Crema de zi anti-aging cu minerale de la Marea Moarta, alge marine si acid hialuronic

Marea Moarta este renumita pentru efectele terapeutice ale celor 21 de minerale prezente in sarea ei, care mentin hidratarea naturala a pielii, tonifica tesutul cutanat, stimuleaza circulatia sanguina si ajuta la eliminarea toxinelor. Extractul algei marine Porphyridium Cruentum si acidul hialuronic prezente in compoziţia cremei au un puternic efect de netezire si de reducere a adancimii ridurilor, prin umplerea lor din interior.

Este o baza ideala pentru machiaj, are efect hidratant si tonifiant si nu incarca tenul. Lipsa parabenilor din compozitie, factorul de protectie solara adaugat si pretul de doar 21,60 lei pentru 50 ml constituie un mare plus.

Pell Amar: Dermatocosmetice cu extract din namol terapeutic

Stiati ca extractul pur de namol sapropelic este o pudra alba si nu de culoare inchisa? Extractul se obtine exclusiv prin procedee mecanice si este un concentrat conceput special pentru a fi folosit in produse cosmetice si terapeutice. Extractul pastreaza toate sarurile si mineralele namolului terapeutic.

Toate produsele PellAmar contin extract pur de namol sapropelic. Ca si cum ai merge in fiecare zi la un spa, unde se face peloidoterapie, care iti trateaza starea generala de sanatate. Am incercat anterior cateva produse din gama si mi-ai placut toate. Astazi va prezint trei noutati in rutina mea de ingrijire a tenului.

Lotiunea calmanta Pell Amar purifica, reimprospateaza si tonifica tenul, reglandu-i PH-ul. Reduce excesul de grasime de la suprafata pielii si regularizeaza actiunile glandelor sebacee. Principiile active au efect antibacterian si antiinflamator, cu actiune in combaterea si prevenirea acneei.

Am utilizat aceasta lotiune dimineata si seara, pentru curatarea tenului si a gatului, prin miscari blande, cu ajutorul unei dischete demachiante. Are un efect racoritor si calmant instantaneu, datorita mentolului din compozitie. Folosita cu regularitate, are efect de tonifiere a tenului si reglare a secretiei de sebum.

The Pell Amar soothing lotion is a keratolytic solution with sebum secretion normalizing effect, cleaning sebum excess, anti-inflammatory effect and reducing the phenomenon of microbial proliferation. It purifies, refreshes and tones the skin, restoring its proper PH. It has an instant cooling and calming effect, due to the menthol in its composition. Regular application of the lotion with a pad improves skin firmness and appearance, fighting acne and sebum excess.

Gelul pentru peeling Pell Amar deblocheaza canalele glandelor sebacee, exfoliaza stratul cornos al epidermei, prevenind aderenta celulelor moarte de piele si blocarea porilor. Are efect de corectare treptata si accelerare a regenerarii suprafetei epidermei. Calmeaza iritatiile, previne dezvoltarea eruptiilor cutanate si accelereaza vindecarea, minimizand riscul de formare a cicatricilor.

Gelul se aplica o data sau de doua ori pe saptamana, preferabil seara, pe pielea curata si umeda, evitand zona ochilor si a gurii, clatindu-se cu apa calda, la cinci minute dupa aplicare. Tenul ramane curat, uniform, oxigenat si stralucitor. Imperfectiunile, semnele si petele solare se estompeaza vizibil.

The Pell Amar peeling gel contains a mixture of alpha and beta hydroxyacids with keratolytic action. It is recommended for treating acne skin, oily skin or in antiaging treatments, by reducing fine wrinkles, diminishing pigmentation, improving skin firmness and elasticity. The mixture of alpha and beta hydroxyacids dissolve the dead skin, impurities, blackheads and superficial layer of the epidermis, stimulating skin regeneration.

