Clinique mineral sunscreen lotion for body - mnenje

Ok, spet smo v tistem letnem času, kjer še tisti, ki niso kozmetični fanatiki pomislijo na sončno kremo.

Opozorilo: prispevek je precej dolg :)

We're back at that time of the year, when everybody starts thinking about sunscreen.
Warning: long post ahead :)
Ona ne uporablja sončne kreme, ampak je ne moti poziranje z embalažo.
She doesn't use sunscreen, but doesn't mind modelling with one.
Zaščita pred soncem je nujen del vsake najbolj osnovne nege, ampak žal, večina ljudi ni vzgojenih v ta koncept. Večina nas je odraščala v prepričanju, da je sončna krema del opreme za morje in ne nekaj, kar bi nanašal na obraz vsak dan.
Sama uporabljam kisline, retinoid, imam zelo bledo polt, rozacejo in sem nagnjena k dermatitisu. Aja, pa tudi občasni mozoljčki so tu, zakaj pa ne. Zaščita pred soncem je zame nujna.

Najprej standardne informacije o Clinique mineralnem zaščitnem losjonu za telo:
Za 125 ml sem odštela okoli 18 EUR. Izdelek sem naročila na spletni strani www.salma.si. Trenutno je cena višja. Embalaža je plastična, bela in rumena - nič posebnega. Nima parfuma, mogoče je samo rahel vonj po sončni kremi, ampak je praktično nezaznaven. Tekstura je, po pričakovanju, tekoč bel losjon. Pred soncem varuje s fizičnimi filtri, titanijem dioksidom in cinkovim oksidom.

Sun protection is a vital part of every skin care routine. Unfortunately, most of us where brought up in the belief that sunscreen is a part of holiday attire, and not something to be put on your face every day.
But for me, sunscreen is vital. I use acids, retinoids, I am really pale, I have rosacea, I can get dermatitis. Oh, and let's throw in some spots, why not.

Firstly, some basic information about the Clinique mineral sunscreen lotion for the body.
For cca. 18 EUR I got 125 ml of product. I was on sale, apparently, so now the price is higher. The packaging is really simple, sturdy plastic. It has no scent, perhaps a faint scent of sunscreen. The texture is, as expected, a runny, white lotion. It offers sun protection via physical blockers, titanium dioxide and zinx oxide.

Takoj po aplikaciji, dodala sem obrvi in malo balzama za ustnice :)
After application. I added some brows and lip balm :)
Glede na to, da so temperature višje, sem opazila, da ne potrebujem vlažilne kreme, ko nanašam ta izdelek. Torej, zjutraj si umijem obraz, nanesem serum (včasih tudi Afrodita tonik v pršilu - lahko prebereš sestavine in ceno na tej povezavi) in potem Clinique mineralni losjon. Za moj tip kože je to več kot dovolj.

I've noticed, that I don't need a moisturizer when using this sunscreen. I usually just wash my face, apply my serum (sometimes I also use the Afrodita hydrating mist - you can read more here), then go straight over with the sunscreen lotion.

Če losjon naneseš v primerni količini in ne je ne besno vtiraš v obraz potem traja kar nekaj časa, da se posuši. Če ne nanesem vlažilne kreme potem okoli 20-30 min, če sem uporabila še vlažilno kremo potem pa traja vse tja do 45-60 min. Losjon da rahel bel odblesk. Tega nisem uspela testirati na mojem obrazu, ker sem tako bleda, da se ne opazi. Finiš je sijoč, tudi ko se večina losjona posuši in vpije.

Z veseljem sporočam, da me ob nanosu nič ne peče. Ducray Melascreen UV SPF 50 je tudi super krema zame, ampak včasih sem imela pekoč občutek okoli oči in nosnic. Tako da lahko mirne duše potrdim, da bi jo velika večina kož lepo prenašala. Če te silikoni motijo ali pa jih ne prenašaš, ta losjon jih ima kar precej, jaz nisem dobila nobenih belih mozoljčkov.

If you apply the proper amount of sunscreen (which you should), then it takes quite a while for the sunscreen to dry down - around 20-30 minutes. I notice a white cast, but that isn't saying much. I'm really pale, but if you have a darker complexion I think it will show. The finish is dewy, even when most of the lotion is absorbed.

