Deliciously Smelling Products

Friday, 23 January 2015


Ko sem se pred leti začela zanimati za naravno kozmetiko, je imela večina izdelkov, če ne kar vsi, zeliščen vonj. Včasih prijeten, večinoma pa ne najbolj. Zdaj me neprijeten vonj izdelka niti ne moti, sem se že navadila in če izdelek deluje, me vonj sploh! ne moti. Vseeno pa je super, ko ima čudovit vonj. To me je navdihnilo, da sem iz svoje zbirke zbrala nekaj izdelkov s prekrasnimi vonji in jih vključila v današnjo objavo. Vsi izdelki odlično dišijo in obenem tudi dobro delujejo, super kombinacija, kajne? Vsi so seveda tudi iz naravnih in nekateri tudi iz ekološko pridelanih sestavin, niso testirani na živalih, nekaj pa jih je tudi vegan.
Za ljubiteljice citrusov..
Acure Advanced Triple Moisture System Body Lotion, Mandarin Orange - čudovit losjon za telo, ki mojo kožo naredi žametno mehko in gladko. Losjon se hitro vpije v kožo in je zelo vlažilen, in to je prav vse kar iščem pri losjonu. In ja, ima tudi odlične sestavine in krasen vonj po citrusih, po pomaranči in mandarini, tako sveže in yummy! Ocena tukaj.

..in tiste, ki imate raje bolj sladke sadeže.
Andalou Naturals Apricot Probiotic Cleansing Milk - jooooj diši tako dobro!! Sladko in sadno, po breskvah in marelicah, njamii! Krasno čistilno mleko, ki je odlično za jutranje čiščenje obraza, saj na žalost ne odstrani vseh ličil, sploh pa maskare. Čistilno mleko je zelo nežno, kože ne izsuši pa še proti staranju kože deluje. Več tukaj.

Morda pa ste za tople, aromatične, orientalske vonje?
Indigo Wild Zum Rub, Frankincense & Myrrh - <3 Eden izmed tistih izdelkov, ki jih ne moram nehati vohati! Tako kot vse ostale v tej objavi. :) Vonj me takoj spomni in popelje v tople kraje, kot je Maroko ali Bližnji vzhod. Ko ga povoham, me spomni na barvite bazarje in stojnice, na puščave in kamele hihi. :) Prečudovit balm za suho kožo, obnohtno kožico, super je za zdravljenje brazgotin, akne, opekline, res je odličen! Več tukaj.
 Sveže, sveže, sveže!
Silkka Garden Apothecary Grapefruit - Mint Cleansing Balm - tako zelo osvežilen balm z vonjem mete in kančkom grenivke. Obožujem ga za večerno čiščenje obraza. Oljnat balm, ki je super vlažilen in prijeten za uporabo. Pa še zelo luštno embalažo oziroma dizajn ima, zelo kjut. Več tukaj.

Tropska in sladka.
Deep Steep Bubble Bath, Passion Fruit - Guava - nikoli nisem bila največja ljubiteljica močnih, sladkih in tropskih vonjev, a očitno je tale izdelek nekaj posebnega, ker obožujem ta vonj! Ima vesel vonj, ki me popelje na počitnice v tople kraje, in komu to ne bi bilo všeč?! Sicer pa gre za dober izdelek, ki proizvede dosti pene, ki pa na žalost hitro izgine. Kopel je še vseeno super in zagotovo jih bom kupila še več. Več tukaj.

Za vse čokoholike! 
MuLondon Organic White Chocolate Truffle Moisturiser*- tale izdelek diši kot čokolada, kot bela čokolada! Ne razumem, kako sploh namešaš tako krasno mešanico sestavin, da pričaraš tak vonj! Kremo bi najraje kar polizala z obraza! Čudovit izdelek s karitejevim maslom in rastlinskimi olji, ki mojo kožo naredi mehko in nahranjeno. Več tu.

A couple of years ago, when I became interested in natural and organic cosmetics, there were a lot of products with a herbaly scent. At least that was the way in our drugstores and other places with natural brands. Sometimes the scent was nice, but other times not so much. Now I'm really not bothered with the scent of the product, if it works then I really couldn't care less! But, it is still nice when a product smells good. That really inspired me to write this post so I picked a few products with delicious scents that I currently have in my beauty collection. They all smell amazing and at the same time they also work great! Wonderful combination, wouldn't you say?! All are of course made with natural, some also with organic ingredients, they're cruelty free and some even vegan.

For a Citrus lover..
Acure Advanced Triple Moisture System Body Lotion, Mandarin Orange -  a beautiful body lotion that makes my skin velvety soft and smooth. Lotion quickly sinks into the skin and it's super moisturizing, just the way I like it. And yes, it has a lovely citrusy scent of oranges and mandarins, so fresh and yummy! Review here.

