L'Occitane Jenipapo Protecting Body Jelly Milk SPF20

6/24/2014



I don't know if I've ever mentioned this before but I'm really fussy with my sunscreens. I rarely stray from my good old Lancaster range and that's what hubby and I've been using for years. That's why I'm quite reluctant when trying new sunscreens is in question but the new L'Occitane au Bresil launch really has intrigued us both. Apart from all the Brazil football World Cup madness, we were mostly fascinated by the different approach the brand has made. The packaging is genius, colors are very summer-y fresh and the new scents are very tropical - completely different that anything else we've used from L'Occitane. And yes, this can count as a review done by two people as hubby was a crucial member of the reviewing team (you'll see why later). In general, he loves L'Occitane very much - in fact, I think it's one of his favorite brands. Sunny weather was fickle but we've gone through daily application of this sunscreen, no matter how sunny or cloudy the weather was and this little fella really is on top of its game. L'Occitane Jenipapo Protecting Body Jelly Milk SPF20 is a wonderful surprise - come and see why!

Ne znam da li sam nekada spominjala no prilicno sam izbirljiva kada su kreme sa zastitnim faktorom u pitanju. Rijetko kada sam bila nevjerna Lancaster kremicama sa SPFom i upravo njih muz-puz i ja koristimo uzastopno vec godinama. Iz tog razloga se cesto neckam oko isprobavanja noviteta na tom polju no nova L'Occitane au Bresil kolekcija nas je oboje zaintrigirala. Na stranu referenca na sportska desavanja u Brazilu koja su svakako u zaru diskusija, nas je najvise privukao novi pristup proizvodima koji nam putem ove kolekcije dolazi od dragog brenda. Pakovanje je genijalno, boje su jako svjeze i u duhu ljeta a novi mirisi su poput tropskih slastica - nesto potpuno drugacije u odnosu na sve sto smo ranije isprobali od L'Occitane-a. I da, mozete na ovu recenziju gledati kao kreaciju dvije osobe jer muzic-puzic je bio neprocjenljiv clan komisije za recenziranje (kasnije cete vidjeti zasto). Uopsteno on jako voli L'Occitane i mislim da mu je jedan od omiljenih brendova. Ljeto je do sada bilo varljivo no mi smo se drzali svakodnevnog nanosenja ove zastitne mazalice, bez obzira koliko suncano ili oblacno bilo vrijeme taj dan. Mogu vam reci da nas je ovaj malisan dojmio. L'Occitane Jenipapo zastitni gel-mlijeko za tijelo sa SPF20 je krasno iznenadjenje a ja vas pozivam da u nastavku otkrijete zasto!


The packaging is a subject I cannot and will refuse to skip - it's blimmin' beautiful. I love the peculiar shape which is quite handy while I'm on the go. I love the creamy color of the bottle and the cutesy ornamented sticker wrapped around it. Those artists from Brazil really have done a good job as the theme of Brazil, summer and holidays is spot on. If you look at the pump, what do you expect? I was honestly convinced that it will spritz out the sunscreen but it doesn't - it basically pumps it out. I have no idea why this surprised me so much but I'm still kinda under impressions. One tip: do bring the pump close to your arm, leg or ant other part of skin you want the sunscreen to be applied. I've done the unfortunate mistake of holding it from a distance so my floor got all pampered instead of yours truly. The smell of the Jenipapo is divine. It's so fruity and happy and reminds me of a handful of fruit as I've never been acquainted with the jenipapo plant before. It makes me think mango, watermelon, peach, melon - it's so delish! 

