Marmozel Serum for Mature Skin

Sunday, 29 March 2015


O litvanski znamki Marmozel sem že pisala tukaj, danes pa je na vrsti ocena še enega izdelka, seruma za zrelo kožo oziroma Serum for Mature Skin, Age 30+*.  Intenzivno vlažilen serum, ki spodbuja regeneracijo kože in učinkuje proti staranju kože. Serum vsebuje sestavine iz ekološko pridelanih sestavin, kot so vrtnična voda, šipkovo olje, aloe vera, izvleček granatnega jabolka, kavo. Celoten spisek sestavin pa tukaj.
Marmozel for Mature Skin, Age 30+
Marmozel Serum for Mature Skin
Serum ima redko, skoraj vodeno teksturo rumenkaste barve, ter dokaj neprijeten in močan vonj - rekla bi, da ima vonj po kislem. Na njihovi spletni strani je vonj opisan kot mešanica vrtnic in blage kave. Bi rekla, da to kar drži. Sprva me je vonj zelo zmotil, a sem se sčasoma navadila in ga za čuda sploh nisem več zaznala. Serum sem uporabljala več kot mesec dni, skoraj vsako jutro in vsak večer, in moram reči, da mi je všeč a obenem nisem opazila večjih sprememb na koži. Teh pravzaprav niti nisem pričakovala, ker je težko opaziti hiter napredek v izdelkih, ki so namenjeni proti staranju kože. No moram pa še dodati, da gubic niti nisem preučila, tako da niti primerjati ne morem, a zaradi vsebnosti antioksidantov zagotovo deluje proti staranju kože. Nasploh pa se mi zdi, da taki izdelki svoje učinke pokažejo šele čez več mesecev. Tako da ga včasih uporabljam tudi na vratu, okoli oči pa vedno. Sicer pa kožo vlaži, po mojem mnenju sicer ne intenzivno, kot je to v opisu, a še vseeno dobro. Prav tako se tudi hitro vpije in je nasploh zelo lahke teksture ter tako odlična podlaga za nanos kreme ali olja. Serum pa se lahko uporablja tudi namesto kreme in je tako tudi dobra, nemastna podlaga za nanos pudra.
Marmozel Serum for Mature skin, Age 30+, consistency
Stvar na katero bi opozorila je, da je serum visoko koncentriran in če imate občutljivo kožo, kožo nagnjeno k rdečici in razširjenim kapilaram, bodite pazljive, ker serum stanje lahko poslabša. Včasih sem tudi sama opazila povečano rdečico, zato sem ga za nekaj dni prenehala uporabljati in šele nato nadaljevala. Ob vsem napisanem vseeno menim, da gre za super serum s krasnimi sestavinami, ki imajo več kot očitno visoko koncentracijo in veliko antioksidantov. Prav zaradi tega pa je morda boljše, da se ga ne uporablja vsakodnevno, sploh na bolj občutljivi koži.

I've already talked about Lithuanian brand Marmozel (here), and today I want to introduce you their Serum for Mature Skin, Age 30+*. Serim intensively moisturizes, stimulates skin's regeneration, has an anti-aging effect. It contains organic ingredients like Rose Water, Rosehip Oil, Aloe Vera, Pomegranate extracts, Coffee. Ingredient list here.

Yellowish coloured serum has a thin, almost watery consistency and quite unpleasant and strong scent. I'd say it has a sour scent and in the beginning I really wasn't fond of it, but as time passed it stopped bothering me. Yaay! On their site it's described as roses and mild coffee, and I would agree. I've been using it for more than a month, almost every morning and evening, and I have to say that I like it but I haven't seen any big results. Honestly, I didn't even expect them, because I find it's hard to see massive results in anti-aging products targeted for mature skin in a small amount of time. I also haven't thoroughly examined my fine lines and maybe that's why I haven't noticed anything. The serum contains lots of antioxidants which definitely work some magic and I'm fine with that! I believe that anti-aging products show results in months, not days, and that's why I usually also use it on my neck and always around my eyes. You can't have enough antioxidants there! :) All in all, it does moisture my skin, I wouldn't say intensively but I still like it! It's also quickly absorbed into the skin and because of its light texture it's a great base for cream or oil. Or you can just use it as a cream, which provides a great non-greasy base for foundation. 

