I am sure some of you might wonder why this post is in the lifestyle category. so let’s consider having a nice and soft skin as a lifestyle. I do and I wish you would agree. : ) body scrubs, exfoliators or peelings are basically the same, there are just different names used. try to use one where there are no plastic balls involved because it is not good for the planet and also not good for your skin.
M.ASAM has amazing body scrubs and I have tested some and I gotta to say: I found a favorite among them. my favorite one is called BROWN SUGAR. unfortunately I could not find it anymore on their online shop, but they have a very similar one that you can check here >> another one I have tried by M.ASAM is called 2015 and is a very nice slightly powdery fragranced scrub. the last one I have tried by them is called DREAM OF ROSES and I was only able to find the body cream – check here >> the cool thing about M.ASAM is that they sell scrubs and creams from the same fragrance and line. after the peeling I love using the same fragranced cream.
at M.ASAM you can customize the stick on label by adding text to the two bottom lines. also there are options to choose different background images. check the example here >> this makes it a very great CHRISTMAS present!
in the image above you can see a blue scrub (top) thats the one by CLINIQUE and I have used that one in summer a lot, it is a cool and fresh body scrub called SPARKLE SKIN BODY EXFOLIATOR this product is great for men and women as it has no fragrance. the other two are by M.ASAM. the middle one is DREAM OF ROSES and the bottom one is BROWN SUGAR. unforutnately I used up the 2015 body scrub already during summer but you can see the packaging in the photo below. for sure I will be talking about it in my next EMPTIES video on youtube.
how often and what for?
I use a body scrub every other day. in summer I like a cooling fresh one and in winter I like a nice warm scented one. in spring I use body scrubs before fake tanning but in general I think it is great to remove the old dead pieces of skin. after showering with a body scrub my skin feels amazingly soft and smooth. especially my ellbow, knees and heels like an extra scrub. body scrubs are great for men and women and I am sure that you will find something nice for you.

at stücki basel, switzerland at Douglas and L’Occitane
“my newest skin and body product”
I was at Douglas to buy new foundation. my M.A.C. mineralize foundation is empty and I wanted to try something new. It’s not that I don’t like the mineralize foundation – I might even repurchase it in addition to what I bought today at Douglas. Anyway – there is a very nice girl working at Douglas Stücki – she did such a great job finding the right foundation and shade for my skin. thanks again <3 (I hope you read this) she did my makeup and used the LANCOME teint Miracle foundation – it has a soft finish and gives me enough coverage for my red skin parts on my cheeks. And also the smell of the product is very very nice. It has a very light scented note almost like a fresh parfume and has SPF 15.
That very day I got many compliments about my makeup so I left it on for the photoshoot in the afternoon >> photos will follow soon >> and there is a sneakpeek on my INSTAGRAM
I am a big fan of L’OCCITANE – their products have a fair trade background and they support amazing sustainable projects. I already introduced the soap for the womensday they had this february.

So I could not resist to buy the ULTRA RICH BODY SCRUB to exfoliate my skin. I wish I could show you the smell – its so goooood! I also needed a handcreme and was amazed by this very light gel-textured LAVENDE CREME MAINS. I am not a fan of greasy creamy handcremes for on the go.. for a treatment during the night I would of course recommend a richer creamier hand creme.
so that was my morning at Stücki Shopping Center Basel. I hope u enjoyed my little shopping haul. let me know what kind of foundation handcremes and body scrubs you are a fan of. hashtag #isawsomethingnice or leave me a comment below. xx
