Ob razmišljanju o Blogmasu 2020 sem ugotovila, da seveda moram povedati, kaj je v 2020 navduševalo mene, vendar pa me je začelo zanimati tudi, katere so tiste stvari, ki navdušujejo vas. Kontaktirala sem 4 sledilke z Instagrama (kako je to smotan izraz! RES ga ne maram!), s katerimi pogosteje tudi počvekamo in za katere vem, da so fajn punce, ki jih resnično navdušuje svet lepote. Ana, Metka, Sabina in Tinkara tako danes z vami delijo svoj pogled na 2020 in lepotne bombončke, ki so jih letos najbolj navdušili.

Kako preživljaš to nenavadno jesen? Kaj je tisto, kar ti pomaga, da ostajaš pozitivna, ti prinaša veselje?

Ana: Iz 9-dnevnega načrtovanega popotovanja sem prišla na 3-dnevni skok do Benetk in nazaj. Seveda je bilo treba iti v outlet centre in vse drogerije tam 😀 In tako sem našla svojega favorita leta 2020.

Metka: Epidemija zelo slabo vpliva na moje psiho-fizično stanje. Zavestno sem se odločila, da ne več bolestno spremljam novic in poskušam odstraniti slabe slabe, negativne misli. Uživam v družbi moža in najine psičke, prakticiram čuječnost, berem, gledam dobre filme in uživam v svojih lepotnih ritualih. Te male radosti naredijo življenje lepše.

Sabina: Jesen se je začela super: septembra sva z dragim namreč šla na težko pričakovani dopust v Grčijo…definitivno highlight leta, po prihodu pa se je, tako kot vreme, situacija samo še slabšala, sredi oktobra smo ponovno začeli z delom od doma in padla sem v rutino. Iskreno, pogrešam tisti moj jutranji ritual pred ogledalom, da se naličim za v službo, pa čeprav je to samo podlaga, maskara in bronzer. Odkar smo doma, si ob nedeljah rada vzamem kakšno uro ali dve in si naredim ful glam makeup, da se takoj, pa čeprav samo za par ur, počutim bolje.

Tinkara: Osredotočam se na stvari za katere mi je v “normalnem”življenju ponavadi zmanjkalo časa-veliko pečem, hodim, urejam kotičke, ki že leta niso bili dotaknjeni 🤣, čistim ter brskam in iščem ideje za ureditev vsakega kotička najine hiše, v katero sva se ravno pred korono preselila 🙂 Si pa res že želim in komaj čakam, da se lahko končno malo uredim, naličim in grem med ljudi 🙂

Kako v mrzlih dneh skrbiš za svojo kožo? Jo kaj ekstra pocrkljaš?

Metka: S hladnejšimi dnevi sem pričela uporabljati bolj hranljive kreme – trenutno uporabljam Madarino Deep Moisture linijo (dnevno in nočno kremo). Po dolgem času sem ponovno v svojo nego vključila tudi kremo za predel okrog oči in opažam bolj spočito, napeto kožo. Rezultat me je prepričal, tako da bo ta korak v negi postal kar stalnica. Enkrat do dvakrat tedensko se pocrkljam tudi z masko. Moja najljubša je SVR A Microgommage Lift, ki poskrbi za piling efekt, obenem pa kožo razvaja. Po uporabi je koža res mehka, voljna, sijoča.

Sabina: Moja osnovna nega kože je sestavljena iz samo par izdelkov. Zvečer: dvojno čiščenje (oljni čistilec + čistilec na vodni osnovi) če nosim make up in/ali spf, tonik, serum za bledenje pigmentnih madežev in vlažilna krema, zjutraj pa: čistilec na vodni osnovi, tonik, vlažilna krema in spf. Cca 2x na teden uporabim še BHA serum ter enkrat na teden moji koži privoščim še malo maskanja.

Tinkara: Imam zelo suho in občutljivo kožo, zato je njena nega pozimi še toliko bolj pomembna. Zjutraj res dobro očistim kožo, tonika ne uporabljam(ker še dodatno izsuši kožo), nanesem Miss Alice serum Hey Gorgeous in Malincino dnevno kremo. Pri večerni negi pa v nočno kremo vmešam še malo arganovega olja ali pa namesto te kombinacije uporabim kremo od Glina.si, ki je ekstra mastna in mi je super kot nočna kremica.

ANIN TOP IZDELEK 2020

V Kiku sem zagledala puder v kamnu SPF 50 – Unexpected Paradise Powder Foundation Spf 50. Slučajno je bil res 50% znižan in so se mi oči kar zasvetile. Omejena kolekcija, torej odprodaja. Ker sem poleti kupila Artdeco SPF 50 in mi ni nekaj ustrezal (pretemen) in sem rekla, kaj pa je to 8 EUR. Kupila sem 2 odtenka in sedaj uporabljam temnejšega, ki mi je super na sončne kreme, nevtralizira belino in nekako obstane na koži. Kako bi bilo poleti, ko se bolj topim na vročini, ne vem.