One thing I'd like to point out is that there's no strict age limit on when to use it, but it is recommended to use it since the age of 30. But be careful when using on skin with sensitive surface capillaries or redness – serum's active ingredients have high concentrations that can cause more redness. Sometimes I did noticed that so I just stopped using it for a few days and then continued. That being said I still think it's a great serum with amazing active ingredients which are cleary in high concentration. But because of that I wouldn't recommend using it everyday, especially if your skin is more on the sensitive side.


Happy Sunday!

Much love,
Jana xx

Herbfarmacy Wash-Off Cleansing Mousse

Tuesday, 24 March 2015


Pred kratkim sem vam v tej objavi obljubila oceno Herbfarmacy Wash-Off Cleansing Mousse* in končno sem jo uspela napisati. Herbfarmacy je nagrajena britanska znamka naravne kozmetike iz ekološko pridelanih sestavin. Že po imenu sodeč izdelki temeljijo na zeliščih in rožah, ki jih gojijo na svoji farmi. Čudovit travnik posut s prekrasnim ognjičem in ameriškim slamnikom je prikazan tudi na spodnjih fotografijah. Zgodba o Herbfarmacy se je začela z gojenjem zelišč Paula Richardsa, ki je nato kasneje s svojo ženo Carol in ekipo razvil Herbfarmacy, linijo, ki je primerna tudi za občutljivo kožo. Poleg protivnetnega in zdravilnega ognjiča, v svojih formulacijah zelo radi uporabljajo navadni slez (ang. marshmallow). Roža z belimi do rahlo rožnatimi cvetovi v svojih koreninah vsebuje sluz, ki privlači in zadržuje vlago v koži, obenem pa tudi neverjetno pomirja in je tako odlična sestavina za občutljivo in suho kožo.
Poleg zgoraj omenjenih sestavin, to krasno čistilno sredstvo za obraz med drugim vsebuje vodo, kamilico, olje mareličnih pešk, aloe vero, rožmarin in še kaj. Ena izmed sestavin, ki mi v izdelku ni preveč všeč je phenoxyethanol, konzervans, ki se ga načeloma izogibam. Gre za alergen, ki lahko povzroči alergično reakcijo, kot naprimer srbečico, povezovali pa so ga tudi že z rakom. Za več informacij pa raje malo pobrskajte po spletu, nisem ravno strokovnjakinja, mi je pa veliko ljubše, da sestavine na izdelku prepoznam, kot pa da vidim neko sintetično sestavino, ki jo po vsej verjetnosti še izgovoriti ne znam pravilno. :) A dovolj o tem in pojdimo raje na stvari na katere se spoznam, na mojo izkušnjo tega čistila za obraz.
Že po samem opisu si lahko mislite, da ima izdelek teksturo kremne pene (ali moussa). A ne gre za lahko peno, v smislu, da vsebuje veliko zraka, ampak gre za kremno peno. Morda bi ga pa še bolje opisala kot gosto kremno mleko. Meni ima super konsistenco, mehko in zelo prijetno za uporabo. Izdelek se ne peni in je zelo nežen. Tak pa je tudi sam vonj - nežen, cvetlično-zeliščen vonj. Najraje ga uporabljam za jutranje čiščenje ter kot moj drugi korak pri večernem čiščenju obraza, kot ste že morda prebrale tukaj. Nanesem ga na suh obraz, ga nežno vmasiram, dodam malo vode, da se še lepše razporedi, ter sperem ali pa uporabim mokro brisačko. Lahko pa ga uporabite tudi za odstranitev ličil. Sicer sem ga tako preizkusila le enkrat, a skoraj popolnoma je odstranil tudi naravno maskaro. Z dvojnim nanosom in uporabo mokre brisačke pa bi jo odstranil popolnoma. 

Cleansing Mousse mi je zelo všeč, ker je tako nežen, kože ne izsuši ali razdraži, odstrani vse ostanke ličil, ne peče oči ter je primeren za vse tipe kože. Všeč mi je tudi logo in embalaža na pumpico, edina stvar, ki bi jo spremenila je, da bi se na embalaži videlo koliko izdelka sem že porabila. :)
Herbfarmacy Wash-Off Cleansing Mousse consistency
Glede na vse, Herbfarmacy čistilni mousse priporočam, meni je zelo všeč!<3 Preizkusila sem tudi še nekaj drugih Herbfarmacy izdelkov in moram reči, da gre za krasno znamko in komaj čakam, da vam predstavim še ostale izdelke. :) Na voljo tukaj.

