Lily Lolo Natural Lipstick French Flirt

Tuesday, 19 August 2014


Vas zanima katera je moja trenutno najljubša šminka? Brez dvoma si ta naziv zasluži  Lily Lolo French Flirt*. Gre za prekrasen! rdeč odtenek s toplim podtonom, ki se odlično poda toplim tenom kože. Šminka je rdeča a ne kričeče rdeča, je srednje do temno rdeče barve in odlično pigmentirana. Z večimi nanosi lahko dosežemo izredno intenzivnost. Šminka je sijoča, ni mat in na moje veliko veselje ne vsebuje nobenih bleščic.

Šminka je zelo mehka, kremna in super vlažilna, je ena izmed tistih čudovitih šmink, ki ne poudarijo suhih ustnic ter jih ne izsušijo. Je srednje obstojna - nekaj ur, enakomerno izgine in ne bledi na kožo okrog ustnic. Krasno, kajne?
Šminka sicer pušča sledi in pri jedi izgine, no, ne kar takoj, ampak pri večjem obroku pa zagotovo. A to je že popolnoma normalno. Kar pa me je pred kratkim izjemno presenetilo in navdušilo je, da čeprav je šminka pri pitju kave (tiste Simobilove na Prešernovem trgu. Kave niti ne pijem pogosto a ta je res dobra!) pustila sledi na pokrovčku, je še vedno ostala na ustnicah skoraj kot, da ne bi ničesar pila! Po kratkem sprehodu po mestu sem se nato hitro slikala (na žalost s telefonom) in lahko vidite, da ni nobenega robu in da je šminka še vedno enakomerno nanešena. Mislim, da bom potrebovala še kakšen odtenek. :) Zelo priporočam! Na voljo tukaj.
Aja in, če vas morda zanima, Lily Lolo je ustvarila BB kremo! Komaj čakam, da jo preizkusim, upam, da bo tako odlična kot mineralna podlaga.<3

Meet my favourite lipstick, the Lily Lolo Natural Lipstick in French Flirt*. A gorgeous! mid- to deep-toned red shade that goes perfectly with my warm skin tone. If you have warm undertone you need this lipstick, trust me! (photos don't do it justice) French Flirt is a warm red, not a true bright red, it's such a pretty warm colour. Love it! It also doesn't contain any glitter or shimmer, it's not matte but has a nice shiny finish.
Lipstick is super pigmented, incredibly creamy, soft and very moisturizing. It's one of those lipsticks that doesn't cling on to dry patches and it doesn't dry out your lips. French Flirt has a good lasting power, it lasts a couple of hours, but the thing that really impressed me was that it doesn't bleed or feather and it disappears evenly which is another thing I love about it!
Although it leaves a stain and it wears off while eating (if you only snack it's okay, the lipstick stays put), I recently found out how long lasting it really is. I was drinking a coffee to-go and the lipstick did leave a stain all over the lid but at the same time my lips looked great! Wow! I was so impressed that I took a quick selfie to show you - it looks good, don't you think? I'm gonna need some more shades, I highly recommend it!
Oh and have you heard, there's a Lily Lolo BB Cream on the block, can't wait to try it! I hope I'll like it as much as their mineral foundation! :)


With all my love,
Jana

Stop! Porridge Time!

Saturday, 16 August 2014


Amarant. Trenutno moja glavna in najljubša sestavina zajtrka. Dolgo, predolgo nisem vedela kaj naj počnem z njim. Preizkusila sem "kokice", ki niso nikoli uspele, v glavno jed ga nisem nikoli vključila, na sladke stvari pa se niti spomnila nisem. Dokler nisem odkrila, da ga lahko skuham na enak način kot ovsene kosmiče in tako sem navdušena nad njim, da sem že kupila novo vrečkico. Če mi sledite na Instagramu, potem ste jed že videli, odlična je in upam, da jo preizkusite.

