Ebelin Konjac Sponge - Green Tea


S obzirom koliko su dobili na popularnosti, velika je verovatnoća da ste već čuli za Konjac sunđere za lice. Konjac sunđeri su prirodnog porekla i zapravo se prave od istoimene vrste krompira koji raste u Aziji. Ova biljka ima 97% vode, bogata je mineralima, prirodno je alkalna i ima pH koji savršeno odgovara koži. Konjac sunđeri namenjeni su umivanju svih tipova kože pošto ne sadrže nikakve hemikalije, a kako su potpuno prirodni biorazgradivi, nisu ni štetni za okolinu. Ovi sunđeri prvo su postali popularni u Aziji, ali sada su već hvaljeni širom sveta. Kompanije koje ih prave pored običnog suđera, često prave i specijalizovane vrste, kao što su sa crnim ugljem, belom glinom, đumbirom ili zelenim čajem, koje su zato bolji za neki određeni tip kože.


Considering how popular they are, it is very likely that you have already heard of Konjac face sponge. Konjac sponges are of natural origin and are in fact made from a type of potato with the same name that grows in Asia. This plant has a 97% water, is rich in minerals, naturally alkaline and has a pH that perfectly matches the skin. Konjac sponges are intended for washing all types of skin, as they don't contain any chemicals, and since they are all-natural they are biodegradable and not harmful to the environment. These sponges first became popular in Asia, but now they are loved throughout the world. Companies that make them, next to the ordinary sponges, often make specialized types too, such as ones with charcoal, white clay, ginger or green tea, which are therefore better for some particular skin type.


Ako želite da probate ove sunđere, pored naručivanja iz inostrantsva putem interneta, koje ja volim jer tako možete da uštedite, tu je i kupovina ovih sunđera u Sephora radnjama (890 RSD). Od nedavno tu je i mnogo jeftinija opcija - Ebelin Konjack sunđer sa zelenim čajem, koji se može naći u DM radnjama i to za samo 299 dinara. 


If you want to try these sponges, in addition to web-ordering from abroad, which I love because you can save money, you can also buy these sponges in Sephora stores (890 RSD). Recently a much cheaper option became available - Ebelin Konjack Sponge with green tea, which can be found in DM drugstores for only 299 RSD.


Sundjer kada je suv potpuno je tvrd, ali kada se natopi vodom omekša i uveća se. Ako je sunđer suv trebaće mu par minuta da se potpuno natopi vodom. Sunđer stavite u sud sa mlakom vodom i sačekajte da se natopi. Nakon toga sunđer se iscedi od viška vode i njime se trlja lice. Može se koristiti sa ili bez nekog gela za umivanje. Ja ovaj sunđer uglavnom koristim bez ičega kada se ujutru umivam. Bez velikog pritiskanja, kružnim pokretima, trljam kožu nekoliko minuta. Zatim malo isperem sunđer i ostavim ga da se suši. Sunđeru treba više od celog dana da bi se potpuno osušio, tako da će natapanje sunđera pre umivanja trajati dosta kraće ako ga koristite svaki dan.


Sponge is hard when it is completely dry, but when it collects water it becomes soft and larger. If the sponge is dry it will take a few minutes for it to become completely saturated with water. You should put your sponge in a bowl with warm water and let it soak. After that I squeeze the sponge to remove the excess water, and rub my face with it. It can be used with or without a washing gel. I prefer using the sponge with nothing on it for my morning wash. Without pressing it a lot, I use circular motions to rub the skin for several minutes. Then I wash the sponge a bit and let it dry. Sponge needs more than one day to completely dry so if you use it every day the soaking process before use will be shorter.


Efekat ovog sunđera me je oduševio već posle prvog korišćenja. Prvo, samo umivanje i blaga masaža koje ovaj sunđer pruža su odlični za tonus i prokrvljenost kože, kao i za blagi piling i uklanjanje mrtvih ćelija sa površine kože. Nakon umivanja koža ima neverovatnu teksturu. Zategnuta je i glatka, meka i nema isušivanja. Ovaj Ebelin sunđer je sa dodatkom zelenog čaja, pa je možda i on zaslužan za deo efekata. Najzanimljivije je da su i pore stegnute, a lučenje sebuma u toku dana malo manje. Ovaj sunđer bukvalno oživi i ulepša moju kožu. Rok trajanja mu je oko dva meseca, i to ako ne koristite dodatne gelove za umivanje. Kada mu se oblik promeni i malo se smanji i smežura, vreme je za zamenu. Ja planiram da iz inostranstva naručim razne sunđere sa dodacima i sve ih isprobam. Zaljubljena sam u ovaj sunđer i on je postao moja HG umivalica.


