is the perfect beauty booster for weakened skin. it’s ultra-concentrated formula enriched with mimosa tenuiflora extract, a mayan medicinal plant known for thousands of years for its repairing properties:
• optimizes skin strength
• minimizes the appearance of redness
the skin forms a physical protective barrier. external aggressions (UV, cold temperatures, hard water, etc.) weaken this barrier. the skin becomes finer, more permeable and fragile. feelings of discomfort, rough skin, redness… the skin is weakened.
when I heard the part about minimizing the appearance of redness I knew that I had to try this product and was eagerly waiting for the parcel to arrive. and it did arrive and ever since I am using it day and night and all I need to do is mix a few drops of repair booster with my regular face cream. my skin feels very soft and relaxed after applying cream and booster and I hope to see an improvement on the long run. now I have to wait, apply and see.
known as the “skin tree” of the mayas, mimosa tenuiflora, or “tepezcohuite”, is a shrub found in central america, in mexico, in the state of chiapas, on a narrow strip of land located at an altitude of 800 – 1000 m. according to indian tradition, the powder obtained from the bark has magical properties and helps to heal wounds. the mexican earthquake of 1985 and the shortage of medicines that followed, brought this special tree’s therapeutic benefits back into the spotlight and it is now officially recognized as part of the country’s national heritage. thanks to its healing properties, mimosa tenuiflora has demonstrated an exceptional capacity to restore damaged epidermis. in cosmetics, the bark extract is used for its antibacterial, soothing and regenerating actions
so there are three new BOOSTERS on the market, an orange energy booster, the blue repair booster that I am using and a green detox booster. lets see what the other two do:
fatigued skin. its highly concentrated formula enriched with ginseng
extract, a legendary chinese medicinal plant known
for thousands of years for its stimulating properties:
• tones and
re – energizes
congested skin. its ultra-concentrated formula enriched with green

I have put all my favorite products in collages!
today I wanna share some nice fragrances that I am very tempted to buy. they are not the newest – so I am sure many of you already knwo these perfumes. as I cant afford to buy all of them I am trying to find out which one I like best and I still dont know – as they all smell amazing. maybe you can help!
#1 BULGARI Omnia Indian Garnet
#2 NARCISO by NARCISO RODRIGUEZ
#3 BALENCIAGA Florabotanica
#4 PRADA Infusion d’Iris
#5 CLARINS Eau des Jardins
the Omnia Indian Garnet is a rather spicy warm fragrance and I could see myself wearing this for a casual day. the Narciso is a powdery sweet scent for a special night out. the Florabotanica is floral and herbal at the same time and this makes it a great everyday fragrance. the Infusion d’Iris is a perfume for everyday a super simple but herbal scent that I absolutely love. and last but not least the Eau des Jardins a body splash that I could carry in my bag and fresh up during a long day. any suggestions? which one would you recommend?
thats the name of the Clarins Fall Makeup Collection 2014 and the main focus on this collection is the OMBRE MATTE eyeshadows trend. they launched 6 new colors, an ECLAT MINUTE base fixante for the eyes, the SOURCIL PRO KIT, the 3 DOT LINER in brown, a new OMBRE MINERALE quad palette, four new ROUGE ECLAT lipstick shades and the BLUSH PRODIGE 07 in tawny pink.
beautiful colors, awesome consistency and very easy to apply. especially the 3 dot eyeliner makes it very easy to draw a nice subtle line above the lashes. the piece that I have used the most so far is the lipstick but thats no surprise to me as I go thru lipsticks super fast because I wear lipstick almost every day 🙂 thank you CLARINS at MANOR Basel for this chic makeup bag – totally love it and I am a bit tempted to wear it as a clutch.
in the picture above you can not only see the new products from the LADYLIKE collection but also the CLARINS BB cream and bronzer as I was wearing a full face CLARINS makeup look today.

caresse 01 fashionista pink lipstick
superliner perfect slim intense black
brow artist plumper medium/dark
a simple bronzing look with almost nude lips and a thin black eyeliner line and a touch of blush on the apples of the cheeks. I wear the light perfecting base by Clarins as a base and eyeshadow. this look took me about 10 minutes and I am sure I could have done it faster – but who likes to stress when applying makeup – NOT me!
we all fight against gravity 🙂 some more and some less! and I am therefore very happy to have discovered the amazing product by CLARINS called Gel Buste Super Lift! I have been using it for the last couple of weeks and I really feel a difference. wow! I will definitely continue to use it. it is a very nice light gel that absorbs very quickly. I use it once a day – thats it 🙂

what do I think about BB? Blemish and Balm.. well, in summer they come in handy as I am not a friend of too heavy coverage foundation. lets start from top to bottom!
#Estée Lauder BB Double Wear All-Day Glow SPF 30
#Marionnaud BB 6in1 Perfecting Care (no SPF)
#The Body Shop All-in-One BB Cream (no SPF)
#Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream SPF 25
#Estee Lauder BB Clear Difference SPF 35
so which is my favorite and why?
my very favorite BB Cream is the #Estée Lauder BB Double Wear All-Day Glow SPF 30 – as it has enough coverage and SPF and it doesnt have a matte finish. Its a rather new product, so I am sure some of you have not seen or tried it yet. well, do not hesitate, give it a try!
which is your favorite BB Cream?
well, well, I do buy a lot of hand creams but infact I hardly ever use them and then I complain that my hands are not soft enough – pfff!
thats about to not happen anymore as I really try to carry one of these hand creams above in every single bag that I take with me in order to use more hand cream!
these are my so far favourite hand creams
jeunesse des mains
fleur d’or acacia
magic touch cherry blossom & rice milk
THE BODY SHOP
which hand cream are you obsessed with?

CLARINS BB CREAM
skin perfectioning cream
are you using a BB Cream? I am a huge fan of the face & body foundation by M.A.C. and every know and then I am in the mood for a little bit more coverage but not too much – these are the days where I grab my CLARINS BB Cream. I have been using it for quiet a while now and I really like the effect it has to my couperose parts of my cheeks.
please leave a comment about your favourite BB Cream – thanks! xx
Hmm, I must say I really love the Clarins BB Skin Perfekting Cream!
I have been using it for the last couple days and I really start to like it better everyday!
For me its really one easy step for natural-looking flawless coverage. The Clarins Skin Perfecting BB Cream is super easy to apply I achieved the best result with my fingers but maybe I just havent found the right brush for this cream. So anyway the texture is really smooth and leaves a very nice soft film on your skin. The BB Skin Perfecting Cream by Clarins is a real time-saver in the morning because it not only evens out your skintone it also protects your skin with the carefully selected plant-based ingredients with SPF 25.
so, what does BB stand for?
BB stands for “blemish and balm” and was first developed by German dermatlogists for women who had undergone cosmetic surgery and it was later further developed in Korea. It was recommended to soothe the skin and reduce the appereance of redness as a result of cosmetic surgery. It quickly became “THE” beauty secret behind flawless-looking skin in Asia. BB Cream is now found in a “western” version, part make-up and part skin care.
Have you tried a BB Cream before, please let me know which one and why you like it. please leave a comment or ASK or say something on my FB page – cant wait to hear what you have to say about BB Creams! xxx
thats the question!
I am using the CLARINS BB CREAM since yesterday and really like it so far. the smell of the cream is soooo good that I could almost eat it 😉 texture is really super soft and the coverage of the BB CREAM is okay.
I will do a special about BB CREAMS soon and will keep you updated about the CLARINS BB CREAM. But first I want to use it for some days. stay tuned! xx
