Freeman Facial Polishing Mask Charcoal & Black Shugar


Priznajem, veliki sam ljubitelj Freeman kozmetike, posebno maski za lice (i dok pišem ovaj post na licu mi je ova Freeman maska). Maska koja se poslednja pojavila na našem tržištu i koju sam sa nestrpljenjem očekivala je maska sa ugljem i crnim šećerom. Ova maska je zapravo proizvod koji je nešto između maske i pilinga za lice. Dolazi naravno u klasičnoj Freeman tubici od 150ml, naručuje se preko Kozmetika Teatar sajta, a cena joj je 610.2 dinara.


I admit, I'm a big fan of Freeman cosmetics, especially face masks (as I'm writing this post I have this Freeman mask on my face). The mask, which last appeared on the market and that I eagerly awaited  is the one with charcoal and black sugar. This mask is actually a product that is between a mask and a face scrub. It comes in a classical Freeman tube of 150ml, and can be ordered through Kozmetika Teatar website, for a price of 610.2 RSD.


Ova maska sadrži aktivni ugalj koji deluje antibakterijski, skuplja masnoću sa lica i sprečava upalne procese. Crni šećer osvezava kožu i vrši piling. Maska se nanosi na lice i vrat i treba da odstoji 5 do 7 minuta, a zatim se kružnim pokretima radi piling lica i ispira vodom. Šećer vrši piling srednje jačine. Maska je namenjena svim tipovima kože, a samu kožu ne isušuje opšte. Ako imate osetljivu kožu samo budite pažljivi i blago radite piling. Nakon korišćenja ove maske moja koža je meka, a višak sebuma je uklonjen. Evo ga i sastav (CosDNA):


This mask contains charcoal which has antibacterial properties, collects sebum from the face and prevents inflammation. Black sugar refreshes the skin and does peeling. The mask is supposed to be applied to the face and neck and should stand for five to seven minutes, and then with circular motion you rinse it off with water and do exfoliation. Sugar performs moderate exfoliation. The mask is for all skin types and doesn't dry out the skin. If you have sensitive skin just be careful and gently exfoliate. After using this mask my skin is soft, and excess sebum is removed. Here are the ingredients (CosDNA):


Po meni ovaj proizvod predstavlja neki poboljšani piling. Ne bih ga baš nazvala maskom, pa ako želite da kupite neku tipičnu masku ovo nije proizvod za vas. Ako pak želite dobar piling koji će lepo očistiti lice i ukloniti mrtve ćelije onda definitivno probajte ovaj proizvod. Na meni nije izazvao nikakve negativne reakcije, jedino što mi se malo ne sviđa je što se teže nanosi da stoji na lice kao maska jer pri nanošenju šećer po malo otpada i ne želi da se lepo zalepi za lice.


For me this product represents an improved face scrub. I wouldn't exactly call it a mask, so if you want to buy a typical face mask this is not a product for you. However, if you want a good face scrub to nicely clean the face and remove dead cells, then definitely try this product. In my case it didn't cause any adverse reactions, the only thing I don't like is that it's a little more difficult to apply it to stay on the face as a mask, since sugar doesn't want to stick to the face.


Maskom sam zaista baš zadovoljna, ali moram da priznam da me je malo iznenadila, jer bih je pre nazvala pilingom nego maskom.


I'm really quite pleased with this mask, but I have to admit I was a little surprised, because I would call it a face scrub rather that a mask.


Šta mi se sviđa kod ove maske:
- pakovanje,
- cena,
- radi dobar piling,
- lepo uklanja višak sebuma.

Šta mi se ne sviđa:
- dostupnost,
- malo teže stoji na licu bez otpadanja šećera.

Epilacija u No+Vello salonu - 2. deo - rezultati nakon mesec dana


Pre oko mesec dana prvi put sam bila na epilaciji i to u No+Vello salonu u Bulevaru Arsenija Čarnojevića 64 lok. 26. O celom iskustvu i o epilaciji uopšte pisala sam u ovom postu. Tada sam vam i ostala dužna nastavak te priče tj. da vam prenesem i utiske o rezultatima nakon jednog tretmana.


About a month ago I did my first epilation treatment in No+Vello salon in Bulevar Arsenija Čarnojevića 64 local 26. and I wrote all about the whole experience and about epilation in general in this post. Since then I owed you the second part of the story - my impressions and the results after one treatment.


Kao što verovatno znate epilacija je efikasnija što su dlačice koje se uklanjaju tamnije, pa je samim tim epilacija pazuha koju sam ja radila često vrlo uspešna i već nakon prvog tretmana rezultati su prilično dramatični kod većine žena. Iskreno nisam znala baš šta da očekujem.