I am happy to say, that I didn't experience any irritation with this sunscreen. I really like the Ducray Melascreen UV SPF 50, but sometimes I feel a bit of burning around my eyes and nostrils. I can safely say that this sunscreen shouldn't irritate most skins. This lotion is quite silicone heavy, but I didn't notice any breakouts or irritation.

Nekaj punc mi je sporočilo, da mineralna podlaga Lily Lolo veliko lepše izgleda z mineralno sončno kremo in do neke mere to drži. Zato ker je losjon, se začnem precej hitro spet svetiti in se moram matirati čez dan. Ampak ni bilo opaziti tistega čudnega nabiranja, ki se mi je dogajal, ko sem nanesla mineralno podlago čez kemične filtre. Če te zanimajo fotografije, lahko pogledaš na tej povezavi.

Ok, torej kako se obnese z ličili? Uff...Kot sem že povedala z Lily Lolo pudrom sem bila zadovoljna. Ta losjon ni bil mišljen kot podlaga za makeup. Raje uporabim samo korektor in malo pudra v prahu. Ker če se samo z losjonom (brez vlažilne kreme) svetim, potem VEM, da če bom dala tekočo podlago čez...bo sijoč finiš, če hočem ali ne. Sem preizkusila tudi s tekočimi podlagami in Missha BB kremo. Je OK, ne poudari por ali drobnih gobic, ampak potrebujem matirni puder in lističe za čez dan, ker se začnem hitro svetiti.


Some girls have told me, that the Lily Lolo mineral powder foundation looks better with a mineral based sunscreen and I agree. This lotion is quite moisturizing, so I do need to mattify my face during the day, but I didn't see any of that strange separation and pilling up. If you wanna see what I'm talking about you can check this post HERE.
In term of how it works under makeup....it's hard to say. This was not designed as a makeup base, so most days I just use a bit of concealer and powder. When I did use it with a liquid foundation I got a dewy finish, whether I wanted to or not. Which is fine, but I did need to blot and use mattifying powder. If you want to stay really matte, than I think this won't work for you.


Ja, to je losjon za telo, ki ga uporabljam za obraz. Če vzamem cene, ki so trenutno napisane na www.salma.si:
- mineralni fluid za obraz 30 ml / 23.9 EUR
- mineralni losjon za telo 125 ml / 24.9 EUR
Sama sem dobila ta losjon še ceneje, in sem vedela, da tudi če se mi ne obnese na obrazu, ga bom porabila za telo. Ne bom trdila, da je boljše kupiti sončno kremo za telo, ali pa da naj se vsi maženo s kremami za telo na obrazu. V tem specifičnemu primeru  se mi je zdelo smiselno poskusiti.Sestavine so bile praktično identične, in razmerje med ceno in količino mi je bilo všeč.


And lastly, this is a body lotion that I use on my face. On the website that I ordered this lotion from, the prices were:
- mineral fluid for the face 30 ml /23.9 EUR
- mineral lotion for the body 125 ml /24.9 EUR.
I got the lotion at an even lower price. I knew that even if it didn't work on my face, I could use it on my body. I'm not saying you should always buy a sunscreen for the body and use it on the face. In this case I was willing to give it a try. The ingredients were almost identical and I liked the price/quantity ratio.

5 ur kasneje. Dodala sem korektor, malo pudra v prahu in nekaj na oči.
5 hours later. I added some concealer, powder and a little on the eyes.

Kratek povzetek
BI PRIPOROČALA če imaš:
- občutljivo kožo, ki ne more uporabljati kemičnih filtrov,
- suho, normalno kožo in te ne moti malo sijaja na obrazu,
- suho, dehidrirano kožo.

NE BI PRIPOROČALA če imaš:
- mastno kožo in te res moti da se svetiš,
- te zelo motijo/si občutljiva na silikone,
- imaš temnejšo polt in te skrbi bel odblesk.

Short recap:
WOULD RECOMMEND if you have:
- sensitive skin, that can't use chemical sunscreens.
- dry, normal skin and you don't mind some shine on the face.
- dry, dehydrated skins.

WOULD NOT RECOMMEND if you have:
- oily skin, and you don't like a shiny finish,
- you're really senstive to silicones,
- you have a dark complexion and your worried about having a white cast.


Če ti je uspelo se prebiti do konca, hvala ti in upam da te čaka lepo, varno poletje :)

If you managed to get this far, thank you so much and I wish a lovely, safe summer :)
