Silkka Garden Apothecary Sweet Orange + Mango Body Balm

September 02, 2014


Obožujem dober izdelek za telo in moja trenutno najljubša krema oziroma maslo za nego telesa je Silkka Garden Apothecary Sweet Orange + Mango Body Balm. Kanadska, ročno izdelana kozmetika, ki jo je ustanovila nadvse prijazna Liisa, ni testirana na živalih ter ne vsebuje škodljivih sintetičnih sestavin.

Maslo vsebuje neprečiščena in hladno stiskana olja in masla, kot so avokadovo, mandljevo in sojino olje ter olje mareličnih pešk, karitejevo in mangovo maslo. Maslo v 100 ml embalaži v temnem steklu s preprostim a čudovitim dizajnom, vsebuje še čebelji vosek iz Ontaria in eterični olji sladke pomaranče in mandarine. Zaradi vsebnosti teh dveh eteričnih olj, masla ni priporočljivo nanašati na kožo pred izpostavljanjem soncu, ker delujejo fototoksično. To je omenjeno tudi na embalaži kar je ogromen plus, večina znamk tega ne izpostavi. In ko že govorim o eteričnih oljih, če imate radi sladek, citrusen vonj po pomaranči in mandarini, potem bo to maslo odlična izbira. Najprej sem sicer pričakovala, da se bo vonjal tudi mango a nič zato, saj diši prekrasno! Vonj je zelo podoben preljubemu Acure losjonu za telo.

Maslo ima značilno konsistenco balmov, je gost, oljnat in prekrasno mazljiv. Koža je po uporabi nahranjena, mehka in sijoča. Maslo se v kožo ne vpije takoj ampak pusti rahel oljnat film. Ni ravno primerno za jutranjo uporabo in nato tlačenje v kavbojke, je pa več kot odlično za večerno uporabo. Na zgornji fotografiji se ne vidi, a masla je le še pol, zato ga bolj kot za celo telo raje uporabljam le na vratu in dekolteju, komolcih, kolenih in stopalih. To poletje sem malce prenehala s suhim krtačenjem kože in zaradi hladnejšega vremena v zadnjem mesecu sem se ponoči nekajkrat zbudila zaradi mojega praskanja po nogah. Upam, da ostale nimate teh težav! Hitro sem nazaj uvedla suho krtačenje, obenem začela uporabljati tudi to maslo in moram reči, da res učinkuje. Ja, priporočam! Nekaj podobnega pa si nedvomno lahko naredite tudi doma. :)

Translation
I love a good body cream and at the moment my favourite has to be the Silkka Garden Apothecary Sweet Orange + Mango Body Balm. Canadian brand founded by the very sweet and lovely Liisa, is cruelty free and free of harmful synthetics. Products are handmade and developed to order.

Balm contains beautiful, unrefined, cold pressed oils and butters, such as Avocado, Apricot Kernel, Sweet Almond and non-GMO Soybean oil, Shea and Mango Butter. Body balm that comes in a 100 ml amber glass jar with a simple yet gorgeous design, also contains Ontario Beeswax and essential oils of Sweet Orange and Tangerine. These two essential oils can cause photosensitivity and therefore the body balm is not recommended to use before direct exposure to the sun. The fact that this is written on the packaging is awesome because lots of brands ignore that or just forget to mention it. There are some other phototoxic essential oils so be careful what you're using. Speaking of essential oils, if you like sweet, citrusy scents then this balm will be perfect for you! At first I did expect the scent of mango but that doesn't bother me one bit because it smells wonderful! It's similar to my beloved Acure Advanced Triple Moisture System Body Lotion.

The balm has a thick, oily consistency, depends on the temperature of the storage area. It goes on super smooth and soft, it's a joy to use and it works great. It leaves my skin soft and moisturized. Balm doesn't absorb quickly, it leaves an oily residue. I wouldn't recommend using it in the mornings and then trying to squeeze into your favourite jeans, but it's amazing for evening use. You really can't see in the pictures but I've already used half of it! I don't wanna use it all up in a week so I'm not applying it all over my body. I prefer to use it where I need want a heavy duty moisturization, on my neck and decolletage, elbows, knees and on my feet. This summer I wasn't really all that consistent when it came to dry body brushing and let me tell you, that was a big mistake! This summer was hella cold and about a month ago I found myself scratching my legs in my sleep like a crazy person. I hopped back on the dry brushing train and at that time I also started using this body balm and they both made a massive difference! Yup, I'm really enjoying this product and I think you'll love it too! :)


Love,
Jana xx
