Noreva Exfoliac Lotion - losion protiv bubuljica


Nedavno sam pisala o Lilly Veoma zdravoj kremi za problematičnu kožu (ovde), a sada sam rešila da pišem o još jednom, doduše malo skupljem, proizvodu protiv bubuljica koji trenutno koristim. Ovaj put reč je o losionu iz Noreva Exfoliac linije proizvoda. Već duže vreme nisam koristila losione, već samo kreme za problematičnu kožu. Ono što me je privuklo je nalepnica na kojoj piše da je za leđa, ramena i dekolte. Ponekad mi na ramenima izađu sitne bubuljice od valjanja na prljavom podu za vreme treninga, a žao mi je da stalno koristim male kreme za lice i na ovom velikom području.


I recently wrote about Lilly Very healthy cream for problematic skin (here), and now I decided to write about another, a little more expensive, product for blemishes which I currently use. This time I'm going to write about a lotion from Noreva Exfoliac product line. For a long time I didn't use lotions, but only creams for problematic skin. What drew me to this lotion was the label that says it is for back, shoulders and chest. Sometimes I have small pimples on my back and shoulders from rolling on the dirty floor during many trainings I have, and I hate constantly using small face creams for this large area.


Noreva Exfoliac losion sadrži visoku koncentraciju AHA kiselina i pomoću njih bi trebalo da uklanja bubuljice na licu, leđima, ramenima i dekolteu. Nanosi se ujutru i uveče na suvu i očišćenu kožu uz pomoć tufera. Sadrži 12.5% AHA kiseline, BHA, cinkovu so, bisabolol. Osnova mu je hidroalkoholna, a sadrži i vlažeće agense. Uostalom evo ga i ceo sastav:


Noreva Exfoliac lotion contains high concentration of AHA acid which should remove pimples on the face, back, shoulders and décolleté. It is applied morning and evening to dry and cleansed skin using cotton pads. It contains 12.5% AHA acid, BHA, zinc salt and bisabolol. Its base is hydroalcoholic, and it contains a moisturizing agents. Anyway here's the whole composition:


Dolazi u kartonskoj kutiji, u kojoj je plastična bočica. Bočica je od čvrste plastike, sa otvorom srednje veličine, kojim se losion lako dozira. Inače sadrži 125ml i košta 2090 dinara, ali ja sam ga ulovila na nekom sniženju u Metropoliten parfimeriji.


It comes in a cardboard box, in which is a plastic bottle. The bottle is made of hard plastic, with opening of medium size, which makes dosing easy. Otherwise it contains 125ml and costs 2090 RSD, but I bought it on a discount in the Metropolitan perfumery.


Losion je providna tečnost, blagog mirisa, koji mene podseća na apoteku i lekove, dakle ništa mirišljavo, ali ne ni neprijatno. Losion sam nanosila ujutru i/ili uveče, prosto po potrebi, kada mi se bubuljice pojave. Primetila sam, prilikom nanošenja na lice, da losion može da peče, i to srednje jako. Ne peče uvek, više kada vam je koža iziritirana ili ste možda cedili bubuljice pa imate negde otvorenu ranicu. Očekivano je zbog alkohola. Međutim pečenje vrlo brzo prestaje. Losion mi nije isušio kožu, niti je uticao na bilo koji negativan način. Čini mi se da bi losion ipak mogao da isuši, posebno ako već imate dehidriranu ili suvu kožu. Ja sam nakon losiona uvek nanosila dnevnu ili noćnu kremu.


The lotion is a clear liquid, with mild scent, which reminds me of the pharmacy and medication, so nothing fragrant, but also not uncomfortable. I applied it in the morning and/or evening, simply when necessary, during my pimple brake outs. I noticed, when applying it to the face, that lotion can sting moderately. It usually burns more when your skin is irritated or you were squeezing pimples so you have small open parts of the skin. It is expected due to alcohol. However stinging stops very quickly. Lotion did not dry out my skin, nor is it affected in any negative way. It seems to me that the lotion could still dry out your skin, especially if you already have dehydrated or dry skin. I have always used a day or night cream after using this lotion.


