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!

 

loccitane revitalizing fresh cleansing scrub

During the summer I often feel like my scalp gets really messy, really fast – even faster than in the winter time. I can confirm that because I spent a week cooped up inside during a recent cold and my hair was still in reasonable shape after a week of not washing it. Otherwise, it gets greasy really fast. If we add the layers of hair oils and sprays, sea salt and other dirt into the mix, it’s instantly clear why a cleansing shampoo such as the L’Occitane revitalizing fresh cleansing scrub should be a staple in every bathroom.

V poletnih dneh imam občutek, da je moje lasišče res nečisto in se umazanija na njem nabere še hitreje, kot poleti. To mi je potrdil tudi čas med nedavnim prehladom – ker cel teden nisem zapustila zatočišča lastnega doma, so bili moji lasje tudi po celem tednu še vedno v sprejemljivem stanju, sicer pa se poleti izredno hitro zmastijo. Če dodamo še plasti olj in lakov za lase, morsko sol in podobno, potem je jasno, da bi moral biti očiščevalni šampon, kot je L’Occitanov poživljajoči očiščevalni piling, stalnica v vsaki kopalnici.

Product that will change your hair care routine *** Izdelek, ki spremeni rutino nego las

loccitane revitalizing fresh cleansing scrub

This year, I chose the L’Occitane revitalizing  fresh cleansing scrub (150ml, 23,50 €). It’s a cream scrub with particles of sea salt. I apply it directly to the scalp and really rub it well in so that the sea salt can improve the microcirculation in the scalp. Then, I add plently of water so that the product foams and I wash the rest of my hair with that foam. It can be used before shampooing or instead of a regular shampoo.

Sama sem letos izbrala L’Occitane poživljevalni očiščevalni piling za lasišče (150ml, 23,50 €, trgovine L’Occitane, spletna trgovina, Nama in Maxi). Gre za kremni piling z drobnimi zrnci morske soli. Nanese se ga direktno na lasišče in dobro vmasira v kožo, saj ta zrnca pospešijo mikrocirkulacijo lasišča. Nato je potrebno izdelek kar dobro zaliti z vodo, da se speni in ga lahko razporediš čez cele lase in umiješ še te. Uporablja se namreč lahko pred šamponiranjem s klasičnim šamponom ali namesto njega. View Full Post

OK, OK, it’s not a battle – but it sure sounds interesting, doesn’t it? I did a Battle of the blenders a while ago comparing Real Techniques and Beautyblender sponges (*click*) so I thought I’d stick to the tradition.

Today, I wanted to do a quick comparison of two popular dry shampoos – Batiste Original and Aussie Festival Fresh dry shampoo.

Price and availability

Batiste dry shampoos can be bought at Licila.si for 4,90 € per bottle (200 ml), while you can get Aussie dry shampoo at Muller drugstore (probably also DM, but I’m not sure about that) for about 4 € per bottle (180 ml).

Packaging and spraying distribution

Well, although Aussie is trying hard to be hip, I still love the retro look of Batiste dry shampoos with the swirls, cherries and flowers they put on their bottles. The distribution of the product is approximately similar with both, but the softer cap on Aussie shampoo makes it a bit easier to control how much product you want to get out. View Full Post
