BBMU ali lepotni dogodek leta

 img_4156img_4297img_4247img_4181new-folderimg_4213img_4362img_4253img_4229img_4177untitledČetrti Beautiful Bloggers MeetUp ali kultni dogodek leta za lepotne blogerke je za nami (sicer že dobre tri tedne nazaj, ampak nisem skakala okrog in fotografirala zaman!). Konference BBMU sem se udeležila tretjič in prepričana sem, da nisem edina, ki meni, da je iz leta v leto boljša. Nika Veger si zasluži poklon in objem za mojstrsko organizacijo dogodka, dekleta znamo biti zelo zahtevna in včasih nam je kar težko vzeti sapo :) No, Niki in ostalim sponzorjem je ponovno uspelo prav to, celoten Mestni muzej in galerije Ljubljana je bil zavit v prijeten ambient, ki je na vsakem koraku skrival neomejeno število možnosti za fotografiranje.

img_4155img_4175img_4171Če kdo misli, da smo stradale … se resnično moti! ;) Barbarella, moj najljubši lokalček, kamor s sodelavko redno hodiva po kosila (njihova gobova mineštra in slane pitke so zakon!), je poskrbela za odlične smoothieje, juhice, brezglutenske (!!) kanapejčke … catering res ne bi mogel biti boljši. In še vse je tako lepo pripravljeno in instagramabilno, da sem spet dobila zagon za pripravo zdravih sladic!

new-folder1img_4516img_4537Zadnjih nekaj let vsako poletje nestrpno pričakujem informacije, ali bo Nika konferenco res organizirala, ker resnično predstavlja enkratno možnost, da smo vse navdušenke zbrane na enem mestu. Na BBMU-ju sem spoznala res izjemna dekleta, ki jih verjetno sicer nikoli ne bi srečala. Seveda sem navdušena nad vsemi darilci, ki smo jih prejele, ampak v resnici je namen tega dogodka povsem drugje. Predavatelji so načeli pomembne teme, o katerih bi morale dobro razmisliti prav vse – od doslednega označevanja plačanih objav (jaz jih do sedaj še nisem imela, vendar to vsekakor nameravam izrecno označiti, če kdaj do tega pride), pravnih vidikov bloganja in tudi oblikovanja lastnega cenika.

Welcome 30’s with Vichy


A few weeks ago Vichy hosted a lovely event for their Slow Âge skincare line. The entire Slow Âge line is inspired by slow ageing in a hectic life of modern day. All the products are targeting the first signs of ageing, which makes it perfect as I’m slowly approaching the milestone of 30 years! The two creams differ in texture and consistency, but they both have quite strong scents that might be irritating to some people. This doesn’t present any problems to me as they disappear soon after the creams are applied. I tested them both thoroughly, so let’s start!

The daily Slow Âge is a rich moisturizer aimed at dry and sensitive skin enriched with antioxidant Biacalin, probiotic-derived Bifidus and mineralising thermal water. SPF 30 will also protect your face against the damaging UV rays – don’t forget to apply it on your neck as well. I actually got the exact one last year, but gave it away because I was certain it would not suit my normal to mixed complexion. This time, however, I decided to give it a try, because how often do you get two same Vichy face creams in one year?! ;) Honestly, I’m surprised by how nicely this cream performs, it doesn’t irritate my skin or make it oily, plus it works just fine underneath my makeup.

On the other hand, I already knew that the overnight treatment, i.e. the Slow Âge Nuit, would be perfect for my skin! This mask in gel form contains Resveratrol, Niacinamide, Caffeine and antioxidant Baïcalin Root Extract. I actually received a generous sample in the spring and slowly used it throughout the summer. It was actually on my wish list, that’s how much I liked it! In contrast to a somehow sweet scent of the daily mosturizer, the night mask has a slightly minty touch. You can use it two ways, as a regular night cream or as an intense mask that you apply in a thin layer and remove 10 minutes later. It works well over my moisturizing evening skincare and if it happens I’m too lazy to use anything else, this mask is the only product I go for. Its ingredient list is also less extensive than the daily cream, that one is a mouthful!

All in all, the Vichy Slow Âge line performs well on my skin, but I would rather recommend it to those with dry one, at least as far as the daily moisturizer goes. As a lover of serums and fluid textures, I have to purchase the Daily correcting care at one point and give it a try.

Below is a snippet of the Welcome 30’s Party, me and my sister had such a lovely time! It was so nice to take the evening off and just enjoy spending some time together. Thank you so much for having us! :)


Lookfantastic Beauty Box – October 2018

img_3600img_3610img_3617img_3654img_3672img_3709Things just got serious, my November Beauty Box is on its way so I have to hurry and go through the October’s edition! :) Does anyone have similar problems, months just slip by and despite my best efforts some things just never get done. Anyway, let’s discuss the Lookfantastic October Beauty Box, which is by far one of the best boxes I received since my first subscription in April.

Let’s start with the product I’ve constantly been using for the past month: Fresh Face Blush by Pixi in shade Beach Rose. This is actually a warm matt brown that I use as a bronzer, it beautifully applies on the skin and contours the face. Strangely enough, I cannot find this particular shade anywhere, it seems like it’s been discontinued. But if all Pixi Beauty bronzers and blushes perform as well as this one (the reviews are excellent), there’s no reason not to try the other shades!

Ahava Mineral Body Lotion is also among my favorites, it has such an extraordinary scent! It contains Dead Sea minerals, Aloe Vera and Witch Hazel. I love how quickly it sinks in and how wonderful the skin feels afterwards.

This Beauty Box also included the Dr. Lipp Balm for dry skin and lips. It’s actually a very nourishing balm that really prevents the lips from drying, which is very important now that the heating season has started. It can be used for the hands and any other dry part as well, but I’ll keep using it on the lips!

The AGELESS Throat & Decolletage cream by Prai is a very pleasant anti-ageing cream, a nice reminder that we should also focus on the area below our face! I’m really good at applying all the active ingredients on my throat and decolletage and this AGELESS cream will definitely come in handy. Mulberry, Saxifrage and Grapeseed Extracts fight age spots and discolorations while Sepilift DPHP™ restores elasticity and stimulates contraction of collagen. There’s no difference on my skin yet, but I still have to test it out properly!

This leaves us with two face products. First is the Talika Bubble Mask Bio Detox; one bubble mask was also part of the May edition and it was so creepy to use it! It just foamed uncontrollably for a few minutes, but it left a nice feeling on the skin. I feel this one will be quite similar, but I don’t like these foaming masks so much that I would buy them, I rather invest into moisturizing masks or overnight treatments.

The second one is the MONU Night Renewal Complex, a cream with Marine Collagen and Polysaccharides that smoothes fine lines, improves elasticity, nourishes and hydrates the skin. I applied it a couple of times at the end of my evening skincare routine and it works nicely. It leaves the skin very soft and has a fresh scent that slightly resembles the sea, so nice!

That’s all that I have to say about the October Lookfantastic Beauty Box, this one was great and I truly hope that the November’s edition will be just as exciting! :)
