Produkti, ki mi niso všeč #2

Sicer je takih produktov bolj malo, saj se vedno potrudim, da izdelke preučim pred nakupom in da pogledam ocene drugih uporabnikov a včasih enostavno ni časa za to in kupim kaj na blef. 🙂 Zato sem spet našla 3 produkte, ki mi niso odgovarjali. To ne pomeni, da produkti niso dobri, to pomeni, da meni osebno niso všeč. Pa poglejmo kaj se je tokrat znašlo na tem seznamu.

There are not a lot of products I don’t like because I always do my best to research the product before buying it and to check reviews from other users, but sometimes there just isn’t any time for that and I buy something on a whim. 🙂 That’s why I found 3 products that didn’t work for me. This doesn’t mean that they aren’t good it just means that I personally didn’t like them. So let’s see what made the list this time.

THE BODY SHOP – VITAMIN E GENTLE FACIAL WASH

Nujno sem potrebovala nekaj za umivanje obraza in odstranjevanje ličil in ker sem načeloma navdušena nad njihovimi izdelki sem se odločila poskusiti s tem. Ker je pisalo, da je primeren tudi za umivanje ličil in da je nežen do kože ter primeren za vse tipe kože, sem mislila da z njim ne morem zgrešit. Prva napaka je bila že ta, da produkta nisem povonjala pred nakupom. Ne vem če je moj bil pokvarjen ali ne, ampak smrdel je dobesedno po plastelinu in vonj je bil zelo moteč. Ličila je sicer resda dobro umil, ampak kožo mi je po uporabi izredno zategovalo, tako da težko rečem, da je nežen do kože, saj moja mešana koža drugače ni občutljiva. Gela več ne bom nikoli kupila in ga tako tudi seveda ne priporočam.

I needed something for washing my face and removing make-up and because I’m generally impressed with their products I decided to try it out. Because it stated that it’s suitable for washing off make-up and that it’s gentle to the skin I didn’t think I could go wrong with it. The first mistake was that I didn’t smell the product before buying it. I don’t know if mine was bad or not but it smelled like play-doh and the scent was really disturbing. I did however wash off the make-up well but my skin was feeling very tight after using it so I can’t say that it’s gentle to the skin because my combination skin isn’t sensitive otherwise. I won’t buy the gel anymore and of course I don’t recommend it either.

ESSENCE – STAY ALL DAY 16 HOUR LONG-LASTING CONCEALER

Vedno rada poskusim nove korektorje, še posebej v nižjem cenovnem razredu, tako sem ob obisku Mullerja na hitro pograbila tega. Moja napaka je bila ta, da nisem prebrala dobro embalaže. Edino kar sem videla je, da bi naj bil dolgo obstojen. Sama imam rada korektorje, ki zelo dobro prekrivajo in čeprav bi tudi ta naj to naredil pa tega ne opravi dovolj dobro. Korektor na meni dobesedno izgine. Poskusila sem ga razmazati tudi s prsti in učinek ni bil nič kaj boljši. O tem ali je dolgoobstojen ne morem komentrirati, saj sem čez ta korektor potem nanesla drugega. Čeprav je korektor bil cenovno ugoden ga žal ne priporočam, saj je v mojem primeru bilo enako z ali brez tega korektorja.

I always like to try new concealers especially in the lower price range so I snatched this one while visiting Muller. My mistake was that I didn’t read the label very well. The only thing I saw was that it’s supposed to be long-lasting. I love concealers that cover really well and although this one is supposed to do the same it doesn’t do the job good enough. The concealer literally disappears on me. I tried blending it with my fingers but the effect wasn’t any better. I can’t really comment on whether it’s long-lasting or not because I had to use another concealer over this one. Although the concealer was affordable I can’t recommend it because in my case it would be the same with or without it.

SOAP & GLORY – SCRUB YOUR NOSE IN IT

Ta izdelek se ni slučajno znašel v moji košarici, saj sem se pred nakupom posvetila raziskavi. Ocene uporabnikov so bile v glavnem dobre in ob obisku Douglas-a v Avstriji sem ga tudi kupila. Piling je svetlo modre barve, goste konsistence in diši rahlo po mentolu. Sama imam rada malo bolj grobe pilinge kar ta piling ni. Piling zrnc je sicer veliko a so te tako drobne da moram s prsti močno pritisniti ob kožo, da sploh čutim učinek pilinga. Sam produkt daje na koži hladen občutek. Piling sem sicer dolgo časa uporabljala in mu dala veliko priložnosti, da se izkaže, a nikoli nisem bila zadovoljna z učinkom. Koža je sicer bila čista po uporabi a to opravi tudi moj gel za umivanje obraza. Če imate radi nežni pilingi potem bi mogoče bil dober za vas. Meni ni bil všeč in ga več ne bom kupila.

This product didn’t accidentally get in my cart because I did my research before buying it. The user reviews were mostly good and while visiting the Douglas store in Austria I bought it. The exfoliator is a light blue color with thick consistency and smells slightly of mint. I myself like more coarse exfoliators which this one isn’t. There are a lot of exfoliating granules but they are so small I really have to press hard against my skin to even feel any effect of the exfoliator. The product itself gives a cooling feeling on the skin. I used the exfoliator for a long time and I gave it plenty of opportunities to prove itself but I’ve never been satisfied with the effect. The skin was clean after using it but my face cleansing gel does the same. If you like gentle exfoliators then it might be good for you. I didn’t like it and I won’t buy it again.

To so bili torej trije izdelki, ki so me razočarali oziroma kateri mi niso bili dovolj všeč, da bi jih priporočala drugim ali jih ponovno kupila. Če vas zanima kateri trije so se prejšnjič znašli na tem seznamu ga lahko najdete TUKAJ.

So these were the three products that disappointed me or I didn’t like them enough to recommend them to others or even re-buy them. If you would like to know which three products have previously disappointed me you can find the list HERE.