Nakon same epilacije treba izbegavati sport i preterano znojenje tog dana. Takođe u sledeća tri dana ne treba koristiti dezodoranse koji u sebi sadrže alkohol. Nekoliko dana nakon tretmana treba tu regiju mazati nekom hidratantnom kremom pošto se koža malo isuši nakon tretmana. Ja sam se mazala možda 4 ili 5 dana i vrlo lako sam kožu povratila i sve vreme je izgledala dobro. Prvo sam mazala dva puta dnevno, a kasnije samo jednom dnevno.


As you probably know epilation is more effective when hair is dark, and therefore armpits epilation, which I did, is often very successful and even after the first treatment the results are quite dramatic for most women. I honestly didn't know exactly what to expect.

After the epilation you should avoid sport and excessive sweating till the end of the day. Also in the next three days you shouldn't use deodorants that contain alcohol. A few days following the treatment you should apply some kind of moisturizer because the skin will get a little dry after the treatment. I did that for about 4 or 5 days and I easily restored the skin and it looked good the whole time. First I applied the moisturizer twice a day, and then only once a day.


Nakon tretmana dlačice su i dalje tu, ali one polako kreću da opadaju i u toku narednih dvadesetak dana broj dlačica se smanjivao. Ja sam se nakon tretmana obrijala i nisam imala potrebu da se ponovo obrijem barem u narednih nedelju dana kada su vrlo malo porasle dlake. Obrijala sam se možda jos 2 ili 3 puta i svaki put je bio sve veći period između brijanja, a broj crnih tačkica tj. dlačica se s vremenom dramatično smanjio. U jednom trenutku bih rekla da je 98% dlaka nestalo i tek po koja je ostala. 

U tom trenutku kreće da raste nova generacija dlačica (dakle to nisu one koje su ubijene prvim tretmanom, već skroz nove). Tada sam namerno prestala sa brijanjem da bih vam pokazala o koliko malom broju dlačica je reč i koliko su tanje od onih starih. Upozoravam da će naredna slika možda nekima biti gadna. Dakle gore je stanje pre epilacija, a donja slika je trenutno stanje nakon jednog tretmana.


After the treatment the hairs are still there, but they slowly start to fall off and in the next twenty days the number of hairs is reduced. I shaved right after the treatment and had no need to re-shave during the next week until some hairs grew a little bit. I shaved maybe 2 or 3 more times and each time the period between shaving became longer, and a number of black dots i.e. hair became dramatically reduced with time. At one point, I would say that 98% of hair was missing, and only just a few remained. 

At this point, a new hair generation started growing (that are the ones that haven't been killed by the first treatment, they are completely new). Then I deliberately stopped shaving so I can show you the small number of hairs that grew out and how much thinner they are compared to the old ones. I'm warning you that the next picture might be ugly for some. So, the upper photo shows the situation before hair removal, and the bottom image is the current state after a single treatment.


Kao što vidite većina dlačica je potpuno nestala, a nekoliko novih je poraslo. Od situacije da već nekoliko sati nakon brijanja koža više ne bude glatka, a tačkice se vide i leti moram da se brijem svaki dan, i tako iziritiram kožu, sa samo jednim tretmanom spala sam na brijanje na nekoliko dana, sa mekanom i lepom kožom i bez ružnih crnih tačkica kada se obrijem. 

Iskreno potpuno sam šokirana i oduševljena efektom. Planiram da sigurno odem i na drugi tretman i rešim se i ovih nekoliko preostalih dlačica i da ovo leto budem potpuno mirna i uživam bez razmišljanja. Baš me zanima koliko dugo će da ovo traje u mom slučaju, a ako se, i kada se, dlačice vrate znam gde ću se odmah zaputiti.


As you can see most of the hairs is completely gone, and just a few new ones grew out. With just one treatment I went from having to shave every day during the summer, irritating my skin and my skin not being smooth just a few hours after shaving, with black dots visible, to shaving every few days, with soft and beautiful skin and without ugly black dots after I shave.

Honestly I'm completely shocked and impressed by the effects. I plan to go on another treatment and remove these few remaining hairs so I can be completely calm and enjoy without thinking during this summer. I wonder how long will this last, in my case, and if and when, the hairs come back I know where I will go.

Flormar Waterproof Eyeliner - No. 101, 102, 107


Evo jednog malo neuobičajenog posta od mene. Danas ću vam pisati o ajlajner olovkama koje najviše koristim u poslednje vreme. Retko pišem ovakve postove, jer mi se čine blago nezanimljivi, a i da budem iskrena ne koristim olovke za oči baš često. Imala sam, kao i verovatno većina devojaka, momenat crne olovke na donjim trepavicama, ali to me je u poslednje vreme prošlo. Rešila sam da nabavim neke malo blaže boje i odmah su mi se izdvojile Flormarove olovke u sivoj i braon boji.


Here's a little unusual post from me. Today I will write about some eyeliners that I use the most at the moment. I rarely write these posts because they seem to me slightly uninteresting, and to be honest I do not use eyeliners of this sort often. I had, as probably most girls, a time when I used black eyeliner on the lower lashes, but that moment has passed. I decided to get a little softer colours and these Flormar eyeliners in gray and brown stood up from the crowd.


