these are my favorite products for summer and I quickly want to introduce each of them.
K CC Crème
I use this for my hair. Before after or during sunbathing or swimming. It helps to protect the hair from UV dammage.
SPORTS transparent gel
I have only started using this sunscreen last week and I gotta admit its the best I have ever tried. It has no perfumes, no mineral oils, no emulsifiers, no preservatives and the best thing: water-resistant! I use it once a day in the morning and it lasts all day. Usually I wear SPF50 but now that I am a bit more tanned I think I am absolutely fine with SPF30.
this is my go to product for the face. I apply it every morning in summer before leaving the house. my skin is very sensitive and I have red parts on my cheeks thats why I need to protect my skin even more.
INSTANT COOLING MIST
this product is amazing. I apply it every evening after spending a day in the sun. Its such a nice feeling to spray this cooling mist and it helps your tan to last.
SUN REFLECTS UV PROTECT SPRAY
I have only tried this for a couple of times and I like what it does. I spray it in the morning before tanning or being in the sun all over my hair. It has the perfect travelsize!
as every year I wanna show you some awesome sun products – today we lay the focus on APRES SOILEIL by LANCASTER and their collection is called TAN MAXIMIZER. the one above is for the face and can be applied directly after tanning. it moisturizes the sunkissed skin and helps to achieve an even nice tan. the one below is for the body and I feel that this one has a bit of a cooling effect, a very light one though. the one below is a really cooling one and so far I have only used the spray on my legs, but I am looking forward to spraying my entire body after a long hot day in the sun with this cooling mist.
and then there is something nice for the whole day – a summer fragrance by LANCASTER and it totally smells like summer holiday – SOLE DI CAPRI. awww, CPARI is on my MUST SEE list..
in case you need more information about the products you can find lots of interesting facts here >>
two brands – one look– and what a simple one! I started to apply the new lightful C tinted cream all over my face and neck and set it with the mineralize skinfinish natural powder. then I applied the bronzing powder to my cheeks, temples and jaw line and filled in my brows with the eyebrow pencil in taupe which I can hardly sharpen anymore as it got so tiny. as a last step I dusted the light CC prep+prime loose powder all over my face to give it a nice and fresh finish!
yay the sun is out! it is almost a shame that I am showing you a black and white look instead of something colorful 🙂
this is a way to wear leggings without showing your butt. I am not a big fan of leggings and short top outfits and therefore I always make sure to wear something long with leggings. so an easy tip would be to grab your friends, boyfriends or brothers shirt and wear it under your shirt or sweater – I looooove this look. ready in 5 minutes 🙂
and it is my new SONY phone aka camera. I have played with the camera for the last couple of days and I still can not decide whether I like this one or the SAMSUNG alpha better. I think it is very hard to tell the difference of the quality, it is just a different handling. the coolest thing about the camera is the timelapse, hahaha, I had so much fun testing this out, and of course I had to take a “baywatch”-like running slow motion video. 🙂 I love love love the color, it reminds me of TIFFANY & CO! for the ones among you that are interested in more info about the phone please read more here «
these two lovely things found their way to me and I have been using them the last couple of weeks. ooh dear, I like them both!
VICHY Capital Soleil BB Creme SPF 50
It has a lovely texture and a rather light coverage. I love BB Creams and I love high SPF protection and here I have found the perfect combo. A BB Cream with SPF 50!
KIEHL’S Micro Blur Skin Perfector
Apply this and you are ready to go, this product immediately blurs all my imperfections into oblivion! I have to say I am very much impressed! I use it after my Creme and Foundation and wow I can really see a before/after effect. I hope to be able to catch this on camera and show you.
aaww.. these products are amazing! they all do their one certain job very perfectly. something against the sun – something for a nice self tan without being exposed to the sun – another nice product that makes you look like you have spent the weekend in the sun with a couple of moves – a CC cream to protect the hair and a super nice soothing cooling aloe gel for the face after a day in the sun!
I am soon packing my bags for my roadtrip to ITALY and for sure I am going to bring these!
ooh let me show you these amazing sunglasses that I have found at C&A in Basel. Each pair costs 7 CHF and thats really a bargain! they have a sticker that says UV 400 which protects your eyes also at the beach and in the mountains. they have so many different glasses and these are my very favorite! I already showed you some outfits for these glasses here:
yes, I was also laughing when I have seen this new product by Kérastase. BB CC everywhere and now also for the hair! As you know how curious I am of course I had to try it and see what it does. And let me tell you, this little bugger smells delicious and can be used on damp or dry hair, before and after sun exposure. its a very light texture that doesnt weigh down my fine hair but leaves a nice shine.
I have not used it that often yet, also because it was raining the last couple of days and it is meant to be used in the sun I will definitely use it in the future and will let you know if I am going to repurchase it or not. stay tuned! xx
be ready for spring & summer and make sure to protect your sensitive eyes from the freaking burning ball of flame we also call sun. I found many nice sunglasses at C&A and will show you my haul! I would call these sunglasses 70s vintage retro that go with everything! stay tuned!

After enjoying the new LANCASTER sun control products I just felt like trying these new self tanners aswell. They come in two different shades #light and #medium – so as I am quiet pale I started with the #light Self Tan Beauty for face and the one for body and face.
#light “a week end in CAPRI” #medium “a week in IBIZA”
I recommend to exfoliate the skin in order to prepare it for the self tanning product. like this you get rid of any excess of dry skin and the tan will last longer and more radiant.
so far I really like the result. I applied it 2 a week and I dont see any streaks. I will continue to use the light Self Tan Beauty and maybe then switch to the medium.
have you tried the new Lancaster Self Tan Beauty products?
