It’s been almost six months since my last empties. The results are tragic – a full bag of empty product, so many that I cannot possibly fit them into one post. Today, you can read all about my hair and body care products. This post will be followed by skincare and make-up empties in the following week. Let’s jump right into it.

Minilo je skoraj pol leta, odkar sem nazadnje pisala o svojih porabljenih izdelkih. Posledice so pogubne – polna vreča praznih izdelkov, ki jih nikakor ne morem povzeti v eni objavi. Tokrat lahko torej danes prebereš objavo o izdelkih za nego las in telesa, v nadaljevanju tedna pa sledi še objava o porabljenih izdelkih za nego kože in ličilih. Predlagam, da kar začneva.

HAIR CARE **** IZDELKI ZA NEGO LAS

empties shampoo loreal elseve

I haven’t been very good when it comes to shampoos because I’ve been loving the L’Oreal Elseve Extraodinary Clay&Purifying shampoo and conditioner so much. Again and again, I’m amazed how clean, shiny and fresh my hair feels after use. I especially like the fact that it prolongs the time during washes for a day, if not more. I’m now on my fourth pack of these. On the other hand, I wasn’t too impressed with Precious Argan shampoo and conditioner. I didn’t like the scent and my hair got greasy very quick. Wouldn’t repurchase either of them.

Pri porabi šamponov nisem bila preveč pridna, sploh ne zato, ker se zadnje čase držim L’Oreal Elseve Extraordinary Clay & Purifying šampona in balzama. Vsakič znova me preseneti, kako čisti, dišeči in sveži so moji lasje po uporabi. Še posebej mi je všeč, da čas med pranji podaljšata za vsaj dan, če ne več. Kupila sem že svoj četrti komplet! Po drugi strani sta me Precious Argan šampon in balzam razočarala, saj mi je bil neprijeten vonj, prav tako pa so se moji lasje po uporabi izredno hitro ponovno zmastili. Izdelka ne bi ponovno kupila.

empties shampoo nivea pantene briogeo

I was also relatively pleased with the Nivea Care & targeted care shampoo and conditioner for dry hair. My hair was soft and more manageable, but products for dry hair really shouldn’t be used by those of us who have problems with greasy scalp. I should have paid more attention to that. I also used up two samples of Briogeo Don’t despair, repair hair mask and didn’t find them to be revolutionary. In fact, they didn’t do anything that a regular conditioner can’t do. Last but not least, I also used up the Pantene Aqua Light shampoo which was good for my hair but made my scalp itchy and dry.

Med šamponi sem bila relativno zadovoljna tudi z Nivea Care & targeted care šamponom in balzamom za suhe lase. Lasje so bili mehki in prožni, vendar pa šamponi za suhe lase niso prava izbira za tiste, ki se nam pri lasišču mastijo hitreje – na to bi morala biti sama bolj pozorna. Porabila sem tudi dva vzorčka Briogeo Don’t Despair, repair mask za lase, za katere ne morem reči, da sta povzročili kakšno revolucijo na mojem lasišču. Pravzaprav jih lahko primerjam z vsakim čisto povprečnim balzmamom. Nenazadnje je tu še Pantene Aqua Light šampon, ki je bil dober za moje lase, vendar pa ga ne bi več kupila, saj mi je preveč izsušil lasišče.

BODY CARE **** IZDELKI ZA NEGO TELESA

empties shower gel nivea afrodita just

I generally forget to save up shower gels, but I really wanted to show you these two – Nivea Waterlily & Oil and Afrodita Sweet almond oil gel. They are similar in the sense that they both lather up nicely and have a wonderful smell. I would repurchase those but I need to get through my stock of Afrodita shower gels before that. I also used up what is probably my tenth bottle of Just Intimate Gel. It’s not irritable and I think that’s extremely important when it comes to personal hygiene.

Gele za tuširanje pogosto vržem stran in se le redko spomnim, da bi morali pravzaprav romati v mojo lepotno kanto. Ne glede na to sem se spomnila obdržati dva, ki sta mi bila res všeč- Nivea Waterlily & oil in Afrodita Sweet almond oljni gel za prhanje. Oba imata skupno to, da gre za relativno težka gela za tuširanje, ki proizvedeta veliko pene in dišita omamno. Oba bi kupila ponovno, vendar imam še od LoveBeauty Foruma na zalogi toliko drugih Afrodita gelov, da bodo prihodnji nakupi morali počakati. O Just Deo Intim gelu za intimno nego sem že pisala. Ker ne vsebuje nevarnih snovi in je nežen do mojih intimnih predelov, ga kupujem vedno znova. To je najbrž že moja deseta steklenička, saj menim, da je intimno zdravje izredno pomembno.