Namenjen je osobama sa srednjim i jačim problemima sa aknama. Ovo me je u početku malo uplašilo, jer ja imam vrlo slabe probleme, pa sam se plašila da mi losion ne bude nepotrebno jak. Ipak, losion mi je odgovarao i nije delovao jako. Čak naprotiv, moram da priznam da sam više očekivala. Primetila sam da od kad koristim losion bubuljice lakše i brže prolaze. Losion svakako nije sprečio izlazak novih bubuljica, a postojeće ne može da ukloni baš preko noći. Uklanja ih tek za dva do tri dana u najboljem slučaju, i samostalno i u kombinaciji sa još nekom kremom protiv bubuljica.


It is intended for people with middle and strong problems with acne. This made me a little scared at first because I have very small problems, so I was afraid that it would be unnecessarily strong for me. However, lotion suited me and wasn't too strong. On the contrary, I have to admit that I expected more. I have noticed that since I started using the lotion pimples dissapeared easier and faster. The lotion certainly did not prevent new break outs, and the current ones cannot remove overnight. It removes them in two to three days at best, independently or in combination with some other acne cream.


Sumnjam da bi bio veoma delotvoran i brz kod osoba sa velikim problemima sa aknama. Ipak nije loše probati ga, posebno ako imate problema sa kožom leđa i dekoltea, čija je površina velika i nepraktična za svakodnevno mazanje kremama. Nakon dužeg korišćenja koža bi trebalo da bude bolja, a problem sa aknama manji.


I doubt that it would be a very effective and fast for people with major acne problems. Still, it is not bad to try it, especially if you have problems with the skin on your back and neckline, whose surface is large and unpractical for daily cream applications. After prolonged use skin should improve, and the problem with acne become smaller.


Da li ste probali ovaj losion? Da li koristite Noreva Exfoliac proizvode za problematičnu kožu i kakvi su vaši generalni utisci? Ja sam uglavnom imala pozitivna iskustva, mada me ni jedan proizvod nije baš oborio s nogu.

Obnova boje farbane kose za malo para uz Alterego Passion Colormask - Orange


Što volim kad kupim proizvod iz znatiželje, jer ga prvi put vidim, a još je i jeftin, i oduševim se! Posebno retko se oduševljavam proizvodima za kosu, a ovo je jedan baš takav. U DM-u sam nedavno primetila male kesice različitih boja na kojima piše Alterego Passion Colormask. To su zapravo maske za obnovu boje farbane kose i dolaze u nekoliko boja. Postoji čak 15 različitih nijansi, međutim ja sam kod nas videla ja mislim samo 4 ili 5, i to su standardne boje kao što su braon, narandžasta, crna, plava i crvena. Dolaze u kesicama od 50ml sa poklopcem, međutim na netu sam videla da postoje i velika pakovanja u tubama, ali ih kod nas nisam primetila, mada možda ih i ima. Ova mala pakovanja u kesama koštaju samo 299 dinara!


I love when I buy a product out of curiosity, because I see it for the first time and it's inexpensive, but I still end up loving it! It is particularly rare for something like this to happen in case of hair-care products, but this one is such an amazing product. I have recently noticed small bags of different colours in DM drug stores, which say Alterego Passion Colormask. These are actually masks for revival of colour of the colour treated hair and they come in several shades. There are as many as 15 different shades, but I saw only 4 or 5 in DM, and these are standard shades such as brown, orange, black, blond and red. They come in bags of 50ml with a lid, but I saw on the web that there are large tube packagings too, but I didn't notice them here, although they perhaps are available. This small packaging costs just 299 RSD!


