Review: Bocassy Serum

Friday, March 27, 2015

Živjo !
V sredini februarja sem kot ena izmed prvih žensk v Sloveniji imela priložnost preizkusiti novo znamk: Bocassy. Nekaj o znamki:
"Bocassy Paris je podjetje ustvarjeno z enim ciljem, nuditi kvaliteto in nego ne samo našim uporabnikom in ne samo zato, da se zadovolji občutek, temveč tudi zato, da se poteši zavest."
"Ustvariti luksuzno nego kože od znotraj in navzven, zavzemati se za kvaliteto, ki dela za ljudi in ekologijo ter nikoli proti njim, ostati znotraj meja, vendar konstantno težiti k tistemu neznanemu in neodkritemu… To je Bocassy." - Pa vendar je to kozmetika hrvaškega porekla.

Prvi izdelek na mojem seznamu je bil njihov serum. Zadnjih nekaj mesecev ugotavljam, da so morda serumi za obraz najbolj primerni za moj masten tip kože, saj jo dobro navlažijo, se hitro vpijejo, kljub vsemu pa običajno ne pustijo mastnega občutka ter so zelo lahkotni. To je moj tretji serum, ki sem ga sprobala in poglejmo kako se je obnesel...

I got the chance to be one of the first women in Slovenia to try this new brand called: Bocassy. 
Something about the brand:
"Bocassy Paris is a company settled with one goal only, to provide quality and care not only for its consumers; not only to satisfy the feeling, but consciousness too."
"Our ideas will always transcend the demand; it is much wider; it conjuncts ecology and charity, it conjuncts awareness on ingredients and that which is best for our body and our planet. It is our necessity to offer luxurious product and make it affordable to everyone." However it is made in Croatia.
My first item on the list was this serum. In the last three or so months I've discovered that my mixed/oily skin type really likes serums. They usually really hydrate my skin, sink in quickly and don't leave a greasy feeling behind due to being so lightweight. This is my third serum I've tried in my life so let's see how I like it or not ?...








Ta serum naj bi zagotavljal močno učvrstitev ter hidratacijo. Osnovne sestavine: Vitamini A, E in B5, izvleček janeža, izvleček korena gabeza, olivno olje, karitijevo maslo in kakavovo maslo.

Najprej me je zanimalo kako lahko vsi ti vitamini izboljšajo kožo.
Vitamin A - So vse spojine, ki imajo biološko aktivnost retinola - torej poznamo ga tudi kot retinol v kozmetiki. Je pomemben za nego telesa. Predvsem je dober za rast in obnovo kože, kosti in izboljšanje vida v temi. V negi vitamin A pri občutljivi in poškodovani koži poskrbi, da se obnovijo kožne celice, gladijo gube in odstranjujejo starostni pigmentni madeži.
Vitamin E - Vitamin E je antioksidant, ki lahko zagotavlja zaščito pred negativnimi zunanjimi vplivi. Nevtralizira proste radikale.
Vitamin B5 - Poznamo ga tudi kot pantonentsko kislino. V sodelovanju z drugimi vitamini B kompleksa (niacin, holin, inozitol) in aminokislino histidinom igra pomembno vlogo pri zaščiti kože. Pospešuje sintezo kožnih lipidov, zlasti ceramidov, in preprečuje dehidracijo kože.

This serum is supposed to be strong firming and hydrating. Main ingredients: Vitamins A, E and B5, anise extract, comfrey root extract, olive oil, shea butter and cocoa butter.

Vitamin A - Considered a good antioxidant in some of its various forms, particularly as retinol and retinyl palmitate.
Vitamin E - Considered an antioxidant superstar. It is one of the most well-known and researched antioxidants, both when taken orally and when used in skin-care products. If there were an antioxidant hall of fame, vitamin E would likely be its inaugural member (though do not take that to mean it is the "best" antioxidant—there isn't a best, just lots of great, extremely helpful options). It is fat-soluble and available in various forms, with the most biologically active being alpha-tocopherol.
Vitamin B5 - Also known as pantothenic acid: and often touted as being effective for acne. However, there is only one study supporting this notion and it dates from the early 1980s. There is no current research showing this to be an effective treatment for acne, but research shows it can be effective for hydration and wound healing.

