Bioten Cellufight! Cryo-Scult Gel


Večite muke sa celulitom su prisutne kod većine devojaka. Jeste, celulit je prirodan...i svi smo svesni toga, ali ga i dalje ne volimo i nadamo se da će nam neki proizvod pomoći. Čim dođe leto postovi sa anticelulit kremama su najčitanijina mom blogu. Već duže vreme isprobavam Bioten Cellufight! Cryo-Scult Gel i vreme je da o njemu kažem par reči. Gel dolazi u pakovanju od 200ml i košta 449 dinara.


Cellulite problems are something most girls have. Of course, cellulite is natural and we all now it, but we still don't like it and we hope that some product can help us. As soon as summer comes, posts with anti-cellulite creams are the most popular on my blog. I've been trying out Bioten Cellufight! Crio-Scult Gel for some time and I will now tell you more about what I think of it. Gel comes in a packaging of 200ml and costs 449 RSD.


Gel sadrži guaranu, koja pospešuje mikrocirkulaciju i morske alge, koje pomažu izbacivanje viška vode. Takođe sadrži i vitamin E koji hrani i čini kožu glatkom. Sadrži i ekstrak bele rade koji izbacuje toksine i čisti kožu. Tu su i ekstrakt gorkog đumbira, kao i kofein Proizvođač obećava smanjenje obima regija na koju se nanosi nakon četiri nedelje korišćenja, kao i glatku i zategnutu kožu. Gel je vodenkast i beličaste boje. Ima svež i citrusast miris, a prilikom nanošenja rashlađuje.


The gel contains guarana that promotes micro-circulation and seaweed to help remove excess water. It also contains vitamin E that nourishes and makes the skin smooth. There is also daisy extract, that expels toxins and cleanses the skin. Also, bitter ginger extract, as well as caffeine. The manufacturer promises slimming effect after four weeks of use, as well as smooth and tight skin. Gel is a watery and whitish colour. It has a fresh and citrusy scent and cools when applied.


Gel koristim već duže vreme i nanosim ga na bedra i zadnji deo nogu. Kao prvo moram da naglasim da se obim, naravno, nije smanjio. Nisam to doduše ni očekivala, bez obzira šta proizvođač tvrdi. Celulita takođe nema manje. Koža jeste malo zategnutija i lepša. Ipak ovo nije dovoljno da celulit deluje manje vidljiv. Vrlo standardno ovaj anticelulit gel ne radi nista posebno. Malo će zategnuti kožu, ali dalje od toga ništa... Dakle, ovaj gel, kao i skoro sve ostale, kupujete na svoju odgovornost.


I have been using this gel for a long time. I apply it on the thighs and the back of my legs. First of all, I must emphasize that the volume of the region didn't decreased. I did not expect that to happen anyway, no matter what the manufacturer claims. Cellulite is also not reduced. The skin is a little tighter and more beautiful. Still, this is not enough to make cellulite less visible. As it mostly happens, this anti-cellulite gel does nothing special. It will slightly tighten the skin, but nothing more than that... So this product, like almost every other gel, you buy at your own risk.

Nivea Sun Protect & Refresh - Refreshing Sun Lotion SPF 30


Letnju sezonu sunčanja ove godine počinjem sa Niveinom kremom koja se pojavila prošle godine - Nivea Sun Protect & Refresh. Ova krema dolazi sa tri zaštitna faktora SPF 20, 30 i 50. Pakovana je u bočicu od 200ml. Krema sa SPF 20 košta 1169 dinara, sa SPF 30 - 1285 dinara, a sa SPF 50 - 1405 dinara.


This summer season I'm beginning with Nivea cream, which was launched last year - Nivea Sun Protect & Refresh. This cream comes with three protection factors SPF 20, 30 and 50. It is packed in bottles of 200 ml. Cream with SPF 20 costs 1169 RSD, with SPF 30 - 1285 RSD, and with SPF 50 - 1405 RSD.


Krema je lagana, nemasna i lako se razmazuje i upija. Mnogo me raduje što su kreme za sunčanje sada retke i ne moramo više da ih razmazujemo dugo i na kraju ostanemo beli. Vodenkasta formula rashlađuje dok se maže i vrlo je prijatna. Zaista lepo štiti od sunca i ako je dovoljno često mažete i naravno ne preterujete sa izlaganjem suncu, nećete izgoreti. Ono što posebno obožavam kod ove kreme, iako je mnogo manje bitno, je njen miris. Ima pravi letnji miris i čim je namažem odmah me u mislima prebacuje na more i miris plaže i krema koje mažu ljudi. Divno!