Applied on clean skin, preferably in the evening, once or twice a week, avoiding the eyes and mouth and rinsed with warm water after 5 minutes, the gel progressively corrects and accelerates regeneration of the epidermis surface, smoothing and improving skin condition. The skin is left refreshed and oxygenated, with a healthy and uniform color, while imperfections become less visible.

Bazata pe un factor neconventional de protectie, de natura vegetala, crema de zi Pell Amar protejeaza impotriva radiatiilor solare UVA si UVB, ofera protectie impotriva radicalilor liberi, mentine hidratarea naturala a pielii si impiedica pigmentarea datorata expunerii la soare. Extractul din seminte de floarea soarelui conserva structura si functiile pielii, uleiul de catina conserva echilibrul hidric si protejeaza impotriva radiatiilor, iar colagenul de origine marina are efect hidratant, antiiritant si calmant.

Se aplica pe tenul curat, prin masaj usor, pentru a asigura protectie pe timpul zilei. Nu incarca tenul si este o buna baza pentru machiaj. Datorita extractului de namol sapropelic din compozitie, trebuie masata bine pentru absorbtia completa a peliculei albe, care persista pe piele vreme de cateva zeci de secunde. Utilizata zilnic, imbunatateste vizibil aspectul tenului, care capata fermitate si elesticitate.

Based on a unique combination of active ingredients, the anti stress day cream protects against UVA and UVB solar radiation, free radicals, maintains the skin’s natural moisture and prevents pigmentation due to sun exposure. The sunflower seed extract prevents irreversible damage to skin components, the seabuckthorn oil, helps maintain skin hydric balance, while marine collagen plays an important role in skin moisture and recovery. It is a good make-up base. Applied daily, it visibly improves skin appearance, firmness and elasticity.

Crema antirid cu efect matifiant GreenStem Cosmetic Plant

Primavara si vara nu vin doar cu zile mai lungi, apusuri tarzii, vacante si timp petrecut in aer liber, ci si cu vreme fierbinte si transpiratie, care predispun la ten incarcat si chiar acnee. Transpiratia, in amestec cu sebumul in exces, praful si bacteriile, blocheaza porii, ducand la aparitia cosurilor. Efectul keratolitic al soarelui asupra pielii (rata crescuta de regenerare a pielii expuse la razele solare) duce la mentinerea celulelor moarte pe suprafata acesteia un timp mai indelungat, blocand porii. Se impune, deci, o ingrijire adecvata a tenului in sezonul cald, respectand pasii: curatare, tonifiere, hidratare si acoperire cu formula usoara.

Este important sa nu omitem hidratarea doar pentru ca este vara. Solutia este o crema cu efect matifiant, textura non-grasa si, extrem de important, factor de protectie solara.

Cosmetic Plant este o companie autohtona, fondata in 1991, care a ales sa redefineasca frumusetea prin produse cosmetice inalt calitative, bazate pe ingrediente naturale, la preturi accesibile. Portofoliul Cosmetic Plant cuprinde game destinate atat ingrijirii tenului, cat si a parului, mainilor, corpului si picioarelor. Multitudinea de premii internationale castigate la concursuri precum Monde Selection sau German Beauty Awards si respectarea restrictiilor GMP stau marturie a calitatii produselor.

Bazata pe un ingredient inovativ, extract de celule stem din muguri de argan, crema antirid matifianta GreenStem Cosmetic Plant contribuie la mentinerea proceselor naturale de refacere a pielii, prin stimularea celulelor stem aflate in stratul profund al acesteia, derma. Celulele stem dermice constituie sursa de reinnoire continua a pielii. Cu varsta, randamentul producerii de noi celule scade, sinteza de colagen si elastina este redusa iar pielea isi pierde tonusul, aparand riduri si pete. Celulele stem vegetale pot reda celulelor stem dermice capacitatea de a se reinnoi si de a forma noi celule, cu rol in sinteza de colagen si elastina, astfel pielea devenind ferma, elastica si supla.