..or do you maybe prefer sweeter fruits?
Andalou Naturals Apricot Probiotic Cleansing Milk - aaaah this smells so good!! Sweet and fruity, of peaches and apricots, oh it's just super delicious! Lovely cleansing milk, ideal for morning use, because unfortunately it doesn't remove makeup. It's super gentle, age-defying and it doesn't dry out my skin. More here.

More of a Woodsy and Spicy kinda girl?
Indigo Wild Zum Rub, Frankincense & Myrrh - love it! It's just one of those products that I can't stop smelling! Like every single product in this post. :)  It's a scent that transformes me to a gorgeuos warm place like Morocco or the Midle East. I'm seeing colorful bazaars and deserts and camels hihi. :) Amazing balm for dry skin, cuticles, healing scars, acne, sunburns, oh it's just super lovely! Več tukaj.

Fresh, Fresh, Fresh!
Silkka Garden Apothecary Grapefruit - Mint Cleansing Balm - this one is so refreshing and minty and I love using it as my second cleanser in the evenings! Balmy and moisturizing. And I love the packaging. Just look at that cute little pink flower! More here.

Tropical Holidays.
Deep Steep Bubble Bath, Passion Fruit - Guava - I never thought of myself as being a fan of strong sweet and tropical scents, but I guess this one from Deep Steep is something special because I love it! This is a happy scent, it makes me feel like I'm on holidays and who wouldn't like that?! As for the product goes, it's a nice bubble bath that provides lots of bubbles but unfortunately they disappear quite quickly and faster than I'd like. But the product is still great and I'll definitely buy some more bubble baths from Deep Steep. More here.

For seriuos Chocolate lovers! Or just anyone, really.
MuLondon Organic White Chocolate Truffle Moisturiser* - no joking, this one is like chocolate, white chocolate! I just can't handle the sweet scent of it, I just want to lick it of my face! How do you even get such gorgeous scent?! This is a beautiful balmy moisturiser with Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil, that makes my skin so soft and nourished. And ooh the smell!! :) More here.


What are your favourite deliciously smelling products? Love any of these? :)

Love,
Jana xx

Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Body Lotion

Monday, 19 January 2015


V zadnjem času sem kar nekajkrat pisala o izdelkih Weleda - o kremi za roke tukaj in o olju za telo tukaj. Danes pa vam predstavljam še en odličen izdelek, Regenerativni losjon za nego telesa - Granatno jabolko. Losjon spodbuja obnavljanje celic in deluje antioksidantno in je še posebej primeren za suho in zrelo kožo.
Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Body Lotion for dry mature skin
Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Body Lotion
Krasno dišeč losjon se skriva v plastični embalaži, ki je s svojimi vijugami oblikovana tako, da se lepo prilega v dlan. Embalaža ima priročno pumpico za doziranje, ki pa morda izgleda bolj priročno kot v resnici je. Izdelek je pri uporabi potrebno rahlo nagniti, ker sicer losjon lahko steče po embalaži, in ko ga enkrat nanašaš na telo to ni ravno najbolj priročno. Izdelek mi je na začetku tako ene dvakrat skoraj spolzel iz rok. Seveda se tega takoj navadiš in si malo bolj pazljiv. Na koncu to ni nič groznega, je pa moj prvi vtis o losjonu in sem to le želela omeniti. :) 

Kot že samo ime pove, gre za losjon, ki kljubuje predčasnemu staranju kože. Dragocena sestava iz biološkega olja semen granatnega jabolka, olja mareličnih koščic in karitejevega masla spodbuja obnavljanje kožnih celic in kožo ščiti pred škodljivimi zunanjimi vplivi. Koža postane bolj čvrsta, voljna in žametno gladka. In to nedvomno drži! Losjon kožo res dobro navlaži, jo naredi mehko in gladko. Zaradi lahke teksture je odličen za dnevno uporabo, ker se zelo hitro vpije v kožo in ne pušča mastnih sledi. V zadnjih nekaj mesecih sem preizkusila nekaj novih losjonov a ta me je med vsemi najbolj navdušil. Res je odličen za uporabo pa še prijeten vonj ima, ki ga ne znam najbolje opisati, in bi se zato kar strinjala z opisom na embalaži - čuten ženski vonj navdihuje vse čute.
Weleda Regenerativni Losjon za nego telesa Granatno jabolko, Pomegranate Regenerating Body Lotion
Weledin losjon z granatnim jabolkom me je res navdušil in ga zelo priporočam! Na voljo v različnih drogerijah in trgovinah z zdravo prehrano in naravno kozmetiko. Z veseljem bi preizkusila še druge vonje, a mislim, da bo zaradi dokaj visoke cene (20€), v moji zbirki redkeje kot bi želela.