The cream is light, non-greasy and is easy to spread and absorb. I am very happy that sunscreens are now rare and we no longer have to smear them a long time and still stay white. Watery formula is cool while you apply it and it's very pleasant. It protects well from the sun and if  you apply it often and of course don't stay in the sun for too long, you will not burn. What I especially love about this cream, although it is much less important, is its smell. It has a real summer fragrance and as soon as I apply it, it immediately reminds me of seaside and the smell of beaches and summer creams. Wonderful!


Kremu toplo preporučujem, ali ako tek počinjete letnju sezonu ili imate veoma svetlu kožu ipak se opredelite za SPF 50. 


I recommend this cream, but if you're just starting the summer season or have very light skin choose SPF 50.

L'Oreal Elseve Extraordinary Clay - Purifying Shampoo, Conditioner & Clay Mask


L'Oreal je nedavno izbacio novu liniju Elseve proizvoda za kosu, koji su na neki način ipak malo drugačiji od većine proizvoda koje viđamo na policama drogerija. Ova linija proizvoda zove se Extraordinary Clay i namenjena je osobama sa masnom kosom i suvim krajevima. Proizvodi sadrže glinu koja se nalazi u šamponu, balzamu i veoma zanimljivoj glinenoj masci koja se koristi pre pranja kose. 


L'Oreal has recently launched a new line of Elseve hair products, which are in some way a little different from most other products we see on the shelves of drugstores. This product line is called Extraordinary Clay, and is intended for people with greasy roots and dry ends. Products containing clay are shampoo, conditioner and a very interesting pre-shampoo clay mask.


Proizvodi sadrže tri gline koje imaju ulogu da apsorbuju sebum, čiste kosu i kožu glave i izbalansiraju je. Proizvođač tvrdi da će ovi proizvodi temeljno očistiti koren i hidrirati suve krajeve, pružajući vam tri dana čiste i sveže kose. Pa da krenemo redom sa Extraordinary Clay rutinom i proizvodima.


Products include three clays that should absorb sebum, clean the hair and scalp and balance it. The manufacturer claims that these products thoroughly cleanse the hair and hydrate dry ends, giving you three days clean and fresh hair. So let's go on with the Extraordinary Clay routine and products.


1. Clay-to-Mask Pre-Shampoo Treatment


Maska se nanosi na suvo teme pre šamponiranja i ostavi 5 minuta da deluje. Ona tada upija višak sebuma, nakon čega je potrebno isprati je vodom. Izgleda u potpunosti kao glinena maska za lice. Sadrži gline kaoilin, argilu i montmorilonit, maslinovo ulje, ulje lista eukaliptusa, ali i salicilnu kiselinu, koja se kristi kod masne kože upravo za smanjivanje lučenja sebuma i uklanjanje nepravilnosti (ali koja isto tako može da malo isuši kožu).


The mask is applied on dry hair roots prior to shampooing and should be held for 5 minutes. It absorbs excess sebum, and then it should be removed with water. It looks exactly like clay facial mask. It contains kaoilin, argilla and montmorillonite clays, olive oil, eucalyptus leaf oil, and salicylic acid, which is used for oily skin to reduce sebum production and remove irregularities (but which can also dry out the skin a little bit).


Maska dolazi  u pakovanju od 150ml i košta 569 dinara. Svi proizvodi imaju zelenkastu boju i vrlo svež citrusast miris. Primetila sam da nakon nanošenja ove maske teme zaista deluje oslobođeno sebuma i da se kosa malo sporije masti. Ipak deluje mi da sve ovo pomalo isušuje teme, te masku ne koristim pre svakog pranja već možda jednom nedeljno ili ređe.


The mask comes in 150ml packaging and costs 569 RSD. All products have greenish colour and smell very fresh and citrusy. I noticed that after applying this mask scalp really looks sebum free, and the hair becomes greasy slower. Yet it seems to me that all of this can dry out the scalp a bit, so I don't use the mask every time I wash my hair, but perhaps only once a week or even less.