Potrebujete:
- amarant,
- mleko,
- banano,
- brusnice (neobvezno) in
- cimet.
Vegan Amaranth Porridge with Fruit
Prvi korak v pripravi je, da večer prej namočite amarant. Zjutraj ga stresite v cedilo, sperite z vodo in dajte v posodo, kjer boste kuhali. Namakanje oreščkov, zrnja, semen in stročnic je zelo pomembno! Z namakanjem se nevtralizira velik del fitinske kisline, ki blokira absorpcijo mineralov. Poleg boljše absorpcije pa jih tako tudi lažje prebavimo.
 Namočenemu amarantu nato dodajte malo vode in mleka, razmerje med amarantom in tekočino je nekje 1:2 oziroma 1:1,5. Ali pa kar malo na približno, saj tekočino še vedno lahko prilijete. Namesto mleka lahko uporabite le vodo, meni je vedno boljši okus, če dodam še mleko. Kuhajte približno 10 do 15 minut, dodajte narezano banano in brusnice, premešajte in pustite 5 minut. Skupni čas kuhanja je približno 15 do 20 minut, odvisno od želene gostote.
Amaranth Porridge
Amarantovi kaši dodajte še cimet in jed je končana. Seveda pa na koncu lahko dodate še sadje, oreščke, kar želite. Jaz sem poleg cimeta dodala še maline in konopljina semena. Nom nom nom!

Yup, I'm gonna talk about porridge again! :) If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I tried Amaranth porridge for the first time this week! And let me tell you, this stuff is super delicious and I hope you try it! 
For a long, long time I didn't know what to do with amaranth. I tried "popcorn" but it never turned out good, it just didn't pop so I let that go. I've never tried amaranth risotto and things like that which is funny becase I love using different grains for risotto, not just rice. I also never even think of using it in sweet dishes like the one I'm gonna show you today. You can use these small seeds of amaranth just like you would oats, cook them and eat them. I'm so impressed with how the porridge turned out that I already bought a new pack. :) But enough of that and let's get cooking!
All you really need is Amaranth, Milk (I always use vegan milk, here I used Rice Milk), one Banana, Cranberries (optional) and Cinnamon. You don't need any sweeteners, I find banana is enough but you can add some honey or something similar. Okay so, the first thing you need to do is soak up your amaranth overnight. This is really important and you shouldn't skip this step! Soaking grains, nuts, seeds and legumes makes them easier to digest, it allows enzymes and bacteria to break down and reduce phytic acid which blocks the absorption of minerals. Soaking is super easy yet so effective. 
So, after you soak your amaranth overnight, rinse it off with fresh water and put in your saucepan. Add some water and milk, I usually use both but you can use just water or milk. Ratio between amaranth and liquid is somewhere between 1:2 or 1:1,5. I don't measure it so I don't know for sure. :) You can always add some more so don't go overboard. Cook for about 10 to 15 minutes and then add a banana and cranberries. Cook some more, for about 5 minutes and that is it! Now you can also add some toppings. I always add cinammon and here I also mixed it some raspberries and hemp seeds. Nom nom nom!


Love, Jana

Green Mask

Tuesday, 12 August 2014


V tej objavi sem omenila mojo trenutno najljubšo masko za nego obraza, zeleno masko, ki je odlična predvsem za mastno ter mešano kožo, in zato jo bom bolj podrobno predstavila.
Green Mask, Green Clay, Neem Powder, Honey
  Zelena glina je bogata z minerali, kot so železo, silicij, magnezij, kalcij, cink in tako naprej. Glina vpija odvečno maščobo, odstranjuje nečistoče in toksine, oži pore, revitalizira kožo in spodbuja naravno obnovo celic. Glina kožo tonira, učvrsti in spodbudi cirkulacijo krvi. Trenutno za pripravke uporabljam glino, ki sem jo dobila iz Grčije, imam pa tudi Biopark zeleno glino, ki je prav tako odlična.

