be totally opposite, but I have experienced an oil being “dry”. So it was with this one as well. When used moderately the oil absorbs quickly and doesn’t sit on the skin. But beware, when using too much the oil doesn’t absorb, but it stays on the skin. I had a similar experience, probably because I used it in intense heat (35°C and more) and the oil secreted with the sweat. I used the oil only when I wore shorts, dress, sleeveless shirt and applied it to my legs and arms. The oils spreads nicely, it nourishes the skin and gives a wonderful glow.

Če preidem k vonju. Meni diši čudovito, po poletju. Je rahlo sladek, na trenutke me spominja na olje/kremo za sončenje, ampak bolj prefinjeno. Zaznam oreščke. Občasno si malo olja pošpricam na roko samo zaradi vonja. Ker je vonj precej močan in ostane na koži kar dolgo vam priporočam, da olje povohate preden ga kupite. Zaenkrat olje uporabljam le na koži telesa. Za obraz se mi ne zdi primerno, za lase pa bom ga še poskusila, vendar predvidevam, da je potrebno biti pazljiv pri količini nanosa.

If I turn to the scent. It smells beautiful to me, like summer. Slightly sweet, at times it reminds me of sunscreen, but more sophisticated. I recognize nuts. Occasionally I spritz a bit of oil on my arm just because of the smell. Because the scent is quite strong and stays on the skin for quite some time, I do recommend you smell the oil before you buy it. For now I use the oil on my body only. I don’t think it’s appropriate for the face and I do plan to try it on my hair, but I assume that it’s good to be careful with the amount.

IMG_7986

Olje bom uporabljala čez celo poletje, pozimi pa imam raje kreme in losijone za telo. Si znam predstavljati, da ko bom olje porabila, bom kupila novega, saj kaj takega enostavno morate imeti v kolekciji. Kupite ga lahko v večini lekarn kot tudi v spletnih trgovinah (lekarnar.com) in zanj boste odštele okoli 31€ za 100ml ali okoli 18€ za 50ml, odvisno od tega kje ga boste kupili.

I will use the oil throughout the summer, in the winter I prefer creams and lotions for the body. I can imagine, that when I use the oil up I will buy a new one, because you just have to have something like this in your collection. You can buy it in most pharmacies as in online stores (lekarnar.com) and you will pay around 31€ for 100ml and aroung 18€ for 50ml, depending on where you buy it.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

Lush: Sex bomb

IMG_7773

Enostavno ne morem da ne bi ocenjevala teh Lushevih kopalnih bombic, saj je velika večina res čudovitih. To je bila še ena izmed tistih, ki so v prodaji že nekaj časa, a je nikoli nisem uspela poskusit. Tokrat sem se ob obisku trgovine hitro odločila za njo in jo takoj še isti večer poskusila.

I just have to review these bath bombs from Lush, because the majority of them are really wonderful. This has been one of those, that have been on sale for some time now, but I never had a chance to try it out. This time, while visiting the store, I quickly decided to buy it and try it the same night.

IMG_7776

Bombica je rožnata in vijolična z vrtnico (?) na vrhu. Prevladuje rožnata barva. Bombica diši nežno, cvetlično s pridihom sladkosti. Vonj je nežen in pomirja. Prevladujeta muškat in jasmin. Ko bombico spustim v vodo se vonj po kopalnici razširi zelo hitro. Ker je bombica v glavnem rožnata je tudi voda rožnata. Ko se polovica ali malenkost več bombice stopi, na površje priplava cvet. Cvet je mehak in rahlo sluzast. Čez čas cvet razpade in po vodi plavajo cvetni listi.

The bomb is pink and purple with a rose (?) on the top. The pink color dominates.  The bomb has a delicate, flowery scent with a hint of sweetness. The scent is gentle and soothing. Muscat and jasmine dominate. When I release the bomb in the water the scent spreads quickly throughout the bathroom. Because the bomb is mainly pink, the water turns pink as well. When half or slightly more of the bomb melts, a flower comes up to the water surface. The flower is soft and slightly slimy. After a while the flower falls apart and there are flower petals left floating on the surface.