2.  Purifying Shampoo and Conditioner


Šampon ne sadrži silikone što je velika prednost, a sadrži SLS. Kao i maska, sarži sve tri gline i salicilnu kiselinu, ali za razliku od maske koja ubedljivo najviše ima kaolina, ovaj šampon (kao i regenerator) ima manje bele gline tj. kaolina koji upija masnoće, u odnosu na druge dve gline. Nakon šamponiranja kosa deluje veoma čisto, i nije isušena. Deluje po malo suvo pod prstima, ali to je pre svega zbog nepostojanja silikona u sastavu šampona. Šampon se može naći u pakovanjima od 250 ml (363 dinara) i 400 ml (475 dinara).


The shampoo contains no silicones which is a big advantage, but contains SLS. Like the mask, it includes all three clays and salicylic acid, but unlike the mask, which has by far the most kaolin, this shampoo (as well as conditioner) has less white clay i.e. kaolin, which absorbs sebum, compared to the other two clays. After shampooing the hair looks very clean, and it is not dry. It perhaps feels a bit dry under fingertips, but it is primarily due to non existence of silicone in the composition of the shampoo. The shampoo can be found in packagings of 250 ml (363 RSD) and 400 ml (475 RSD).


Regenerator bi trebalo da obnovi i omekša kosu. Sadrži ulje soje, sve tri gline, ali i salicilnu kiselinu. Što se mene tiče, volela bih da sadrži još neko hranljivo ulje. Uspe da omekša kosu i olakša rasčešljavanje, ali neće biti dovoljno jak za izrazito suvu kosu. Naravno, sama obnova vlasi je izostala, ali to je potpuno očekivano. Dolazi u pakovanju od 200 ml i košta 363 dinara.


Conditioner should renew and soften hair. It contains soybean oil, all three clays, and salicylic acid. As for me, I'd like it to contain some more nutritious oils. It can soften hair and make combing easier, but it is not strong enough for extremely dry hair. Of course, the mere regeneration of hair is lacking, but that's to be expected. It comes in packaging of 200 ml and costs 363 RSD.


Što se mene tiče ova linija Elseve proizvoda nije loša i treba joj dati šansu, ako vam se teme kose izrazito masti. Od nje ipak nemojte očekivati negu za suve krajeve i ako imate takav problem, ja bih preporučila da dodate i neku hranljiviju masku u vašu rutinu. Takođe ako imate veoma suvu kosu treba pripaziti da vam ovi proizvodi dodatno ne isuše kosu i da razmslite da ih ne koristite prilikom svakog pranja. U slučaju da imate normalnu kosu i masniju kožu koja luči više sebuma, ovi proizvodi će vam pomoći da kožu malo smirite i da vaša kosa ostane sveža malo duže.

For me this Elseve product line is not bad and should be given a chance, if you have very oily scalp. Still, do not expect it to care for your dry ends. If you have such a problem, I would recommend that you add a nourishing mask in your routine. Also, if you have very dry hair, you should be careful when using these products, so they don't dry out your hair additionally, and think about not using them every time you wash your hair. If you have normal hair and oily skin that is producing more sebum, these products will help the skin to calm down, and your hair to stays fresh a little longer.

Freeman Blackberry Gel Facial Cleanser


Dobar gel za umivanje je prvi korak ka dobroj nezi kože lica. Gel ne treba da isušuje kožu, a treba temeljno i dobro da je očisti. U moru proizvoda svakome je ponekad teško da nađe odgovarajući proizvod za sebe. Zbog moje izrazite ljubavi prema mirišljavim i dobrim Freeman proizvodima rešila sam da probam i Freeman gel za umivanje sa kupinama, Cena ovog gela je 690 dinara i pakovanje sadrži 175ml.


Good facial cleanser is the first step to good face skin care. Gel should not dry out the skin, but still clean the skin well. In the sea of products it is sometimes difficult to find the right product for yourself. Due to my love for nice smelling and good Freeman products, I decided to try Freeman Blackberry Gel Facial Cleanser. It costs 690 RSD and the packaging contains 175ml.


Volim Freeman proizvode zbog njivog sastava. Ovaj gel sadrži ekstrakte kupine, kore vrbe (koja sadrži prirodni oblik salicilne kiseline), banane, kokosa, đumbira, guave, papaje, korena marante, maline, sandalovine, kelp alge, potočarke i drveta kukui. Gel miriše na kupine i vrlo je prijatan i blag za korišćenje. Ne isušuje kožu ni malo i trebalo bi da odgovara svim tipovima kože. Nežno i dobro čisti i ne peče oči.


