Pure Life Soap Rosemary Shampoo

May 29, 2014


Vsake toliko časa se zgodi, da se znajdem med vsemi izdelki, ki jih ponuja iHerb in kar brskam dokler ne najdem kaj zanimivega. Današnja objava bo namenjena prav izdelku, ki sem ga odkrila čisto po naključju, Pure Life Soap Co. Šampon z rožmarinom.
Pure Life Soap Rosemary Shampoo, Natural No Gluten, Sulfates, Cruelty Free Rosemary Shampoo Pure Life Soap Co.
Šampon ni testiran na živalih, je vegan, brez sulfatov, glutena, alkohola, umetnih barvil in dišav, brez parabenov, ftalatov in še bi lahko naštevala. Vsebuje pa nekaj sestavin ekološkega izvora in hladno stiskanih izvlečkov, kot so rožmarin, sezamovo olje, beljakovino keratin. Šampon je namenjen intenzivni obnovi in sijaju las.
Pure Life Soap Rosemary Shampoo ingredients
Pure Life Soap Rosemary Shampoo philosophy
Šampon ima kar prijeten zeliščen vonj, diši po rožmarinu, je svetlo zeleno rumene barve in dokaj tekoč. Ne vsebuje nobenih sulfatov a ne glede na to se odlično peni. Šampon je zelo prijeten za uporabo, je pa zanimivo, da se sprva dobro peni, pri daljšem masiranju lasišča pa pena kar izgine. Zaradi tega se šampona porabi malo več in zato mi je še posebej všeč pumpica na pritisk. Več šamponov bi moralo imeti takšno doziranje, zelo priročno! Najbolj všeč pa mi je zato, ker brez problemov spere kokosovo olje. To se pri naravnih šamponih na žalost ne zgodi vedno in verjetno mi ni treba pisati kako nadležno je to! :) Lase torej krasno očisti, rožmarin in kratka masaža lasišča pa obenem tudi izboljšata prekrvavitev in s tem vplivata na hitrejšo rast las. Opazila sem tudi, da se mi lasje kasneje zmastijo. Šampon bi bil lahko bolj hranilen, kar pa me sicer niti ne moti, ker ga ne uporabljam ob vsakem pranju. Je pa zato Acure šampon toliko bolj hranilen in oba skupaj delujeta super.

Rosemary Shampoo, Šampon z rožmarinom
Kupila sem ga na iHerbu, 450ml stane skoraj 7€. Morda bom preizkusila še kakšen njihov balzam za lase, upam pa, da bo iHerb razširil prodajo njihove kozmetike, ker na spletni strani Pure Life Soap imajo še nekaj zanimivih izdelkov, še posebej Papajin lasni dvojček.


Translation
Every now and then I find myself browsing on iHerb and just searching for some interesting products. Last time I did that I came across this lovely looking Rosemary Shampoo from an American brand Pure Life Soap Co.
Shampoo is cruelty free, vegan, it's sulfate, gluten and alcohol free, it doesn't contain any artificial dyes od fragrances, pthalates and the list goes on. It has some ingredients from an organic source and pure and nutritive cold pressed extracts such as rosemary, sesame oil and keratin protein. Ingredient list is simple. Shampoo has a herbal scent which is quite nice, smells like rosemary. It has a light yellow green color and the consistency is quite runny. As I said, it doesn't contain any sulfates but it lathers really nice, I like it. But that in mind I do find it interesting that the foam vanishes after a longer massage of the scalp. As a result of that you use more and that is when the pump really becomes useful. It's so practical and I wish more shampoos would have pump dispensers.
For me the one main thing I judge a shampoo is its power to wash off coconut oil, or some other oil treatment. And this one washes it off! Unfortunately this doesn't happen with all of the natural shampoos and I think I don't have to write how annoying I is that! Having dirty and oily hair after washing is just not an option. :) Oh and besides the lovely cleansing power, rosemary and a short scalp massage improve blood circulation and with that the hair grow faster, yaay! I also noticed my hair doesn't get so greassy - always a bonus. I really like this shampoo and I would love it even more if it was more nourishing. But I don't use it for every wash so I don't mind that too much. As long as I have a nourishing shampoo as well I'm good - and I'm talking to you, Acure shampoo. :)
I'm impressed and would like to try some more Pure Life Soap products, hope the iHerb will stock up on all of their products. I think Papaya hair line would be perfect for my hair. But for now it's all about Rosemary shampoo and you can get yours here.