I was amazed by the effects of this sponge after the first use. First, washing and a gentle massage this sponge provides are great for muscle tone and blood circulation, but also it gently exfoliates and removes dead cells from the skin surface. After cleansing, the skin has an incredible texture. Toned and smooth, soft and not dried out. This Ebelin sponge is with the addition of green tea, so this is perhaps a reason for some of these effects. The most interesting is that my pores are tight and sebum secretion during the day is a bit less. This sponge literally revives and beautifies my skin. The shelf life is about two months, if you do not use additional gels for washing. When it deforms a little and reduces in size, it's time for a replacement. I plan to order sponges with various additives and try them all. I'm in love with this sponge, and it became my HG face cleanser.

Olival Zlatno ulje smilja


Danas moram da vam pišem o jednom mnogo lepom proizvodu brenda Olival. Olival verovatno već znate, reč je o prirodnoj kozmetici iz Hrvatske, koju možete pronaći i u našim drogerijama. Većina njihovih proizvoda ima i preko 90% sastojaka prirodnog porekla, a imaju veliki broj prozvoda za lice, kosu, telo itd. Ja sam isprobala sada već čuveno Zlatno ulje smilja za negu kože lice.


Today I have to write about a very beautiful product from Olival. Olival is a brand you probably already know about, it is a natural cosmetics brand from Croatia, which you can find in our stores, too. Most of their products have more than 90% ingredients of natural origin, and they have a large number of products for face, hair, body, etc.. I've tried their famous Golden Immortelle Oil intended for face care.


Ulje dolazi u kartonskoj kutiji u kojoj je lepa staklena bočica sa pipetom. Sadrži 15ml i košta 1059 dinara. Za početak moram da se osvrnem na samu pipetu. Ona je takođe cela staklena i nema pri vrhu gumeni deo koji bi pritiskanjem mogao da povuče ulje u pipetu i nanese ga zatim na lice. Zbog toga pipeta prlikom dodira po koži ispušta vrlo malu količinu ulja i potrebno ju je umočiti ponovo u bočicu više puta za celo lice. Stalno mislim da ja samo ne znam da koristim ovu pipetu, ako je to slučaj...prosvetlite me! U početku mi je ova pipeta smetala, međutim navikla sam se. I pored ovoga doziranje i nanošenje nije problematično.


The oil comes in a cardboard box in which is a beautiful glass bottle with a pipette. It contains 15ml and costs 1059 RSD. For starters I have to talk a bit about this pipette. It is also completely made of glass and there is not rubber top part that can pull oil into the pipette by pressing it and then apply it to the face. Therefore pipette realises just a small amount of oil when you put it on the skin, so you have to repeat this several times for the entire face. I keep thinking that I just do not know how to use this pipette, if that's the case ... enlighten me! At first I was bothered by this pipette, but I'm used to it now. Despite this, dosage and application are not really a problem.


Da pređem na sastav. Ulje je pre svega namenjeno suvoj i osetljivoj koži. Sadrži jojobino, araganovo, maslinovo ulje, ulje nevena, ruže, makadamije, badema, smilja i semenki kajsije. Sastav mu je baš divan. Takođe ima i blag miris koji me podseća na neke manje napadne muške parfeme. Ja ovo ulje, kao i sva ulja koja sam ikada koristila nanosim na vlažnu kožu kako bi se lakše i brže upilo. 


Let's go to the composition. Oil is primarily intended for dry and sensitive skin. It contains jojoba, aragan, olive, calendula, rose, macadamia, almond, immortelle and apricot seed oil. The composition is really amazing. It also has a mild scent that reminds me of some milder men's fragrances. I apply this oil the same as any I have used before, on damp skin, so it is quickly absorbed.