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, citronska kislina, natrijev seskvikarbonat, parfum, sojino mleko, sintetični mošus, absolut jasmina, olje muškatne kadulje, olja ylang-ylanga, titanov dioksid, limonene, linalool, barvilo 18050, barvilo 61585, cvet iz riževega papirja.

Kopanje v kopeli je sproščujoče, cvetni listi pa dajejo občutek razkošja. Edino kar mi je žal, je da ni več cvetov v bombici. Cvetni listi čez čas razpadejo saj so riževega papirja, tako da v banji po kopanju ni ostankov. Bombica prav tako ne pušča na banji madežev, kar je meni zelo pomembno. 🙂 Koža je po kopanju dišeča in ni izsušena, kar je vedno plus. Za kopalno bombico boste odšteli 5,50€.

Bathing is relaxing, the flower petals give a sense of luxury. The only thing I regret is that there aren’t more flowers in the bomb. The petals break down after a while because they are made out of rice paper, so there is no residue after bathing. The bomb doesn’t leave any stains on the tub either, which is very important to me. 🙂 The skin is left fragrant and not dry, which is always a plus. You will pay 5,50€ for the bath bomb.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte. 😉

Lush: The Comforter bubble bar

Čeprav sem popolnoma predana Lushevim kopalnim bombicam, pa si za spremembo privoščim občasno tudi penečo kopel. Tako sem si tudi tokrat privoščila The Comforter penečo kopel. Kopel je rožnato bela s spiralnim vzorcem, nepravilne ploščate ovalne oblike.

Although I’m fully committed to Lush bath bombs, I do occasionally use a bubble bar. So this time I used The Comforter bubble bar. The bar is pink and white with a spiral pattern and an irregular flat oval shape.

IMG_7436

Vonj je precej saden z dodatki citrusov. Meni diši izredno lepo, poživljajoče. Lush pravi, da je glavna nota črni ribez in s tem se popolnoma strinjam. Meni je vonj izredno všeč.

The scent is quite fruity with an addition of citruses. To me it smells very nice, invigorating. Lush claims that the main note is blackcurrant and I totally agree. I really like the scent.

Lusheve peneče kopeli je potrebno drobiti v roki pod tekočo vodo, da se najbolje spenijo. Večji kos kopeli uporabite, bolj močan je vonj, bolj obarvana je voda in tudi več pene je. Jaz ponavadi uporabim polovico in mi je ravno dovolj. Lahko pa seveda uporabite tudi manj, več ne priporočam. Voda se je tokrat obarvala nežno rožnato.

To get a good foam you have to crumble the bubble bar under running water. The bigger the chunk you use, the stronger the scent, the water gets more colorful and there’s more foam. I usually use half of the bar and that’s enough for me. You can use less, but I don’t recommend using more. The water colored to a soft pink.

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, vinski kamen, natrijev lavrat sulfat, lavril betain, parfum, titanov dioksid, kokamid DEA, olje bergamotke, absolut črnega ribeza, cipresovo olje, limonene, linalool, barvilo 45410, barvilo 17200.

Kože mi ni izsušila, kar me ne preseneča, saj mi Lusheve kopeli načeloma nikoli ne izsušijo kože. Kopel prav tako vsebuje malenkost olja in sicer olje bergamotke ter cipresovo olje. Koža je le narahlo dišala po kopeli, vonj pa se je obdržal kakšni dve uri. Jaz jo priporočam. 🙂

It didn’t dry out my skin, which doesn’t surprise me, because baths from Lush usually never do. The bath also contains a little bit of oil, namely the bergamot oil and the cypress oil. The skin was slightly scented after the bath, the scent lingered for about two hours. I recommend it. 🙂

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: Blackberry bath bomb

Ta kopalna bombica je po mojem mnenju v prodaji že celo večnost, jaz pa sem jo kupila šele letos. Bombica je vijolična in na vrhu je vtisnjen napis BOMB. Moja je sicer imela par belo-vijoličnih pikic, ampak mislim, da je to bilo zato, ker sem jo slučajno zmočila in niso take ponavadi.