Uporabljam light beige, ki je svetlejši od najsvetlejšega Artdeco. Res je zelo uporaben, tudi za na hitro, ga dam kar preko SPF in je to to.

Op M.M. : Seveda je beseda dala besedo in ko to bereš, je moj Kiko paket že na poti v Slovenijo – Ana je enablerka in influencerka v pravem pomenu besede 😀

METKIN TOP IZDELEK 2020

Letos me je navdušilo več izdelkov, tako da mi je res težko izbrali le enega. Najbolj izstopata emulzija z retinalom Geek&Gorgeous A Game 5 in maska/piling SVR A Microgommage Lift, ker prvega uporabljam skoraj na dnevni bazi, naj bo ta moj naj izdelek letošnjega leta.

Izdelek mi je padel v oči v skupini Ljubim kozmetiko; opazila sem, da ga uporabljajo in pohvalijo tudi nekatere lepotne influencerke na IG, ki jim zaupam. /…/ Zaradi vsakodnevne uporabe maske na delovnem mestu, so se mi na določenih delih obraza in vratu pojavile akne, ki so se mi s prejšnjo nego zelo dolgo zdravile, postvnetni madeži so bledeli zelo dolgo. Odkar uporabljam A Game 5, se mi akne veliko redkeje pojavijo (pa še to le na enem mestu, se pa sedaj zelo hitro posušijo), tudi rdeči madeži veliko hitreje bledijo.

Koža je občutno bolj gladka (je opazil in pohvalil tudi mož), pore na nosu ostajajo čiste. Opazila sem, da je tudi hiperpigmentacija pod levim očesom za odtenek manj izrazita. Na dolgi rok upam, da bodo tudi drobne gubice manj opazne. Naj omenim, da ga tudi mož z veseljem uporablja (samoiniciativno uporablja le izdelke, pri katerih hitro opazi učinke).

SABININ TOP IZDELEK 2020

Paula’s Choice BHA Liquid exfoliant je zmagovalec letošnjega leta. Kupila sem ga predvsem zato ker sem iskala serum, ki bo sčistil moje pore in izboljšal teksturo moje kože. Seveda čudežev ne pričakujem pri nobenem izdelku, ampak PC BHA resnično učinkuje. Ne rečem da so moje pore kristalno čiste – niso in nikoli ne bodo, ampak serum moji koži pomaga predvsem do lepše teksture, pa tudi moja kozmetičarka ima manj dela s čiščenjem moje kože, odkar ga uporabljam.

Sabinina častna omemba gre tudi Kiehl’s clearly corrective Dark spot solution, za katerega pravi, da je opazno zmanjšal madeže na njenem obrazu, ter CeraVe Hydrating cleanser, ki je postal stalnica za večerno drugo čiščenje.

TINKARIN TOP IZDELEK 2020

VICHY MINERALBLEND vlažilni puder. Moja koža je izjemno suha in nikakor nisem našla ustrezne podlage. Vsak puder ki sem ga nanesla se mi je grozno “svaljkal oz. luščil”, kljub temu da sem pred nanosom kožo ustrezno pripravila. Po pravici povedano, zato tudi od tega pudra nisem pričakovala nobenega čudeža..pa se je zgodil 🙂 Neverjetno kako lepo prekriven in hkrati vlažilen je. Večina pudrov mi je ustvarilo tak neprijeten film na obrazu, kot bi imela masko, vse me je zategovalo, pri MineralBlendu tega enostavno ni bilo. Kot bi nanesla lahko vlažilno kremo. Torej, njegova ultra lahka formula me je navdušila! Hialuronska kislina in naravna mineralna voda se kar stopita na koži. 

Še vedno pa govorimo o pudru in ne BB kremi, katere prekrivnost je mnogo slabša, zato mi je še toliko bolj všeč. Ta kombinacija odlične prekrivnosti in intenzivnega vlaženja me je res navdušila. 

In kaj si dame želijo za prihajajoče leto?

Ana: Da bom lahko šla vsaj na kavo s prijateljico. Ker trenutno se družim z mojim in staršema. Saj to je super, odlično, ampak ženske potrebujemo ženski čvek. In najboljši je v živo ob pijači 😀 In da seveda ostanemo zdravi, vsi, najmanj si želim, da bi starša zbolela. Realno imam vse, kar potrebujem, ob sebi ljudi, ki jih imam rada, zdravi smo, na toplem smo in nismo lačni ali bolni.

Metka: V prihajajočem letu si želim le, da se nočna mora s Covid-19 v glavni vlogi konča. Do takrat pa, da bi ostali vsi moji dragi še naprej zdravi. 

