ORIFLAME: Nature Secrets Shampoo - green tea & bergamot

7 comments

Finally a hair-care post after quite some time now! This post will be a collaboration with my dear Ivana from Makeup and OTHER blog (click for her post here!) because we decided it would be fun to review the same product on very different hair types (mine is thin and prone to greasing, hers is much stronger and thicker). I have to say that, unlike cosmetics, I'm quite picky when it comes to hair products. And once I find the ones that I like, I don't usually bother trying anything different or new (still using my favorite L'Oreal Ever Riche with L'Oreal Inoa for colored hair). However, when Oriflame approached me with their new green tea line I felt like I should give it a try, especially because I'm a huge tea lover and I enjoy the scent and flavor of green tea particularily. The shampoo and conditioner surprised me at how natural they both smell; I expected something much more artificial and less pleasant. After using them both for two weeks, these are my initial impressions.

Konačno post o njezi kose nakon dužeg vremena! Danas surađujem s dragom mi prijateljicom i kolegicom Ivanom s Makeup and OTHER bloga (klik za njen post ovdje!) jer smo odlučile da bi bilo vrlo zanimljivo vidjeti kako isti proizvod djeluje na različite tipove kose (moja je tanka i sklona mašćenju, njena je gusta i puno je ima, ali se isto zamasti na tjemenu dosta brzo; obje su tretirane bojanjem). Moram reći da sam, za razliku od kozmetike, dosta izbirljiva po pitanju proizvoda za njegu kose. Jednom kad nađem one koji mi odgovaraju teško prelazim na druge i zapravo niti ne pokušavam naći nešto drugačije ako mi to prvo odgovara (i dalje koristim L'Oreal Ever Riche šampon i regenerator i povremeno L'Oreal Inoa tretman za obojanu kosu). Kad mi je Oriflame ponudio ove proizvode na recenziju, odlučila sam ih ipak uzeti u obzir jer inače obožavam zeleni čaj i njegov miris i okus i željela sam ga isprobati i u obliku šampona, a i svidjelo mi se što obećavaju volumen.  Proizvodi su me skroz iznenadili prirodnim mirisom, koji podsjeća na tek skuhani čaj, a ne na onaj ledeni čaj/sok kakvog sam zamišljala. Nakon dva tjedna korištenja, ovo su moji prvi dojmovi o njima.



The shampoo is ideal for those morning showers because it gives you much needed freshness and makes you more alert. It foams up nicely, nothing too much, requires two rinsings before your hair is completely clean. It does give you that squeaky clean effect, which is not something I usually like because of my highlights and such products make my hair hard to comb afterwards. However, in combination with the conditioner, this was not the case. My hair was soft, but not overly treated, so I guess you could say that these are perfect for everyday usage, with an  emphasis on using stronger products at least once a week for thorough nourishment (or coconut oil).

Šampon mi je idealan za jutarnje tuširanje i pranje kose jer me odmah i razbudi i opusti, a kosu učini svježom i čistom. Lijepo i lako se zapjeni, posebno kod drugog šamponiranja, što je za mene nekakav optimalan broj da bi kosa bila zaista čista (ostavlja onaj škripavi osjećaj pod prstima). Nakon toga koristim regenerator koji je istog/sličnog mirisa i koji je srednje gustoće, a kosu njeguje bez da ju oteža. Daje joj njegu koja je dostatna da bi se kosa poslije mogla raščešljati bez čupanja, ali nije za one s ispucanim vrhovima tj. neće raditi nekakav magičan efekt na takvoj kosi (a to niti ne obećava). Kosa mi je od njega mekana, glatka, ali i dalje lepršava i zato mislim da je idealan za svakodnevnu uporabu, dok bi se za veću njegu jednom tjedno mogao uvesti bogatiji tretman (npr. kokosovo ulje).