Moja koža nije ni suva ni osetljiva. Mešovita je i dosta se masti. Ipak ulje sam isprobala i u dnevnoj i u noćnoj varijanti. Moram da priznam da čak i kao dnevna nega nije loše. Prilično se brzo upija na vlažnom licu i ne ostavlja mi kožu masnom. Možda baš malo, ali to je slučaj i sa nekim kremama. Nakon njega nisam koristila nikakve kreme niti mi je to bilo potrebno. Kao noćna nega je takođe super. Kožu lepo hrani  neguje i nije izazvalo nikakve probleme na koži. Ipak ako imate masnu kožu preporučujem ga u sklopu noćne nege, dok osobe sa suvljom ili čak normalnom kožom, lako mogu da ga uglave umesto ili pre dnevne kreme.


My skin is neither dry nor sensitive. It is mixed and gets oily a lot. However I tried this oil as part of my day and night skin routine. I must admit that even as a day care it is not bad. It is pretty quickly absorbed on a damp face and doesn't leave my skin greasy. Maybe a little, but that's the case with some creams, too. After this oil I did not use any cream on my skin, nor was it necessary. As night care it is also great. Nicely nourishes and did not cause any problems to my skin. However, if you have oily skin I recommend it as part of a night care, while people with drier or even normal skin, can easily use it instead or before their day cream.


Ulje je izuzetno prijalo mojoj koži. Čak mi se čini da mi se i sebum za nijansu manje luči kada koristim ovo ulje, Ali ovo izjavljujem sa dozom opreza. Pakovanje i miris odišu luksuzom. Prava mala doza svakodnevnog uživanja. Ulje ima sve moje preporuke, koji god tip kože da imate.


The oil extremely soothed my skin. I even noticed a slight sebum reduction when I use this oil, but I'm still saying this with a bit of caution. Packaging and smell exude luxury. It is a true small dose of daily pampering. Oil has all my recommendations, whatever type of skin you have.


Da li ste probali ovo čuveno ulje za lice i kakvi su bili vaši utisci? Da li koristite neke Olival proizvode?

Drogerijski Leave In proizvodi za kosu sa uljima - Swarzkopf Gliss Oil Nutritive & L'Oreal Elseve Extraordnary Oil

Kako mi je kosa ofarbana u prilično svetlu boju, a pored toga je i duga, neizbežno je bilo da mi se kosa isuši i krene da se lakše krza. Leave In proizvodi su obavezan deo nege moje kose i bez njih ne mogu. Ulja su sve popularnija u ovom tipu proizvoda, pa tako ja trenutno koristim čak dva ovakva proizvoda koja sam želela da vam prikažem.


Since my hair is dyed in a rather bright colour, and in addition to that it is also long, it was inevitable for my hair to get dry and start to break. Leave In products are a mandatory part of my hair care, and I cannot be without them. Oils are more and more popular in this type of products, so I'm currently using two products with oils, which I wanted to show you.

1. Swarzkopf Gliss Oil Nutritive Express-Repair-Conditioner


Gliss proizvodi su već svima dobro poznati i ima ih mnogo, za sve tipove i potrebe različite kose. Oil Nutritive sprej sadrži 7 hranljivih ulja i tečni keratin, Prvo na spisku je arganovo ulje, i nalazi se pri vrhu sastojaka. Tu su takođe i ulje šafranike, makadamije, maslinovo, bademovo, šipkovo, i susamovo ulje. Sadrži i pantenol. Može da se nanosi na mokru ili suvu kosu. Nije mi ulepio kosu nikada, čak i kada se nanosi na suvu kosu. Veoma olakšava rasčešljavanje kose. Štiti od krzanja, ali i obnavlja i neguje kosu.


Gliss products are already well known and there are many of them, for all hair types and purposes. Oil Nutritive spray contains 7 nutritious oils and liquid keratin. First on the list is argan oil, located at the top of the ingredient list. There are also safflower oil, macadamia, olive, almond, rosehip, and sesame oil. It also contains panthenol. It can be applied to wet or dry hair. It has never made my hair oily, even when I applied it on dry hair. It makes combing much easier. Protects against breakng, but also regenerates and nourishes hair.