Sabina: Zelo skromne – samo zdravje! Vse ostalo bo že 😉

Tinkara: Moje želje so predvsem vezane na zdravje, kot verjetno večine od nas v teh trenutkih 🙂 Torej da se stanje čimprej vsaj nekoliko poleže, da lahko spet čimprej normalno zaživimo, gremo med ljudi in se družimo 🙂

Hvala, drage dame, da ste si vzele čas in z mano delile ne le top izdelke 2020, ampak tudi vpogled v vašo lepotno rutino ter vsakdan. Želim vam, da se vam želje za prihajajoče leto uresničijo – in glede na to, kakšne so, to pravzaprav želim vsem od nas!

Da pa vas do prihajajočega leta malo pocrkljam, se ne pozabi oglasiti na mojem IG, kjer te ponovno čaka nagradna igra v sklopu 3 objave tega Blogmasa. Čakajo te trije The Body Shop izdelki iz aktualnih limited edition prazničnih kolekcij, tako da se vsekakor splača sodelovati!

Do naslednjič, maham!

 

PR products best PR products

On this sunny Monday, I wanted to share a nice upbeat post. I went through my beauty stash and chose 10 PR products which I would  definitely buy myself. Basically, they are all really great products I enjoy using and will continue to use. I will also probably repurchase many of them.

PR product #1: La Roche-Posay Serozinc

PR products La Roche-Posay Serozinc

La Roche-Posay Serozinc has been helping me calm my skin after shaving or going at small pimples on my face. It also works great under make-up. I already almost used up one bottle and I already have a new one in stock. You can read my opinion and opinion of two of my readers about it *here*.

PR product #2: L’Occitane Terre De Lumiere eau de toilette

PR products L'Occitane Terre De Lumiere

L’Occitane Terre De Lumiere line is inspired by morning dawn. Personally, I find this to be a fresh and gentle fragrance very appropriate for upcoming spring and summer days. If you prefer stronger and more exotic fragrances, I suggest you check out the perfume from this Terre De Lumiere line.

PR product #3: Dr. Organic purifying shampoo with activated charcoal

PR products Dr. Organic shampoo with activated charcoal

I recently tested the Dr. Organic shampoo and balm with tea tree oil and really liked it a lot. Right now, I’m testing the entire line of Dr. Organic products with activated charcoal. I’m most impressed with the shampoo that really cleans my hair really well (you know that squeaky feeling that really clean hair get?) and prolongs the time between washes from two to three days.

PR product #4: Vichy Slow Age daily moisturizer

PR products Vichy Slow Age daily moisturizer

The Vichy Slow Age inspires me with the slow life philosophy which tells us to live happy and healthy. At the same time, they say it doesn’t mean we have to look the same at 25 and 45 years, like some other brands try to convince us. With my Slow Age daily moisturizer, I take some me time in the morning, apply it to a clean face and drink my lemon water while I wait for it to absorb. The cream is rich enough to feed and protect my skin during the day and still appropriate to wear under make-up. I won’t even start talking about the jar and the colors – beautiful, right?

PR product #5: Melvita L’Or Bio golden oil

PR products Melvita L'Or Bio golden oil

Melvita L’Or Bio golden oil has been a staple in my beauty routine for quite some time now. I use it on my face, hair, on my dry feet and elbows, to soften up the cuticles… there are almost infinite options of use. Besides the great texture and rich formula with five different oils, it never stops surprising me with the lovely fragrance. You can read more about it *here*.

PR product #6: L.O.V powder brush

PR products L.O.V make-up brush

This L.O.V powder brush convinced me at the moment we met. Not only does it look beautiful (which is less important but I still like looking at pretty products first thing in the morning), it’s also really soft and great at picking out any powder product. It’s large enough to use all over the face but I also occasionally use it for bronzer or blush.

PR product #7: Paese mattifying make-up base

PR products Paese mattifying primer

Paese mattifying base for about six months now and I’m slowly running out. With all the primers in my collection, this is another proff of how special this product really is. When applied, it creates a soft, velvety feeling to the skin and works great with almost all foundations. I apply the majority of the product on my forehead where I get the most oily. This primer does a great job of controling that.

PR product #8: Avon Mark Magix HD finishing powder

PR products Avon Mark Magiq HD powder

Avon Mark Magiq HD finishing powder is one of those products that have become a staple in my beauty collection. The formula is very light, clings well to the brush, mattifies the skin and doesn’t leave a white cast like some other finishing powders. It gets extra points for not having any smeel. I get quite artistic when applying my finishing powder and with the dust flying everywhere, this is an important topic for me.

