The Magic of Honey


Že od nekdaj obožujem izdelke, ki vsebujejo med, vedno dišijo in delujejo. Redna uporaba medu dela čudeže na moji koži in če ga še ne uporabljate, ga morate nujno začeti! :)
Eucalyptus and Local Floral Honey
Z domačim medom eksperimentiram že dolgo. Sprva sem ga začela uporabljati kot hranljiv balzam za razpokane ustnice, nato kot masko in kasneje še kot čistilo za obraz. O uporabi za vsakodnevno čiščenje obraza sem prebrala že ogromno pozitivnih komentarjev, a mene je popolnoma navdušil šele, ko sem preizkusila ekološko pridelan evkaliptusov med znamke Gepa, ki ga lahko kupite v Müllerju. Ta je že moj drugi. Na žalost ga ne prodajajo v vseh, v Ljubljani ga imajo na primer v BTC-ju in na Rudniku, v Müllerju na Čopovi pa ga nimajo. Vsaj pred enim mesecem ga niso imeli. Med je pridelan v Urugvaju ter je del pravične trgovine.
Gepa Organic Eucalyptus Honey
Surovi in nepredelan med vsebuje veliko učinkovin, med drugim vitamin C in nekatere vitamine B skupine, kot so B2 ali riboflavin, B6, B9 ali folat, B3 ali niacin, minerale, kot so kalcij, fosfor, železo, natrij, magnezij, kalij in še kaj. Vsebuje flavonoide, antioksidante ter deluje protibakterijsko in protiglivično. Evkaliptusov med pa ima še močnejše protibakterijsko delovanje, kar pomeni, da je odličen v boju proti aknam in pri celjenju ran. Sicer pa naj bi bil eden izmed najboljših manuka med, ki ga pridobivajo na drevesih čajevca. Ta še vedno ostaja na mojem spisku želja.
Med je tako nepogrešljiva sestavina za mastno in mešano kožo, kožo nagnjeno k nepravilnostim, po drugi strani pa je več kot odličen tudi za nego suhe kože. Med vlaži, pospešuje ohranjanje vlage in kožo mehča. Kožo ščiti, obnavlja, ohranja mladosten videz, varoval pa naj bi tudi pred sončnimi žarki. Sliši se krasno in verjemite, da tudi je!
Honey face wash and mask
Trenutno za nego obraza uporabljam že omenjeni evkaliptusov ter lokalni domači med, če se ne motim je cvetlični. Tekstura domačega je kar precej trda, evkaliptusov je bolj kremen in prijetnejši za uporabo. Načine uporabe sem že omenila, a naj opišem še postopek. Zvečer najprej odstranim ličila in nato na očiščen obraz nanesem malo več kot pol žličke medu. Nanesem le med ali pa ga zmešam skupaj z zmletimi ovsenimi kosmiči (recept) ali pa na primer pripravim antioksidantno masko. Čeprav najpogosteje uporabim le med. Nato ga pustim na obrazu pol ure, lahko tudi le 5 minut ali pa več. Sperem z vodo in nanesem serum in olje. Pa ne mislite, da ga je težko sprati, sploh ne! Čeprav je lepljiv se z lahkoto odstrani. Koža je po uporabi neverjetno mehka, navlažena in sijoča. Mehkoba kože je bila pri meni še posebej opazna po prvi uporabi evkaliptusovega medu.
No, uporabljam pa ga tudi zjutraj, kot čistilo za obraz, brez predhodnega čiščenja. Malo medu nanesem na obraz, zmasiram in sperem. Za lažje masiranje včasih dodam malo vode, za še boljše rezultate pa ga pustim na obrazu 5 minut, med tem pa se stuširam. 
Honey face wash, Eucalyptus and Floral Honey
Med uporabljam skoraj vsak dan, vsaj za hitro čiščenje obraza, in ne morem ga dovolj priporočati! Še posebej preljubi evkaliptusov med. Ob dnevih, ko se moji koža meša (beri postanem cela mozoljasta), ga zjutraj in zvečer nanesem kot masko in moja koža je zelo hvaležna. Ranice se hitreje zacelijo, rdečica oziroma brazgotine nastale zaradi mozoljev pa hitreje izginejo. Če imate brazgotine, ga le preizkusite. Poleg pa še krasno navlaži kožo.
Kot pri vseh izdelkih, pa bodite pazljive. Nekateri so lahko alergični na med in rezultati na koži bodo tako vse prej kot pa čudoviti.

