Garnier Essentials Calming 2in1 Make-Up Remover

3/08/2013


I used to love the green Garnier Essentials Clean&Invirogating Toner and I actually still do but this one took the first place without any doubt. So let's rummage through some basics regarding this awesomely awesome make-up remover. It comes in a basic and pretty standard Garnier plastic bottle. The lid is quite good and doesn't become flimsy with time. On the label you'll clearly notice the "without perfume, alcohol or rubbing" and does it live up to the expectations? It surely does. This make-up remover is suitable for sensitive skin and although mine isn't sensitive all the time, it does have its moments of hypersensitivity. It never irritated my skin or delicate eyes, quite the opposite. The feeling when you soak up your cotton pad with it and just gently press it on the eyes is very cooling and soothing. 

Nekada sam bila ocarana sa Garnier Essentials Clean&Invirogating tonerom koji mi je i dalje jako drag ali je ovaj skidac sminke ipak zasjeo na prvo mjesto. Predjimo preko nekih osnova po pitanju ovog savrseno savrsenog skidaca sminke. Pakovanje je prilicno standardna Garnierova plasticna bocica. Poklopac je sasvim okej i ne opusti se tokom koristenja. Na naljepnici vise nego jasno pise "bez parfema, alkohola ili trljanja" a da li opravdava ocekivanja? Itekako. Ovaj skidac sminke odgovara i osjetljivim ocima te iako moje oci nisu stalno osjetljive imaju svojih momenata hiperosjetljivosti. Ne iritira mi kozu i ne iritira mi oci, cak suprotno. Osjecaj kada natopite blaznice ovim skidacem i blago ih pritisnete na oci je umirujuci i osvjezavajuci.


It is suitable to be used to remove make-up on the eyes and from the entire face actually. It's brilliant with taking off BB creams and foundations, all kinds of blushes and bronzers. Eyeliners and liquid liners dissolve in seconds, eye shadows distintegrate when they come in contact with it. Lipsticks melt and mascaras, even the waterproof ones, melt as well. There really is no need to rub, thug or press your skin with force to take anything off with it because it's extremely effective whilst being so gentle. Even though it doesn't contain perfume it does have a very mild and enjoyable, soothing smell. It's enriched with a plant extract and soothing pro-vitamin B5. If we're going to believe the label, it doesn't have alcohol hence the gentle character of it.

Savrseno je sposoban skinuti sminku sa ociju ali i sa cijelog lica. Perfektno skida zadnje tragove BB krema i tecnih podloga sa lica, sve vrste bronzera i rumenila takodjer. Olovke za oci i ajlajneri se rastope u par sekundi a sjene za oci se dezintegrisu pri samom kontaktu sa njim. Otopiti ce i ruzeve za usne i maskare, pa cak i vodootporne. Stvarno nema potrebe da trljate, povlacite ili pritiscete kozu koristeci silu kako bi bilo sta skinuli jer je izuzetno efektan a pri tome blag. Iako ne sadrzi parfeme, jako je blagog i ugodnog mirisa. Obogacen je biljnim ekstraktom i umirujucim pro-vitaminom B5. Ako cemo vjerovati spisku sastojaka, stvarno ne sadrzi alkohol.


What is pretty obvious is that this is a bi-phase make-up remover and you need to shake it up to mix the oils (darker bluish part on the top) with the cleansing water (the lighter bluish bottom half). When you squeeze it on the cotton pad it seems to be milky due to the two phases mixing. Now, my skin is dehydrated mixed/combo type of skin and I need to be careful not to use anything that could clog my pores and make a mess on my face. Even though it does have gentle oils inside, not a blemish can be reported. It does soften my skin noticeably and keeps it moisturized in a way but I don't feel any oiliness. If you feel a wattery residue at first, it evapourates in seconds and there's no film on the skin left. You don't need much to remove a whole face of make-up and I have used many, many make-up removers but neither one can come close to this one, regardless of the price. The ridicously low price for such a high-quality product is a bonus. This is now my HG make-up remover and a HG product altogether. I simply cannot imagine my day without it, I cannot imagine my night shifts without it and I certainly cannot imagine coming home after 12 hours at work with a full face of make-up that is begging me to take it off without it. I will be going back to it over and over again, I just hope it sticks around for a long time.

