Lush: Don’t look at me

IMG_7850

Kot mnogi že veste, sem obsedena z maskami za obraz, predvsem z Lushevimi maskami. Zato me je izredno hitro zamikala tudi tale, precej nova maska, Don’t look at me. Kot sem prav tako že omenila, so mi najljubše maske s katerimi lahko naredim še piling obraza.

As many of you know, I’m obsessed with face masks especially with Lush masks. Therefore I was quickly interested in this one, the quite new mask, Don’t look at me. As I also mentioned before, my favorite masks are the ones that I can use to exfoliate my face as well.

Priznam, da me je maska najprej zamikala zaradi barve, saj je čudovite svetlo modro, turkizne, barve. Ko pa sem prebrala, da vsebuje tudi mleta riževa zrna, ki omogočajo piling sem bila odločena, da jo poskusim. Maska ni gosta ali trda, ampak izredno mazljiva, tako da je nanos res preprost. Diši po sladki limoni in citrusih, torej ni prekislega vonja, tudi ne presladkega. Meni se zdi ravno prav za poletje, saj je vonj precej nežen in nevsiljiv.

I admit that this mask initially tempted me because of its color, it’s a gorgeous bright blue, turquoise, color. When I read, that it also contains ground rice, that allow me to exfoliate, I was determined to try it out. The mask isn’t thick or hard, but extremely malleable, so the application is really simple.  It smells like sweet lemon and citrus, so the scent isn’t too sour as not too sweet. I think it’s just right for the summer, because the scent is pretty gentle and unobtrusive.

Nanesem jo na cel obraz, izognem se predelu pod očmi. Masko pustim na obrazu 15 do 20 minut. Ker masko nanesem precej na debelo (lahko jo nanesete tudi manj) se dalj časa suši, ampak je po 20ih minutah suha. Po pretečenem času začnem z vlažno dlanjo masko odstranjevati in s tem naredim še piling. Mleta riževa zrna so dovolj velika in ravno prav “groba”, da učinkovito opravijo svoje delo. Jaz imam rada precej grobe pilinge, zato z roko kar precej močno pritisnem ob kožo, da je piling učinek še večji. Če niste pristaš grobih pilingov pa lahko le narahlo pritisnete ob kožo in tako umijete masko z obraza.

I apply it to the whole face, avoiding the area around the eyes. I leave the mask on for 15 to 20 minutes. Because I apply it quite thick (you can apply less) it takes a bit more time to dry, but after 20 minutes it’s dry. After the passed time I start to remove the mask with a damp palm and exfoliate in the process. The ground rice grains are large enough and “rough” enough to do the job effectively.  I like a bit more rough exfoliate, so I press quite heavily with my hand against the skin, so the exfoliating effect is even bigger. If you’re not a fan of harsh exfoliates you can press gently against the skin and wash the face that way.

Med umivanjem sem dobila rahlo masten občutek na koži, vendar pa občutek hitro izgine in ostane nam le čista koža, ki je navlažena, zato sama nisem uporabila kreme za obraz. Maska mi je všeč tudi zato, ker vsebuje limono, ki oža pore ter tunizijski neroli in organski tofu, ki posvetlita kožo in jo negujeta.

During the washing I got a slightly greasy feeling on the skin, but the feeling quickly disappears and we’re left with clean, moisturized skin, so I didn’t use any facial cream. I also like the mask, because it contains lemon, that minimises pores and Tunisian neroli and organic tofu which brighten and nourish the skin.

Vonj se na koži ne obdrži dolgo oziroma, ker je vonj precej nežen ga sama nisem več vonjala. Koža je lepo sijoča, čista in navlažena. Maska je pakirana v 75g lončku, ki je izredno priročen in tipično Lushevski. Sama sem masko dobila “zastonj”, saj sem masko menjala za 5 čistih Lushevih lončkov v trgovini. Drugače je cena maske 10,45€, kar se mi ne zdi veliko. Masko priporočam in sama jo bom z veseljem uporaljala celo poletje.

The scent doesn’t linger on the skin for long and it’s delicate as it is, so I didn’t smell it anymore. The skin is shiny, clean and moisturized. The mask is packed in a 75g pot which is extremely convenient and typical for Lush. I got this mask “for free” because I exchanged it for 5 clean Lush pots in the store. Otherwise the price for the mask is 10,45€ which I don’t find to be too much. I recommend the mask and will use it happily the whole summer.

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.

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.

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. 😀

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.

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.