Dobro, je zdaj vsem jasno, da obožujem med? :) Aja in da ne pozabim! Priporočam nepredelan in surov med, brez primesi, saj tak vsebuje vse naštete čudovite učinkovine. Predelanega, po možnosti tekočega trgovinskega medu pa se raje izogibajte, ker je včasih lahko le sladkana voda.

Oh honey, honey, honey! I've always loved products containing honey. They always smell good and work for my skin so I think it's finally time to give this magical ingredient a whole post.
Raw honey contains vitamin C and B like B2, B3, B6, B9, minerals like calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium, sodium and more. Honey contains flavonoids, antioxidants and it has anti-microbal and anti-fungal properties. At the moment I'm using two, one is homemade, local honey and the other one is my favourite - Eucalyptus honey from Gepa. As you may know, eucalyptus is known for its anti-septic, anti-microbal, anti-fungal properties so it works even better than my local honey. The other honey that has even more anti-microbal properties is manuka honey from manuka or tea tree. And it is still on my wishlist! 
Because of these amazing properties, honey is great for oily and combination skin but also for dry skin. Honey acts as a moisturizer, it has the ability to absorb and retain moisture and this helps in keeping the skin well hydrated, fresh and supple. It works as an anti-aging treatment and also helps protect from UV rays. It sounds great and it actually really is!
I love using honey as a face mask and a face wash. In the evenings I first remove all my makeup and dirt from the day and then apply some honey on freshly cleansed face. Sometimes I mix it with some ground oats (honey and oatmeal mask) or some other ingredients, like green tea and cocoa (antioxidant mask), but most of the times I use it alone. If I have time or my skin is acting up I leave it on for half an hour. Then I rinse it off with water which removes it quickly and so easily. If I'm honest, the first time I really didn't expect that and was so pleasantly surprised. Honey leaves my skin really, really soft, smooth and moisturized. The first time I've tried the eucalyptus honey I couldn't believe the softness of my skin! I also use honey as my morning cleanser and sometimes I leave it on for 5 minutes for even better results.
I use this gorgeousness almost every day and I can't recommend it enough! My skin looks brighter, smoother and overall healthier. And when I get some annoying pimples, the honey heals them faster and works some magic on fading nasty scars. And it also moisturizes my skin. That's a win win in my book! 
I love honey and I encourage everyone to give it a go! I hope you're not allergic! :)


Love,
Jana

Gaia Creams Palmarosa & Thistle Raw Face & Body Cream


"Globoko in učinkovito očiščevalna krema za obraz in telo, ki vzpostavlja ravnovesje kože. Ta čarobna krema deluje v harmoniji s kožo in hitro ter naravno zmanjša produkcijo sebuma in izgled razširjenih por. Krema spodbuja novo rast celic, izenačuje ten kože, zmanjšuje akne, brazgotine in gube."
Gaia Creams Palmarosa & Thistle Vegan Face & Body Cream
Gaia Creams Raw Face & Body Cream
Gaia Creams Palmarosa & Thistle Raw Face & Body Cream* kot glavni učinkovini vsebuje palmaroso in pegasti badelj. Palmarosa je hitro rastoča talna rastlina, ki v zrelosti požene majhne cvetove, vendar pa se jo za pridobivanje eteričnega olja nabira preden razvije cvetove. Njena značilnost oziroma sposobnost je regeneracija celic. Torej je odlična za obnovo novih celic, to pa zagotavlja mladosten videz kože. Uravnoveša kožo in lasišče, zmanjšuje akne, brazgotine in dermatitis. Palmaroso zaradi prijetnega vonja imenujejo tudi vzhodnoindijska geranija. Za to rastlino sem pvič slišala, pegasti badelj pa poznam že od prej. Pegasti badelj je zdravilna rastlina, ki je odlična za razstrupljanje in čiščenje jeter. Semena vsebuje mešanico različnih spojin, imenovana slimarin, ki varuje jetra. Ima tudi antioksidacijske lastnosti. Raziskave naj bi pokazale, da je učinkovit tudi v boju proti fotostaranju (staranje, ki je posledica izpostavljanja sončnim žarkom) ter kožnemu raku. Torej dobra izbira za prihajajoče sončno obdobje. Seveda poleg kreme, ki vsebuje zaščitni faktor. 
Gaia Creams Palmarosa & Thistle Raw Face & Body Cream
Krema, ki jo je Anna ustvarila že veliko pred samim nastankom znamke poleg omenjenih dveh eteričnih olj vsebuje še, karitejevo maslo, olje svetlina in konoplje, sončnično, jojobino, kokosovo olje in še nekaj dodatnih izvlečkov zdravilnih rastlin. Sestavine so ekološkega izvora in vegan. Ne vsebuje vode in tako gre za bogato hranljivo kremo, ki ne maši por, pravzaprav kožo uravnoveša in preprečuje nastanek aken. Krema oziroma balm je zaradi vsebnosti olj mastna a kože ne masti ampak jo pusti sijočo in navlaženo, brez kakršnegakoli zategovanja. Kožo pomiri tako s sestavinami kot tudi s sladko cvetličnim vonjem, ki ima zelo rahel pridih citrusov. Vonj je naraven in nevsiljiv.
Gaia Creams Palmarosa & Thistle Cream
Gaia Creams Palmarosa & Thistle Face & Body Cream swatch
Krema je primerna za obraz in telo, uporabljam jo le za obraz in vrat, občasno tudi za komolce, sicer pa mi jo je škoda za telo. Bi jo porabila v enem tednu. Zame je edina "negativna" stran rok uporabe, ki je kratek, a s hranjenjem v hladilniku ga lahko malce podaljšamo. Po drugi strani pa tako ne vsebuje nobenih škodljivih konzervansov.
Krema je primerna za vse tipe kože, tako za mladostniško kot zrelo, še posebej se mi zdi super za mešano in mastno kožo. In ja, nujno potrebujete kakšno kremo z vašim imenom na embalaži. :) Na voljo tukaj.


