BEAUTY: Two brands that keep my skin soft & supple



ENG
As always with a change of season, there comes a switch of product line-ups. Say hello to hydrators if you want to keep your skin from flaking and itching. I’ve always been a huge facial-skin-care-geek, never went to bed without doing the whole facial routine. But, when it comes to taking care of my body, I fail. This year, I made a bit of a deal with myself – to moisturize everyday before I wrap myself into my soft Cheek by Lisca robe. And you know what, I’ve stuck to it quite well (mostly due to some amazing products)!

Every night I (obviously) shower or take a bath and I’ve been loving the Afrodita Hyaluron shower gel. It does such a great job, cleansing and moisturizing combined! It contains 100% natural hyaluronic acid, which generously moisturizes my skin and helps prevent it drying out. After that, I slather myself in a body moisturiser. A complementary Afrodita Hyaluron moisturising body lotion is one of my all-time favourites since it really works down to deeper skin layers and has a non-greasy and fast absorbing formula (that I always look for in body moisturisers).

While Afrodita is a Slovenian brand known for its high quality and affordable prices, and I’ve always supported amazing domestic companies. But when it comes to shaving creams, I haven’t found anything as good as Eos Ultra Moisturising shave cream in Lavender Jasmine. Although it doesn’t foam, it makes shaving so easy while providing my skin with soothing moisture every time I use it. You may know Eos as “the brand” for lipbalms, but guys, I can’t tell you how good this stuff is – I don’t even need to use a moisturiser after!

My lips are ridiculously dry in winter, so I should finish off this post with a good word on another Eos product – the Eos Visibly Soft lipbalm in Coconut Milk, which smells good enough to eat. I find this one even better than the classic (not that they are not good, they are great!), it’s super moisturising and nourishing. As you may notice, every product in this post is geared with hydration in mind from the shower gel to the lipbalm, which makes them perfect for winter time.

Vsako leto sem med svoje lepotne novoletne zaobljube poskušala vtakniti tudi »bolj redno vlaženje kože telesa«, pa je nekako vsako leto ostalo le pri misli na to, da je to nekaj, česar se je zares vredno držati. Po eni strani je za mojo slabo skrb kriva moja lenoba, po drugi so krivi produkti, ki mi nikakor ne ležijo. Sovražim počasno vpijanje krem oziroma losjonov za telo (presenetljivo me na obrazu to sploh ne moti in grem lahko spat z goro produktov, za katere moj dragi sprašuje, če jih nanašam z lopato). Tako, letos sem se odločila, da bom bolj »pridna«, hkrati pa že v štartu poiskala nekaj produktov, ki mi bodo delo olajšali.

Naj začnem na začetku. Nega kože telesa se lahko začne že med tuširanjem. Ključ je v tem, da poiščete produkt, ki bo vašo kožo nežno čistil, hkrati pa ji zagotavljal vlažilno nego. Sama sem našla produkt slovenskega podjetja (hura za vrhunske domače proizvode!) – Afrodita Hyaluron gel za prhanje s 100% naravno hialuronsko kislino, ki kožo med prhanjem izdatno vlaži in pomaga preprečevati izsuševanje. Nanos losjona za telo je priporočljiv takoj po prhanju (da vlago še bolj »zaklene«), zato se kaj hitro odenem še v super vlažilni Afrodita Hyaluron lotion za telo iz iste linije. Njegova formula je nemastna in hitro vpijajoča, kar je ogromen ogromen plus – vsaj zame.

Še ena znamka, ki me je s svojimi vlažilnimi produkti povsem zasvojila je Eos. O njihovih produktih sem pisala že pred kratkim (objavo lahko prebereš tukaj), lahko pa vam izdam še enega favorita. To je Eos krema za britje z vonjem sivke in jasmina, ki kožo naredi mehko in gladko. Britje je enostavno (kljub temu, da ne gre za peno, temveč kremo), največji plus pa so njegove sestavine, ki kožo navlažijo in nahranijo. Pena vsebuje vitamina C in E ter karitejevo maslo, zaradi česar je kasneje nanos kreme ali losjona skoraj nesmiseln.