Dakle predstavljam vam tri olovke iz linije vodootpornih ajlajnera, a nijanse su im 101 (crna), 102 (siva) i 107 (braon). Ova linija ima još mnogo nijansi i to:


So I'll write about three waterproof eyeliners and their shades are 101 (black), 102 (gray) and 107 (brown). This line has a lot more shades and these are:


Ajlajneri koštaju 259 dinara. Drvo je prilično dobro, pa se olovke lako zarezuju dobrim rezačem. Ako imate neki tup rezač imaćete malo problema, pošto su olovke mekane i kremaste pa će vam se lomiti centar.  

Eyeliners cost 259 RSD. Wood is very good, and these pens are easily sharpened with a  good sharpener. If you have a dull sharpener you'll have a bit of trouble, as these pens are soft and creamy and the center can easily be broken.


Pošto su mekane a dobro pigmentovane, vrlo lako ostavljaju trag na koži, a lako se i razmazuju, ako želite da ih koristite kao bazu za neke senke. Kao baza su mi se vrlo lepo i postojano pokazale. Za donje trepavice su dobre, ali ne i u potpunosti izdržljive preko celog dana. Posle više sati počnem da primećujem da su se malo razmazale, mada ne baš mnogo. Samim tim bih rekla da nisu baš skroz vodootporne ali su ipak vrlo izdržljive. Vrlo se lako skidaju bilo kojim sredstvom za skidanje šminke bez ikakvog trljanja.


Because they are soft and well pigmented, they easily leave a mark on the skin, and it is easy to smudge them if you want to use them as a base for some eye shadows. As a base we they are very good and durable. For lower lashes the are also good, but not completely durable throughout the day. After several hours I started to notice that they are a little smeared, but not that much. Therefore I would say that they are not completely waterproof, but they are still very durable. It is very easy to remove them with any makeup remover without rubbing.


Evo ih i swatch-evi. Crna je klasična, a sivom i braon sam potpuno oduševljena. Sve tri su baš pigmentovane i boja im je na koži ista kao i sam centar olovke. Sve u svemu ja sam veoma zadovoljna ovim olovkama. Da li ste vi probali neki ajlajner iz ove Flormarove linije i naravno kakvi su vaši utisci?

Šta mi se sviđa kod ovih ajlajnera:
- cena,
- izbor nijansi,
- pigmentacija,
- mekane, a lake za zarezvanje,
- lepo se blendaju.

Šta mi se ne sviđa:
- blago se razmažu posle nekog vremena na donjim trepavicama.

Here are the swatches. Black one  is a classic, a gray and brown I just love. All three are very pigmented and colour is the same on the skin, as the center of the pen. All in all, I am very happy with these eyeliners. Have you tried some of these Flormar eyeliners, and of course what are your impressions? 

What I like about this eyeliners: 
- Price, 
- Choice of shades, 
- Pigmentation,
- Soft and easy to sharpen, 
- Blend well. 

What I don't like: 
- They smear after some time on the lower lashes.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat

Rešila sam da je došlo vreme i za ovu recenziju. Mnogo sam želela da probam ovu kremu, ali kada sam to konačno i uradila nisam mogla da definišem utiske, pa sam stalno odlagala recenziju. Sada se osećam spremno da sumiram utiske i to posle dužeg korišćenja ove kreme. Pa da počnemo!


I decided it is time for this review. I've wanted to try this cream, but when I finally did, I couldn't define my impressions, so I kept postponing the review. Now I feel ready to summarize my impressions after a longer period of using this creams. So let's start!


Effaclar mat je dnevna krema iz čuvene LRP Effaclar linije namenjene mešovitoj i problematičnoj koži. Mnogi se kunu u ovu liniju, uključujući i mene, pa sam naravno morala da probam i ovu kremu koja hidrira i matira kožu. Dolazi u kutiji u kojoj je tubica od 40ml. Sama tubica nije sjajna kao ostale iz ove linije već je nekako mat, što je baš simpatično. Ja sam ovu kremu kupila uz Effaclar metalnu kutiju, koja je bila aktuelna pre nekoliko meseci. Redovna cena ove kreme je oko 1740 dinara. Otvor na tubi je mali i doziranje je lako.


Effaclar mat is a day cream from the famous LRP Effaclar line designed for mixed and problematic skin. Many love this line, including me, so of course I had to try this cream that moisturizes and mattifies the skin. It comes in a box and inside is a tube with 40ml of product. Tube itself isn't shiny as the rest of the line but it's kind of matte, which is pretty nice. I bought this cream with Effaclar metal box, which was sold a few months ago. The regular price of this cream is around 1740 RSD. The opening of the tube is a small and dosing is easy.