Love,

Put Some Pineapple On Your Face

May 27, 2014


Pripravljene na novo masko za obraz? Tokrat tako slastno, da se kar težko uprem, da je ne poližem z obraza. :) Za poživljajočo masko primerno za vse tipe kože potrebujete tri sestavine: svež ananas, ovsene kosmiče in med.
Maska za obraz z ananasom, medom in ovsenimi kosmiči
Kot vsi vemo, ananas vsebuje ogromno vitaminov in mineralov, kot so vitamin E, C, B12, magnezij, železo, jod in tako naprej. Ananas deluje antioksidantno in tako pomaga v boju proti prostim radikalom, ki povzročajo staranje telesa in kože. Za nego kože pa je sadež še posebej pomemben zaradi kisline in encimov, med njimi je eden pomembnejših bromelain. Največ ga je v sredini ananasa, v tistem trdem steblu, ki ga pogosto zavržemo. Encim razgrajuje beljakovine in s tem odlično odstranjuje odmrle celice na koži. Obenem pa tudi odstranjuje madeže in pege nastale zaradi sončenja ali staranja. Maska tako čudovito odstrani odmrle celice, kožo pusti svežo in sijočo, z redno uporabo zmanjšuje hiperpigmentne madeže in neenakomerno obarvano polt, ki je pogosto posledica sončenja ali aken. Zaradi medu maska deluje tudi vlažilno, ovseni kosmiči pa kožo pomirjajo in so nasploh super za občutljivo kožo. Sicer pa so v maski bolj ali manj zato, ker je sicer maska preveč vodena in se zelo težko nanaša.

Postopek:
Ananas zmiksajte v blenderju, ovsene kosmiče pa v kavnem mlinčku. Zmešajte skupaj, dodajte med in maska je gotova. Previdno nanesite na obraz, pustite učinkovati 10 do 15 minut, nato sperite z mlačno vodo in nanesite kremo. Po nanosu se lahko pojavi ščemeč občutek na koži, ki pa hitro izgine. Ker pa se vedno najde nekdo, ki je alergičen na določeno sestavino, se pri nekaterih lahko pojavi pekoč občutek ter rdečina. Če se to zgodi, masko sperite in nanesite mešanico ovsenih kosmičev in medu, bo koža hitro pomirjena.
DIY Pineapple Honey Oats Face Mask
Masko lahko uporabljate enkrat na teden in obenem ne potrebujete nobenih drugih pilingov, ker ananas odlično opravi svojo nalogo in odstrani vse odmrle kožne celice.


Translation
Ready for a new DIY face mask? :) For an invigorating mask you'll need three ingredients, fresh pineapple, honey and oats. As we all know, pineapple contains lots of vitamins and minerals such as vitamin E, C, B12, magnesium, iron, iodine and so on. It's high in antioxidants which minimize damage to your cells from free radicals. Pineapple is especially great as a skin treatment because of its enzymes and bromelain is one of them. Most of this enzyme is in the middle of the pineapple, in the stem, which we often toss out. The enzyme breaks down proteins and thus removes the dead cells on the skin. It also removes blemishes and freckles caused by the sun or aging. With regular use mask reduces hyperpigmentation and discoloration that is often caused by sun or acne. It the mask are also honey which has some amazing moisturizing properties and oats which soothe the skin and are generally great for sensitive skin. And they also make a great consistency because without them the mask is too watery and quite difficult to apply. So if you wanna try this mask you should first blend the pineapple and grind the oats. Mix them together, add honey and the mask is ready. Apply to your face, leave on for 10 to 15 minutes then rinse with lukewarm water and apply a cream or oil. Afterwards there can occur a tingly sensation on your skin but it quickly goes away. However, there is always someone who is allergic to a particular ingredient so if your face becomes red and it starts to burn, rinse the mask and apply a mixture of oats and honey. That will calm and soothe your skin and you'll be happy again. :)
You can use this mask once a week and you don't need any other scrubs in between because pineapple works perfectly at removing dead skin cells.