PR product #9: Max Factor Lash Crown mascara

PR products Max Factor Lash Crown mascara

Today, I’m showing you this particular Max Factor Lash Crown mascara for the last time. It’s been six months since I started using it so it’s time to throw it away and go buy a new one. I think it’s the first mascara I ever completely used up before it dried up. This innovative brush makes sure that I don’t apply too much formula. The small brush on the other side makes it easy to coat the bottom lashes and the smaller lashes in the inner corner. You can read more about it *here*.

PR product #10: L.O.V Lipaffair Color&Care Brave Nudes lipstick (Angelina’s belief)

PR products L.O.V Brave Nudes Angelina's Belief

It’s only April but I already suspect that the L.O.V Color&Care Brave Nudes lipstick in the shade Angelina’s Belief will end up being my favorite bullet lipstick of 2018. It’s a strongly pigmented lipstick that feels very light on the lips. It has good staying power for a classical lipstick but doesn’t dry up the lips at all. This shade is pink with a slight coral undertone. I think it would look good with any skin tone.

These are the 10 PR products that impressed me so much I would happily buy them myself. Did you try any of them already? Until next time, stay beautiful!

autumn beauty products

Today, I’d like to share 10 beauty products that are entering my skincare routine this autumn and that I’m personally very excited about.

SKINCARE

autumn beauty products Vichy The Ordinary

Heating takes its toll on my skin and I often notice it becoming more dehydrated and the pores getting more and more enlarged – almost as if they’re trying to suck all the moisture out of the air? This year, I’ll be battling the dehydration with The Ordinary 2 % hyaluronic acid. This acid is normally present in our skin but we can replace it when we feel that our body cannot hold enough moisture. Don’t forget to lock it in place with an oil based product, be it a cream or a pure facial oil – my favorite right now is Yanumi! I’m also bringing back the Vichy Pore Purifying Clay Mask that comes in this nifty two-use packaging. It contains two mineral clays and I always feel like it sucks the impurities right off my face. I usually buy my Vichy products at the pharmacy.

BODY CARE PRODUCTS

autumn beauty products L'Occitane Terre de Lumiere L'Oreal Mythic Oil

L’Occitane is always present in my skincare. In autumn days, I prefer heavier scents and oily shower gel since I fell they give more moisture to my skin. This fall, I’ll be using the L’Occitane Terre de Lumiere shower gel that comes from the perfume line Terre de Lumiere. The perfume itself is a bit strong for me, but the shower gel and body lotion have a more gentle smell which is very pleaseant. Another product that is always in my routine is the L’Oreal Professionel Mythic Oil. I always apply some to my hair while they’re wet. Ocasionally, I’ll warm a few drops between my fingers and apply them to the ends of my hair when they feel particularly dry. After use, my hair are soft and shiny.

NAILS

Catrice Brown Collection autumn beauty products

If you haven’t had enough of the Catrice Brown Collection polishes on my Instagram, here they are again. These are not colors that I’d wear in the summer but the earthy tones are perfect for fall and winter. I have three out of five shades in the collection – left to right they are 01 Fashion Addicted, 03 Goddess of Bronze and 02 Sophisticated Vogue. The formula is quite thick so one coat will do. I like that because it usually means my manicure will last a bit longer.

FACE

autumn beauty products Golden Rose Paese, Trend it Up, Physician's formula

I like my make-up to be a bit softer in the colder months. Although the Physician’s Formula MuruMuru Butter Bronzer smells like coconut and reminds me of summer, it’s still lighter then most of my bronzers and gives me that slightly sunkissed look. I’ll also be reaching for Golden Rose highlighting stick (Bright gold). This cream highlighter is really soft and blends out beautifully. If I’m going for a more striking look, I’ll apply it twice, but otherwise two gentle sweeps on top of the cheekbones will do the job. Don’t forget – always apply cream products before setting your face, otherwise it can look quite unnatural.

In the summer, I barely use any blush, but now the Trend It Up powder blush (020) is making a comeback to my everyday make-up routine. The formula of these blushes is great, very gentle and blends out nicely. On top of that, the price is great as well. Last but not least, let’s not forget about a good primer. I usually stay away from silicone primers in the summer (since they do nothing for wear time of my foundation), but I tend to like them in the colder months. Paese make-up base is the first one on my list. Paese is a polish brand that’s been impressing me with their products lately and this primer is definitely one of them!

LIPS

autumn beauty products autumn lipstick colors

When speaking of autumn lips, I think of darker colors, but I also like to include at least one shade that I can just pop on and leave the building. This time, this will be the job of Avon lipstick (Extreme Mauve) which is a nice pink shade but not too crazy to wear around the office. Among reds, I chose the NYX Gloss (True Red). For special occasions and walks around town, I’ll go for the Catrice by Dawid Tomaszewski in the shade C01. These are great lipsticks for a great price!

These are the products that I’m going to be using for the next couple of months. Have you tried any of them yet? I’d also love to hear about at least one product you cannot imagine autumn without. Until next time, stay beautiful!