Ja sam naravno kupila narandžastu, pošto je to moja trenutna boja kose. Preko leta mi je kosa zbog sunca potpuno poplavela i sada ni jedna farba ne može da mi se zadrži na kosi, već sam uvek na pola meseca poluplava, pa me je obradovalo isprobavanje ovakve maske za obnovu boje, kako bih premostila period do sledećeg farbanja. Ova maska u boji, pored obnove boje, obećava i omekšavanje, smanjenje mršenja i naelektrisavanja, kao i obnovu kose. Što se pakovanja tiče, mnogo mi se sviđa što kesica ima poklopac koji može da se zatvori, tako da ja jednu kesicu i pored toga što imam dugu kosu koristim iz dva puta.


I of course bought the orange one, since it is my current hair colour. Over the summer my hair became completely blond because of the sun, so now none of the hair colours can remain on my hair for the whole month, so half way through I become half-blond. I was really excited to try out this type of colour mask, to somehow bridge the period until the next hair colouring. This colour mask, in addition to colour revival, also promises softening, less tangling and frizz, as well as hair restoring. In case of packaging, I really like the lid that can be closed, so I can use one bag for two applications even though I have long hair.


Način korišćenja maske sličan je kao i kod drugih proizvoda ovog tipa. Nakon pranja i brisanja kose peškirom maska se nanosi na mokru kosu. Nanošenje se radi sa rukavicama, kako ne biste ofarbali ruke. Maska na kosi treba da stoji 3-15 min, u zavisnosti koliku jačinu boje želite da dobijete. Nakon toga maska se ispira vodom i suši se kosa. Sastav maske je:


The way to use this mask is similar to that of other products of this type. After washing and drying your hair with a towel, mask is applied to wet hair. Application is done with gloves to avoid your hands being coloured, too. The mask should stay on your hair for 3-15 minutes, depending on how much of the colour intensity you want to get. After that, the mask is washed off with water and the hair is dried. The composition of the mask is:


Masku sam držala 15 min, a kada sam osušila kosu boja me je potpuno oduševila. Intenzitet boje bio je skoro jednak kao nakon farbanja. Takođe svidelo mi se što boja nije previše drečava. Intenzivna je ali ipak malo zagasita, pa će odgovarati većini devojaka koje se farbaju u ovu boju. Kosa mi je bila meka i lako se rasčešljavala. Međutim, u sledećih nekoliko dana, i tokom sledećih nekoliko pranja kose, primetila sam da mi se kosa malo ukrutila u odnosu na to kakva je bila pre korišćenja maske. Zaključujem da maska dobro obnavlja boju, ali da sama nega kose, možda i nije toliko dobra. 


I kept the mask on my hair for 15 minutes, and when I had dried my hair its colour totally thrilled me. The colour intensity was almost the same as after real hair colouring. Also I liked that the colour was not too bold. It was intensive but a little more dull, so it will suit most girls that colour their hair orange. My hair was soft and easily combed. However, in the next few days, and over the next few hair washings, I noticed that my hair was a bit stiff in comparison to how it was before using this mask. I have to conclude that this mask is great for colour revival, but when it comes to hair-care it is not that good.


Boja se polako ispira sa svakim sledećim pranjem kose, ali moram priznati da je bila vidljiva i do recimo petog pranja kose, tj. skoro dve nedelje. Naravno već posle prvog pranja boja je dosta manje intenzivna, ali nakon toga se sve manje i manje ispira. Dakle jedna kesica može zaista da premosti ceo period između dva farbanja. Dobra strana ove boje je i što se ne ispira prilikom znojenja i blagog kvašenja kose, pa vam odeća i jastučnica neće biti ofarbani.


The colour is slowly rinsed off with each subsequent washing of your hair, but I have to admit that the colour was still visible after let's say the fifth wash, that is. nearly two weeks. Of course, after the first wash the colour is much less intense, but then it washes off less and less every following wash. So really, one bag can bridge the entire period between the two hair colourings. Another good side of this colour is that it doesn't run when you get sweaty and or your hair is dump, so your clothes and pillow cases won't get coloured.


