Before Bed

May 05, 2015


V zadnjem času sem opazila, da se izdelki v moji večerni rutini nenehno ponavljajo in to me je navdihnilo za današnjo objavo. Nočno nego obraza sem raje izpustila, ker se prepogosto spreminja. Raje sem se posvetila izdelkom, ki me že dlje časa spremljajo na poti do sanj.
Devotion Obrazni Dnevni Balzam Sivka* - ročno izdelan, krasno dišeč balzam po sivki je primeren za nego mešane kože. Sivka je močan antiseptik in tako odlično deluje v boju proti mozoljem, obenem pa balzam varuje tudi pred učinki staranja, ima preventivni učinek na nastajanje gubic, kožo pomlajuje, neguje in vlaži. Bogato razkošen balzam ali balm vsebuje masla in olja, kot so naprimer mangovo in karitejevo maslo, mandljevo olje in macerat sivke v jojobinem olju. Celoten spisek sestavin tukaj. Sestavin med izdelavo ne pregrevajo, izdelki niso rafinirani, procesirani ali pasterizirani, ne vsebujejo vode, kemikalij, umetnih arom in konzervansov. Balzam je izredno hranljiv a obenem ne maši por, temveč kožo naredi gladko in zelo mehko. Zaradi svoje kvalitetne sestave se ga porabi izjemno malo, kar je pri balmih vedno ogromen plus. Čeprav ga rada uporabljam za večerno nego obraza, se mu podnevi raje izognem, ker če se ne motim sivka poveča občutljivost kože na sončno svetlobo. Moj najljubši način uporabe pa je na vratu in dekolteju. Kožo izjemno navlaži in nahrani, jo naredi mehko in gladko. Čudovit izdelek ustvarjen na Hvaru, ki je znan po poljih cvetoče modro-vijolične sivke in se pravzaprav imenuje tudi "otok sivke". Logo sonca pa je sploh nadvse primerno, se vam ne zdi? Hvar, sivka, sonce, morje, oh vse kar si trenutno želim. Več o slovensko-hrvaški naravni kozmetiki izdelani iz ekološko pridelanih certificiranih sestavin pa lahko najdete na njihovi Facebook strani.
Blue Labelle Hand Oil - olje za roke za zrelo in suho kožo. Vsebuje mešanico rastlinskih in eteričnih olj, med njimi so mandljevo, jojobino in šipkovo olje, med eteričnimi pa mi je najbolj všeč rožmarinovo olje. Ta namreč pospešuje prekrvavitev in tako vpliva na hitrejšo rast nohtov. Olje zaradi tega še raje vmasiram v nothe in obnohtno kožico. Sicer pa lahko več o ostalih zdravilnih učinkovinah v sestavinah lahko preberete tukaj. Ker je sama tekstura oljnata in mastna, je kot nalašč za večerno nego ali gledanje serij, ko delo z rokami ni potrebno. Vedno nanesem dve kapljici oziroma dva pritiska na pumpico, kar je ravno prav za roke in nohte. Kožo dobro navlaži in zmehča, olje pa je zelo prijetno tudi zaradi vonja po rožmarinu, geraniji in palmarosi.
Bohemian Harvest Lavender + Honey Lip Salve - seveda moram v svoj večerni obred vključiti tudi vazelin za ustnice s sivko. Le kako ne, če pa diši tako prijetno. Poleg sivke je prisoten še vonj kakavovega masla in verjemite mi, diši krasno! Poleg tega pa zaradi hranljivih sestavin, kot sta kokosovo olje in med, ustnice odlično navlaži in naredi mehke.

Čaj - vsak dan, cel dan, je moja mantra za čaj. :) Ob večerih se najbolj priležejo pomirjujoči čaji in naslednji trije so moji najljubši.
Yogi Bedtime čaj vsebuje sestavine, kot so kamilica, janež, meto in druga zelišča, ki pomirjajo in vplivajo na boljši spanec.
Hofer Lahko noč, Bio zeliščni čaj - poleg melise, janeža, bezgovih cvetov, hmeljevih storžkov in cvetov modrega glavinca, vsebuje tudi liste koprive, ki telo razstruplja in izloča toksične snovi.
DIY čaj s kumino, janežem, črno kumino in kamilico prekrasno pomirja celo telo, tudi neprijetne prebavne motnje. Uporabim približno ščepec vsake sestavine. Pripravim ga tako, da v mrzlo vodo dam obe kumini in janež, nato pustim vreti kakšno minuto ali dve, ter dodam kamilico. Odstavim in pustim 5 do 7 minut. Dober po okusu, dober za um in telo.
Zvočne knjige - moram reči, da sem v zadnjem času postala velika navdušenka nad poslušanjem knjig. Moj fant me je že ne vem koliko časa prepričeval nad tem, a nikoli me ni pritegnilo, ker sem poleg vedno razmišljala o čem drugem in na koncu sploh nisem vedela kaj se dogaja. Prepričala me je prava knjiga ob pravem času - I Hunt Killers (Barry Lyga) in glavobol. :) Od takrat sem poslušala že marsikatero knjigo, trenutno sem navdušena nad The Dresden Files (Jim Butcher). Oboje zelo priporočam! Aja, pa Red Rissing (Pierce Brown) je prav tako super!