PhytoCellTec Argan are capacitatea de a proteja si a vitaliza celulele stem dermice, refacand astfel matricea dermica si imbunatatind simtitor fermitatea pielii. Testele efectuate au demonstrat diminuarea cu pana la 26% a ridurilor si cresterea densitatii pielii cu 12%, dupa 8 saptamani de utilizare, prin aplicare de 2 ori pe zi.  Uleiul de argan bio reprezinta o sursa importanta de vitamine, antioxidanti si acizi grași esentiali. Hraneste epiderma, o regenerează, reface stratul lipidic al acesteia și o protejeaza de actiunea nociva a radicalilor liberi. Hydrovitonul, principiul activ de hidratare, creste capacitatea pielii de a retine apa si asigura mentinerea hidratarii optime a epidermei. Pudra de orez este o alternativa naturala pentru pastrarea unui ten catifelat si matasos, prin proprietatile de absorbtie a sebumului si de matifiere. Filtrele solare, impreuna cu vitamina E naturala protejeaza pielea in mod activ impotriva efectelor nocive ale radiatiilor UVA/UVB.

Este o crema cu textura usoara, care se absoarbe usor in piele, hidratand fara a lasa o pelicula grasa Este o baza excelenta pentru machiaj, in cazul unui ten mixt, efectul matifiant mentinandu-se pana la 4 ore. Are un miros discret, dulceag, care persista dupa aplicare si, foarte important, SPF 15. Produsul vine intr-un recipient elegant si totodata igienic, prevazut cu pompita, de 50 ml si costa doar 26,60 lei.

Spring and summer come not only with longer days, late sunsets, holidays and outdoor activities, but also with hot weather and sweat, which predispose to clogged pores and even acne. Sweat, mixed with excess sebum, dust and bacteria, blocks pores, resulting in the appearance of pimples. Also, the keratolytic effect of the sun on the skin (increased skin regeneration rate when exposed to sunlight) leads to dead cells lingering on its surface for a longer period of time, thus blocking the pores. Therefore, a proper skin care routine is required in the warm season. It’s important not to omit hydration just because it’s summer. The solution is a quality mattifying cream with non-fat texture and, most importantly, added sunscreen.

Founded in 1991 in Cluj Napoca, Cosmetic Plant is a family owned company and one of the leading Romanian personal care producers, with its wide range of nature-inspired quality products, winners of several international awards and prizes.

Based on an innovative ingredient, stem cell extract from argan sprouts, the GreenStem mattifying antiaging day cream for normal-combination skin helps maintain the skin’s natural recovery processes by stimulating stem cells situated in its deep layer, the dermis. Dermal stem cells are the source of continual skin renewal. In time, the efficiency of these new cell “factories” decreases and the synthesis of collagen and elastin is reduced, leading to a less toned skin, with wrinkles and spots. Science steps in through recent discoveries, namely plant stem cells, that can restore the dermal stem cells’ ability to renew and form new cells involved in the synthesis of collagen and elastin, and consequently, render the skin firm, elastic and supple.

Organic argan oil is an important source of vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids. It nourishes and regenerates the skin, restores its lipid layer and protects it from the harmful action of free radicals. Hydroviton, moisturizing active ingredient, is a cocktail of substances that increase the skin’s ability to retain water and contribute to maintaining optimal skin hydration. The rice powder is a natural alternative for maintaining a smooth and silky skin, through sebum absorption and mattifying properties. The UV filters, together with the natural vitamin E, protect the skin actively against the harmful effects of UVA/ UVB radiation.