Na slikama ispod možete da vidite efekat na kosi. Na žalost prva slika napravljena je na blago tmurnom vremenu, dok je slika sa obojenom kosom na suncu. I pored toga moram da priznam da su boje kose na obe slike prilično verno ispale, da ne pomislite da mi je kosa pre farbanja bila mnogo više narandžasta nego na slici, možda za nijansu. Budite takođe svesni da je moja kosa skoro plava, i da će efekti biti manje vidljivi na nekoj tamnijoj kosi.


In the pictures below you can see the effect on the hair. Unfortunately, the first picture was taken with a slightly cloudy sky, while the picture with dyed hair is in the sun. Even though, I have to admit that the hair colour in both images turned out quite accurate, so you won't think that my hair before colouring was much more orange than in the picture, perhaps just a bit. Be also aware that my hair is almost blond, so that the colour effects will be less visible when mask is used on a darker hair.



Šta mislite o efektu? Nije li odličan? Da li koristite ovakav tip proizvoda? Ja sam pre koristila Revlon Nutri Color Creme 400 (recenzija ovde), ali ova Alterego maska je možda čak i bolja što se same boje tiče, a drastično je jeftinija. Baš sam oduševljena.

Lilly veoma zdrava krema za problematičnu kožu


Iako je pubertet iza mene već mnogo godina, jednom ili dva puta mesečno imam nalete bubuljica zbog promene hormona u toku ciklusa. Kreme za problematičnu kožu su zato uvek uz mene. Iako je La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo + moja ubedljivo omiljena krema, volim da isprobavam nove. Novim kremama nije lako da se takmiče sa mojom HG kremom, ali ako neka to uspe, znači samo da je zaista fenomenalna. Ovog puta rešila sam da isprobam možda i najjeftiniju kremu koja može da se nađe u Lilly drogerijama, a to je krema iz Lilly linije tj. Veoma zdrava krema za problematičnu kožu.


Although puberty is long behind me, once or twice a month I have pimple bursts due to changes in hormones during my menstrual cycle. That's why creams for problematic skin are always with me. Though La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo + is by far my favourite cream, I like to try new ones. New creams have a really tough job competing with my HG cream, but if one succeeds, it means that it is really phenomenal. This time I decided to try maybe the cheapest cream that can be found in Lilly drug stores, and that is a cream from Lilly product line, ie. Very healthy cream for problematic skin.


Krema dolazi u tubici sa vema sitnim otvorom. Ranije je dolazila u kutijici, ali su pakovanje promenili, što je odlično. Tuba sadrži 15ml i košta samo 199 dinara. Treba je potrošiti u roku od tri meseca nakon otvaranja. Kao što možete da vidite na slici ispod krema ima poprilično mali broj sastojaka. Na bazi je voćnih kiselina, a sadrži i glicerin. Gusta je i bele boje, i malo sporije se razmazuje i upija, mada je moguće razmazati je tako da na koži nemate beli trag.


The cream comes in a tube with a tiny opening. Before it was packed in plastic boxes, but they changed the packaging, which is great. Tube contains 15ml and costs only 199 RSD. It should be used within three months from opening. As you can see in the picture below cream has only a few ingredients. It is based on fruit acids, and contains glycerin. Thick and white, and a little slower to spread and absorb, although it is possible to smear it on the skin, without it leaving a white mark.


Zbog aktivnih sastojaka kao i efekata na koži ne bi trebalo da se nakon nanošenja kreme izlažete suncu. Ja je zato nanosim u sklopu noćne nege, dok u toku dana koristim druge proizvode. Krema ima malo neprijatan miris, podseća me na nešto pokvareno ili sumpor, ali miris nije previše jak i brzo izvetri. Kremu nanosim u tankom sloju, i moja koža je mešovita bez isušenih delova, tako da mi ova krema nije isušila ili iziritirala kožu, mada ako imate osetljivu ili suvu kožu budite pažljivi. Ne mažite je u debelom sloju i hidrirajte kožu.