Moje mnenje:

Izdelek je pakiran v matirano rdečo škatlo z luštnim posvetilom na vrhu. Prav tako ima ob strani nalepko, ki naj bi zagotavljala, da se v trgovinah embalaža ne odpira, pa vendar sem jo sama na vrhu stežka odprla, na dnu pa je šlo z lahkoto, tako da jim to ni najbolj uspelo (seveda bi bila še potrebna ena nalepka na dnu). Embalaža izdelka je "luksuzna" saj je iz stekla, ne izgleda poceni ter ima svojo težo. Pa vendar je pokrovček plastičen. Na vrhu ima pumpico s katero pa imam sama včasih nekaj težav, saj včasih s pritiskom doziranje ni enakomerno, temveč včasih špricne tudi z roke. Mogoče je samo moja embalaža takšna, ampak vseeno ni preveč nadležno tako da ji to oprostim. Prav tako mi je všeč, da vidiš koliko izdelka je še v steklenički saj je prozorna. Tekstura je tekoča, lahkotna (obstajajo še bolj tekoči serumi). Vonj je prijeten, bolj naraven (verjetno zaradi olivnega olja) ter ne preveč močen.
Za cel obraz zadostuje en potisk na pumpico. Serum se v kožo zelo hitro vpije tako, da ga moreš hitro razmazat po celotni površini obraza. Za seboj pusti mogoče čisto majhen sijaj, ampak je včasih skoraj neviden ter ni moteč in se ga tudi na otip ne občuti. Zelo mi je všeč kako navlaži mojo kožo ter je ne zmasti. Zato se odlično obnese kot podlaga za ličila. V februarju sem se soočala s suho kožo, ki ji je primanjkovalo "vlage" ter se je ta izdelek s tem čudovito spopadal in je moji koži povrnil popolno hidratacijo. Tako me koža več ne srbi in ni izsušena. Izdelek ne maši mojih por ter nisem imela problemov z mozoljčki, zato ga priporočam tudi tistim, ki imate kakor jaz precej mastno kožo v T-coni. Ker sem stara komaj 22 let nisem opazila učvrstitvenega učinka na obrazu saj ga tudi ne potrebujem. Sama sem ga uporabljala zjutraj namesto dnevne kreme ter čez nekaj časa po potrebi nanesla matirno kremo. Do zdaj sem ga preizkušala mesec in pol in z veseljem ga bom uporabljala dokler ga ne zmanjka. Sicer znamka ni najbolj ugodna, pa vendar nekako pri negi za obraz, še posebej kremah običajno plačaš za kvaliteto.

Cena: pribl. 24€ / 50ml - Ekskluzivno je na voljo v prodajalnah Műller (Celje, Europark Maribor)

My thoughts on the product:

The product is packaged in a red mat box with a quote on the top. They made sure nobody would open the product with a sticker on top, but I had troubles opening the product on top, meanwhile on the bottom it was easy to open (they definitely should put on another sticker). The glass packaging of this serum feels luxurious, has a nice weight and doesn't look cheap at all. Also it's very handy because you can see how much is left in it. Thought the pump on the top is of course plastic. I've had some difficulties with the pump because sometimes when you press on it, the product just squirts everywhere on your hand. I don't know if that's just my packaging or I don't know how to work with it, however it is not that annoying, so I don't mind.
The texture is thin, like liquid, however it's not the most liquidy of the serums out there. The smell is nice, a bit natural (maybe due to olive oil), not over-powering.
You only need one "pump" for an entire face. Quickly sinks into the skin, so you need to quickly work with it. It's light-weighed and sometimes leaves behind just a tiny bit of a shine, which is not that obvious and nor you can feel it. Works great as makeup base. I really love how hydrating it feels. It totally helped with my dehydrated skin in February, so no more itchiness or dryness there. Also it doesn't clog my pores nor did I experience any pimples, so I do recommend it to anyone who also has mixed/oily skin. Because I'm only 22 I can't talk about firming effects. I used it mainly as a daily moisturizer and if in need I applied a mattifying cream just to make my makeup last longer. I've been trying it for a month and a half and I'll continue to use it. It's not the cheapest serum out there, however I always think you pay for quality in face creams and serums.

Price: around 24€ / 50 ml
