OK BIOCOSMETICS: Best of #madeinBiH

3/29/2017



Skin care is a very important thing for me and prevention of any skin irregularities and battling the existing issues consumes the bulk of my thoughts and time I invest in beauty-related matters. For reference, my skin has transformed from acne-prone and oily to normal/dehydrated with tendency to get clogged by certain formulas (ingredients). That's the type and the issues are dark under-eye circles (courtesy of night shifts) and first wrinkles (courtesy of ageing). I have been unsatisfied with the state of my complexion six months ago, particularly with progression of wrinkles (on the forehead and around the mouth) probably in correlation with thinning skin and dehydrated skin type. 

Since then I've switched up many of my skincare bits, have tested quite a lot of different products, have stepped out of my comfort zone and explored a bit. As face creams go, I've falled in love with a Bosnian-based natural skincare brand OK BIOCOSMETICS which drogerie markt now carries. Out of thirteen creams they have, I've tried three and I do think my revelations should be shared with you.

My favorite of three is OK BIOCOSMETICS Botox Effect Anti-aging Cream (30ml) is everything I search for in a hydrating day cream. It has an extremely thirst quenching formulation which you can feel skin drinks up upon application. The texture is so smooth and light, I think it resembles a hydrating serum the most. The effect is smoothing, fine lines and wrinkles look particularly softened and the hydrating effect lasts surely for a few hours in the same intensity as right after application. It's an amazing makeup primer, foundation glides over it like a dream! It has a moderately strong fragrance of freshness called cotton flower scent and, indeed, it reminds me of clean laundry. Botox in the name suggests of skin-perfecting properties and this gives as much of that effect as a cream possibly could. I highly recommend it. Just be aware it has no SPF so use one in conjunction.

OK BIOCOSMETICS Cranberry and Manuka Night Cream (30ml) is a bit creamier, thicker and richer in texture but has a dry-touch, velvety finish. Scent and texture wise it certainly reminds me of Lush face creams. I'm trying to pinpoint what exactly has made my pores shrink - it's most probably this cream's doing. It gives visibly smaller pores overnight and makes skin look less oily. It surely is a helping hand in controlling oiliness and balancing combination skin type.

OK BIOCOSMETICS Q10 Anti-aging Cream 30+ (30ml) is something I view as last-minute prevention as this year I'm turning 30. It's quite similar to the Botox cream in texture and almost in effect as it's crazy hydrating but not as smoothing as Botox cream is. It's also heavily fragranced of vanilla/pear to my nose so it's something I can use in the morning to awaken but also at night to complete a pampering routine.

I will list full ingredients INCI lists of each cream below but important info would be that all creams have been ECOCERT certified. Based in France, ECOCERT is one of the largest organic certification organizations in the world. As for OK BIOCOSMETICS, everything is animal cruelty-free, organic and made in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Available in drogerie markt. Best of #madeinBiH