Because of the active ingredients and the effects on the skin, after application you should avoid direct sunlight. Therefore I apply it as part of my night skin routine, while during the day I use other products. The cream has a slightly unpleasant smell and reminds me of something rotten or sulfur, but the smell is not too strong and quickly evaporates. I apply the cream in a thin layer, and my skin is mixed without dry parts, so this cream didn't dry out or irritate my skin skin, but if you have sensitive or dry skin, be careful. Do not apply it in a thick layer and hydrate the skin well.


Što se tiče efekta i umirivanja bubuljica krema nije loša. Ne može da se poredi sa Effaclar Duom, ali prilično je dobra, posebno ako uzmemo u obzir smešnu cenu. U toku noći krema prilično smiri bubuljice, posebno ako su manje i manje upaljene, a u roku od dva do tri dana ih skroz ukloni. Mojoj sestri takođe poprilično odgovara, a njoj na primer Effaclar ne leži. Tako da je na žalost što se kože tiče uvek bitno isprobati kremu. Mislim da je krema vredna isprobavanja, pošto ako vam odgovara sredićete bubuljie za zaista malo para.


As for the effect and calming of the pimples this cream is not bad. It cannot be compared to Effaclar Duo, but it is quite good, especially considering the ridiculously low price. During the night this cream calms pimples rather well, especially if they are smaller and less inflamed, and within two to three days they are completely removed. My sister also likes it, and Effaclar for example is not good in her case. So unfortunately when it comes to our skin you always have to try the cream. I think this cream is worth trying, because if it suit you, you'll get rid of pimples for really small amount of money.


Da li ste probali ovu kremu i da li vam je odgovarala? Volite li proizvode iz ove Lilly linije? Ova marka polako ima sve veći broj proizvoda koji mi se čine zanimljivi i vredni isprobavanja.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder - 004 Sandstorm


Došao je red da pišem o puderu koji je veoma dugo bio na mojoj wish listi, ali nije dolazio na red da se kupi i isproba. Strpljivo je čekao na red i dočekao - Rimmel Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder. Ovaj puder je veoma hvaljen u blogosferi i možda je i jedan od omiljenih pudera za matiranje drogerijskog ranga. Košta oko 650 dinara i pakovanje ima 14g. Pakovanje je od srednje čvrste plastike, pa treba paziti sa poklopcem da se ne polomi. Takođe nema ni aplikator niti ogledalce, međutim ovo po meni i nisu mane jer uglavnom i ne koristim ove dodatke.


It is time to write about the powder, which has long been on my wish list, but which I didn't buy for a long time. It waited patiently and now it is its turn - Rimmel Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder. This powder is highly praised on many beauty blogs and it is perhaps one of the favorite mattefying drugstore powders. It costs around 650 RSD and packaging has 14g. The packaging is of medium hard plastic, so be careful not to brake it. Also there is no applicator or mirror, but this is not such a bad thing for me, mainly because I usually don't use these applicators from the packaging.


Puder dolazi u 6 nijansi (mada mislim da kod nas ima samo 4), koje su sve poprilično svetle. Postoji i nijansa Transtaprent, koja je prosto po meni najsvetlija nijansa. Moja je 004 Sandstorm, mada moram priznati da se nijanse blago razlikuju i sve su poprilično svetle, pa ne morate previše da brinete oko nijansi. Takođe što se boje tiče prekrivanje je vrlo slabo, tako da i to ide u prilog lakom odabiru nijanse. Proizvod miriše veoma puderasto, mada meni taj miris ne smeta i prilično ga volim. Lako se kupi i najmekšom četkom, ali se ne kruni, niti se olako može uzeti previše proozvoda, pa da lice izgleda brašnjavo.


Powder comes in 6 shades (although I think that there are only 4 available here), which are all quite light. There is also a Transtaprent shade, which is simply the lightest shade from all. Mine is 004 Sandstorm, although I must admit that shades differ only slightly and all are quite light, so you do not have to worry about chosing the right shade. Also when it comes to choosing shade you should know that the coverage is very low, so this also works in favor of choosing the shade easily. The product smells very powdery, but that isn't a problem for me since I like this type of scents. It is easy to pick up even with the softest brush, but it does not crumble, nor can you take too much product, so your face wan't look floury.


