A thing or two about dm-drogerie markt

dm Drogerie Markt

I’m a bit obsessed with dm and have been for a while now.

Here are a few things I like about shopping there and some of their products that I think are worth mentioning:

  1. I really like the fruity shower gels and hand wash gels.

I think you shouldn’t and I wouldn’t personally spend a fortune on body care. I think you should primarily spend your money on your face, then hair, then your body. I like a cheap shower gel. But that’s just me. Since this spring I’ve been obsessed with these shower gels as when the warmth hits, I long for citrusy, tonic body washes that invigorate my morning shower. The ones from dm are super affordable and last long, and I tend to buy a few of them at once and switch between them. I particularly love the ginger and lemon scented shower gel, yum.

  1. Good quality hair brushes, hair combs, dry shampoo, makeup brushes and makeup accessories. I love the hair brushes in particular, as they come in so many types and sizes, with different types of bristles. They also have a Tangle teezer dupe.
  1. Affordable face masks – so far I’ve tried the SkinLite sheet masks and they make me feel pampered. They have different types for different purposes and I always get one when I’m there.
  1. Certain foreign brands that you can only order online.

I don’t know about you but I tend to shy away from online shopping. Not that I’ve never done it before, it’s just that I get annoyed with the delivery service. It always arrives late and two times I’ve had the pleasure of having to go pick up my products from their storehouse as the delivery guy said ”I can’t make it, you have to come pick it up yourself”. Plus there’s the delivery fee.

So I get excited that dm has products like:

Palmers – the face oil in particular, I’ve heard is really great and does wonders to the skin. It’s one of the more affordable face oils out there. They also have body products.

Lavera moisturizing cream – unfortunately right now it’s the only product from the brand, but fingers crossed they might bring more products from the brand. I would love to be able to purchase face products from them.

I got to test out a Lavera body cream – orange scented, and a rose shower gel a couple of months ago and since then I’ve fallen in love with the brand, and started to look more into their products. They also do natural cosmetics.

Several Nivea and Dove products you don’t usually find in the supermarkets, I love… shower gels and body butters, St Moriz self-tanning lotions – different kinds, Bio Oil – which you now can find in supermarkets and pharmacies but it has not always been the case, Le petit Marseillais products.

  1. Travel size products for hair, body, face etc. Anything you want they got it.
  2. Maybelline, L’oreal, Maxfactor, Rimmel test boots. Love love love.

I just wish they had a card membership. 🙂

Sunt usor obsedata de magazinul dm de ceva vreme.

Mai jos sunt enumerate cateva motive, cel putin in my book, pentru care imi face placere sa fac  cumparaturi acolo si cateva produse care merita mentionate:

  1. Gelurile de dus tutti frutti  🙂 si sapunurile lichide de maini.

In principiu consider ca consider ca nu merita sa cheltui o gramada de bani pe ingrijirea corpului. Cred ca prioritare sunt tenul, parul si apoi pielea corpului. Prefer un gel de dus ieftin. That’s just me. Inca din primavera trecuta, cand a inceput sa dea caldura am inceput sa tot adun aceste geluri de dus “fructate”, “citrice”, “tonice” pentru ca erau revigorante, tin mult si bine si au preturi foarte accesibile. Mi-am cumparat mai multe deodata, le foloseam cand unul cand altul, iar preferatul meu a ramas cel cu aroma de lamaie si ghimbir. Delicios.:)

  1. Perii de par, piepteni de par, dry shampoo, pensule de machiaj si accesorii de foarte buna calitate. La periile de par am ramas cu gandul si acum si urmeaza sa mai achizitionez una doua. Au disponibile o gama variata de perii de diferite dimensiuni si tipuri de peri. Exista si acel tip de perie duplicat dupa Tangle Teezer.

 

3. Mastile de fata la preturi accesibile ca cele de la SkinLite. Gama are diferite tipuri de masti pentru toate tipurile de ten si problemele, pentru un mic rasfat facial la sfarsit de saptamana.

4. Unele marci din afara care nu se gasesc decat online.

Nu stiu care e treaba cu voi, dar eu nu ma avant la cumparaturile online prea tare, in mare parte din cauza serviciului de curierat, oricare ar fi el. Intotdeauna se intampla sa intarzie comanda si de doua ori mi s-a intamplat sa trebuiasca sa merg sa imi ridic singura produsele de la depozit, din motivul ca tipul fara maniere domnul cu coletul nu mai ajungea la adresa mea. In plus  e si taxa de transport.

De aceea imi place sa vad ca la dm gasesc produse ca:

Palmers – indeosebi uleiul de fata de la ei, despre care am auzit numai lucruri bune, fiind unul dintre cele mai accesibile uleiuri de fata de pe piata.

Crema hidratanta Lavera, care este singurul produs de la ei disponibil momentan la dm. Sper ca vor aduce si alte produse de la ei, m-ar interesa in special cele pentru ingrijirea tenului. Am avut ocazia sa testez o crema de corp si un gel de dus Lavera, si de atunci m-am documentat si am aflat ca fac si cosmetice naturale, organice, all that. Super.

Cateva produse de la Dove si Nivea care nu se gasesc nicaieri in magazine la noi, geluri de dus si body butter-urile de la I love…, lotiune autobronzanta St. Moriz,  Bio Oilcare daca acum se gaseste in farmacii si magazine pana de curand nu era cazul, gelurile de dus  Le petit Marseillais.

  1. Mini produse, perfecte pentru luat in calatorii.
  1. Maybelline, L’oreal, Maxfactor, Rimmel test boots. Love love love.