Beneficiile algelor marine: Alagaderm

Este cunoscut faptul ca alegele marine au un continut ridicat de vitamine si minerale. Produsele cosmetice pe baza de alge au castigat in popularitate, datorita efectelor de intinerire, calmare si hidratare. Intrucat se adreseaza tuturor tipurilor de ten si au reputatia de a oferi rezultate vizibile intr-un timp record, sunt extrem de populare in randul celebritatilor. Un exemplu este gama exclusivista La Mer, alegerea multor vedete, cu preturi pe masura faimei. Fiind fan declarat al produselor romanesti, vestea crearii gamei Algaderm Anti – Age de la Gerocossen nu putea decat sa ma bucure. Cu 98% ingrediente de provenienta naturala, fara parabeni sau alergeni, produsele din gama promit capacitate sporita de hidratare a tenului, stimularea productiei de elastina si colagen, pentru un ten intinerit, cu aspect neted si luminos.

Amsterdam in 3 days

RO:

Amsterdam este un oras care poate fi vizitat lejer intr-un city break de 3-4 zile. Daca in cazul altor destinatii nu am reusit sa bifez toate obiectivele de pe lista, aici am vizitat chiar suplimentar fata de planul initial. Este adevarat, insa, ca trebuie sa fii matinal si sa te misti rapid, intrucat majoritatea obiectivelor se inchid la ora 17, foarte putine fiind deschise pana la ora 18.

Din aeroportul Schiphol ai optiunea de a lua trenul sau autobuzul, ambele costand aproximativ 5 euro. Recomand calduros cardul I Amsterdam, care poate fi achizitionat chiar din aeroport (77 euro de persoana pentru 72 de ore) si include transport gratuit cu orice mijloc de transport (mai putin trenul sau autobuzul catre aeroport), o croaziera gratuita cu barca pe canale, intrari gratuite la principalele obiective si reduceri la altele.

Prima zi va fi, cu siguranta, dedicata luarii pulsului orasului. Eu am inceput cu o infuzie de cultura: Muzeul Van Gogh, care nu adaposteste exclusiv lucrari ale celebrului pictor, ci si ale altor artisti, contemporani cu el. Lucrarile sunt organizate cronologic, oferind vizitatorilor posibilitatea de  a observa indeaproape evolutia artistului. La intrare este mereu coada, iar in interior, fotografierea este interzisa.

Muzeul Diamantelor se afla in Piata Muzeelor, Museumplein. Daca va fascineaza diamantele si bijuteriile luxoase, o oprire aici va va transporta intr-o lume de vis. Veti afla cum se aduna, selecteaza si prelucreaza carbonul pana la perfectiunea unui diamant si cum a ajuns Amsterdam sa fie supranumit “orasul diamantelor”.

Piata Dam, situata in centrul istoric, foarte aproape de principalul nod de transport, gara Amsterdam Centraal, este cu siguranta locul catre care duc toate drumurile. Atractia principala este cladirea neoclasica a Palatului Regal (Koninklijk Palace), care a servit ca primarie a orașului din 1655 pana la transformarea in resedinta regala, in 1808. Alaturi se afla biserica gotica din secolul al XV-lea Nieuwe Kerk (Biserica Noua) și Muzeul de ceara Madame Tussaud’s, varianta olandeza. Monumentul Național, un stalp din piatra alba, proiectat de J.J.P. Oud si ridicat in 1956 pentru a comemora victimele celui de-al Doilea Razboi Mondial, domina partea opusa a pietei. Tot in piata veti gasi NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky și magazinul de lux De Bijenkorf. Piata Dam leaga strazile Damrak si Rokin, care se intind de-a lungul albiei initiale a raului Amstel, de la Centraal Station catre Muntplein (Piața Monetariei) si Munttoren (Turnul Monetariei). Dam marcheaza, de asemenea, capatul strazilor comerciale Nieuwendijk, Kalverstraat si Damstraat, de-a lungul carora trebuie sa faceti o plimbare, chiar daca nu intentionati sa cumparati ceva anume, macar pentru magazinele cu branza si mostre gratuite pentru degustare. La doi pasi de piata se afla mall-ul Magna Plaza, iar dincolo de coltul de nord-est, principalul cartier al felinarelor rosii, de Wallen.