A while ago, when I posted this article, I promised you I'll write a review of the Herbfarmacy Wash-Off Cleansing Mousse* and I finally managed to do it. Herbfarmacy is an award winning British natural and organic skincare. The name of the brand is most fitting, their products are based on wonderful herbs and flowers that they grow on their farm. I love their description - Home grown & packed with freshest ingredients. On the first two photos you can see a bit of their farm with gorgeous Calendula and Echinacea. It was the plant expert Paul Richards who started growing herbs on his farm and together with his wife, Carol and the team, they design and create Herbfarmacy. A brand that's also ideal for sensitive skin. Besides anti-inflammatory and healing Calendula, the herb they love to use in their concotions is Marshmallow. A flower with delicate lilac/pink flowers that stores its amazing soothing properties in the roots. It contains soft mucilages which attract and hold moisture in the skin surface, making marshmallow a valuable herb for dry and sensitive skin.

This lovely cleansing mousse also contains ingredients like Water, Chamomile, Apricot Kernel Oil, Aloe Vera, Rosemary and more. One ingredients that I don't like is Phenoxyethanol, a preservative which I tend to avoid. It can cause an allergic reaction like itchiness, and there're also some studies linking it to cancer. But you should definitely google it to learn more, I'm no expert! :) So let's just rather move on the stuff I know, on my experience with the cleanser.

 As the name suggest, the product has a consistency of a mousse. It is fluffy like a mousse but if the word "mousse" wasn't in the name of the product, I would describe it as a thick, super creamy cleansing milk. I love it, it's so soft and just so nice to use. It doesn't foam, it's super gentle and has a nice herby-floral scent. My fave way of using it is in the mornings and as my second step in my evening routine, which you could have read here. I apply it to my dry skin, gently massage it, add a bit of water to spread it even nicely, and then rinse with lukewarm water or use a warm cotton cloth to remove it. I also tried it for removing my makeup and it even removed my natural mascara! With a second cleanse you can easily remove everything, especially when using washcloth.

I really like the Wash-Off Cleansing Mousse, it's gentle, it doesn't dry out my skin or irritates it, it removes all of my makeup, it doesn't sting my eyes and it's suitable for all skin types. I also like their logo, anything flowers wins me over, and the pump bottle is great too! There's one thing I'd like to change, but that's my constant struggle - I just wish the bottle wasn't white so I could see how much product there's left. :)

All in all, I love this Herbfarmacy cleanser and I recommend it, it's awesome!<3 I've also been testing some other Herbfarmacy products and all I can say is that it's a beautiful brand and I can't wait to show you more of their products. :) Get it here.


Have you tried it? What do you think about it?

Much love,

Vegan Cooking

Friday, 20 March 2015


Pred kratkim sem dobila prošnjo ali dve, da bi poleg mojih idej za zajtrk, delila še kakšno vegetarijansko ali vegansko jed primerno za kosilo. Nisem točno vedela katero naj sploh delim, ker se mi zdi, da sploh ne jem nič posebnega, vedno pa je moj cilj, da je jed čim hitreje pripravljena. Le komu se da čakati, da je skuhano? Meni že ne. No, morda včasih. :) Tako da sem se odločila za zelo enostavno in hitro jed - špagete z paradižnikovo omako in špinačo.
Za jed potrebujete:
- špagete (jaz sem uporabila vegan in polnozrnate špagete),
- pol žličke kokosovega olja,
- dva ali tri stroke česna,
- paradižnikovo omako,
- 2 pesti špinače (jaz sem uporabila še malo blitve) in
- sol in poper.

Najprej zavrite vodo in dajte kuhati špagete. Med tem, ko se kuhajo, v ponvi rahlo prepražite česen, dodajte paradižnikovo omako, posolite, popoprajte ter pustite minuto ali dve. Nato dodajte veliko pest špinače, pustite minuto oziroma še manj, da se le rahlo skuha in nato dodajte še preostalo špinačo ter izklopite. Jed je gotova. Ja, tako preprosto je! :) Špinačo sicer lahko kuhate tudi dlje, a jaz z vročino nočem uničiti vseh krasnih lastnosti surove špinače.
Za konec naj le še omenim, da pred jedjo spijte kozarec vode z limono ali pa preprosto pripravite solato z limoninim sokom, saj se železo, ki je v špinači, bolje absorbira v telo, ko poleg zaužijemo vitamin C.