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte. 😉

Adventni koledarji

Adventne koledarje poznamo že od malega, ko smo jih dobivali decembra in vsak dan veselo odpirali ter jedli čokoladice in bonbončke, ki so se skrivali notri. Adventni koledarji so se od takrat razvili v nekaj več, nekaj česar se ne veselijo le otroci, ampak tudi odrasli. Tako lahko kupimo adventne koledarje, ki vsebujejo tudi alkohol, cigare, igrače, lake za nohte in seveda tudi kozmetiko. Predvsem ta zadnji me je najbolj razveselil.

We’ve known about advent calendars from an early age, when we used to get them in December and happily opened them every day to find and eat the chocolates and candy that were hiding inside. Advent calendars have since evolved into something more, something that not only children are happy about but adults as well. We can now buy advent calendars that contain alcohol, cigars, toys, nail polish and cosmetics of course. The last of those is the one that bring me the most happiness.

Adventni koledar s kozmetiko, naj bo negovalna ali dekorativna, bo razveselil marsikatero punco, ženo, prijateljico, mamo oziroma vse, ki imamo rade kozmetiko. Sama se nekako mogoče celo bolj nagibam k negovalni kozmetiki kot dekorativni, saj zelo rada preizkušam nove kremice, losijone,… Jaz vam bom tukaj ponudila par opcij, vendar pa se v Sloveniji zaenkrat še kar težko dobi kakšen dober adventni koledar, tako da če se boste odločile za kakšnega predlagam, da malo pobrskate po spletu. 😉

An advent calendar with cosmetics, care cosmetics or make-up, will bring joy to almost any girlfriend, wife, friend, mom or anyone that likes cosmetics. I myself am thinking more of care cosmetics than make-up, because I love to test out new cremes, lotions,… Here I will offer you a few options but in Slovenia it’s still quite difficult to get a good advent calendar so if you choose to get one I recommend looking online. 😉

  1. LUSH 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS 52,95GBP

gallery-1475252336-beauty-advent-calendar-2016-lush

Naj začnem kar z Lush adventnim koledarjem, saj kot veste, sem obsedena z Lushem. Čeprav mislim, da se ga v Sloveniji ne bo dalo kupiti pa angleška Lusheva stran pošilja tudi k nam, tako da si ga lahko vseeno naročite.

Let me start with the Lush advent calendar because as you know I’m crazy about Lush. Although I think you can’t get it in Slovenia you can still order it on the English site and get it delivered to Slovenia.

2. THE BODY SHOP

55096m_z

Spet eno podjetje, ki se ne da kupiti pri nas, vendar pa imate The Body Shop v sosednjih državah, tako da če boste kaj potovali naokoli lahko obiščete kakšno trgovino. Letos nudijo 3 različne koledarje, za 95€, 130€ ali 160€.

This is again a company that isn’t available in Slovenia but you can buy it in the neighboring countries so if you’ll travel around you can visit a store there. This year they’re offering 3 different calendars, for 95€, 130€ or 160€.

     3. W7 COSMETICS 34,99€

c700x420

Seveda sem poiskala tudi koledarje, ki se dajo kupiti/naročiti v Sloveniji in W7 je eden izmed takih. Naročite ga lahko na Ličila.si strani. Notri boste našli šminke, lake za nohte, senčila in še več dobrot.

Of course I looked for calendars that you can buy/order in Slovenia and W7 is one of those. You can order it on the Ličila.si site. Inside you will find lipsticks, nail polishes, eyeshadows and many more goodies.

     4. FEELUNIQUE 30GBP

gallery-1475254128-beauty-advent-calendar-2016-feelunique

Ker tudi sama kupujem na tej spletni strani in ker pri njih lahko kupite ogromno različnih kozmetičnih produktov, me izmed vseh še najbolj tale mika, pa tudi cena se mi zdi primerna. Na voljo od 3. novembra na njihovi spletni strani.

Because I myself buy from this website and because you can buy a lot of different cosmetic products from them I’m mostly tempted to buy this one and the price is good as well. It will be available from November 3rd on their website.

     5. MAKEUP REVOLUTION (ok. 30€)

gallery-1475507727-beauty-advent-calendar-2016-makeup-revolution

Čeprav datuma prihoda adventnega koledarja in točne cene še nisem uspela dobiti, pa so mi potrdili, da ga bodo na spletni strani Makeuprevoluton.si sigurno dobili.

Although I couldn’t get an arrival date or the price for this advent calendar they did confirm that they will surely have it on their website Makeuprevolution.si.

Kot sem vam omenila je teh adventnih koledarjev res ogromno in verjamem, da boste tudi pri nas dobili kakšnega, ki vam bo všeč. Jaz si bom skoraj zagotovo kupila kakšnega in v tem primeru ga bom tudi na blogu predstavila in pokazala s čim so me presenetili.

As I mentioned there are a lot of advent calendars and I believe that you will find one for yourself. I will probably get one for myself and in that case I will also review it here and show you what they surprised me with.

Potovalna make-up torbica

travelCollage

Tokrat sem se odločila deliti z vami kaj nesem s seboj, ko grem na dopust. Načeloma vedno poskušam spakirati čim manj stvari in čeprav sem prej ponavadi nesla kar vse s sabo, pa sem sedaj res pridna, saj nesem le “nujne” stvari. Kljub temu nekaj opcij potrebujem, zato moja kozmetična torbica v nobenem primeru ni prazna.

This time I decided to share with you what I take with me, when I go on vacation. In principal I always try to pack as little as I can and although I used to take everything, I’m really good now, because I take only “necessary” things. Nevertheless I do still need some options, so my cosmetics bag is in no way empty.

travel1Collage

Naj začnem pri bazi. S seboj nesem dve bazi, eno za obraz in eno za oči. Za obraz poleti največkrat uporabljam The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser in pa Essence I ❤ Stage baza za oči. Naslednji je tekoči puder. Ker sem popolnoma navdušena nad Clinique Beyond perfecting foundation + concealer tekočim pudrom (ocena tukaj), gre absolutno z mano, ampak z mano potuje tudi Burjois Serum foundation, za dneve, ko ne želim polno prekrivnega pudra. Catrice Camoflauge concealer je zadnje čase edini korektor katerega uporabljam, zato gre tudi ta z mano. Tekoči puder in korektor vedno fiksiram in v ta namen vzamem Maybelline Shine Free loose powder ter MAC blotting powder.