In the last couple of weeks I've been on Weleda roll. I've talked about their Sea Buckthorn Hand Cream here and about Evening Primrose Body Oil here. I love them both and today's product is right in that alley. Let me introduce you to my current favourite body lotion, the Weleda Pomegranate Regenerating Body Lotion. This lotion promotes cell renewal, it's rich in antioxidants and therefore intented for dry, mature skin.

This lovely smelling lotion comes in quite a sturdy plastic bottle, which is designed to fit nicely into the palm of your hand. The packaing has a nice pump dispenzer, that at the beginning looked a bit nicer and practical then it really is. You have to tilt the lotion a bit when you're using it, otherwise it can run down the bottle and that can be a bit impractical because it can get slippery. When I first used it, it almost slipped out of my hands a few times. Of course that's something you can easily deal with and you're just a bit more careful. I don't even know why I'm telling you this because now I don't have these problems. I guess that was just my first impression and I just wanted to mention it. :) 

So, like the name says, this is a lotion that helps to prevent premature aging of the skin, leaving it smooth and firm. The precious formulation with Organic Pomegranate Seed Oil, Apricot  Kernal Oil and Shea Butter stimulates cell renewal and protects skin from damaging external influences. With a sophisticated fragrance of Neroli and Sandalwood, this all-natural regenerating body lotion reveals youthful skin for beauty that is timeless. Maturing skin gains in firmness leaving it feeling velvety smooth. And this is definitely true! Lotion really moisturizes my skin and leaves it soft and smooth. It has a light consistency which is ideal for daily skin care, it's quickly absorbed and it doesn't leave any greasy film. In the last couple of months I tried a few new body lotions but out of all, this one impressed me the most. It really is super nice and it also has a nice scent, which I fail to describe - maybe inspiring, sensual scent.

I highly recommend this Weleda Body Lotion! I'd love to try all of their scents, but because it can be quite pricey for an everyday body lotion (20€), I'm sad to say that I think this one won't be in my collection at all times.

Have you tried Weleda Body Lotions? Or products from their Pomegranate line? What do you think about them? :)


Much love,

Therapi Honey Skincare Orange Blossom Trio

Friday, 16 January 2015


Therapi Honey Skincare je angleška znamka naravne kozmetike, ki kot glavno sestavino uporablja med. Pred nekaj meseci je Content Beauty & Wellbeing na Instagramu (@contentbeauty) gostil Therapi Honey Skincare nagradno igro in seveda sem sodelovala in na koncu tudi zmagala! Ko sem izvedela, me je skoraj pobralo, še boljše pa je bilo to, da je tudi prijateljica dobila svoje tri izdelke. Najboljša pravila nagradne igre kadarkoli! :) Torej, vsaka si je lahko izbrala eno izmed treh linij in jaz sem izbrala linijo Orange Blossom za normalno kožo oziroma linijo, ki koži vrača ravnovesje in je tako super tudi za mojo mešano kožo. Kot sem omenila, kozmetika temelji na medu, ki je v vseh izdelkih, razen v tonikih. Izdelki vsebujejo tudi sestavine iz ekološke pridelave, niso testirani na živalih, brez parabenov, silikonov, naftnih derivatov, umetnih dišav in barvil. 
Vse tri uporabljam približno en mesec, tako da lahko končno napišem kaj več o mojih izkušnjah. Moj prvi vtis izdelkov je bil, da izgledajo zelo luksuzno in chic, zelo mi je všeč kvalitetna steklena embalaža in njihov logo čebelice.<3 Znamka je izpolnila moja pričakovanja, izdelki so tako čudoviti kot je sama embalaža in zelo rada jih uporabljam. Orange Blossom linija ima nežen vonj po citrusih oziroma pomaranči. Vonj vseh treh izdelkov sicer ni popolnoma enak, a zelo podoben in kar prijeten.
Honey Gel Cleanser - rahlo peneč čistilni gel z ekološko pridelanim medom, izvlečkom juke in oljem iz pomarančnih cvetov. Vlažilni med in izvleček juke kožo nežno očistita in odstranita nečistoče, olje pomarančnih cvetov in eterično olje sivke pa koži vračata ravnovesje. Gel ima bolj redko in tekočo teksturo, ter se skoraj nič ne peni. Včasih se pojavi minimalna pena, včasih pa gel na koži kar izgine. Najprej ga nanesem na dlan, dodam malo vode in nato vmasiram v obraz. Uporabljam ga za jutranje čiščenje kože in za drugo večerno čiščenje, zatem, ko ličila odstranim s kokosovim oljem in mokro brisačko. Všeč mi je, ker se zelo enostavno in takoj spere z vodo, ker je nežen in ker moje kože ne izsuši.
Hydrating Facial Toner - vlažilen tonik z ekološko pridelanim hidrolatom pomarančnih cvetov in izvlečkom ognjiča. Poleg teh dveh glavnih učinkovin tonik vsebuje tudi nepozebnik (witchhazel), rožno vodo, vodo, glicerin, sivko, bergamotko, in tudi alkohol. Alkohola se sicer v izdelkih, sploh za nego obraza, izogibam a pri uporabi sploh nisem opazila, da bi ga vseboval. Tonik je zelo osvežilen in vlažilen, mislim, da je moj najljubši izdelek izmed treh. Poleg nanosa pod kremo, zjutraj in zvečer, ga uporabljam tudi, ko se naličim. Tako se ličila lepše zlijejo s kožo in postanejo tudi bolj obstojna. Krasen izdelek, ki ga res z veseljem uporabljam.
Honey Moisturiser - krema za obraz vsebuje vrsto krasnih sestavin, med glavnimi učinkovinami so ekološko pridelan med, izvleček ognjiča, olje rakitovca in pomarančni cvetovi. Vsebuje tudi rožno vodo, jojobino, kokosovo, konopljino olje, aloe vero in še marsikaj. Krema je čudovita. Je zelo lahke teksture, hitro se vpije v kožo in ne pusti filma oziroma mastnega, sijočega občutka na koži. Krema  je res zelo prijetna in tudi dobro vlažilna, a trenutno vseeno čez nanesem še olje, da je koža pred mrazom in suhim, centralnim ogrevanjem dobro zaščitena. Ker pa sama krema ni mastna in se hitro vpije je več kot odlična za dnevno nego in kot podlaga za puder. Krema je še en odličen Therapi izdelek, in če imate normalno ali mešano kožo vam linijo Orange Blossom zelo priporočam, ne bo vam žal! :)