Neem ali indijska melija je zimzeleno drevo z belimi cvetovi in plodovi, ki so ga odkrili v Indiji pred več kot 2000 leti. Velja za "Sveto drevo" in je zaradi izjemnih zdravilnih lastnosti največkrat uporabljena sestavina v Ayurvedski medicini. Več o njegovih zdravilnih učinkih na telo si lahko preberete tukaj. Uporabni so vsi deli rastlini, moj neem prah oziroma Bioparkov Neem prah vsebuje zmlete liste drevesa. Deluje antiseptično, antibakterijsko in antioksidantno. Zelo primeren je za nego nečiste kože, kožo z izpuščaji, rdečico, srbečico, neem omili videz brazgotin in hiperpigmentacije, pomiri in navlaži suho in razpokano kožo. Odličen je za vse tipe kože, tudi za kožo z dermatitisom.

Med je najboljši izdelek za nego kože kar sem jih preizkusila. Več o njem si lahko preberete tukaj, naj le povem, da je več kot odličen za vse tipe kože, kožo izjemno navlaži in pomiri, obenem pa deluje tudi antiseptično in čudovito vpliva na zmanjšanje aken in drugih nepravilnosti na koži.
Green Clay, Neem Powder and Honey Mask
Za krasno očiščevalno in vlažilno masko zmešajte pol žličke zelene gline in pol žličke neem prahu z eno žličko medu, nanesite na sveže očiščen obraz in pustite učinkovati 10 do 15 minut. Če ste morda alergični na med, potem namesto medu uporabite vodo, čaj ali olje. Masko najraje uporabljam po parni kopeli, ko je koža mehka in pore odprte. Tako vse zdravilne učinkovine prodrejo globlje v kožo in končni rezultat maske je še boljši. Po uporabi je koža navlažena, mehka in globinsko očiščena. Koža je bolj sveža, pore pa zožane. Masko uporabljam enkrat na teden, včasih tudi dvakrat.
Green Mask with Green Clay, Neem Powder and Eucalyptus Honey


Translation
In this post I mentioned my new favourite green mask and because I really love using it, I decided to write a post about it. It's a wonderful mask for which you only need three ingredients. If you have oily, acne-prone or combo skin, or if you just want a bit of a nice skin detox, then this mask will be perfect for you!
Green Clay is rich with minerals like iron, silicon, magnesium, calcium, zinc and so on. Clay absorbs and removes excess oil, draws out pollutants and gently tones for a deep down clean. It helps to shrink pores while also refreshing the skin. Perfect for oily and combination skin. At the moment I'm all about green clay I got from my friend who was in Greece, but I also have Green Clay from Biopark which is lovely as well.
Neem, also known as Nimtree and Indina Lilac is a tree with white flowers and fruits, discovered in India more than 2000 years ago. It's also known as "Sacred Tree" and due to its exceptional healing properties is one of the most common ingredients in Ayurvedic medicine. All parts of the plant can be used, my neem powder from Biopark contains ground leaves of the tree. Neem acts as an antiseptic, antibacterial and antioxidant. It's perfect for oily, acne-prone skin, it treats skin rashes, redness, itching, diminishes the appearance of scars and hyperpigmentation, it soothes and moisturizes dry skin. Neem is great for all skin types, even for eczema.
Honey is the best ingredient for my skin. I absolutely adore it! You can read more about my love for honey here, it works wonders on all skin types, it's moisturizing and soothing, it has antiseptic properties and therefore also amazing for acne-prone skin.
So for my gorgeous green mask, green in color and in ingredients, you'll need, half a teaspoon of green clay and the same amount of neem, and one teaspoon of honey. Mix all together, apply on freshly washed face and leave on for 10 to 15 minutes. If you are allergic to honey or you don't want to use it, you can use water, tea or oil. I love using this mask right after my facial steaming when my pores are softened and my skin is warm. That way all the gorgeous ingredients penetrate deeper into my skin and the end result is even better. Mask leaves my skin fresh, moisturized, soft, deeply cleansed and detoxified. I love using it once a week, sometimes even twice if my skin is not feeling to happy.