Moram da priznam da me je sastav ovog proizvoda zaista prijatno iznenadio. Porizvod je tečan i nemasan, a lepo i miriše. Kosa je nakon korišćenja ovog proizvoda meka i sjajna i veoma se lako rasčešljava. Ne mogu da kažem da je proizvod obnovio kosu, ali ju je svakako održavao u dobrom stanju. Cena ovog proizvoda je 343 RSD.


I must admit that I love the composition of this product ant it is a really pleasant surprise. The product is liquid and non-oily, and it smells nice. After using this product my hair is soft and shiny and it is very easy to comb. I cannot say that the product renewed my hair, but it certainly maintained it in a good condition. The price of this product is 343 RSD.


2. L'Oreal Elseve Extraordinary Oil 


Ovaj proizvod, za razliku od prethodnog kojeg prskam po celoj kosi, nanosim na krajeve. U sastavu ovog proizvoda nalazi se kokosovo, suncokretovo i sojino ulje, kao i ekstrakti kamilice, lotosa, lana, cveta tiare, šipka.  Po teksturi je gušći i nekako silikonski. Iako je masan na dlanovima, kosu ne zamasti, a ja na krajeve stavim i 3 do 4 pumpice. 


This product, unlike previous one, which I spray all over my hair, I apply to ends. The composition of this includes coconut, sunflower and soybean oil, as well as extracts of chamomile, lotus flower, flax, tiare flower and rose hip. The texture is thicker and somehow silicone-like. Although it is oily on palms, it won't make hair oily, and I usually apply 3 to 4 pumps.


Krajevi mi se jako mrse, ali ovaj proizvod ih maksimalno zagladi i omogućava rasčešljavanje. Samim tim sprečava dalje krzanje. Ipak ako imate vrlo suve krajeve kao i ja, sledeći dan moraćete ponovo da nanesete malo prozvoda. Kada nanosim proizvod na suvu kosu stavim ga dosta manje, i tako izbegnem da se krajevi zamaste. Cena ovog proizvoda je 831 RSD.


My ends get really tangled, but this product smooths them completely and allows combing. So, it prevents further damaging. However, if you have very dry ends like me, the next day you will have to apply a bit more of the product. When applying the product on dry hair I use much less, and avoid greasy ends. Price of this product is 831 RSD.


Pre pranja ako imam vremena kosu namažem kokosovim uljem i neko vreme ostavim da se kosa hrani. Takođe još bolje je ako mogu sa kokosovim uljem da prespavam, a kosu operem ujutru. Tada je kosa vrlo meka i sjajna. Ulja su odlična za nasu kosu. Da li ih vi koristite? Da li ste probali ova dva proizvoda sa odličnim sastavom?

Before washing my hair if I have time I apply coconut oil and leave it in for a while. Also, even better is if you can sleep with coconut oil and wash your hair in the morning. Then the hair is very soft and shiny. Oils are great for our hair. Do you use them? Have you tried these two products with excellent composition?

Maybelline Make It Happen Event


Prošle nedelje prisustvovala sam promociji novih Maybelline proizvoda i nove parole Make It Happen. Više nije aktuelna stara dobra " Možda je rođena s tim, a možda je to Maybelline". Ipak ova nova parola po meni nosi istu poruku. Budite samouverene i jake onakve kakve jeste ili uz malu pomoć Maybelline proizvoda. 


Last weak I attended a promotion of new Maybelline products and parole Make It Happen. The good old "Maybe she's born with it. Maybe it's Maybelline." is now behind us. Yet this new slogan carries the same message, in my opinion. Be confident and strong as you are or with a little help from Maybelline products.


Uz zanimljivu i jaku atmosferu inspirisanu New York-om predstavljeni su nam novi proizvodi, koji u prvi plan stavljaju jak i klasičan stil šminkanja. Izražene jake boje na usnama, crni ajlajner i naglašene trepavice.


With an interesting and strong atmosphere inspired by New York they introduced their new products, which put in the foreground strong and classical make-up style. Bold colours on the lips, black eyeliner and strong lashes.



U drogerijama ste možda primetila nekoliko novih proizvoda, a neki od njih su i tečni mat ruževi, maskara i ajlajner u formi flomastera. Trenutno je i u Lilly i u DM drogerijama sniženje ovih proizvoda, pa ako vas zanimaju sada je pravo vreme da možda nešto od njih i kupite.