Let’s start with the base. I take two with me, one for the face and one for the eyes. In the summer I usually use The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser and the Essence I ❤ Stage eyeshadow base. Next is liquid foundation. Since I’m totally impressed with the Clinique Beyond perfecting foundation + concealer (review here), I absolutely take it with me, but I take Burjois Serum foundation as well, for days when I don’t want a full coverage foundation. Catrice Camouflage concealer is the only concealer I’ve been using lately, so this one is also coming with. I always set my foundation and concealer and I take Maybelline Shine Free loose powder and MAC blotting powder for that.

travel2Collage

Barve vsekakor ne morejo manjkati in zato bom začela kar s paleto za oči. Paleto senčil izberem glede na to, koliko opcij želim imeti. Največkrat potuje z mano Zoeva Warm Spectrum palette (ocena tukaj), saj mi nudi veliko opcij, ki so vedno dobrodošle. Za obraz bom prav tako vzela Zoevino paleto Coral (ocena tukaj) iz istega razloga, saj imam več opcij. Osvetljevalec je nujno potreben in tokrat sem se odločila za The Balm Manizer sisters paleto (ocena tukaj). Edini bronzer katerega trenutno uporabljam in ga pod nobenim pogojem ne bi pustila doma je Urban Decay Beached bronzer (ocena tukaj). 🙂

Colors definitely can’t be missing and because of that I’ll start with the eyeshadow palette. I choose an eyeshadow palette depending on how many options I like to have. Most of the time I take the Zoeva Warm Spectrum palette (review here), because it offers a lot of options, that are always welcome. For the face I’ll take Zoeva Coral blush palette (review here) for the same reason, more options. Highlighter is extremely necessary and this time I decided for The Balm Manizer sisters palette (review here). The only bronzer I’m using at this time and wouldn’t leave it at home under any circumstances is Urban Decay Beached bronzer (review here).

IMG_7878

Na koncu ne smem nikakor pozabiti še na maskaro, ki je v tem primeru MAC Haute & Naughty lash (ocena tukaj) in barvico za obrvi NYX ter Essence gel za obrvi Make me brow, brez katerega ne morem živeti. Za ustnice ponavadi vzamem kakšno mat obstojno šminko, barvico za ustnice, glos in še kakšno šminko. Tokrat gredo z mano NYX Soft matte lip cream v barvi Morroco, Essence Longlasting barvici za ustnice v barvi 04 Peach Beauty in 05 Lovely Frappuccino (ocena tukaj), Khroma Beauty lip glosa v barvah Raw Honey in Wildflower Honey (ocena tukaj), ter Stila Stay All Day liquid lipstick v odtenku Amalfi, Essence šminka (LE 50’s Girls Reloaded) 02 I’m Sailing in H&M šminka 023 Powder Puff (ocena kmalu).

In the end I can’t forget the mascara, which is in this case MAC Haute & Naughty lash (review here) and an eyebrow pencil from NYX as well as the Essence eyebrow gel Make me brow, that I can’t live without. For the lips I usually take a matte long wearing lipstick, lip liner, gloss and some lipstick. This time I’ll be taking NYX Soft matte lip cream in Morroco, Essence Longlasting lipliners in the shade 04 Peach Beauty and 05 Lovely Frappuccino (review here), Khroma Beauty lip gloss in the colors Raw Honey and Wildflower Honey (review here) as well as Stila Stay All Day liquid lipstick in Amalfi, Essence lipstick (LE 50’s Girls Reloaded) 02 I’m Sailing and H&M lipstick 023 Powder Puff (review soon).

IMG_7881

Seveda ne smemo pozabiti še na čopiče in pa Beauty Blender. Pri čopičih nisem izbirčna, saj jih nimam tako veliko in vedno vzamem vse s seboj. To je vse kar bom tokrat nesla s seboj na dopust. V komentarju spodaj pa mi napišite brez česa vi ne morete na dopust?

Of course I can’t forget my brushes and my Beauty Blender. I’m not picky with the brushes, because I don’t have that many so I always take them all with me. This is what I’ll be taking on vacation this time. What items do you take while vacationing? Leave me a comment.

The Body Shop: Mandljeva krema in milo za roke

tbs

Ta dva izdelka sem dobila v darilnem setu. Prvi del darilnega paketa sem že opisala tukaj. Drugi del, torej kremo in milo za roke, pa bom sedaj.

I got these two products in a gift set. I reviewed the first part of the gift set here. The second part, the hand wash and the cream, I will review now.

Kremo za roke sem že uporabljala in že od nekdaj mi je všeč. Najprej naj omenim embalažo. Krema je v aluminijasti tubi, ki se zelo rada zmečka in meni ni najbolj všeč, ampak je praktična in uporabna saj, ko je kreme vedno manj, lahko tubo zvijemo.

I already used the hand cream and I always liked it. First let me mention the packaging. The cream is in a aluminum tube that likes to crumple and I don’t like that, but it is practical and useful, because when there’s less and less cream, we can roll up the tube.

IMG_6594

Sama krema je bele barve, zelo dobro mazljiva, ravno prav gosta. Krema diši kot celotna mandljeva linija, po sladkih mandljih oziroma marcipanu. Krema se hitro vpije, ne pušča mastnega občutka, samo nežne roke. Vonj na rokah se obdrži kar nekaj časa, dobri dve uri ali več (odvisno kako pogosto umivate roke). Krema mi roke navlaži in nahrani, občutek na koži je super, kar je glede na to, da je olje sladkega mandlja že na četrtem mestu (čeprav bi lahko bilo tudi višje), tudi pričakovano. Kreme se porabi malo, tako da bo ena tuba dolgo zdržala. Kremo priporočam, še posebej, če vam je všeč vonj po marcipanu. Cena kreme je 8€.

