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!

L.O.V cosmetics: Caring Volume Gloss – Mystic Sand

IMG_8604

Odkar imam dovolj dolge lase, da jih lahko spnem v čop, se spet navdušujem nad lip glossi. Čeprav me ob prvem obisku L.O.V stojala v Mullerju ni navdušilo nič, pa sem si drugič vzela malo več časa in tako tudi našla tale skriti dragulj. L.O.V bi naj bila bolj elegantna sestra Essence in Catrice kozmetike, če ne drugače pa definitivno po izgledu oziroma embalaži.

Since my hair is long enough so I can tie it in a ponytail I’m becoming more and more enthusiastic about lip glosses again. Although the first time I visited the L.O.V stand in Muller nothing really impressed me, I took a bit more time on the second visit and that’s how I found this hidden jewel. L.O.V is supposed to be the more elegant sister of Essence and Catrice cosmetics if not otherwise then definitely in appearance or packaging.

Embalaža je oglata a zaobljena prozorna tuba s tipičnim aplikatorjem  z gobico. Gobica zajame dovolj produkta za cele ustnice in ga tudi lepo razmaže. L.O.V trdi, da daje glos eleganten sijoč finiš in nežno nego v enem s pomočjo Tsubaki olja in vitamina E. Mystic Sand odtenek je rjavkasto  kožne (nude) barve z dodatki rožnate. Ker se zadnje čase navdušujem nad takimi odtenki, je tale bil kot naročen. Je precej pigmentiran, tako da moje ustnice popolnoma prekrije. Je nežnega vonja, ki ga na ustnicah ne zaznam.

The packaging is an angular rounded transparent tube with a typical doe-foot applicator. The sponge captures enough product for the whole lips and also smears is easily. L.O.V states that the gloss gives an elegant shiny finish and gentle care in one with the help of Tsubaki oil and vitamin E. Mystic Sand shade is a brown nude color with hints of rose. Because lately I’ve been really into these kind of shades this one was on cue. It’s pretty pigmented so it covers my lips completely. It has a subtle smell that I can’t smell once on the lips.

Glos je  kremast, izredno udoben in lahek na ustnicah, kar je najbolj pomembno pa je to, da ni lepljiv. Daje izredno lep lesk ustnicam, ki izgledajo skoraj mokre. Ker ni lepljiv seveda tudi ni dolgo obstojen. Na meni je zdržal dobro uro, uro pa pol, v primeru da nisem jedla. Zelo rada ga kombiniram z Essence Longlasting barvico za ustnice v odtenku 05 Lovely Frappuccino. Ustnic mi ne izsuši, ampak jih celo navlaži malenkost.

The gloss is creamy, really comfortable and light on the lips and most importantly it’s not sticky. It gives the lips an extremely beautiful shine that looks almost wet. Because it’s not sticky it of course isn’t long-lasting. It lasted about an good hours, hour and a half on me in case I didn’t eat. I love to combine it with the Essence Longlasting lip liner in the shade 05 Lovely Frappuccino. It doesn’t dry out my lips but it even slightly moisturizes them.

Jaz sem nad glosom in nad odtenkom navdušena, že planiram nakup še kakšnega. L.O.V lahko kupite v večini Mullerjev po Sloveniji, zanj pa boste odšteli 5,99€ kar se mi zdi zelo ugodno za tako kvaliteten glos. Ali so kakšni drugi izdelki od njih, ki mi jih priporočate?

I am extremely impressed by the gloss and the shade and I’m already planning to buy some more. You can buy L.O.V in most Mullers in Slovenia and you’ll pay 5,99€ for it which is a great price for a gloss this great in quality. Are there any other products from them that you recommend?

Nuxe: Huile Prodigieuse

IMG_7956

Olja mi niso najbolj pri srcu, čeprav imam precej suho kožo na telesu, saj ne maram mastnega občutka na koži. Kljub temu, sem bila tega olja vesela. Imela sem že olje od Nuxea z bleščicami in ni mi bilo všeč, saj je bilo za moj občutek veliko preveč bleščic in pri uporabi so se zalepile na dlan in le s težavo sem jih umila. Prav tako pa je to olje kultno in vesela sem, da ga imam v svoji kolekciji.

Although I have quite dry skin I don’t like oils too much, because I don’t like the greasy feeling on my skin. Nevertheless I was happy to get this oil. I’ve had a Nuxe oil with shimmer before and I didn’t like it, because it was too shimmery for my taste and the shimmer stuck to my palm while using it and I had difficulty washing it off. Also this is a cult oil and I’m happy to have it in my collection.

