Adventni koledarji

Adventne koledarje poznamo že od malega, ko smo jih dobivali decembra in vsak dan veselo odpirali ter jedli čokoladice in bonbončke, ki so se skrivali notri. Adventni koledarji so se od takrat razvili v nekaj več, nekaj česar se ne veselijo le otroci, ampak tudi odrasli. Tako lahko kupimo adventne koledarje, ki vsebujejo tudi alkohol, cigare, igrače, lake za nohte in seveda tudi kozmetiko. Predvsem ta zadnji me je najbolj razveselil.

We’ve known about advent calendars from an early age, when we used to get them in December and happily opened them every day to find and eat the chocolates and candy that were hiding inside. Advent calendars have since evolved into something more, something that not only children are happy about but adults as well. We can now buy advent calendars that contain alcohol, cigars, toys, nail polish and cosmetics of course. The last of those is the one that bring me the most happiness.

Adventni koledar s kozmetiko, naj bo negovalna ali dekorativna, bo razveselil marsikatero punco, ženo, prijateljico, mamo oziroma vse, ki imamo rade kozmetiko. Sama se nekako mogoče celo bolj nagibam k negovalni kozmetiki kot dekorativni, saj zelo rada preizkušam nove kremice, losijone,… Jaz vam bom tukaj ponudila par opcij, vendar pa se v Sloveniji zaenkrat še kar težko dobi kakšen dober adventni koledar, tako da če se boste odločile za kakšnega predlagam, da malo pobrskate po spletu. 😉

An advent calendar with cosmetics, care cosmetics or make-up, will bring joy to almost any girlfriend, wife, friend, mom or anyone that likes cosmetics. I myself am thinking more of care cosmetics than make-up, because I love to test out new cremes, lotions,… Here I will offer you a few options but in Slovenia it’s still quite difficult to get a good advent calendar so if you choose to get one I recommend looking online. 😉

  1. LUSH 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 52,95GBP

Naj začnem kar z Lush adventnim koledarjem, saj kot veste, sem obsedena z Lushem. Čeprav mislim, da se ga v Sloveniji ne bo dalo kupiti pa angleška Lusheva stran pošilja tudi k nam, tako da si ga lahko vseeno naročite.

Let me start with the Lush advent calendar because as you know I’m crazy about Lush. Although I think you can’t get it in Slovenia you can still order it on the English site and get it delivered to Slovenia.

2. THE BODY SHOP

Spet eno podjetje, ki se ne da kupiti pri nas, vendar pa imate The Body Shop v sosednjih državah, tako da če boste kaj potovali naokoli lahko obiščete kakšno trgovino. Letos nudijo 3 različne koledarje, za 95€, 130€ ali 160€.

This is again a company that isn’t available in Slovenia but you can buy it in the neighboring countries so if you’ll travel around you can visit a store there. This year they’re offering 3 different calendars, for 95€, 130€ or 160€.

     3. W7 COSMETICS 34,99€

Seveda sem poiskala tudi koledarje, ki se dajo kupiti/naročiti v Sloveniji in W7 je eden izmed takih. Naročite ga lahko na Ličila.si strani. Notri boste našli šminke, lake za nohte, senčila in še več dobrot.

Of course I looked for calendars that you can buy/order in Slovenia and W7 is one of those. You can order it on the Ličila.si site. Inside you will find lipsticks, nail polishes, eyeshadows and many more goodies.

     4. FEELUNIQUE 30GBP

Ker tudi sama kupujem na tej spletni strani in ker pri njih lahko kupite ogromno različnih kozmetičnih produktov, me izmed vseh še najbolj tale mika, pa tudi cena se mi zdi primerna. Na voljo od 3. novembra na njihovi spletni strani.

Because I myself buy from this website and because you can buy a lot of different cosmetic products from them I’m mostly tempted to buy this one and the price is good as well. It will be available from November 3rd on their website.

     5. MAKEUP REVOLUTION (ok. 30€)

Čeprav datuma prihoda adventnega koledarja in točne cene še nisem uspela dobiti, pa so mi potrdili, da ga bodo na spletni strani Makeuprevoluton.si sigurno dobili.

Although I couldn’t get an arrival date or the price for this advent calendar they did confirm that they will surely have it on their website Makeuprevolution.si.