Therapi Honey Skincare is an English brand of natural and organic products, based on the magical ingredient which goes by the name Honey. A couple of months ago Content Beauty & Wellbeing hosted an Instagram giveaway (@contentbeauty) in which you could get Therapi products and of course I entered and at the end also won! I almost fell of my chair when I saw I won, and the fact that my friend also got a chance to get three products is just amazing! Best giveaway ever! So, my friend chose Rose Otto line, but I chose Orange Blossom trio, balancing for normal skin. As I mentioned earlier, the brand is based on honey and all producs, except for toners, contain it. Therapi products are cruelty free, free from parabens, petrolatum, silicones, artifical fragrances and colourants. I've been using all three for about a month so I can finally give you a review. My first impression was great! Products are super lux and chic, I really like the glass bottles and the little bee is just the cutest! They met my expectation, and the products itself are as gorgeous as is the packaging. I love using them! All three have a fresh and delicate citrusy scent, they kinda smell like oranges. The scent isn't exactly the same in all three, but quite similar and nice.

Honey Gel Cleanser - a lightly foaming gel wash with Organic Honey, Yucca Extract and Orange Blossom. Nourishing Honey and natural extracts of Yucca gently cleanse the face and remove impurities, while the Orange Blossom and Lavender Essential Oil balance the skin. Gel has thin and quite runny consistency, and provides almost no lather. Sometimes it does lather a bit, but other times it just disappears on the skin. When I use it I apply a pump of it in my palm, add a bit of water and then apply to my face. I've been using it for my morning and evening cleanse, not for removing makeup but as a second cleanser. Firstly I remove all of my makeup with some Coconut Oil and remove it off with a warm face cloth. Only then I apply the gel cleanser and my face always feels super refreshed and clean. I really like this gel, it can be so easily removed, just a few splashes of water and it's done. It doesn't leave any residue, it's super gentle and it doesn't irritate or dry out my skin.

Hydrating Facial Toner - an instantly hydrating facial tonic with Organic Orange Blossom Hydrolat and Calendula Extract. Toner also includes ingredients like Witchhazel, Rose Flower, Aqua, Glycerin, Lavender, Bergamot, and also Alcohol. I usually tend to stay away from products containing Alcohol, especially in skin care products, but in this product I didn't even notice it. Toner is super refreshing and hydrating, it's not drying, and I think it's my fave out of the three. I use it in the morning and evenings, after washing my face with Honey Gel Cleanser, and before applying Honey Moisturiser. But I also spritz it on after I do my makeup for better staying power and because the skin just looks nicer. Beautiful product, I love it!

