H&M: Dead Sea Mud Mask

hmmaskaCollage

Tole masko za obraz sem kupila ob prejšnjem obisku H&M trgovine v Ljubljani. Takrat sem tudi kupila H&M Charcoal and pumice masko (masko z ogljem in plovcem), ki sem jo ocenila že tukaj. Tokrat pa sem poskusila drugo masko, ki sem jo kupila in sicer z blatom mrtvega morja za mešano kožo.

I bought this mask the last time I visited the H&M store in Ljubljana. I bought the H&M Charcoal and pumice mask that I reviewed here then as well. This time I decided to try the other one I bought, namely the one with the dead sea mud for combination skin. 

Maske so pakirane v majhnem lončku za enkratno uporabo. Maske so v lončkih različnih barv, ta le bila v oranžnem, vendar pa maska notri ni bila oranžna kot sem pričakovala. Zraven so priložena navodila, ki so natisnjena na kartonasti zloženki v kateri je lonček. Embalaža je torej dobro zamišljena za enkratno uporabo. Sama maska je svetlo pastelno zelene barve. Maska ni čisto gladka, notri so nekakšni mikro delci, ki pa niso bili uporabni za piling in zato zame čisto odveč, saj jih je bilo tudi relativno malo notri. Ko sem masko odprla mi je v obraz butnil vonj po moški kolonjski vodi. Šokirana sem bila, saj takega vonja nisem pričakovala. Vonj je bil izrazito močan in precej neprimeren za masko za obraz.

The masks are nicely packed in a small pot for a single use.The masks are in different colored pots, this one was in an orange one but the mask inside wasn’t orange as I expected. We also get instructions, which are printed on the cardboard that holds the pot. The packaging is therefore well conceived for a single use. The mask itself is a light pastel green color. The mask is not smooth there are some kind of micro particles inside which are not useful for exfoliating so in my opinion superfluous, because they’re rare. When I opened the mask the smell of male cologne bumped into my face. I was shocked because I didn’t expect that kind of scent. The scent is extremely strong and quite inappropriate for a face mask.

Maske je bilo tokrat manj v lončku kot prejšnjič, čeprav je teža ista, tako da sem porabila skoraj vse, kar mi je prav, saj masko težko shranimo, ko je enkrat odprta. Masko bi naj vmasirali na umit in suh obraz, ter pustili stat do 15 minut. Maska se je po določenem času začela sušiti in s tem, ko se je sušila mi je tudi začelo kožo zategovati. Občutek zame ni moteč.

There was less mask in the pot then last time, although the weight is the same, so I used almost all of it and I like that because it’s hard to store the mask once it’s opened. You are supposed to massage the mask onto a clean and dry face and leave it on up to 15 minutes. The mask did start to dry after a while and while drying it also started to tighten the skin. I don’t mind the feeling.

Maska se umije enostavno, jo je pa potrebno zmehčati z mlačno vodo preden jo začnemo odstranjevati oziroma umivati. Na koži mi je pustila čist občutek, kože mi ni zategovalo, kot pri prejšnji maski in koža se mi ni zmastila dobre tričetrt ure. Maska je dobra a spet nič posebnega in raje posegam po Lushevih maskah. Kupila je več ne bom, predvsem zaradi neprijetnega vonja. Masko sem kupila v Ljubljani v H&M trgovini v Cityparku in zanjo odštela 2,99€. H&M maske za obraz me torej niso najbolj prepričale. A ste že poskusili kakšno? Vam je kakšna posebej všeč?

The mask is easy to wash but you do have to soften it with lukewarm water before we start removing or washing it off. It left a clean feeling on the skin, it didn’t tighten my skin as the previous one did and the skin started getting oily after good three-quarters of an hour. The mask is good but again nothing special and I rather use masks from Lush. I won’t buy it anymore especially because of the unpleasant scent. I bought the mask in Ljubljana in the H&M store in Citypark and paid 2,99€ for it. So the H&M masks didn’t convince me. Have you ever tried any? Did you especially liked any of them?

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 Lover Lamp

Ker je valentinovo pred vrati sem morala poskusit vsaj en izdelek iz Lusha iz te kolekcije. Lover Lamp mi je hitro padla v oči, saj so se mi srčki na bombici kar zasvetili.

Because Valentines is close I had to try at least one product from Lush from that collection. Lover Lamp stood out in my eyes, because the hearts on the bath bomb just lit up. 

lll

Bombica je bele barve s tremi rdečimi srčki. Dišala bi naj po olju brazilske pomaranče in vaniliji. Preden sem bombico vrgla v vodo sem citruse kar fejst vohala, ko se je pa bombica stopila pa je prišla do izraza vanilija, medtem ko citrusov več nisem vohala tako močno. To me sploh ne moti saj imam vanilijo zelo rada. Iz bombice so izplavali trije veliki rdeči srčki in nešteto majhnih srčkov, ki so se postoma topili v vodi. Bombica vsebuje tudi bleščice, ki pa niso tako opazne, saj postane voda mlečno bela. Bombico v akciji si lahko ogledat v videu spodaj.