Dakle, prekrivanje je slabo, ali puder ipak blago izjednači ten i ne izgleda skoro uopšte brašnjavo na licu, možda tek ako baš preterate. Matiranje je tu ipak najbitnija osobina. Pa kako se ovaj puder pokazao u toj sferi? Moram priznati odlično. Jako lepo matira i ne da puderu ispod da sklizne sa lica. Međutim i sa ovim puderom, popravljanje i ponovno matiranje u toku dana, potrebno je bar još jednom ili dva puta.


So, coverage is low, but it still slightly evens out the complexion without looking floury, maybe only if you put a lot of it. Mattification is still the most important characteristic. So how does this powder mattify? I must admit great. It gives a very nice matte look and holds foundation in place. However, even with this powder, reapplication once or twice a day is necessary to maintain matte appearance.


Nerviralo me je što u većini drogerija nije bilo testera, pa sam sto godina razmišljala pre nego što sam donela odluku koju nijansu da uzmem. Zato vam i napominjem da nijanse kod ovog pudera i nisu toliko pipava stvar i da verovatno nećete promašiti koju god da kupite. Ako nemate porculanski ten i najtamnije nijanse će vam odgovarati. Pogledajte na ruci kako izgleda ovaj puder. Doduše pokušala sam da ga stavim što je više moguće kako biste uopšte videli neke naznake boje. Prilično je svetao zar ne?


It annoyed me that in most drugstores there were no testers, so I needed a lot of time to choose my shade. That's why I want to emphasize that these shades are not that different and you probably won't make a mistake whatever you buy. If you don't have a porcelain complexion even the darkest shades will suit you. Look at my shade on the photo below. I tried to put as much as possible so you can see the colour. It's pretty light, right?


Da li ste i vi ljubitelj ovog pudera kao i većina devojaka? Koji je vaš omiljeni puder za matiranje? Imate li neku preporuku?

Moje omiljene jeftine umivalice - Bioten Skin Moisture


Sredstvo za umivanje nije proizvod za koji izdvajam mnogo novca, niti bih to činila svakodnevno, možda tek ponekad, da malo udovoljim znatiželji. Probala sam dosta umivalica drogerijskog ranga i moram priznati da su mi u poslednje vreme omiljeni gelovi za umivanje Biotenovi. Bioten u svom asortimanu ima dva gela za umivanje: žuti sa dunjom - za normalnu i mešovitu kožu, i rozi sa pamukom za suvu i osetljivu kožu. Oba gela dolaze u tubama od 150ml i koštaju 275 dinara. Bioten proizvodi prave se od prirodnih sastojaka, ne sadrže parabene, parafin, veštačke boje, a ovi gelovi ne sadrže ni sapun, ali sadrže SLS.


Face cleansers are not products for which I give a lot of money, nor would I do so every day, perhaps only occasionally, to indulge my curiosity. I tried a lot of drug-store cleansers and I must admit that my favourite products lately are Bioten cleansers. Bioten has two face gels: yellow with quince - for normal and mixed skin, and pink with cotton for dry and sensitive skin. Both gels come in tubes of 150ml and cost 275 RSD. Bioten products are made from natural ingredients, contain no parabens, parafin, artificial colours, and these gels do not contain any soap, but do contain SLS.


Iako imam mešovitu kožu isprobala sam oba. Moram priznati da mi se oba jednako sviđaju. Divno mirišu, a mirisi osvežavaju i bude. Na koži su vema nežni, lepo pene i nežno čiste kožu, bez izazivanja problema i isušivanja.


Although I have combination skin, I tried them both. I must admit that I like them both the same. They smell wonderful and fragrances make you refreshed and awake. On the skin they are gentle, they foam well and gently clean the skin without causing any problems and dryness.


