My latest emptieees : Crema hidratanta Apidava – o gasiti aici, eu am luat-o de la un magazin naturist, se prezinta ca fiind o crema hidratanta, cu miere si propolis, cu efect antirid si antioxidant, buna pentru prevenirea cosurilor si pentru cicatrizarea ranilor. Cum mi s-a parut mie: o crema aparent grasa, dar care dupa circa 5 minute intra in piele si ii da un aspect aproape mat, destul de hranitoare, nu mi-a cauzat nici o problema, intr-adevar mi s-a parut ca ajuta in combaterea cate unui mic cos care mai aparea. Mirosul nu e unul din cele mai delicioase, are o aroma cumva inchisa, grea, care cred ca e din cauza propolisului ( mama fiind big fan propolis, l-am intalnit in toate formele sale si ii stiu mirosul). Concluzia : o crema buna, de  calitate, naturala, nu e scumpa, ce-i drept are doar 30 de ml, dar daca sunteti in cautarea unui produs naturist pentru ten, matifiant putin dar foarte hidratant, eu zis sa incercati.

Moisturizing cream Apidava , with honey and propolis, supposed to help with healing wounds and fighting break-outs. It was a pretty heavy cream at the beginning but once it sinked in, it really sinked in, and you couldn’t see a greasy layer at all, actually i thought it created a bit of a matte effect. It didn’t cause any problems on my skin, actually I think it helped with healing zits. The smell is not the most appealing one, it smells sort of heavy, propolis like, an old beekeeper smell 😛 but it’s cheap, it does have only 30 ml but it’s good just to see if it approves with your skin and it has natural ingredients.

Petal Quartz – Oriflame – un parfum pe care-l am de ceva vreme, de pe cand inca mai comandam de la Oriflame, a stat mult timp pedepsit intr-un colt pentru ca e genul de aroma pe care nu o folosesti zilnic, si in nici un caz vara. Pe Fragrantica apare ca fiind un parfum floral, cu note de trandafir, frezie, vanilie, musky. Mie sincer mi se pare prea puternic, prea aromat, am citit ca asta s-ar putea sa fie si din cauza concentratiei prea mare de alcool. Am folosit aproape jumatate din el dupa care l-am maritat mamei, pe care orice parfum miroase a high luxury brands 😦 . Mi se mai facea pofta de el dupa ce il simteam pe ea, dar ma vindecam repede. Mai are inca un 5% sa zic de produs in sticla, dar din cauza formei amabalajului nu ai cum sa mai storci nimic din el.

Petal Quartz – Oriflame – I’ve gad this perfume for a while now, it’s a very heavy, overpowering, musky, dark smell…Online, on Fragrantica it goes as having notes of roses, vanilla, freesia, floral smell, which all sounds good, but I could hardly wear it, especially never ever wear this on a summer’s day. The powerful nasty smell might be because of a huge alcohol concentration, but I just read that, I’m not an expert. I gave it to my mother in the end, because on her even the cheapest perfume lasts for days and smells like Chanel no 5. 

Celebre – Avon – un alt parfum pe care l-a terminat mama. Imi place cum miroase, dar dupa o ora nu se mai simte deloc pe pielea mea, asa ca i l-am dat ei, si din nou, pe ea miroase a parfum de 500 de lei si aroma persista pana la 12 ore. Asta e…Tot de pe Fragrantica, are note de piper, note fructate, bujor, frezie, lacramioare, magnolie. Probabil l-am luat pentru ca am vazut cuvantul frezie pe undeva, tot timpul bag botul la parfumuri cu note de frezie.

Celebre – Avon – another perfume that mother finished. I like the smell but on me it only lasted an hour. This generally goes with most of Avon/Oriflame perfumes on my skin. On Fragrantica it has notes of fruitsies, freesia, lily of the valley, magnolia, peony, pepper.

Neutrogena crema de maini – sau mai bine sa-i zicem vaselina de maini, pentru cine nu a incercat-o niciodata, nu are consistenta unei creme, ci a unui balsam foarte gros si gras, trasnparent, exact ca vaselina. Miroase ok, foarte slab, un miros generic, gen Nivea, intra in piele intr-adevar foarte repede si ai nevoie doar de 2 bobite mici pentru aplicare. M-am cam plictisit de ea insa pe final, e genul de crema pe care o porti in geanta 3 ani pana sa o dai gata.

Neutrogena hand cream – or shall we call it hand vaseline, because that’s what it is, and how it looks like. Greasy, heavy, transparent,  gelly thing. Granted, it does sink in rapidly, it has a neutral Nivea-like smell, and you only need 2 little blobs for one go. But, boy, did it get boring after a while. 😛 

Tratamentul pasta de dinti Pearl Drops – o stim cu totii, e pasta de dinti care ne promite dinti mai albi in x zile. La mine poate a functionat, zic poate pentru ca e diferenta aproape insesizabila, dar parca parca da, a facut ceva. Ramane sa continui mai mult timp cred, eu dupa tubul asta am uitat sa mai iau, asa ca tot degeaba. Raman la pasta de dinti cu efect de albire deocamdata.