I love Freeman products because of their great composition. This gel contains extracts of blackberry, willow bark (containing a natural form of salicylic acid), bananas, coconut, ginger, guava, papaya, arrowroot root, raspberry, sandalwood, kelp, watercress and kukui tree. Gel smells of blackberries and it is very mild and gentle to use. It does not dry out the skin and should be suitable for all skin types. Gently and nicely cleanses and does not sting the eyes.


Sastav / Ingredients:
  • Water/Aqua/Eau, Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Rubus Villosus (Blackberry) Fruit Extract, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Musa Sapientum (Banana) Fruit Extract, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Extract, Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Root Extract, Psidium Guajava Fruit Extract, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Extract, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract, Maranta Arundinacea Root Extract, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Fruit Extract, Santalum Album (Sandalwood) Extract, Macrocystis Pyrifera Extract, Nasturtium Officinale Extract, Aleurites Moluccana Extract, Propylene Glycol, Glycerin, Tetrasodium EDTA, Aminomethyl Propanol, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkylacrylate Crosspolymer, Sodium Benzoate, Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylisothiazolinone, Fragrance (Parfum), Red 33 (CI 17200), Violet 2 (CI 60730)


Ovaj gel koristim sa uživanjem i preporučujem ga svima. Imam samo jednu zamerku. Gel je malo ređi, a pakovan je u tipčno Freeman pakovanje, u kom se nalaze sve maske za lice. Ovo pakovanje ima malo veći otvor na dnu, pa je vrlo teško dozirati gel, a da svaki put ne izađe previše. Ja sam gel presula u praznu bočicu sa pumpicom, da bih mogla da ga koristim. Mimo toga, nemam ama baš nikakvu zamerku.

I use this gel with pleasure and I recommend it to everyone. I have only one objection. Gel is a little rare, and the packaging is typically Freeman's, in which all of the masks are packaged. It has a slightly larger hole at the bottom, so it is very difficult to dispense the gel without too much of it coming out every time. I've put my gel in an empty bottle with a pump, so I can use it. Beyond that, I have absolutely no objections.

L'Oreal Nude Magique Cushion - 07 Golden Beige


Imam prilično masnu kožu, i kada kupujem pudere uglavnom su to puderi sa mat završnicom. Puder o kom ću danas pisati nije jedan od njih. Previše sam želela da ga isprobam i nisam odolela iako je reč o puderu sa dewy završnicom. Puder je drugačiji od većine koji kod nas mogu da se kupe i pripada novoj modi tečnih pudera koji se nalaze natopljeni u sunđerčić. Danas vam predstavljam L'Oreal Nude Magique Cushion puder!


I have quite oily skin, and when I buy foundation it is mainly with a matte finish. The one I'll write about today is not one of them. I really wanted to try it out and I couldn't resist buying it even though it is a dewy finish foundation. It is different from most foundation available here and it belongs to the new type of foundations - cushion foundations. Today I show you L'Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation!


Verovatno ste primetili pojavu zanimljivih tečnih pudera koji se više ne nalaze u bočicama već natopljeni u sunđerčić. L'Oreal-ov Nude Magique Cushion puder košta 1599 dinara. Kod nas su dostupne 4 nijanse (3 Vanilla, 4 Rose Vanilla, 6 Rose Beige, 7 Golden Beige) dok u svetu postoji čak 16 nijansi. Nijanse su dobro odabrane za ovo područje, i većina devojaka će naći nijansu za sebe. Ja sam kupila najtamniju nijansu dostupnu, tako da devojke sa baš tamnim tenom neće imati šta da kupe. Sadrži 14.6 g, a ima i zaštitni faktor SPF 29.


You've probably noticed the emergence of interesting liquid foundations which are no longer found in bottles, but instead soaked in the cushions. L'Oreal's Nude Magique Cushion foundation costs 1599 RSD. There are 4 shades available here (3 Vanilla, 4 Rose Vanilla, 6 Rose Beige, 7 Golden Beige), while generally there are as many as 16 shades. Shades are well-selected for this area, and most girls will find suitable shade. I bought the darkest one available, so women with very dark complexion will not be able to find the right shade for themselves. Packaging contains 14.6 g. Foundation even has SPF 29.