Translation
Lately I've been noticing a lot of the same products in my evening routine so why not do a blog post about them? I skiped my evening skincare routine, because it changes too often to write about it, but some other things are pretty much my current constant. They are all super lovely and realxing.

Devotion Lavender Primal Beauty Balm* - beautiful handmade lavender balm is suitable for combination skin. Lavender is a wonderful antiseptic and is therefore great for combating those annoying spots. Besides this the product is also great for its anti aging properties, it's nourishing and moisturizing. A luxurious rich balm contains balms and oils, like Mango and Shea Butter, Almond Oil and Lavender Infused Jojoba Oil, and two or three ingredients more. These and every other ingredients they use are not overheated, and none of their products are refined, processed or pasteurized. Devotion prouducts don't contain water, chemicals, artificial colours, aromas and preservatives. Balm is super nourishing and rich but at the same time it doesn't clog my pores. It makes my skin smooth and super soft. Yay! And you only need just a tiny amount of it, which is always a big plus. Although I like using it in my evening skincare routine, I rather stay away from it in the daytime, becasue if I'm not mistaken, Lavender can cause the skin to be more sensitive and receptive to sunlight. My favourite way of using it is on my neck and decolletage. It nourishes and moistuirizes my skin and makes it so soft and smooth. It's a gorgeous product, which is actually made on Hvar, a Croatian Island, which is known for its blossoming fields of purple blue lavender. Therefore Hvar is also known as "the island of lavender". And what about that cute sun on the packaging, I find it most appropriate! Hvar, lavender, sun, sea, oh everything I wish for right  now! More about this Slovenian-Croatian brand made with organically produced and certified ingredients here.

Blue Labelle Hand Oil - another beautiful product from an island, this one is from England, from the Isle of Wight, to be exact. A hand oil for mature or dry skin contains a mixture of plant and essential oils - Almond, Jojoba, Rosehip, Rosemary and more. I really like the last one, Rosemary, which improves blood circulation and helps to grow long and healty nails. Thus I really love massaging it into my nails and cuticles. A whole list of ingredients here, where you can also read all of the amazing and healing properties. Naturally, the texture of a hand oil is oily and is therefore great for an evening use. Or for lounging in front of TV. I always use two pumps, which is the perfect amount for hands and nails. Oil makes my skin moistuirized and soft, and I also like the scent of it - smells like Rosemary, Geranium and Palmarosa.

Bohemian Harvest Lavender + Honey Lip Salve - of course I have to have a lavender sceneted lip balm in my evening routine. This balm actually smells really wonderful, like Lavender and Cocoa Butter, yummy! Amongst the ingredients are also Coconut Oil and Honey, so you can just imagine how soft, moistuirized and smooth it makes my lips.

Tea - all day, every day is my mantra for tea. :) In the evenings I really love drinking tea with calming and soothing properties and the next three are my current faves.

*Yogi Bedtime Tea contains Fennel, Chamomile, Peppermint and other herbs, spices and flowers that makes you relax before sleep.

*Hofer Good Night Organic Herbal Tea contains Lemon Balm, detoxifying Nettle Fennel, Elderflowers, Hops and Cornflower, which looks so beautiful in the green-ish mixture, don't you agree?

*DIY tea with Cumin, Black Cumin, Anise (similar to Fennel) and Chamomile. I use about a pinch of each. My perfect calming tea, which is also great if you have an upset stomach. Or for when you just want to drink something soothing and delicious. Interested in how I make it? First I add Cumin, Black Cumin and Anise seeds into a small pot, pour some cold water on top and then leave it boiling for a minute or two. Then I add Chamomile and remove off the stove. Leave for 5 to 7 minutes and that's it. Good for your body and soul.

Audiobooks - I have to say that lately I've been super into audiobooks. My boyfriend was pretty much failing at convincing me to do that, I was always thinking of something else and didn't know what the story was about. But the right book at the right time did the trick. I was having a headache and I felt sorry for myself, so Jaka hooked me up with a book called I Hunt Killers (Barry Lyga) and I didn't look back ever since. :) At the moment I'm listening The Dresden Files (Jim Butcher) and I love it as well. Actually I really recommend both of these and the Red Rissing (Pierce Brown) is also amazing!


Do you use and love any of these products? How does your evening routine look like?

With love,
Jana xx

    1. Thanks babe!<3 Hmm I'm not sure, maybe, but the thing that is really helping my nails at the moment is drinking hemp seed oil, which is rich in omega 3 and I guess my nails are really feeling that :)) Ooh you're very welcome, I hope she will! :) You can also made it without black seed cumin, I didn't use it for the longest time and the tea was also super yummy! I just bought it recently so I include it now :) xx