Moje olje ima embalažo iz omejene kolekcije in čeprav je embalaža izredno seksi in čudovita pa me moti, ker ne vidim koliko produkta je še ostalo. Drugače pa izredno šik črna steklenička z zlatim pokrovom in zlato špricalko ter z zlatim napisom. Špricalka dobro deluje. Všečno. 🙂

My oil is in a limited edition package and although the packaging is extremely sexy and gorgeous it bothers me that I can’t see how much product is left inside. Otherwise it’s an extremely chic black bottle with a gold cap and spray and gold lettering. The spray works well. Cute. 🙂

IMG_7953

Nuxe trdi, da je Huile Prodigieuse suho olje z edinstveno koncentracijo dragocenih rastlinskih olj in vitamina E, ki hrani, obnavlja in mehča kožo obraza, telesa in lase. Edinstvena mešanica 6 dragocenih rastlinskih olj (lešnik, makadamija, boreč, šentjanževka, kamelija, sladki mandelj) in nežne dišave koži podajo žametni občutek, lasje postanejo svileni, vidnost strij se zmanjša.

Nuxe states that Huile Prodigieuse is a dry oil with a unique concentration of valuable plant oils and vitamin E which nourishes, repairs and softens the skin of the face, body and hair. The unique blend of 6 precious plant oils (Hazelnut, Macadamia, Borage, St. John’s Wort, Camellia, Sweet Almond) and delicate fragrance leave the skin feeling velvety, hair becomes silky, the visibility of stretch marks is reduced.

To da je olje lahko suho je zame največja uganka, saj se mi zdi totalno nasprotje, vendar pa sem že doživela da je bilo olje “suho”. Tako je tudi s tem oljem. Ob zmernem nanosu se olje hitro vpije in ne obsedi na koži. A pozor, pri večjih količinah se ne vpije, ampak ostane na koži. Pri meni se je zgodilo podobno, verjetno zato, ker sem ga uporabljala v pasji vročini (35°C in več) in se je olje izločalo skupaj s potom. Olje sem uporabljala le v primeru, ko sem imela oblečene kratke hlače, obleko, majčko brez rokavov in ga nanesla na noge in roke. Olje se lepo razmaže, kožo nahrani in da čudovit sijaj.

For me the greatest enigma is how can an oil be dry, because I find that to be totally opposite, but I have experienced an oil being “dry”. So it was with this one as well. When used moderately the oil absorbs quickly and doesn’t sit on the skin. But beware, when using too much the oil doesn’t absorb, but it stays on the skin. I had a similar experience, probably because I used it in intense heat (35°C and more) and the oil secreted with the sweat. I used the oil only when I wore shorts, dress, sleeveless shirt and applied it to my legs and arms. The oils spreads nicely, it nourishes the skin and gives a wonderful glow.

Če preidem k vonju. Meni diši čudovito, po poletju. Je rahlo sladek, na trenutke me spominja na olje/kremo za sončenje, ampak bolj prefinjeno. Zaznam oreščke. Občasno si malo olja pošpricam na roko samo zaradi vonja. Ker je vonj precej močan in ostane na koži kar dolgo vam priporočam, da olje povohate preden ga kupite. Zaenkrat olje uporabljam le na koži telesa. Za obraz se mi ne zdi primerno, za lase pa bom ga še poskusila, vendar predvidevam, da je potrebno biti pazljiv pri količini nanosa.

If I turn to the scent. It smells beautiful to me, like summer. Slightly sweet, at times it reminds me of sunscreen, but more sophisticated. I recognize nuts. Occasionally I spritz a bit of oil on my arm just because of the smell. Because the scent is quite strong and stays on the skin for quite some time, I do recommend you smell the oil before you buy it. For now I use the oil on my body only. I don’t think it’s appropriate for the face and I do plan to try it on my hair, but I assume that it’s good to be careful with the amount.

IMG_7986

Olje bom uporabljala čez celo poletje, pozimi pa imam raje kreme in losijone za telo. Si znam predstavljati, da ko bom olje porabila, bom kupila novega, saj kaj takega enostavno morate imeti v kolekciji. Kupite ga lahko v večini lekarn kot tudi v spletnih trgovinah (lekarnar.com) in zanj boste odštele okoli 31€ za 100ml ali okoli 18€ za 50ml, odvisno od tega kje ga boste kupili.

I will use the oil throughout the summer, in the winter I prefer creams and lotions for the body. I can imagine, that when I use the oil up I will buy a new one, because you just have to have something like this in your collection. You can buy it in most pharmacies as in online stores (lekarnar.com) and you will pay around 31€ for 100ml and aroung 18€ for 50ml, depending on where you buy it.