Puder dolazi u lepoj i čvrstoj plastičnoj kutijici sa dobrim sunđerčićem za aplikaciju pudera. Kutija ima i ogledalce što je vrlo praktično. Sunđer i blagim pritiskom kupi dovoljno pudera za nanošenje na deo lica. Puder ima vrlo blago prekrivanje, tako da jako lepo ujednači ten, ali ne može da prekrije crvenilo i nepravilnosti. Doduše, boja se može malo nadograditi, recimo do slabijeg srednjeg prekrivanja. Puder je vrlo tečan, lako se razmazuje i brzo suši. Ne oseća se na koži i veoma je lagan i prijatan.


Foundation comes in a nice and solid plastic case with a good sponge applicator. The packaging contains a mirror which is very convenient. Applicator picks up enough product for a part of the face, even with a mild pressure. It has a very light coverage, so it nicely evens out the complexion, but it is unable to cover blemishes and irregularities. However the coverage can be upgraded a bit, for example, to lower medium coverage. Foundation is very liquid, easy to spread and quick drying. I cannot feel it on the skin and  it is very light and pleasant.


Puder je namenjen svim tipovima kože, i ima dewy finiš. Masnokošci će ga zbog toga izbegavati, ali treba imati na umu da i ja kao osoba sa masnom kožom izgledam dobro sa ovim puderom. Koža se ne sjaji previše, a puder sam ne čini sa mi se koža masti više ili brže. Ne lepi se za suve delove i ne naglašava ih, a takođe nije ni oksidirao niti je izmenio boju ili skliznuo sa lica. Takođe, puder nije izazvao nikakve probleme na licu, niti mi zapušio pore i pored solidnog SPF-a.


Foundation is designed for all skin types, and has a dewy finish. People with oily skin will probably avoid it, but it should be borne in mind that I am an oily skin person, and I look good with this foundation. The skin isn't shiny that much, a foundation doesn't make my skin oily more or make sebum production faster. It doesn't stick to dry parts and doesn't emphasize them. Also, it doesn't oxidize or change the color, nor slip off the face. The foundation hasn't made any problems on the skin, nor clogged my pores despite a good SPF.


Pravo je uživanje koristiti ovaj puder. Odličan je za osobe koje ne vole previše da troše vremena na šminkanje i ne žele da se puder na njihovom licu vidi. Žele da izjendače ten, izgledaju sveže i da zaštite lice od sunca. Preporučujem ga svima, čak i masnokošcima, ako mogu da podnesu blag sjaj na licu. Ovakav tip pakovanja ne čini mi se previše higijenski, ali je zato mnogo zabavan za korišćenje!


It is so enjoyable using this foundation. It's great for people who do not like to spend too much time on makeup and do not want their foundation to be visible. They want to even out the complexion, look fresh and protect the face from the sun. I recommend it to everyone, even to people with oily skin, if they can bare the notion of being a bit shiny. This type of packaging does not seem too hygienic, but it's so much fun to use!



Pogledajte na swatch-u kako puder ima lagano prekrivanje i daje malo boje, ali se koža providi kroz sloj pudera. Na licu sam namerno čekala da ulovim nepravilnosti i flekice i onda sam se slikala, kako biste videli da se flekice vide manje, ali su i dalje tu. Sve izgleda prirodno, ali dosta bolje i upeglanije nego bez pudera.


You can see the swatch and how the foundation has a slight coverage and gives a little colour, but you can still see the skin through the layer of foundation. I deliberately waited to catch irregularities and flakes on my skin, and then I took the photo of the applied foundation. As you can see all dark spots are still visible, but less then without the foundation. Everything looks natural, but a lot better and more even.

Intimina Lilly Cup Compact Menstrual Cup


Moja ljubav prema menstrualnim čašicama je nemerljiva. Uvek sa oduševljenjem pišem o njima i volim da s vremena na vreme kupim i isprobam neku novu. Srbija nije zemlja koja ima tu sreću da bilo koju menstrualnu čašicu možete kupiti u slobodnoj prodaji, ali zato je tu internet i putovanja po susednim zemljama. Ovaj put predstaviću švedski brend Intimina i jednu veoma posebnu i drugačiju čašicu Lilly Cup Compact. Ja sam je kupila u Španiji po ceni od oko 35 EUR (39.95 USD je cena na Intimina sajtu). Intimina proizvodi se takođe od nedavno mogu naći u apotekama i DM drogerijama u Hrvatskoj, pa se iskreno nadam da će se pojaviti i u Srbiji,.


