Lavender Lip Scrub

Prejšnji teden mi je pilinga za ustnice po kar nekaj mesecih uporabe končno zmanjkalo, zato je čas, da naredim novega. Pilinge redno uporabljam, za obraz ga vedno kupim, za ustnice in telo pa ga delam sama. Tokrat sem se odločila, da bom uporabila tudi eterično sivkino olje.

Potrebujemo:

  • 2 žlici sladkorja
  • 1 žlica kokosovega olja
  • 1/2 žlice olivnega olja
  • 1 žlička medu
  • 1 kapljica eteričnega sivkinega olja

After several months of use I finally finished my lip scrub and it’s time to make a new one. I frequently use scrubs ‒ I always buy face scrubs, but make lip and body scrubs by myself. This time, I decided to add lavender essential oil.

You’ll need:

  • 2 tbs sugar
  • 1 tbs coconut oil
  • 1/2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 drop of lavender essential oil

Vse sestavine zmešamo skupaj in pazimo, da ne raztresemo vsega ;) Če je zmes preveč tekoča, lahko dodamo še malo sladkorja. Sicer pa kokosovo olje piling kar precej strdi. Sama uporabljam samo domač med, saj le tako vem, da vsebuje vse dobre lastnosti. Med pomirja, vlaži, je poln mineralov, vitaminov in antioksidantov, poleg tega pa deluje tudi protibakterijsko. Sivkino olje je prav tako učinkovito proti mikrobom, celi kožne poškodbe, predvsem pa božansko diši!

We mix all ingredients carefully, we don’t want to scatter it around ;) If the mixture is too liquid, we can add some sugar ‒ coconut oil will nevertheless harden the scrub. I use only homemade honey, it’s the only way to be sure that it contains all beneficial ingredients. Honey soothes, moisturises, is full of minerals, vitamins and antioxidants and has antibacterial properties. Lavender oil is similarly antiseptic and heals skin injuries. Above all, it has an incredible scent

Ko vse dobro premešamo, piling preložimo v posodico. Ker so vse snovi zelo obstojne, ga lahko po mojem mnenju uporabljamo kar nekaj mesecev.

We mix everything thoroughly and place it in a small container. All ingredients are long lasting and, in my opinion, can be used for a few months.

Če ga še kaj ostane, tako kot ga je meni, ga lahko uporabite za obraz, telo ali pa ga podarite prijateljici :) Drugače pa so pilingi odlični za darila, po mojem mnenju smo takega darila vse vedno zelo vesele!

If there is some scrub left, you can either use it for face and body or give it to a friend :) Otherwise, scrubs make great gifts and I believe we are always pleased to get such a gift!

Favorite lip products of the month

Čas je, da razkrijem moje najljubše izdelke za ustnice tega meseca! Ni potrebno poudarjati, da ljubim rdeče šminke. Odtenkov je res tako veliko, da jih nikoli ne moreš imeti preveč :) Pripravila sem tri šminke in en balzam za ustnice, za katerega lahko trdim, da mi ustnice zelo uspešno rešuje pred vremenskimi vplivi.

It’s time to reveal my favorite lip products of the month! I don’t have to emphasize that I love red lipsticks. There are so many shades, you can never have too much of them :) I prepared three lipsticks and one lip balm which is efficiently saving my lips from weather conditions.

Sicer imam najraje bolj mat odtenke, vendar so danes vse šminke bolj svetleče. Prva je Max Factor (Ruby Tuesday) živo rdeča šminka, ki ima že malenkost roza odtenek. Zelo je kremasta in močno pigmentirana (na roki imam po nekaj urah še vedno roza črto!), tako da jo je res potrebno natančno nanesti :D Vseeno je izjemno lepe barve in je odlična za oblačne dneve ;)

I prefer mat shades, but I nevertheless chose shiny lipsticks. The first one is Max Factor (Ruby Tuesday), a bright red lipstick with a slightly pink shade. It’s creamy and very pigmented (my hand is still pink!) and should be applied very carefully :D The color is nevertheless beautiful and is perfect for cloudy days ;)

Naslednji dve sta Revlon v barvah Raspberry in Plum. Odtenek Raspberry je rozardeč, vendar je zelo prosojen in se ga na meni skoraj ne opazi, ker je že moja naravna barva ustnic zelo temna. Uporabljam jo takrat, ko ne želim močne barve ali samo balzama.

