Lush: Big Shampoo

IMG_8050

Ker od Lusha še nisem nikoli poskusila ničesar za lase in ker sem prebrala v glavnem dobre stvari o tem šamponu, sem se odločila, da ga poskusim. Prav tako naj omenim že sedaj, da šampona nisem nabavila, ker bi si želela večjega volumna, ampak ker sem imela grozne težave s prhljajem zadnje leto in pol.

Because I’ve never tried anything for hair from Lush and because I read mostly good things about this shampoo I decided to try it out. Also I should mention that I didn’t get the shampoo because I wanted more volume but because I was having terrible problems with dandruff for the last year and a half.

Lush trdi, da je bil ta šampon ustvarjen za čudovit volumen in lesk. Šampon vsebuje veliko grobe morske soli, morske alge in kokos za mehkobo las ter sveže limone in limete za lesk. Moja prva misel pa je bila ta, da morska voda oziroma morska sol ne more škoditi pa še piling lasišča lahko naredim. Prav tako pa limona in limeta pomagata pri boju s prhljajem.

Lush claims that this shampoo was made for volume and shine. The shampoo contains a lot of coarse sea salt, seaweed and coconut for hair softness and fresh lemon and lime for shine. My first thought was that sea water or sea salt can’t be harmful and I can exfoliate my scalp as well. Also lemon and lime are good in fighting dandruff.

Šampon je pakiran v Lushevem velikem črnem lončku. Šampon je belkaste barve in precej gost zaradi soli. Vonj je precej nežen, svež, rahlo sladek z dodatki citrusov. Meni izredno lepo diši in me spominja na morje. Najbolj me je skrbelo, če se bo šampon spenil, ker sama ne maram šamponov, ki se ne penijo. Na moje začudenje se šampon izredno lepo speni. Sama zajamem količino polovice oreha in jo vmasiram v lasišče. Ker ne uporabljam izdelkov za oblikovanje las šamponiram samo lasišče. Sol poskušam čim bolje vmasirati, čeprav nekaj soli pade z las med umivanjem.

The shampoo is packed in a big, black Lush pot. The shampoo is white-ish and pretty thick because of the salt. The scent is pretty gentle, fresh, slightly sweet with a hint of citrus. I really like the smell and it reminds me of the sea. My biggest concern was if the shampoo is going to lather because I don’t like shampoos that don’t lather. To my amazement the shampoo lathers really nicely. I take about half a walnut of the shampoo and massage it into my scalp. Because I don’t use any hair styling products I shampoo only the scalp. I try to massage the salt as good as I can into my scalp although some of the salt does fall off the hair while washing it.

Všeč mi je tisti škripajoč občutek čistosti, ki mi ga šampon nudi, kljub temu pa mi lasišča in las ne izsuši. Izpere se brez težav. Najbolj sem bila presenečena nad tem, da sem že po prvem umivanju imela precej manj prhljaja, sedaj po dveh mesecih uporabe, pa sem se ga rešila dokončno. Lasišče je zdravo, lasje sijoči. Kar se tiče volumna, se v to nisem kaj veliko spuščala, saj imam sama izredno goste in težke lase, tako da mi razen Paul Mitchell Extra Daily Body Boost spreja (kratka ocena tukaj) nič ne pomaga pri tem. Lahko si pa predstavljam, da puncam z veliko “lažjimi” lasmi, doda tudi nekaj volumna.

I like the squeaky clean feeling the shampoo gives me but it doesn’t dry out my scalp or hair though. It washes out without a problem. I was mostly surprised by the fact that already after the first wash I had significantly less dandruff and now after two months of using it I got rid off it finally. The scalp is healthy the hair is shiny. As for the volume I didn’t go into that because I have really thick and heavy hair so nothing but Paul Mitchell’s Extra Daily Body Boost spray (short review here) helps with that. However, I can image that if you have “lighter” hair it does probably add some volume.