My love for menstrual cups is immeasurable. I'm always delighted to write about them and I like to buy and try new ones from time to time. Serbia is not a country that has the good fortune of having any menstrual cups available, but because of the internet and travel to neighboring countries, we can also buy menstrual cups. This time I will present the Swedish brand Intimina and their very special and different cup Lilly Cup Compact. I have bought it in Spain at a price of about 35 EUR (39.95 USD is the price on Intimina web site). Intimina products can also be found in pharmacies and DM drugstores in Croatia, so I sincerely hope that the same will happen in Serbia, too.


Intimina proizvodi dva tipa čašica. Jednu glatku - Lilly Cup, koja je takođe vrlo jedinstvena (saznajte zašto u tekstu kod Maje Zmaje), i drugu - Lilly Cup Compact, koja se zapravo može složiti i odložiti kada se ne koristi u vrlo malu kutijicu, koju dobijate uz čašicu. Kod ovog proizvođača obe čašice proizvode se u dve veličine, gde manju veličinu uglavnom uzimaju mlađe devojke i one koje nisu rađale, a veću devojke koje su rađale ili imaju slabije mišiće donje karlice. Ono što ja želim da istaknem je da su ove čašice malo duže nego kod nekih drugih proizvođača, posebno obična Lilly Cup. Ja sam vrlo plitka tako da običnu nisam mogla ni da razmišljam da probam, ali Compact verzija je kraća i zbog toga sam se za nju odlučila. Na ovom linku možete videti tabelu sa uporednim dimenzijama mnogih menstrualnih čašica.


Intimina produces two types of cups. A smooth one - Lilly Cup, which is also very unique (find out why in the text by Maje Zmaje), and the second one - Lilly Cup Compact, which can actually be folded and stored in a very small box, which comes with a cup. Both types of cups are available in two sizes, where a smaller size is usually for younger girls and those who haven't given birth naturally, and larger ones are for those who give birth or have weaker pelvic muscles. I want to emphasize, that these cups are a little longer than those from some other manufacturers, especially ordinary Lilly Cup. I'm very shallow so I couldn't even think of trying the regular Lilly Cup, but the Compact version is shorter and therefore I decided to get it. You can find size comparisons for many menstrual cups on this link.


Medicinski silikon od kog je čašica napravljena je vrlo lep i prijatan. Uz čašicu dobijate i uputstvo, sa detaljima kako da vašu čašicu koristite i održavate. Na dnu obe vrste čašice postoji mala drška, koju možete skratiti u slučaju da vam čašica stoji nisko i drška vam je predugačka. Pre prvog korišćenja u toku ciklusa čašicu treba otkuvati u ključaloj vodi 5-8 minuta. To se može raditi i na kraju ciklusa pre odlaganja čašice. Ja volim da jednu od ove dve sterilizacije radim sa Corega tabletama za sterilizaciju zubnih proteza. Na ovo sam se navikla još dok sam koristila samo MeLuna menstrualne čašice.


Medical silicone from which the cup is made is very nice and soft. You will also get a small book of instructions, detailing how to use your cup and maintain it. At the bottom of both types of cups there is a small handle, which can be shortened in case your cup stands low and you handle it too long for you. Before first use during the cycle cup should be disinfected in boiling water for 5-8 minutes. This can also be done at the end of the cycle before you store your cups. I like to do one of these two sterilization using Corega tablets for sterilizing dentures. I got used to doing that when I used only MeLuna menstrual cups.


Iako nisam rađala i nemam slabe mišiće donje karlice gledajući dimenzije čašica i poredeći sa čašicama koje sam do tad koristila odlučila sam se za veću čašicu tj. veličinu B, i nisam pogrešila. Lilly Cup compact veličina B je dužine 47.5 mm (58 mm sa drškom) i ima prečnik od 45 mm. Na slici ispod sa leve strane je čašica koju sam do tad najviše volela MeLuna Shorty L, čašica za osobe sa niskm grlićem materice (dužina bez drške 41 mm i prečnik 44 mm). Sa desne strane je MeLuna M Sport (dužina bez drške 48 mm, prečnik 41 mm) koju sam koristila ranije dok još MeLuna nije uvela Shorty opciju. Kao što vidite Lilly Cup Compact Size B je po obimu slična MeLuna veličini L, dok je po dužii slična običnoj MeLuna čašici veličine M. Generalno moj zaključak je da izbor veličine i nije toliko pipav i da ako okvirno ubodete šta je vama potrebno nećete pogrešiti.