EN:

Amsterdam is a city that can be visited easily during a 3-4 day city break. However, you will have to be an early riser and fast mover, since most objectives close at 5 PM, very few at 6 PM.

From Schiphol Airport you can either take the train or the bus, both for about 5 euros (one way). I recommend the I Amsterdam Card, which can be purchased from the airport (77 euros per person for 72 hours) and includes free unlimited use of public transportation, a free canal cruise, free entry to the main museums and attractions and discounts for others.

I started the first day at the Van Gogh Museum, which does not exclusively host works of the famous painter, but also of his contemporaries. The exhibition is organized chronologically, giving visitors the opportunity to closely observe the artist’s evolution. Photographing is prohibited inside.

Located in the Museum Square, Museumplein, between Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum, the Diamond Museum is the right stop, if you are fascinated with luxury diamonds and jewels. You will learn why Amsterdam became known as the “city of diamonds.”

Dam Square is located in the city historical center, very close to the main transportation hub, Amsterdam Centraal Station.  The main attraction is the neoclassical building of the Royal Palace (Koninklijk Palace), which served as town hall from 1655 until its conversion to a royal residence in 1808. Next to it is the 15th century Gothic Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) and the Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum. The National Monument, a white stone pillar, designed by J.J.P. Oud and erected in 1956, to commemorate the victims of the Second World War, dominates the opposite side of the square. Also overlooking the square are the NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky and the upscale De Bijenkorf department store. Dam Square links streets Damrak and Rokin, which run along the course of the Amstel River, from Centraal Station to Muntplein (Mint Square) and Munttoren (Mint Tower). It also marks the endpoint of shopping streets Nieuwendijk, Kalverstraat and Damstraat, along which you have to take a stroll, even if you do not intend to buy anything in particular, at least for the sake of cheese shops, with free tasting samples. The Magna Plaza Mall is close to the square and beyond the north-eastern corner lies the main red light district: the Wallen. All these have turned the Dam into a tourist zone.

Cea de-a doua zi a debutat cu o plimbare cu barca pe canale. Imbarcarea pentru varianta aleasa de mine se face din fata garii Centraal. Croaziera dureaza aproximativ o ora si beneficiezi atat de ghid la bord, cat si de o prezentare preinregistrata, disponibila in mai multe limbi de circulatie internationala, asa ca vei afla detalii interesante despre Amsterdam si Olanda.

Am poposit apoi la gradina botanica De Hortus, una dintre cele mai vechi din lume (fondata in 1638, fiind initial o mica gradina de plante medicinale, vizitata mai ales de medici si farmacisti, cu precadere in timpul epidemiilor de ciuma), o oaza de liniste si relaxare, care adaposteste plante locale, continentale sau exotice (are 7 sere). Nu ratati casa fluturilor, De Vlinderkas, unde acestia zboara intr-o atmosfera tropicala, printre arbori de cacao, de ceai, trestie de zahar, arbori de piper sau tulpini de orez si se infrupta din felii de portocale sau banana, spre incantarea vizitatorilor.

In apropiere se afla Artis Royal Zoo, cea mai veche gradina zoologica din Olanda, fondata in 1838. Este impartita in patru arii principale: gradina zoologica, planetariu, gradini botanice si muzeu de zoologie. Lipita de Artis veti gasi cladirea Micropia, singurul muzeu dedicat microbilor din lume, gazda unei colectii de microbi, virusuri, ciuperci si bacterii, cel mai adesea asociate cu bolile, insa uneori esentiale pentru supravietuirea noastra. Puteti observa indeaproape chiar si comportamentul si activitatile subterane ale unei colonii de furnici, in 3 acvarii transparente.

The second day started with a canal cruise. It takes about an hour and you benefit from both an on-board guide and a pre-recorded presentation, available in many languages, therefore you will find out interesting details about Amsterdam and the Netherlands.