Honey Moisturiser - an easily absorbed, perfectly textured skin nectar with moisturizing Organic Honey, soothing Calendula, vitamin-rich Sea Buckthorn Oil and balancing botanical extract of Orange Fruit and Blossom. This lovely cream or skin nectar also includes Rose Water, Jojoba, Coconut and Hemp Oil, Aloe Vera and so on. I love it! It has such a light consistency, it quickly sinks into the skin and doesn't leave any greasy or sticky residue. This gorgeous cream is moisturizing but not oily so it's perfect as a day cream and as a base for makeup. At the moment I've been using it with an oil so my skin is even more protected from cold and dry air, but you could use it on its own, especially in the warmer months. This cream is another gorgeous product from Therapi and if you have a normal or combination skin like myself, I would say give this Orange Blossom line a go, you won't regret it!


Have you tried Therapi Honey Skincare? :)

Leahlani Skincare Mermaid Mask

Tuesday, 13 January 2015


Masko za obraz čudovite havajske znamke Leahlani Skincare sem že omenjala na blogu. Če ste le sodelovale v nagradni igri, potem veste o kateri maski govorim, sicer pa sem o njej pisala tudi tukaj. Ročno narejena maska je ena izmed mojih "holy grail" izdelkov, kar prikazuje tudi tale slika iz Instagrama in tako zelo mi je všeč, da si res zasluži svojo objavo.
Leahlani Skincare Mermaid Mask Superfood for your skin
Leahlani Skincare Mermaid Mask
Mermaid Mask ima kot prvo, krasno ime, kot drugo, krasne sestavine in kot tretje, krasen vonj! Mene popolnoma nič ne moti, da se lahko enkrat na teden za 15 minut pretvarjam, da sem morska deklica. Sploh pa se skoraj počutim kot ena, ko imam masko na obrazu in se obenem namakam v banji. :) Poleg samega imena pa je dodatna super stvar napis, da gre za superhrano za kožo. Ja, prosim! Glavna sestavina maske je havajski surovi in ekološko pridelan med, sploh ne bom omenjala moje ljubezni do medu, spet! V medu se skriva vrsto čudovitih sestavin, kot so zdravilne alge - spirulina in klorela, rakitovec - čarobni oranžni plod, ki kožo intenzivno obnavlja. Vsebuje tudi zeleno in kaolin glino, čebelji vosek, sivko, kamilico, ylang ylang, vrtnico. Maska vsebuje odlične sestavine in ima zelo prijeten, sladko-cvetličen vonj. Poleg tega pa je tudi zelo okusna! Ja, tudi preizkusila sem je malo, nisem si mogla pomagati. :)
Leahlani Skincare Mermaid Mask
Leahlani Skincare Mermaid Mask
Masko najraje uporabljam enkrat na teden in moj najljubši način je, da na očiščen obraz najprej nanesem tonik. Obraz dobro navlažim z njim in nato na še moker obraz nanesem masko. Nežno jo vmasiram v kožo, tako se stimulira prekrvavitev kože in zdravilne učinkovine lažje prodrejo v kožo. Za ta način sem izvedela od Leah, pojdite ji prosim sledit na Instagram, vedno objavlja super fotke, še bolj všeč pa so mi njeni nasveti.<3 Maska se na tak način tudi odlično razmaže in še manj se je porabi. Na obrazu jo pustim 15 minut in nato sperem z mlačno vodo. Koža je po uporabi mehka in gladka. Pravzaprav koža kar malo sije, sploh zjutraj. Zelo pomaga tudi pri negi in zmanjševanju mozoljev, še posebej če masko nanesem le na mozolje in pustim čez noč. A to ne pride v poštev pri beli posteljnini, bi bila preveč zelena zjutraj. :) 

Skratka, maska je več kot odlična in zelo jo priporočam!<3 Kupite jo lahko tukaj, poštnina je trenutno 13€ (včasih je bila 20$), a meni je Leah na srečo na paket napisala manjšo vrednost izdelkov, da plačevanje davka carini ni bilo potrebno. :) Maska je primerna za vse tipe kože in če le niste alergične na med ali vegan, vam jo res toplo priporočam.

I've already written about this gorgeous mask from the Hawaiian brand Leahlani Skincare. If you entered my giveaway then you know what I'm talking about, and I also mentioned it here, in this post. The Mermaid Mask! As you can see on my Instagram, this handmade mask is one of my holy grails products (click here), so naturally it deserves its own blog post.

 Mermaid mask has a great name, great ingredients and great scent! I really, really don't mind being a mermaid once a week for 15 minutes! I especially feel like one if I apply it and then sink into a warm bath. :) Besides the name I also love that it's actually superfood for your skin. Oh yes please! The main ingredient is Hawaiian raw organic honey, and I won't even go into my beloved honey, again! Mask also contains spirulina and chlorella, sea buckthorn fruit, magical orange fruit, which is known for its healing and rejuvenating effects on the skin, kaolin and green clay, beeswax, chamomile, lavender, ylang ylang, rose. Beautiful ingredients that create a wonderful sweet and floral scent. And it also tastes delicious, khm khm. Yes, I just had to taste it, I couldn't resist myself!