Although I haven't given birth, and I don't have weak pelvic muscles, when I compared dimensions of Lilly cups with cups that I used until then, I decided to buy the larger size B, and I didn't make a mistake. Lilly Cup compact size B has a length of 47.5 mm (58 mm including the handle) and has a diameter of 45 mm. In the figure below on the left is my old favorite MeLuna Shorty L, for girls with low cervix (length without the handle is 41 mm and diameter 44 mm). On the right is MeLuna M Sport (length without handle 48 mm, diameter 41 mm) that I used earlier while there was no MeLuna Shorty option. As you can see Lilly Cup Compact Size B is similar in diameter to MeLuna size L, while in length it is similar to ordinary MeLuna cup size M. Overall, my conclusion is that the choice of size is not so touchy, if you prick roughly the size that you need.



Po črvrstini same čašice najbljiža je standardnoj MeLuna čašici (MeLuna ima i tvrđu sport varijantu). Vrlo se lako razvija nakon što se ubaci, ali pošto se lako sklapa malo treba prakse da je postavite, a da se pri guranju na gore bar deo nje ne uvuče. Ipak, to i nije previše problematično i već drugi put kada sam je ubacivala nisam imala problema. Kao i kod ostalih čašica, prilikom prvih nekoliko dana kada ima više krvi, praznim je 3 do 4 puta, a kasnije možda i samo 2 puta u toku dana.  


The hardiness is closest to a standard MeLuna cup (MeLuna also has a harder sport version). It is easily opened after it is inserted, but since it is easy to fold, it can easily collapse a little when you push it up. However, this is not too problematic and the second time I used it, I didn't have such a problem. As with other cups, the first few days when there is more blood I empty it 3 to 4 times, and later perhaps only 2 times a day.


Prezadovoljna sam ovom menstrualnom čašicom. Materijalom, osećajem, lakoćom korišćenja i održavanja. Medicinski silikon je takođe bolji od TPE od kog su napravljene npr. MeLuna čašice, zato što može duže da se otkuvava i samim tim sigurniji ste da je čašica u potpunosti dezinfikovana. Takođe, obožavam i činjenicu da Lilly Cup Compact može da se spakuje i skladišti u malenoj kutiji. Ako još uvek niste prešle na menstrualne čašice, još jednom apelujem da to što pre učinite. Intimina čašice sa za dovoljstvom preporučujem, samo pazite na dimenzije prilikom odabira vaše.

I am very happy with this menstrual cup. Material, feel, ease of use and maintenance are great. Medical silicone is also better than TPE which is used for MeLuna cups, since silicone can be in boiling water longer. This way you are sure that your cup is disinfected well. Also, I love the fact that Lilly Cup Compact can be packed and stored in a small box. If you haven't yet switched to menstrual cups, once again I appeal you to do so as soon as possible. I recommend Intimina cups with pleasure, just watch out when selecting the right size for you.

Tony Moly I'm Real - Tomato Mask & Seaweeds Mask


Čuveni Tony Moly proizvodi došli su pre izvesnog vremena i u Sephora radnje u Srbiji, međutim ja od tad nisam probala ni jedan od njihovih proizvoda. Najviše su me zanimale jeftine Sheet maske, ali na kraju sam ih tek kupila prilikom nedavnog puta u Španiju. Postoji, ja mislim, čak 18 različitih I'm Real Sheet maski, ali naravno različit je broj dostupan u različitim zemljama. Prilikom moje kupovine u Sephori su bile dostupne samo 4, od koji sam ja kupila masku sa paradajzom za lepši ten i masku sa algama koja pročišćava kožu. Platila sam ih po 1.5 EUR. Na žalost u Srbiji koštaju apsurdnih 1080 dinara! Ah Srbijo...zemljo u kojoj je ok da su cene preko 5 puta više. Ipak, ove maske se mogu naručiti i preko neta, a cene im variraju od oko dolara pa do 6 dolara za jednu masku, tako da me i ne čudi cena u našoj zemlji. Obe maske sadrže 21ml proizvoda i jedan sheet, koji se stavlja na lice. 