After Workout Vegan Breakfast

May 23, 2014


Saj poznate Cassey in Blogilates, kajne? No, v začetku maja sem se končno lotila programa po njenem majskem koledarju, #ahMAYzing. Zaenkrat mi gre odlično in mislim, da bom z novim koledarjem nadaljevala še naprej v juniju. Če le lahko, najraje telovadim zjutraj in po telovadbi se vedno prileže zdrav, hranljiv in okusen zajtrk. Pogosto so to smutiji, za bolj nasiten zajtrk pa se običajno zatečem k ovsenim kosmičem, ki jih obožujem tako v mojem želodčku kot na obrazu (maska z ovsenimi kosmiči).
Ingredients for After Workout Breakfast, Porridge
 Za odličen zajtrk torej potrebujete:
- ovsene kosmiče (tiste cele in ne mlete, najraje imam DM-ove),
- rastlinsko mleko (običajno poleg mleka dodam še malo vode),
- pest rozin,
- žlico chia semen,
- banano,
- jagode in borovnice.

Recept seveda lahko prilagodite, namesto banane lahko uporabite jabolko, namesto rozin brusnice ali pa kar oboje, brez chia semen in tako naprej. Po mojem receptu pa najprej obvezno čez noč namočite ovsene kosmiče. Fitinska kislina v ovoju lahko blokira absorpcijo pomembnih mineralov, kot je na primer železo. Seveda želimo, da se minerali najbolje absorbirajo in z namakanjem nevtraliziramo del kisline. Skrajšamo pa tudi čas kuhanja. Kosmiče zjutraj splaknite z vodo in dajte v ponev ali posodo. Prilijte mleko in vodo, kar malo po občutku. Raje manj kot več, med kuhanjem še vedno lahko dodate. Kuhajte približno 10 minut in nato primešajte narezano banano, rozine in chia semena. Pustite še par minut in kosmiči so končani. :) Stresite v skodelico ter potresite z borovnicami in jagodami. Njam!<3 
Oats Raisins Chia Seeds Banana

Oatmeal Porridge with Banana Raisins Chia Seeds Blueberries Strawberries
* In dodajte še cimet, meni ga je zmanjkalo zato ga ni v receptu. :)


Translation
You all know about Cassey and Blogilates right? I've always loved her videos but in the beginning of May I've finally started her monthly calendar, #ahMAYzing. So far I'm doing great and I think I will continue with her new June calendar when it comes out. If I can, I work out in the mornings and the main thing that keeps me going is the thought of a nice healthy, nutritious and delicious breakfast. I often go for smoothies but if I want something more I usually turn to porridge or oatmeal.

So, for my kind of breakfast you'll need:
- oats,
- rice or some other vegan milk,
- handful of raisins,
- one tablespoon of chia seeds,
- one banana,
- blueberries and strawberries.

You can easily adapt this recipe, go for apple instead of banana, use cranberries instead of raisins and so on. If you want to follow my recipe than you first need to soak up your oats overnight. Phytic acid in the oats can block the absorption of essential minerals such as iron. We can neutralized the acid by soaking them and that way the minerals can be absorbed properly. In the morning rinse them with water and place into cooking pan. Add a bit of water and milk, rather less than more. You can always add some more. Simmer for about 10 minutes and then stir in chopped banana, raisins and chia seeds. Leave for a few minutes and you're almost finished! Pour into a cup and sprinkle with blueberries and strawberries. Done! :) 
And be sure to also add some cinnamon, I ran out so it's not in the recipe.

