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. 😉

EOS Lip balm

img_8665

To je spet eden takšnih izdelkov, ki sem si ga želela zelo dolgo vendar pa si ga nisem nikoli kupila, dokler ga nisem zagledala v drogeriji v Sloveniji. Seveda sem takoj zagrabila priložnost, da ga preizkusim. Če pa me spremljate že dalj časa pa tudi veste, da sem obsedena z balzami za utnice. 🙂

This is again one of those products I wanted for a long time but never bought it until I saw it in a drugstore in Slovenia. Of course I took that chance to try it out. If you follow me for a longer time then you also know that I’m obsessed with lip balms. 🙂

Embalaža je drugačna, kot smo jih vajeni pri balzamih. Balzam ni v stiku, ampak je v plastičnem jajčku. Odpira se enostavno in tudi tesni dobro. Embalaža je mat in tudi na otip je prijetna ter ne drsi v rokah. Sam balzam je v obliki polovice jajčka. Nanos je enostaven, kljub drugačni obliki. Jajčka je seveda bolj nepraktična kot tipičen stik, saj zavzame malo več prostora a če uporabljete torbico vas to ne bo motilo. Sama balzama ne nosim s seboj, ampak ga uporabljam v glavnem doma.

The packaging is different then what we’re used to with lip balms. The balm is not in a stick but in a plastic egg. It opens easily and closes good. The packaging is matte and nice to the touch as it isn’t slippery in the hands. The balm itself is shaped like half of an egg. The application is easy despite the different shape. The egg is of course more impractical then a typical stick because it takes up more space but if you use a handbag the this will not bother you. I myself don’t carry the balm with me because I use it at home.

Sweet Mint

EOS (Evolution of Smooth) trdi, da so njihovi balzami za ustnice 95% organski, 100% naravni, brez vazelina in parabenov. Vsebujejo vitamin E, karitejevo maslo in jojobino olje, ki poskrbijo za mehke, navlažene in gladke ustnice. Sestavine so res odlične.

EOS (Evolution of Smooth) claims that their lip balms are 95% organic, 100% natural, paraben and petrolatum free. They contain vitamin E, shea butter and jojoba oil that keep your lips soft, moisturized and smooth. The ingredients are really excellent.

Ker je pri nas na voljo kar nekaj različic, sem se odločila poskusiti sladko meto (Sweet Mint) s katero se mi je zdelo, da ne morem zgrešiti. In res je bilo tako. Balzam je v mint embalaži in tudi nasplošno je barva embalaže, jajčka, odvisna od vonja/okusa balzama. Balzam zaradi mete na začetku ustnice rahlo hladi, čez čas pa se le-ta razdiši in ostanejo le negovane ustnice. Ker sem iskreno navdušena nad balzamom sem v Avstriji (izbira tam je namreč večja) kupila še balzam z okusom melone (Honeysuckle Honeydew), ki diši res lepo po meloni. Balzam je lepo mazljiv in tudi prijeten na ustnicah. Na ustnicah se obdrži kar nekaj časa, seveda je vse odvisno od tega koliko pijete in jeste.

Because there are a few different versions in our stores I decided to try Sweet Mint because I felt I can’t go wrong with that one. And so it was. The balm is in a mint packaging and generally the color of the packaging, egg, depends on the scent/flavor of the balm.  The balm cools the lips slightly in the beginning because of the mint but after a while it’s feeling decreases and you’re left with nourished lips. Because I’m honestly impressed with the balm I bought another one in Austria (the choice there is bigger) with the melon flavor (Honeysuckle Honeydew) that smells really nice and like melon. The balm is nicely spreadable and also really pleasant on the lips. It stays quite some time on the lips but that depends on how much you eat and drink.

Honeysuckle Honeydew

Odkar sem kupila tale balzam drugega niti pogledala nisem in če bo tudi pozimi tako uspešno negoval moje ustnice se zna zgoditi, da bo prehitel mojega trenutno najljubšega od Nuxe-a. :O Za balzam boste plačali okoli 6€ za 7g, kupite pa ga lahko v kateremkoli Mullerju ali D&M-u. V Avstriji v Douglasu boste našli malo večjo izbiro okusov, prav tako imajo kreme za roke in telo. Jaz balzam priporočam!

Since I bought this lip balm I haven’t even looked at another one and if it’s going to successfully nourish my lips in the winter time as well then it’s possible that it will substitute my current favorite from Nuxe. You will pay around 6€ for 7g and you can buy it in any Muller or D&M. You will find a bit bigger choice of flavors in Austria in Douglas and they also have hand and body lotions as well. I recommend the lip balm!