Kot sem vam omenila je teh adventnih koledarjev res ogromno in verjamem, da boste tudi pri nas dobili kakšnega, ki vam bo všeč. Jaz si bom skoraj zagotovo kupila kakšnega in v tem primeru ga bom tudi na blogu predstavila in pokazala s čim so me presenetili.

As I mentioned there are a lot of advent calendars and I believe that you will find one for yourself. I will probably get one for myself and in that case I will also review it here and show you what they surprised me with.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

The Body Shop: Mandljeva krema in milo za roke

tbs

Ta dva izdelka sem dobila v darilnem setu. Prvi del darilnega paketa sem že opisala tukaj. Drugi del, torej kremo in milo za roke, pa bom sedaj.

I got these two products in a gift set. I reviewed the first part of the gift set here. The second part, the hand wash and the cream, I will review now.

Kremo za roke sem že uporabljala in že od nekdaj mi je všeč. Najprej naj omenim embalažo. Krema je v aluminijasti tubi, ki se zelo rada zmečka in meni ni najbolj všeč, ampak je praktična in uporabna saj, ko je kreme vedno manj, lahko tubo zvijemo.

I already used the hand cream and I always liked it. First let me mention the packaging. The cream is in a aluminum tube that likes to crumple and I don’t like that, but it is practical and useful, because when there’s less and less cream, we can roll up the tube.

IMG_6594

Sama krema je bele barve, zelo dobro mazljiva, ravno prav gosta. Krema diši kot celotna mandljeva linija, po sladkih mandljih oziroma marcipanu. Krema se hitro vpije, ne pušča mastnega občutka, samo nežne roke. Vonj na rokah se obdrži kar nekaj časa, dobri dve uri ali več (odvisno kako pogosto umivate roke). Krema mi roke navlaži in nahrani, občutek na koži je super, kar je glede na to, da je olje sladkega mandlja že na četrtem mestu (čeprav bi lahko bilo tudi višje), tudi pričakovano. Kreme se porabi malo, tako da bo ena tuba dolgo zdržala. Kremo priporočam, še posebej, če vam je všeč vonj po marcipanu. Cena kreme je 8€.

The cream itself is white, very well spreadable, with just the right thickness. The cream smells like the whole almond line, like sweet almonds or marzipan. The cream absorbs quickly, it doesn’t leave a greasy feeling, just soft hands. The smell stays on the skin quite some time, about two hours or more (depending how often you wash your hands). It moisturizes and nourishes my hands, the feeling on the skin is great, which is expected, given the fact that the sweet almond oil is in fourth place (although it could be higher) in ingredients. One tube will last you a long time, because you don’t need a lot. I do recommend the cream, especially if you like the smell of marzipan. It costs 8€.

The Body Shop trdi, da milo za roke v bistvu ne vsebuje mila. Milo je v plastični embalaži s pumpico. En pritisk na pumpico je dovolj da dobro umijemo roke. Milo se dobro speni, dobro umije in se enostavno spere. Na koži na pušča filma. Diši kot celotna linija, torej po sladkih mandljih oziroma po marcipanu. Milo bi naj kožo na rokah navlažilo, kar težko potrdim ali zanikam, edino kar lahko izpostavim je, da mi kože definitivno ne izsuši, kar je velik plus. Vonj se na rokah obdrži dobre pol ure. Cena mila je 7€.

The Body Shop states that the hand wash is soap-free. The wash is in a plastic packaging with a pump. One pump is enough to wash the hands well. The hand wash foams well, cleans good and washes off easily. It doesn’t leave a film on the skin. It smells like the whole line, like sweet almonds or marzipan. The wash is supposed to moisturize the hands, which I can’t confirm or deny, the only thing I can point out is that is definitely doesn’t dry out my skin, which is a big plus. The scent stays on the hands half an hour. The price for the wash is 7€.

IMG_6591

Če zaključim, lahko povem, da je krema za roke res super. Milo ni slabo a ga verjetno ne bi več kupila, saj rada vedno preizkušam nova. Pilica in olje za nohte pa mi nista všeč in ju tudi ne bi več kupila. Ste preizkusile katerega izmed ocenjenih izdelkov. So vam bili všeč? Pustite mi komentar spodaj.

To conclude, I can say that the hand cream is really great. The hand wash is not bad but I probably wouldn’t buy it anymore, because I like to try out new things. The file and the nail oil I didn’t like and I wouldn’t buy them again. Did you try any of the reviewed products? Did you like them? Leave me a comment below.

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?