These are after all volume products made for thin hair such as mine is. I have not noticed any changes in my hair thickness (of course), but I did notice a significant change in my hair's „perkiness“ or whatever you'd like to call it, it was definitely more flowy, lightweight and I guess that all of those things do go in the volume category. I felt like my hair is truly clean, fresh and it remained clean even on the second day which rarely happens to me. It only happened with two shampoos before this one, so I guess that's a worthy fact.

Pošto su ovo ipak proizvodi koji prvenstveno obećavaju veći volumen tankoj kosi, red je da kažem nešto i o tome. Nisam primijetila neko magično povećanje u gustoći pa time i volumenu svoje kose, naravno, ali sam primijetila da mi je kosa puno lepršavija, nije onako priljubljena uz tjeme nego je odignuta od njega, lagana je, poletna. Samim time, djeluje vizualno kao da ima više volumena u njoj, a meni je to sasvim dovoljno jer više ne mogu ni očekivati od šampona. Još dodatno ovo sve pojačam tako što prebacim kosu naopako kad ju sušim te pokušam na četke izvući barem ovaj gornji sloj koji inače onako mrtvo pada. Sviđa mi se efekt kojeg daju i šampon i regenerator jer mi je kosa od njih baš pročišćena, mirisna, lagana i doista podsjeća na sam efekt kakvog zeleni čaj pruža našem tijelu. Kosa mi je ostala čista i drugog dana, što mi se do sad dogodilo samo s dva druga šampona, pa je svakako vrijedno spomena.

I would recommend this product to the people who:

  • Have greasy hair
  • Thin hair that has not been coloured or treated*
  • Normal hair that requires freshness
  • For anyone who wants a lightweight effect
*For those with treated hair such as mine is, I would suggest using a stronger conditioner or a mask that is a bit more nourishing on the ends


     Preporučila bih ovaj proizvod svima koji:

  • Imaju masnu kosu
  • Imaju tanku ili normalnu kosu koja nije tretirana*
  • Svima koji od šampona traže svježinu
  • Svima koji vole osjećaj lakoće i lepršavosti
*Za one kojima je kosa tretirana bojanjem ipak bih preporučila malo jači regenerator ili barem masku koja će njegovati vrhove kako je potrebno

5 for 5: XY - my favorite male actors!

10 comments

I have recently seen this post at one of the blogs I like to read -  Fantazija – and instantly felt the need to do my own personalised list since its a really fun way for us ladies to share our mutual fangirl fantasies! All of my friends know that I like to watch many different tv shows, and with them, of course, some favorite actors emerged. My taste in men is mostly defined by their character and personality traits, but of course, good looks can't be bothersome. So this is my list of top five favorite male actors/celebrity crushes and I dare you all to do the same on your blog!

Nedavno sam vidjela ovaj post na jednom od meni dragih blogova – Fantazija – i odmah osjetila potrebu da i sama složim sličnu listu s obzirom da mislim da mi dame volimo dijeliti naše fan-girl fantazije jedna s drugom, a i s ostatkom svijeta, često na njihovu žalost. Svi moji prijatelji znaju da volim gledati puno tv serija, a s njima su dakako, kroz godine, došli i neki najdraži glumci. Ukus u muškarcima mi uglavnom ovisi o njihovom karakteru, ponašanju, više nego samoj fizionomiji, ali naravno, lijepo je kad dođu u kompletu. U nastavku slijedi moja lista najdražih muških glumaca/celebrity crusheva, a vas izazivam da napravite sličnu na svom blogu!

Alexander Skarsgaard


I believe that people around me are starting to hate me because of my obssesive photo and interview sharings of this magnificent human being. I first noticed him in True Blood where he played a swedish vampire with an incredibly attractive Louisiana accent; then again in Straw Dogs where he played a much more malicious role and in Generation Kill where he embodied the sgt. Brad „Iceman“ Colbert. Alex has that sexy, crazy vibe but he's a real nice person in interviews as well. When it comes to looks, I think the pictures tell for themselves!

