Shower gels, creams and oils I’d go back to anytime
/Gelovi, kreme i ulja za tuširanje kojima bih se vratila bilo kada

Classic shower gels are so last year. I had been a faithful user for years and years of my life, and then I found out that skincare market has evolved. Now, I can choose among various novel textures to nourish my skin while cleansing it. Creams and oils are not just for dry skin anymore, but it was the time during which I went to see a dermatologist for dry body skin that I was recommended to try out some of the “non-standard” products. And I did not part with them ever since. (Note: I mention sodium laureate sulfate as an ingredient that is usually not bad but has the tendency to support skin dry-out, so it’s not too welcome among people of dry skin.)

Klasični su gelovi za tuširanje tako lanjska stvar. Bila sam vjerni korisnik istih godinama, and onda sam otkrila da je tržište napredovalo u njezi kože. Danas mogu birati između mnogih novih teksura kako bih njegovala svoju kožu za vrijeme tuširanja. Kreme i ulja nisu više rezervirani za suhu kožu, ali sam to otkrila upravo u vrijeme odlaska dermatologu zbog suhe kože tijela, i on mi je u konačnici preporučio isprobati neke “nestandardne” proizvode. I od onda se nisam razdvojila od njih. (Opaska: natrijev lauret sulfat spominjem kao agens koji inače nije štetan, ali može pomagati isušivanje kože pa nije pretjerano poželjan među suhokošcima.)

Dove Purely Pampering nourishing body wash

If I had a penny every time I bought a product from this marvellous product line, I’d be the richest beauty junkie in Europe. I think I’ve tried each and every one of them (see a part of the range here), and among the favourites are coconut/jasmine, pistachio, shea butter/vanilla, and there is even one with exfoliating beads!The texture is indeed very pampering: gentle, milky cream that takes really good care of my normal-to-dry skin, and does the body wash thing really well. In the ingredients there are often some nice plant oils hidden without incorporating nasty things like polyquaternium-7 or parabenes. The only drawback is that it’s a bit harder to wash out purely with water due to its creamy thickness. Otherwise, total recommendation.

Dove Purely Pampering njegujuća tuširalica

Da mi je kuna svaki put kada sam kupila proizvod iz ove fantasrične linije, bila bih najbogatiji ovisnik o kozmetici. Mislim da sam isprobala sve do jednog koji postoji (vidi dio ponude ovdje), a među favoritima su mi kokos/jasmin, pistacija, shea amaslac/vanilija, a čak postoji i jedan s pilingirajućim zrncima! Teksutra me doista lako razmazi: nježna, mliječna krema koja se jako dobro brine o mojoj normalnoj do suhoj koži te jako dobro očisti i kožu za vrijeme tuširanja. Među sastojcima ima skrivenih biljnih ulja, bez dodatka loših tvari poput polyquaterniuma 7  ili parabena. Jedini je nedostatak to što se malo teže ispire samo vodom  zbog svoje kremaste gustoće. Inače, totalna preporuka.

Vichy Spa Shower Gel-Cream with Vichy Thermal Spa Water rich in 15 minerals + shea butter & white clay

Except for sodium laureate sulfate, this product is packed with some nice stuff, like plant oils, salicylic acid and kaolin, however it contains polyquaternium-7, which is something I don’t appreciate as much. Despite that, it is paraben free and suitable for sensitive skin, and was a bit better than regular shower gels in terms of maintaining the skin hydration level. It smells like any ordinary shower gel, and I would recommend it a bit less concerning its price and the para-pharmaceutical range.

Vichy Spa gel-krema za tuširanje s Vichy termalnom vodom bogatom 15 minerala + shea maslac & bijela glina

Izuzev natrijevog laureat sulfata, ovaj je proizvod pun dobrih tvar, poput biljnih ulja, salicilne kiseline i kaolina, no nažalost sadrži polyquaterinum-7, što je ipak nešto što ne cijenim previše. Unatoč tome, bez parabena je i pogodan za osjetljivu kožu, te mi je bilo malo bolje od običnog gela za tuširanje u održavanju razine hidratacije kože, Miriše mi na bilo koji drugi običan gel te bih ga mogla nešto manje preporučiti s obzirom na njegovu cijenu i to što pripada parafarmaceutskom rangu.

Afrodita Cotton Flower cream shower gel with silk proteins*

Another shower gel with a bit thicker and enriched formula. Its smell was rather peculiar, and my SO kept saying it smelled like Chivas (and it’s supposed to be cotton flowers?). To be honest, I am not sure how much are the not overly abundant proteins of hydrolysed silk useful in a shower gel but it was again a decent drugstore shower product, just like any other by Afrodita Cosmetics. Hard facts: parabene and silicone free but contains sodium laureate sulfate.

Afrodita Cotton Flower kremasti gel za tuširanje s proteinima svile*

Još jedan gel za tuširanje s nešto gušćom i bogatijom teksturom. Njegov mi je miris bio neobičan, a dragi je uporno govorio da mu miriše na Chivas (a trebali bi biit cvjetovi pamuka?). Da vam budem iskrena, nisam sigurna koliko su ne-previše-zastupljeni proteini hidrolizirane svilekorisni u jednom gelu za tuširanje, no onda opet – bio mi je sasvim pristojan drogerijski proizvod za tuširanje, baš kao i svaki drugi iz redova Afrodite. Činjenice: ne sadrži parabene ni silikone, ali sadrži natrijev lauret sulfat.

Dove Nourishing Care shower oil with moroccan argan oil

Now this one is quite different than the others. This product is actually shower oil, and contains 55% nourishing oils to protect skin from dryness. My dermatologist had recommended me shower oils for the same reason many years ago (at the time I was using my own enhanced version of Babylove), and last year I decided to continue following her advice as winter was approaching (my skin tends to have dry, itchy spots in winter and spring). So this one was just perfect for this cause, with a smell that is slightly unusual but still pleasant. I really hope Dove releases other versions of this shower oil as the same one over and over makes me a bit sick of the smell, but I nevertheless adore the oily nourishment it provides.

Dove Nourishing Care ulje za tuširanje s uljem morokanskog argana

Ovaj je proizvod malo posebniji od drugih. Naime, on je ustvari ulje za tuširanje te sadrži 55% njegujućih ulja za zaštitu kože od isušivanja. Moj mi je dermatolog bio preporučio ulja za tuširanje u istu svrhu prije dosta godina (tada sam se držala vlastite poboljšane verzije Babylovea iz dm-a), i tek sam prošle godine odlučila nastaviti slijediti njezin savjet budući da se približavala zima (koža mi ima tendenciju tijekom zime i prioljeća imati suhe dijelove koji lagano svrbuckaju). Stoga je ovaj konkretno bio savršen za to, doduše s mirisom koji je nešto neobilniji, ali i dalje ugodan. Zbilja se nadam da će Dove uskoror izbaciti i druge verzije ovog ulja jer korištenje te jednog te istog konstantno malo dosadi mom nosu, no ipak obožavam uljastu njegu koju mi pruža.