Andalou Naturals Crazy

May 21, 2014


Čas za nove pridobitve! Tokrat se mi malo odpeljalo in sem kupila kar nekaj Andalou Naturals izdelkov. :) Pred približno dvema tednoma so bili na iHerbu njihovi izdelki znižani za 20% in seveda je to odličen razlog za nakup, kajne? :)
Andalou Naturals Haul
V mojo košarico so se prikradli Argan & Sweet Orange Šampon in Balzam, ki sta globoko vlažilna in primerna za suhe, skodrane in barvane lase. Dišita prečudovito in komaj čakam, da ju preizkusim. V manjših embalažah se skrivata Sunflower & Citrus Šampon za lesk in sijaj las ter poživljajoč in sladko dišeč Mandarin Vanilla Gel za tuširanje. Za nego obraza pa me je premamila maska BioActive 8 Berry Fruit Enzyme Mask, ki deluje kot encimski piling in nežno odstrani odmrle celice ter stimulira proizvodnjo kolagena in elastina. Druga maska je eden izmed izdelkov iz nove linije za občutljivo kožo, Rosewater Mask, vlažilna maska za obraz. Zadnji izdelek je prav tako iz linije za občutljivo kožo, Absolute Serum, ki naj bi bil po opisu "flower power for beautiful skin". Ja, prosim! :) 

Tako, če bodo vsi izdelki tako krasno učinkovali kot dišijo, potem bo super! Če pa ne, vam bom pa že še povedala, ko ji temeljito preizkusim. :)

Aja in da ne pozabim, vsak teden imajo na iHerbu popust na tri ali štiri znamke. Na vrhu njihove spletne strani je z rdečimi črkami napis Specials. Kliknite in boste videli katere znamke imajo znižane. Trenutno so še vedno znižani Real Techniques čopiči, ki so več kot odlični!


Translation
Sooo, I went a bit Andalou Naturals crazy. :) About two weeks ago iHerb had 20% off on the entire selection of their products and how could I resist? I think that was a great excuse to do some shopping, don't you think? :) But before we go onto the products let me just quickly tell you about their discount. They have it every week, usually it's 20% off the entire selection of three or four brands. Just search for the Specials on the top of their page, it's in red so I'm sure you won't miss it!
After a quick browse through Andalou Naturals products I went for their Moisture Rich Argan & Sweet Shampoo and Conditioner for dry, curly and treated hair. They smell so fruity and sweet, I can't wait to try them. I also bought another shampoo but in the mini version, the Sunflower & Citrus for natural and color-treated hair. The other mini is Mandarin Vanilla Shower Gel which smells as beautiful as the name suggests, sweet and delicious. That's all for hair and body, now let's move on to the face. I spotted a new line for sensitive skin with roses. Oh, roses! Rosewater Mask and Absolute Serum sounded amazing. Mask is deeply hydrating, it delivers cellular support to soothe, nourish and transform sensitive skin and the serum is "flower power for beautiful skin". Can't wait to test them out! Last but not least is another mask, the BioActive 8 Berry Fruit Enzyme Mask which contains a potent portfolio of antioxidants and fruit juice enzymes that gently dissolve dull, dry surface cells.
If all products work as well as they smell than I'll be very happy! If not I'll definitely let you know. :)


Have a great day!

