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.

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.

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.

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.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 😉

Lush: Cup O’coffee

IMG_6631

Kje naj začnem? Mogoče pri tem, da je ta maska zamenjala mojo najljubšo svežo masko od Lusha in sicer Brazened Honey, ki je bila z mano in ob meni zadnjih 8 let? Ali naj začnem pri tem, da se je to zgodilo že po prvi uporabi? Ali pa, da sem popolnoma zaljubljena in predana samo še tej maski? Vseeno je kje bom začela, saj je vse to res. 🙂 Na kratko sem jo omenila tudi v moji negi obraza, katero najdete tukaj.

Where do I start? Maybe at the fact that this mask substituted my favorite fresh face mask from Lush, Brazened Honey, which was with me and by me for the last 8 years? Or should I start at the fact, that this happened after the first time I used it? Or maybe that I’m totally in love and dedicated to this mask only? It doesn’t matter where I start, because everything is true. 🙂 I did shortly mention it in my skincare routine post, that you can find here.

Lush spremljam tedensko in takrat tudi preverim novosti. Takoj, ko sem zagledala to masko na spletni strani, se mi je zdela zanimiva, saj imam zelo rada kavo. Ob naslednjem obisku  trgovine sem jo morala samo povohati in šla je z menoj. Maska namreč diši kot prava turška kava z žličko sladkorja. Če vam kava ne diši, potem predlagam, da se maski izognete. Maska je temno rjave barve z mletimi kavnimi zrni, ki so idealni za piling. Je precej gosta in malenkost lepljiva.

I check the Lush site weekly for any new products. As soon as I saw this mask on the website it seemed very interesting, because I really like coffee. I just had to smell it, the next time I visited the shop, and I bought it. The mask smells like true Turkish coffee with a tea spoon of sugar. If you don’t like the smell of coffee, I advise you avoid it. The mask is dark brown with ground coffee beans which are ideal for exfoliation. It is pretty thick and a bit tacky.

Nanesem jo na cel obraz, izognem se le predelu pod očmi. Čeprav me ponavadi moti, če se maska ne posuši na mojem obrazu, me pri tej maski to niti najmanj ne moti. Maska se torej ne posuši, ker je gosta pa tudi ne polzi po obrazu, ampak ostane na svojem mestu. Po 15 – 20 minutah začnem z vlažno dlanjo masko odstranjevati in s tem naredim še piling. Zrna so dovolj velika in ravno prav “groba”, da učinkovito opravijo svoje delo. Jaz imam rada bolj grobe pilinge, zato z roko kar precej močno pritisnem ob kožo, da je piling učinek še večji. Če ne marate grobih pilingov pa lahko le narahlo pritisnete ob kožo in tako umijete masko z obraza. Umivalnik je potrebno na koncu umiti, saj se mleta kavna zrna rada naberejo na dnu umivalnika. Vonj se na koži obdrži kar dolgo časa, 3-4 ure približno.

I apply it to the whole face and avoid only the eye area. Although it usually bothers me if the mask doesn’t dry on my face, I really don’t mind with this one. So the mask doesn’t dry, but because it’s really thick it doesn’t slide around the face, it stays where you apply it. After 15 – 20 minutes I start to remove it with a moist palm and I exfoliate while doing so. The grains are big enough and “rough” enough to effectively do their job. I do like more rough exfoliators so I press pretty hard with my palm against my skin, so the exfoliating effect is bigger. If you don’t like rough exfoliators you can press slightly against the skin and wash the mask of the face that way. You do need to wash the washbasin at the end, because the grained coffee beans do tend to gather on the bottom of the washbasin. The scent stays on the skin for quite some time, approximately 3-4 hours.

Koža je po uporabi mehka, navlažena, nahranjena in sijoča, tako da ponavadi nanesem samo kremo za oči, ostalo pa preskočim ali pa grem čez z losjonom. Jaz sem mojo masko porabila v dobrem mesecu, ena majhna embalaža mi je dovolj za 5-6 krat. Druga me že čaka in veselim se dneva, ko jo bom spet uporabila. Za manjšo masko (100g) boste odšteli 10,50€, za večjo (250g) pa 16,95€.

The skin is really soft, moisturized, nourished and shiny so I usually apply eye cream only and skip the rest or go with a lotion all over. I used my mask in about a month, one small packaging is enough for 5-6 times. The second one is already waiting for me and I look forward to the day that I use it again. You will pay 10,50€ for the smaller mask (100g) and 16,95€ for the bigger one (250g).

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 🙂

P.s. čez vikend bom dodala še par fotografij, saj jih nisem še utegnila narediti.

P.s. I will make a few more photographs over the weekend, because I didn’t have time yet.
