Review: L'Occitane Shea Melting Honey (EN/SLO)

I was sent this care package from the lovely L'Occitane Slovenia Team (their PR person, she's so kind!). Even if I am not a huge fan of honey scented stuff, I accepted because I was sure that L'Occitane would add a twist to the scent with the Shea butter.

//
Zelo prijazna PR-jevka, ki ima čez nekaj fantastičnih znamk, med njimi tudi L'Occitane, mi je poslala ta čudovit paket iz nove linije - Med s karitejem. Sama nisem ljubiteljica medenih vonjav, ampak sem sprejela ponudbo enostavno zato, ker sem bila prepričana, da sam vonj ne bo samostojno medeni, ampak bo nekaj več. 

And you know what? I was right.
The two products I got are the whipped hand cream (30ml/7,60€) and a body scrub – Exfoliating sugars (175g/23,40€).

In veste kaj? Prav sem imela.
Dobila sem dva izdelka, prva je Smetanasta krema za roke (30ml/7,60€) in piling za telo - Sladkorni piling z medom (175g/23,40€).


I will be talking about both of these products in this review, but let me start with the official description of the first item.

//
O obeh izdelkih bom govorila v tej recenziji, ampak za začetek bom dodala uradni opis izdelkov. 

The Melting Honey Exfoliating Sugars peeling


This melting balm contains sugar crystals and ground walnut shells to gently exfoliate the skin and remove dead cells. Enriched with shea butter (5%) and honey from Provence, it leaves skin feeling silky smooth and delicately scented with tender notes of melting honey.

I must say that I'm a fan of the package. The lid is made from metal and the bottom is made from plastic. The packaging itself is very sturdy. The plastic bottom helps so it won't rust under the shower (if you leave it in the cabin for use).

Piling za telo vsebuje sladkorne kristale in drobno zmlete orehove luščine, ki nežno in učinkovito odstranijo odmrle kožne celice. Po uporabi je koža svilnato gladka ter odišavljena s slastno dišavo mehkega medu. Formula je obogatena s karitejevim maslom (5 %) in mehčalnim medom iz Provanse.

Kot prvo, embalaža mi je zelo všeč. Žive barve, panj in čebelica. Luštno. Všeč mi je, ker je pokrovček kovinski in posodica plastična. To se pravi, da ne bo embalaža zarjavela pod tušem (sploh če ste take kot jaz in puščate vse v tuš kabini). Je tudi čvrsta embalaža in super za potovanja - če se vam ljubi nositi tako težke stvari s seboj. 


The first thing that I noticed (except the lovely design of the packaging) was the scent. It's a gentle honey scent with something more. It has a bit of a floral scent to it. I can't pinpoint the exact notes, but it's pleasant even for my nose.

I used it during a shower and it's a bit hard to get out – since it's this thick and semi-hard paste that melts as you put it on your skin. Lovely. It exfoliates well and I noticed (even before I read about it), that it contains tiny particles of some nuts. That's amazing!

The skin after the exfoliation is super soft and smooth – it feels nourished because of the butter in the peeling. I am looking forward using it again ;).

//
Prva stvar, ki sem jo opazila (razen krasne embalaže), je bil vonj. Ta je nežen medeni vonj z nečim več. Se mi zdi, da ima tudi nekakšen cvetlični vonj, ampak nisem prepričana. Še vseeno mi je vonj všeč, ker ni klasičen medeni vonj.

Piling sem uporabila med tuširanjem in lahko rečem, da ga je kar težko dobiti ven, saj je sam piling ta trda pasta, ki potrebuje nekaj toplote ali moči, da se jo spravi ven. Všeč mi je, ker vsebuje zmlete oreščke, kot sredstvo za piling in obenem navlaži in nahrani kožo. Po uporabi je koža ne samo gladka ampak tudi mehka. Veselim se redne uporabe pilinga! :)

The second product I got is a fun one – a whipped hand cream.

What's a whipped hand cream? Good question.


Here's the official description:
With its high concentration of shea butter (25%), softening honey from Provence and its innovative whipped texture, this cream helps to nourish, soften and protect hands while enveloping them in a delicious scent of honey.

On the outside, it looks like a regular hand cream. The great thing is, that it contains 25% of shea butter which mean it is even more nourishing than their regular hand cream!

//
Drugi izdelek, ki sem ga dobila je Smetanasta krema za roke. Kaj je to? 
Dobro vprašanje. 

Tu je uradni opis:
Krema pomaga zaščititi, nahraniti in zmehčati kožo rok ter jo ovije s slastno dišavo mehkega medu. Formula z edinstveno smetanasto teksturo je obogatena z visoko koncentracijo karitejevega masla (25 %) in mehčalnim medom iz Provanse.

Na zunaj, izgleda kakor navadna krema za roke. Super je, ker vsebuje kar 25% karitejevega masla, kar je več kot njihova stalna krema za roke (ki vsebuje 20% karitejevega masla). To pomeni, da je še bolj hranilna!

Now, the fun part. When you squeeze it out it makes the same noises as does a real whipped cream does once it gets out of the can (those prepackaged in a can) and it also looks similarly!
Haha, I had a laugh when I first saw it! The cream is easy to spread and has this mousse-like texture once it's out of the tube. The scent is very honey-like.

The only downside? I can see myself using this tube in a very short period of time, because of its consistency. It's fun, but 30g isn't a lot with such a texture.  

//
Sedaj pa k zabavnemu delu. Ko se kremico iztisne iz tube, proizvede enake (oz zelo podobne) zvoke, kakor jih smetana iz pločevinke. Tudi podobne oblike je, ko pride ven, le veliko bolj kompaktna. 
Sem se prav nasmejala, ko sem jo prvič nanesla na kožo. 
Na srečo se krema enostavno razmaže, saj ima "puhasto" teksturo, kako kakšna pena. Tudi vonj je zelo meden, ampak se dokaj hitro razdiši. 

Negativna stran te kreme je ta, da se jo zelo hitro porabi, predvsem zaradi te edinstvene teksture. Ampak če ne drugega, bo moja prva krema za roke, ki jo bom porabila v celoti. 

Overall I am very happy with this collection and I really want their charity soap from the same collection (that is 2€). But the soap is extremely hard to get your hands on - sold out in most places, boohoo!

V končni fazi sem zelo zadovoljna s poslanima izdelkoma. Prejšnji teden sem šla v lov na milo iz te kolekcije, ki pa je žal na večini prodajnih mest že razprodano. Kar je razumljivo, saj je milo le 2€ in nosi dobrodelno sporočilo (saj gre del od nakupa za bojproti slepoti in slabovidnosti v državah v razvoju).

Kaj pa ve, si boste kaj privoščile iz te kolekcije?
What about you, will you get anything nice from this collection?

  3. Jaz imam tudi oboje in mi je odlično. Kremo sem pa porabila v enem tednu. Z njo sem si trikrat na dan mazala roke in mi je res takoj šla. Veliko hitreje se porablja, kot druge njihove :D
