as I am already a fan of the masque creme a la rose noire by sisley I was very excited to see that the soon to be launched product was also containing black rose. I am very happy to be able to test this product before it is available in the stores and I have been using it for the last couple of weeks and I really really love it! I use this precious face oil every other day and night and I think I will even love it more in winter when my skin is dryer. It can be used alone or under the moisturizer day and/or night.
so what makes it so special?
Omega 3 fatty acids, plum oil, camelina oil, phyto squalane from olive oil, funnel alge, vitamine E, avocado extract, black bulgarian rose, magnolia
all these things help to calm, repair and maintain our skin.
hahahaha, well yes, it is really true! never change a winning team, right? thanks to Passion for Brands I can call MIA2 by Clarisonic and Kiehl’sCalendula Deep Cleansing Face Wash my own and I love them both and when used together it’s like having a facial at the salon – every day! sigh! I have very sensitive skin with couperose on my cheeks and that’s why I have to be very delicate to my skin as it is irritated very easily. I use the Clarisonic brush for sensitive skin and a tiny bit of the Face Wash in the shower and it’s just the best way to clean my face in the morning!
my dears I think I have shared everything I can share regarding Kiehls skin care – I hope you liked it. If you havent tried any Kiehls products yet then I can only advise you to check out my holy grail – the Midnight Recovery Concentrate <3 enjoy! xx
something new! my friend Sara is testing the Gel Radieux for I SAW SOMETHING NICE. She has normal skin with dry patches and likes creams that are not too heavy – so the gel texture is perfect for her. I prefere a creamier texture and thats why I started using the Crème Radieuse. so far we both like the Gel and Crème. Its easy to apply and it works great with Foundation and BB Creams. The organic Angelica Seed Extract keeps your skin moisturized for 24 h (Gel) to 48 h (Crème)!
Are you all ready for Spring Summer Season? Are you ready to wear your slingback- and peeptoepumps? Well, I am NOT! And thats why I was very happy to see the ALESSANDRO PEDIX collection and the new TWEEZERMAN SoleMate Tools! In Switzerland they stock them at MANOR, GLOBUS, JELMOLI and AMAVITA but I am sure you can find these products in your country aswell.
My main problems are my dry feet and heels. So the pedix FEET Heel Smoothing Stick is perfect for that! The product claims: “Its the ideal treatment for targeted relief of dry, cracked heels. Active ingredients like Panthenol, Allantoin and Urea immediately care for the skin and protect against new formation callus.” I have started to use this stick every other night and I can already feel a difference the morning after.
What do I do before I apply the stick? I use the newTWEEZERMAN SoleMateTools. It consists of 2 tools: a File and a Smoother. Soak your feet in lukewarm water, then scrub with Tweezerman’s Sole Mate Foot File and Smoother.
Have you heard about the pedix FEET Purifying Energy Pads?
The product claims: “These Purifying Energy Pads for the feet boost foot care, stimulate a feeling of well-being and support a good nights sleep. Place pads on bottom of feet and wear as you sleep. Remove in the morning! The energy pads contain natural acetic acids and tourmaline, which, according to traditional Chinese Medicine, are said to encourage the elimination of metabolic waste products and environmental toxins via our intenral cleansing organs. According to TCM, all organs, muscles and body functions are reflected in the feet of every individual in so-called reflex points.”
The box contains 14 stickers and herbbags for a 7 day treatment. I started 2 days ago and I am really amazed by the effect it has to my feet. When I apply the herbbags at night, they are dry and have a rather light beige color. In the morning when I remove the pads, the herbbag is rather wet and turned almost black. So something is happening over night!
have a look at this reflex zone chart and apply the pads where you think you can need some extra energy!
so far I am very happy with these products and I will continue to use them until my feet look amazingly clean and soft! Soon I will show you the new Alessandro “Très chic” nailpolishes and will feature everything in a “Spring Summer Shoe Special” – stay tuned! xx
this month it will be all about BEAUTY PRODUCT BESTSELLERS previously I have showed you the Bestellers of L’Occitane and The Body Shop , M.A.C and today I will show you 2 of the Estée Lauder Bestseller products.
an alltime favourite of my mom, #1 Advanced Night Repair. She has been using this for at least 6 or more years and I can really see the effect it has to her skin. so when I read that Advanced Night Repair is among the bestselling products of Estée Lauder it really made me curious and I had to try it out myself. let me tell you, this is a magic product that will smoothen and soften your skin while you are asleep – not only smooth and soft it makes you look very fresh! #2 Double Wear foundation – aww.. this is one of my favourite foundations, it stays in place and leaves a nice finish. I apply it either with a foundation brush or with my fingers. the only thing I would change about this product is the design. I really miss a dispenser. the bottle opens with a lid and has no pumpsystem or so – therefore I think its not the easiest foundation for on the way.
something new ladies !!
I am sure you know the original fragrance DKNY be delicious that was launched in 2004. Now they extended their line with this new skin hydrating eau de toilette that you can see in the photo above.
