Hands & Nails Care Guide

11/25/2013


My favorite hand cream - any hand cream from L'Occitane. They have the best affordable hand creams that actually do something. My favorite would be the Shea butter (especially the Shea butter & Honey one) and Almond one with the addition of the Fleur d'Or & Acacia* due to its majestic scent. Besides my L'Occitane obsession, I have the utmost respect towards the Burt's Bees Almond & Milk Beeswax hand cream. It has helped my nails as well as my hands. The best, most emollient hand treatment I've encountered so far. And I love the marzipan smell (some people pick up the herbal note). From the drugstore range my love goes towards the Neutrogena hand creams. Going towards the really affordable range I've discovered a terrific hand cream - Flormar Olive Oil* hand cream. It is non-sticky yet it's very moisturizing. I also enjoy using oils on my hands, nails and cuticles. I love my Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse and I use it every other night before going to bed. It's very luxurious and smells divine. The first nail oil I turned out to luurve is the Revelique Nail Oil which smells of juicy melons and soothes even the most sore cuticles. The final nail and cuticle oil I favor is my latest discovery and this one is also cheap as chips. Flormar Nourishing Oil with Vitamin E* also smells delicious and is least greasy of all three.

Moja omiljena krema za ruke vec godinama je bilo koja krema iz L'Occitane-a Jednostavno mi se iz dosadasnjeg iskustva cini kako ovaj brend u ponudi ima najbolje kreme za ruke koje su ipak pristupacne cijene u odnosu na kvalitet koji nude. Omiljena mi je od karite putera (posebno od karite putera i meda) te od badema ali mi je posebno draga i nova edicija kreme iz praznicne Fleur d'Or & Acacia*  linije. Pored opsesije sa L'Occitane-om, mozda ponajvise cijenim kao proizvod ove vrste Burt's Bees Almond & Milk Beeswax kremu za ruke. Pomogla mi je kako suhim rukama, tako i noktima te je najhranljivija, najemolijentnija krema koju sam do sada pronasla. Da ne spominjem koliko volim miris marcipana (iako neki ljudi osjete neke biljne note). Od drogerijskih krema za ruke moj glas ide Neutrogeninim kremama. No od iznimno pristupacnih (citaj:jeftinih) krema volim Flormar kremu za ruke sa maslinovim uljem*, koja je nedavno otkrice. Nije ljepljiva i lijepo hidratizira kozu. Takodjer volim koristiti i odredjena ulja kao poseban korak u njezi ruku, noktica i zanoktica. Krasno mi je  Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse koje koristim svake druge noci prije nego odem na spavanac. Ali prvo ulje za nokte i zanoktice koje sam zavoljela je Revelique ulje za nokte. Mirise na socne dinje te pomaze zacijeliti i najbolnije zanoktice. Posljednje ulje pogodno za njegu zanoktica je nevjerovatno niske cijene. Rijec je o  Flormar hranljivom ulju sa vitaminom E* koje takodjer mirise slasno ali najmanje je uljano od navedenih.




Nail strengthening treatments are next and these three are very good. The most talked about would be the Eveline 8in1 Intensive Nail Conditioner. I think that most of you have heard about it so I won't harp on any longer - you know that it's good. However, I've stumbled upon a dupe of this Eveline nail treatment. Revelique Nail Hardener* is the exact replica of it and it works, smells and looks the same way. My thorough comparison will soon be posted on the blog. Finally, Flormar 4in1 Complete Nail Care treatment is something I use as a base and top coat but it mostly helped me get my nails back into shape. As base coats and top coats go, Revelique Base & Top Coat* is the best one from the affordable range for me. It preps the nail plate for nail polish and it doubles up as a non-bubbly top coat. I've mentioned once that I have psoriasis and people with tendency to psoriasis often have wavy nail plates. Many nail polishes accentuate the irregular surface of the nail and I've found that the Revelique Ridge Filler* does help with that. It isn't a miracle worker but combined with a forgiving nail polish, it does help my nails look much better.

