Extraordinary Melvita

Winter is almost here and my preparations to start fighting dry skin before it’s too late are in full swing. It seems that Melvita was thinking weeks ahead before the Beautiful Bloggers Meet Up, they assembled such cute packages for each of us! Inside there were two products that have quickly become a staple in my skincare routine. They also have their own website if you wish to take a look:

The first one is the L’Or Bio Extraordinary Oil, a nicely scented dry oil with five oils: Argan, Kendi, Buriti, Inca Inchi and Pracaxi oils. Most of them are completely new to me, but the blend of all of them creates a very delicate skincare item that can be used on the face, body and on the hair. I am mostly using it on my body and on my hair, and oh my, how good and shiny my hair looks the day after applying L’Or Bio! Really an extraordinary product that works great on the entire body and does not leave any greasy residue.

The second product is the L’Or Bio Extraordinary Hand Cream. Such creams are usually very heavy, but not this one. It comes in a slightly lighter form, has a nice scent and immediately sinks into the skin. I can already see that the skin on my hands has improved these past few weeks and there is no other hand cream to praise than L’Or Bio!

Zima je že skoraj tukaj in moje priprave na boj proti suhi koži, preden je prepozno, so že v polnem teku. Pri Melviti so na to mislili že tedne pred dogodkom Beautiful Bloggers Meet Up, saj so za vsako izmed nas pripravili lušten paketek! Notri sta se skrivala dva izdelka, ki sta hitro postala glavna v moji rutini za nego kože. Melvita ima pri nas tudi svojo spletno stran, ki jo lahko obiščete na

Prvi izdelek je L’Or Bio ali Izjemno zlato olje s prijetnim vonjem in petimi dragocenimi olji: arganovim, kendi, buriti, inca inchi in pracaxi oljem. Večina teh olj je meni popolnoma nova, njihova mešanica pa ustvari zelo nežen izdelek za nego, ki se ga lahko uporablja na obrazu, telesu ali na laseh. Največkrat ga nanesem na kožo po celem telesu in na lase – lasje se dan po nanosu olja tako svetijo! Res izjemen izdelek, ki se ga lahko uporablja za celo telo, ne da bi za seboj pustil masten sloj.

Drugi izdelek pa je L’Or Bio izjemna krema za roke. Kreme za roke na osnovi olj so običajno zelo težke, ta pa je popolno nasprotje. Gre za kremo z lažjo teksturo, ima prijeten vonj in hitro se vpije v kožo. Že zdaj vidim, da je koža na rokah v boljšem stanju kot pred nekaj tedni in vse zasluge gredo ravno kremi L’Or Bio!

Skin hydration on point

img_2362img_2410img_2387I’ve already stated several times that I love using face serums and mists as I feel my skin mainly needs hydration. I don’t have any wrinkles yet at this point so I don’t feel like using heavy and rich creams that would make my mixed skin even more confused than it already is. I recently added another item to my skincare routine that I already love so so much. I’m talking about the Eau Extraordinaire Fleur d’Oranger by Melvita. Don’t be scared of these French words, it just means we’re talking about an Orange Blossom Extraordinary Water!

Eau Extraordinaire Fleur d’Oranger is a pre-moisturizer in a liquid form with orange blossom water that will soften and soothe your skin. Another essential ingredient is hyaluronic acid which moisturizes the skin and improves its texture. The gel-like water sinks into the skin in a matter of seconds and leaves a very soft feeling to the touch. It works great on its own, but I usually apply a serum on top in the morning before the rest of my make up routine. And the scent, I love orange blossom and this is another product that I wouldn’t mind smelling all day long! I would certainly recommend it to anyone who already use serums or wish to add a bit of mositurizing products to their skincare routine.

October favorites ◊ 2016 – Rituals and autumn skincare …

IMG_8285Oh my, where is this year going, we’re at the end of October already! This month was very intense and interesting in all aspects, the most amazing event was the Beauty Bloggers Conference which provided a pile of gorgeous products to try out and tell you all about them. However, please bear in mind that I will always tell you my hones opinion just the way I did until now. Let’s see which products really impressed me this month!

IMG_8241So, I have to start with the main star of my evening skincare routine, the Melvita Nigella Oil I got at the Conference. Nigella oil is actually very beneficial for oily skin as it contains a number of vitamins and nutrients as well as skin recovery properties. Oils should always be applied on damp skin because this way you only need a drop or two to apply it evenly on the whole face. I’ve been using the Dvorec Trebnik Refreshing toner as a base and I really love the combination, the toner refreshes my skin and the oil moisturizes it during the night. In the morning, the feeling after washing my face is great and my skin stays normal for hours. I may have overcome my fear of using oils, thank you so much, Melvita!

I haven’t mentioned before, but I got myself two little thingies at the Rituals store in Belgium. This candle was actually my last “heavy” product I went for because I knew my luggage would be completely overweight if I got anything else (and I already upgraded it to the max 32 kg!) – and the suitcase actually had 32 kg at the airport! I was actually shopping with autumn and winter in my mind and you’ll soon see why. This candle is called Sweet Sunrise and it is such a luxurious little item with sweet orange and cedar wood scent that fills the room the second it’s lit up. I feel this candle will come to a good use this year! The second item I got is their travel-sized fragrance EDP Eau d’orient and the name already suggests its main notes are full of woody aromas such as incense and spicy Persian pepper. The fragrance is very intense at first, but develops very nicely after a few minutes. Plus, one or two sprays last for the whole day as it is very long lasting.

Another thing to mention are this beautiful wooden tray and flowers I purchased at the L’Occitane garage sale. They are so gorgeous together with the feathers I’ve had stored for years, they really brighten up the room. Anyhow, I still have to carve a pumpkin for Halloween in the afternoon, stay tuned on Instagram to see if I manage to make a decent one or not!
