The Body Shop: Shade Adjusting Drops - Lightening

Friday, February 03, 2017

Živjo punce !
Ta objava je za vse, ki v drogerijah stežka najdete svoj popoln odtenek tekočega pudra. Moja polt je porcelanasta, saj izgledam bela kot sneguljčica in seveda v naših drogerijah redko najdem puder v odtenku, ki bi se ujemal z mojim tenom kože. Najboljši ton ima trenutno samo Revlon Colorstay v odtenku Buff, ampak še ta je malce pretemen. Tako sem začela raziskovati izdelke, ki bi posvetlili puder ter najprej preizkusila Alverde podlago, ki je malce pregosta, čeprav še vedno dobro deluje. Nato pa sem končno dobila priložnost za nakup The Body Shop osvetlitvenih kapljic. Žal je za nakup potrebno obiskati sosednjo Avstrijo, pa vendar se splača.

Hi girls !
I've been always struggling to find a perfect shade of foundation, especially in the winter time. My skin is pale as a Snow White, which doesn't bother me, however when I can't find a right foundation I get quite frustrated. Plus, our drugstores don't carry the lightest shades, eventhough a lot of population is very white - no logic there right. So the palest and more appropriate foundation for me is Revlon Colorstay, which sometimes isn't the perfect match. That's why firstly I tried Alverde mixing cream which worked but not perfectly. And then I finally got an opportunity to purchase these lightening drops by The Body Shop. Unfortunately you cannot get them in our country, however a visit to neighbour country Austria totally pays off.




Na pogled ima tekočina malce roza podton, kar naj bi imelo učinek nevtraliziranja. Torej je super tudi za tiste, ki imate problem, da so tekoče podlage preveč oranžne. Ob mešanju s tekočo podlago oz. pudrom pa tona ne spremeni v opazno roza, kar je meni pomembno saj more biti moja podlaga vedno bolj rumenkasta, skladno s tonom kože. Kapljice uporabljam tako, da na dlan roke dam željeno količino pudra, nato pa dodam kapalko osvetlitvenih kapljic ter premešam s palčko. Tekstura kapljic je tekoča in ob mešanju ne spremeni gostosti ali kakovosti pudra, kar je odlično. Ena kapalka naj bi ton podlage posvetlila za 1/2 odtenka, vendar se mi zdi da osvetli še bolje.
Sama embalaža pa je malce nadležna saj je tako kot pri Catrice HD tekočem pudru, sam "vrat" zelo ozek in ko vrneš kapalko nazaj, se lahko tekočina razlije okoli.

V primerjavi z Alverde podlago za osvetlitev, je to definitivno boljša različica saj tekoči puder osvetli za vsaj 1 odtenek ter ne spremeni same teksture. Alverde podlaga pa je meni osebno malce pregosta.
Skratka The Body Shop kapljice so odličen izdelek za nas sneguljčice - dekleta s porcelanasto poltjo ali pa če imate doma več temnejših pudrov, ki vam morda poleti ustrezajo, pozimi pa bi jih želele posvetliti. Lahko pa kupite tudi odtenek za temnitev ter tako spremenite svoj ton podlage, ki je primeren večino leta, v popolnega za poletno zagorelo polt.
Za 15 ml sem odštela 16€, kar ni malo, vendar se mi zdi totalno vredno, da v obraz ne izgledam oranžna kot buča.



This innovation is great for pale girls if you cannot find the right shade of foundation or if it's too orange for you. With a concentration of white and pink pigments it helps neutralise yellowness while lightening. However, with my yellow foundation I don't notice it changing into being more pink, which is important to me as I want it to be yellow toned to match my body skin tone.
On the back of my hand I apply the desired amount of foundation and then I add a drop of lightening drops. It works great with liquid foundations as it doesn't change the texture and quality and it mixes easily. One drop is supposed to make your foundation ½ a shade lighter, however to me it looks like one full shade lighter.
I don't like the packaging because the top is so thin, that when you but back in the dropper, it can spill out a bit. Howver otherwise the product itself is so good, I don't care about that.

In comparison to Alverde lightening cream, it works better because it doesn't change the texture of foundation and the lightening effect is definitely visible. The Alverde cream seems to be a bit too thick. 
All in all, I simply think that The Body Shop lightening drops are a magical product which totally saves me from embarrising orange makeup look. It's great for pale skin tone or whether you have darker foundations suitable for summer laying in your drawer and you want to lighten them up. 
Otherwise you can try a darkening drop which would transform you "all-year-around" foundation to a summer appropriate one.
The price is around 16€ for 15ml, which is not the cheapest, however totally worth it.