Much love,
Jana xx

Andalou Naturals Absolute Serum, 1000 Roses

Friday, 8 August 2014


Glede na to, da zadnje čase pogosto omenjam vrtnice, jih bom pa še danes. Predstavljam vam Andalou Naturals vrtnični serum za obraz primeren za občutljivo kožo.
Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses, Absolute Serum
Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Absolute Serum Sensitive
Serum, ki ne vsebuje glutena ter je primeren za vegane, vsebuje same krasne sestavine. Na izdelku je serum opisan kot "flower power for beautiful skin" in glavna roža v izdelku je seveda vrtnica. Vsebuje tako imenovane Alpine Rose Stem Cells, ki prodirajo globoko v kožne celice ter jih nahranijo, obenem pa blagodejno vplivajo na občutljivo kožo in jo pomirjajo. Druga aktivna učinkovina je 1000 Roses Complex, rožna voda in eterično olje vrtnice, ki prav tako pomirjata in mehčata tanko, suho in občutljivo kožo. Ker je serum osnovan posebej za občutljivo kožo, ne smem pozabiti na Skin Soothing Complex, mešanico učinkovin, ki zagotavlja zaščitni sloj, ki kožo vlaži. Blagodejno vpliva tudi na vnetja. Med njimi so hialuronska kislina, lubje magnolije, tradicionalno kitajsko zdravilo, ki ga že stoletja uporabljajo v različnih zeliščnih pripravkih, ekstrakt bosvelije, starodavne indijske rastline, ki je del ayurvedske znanosti in odličen za suho, zrelo in občutljivo kožo. Preprečuje nastajanje gub in deluje obnovitveno. Zadnja sestavine v kompleksu je še ekstrakt datljevih listov. Serum vsebuje tudi sestavine z antioksidantnim delovanjem, kot so olje granatnega jabolka, vitamin C, beli čaj, roobios, najpomembnejši pa je zagotovo BioActive 8 Berry Complex, kompleks, ki vsebuje acai, goji jagode, robide in druge močne antioksidantne jagode.
Andalou Naturals Absolute Serum 1000 Roses ingredients
Serum ima prijeten cvetličen vonj in je bolj redke konsistence, kot je za serume tudi značilno. Uporabljam ga zjutraj in zvečer. Na očiščen obraz najprej nanesem Thayers vrtnični tonik in nato eno ali dve kapljici seruma. Nežno ga vtapkam na kožo in nato nanesem kremo. Glede na to, da je serum primeren za občutljivo kožo, se mi zdi, da res pomirja in blaži vnetja. Že trkam na les, a ob uporabi seruma sem opazila, da imam kožo bolj čisto in gladko. Ter navlaženo. Je pa nadvse nenavadno, da me včasih ob nanosu rahlo zapeče, a občutek takoj izgine. Sicer pa se takoj vpije, je lahek, ne maši por in nasploh super za uporabo. Edina stvar, ki me moti je embalaža. Kot lahko vidite na spodnji fotografiji navoj hitro postane umazan, saj se na njem posuši serum, ki pri uporabi steče po embalaži. Prav tako bi želela, da bi bilo steklo temno ali pa vsaj prozorno, ker roza barva se kruši. In čeprav so mi všeč embalaže na pipeto, bi bilo morda boljše, da bi imel doziranje na pumpico. Sploh zaradi bolj tekoče teksture seruma in tako tudi navoj ne bi bil (tako) umazan.
Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Absolute Serum consistency
Andalou Naturals Absolute Serum Roses
Ne glede na embalažo, gre za krasen serum, ki ga priporočam vsem tipom kože. Moja je mešana in serum se zelo dobro razume z njo. :) Obožujem ga! Kupila sem ga tukaj, 30 ml stane malo manj kot 15€.