Pakovanje je nesto na sto zelim napraviti mali osvrt jer - meni je odlicno. Dopada mi se pomalo neobican oblik bocice koji se pokazao prilicno zgodnim kada bih posegnula za njom u torbi (nije iskliznula niti jednom iz ruke). Dopada mi se kremasta boja pakovanja i simpaticne aplikacije na naljepnici koja je omotana oko bocice. Mislim da su umjetnici iz Brazila odlicno docarali svojim dizajnom kako Brazil tako i ljeto. Ukoliko pogledate pumpicu, sta ocekujete? Ja sam zaista bila uvjerena kako ce gel-mlijeko biti rasprsen ali ustvari - rijec je o klasicnoj pumpici, bez onoj 'spric' dijela koji sam ocekivala. Ne znam zbog cega me ta cinjenica toliko iznenadila no jedan mali savjet: priblizite pumpicu ruci, nozi ili koji god dio tijela zelite namazati. Ja sam napravila pocetnicku gresku i udaljila pumpicu od ruke te je na kraju pod uzivao u mazalici umjesto mene. Miris Jenipapo linije mi se bas dopao. Tako je socan i vocan te me podsjeca na dosta razlicitog voca od manga, lubenice, breskve pa do dinje. Vjerovatno iz razloga sto nikada ranije nisam iskusila brazilsku jenipapo vocku.


The texture is very unique as well. It's called a 'protecting body jelly milk' and I'd say that the description is spot on. It's incredibly light, feels oil-free but does have that initial soothing 'slip' that makes you want slather it all over. It does moisturize and refresh the skin upon application. Designed for women and men in Brazil, living in hot and humid climates - no wonder how the texture is so comfortable. It actually feels like a pampering, luxe moisturizing treat for the body instead of anything I'd expect a sunscreen to be. It isn't sticky at all - not even when I do perspire. It pumps out white but goes on clear. It's advised that you liberally apply it 15 minuted before sun-exposure and it's best if you re-apply it every 2 hours to get optimum sun protection. The two of us have done just that over the course of a wee bit more than last 20 days. I've carried it in my bag so that reapplying is possible. I've got a nice, even and golden tan on my arms and decolletage while hubby got it also on his legs. The ultimate test was the following and this is where hubby jumps in. He likes to take a stroll around 5 in the afternoon and he sunbathes at that time. Apart from the rest of his body, I've been heavily applying the Jenipapo Jelly Milk on a mole he has on his back. The third or fourth time we came back from a stroll together I've noticed a white ring of protection. Jenipapo sunscreen is awesome and has already garnered the flattering title 'SPF of the summer'!

Tekstura je takodjer dosta unikatna. Nazvana je 'zastitnim gel/zele-mlijekom za tijelo' i moram se sloziti sa opisom. Nevjerovatno je lagana, nemasna no pruza onu pozeljnu kremastu konzistenciju koja pomaze distribuciju proizvoda preko koze. Lijepo hidratizira i osvjezi kozu odmah po nanosenju. Dizajnirana za stanovnistvo Brazila kojem su svakodnevnica visoka vlaga i temperature - nije neobicno zasto se ciljalo na ugodnu, neopterecujucu teksturu. Meni ovaj zastitni gel-mlijeko cak vise slici nekom ugadjajucem hidratantnom tretmanu nego klasicnoj kremi za suncanje. Uopste nije ljepljiv, pa cak ni kada osjetite da je perspiracija zapocela. Bijele je boje koja masiranjem u kozu postane transparentna. Preporucuje se da se nanosi 15 minuta prije izlaganja suncu a preporuceno je i da se obnavlja svaka 2h kako bi se osigurala optimalna zastita od sunca. Muz-puz i ja smo upravo toga se i pridrzavali tokom nesto vise od posljednjih 20 dana. Nosila sam ovu mazalicu u torbi kako bi mogli da obnovimo zastitu tokom dana. Za to vrijeme dok sam bila potpuno zasticena od sunca, dobila sam njezan ten zlatne boje po rukama i dekolteu dok je muz blago potamnio i po nogicama (stalno smo bili van kuce, na suncu). No, ultimativni test je bilo slijedece i tu muzic uskace sa svojim iskustvom. On ima obicaj da oko pet sati poslijepodne proseta Bentbasom i samo se tada sunca. Osim klasicne zastite, ja sam mu posebnu paznju obratila na mladez koji ima na ledjima. Tek nakon trece ili cetvrte zajednicke setnje sam primjetila da je oko mladeza ostao bijeli krug. Jenipapo je pruzio izvrsnu zastitu te je vec priskrbio titulu 'ultimativne zastitne kremice ovog ljeta'. Mazalicu koja dolazi u pakovanju od 150ml mozete kupiti po cijeni od 49KM.