The De Hortus botanical garden, one of the oldest in the world (founded in 1638, initially a small herb garden, visited mostly by doctors and pharmacists, especially during plague epidemics), an oasis of tranquility and relaxation that hosts local, continental and exotic plants (inside its 7 greenhouses). Do not miss the butterfly house, De Vlinderkas, where butterflies fly in a tropical atmosphere and stop to feed on orange and banana slices, to the delight of visitors.

Nearby is the Artis Royal Zoo, the oldest zoo in the Netherlands, founded in 1838. It is divided into four main areas: the zoo, the planetarium, the botanical gardens and the zoology museum. Immediately near is the Micropia building, the only museum dedicated to microbes in the world, hosting a collection of microbes, viruses, fungi and bacteria, most often associated with diseases, but sometimes essential to our survival. Inside you can even closely observe the behavior and underground activities of an ant colony, in three transparent aquariums.

Am inceput ziua 3 cu turul stadionului Amsterdam Arena, al echipei Ajax. Tururile se fac exclusiv cu ghid si ai acces inclusiv in vestiare, sala dedicata conferintelor de presa si muzeu.

Casa memoriala Rembrandt mi-a placut in mod deosebit. Este chiar una dintre casele in care artistul a trait si a pictat, in perioada 1639-1656. Cand s-a mutat in ea, Rembrandt, atunci in varsta de 33 de ani, avand deja reputatia unui pictor de succes, nu a putut plati pe loc suma fabuloasa de 13 mii de guldeni pretinsa, asa ca a ales varianta platii in rate. Suma neplatita la timp avea sa ii aduca ulterior declinul financiar, casa si bunurile fiindu-i confiscate si vandute la licitatie. Rembrandt s-a mutat intr-o casuta inchiriata pe Rozengracht, unde si-a petrecut tot restul vietii, pana in 1669. Sunt expuse aici atat picturi si gravuri ale pictorului, cat si ale unora dintre invataceii sai.

Nemo science center este o cladire cu 5 etaje, de forma unui vapor, cu tot soiul de joculete si experimente special realizate pentru a facilita invatarea si intelegerea de catre copii a fenomenelor naturale. Merita o vizita daca ai copiii, iar terasa de la ultimul etaj ofera o priveliste superba.

Ultima oprire a fost Muzeul Maritim sau Het Scheepvaart Museum, pe numele sau olandez. Deţine cea mai importanta colectie de vase din lume, diferite modele de machete si harti, care poarta vizitatorii intr-o incursiune in istoria maritima olandeza.

Trebuie sa stiti ca in mijloacele de transport, cardul se valideaza atat la urcare, cat si la coborare. Atentie mare la biciclisti, care sunt multi, nu claxoneaza si nu te evita, asa poti fi lovit cu usurinta daca nu esti atent, mai ales ca unii dintre ei nici nu circula exclusiv pe pistele dedicate!

EN:

Day three started at Ajax’s Amsterdam Arena stadium. The tours are exclusively guided and you have access to the locker rooms, the conference room and the museum.

I genuinely enjoyed the Rembrandt memorial house. It is actually one of the houses where the artist lived and painted between 1639 and 1656. When he moved there, Rembrandt, then 33, with an already established reputation as a successful artist, was unable to pay the fabulous amount of 13,000 guilders on spot, so she chose to pay it off in installments. The unpaid amount would later bring his financial decline, with the house and assets being seized and sold at auction. Rembrandt consequently moved in a rented house on Rozengracht street, where he spent the rest of his life until 1669. The museum hosts both paintings and engravings of the painter and some of his scholars.

Nemo Science Museum is a five-floor science center, with all sorts of games and experiments, designed to facilitate children’s learning and understanding of natural phenomena. It is worth a visit if you have children, and the top floor terrace offers a great view.

The last stop was the Maritime Museum (Het Scheepvaart). It contains many artefacts associated with shipping and sailing (paintings, scale models, weapons and world maps).