You might have noticed a few new Maybelline products in drugstores, and some of them are liquid matte lipsticks, mascara and eyeliner in the form of a marker. Lilly and DM drugstores reduced their prices for these products, so if you are interested in them now is the time to get them.



Puna cena maskare je 889 RSD, ajlajnera 749 RSD, a ruževi su 799 RSD i dolaze u 10 nijansi. Nisam sigurna doduše da li su baš sve dostupne kod nas.


The full price of mascara is 889 RSD, eyeliner 749 RSD, and lipsticks are 799 RSD and they come in 10 shades. I'm not sure that all of them available here, though.


Ova tri proizvoda dobila sam i da isprobam, tako da uskoro možete očekivati i recenzija, a za sad mogu da vam kažem da su mi ovi proizvodi vrlo zanimljivi. Za detaljnije utiske moraće ipak da prođe još malo vremena.


I got these three products to try out, so you can expect reviews soon, but for now I can tell you that they are very interesting. Still, for more impressions a little more time has to pass.


Da li ste primetili nove Maybelline proizvode i da li ste neki od njih možda već isprobali?


Did you notice the new Maybelline products and have you already used some of them?

Kanta Vol. 22


Nova tura potrošenih proizvoda je tu! Ovaj post za mene je veoma poseban. Potrošila sam svoj prvi ceo karmin! A u nastavku saznajte i koji.


New spent products post is here! This post is very special for me. I spent my first whole lipstick! Find out which one in the text below.


- Top Ten Propanthen Protection Winter Sun Cream & Lip Balm - potrošila sam samo kremu dok je balzam za usne, koji se nalazi u poklopcu, još čitav. Odlična hranljiva krema sa SPF-om za zimu. Moja ocena 5/5. Cena kreme je 299 dinara.
- Alterego Passion Colormask nijansa Orange - zanimljiv i jeftin proizvod za obnavljanje boje farbane kose. Super je što dolazi u mnogo nijansi. Narandžasta je vrlo intenzivna. Jedino što je loše je što mi je isušivao kosu i činio je slamastom. Ocena 5/5. Cena 299 dinara.
- Avon Ultra Colour Absolute nijansa Warm Honey - nijansa je braonkasta i blago vidljiva. Nije loš ruž, ali ništa specijalno. Ipak zbog prirodne boje često sam ga koristila. Cena ovih ruževa je 630 dinara. Ocena 4/5.
- Astor Big & Beautiful Lovely Doll Mascara - Solidna maskara za volumen, ali zbog velike četkice čudnog oblika nije mi bila praktična za nanošenje. Moja ocena je 3/5. Cenu ne znam, ali je svakako vrlo jeftina.


- Top Ten Propanthen Protection Winter Sun Cream & Lip Balm - I have just spent the cream and the lip balm, which is located in the lid, is still whole. Excellent nourishing cream with SPF for the winter. My score is 5/5. Price is 299 RSD.
- Alterego Passion Colormask shade Orange  - an interesting and inexpensive product for restoring the colour of treated hair. It is great that it comes in many shades. Orange is very intense. The only thing that's bad is that it dried out my hair and made it a bit like straw. Score 5/5. Price 299 RSD.
- Avon Ultra Colour Absolute shade Warm Honey - shade is brownish and slightly visible. Not a bad lipstick, but nothing special. However, due to the natural colour I often used it. The price of these lipsticks is 630 RSD. Score 4/5.
- Astor Big & Beautiful Lovely Doll Mascara - Quite good volume mascara, but due to the large and strange shaped brush it wasn't very practical for application. My score is 3/5. I do not know its price, but it is certainly very cheap,


- Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler noćna krema - odlična krema koja u toku noći neguje i čini kožu hidriranom. Ocena 4/5. Cena 2514 dinara.
- Eucerin Deodorant - solidan dezodorans. Dobro štiti od neprijatnih mirisa, a sam je bez ikakvog parfema u sebi. Sadrži aluminijum. Blag i ne pecka. Ocena 5/5. Cena 742 dinara.
- Nivea Natural Oil Shower Oil - odlična jeftina varijanta ulja za tuširanje. Potpuno sam se zaljubila u ovaj tip proizvoda. Cena ulja je oko 300 dinara. Moja ocena je 5/5.


- Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler Night Cream - an excellent cream that nourishes and hydrates the skin during the night. Score 4/5. Price 2514 RSD.
- Eucerin Deodorant - nice deodorant. Good protection from odors and I it has no perfume in it. It contains aluminum. Mild and doesn't burn. Score 5/5. The price of 742 RSD.
- Nivea Natural Oil Shower Oil - a great and inexpensive shower oil. I completely fell in love with this type of products. The price of oil is around 300 RSD. My score is 5/5.


- Eucerin AQUApotin ACTIVE okoloočna krema - zanimljiva krema veoma lagane i vodene teksture sa aplikarotom koji hladi. Dobra za svaki dan. Cena kreme je 1475 dinara. Moja ocena je 5/5.
- Lidera dezodorans krema - ova krema zapravo odlično sprečava znojenje. Bolje od većine proizvoda koje sam probala. Maže se na nekoliko dana. Međutim zna da začepi pore i napravi kuglice ispod pazuha što može biti opasno. Meni se jednom malo začepila pora, mada znam i druge koji su imali ovaj problem. Zato je nepotrošenu bacam i od sad ipak zaobilazim u širokom luku. Cenu ne znam, ali je svakako vrlo jeftina. Moja ocena 2/5.
- Lilly krema  za problematičnu kožu - nije loša, posebno kad se uzme u obzir da košta samo 199 dinara. Ipak daleko je od najboljih krema protiv nepravilnosti koje sam probala. Moja ocena 4/5.


- Eucerin Aquaporin ACTIVE Eye Cream - an interesting cream with very light texture and cooling applicator. Good for every day. Price is 1475 RSD. My score is 5/5.
- Lidera Deodorant Cream - this cream actually prevents sweating a lot. Better than most of the products I've tried so far. It should be applied every few days. But it can clog pores and make little balls in the armpits which can be dangerous. It clogged pores to me a bit, but I know others who have had this problem, too. Therefore, even though it is unspent I'm throwing it away, and I will avoid it from now on. I do not know its price, but it is certainly very cheap. My score is 2/5.
- Lilly cream for problematic skin - not bad, especially when you take into account its price of only 199 RSD. Yet it is far from the best anti-irregularities cream that I've tried. My score is 4/5.


- Avon Care Cocoa Butter Rich Cream - odlična i mirišljava multifunkcionalna krema za telo, lice i ruke. Pruža veoma dobru negu, ali nije dovoljno jaka za izrazito suvu kožu. Cena kreme je 550 dinara. Moja ocena 4/5.


- Avon Care Cocoa Butter Rich Cream - an excellent multifunctional and fragrant cream for body, face and hands. It provides very good care, but it's not strong enough for extremely dry skin. Price is 550 RSD. My score 4/5.


To bi bilo to u ovoj turi potrošenih proizvoda. Da li ste koristili neki od ovih proizvoda i kakvi su, naravno, bili vaši utisci?


That would be it for this consumed products post. Have you used any of these products and what were, of course, your impressions?

Nivea CELLular Anti-Age Skin Rejuvenation - Facial Day Care SPF 15


Svi verovatno već znate za Niveinu anti-age liniju proizvoda Nivea CELLular Anti-Age. Danas vam donosim utiske od dnevnoj kremi iz ove linije. Pored nje linija sadrži i noćnu i okoloočnu kremu, kao i serum za lice. Tu su takođe i CELLular Perfect Skin proizvodi koji pored anti-age efekata imaju i funkciju ujednačavanja tena, pošto su blago obojeni. O njima pisala sam ovde.


You probably already know about Nivea anti-age product line Nivea CELLular Anti-Age. Today I'll write about their day cream from this line. In addition to this day cream the line also includes a night and eye cream, as well as face serum. There is also CELLular Perfect Skin product line, which in addition to anti-aging effects has a complexion equalizing function, since these products are slightly tinted. I already wrote about them in this post.


