Gwdihw Balms

January 09, 2014


Če se morda spomnite moje objave o idejah za božična darila, potem se morda spomnite tistih luštnih kremic s sovicami. In danes bom pisala prav o njih, o Gwdihw balmih. Gwidhw je valižanska znamka, ki ponuja linijo naravnih zeliščnih balmov oziroma balzamov. Zelišča, ki jih uporabljajo so lokalno rastoča oziroma pridelana in vse njihove uporabljene sestavine so popolnoma naravne. Gwdihw ali "goody hoo" kot se izgovori, v valižanskem jeziku pomeni sovo. Narisane sovice krasijo vse njihove kreme oziroma balme in moram reči, da dizajn ne bi mogel biti bolj kjut!<3

Balzam za ustnice z vonjem pomaranče in limone je med tremi moj najljubši. Ima prekrasen vonj po citrusih, diši bolj sladko po pomaranči kot kislo po limoni. Je dokaj mehke teksture, ki je odvisna predvsem od sobne temperature a ob stiku s prsti in ustnicami se takoj stopi in prijetno razmaže. Struktura je zelo prijetna za uporabo. Balzam je zelo hranljiv, ustnice prekrasno navlaži kar se še posebej opazi, ko ga uporabim zvečer. Deluje celo noč, z ustnic ne izgine ampak se ga čuti še zjutraj kar se meni sploh ne dogaja! Odlično deluje proti razpokanim ustnicam in po uporabi so vedno nahranjene in občutno mehkejše. Izdelek zelo priporočam in če vam morda vonj citrusev ni najbolj pri srcu, ponujajo še tri vonje.

Kremica za obnohtno kožo je izdelek, ki sem ga med vsemi najbolj želela preizkusiti. Kot balzam za ustnice ima krasne sestavine, kokosovo in olivno olje, čebelji vosek, kakavovo maslo, ognjič in eterično olje limone. Diši zelo sveže in prijetno. Tekstura izdelka je mehkejša, med tremi se najhitreje stopi in včasih je to kar moteče. Želela bi, da bi vseboval več čebeljega voska ali kakavovega masla, ki bi pripomogla, da se ne bi tako hitro topil. Na hladnem se seveda strdi in takrat je meni najljubše teksture in čudovit za uporabo. Če spregledamo to, je izdelek krasen! Obnohtno kožico čudovito navlaži ter zmehča in glede na sestavine se kar hitro vpije v kožo. Hitreje kot sem pričakovala. No, če pretiravam, potem to ni tako. :) Lahko ga uporabljam preko dneva, nekaterim bi bil verjetno všeč le za ponoči, ker še vseeno gre za izdelek, ki vsebuje olja in je tako tudi bolj masten. Če imate probleme s suho kožico ali pa ste v iskanju novega izdelka za nego nohtov, preizkusite!

Gwdihw Skin Balm Night Owl Sleep Balm
Kot že samo ime pove gre za balzam, ki poskrbi za boljši spanec. Vsebuje še manj sestavin kot prejšnji, kokosovo in olivno olje, čebelji vosek, eterično olje mandarine in ylang ylang. Vonj je sladek, na nekaj me spominja a se ne morem spomniti na kaj. Ni ravno moj najljubši vonj a vseeno se mi zdi, da pomirja. S spanjem na srečo nimam težav (že trkam na les) tako da ne vem ali res deluje a včasih ga čez dan malo nanesem na dlani in vrat in imam res občutek, da me malo pomiri. Med vsemi tremi ima tudi meni najljubšo strukturo, v posodici se najmanj topi.

Naj za konec omenim še embalažo, ki po mojem mnenju ni ravno najboljša, sploh za potovanja. Pokrovček je narejen tako da, ko ga rahlo stisneš se odpre in mislim, da bi se v torbici prehitro odprl. Embalaža ni najbolj zanesljiva, problem pa je tudi v tem, da se izdelki topijo. Za tople dni definitivno ni za nosit okoli. Primernejši so za uporabo doma, kar mene sicer ne moti, ker so tako tudi bolj higienični in ne, nočem jih nanašati z umazanimi prsti sredi mesta! :)

Če so vam všeč, jih lahko kupite na Gwdihw spletni strani. In kar je še boljše je, da vsi moji bralci lahko ob nakupu katerihkoli balmov po vaši izbiri uporabite kodo za 10% popust -  loveliness10. :D

Kako se vam zdijo? :)

Let's talk about balms. I love them, they're really nice so I was more than happy when I received three from Gwdihw. Company is based in Wales and they offer a range of natural, herbal body balms and soothers. The herbs used to infuse the balms are locally grown and all ingredients used are totally natural. Gwidhw, pronounced "Goody Hoo" is the Welsh word for owl. Just look at those precious owls, they look so cute, I love their design! But enough about that and let't just get right into. 
My favourite out of three has to be Smoochy Lips Orange & Lemon Lip Balm. It's so moisturizing like no other lip balm I've tried. I love using it in the evenings, it really nourishes my lips, they feel so soft and the best thing about it - balm stays on my lips all night! The smell is also great and I really recommend trying it. If you're not the biggest fan of citrusy smell just pick some other scent, maybe vanilla is the one for you. :)
The second balm I wanna talk about it is the Nail Wizard Hand Balm. I was most excited to try it and I really like it as well. It has a few ingredients which is always nice and I'm always down for a nice lemon smelling product. :) Although balm contains oils and butters it's not as oily as you'd think. It sinks into my skin quite fast and leaves it moisturized and soft. My cuticles look great. If I had to pick one thing I don't really love it would be that it can melt quite a bit. I'd love it more if it would contain more Beeswax or Cocoa Butter. I still like it, it's just not the best one for taking with you on your hot summer holidays. :)
Night Owl Sleep Balm is meant for a good night sleep, it calms your body and mind. Fortunately I don't have sleep problems (knock on wood) but I think the essential oils of mandarin and ylang ylang really help to calm me down. The smell reminds me of something but I can't remember what, it's not really my favourite but it still calms me. It's nice and the texture is also lovely.

I love the ingredients, their simplicity and effectiveness, they just work. If I had to pick one negative thing it would be that they're not really travel friendly. The packaging is not so sturdy and I think it would easily open in a bag, at least my bag. But because they're in pots I don't mind that very much, they are perfect for home where you can always wash your hands before using them. :)

If you are interested in trying them you can get them on Gwdihw online store. And for all you lovely readers - use a discount code loveliness10 which offers you 10% off any order!

Uf that was a long post! :) So, what do you think about them? Have you tried anything from Gwdihw?


Love, Jana

  1. A while bag I had one of the lip balms in Cherry, lovely product but I never did repurchase, I think I prefer balms in tubes

  14. Kako so lušni! :)) Ko mi zmanjka katerega od Badgerjevih bom mogla enega izmed teh preizkusit, najbolj me mika sleep balm z ylang ylangom :)) Je pa res škoda, da se ne dajo ti balzami dobiti tudi v takšnih embalažah, da jih ni potrebno nanašati s prsti in so bolj primerni tudi za v torbico.