The bomb is white with three red hearts. It’s supposed to smell like Brazilian orange oil and vanilla. Before I put the bath bomb in the water I could smell the citrus quite well, but when the bomb melted I could smell vanilla more. I don’t mind that because I really like vanilla. Three big red hearts and numerous small hearts came out of the bomb which dissolved gradually. The bath bomb also contains glitter, which is not that noticeable, because the water turns milky white. You can see the bath bomb in action in the video down below.

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, citronska kislina, kakavovo maslo, titanov dioksid, absolut vanilije iz pravične trgovine, olje brazilske pomaranče, organsko ekstra deviško olivno olje, organsko ricinusovo olje, užitni rdeči srčki, limonene, parfum, zlate bleščice, barvilo 14700.

Na gladini vode sem opazila oljnato plast o čemu pričajo tudi sestavine, saj vsebuje bombica veliko olj in kakavovo maslo. Koža je zaradi tega mehka in navlažena. Na koži sicer ostane rahlo masten sloj, ki me v teh mrzlih mesecih ne moti. Bleščice se tudi prilepijo na kožo, zato priporočam, da se po kopanju še na hitro stuširate, da odplaknete bleščice. Lahko jih pa seveda pustite na koži. 🙂 Meni je bila bombica všeč in sigurno si bom kupila še eno, ali dve, ali tri… Zaenkrat je še na voljo v spletni trgovini Lush, kako je s stanjem v trgovinah pa ne bi vedela.

I did notice an oily layer on the surface of the water which is supported by the ingredients, because the bomb does contain a lot of oils and cocoa butter. The skin is soft and moisturized because of that. There is a slightly oily layer left on the skin, but in these cold months I don’t mind. The glitter does also stick to the skin so I recommend a quick shower after the bath, to wash away the glitter. Or you can leave it on the skin. 🙂 I liked the bath bomb and I will definitely buy one more, or two, or three… It’s still available in the Lush online shop, but I don’t know about the situation in stores.

Produkti, ki mi niso všeč #1

Čeprav ponavadi pred nakupom kakega izdelka vedno pregledam ocene, videe, itd. na internetu, pa se zna zgoditi, da za kak izdelek ne najdem ocene ali pa so ocene super, ampak meni izdelek ne ustreza. Zato bom vedno, ko bom imela tri izdelke, tudi to potem napisala in povedala, zakaj meni osebno izdelek ni bil všeč.

Although I usually read many reviews, watch videos, etc. of products before I buy them it sometimes happens that I can’t find a review or the reviews are great, but the product doesn’t work on me. So every time I will have three products that were a miss for me, I will write which ones they were and why I didn’t like them.

1. Artdeco podlaga za ustnice Beauty balm lip base

Ko so mat tekoče šminke postale hit, sem hitro želela slediti množici in jih tudi sama uporabljati. Ker sem brala ocene in izkušnje drugih blogerk, sem se odločila, da bo najboljše, da poiščem bazo za pod šminko, ki bo naredila nošenje le-te tudi bolj prijetno. Ker sem potrebovala nekaj na hitro, sem se odločila kupit izdelek, ki se ga dobi pri nas v trgovini.                                                                                                                             Kupila sem Artdeco Beauty balm lip base. Izdelek sem najprej poskusila brez šminke, torej samo tale »balzam«. Izdelek je precej tekoč, rahlo obarvan, vonj je blag. Neke razlike nisem opazila na samih ustnicah, razen tega, da so bile malo bolj svetle. Sem mislila da bo razlika opazna, ko bom nanesla čez tekočo šminko. Razlike ni bilo. Izdelek ni storil ničesar. Več učinka je imel moj najljubši balzam od Nuxea, kot tale, ki bi naj bil podlaga za šminko. Izdelek naj bi dal ustnicam push-up učinek, podaljšal obstojnost, nevtraliziral barvo ustnic in še kaj, ampak edino kar sem opazila je, da je izdelek posvetil barvo mojih ustnic. Prav tako naj bi bil vlažilen, kar ni. Da, moje ustnice so zahtevne in se hitro izsušijo, ampak ta izdelek jih vsekakor ni obvaroval od tega.                                                                                                                                Za izdelek sem plačala nekaj okoli 13€, kar se mi zdi za nekaj, kar ponavljam, ne naredi ničesar, izredno veliko. Izdelka ne priporočam.