Blue on the Eyes

May 18, 2014


Nisem ravno največja ljubiteljica senčil za oči. Saj so čudovita, le ne ljubi se mi ukvarjati z njimi. Če pa jih že uporabim, ostajam pri nevtralnih in zemeljskih tonih. Čeprav barvnih senčil sploh ne uporabljam, pa sem kar nekaj časa iskala prav določen odtenek modre barvice. Popolno nasprotje mojemu trenutnemu vsakodnevnemu ličenju. :) Na koncu sem ga našla v Sanolaborju za približno 3€ - Benecos naravni kajal v popolni modri barvi, Bright Blue.
Benecos Bright Blue Eyeliner Natural Kajal
FOTD Benecos Bright BLue Eyeliner
Kajal ima odlično pigmentiranost, je mehke in kremaste teksture, z lahkoto se zabriše a po drugi strani se tudi ne obdrži cel dan. No, saj ne izgine v celoti, le malo in ni več tako intenzivno pigmentiran kot ob nanosu. Še vseeno pa ga obožujem!
Benecos Natural Kajal Bright Blue

*In prosim ignorirajte obrvi, jih puščam rasti. :)


Translation
I'm not the biggest fan of eyeshadows. They do look beautiful but I just can't be bothered with them. If I actually wear then I always go for the neutral or earthy tones, I rarely if ever wear color. But I have been searching for a nice blue eyeliner for a while and in the end I found the perfect blue color in the Benecos Natural Kajal in the shade Bright Blue. It's really pigmented, has a lovely buttery texture and it's super blendable. On the other hand it also doesn't last all day. Don't get me wrong, it doesn't just disappear from the eye, it's just less intensely pigmented than when applied but I still love it.

*Oh and please ignore my eyebrows, I'm growing them out. :) 


Have a lovely Sunday,

Which Body Lotion to Choose?

May 15, 2014


Trenutno imam na zalogi kar nekaj krem za telo, občutno več kot običajno. Nekatere so odlične, druge ne, zato jih bom na kratko predstavila.
Body Lotion Alverde Kneipp Acure Sante
Acure Calming Body Lotion - odličen losjon, ki prekrasno diši po sivki, vsebuje čudovite sestavine in kožo globoko navlaži. Več o njem si lahko preberete tukaj.

Kneipp Body Lotion Almond Blossom - med vsemi mi je ta najmanj všeč. Ima kar prijeten vonj, a na žalost vsebuje parfum in vonj losjon je zame premočan. Vonj se sicer dolgo obdrži na koži. Med sestavinami so med drugim še, sladko mandljevo olje, jojobino in avokadovo olje, eterično olje pomaranče, limone, mandarine in sivke. Losjon je dokaj redke teksture kar meni ni preveč všeč, se ga pa tako porabi manj. Losjon se dokaj težko razmaže a ko se, se hitro vpije v kožo. Losjon kožo navlaži, ni pa nič posebnega in za zelo suho kožo ni primeren.

Sante Body Lotion Goji Power - moj trenutni prekrasno dišeč favorit! Vsebuje izvleček goji jagod, kokosovo in jojobino olje ter olje kamelije, karitejevo in kupaku maslo, ekstrakt limone ter na žalost tudi alkohol, a kože ne izsušuje. Diši po limoni, po limonini torti, njam! Losjon je zelo prijeten za uporabo, lepo se razmaže in hitro vpije.

Alverde Body Lotion Tonka Bean - losjon z vonjem tonke. Ko sem pred kratkim kupila tale losjon, ki je mimogrede na voljo v paketu skupaj s kremo za tuširanje in s kremo za roke, se mi niti sanjalo ni kaj je tonka. Glede na wikipedijo je to fižol, ki so ga uporabljali kot nadomestek vanilije. Mene sicer ne spominja na vanilijo, ima pa prijetno sladek in nevsiljiv vonj, ki se na koži hitro porazgubi. V kožo se hitro vpije in jo dokaj dobro vlaži.

Alverde Body Butter Berries - maslo za telo z vonjem po jagodičevju je tako kot prejšnji losjon iz Alverdine omejene kolekcije. Maslo je namenjeno zelo suhi koži in čeprav vsebuje alkohol, če se ne motim ga na žalost tako ali tako vsi Alverdini izdelki, je zelo vlažilno in hranljivo. Čeprav se v izdelkih izogibam alkoholu, se vsake toliko časa res ne morem upreti tem maslom za telo, ker so hranljivi in poceni. Ta pa še lepo diši po jagodičevju. Negativna stran je, da je v izdelku sestavina, ki je sestavljena iz palmovega olja, ki se ga načeloma izogibam.