Pearl Drops whitening treatment – I have tried this a couple years ago and decided to give it another go. I can’t say it’s bad, after just one tube it did brighten up my teeth a bit, but not noticeably, and I should’ve gotten another one and continue for good results but I’m lazy and irresponsible like that.

Si daca tot veni vorba de pasta de dinti pentru albire, mai am in poza o Dentalux, luata de la Lidl, care nu m-a incantat. Nu se simte o curatare prea in profunzime dupa periaj si nici o senzatie minty prea de durata.

Another toothpaste, Dentalux, not so minty, not so fresh a feeling, just a general meh. 

Masca de fata Balea – cu aloe vera, shea, jojoba si miere, nu miroase special, nu face nimic special, nu o sa mai cumpar.

Balea face mask with aloe vera, jojoba and honey, does not smell nice, does not do anything at all, it’s just a plain white creamy mask. 

Sapun Tesori d’Oriente – white musk – imi plac parfumurile Tesori si miros superb, am zis sa incerc si cu sapunurile, dar cel de fata are intr-adevar un miros de mosc, dar e foarte foarte subtil, fiind ucis din fasa de mirosul acela de sapun ieftin, de rufe, de sodiu, nu stiu cum sa ma exprim. Meh 😦 …

Tesori d’Oriente soap White Musk – i like the Tesori body perfumes, they are great smelling and last for a whole day but the soap is meh, it smells like grandma’s laundry soap, the kind you do at home, and doesn not lather so much either. 

Nivea spuma de curatare – am mai vorbit de ea, mi-a placut, curata bine, miroase bine, face spuma generoasa, dupa ce termin ce mai am, s-ar putea sa o iau din nou daca nu sunt tentata de alte lucruri noi.

Nivea cleansing foam– I’ve mentioned this before, it’s a nice foamy cleanser, smells niveaish, cleans ok, i would repurchase again if I wouldn’t want to try other stuff.

Activa Plant – sampon pentru par vopsit pe baza de Heliogenol ( ingredient activ din floarea soarelui). Imi plac sampoanele Activa plant, sunt de calitate, sunt romanesti, cu ingrediente naturale, nu sunt scumpe. Acesta mi-a mai mentinut putin catsaniul inchis dat peste satenul meu deschis, dar deja parul meu a ajuns in punctul in care nici un sampon pt par vopsit nu o sa-i mai poate face nimic, au trecut vreo 2 luni de la ultima vopsire si asa va ramane pentru ca vreau sa las spatiu culorii initiale sa se desfasoare din nou. E un sampon bun, dar parca totusi imi place mai mult cel cu soia, tot de la ei, era mai bland cu parul si il lasa stralucitor.

Activa Plant shampoo for colored hair, with Heliogenol, some sort of substance extracted from sunflower. I like Activa Plant shampoos, they’re a romanian brand and they’re quality. It did keep my brown color a bit longer, but I’m trying to grow my natural color again so no colored hair shampoo is gonna help me much at this point, and I’ves till got a couple :P. I did like the soy shampoo from Activa more. 

Gel de dus, ulei, Fa Sensual cu argan, migdale si marula – imi plac uleiurile de dus, mi se par mult mai hidratante si blande. Acesta a mirosit bine, a migdale putin fructate. Face spuma destul de bine pentru un ulei si curata. Me likesy.

Fa Sensual shower gel, with argan oil, almonds and marula – I love shower oils, they’re so much cozyer and comfy, and hydrating, and this one smelled good too, and really lathered. Liked it. 

Bubchen Crema pentru copii – fara parabeni, cu oxid de zinc, musetel, ceara de albine, ulei de grau. Cred ca am luat-o acum multa vreme, dupa ce citisem ca oxidul de zinc e bun pentru cosuri, dar fiind foarte grasa, m-am lecuit de ea curand si am mai folosit-o doar pe picioare. Evident ca m-am chinuit degeaba cu ea pe ten, ea fiind pentru fundulete de nou-nascuti, dar asta e. Lasa un film alb daca nu e intinsa bine, e foarte grasa, nu e foarte hidratanta, miroase delicat.

Bubchen baby cream – no parabens, with chamomile, zinc oxide, beeswax and wheat oil. I read a while ago that zinc oxide was good for breakouts, and many a people praised the baby creams. It was too greasy though and just sat there on the skin forever, not sinking in, and I just ended  up using it on my feet, although its main purpose is infants buts. But there you go. If you don’t massage it in it will stay like a white film on top, other than that, hydrating not so much, and it smells like baby breath.
