Empties #8 – skin care & make-up

 

As mentioned on Monday, I split these empties into two parts so they are more manageable. You can read the first part about hair care and body care *here*, if you’re interested. Today, let’s start with the cleansers. I used up a whole bunch of cleansers. I can’t believe that used up the Biobaza 3in1 make-up removal and hydration cream – more than half a liter! It did a good job at removing my make-up. I would not purchase it again, because I prefer to try more different products (it took me more than 6 months to use this up!), but it’s really good value for money! I didn’t like the Neutrogena Hydro boost micellar water. It really burned my eyes and wasn’t all that successful at removing make-up. I talked about the Ole Henriksen African red tea foaming cleanser before *here* – it’s rich in antioxidants, smells amazing and leaves me feeling rejuvenated. A product I’d definitely repurchase. Last but not least, I tried the Real Chemistry Luminous 3 minute peel. Normally, I would try it on my face, but I tried it on my hand and it started peeling so terribly that I didn’t dare put it on my face. I don’t think I’d get this because it would scare me to death.

Kot sem omenila že v ponedeljek, sem tokrat objavo o izpraznjenih izdelkih razdelila na pol, sicer bi bila dolga kot maturantski esej. Prvi del o izdelkih za nego las in telesa si lahko prebereš *tu*. Danes začniva z izdelki za čiščenje obraza, ki sem jih porabila kar nekaj. Še sama težko verjamem, da sem do konca porabila Biobaza 3v1 odstranjevalec ličil in hidratantno kremo. V steklenički ga je namreč krepko čez pol litra, zato sem ga uporabljala več kot pol leta. Make-up je dobro odstranil, oči me niso skelele, tako da nimam bistvenih pritožb. Sama bi se naslednjič odločila za kakšnega drugega, vendar samo zato, ker rada uporabljam različne izdelke. Če iščeš najboljše razmerje med ceno in kakovostjo, je to vsekakor super izbira. Neutrogena Hydro Boost micelarna vodica mi ni bila všeč, ker me je pekla v očeh in ni bila prav nič učinkovita pri odstranjevanju ličil. O Ole Henriksen African Read Tea foaming cleanserju sem govorila že *tu*. Gre za izdelek, bogat z antioksidanti, ki ima čudovit vonj in mojo kožo pusti popolnoma prerojeno. Vsekakor izdelek, ki bi ga ponovno kupila. Preizkusila sem tudi Real Chemistry Luminous 3 minutni piling. Običajno bi izdelek nanesla neposredno na kožo obraza, tega pa sem najprej preizkusila na roki. Ker se mi je koža začela v trenutku obupno luščiti, si ga nisem upala nanesti na kožo. Ker sem prevelika reva, tega izdelka ne bi ponovno kupila.

I also went through a bunch of other skincare items. Starting off with Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. This was my second bottle and the most perfect daily moisturizer ever. Lightweight and refreshing, the formula absorbs quickly and gives me a nice canvas for my make-up. The pump is an extra bonus. Unfortunately, I kept this bottle unter my night lamp and it changed color because of heat, so I have to throw it away. I also used up the second bottle of Melvita Rosehip oil which was my first step into the world of face oils. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by both the quick absorption as well as the softness of my skin after use. Right now, I’m trying out The Ordinary rosehip oil, but I must say that I somewhat prefer this one from Melvita (with the exception of price). Thanks to Gabi from Parokeets I also got to try the Hyaluron Gel from Ombia – again, my first hyaluronic gel so I have nothing to compare it against. Nevertheless, I noticed that my skin looked less dull and more hydrated during use, so I’m keeping my eyes open for when they restock this in Hofer stores! Last but not least, I also went through two sample sizes of Caudalie Vine[activ] 3in1 moisturizer. It was nice, easy on the skin, but nothing special in my eyes.

Porabila sem tudi kar nekaj izdelkov za nego obraza. Začniva s Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing gelom. To je bila že moja druga steklenička, verjetno pa gre za eno najboljših vlažilnih krem, kar sem jih kdaj preizkusila. Formula je lahkotna in osvežilna, se hitro vpije v kožo in mi pusti lepo podlago za nanos ličil. Dodaten bonus je dozator v obliki pumpice. Na žalost sem to stekleničko hranila pod nočno lučko, zaradi vročine pa je tekočina spremenila barvo in si je ne upam več uporabljati. Porabila sem tudi drugo stekleničko Melvitinega šipkovega olja, ki je bilo sploh prvo olje za obraz, ki sem ga kdaj uporabljala. Prijetno sem bila presenečena nad tem, kako hitro se vpije, pa tudi, kako mehka je moja koža po uporabi. Trenutno preizkušam The Ordinary šipkovo olje, vendar pa moram reči, da mi je Melvitino bolj pri srcu – seveda, če zanemarim razliko v ceni. Zahvaljujoč Parokeets Gabi sem lahko preizkusila tudi Ombia hialuronski gel. Tudi to je bil moj prvi izdelek s hialuronsko kislino, zato ga težko primerjam s čem drugim. Ne glede na to pa sem opazila, da je bila moja koža videti manj pusta in bolj nahranjena. Vsekakor bom pozorna in ga bom spet kupila, ko ga bodo v Hoferju uvrstili v ponudbo. Nazadnje sem porabila še dva vzorca Caudalie vine[activ] 3v1 vlažilne kreme. Bila je prijetna in nežna, vendar v resnici nič posebnega.