Translation
I have quite a few body lotions at the moment, I usually have one or two, so now is the perfect time to write a quick post about them.

Acure Calming Body Lotion is one of my favourite. It has a beautiful list of ingredients, the scent of lavender is really relaxing and calming and it also does an awesome job at moisturizing! Read more here.

 Kneipp Body Lotion Almond Blossom is my least favourite. It has quite a pleasant scent but unfortunately contains perfume and therefore the smell is much too strong for my liking. Among the ingredients are also sweet almond oil, jojoba and avocado oil, lavender, orange, mandarin and lemon peel oil. The lotion has quite a runny texture which I'm not too fond of but you use less that way. It absorbs quickly into the skin and leaves it quite moisturized but nothing special, I'd say it's just alright.

Sante Body Lotion Goji Power is my favourite at the moment, I love it. It contains goji berry extract, coconut, jojoba and camellia oil, shea and cupuacu butter, lemon peel extract. It also contains alcohol but fortunately it doesn't dry out my skin. It's actually very pleasant to use, it absorbs quickly and it has the best scent of lemons and lemon cake ever, yum!

Alverde Tonka Bean Body Lotion is my most recent purchase. It comes in a limited edition set with body wash and hand cream. I bought this on a whim, I couldn't smell it but for the price I was like screw it, it can be that bad. And I was right, it has a lovely sweet unobtrusive scent of tonka beans. And no, I didn't know what tonka was. :) Wikipedia says that tonka are some kind of beans that had been used as a vanilla substitute.

Alverde Body Butter Berries is a lovely and rich body butter and even though it also contains alcohol it's still very moisturizing and nourishing. Alverde products are not really the best, if I'm not mistaken they all contain alcohol but every so often I can't resist one of their body butters.

Quick Hair Fix

May 13, 2014


Imate dneve, ko želite malo več volumna v laseh? Ali pa se vam vam le ne ljubi umiti las pa bi bili ti že potrebni osvežitve? Jaz jih imam in takrat se zatečem k mojima zvestima spremljevalcema, otroškemu pudru in gumici za lase. Nikoli nisem uporabljala suhih šamponov v sprejih, otroški puder deluje odlično na mojih laseh in zakaj bi torej sploh uporabila kaj drugega. :)
Country Comfort Pure and Natural Herbal Baby Powder
Moj trenutni puder izbire je Country Comfort Baby Powder, ki ne vsebuje talca in umetnih polnil ter ni testiran na živalih. Otroški puder vsebuje prah korenine arrowroot, belo glino, brest, korenino gabeza, zlati pečat ali zlati koren, aloe vero, olje pomaranče in sivke. Naraven in zeliščni puder uporabljam, ko imam lase že malo mastne ali pa ko želim malo več volumna, kar je sicer redko. Sem že tako ali tako navajena, da pač nimam nobenega volumna v laseh in mi je že vseeno. :) 
Puder nanesem neposredno na lasišče in fino vmasiram. Je bele barve zato si včasih pomagam še z brisačo, da ni nobenih belih lis. Za temnolaske sicer ni ravno najboljša izbira, a za svetlolaske je odličen. Puder nase veže maščobo in lasje takoj izgledjo osveženi in to traja cel dan! Poleg pudra je ob takih dnevih nujna tudi gumica za lase. In ne zdaj misliti, da imam čop le takrat, ko skrivam mastne lase. :)