The cream itself is white, very well spreadable, with just the right thickness. The cream smells like the whole almond line, like sweet almonds or marzipan. The cream absorbs quickly, it doesn’t leave a greasy feeling, just soft hands. The smell stays on the skin quite some time, about two hours or more (depending how often you wash your hands). It moisturizes and nourishes my hands, the feeling on the skin is great, which is expected, given the fact that the sweet almond oil is in fourth place (although it could be higher) in ingredients. One tube will last you a long time, because you don’t need a lot. I do recommend the cream, especially if you like the smell of marzipan. It costs 8€.

The Body Shop trdi, da milo za roke v bistvu ne vsebuje mila. Milo je v plastični embalaži s pumpico. En pritisk na pumpico je dovolj da dobro umijemo roke. Milo se dobro speni, dobro umije in se enostavno spere. Na koži na pušča filma. Diši kot celotna linija, torej po sladkih mandljih oziroma po marcipanu. Milo bi naj kožo na rokah navlažilo, kar težko potrdim ali zanikam, edino kar lahko izpostavim je, da mi kože definitivno ne izsuši, kar je velik plus. Vonj se na rokah obdrži dobre pol ure. Cena mila je 7€.

The Body Shop states that the hand wash is soap-free. The wash is in a plastic packaging with a pump. One pump is enough to wash the hands well. The hand wash foams well, cleans good and washes off easily. It doesn’t leave a film on the skin. It smells like the whole line, like sweet almonds or marzipan. The wash is supposed to moisturize the hands, which I can’t confirm or deny, the only thing I can point out is that is definitely doesn’t dry out my skin, which is a big plus. The scent stays on the hands half an hour. The price for the wash is 7€.

IMG_6591

Če zaključim, lahko povem, da je krema za roke res super. Milo ni slabo a ga verjetno ne bi več kupila, saj rada vedno preizkušam nova. Pilica in olje za nohte pa mi nista všeč in ju tudi ne bi več kupila. Ste preizkusile katerega izmed ocenjenih izdelkov. So vam bili všeč? Pustite mi komentar spodaj.

To conclude, I can say that the hand cream is really great. The hand wash is not bad but I probably wouldn’t buy it anymore, because I like to try out new things. The file and the nail oil I didn’t like and I wouldn’t buy them again. Did you try any of the reviewed products? Did you like them? Leave me a comment below.

The Body Shop: Mandljevo olje za nohte & obnohtno kožico in pilica za nohte

Ta dva izdelka sem dobila v setu za rojstni dan. V setu so bili štirje izdelki: milo za roke, krema za roke, olje za obnohtno kožico in nohte ter pilica za nohte. Škatla je dobre velikosti in mi v kopalnici služi za shranjevanje.

I got these two products in a set for my birthday. There were four products in the set: a hand wash, hand cream, nail & cuticle oil and a nail file. The box is a good size and I use it for storage in my bathroom.

IMG_6583

Olje je v priročni embalaži s potisnim sistemom, čopičem za enostavni nanos in mehko potisno gumico za obnohtno kožico. Embalaža mi je všeč, saj je res enostavna za uporabo.

The oil is in a convenient package with a twist system, a brush for easy application and a soft rubbery cuticle pusher for the nail cuticle. I like the packaging, because it’s really easy to use.

IMG_6585

IMG_6589

Olje je rahlo gosto, ni čisto tekoče, kot olja ponavadi so. Je prozorno z rahlim rumenim odtenkom. Z lahkoto ga razmažem okoli nohta s čopičem. Olje sem pustila na obnohtni kožici dobro uro, potem pa sem ga vmasirala v noht in kožico. Vpije se hitro. Vonj je sladek, diši po marcipanu. S potisno gumico sem obnohtno kožico potisnila z nohta in moram povedati, da ni šlo tako enostavno, kot sem vajena. Čeprav se mi je zdelo, da olje ne more biti slabo, saj je pač olje in deluje, ampak izgleda, da ni tako. Olje je sicer zmehčalo kožico, ampak se mi zdi da ne tako, kot druga olja. Prav tako me je presenetilo, da mi obnohtne kožice ni nahranilo niti kaj preveč navlažilo, saj je bila drugi dan kožica precej suha. Prav tako je olja zelo malo (1,8ml) in, če kupite “svinčnik” posebej, je cena kar zasoljena (12€) za tako malo produkta. Jaz bom olje porabila, ne bi ga pa več kupila.

The oil is lightly thick, it’s not as liquid as oils usually are. It’s transparent with a hint of yellow. I easily spread it around my nail with the brush. I left the oil on my cuticle for a good hour, then I massaged it into my nail and cuticle. It absorbs quickly. The scent is sweet, it smells like marzipan. I pushed my cuticle away from the nail with the rubbery pusher and I have to say that it didn’t go as easy as I’m used to. Although I thought that the oil can’t be bad, it’s an oil and it works, but it seems that that’s not the case. The oil did soften my cuticle, but not as good as the other oils do. It also surprised me that the oil didn’t nourish nor did it moisturize my cuticle, because my cuticle was pretty dry the next day. Also there is not a lot of oil (1,8ml) and if you buy this “pencil” by itself, the price is quite steep (12€) for that little product. I will use the oil up, but will never repurchase.