Translation
"Deeply and effectively purifiying, re-balancing and repairing face and body cream. This magical raw cream works in harmony with your skin and quickly and naturally reduces sebum production and the appearance of enlarged pores. It promotes new skin cell growth, evens skin tone, clears acne, scars and wrinkles."
Gaia Creams Palmarosa & Thistle Raw Face & Body Cream* contains beautiful 100% organic, vegan and ethical ingredients. Two active ingredients are palmarosa and thistle. Palmarosa is a wild growing grass with small flowers. It is harvested before the flowers appear. Palmarosa oil is known for balancing the hydration levels and stimulating cell regeneration. It balances production of sebum and keeps the skin supple and elastic. It helps with clearing up acne, dermatitis and scars. Thistle is an amazing herb that contains silymarin which works wonders for treatments of liver diseases. It is great for detoxifying. Studies have shown that it can also prevent photo-aging and skin cancer.
This lovely cream also has shea butter, evening primrose, hemp, safflower, jojoba oil and some other gorgeous stuff. It doesn't contain water so it's actually a balm. I love the balmy texture, it goes on so smooth. You can imagine that it is oily but it doesn't break me out, not at all! It leaves my skin moisturized, glowy and it just calms my skin. Also has quite a pleasant scent, sweet and floral, maybe with a hint of citrus. Nice, natural and light scent.
The only "negative" thing for me would have to be its shelf life, which is short but that also means it doesn't contain any nasty preservatives. 
This raw cream can be used on young and mature skins, I think it's especially great for combination and oily skin. All I have to say is, you need a product that has your name on it okay?! :) You can buy it here.


Lots of love,
Jana

Schmidt's Natural Deodorant


Danes bo govora o deodorantih. Vedno sem imela težave z njimi in odkar sem začela uporabljati naravne, se problemi niti malo niso zmanjšali. Le še povečali! Večina naravnih deodorantov po mojih izkušnjah ne deluje, sploh ne. A mislim, da sem končno našla enega, ki deluje. In to celo na meni! I'm a bit of a sweaty betty okay?! :) 
Schmidt's Deodorant Ylang-ylang + Calendula, Lavender + Sage, Bergamot + Lime
Ja, to so deodoranti. Tako je, v lončkih so. Morda nenavadno a v zadnjem času so postali kar popularni in od vseh sem slišala le pozitivne ocene. Schmidt's Deodorant je ameriška znamka naravnih deodorantov, ki ne vsebujejo škodljivih sestavin, kot so aluminijeve soli, propilen glikol, parabeni in ftalati. Na tem predelu telesa je po mojem mnenju nujno, da uporabljamo čim bolj naravne izdelke, saj veste kako vsi povezujejo raka na dojkih in škodljive sestavine v deodorantih oziroma antiperspirantih. Zato vam pa danes predstavljam učinkovite naravne deodorante. :)
Bergamot + Lime* - diši zelo limetasto, zelo sveže, super za poletje.
Lavender + Sage* - diši po sivki, pomirjujoč vonj.
Ylang-Ylang + Calendula* - prevladuje sladek vonj ylang ylanga s komaj zaznavnim cvetličnim vonjem ognjiča.