I guess I'm really obsessed with Roses because today's post also features a product containing them. :) Let me introduce the Andalou Naturals Absolute Serum for sensitive skin.
Gluten free and vegan rose serum contains some amazing ingredients. It's the "flower power for beautiful skin" and the main flower is Rose. Alpine Rose Stem Cells support skin's healthy vitality, resilience and youthful glow. It soothes, nourishes and transforms sensitive skin. Other active ingredient is 1000 Roses Complex - rosewater and rose essential oil which soothe and soften delicate, dry and sensitive skin. Serum is especially made for sensitive skin and the Skin Soothing Complex is all about that. It contains Hyaluronic Acid, Magnolia Bark, a traditional Chinese medicine used for centuries in various herbal concotions, Date Leaf Extracts and Boswellin extract from Boswellia, an ancient ayurveda Indian herbal medicine, often called as Indian Frankincense. Boswellia treats variety of skin irritations and it's great for dry, mature and sensitive skin. The complex provides a protective moisture barrier with sensitivity pathway blockers to alleviate inflammation and inhibit skin reactivity. Serum also contains lots of ingredients with antioxidant properties, like Pomegranate Oil, Vitamin C, White Tea, Rooibos, but the most important has to be the BioActive 8 Berry Complex with Acai, Aronia, Goji and some other amazing berries.
Serum has a nice floral scent and a light consistency, typical for serums. I use it in the mornings and evenings. On my freshly cleansed face I first spray some Thayers Rose Petal Toner and then apply one or two drops of the serum. I gently tap it onto the skin and then apply a face cream. It really soothes my skin and calms inflammation. I'm knocking on wood like crazy but my skin has become nicer, it just looks fresher, smoother and moisturized. The strange thing I find is, that it sometimes stings a bit when I apply it but that goes away immediately. It's quickly absorbed into the skin, the serum is light, it doesn't clog my pores and it's just nice!
The only negative thing for me is the packaging. As you can see on the photo above, the thread of the bottle gets dirty in no time, you constantly have to clean it. The other thing is the glass, I wish it was dark or at least transparent because the pink color started to peel off. And although I like pipettes, I think in this case the pump would be better.
Mind the packaging, it's a great product and I recommend it for every skin type. On my combination skin it works wonderful. I love it! I bought it here.


Love,
Jana

Eco Cosmetics Sunscreen SPF 30

Wednesday, 6 August 2014


Skoraj smo že pri koncu poletju, na žalost, a danes bom vseeno pisala o kremi za sončenje. Že nekaj časa sem želela preizkusiti izdelke nemške znamke Eco Cosmetics, tako da sem bila zelo vesela, ko sem prejela njihovo Kremo za sončenje z zaščitnim faktorjem 30*. Izdelek ni testiran na živalih, je primeren za vegane, ne vsebuje sintetičnih barvil, dišav, konzervansov in parabenov.
Aktivna sestavina kreme je titanium dioxide, mineralni filter, ki ni v nano delcih, kar je super, ker tako ne prodira v kožo. Ta velika pozitivna lastnost kreme pa je zelo negativna pri nanosu, saj je težko mazljiva. Poleg tega je bele barve in tako včasih na koži pusti rahlo siv videz, sploh na obrazu. Krema sicer vsebuje nekaj krasnih olj, kot so olivno in svetlinovo olje, olje riževih otrobov, muškatne vrtnice, makadamije in rakitovca, in čeprav obožujem olja, je mešanica vseh sestavin zelo mastna in oljnata. Krema je zelo težka in za dnevno zaščito moje kože obraza ni primerna. Več kot tri dni zapored je nisem nikoli nanašala, ker mi je rahlo mašila pore. Za zaščitno mastne kože pred soncem je sploh ne priporočam in menim, da je boljša le za uporabo na telesu. Potrebno je le malo več potrpljenja, da se krema vpije v kožo in da izginejo bele sledi. Ne glede na vse, je krema zelo učinkovita in deluje. Ko bi jo le lahko uporabljala vsakodnevno!