IMG_6597

S pilico prav tako nisem zadovoljna. Najprej me je zmotila oblika, saj ne maram kvadratnih pilic, imam raje ploščate, tako da brez težav pridem pod noht. S to pilico je bilo to nemogoče. Pilica ima štiri ploskve, štiri različne teksture, ki nohte skrajšajo, očistijo, zgladijo in spolirajo. Tale pilica nohtov ne bo skrajšala oziroma potrebovali boste veliko več časa in truda, da noht skrajšate. Jaz sem poskusila z enim nohtom, potem pa sem jo hitro zamenjala za mojo Essence profesionalno pilico 4 v 1, ki svoje delo opravi hitro in učinkovito. Edino, za kar je bila ta pilica dobra, je bila za glajenje in poliranje nohtov, vendar pa moja Essence pilica naredi isto. Zato je bila tale pilica veliko razočaranje. Pilico lahko tudi posebej kupite, ampak je jaz ne priporočam. Cena izdelka je 5€.

I also wasn’t too happy with the file either. First of all I don’t like the shape of it, because I don’t like square files, I like flat ones, so I can get under my nail easily. This was impossible with this file. The file has four surfaces, four different textures that shorten the nail, clean it, smooth and polish the nail. This file won’t shorten the nail or you will need much more time and effort to shorten it. I tried with one nail and then replaced it quickly with my Essence professional nail file 4 in 1, that does its job fast and effective. The only thing this file is good for is to smooth and polish the nails, but my Essence file can do the same. This was a big disappointment for me. You can buy the file on its own, but I don’t recommend it. The price is 5€.

IMG_6596

Vseeno se veselim preizkušanju mila za roke, saj kremo že poznam in mi je tudi zelo všeč. Ocene drugih dveh izdelkov kmalu na blogu. Ste že poskusili katerega od naštetih produktov? Kaj je vaše mnenje?

Still I can’t wait to try the hand soap, because I already know the cream and I really like it. The reviews of the other two products soon on my blog. Did you try any of the listed products? What is your opinion?

Radi se imejte in veliko se smejte. 🙂

Moja nega obraza

Naj začnem s tipom moje kože na obrazu. Moja koža je mešana. Torej T-predel imam masten (pa spet ne preveč masten, ampak normalno masten), kožo na licih pa imam normalno, pozimi suho. Ne pozabimo še na moje pore, ki so ogromne. Ravno zaradi tega, se moja nega obraza med poletjem in zimo razlikuje. Pozimi uporabljam malo bolj hranilne in vlažilne kreme, kot poleti, ravno zaradi tega, ker je moja koža na določenih predelih veliko bolj suha, kot poleti. Pa tudi masti se ne toliko, kot poleti. Z aknami nimam večjih težav, tu pa tam se pojavi kak manjši »izbruh«, ki je ponavadi povezan z nihanjem hormonov. Pa začnimo:

Let me start with my skin type. I have combination skin type which means that my T-zone is greasy (not too greasy, but normally greasy), the skin on my cheeks is normal, dry in the winter time. Let’s not forget my pores which are huge. Because of that my skin care routine differs between summer and winter time. In the winter I use a bit more moisturizing and nourishing creams than in the summer time, because my skin is drier on certain areas on my face in that time of the year. I don’t have problems with acne, I get a hormonal breakout every now and then. So let’s start:

1.a Vsak večer najprej umijem obraz. Če imam na sebi ličila, potem uporabim Melvitin peneči čistilni žele, če pa sem brez ličil pa obraz umijem z Nuxe Reve de Miel gelom za čiščenje obraza in odstranjevanje ličil. To je, kar se umivanja in odstranjevanja ličil tiče, pri meni vse.

IMG_6132IMG_6290

1.a Every night I wash my face. If I have make-up on then I use the Melvita gentle cleansing jelly, but if I’m without make-up then I use Nuxe Reve de Miel face cleansing and make-up removing gel to wash my face. When it comes to cleansing my face, this is it.

1.b Na vsakih par dni naredim še piling obraza, s katerim odstranim odmrlo kožo. Uporabljam Soap & glory Scrub your nose in it, ki sicer ni moj najljubši, ampak še vedno iščem idealen piling za obraz.

10160235

1.b Every couple of days I exfoliate my face to remove dead skin cells. I use Soap & Glory Scrub your nose in it, which is not my favorite, but I’m still looking for the perfect face scrub.

2. Če menim, da nisem odstranila vseh ličil, potem uporabim Simple Kind to skin micelarno vodo, katero nanesem na vato in potegnem po predelih, kjer mislim, da je potrebno.

IMG_6301

2. If I think that I haven’t removed all of the make-up then I use my Simple Kind to skin micellar cleansing water which I apply on a cotton pad and swipe the areas where I think is necessary.

3. Naslednji je losjon za obraz od The Body Shopa, Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Bi-phase essence lotion, ki je nujno potreben, da dodatno navlažim kožo. Ponavadi ga nanašam le na dele obraza, ki dodatno nego potrebujejo, torej na lica, T-predel v veliki večini časa preskočim.

3. Next is a lotion for the face from The Body Shop, Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Bi-phase essence lotion, which is necessary to additionally moisturize the skin. I usually apply it only to parts of the face that need extra care, therefore on the cheeks. I skip the T-zone most of the time.

4. Nato nanesem kremo za nego kože okoli oči, katero nanesem pod očmi in tudi na veko. Uporabljam Caudalie Vinosource creme S.O.S..

4. Then I apply my eye cream under the eyes and on my eyelids. I use Caudalie Vinosource creme S.O.S..

5. Na koncu nanesem še kremo za obraz od The Body Shopa, Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising cream, ki je sicer lahka krema in v trenutkih, ko potrebujem malo več, potem nanesem losjon iz 3. koraka po celem obrazu.

5. Last but not the least is my face moisturizer from The Body Shop, Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising cream, which is a light cream, so in moments when I need a little bit more I apply the lotion from step 3. all over the face.