This bath bomb, in my opinion, has been sold in Lush for ages and I finally bought it this year.  The bomb is purple with the word BOMB imprinted on the top. Mine had a few white-purple dots, but I think it was because it got wet and they usually don’t look like that.

IMG_7191

Dišala je zelo močno in po prejšnji (ocena tukaj), ko sem bila razočarana, mi je bilo všeč, da lepo diši. Že samo ime pove, da diši po robidah, vendar pa je vonj robid pomešan tudi z vonjem bergamotke. Voda se obarva vijolično a je še vedno prosojna. Video kopalne bombice v akciji lahko vidite spodaj.

It smelled really strong and after the last one (review here), when I was disappointed, I liked that it smelled so nice. The name itself let’s us know that it smells like blackberries, but the blackberry scent is mixed with the scent of bergamot. The water stains purple, but it’s still transparent. Video of the bath bomb in action can be seen below.

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, citronska kislina, parfum, olje bergamotke, olje kadila, barvilo 18050, barvilo 42045.

Kar mi je bilo všeč in kaj imam rada je to, da me v sredini bombice preseneti sporočilo. Tokrat je pisalo Boom Boom! Super bi blo, če bi Lush natisnil na primer 100 različnih sporočil in jih naključno dajal v kopalne krogle, tako da nikoli ne bi vedeli kaj bi dobili. 😉 Kože mi ni izsušila, saj vsebuje tudi olja, kar je vedno velik plus. Koža je bila prav tako lepo odišavljena po kopeli, vonj se je obdržal kakšne tri ure.

What I liked and what I love is when I’m surprised by a note, hidden in the middle of the bomb. This time it said Boom Boom! It would be great if Lush would print for example a 100 different messages and randomly place them in the bath bombs, so you would never know, what you would get. 😉 It didn’t dry out my skin, because it contains oils as well, which is always a big plus. The skin was nicely perfumed after the bath, the scent lingered for about three hours.

IMG_7198

Vse je bilo super dokler nisem stopila iz banje, saj se je na površini vode nabralo olje (olje bergamotke in/ali olje kadila) in se posledično oprijelo roba banje. Še slabše je bilo, ko sem poskušala to zdrgnit, saj samo z vodo ni šlo. Po sproščujoči kopeli pa se mi res ni dalo še banje čistiti. Tako, da ji dajem to v minus. Ne vem, če se to vedno dogaja ali je bilo kaj narobe z mojo? Kakšne so vaše izkušnje?

Everything was great until I stepped out of the bathtub, because oil accumulated on the water surface (bergamot oil and/or frankincense oil) and subsequently clinged to the edge of the tub. It was even worse when I tried to rub it off, because it wouldn’t  with water only. After a relaxing bath I really didn’t want to clean the bathtub. So that was a minus. I don’t know if this always happens or there was something wrong with mine? What are your experiences?

H&M: Dry Conditioner

HMCollage

Tale H&M suhi balzam za lase se mi je zdel izredno zanimiv in sem se odločila, da ga bom preizkusila. Suhi balzam je v pločevinki na sprej, kot lak za lase ali suhi šampon. Vsebuje 250ml. Embalaža je modra, pisana, z belimi robom zgoraj in napisom v bež kvadratu. Meni je všeč.

This H&M dry conditioner seemed very interesting so I decided to try it out. The dry conditioner comes in a spray can, just like a hair spray or dry shampoo. It contains 250ml. The packaging is blue, colorful, with a white edge above and inscription in a beige square. I like it.