A while ago I got a request or two to share what I eat for lunch or dinner. I guess some of you enjoy my breakfast ideas, which I'm super happy about! So, I didn't really know what to share, because I don't think I eat anything special, but I always have one thing in mind, to cook something that doesn't take a long time. Who has time to wait for the food to cook? I certainly don't. Well, maybe sometimes. :) That's why I decided to share with you a super easy, quick and at the same time delicious dish - spaghetti with tomato sauce and spinach. 

To make it you'll need:
- spaghetti (I used vegan and whole grain),
- half a teaspoon of coconut oil,
- two or three cloves of garlic,
- tomato sauce,
- two handfuls of spincah and
- salt and black pepper to taste.

First boil some water and cook your spaghetti. In the meantime saute your garlic and then add the tomato sauce, salt and pepper. After a minute or two add a handful of spinach (or a handful and a half) and cook for a minute, or rather 30 seconds. Then add the rest of the spincah, stir it in and turn the heat off. You're done. Yes, it's that simple! You can cook your spinach a bit more but I like to keep it almost raw so I don't destroy all of its raw nutrient power.

Oh and I also wanted to mention that you should drink a glass of lemon water before eating or eat a salad with lemon juice, because vitamin C helps your body absorb the iron in the spinach. :)


Bon appétit!

Love,
Jana xx

Gaia Creams Gorgeous Hair Oil

Sunday, 15 March 2015


Ko pride do nege las, ne eksperimentiram s toliko različnimi izdelki, kot se to dogaja pri negi obraza. Saj preizkusim kakšen nov izdelek, a niti približno jih ne menjujem tako kot za obraz. Zato sem pa le še bolj vesela, ko dobim priložnost testiranja novih izdelkov. Če je pa od Gaia Creams, je pa to le še bolj veselo testiranje. Torej, naj vam predstavim moje trenutno najljubše olje za lase, Gaia Creams Gorgeous Hair Oil*. Olje vsebuje ekološko pridelane sestavine, kot so olje žafranike, arganovo, sezamovo, konopljino, jojobino, mandljevo in avokadovo olje.
Gaia Creams Gorgeous Hair Oil, vegan, organic
Gaia Creams Gorgeous Hair Oil, organic, vegan, palm oil free
Gaia Creams Gorgeous Hair Oil
To krasno olje:
- krepi, nahrani in izboljšuje lase od znotraj,
- preprečuje izgubo las in vpliva na rast novih,
- dela čudeže na suhem lasišču in pri različnih obolenjih, še posebej glivičnih, 
- dela čudeže na suhih lasnih konicah in suhih, poškodovanih laseh,
- ščiti lase pred soncem in uničujočimi vplivi onesnaževanja.
To čudovito olje najraje uporabljam večer pred jutranjim umivanjem las. Enakomerno ga razporedim po laseh, osredotočim se predvsem na konice in spodnji del las, na lasišče pa ga običajno ne nanašam. Moj postopek poteka tako, da lase razdelim po sredini glave, na dva pramena. Nato olje razporedim po dlaneh in ga nanesem na en pramen. Na istem pramenu las postopek običajno ponovim dvakrat, odvisno od količine olja. Nato lase le še razčešem s Tangle Teezer krtačo in naredim figo na vrhu glave. Zjutraj lase normalno operem, dvojno jih šamponiram z Acure šamponom za suhe in poškodovane lase z arganovim oljem, in nato uporabim še balzam iz iste linije. Lasje so po uporabi občutno mehkejši, bolj gladki in navlaženi.

Drug način uporabe pa je nanos olja na suhe lase, kjer nanesem zelo malo, da lasje slučajno ne postanejo mastni. Ta uporaba mi je še posebej všeč, ker olje lase neprestano vlaži, obenem pa še krasno dišijo. Olje ima prijeten cvetlični vonj po mešanici eteričnih olj palmarose, geranije oziroma pelargonije in sivke.
Na koncu lahko rečem le, ime pove vse. Čudovit izdelek je! Na voljo tukaj.