I love using it once a week and my favourite way is misting my face with a toner and then gently massage some mask into my face. I learned that from Leah, you should definitely follow her on Instagram, she always posts beautiful pics and loves to share her knowledge with us!<3 I quote: "Spend about 30 seconds gently massaging your skin, this will 'melt' the mask into your skin, stimulate circulation and help activate the nutrients to work their magic."  I leave it on for 15 minutes and then rinse off with lukewarm water. It leaves my skin so soft and smooth, but the real effects are shown in the morning. My skin looks raidant and healthy, I love it. And it also works great as a spot treatment, especially if I put a bit of mask on my spots and leave it on overnight. It really reduces them and they heal quicker. Sure, you'll look like a green spotty monster but it's worth it. Just don't do that if you have white sheets, they won't be so white in the morning, if you know what I mean. :)

I'm clearly obsessed with the Mermaid mask and I highly recommend it!<3 You can buy it here. I would say it's suitable for all skin types and if you aren't allergic to honey or vegan, then you really need this baby in your life.


With love,
Jana xx

Three to do in 2015

Wednesday, 7 January 2015


Danes imam za vas tri izdelke oziroma navade, ki vam jih v novem letu zelo priporočam. Vse uporabljam že dolgo, o njih sem tudi že pisala, a sem se odločila, da jih ponovno omenim v tej objavi. Verjamem, da je katera že preizkusila te tri izdelke, če ne pa upam, da jih boste, ker vam bodo spremenile življenje. Vsaj meni so ga. :) Izdelki so tudi zelo dostopni in cenovno ugodni, kar je vedno ogromen plus.
Med za kožo - mislim, da je popolnoma nesmiselno, da spet bluzim o medu, če sem mu pa posvetila objavo.<3 Neverjetno učinkuje na mojo kožo, izredno jo navlaži in pri redni uporabi tudi zmanjša število in nastanek mozoljev. Pa saj se neprestano ponavljam, ampak če je pa res tako odličen! Med torej lahko uporabite samostojno, nanesite na obraz in pustite od 15 minut pa do ene ure, kolikor časa želite. Lahko ga uporabite za jutranje čiščenje obraza, sploh, če imate problematično, mastno kožo ali pa zelo suho. Medu pa lahko primešate še kakšno superhrano, na primer kakav, zeleni čaj, kurkumo ali ovsene kosmiče.

Suho krtačenje kože za telo - enako kot medu, sem tudi suhemu krtačenju posvetila celo objavo. Krtačenje telesa deluje blagodejno na naše zdravje, spodbuja krvni obtok in limfni sistem, ki je del imunskega sistema, poleg tega pa še odlično odstrani odmrle celice. S postopkom stimuliramo in očistimo limfni sistem, limfno tekočino pa tako spodbudimo, da odnaša odpadne snovi. Zaradi izboljšane prekrvavitve pa je koža občutno mehkejša in bolj gladka. Zaradi krtačenja nimam več problemov s suho kožo in praskanjem nog, res je odlična navada in upam, da se je lotite! Suho krtačenje pa naj bi zmanjševalo tudi celulit.

Kokosovo olje za lase - nedvomno najboljše olje za nego las! Avokadovo in arganovo sta tudi super, a zame je kokosovo še vedno najboljše. Olje prodre globoko v lase ter jih nahrani, kar moji lasje v tem zimskem vremenu potrebujejo še bolj kot običajno. Nanesem ga po celotni dolžini las in na lasišče, lase počešem v figo in pustim čez noč. Lahko pa pustite tudi le eno uro. Zjutraj umijem lase enako kot običajno, dvojno šamponiranje je obvezno. Nato si po sušenju las nanesem še malo olja, da so navlaženi in zaščiteni, a res malo! Če imate bolj tanke lase, bodite previdne in raje nanesite manj kot več. Se mi je že zgodilo, da sem ga uporabila preveč in si še enkrat umivala lase ali pa jih spletla v kito. Kokosovo olje lahko uporabite še na veliko načinov, kot olje za telo, za odstranjevanje ličil, nego obnohtne kožice in še in še.

Let's talk about the three products or habits that you really have to do in the new year. I highly recommend all three of them and encourage you to try them, if you haven't already. I've already written about them, some more than other, but I love them all so much that I decided to share them in one post. And trust me when I say this, they will change your life! But not your wallet, because they're
affordable and also easily available, which is always a big plus in my book.

 Honey for skin - I think it's really unnecessary for me to write about honey again, I wrote a whole post about it for crying out loud! It works so well for my skin, honey is just amazing, don't you agree?! Deeply moisturizing and anti-bacterial - perfect for very dry or oily and problematic skin. And all types in between. I constantly repeat myself but I just can't help it! :) I love to use in the evenings like a face mask and I keep it on for as long as I like, from 15 minutes to one hour, whatever you wish, really. Sometimes I use it as my morning face cleanser and even leave it on for five minutes, take a quick shower and then rinse it off. You can use it just like that or mix in some superfoods like cacao, green tea, turmeric or oats, and made your own face mask.

