Review: Happy bronze

vineri, august 10, 2012

Ma mir ca nu ati reusit sa ghiciti schimbarea majora care s-a petrecut in ultima saptamana. :( Totusi apreciez ca v-a placut cum m-am "tuns" si "vopsit", chiar daca e culoarea mea naturala si nu am mai bagat foarfeca-n par de un trilion de ani. xD

I am amazed that you could not guess the major change that happened last week. :( But I appreciate that you liked how I "cut" and "colored" my hair, even if that's my natural color and I have not used the scissors for quite some time.

Dar ca sa facem un pic de lumina, ia priviti poza de acum 2 saptamani si una mai recenta, batrana cam de 1 sap. 

To bring light into this discussion, just take a look at this picture from 2 weeks ago and a more recent one, from 1 week ago.

Sunt bronzataaa!!! 

I am tanned!

Cine ma cunoaste de ceva timp stie cat de alba pot sa fiu. Hell, aproape ca pot fi folosita pe post de obiect fosforescent! Nici cele mai deschise fonduri de ten nu mi se potrivesc si evit cu desavarsire sa ies pe strada cu altceva in afara de pantaloni sau patrafire rochii pana in pamant. Nu pentru ca mi-ar fi rusine cu reflexiile mele verzulii, ci ptr ca ma obosesc comentariile si intrebarile legate de asta.

Who knows me well can say how white I can be. Hell, I can almost be used as a fluorescent object! Even the lighter shades of foundation would not suite me and I always avoided wearing anything else other than pants and long skirts/dresses. Not that I would am ashamed of my green reflections but I am sick and tired of the questions and comments I get.

Stiam sigur ca eu ma fac ca un rac daca stau in soare, iar multiplele plimbari prin Bucuresti sub soarele arzator imi confirmau aceast trist fapt. Insa cand am auzit ca mergem in vacanta la mare, mi-am facut temele si mi-am propus sa plec de acolo neagra. Sau cel putin nu rosie.

I knew I was going to look like a lobster if I stay in the sun too much and the many walks through Bucharest under the scorching sun confirmed this sad fact. But when I heard that we're going on holiday to the seaside, I made my homework and I planned to come home tanned. Or at least not red.

Nu am respectat intocmai orele de bronzat safe, am stat in apa cat curpinde, insa am apelat la urmatorii 2 prieteni care m-au salvat de arsuri sau roseala.

I didn't really took notice of the safe sunbathing hours, I played a lot in the water, but I had these 2 friends by my side to save me from sunburn.

In primele 2 zile am aplicat si reaplicat laptele hidratant cu spf 25 de la Ivatherm intr-o veselie. Nu am prins nici un pic de culoare, asa ca am decis sa introduc in scena si uleiul de la Elmiplant cu spf 10, concentrandu-l in special in zonele mai deschise la culoare (eram deja un pic luata pe umeri si maini de la Bucuresti). Pe fata am continuat sa ma dau cu cel Ivatherm.

In the first two days I applied and reapplied the moisturizer with SPF 25 milk from Ivatherm. My skin colour didn't change at all, so I decided it's time for the Elmiplant oil with spf 10 it focusing to enter the scene, especially on the paler areas. On the face I continued to use Ivatherm.

Rezultatul? Un bronz super misto, relativ uniform si care nu s-a cojit nici acum, cu mici exceptii. Am reusit sa ma inrosesc un picut pe cur si in jurul lui, pentru ca am uitat cu desavarsire sa ma dau acolo intr-o zi...Si s-a vazut diferenta. Acolo deja se cam duce pielea.

The result? A really nice tanned look, relatively symetric and that hasn't peeled off up until now, with some minor exceptions. I managed somehow to get a sunburn on my ass by forgetting to apply cream one day...And the difference was clear. The skin is starting to peel there.

Uleiul de la Elmiplant miroase a nuci de cocos si as face baie in el. xD Ador sa-l folosesc pe picioare deoarece ofera un glow superb fara a arata ca un mic dejun de la Mc Donalds. Faptul ca nu are parabeni si este rezistent la apa il tintuieste pe lista produselor mele preferate.

The oil from Elmiplant smells like coconuts and I would surely take a bath in it. I love to use it in my legs as it gives a beautiful glow, without looking like an oily breakfast from Mc Donalds. The fact that it is water resistant and doesn't contain any parabens has def pinned it to my fav products' lists.

Laptele hidratant de la Ivatherm l-am primit in campanie insa nu am avut placerea de a-l folosi pana acum. Miroase absolut incredibil si isi face treaba de minune. Am avut curaj sa-l folosesc pe fata si din fericire nu mi-a mai crescut inca un nas sau un tentacul. Ce nu imi place este ca orificiul este cam mare si curge cam mult, plus ca nu este rezistent la apa...Dar e un plus faptul ca este ptr piele sensibila!

The moisturizing milk from Ivatherm was given to me in a recent campaign but I did not have the chance to use it up until now. It smells incredible and does it job wonderfully. I had the courage to use it on my face and so far I did not grow another nose or some tentacle. What I don't like is that too much product comes out of the bottle and that it's not water resistant...But at least it's good for sensitive skin!

M-am dat o data si cu ulei de masline de la o prietena insa raman inca sceptica in privinta lui. Nu am incredere inca in uleiurile naturale, oricat de mult m-as fi documentat in domeniu. Pur si simplu nu ma simt in siguranta doar cu ele. Plus ca se dau foarte greu prelingea apa de pe mine si dupa 2 dusuri. xD

I tried using olive oil once but I am still really sceptical about it. I don't trust natural oils just yet, no matter how much I read about them. I just don't feel safe enough using them alone. Not to mention that they are really hard to remove...the water was running down my skin even after 2 showers. xD

Voi cu ce folositi pe arsita asta (care pare ca se duce usor usor)?

What do you use under the scorching sun?