IMG_6642

Čeprav na navodilih piše, da je za uporabo za osvežitev las med pranji, sem ga le enkrat uporabila na tak način. Nanesli bi ga naj na spodnjo polovico las. H&M prav tako trdi, da balzam vsebuje arganovo olje ter ekstrakt avokada za sijoče in svileno gladke lase. Pred uporabo ga je potrebno dobro pretresti.

Although the instructions say to use it to  refresh the hair between washing, I used it only once that way. You are supposed to apply it on the lower half of the hair. H&M also states that the conditioner contains argan oil and avocado extract for shiny and silky smooth hair. Shake well before use.

IMG_7176

Sprej je brezbarven in diši lepo sveže. Mene vonj spominja na papajo, vendar sem zelo slaba pri opisovanju vonjev. 😀 Jaz sem ga prvič uporabila na sveže umitih laseh in balzam je dal lasem lep sijaj in lepo jih je odišavil, ampak lasje so bili tako ali tako umiti. Potem sem pa en dan uporabila suhi šampon in lasje so ponavadi po uporabi suhega šampona mat, torej brez tistega zdravega sijaja in včasih, če nanesem preveč suhega šampona, tudi rahlo sivkasti. In takrat sem se odločila nanesti direktno na lasišče še suhi balzam in zadeva je delovala. Lasje so izgledali  sveže umiti, sijoči.

The spray is colorless and smells fresh. The scent reminds me of papaya, but I’m very bad at describing scents. 😀 The first time I used it was on freshly washed hair and the conditioner gave the hair a nice shine and fresh scent, but the hair was washed anyway. Then one day I used my dry shampoo and the hair is usually matte, without the healthy shine, after using it and sometimes if I apply too much it also turns a bit greyish. In that moment I decided to use my dry conditioner directly on the scalp and it worked. The hair looked freshly washed, shiny.

IMG_7179

Od takrat naprej ga uporabljam vedno v kombinaciji s suhim šamponom, saj lasje po uporabi obeh niso mastni, so pa še vedno sijoči. Jaz si več ne predstavljam uporabe suhega šampona brez tega suhega balzama. Prav tako se mi zdi, da ga je skoraj nemogoče nanesti preveč, jaz ga nanašam po občutku.

From then on I always use it in combination with the dry shampoo, because the hair isn’t greasy, but it’s still shiny after using them both. I can’t imagine using the dry shampoo without this dry conditioner anymore. Also, it seems to me, that it’s almost impossible to apply too much, I apply it by feeling.

Kupila sem ga v H&M-u v Ljubljani (City Park) in zanj odštela 7,99€. Če uporabljate suhi šampon potem ga zelooo priporočam.

I bought it in H&M in Ljubljana (City Park) and paid 7,99€ for it. I reeeally recommend it if you use dry shampoo.

The Body Shop: Mandljevo olje za nohte & obnohtno kožico in pilica za nohte

Ta dva izdelka sem dobila v setu za rojstni dan. V setu so bili štirje izdelki: milo za roke, krema za roke, olje za obnohtno kožico in nohte ter pilica za nohte. Škatla je dobre velikosti in mi v kopalnici služi za shranjevanje.

I got these two products in a set for my birthday. There were four products in the set: a hand wash, hand cream, nail & cuticle oil and a nail file. The box is a good size and I use it for storage in my bathroom.

IMG_6583

Olje je v priročni embalaži s potisnim sistemom, čopičem za enostavni nanos in mehko potisno gumico za obnohtno kožico. Embalaža mi je všeč, saj je res enostavna za uporabo.

The oil is in a convenient package with a twist system, a brush for easy application and a soft rubbery cuticle pusher for the nail cuticle. I like the packaging, because it’s really easy to use.