 

De ar exista si un card de fidelitate dm

Vichy beauty kit giveaway

Acum doua saptamani am aflat de la Denisa, blogger la Fashion in my eyes printre altele, de oferta de la Vichy – cea cu kitul de mostre gratuit valabil in limita stocului disponibil in farmaciile partenere pana la 31 Octombrie.

 
Sunt 4 chituri diferite in functie de tipul de ten, Aqualia Thermal – pentru hidratare , Idealia – pentru iluminare, Liftactiv – pentru ridurile profunde si Neovadiol pentru tenul matur. Kit-urile contin si cate un voucher in valoare de 20 de lei care poate fi folosit in farmaciile partenere pentru achizitionarea unor produse de la Vichy – lista produselor se afla pe spatele voucherului.

 
Eu am aflat tarziu de aceasta promotie <poate si voi sunteti in aceeasi stuatie?>, dar am reusit sa gasesc un kit Idealia cu mostre pe care inca le folosesc momentan in ritualul meu de ingriire.

 
In kit am gasit o mostra de fond de ten pe care inca nu am apucat sa o folosesc, o mostra de crema pentru ochi Idealia, care deja nu mai exista din ziua 1, si doua mici mici mostre de crema Idealia. Crema e Ok, dar are un miros un pic prea puternic pentru mine, lucru care l-am constatat si in cazul balsamului pentru ochi Aqualia Thermal. This would be the downfall. Despre serumul hidratant de la Aqualia Thermal am auzit numai lucruri bune, ca isi face treaba si hidrateaza tenul iar pretul este unul mai mult decat ok pentru ceea ce ofera. Astept sa il incerc si pe el soon.

 
Desigur, am folosit acel voucher si am achizitionat balsamul pentru zona ochilor din gama Aqualia Thermal pentru ca imi doream de mult o crema pentru zona ochilor. Dupa multe cercetari pe internet – in principiu aplicatia eMAG, <nu stiu daca si voi procedati asa> am ajuns la concluzia ca utilizand voucherul , voi iesi cel mai ieftin, si anume pretul acestui balsam a fost in final 62.20 lei fata de 67.50 lei daca l-as fi achizitionat de la eMAG.
Good job.

Two weeks ago, Denisa from Fashion in my eyes posted about the giveaway from Vichy – a beauty care kit with different samples – moisturizer, eye cream and foundation, available in selected drugstores until the 31st of October.

 
Aqualia Thermal – for deep moisturizing, Idealia – for a luminous skin, Liftactiv – for stubborn wrinkles and Neovadiol for mature skin were the four types of ranges provided in the giveaway. Each kit also comes with a 20 lei voucher to spend on other Vichy beauty care products.

 
I found out later on about this giveaway but it did not stop me and I managed to find my preferred kit, the Idealia one, which I still use to this day.
The day cream does its’ job, but I find it to have a strong scent, which I don’t like in skin care. The same thing I noticed about the eye balm from the Aqualia Thermal range, which I bought using my 20 lei voucher. In regards to the moisturizing serum from the Aqualia Thermal range I heard only great news as it has great reviews and people say it does what it promises, so I’m looking forward to trying that one out.
Using that voucher was convenient as I paid a good price for it, cheaper than eMAG, where I usually get all my products.
Good deal overall.

Probabil. Vom vedea.

Vanilla N52 is my color.

As vrea sa vorbesc despre fond de ten, si anume cel pe care il folosesc momentan, cel de la Bourjois Healthy mix. Chiar ieri mi-a ajuns comanda de la eMAG, doar el. Nuanta N52 o urmaream de ceva vreme pe aplicatie dar era indisponibila pana saptamana trecuta. Ieri am adus-o acasa si azi am folosit-o. Vanilla N52 is my color. Pana acuma foloseam N53, care era un pic prea inchisa dar o intindeam bine peste pielea rosie de pe nas si obraji si ma asiguram ca acopar si piele de pe gat si nu era asa vizibila diferenta. Eu stiu ca fondul de ten nu exista ca sa iti dea culoare pielii, ci ca sa uniformizeze tenul. Culoare adaugi prin blush, pudra, bronzer etc. So now I know I have the right shade.

Imi place textura, nu mi se pare ca se vede deloc pe fata, nu imi ridica puful/firele de par de pe fata si miroase bine. E clasat printre cele mai bune fonduri de ten atunci cand nu ai un buget enorm pentru machiaj si cosmetice. Vezi Lisa Elridge, Pixiwoo.

In perioada asta nu folosesc pensula ca sa il aplic, folosesc degetele si functioneaza perfect.

Probably. We shall see and see we shall.

Vanilla N52 is my color.

Today I want to talk about foundation, that is, the one I’m using at the moment, the Bourjois Healthy mix foundation. It had arrived yesterday and the shade N52 had been discontinued on the eMAG app until last week. Yesterday I brought it home, finally and today I am using it. My precious. Vanilla N52 is my color. I used to use N53 which was a shade darker but I made it work over my red nose and cheeks and going down the neck so you couldn’t notice it. The job of the foundation is to even out the skin, not give you color. For that you have blusher, bronzer, powder. So now I know I have the right shade.

I love the texture, you cannot see it on the face if you buff it well and it layers perfectly. It smells great and it does not not make my hairs visibly stand up. It’s considered among st the best budget foundations out there. See Lisa Elridge, Pixiwoo.

I used to use a foundation brush to put it on but recently I use my fingers and it works perfectly.

1st blog post. That’s it, that’s all.
