Skincode Essentials Micellar Water & Moisture Mask

11/29/2013


Skincode Essentials Micellar Water All-In-One Cleanser* was pretty interesting to test because I got specific instructions on how to use it. I should have cleansed my face as I usually do and then follow with a swipe of this micellar water on my cotton pad. So, it really should have worked as a toner - to remove those last, tiny traces of make-up and dirt. I actually loved using it that way and it was only until recently when I changed the way I use it. Even though I was satisfied with it being a toner-like micellar water, I though how that "all-in-one cleanser" bit surely isn't there for no reason. So I dared to use it as a regular micellar water - the same way I use my Bioderma Sensibio H2O. Results? Stunning! It performs exactly like Bioderma, it is even a bit bitter when I lick my lips after I've cleansed lipstick from them with this micellar water. It's actually quite powerful stuff and it removes make-up in a jiffy. It even gets mascara and eye liner a wee bit better than Bioderma which is, trust me, a huge statement to make.

Skincode Essentials Micelarna voda All-In-One Cistac* je bio dosta interesantan za testirati posto sam dobila specificno uputstvo za koristenje. Nakon uobicajenog ciscenja lica i eventualnog uklanjanja sminke, na blaznicu se nanese mala kolicina ove micelarne vode i predjem njom preko cistog i suhog lica. Na neki nacin je poput tonera jer uklanja i najmanje cestice sminke i prljavstine sa koze. Takav nacin koristenja mi je prijao i primjenjivala sam ga dugo vremena no odjedanput sam odlucila da je koristim kako i ostale micelarne. Ne samo kao tonik. Mene je ponajvise zaintrigirala tvrdnja da je "sve-u-jednom" tip cistaca. Zasto to ne iskoristiti? Nakon sto sam je koristila za ciscenje sminke sa lica, kao sto to cinim i sa svojom Biodermom Sensibio H2O, rezultati su bili fantasticni! Jednako je ucinkovita kao Bioderma, cak je i gorka nakon sto polizem usne kada sam sa njih uklonila ruz ovom micelarnom. Dosta je mocna i efektna te uklanja sminku bez problema. Cak uklanja i maskaru te tecni tus mozda i malo brze nego sama Bioderma. Znam, prilicno intenzivna tvrdnja no zaista je tako.


It is actually better than the rest of micellar waters I've tried out so far. I really love it and I do recommend trying it if you're not on a tight budget since it isn't the most affordable micellar offering out there. It comes with a protective seal which guarantees that no one opened it before you. It actually has a smart design, a bit apothecary and very clean indeed. The 200ml bottle should last for, perhaps, 5 months because you really need a tiny amount per cotton pad and a total of 4 cotton pads to remove a full face of make-up. It also has a very clean, non-offensive, neutral and apothecary scent and is extremely gentle towards the skin. I find it to be perfect to use around the eyes since it never stings. Never have I noticed a patch of redness nor have I had any type of reaction to it. It does leave skin a little tacky which is something I couldn't handle during summer to be quite frank. However, during winter, it's an entirely different story. Since it's so moisturizing, it actually feels good to have that moisturizing residue on. Perfect micellar water to use during winter months.

Dosta je bolja micelarna od ostalih koje sam isprobala (dok je podjednako efektna kao Bioderma) te bih je toplo preporucila ukoliko vam vas budzet to dopusta. Ako vam je Bioderma dosadila ili ste isprobali vecinu micelarnih sa trzista te ste zeljni promjene, onda definitivno trebate isprobati Skincode micelarnu koju mozete pronaci u apotekama po cijeni od 39,90KM. Dopada mi se sto na pregibu poklopca ima zastitni pecat. On garantuje da je nitko prije vas nije koristio. Dopadljivog je dizajna, dosta apotekarskog stiha i mene asocira na cistocu. Bocica od 200ml bi trebala potrajati otprilike 5 mjeseci posto je potrebna smijesno mala kolicina po blaznici i ukupno 4 blaznice kako bi ocistili citavo lice od sminke. Njeznog je, cistog i neutralnog mirisa te je odlicna za koristenje oko ociju - nikada ne pece. Nije mi izazvala nikakvo crvenilo niti bilo koju drugu reakciju koze. Ostavlja blago hidratantni sloj na kozi nakon koristenja. To bi mi moglo eventualno zasmetati tokom ljeta no dok traje zima mi jako prija taj dodatni sloj hidratacije. Mislim da je ovo idealna micelarna za koristenje tokom zimskih mjeseci.