IMG_6585

IMG_6589

Olje je rahlo gosto, ni čisto tekoče, kot olja ponavadi so. Je prozorno z rahlim rumenim odtenkom. Z lahkoto ga razmažem okoli nohta s čopičem. Olje sem pustila na obnohtni kožici dobro uro, potem pa sem ga vmasirala v noht in kožico. Vpije se hitro. Vonj je sladek, diši po marcipanu. S potisno gumico sem obnohtno kožico potisnila z nohta in moram povedati, da ni šlo tako enostavno, kot sem vajena. Čeprav se mi je zdelo, da olje ne more biti slabo, saj je pač olje in deluje, ampak izgleda, da ni tako. Olje je sicer zmehčalo kožico, ampak se mi zdi da ne tako, kot druga olja. Prav tako me je presenetilo, da mi obnohtne kožice ni nahranilo niti kaj preveč navlažilo, saj je bila drugi dan kožica precej suha. Prav tako je olja zelo malo (1,8ml) in, če kupite “svinčnik” posebej, je cena kar zasoljena (12€) za tako malo produkta. Jaz bom olje porabila, ne bi ga pa več kupila.

The oil is lightly thick, it’s not as liquid as oils usually are. It’s transparent with a hint of yellow. I easily spread it around my nail with the brush. I left the oil on my cuticle for a good hour, then I massaged it into my nail and cuticle. It absorbs quickly. The scent is sweet, it smells like marzipan. I pushed my cuticle away from the nail with the rubbery pusher and I have to say that it didn’t go as easy as I’m used to. Although I thought that the oil can’t be bad, it’s an oil and it works, but it seems that that’s not the case. The oil did soften my cuticle, but not as good as the other oils do. It also surprised me that the oil didn’t nourish nor did it moisturize my cuticle, because my cuticle was pretty dry the next day. Also there is not a lot of oil (1,8ml) and if you buy this “pencil” by itself, the price is quite steep (12€) for that little product. I will use the oil up, but will never repurchase.

IMG_6597

S pilico prav tako nisem zadovoljna. Najprej me je zmotila oblika, saj ne maram kvadratnih pilic, imam raje ploščate, tako da brez težav pridem pod noht. S to pilico je bilo to nemogoče. Pilica ima štiri ploskve, štiri različne teksture, ki nohte skrajšajo, očistijo, zgladijo in spolirajo. Tale pilica nohtov ne bo skrajšala oziroma potrebovali boste veliko več časa in truda, da noht skrajšate. Jaz sem poskusila z enim nohtom, potem pa sem jo hitro zamenjala za mojo Essence profesionalno pilico 4 v 1, ki svoje delo opravi hitro in učinkovito. Edino, za kar je bila ta pilica dobra, je bila za glajenje in poliranje nohtov, vendar pa moja Essence pilica naredi isto. Zato je bila tale pilica veliko razočaranje. Pilico lahko tudi posebej kupite, ampak je jaz ne priporočam. Cena izdelka je 5€.

I also wasn’t too happy with the file either. First of all I don’t like the shape of it, because I don’t like square files, I like flat ones, so I can get under my nail easily. This was impossible with this file. The file has four surfaces, four different textures that shorten the nail, clean it, smooth and polish the nail. This file won’t shorten the nail or you will need much more time and effort to shorten it. I tried with one nail and then replaced it quickly with my Essence professional nail file 4 in 1, that does its job fast and effective. The only thing this file is good for is to smooth and polish the nails, but my Essence file can do the same. This was a big disappointment for me. You can buy the file on its own, but I don’t recommend it. The price is 5€.

Vseeno se veselim preizkušanju mila za roke, saj kremo že poznam in mi je tudi zelo všeč. Ocene drugih dveh izdelkov kmalu na blogu. Ste že poskusili katerega od naštetih produktov? Kaj je vaše mnenje?

Still I can’t wait to try the hand soap, because I already know the cream and I really like it. The reviews of the other two products soon on my blog. Did you try any of the listed products? What is your opinion?

Lush: Melting Marshmallow Moment

Lush Melting Marshmallow Moment (MMM) je luksuzna olja kopel. MMM sem izbrala na podlagi vonja, saj me spominja na njihov gel za kopanje Snow Fairy oziroma če ne poznate tega gela na Bazooko (žvečilni gumi). Torej pričakujete lahko sladek, bombončkast vonj.