Do you have days when you want a little more volume in your hair? Or days when you don't have time or you're just too lazy to wash your hair? When I have those days I whip up my baby powder and a nice hair tie or any other random hair tie. I've never used a dry shampoo, for me baby powders work great and lately I've been loving the Country Comfort Baby Powder. The baby powder contains pure powders of arrowroot, kaolin clay, slippery elm, comfrey root, golden seal, aloe vera, pure oils of orange and lavender and natural fragrance. No talc or fillers and it's also cruelty free. I use this pure and natural herbal powder whenever I have oily hair or when I want more volume. Which is actually all the time but I just can't be bothered with it so I mainly use it for those nasty days. :) So, I apply the powder at the roots of my hair, massage it and that is it! It works great on my blond hair but if you have dark hair the baby powder is not the best choice. It's white and I'm sure you don't want to have a white cast on the top of your head. Otherwise it works wonders at absorbing moisture or should I say oils. :) And it actually keeps you hair looking fresh all day! Oh and the other thing is to make a ponytail, braid or bun, just keep those hair kinda tight and away from the pretty face. And just so you'll know I don't wear my hair up only on greasy hair days. :)

Benecos Natural Powder Blush Sassy Salmon

May 09, 2014


Ste v iskanju popolnega koralnega rdečila za poletje? Potem morate preizkusiti Benecos rdečilo Sassy Salmon*. Rdečilo v krasni koralni barvi lososa ustvari svež videz, ki po mojem mnenju pristaja vsem odtenkom kože, sploh pa tistim z rumenim podtonom.
Benecos Sassy Salmon Natural Powder Blush
Benecos
Kot sem že pisala v objavi o Benecos Mallow Rose odtenku, rdečilo ne vsebuje škodljivih kemikalij in ima BDIH certifikat. Vsebuje pa barvilo karmin.

Sestavine (INCI): Talc, Mica, Kaolin, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil,
Ricinus Communis Seed Oil, Magnesium Stearate, Glyceryl Caprylate, P-Anisic
Acid,Tocopherol, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil, (+/- May Contain CI 77891, CI 77491,
CI 77492, CI 77499, CI 77742, CI 75470, TIN OXIDE))
Benecos Natural Compact Blush for a Fresh and Subtle Complexion, Sassy Salmon
Benecos Sassy Salmon Blush, Alverde Magic Kiss Lipstick
FOTD with Benecos Blush Sassy Salmon
Rdečilo je srednje obstojno in tudi srednje pigmentirano, kar je super, ker lahko dosežemo res naraven in svež videz, z le nekaj potegi čopiča po rdečilu pa lahko dosežemo večjo pigmentiranost. Rdečilo se odlično zabriše in je res enostavno za uporabo. S Sassy Salmon rdečilom sem zadovoljna in je eden izmed dveh, ki sem ju v zadnjem času zelo uporabljala. Drugi je seveda Mallow Rose. :) Z veseljem bi preizkusila še kakšno Benecos rdečilo, ko bi le imeli še kakšen odtenek več in ne le tri. Na voljo tukaj.

Looking for the perfect coral blush for this summer? Then you need to try the Benecos Natural Powder Blush in Sassy Salmon*. It's a gorgeous warm salmony coral shade that compliments any skin tone, especially those with warm undertones. As I already wrote in the post about Benecos Mallow Rose, blush doesn't contain nasty ingredients and has a BDIH certificate. But it does contain carmine if you're avoiding it. 
The blush has a medium lasting power, the same is with the pigmentation which I actually really like because you can achieve a natural and fresh look. What's even better is it's buildable, if you want more you just have to swirl your brush in the blush and there you have it! And it also blends great. I love this blush and I would really love if they'd have more shades not just three. :)