When it comes to hair care, I don't experimente with so many products as I do with skin care. I mean I do try a new product then and again, but there aren't too many changes. But don't get me wrong, I still love trying new things, actually, I adore it. I'ts always amazing and super exciting when you get the chance to try some new and fabulously looking product, especially if it comes from such a lovely brand as Gaia Creams. So, let me introduce you to my current favourite hair oil, the Gaia Creams Gorgeous Hair Oil*. This vegan and cruelty free oil is made from organic ingredients like Safflower, Argan, Sesame, Hemp Seed, Jojoba, Almond and Avocado oils.

This wonderful hair oil :
- Strengthens, nourishes and rejuvenates your hair from within, 
- Prevents hair loss and promotes new hair growth,.
- Works magic on dry scalp infections, especially fungal, 
- Works magic on split ends and dry, damaged hair,
- Protect hair from the sun, and saves it  from damaging effects of pollution.

My fave way of using this divine oil is on the evening before my morning hair wash. I evenly apply it on my hair and I especially focus on the ends of my hair. I usually don't apply it on the scalp, because normally it doesn't need any special attention. I always part my hair along the middle of my head and divide it in two locks. Then I spread the oil in the palms of my hands and apply to one lock of hair. I usually repeat that twice, depends on the amount of oil I use. Then I simply brush my hair with my beloved Tangle Teezer and put my hair up in a bun. In the morning I wash my hair as normal, I double shampoo it and then also use a conditioner. Both from Acure, the Moroccan Argan Oil line, it's the best! The oil is oh so lovely and it makes my hair softer, smoother and moisturized.  

My second way of using it is on dry hair. I only use a tinny amount, because I don't want my hair to look greasy. I love using it like this because it nourishes them all day and because of the scent, which is so lovely! The oil smells like flowers, it contains Palmarosa, Geranium Rose and Lavender essential oils and I love it.<3

In the end all I really have to say is, the name says it all. It's gorgeous! Get it here.

Wish you all a sunny Sunday!

Love,
Jana

Let's Talk Trash #14

Thursday, 12 March 2015


Po dolgem času so spet na vrsti moji porabljeni izdelki. Poleg spodnjih sem porabila še kokosovo olje, ki ga uporablja za odstranjevanje ličil, nego las in telesa, ter med, ki ga uporabljam za občasno čiščenje obraza in kot masko. Nisem ju vključila v slike, ker so tako ali tako vedno prisotni. :)
Therapi Honey Skincare Orange Blossom Hydrating Facial Toner - prečudovit tonik za obraz s krasno stekleno embalažo!<3<3 Ocena tukaj. Tonik bi z največjim veseljem kupila ponovno, a mi je trenutno malce predrag.

Mádara Colour & Shine Conditioner - balzam za lase primeren za barvane lase, ocena tukaj. Glede na to, da je primeren za barvane lase sem pričakovala, da bo bolj hranilen, a žal ni. Sploh mi ni bil všeč in ga ne priporočam, če imate suhe in barvane lase. Morda pa bi bil vredu za lase, ki ne potrebujejo dodatne vlage, a sama ga definitivno ne bom kupila ponovno.

Skin Blossom Orange and Aloe Soothe & Hydrate - zelo prijeten gel za tuširanje s pomarančo in aloe vero. Gel se lepo peni in kožo nežno očisti, več o njem pa si lahko preberete tukaj. Bi ga kupila ponovno, a za ceno (~10), bi mi moral biti bolj všeč.


Translation
It's time for another empties post. Besides the products I'm gonna talk about I also finished coconut oil and honey, my holy grail products. :)


Therapi Honey Skincare Orange Blossom Hydrating Facial Toner - this is such a wonderful, wonderful toner!! I absolutely loved it!<3<3 You can find my review here. I'd love to buy it again but at the moment it's a bit too expensive for me.

Mádara Colour & Shine Conditioner - review here. As this conditioner is for coloured hair a.k.a. dry and damaged hair, I expected it to be nourishing, but unfortunately it isn't. I really didn't like it and I don't recommend it. Maybe it would be a great choice for untreated and fine hair and hair that don't need much moisture, but I definitely won't be repurchasing.