Enkrat na teden tudi uporabim masko za obraz, The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy sleeping mask, in takrat preskočim 5. korak, kajti s to masko tudi spim. Prav tako uporabljam Lushevo Cup O’coffee masko, ki je zamenjala mojo Brazened honey svežo masko po dobrih 8ih letih uporabe. Takrat uporabim kremo kot ponavadi. Ocena Lusheve Cup O’coffee maske kmalu na blogu. Oceni Melvitinega penečega želeja in TBS Bouncy sleeping maske pa lahko najdete tukaj.

Once a week I use a face mask, The Body Shop Drop of Youth Bouncy sleeping mask, and in that case I skip step 5, because I sleep with that mask. I also use the Lush Cup O’coffee mask, that replaced my Brazened honey fresh mask after 8 years of use. In that case I use my moisturizer as usual. I will review the Lush Cup O’coffee mask soon. You can find the reviews of the Melvita jelly and The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy sleeping mask here.

Moji najljubši izdelki leta 2015 #1

IMG_6150Moje najljubše izdelke bom razdelila v dve skupini in sicer v eni skupini bodo samo ličila in produkti, ki se uporabljajo ob ličenju, v drugi skupini pa bodo negovalni izdelki, izdelki za lase in ostalo. Danes bomo kar začeli z izdelki za nego telesa, las, ipd.

I am going to split my favorite products into two groups. The first group are going to be the body and face care products, hair products and such. The second group will include make-up and make-up related products.

1. MELVITA – PENEČI ČISTILNI ŽELE / GENTLE CLEANSING JELLY

Žele sem kupila v začetku prejšnjega leta in hitro je postal moj priljubljeni izdelek za odstranjevanje ličil. Nikoli nisem marala odstranjevanja ličil v več korakih. Pri meni pride v poštev le eden, izjemoma dva. Zmočim obraz, vsebino pritisnem 3X iz pumpice v dlan in umijem obraz. Žele brezhibno odstrani ves make-up z mojega obraza: tekoči puder, maskaro (seveda ne vodoodporne, kar je razumljivo, saj ni v ta namen), tudi temna senčila, črtalo in še kaj. Kljub temu, da učinkovito opravi svoje poslanstvo odstranjevanja, je zelo nežen in mi kože nič ne izsuši, prav tako ne pušča filma na koži po uporabi. Vonj je zelo nežen in nevsiljiv. Ta je že drugi, katerega sem kupila in zaenkrat ne razmišljam o menjavi.IMG_6132I bought this jelly in the beginning of last year and it quickly became my favorite product for removing make-up. I never liked removing my make-up in several steps. One step cleanse is enough for me. I usually wet my face, place 3 pumps of the jelly in my hands and wash my face. This jelly removes all of the make-up from my face, the foundation, mascara (not waterproof mascaras, of course, since it is not meant for such purpose), dark eyeshadows, liner and whatever I have on. It’s very gentle and it does not dry out my skin, it also does not leave any kind of film on my skin. The smell is very gentle. I already bought a new one and for the moment I am not thinking about replacing it.

2. PAUL MITCHELL – EXTRA BODY DAILY BOOST

Ta sprej za volumen las sem kupila približno 2-3 mesece nazaj in nisem imela velikih pričakovanj. Na moje pozitivno presenečenje se je izkazal za zelo učinkovitega. Imam težke, ravne lase, izredno goste in tanke. Sprej uporabim tako, da po umivanju lase, posušene v brisači, razčešem in sprej pršim čim bližje lasišču, po predelih od levega temena pa vse do desnega. Potem lase posušim in voila. Volumen je tu. 😀 Sprej se med sušenjem nekoliko čuti pod prsti, ni tak, kot da ga ne bi bilo 🙂 , ampak ni sploh moteče. Volumen ostane do naslednjega pranja. Pri tovrstnih izdelkih je bistvenega pomena to, da odkrijemo ravno pravo mero doziranja, saj je kaj kmalu lahko izdelka preveč in posledično ne dosežemo želenega učinka, ob tem seveda takoj sklenemo, da je izdelek slab, pa ni temu vedno tako. Se mi zdi, da pri izdelkih za volumen las velja pravilo ”manj je več”. Vsekakor je smotrno začeti z manjšo količino in v kolikor niste dobile želenega rezultata, nadaljevati z večanjem. V kolikor tudi z večjo količino izdelka ne boste zadovoljne, potem lahko nekako sklenete, da proizvod ni za vas. Se zna zgoditi, da kakšnemu dobremu izdelku zaradi neustrezne uporabe naredimo krivico in neupravičeno gre mimo nas.IMG_6120I bought this one a few months ago and I didn’t have high expectations but it proved me wrong. I have straight, heavy, extremely dense but thin hair. I use the spray on my towel dry and brushed hair, I spray it close to the scalp in segments from my left and all the way to the right. Next I dry my hair and voila. Volume is here. You can feel the residue under the fingers, it’s not like I have nothing in my hair, but it does not bother me at all. The volume remains until the next wash. It is crucial that we find precisely the right amount of dosage, because very soon it is too much product on our hair. Therefore the desired effect is not achieved. On the basis of this we instantly conclude that the product is bad, but this is not always the case. I believe hair volumizing products subject to the rule ‘less is more’. Anyhow, it’s reasonable to start with a smaller amount of product, and if you are not getting the wanted results, then continue increasing amount. If you won’t be satisfied even with a larger quantity of the product, then you can conclude that the product obviously is not for you. I just want to say that sometimes we can do injustice with our improper/wrong use to some very good products and those products mistakenly pass us.

