Afrodita Cosmetics Fast Tanning Jam - First Impressions

5/05/2015



Tanning. We go way back but never have I needed a help in this area as much as I currently do. I can safely say that I've never been paler in my entire life - I think that's not necessarily a bad thing (I've actually kept my skin in a good condition by keeping it from the sun) but I do miss bronzed skin tremendously. Tanning jams are one of my favorite ways to catch some color and my fave in the past has been the Collistar tanning jam which has set the bar way up high thanks to its lovely texture and fast results - that makes testing of this new tanning jam even more interesting. Weather has been fickle and paired with my shifts at work, I'm not sure I'll promptly serve concrete results of this product so I've decided to share my first impressions and basic product info now - and bronzey skin later. Afrodita Cosmetics 100% Bronze Skin Fast Tanning Jam is the newest release by the awesome brand - I'm very much in love with their skincare and I'm crossing my fingers I'll also be enamoured by their bronze-inducing miracle. Right now, we're going through some basic info concerning the product. Have in mind that this tanning jam isn't a self-tanner, doesn't contain SPF (no UV protection) and is there to help you develop a faster and deeper attractive tan with a lovely sheen. It isn't suitable for children, sensitive or very fair skin. If you take a look at the ingredients you'll notice it contains cacao seed butter, beeswax, liquid paraffin, olive oil, shea butter, wallnut, rosemary leaf extract, rapeseed oil, propylparaben, sunflower oil, beta-carotene, carrot root extract, soybean oil etc.

Suncanje. Moze se reci da smo stari prijatelji ali na polju osuncane koze, moram priznati da mi nikada ranije nije bila potrebnija pomoc kao sto je sada. Sa sigurnoscu mogu reci da nikada nisam bila svjetlije puti, sto samo po sebi uopste nije losa stvar (barem znam da sam kozu lijepo ocuvala tokom zadnjih par godina sto se nisam mnogo izlagala suncu) ali - ne mogu poreci da mi nedostaje osuncan ten. Popularne marmelade/pekmezi za ubrzano tamnjenje su mi od ranije omiljeni nacin i svojevrsna kratica do bronzanog tena. Moj dugogodisnji favorit iz ove kategorije je Collistar marmelada koja je svojom fantasticnom formulacijom i brzim rezultatima zaista postavila visoke standarde - utoliko ce testiranje narednog proizvoda biti zanimljivije.  Posto je vrijeme dosta varljivo a moje radno vrijeme jos nepredvidivljivije, odlucila sam da sa vama sada podijelim svoje prve impresije i osnovne podatke o proizvodu - a osuncanu kozu kasnije. Kozmetika Afrodita 100% Bronze Skin Marmelada za ubrzano tamnjenje je uzbudljiv novitet koji nam dolazi od ovog fantasticnog brenda - jako me dojmila Kozmetika Afrodita preparativa i zaista se nadam da ce mi marmelada pruziti jednako impresivne rezultate. Sada cemo spomenuti neke osnovne podatke glede samog proizvoda. Prije svega, imajte na umu da ovo nije proizvod za samotamnjenje, ne sadrzi UV zastitu i osnovni cilj marmelade jeste da pomogne pri brzem postizanju bogato osuncanog tena uz lijep sjaj koze. Ukoliko pogledate listu sastojaka uvidjeti cete da se medju njima nalaze kakao butter, pcelinji vosak, parafinsko ulje, maslinovo ulje, karite butter, orah, ekstrakt lista ruzmarina, ulje repice, propilparaben, suncokretovo ulje, beta-karoten, ekstrakt korijena mrkve, ulje soje itd.



Packaging looks attractive with the bronze & orange accents and is definitely sturdy - it's not luxurious as it's made out of plastic but this is one of the rare occasions I'm glad that the packaging isn't heavy or made out of glass. From my experience, tanning products can get slippery and I personally don't want to risk dropping something heavy or shatter-prone. I appreciate that there's a protective white plastic cap underneath the lid - it's hygienic and a useful detail. You get 200ml of product for approx $9 which is such a bargain! Seriously, I'm still impressed by the affordable price - have in mind that you get 150ml of the Collistar tanning jam for approx $30 - huge price/quantity difference, no? Afrodita Cosmetics Fast Tanning Jam looks and smells delicious. We (and by 'we' I'm referring to my husband and I) had a minor mishap - while I was away, he was so tempted by the jam that he stuck his sweet little fingers in it and used it, thinking I already photographed it. You can only imagine how shocked I was - I think beauty bloggers of the world sympathise. But he stepped up and with the help of steam has made the surface of jam smooth and evened out once again - he got standing ovations thanks to clever thinking and creative solutions to this problem! However, the untouched jam didn't have all the swirls and bubbles so have this in mind - you'll get an even better looking product. It does make me think of honey and honey combs and it even smells like honey, which is addictive. Texture is gel/cream based and even though it feels non-sticky it definitely provides a serious whack of nourishment to the skin. I'm looking forward to further tests and I'm crossing fingers it'll give me a nice little tan soon - wish me luck!

Pakovanje je atraktivno i lijepo mu stoje bronzano/narandzasti detalji te je definitivno cvrsto napravljeno - nije luksuzno posto je izradjeno od plastike ali ovo je jedna od rijetkih prilika kada mi je drago sto pakovanje proizvoda nije od teskog materijala ili stakla. Iz iskustva mogu reci da proizvodi za postizanje osuncanog tena mogu biti skliski (pogotovo tokom nanosenja), tako da mi je licno draze sto ne rizikujem da mi iz ruku ispadne nesto tesko ili sklono lomljenju. Cijenim sto se ispod poklopca nalazi bijeli zastitni poklopac (takodjer od plastike) koji je prije svega higijensko rjesenje ali i koristan detalj. Dobiti cete 200ml proizvoda za preporucenu cijenu od 15,50KM. Sto se tice BiH trzista, proizvod je dostupan u CM-u, DM-u, DIDACO shopu, VIMKOPU od 20.04.2015. godine. Smatram da je cijena vise nego odlicna i jos uvijek sam ugodno iznenadjena koliko je proizvod ustvari povoljan! U poredjenje uzmite da Collistar marmelada dolazi u pakovanju od 150ml po cijeni od cca 50KM-60KM. Tu se radi o drasticnoj razlici u odnosu kolicina-cijena, zar ne? Kozmetika Afrodita Marmelada za ubrzano tamnjenje izgleda i mirise bezobrazno slasno. Mi (pod 'mi' mislim na supruga i sebe) smo imali mali incindent sa marmeladom - dok jednog dana nisam bila kod kuce, muzonja je bio u tolikom iskusenju i nestrpljiv da isproba marmeladu da je svojim slatkim prsticima iskoristio - ne znajuci da je nisam fotografisala. Ova cinjenica ce, vjerujem, izazvati suosjecanje kod svake beauty blogerice. Bila sam u soku, istina, ali se covjek zaista potrudio da ispravi gresku i uz pomoc pare je uspio da izravna povrsinu proizvoda - od mene je dobio ovacije na kreativnom rjesenju problema! Samo imajte na umu da nova, neotvorena i nekoristena marmelada nema mjehurice niti sare na povrsini (to je jedina stvar koja odaje mali incident). Ipak, marmelada me svojim izgledom asocira na med i kosnicu a cak i mirise poput meda, sto je u mojim ocima veliki plus. Tekstura je gelasta ali i kremasta istovremeno. Iako nije ljepljiva, bez sumnje je da intenzivno hrani kozu. Jako se radujem buducem testiranju i istinski se nadam da cu vam se uskoro moci pohvaliti tropskim tenom - pozelite mi srecu!