Skin Blossom Orange and Aloe Soothe & Hydrate - a lovely gel shower, with a nice lather and citrusy scent. Read more about it here. I would buy it again but in all honesty, I can get a nicer shower gel for less money.
Alverde Blush, Apricot 01 - lep, mareličen odtenek, ki se krasno poda skoraj vsakemu odtenku šminke. Zaradi barve ga včasih uporabim tudi kot bronzer, lepo otopli obraz, včasih pa ga uporabim tudi kot senčilo, sploh na pregibu veke. Sem že kupila novega.

Alverde Hand Cream Tonka Bean - krema za roke z vonjem vanilije iz Alverdine omejene kolekcije. Kožo je navlažila, če se prav spomnim, se je tudi vpila hitro, ni pa bila nič posebnega. Kreme ni več na voljo, a tudi če bi bila, je ne bi kupila ponovno.

Lily Lolo Mineral Finishing Powder Translucent Silk - zaključni puder za obraz bele oziroma transparentne barve. Uporabljala sem ga po nanosu Lily Lolo mineralne podlage, saj je popolnoma prosojen in ne uniči videza pudra, pravzaprav ga celo izboljša. Izdelek sem sicer imela zelo dolgo, ker ga nisem uporabljala redno, vseeno pa mi je bil všeč, ker je bila z njegovo uporabo podlaga bolj obstojna, lepše se je zlila z mojo kožo pa še nisem se tako svetila. Več ali manj sem jo uporabljala poleti. Zaključno podlago bi kupila ponovno in jo verjetno v prihajajočih mesecih tudi bom.

Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation, Blondie - najljubši puder, ki ga uporabljam že vrsto let in še vedno se ga nisem naveličala. Seveda sem že kupila novega. Več pa tukaj.

Schmidt's Ylang Ylang + Calendula Deodorant - najboljši naravni deodorant kar sem jih preizkusila!<3 Imam že novega in še enega na zalogi. :) Ocena tukaj.


Translation
Alverde Blush, Apricot 01 - pretty apricot colour that goes well with lots of different shades of lipsticks. Because of its warmth I sometimes like to use it as a bronzer, and even as an eyeshadow - it's a nice crease, transitioning colour. I've already bought a new one.

Alverde Hand Cream Tonka Bean - vanilla smelling hand cream, that made my skin quite moisturized and if I remember correctly, it was also quickly absorbed into the skin. It was allright but nothing special, and even if I could buy it again, I wouldn't (it was a limited edition).

Lily Lolo Mineral Finishing Powder Translucent Silk - I used this finishing powder on top of my Lily Lolo mineral foundation and I liked it. It's transparent so it doesn't really matter if you apply to much, and it actually improves the look of the skin. I had this product for so long, I didn't use it regularly but I really liked it. It works great at setting the foundation, which therefore lasts longer. I used to use it more in the summer because my face was less shiny when I applied it. I would buy it again and I probably will in the upcoming months.

Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation, Blondie - my fave foundation ever! I already have a new one. I wrote a little bit about it here.

Schmidt's Ylang Ylang + Calendula Deodorant - best natural deodorant ever!<3 If you're not allergic to soda, that is. I already use a new one and have another one in a drawer. :) My review here.
Odacité Discovery Kit* - ne bom se spuščala v vsak izdelek posebej, več si lahko preberete tukaj. Nobenega izmed izdelkov še nisem kupila v večji embalaži, bi pa z veseljem imela vlažilno masko, tonik, dnevno kremo in njihova olja. Na splošno gre za krasne izdelke in če imate možnost, vam jih zelo svetujem.

CV Skinlabs Body Lotion* in Calming Moisture* - losjon ni bil nič posebnega in ne vem zakaj sem ga sploh vključila v objavo. Po drugi pa je krema za obraz Calming Moisture čudovita! Takoj se vpije v kožo, jo vlaži in neverjetno pomirja! Kremo bom nedvomno enkrat kupila v večji embalaži, trenutno pa res ne potrebujem nove kreme za obraz.