Dry brushing for body - the perfect way to start each day. Body brushing promotes blood circulation and lymph system, which is a part of the immune system and therefore it has a soothing effect on health. And it's also excellent at removing dead skin cells. With body brushing we stimulate and clean the lymphatic system and encourage lymph fluid to carry away toxic wastes. Due to improved blood circulation, the skin is much softer and smoother. I now no longer have problems with dry skin and itchy, scratchy legs. It really is a great habit and I really hope you give it a go! And keep in mind it's also supposed to remove cellulite. More about dry body brushing in this post.

Coconut oil for hair - without a doubt, the best oil for hair! Avocado and argan oil are also great, but coconut is the one for me. The oil penetrates deeply into the hair and nourishes them, which my hair really need in this cold weather. I apply it to the entire lenght of my hair and massage it into my scalp, then comb my hair into a bun and leave it overnight to do its magic. One hour is also effective, if you rather wash your hair in the evenings. I wash my hair as regular, but I'm careful to rinse it all off. Lather, rinse, repeat. After my hair is dry I then also apply a bit of oil to protect and give a bit of moisture back into my hair, but I only use a little! If you have thin hair, be really cautious and use just a tiny bit. Less is definitely more! You don't want to have greasy hair, trust me on that, it happened to me a few times and I had to wash my hair again or just did a braid if it wasn't too bad. :) And you can also use coconut oil as a body oil, for cuticles, removing makeup and much more.

Are you also a fan of these products? :)

Much love,

Sundays are for Baths and Masks

Sunday, 4 January 2015


Kopel in maska za obraz sta moji trenutno najljubši obliki sprostitve. Običajno se v toplo kopel potopim enkrat na teden in nedelje so super za to. Zato sem se odločila, da danes delim z vami nekaj izdelkom, ki jih z veseljem uporabljam. Vsi so seveda naravni in niso testirani na živalih. :)
Čaj za kopel Vrtnica - če mi sledite na Instagramu, potem ste ta čaj že videle, a kot že ime pove, gre za "čaj", ki je primeren le za kopel. Prvotno sem jih naredila za prijateljico, nato pa hitro še zase. Vrtnica vsebuje grobo zmlete ovsene kosmiče, ki so nadvse odlični za kožo. Naredijo jo mehko in navlaženo, obenem pa jo še pomirijo. Dodala sem tudi grobo mleto sol in posušene vrtnične cvetove. Kopel zaradi ovsenih kosmičev postane rahlo motna in skoraj malce kremna, a ker nisem dodala nobenega eteričnega olja, kopel ne diši tako kot bi želela. Zato preprosto vlijem v kopel še malo Deep Steep kopeli pa je!

Deep Steep Bubble Bath Passion Fruit Guava - sladko tropski vonj ni ravno najbolj primeren za trenutni letni čas, a včasih je ravno zaradi vonja super, ker tako vsaj za trenutek pozabim, da je zunaj mrzlo in zasneženo. Izdelek v zelo všečni debeli plastenki proizvede dobro količino mehurčkov oziroma pene, ki pa na mojo žalost kar hitro izgine. No, razen, če vlijem res veliko. A nič zato, izdelek mi je vseeno zelo všeč in glede na naravne sestavine proizvede ogromno pene. Pa še všeč mi je napis: our bubbles + you = queen for a day. :) Poleg dobre knjige, YT videa ali pa celo serije, je pri namakanju v kopeli ključna tudi maska za obraz. Zaradi toplote se pore odprejo, maska pa lahko tako učinkuje še bolj kot običajno in zato skoraj vedno uporabim masko za obraz.
Maska za obraz Kurkuma - v zadnjem času sem spet začela uporabljati mojo preljubo doma narejeno masko za obraz s kurkumo, zmletimi ovsenimi kosmiči in medom. Res, da kožo pusti rahlo rumeno a glede na to, da učinkuje odlično, je lahko moj obraz še bolj rumen. :) Več o maski si lahko preberete tukaj, naj le povem, da so vse sestavine več kot odlične za kožo! Med jo nahrani in obenem deluje tudi proti nastanku mozoljev pa še brazgotine blaži, kurkuma zelo učinkovito svetli kožo in pomaga odstraniti rdeče madeže oziroma brazgotine in hiperpigmentne madeže, ovseni kosmiči pa kožo izjemno pomirijo in jo naredijo mehko. Zelo preprosta maska a tako zelo učinkovita. Zelo priporočam! Po kopeli pa je na koncu zame nujna še nahranitev celega telesa, torej nanos hranljive kreme ali olja za telo.