Vsi trije delujejo a ostredotočila sem bom na zadnjega, saj ga uporabljam skoraj vsakodnevno.
Schmidt's Deodorant Ylang-ylang + Calendula
Vsebuje 8 sestavin: karitejevo in kakavovo maslo, sodo bikarbono, arrowroot (maranta) prah, vitamin E, eterično olje ognjiča in ylang ylang ter ekstrakt hmelja. Deodorant ima teksturo gostega balma, včasih se celo malo drobi. Vsakemu lončku deodoranta je zaradi tega priložena majhna spatula s katerim deodorant dobim ven iz lončka in ga nato s prstom nanesem na očiščeno in suho kožo. Balm se ob stiku s kožo stopi in krasno razmaže. Ne pušča nobenega občutka mokrote, deodorant kožo pusti rahlo sijočo in se hitro posuši. Pravzaprav se običajno takoj po nanosu oblečem, kar pri drugih deodorantih ni bilo mogoče.
Schmidt's Deodorant Ylang-ylang + Calendula
Uporabljam ga že skoraj dva meseca in moram reči, da deluje. Seveda ne preprečuje znojenja, čeprav sem brala, da se nekatere zaradi sode manj potijo. Preprečuje pa neprijeten vonj. Res je, da ga včasih čez dan nanesem ponovno a to je le moja "fobija", da ne bi slučajno smrdela. :) Čeprav mislim, da je ob bolj stresnih dnevih dobro, da ga nanesem še enkrat, vsakodnevno pa po tem ni potrebe. Zvečer še vedno dišim in včasih me tudi po urah hitenja po mestu preseneti, da ga pri preoblačenju v trenirko še vedno zavoham. Upam, da me bo ob vročih dneh tudi tako navdušil!
Schmidt's Natural Deodorant Ylang-ylang + Calendula
Negativna stran je, da pušča sledi na belih oblačilih. 
Druga negativna stvar bi bila lahko preobčutljivost kože na sodo bikarbono, česar sem se na začetku tudi sama bala in zato tudi dolgo odlašala z nakupom deodorantov, ki jo vsebujejo. A bila sem zelo pozitivno presenečena, tudi nanos po britju mi ne povzroča nobenih težav, nobene rdečice ali srbečice! 
Tretja stvar, ki jo velja omeniti je nanos s prsti. Seveda bi mi bilo ljubše, če bi bil deodorant v stiku a saj veste kako je, vsega se navadimo. Poleg tega se mi zdi, da ga tako porabim tudi veliko manj kot bi ga sicer.
Zadnja pa je še cena. Sicer deodorant sam po sebi niti ni tako drag, 6 €, a skupaj s poštnino znaša 13 €. Kar drago, kajne? Ne glede na to, ga bom kupila ponovno in če iščete dober deodorant, po možnosti naraven, potem nedvomno preizkusite tega. Vsaj ne boste za zanič deodorante zmetale toliko denarja, kot sem ga jaz. :)

Translation
Let's talk natural deodorants, shall we? I guess we all have problems with them, it's so hard to find a good one, like mascara, am I right? :) But there are some outstanding products and Schmidt's Deodorant deodorants are exctacly that. They just work! 
It's almost two months since I've started using the Ylang-Ylang + Calendula deodorant* and I really love it. It has a sweet scent of ylang ylang with a slight hint of floral calendula essential oil. It contains shea and cocoa butter, baking soda, arrowroot powder, vitamin E, essential oils and hop extract. Deodorant comes in a glass jar with a small spatula which is beyond useful. Deodorant has a hard balmy texture and without the spatula my life wouldn't be the same! It makes it so easier. :) Okay, so, I scoop some deodorant with the beloved spatula and than spread it with my finger. Easy! It melts right onto the skin and leaves it soft and a bit shinny. Usually I can dress almost immediately, I have no problems with sticky or wet armpits like I've always had.
As you know, this is deodorant not antiperspirant so it won't prevent sweating but it does prevent funky smells. I can't lie, sometimes I reapply it throughout the day, better safe than sorry smelly right? :) I can't help myself, if I'm having a bit of a stressful day I reapply it but for everyday use I don't and I love it! In the evenings I still smell it on me and sometimes it really surprises me when I'm running around the city and when I finally change into my sweatsuit at home, the smell is still there. I really hope it will also work like that when the summer comes!
All that in mind I have to mention some negatives. First is that deodorant leaves stains on white clothes. Some could also have problems with Baking Soda. That is the main thing why I haven't tried these types of deodorants sooner, but you know what, I don't have any problems! No redness or itchiness, even when I apply it after shaving! There is also this thing about the jar and using your fingers. I'd definitely prefer the stick but I quickly got used to it and I think I also use less that way. So not really a negative after all. :)
If you're on the lookout for an effective natural deodorant, definitely try one of the Schmidt's natural deodorants! They have five scents and if you're not into sweet ylang ylang then you can go for the calming Lavender + Sage* or maybe the fresh smelling Bergamot + Lime* which will be perfect for hot summer days. 