Eos je v prvi vrsti znan po srčkanih naravnih balzamih za ustnice. Njihov najnovejši Eos Visibly Soft Coconut Milk me je prepričal še bolj kot njihovi »klasični«, saj je še bogatejši in zares poskrbi, da so ustnice mehkejše, gladke in navlažene. Da ne omenim, kako omamen je vonj, sama se komaj zadržujem, da ga ne zližem z ustnic. Po celotni negi telesa (in ustnic) zvečer pride samo še čas, ko sem odenem v mehko haljo Cheek by Lisca, vzamem v roko knjigo ali laptop, preberem kaj lepega in navdihujočega, ter se pripravim na spanje (s popolnoma navlaženo kožo).

BEAUTY: New Year, New Brushes



First of all, a little disclaimer. For me the end of 2014 was really adventurous (I decided to join my boyfriend at his training camp in Gran Canaria which was a last minute decision), a bit hectic (with all the Christmas and New Year’s Eve jazz) and that’s why I didn’t find any time to post. I believe that everyone needs a break once in a while in their life, and so do I. I had the most amazing time on the island that lives up to its cliché as a continent in miniature (Dunes of Maspalomas, all the breathtaking views while travelling across the island, the intact mainland, oh boy I wish I was there again). I hope you all had an amazing year, enjoyed my blog and hopefully are looking forward to exploring new fashion and beauty stuff in 2015 with me. Dear readers, I wish you all the best in 2015!

New Year brought New Brushes. Zoeva extended their makeup brush range with 8 new brushes and the official launch was on January 5th. You might know me as a huge fan of Zoeva, their precisely made brushes can easily be compared to the ones from brand like Mac in my opinion – amazing value for money. Not to mention, they are ridiculously soft! Here are 8 quick reviews to help you decide whether you need these 8 new brushes on your makeup table:

Zoeva 107 Powder Polish (16,80€) is a large super soft brush with dome shaped dense taklon hair. It’s perfect for applying all loose and pressed face products, I found it best to work with pressed finish powders or bronzers and it’s the biggest brush from Zoeva that I own.

Zoeva 109 Face Paint Vegan (12,80€) is perfect for all liquid and cream contour products due to it’s unique flat and square design. A brush that will change your contour routine and make it much easier – as it did with mine. It also reminded me I need to find some new cream contour products. Any suggestions?

Zoeva 112 Face Curve (12,80€) is a foundation brush with pointed yet curved shape and soft vegan taklon hair. It is so easy to cover every area of my face with this one, however I am still not sure whether it beats the 102 Silk Finish. It doesn’t. At least not for me.

Zoeva 114 Luxe Face Focus (12,80€) is a flat, flame shaped brush perfection. I use it to apply my highlighter, it’s super handy and amazingly soft (natural-synthetic hair mix). Not only that it is perfect for highlighter, it also works great for selective touch ups and setting makeup with powder under the eye area.

Zoeva 129 Luxe Fan (10,80€), a brush I've fallen in love with! This multifunctional tool is perfect for highlighter, blush or bronzer as well as it's ideal to brush away eyeshadow fall out. The one you should have in your collection, for sure!

Zoeva 220 Luxe Grand Shader (8,80€) is ideal for applying all powder eyeshadow products in one stroke. They call it »the most luxurious shader brush« and at first glance it seemed way to big. After my first application of a base eyeshadow, I knew this one will get a lot of love from me. Easy, quick and fluffy – the Zoeva 220!

Zoeva 310 Spot Liner (6,80€) might be the smallest brush you have ever seen. It's super tiny yet effective and designed to visually thicken your lash line with eyeliner or eyeshadow. I am not absolutely sure whether you really need this one, however it does make the job easy.

Zoeva 325 Luxe Brow Light (7,80€) is made of finest natural-syntheic hair and it’s a brush dedicated especially for under-brow area. Contouring and accentuating my brows has never been so easy, it allows me to spread the powder eyeshadow/highlight evenly and precisely (although it’s quite large). When you think you've seen it all, Zoeva strikes again – with some new innovative product.

You can buy all Zoeva brushes HERE.

Tokrat je objava le v angleščini, predvsem zaradi pomanjkanja časa (za vsa vprašanja pa sem jasno na voljo preko maila ali socialnih omrežji). Zoeva čopiče najdete na temlinku ali pa v slovenski spletni trgovini Moja Drogerija (menda pridejo točno ti modeli kmalu).

OUTFIT: Fantastique + New Yorker GIVEAWAY



ENG
This “fantastique” shirt has been one of my favorite pieces, it’s so easy to mix and match. I find it best to combine it with a casual jacket like this one, pairing it with some skinny trousers, angle boots; plus an infinity scarf and a black hat to give it some edge. I hope you find it as “fantastique” as I do.