Ova dnevna krema bi trebalo da umanjuje bore, povečava čvrstinu kože i pospešuje njeno obnavljanje. Takođe sadrži i SPF 15 i štiti kožu od sunčevih zraka. Sadrži hijaluronsku kiselinu kratkog lanca, koja može da prodre dublje u kožu, kao i ekstrakt magnolije i kreatin. Dolazi u kartonskoj kutiji u kojoj je plastična teglica od 50ml. Cena ove kreme je 1477 dinara (u najjeftinijoj Srbotrade apoteci).


This day cream is supposed to reduce wrinkles, increase skin firmness and promotes its regeneration. It also contains SPF 15 to protect your skin from the sun's rays. Contains a short-chain hyaluronic acid, which can penetrate deeper into the skin, as well as magnolia extract and creatine. It comes in a cardboard box in which is a plastic jar of 50ml. The price of this cream is 1477 RSD (price in the cheapest Srbotrade pharmacy).


Krema sadrži alkohol, međutim nije mi isušivala kožu. Sadrži i parfem, ali ne sadrži parabene. Evo ga i ceo sastav:


The cream contains alcohol, but it didn't dry out my skin. It also contains perfume, but it does not contain parabens. Here's the whole composition:


Tekstura kreme je zanimljiva. Vrlo je lagana i nemasna. Ima neki gumeni efekat, pa kada se namaže deluje kao da zagladi bore i pore i matira kožu. Ipak ovaj efekat nije na koži toliko vidan, moram priznati. Međutim bitno je da ne masti kožu, ali da dobro hidrira. Mislim da će lako odgovarati svim tipovima kože. Kako moja koža još nema mnogo bora, pa ne mogu ovaj tip krema u potpunosti da testiram, nakon nekog vremena prosledila sam je i mami.


The texture of the cream is interesting. It is very light and non-greasy. It has a rubber effect, and when smeared acts as to smooth wrinkles and pores and mattify the skin. However this effect is not visible on the skin that much, I must admit. However, it is important that it doesn't make the skin oily, but it moisturizes well. I think it will suit all skin types, easily. As my skin is still not that wrinkly, I cannot fully test this type of cream, so after a while I forwarded it to my mom.


Njeni ustisci su slični kao i moji. Iako ima normalnu kožu, ona se lako znoji ispod nekih krema. Ova joj nije pravila problem i na koži je bila prijatna i lagana. Dobro je hidrirala i kožu činila elastičnijom, međutim kako ona kaže efekat je bio prilično prosečan. Popunjavanje i zatezanje bora je bilo blago, a koristila je i kreme koje su ovo bolje radile.


Her impressions are similar to mine. Although she has normal skin, her skin sweats a lot underneath some face creams. She didn't have this problem with this cream, an it was nice and light on the skin. It hydrates the skin well, and makes it more elastic, but she says the effect was pretty average. Filling wrinkles and tightening the skin was mild, and she used creams that did this better.


Po meni ova krema je dobra za sve devojke koje tek kreću sa anti-age kozmetikom. Sadrži hijaluronsku kiselinu koja je dobra za odlaganje prvih bora i koja pomaže da vaša koža ne izgubi vodu. Starije žene sa izraženijim borama, će možda biti manje zadovoljne efektima i trebalo bi da potraže kreme sa malo drugačijom kombinacijom i više anti-age sastojaka. Da li ste probali nešto iz Nivea CELLular linije i kakvi su bili vaši utisci?

I think the cream is good for all girls who are just starting with anti-aging cosmetics. It contains hyaluronic acid, which is good for putting off  first wrinkles and for keeping water in your skin. Older women with more pronounced wrinkles, may be less satisfied with its effects and should look for creams with a slightly different combination and more anti-aging ingredients. Have you tried something from Nivea CELLular line and what were your impressions?

Avon Mega Effects Waterproof Mascara



Iza mene je 400 postova. Prosto ne mogu da verujem da sam toliko pisala za ovih par godina. Ali kako ne planiram da uskoro prestanem da vodim ovaj blog, još mnogo postova tek čeka na svoj red. Danas na redu je recenzija jedne maskare. Avonova Mega Effects maskara je jedinstvena zbog potpuno drugačije četkice, koja nekima odgovara, a nekima ne. Ja sam staru maskaru obožavala (recenzija je ovde). Avon je sada uveo i vodootpornu varijantu ove maskare, koju sam takođe rado probala, jer sam uvek u potrazi za dobrom vodootpornom maskarom.