Za šampon boste v Lushu odštele 18,95€ za 330g, kar bo meni dovolj za pol leta ali še več, saj lase umivam le dvakrat tedensko. Šampon priporočam tudi, če nimate prhljaja in imate radi zdrav lesk ter popoln občutek čistosti lasišča. Ste že poskusili kakšen šampon ali balzam od Lusha? Kaj še priporočate?

You will pay 18,95€ for 330g in Lush that I’ll have enough for half a year or even more because I wash my hair only twice a week. I also recommend the shampoo if you don’t have dandruff and you like a healthy shine and a complete feeling of a clean scalp. Did you try a shampoo or conditioner from Lush? What do you recommend?

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte. 😉

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.

IMG_7851

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.

Lush: Imperialis

IMG_7517

Lusheva kozmetika za nego obraza me je vedno mikala, ampak se nikoli nisem odločila za nakup. Potem pa sem se, po raziskovanju njihove spletne strani, odločila, da poskusim Imperialis kot jutranjo/dnevno kremo. Kremo sem izbrala predvsem na dejstvu, da je za mešano kožo.

I was always tempted to try the face care cosmetics from Lush, but I never decided to buy it. Then, after exploring their website, I decided to try Imperialis as a morning/daily moisturizer. I chose the cream primarily because of the fact, that it is for combination skin.

Krema je pakirana v črnem lončku s pokrovom na navoj, kot je tipično za Lush. Lusheva embalaža je praktična in učinkovita. Krema je svetlo bež, skoraj bele barve z dodatkom rožnate in je lahke teksture. Meni osebno diši kot zeleni čaj z limono, čeprav ne vsebuje ne zelenega čaja ne limone. 😀 Čeprav vsebuje sivko pa jo redko zaznam.

The cream is packaged in a black pot with a screw on lid, which is typical for Lush. Lush packaging is practical and effective. The cream is a light beige, almost white color with a hint of rosiness and light texture. To me personally it smells like green tea with lemon, although it doesn’t contain neither the green tea nor the lemon. 😀 Although it contains lavender I can rarely smell it.

IMG_7521

Lush trdi, da je Imperialis sivkina krema za mešano kožo, ki bi naj spravila kožo v ravnovesje. Sivka uravnava izločanje loja, vodica pomarančnih cvetov izboljša pigmentacijo kože, karitejevo maslo in olivno olje pa nahranita pore.

Lush states that Imperialis is a lavender cream for combination skin, which is supposed to restore the skin balance. The lavender regulates sebum secretion, orange flower absolute improves pigmentation of the skin, Shea butter and olive oil nourish the pores.

Krema je, kot sem že omenila, lahke teksture in zaradi tega tudi izredno mazljiva, kar pomeni, da ne porabimo veliko produkta za cel obraz. Hitro se vpije, tako da je primerna tudi za pod ličila. Jaz jo uporabljam zjutraj, takoj ko se umijem, si nanesem še kremo in tako se dan začne. Svež vonj me prebudi, koža pa je navlažena.

The cream is, as I have already mentioned, very light in texture and therefore also very spreadable, which means, that we don’t use a lot of product for the whole face. It absorbs quickly, so it’s also suitable for under the make-up. I use it in the morning, as soon as I wash my face I apply the cream and that’s how the day starts. The fresh scent wakes me up, the skin is moisturized.

IMG_7522

Krema mi je izredno všeč, ima odlične sestavine in tudi draga ni, saj stane 18,45€ za 45g, kar bo dovolj za sigurno vsaj pol leta. Jaz jo bom definitivno še kupila, saj se mi zdi, da jo ima moja koža res rada. Kremo priporočam vsem, ki imate mešano kožo, ostali pa poglejte malo po spletni strani ali pa se napotite v Lushevo trgovino, če imate možnost, saj vam bodo prijazne trgovke svetovale in verjamem, da boste našli nekaj zase.

I really like the cream, it has great ingredients and it’s not expensive, as it costs 18,45€ for 45g, which will be enough for at least half a year. I will definitely buy it again, because I feel, that my skin really loves it. I recommend the cream to everyone who has combination skin, while others can look through the website or go to a Lush store, if you have the chance, because the friendly merchants will advise you and I believe that you will find something for yourself.