Lush Melting Marshmallow Moment (MMM) is a luxury oil bath. I picked MMM because the scent reminded me of their shower gel Snow Fairy or if you don’t know the gel then Bazooka (chewing gum). So you can expect a sweet, candy scent.

MMM je oblikovana v ploščati valj, ki je na eni strani rumen, na drugi strani pa rožnat s srebrnimi bleščicami. Oljna kopel ni velika kot kopalna bombica, ampak se vseeno dalj časa topi v vodi. Kopalna bombica se razgradi v minuti do dveh, medtem ko oljna kopel potrebuje dobrih šest ali sedem minut. Razlika med njima je tudi ta, da čeprav je barvna. vode ne obarva, ampak ji minimalno spremeni odtenek. Razlika skoraj ni bila opazna. Torej ni barvne in zanimive eksplozije, kot je pri kopalni bombici.

MMM is in a flat cylinder form, which is yellow on one and pink with silver glitter on the other side. The oil bath is not as big as the bath bomb, however it does take more time to dissolve in water. The bath bomb dissolves in a minute or two while the oil bath needs good six or seven minutes. The difference between them is also that, although the oil bath is colored, it doesn’t color the water, just changes the tint slightly. The difference was hardly noticeable. So there isn’t any colorful explosion as it is with the bath bomb.

Glede na to, da je oljna kopel, je na vodi tanka oljnata plast. Koža je po kopanju izredno mehka in navlažena, uporaba losjona ali kreme ni potrebna. Tudi vonj je dovolj intenziven, da je koža po kopanju do dve uri odišavljena. Kad je potrebno po kopanju umiti, saj se na dnu poležejo bleščice pa tudi olje lahko ostane na kadi.

Due to the fact, that this is an oil bath, there is a thin oily layer on the water. The skin is really soft and moisturized after bathing, the use of body lotion or body butter is not necessary. The scent is also intense enough so the skin smells like the bath for up to two hours. You do need to wash the bathtub after, because the glitter can gather on the bottom of it and also oil can remain on the bathtub.

Meni je oljna kopel všeč in si jo bom še privoščila, saj je občutek na koži enkraten, ne bo pa nadomestila mojih kopalnih bombic, ki bodo pri meni ostale na prvem mestu. Čeprav sam video ni tako zanimiv, kot pri kopalnih bombicah, pa sem ga vseeno posnela, da dobite občutek kako to izgleda v praksi.

I do like the oil bath and I will buy it again, because the feeling on the skin is excellent, but it will not substitute my bath bombs, which are staying in first place. Although the video is not as interesting as the bath bomb videos are, I still made it so you can get a sense on how it looks in practice.

Lush Lover Lamp

Ker je valentinovo pred vrati sem morala poskusit vsaj en izdelek iz Lusha iz te kolekcije. Lover Lamp mi je hitro padla v oči, saj so se mi srčki na bombici kar zasvetili.

Because Valentines is close I had to try at least one product from Lush from that collection. Lover Lamp stood out in my eyes, because the hearts on the bath bomb just lit up. 

lll

Bombica je bele barve s tremi rdečimi srčki. Dišala bi naj po olju brazilske pomaranče in vaniliji. Preden sem bombico vrgla v vodo sem citruse kar fejst vohala, ko se je pa bombica stopila pa je prišla do izraza vanilija, medtem ko citrusov več nisem vohala tako močno. To me sploh ne moti saj imam vanilijo zelo rada. Iz bombice so izplavali trije veliki rdeči srčki in nešteto majhnih srčkov, ki so se postoma topili v vodi. Bombica vsebuje tudi bleščice, ki pa niso tako opazne, saj postane voda mlečno bela. Bombico v akciji si lahko ogledat v videu spodaj.

