Od njega očekivala sam svašta, a sada kad sam ga probala nekako nije ispunio sva moja očekivanja. Doduše kada razmislim od ovog proizvoda ne bi trebalo previše da se očekuje. Ovo je ipak kao i bilo koja termalna voda samo ima i dodatak nekih ulja.
Pakovanje je prelepo, stakleno sa pumpicom. Šteta je to što da biste raspršili ovaj eliksir preko celig lica treba vam nekoliko pritisaka na pumpicu, tako da se prilično brzo troši. Namenjen je svim tipovima kože i na bazi je grejpfruta, ruzmarina, ruže i cveta pomorandže. Miris je meni lično lep ali je takav da se mnogima verovatno neće svideti. Takođe je i prilično jak, no kada se eliksir upije, što je prilično brzo, miris nestaje. Ne sadrži paraben i fenoksietanol.
Everyone probably already knows how praised this product is. I bought it at the cosmetics fair. Until then I hadn't seen its cost so I didn't know it at the time I bought it. I paid 1500 dinars for it. I bought a small bottle of 30ml. After that I went to the pharmacy to see regular price and I saw that it is 1371 dinars. So not only that I haven't saved any money, I even paid more for it...
I expected a lot from it, but now that I tried it, it didn't meet my expectations. However when I think about it now you shouldn't expect too much from it anyway. This is still just like any thermal water with addition of some oils.
Packaging is beautiful, made of glass with a sprayer. It is a pity that you need to press the pump a few times to cover your whole face, since the bottle won't last long. It is designed for all skin types, and based on the grapefruit, rosemary, rose and orange blossom. The scent is nice to me personally, but many people probably won't like it. It is also quite strong, but when elixir is absorbed, which is pretty fast, the smell disappears. It doesn't contain parabens and phenoxyethanol.
Moram da napomenem ovde da su mi bubuljice koje mi izlaze zbog hormona u toku ciklusa po čelu izašle mnogo gore nego inače od kada ga koristim. Da budem iskrena sumnjam da je ovaj proizvod zaista kriv za ovo, jer sigurno ne sužava pore dovoljno da bude realni krivac. Možda mi je bio samo takav mesec. No moje je da napomenem. Kada su mi prošle bubuljice od ciklusa, eliksir nije izazivao nikakve nove probleme.
Sve u svemu vidim da ovaj eliksir lepo hidrira moju kožu i da joj koristi, no što se izgleda kože tiče razlika nije drastična. Na kraju krajeva ovo je ipak samo voda obogaćena koječim. :) Eliksir mi se svideo, no sumnjam da ću ga nešto mnogo kupovati, jer nije jeftin a nije ni čudotvoran, barem kod mene.
Šta mi se svidelo:
- nakon nanošenja koža izleda svežije,
- na dodir koža je zaglađena i elastična.
Šta mi se nije svidelo:
- brzo se troši,
- pore ne izgledaju sužene,
- miris je prilično jak i mnogima se neće svideti,
- ako ga nanosim posle umivanja Sephora četkom pecka me.

UKUPNA OCENA: 4/5
I've always applied it after washing my face. I wash my face with Sephora brush which performes gentle exfoliation and in this situation this elixir causes a tingling sensation. The feeling on the skin is cooling and tingling. I tried to apply it during the day when my face is not freshly "brushed" and there was no tingling sensation. It is quickly absorbed and the skin looks nicer. Under my fingers the skin was smooth, but even though they say this elixir tightens pores, except under my fingers they didn't look any smaller.
I have to mention here that my pimple outburst because of hormones during the cycle were much worse than usual on my forehead since I started using this elixir. To be honest I doubt that this product is the one to blame, because it certainly doesn't tighten pores sufficiently to be the one to blame for this. Maybe it was just a bad month. But I still have to mention this. When my pimples from that cycle disappeared, the elixir didn't cause any new problems.
All in all, I noticed that this beautiful elixir moisturizes my skin and that it is good for me, but I didn't see any drastic difference in my skin. At the end this is still just a water enriched with all kinds of stuff. :) I liked it, but I doubt that I will buy it often, because it isn't cheap and it isn't miraculous, at least for me.
What I liked:
- After applying it the skin looks refreshed,
- The skin is smooth and elastic under the fingers.
What I didn't like:
- Is quickly spent,
- Pores don't seem narrower,
- The smell is pretty strong, and many won't like it,
- If you apply it after washing your face with Sephora brush it causes little burning and tingling sensation.
