Skincare Shopping for Autumn

8/21/2014

As summer is whizzing by, I am really thinking about revamping my skincare stash. A current skincare routine post will be up and I've envisioned it as a recap of everything I've used these past three or so months. Many products are being used up, some of them will be repurchased and others will be replaced. I've gotten in a rut and in a good way - I found products that suit my skin and I simply kept them on repeat. However, skin does start to change after a while, lack of sleep got it shifting its priorities and I'm counting on the shift of seasons to have an impact as well. After much research, keeping my skin type and history in mind, I've opted for some new picks and one old which I don't intend on chaging anytime soon. Dr.Hauschka is a brand that intrigued me approx 3-4 years ago. This is a brand with specific approach to skicare, a type of approach which at first glance seems too complicated and that first impression does tend to make some people avoid their products. I also had a sense that you cannot buy just one Dr.Hauschka skincare because you'd need for more to accompany it. And there's the case of relatively high pricing + some people's skin doesn't react well to some natural ingredients (e.g.essential oils). Since then, I've given this brand a go by purchasing samples they sell in their stores. It all began with the Dr.Hauschka Cleansing Cream sample. I have been using the 10ml mini tube for more than a month and let that be a reference of how economic this product is. I'll write more in detail about it in a separate review because I've purchased the full size 50ml tube. I've purchased full size Dr.Hauschka Revitalizing Day Cream which may be the first cream besides LRP Effaclar Duo+ which I love using on an everyday basis. Review is also pending. I have purchased several samples of Dr.Hauschka Cleansing Milk and Dr.Hauschka Facial Toner to test prior purchase (if it's going to happen at all). I think I'll purchase them both in full size and for now I'm especially fond of the facial toner - it will be perfect come autumn and winter. I am also debating if you need the cleansing cream and the cleansing milk at the same time? Probably not but we shall see. I've also purchased (finally!) my beloved L'Occitane Iris & Angelica Sublime Essence serum - a purchase which set a smile on my face. This is the one. The best facial serum I've ever tried. I'll elaborate why this is my claim and if you have combo, blemish prone or oily skin - keep your eyes on a lookout of its review here at MB. Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel is a splurge I don't regret. Praised by anyone and everyone, this gel/balm/oil hybrid is everything I expect a night time cleanser to be. Well, we'll see how it acts on my skin but expectations are very high. I've repurchased the Alpha-H Micro Cleanse (in a duo pack even!) and I think it will replace Liquid Gold for now. It's the perfect, perfect exfoliator which hubby uses religiously along with me. I've reviewed it here and I strongly recommend it, regardless of your skin type. I'm not the biggest fan of Vichy as a brand because their old Normaderm range burned my skin during my acne phase but they've revamped it. I adore their Anti-Imperfection care which I'll also repurchase so I've decided to give Vichy a second chance. This is a rough estimate of products that will go into my autumn skincare stash. I may leave some I'm testing out, perhaps I'll throw something new in but I'll update you on all the deets when the last piece of puzzle fits. Until then, you can expect a revision of my current skincare routine very soon.

