Nivea: Mousse za prhanje creme soft

img_9171

Kot obljubljeno sem vam končno pripravila novo objavo. Do konca decembra se bom potrudila, da bo teh objav nekaj več kot zadnjih par mesecev. Naj bo to moje darilo za vas. 🙂 Ker mi zadnje čase določeni vonji ne odgovarjajo sem iskala nekaj z malce bolj nežnim vonjem. Ko sem se potikala med policami v Mullerju me je pritegnila tale Niveina pena za tuširanje, predvsem zato, ker je pisalo, da je nova. Čeprav se mi zdijo taki produkti za tuširanje potratni, pa sem se vseeno odločila poskusiti. Ker sta bili na izbiro dve peni sem izbrala tisto z mandljevim oljem.

As promised I have finally written a new post. I will try my best to post more on the blog until the end of December than I have the last few months. Let this be my present to you guys. 🙂 Lately I have been sensitive to strong scents so I was on the lookout for something with a more delicate scent. When I was wandering between the shelves in Muller this Nivea shower mousse intrigued me, especially because it said it was new. Although I find these kind of shower products wasteful I still decided to try it. Because there were two foam I chose the one with the almond oil.

Embalaža je torej enaka kot pri drugih penah za tuširanje, penah za britje. Sama embalaža je svetlo modre, bele barve s temno modrimi napisi. Všečna. Pred uporabo jo vedno pretresem. Pena diši zelo nežno, po Nivei. Sama pena je gosta, bogata in se lepo razmazuje po koži, tako da je porabim relativno malo. Na začetku sem nanesla občutno preveč, vendar pa sedaj vem boljše. Dobro umije in se enostavno spere. Na koži pusti le rahel, nežen, vonj, ki pa se ne obdrži dolgo. Pena je kot taka tudi zelo dobra za britje.

The packaging is the same as with other shower foams, shaving foams. The packaging itself is a light blue, white color with dark blue writing. Nice. I always shake it before use. The foam has a gentle scent, Nivea like. The foam itself is thick, rich and spreads nicely on the skin so I don’t use a lot. In the beginning I used to apply too much, but now I know better. It cleans nicely and washes off easily. It leaves a delicate scent on the skin that doesn’t linger for long. The foam itself is also good for shaving.

Ker imam pozimi izredno suho kožo na nogah, tale pena pa mi je ne izsuši, lahko bi celo rekla da jo malenkost navlaži, sem presenetljivo navdušena in sigurno bom jo še kupila.  Za njo sem odštela okoli 3€, kupila pa sem jo v Mullerju.

I have extremely dry skin on my legs in the winter but this mousse doesn’t dry it out I could even say that it moisturizes it a little bit so I’m surprisingly impressed and I will definitely buy it again. I paid around 3€ for it and I bought it in Muller.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

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.

BEBE Young care: Soft shower cream

IMG_7442

Gela za tuširanje še nisem ocenila, ampak dejstvo je, da ga seveda uporabljam, vsak dan. 🙂 Odločila sem se, da bom začela kar s tem od Bebe, saj je prvi, ki me je po dolgem času presenetil. Gel je v bistvu krema za tuširanje za suho kožo.

I haven’t reviewed a shower gel yet, but it’s a fact that I of course use one, every day. 🙂 I decided to start with the one from Bebe, because it’s the first, after a while, that really surprised me. The gel is actually a shower cream for dry skin.

Sama imam precej suho in občutljivo kožo, predvsem na nogah imam občasno tudi luskasto kožo. Večina gelov za tuširanje mi kožo izsuši, zato sem navdušena, če najdem gel, kateri mi kože ne izsuši. In tako je bilo tudi s tem.

I have pretty dry and sensitive skin, especially on my legs I occasionally get flaky skin. Most shower gels dry out my skin and that’s why I’m really excited if I find a gel, that doesn’t dry out my skin. And so it was with this one.

gelcollage

Gel je v beli plastenki z rožnatim pokrovom na poklop in z rožnatim napisom. Sam gel je mlečno bel. Gel uporabljam z gobico za tuširanje (na sliki) saj se tako najlepše speni. Pena je res bogata in kremasta, kar mi je še najbolj všeč. Vonj je nežen, ne premočan. Na koži se obdrži kako uro. Gel dobro umije, se lepo spere in ne pušča filma na koži.

The gel comes in a white bottle with a pink lid and pink lettering. The gel itself is milky white. I use the gel with a mesh loofah (on the pic), because it foams the best this way. The foam is really rich and creamy, which I like the best. The scent is delicate, not too strong. It stays on the skin for about an hour. It washes nicely, rinses off easily and doesn’t leave a film on the skin.

Jaz rada menjam gele, kreme, za tuširanje, zato ga verjetno ne bom kupila do zime. Sicer pa ga priporočam. Cene ne poznam, saj je bil darilo, mislim pa, da ga lahko kupite v Mullerju.

I like to change my shower gels, creams, so I probably won’t buy it until winter. Otherwise, I do recommend it. I don’t know the price, because it was a gift, but I think that you can buy it in Muller.

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. 🙂
