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.

Moja odvisnost?

Partner me je nekaj časa nazaj vprašal od katerega produkta sem odvisna? Čeprav je pri ličilih in kozmetiki težko ostati pri enem ali dveh produktih pa sem se po dolgem razmisleku odločila, da je to najverjetneje balzam za ustnice, saj ni pomembno koliko jih imam, če opazim nekaj kar mi je všeč, bom to kupila. 😀 Tako imam v vsaki torbici najmanj enega, na vsaki polički enega ali dva, tudi po predalih in žepih se vedno kotalijo. Ne vem zakaj je temu tako, ampak to je pač produkt, ki ga vedno znova in znova kupujem, saj se mi vedno zdi, da pa jih še nimam dovolj. Prav tako imam zahtevne ustnice, ki se rade izsušijo in vedno iščem kaj boljšega. 🙂 Verjetno je razlog tudi ta, da večina balzamov ni tako draga in potem nakup s tem upravičim.

My boyfriend asked me a while ago which product am I addicted to? Although it’s hard to stay with one product when it comes to make-up and cosmetics, after a long deliberation I decided that it would probably have to be the lip balm, because no matter how much of them I have, if I see something that I like I will buy it. 😀 I have at least one in every purse, one or two on every shelf and even in drawers and pockets I can find them rolling. I don’t know why it’s like that, but that’s just a product that I tend to buy all the time, because I always think that maybe I don’t have enough. I also have very demanding lips that chap easily so I’m always on the lookout for something better. 🙂 The reason for that is also that the majority of lip balms is not that expensive.

Moj najljubši je in verjetno še dolgo bo Nuxe Reve de miel balzam za ustnice. Ne bom vsakega posebej opisovala, ker bi predolgo trajalo, bom pa naredila seznam vseh, ki jih imam oziroma vseh, ki so na sliki, saj vseh niti našla nisem. Obupna sem, saj vem. 😀 In ko ravno govorimo o moji odvisnosti sem v torek kupila še enega, katerega sem si nekaj časa ogledovala in sicer Melvita Rožni nektar za ustnice. Če bi radi, da določenega opišem oziroma ocenim bolj natančno potem mi to povejte v komentarju. 😉

My favorite is and probably will be for some time the Nuxe Reve de miel lip balm. I won’t review each and every one, because it would take too long, but I will make a list of all of the lip balms that I have or the ones that are in the picture, because I couldn’t find all of them. I’m terrible I know. 😀 And now that we’re talking about my addiction, I bought another one on Tuesday. It’s Melvita 3 roses nectar for lips. If you would like me to review any of the lip balms listed below just let me know in the comments. 🙂

Ali imate vi kakšno odvisnost? Kateri produkt vedno kupite, čeprav imate doma že cel kup produktov za isti namen? 🙂

Do you have any addictions? Which product do you always buy, even though you have many of them for the same purpose at home already? 🙂

Seznam mojih balzamov / My lip balm list:

Lip smacker (8 različnih okusov / 8 diferent flavors), Nuxe Reve de miel lip moisturizing stick, Bio Beaute by Nuxe lip balm with apricot butter X2, Avene Cold cream lip balm, Dr. Hauschka lip balm, Dvorec Trebnik honey lip balm, Vichy Capital Soleil lip stick medium protection, Dr. Pasha lip balm, REN Vita Mineral lip balm, Carmex original tube lip balm, Nuxe Reve de miel lip balm X2, Melvita 3 roses nectar for lips.