Kako nam ljeto opasno brzo prolazi (a i nije bilo neko ljeto ove godine, barem ne ono kakvo volimo), dosta sam razmisljala o njezi koze i tome kako je prilaoditi uskoroj smjeni godisnjih doba. Post o trenutacnoj nezi koze koju koristim ce uskoro biti na blogu i osmisljen je kao pogled unazad – pregled rutine tokom posljednja tri mjeseca. Mnoge proizvode koji su u rotaciji cu uskoro da istrosim, neke od njih cu ponovo nabaviti dok cu druge zamijeniti novitetima. Shvatila sam da sam upala u rutinu, no ne na los nacin. Jednostavno sam pronasla proizvode koji mi odgovaraju i njih sam se pridrzavala. Ipak, nakon nekog vermena se pojedinih koza „zasitila“, nedostatak sna je takodjer ucinio da preispitam prioritete po pitanju njege a treba imati u vidu skoru smjenu godisnjih doba. Nakon dosta istrazivanja, imajuci svoj tip koze i historijat u vidu, odlucila sam se koje cu to novitete uvesti u svakodnevnu rutinu. Dr.Hauschka je brend koji me zaintrigirao prije otprilike 3-4 godine. Ovo je brend koji ima specifican pristup njezi koze i taj specificni pristup koji na prvi dojam djeluje isuvise komplikovano umije biti odbojan nekim ljudima. Licno sam bila dugo vremena pod dojmom da naprosto nije efektno da se kupi samo jedan Dr.Hauschka proizvod za njegu jer Boze moj, uz njega ide jos barem 5 razlicitih stvari. Takodjer je tesko izbjeci cinjenicu da im proizvodi nisu bas najpristupacnijih cijena + to sto necija koza jednostavno ne reaguje dobro na te tzv.prirodne sastojke (npr.esencijalna ulja). Ono sto je jako dobro jeste sto u prodaji imaju i mini uzorke koje mozete kupiti. Sve je pocelo sa uzorkom Dr.Hauschka kreme za ciscenje lica. Taj uzorak koji je kostao oko 4,50KM (10ml) mi traje vec vise od mjesec dana sto vam dovoljno govori o ekonomicnosti. Detaljno cu pisati recenziju ovog proizvoda posto sam ga kupila i u full size verziji (tuba od 50ml). Citavo pakovanje Dr.Hauschka Revitalizing dnevne kreme je takodjer sa mnom doslo kuci i ovo bi mogla biti prva krema nakon LRP Effaclar Dua+ koju volim koristiti na svakodnevnoj bazi. Takodjer ocekujte i njenu recenziju. Nabavila sam po par uzoraka Dr.Hauschka mlijeka za ciscenje i Dr.Hauschka tonika za lice kako bih ih testirala prije nego obavim ozbiljnijiu kupovinu (ako je uopste obavim). Cini mi se da bi oba proizvoda mogla uci u njegu koze, posebno tonik za lice koji ce biti idealan tokom hladnijih mjeseci. Za mlijeko za ciscenje jos nisam u potpunosti sigurna. Da li je potrebno koristiti ga ako vec imam i kremu za ciscenje? Vjerovatno ne ali jos cu sacekati sa zakljuccima. Napokon sam kupila voljeni, obozavani L'Occitane Iris & Angelica Sublime Essence serum! To je kupovina koja mi je izmamila osmijeh kojeg jos ne skidam sa lica. Ovo je onaj pravi. Ovo je najbolji serum za lice koji sam isprobala. Obrazloziti cu zasto tako mislim te ako vam je koza mjesovita, masna ili sklona aknicama – nemojte propustiti recenziju koja ce uskoro biti na MB blogu. Oskia Renaissance gel za ciscenje je luksuznija kupovina koju uopste ne zalim. Pohvale na njegov racun pljuste sa svih strana i ovaj hibrid gela/balzama/ulja za ciscenje koze bi trebao biti sve sto ocekujem od jednog nocnog skidaca sminke i cistaca lica. Tek trebamo vidjeti kako ce se ponasati na mojoj kozi no ocekivanja su uistinu velika. Alpha-H Micro Cleanse (u duplom pakovanju!) sam nabavila kao ponovnu kupovinu – toliko me impresionirao. Mislim da ce za neko vrijeme zamijeniti cak i Liquid Gold jer se radi o najboljem eksfolijansu za kojeg znam a i muz-puz ga redovito koristi na svojoj kozi. Recenzirala sam Micro Cleanse ovdje i toplo vam ga preporucujem, bez obzira koji tip koze imate. Istinu govoreci, nisam najveci ljubitelj Vichy brenda ponajvise iz razloga sto je njihova originalna Normaderm linija „sprzila“ moju kozu dok sam prolazila kroz borbu sa aknama. Od tada je linija proizvoda obnovljena i donekle izmijenjena. Takodjer sam izuzetno zadovoljna kremom Vichy Anti-Imperfection tako da sam vec malo „omeksala“ glede njih i spremna sam im pruziti drugu sansu. Ostaje da se vidi kako ce se ovaj nocni tretman pokazati na mojoj kozi. Ovo je bila gruba procjena proizvoda kojima cu oplemeniti njegu koze lica i noviteti kojima cu pripremiti se za jesen. Neke proizvode koje testiram mozda izostavim, mozda ubacim nesto potpuno neocekivano i svakako da cete biti informisane cim zaokruzim sve sto sam zamislila. Do tada, mozete ocekivati reviziju ljetne njege koze – jako brzo!