Sastav kreme nije baš najsjajniji, što je i očekivano od ove kreme. Sadrži alkohol, salicilnu kiselinu, nano čestice koje će upijati višak sebuma i još što šta što bi naravno osetljivoj koži bilo problematično. Naravno krema nije ni namenjena osetljivoj koži. Pogledajte sastav a evo ga i link na CosDNA. Krema je mutne bele boje, gelasta i lagana. Ima onaj blag apotekarski miris kao i ostatak proizvoda iz ove linije.


The composition of the cream is not exactly great, as expected from this type of cream. It contains alcohol, salicylic acid, nano particles that absorb excess sebum and more stuff that could be problematic for sensitive skin. Of course, the cream isn't intended for sensitive skin. Look at the composition and here's the link to CosDNA. The cream is opaque white, gelatinous and light. It has the slight pharmaceutical smell, the same as the rest of the products from this line.

 

Kada se nanese na koži formira veoma lagan film koji se ne oseća, ali se pod prstima i na prvi pogled primećuje. Krema dovoljno hidrira moje mešovite i masnije delove lica. Generalno sam je najčešće nanosila samo na T zonu, a obraze koji su mi normalni sam zaobilazila. Mada i kada sam je nanosila na celo lice nije mi isušila normalne delove kože. U početku mi se učinilo da su mi od nje izašle sitne bubuljice po čelu, međutim nastavila sam sa korišćenjem i shvatila da mi ova krema ipak ne izaziva nikakve probleme. Sa njom zaista sporije prosijam i lice mi i po nekoliko sati duže izgleda lepo i matirano, a prosijavanje se dešava dosta sporije.


When applied to the skin it forms a very thin layer that cannot be felt but it can be noticed under fingers if you look more closely at your skin. The cream moisturizes enough my mixed and oily areas of the face. Generally I used it only on T zone and avoided my cheeks which are normal. Although even when I applied it on my whole face it didn't dry out my normal skin areas. At first I thought that it caused tiny pimples on my forehead, but I continued using it and realized that it wasn't the cause of that problem. My skin becomes shiny really slowly when I use it and my face looks good for a few more hours than without it.


S druge strane ono što mi se nikako nije svidelo je što ova krema nije univerzalno dobra kao prajmer za puder. Sa nekim puderima se lepo složila, ali sa drugima je pak situacija užasna. Puderi sa njom ne beže sa lica i lepo legnu na kožu ali postoji jedan problem, koji je na primer vrlo uočljiv ako nanosim moj trenutno omiljeni Vichy Idealia Teint puder. Effaclar mat, popuni proširene pore oko nosa, ali isto tako kao da se zalepi za pore i masnoću na nosu i kada nanesem puder on se dodatno zalepi za pore i umesto da mi se pore na nosu vide manje dobijem puno belih tačkica koje su sto puta vidljivije nego pre nanošenaj bilo čega. Drugi problem je što se Effaclar Mat lepi za suve delove na licu pa puder ponovo dodatno naglasi te suve delove i koža na tim delovima izgleda užasno. Ja sam ove probleme imala sa nekim mestima gde mi prolaze stare bubuljice.


On the other hand, what I don't like is that this cream isn't universally good as a foundation primer. With some powders it combines well, but with some foundations the situation is terrible. Foundations sit well on the skin if I use it but there is one problem, which is for example very noticeable if I use my current favorite Vichy Idealia Teint powder. Effaclar Mat, filles pores around the nose, but it also sticks to the pores and grease in them so when I apply foundation over it it sticks to the pores and instead pores that are less visible I get a lot of white spots that are a hundred times more visible than before applying anything on my face. Another problem is that Effaclar Mat sticks to dry areas on the face and foundation again further highlight those parts and it looks terrible. I had this problem with some places where I had old pimples.


Moj zaključak je da je ova krema prilično dobra ako ne koristite pudere, ali ako ih koristite moraćete da se kockate. Fino matira ali i naglašava suve delove. Postoji šansa da će vas neki od sastojaka iritirati. Sve u svemu nije loša, ali ako želite da je probate znači da ste u duši kockari. :)

Šta mi se svidelo kod ove kreme:
- pakovanje,
- lepo matira,
- dovoljno hidrira masnije delove kože.

Šta mi se nije svidelo:
- cena,
- ne slaže se dobro sa nekim puderima i tada naglasi mitisere i suve delove.

My conclusion is that this cream is pretty good if you do not use powders, but if you use them you will need to gamble. It mattifies well, but emphasizes dry parts. There is a chance that some of the ingredients will irritate you. All in all, it's not bad, but if you want to try it, it means that you are a gambler at heart. :)

What I like about this cream:

Flormar Deluxe Cashmere Lipstck Stylo DC23

Flormar Deluxe Cashmere Lipstck Stylo je ubedljivo moja omiljena linija ruževa. Stalno kupujem neke nove nijanse iz ove linije i svaki put se oduševim i mnogo volim svaki novi ruž koji kupim. Nijansu DC23 sam morala da kupim nakon što sam je videla u recenzijama.