Vjerujem da me bliski ljudi polako počinju mrziti radi stalnog dijeljenja fotki i videa ovog čudesnog ljudskog bića. Prvo sam ga primijetila u True Blood-u gdje je igrao ulogu moćnog švedskog vampira s južnjačkim naglaskom kojeg sam obožavala, zatim opet u Straw Dogs u jednoj puno zlobnijoj (ali na moje neobjektivno čudo, ništa manje privlačnoj) ulozi i na kraju u Generation Kill gdje je utjelovio narednika Brada „Icemana“ Colberta. Alex ima tu neku čudnu, psiho seksi vibru kojoj je teško odoljeti, a kako se da zaključiti po intervjuima, stvarno je draga osoba uživo. Što se tiče izgleda, slike sve govore!


Matthew McConaughey


This is a new one, I did like him in romantic comedies before, but he would never have gotten on this list if it wasn't for his role of detective Rustin Cohle in True Detective. For anyone who has seen the show, I believe all explainings are unnecessary. He was smart, hurt and damaged, but kind, and that only made him even more attractive than when he was all pumped and ripped in his previous roles. I also quite liked him in Interstellar and his Texas accent is something to die for J

Ovo je novost u mojoj kategoriji te iako sam ga voljela u romantičnim komedijama, nikad se ne bi pojavio na ovoj listi da nije doživio preobrazbu u liku Rustina Cohlea u seriji True Detective. Za sve koji su gledali seriju, ne treba ništa objašnjavati. Bio je pametan, povrijeđen, kompliciran, ali istinski dobar i pošten te ga je to činilo privlačnijim od prijašnjih surferskih uloga (+ scene u bijeloj potkošulji). Bio je odličan i u Interstellaru, a o teksaškom naglasku bolje da ne govorim J


Mads Mikkelsen


Mads is such an incredible actor, he is the king of all of his roles, I discovered him through Hannibal but adored him in Jagten (The Hunt) and a Royal Affair. He is older, but always classy, sophisticated, well mannered and dressed, a person that redefines my whole taste in men. Mads is a former dancer and you can thank that for his gorgeous body features.

Mads je odličan glumac, jedan od boljih dana, zavlada svakom ulogom u trenu. Otkrila sam ga preko Hannibala, ali obožavala i u Jagtenu (The Hunt) i Royal Affair. Iako je stariji od ostalih na popisu, uopće mu to ne zamjeram. Inteligentan, sofisticiran, uvijek lijepo obučen i s pravim manirima, redefinirao je moj ukus u muškarcima u potpunosti. Mikkelsen se prije bavio plesom pa tomu možemo zahvaliti na divnoj građi tijela.


Hugh Jackman


I believe he will appear on more of these lists, after all he is a ladies' favorite for his good looks and kind character. One of the rare actors that leads a fully functional family life. I liked him best in The Fountain and Xmen, but he was also quite good in Prestige.

Vjerujem da će se naći na puno ovih lista jer je ipak jedan od najdražih glumaca današnjice, kud zbog super izgleda, tud zbog divnog karaktera, humora i svega ostalog. Jedan od rijetkih glumaca koji vodi savršeno funkcionalan obiteljski život, ne voli dramu ni novinske naslovnice. Najdraži mi je bio u Fountainu i Xmenu, ali odličan je svakako i u Prestigeu.


Jared Padalecki/Benedict Cumberbatch


The only reason for Jarpad is Supernatural – where you're either team Sam or team Dean (or perhaps Cass). He always seemed more welcoming than Dean and I have a thing for very tall actors apparently. And Benedict we all loved in Sherlock so what's more to say? Cheekbones 


Nisam mogla odabrati jednog pa neka podijele ovo mjesto zajedno. Jarpada volim samo radi Supernaturala i tu fanovi već znaju da smo ili tim Sam ili tim Dean (možda Cass po novom?). Uvijek mi je bio pristupačniji i draži od Deana, a i fizički je više po mom ukusu, valjda padam na te užasno visoke (i on i Skarsgaard preko 190cm). Benedicta smo svi voljeli u Sherlocku pa tu nema što posebno za dodati osim – jagodice?