Weleda Revitalizacijsko olje za telo - Weleda je ena izmed naravnih znamk, ki je pri nas zelo dostopna. Izdelke imajo v različnih drogerijah, trgovinah z zdravo prehrano in podobno, a šele v zadnjem času sem preizkusila malo več njihovih izdelkov. Olje je del nove Weledine linije s svetlinovim oljem kot glavno učinkovino. Svetlinovo olje učvrsti, nahrani in regenerira zrelo kožo ter izboljša njeno napetost. Obenem podpira presnovo celic in okrepi naravno zaščitno funkcijo kože. Poleg svetlinovega olja, ki se sicer v izdelku nahaja bolj pri koncu sestavin, vsebuje tudi jojobino olje in olje pšeničnih kalčkov, ki koži podarita večjo elastičnost in okrepita sposobnost vezave vlage. Med sestavinami so tudi sezamovo, sončnično, olivno olje, olje makadamije in še kaj. Olje ima kar prijeten vonj, zelo mi je všeč opis na embalaži: cvetlično sveži vonj svetlina je zaokrožen z vonjem magnolije, svežino kardamoma in toplino sandalovine, ki olju podari skrivnostno toplino. Olje najraje uporabljam zvečer, še posebej po prijetni kopeli, ko ga koža kar posrka. Ob zmernem nanosu se hitro vpije v kožo in jo čudovito nahrani in naredi mehko. Razen kokosovega olja nisem uporabljala veliko olj za telo, a to me je res navdušilo, da bi jih preizkusila več. Včasih ga uporabim tudi za nego las in prav tako deluje krasno.


Translation
A bath and a face mask are my current favourite ways to unwind and take care of me and my body. Usually I sink into a warm bath once a week and Sundays are perfect for that. That's why I decided to share with you a few products I've been loving. Products that are good for my body and my soul. All natural and cruelty free of course. :)

Bath Tea Bag Rose - if you follow me on Instagram, then you've already seen these, but as the name suggests, this is tea for bath. Initially I made them for my friend, but then I quickly made some more for me too. This Rose tea bag contains coarsely ground rolled oats, which are amazing for your skin! And I love to eat them too.<3 They make your skin super soft and moisturized, and to top it all off, they work beautifully at calming and soothing your skin. I also added coarse ground salt and dried rose petals. Bath becomes a bit cloudy or hazy and almost creamy, but because I didn't add any essential oils it doesn't smell like I would want it to. But that can be easily solved with some Deep Steep Bubble Bath.

Deep Steep Bubble Bath Passion Fruit Guava - sweet tropical scent isn't the most appropriate for the winter but sometimes that's a good thing, because I then just for a little while forget that it's cold and snowy outside. Product comes in a very cute, fat packaing and the bubble bath provides a very decent amount of bubbles. For a natural bubble bath it provides loads of bubbles. Unfortunately they disappear quite quickly, except if I pour a lot of it. But I don't really mind that and I still love this product! And I also really like the little phrase: our bubbles + you = queen for a day. :)
Besides a good book, YT video or even a series, my bath experience is not complete without a good face mask.

Face mask Turmeric - lately I've been loving my old favourite DIY face mask with oats, tumeric and honey. It turnes my skin a tad yellow but because it works so good I wouldn't mind if my skin was even more yellow. :) You can read more about this mask here, let me just tell you that all three ingredients are more than wonderful for your skin! Honey is super moisturizing but also anti-bacterial and just the best thing ever! Turmeric is very effective at lightening your skin and it really helps with removing blemishes, hyperpigmentation and scars. Last but not least are oats, my fave calming and soothing ingredient, which also make my skin soft and smooth. This is such an easy face mask, yet so effective. I highly recommend it!
  
Weleda Evening Primrose Revitalising Oil - the extra-rich Evening Primrose Revitalizing Oil regenerates the skin intensively, strengthens and reactivates its natural protective function. The composition with Jojoba and Wheat Germ Oil gives the skin more firmness and elasticity and increases its moisture-binding properties. Amongst the ingredients are also Sesame, Sunflower, Olive and Macadamia Oil. It has quite a nice scent, I really like description of it and I'll try to translate it as good as I can: fresh floral scent of Evening Primrose is rounded with the scent of Magnolia, freshness of Cardamom and warmth of Sandalwood, which gives the oil a mysterious warmth. I love using this oil in the evening, especially after a lovely and relaxing bath. My skin drinks it up! It quickly sinks into the skin and leaves it super nourished and soft. With the exception of coconut oil, I haven't really used much body oils, but this one is making me want to try more. Sometimes I also use it on my hair and it works great.


Have a lovely Sunday,

Jana xx