Skincode Essentials Lifting Moisture Mask* is some seriously amazing stuff. As you may know, my skin is combination and it gets dehydrated during winter. I think that the central heating at work is its worst enemy and I do spend a lot of time at work so I get noticeable dry patches around my nose, my mouth and the worst ones are on my cheeks. Oh yes, redness included. My purifying face masks are useless when I'm experiencing these symptoms and I usually combat them by slathering a thick layer of my most nourishing face cream overnight either by applying one of my face oils in those face creams. I will make a post on my face oils later on but this humble face mask has triumphed over all those methods I mention. I have felt a little bit envious of the big 75ml tube this mask is usually packaged in. It looks so swish and I'd definitely love to flaunt my own exclusive bottle but I have found that my two smaller 25ml tubes of this mask turned out to be extra convenient.

Skincode Essentials Lifting Moisture maska za lice* je jedan ozbiljan proizvod za njegu koze. Kako vam je poznato, koza mi je mjesovita dok tokom zime ima tendenciju ka isusivanju. Mislim da je ustvari centralno grijanje na poslu dokrajci i da joj je najgori neprijatelj. Posto provodim dosta vremena na radnom mjestu, pojave mi se suhe fleke oko nosa, oko usana a najgore su one na obrazima i pri vrhu jagodica. I da, bude tu dosta crvenila. Moje prociscujuce maske su beskorisne kada mi je koza u takvom stanju. Obicno se kod suhoce posluzim debljim slojem hranljive kreme za lice ili jednim od ulja koje koristim za lice. O njima cu uskoro pisati. No ova skromna maska za lice je nadjacala djelovanjem sve sto sam prethodno koristila. Moram priznati da mi je eklskluzivna tubica od 75ml izazivala zazubice i nije da se ne bih voljela sepuriti sa njom no otkrila sam da su dvije tubice od po 25ml koje sam dobila iznimno prakticne.


Again, I defied instructions on how to use it. I do use it twice a week, on a freshly cleansed and patted dry face. You should leave it on for 10 minutes and than rinse off with lukewarm water. The only difference I make is that I don't use it during the day - I use it during night and it's always during my night shift. As I've mentioned, the central heating really sucks all the moisture out of my skin and by the morning, it looks all gray-ish, dull, dry and rough. Not a pretty sight. After I've cleansed my face, patted it dry I apply a nice layer of this mask and I actually leave it on for the rest of the night. It's a clear mask but I've discovered that it contains small white beads inside (not on the photos, sorry people). I do feel a light tightening effect while the mask is still on but nothing major. The way it works is that it completely smoothes the skin - it's quite incredible. You get noticeable results because I feel the difference under my fingertips. The skin is also very hydrated and plumped out. I don't get that dullness I usually have after my night shift and it's all thanks to this little guy. I'm afraid I might be hooked on it because it's that good.

Ponovo sam bila zlocesta i odstupila sam od instrukcija kako koristiti ovu masku. Doduse, koristim je 2x sedmicno. Potrebno je ostaviti na licu 10 minuta i isprati mlakom vodom. Ono sto sam ja promijenila jeste da je ne koristim tokom dana - koristim je tokom noci. Tacnije, koristim je dok radim nocnu smjenu. Kako sam vec spomenula, centralno grijanje isise svu vlagu iz moje koze te do jutra bude sivkasta, suha i gruba. Nakon sto se umijem te uklonim sminku, posusim kozu i nanesem bogati sloj ove maske. Providne je gelaste teksture no otkrila sam da sadrzi i bijele perlice (nisu na slikama, izvinjavam se). Masku ostavim cijelu noc da djeluje i osjetila sam jako blago zatezanje, uopste nije neprijatno. Ono sto je bitno jeste da, nakon sto je isperem mlakom vodom sa lica, koza bude znatno gladja. To je nesto sto se naprosto osjeti pod jagodicama kada prstima predjem preko koze. Nevjerovatno njeguje kozu, vrati joj vlagu te me ujutro ne docekuje sivkast i suh ten. Kozu dosta nekako ispupci, nahrani i zagladi. Mislim da sam "navucena" na ovu maskicu.  Kosta 49,90KM sto je maloprodajna cijena u apotekama i to ni u kom slucaju nije malo no ipak treba imati na umu da se radi o pakovanju od 75ml. Ako mucite muku sa isusenom kozom, ovo je proizvod vrijedan vase paznje.

  1. Zvuči super, i micelarna i maska. Naravno da tijekom zime koži treba više hidratacije, i ja volim hidratantne maske ili barem deblje slojeve kreme. I super što si pronašla svoj način na koji koristiš ove stvarčice na koji ti najbolje odgovaraju i izvučeš ono najbolje iz njih!