 

empties deodorants nivea le couvent des minimes dolce gabbana

Last but not least – deodorants. All three have been lying in my empties bag for months, since I’m now a religious user of Mirta deodorant (you can read all about it *here*). I cannot many nice words about the Nivea Pure&Natural deodorant except for the fact it doesn’t contain aluminium salts. It didn’t fare well when it comes to body odor. I could probably say the same about the Dolce&Gabbana Light blue deodorant, but I only used this on special occasions and didn’t put it through as many paces. On the other hand, I have only nice words for the Le Couvent Des Minimes deodorant with essential oils. It did the job and I personally think it’s worth the money, since it took months to use it up.

Nenazadnje so tu še deodoranti. Vsi trije so v moji lepotni kanti počivali že mesece, saj že nekaj časa uporabljam izključno izjemen Mirta deodorant (oceno lahko najdeš *tu*). O Nivea pure&natural deodorantu ne morem povedati nič kaj dobrega z izjemo tega, da ne vsebuje aluminijevih soli. Mojih težav z neprijetnim telesnim vonjem pač ni obvladal. Podobno bi najbrž lahko rekla za Dolce&Gabbana Light blue deodorant, vendar tega uporabljam samo za posebne priložnosti, tako da tistih nekaj ur že zdrži. Na drugi strani je Le Couvent Des Minimes deodorant z eteričnimi olji izredno učinkovit, dodaten plus pa dobi, ker ne gre za deodorant na potisni plin. Menim, da je kljub nekoliko višji ceni vreden svojega denarja, saj mi je zdržal kar nekaj mesecev.

If you used any of the product above, I’d love to hear your opinion about them. Until next time, stay beautiful!

če si tudi sama že uporabljala kakšnega od teh izdelkov, bom seveda vesela tvojega mnenja. Do naslednjič, ostani čudovita!

 

I am such a sucker for foreign brands that I rarely think about reaching for something domestic, which is unfortunate, really, since I am only now learning how many wonderful brands are being made right here in my backyard.

Subrina is one of the brands that’s really been neglected on my part and I got a chance to try two of the products from the Vitamins & Strength line that I got at the Beauty Blogger Meetup. They are sold at the Click2Chic online store. The shampoo costs for 2,34 300 ml and the conditioner 2,49 € for 250 ml.

Both shampoo and conditioner are without parabens, mineral oil and formaldehyde releases meaning that they don’t contain all sorts of things that are not really beneficial for your hair or your scalp.

I really, really like the way that the combo of both products makes my hair feel – it’s nice and silky, very light but also feels nourished. I didn’t notice any significant changes as far as the outward appearance goes – my hair pretty much looked the same as it always does.

One thing I would have liked different is the smell. Although I put a lovely smelling oil in my hair when it’s still damp, I could still feel the overpowering smell of perfume in the conditioner through it and I wasn’t impressed. But, if that’s your thing, you will love this Subrina line, because the smell really lingers for a long time.

Since the 1st Beauty Bloggers meetup, I have banned myself from shopping completely. I have so many wonderful products at home, so many new brands to explore and so many posts to write that I simply don’t need any more beauty products in my life right now.

 

Consequently, I decided to attempt (to the best of my abilities) a month with a post each single day, which I named Blogvember. Hopefully, I will be able to keep my word and 30 separate posts, although it will be no walk in the park since November is usually the busiest moth of the year at work and I will also be flying somewhere warm to soak my feet in the middle of the ocean during the month. But I believe in myself and hopefully, you will enjoy the posts will bring to you!

One of the brands that I had almost no experience with before the conference is Aussie. I was quite excited to see their products in the gift bags since I have heard many good things about it from other beauty bloggers. 

At the conference, I got the Aussie Repair Miracle Shampoo (300 ml, about 5,60 € at Boots) and the Repair Miracle Conditioner (250 ml, also about 5,60 € at Boots). On one of my trips, I also picked up the Aussie Miracle Dry Shampoo (Colour Mate, about 6,6€ at Boots). View Full Post