You should know that cards must be validated both when you get on and off public transportations means. Beware of the many cyclists, they do not avoid pedestrians and often get off the dedicated tracks, so you run the risk of being hit if you are not careful!

Favoritele lunii februarie

Am adunat cateva produse noi in ultima perioada, asa ca m-am gandit sa va vorbesc despre fiecare in parte, intr-o postare colectiva. Sunt atat produse de ingrijire personala, cat si de machiaj si chiar accesorii si decoratiuni interioare. Anotimpul rece mi se pare oricum ideal pentru a incerca noutati in materie de ingrijire si nu numai, datorita serilor lungi, cu ceai fierbinte si momente pentru tine.

I gathered a few new products lately, so I thought I’d talk about each one in a collective post. There are personal care products, make-up products, even accessories and home decorations. The cold season seems ideal for trying out novelties, due to longer evenings with hot tea and many moments for yourself.

La jumatatea lunii februarie, Melkior a lansat luciul de buze Ultrashine. Are textura usoara, confortabila, nelipicioasa, putandu-se aplica atat de sine statator, pentru un efect de stralucire, cat si peste rujurile mate pentru a crea iluzia de buze mai pline. Eu am varianta Sirena, un mov foarte frumos si purtabil, mult mai pal decat arata ambalajul, cu particule de glitter.

In mid-February, Melkior launched the Ultrashine Lip gloss. It has an easy, comfortable texture and can be applied both on its own, for a glowing effect or over matte lipsticks, to create fuller lip illusion. I have the Sirena version, a very beautiful purple, much softer than what the packaging shows, with glitter particles.

 

Un alt produs destinat ingrijirii buzelor care imi place foarte mult este rujul lichid Cupio Mattix. Aplicatorul heart-shaped, cel mai bun testat de mine vreodata, are o adancitura care capteaza produs si il distribuie uniform, avand o forma ideala pentru a realiza un contur perfect al buzelor. Produsul are textura cremoasa, satinata, care nu lasa buzele lipicioase, aroma delicioasa si rezistenta crescuta. Gama contine zece nuante, de la nude pana la rosu, roz si maroniu. Nuanta mea este Bright Sand, insa mai sunt cel putin trei care ma tenteaza.

Another lip care product that I really liked is the Cupio Mattix liquid lipstick. The heart-shaped applicator, the best I‘ve tested so far, captures the product and distributes it evenly, having an ideal shape for creating the perfect lip contour. The product has a creamy, satin-like, non-sticky texture, delicious flavor and high resistance. I comes in ten shades, from nude to red, pink and brown. My shade is Bright Sand, but there are at least three more that tempt me.

Pentru hidratare, am folosit colectia editie limitata de Craciun de la Yves Rocher, cu vanilie alba: gel de dus, lapte de corp si crema de maini. Chiar daca a trecut Craciunul, hidratarea cu aroma de vanilie confera o stare de bine, de caldura si echilibru.

For moisturizing, I used the Yves Rocher Christmas edition with white vanilla: shower gel, body milk and hand cream. Even if Christmas has passed, vanilla always gives a feeling of well-being, warmth and balance.

Samponul si balsamul Schauma Nature Moments cu ulei de masline si aloe vera au intrat recent in rutina mea de ingrijire. Sunt destinate ingrijirii intensive a parului deteriorat, pe care promit sa il hidrateze, redandu-i supletea, volumul, aspectul sanatos si stralucitor. Au aroma delicioasa, raport excelent calitate/pret, lasa parul curat, hidratat si stralucitor.

The Schauma Nature Moments shampoo and conditioner with olive oil and aloe vera have recently entered my hair care routine. They are designed for intensive care of damaged hair. They have delicious flavor, excellent quality/price ratio, leave the hair clean, hydrated and shiny.