  • Njega kože lica mi je veoma bitna tako da prevencija nepravilnosti i borba sa postojećim problemima zaokupljaju većinu mojih misli vezanih za uljepšavanje. Za referencu, moja koža se transformisala od masnog tipa sklonog aknama u normalan/dehidriran tip uz sklonost ka začepljenju pora uslijed neodgovarajućih sastojaka. Problemi na kojima bih voljela poraditi su tamni okoloočni kolutovi (uslijeg rada u noćnim smjenama na poslu) i prve bore (uslijed procesa starenja). Prije cca šest mjeseci sam osjećala nezadovoljstvo stanjem vlastitog tena, pogotovo po pitanju pojave bora (oko usta i na čelu) što vjerovatno ima veze sa dehidracijom i tim što se s godinama koža tanji.
  • Zato sam odlučila napraviti promjene, isprobala sam dosta novih stvari, malo eksperimentisala i sastavila novi ritual njege. Što se krema za lice tiče, potpuno sam se zaljubila u bosanskohercegovački brend prirodne njege kože pod nazivom OK BIOCOSMETICS. Vijest da njihove proizvode možete pronaći u dm-u (drogerie markt poslovnicama) itekako je pozitivna za domaće proizvođače ali i potvrda da se radi o visokokvalitetnim proizvodima. Barem meni dm uvijek ulijeva povjerenje. U asortimanu ovaj brend ima ukupno trinaest krema a ja sam isprobala tri o kojima ću pisati u nastavku.
  • Moj favorit je ubjedljivo OK BIOCOSMETICS Botox Effect Anti-aging krema (30ml | 17,35 KM) koja u sebi ima sve što bih ja tražila od kvalitetne hidratantne kreme. Formulacijom utaži žeđ dehidriranoj koži pa bih se usudila reći da čak osjetim kako je koža "popije". Stvarno je osvježenje. Teksturom je glatka i lagana, dosta me asocira na hidratantni serum. Efekat je dosta intenzivno zaglađivanje kože, finih linija i bora čiji izgled je dosta "omekšan" a koža je hidrirana satima nakon nanošenja. Izuzetna je i kao prajmer/baza za šminku, tečni puder preko nje se savršeno nanosi. Parfimirana je po "mirisu cvijeta pamuka" koji ja tumačim kao miris svježe opranog veša/rublja uz dašak cvijetne note. Botox u nazivu ove kreme aludira na usavršavanje tena i zaista, ova krema čini sve što je moguće da koža bude što ljepša. Samo još da skrenem pažnju da ova krema ne sadrži SPF tako da je neophodno koristiti u kombinaciji sa njom.
  • OK BIOCOSMETICS Cranberry and Manuka Noćna krema (30ml | 13,95 KM) je kremastija, teksturom gušća i bogatija a ima dry-touch baršunastu završnicu. Mirisom, teksturom i osjećajem na licu me dosta podsjeća na Lush mazalice. Pore su mi se dosta suzile (pogotovo u predjelu jagodica, ispod očiju) i pokušavam odrediti šta ih je tačno suzilo od novih proizvoda koje koristim. Najviše naginjem ka tome da je ova krema odgovora za njihovo smanjenje. Doslovno odmah nakon prve upotrebe daje rezultate i pore su definitivno manje uočljive a koža se manje masti (u mom slučaju je to brada i koža oko nosnica). Veoma je učinkovita po pitanju kontroliiranja lučenja sebuma te dovodi kožu u balans (naročito primjetno kod mješovitog tipa kože).
  • OK BIOCOSMETICS Q10 Anti-aging 30+ krema (30ml | 15,50 KM) je poput prevencije za starenje kože u zadnji čas jer ove godine punim tridesetu. Veoma je slična Botox kremi po pitanju teksture koja asocira na hidratantni serum . Čak i djelovanjem na kožu sliče s tim da je Q10 intenzivno hidratantna ali ne zaglađuje kođu baš poput Botox kreme. Intenzivnog je mirisa po vaniliji i kruški tako da je pogodna za jutarnje korištenje, (pri čemu razbuđuje) ali je divna i u sklopu noćne rutine zahvaljujući luksuznom mirisu koji baš razmazi sva čula (stvorena za pampering rituale).
  • Ispod fotografija možete pročitati potpune INCI liste sastojaka svake od ove tri kreme ali ono što je bitno napomenuti jeste da OK BIOCOSMETICS kreme posjeduju ECOCERT certifikat. Bazirana u Francuskoj, ECOCERT je jedna od najvećih svjetskih organizacija koja pruža usluge certificiranja organskih proizvoda (od hrane do kozmetike). Što se tiče OK BIOCOSMETICSa, proizvodi su prirodni, sirovine iz bio uzgoja, nisu testirani na životinjama i proizvedeni su u BiH. Najbolje od #madeinBiH možete kupiti u drogerie markt prodajnim mjestima.