Flormar Deluxe Cashmere Lipstck Stylo is by far my favorite line of lipsticks. I constantly buy new shades from this line and every time I'm thrilled and I like each new lipstick that I buy. Shade DC23 I had to buy after I saw its reviews.


Ova linija ima ubedljivo najlepše pakovanje od svih Flormar ruževa. Pakovanje sadrži 3g i košta 699 dinara. Inače, radi se o liniji mat ruževa, a formule svih nijansi koje imam, pa i ove, su malo tvrđe, ali nikako suve. Jako su pigmentovani i lepo se razmazuju. Ne uvlače se u borice uopšte i ne lepe se za suve delove, a na usnama su trajni. Imaju neki polumat efekat kada se namažu i ne isušuju mi usne.


This line has by far the best packaging of all Flormar lipsticks. Packaging includes 3g and costs 699 RSD. Otherwise, it is a line of matte lipsticks, and the formula of all shades that I have tried including this one, is a little harder, but not dry at all. They are very pigmented and easy to apply. They are not drawn to fine lines, don't stick to dry parts, and on the lips are quite durable. When applied they have a semi matte finish and don't dry out my lips.


Nijansa DC23 je savršena malinasta nijansa. Vrlo intenzivna boja, a opet mnogo pitomija od čisto crvene.


Tint DC23 is the perfect shade of raspberry. Very intense colour, and yet much gentler than pure red.


Potpuno sam oduševljena i bojom i mazivošću i pigmentacijom ruža. Lako ga nanosim samostalno, bez olovke. Baš se precizno i lako nanosi.


I'm absolutely thrilled with the colour, application and pigmentation of this lipstick. Easy to apply on its own, without the lip liner. It is precise and easy to apply.



Pogledajte sada i swatch, kao i sliku na usnama. Prva slika je nešto između sunca i senke, zatim ide senka i na kraju direktno sunce.


Now look at the swatch and application on the lips. The first image is something between the sun and shade, then comes one in the shadow, and the last one is in direct sunlight.



Ova nijansa je još jednom potvrdila zašto ovoliko volim ovu liniju ruževa. Ima te li vi neku nijasu iz ove linije i kakvi su vaši utisci?

Šta mi se sviđa kod ovog ruža:
- cena nije loša,
- mat završnica,
- ne isušuje usne,
- lako se nanosi i postojan je,
- ujednačeno se briše .

A loše strane su:
- nemam primedbe.

This shade has confirmed once again why I love this line of lipsticks so much. Did you try any shade from this line and what were your impressions?

What I think is good:
- Packaging is nice and solid,
- Not a bad price,
- Matt finish,
- Does not dry out your lips,

Aminogenesis Really, Really Clean Moisturizing Facial Cleanser

Nakon što je Martina Dear Skin ishvalila ovu umivalicu dobila sam ogromnu želju da je probam. Reč je o Aminogenesis Really, Really Clean gelu za umivanje. Inače ako vam ovaj brend možda zvuči nepoznato, nemojte se čuditi, ne može se za sada kupiti u Srbiji u slobodnoj prodaji. Postoji u nekim salonima ali samo za klijente salona (cccc!). No vrlo bitno je da se može poručiti (kao i ostali Aminogenesis proizvodi) iz Hrvatske uz minimalnu doplatu za poštarinu.


When Martina from Dear Skin blog started praising this facial cleanser I got a huge desire to try it. It is Aminogenesis Really, Really Clean Facial Cleanser. If the brand sounds unfamiliar to you, do not be surprised, for now you cannot buy it in Serbia. There are some salons, but they sell it only to their clients (cccc!). It is important that you can order it (as well as other Aminogenesis products) from Croatia with a minimum additional charge for postage.


Naručivanje se vrši preko Aminogenesis sajta ili putem e-maila prodaja@aminogenesis.hr. Inače cena je 24 evra, a poštarina je još oko 2.5 evra. Da da, nije uopšte malo i iskrena da budem prvi put sam izdvojila ovolike pare za gel za umivanje, ali prosto sam jako želela da ga probam. 

Za početak umivalica dolazi u kartonskoj kutiji, a unutra je crna plastična bočica koja ima preko otvora zalepljenu belu traku da se vidi da nije otvarana. Bočica sadrži 177ml. Sama plastika je savitljiva pa se pritiskom na nju izbacuje gel. To s vremenom čini da se papirna nalepnica malo ispresavija, ali to ionako nije mnogo bitno.


Ordering is done through Aminogenesis web site or via e-mail prodaja@aminogenesis.hr. Otherwise the price is 24 euros, and the postage is around 2.5 euros. That it is  cheap at all and to be honest this is the first time I've set aside this much money for facial cleanser but I just really wanted to try it. 

For starters this gel comes in a cardboard box, and inside is a black plastic bottle that has a hole taped over with white tape to be sure that it wasn't opened. The bottle contains 177ml. Plastic itself is flexible and by pressing it gel comes out. This eventually makes the paper labels get all wrinkly, but that's not very important.


