Beauty Quickie: Current In-Shower Favorite!

5/31/2015




Shower gels are one of the most basic yet probably most used and needed bath & body care products. Apart from the L'Occitane Almond Shower body oil, which is by far my favorite of the category, I rarely get wowed by shower gels, shower creams etc. Most of them work fine and I just switch them up depending on my mood and/or color/texture/smell preference. Unless I have dry, itchy, flaky skin problems (which hasn't occurred for a long time, hurrah!), I can get away with any shower product. I was very fond of thick and gorgeously gourmet scented shower creams, foams and oils (most from L'Occitane and Balea) but as warmer weather started to show its face, I've noticed that I was looking for something refreshing, zingy and citrusy. This particular shower gel is by all means the basic type but, for some reason, I fell deeply in love with it! First I got the tube you see is filled with bubbles. I am guessing it is an older version - older packaging of this shower gel. I've gotten through it in an instant! It felt so good, deeply cleansing and refreshing - a joy to use after my workout sessions. A friend ordered a new bottle for me - that one was also used up very quickly because I tend to shower a lot and physical activity really makes you to use the old shower even more. I was pleasantly surprised when I received yet another bottle of the Avon Senses Awakening Citrus Zing Shower Gel (250ml). I'm sure I'll get through that one soon as well and it's quite interesting that I've got this exclusive relationship going on with this simple ons but I really, really like it. Now be warned about the scent - I'm not sure - I know some of you will be thinking that they're holding a dishwashing detergent. If you usually have an aversion towards basic lemony, citrusy scents - walk away. You won't like this one because it's not complex, it's not sumptuous or juicy. To me it smells like a lime & lemon combo - very fresh, almost bitter. It's exactly what I need after a yoga session or a visit to the gym or the classic run - this shower gel makes me feel clean and it definitely thoroughly cleanses the skin. It's perfect if you're prone to impurities of the skin on your body (e.g. your shoulders, back, cleavage etc.) but it doesn't feel drying. It's not for dry skin though, in that case find a more nourishing option. I like this one, despite its humble nature - it's cheap as well so I guess I'll be stocking up on the 500ml next! Do you have an Avon Senses favorite? 

Gelovi za tusiranje su jedni od najmanje zanimljivih ali vjerovatno jedni od najvise koristenih proizvoda za njegu tijela. Osim L'Occitane Badem Ulja za tusiranje, koje je nadaleko moj favorit iz ove kategorije, rijetko me kada neka tusiralica bas obori sa nogu. Mislim da sve one rade svoj posao sasvim solidno i obicno ih mijenjam ovisno od raspolozenja i/ili boje/mirisa/teksture u skladu sa svojim raspolozenjem. Osim ako nemam problema sa suhom, zategnutom kozom (sto se nije desilo vec jako dugo vremena, hura!), mogu koristiti bilo koju tusiralicu. Bila sam prilicno zadovoljna gustim kremastim tusiralicama, pjenama i uljima za tusiranje ponajvise od L'Occitanea ili Balee jer su me naprosto osvojili bogatom formulacijom i toplim, gurmanskim mirisima. No kako je toplije vrijeme stiglo, pocela sam gravitirati ka osvjezavajucim, citrusnim tusiralicama. Konkretno gel o kojem ce biti rijeci je apsolutno prejednostavan no iz nekog razloga sam mu postala vjerna. Prvi put sam dobila tubu koju vidite da je ispunjena baloncicima i pjenom. Pretpostavljam da je rijec o starijoj verziji tj. pakovanju i nju sam potrosila u rekordnom roku. Bas mi je mnogo odgovarao taj osjecaj svjezine - apsolutni je uzitak za koristiti nakon treninga! Potom mi je prijateljica narucila novu bocu - i nju sam istrosila jako brzo posto se inace cesto tusiram + fizicka aktivnost je to naknadno ucinila ucestalim. Iznova sam se obradovala kada sam dobila novo pakovanje Avon Senses Awakening Citrus Zing gela za tusiranje (250ml kosta 4,50KM). Vjerovatno cu i ovoj boci dotaci uskoro dno i prilicno sam iznenadjena da je nesto toliko jednostavno zaokupilo moju paznju toliko dugo vremena. Odmah cu vas upozoriti glede mirisa. Ne da mislim, vec znam da ce neke od vas pomisliti kako u rukama drze najobicniji deterdzent za pranje sudja - samo se okrenite i nemojte vise obracati paznju u tom slucaju. Ako vas obicno jednostavni citrusni mirisi podsjecaju na hemijska sredstva, ova tusiralica vam se nece dopasti - uopste nije kompleksna, nije socni citrus. Meni mirise na kombinaciju limuna i limete - izuzetno svjeze, skoro pa gorko. Upravo je ono sto mi treba i odgovara nakon joge, teretane ili klasicnog trcanja. Nakon koristenja se osjecam cisto i uopsteno koza zaista bude temeljito ociscena. Ova je tusiralica odlicna ako inace imate problema sa necistom kozom tijela (npr. na ramenima, ledjima, dekolteu itd.) no ne isusuje je. Doduse, uopste je ne bih preporucila suhoj kozi - u tom slucaju potrazite hranljiviji proizvod. Meni se ovaj dopao - takodjer ne kosta mnogo a vidjela sam da sada boca od 500ml kosta isto kao i bocica od 250ml (4,50KM). Pocastiti cu se definitivno! Koji je vas Avon Senses favorit?