The famous Tony Moly products are available in Sephora stores in Serbia for some time, but I haven't tried any of their products until now. I was mostly interested in cheap Sheet masks, but in the end I bought them for the first time during a recent trip to Spain. I think that there are 18 different I'm Real Sheet masks, but of course a different number is available in different countries. During my shopping at Sephora there were only 4 available, from which I bought a Tomato Mask for skin radiance and Seaweeds Mask for purifying the skin. I paid 1.5 EUR for each. Unfortunately, in Serbia they cost an absurd 1080 RSD! Ah Serbia ... a country where it is ok to have over 5 times higher prices. However, these masks can be ordered on line, for a price in range from about a dollars up to 6$ for a mask, so the price in our country is not that surprising. Both masks contain 21ml of the product and one sheet.


1. I'm Real Tomato Mask Sheet - Radiance


Ova maska namenjena je svežem i lepom tenu. Sadrži glicerin, pantenol, alantoin, ricinusovo ulje, ekstrakt paradajza, kao i ekstrakte meda, breskve i anisa. Ima odličan sastav, sa puno sastojaka koji kožu hidriraju i omekšavaju. Maske imaju zapravo veoma mnogo tečnosti, pa prilikom nanošenja ja sheet čak malo iscedim da maska nebi curila, s obzirom na to da se na licu drži 20-30 minuta. Nakon uklanjanja maske volim da se umijem vodom, da ipak sperem samu masku. Koža mi je bila vidno hidriranija i mekša nkon korišćenja, zaista je izgledala mnogo bolje. Ova maska će posebno biti dobra osobama sa suvom kožom, kojima treba još više nege.


This mask is intended for skin radiance and nice complexion. It contains glycerin, panthenol, allantoin, castor oil, tomato extract, and extracts of honey, peach and anise. It has great composition, with a lot of ingredients that moisturize and soften the skin. Masks actually contain a lot of liquid. I squeeze out a little bit from the sheet before application, so it won't drip, given that it should remain on the face for 20-30 minutes. After applying the mask, I like to wash my face with water to rinse off the product. My skin was visible hydrated and softer, and it really looked better. This mask will be especially good for people with dry skin who need even more care.



2. Seaweeds Mask Sheet - Skin Purifying


Maska sa algama namenjena je pročišćavanju kože. Sadrži glicerin, pantenol, alantoin, ricinusovo ulje, ekstrakt fukus alge, ekstrakte jabuke i anisa. Kao što vidite mnogi sastojci su slični kao kod prve maske, mada se nalaze u različitim količinama. Ova maska je možda malo manje hidratantna od prethodne, mada je to zaista zanemarljivo. Pošto sadrži i alge koje bi trebalo da pomognu kod nečistoća na koži, možda će više odgovarati masnokošcima. Nakon korišćenja koža deluje jednako hidrirano i lepo kao i kod prethodne maske. Ne mogu da kažem da sam uočila da je koža na neki način pročišćena, ali to nije nešto što se može primetiti nakon jednog korišćenja.


Mask with algae is intended for purifying the skin. It contains glycerin, panthenol, allantoin, castor oil, fucus algae, apple and anise extracts. As you can see, many of the ingredients are similar as in the previous mask, although they are in different quantities, This mask is perhaps a little less moisturizing than the previous one, although this is really negligible. Since it contains seaweed which should help with the impurities of the skin, it may be more appropriate for oily skin. After use my skin was hydrated and the mask worked just as well as the previous one. I cannot say that I have noticed that the skin is purified in some way, but this is not something that can be observed after a single use.


Realno gledano ove dve maske su poprilično slične. Glavni rezultat je da zaista nahrane, omekšaju i hidriraju kožu, pa ona izgleda vidno lepše nakon korišćenja, što su odlični rezultati za ovako jeftine maske, koje pritom imaju i vrlo lep sastav. Preporučujem ih svim tipovima kože i mislim da će svakome odgovarati. Maske me nisu peckale, niti izazvale bilo kakvu neprijatnost. Da li ih je neko možda već probao? Ili neku drugu I'm Real masku, koju bi mi preporučio?

Realistically these two masks are quite similar. The main result is that they really feed, soften and moisturize the skin, so it looks visibly nicer after use. This is an excellent results for such cheap masks, which also have nice composition. I recommend them to all skin types and I think they will suit everyone. Masks didn't sting and burn, nor cause any inconvenience. Has someone perhaps already tried these masks? Or some other I'm Real mask, which they would recommend?