Ono sto je ocigledno jeste da je rijec o dvofaznom skidacu sminke pa ga treba protresti prije upotrebe kako bi se pomijesala ulja (tamnije plavi dio pri vrhu) sa vodicom za ciscenje (svjetlije plava polovica pri dnu). Kada ga nanesete na blaznicu izgleda pomalo mlijecno jer su se te dvije faze pomijesale. Moja koza je dehidrirani mjesoviti/kombinirani tip i nastojim biti pazljiva da ne koristim nesto sto bi mi zacepilo pore i napravilo nered na licu. Iako sadrzi njezna ulja, nije mi izazvao niti jednu aknicu. Primjetno omeksa kozu pa je i hidrira ali ne osjetim nikakav mastan trag. Tek po ciscenju osjetim da mi je lice vlazno i taj osjecaj nestane za koju sekundu i ne ostavlja nikakav film na kozi kada ispari. Nije ga ni potrebno mnogo kako bi se skinula sminka sa cijelog lica i koristila sam dosta skidaca ali niti jedan mu nije blizu. Cak ne uzimajuci cijenu u obzir. Ova prilicno smijesna cijena za ovako kvalitetan proizvod je samo dobrodosao dodatak. Ovo je sada moj HG skidac sminke, moj HG proizvod uopste. Ne mogu zamisliti dan bez njega, niti svoje nocne smjene. A definitivno ne mogu zamisliti bez njega ni doci kuci nakon 12 sati sa posla sa sminkom na cijelom licu koje me moli da sve skinem. Vracati cu mu se iznova i samo se nadam da ce se zadrzati u prodaji jako dugo vremena.

    1. It really is very good and surprisingly cheap!
      It does calm my sometimes sensitive skin but is a ferocious make-up remover.
      Definitely something to recommend :)

  2. Vidis ja sam uvijek koristila samo dove sapun za skidanje sminke(te s vremena na vrijeme afroditinu pjenu "stop acne), jer nisam nista mogla naci sto nece isusiti moju vec presuhu kozu - moracu probati i ovo - hvala na savjetu :)))

    1. Uh, i ja sam dugo godina koristila Dove pa sam cak i koristila tu Afroditinu pjenu sto spominjes, znas kada je bila u onom starijem pakovanju. Bila mi je jako, jako dobra ali mi je pocela isusivati nos i celo iz nekog razloga. Mislim da sam pretjerivala malo sa njom jer mi se bas dopadala pa malo-malo umijem se s njom hehe :))
      Mislim da je ovo savrseno nesto za suhu kozu i bas zato sto je formulisan i za osjetljivu, mislim da skoro nema nikakve sanse da je iziritira. Meni do sada nije i iako ima primamljivijih skidaca koji ljepse izgledaju, mirisu, luksuzniji su (ako uopste padas na te stvari) ovaj Garnier se moze mjeriti i sa mnogo, mnogo skupljim skidacima a pravo je jeftin. Mislim da ga definitivno vrijedi probati :)

    1. Potpuno te razumijem, nekome oni odgovaraju, nekome ne.
      Meni su njihovi toneri stvarno solidni a ovaj skidac sminke je izvrstan.
      Ako imas eventualno osjetljivu kozu, mislim da ti je nece iziritirati. Odlican je za normalnu, mjesovitu poput moje i suhu kozu. Samo nisam sigurna za onu bas, bas masnu kozu jer znam kako je meni bilo kada sam je i ja imala prije koju godinu. Jednostavno ili ti nesto "legne" ili ne. Skroz je subjektivno. Ali generalno, mislim da se tesko moze fulati sa njim.