Dr. Alkaitis Eye Cream* - že dolgo časa nazaj sem od nemške spletne trgovine Amazingy prejela nekaj izdelkov in med njimi je bil tudi Travel & Try Kit znamke Dr. Alkaitis. Večkrat sem želela pisati o njej, a nekako se ne morem odločiti kaj si sploh mislim o znamki. Nekaj časa mi je super, nato le vredu in tako ne morem napisati temeljite objave. Lahko pa rečem to, da so testerji zelo, zelo radodarni in tole kremo za oči sem uporabljala kar en mesec! Bila mi je všeč, vlažilna, hitro se vpije v kožo, a v tem času nisem videla nobenih sprememb zato ne bom kupila večje embalaže. A če vas znamka zanima, vam zelo priporočam set s testerji, ker res lahko dobro preizkusite njihove izdelke.

My Daughter Fragrances Joyful - naravni parfum z močnim in sladkim vonjem. Vonjem, ki me spominja na babice, in na žalost ne v dobrem smislu. Meni je preprosto premočan in presladek. Sem pa zelo hvaležna, da sem ta parfum lahko sploh povohala, saj mi ga je v paketku z Odylique antioksidantnim serumom in temno čokolado poslala nadvse prijazna Inga. Žal se je na poti med Litvo in Slovenijo razlil, tako da nisem mogla preizkusiti niti njegove obstojnost.

Konjac Sponge Pink Clay Facial Puff Sponge - krasna gobica za jutranje čiščenje obraza. Vsakodneven nežen piling obraza res naredi lepšo kožo in v času, ko gobice nisem uporabljala sem prav videla razliko v kožo - več suhih madežev, bunkic in koža je izgledala bolj utrujena. Imam že novo in zelo jih priporočam, med drugim jih imajo tudi v Sanolaborju. Ocena pa tukaj.

Odacité Discovery Kit* - I won't go into details, but if you're interested in samples you can read about them here. I really enjoyed some of these products, especially the Hydrating Mask, Beautiful Day Moisturizer, Divine Rose & Neroli Balancing Toner and their oils. Odacité is a beautiful brand and I highly recommend giving it a go. 

CV Skinlabs Body Lotion* in Calming Moisture* - lotion is really nothing special, and to tell you the truth I don't even know why I included it in this post, but the Calming Moisture cream is amazing! It quickly sinks into the skin, it hydrates it and it's incredible at calming it! I think I'll buy it, but certaintly not at this time, because I have quite a few face creams I have to use up first.

Dr. Alkaitis Eye Cream* - a few months ago I got some products from a beautiful german store Amazingy. And amongst them there was also Travel & Try Kit from Dr. Alkaitis. I wanted to write a review on them a couple of times, but I still haven't made up my mind on some products. Sometimes I love them and other times I don't, it's so strange. But one thing I know for sure is, that these samples come in a very generous packaging. I had this eye cream for a month! I like it, it's moisturizing, it quickly sinks into the skin, but I haven't seen any big changes so I won't purchase a big jar of it. But if you're curious about Dr. Alkaitis then I would highly urge you to try this sample kit, it really is a great way of testing their products.

My Daughter Fragrances Joyful - natural perfume with strong, sweet scent. The kind of scent that remindes me of grandmas, but not in a good way, unfortunately. I find it too strong and too sweet. But I'm super grateful I had a chance to sniff it! The lovely Inga sent me a small parcel with Odylique Superfruit Concentrate tester and a yummy dark chocolate, and she also included this perfume. Unfortunately it didn't make it and it spilled on the way from Lithuania to Slovenia, so I didn't even had a chance to try its lasting power.

Konjac Sponge Pink Clay Facial Puff Sponge - a beautiful sponge, perfect for morning face cleanse. I found that it really makes a difference in my skin, it provides a nice daily, gentle scrub that makes a huge difference in the texture of my skin. I already have a new one and if you haven't tried it already, I higly recommend it. Review here.
Essence I Heart Extreme Mascara - tole maskaro sem včasih veliko uporabljala in tale je še skoraj nerabljena, a ker jo imam že tako dolgo, jo moram vreči stran. Na srečo sem v istem obdobju, ko sem jo kupila, preizkusila naravne maskare, ki so me prijetno presenetile, saj so dejansko naredile lepe trepalnice. Zato ker ni naravna, je ne bom kupila ponovno, sicer pa mi je bila vedno všeč.