Sadly, we are almost at the end of the summer but that doesn't stop me from writing about a sunscreen. For a while now I wanted to try products from a German brand Eco Cosmetics and I was really happy when I got their Sunscreen in SPF 30*. It's cruelty free, vegan, without parabens, PEG, synthetic dyes, perfumes and preservatives.
The active ingredient is non-nano titanium dioxide, which is great because it doesn't penetrate into the skin but the big negative thing with non-nano mineral filters is, the sunscreen is difficult to apply. You really have to massage it in and it still can leave a whitish/grey residue, especially on the face. Sunscreen actually contains a few beautiful oils like olive, evening primrose, sea buckthorn, macadamia, rose and rice bran oil to name a few. And although I love oils, the mixture of this sunscreen is too heavy and oily for my face. My skin doesn't agree with it and on a daily basis I can't use it. I can only use it for about three days in a row because it slightly clogs my pores. Good for vacation, bad for everyday use. For oily skin I wouldn't recommend it and in general I think it's best to use it on the body. All in all, the sunscreen works, you just need to be a bit more patient when applying it. But I do wish it had a lighter consistency so I could use it everday.

Tell me, what is your favourite sunscreen? Have you tried anything from Eco Cosmetics?

Black

Sunday, 3 August 2014


Kot morda veste, imam rada bolj naraven videz ličenja, oči imam običajno poudarjene le z maskaro in svetlejšim senčilom v notranjih kotičkih očes. No, pred kratkim pa sem po dolgem času kupila črn svinčnik, Alverde Kajal Eyeliner. Svinčnik je zelo pigmentiran in kremen, prvi vtisi so odlični. In saj veste kako je, ko imaš nekaj novega in moraš hitro preizkusiti. No, jaz sem tako ustvarila zame malce bolj močan videz in se zato tudi odločila, da ga delim z vami. Saj ni nič posebnega a vseeno upam, da vam je všeč! :)

Translation
As you may already know, I love natural makeup. On my eyes I usually just use some mascara and light shimmery eyeshadow in the inner corners but last week I bought a new black eyeliner. I picked up the Alverde Kajal Eyeliner which is really pigmented, creamy and glides on so easily. And you know how it is when you have something new and you just wanna try it. So I did this makeup look and decided to share it with you. It's nothing special but I hope you like it! :)

Do you often use black eyeliner? Is it a part of your daily routine?

Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Toner

Friday, 1 August 2014


Že dolgo sem zvesta le eni vrsti tonika, rožni vodi. Le-ta zmanjšuje rdečico in vnetja, poživlja in osvežuje, uravnana pH ravnovesje kože, prečudovito diši ter je primerna za vse tipe kože. Preprosto obožujem jo in nasploh sem vedno zelo zadovoljna z izdelki, ki vsebujejo vrtnične cvetove. Toniki sicer niso ravno najbolj priljubljeni izdelki za nego obraza, tudi sama dajem več poudarka na ostale izdelke, a ne glede na to, si ne predstavljam, da bi bila brez. Pravzaprav je tonik oziroma hidrolat prvi izdelek, ki ga nanesem na očiščen obraz in zadnji, ko se naličim. Bolj ko razmišljam, res ne morem brez in trenutno z največjim veseljem uporabljam rahlo izboljšano verzijo vrtnične vode, Thayersov tonik.
Thayers Alcohol-Free Toner Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera
 Vsebuje čudovito, ekološko pridelano aloe vero, ki je morda najbolj znana po svojih hladilnih in pomirjujočih učinkovinah. Super za zdravljenje opeklin, razdražene kože, pomaga pri hiperpigmentaciji in nasploh gre za krasno sestavino, ki z rednim uživanjem dela čudeže. Med drugim tonik vsebuje rastlinski glicerin, ki kožo vlaži in ekološki nepozebnik, ki deluje adstringentno, kar pomeni, da oža pore, veča napetost kože in zmanjšuje njeno mastnost. Kar pa je najbolj pomembno je, da ne vsebuje alkohola! In četudi imate mastno kožo, izbirajte izdelke brez alkohola, ker pri redni uporabi ne naredi nič dobrega.