3. MELVITA – ARGANOVO KREMNO OLJE / L’ARGAN BIO BODY OIL IN CREAM

Nikoli nisem dosledna pri uporabljanju losjona, masla ali kreme za telo. Če pa sem že pri volji, pa uporabim tole kremno olje in nobenega drugega. Krema je srednje gosta, lepo razmazljiva in se hitro vpije. Ne pušča mastnega filma na koži in čeprav vsebuje olje za seboj pusti prijetno nahranjeno in navlaženo kožo. Rada ga uporabljam tako poleti kot pozimi, ko imam izredno suho kožo. Je toplega, kanček sladkega vonja. Mogoče celo diši po arganu, ampak ne vem, kako v resnici diši argan, tako da težko primerjam. 😀 Vonj se obdrži na koži nekaj ur.IMG_6107I am never consistent, when it comes to applying lotion or body butters, oils. Honestly I’m too lazy to do it but if I do apply anything I use this creamy oil and nothing else. It’s creamy, not that thick though, it applies nicely and absorbs fast. It does not leave a greasy film on the skin, although it’s oil based, it leaves just a nourished and moist skin. I like to use it in the summer and especially the winter time when my skin is particularly dry. It has a warm, slightly sweet scent. It probably smells like argan, but I have no idea how argan smells so I can’t really compare it. The scent stays on the skin for a couple of hours.

4. THE BODY SHOP – TEA TREE PORE MINIMISER

Naj takoj omenim, da ne verjamem, da lahko katerakoli krema pomanjša moje pore. Moje pore so namreč gromozanske. Ker pa krema obljublja matiranje, hkrati pa bi naj služila kot baza/podlaga za tekoči puder, sem se odločila, da jo preizkusim. In ni mi žal. Po konsistenci se krema giblje med gelom in kremo, ima močan vonj po tea tree (tj. čajevcu), ampak se hitro razdiši. Najbolj všeč mi je občutek, ki ga pusti na koži. Krema se takoj vpije in pusti za sabo mehko, gladko, mat kožo, ki je pripravljena za nanos tekočega pudra. Ne bi mogla trditi, da podaljša obstoj tekočega pudra, je pa nanos pudra zaradi te kreme vsekakor prijetnejši. Jaz sem kupila že drugo tubo in je zaenkrat ne menjam.IMG_6129Let me start by saying this: I don’t believe that any cream can reduce my pores, because my pores are huge. Since the cream promises mattifying effect and at the same time it would function as a base/primer for foundation, I decided to give it a try. I don’t regret it. The cream consistency varies between a gel and cream with strong smell of tea tree, but it does not stay for long. I love the feeling it leaves on the skin. The cream absorbs quickly, leaving the skin soft, matte and prepared for foundation. I wouldn’t say that it helps prolong the existence of the foundation, but application is definitely nicer. I already bought my second tube and I don’t plan on changing it.

5. KNEIPP – KRISTALI ZA KOPANJE / BATHING CRYSTALS/SALT

Kneipp mi je vedno bil všeč, še posebej geli za tuširanje, olja za kopanje, kreme za roke, itd. V letu 2015 pa sem našla še en produkt, ki mi je ukradel srce in brez katerega si skorajda življenja več ne predstavljam. 🙂 To so Kneipp kristali za kopanje. Izbiramo lahko med ogromno vonji, kopeli so lepo obarvane, torej tudi voda. Te kopeli sicer niso hranilne ali vlažilne, pomembno pa je, da kože kljub temu ne izsušijo. Vendar pa je seveda uporaba losjona ali masla za telo skoraj obvezna, če imate suho kožo. Kopeli zelo lepo dišijo, vonj je dovolj močan, da zajame kopalnico, ampak ne premočan. Na koži se vonj ne obdrži dolgo, mogoče kakšnih 10 minut po kopeli. Kopeli najdete v Műllerju za 1,20€. Zame so dovolj poceni, da jih lahko uporabim večkrat na teden. Vedno rada poizkusim kakšno novo, ampak izmed vseh meni najljubša je kopel z vonjem vanilije, makadamije in medu. IMG_6138I always liked Kneipp, especially their shower gels, bathing oils, hand creams and so on. In the year 2015 I found another product that stole my heart. Without it I almost can’t imagine my life. 🙂 This mighty product is named Kneipp bathing crystals/salt. We can choose among numerous scents, the crystals are nicely colored and so is the water in the end. These baths are not moisturizing but also they do not dry out my skin. But if you have dry or very dry skin, the use of body lotion or butter is almost obligatory. The baths smell really nice and the smell is strong enough to fill the bathroom. Smells don’t stay on the skin long, maybe 10 minutes after the bath. Baths are low-priced, around 1,20€ in Muller, so I can use them several times a week. I always like to try a new one but my all-time favorite is the bath with the vanilla, macadamia and honey scent.

6. L’OCCITANE – IZBOLJŠEVALNA MEGLICA ZA OBRAZ POPOLNA POTONIKA / PEONY PERFECTING MIST

Tale sprej sem si kupila z namenom, da ga bom uporabljala za osvežitev make-upa in pa za samostojno negovalno osvežitev kože. Izredno mi je všeč. Uporabljam ga pogosto, porabi se ga izredno malo, saj je ”šprica” res dobra in izredno enakomerno razprši proizvod. Meglico največkrat uporabim po koncu ličenja, da »utrdim« ličila oziroma včasih tudi zato, da zakrijem pudrast videz. Ponavadi ga tudi uporabim, ko po parih urah spet napudram T območje, ki se mi masti in tako koža spet dobi svež izgled. Vonj je cvetličen, a nežen, jaz ga po par minutah več ne zaznam.IMG_6108I bought this spray mostly with the intention that it will be used to refresh my make-up or to refresh my skin. I really love it. I use it often, the usage is minimal because the spray diffuses the product nicely and evenly. I usually use the mist when I finish my make-up to set it and to hide the powdery look. I also use it when I touch up my T zone with a powder after a few hours to refresh the skin. The scent is flowery but subtle, I don’t smell it after a few minutes.