Rozi gel namenjen suvoj i osetljivoj koži ima nežan miris kreme, bele je boje i na prvi pogled formula podseća na kremu. Nekada je kroz sebe imao i roze kuglice koje se u dodiru sa vodom rastvaraju, međutim formula je sada promenjena i potpuno je bela. Sadrži glicerin, ureu i alantoin koji hidriraju i neguju kožu. Ne isušuje i vrlo je nežan. Doduše, mada moram priznati da mi je sestra rekla da joj je čak i sa ovom umivalicom koža bila malo zategnuta nakon umivanja, dok je imala veoma isušenu kožu. Preporučujem ga i osobama sa normalnom, mešovitom i masnom kožom, zato što zaista lepo uklanja svu masnoću, i ja koja imam masnu kožu zaista nisam mogla da mu nađem manu.


Pink gel for dry and sensitive skin has a delicate cream-like scent, it is white in colour and at first glance the formula resembles a cream. Before it contained little pink balls, which dissolved in contact with water, but the formula is now changed and it is completely white. It contains glycerin, urea and allantoin, which hydrate and nourish the skin. Does not dry the skin out and it's very gentle. Still, I must admit that my sister said that while she had very dehydrated skin, even this cleanser made her skin a bit tight after washing. I recommend it to people with normal, mixed and oily skin too, because it really nicely removes all the excess oil from the skin, and even I who have oily skin really could not find any flaws to this cleanser.


Žuti gel namenjen je normalnoj i mešovitoj koži, miriše sveže, slatko i voćkasto, a miris budi i osvežava. Kao i prethodni gel sadrži glicerin, ureu i alantoin. Malo je ređi i providne boje. Ima malo više sastojaka, međutim oni su na samom dnu liste, tako da se u glavnim sastojcima gel i ne razlikuje mnogo od prethodnog. Preporučila bih ga ponovo svima, osim osobama sa baš suvom kožom, za koje bi rozi bio boli izbor. Ja nisam primetila da mi isušuje kožu uopšte i zaista je jako nežan i blag.


Yellow gel is intended for normal and combination skin, it smells fresh, sweet and fruity, and the scent awakens and refreshes. As with previous gel it contains glycerin, urea and allantoin. It's a little rarer and transparent. There are few more ingredients inside, but they are at the very bottom of the list, so the main ingredients of the gel are not much different from the previous one. I would recommend it again to everyone, except people with very dry skin, for whom the pink one would be a better choice. I didn't notice any drying out of my skin, so this cleanser is also very gentle and mild.

Ova dva gela imaju sve moje preporuke i ako ih do sada niste probali, a tražite jeftine umivalice razmislite da li su baš ovo proizvodi za vas. Da li su neki od vas već koristili ove gelove i naravno kakvi su vaši utisci?

The two gels have all my recommendations, and if you haven't tried them until now, and you are looking for cheap cleansers, consider whether these products might be for you. Have some of you used them before, and of course what were your impressions?

Avon Calming Effects Mattifying Foundation - Cream


Avon Calming Effects je linija pudera koja postoji već duže vreme, a pre nekoliko meseci uvedeni su i novi matirajući pudeti u ovu liniju. Ja sam odmah kupila jedan od pudera, međutim tek sada stižem o njemu i da pišem. Puder dolazi u kartonskoj kutijici, a unutra je staklena bočica sa pumpicom. Bočica ima 30ml i puna cena pudera je 930 dinara, iako su naravno cene često snižene (npr. trenutno je 499 dinara). Matirajući puder dolazi u 5 nijansi, a moja je Cream, koja je jedna od tamnijih nijansi. Mada generalno Avon nema mnogo tamne nijanse.


Avon Calming Effects is a line of foundations which is present for a long time, but a few months ago Avon introduced a new mattifying foundation to this line. I immediately bought one, but I just found time to write about it. Foundation comes in a cardboard box, and inside is a glass bottle with a pump. The bottle has 30ml and the full price is 930 RSDs, although of course the prices are often reduced (eg. currently it is 499 RSD). Mattifying foundation comes in 5 shades, and mine is Cream, which is one of the darker shades. Although generally Avon doesn't have very dark shades.