I have already written 400 posts. I just cannot believe I wrote so much in these past few years. But as I do not plan to stop running this blog any time soon, many more posts are waiting for their turn. Today I'll write about one mascara. Avon Mega Effects Mascara is unique because of the completely different brush, which suits some people, while others don't like it. I adored the old mascara (review is here). Avon has now introduced a waterproof type of this mascara, which I also needed to try because I always look for a good waterproof mascara.


Ova maskara dolazi u istom pakovanju kao i prethodna Mega Effects maskara - kartonskoj kutiji u kojoj je plastično pakovanje od 9ml. Ja sam je platila 549 dinara, međutim puna cena joj je malo viša. Trenutno ne znam kolika je puna cena, jer ove maskare nema u aktuelnom katalogu. Četkica se zapravo nalazi na kratkoj dršci koja ima zglob i može da se nagne u položaj koji vam najviše odgovara. Zupci su gumeni, a veličina četkice je prilično mala, Lako se koristi i na donjim trepavicama. Meni su generalno oči i trepavice mali tako da mnogo volim ovu malu četkicu.


This mascara comes in the same packaging as the previous Mega Effects Mascara - a cardboard box in which is the plastic packaging of 9ml. I paid 549 RSD for it, but the full price is a little higher. At the moment I do not know what is the full price because this mascara is not in the current catalogue. The brush is actually located on a short handle with a hinge and can be tilted to a position that suits you best. The brush spikes are made of rubber, and the size of the brush is fairly small, easy to use even on the lower lashes. My lashes and eyes are generally small, so I love using this little brush.


Formula maskare je retka. U sebi ne sadrži nikakva vlakna ili grudvice za povećanje volumena. Ja bih je svrstala u maskare za produžavanje. U početku maskara je vrlo retka i ima je dosta, pa ako se sa četkice ne skine višak maskare ona će malo slepiti trepavice. Mada kako je maskara retka to se lako može rešiti. Prilično se brzo suši, ali odmah nakon nanošenja može da se ocrta na koži ako kinete, ipak je vrlo retka. Maskara ne uvija i ne podiže trepavice.


Formula is rare. It doesn't contain fibres or lumps to increase the lash volume. I would classify it as a lengthening mascara. In the beginning it is very rare and there is a lot of it, so if you don't remove the excess mascara from the brush it will stick your lashes together a bit. Although as the mascara is rare, so this can easily be solved. Pretty quick drying, but if immediately after application you sneeze it will transfer to your skin. Mascara doesn't curl or lift lashes.


Efekat na trepavicama je prirodan i neupadljiv. Ja volim ovakve maskare, ali ako ste ljubitelji upadljivih trepavica, zaobiđite je. Što se tiče trajnosti i vodootpornosti formula je odlična. Ne mrda nigde ceo dan, ne razliva se niti kruni. Ne spira se ni zbog suza ili kiše, Ipak kada se skida, nije problematična, i lako se rastvara bez krunjenja svim skidačima šminke. Evo ga i sastav:


The effect of the eyelashes is a natural and not too strong. I love this mascara, but if you're a fan of striking lashes, don't buy it. As far as durability and water resistance is concerned, its formula is excellent. It won't move anywhere all day, and it does not run nor crumble. It wont dissolve due due to tears or rain, however when you want to remove it, it's not a problem and it easily dissolves without crumbling with any makeup remover. Here is the composition:


Maskarom sam zadovoljna. Efekat koji daje isti je kao i nevodootporna stara varijanta maskare. Vodootpornost i formula generalno su vrlo dobri. Ova maskara ima sve moje preporuke ako ste osoba koja traži vodootpornu maskaru sa prirodnim efektom na trepavicama. U suprotnom...zaobiđite je.


I'm satisfied with this mascara. The effect that it gives is the same as the old non water resistant version. Water resistance and formulas are generally very good. This mascara has all my recommendations, if you are a person who seeks waterproof mascara with a natural effect on the eyelashes. Otherwise ... bypass it.


Na slici su moje trepavice bez maskare, sa jednim i sa dva sloja. Da li ste probali ovu maskaru? Da li koristite vodootporne maskare? Šta mislite o staroj Mega Effects maskari?