When matte liquid lipsticks became a hit I wanted to follow the crowd and start using them. Because I was reading reviews from other bloggers I decided that it would be best if I found a base for under the lipstick, that will make wearing it much more comfortable. I wanted something quick so I decided to buy a product that was available in our stores.       I bought the Artdeco Beauty balm lip base. I tried the product without the lipstick first, so just the “balm” by itself. The balm is pretty liquid, slightly colored with a mild scent. I didn’t see a difference on the lips except that they were a little lighter. I thought that the difference would be visible when I would apply the liquid lipstick. There was none. The product didn’t do anything. My favorite Nuxe balm had a bigger effect then this one that is supposed to be a base. The product is supposed to give the lips a push-up effect, increase durability, neutralize the color of the lips and so on, but the only thing that I noticed was that it lightened the color of my lips. It is also supposed to be moisturizing and it’s not. Yes, my lips are … and they chap really fast, but this product didn’t prevent that from happening.     I paid around 13€ which is absolutely too much for a product that doesn’t do anything. I don’t recommend this product.

2. Maybelline Instant age Rewind concealer

O tem izdelku sem slišala veliko dobrega. Veliko blogerk je ta korektor hvalilo in ker imam sama zelo temne podočnjake sem ga morala poskusit. Izdelek sem si naročila preko spleta in komaj sem čakala, da ga poskusim. Na mojo žalost sama nisem navdušena nad korektorjem. Najprej naj omenim embalažo. Čeprav je ideja mogoče dobra, pa mi izvedba ni všeč. Da dobim želeno količino produkta moram kar nekaj časa vrteti potisni sistem. Ko končno nekaj produkta pride na aplikator, ki je zelo nehigieničen, ga ne morem razmazati pod očmi, saj tako odstranim tekoči puder, katerega vedno nanesem prvega. Z aplikatorjem zato tapkam pod očmi in ker je aplikator precej trd, se mi zdi da naredim več škode kot koristi na tanki in občutljivi koži. Korektor sicer deloma zakrije moje temne podočnjake in predel pod očmi tudi osvetli, saj sem izbrala en odtenek svetlejšo barvo, kot je moj ten, pa se ne more primerjati z mojim korektorjem od MAC-a. Prav tako sem opazila, da se čez čas nabira v gubicah pod očmi. Korektor sem uporabila tri krat in zdi se mi, da kar izginja. Za korektor sem plačala 9€ in izdelka sigurno ne bom več nikoli kupila.

I heard a lot of good things about this product. A lot of bloggers praised this concealer and because I have dark under eyes circles I had to try it. I ordered it online and I couldn’t wait to try it. Sadly I don’t love it. First let’s start with the packaging. Although the idea may be good the performance isn’t. To get enough product out you have to twist the packaging for quite some time. Finally when the product gets to the applicator, which is really not hygienic, I can’t swipe it under my eyes, because I remove my foundation that I always apply first. I dab the applicator under my eyes instead but the sponge on it is really stiff so I think I do more damage than benefit to my thin and delicate skin. The concealer does partially cover my dark under eye circles and it also lightens the area under my eyes, because I choose one shade lighter than my skin tone, but it can’t even compare to my MAC concealer. I also noticed that it does crease in my wrinkles under my eyes. I used the concealer three times and it looks like it’s vanishing. I paid 9€ and I would not repurchase it.

3. Melvita Arganov oljni gel za prhanje

Čeprav sem nad kremo za roke in kremnim oljem za telo iz iste linije popolnoma navdušena, pa me je ta izdelek razočaral. Konsistenca tega gela ni olje, kot tudi ni tipičen gel, ampak je podobno želeju. Gel vsebuje naravne penilce, zato se tudi le malenkost speni. Jaz imam rada, če gel za tuširanje proizvede bogato peno. Gel bi naj tudi navlažil kožo, ampak pri meni je učinek ravno nasproten. Kožo mi izsuši. Resda imam kožo pozimi izredno občutljivo, ampak od tega gela sem vseeno pričakovala več. Na koži ne pušča filma in kožo verjetno dobro umije, ampak ravno zaradi tega, ker se slabo peni, je občutek na koži čuden. Vonj je nežen, diši najverjetneje kot argan, kar ne morem potrdit, saj ne vem kako argan diši. 🙂 Meni tale gel za prhanje ni všeč in sigurno ga več ne bom kupila. Cena je 16,30€ kar je več kot preveč za, po mojem mnenju, slab izdelek.

Although I love the hand cream and body oil in cream from the same line I don’t like this product. The consistency of this gel is not oil as it’s not a typical gel but it’s more like a jelly. The gel contains natural foaming agents so it only foams slightly. I love when shower gels produce a rich foam. It is supposed to be moisturizing but with me the effect was opposite. It dried out my skin. My skin is really sensitive in the winter but I expected more from this gel. It does not leave a film on the skin and it probably does clean the skin well, but because it foams poorly the feeling on my skin is weird. The scent is gentle, probably like argan, which I can’t confirm, because I have no idea how argan smells. 🙂 I don’t like this shower gel and I won’t repurchase it. The price is 16,30€ which is too much for, in my opinion, bad product.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte! 🙂