Tretmani za jacanje noktica su slijedeci na popisu a naredna tri su mi se pokazala kao jako dobra. Onaj o kojem se najcesce prica je ubjedljivo Eveline 8in1 Intensive Nail Conditioner. Mislim da je vecina vas cula za ovaj proizvod pa necu trositi rijeci - znate da je odlican. No ipak, moram spomenuti kako sam naisla na njegov dupe. Revelique Nail Hardener* je potpuno identicna stvar kao i Eveline tretman po tome kako djeluje, mirise i kako izgleda na noktima. Neka temeljnija usporedba ce se uskoro naci na blogu. Napokon, imamo i Flormar 4in1 Complete Nail Care tretman kojeg koristim kao bazni lak ali i nadlak no ipak mi se najvise dokazao na polju ucvrscivanja noktica. Kao bazni lak najvise volim koristiti Revelique Base & Top Coat* koji je po mom misljenju najbolji drogerijski proizvod ove vrste. Lijepo pripremi nokatnu plocu za lak po zelji ali je izvrstan i kao nadlak sa kojim nema baloncica na povrsini. Jednom sam vam spomenula kako imam blagi oblik psorijaze te da osobe sa ovim problemom cesto imaju neravnu povrsinu nokta. Mnogi lakovi upravo naglasavaju te neravnine ali primijetila sam da Revelique Ridge Filler* dosta pomaze po tom pitanju. Nije cudotvorac ali u kombinaciji sa lakom koji nije isuvise sjajan, daje dosta zadovoljavajuce rezultate.




Nail polish removers are something I love to change up often and I'm usually not loyal to any brand or specific one. However, I have found that the Farmasi nail polish removers are very good and I love the one with Argan oil. I also love Flormar nail polish removers and I'm currently using the one with omega oil*. Excellent value for money and it doesn't reek - at all. I also found the Bourjois Magic Nail Polish remover to be excellent. The basic blue Ebelin nail polish remover is also very, very good stuff. As for shaping my nails, I use several buffers and files. Flormar All About Nails* is a good multi-sided one to buff those nails and give them some shine. My Titania file is also decent and affordable as is their cuticle stick for pushing the skin back (but gently). I also have a no name cuticle stick which does the job and an Ovnak glass file. I think that it's decent but I'm going to invest into a better glass nail file next time. So let me know what you think about my hand and nail care regime in the comments below. Do we share some bits, have I forgotten something, do you recommend a certain product? I'd love to hear.

Skidace laka za nokte cesto mijenjam i nisam vjerna nekom odredjenom brendu. Oni koji su mi se pokazali solidnim a ne kostaju previse su Farmasi skidaci laka za nokte. Trenutno koristim njihov skidac sa arganovim uljem. Dobri su i Flormar skidaci laka za nokte a meni najdrazi je onaj sa omega uljem*. Jako je isplativa kupovina i skoro pa se ne osjeti na onaj klasicni miris koji povezujemo sa acetonom. I Bourjois Magic skidac laka za nokte mi je interesantan. Klasicni plavi Ebelin skidac je mozda najbolji od onoga sto dm nudi. Po pitanju oblikovanja noktiju, koristim se razlicitim turpijama. Flormar All About Nails* je odlicna visestrana bucmasta turpija kojom se lako postizu sjajni i zagladjeni nokti. Od onih cvrscih turpija godinama koristim Titania turpije kao i njihov potiskivac kozice i zanoktica (ciniti pazljivo). Posjedujem i jedan no name stapic za potiskivanje kozica koji me takodjer dobro sluzi te Ovnak Vitez staklenu turpiju. Mislim da je pristojna no iduci cu put uloziti malo vise u neku kvalitetniju. U komentarima mi javite sta mislite o mojoj njezi. Da li dijelimo neke stvarcice, da li sam nesto izostavila, da li mi vi zelite nesto preporuciti? Voljela bih cuti vase prijedloge.