In the make-up department, I mostly used up face products, as one usually does. I scraped the every last bit out of the Catrice Prime and fine smoothing refiner. This is an absolutely awesome primer that really sat well on my skin and blurred out the pores. It was also as mattifying as promised. I’ve been looking for a replacement for a few weeks now but I can’t find it – if you do, let me know! I’d definitely recommend it to anyone, regardless of skin type. I also used up the Rimmel Fresher skin foundation. I didn’t like this at first, especially since it comes in a pot, but I learned to build up coverage when needed and now I’m really sad it’s gone. It was also great for days when I didn’t want to look made-up, since it does give a nice delicate coverage. Also a product I’d repurchase. The same goes for the Laura Geller Balance and Brighten baked foundation (travel size). It gives nice natural coverage, leaves the skin very smooth and silky feeling and doesn’t give you any cake-face, as many baked foundations do. It costs a whooping 32€ though, so I’m not sure I’ll repurchase it any time soon as I went through the travel size in no time at all.

Kot je že običajno, sem pri ličilih največ izdelkov porabila v kategoriji ličil za obraz. Do zadnje kapljice sem postrgala Catrice Prime and fine smoothing refiner. Gre za odličen primer, ki je dobro sedel na moji koži in zabrisal pože. Bil je tudi ravno tako matirni, kot je obljubljal. Že kar nekaj tednov ga iščem po drogerijah in ga ne najdem – če ga kje zaslediš, mi vsekakor javi! Vsekakor bi ga priporočala vsakomur, ne glede na tip kože. Porabila sem tudi Rimmel Fresher skin tekočo podlago. Na začetku mi ni bila všeč, predvsem zaradi tega, ker sem jo morala jemati s prsti ven iz lončka, nato pa sem se jo naučila dobro nanesti tudi tako, da sem dosegla večjo prekrivnost, če sem to želela. Prav tako je bila super za dni, ko sem želela samo lahno prekrivno podlago, ki je izgledala res naravno. Enako velja za Laura Geller Balance and Brighten puder v kamnu. Ta poskrbi za naravno prekrivnost, po uporabi pa je koža svileno mehka. Na obrazu se ne nabere in izgleda zelo naravno. Stane bogatih 32€, zato bom o ponovnem nakupu še premislila, saj sem ga porabila res zelo hitro.

Speaking of Rimmel, I also used up the n-th bottle of my favorite Match Perfection foundation. I went and got the Rimmel Lasting Finish this time, but I must say I don’t like it nearly as much. The Match Perfection is my favorite drugstore foundation so I’ll be sure to repurchase it again. I also used up the Maybelline Fit Me Matte&Poreless powder (not that you can tell from the packaging anymore). It was an OK powder, did its job, but I prefer Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder over it. Plus, it’s easier to get our hands on in Slovenia.

Ko sva že ravno pri znamki Rimmel, naj omenim, da sem porabila že n-to stekleničko moje najljubše drogerijske tekoče podlage Match Perfection. Tokrat sem jo nadomestila z Rimmel Lasting Finish, torej njeno sestro, ki pa mi niti približno ni tako všeč, kot Match Perfection. Izpraznila sem tudi Maybelline Fit me Matte&Poreless puder, ki je dobro opravil svoje delo, vendar pa mi je bolj všeč Rimmel Stay Matte, tudi zato, ker ga lahko dobim v vsaki slovenski drogeriji.

Last but not least, there are mascaras. SO. MANY. MASCARAS. I just wanted to show you that I’m throwing them away – if you want to read the description and see what they look like on the eyes, click *here*. Spoiler: I love the Sleek Full Fat Lash, Too Faced Better than Sex mascara and the Avon Mark Spectralash. The rest were not as spectacular. Until next time, stay beautiful!

Čisto na koncu pa še maskare. Ogromno maskar. Želela sem ti pokazati vse, ki bodo romale v smeti, kaj mislim o njih in kako izgledajo na očeh, pa si lahko prebereš *tu*. Spoiler: moje najljubše so bile Sleek Full Fat Lash, Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara in Avon Mark Spectralash. Druge niso bile tako spektakularne. Do naslednjič, ostani čudovita!

    Primer od catrice gre ven iz prodaje in je večinoma že razprodan, zato je bil tudi v akciji.