The collection consists of three already known fragrances now in a new skin formula: DKNY Be Delicious Skin Hydrating Eau de Toilette DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom Skin Hydrating Eau de Toilette DKNY Golden Delicious Skin Hydrating Eau de Toilette
aww.. the scent of DKNY Be Delicious Skin Hydrating Eau de Toilette is very fresh and has a touch of green apple with a citric note – perfect for spring. The magic is called “Apple Fusion Complex”, a blend of ingredients that is clinically proven to help moisturizing, smooth and brighten the skin. I really like the re-design of the bottles and the new atomizer spray for all-over body misting. It really makes it easy to spray the product all over the body.
visit your nearest shop and try it out – it might be something nice for you.
have a wonderful day. xx
this month it will be all about BEAUTY PRODUCT BESTSELLERS previously I have showed you the Bestellers of L’Occitane and The Body Shop and today I am going to show you the Bestsellers of M.A.C cosmeticsc.
red lips, I looove red lips, ergo I also love red lipsticks and my favourite red lipstick is one of the Besteller products by M.A.C – #1 “Ruby Woo” lipstick – a wonderful matte red. My third step of my skin routine in the morning is to apply primer, of course not every day but when I ll be out all day or if I have a photoshooting I use the #2Prep & Prime Natural Radiance Base Visage – it makes my skin very even and leaves a perfect base for my foundation. After applying foundation I use concealer around my nose and on the red parts of my cheeks (couperose) – #3Mineralize Concealer is the bestselling concealer by M.A.C and I can only use it around my cheeks and nose as it is too dry for under my eyes. I tried it several times but it always leaves very thin dry lines around my eyes.. and ofcourse I dont like that 🙂 so if you have rather oily skin around your eyes I would totally recommend this concealer. aaaww, the #4Mineralize Rich lipstick in the shade “All Out Gorgeous” is sooo pretty!! I can not get enough of this color. As many of you might know I am a huge fan of bright lips so I totally agree with all the other ladies who make this product a bestseller. Do you use powder foundation? #5Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation will be your favourite, I am sure about that. Personally I prefere to use liquid foundation as I dont like a too matte powdery finish on my dry skin. but I love to use it to set my bright lipsticks. An all time favourite of mine is the #6Mineralize Skinfinish Natural powder. I use it every day to set my foundation.
#1 Eclat & Soin Couleur
Shampoo with 5 Essential Oils
#2 Concentre de Lait AMANDE
Firming and Smoothing Milk Concentrate
#3 Creme Mains Rose Heart
20% Shea Butter protects, moisturizes and absorbs quickly.
#4 Verveine Eau de Toilette
with organic Verbena extract
These are the BESTSELLER products by L’OCCITANE. As I told you in my previous post this month is all about BEAUTY BESTSELLERS. Let me tell you a little bit about these amamzing products.
I have colored hair and I used #1Eclat & Soin Couleur Shampoo for a couple of hairwashes and I really must say its an amazing product. Mostly herbal products do not latter but the Eclat & Soin Couleur smells really good and latters. As some of you may already know I have very dry skin and therefore I m always looking for rich body creams or butters. #2Concentre de lait AMANDE is a perfect cream for dry skin. It smells delicious and it moisturizes and absorbs very fast. I use it allover my body and I can get dressed immediately without feeling greasy or so. Some weeks ago I posted something about handcreams, the post was caled “things I hardly use but I should” there I already featured the #3Creme Mains Rose Heart with 20% Shea Butter. It is a great product that protects, moisturizes and absorbs quickly. see the post about handcremes << http://isawsomethingnice.ch/post/73605959920/thingsthatihardlyeverusebutishouldhandcreams >> last but not least let me tell you about the #4Verveine Eau de Toilette
with organic Verbena extract its a very fresh fragrance and for me it is a bit too much citrc so I prefere to use it in my house instead of my body – I know this must sound weird but I really think it makes an amazing roomspray aswell. 🙂
I have very sensitive skin and couperose parts on my cheeks which make me look very healthy. I was in need of a new cleanser and cream and strolled thru Manor in Basel looking for something new. And then I stopped at the KIEHLS booth and was introduced to their line for sensitive skin. CANTELLA SKIN CALMING FACIAL CLEANSER and CANTELLA RECOVERY SKIN SALVE – because I am always so curious about everything I had to buy them and see what they would do to my skin.
so I went home and tried it and really like the effect it had to my irritated redish skin. and after a couple of weeks I used the last drops of my LANCOME toner and went back to the Manor KIEHLS booth in order to check whether they have a suiting toner for me – and they did – CALENDULA HERBAL EXTRACT TONER alcohol free. Amanda, the lady who works at the KIEHLS booth checked my skin and asked me what kind of peeling/exfoliating I am using, well, because of my cuperose and sensitive skin I was not happy with the peelings I have tried so far because they often gave me a uncomfortable feeling or they made my skin look even more red. Amanda introduced me to the OVER NIGHT BIOLOGICAL PEEL which works without water. so again I went home and tried them for several days and again I was very happy with what I bought. As a thank you present I got 3 sample sizes of ROSA ARCTICA, SUPER MULTI CORRECTIVE CREAM and the SKIN RESCUER STRESS MINIMIZING DAILY HYDRATOR.
my regimen for day and night
I clean my face with the CANTELLA SKIN CALMING FACIAL CLEANSER either with water or with a damp washcloths afterwards I use the CALENDULA HERBAL EXTRACT TONER with a cotton pad and then use the CANTELLA RECOVERY SKIN SALVE or the SKIN RESCUER STRESS MINIMIZING DAILY HYDRATOR – I do that day and night – and every second night I use the OVER NIGHT BIOLOGICAL PEEL.
the products really even out my skin tone and the peeling also reduces the size of my pores – I am super happy with KIEHLS.
what do I want to check next? the MIDNIGHT RECOVERY CONCENTRATE – I only heard good things about it and will give it a try!