The next two are from Revlon, Raspberry and Plum shades. The raspberry shade is pink-red, but is very transparent and is not very visible on me, because my lips are already quite dark by themselves. I use it when I don’t want a strong shade or a lip balm.

Odtenek Plum je zelo temen in je že bolj vijolične barve. Žal sem svojo najljubšo bordo šminko izgubila oz. je ne najdem, tako da sem jo nadomestila s tem odtenkom :)

Plum shade is dark and on a more violet side. Unfortunately, I lost/cannot find my favorite bordeaux lipstick and it is currently replaced with this shade :)

Ker pozimi zaradi mraza koža postane zelo suha, je za lepo kožo in seveda tudi ustnice potrebno malo več nege. Nekajkrat na teden uporabim sladkorni piling za ustnice, ki jih nežno pripravi za nadaljnjo nego. Piling za ustnice si vedno delam sama, recept objavim konec tedna.

Trenutno mi stanje ustnic rešuje balzam Alverde z vonjem vanilje in mandarine. Uporabljam ga približno en teden, pa ima že popokano ohišje ‒ morda zato, ker ga res povsod vzamem s seboj! Vonj je božanski, ustnice navlaži in jih naredi izjemno mehke, poleg tega pa nima nobenega okusa, kar je pri meni velik plus!

The skin gets very dry during winter and both skin and lips need special care. I use sugar scruba a few times a week and it prepares the lips for the next level of care. I always make the scrub by myself, I’ll post the recipe at the end of the week.

Alverde lip balm with vanilla and tangerine scent is currently saving my lips. I’ve been using it for a week and its case is already broken ‒ maybe because I take it everywhere with me! The scent is gorgeous, it moistures the lips and makes them incredibly soft. Plus, it doesn’t have any taste, very important for me!

Lep teden še naprej! :)

Have a nice week! :)

 

NOTD #1

Nikoli nisem marala lakov s pastelnimi odtenki, letos pa so zame postali prava revolucija! Kar nekaj časa sem potrebovala, da sem se ločila od črnih in rdečih lakov za nohte, taka sprememba je resnično prijetna. Ker imam zelo krhke nohte in se mi večina lakov (tudi s podlakom!) takoj odkruši z roba nohta, zelo hitro vem, kateri laki so zame kvalitetni – tisti, ki zdržijo vsaj en dan! ;) Laki Maybelline Colorama so dokazali prav to.

I never liked pastel nail polish, but these have become a revolution for me this year! I needed quite some time to separate myself from black and red polishes. A change like that is really pleasant. My nails are very brittle and the majority of polishes chip off quickly (even though I use a base coat!),  so I always know which ones are of good quality  – if they manage to stay on for at least one day! ;) The Maybelline Colorama has shown the exact same thing.

Letos sem si kupila kar nekaj odtenkov, ki jih pridno uporabljam. Edina slaba stran je ta, da lak v steklenički hitro postane gost in ga je res težko nanašati. Za podlak sem uporabila Essence better than gel nails. Nimam občutka, da bi podaljšal obstojnost laka, ampak ga vedno nanesem, ker nohte dobro zaščiti pred močnejšimi barvami.

I bought quite a few shades and I use them frequently. The only negative side is the fact that the polish gets dense and is difficult to apply. I used the Essence better than gel nails. The nail polish doesn’t stay on any longer, but I nevertheless use it every time because of its protection of nails against stronger colors. IMG_7754-1024x7141-1024x857

Zdaj pa še malo joge. Z luštnimi nohti je vse lažje ;)

And now it’s time for yoga. Everything is easier with pretty nails ;)