 

Imi doream un rucsac intr-o nuanta versatila si l-am comandat pe acesta de pe Dresslily. Materialul este suprinzator de calitativ, cu tinuta, pare a fi piele sau un inlocuitor foarte bun. Singurul inconvenient este faptul ca a sosit la posta vamala, unde sunt cozi interminabile si servicii care lasa de dorit.

I wanted a backpack in a versatile shade and I ordered this one from Dresslily. The design is lovely and the fabric, extremely qualitative.

Coltul meu de relaxare si frumusete este masuta de toaleta eMobili, pe care am decorat-o in nuante de auriu si roz, cu decoratiuni Zara home, H&M home si Pepco.

My little beauty and relaxation corner is the eMobili vanity, decorated in gold and pink, with Zara home, H&M home and Pepco products.

Rasfat pentru piele si minte

RO:

Mai este destul pana la vara, vremea dusurilor revigorante si racoritoare. Temperaturile scazute fac ca alegerea ideala sa fie o baie fierbinte, relaxanta, care, pe langa efectul deconectant, lasa pielea fina si parfumata. Pentru ca rasfatul sa fie complet, ingredientele trebuie sa fie alese cu grija, iar atmosfera, una propice relaxarii. Noile creme pentru dus Family Care Relax, disponibile in patru variante de arome – uleiuri pretioase, ulei de masline, extract de smochine, respectiv sare si alge de mare, au o formula cremoasa, care hraneste pielea. Eu am testat versiunea cu uleiuri pretioase (ulei de macadamia, ulei de argan marocan si ulei de migdae, toate bio), care te invaluie cu aroma ei delicioasa, lasand pielea neteda si catifelata, efect al spumei fine si cremoase.

Pentru un pachet SPA complet in propria casa, sarea de baie Family Care Relax, cu ulei de argan bio, maximizeaza nivelul de hidratare, relaxeaza simturile si are efect calmant, datorita aromei discrete, extrem de placute.

Pentru atmosfera, aprinde cateva lumanari parfumate sau foloseste un difuzor cu betisoare parfumate. Eyfel cu aroma de vanilie inunda rapid intreaga incapere cu mirosul sau luxuriant, somptuos, incantand simurile. O muzica de fundal bine aleasa, care sa te ajute sa te detensionezi, face minuni. Poti savura un ceai sau o cana cu ciocolata calda, ba chiar poti profita pentru a-ti aplica o masca pentru ten. Nu uita sa pregatesti cateva prosoape pufoase, care sa te astepte la iesire si o perna speciala, care sa iti sustina capul.

Produsele Family Care au preturi accesibile si sunt disponibile atat in supermarketuri si hypermarketuri, cat si pe eMAG. Gasiti mai multe informatii si intreaga gama de produse aici.

            The time for refreshing showers is already gone. Lower temperatures call for hot baths, which, in addition to the relaxing effect, leave your skin soft and hydrated. In order for the spoiling ritual to be complete, the ingredients must be chosen carefully and the atmosphere, relaxing.

            For the atmosphere, light up some scented candles or use oil perfume sticks. Eyfel with vanilla flavor, for instance, quickly fills the entire room with its rich, sumptuous, fragrance. Also, some well chosen background music to help you relax can work miracles. You can enjoy a tea or a mug of hot chocolate and you can even take advantage to apply  a mask on your skin. Do not forget to prepare some fluffy towels for when you come out and a special pillow to hold your head.

            The new Family Care Relax creamy shower gels, available in four flavors – precious oils, olive oil, fig extract and salt and seaweed, have a creamy formula that nourishes the skin. I tested the version with precious oils (macadamia oil, Moroccan argan oil and almond oil, all organic), which leaves your skin smooth, due to its creamy foam. For a complete SPA package in your own home, the Family Care Relax bath salt, with organic argan oil, maximizes moisture, relaxes the senses and has a calming effect, due to its discrete, yet extremely pleasant, smell.