Za jedno umivanje potrebno je istisnuti gel u veličini zrna graška. Umivalica je u formi gušćeg gela žućkaste boje, a miriše mi između Koka-Kole i limuna. Ono što je čini veoma različitom od ostalih umivalica je prisustvo mnoštva aminokiselina u njenom sastavu. Aminokiseline su sastavni deo nas i naše kože, one ulaze u sastav kolagena, elastina, lipida i raznih proteina u koži. Takođe bitne su i za zadržavanje i regulaciju količine vlage u koži.  Neke aminokiseline (esencijalne) telo ne može da zameni već moraju da se unose spolja. Zato u procesu starenja počinjemo da gubimo esencijalne aminokiseline, a proizvodnja kolagena i elastina prestaje što se negativno odražava na kožu koja dobija bore i menja pigmentaciju. Aminogenesis proizvodi, pa i ova umivalica sadrže čak 17 aminokiselina koje možete da vidite u sastavu na slici ispod. Ako vas zanima tačno čemu koja aminokiselina služi pogledajte to na ovom linku gde imate spisak.


For each wash it is necessary to squeeze out the gel the size of a pea. Facial cleanser in the form of dense gel of yellowish colour, and smell somewhere between Coca-Cola and lemon. What makes it different from the other facial cleansers is that it contains a lot of amino acids. The amino acids are part of our skin, they are included in the collagen, elastin, various lipids and proteins in the skin. They are also important for retaining and regulating the amount of moisture in the skin. Some amino acids (essential) the body cannot replace when they are gone, so they have to be added form outside. When aging start we begin to lose essential amino acids, and the production of collagen and elastin stops which reflects negatively on the skin, which gets wrinkles and pigmentation changes. Aminogenesis products include 17 amino acids, which you can see in the composition on the picture below. If you want to know exactly which amino acid does what go to this link where you have a list.


Moj utisak o ovoj umivalici je zaista vrlo pozitivan. Fenomenalno čisti kožu bez ikakvog isušivanja. Savršena je za sve tipove kože. Masnoj će odlično ukloniti višak sebuma, a suvu neće isušiti ni malo. S druge strane ne bih preporučila da njom skidate šminku jer nije baš toliko moćna. Doduše mislim da je vrlo moguće s njom i to uraditi ali moraćete ipak malo duže da trljate. Dugo je već koristim (pošto je mala količina potrebna za umivanje ova flašiaca lako može da traje i do pola godine) jer sam želela da lepo formiram mišljenje. I uspela sam da joj nađem jednu manu. Ona je kod mene izražena, što ne mora da znači da će biti i kod vas.


My impression of this gel is really very positive. It cleans the skin awesome without drying. Perfect for all skin types. It will perfectly remove excess sebum on oily skin and won't dry out girls with dry skin. On the other hand I wouldn't recommend it for makeup removal because it is not quite as powerful. However I think it is even possible to do that, but you'll need to rub a bit longer. I've been using it for quite some time now (since the small amount is needed for each wash the bottle will last maybe even up to six months) because I wanted to form a good opinion. I managed to find it one flaw. That is flaw is present in my case, but that doesn't necessarily mean that it will be the same in your case.


Ova umivalica ne pravi penu, već se gel nekako zgusne i proširi pa njim trljate kožu. Veoma lako se ispira vodom, bukvalno ga prve kapi već speru. Ja ga nanosim na vlažno lice. Inače volim da se umivam Sephora četkom i da na taj način radim i blagi piling svako veče. To sa ovom umivalicom nije moguće. Kapi vode koje se nalaze u četki odmah razgrade umivalicu, a pošto još i nema pene ubrzo završim sa licem koje je samo mokro bez ikakvog gela kojim bih se umivala. To je na duže staze rezultiralo da mi se pore polako napune i stvore dodatni zatvoreni mitiseri. Tada sam rešila da se uveče umivam nekim običnim gelom i mojom omiljenom četkom za umivanje, a ovu umivalicu koristim ujutru. I koža mi se ubrzo vratila na staro. Tako da ako slučajno imate masnu i mešovitu kožu i volite da se umivate četkom i vaša koža je na to navikla, postoji mala šansa da ćete imati i vi ovaj problem. U suprotnom ne vidim šta bi moglo da vam smeta. Za kraj evo je i tekstura umivalice da vidite:


This gel doesn't make foam, but it just thickens and then you rub your skin with it. It is easily washed away with water, literally the first drops dissolve it. I apply it to a wet face. I normally like to wash my face with Sephora brush and thus do mild scrub every night. With this gel that's not possible. Drops of water contained in the brush immediately dissolve it, and I quickly end up only with wet brush without any gel. In the long term it resulted in my pores slowly filling up and creation of additional closed blackheads. Then I decided to wash my face at night using some ordinary gel and my favorite brush, and use this gel in the morning. And my skin quickly went beck to normal. So if you happen to have oily and mixed skin and prefer to wash your face with a brush and your skin is used to it, there is a small chance that you will have this problem, too. Otherwise I don't see what else could bother you about this gel. In the end, here's the texture of this gel so you can see it:


Ja sam zadovoljna umivalicom, a svakako imam želju da probam još neke njihove proizvode, posebno okoloočnu kremu Counter Clockwise pošto sam u stalnoj potrazi za nekom dobrom.

