Avene: Thermal water

IMG_8241

S termalno vodo me je par let nazaj spoznala sestra, ko mi je podarila podoben izdelek. Spomnim se, da sem uživala ko sem si pršila s termalno vodo po obrazu v poletni vročini. Od takrat si velikokrat privoščim termalno vodo v spreju.

My sister introduced me to thermal water a few years ago when she introduced me to a similar product. I remember enjoying spritzing the thermal water all over my face in the summer heat. Since then I often treat myself with a spray thermal water.

Avene termalna voda je pakirana v beli visoki pločevinki z oranžnim (in črnim) napisom, podobno kot lak za lase. Sprej razprši vodo izredno fino, čutiti je, kot da vam meglica pada na obraz. Sprej zelo dobro deluje. Termalno vodo lahko kupite v mini različici 50ml ali v večji embalaži (150ml in 300ml). 150 ml bo dovolj za čez poletje, odvisno kako pogosto jo uporabljate seveda.

Avene Thermal water is packaged in a tall white tin with orange (and black) lettering, similar to a hairspray. The spray spritzes the water really fine and it feels like a mist is falling on your face. The spray works really well. You can buy the thermal water in a mini size 50ml or in a bigger packaging (150ml and 300ml). 150ml will be enough for over the summer, depending on how often you use it of course.

Avene trdi, da ima njihova termalna voda potrjeno pomirjujoče delovanje ter da je le-ta primerna za atopično kožo, mastno kožo in kožo nagnjeno k rdečici. Prav tako naj bi bila primerna za nego kože po opeklinah, operativnih posegih, vnetjih, itd.

Avene claims that their thermal water is clinically shown to calm and to be suitable for atopic, oily skin and skin prone to redness. It’s also supposed to be suitable for soothing after skin burns, surgeries, infections, etc.

Sama hranim termalno vodo vedno v hladilniku, pozimi ali poleti, saj mi je občutek hladne meglice na obrazu izredno všeč. Špricam ponavadi iz razdalje okrog 20 cm in pošpricam v obliki črke X čez obraz. To je čisto dovolj. Poleti termalno vodo uporabljam predvsem po izpostavljenosti soncu, saj kožo dejansko pomiri. Termalno vodo uporabljam na čistem obrazu in tudi čez ličila, saj voda ličil ne razmaže (v primeru, da se z vodo ne polivate 🙂 ). Ostanek vode je dobro po par minutah popivnati, ampak ker nanesem res majhno količino, potrebe po tem nimam.

I myself always keep the thermal water in the refrigerator in the summer or winter, because I really like the feeling of a cold mist on my face. I spray it usually from a distance of about 20cm and spray it in a letter X shape across the face. That’s enough. In the summer I use the thermal water after being exposed to the sun, because it actually calms the skin. I use the thermal water on a clean face or over make-up, because the water doesn’t smudge the make-up (in case you don’t splash yourself with the water 🙂 ). It’s good to pat dry the rest of the water but since I use a small amount I don’t have the need to do that.

Pozimi oziroma v času kurilne sezone, ko imam kožo bolj suho kot ponavadi, uporabljam meglico za osvežitev in navlažitev. Iz prve roke lahko torej potrdim, da Avene termalna voda kožo res pomiri in tudi navlaži, uporabljate pa jo lahko čez cel dan in čez celo leto. Sama imam doma 150ml sprej in vedno enega majhnega v torbici, za osvežitev čez dan. Avene termalno vodo lahko kupite v spletni lekarni Lekarnar.com in v drugih lekarnah. Ali mi priporočate še kaj drugega od Avene kozmetike?

In winter or during the heating season when my skin is more dry than usual I use the mist to refresh and moisten the skin. I can therefore confirm, firsthand, that the Avene Thermal water really does calm and moisturize the skin and you can use it throughout the day and year. I have a 150ml bottle at home and a small one as well in my bag for refreshment during the day. You can purchase the Avene Thermal water in an online pharmacy Lekarnar.com and in other pharmacies. Do you recommend anything else from Avene cosmetics?

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.