Lily Organics Oil Free Skin Conditioning Serum

May 07, 2014


Lily Organics je ameriška znamka naravne in ekološke kozmetike, ki je nastala leta 1986. Veliko sestavin gojijo na svoji ekološki kmetiji in jih nato uporabijo pri izdelavi v ekološkem laboratoriju. Nikoli ne uporabljajo sintetičnih sestavin, izdelki so brez glutena in znamka ne testira na živalih. Lily Organics ima kar nekaj čudovitih izdelkov, na mojem testiranju pa je prvi pristal njihov serum za normalno kožo.
Lily Organics Farm Fresh Oil Free Skin Conditioning Serum for Normal Skin
 Serum brez olja regenerira in učvrščuje ter kožo obenem zdravi in vlaži. Stimulira prozivodnjo novih celic in izboljšuje delovanje kože. Serum temelji na aloe vera gelu, za aloe vero pa verjetno vsi veste, da je čudežna rastlina, ki lahko pozdravi marsikaj. Vsebuje tudi zeliščni kompleks dveh morskih alg, kelpa in irskega mahu, kamilico, ognjič, gabez, hmelj, arniko in še kaj. Serum je v prozorni stekleni embalaži na pumpico, ki omogoča enostavno uporabo.
Lily Organics Oil Free Skin Conditioning Serum ingredients
Lily Organics Oil Free Serum for Normal Skin
Serum uporabljam skoraj dva meseca, zjutraj in zvečer, uporabila sem ga polovico. Za obraz in vrat uporabim tri pritiske na pumpico. Izdelek je zelo lahke teksture in kot je za serume značilno, ima redkejšo teksturo kot naprimer kreme za obraz. Serum ne diši, meni ima vonj po mešanici alkohola in zelišč, kot kakšna alkoholna pijača. Ja, serum na petem mestu vsebuje alkohol (natural grain alcohol), kar sem med pregledovanjem sestavin pri nakupu spregledala, a na srečo mi ne povzroča nobenih težav. Zelo hitro se vpije v kožo in jo nato tudi rahlo zateguje, kar me ne moti, ker takoj za serumom nanesem kremo. Sicer je serum namenjen tudi le kot dnevna ali nočna krema, a po mojem mnjenju to ne drži. Že samo zaradi občutka zategovanja kože ne. Na sploh pa serum ni nadomestilo za kremo in za popolno nego obraza potrebujete oboje, najprej se nanese serum in nato kremo. 
In čeprav je serum primeren za normalno kožo, je v mojem primeru odličen tudi za mešano kožo in zaradi lahkotnosti bi bil brez dvoma super tudi za mastno kožo. Serum ne maši por, je vlažilen in deluje kot odlična podlaga za nanos dnevne ali nočne kremo ali olja. Menim, da velikih čudežev ravno ne dela, res pa izboljša videz kože in hitreje zaceli drobne ranice.
Na voljo tukaj.


Translation
Lily Organics is an American brand of natural and organic skincare founded in 1986. Many of their ingredients are grown on their own USDA certified organic farm and used in ther lab which is also USDA certified organic. They never use synthetic ingredients, the brand is gluten and cruelty free. They have quite a few lovely looking products but my first Lily Organics product is the Oil Free Skin Conditioning Serum for normal skin.
With daily use serum conditions and firms skin while it heals and moisturizes. Stimulates cell proliferation and improves skin performance. Serum is based on aloe vera gel and I think we all know how beneficial aloe vera is, it can heal quite a lot. Among some other things serum also contains water herbal complex of two seaweeds, kelp and irish moss, chamomile, calendula, comfrey, hops, arnica. It comes in a nice glass bottle with a pump which is very handy.
I've been using this serum for almost two months, twice a day and I've used about a half of the bottle. I always use three pumps, two for my face and one for my neck. Serum has a very light texture and like it's typical for serums it has quite a runny consistency. I don't really like the scent of it, smells like alcohol and herbs, like some alcoholic drink. Yes, serum contains alcohol (natural grain alcohol) which I totally missed while checking the ingredients but fortunately it hasn't been causing any problems. Serum absorbs really quickly and makes my skin slightly dry and tight but that doesn't bother me much because I always use day or night cream or oil right after. On the packaging it is also suggested to use it as a light free moisturizer but I didn't even think about using it that way! I hate the feeling of tight and dry skin! In my opinion it's best to use both, serum and moisturizer or oil. 
Oh and although the serum is meant for normal skin, it also works great for my combination skin and I think it would be great on oily skins as well. It doesn't break me out and it's moisturizing. I will say that it isn't a miracle product but it heals my skin quicker and improves the apperance of it.
You can get it here.
