Best Non-Sticky City Sunscreen

6/07/2015



It's Sunday, it's too hot (but I won't complain as I couldn't wait for temperatures to rise) and all I want to do is chill at home, have a nice, relaxing read and possibly a nap. However, I have an incredible urge to write all about this body lotion/cream hybrid. I've made it a well-known fact that L'Occitane body lotions and potions (especially body oils!) are my top, top body care products. I think they're great and worth the splurge. But this is also worth every bit of attention and investing your pennies into. You know how sticky skin can get when it's hot outside and I can sometimes skip hydration altogether (bad, I know) due to the fact that I cannot stand anything on my skin - especially in places where skin overlaps and touches (backs of knees, inner elbows and so on). However, this is amazing and completely non-oily plus it has sun protection. Genius! Avon Solutions DD Body Cream SPF15 (150ml costs 16€) - simply drop the 'DD' part of the story, completely ignore the alphabet thing. I cannot remember when was the last time I've recommended an Avon body cream or lotion as most are solid but they rarely stand out or speak out to me, you know? This one does!

Nedelja je, previse je vruce (ali ne smijem se zaliti posto sam stvarno sa radoscu iscekivala ljeto) i sve sto zelim da radim jeste da se izlezavam u hladu, da citam neku knjigu lagane tematike i najvjerovatnije da sve zaokruzim dobro dremkom. Ipak imam i nevjerovatno veliku zelju da vam napisem koju rijec o ovom hibridu klasicnog losiona i kreme za suncanje. Pobrinula sam se da je svima jasno kako su mi L'Occitane mazalice za tijelo omiljene (pogotovo njihova ulja!). Mislim da su vrhunski proizvodi koji su vrijedni vremena i novca te ne zalim niti za jednom kupovinom. Ali ovo je takodjer vrijedna investicija u njegu tijela - stovise, fantasticna je investicija! Znate kako nam koza postane ljepljiva uslijed visokih temperatura, znojimo se i svaki dodir sa kozom postaje neprijatan - narocito na mjestima gdje se koza preklapa (zadnja strana koljena, unutarnji dio laktova itd.). I upravo zbog tog neprijatnog osjecaja pokusavam izbjeci sve sto bi dodatno pogorsalo stvari a samim time nerijetko preskacem hidrataciju tijela tokom ljetnih mjeseci (sto je grozno, priznajem). Ali krema o kojoj vam pisem je potpuno nemasna a cak pruza i zastitu od suncevih zraka. Genijalno! Kada govorimo o Avon Solutions DD kremi za tijelo sa SPF15 (150ml kosta 31KM) - slobodno izostavite onaj 'DD' dio. Skroz  ignorisite aluziju na BB, CC i sve ostale alfabet kreme. Ne mogu se sjetiti kada sam posljednji put preporucila Avon mazalicu za tijelo - ne zato sto su lose, naprotiv, sve su prilicno solidne. Ali rijetko koja mi se narocito istice a ova je ucinila upravo to!



It promises to give the skin an entire body treatment as it contains caffeine, babassu oil (extracted from babassu pams) and Vitamin E. Its forte is hydration which gives back as it makes skin supple and it regains elasticity. This is all fine and yes, it does all these things - most decent body creams will provide solid hydration and when skin is properly hydrated it looks and feels better. But I don't see this as a tightening treatment or a regular body lotion. For me, this is the definition of a summer-appropriate body cream which has the most pleasant, non-oily texture, a scent to die for and it offers an SPF15 which won't cut it at the beach - but will be perfect for the city. It's like a sunscreen/body cream lotion but without the heaviness or stickiness most dedicated sunscreens have. It's of a creamy/ivory coloring, medium to watery texture which feels refreshing and sinks into the skin in seconds. It also has a beautiful scent - very reminiscent of the beach, sand and the sea. I use it everyday now, after shower or in the morning before I go out - it's super easy to use as the skin drinks it up and it doesn't leave any residue (you can get dressed right away). And it makes skin heavenly soft! I know my skin's taken care of and protected while I stroll around, go to work or run errands - and it looks beautiful, I must say. It gives a very pretty sheen to the skin and I've noticed it aids tanning a bit. It's the perfect all-rounder which has currently  overthrown my L'Occitane body stuff - and that happens rarely my friend! Total, complete recommendation from my part. Summer in a tube!

Obecava da podmiri sve potrebe koze zahvaljujuci kompleksu sa kafeinom, babassu uljem (dobijenim od babassu palmi) i vitaminom E. Glavni adut ove mazalice je hidratacija koja sa sobom nosi visestruke dobiti - cini kozu meksom, gladjom i elasticnijom. Ove tvrdnje su sasvim na mjestu posto cini sve to - ali vecina pristojnih hidratantnih krema radi istu stvar ako vec pruzaju solidnu njegu i hidrataciju kozi, ne? Ocigledno je da ce njegovana koza izgledati ljepse a biti ce i podatnija na dodir. Ali ja uopste ovu kremu ne dozivljavam kao neki tretman za ucvrscivanje koze niti kao klasicni losion. Za mene, ovo je definicija kreme koja je prilagodjena svakodnevnim potrebama koze tokom ljeta. Prije svega, ima tako jednu prijatnu i nemasnu teksturu, mirise fantasticno i pruza SPF15 sto nije dovoljno za plazu ni ljetovanje - ali je sasvim dovoljno za kretanje po gradskoj vrevi. Ovo bi bio losion za suncanje koji odlicno hidratizira kozu i nema onog teskog, masnog osjecaja koji inace prati kreme za suncanje. Boje je bjelokosti, srednje guste do vodenaste formulacije koja osvjezava kozu po nanosenju i trenutacno se upija. Stvarno je ugodnog mirisa koji me asocira na plazu, more i sunce. Losion koristim sada svaki dan - poslije tusiranja ali i odmah ujutro prije nego se zaputim na kaficu, da obavim neke obaveze, na posao ili u opustenu setnju. Nevjerovano je lagana za koristenje posto se odmah upija i mozete odmah obuci odjecu - nema nikakvog sloja na kozi koja kao da 'popije' ovu kremu. I moram spomenuti da cini kozu super mekanom te pomaze kod dobijanja njezno broncanog tena! U zadnje vrijeme mi koza tijela jako lijepo izgleda jer joj ova krema pridaje lijep sjaj a k tome znam i da je zasticena od suncevih zraka kada god vrijeme provodim izvan kuce. Jako je prakticna i trenutacno na polici stoji ispred svih L'Occitane mazalica - sto je rijetkost! Ljeto u tubici ima moju srdacnu preporuku!