Have a great weekend!

Favourite Natural Makeup Tag


Time for a new tag so this post will be in English. The beautiful Amber tagged me to do her lovely Favourite Natural Makeup Tag. Thanks dear! <3
Favourite Natural Makeup Tag
What is your favorite foundation?
I’m sure my regular readers know the answer to this! It’s the Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation in Blondie. I’ve been using it for years, it was my first mineral foundation and actually the only one I’ve tried. I’ve been also eyeing the Everday Minerals one, I’ll have to try it one day!
Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation Blondie
What type of foundation do you prefer - mineral, liquid, or cream?
Mineral. I’ve never been a fan of liquid foundations but I've been on the mineral one for so long I think it's time to venture out a bit. Check out my post about it here.

Have you found a favorite natural mascara?
I haven’t tried a lot of natural mascaras but I really liked the Benecos Natural Multi-Effect Mascara. It made super nice lashes but it did smudge a bit so I guess I’ll just have to keep looking.

In your opinion, what company makes the best pigments for eye shadow?
Okay this is not the question for me because I rarely use eyeshadows. :) But I’d like to try the new Lily Lolo’s pressed eyeshadows.

Have you tried to make any of your own natural makeup? If so, how did it turn out?
I don’t know if this actually counts but I mixed an Alverde loose pigment blush with beeswax, castor, coconut and argan oil and made a cream blush. I used to much beeswax so the blush is quite hard, next time I'll have to use lees of it.

Alverde Mineral Rouge, Nordic Berry
What makeup item was the hardest to switch over to a natural alternative?
Mascara. Definitely!

Do you have any holy grail natural or non-toxic makeup products?
I’m so boring but I'll have to say Lily Lolo foundation. :)

What is your go to non-toxic lip product?
I really like the Benecos lipstick in Peach, beautiful everyday colour. The Alverde Nadja is also one of my favourites. And if we’re already talking about lipsticks, I really wanna try Ilia lip products, they look beautiful!

Benecos Peach, Alverde Nadja lipstick
What is your favorite natural cosmetics brand?
I’ll have to go with the same answer as Amber, I don’t have a favourite natural makeup line because I haven’t tried enough from each brand to pick a favourite. :)

There you have it, hope you liked it!

I tag:
 Livvy from 2nd Nature Beauty
Liz from Smells Like a Green Spirit
Nicole from Eco Chic Beauty Diva
 Ru from Short, Small & Sweet
Sabrina from Chickweed and Blush


Love,

Porabljeni izdelki #11


Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation, Blondie - vedno na zalogi, obožujem jo! Ocena.

Dr. Hauschka Rose Nurturing Bath Essence - čudovita esenca za kopel, ki je del tega seta. Kože ne izsušuje ter prekrasno diši po vrtnici. Bi kupila večjo embalažo.

Nourish Balance Nutritious Peptide Serum - prijeten serum za obraz od katerega pa sem pričakovala več, zato ga ne bom kupila ponovno. Oceno si lahko preberete tukaj.

Essence I Heart Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara - odlična maskara za tako nizko ceno. Imam že novo. Več tu.

BenecosNatural Multi-Effect Mascara - najboljša naravna maskara, kar sem jih preizkusila! Edina negativna stran je, da se čez dan razmaže na spodnji veki. Nisem se še odločila ali bom ponovila nakup. Ocena.

Essence Eyeliner Pen Extra Longlasting - super in poceni eyeliner, sem ga že kupila ponovno.

Acure Advanced Triple Moisture System Body Lotion, Mandarin Orange - najboljši losjon za telo! Ima prekrasen svež vonj po pomaranči in je zelo vlažilen. Trenutno uporabljam Acure losjon s sivko, a naslednjič ga bom zagotovo kupila ponovno. Več si preberite tukaj.