Šta mi se sviđa kod ove umivalice:
- pakovanje,
- miris,
- tekstura,
- odlična za sve tipove kože,
- odlično uklanja nečistoće.

Šta mi se ne sviđa:
- dostupnost,
- cena,
- nije moguće umivati se četkom i ovom umivalicom.

L'Oreal The Minerals True Match Mineral Powder Foundation - D4.W4 Golden Natural



Rešila sam da napišem utiske i o mom prvom mineralnom puderu. Dugo sam ovo odlagala i imala sam osećaj da mi mišljenje osciluje, da ga čas volim, čas ne toliko. Ali posle dovoljno dugog perioda mislim da sam sabrala utiske. Kao prvo ovo nije nov proizvod, moguće je da ste već o njemu dosta i čitali ili ga probali, ali za one koji to do sada nisu evo ih i moji utisci. Pakovanje je vrlo zabavno, ali doduše i malo kabasto. U donjem delu plastičnog pakovanja nalazi se puder a gornji deo ima dupli poklopac, jedan na kojem je četkica za nanošenje i drugi koji prekriva i četkicu. Bitno je da je plastika čvrsta, a poklopac se dobro zatvara. 


I decided to write about my impressions about my first mineral foundation. I have delayed this for a long time since I had the feeling that my impressions were oscillating, sometimes I loved it and sometimes not so much. But after a sufficiently long period of time I think I have summed up the impressions. Firstly this is not a new product, and it is possible that you have already read something about it or tried it, but for those who haven't here are my impressions. The packaging is very fun, but admittedly a bit bulky. At the bottom of the plastic packaging is the foundation and the upper part has a double cover, one on which is the brush applicator and another covering the brush. It is important that the plastic is solid, and the cover closes well.


Moja nijansa je D4.W4 ili Golden Natural. Nijanse dostupne kod nas su podeljene u tople obeležene sa W i neutralne sa N. Mislim da u svetu postoji oko 12 nijansi, ali kod nas ih naravno ima mnogo manje. Ono što sam ja uspela da vidim je mozda najviše 6 ako i toliko. Drugi problem je što je vrlo slaba snabdevenost ovim puderima pa često mnoge nijanse i nemaju u prodavnici u koju uđete. Ja sam moj kupila u DM-u jer su tamo srećom imali i testere. Ali i u tom DM-u sa najboljom ponudom broj ovih pudera ipak je bio najblaže rečeno srednje mršav. Platila sam ga 1479 dinara.


My shade is D4.W4 or Golden Natural. The shades available here are divided into warm marked with W and neutral with N. I think that outside of Serbia there are about 12 shades, but that is of course much worse here. What I managed to see is perhaps at most 6 shades if even that many. Another problem is that the supply of these powders is quite bad and often many shades cannot be found. I bought mine in DM because luckily they also had testers. But even in this DM which had the best offer the number of these powders was slim at best. I paid 1479 RSD for it.


Donji deo koji sadrži puder ima zaštitnu foliju koju odlepite a ispod toga su rupice srednje veličine kroz koje možete da izbacite malo proizvoda. Takođe celo pakovanje je u plastičnoj foliji tako da ste sigurni da niko nije otvarao puder pre vas. Četkica je vrlo dobre veličine i oblika. Dobro kupi puder i lako se njim napuni, a lepo ga i nanosi po licu i blenda. Nije baš najmekša, mada iako sam čitala da je neke devojke malo grebuckala, meni zaista ništa kod nje ne smeta. Naravno ako ste kod kuće uvek možete puder nanositi nekom drugom četkicom, a ovu koristiti za popravljanje. Mnogo mi se sviđa što puder ima četkicu, jer većina mineralnih podloga to nema, pa je problem popravljati je u toku dana, bez nošenja opreme. 


The lower part containing powder has a protective film that you peel off and below that are medium sized holes through which you can get to the product. Also the whole packaging has a plastic foil around it so that you are sure that no one opened the powder before you. Brush has a very good size and shape. It picks up product well, it is easy to fill, and it nicely applies it on the face and blends it. It's not the softest out there, but even though I read that for some little girls it was a bit to rough, I really didn't have any problems with it. Of course if you are at home you can always apply it with another powder brush, and use this one for touch ups during the day. I really like that this foundation has this brush, because most mineral foundations don't, so it is a bit problematic to repair your makeup during the day without carrying additional equipment.


