Blast From The Past

There are certain products to which I'm faithful for years, others don't seem to capture my interest for long. Today one long-time fave will make a reappearance at the blog – check this out, first review of this nail polish remover was posted in December of 2012. and I have been using it long before then. You have full three years of devotion, right there, and I think that speaks volumes. Afrodita Cosmetics Oliva Oil-Base Nail Polish Remover (125ml costs approx $2,5) is still one of the best I've found. Maybe it's strange that such a random and basic products still hold dear to my heart but I'm a practical person and I appreciate good quality, practical things which work – this one certainly does. It removes any and every nail polish without a glitch (including shimmer/glitter) whilst not drying my cuticles out. Mine are really dry due to constant hand washing so this is a detail I appreciate. I also like that a little goes a long way and, usually, just one cotton pad is enough to remove nail polish from both hands – impressive!


Postoje odredjeni proizvodi kojima sam vjerna godinama, drugi me pak ne intrigiraju na duge staze. Danas vam zelim pokazati jedan od onih koje volim i koristim dugo vremena a ovo mu je takodjer drugo pojavljivanje na blogu. Pogledajte ovo, prva recenzija ovog skidaca laka za nokte je objavljena u mjesecu decembru 2012. godine a koristila sam ga dosta prije same recenzije. Znaci, govorimo o barem tri pune godine vjernosti jednom proizvodu sto, vjerujem, govori samo za sebe. Kozmetika Afrodita Oliva Uljni odstranjivac laka za nokte (125ml kosta cca 4KM) je jos uvijek jedan od najboljih skidaca koje sam pronasla. Mozda je neobicno sto jedan tako nasumican i naizgled obican proizvod drzi moju paznju tako dugo no ja sam praktican tip osobe koji cijeni kvalitetne i prakticne proizvode koji rade svoj posao kako treba – ovaj to definitivno cini. Uklanja svaki lak za nokte bez problema (ukljucujuci one sa shimmerom/glitterom) a da pri tome ne isusuje zanoktice i kozicu oko noktiju. Meni je to dosta vazno posto su mi ruke i nokti dosta suhi uslijed cestog pranja ruku. Takodjer mi je super stvar sto nemam potrebu da natopim 5-6 blaznica da bih uklonila lak sa svih noktica – potrebna je samo jedna. Impresivno!

Other product from the range which is new to me is the Afrodita Cosmetics Oliva Antibacterial Hand and Nail Cream (75ml costs approx $2,5). Enriched with olive oil (just as the nail polish remover is), olive leaf extract, glycerine, Vitamin E and beeswax it provides quite a decent whack of nourishment to hands. It seems like a basic hand cream to me – it has a white coloring, texture isn't heavy and it can be easily massaged into the skin. What I personally am not a huge fan of – you really need to use a little of this cream for it not to leave a heavy, lightly sticky film on the skin. A little literally goes a long way and when I use it like this – I like it. However, if I put too much I know I'll have the urge to wash it off. I do like that it contains essential oil of lemon which has an antibacterial effect. The scent isn't anything to write home about – it's quite basic, a mix of olive and lemon – not in your face but also not special. I prefer to use it at home because it does take care of cuticles quite well but proximity of a sink is desirable in the case of overdosing.. My favorite of the two is clearly the nail polish remover from the Oliva range although the hand cream isn't shabby but I prefer others to it. Separately or in gift set (approx $6), have you tried any of these?


Drugi proizvod iz ove linije koji je barem meni nov jeste Kozmetika Afrodita Oliva Antibakterijska krema za ruke i nokte (75ml kosta takodjer cca 4KM). Obogacena maslinovim uljem (kao sto je slucaj i sa Oliva skidacem laka za nokte), ekstraktom maslinova lista, glicerinom, vitaminom E i pcelinjim voskom pruza sasvim pristojnu njegu kozi ruku. Meni se ova krema ucinila kao prilicno standardna krema za ruke – bijele je boje, teksturom nije teska i lijepo se moze umasirati u kozu. Ono sto me nije narocito dojmilo jeste sto moram biti pazljiva oko doziranja. Ukoliko koristim malu kolicinu ove kreme, lijepo ce nahraniti kozu i nece biti teska. No ako slucajno nanesem malo vise, ostati ce blago tezak i pomalo ljepljiv sloj na povrsini. Zaista preporucujem koristenje malecke kolicine ove kremice za dobre rezultate inace bi vam visak proizvoda mogao zasmetati (pogotovo na vrucinama) – u tom slucaju odmah pozelim oprati ruke. Dopada mi se sto sadrzi etericno ulje limuna koje ima antibakterijsko djelovanje. Miris je prilicno standardan – mjesavina neutralne masline i limuna. Nije napadan no takodjer nije ni narocito pamtljiv. Ovu kremu preferiram da koristim kod kuce posto lijepo hrani nokte i znaoktice (odlican materijal za nocni tretman) no i zbog blizine umivaonika u slucaju da pretjeram sa nanosenjem. Ocigledno je da je skidac laka za nokte moj licni favorit iz Oliva kolekcije, iako ni krema nije zanemariva no nije mi se uspjela istaci pored nekih mojim favorita. U poklon setu (cca 10KM) ili zasebno, da li ste vi isprobale ove proizvode?