Deep Steep Body Butter, Tangerine Melon - še en odličen losjon oziroma maslo za telo! Rada bi preizkusila kar vse njihove vonje, res imajo odlične izdelke za nego telesa. Ocena.

Cobio Kokosovo olje - nič novega, moja stalnica. Uporabljam za odstranjevanje ličil, nego las, telesa in ustne votline, za kuhanje, za uživanje, praktično za vse. :)

Le Couvent des Minimes Hand Cream - dobila za darilo, ne bom kupila ponovno, ker ni popolnoma cruelty-free. Krema pa niti ni tako naravna kot se zdi, enako kot L'Occitane, pa tudi vlažilna ni.

Natura Siberica Tonic Shower Gel - zelo všečen gel za prhanje, več o njem si lahko preberete tukaj.

Acure Moroccan Argan Stem Cell + Argan Oil Shampoo - stalnica! Obožujem ga, prav tako tudi balzam iz iste linije. Ocena.

Madara Colour & Shine Shampoo - ni me prepričal. Več tukaj.

Alverde Gel za tuširanje, Jasmin - prekrasno dišeč gel, ki bi ga z veseljem kupila ponovno!

Acure Moisturizing Root Repair - globinska maska za lase, ki pa po mojih izkušnjah ni prav nič globinsko vlažilna. Acure balzam mi lase veliko bolj navlaži kot pa maska, nad tem izdelkom sem bila res razočarana. Moja ocena tu.

Translation
Quick empties post. In love with my Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation, Coconut oil, Acure Shampoo and Body Lotion in Mandarine Orange. I also loved the Deep Steep's Body Butter, I have to try more scents, this one was so lovely! And that Alverde Wash Gel in Jasmine is beautiful! So sad it was limited edition. I was disappointed with Acure hair mask, it just didn't work for me, I have way better results with their orange conditioner! Madara shampoo was also not that great.
And that is it. :)

Enjoy!

Izdelka tedna #15



Ecoya Lip Balm, Deep Steep Moisture Stick Passion Fruit Guava

Deep Steep Moisture Stick Passion Fruit Guava
Vsestranska krema oziroma maslo v obliki stika. Imam močan in zelo sladek, tropski vonj, diši po guavi. Vsebuje sestavine, kot so sončnično in kokosovo olje, karitejevo in kakavovo maslo, ekstrakt marakuje in guave, čebelji vosek. Kremico uporabljam predvsem za nočno nego rok in ustnic. Ker je v obliki stika, je res zelo preprosta za uporabo, kar je občasno ob večerih nadvse priročno. :) Hitro se vpije v kožo, jo krasno navlaži in zmehča. Super pa je tudi za stopala in komolce!

Ecoya Lip Balm
Balzam za ustnice luksuzne avstralske znamke Ecoya vsebuje olje makadamije in pšeničnih kalčkov, avokadovo olje, karitejevo maslo, čebelji vosek, manuka med, eterično olje poprove mete (pepermint) in vitamin E. Balzam je zelo vlažilen pa še lepo in sveže diši po meti. Všeč mi je črna tubica, še ljubši pa mi je pečatni žig na škatlici. Zelo lep detajl! In če že omenjam embalažo, pozimi balzam ni bil najbolj priročen, ker so se masla strdila in balzam je bilo iz tubice skoraj nemogoče iztisniti. A ob trenutnem vremenu, je odličen!

This week I've been loving Deep Steep Moisture Stick Passion Fruit - Guava. It has a strong and sweet tropical scent, it smells kinda like guava. The scent really grow on me! It contains coconut and sunflower oil, shea and cocoa butter, passion fruit and guava extract, beeswax and some more. I love using it in the evenings on my hands and lips. It absorbs quickly and moisturises really well. It's also great for dry elbows and feet!
Next product is a Lip balm from the beautiful and luxurious brand Ecoya from Australia. It contains macadamia nut oil, shea butter, avocado oil, beeswax, manuka honey, wheat germ oil, vitamin E and peppermint oil. Lip balm is very moisturizing and it also smells nice and fresh. I guess I like mint smelling products on my lips, didn't know that. :) I like the sleek black packaging but the one thing I'm in love with is the "wax" seal on the box. I love small details like that! The one thing I wasn't to keen on is in fact the packaging which isn't the best for winter because the butters solidify and it's kinda hard to squeeze out the balm from the tube. But at the moment I've been really enjoying it!

What have you been loving this week? :)