Alverde Eyeliner - tale slika pove vse! Eyeliner se mi je posušil v enem tednu! Ker sem pač mislila, da sem izbrala res enega starega, ki so ga vsi po vrsti odpirali, sem kupila novega. Ta se je posušil v enem mesecu! Zanič, ne priporočam! In ali bi lahko že enkrat vse izdelke tako zapakirali, da jih ne bi bilo mogoče odpirati?!! Ali jih niso včasih lepili s selotejpom?!

Lily Lolo Natural Mascara* - najboljša naravna maskara kar sem jih preizkusila!<3 Ocena tukaj, zelo priporočam!

Benecos Natural Mascara Maximum Volume - kar dobra maskara, ki mi je naredila daljše trepalnice, a ker se je drobila je ne bom kupila ponovno.

Essence I Heart Extreme Mascara - I used to love this mascara, but I'm happy to say that it's almost unused because I found natural mascaras that actually really work! So I won't be repurchasing.

Alverde Eyeliner - this picture says it all! Eyeliner dried in one week! One week!! I bought a new one and that one dried in one month!! Aaagh soo annyoing! Don't buy it, okay?!! :) 

Lily Lolo Natural Mascara* - the best natural mascara I've tried!<3 Review here, I highly recommend it! 

Benecos Natural Mascara Maximum Volume - a nice mascara, that did make my lashes longer, but because it flaked I won't be buying it again.


That's it from me today, hope you liked it and I'll talk to you soon.

Have a lovely day,

In a Cup

Sunday, 8 March 2015


Že dolgo časa nazaj sem napisala objavo o presnih, energijskih in nadvse okusnih, čokoladnih kroglicah. Recept za njih lahko najdete tukaj. Čeprav jih je zelo enostavno narediti, še vseeno obstaja veliko lažja rešitev, če vas le ne moti, da ne izgleda tako lepo. Mene to sploh ne moti in v zadnjem času jih jem le še tako. Namesto, da bi maso oblikovala v kroglice, pojem kar z žlico, yum! :)
Sestavine lahko prilagodite svojim željam in okusu, lahko pa preprosto uporabite tisto kar imate doma. Različne oreščke, semena, kakav, kokos, cimet, datlje, med, superhrano v prahu, matcha čaj, čili...možnosti je ogromno! Jaz sem za ta recept uporabila:
* pest lešnikov (bi jih več pa mi jih je zmanjkalo; super je tudi mešanica lešnikov in mandljev) - seveda sem jih za boljšo absorpcijo vitaminov in mineralov, in izboljšanje prebavljivosti, namočila čez noč. Lahko jih namočite tudi za nekaj ur, boljše kot nič,
* pest datljev,
* žlico kakava,
* kokosov čips in
* žličko kokosovega olja.
(V zmes sem dodala še ščep soli in malo vode, da se je mešanica lepše zmešala.)

Vse skupaj zmešajte v mešalniku oziroma sekljalniku. Jaz imam rada, da zmes ni popolnoma gladka, ampak da ostanejo manjši koščki oreščkov. Na koncu vse skupaj dajte v skodelico, posujte s kokosom in pojejte. :)
Upam, da vam je bila današnja kratka objava všeč in lepo nedeljo vam želim! :)

Long time ago I wrote a blog post dedicated to raw, vegan and delicious chocolate balls. You can find my recipe here. They're so easy to do, but lately I've been super lazy so I found an even easier solution. It doesn't look as pretty as raw choco balls, but the taste is the same - super yummy! So instead of making the balls, I just eat the mixture with a spoon and I'm sure I'm not the only one! :)

You can use whatever ingredients you like, different nuts, seeds, cacao, coconut, cinnamon, dates, honey, superfood, matcha tea, chilli...options are endless! For this recipe I used super simple, yet amazing ingredients:
* hazelnuts (I'd use more but I didn't have them; I also love a mix of hazelnuts and almonds) - of course I soaked them overnight to make sure the vitamins and minerals absorb better into my body. You can also soaked them for a few hours, better that than nothing,
* dates,
* 1 tbsp of cacao,
* coconut chips and
* 1 tsp of coconut oil.
(I also added a pinch of salt and some water, just to make sure everything mixed together nicely.)

So, you just mix everything together in a food processor and that is it! "Pour" into a cup, sprinkle some coconut on top and eat with a spoon. :)

I hope you liked this short blog post and I wish you all a very happy Sunday!

With love,
Jana xx