Za celo lice zaista je potrebno vrlo malo pudera koji utrljate u četkicu a zatim otresete višak. Mineralne pudere neki nanose kružnim pokretima, neki idu od ivice lica ka unutra opisujući krugove oko lica. Ja se nešto ne udubljujem u to, efekat mi uvek bude isti i vrlo dobar kako god da ga nanosim. Inače je ova nijansa prilično neutralna, nije nešto mnogo topla. Generalno nijanse koje su kod nas dostupne nisu baš drastično različite pa se malo teže bira prava nijansa za vas, ja sam testere mazala sto godina pre izbora. Mada kako su nijanse slične nećete ni s jednom baš mnogo pogrešiti.


For the entire face you really need to pick up very little powder with the brush and then shake off the excess. Mineral foundations are applied with circular motions, or going from the edges of the faces inward, making circles around the face. I don't really think much about this and the effect was always be the same and very good no matter how I applied it. This shade is pretty neutral, not very warm. Generally shades that are available to us aren't drastically different and it is a little harder to select the right shade for you, I tried testers for quite a while before I purchased this one. Although since shades are pretty similar you probably wont make a big mistake no matter what you choose.


Puder sadrži SPF15, ne sadrži konzervanse, ulje, parfem a tvrde i da je nekomedogen. Sastav (ovde) zaista nije loš i nema mnogo nekih problematičnih sastojaka:


Foundation contains SPF15, doesn't contain preservatives, oil, perfume, and they also claim that it's non-comedogenic. Ingredients (here) really aren't so bad and there are not to many problematic ingredients:


Za mineralne pudere često kažu da znaju da budu komedogeni pa se više preporučuju osobama koje nemaju problema sa kožom. S druge strane ovi puderi samo stoje na površini kože, pa bi trebalo da budu manje problematični od tečnih koji se delom i upiju. Dobri su za osobe sa normalnom kožom. Ako imate suvu kožu, ovaj puder će vam nekako naglasiti borice u koži i neće najbolje da stoji, ako imate masnu kožu prosijaćete prilično brzo jer iako je puderast on ne upija višak sebuma toliko dobro. Osobe sa normalnom i blago mešovitom kožom izvući će najbolje iz ovo pudera. Moja koža je mešovita a moja T zona izdrži možda 4 sata a da ne prosija mnogo. Koža izgleda jako lepo i svilenkasto i meko kada se puder nanese. Nije brašnjav na licu ali daje taj mek izgled. Pre nanošenja obavezno nanesite neku hidratantnu kremu.


For mineral powders they often say that they can be comedogenic and they are probably better for people who don't have skin problems. On the other hand they just sit on top of the skin so they probably should be less comedogenic than liquid ones that can be a bit absorbed. They are good for girls with normal skin. If you have dry skin, this foundation will somehow accentuate fine lines in the skin and it is also not the best if you have oily skin. You will get oily pretty quickly, and even though it is a powdery product it doesn't absorb excess sebum that well. People with normal and gently mixed skin will make the best out of this powder. My skin is mixed and my T zone may hold for 4 hours before getting oily with this foundation. The skin looks really nice and silky when the powder is applied. It doesn't look powdery, but gives that soft look.


Ono što jesam primetila je da mi se čini da ako mi dođe period problematične kože, zbog ciklusa, ako nosim ovaj puder on zna malo da pogorša situaciju. Ako mi je lice mirno onda mi puder ne pravi probleme. Pogledajte sada nijansu i teksturu pudera.


What I have noticed is that it seems to me that if my skin is in a problematic period because of my cycle, if I wear this foundation it can exacerbate the situation a bit. If my face is calm, then it doesn't cause any problems. Now look at the shade and texture of this foundation.


A kada ga utrljam u kožu to izgleda od prilike ovako. Vidite da nije brašnjav a daje srednje pokrivanje. Pokrivanje mu je zaista solidno za praškast proizvod. Odlično mi ujednači kožu a nepravilnosti prekrije i bolje od nekih tečnih pudera.


And when I rub it on the skin that looks like this. You see how it's not powdery and provides medium coverage. Coverage is really nice for a powdery product. It evens out the skin and covers imperfections better than some liquid foundation I have tried.


Da li ste vi probali ovaj mineralni puder? Da li uopšte koristite mineralne podloge? Ja sam mislila da probam i Artdeco. Ovim sam solidno zadovoljna. Sve mi se kod njega sviđa osim činjenice da mi se čini blago komedogen ponekad. Ako mi je lice tako raspoloženo.

Šta mi se sviđa kod ovog pudera:
- pakovanje,
- lako se nanosi i četkicom iz pakovanja,
- srednje prekrivanje,
- lepo izgleda na licu.

Šta mi se ne sviđa:
- cena,
- manji izbor nijansi od realnog i loša snabdevenost,
- ne izgleda baš dobro na suvoj i masnoj koži,
- blago komedogen u mom slučaju.