Če tonik primerjam z navadno, čisto vrtnično vodo, moram povedati, da na koži nisem opazila večjih sprememb. Še vseeno pa jo raje uporabljam prav zaradi dodanih sestavin. :) Kot vidite ima Thayers "old school" dizajn, ki je meni kar všeč, embalaža je preprosta in funkcionalna. Ima zelo majhno luknjico za doziranje in tako ni nobene skrbi, da bi poleg vatke polili še sebe. Meni sicer takšna embalaža tonikov ni všeč, jaz potrebujem razpršilo. Ne maram uporabljati vate, včasih mi ven udari ekološka ozaveščenost in zato jo uporabljam le za odstranjevanje laka za nohte pa še to pazim, da porabim le eno blazinico. Na srečo sem imela še mojo prejšnjo vrtnično vodo od Argane, ki je mimogrede odlična, in tako vsake toliko časa malo prelivam. Rožno vodo uporabljam vsak dan po jutranjem in večernem čiščenju obraza, po ličenju obraza za daljšo obstojnost in lepši videz mineralne podlage. Zelo, zelo prav pa pride tudi ob vročih dneh, ko nujno potrebujem malo osvežitve.
Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Alcohol Free Toner, Argana Rose Water
Glede na ogromno količino izdelka, tonik svetujem tistim, ki imate radi vonj vrtnice, 355 ml je ogromno! Na voljo tukaj, stane okoli 6€.


Translation
I've been a fan of rose water for a long time. I don't remember when I first started using it but I remember it was one from Melvita. They changed their formulation and added alcohol, a big no-no for me! And then the whole L'occitane and China market and animal testing happened and I was done with Melvita. Wow, okay, that's not the point of this post! Back to rose water. :) It reduces redness and inflammation, balances pH levels of the skin, it's so refreshing and invigorating, smells wonderful and it's suitable for all skin types. I simply adore it and always love products with rose petals. When it comes to skincare, toners aren't really my favourite products, I usually give more thought money to other bits but saying that I can't imagine being without a toner. It's actually the first thing I use on my freshly cleansed skin and the last when I'm done with my makeup. The more I think about it, the more I love it! 

At the moment I've been loving a bit of an improved version of rose water, the Thayers toner with the beautiful organic juice of aloe vera which is perhaps most known for its cooling and calming properties. It's great for damaged and burned skin, helps to reduce hyperpigmentation, all in all it's a fantastic plant. There is also vegetable glycerin, great for moisturizing and organic witch hazel, a natural astringent that minimizes pores, increases skin firmness and helps with oil balancing. And what is the most important thing for me is, the toner doesn't contain alcohol! Even though some of you might have oily skin it's best to choose products without alcohol because with regular use it doesn't do any good for the skin.

Ingredients aside I don't see any major difference on my skin when using simple, pure rose water. Nevertheless, I still love it just because of the added ingredients. :) As you can see, Thayers has that old school design which I quite like, the packaging is simple and effective. On the top it has a very small opening but I'm all about spray bottles. I don't like using cotton pads, every now and then my ecological awareness strikes out and because of that I only use them for removing nail polish and even then I usually use just one cotton pad. So fortunately for me I still had some Argana Rose water and when I finished it I just pour in some Thayers toner. Works perfectly. I always spray some on my face after my morning and evening face wash and after applying my makeup. But you know when I love it the most? When I'm hot and sweaty (TMI don't care), it's so refreshing and nice. :)

 Considering the big bottle, I recommend it to those of you who love roses. 355 ml is a lot when you don't like the scent. I bought it here.