7. THE BODY SHOP – DROPS OF YOUTH BOUNCY SLEEPING MASK

Huh…kje naj začnem? 🙂 Masko sem kupila poleti, ko je ravnokar prišla na police. Radovedno sem brala ocene in gledala videe o njej. Potrebovala sem namreč produkt, ki mi bi konkretno navlažil in nahranil kožo. In baje bi naj ravno to bila naloge te maske. Obljublja bolj navlaženo in prožno kožo. In res je. Maska je bele barve, zelo gosta, kot žele, tako da se prst dejansko »odbije« od nje. Je zelo nežnega vonja, ga skoraj ne zaznam. Z majhno priloženo lopatico zajamem produkt, ga segrejem in razmažem med dlanmi, nakar se maska spremeni v olje. Nanesem na obraz, počakam 15 minut, preden grem spat in to je to. Maska se sicer kanček čuti na obrazu, ne vpije se popolnoma, ampak se ne prenaša na posteljnino, kar je zame ključnega pomena. Zjutraj obraz umijem z vodo in koža je prav sijoča, navlažena, zdrava. Jaz jo uporabljam enkrat tedensko, čeprav mislim, da bi jo lahko tudi bolj pogosto, a rada menjam maske za obraz.IMG_6125Where do I begin? 🙂 I bought this mask in the summer when it just hit the shelves. I curiously read reviews and watched videos about it. I needed something to moisturize and nourish the skin. And apparently this is exactly the mission of the mask. It is supposed to make the skin more flexible and moisturized. And it does. The mask is white, it’s somehow jelly-like, so your finger actually bounces off. It’s slightly scented, so I can barely smell it. With a small spatula that comes with the mask I take a little bit and put it in my hands, warm it up and spread it in my palms so the mask changes into an oil. I apply that to my face, wait 15 minutes before I go to sleep and that’s it. You can feel the mask on the skin, it doesn’t absorb all of it, but it is not transmitted to the bedding, which is very important for me. In the morning I wash my face with water and the skin is shiny, moisturized and healthy. I use it once a week although I think you could use it more often.

8. NUXE – BAUME LEVRES

Tale balzam za ustnice uporabljam že par let in sem skoraj prepričana, da bo vedno moj najljubši. Balzam je v lončku, je zelo gost, rumene barve, z vonjem po citrusih in medu. Kaj veliko o tem balzamu za ustnice ne bom pisala, saj sem porabila vsaj 6 lončkov in je pri meni stalnica. Ker je v lončku, ga najraje hranim ob postelji, v zimskih časih pa kar na kavni mizici v dnevni, saj ga zaradi pacanja s prsti ne nosim s seboj, če nimam huje poškodovanih in razpokanih ustnic. Edino tale balzam uspešno rešuje moje ustnice pozimi, ki so izredno občutljive na mraz. Jaz ga bom vedno in vsem priporočala, ker je zame najboljši in najbolj učinkovit balzam za ustnice sploh.IMG_6088I’ve been using this lip balm for years and I can certainly say it will always be my favorite. The balm comes in a pot, it’s really thick, yellow and with a citrusy honey scent. I won’t talk about this lip balm a lot, because I used at least 6 jars and it’s a constant for me. Because it’s in a pot I like to keep it by my bed, in the winter time on my coffee table in the living room, because I don’t take it with me, unless my lips are seriously cracked and dry. This is the only lip balm that successfully saves my lips which are extremely sensitive to cold in the winter. I will always recommend it to everyone, because for me it is the best and the most effective lip balm ever.

9. MELVITA – ARGANOVA KREMA ZA ŽAMETNE ROKE / L’ARGAN BIO VELVET HAND CREAM

Tale krema za roke je iz iste linije kot kremno olje, zato me sploh ne preseneča, da mi je všeč. Najraje imam kreme, ki se hitro vpijejo in ne puščajo mastnega filma, zato je ta krema vedno med prvimi pri meni. Vonj je enak kot pri kremnem olju, torej topel oziroma verjetno po arganu. 🙂 Krema je bele barve, srednje gostote, se hitro vpije in dobro vlaži. Je v majhni 75ml tubi, tako da je priročna za v torbico, bi pa bila vesela tudi kake večje (100-150ml) tube za doma.IMG_6115This hand cream is from the same line as the creamy oil so I am not at all surprised I like it. I like creams that absorb quickly and are not greasy, so that is why I always reach for this one. The scent is the same as the creamy oil, warm and it probably smells like argan. 🙂 The cream is white, medium thick, it absorbs quickly into the skin and moisturizes really good. It comes in a small 75ml tube so it’s convenient to carry it with me in a bag. It would be great if the cream would also be available in larger package (100-150ml).

10. BATISTE – SUHI ŠAMPON / DRY SHAMPOO

Odkar sem izvedela za obstoj suhega šampona, je to izdelek, ki ga imam vedno pri roki. O njem sem poslušala zelo dolgo od blogerk iz tujine, ampak se nikoli nisem odločila za nakup, dokler nisem enkrat slučajno naletela nanj v Douglasu v Avstriji. Seveda sem ga takoj kupila in sedaj vem, zakaj so vse tako navdušene. Ker imam temne lase sem kupila šampon za temno rjave lase. Ta diši po čokoladi (?) in je obarvan, tako da se na laseh ne opazi, če ga nanesem obilneje. Šampon dobro deluje, učinkovito vpije maščobo in doda še malo volumna. Dobra lastnost Batiste linije suhih šamponov je tudi ta, da lahko izbiramo med različnimi vonji in tudi barvami (za svetlo rjave lase, za temno rjave lase in tudi za svetle oziroma blond lase). Cena je okrog 5-6€.IMG_6099Ever since I heard about the existence of dry shampoo, I always have one at hand. I caught a lot of great infos about Batiste from beauty bloggers abroad, but I never decided to buy one until I »bumped« into it in Douglas store in Austria. Of course I immediately bought it and now I know why the enthusiasm. Because I have dark hair I bought the one for deep brown hair. It smells like chocolate (?) and it’s colored, so even if I apply too much it’s not visible on the hair. The dry shampoo works really well, efficiently absorbs the grease and gives the hair a bit of volume. The great thing about Batiste dry shampoo line is also that you can choose from a variety of scents and colors (for light brown hair, dark brown hair and even light or blonde hair). The price is around 5-6€.