The bomb is white with three red hearts. It’s supposed to smell like Brazilian orange oil and vanilla. Before I put the bath bomb in the water I could smell the citrus quite well, but when the bomb melted I could smell vanilla more. I don’t mind that because I really like vanilla. Three big red hearts and numerous small hearts came out of the bomb which dissolved gradually. The bath bomb also contains glitter, which is not that noticeable, because the water turns milky white. You can see the bath bomb in action in the video down below.

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, citronska kislina, kakavovo maslo, titanov dioksid, absolut vanilije iz pravične trgovine, olje brazilske pomaranče, organsko ekstra deviško olivno olje, organsko ricinusovo olje, užitni rdeči srčki, limonene, parfum, zlate bleščice, barvilo 14700.

Na gladini vode sem opazila oljnato plast o čemu pričajo tudi sestavine, saj vsebuje bombica veliko olj in kakavovo maslo. Koža je zaradi tega mehka in navlažena. Na koži sicer ostane rahlo masten sloj, ki me v teh mrzlih mesecih ne moti. Bleščice se tudi prilepijo na kožo, zato priporočam, da se po kopanju še na hitro stuširate, da odplaknete bleščice. Lahko jih pa seveda pustite na koži. 🙂 Meni je bila bombica všeč in sigurno si bom kupila še eno, ali dve, ali tri… Zaenkrat je še na voljo v spletni trgovini Lush, kako je s stanjem v trgovinah pa ne bi vedela.

I did notice an oily layer on the surface of the water which is supported by the ingredients, because the bomb does contain a lot of oils and cocoa butter. The skin is soft and moisturized because of that. There is a slightly oily layer left on the skin, but in these cold months I don’t mind. The glitter does also stick to the skin so I recommend a quick shower after the bath, to wash away the glitter. Or you can leave it on the skin. 🙂 I liked the bath bomb and I will definitely buy one more, or two, or three… It’s still available in the Lush online shop, but I don’t know about the situation in stores.

Lush Sakura

Sakura je, po mojem mnenju, najlepša kopalna bombica od Lusha. Je mlečno bele barve spridihom rožnate, z rožnatimi in zeleno-modrimi pikami. Na vrhu ima skupek rožnatih in zelenih solnih (?) kristalov. Lahko bi jo gledala in vohala cel dan. 🙂 Glavne note so mimoza, jasmin in citrusi, kar nam tudi pove, da je bolj nežnega cvetličnega vonja. Meni čudovito diši. Kot majhna rožica s pridihom sladkosti.

Sakura is, in my opinion, the most beautiful bath bomb from Lush. It’s milky white with a hint of pink, with pink and teal dots. On the top it has a bunch of pink and teal salt (?) crystals. I could look at it and smell it the whole day. 🙂 The main notes are mimosa, jasmine and citrus, which tells us that it has a more delicate flowery scent. I love the scent. It’s like a small flower with a hint of sweetness.

Ker je bombica svetla ni tiste barvne eksplozije, kot smo je vajeni pri večini Lushevih bombicah. Vode ne obarva, kot lahko vidite tudi v videu spodaj. Med kopanjem sem opazila da je na vodi zelo tanka oljnata plast, kar bi lahko bilo limonino olje. Koža je po kopanju rahlo odišavljena in navlažena. Čeprav bo mogoče kdo razočaran, ker ni bilo nobene barvne eksplozije, ampak meni je tako lepa in tudi diši mi zelo lepo, da jo bom sigurno še kupila. Cena bombice je 5,50€.

Because the bath bomb is light there is no colorful explosion that we are used to with most of the Lush bath bombs. It doesn’t color the water either as you can see in the video below. I did notice a really thin oily layer on the water which could be the citrus oil. The skin is slightly scented and moisturized after bathing. Although some of you may be disappointed because there was no colorful explosion I myself love the way it smells and looks so I will buy it again. The price is 5,50€.

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, citronska kislina, parfum, fina morska sol, limonino olje, absolut mimoze, absolut pomarančnih cvetov, absolut jasmina, izvleček gardenije, citral, limonene, barvilo 18050, barvilo 42045.
