essence Pure Skin anti spot toner & powder



Essence je brend čije se ime dominantno vezuje za dekorativnu kozmetiku, no verujem da ste primetile kako pod okriljem brenda postoji i preparativna linija proizvoda za negu i čišćenje kože- Pure Skin.

Nekoliko godina ranije imala sam priliku isprobati hidratantnu kremu za lice iz kolekcije My Skin i bila sam poprilično zadovoljna učinkom. 
Moram priznati da tonike za lice koristim vrlo retko, a ono što mi je privuklo pažnju kod ovog proizvoda je powder/ puder u toniku. Bila sam po malo skeptična, no radoznalost je pobedila, te se proizvod našao u korpici :)

Šta kaže proizvođač?
Efektivan toner za čišćenje i uklanjanje nepravilnosti obogaćen puderom koji ostavlja idealan mat finiš na koži. Efektivno se bori sa bubuljicama, mitiserima, poboljšava sveukupni izgled kože, te osigurava dugotrajan matirajući efekat. Jednostavno protresite bočicu i nanesite na kožu. Dermatološki ispitano.

Essence is a brand whose name is dominantly associated with make up, but I do believe you have noticed how, under the brand name, there is also preparative line of products for skin cleansing and care by the name- Pure Skin.
Couple of years ago I had an opportunity to try and use hydrating face cream from My Skin collection, and I was quite pleased with the effect.
I have to admit that I'm using face tonics/ toners very rarely, but the thing that caught my attention with this product was combination of small particles of powder and toner in one bottle. In the beginning I was a bit skeptical, but curiosity won (as usual) and product found it's place in my shopping bag :)

What the manufacturer/ Essence says?
The effective anti-spot toner is enriched with powder for the ideal finish to your face cleansing ritual. It effectively battles unpopular spots and blackheads, improves the appearance of your skin and has a long-lasting mattifying effect thanks to its powder ingredients. simply shake and apply – for a perfect pure and mat complexion! effectiveness dermatologically confirmed.


Proizvod dolazi u plavičastoj, plastičnoj bočici zapremine 200 ml.
Ispod plastičnog poklopca nalazi se suženi otvor koji je sasvim dovoljan za pravilno doziranje tonika bez prosipanja. Ne znam kako vi, ali ne volim široka grla na bočicama upravo zbog prosipanja.
Na dnu bočice uočićete beli talog od pudera- vrlo sitnih, belih čestica.

*
The product comes in a transparent blue, plastic bottle of 200 ml capacity.
Under a plastic cover is narrow opening which is quite sufficient for proper tonic dosage without spilling. Don't know about you, but I don't like wide openings on bottles because of spillage possibility. 
At the bottom of the bottle you will notice a white residue of powder-very fine, white particles.


Pre nanošenja proizvoda, bočicu je potrebno dobro protresti kako bi se puder pomešao s tečnim delom tonika. Na početku korišćenja, dok je bočica još uvek puna, potrebno je mućkati nešto duže :) Nakon što se bočica delimično isprazni korišćenjem, mućkanje je puno kraće i lakše jer tečnost ima više praznog prostora i mešanje dve komponente je brže.

*
Before applying the product, the bottle needs to be shaken good to mix the powder particles with the liquid part of the tonic.
At the beginning of use, when the bottle is still full, it is necessary to shake slightly longer :) After the bottle is partially emptied, agitation is much shorter and easier, because the liquid has more free space and mixing of the two components is faster.



Nakon što su se obe komponente dobro izmešale, primetićete nastanak pene u bočici. Tu penu nikako ne treba istiskivati van ili je prosipati, pošto je to reakcija pudera na mućkanje. 
Kad su se obe komponente sjedinile, uzimam blazinicu i nanosim proizvod.

*
After well blended two ingredients, you will notice the formation of foam in the bottle. This foam should not be squeezed out or spilled, because it's powder's reaction to the shaking- it's still part of the tonic and you should use it! :)
When two components are properly mixed, I'm applying tonic on cotton pad, and then on my face.


