Tins of Loveliness

July 06, 2014


Se tudi vam dogaja, da za počitnice spakirate več kot v resnici potrebujete? Ah meni se to vedno zgodi in letos sem napakirala kar precej kozmetike, morda ne ravno toliko kot bi je res potrebovala. A nič zato, sem se zaradi tega vsaj domislila nove objave o treh večnamenskih balmih, ki so potovali z mano na morje in so zdaj z mano na žalost že doma.
 Indigo Wild Zum Rub Frankincense & Myrrh – izmed treh je ta moj najljubši! Glavni sestavini sta frankincense oziroma kadilna bosvelija ali frankovski dišeči grm in mira. Smoli, ki ju že tisočletja uporabljajo v aromaterapiji, odišavljenju prostorov, pri meditaciji in verskih obredih. Balm ima prekrasen vonj, je izjemno vlažilen in zelo hranljiv. Odlično vpliva na zatiranje nastajajočih mozoljev ter tudi na hitrejše zdravljenje oziroma celjenje. Kot se za balme spodobi je primeren za celo telo, za nego obraza, za suhe pete in stopala, suhe ustnice, za zdravljenje brazgotin, tatujev, opeklin. Je kar precej masten in tako super za nočno nego obnohtne kožice in nego lasnih konic, primeren pa je tudi za odstranjevanje ličil. Med sestavinami je meni najbolj zanimivo kozje mleko, nisem še imela izdelka, ki bi ga vseboval. Kar je pri balmu krasno pa je tudi embalaža z navojem.
Meow Meow Tweet Repair Balm** - po zaslugi eteričnih olj mire, kamilice in vetiverja  ima tudi ta balm prijeten vonj. Vsebuje še sezamovo olje, karitejevo maslo in vosek kandelije. Za razliko od preostalih dveh ne vsebuje sestavin živalskega izvora in je torej primeren tudi za vegane. Znamka, ki nastaja v Brooklynu ima na izdelkih najbolj zanimive skice živalih. Zelo všečno! Balm je seveda primeren za celo telo, kot pa pove že samo ime izdelka je namenjen pomirjanju in obnovitvi kože. Všeč mi je, ker ni tako oljnat in dokaj stabilen tudi na toplem ter se ne stopi, hitro se vpije v kožo in je super za dnevno uporabo. Ni pa najbolj vlažilen in za dobro nahranitev in zelo suho kožo ni primeren.
Badger Anti-Bug Balm – edini res nujno! potreben balm. Tisti, ki me poznajo vedo, da sem vedno cela popikana zaradi komarjev. Oh kako jih preziram! No, balm deluje, ker nimam nobenega pika in upam, da bo tako tudi ostalo. Balm diši limonasto, aktivne sestavine so mešanica ricinovega olja z eteričnimi olji citronele, cedre, limonske trave, rožmarina in geranije. Preostali sestavini sta še ekstra deviško olivno olje in čebelji vosek. Voska je kar precej, ker je balm bolj trde strukture in se sploh ne topi. Super za potovanja. Kakšna je pravilna uporaba balma sicer ne vem, jaz ga nanesem na dele telesa, kjer se nanaša parfum. Torej za ušesi oziroma na vrat, na zapestja, pregibe komolcev in kolen pa tudi na gležnja. Zaenkrat deluje, če ne se bom pa cela namazala z njim. :)

Do you pack too much? Sometimes I pack too many clothes but this time I was all about cosmetics. I had quite a few things, khm khm. :) No worries, at least it inspired me too write a new blog post about three multi-purposed balms that I had with me on vacation.
Indigo Wild Zum Rub Frankincense & Myrrh - of the three, this one is my favourite. It contains frankincense and myrrh so you can imagine that it smells good. Real good! It is very moisturizing and nourishing. Balm is meant for dry skin, you can apply it where yor body needs it moist – chapped skin, cracked heels, cuticles, lips, healing scars, tattoos, sunburns. It works great as an acne treatment, I love using it on pimples, it calms them down and just heals them quicker. It's quite oily and therefore wonderful as a nightime treatment for dry cuticles and feet. It can also be used as a make-up removal and on dry hair ends. All in all it's a beautiful balm in a great packaging with a gorgeous scent. And don't you find it interesting that contains goat's milk? I've never had a product with it.
Meow Meow Tweet Repair Balm** - thanks to essential oils of myrrh, chamomile and vetiver this one has a lovely scent as well. The balm also contains sesame oil, shea butter and candelilla wax. Suitable for vegans. Brooklyn based brand has the cutest pictures of animals on their products, love that! You can apply it to hands, face and body to soothe and restore. I like that it's not too oily and it's quite stable even in warmer months and easily absorbed. Great for daily use. The only downside is that it's not as moisturizing as I'd like to and therefore it's not the best option if you're in need of a proper nourishing or you wanna treat very dry skin.
Badger Anti-Bug Balm – this one is a must! Mosquitoes love me and that's really all I have to say. Aghrgh! The wonderful news is that the balm works! Active ingredients are castor oil mixed with essentials oils of citronella, cedar, lemongrass, rosemary and geranium. It has a nice lemony scent. Balm also contains extra virgin olive oil and beeswax, a lot of it beacuse it doesn't melt so easily as some other balms. Great for travel. I don't know the right way of using it, I apply it the same way as perfume – behind my ears on my neck, wrists, behind my elbows and knees. And on the ankles just to be safe. So far it's been working great and if it stops I'll just apply it all over my body! :)


With all my love,
Jana xx