Prva zamerka koju imam je vezana za pumpicu. Nije losa mada malo deluje klimavo. Pritiskom na pumpicu izlazi premalo pudera, za celo lice ako puder nanosim vrlo lagano treba mi 3 do 4 pritiska pumpice. Formula je srednje gustine i puder je kremast. Zato najviše volim da ga nanosim prstima, mada dobro se slaže i sa sunđerčićima i četkicama. Prekrivanje je srednje, ali se može nadograditi na malo jače. Dakle ujednačiće vam ten i prekriti blaže crvenilo, ali veće nepravilnosti i bubuljice baš i neće.


The first bad thing I have to say is about the pump. It is not that bad though it seems a bit shaky. Pressing the pump extracts too little powder. If I apply it to the whole face in a light way I need 3 to 4 pumps. The formula is medium density and the foundation is creamy. That's why I prefer to apply it with my fingers, but it goes well with sponges and brushes, too. Coverage is medium, but it can be built up to a bit stronger. So it will even out the complexion and cover the milder redness, but major irregularities and pimples it won't.


Ne suši se prebrzo, pa se lako razmazuje, a kada se nanese za oko minut se skroz osuši i prestane da se sjaji. Nakon nanošenja lice nije baš potpuno mat, blago se ipak presijava, pa ja volim da ga setujem i kamenim puderom. Ako se nosi sam lice mi je mat nekoliko sati, ali ako ga setuje kamenim puderom, onda sam mat skoro ceo dan. Recimo da tek posle jedno 7, 8 sati pa i više, posegnem za papirićima za odmašćivanje. Ne mogu da kažem da me je puder oborio s nogu, ali definitivno produžava mat izgled lica za nekoliko sati.


It doesn't dry too quickly and is easy to apply, and when it is applied in about one minute it is completely dry and stops being shiny. After applying it the face is not completely matte, it is is still slightly shiny, so I like setting it with a powder. If I'm wearing it by it self, I am matte a few hours, but if I set it, I am matte the most of the day. Let's say that after a 7, 8 hours or more, I need to reach for mattifying paper. I cannot say that I was blown away by this foundation, but it definitely prolongs the matte appearance of the face for a few hours.


Nijansa Cream je srednje tamna, sa toplim žućkastim tonovima. Avon ima dobru podelu nijansi na one koje su žućkaste kao ova moja, i one koje idu malo više na rozikasto breskvasto. Mada ne bih rekla da te nijanse odgovaraju hladnijem podtonu. Puder dolazi i u vrlo svetloj Nude nijansi, međutim ne postoje baš tamne nijanse. Evo ga sastav:


Shade Cream is a medium dark one, with warm yellow undertones. Avon has a good choice of shades from those that are yellow as this one I bought, and those that are a little more pinkish and peachy. Although I wouldn't say that these shades are good for cooler undertone. Foundation line also has a very bright shade Nude, but it doesn't have truly dark shades. Here it is composition:


Inače mi puder nije izazvao nikakve probleme na koži, ne oksidira i ne menja boju, niti klizi sa lica, kada se nakupi više sebuma. Ne može da izdrži baš ceo dan, poprilično se skine ako vam radni dan traje više od 12 sati kao meni. Lepo i ujednačeno se briše, tako da ne pravi nikakve probleme. Evo ih i swatch-evi za kraj:


Foundation hasn't caused any problems to my skin, doesn't oxidise and does not change the colour or slide off the face, when there is a lot of sebum. It cannot stay on all day, but it gets erased a bit, especially if your work day lasts more than 12 hours as does mine. But it is nicely and evenly erased, so it isn't problematic.  Here are swatches for the end:


Da li ste probali ovaj puder i kakvi su vaši utisci? Ja sam prilično zadovoljna puderom, mada ne mogu da kažem da me je na bilo koji način oduševio. Ali je svakako pristojan i dobar puder za male pare.

Have you tried this foundation and what are your impressions? I am quite pleased with it, although I cannot say that I was blown away in any way. But it's certainly a decent and good budget foundation.