Tonik koristim dva meseca, povremeno. Prvi utisci su bili dosta zanimljivi, pošto sam očekivala da će nakon što se osuši na licu ostaviti lagano lepljiv film zbog pudera koji sadrži. No, gle' čuda!
Nakon što se osuši, lice je čisto, matirano i baršunasto. Nikako lepljivo.
Tonik sadrži clearderm complex- visoko efektivnu, dermatološki ispitanu formulu koja se uspešno bori s mitiserima, bubuljicama i nepravilnostima.
Ono što sam primetila u toku dvomesečnog korišćenja je da tonik nakon umivanja uspešno ukloni sve moguće ostatke šminke, te vrlo lepo osveži lice. Što se tiče matiranja- tonik sadrži puder čija je glavna uloga apsorpcija sebuma i da, lice je matirano, ali ne duže od dva sata, što je dosta kratko za proizvod koji obećava matiranje.
Duboko čišćenje, redukcija pora i uklanjanje nepravilnosti su tvrdnje koje se u mom slučaju nisu pokazale tačne. Kako je moja koža mešovita (T- zona) imam pore na čelu, oko nosa, te na bradi. Iste sam tretirala puno... pa hajd'mo ih nazvati ''efektivnijim'' proizvodima da bih se u konačnici pomirila s njima i prihvatila ih kao deo sebe :)
Ovaj tonik mi nije uklonio bubuljice koje se pojave u PMS-u, ali je pomogao da proces zaceljenja kože prođe brže. 
Inače, najuspešnija metoda za čišćenje lica u mom slučaju je inhalacija bosiljkom ili eteričnim uljem mente. Lice mi je nakon toga kao svila.

I've been using this tonic for two months now. First impressions were quite interesting since I was expecting that, after it dries on skin, since there is a powder added- leaves slightly sticky film on skin. But I was surprised! Once dry, your skin is clean, matt and velvety. Not sticky at all!
Tonic contains clearderm complex- high effective , dermatologically tested formula that successfully fights with blackheads , pimples and irregularities.
What I noticed during two months of using this product is that face is very well cleansed, also good removal of possible remnants of make up and well refreshed skin. 
As for matting- tonic contains oil-absorbing powder particles and face is, after toning, very well mattified, but no longer than two hours, which is quite short for a product that promises long lasting mattifying effect. 
Deep cleansing , pore reduction and elimination of irregularities are statements which in my case are not proven true. As my skin is mixed/ combination ( T - zone ) I do have pores on the forehead, around the nose and on the chin . I treated those with a lot of  ... let's call them more '' effective '' products, but in the end I learned to live with my friends- pores :)
This tonic did not remove pimples or blackheads that appear during PMS period, but it helped the process of healing the skin last shorter. 
Otherwise, the most successful method for face cleaning in my case is inhalation with the essential oils of basil or mint. That ''treatment'' leaves my skin perfectly silky and clean.


Što se ostalih sastojaka tiče ''thumbs down'' za alkohol i parfem koji su... ne razumem zašto se te dve komponente trpaju u ovakve proizvode, ali dobro. Zbog alkohola izbegavam predeo oko očiju, a na ostalim delovima lica nisam primetila isušivanje ili iritacije tonikom.
Inače, tonik miriše sapunasto, čisto.

*
Considering other ingredients- ''thumbs down'' for alcohol denat. and perfume that are... I actually don't understand why are these two components lumped into products of this usage, but whatever. I'm avoiding the eye area because of the alcohol, but on the rest of the face I haven't noticed drying or irritations by this tonic.
Otherwise, tonic smells soapy, clean.



Na kraju, zaključila bih kako je ovo solidan proizvod. Ne matira na duže vreme, ali prisustvo pudera definitivno neće isušiti kožu ili izazvati neugodan osećaj. Takođe, jako lepo osveži lice i ostavlja kožu mekanom i baršunastom. Cenovno je i više nego pristupačan- za 200 ml treba izdvojiti oko 4€.
Može se pronaći u lokalnim drogerijama.

*
In the end I would conclude this is a solid product. It doesnt't mattify for a long time, but presence of the powder definitely won't dry out the skin or cause discomfort. Also, it refreshes very nicely and leaves the skin soft and velvety. Price is more than affordable- 200 ml is around 4€.
The product can be found in local drug stores.

Da li ste isprobale ovaj tonik i kakvo je vaše mišljenje o tonicima?
Have you tried this product and what is your opinion about tonics and their usage?
