Balea Magischer Winter Gift Set & Balea Golden Lips

Yup, I'm well aware that it's the 3rd of January and yup – I know that we all see a gift set. No, I'm not trying to write about a gift set post New Year's Eve so do give me a chance to say what I intended to say. It's obviously not a perfect timing to buy festive presents but if you do have a birthday coming up (stubborn Capricorn will appreciate practicality though) or if you like to make spares of beauty things – than this will float your boat. You know us women, we are kinda complex but we're smart and we like to have options. For example, I have a list of my all time favorite shower gels but, obviously, since most of them aren't affordable I cannot for the most of time buy them throughout the year. That's where a beauty stash of spare things comes handy. I have a spare shower gel, body lotion, hand cream, shampoo, hair mask, face wash etc. and I've been doing this for years now. I must say that this approach has helped me out on many occasions and has saved me a lot of cash. Look at this gift set along the same lines – the Balea Magischer Winter Gift Set is a perfect budget buy which won't leave you feeling like you're missing anything. You might even love it in the end and may even prolonge its use beyond the tight budget period.

O da, svjesna sam cinjenice da je danas treci januar i da – znam da sve mi vidimo na fotkama poklon set proizvoda. Ne, ne namjeravam pisati o poklon setu na uobicajeni nacin posto je novogodisnja noc iza nas no dopustite mi da dovrsim sto sam zamislila. Ocigledno da tajming nije idealan za kupovinu praznicnih poklona no ukoliko cete tokom mjeseca imati rodjendan u planu (tvrdoglavi no i stedljivi Jarac ce cijeniti prakticnost) ili ako volite praviti zalihe pojedinih proizvoda – ovo bi vas moglo zanimati. Znate vec kakve smo mi zene – mozda i jesmo kompleksne ali smo i pametne i volimo da imamo vise opcija. Na primjer, imam spisak meni najdrazih gelova za tusiranje ali posto dosta njih ne spada u novcaniku milu kategoriju, jednostavno nije moguce da ih tokom cijele godine mogu priustiti. Upravo tada uskace moja rezervna grupica proizvoda. Imam rezervni gel za tusiranje, rezervni losion za tijelo, rezervnu kremu za ruke, rezervni sampon, rezervnu masku za kosu, rezervni gel za umivanje itd. Ovom malom triku pribjegavam vec neko vrijeme i moram priznati da mi je spasio golu kozu u par prilika ali i ustedio dosta novca kada je to bilo potrebno. Zato zelim da gledate na ovaj set proizvoda na isti nacin – Balea Magischer Winter poklon set (8,45KM) je savrsena, novcaniku pristupacna kupovina u koju bi se cak mogle zaljubiti pa mozda koristiti i malo duze nego sto finansijske prilike zahtijevaju.

Unless you're gifting this set for someone's birthday, the cute packaging isn't in focus here (although that pink bow won't hurt). Since Balea is a drogerie markt brand, you'll be able to find this gift set only in dedicated markts throughout Europe. For approx $5 you get a 200ml of shower gel and 200ml of body lotion. Quantity-wise, this is a great deal. As for the Balea Magischer Winter Shower Gel, it's a basic one – clear, medium to light texture. It makes a light creamy emulsion rather than a thin foam and this is always a thing of preference – personally, I like my shower gels to foam up but this one comes handy for shaving my legs. It's a 2in1 kinda thing in this aspect. It smells of almonds and slightly floral but the scent doesn't linger for too long. It just makes skin feel clean, supple and surprisingly non-dried out. Balea Magischer Winter Body Lotion is also a basic type of product. It's of a white coloring, medium to light (not runny though) consistency. The scent of almonds is more prominent here and it reminds me of almond milk, almond blossoms and it's really enjoyable in a milky, creamy, gentle way with a hint of beautiful ‘juicy’ florals. The texture of this lotion is easily distributed and it's more hydrating than nourishing, sinks relatively fast and isn't sticky. It also makes my skin fragrant for a couple of hours – you be the judge if that's a positive or a negative. Whether you buy this gift set for yourself and your stash or to treat someone – it's sort of a safe bet. It's affordable, it smells heavenly, doesn't aggravate the skin and is gentle. Finally, we have the Balea Golden Lips Lip Balm. I guess that for approx $1 it isn't bad but I'm not exactly fond of its synthetic scent. It's of a pinky color and shot through with gold glitter. I'm just glad that it isn't entirely gold but I'm also not a fan of glitter. My recommendation would be to give the Magischer Winter set a try and Golden Lips a miss – unless you wish to surprise a little sister or a niece (kids aren't as critical of glitter as grown-ups are).

Osim ako planirate pokloniti ovaj set nekome za rodjendan, pakovanje nam nece biti u fokusu (iako ruzicasta masnica ne skodi). Pronaci cete ovaj set za 8,45KM u dm-u i za tu cijenu cete dobiti 200ml gela za tusiranje i 200ml losiona za tijelo. Kolicinski, to je stvarno isplativo. Sto se tice Balea Magischer Winter gela za tusiranje ovdje se radi o jednostavnom proizvodu – proziran je, srednje do lagane teksture. Proizvodi laganu mlijecnu emulziju a ne gustu pjenu sto je uvijek stvar preferenci – licno vise volim da mi tusiralice pjene no ova kremastija varijanta je zgodna za brijanje nogica. U tom smislu je ovaj gel dosta praktican, nesto poput 2 u 1 proizvoda. Mirise na bademe i blago cvijetno no taj miris mi se ne zadrzava dugo na kozi nakon koristenja. Jednostavno cini kozu cistom, mekom i iznenadjujuce – ne isusuje je. Balea Magischer Winter losion za tijelo je takodjer jednostavan proizvod. Bijele je boje, srednje do rijedje (no ne i vodenaste) teksture. Miris badema je u njemu izrazajniji i podsjeca me na miris bademovog mlijeka, bademovog cvijeta i zaista je prijatan, kremast, mlijecan uz njezni dasak cvijetnih nota. Lijepo je maziv, relativno se brzo upija i nije ljepljiv na kozi. Kozu cini mirisnom na samo par sati no vama cu ovisno o tome kakve losione volite ostaviti da odlucite da li je ovo dobra ili losa stvar. Bez obzira da li cete nabaviti ovaj set za njegu tijela sebi zarad svojih rezervi ili cete nekoga obradovati njim u vidu poklona – necete pogrijesiti. Ne kosta mnogo, pristupacan je, proizvodi su njezni i neiritirajuci te mirisu krasno. Za kraj, imamo Balea Golden Lips balzam za usne. Pretpostavljam da kosta cca 2KM i recimo da sa obzirom na cijenu nije los. Jednostavno moram reci da mi se nije dopao pomalo sinteticki miris (da li sam gruba ako kazem da me asocira na plastiku?). Ruzicaste je boje i prozet je zlatnim glitterom. Moram reci da mi je drago sto nije konkretno zlatne boje no ni glitter mi nije drag. Ostavlja proziran trag na usnama i zlatne sljokice. Moja preporuka bi bila da pokusate sa Magischer Winter setom ali da propustite Golden Lips balzam za usne – jedino ako nemate malu sestricu ili necakinju (jer djeca nisu tako veliki kriticari glittera poput odraslih).
