this could be a nice present for you or friends who love floral scents as the name implies its about cherries but not only – have a look at the different ingredients in the different notes of the fragrance.
nuances of lemon tingle together with black currant and watermelon. heart notes
easy and carefree, the cherry blossoms combined with the notes of violet and rose. base notes
the fragrance has a subtle musk wood touch.
its available at all the L’OCCITANE shops in february so it will be perfect for the people that celebrate valentines day <3
I am really looking forward to January 2015 as there will be new products by L’OCCITANE. I am super happy to be able to try these buggers now and I will let you know what I think about them as soon as I have used them. As I love cleansing oils I am looking very much forward to cleansing my face with the new Huile Demaquilante and pamper it afterwards with the lovely Crème Confort Légère.
“when Olivier Baussan first learned of the unique properties of shea butter he found himself at an airport in Africa. very impressed by the history of this sacred tree whose nuts are harvested mostly by women, he gave up his first order for shea butter a few weeks later.
at that time – about thirty years ago -the shea butter was sold only in local markets . since then, it has changed the lives of women in Burkina Faso. the solidarity partnership began with ten to twenty women- today over 15,000 women work in that sector.
for L’Occitane Shea Butter has become a care component with cult status. it has paved the way to economic independence for the women of Burkina Faso. the international success is shared with the co-operatives in a sustainable and equitable partnership that makes the regional production of shea butter with the highest biological quality possible.
in 2013 L’ Occitane was the key player in the development of the market for fair trade shea butter with his record order of 660 tons of shea butter. the United Nations Development Programme (programme des nations unies pour le développement / UNDP ) awarded L’Occitane due to his involvement in Burkina Faso as an exemplary company.”

purple – burgundy – bordeaux – oxblood – raspberry – cherry to only name a few of the lovely colors for autumn. I went thru my collection of beauty products and found quiet a lot of nice fall colors, 15 to be precise. let me list them below. for me the two most important things about wearing darker lipsticks are to have a very even nice skin and exfoliated lips!
m.a.c HEROINE lipstick
m.a.c WHAT JOY (limited edition) lipstick
m.a.c REBEL lipstick
opi IN THE CABLE CAR POOL LANE nailpolish
m.a.c DARK DIVERSION fluidline
striplac DARK VIOLET nailpolish
alessandro LOVE AFFAIRE nailpolish
malva LAS VEGAS nailpolish
in fall I also love to wear darker tones on my nails and I am so happy with the STRIPLAC dark violet – the OPI in the cable car pool lane – MALVA las vegas and ALESSANDRO love affaire. when I look at my beauty stuff I can see a lot of different bronzing poswers and a huge variety of lipsticks. well no surprise to me – as these are my two favorite parts to apply makeup: cheeks and lips!
I am really trying to stick to summer but hey I live in switzerland and fall has already hit us! anyway I have found a nice way to keep summer in my life by using these awesome producst for my hair! not only the products scream summer but also the scents. all of these products have to be applied to wet hair and make big, full, wavy, voluminous hair.
I have already showed you the TOTALLY BAKED product a couple weeks ago – for the folks who have not read this yet can read it here » it has such a lovely sweet lemon tarte scent – mmhhmm! another favorite of mine is the L’Oreal Professionnel DUAL STYLERS by tecni.ART BOUNCY & TENDER – a cream and gel duo for defined and soft curls. such a funny tube as it has two tubes in one. the outer one holds the gel and the inner one holds the cream. I am in love with the scent – I really wanna rub this thing all over my body 🙂 because of its good scent. last but not least my newest product is the ROLLAND OWAY FLUX POTION – soft-hold sculpting fluid with biodynamic marrubium, organic black quinoa, aamla and ethically-produced marula. it is fragrance free and paraben free but still it has a very fresh lemony scent. it gives my hair a nice grip and I feel it is a lot easier to blowdry with a round bristle brush.
next to my products you can see a tiny bit of my beautyiful bowl by mebel – you can use it for fruits, vegies, salad or I dunno what else 🙂 at the very moment I use it for fruits. in case you wanna have a closer look at it check here »
last week I was invited to the press conference of Estée Lauder in Basel at the Radisson Blu Hotel. as every time the ladies from Estée Lauder prepare a lovely room and inform us about the latest news and what has happened during the year. thank you very much for inviting me! there are many new products and honestly I have no idea where to start 🙂 so I will just quickly name the products from left to right and will get back to you later with individual reviews and first impressions about each product. I left out the new PURE COLOR VELVET nailpolishes and will show them to you in a separate blogpost!
today I am wearing the new ENLIGHTEN cream, the new EE Cream and the PURE COLOR ENVY lipstick in the shade 260 eccentric and I am very happy. the EE cream leaves a nice dewy finish and makes me look about 5 years younger 😉 I will upload some photos to my instagram later. have a look! xx
I did it and I am 100% convinced and ready to do it again! I am talking about the Kerasilk Keratin Treatment and it took some time but it was totally worth it. how did it work?
step 1: hairwash with the purifying KS shampoo step 2: blowdry hair 80% step 3: Kerasilk Keratin treatment step 4: blowdry 100% step 5: iron 200° C with flattening iron step 6: hairwash with the ultra rich keratin care step 7: KS serum step 8: blowdry 100% and styling
my hair feels amazing, almost like silk. the kerasilk keratin treatment made my hair stronger, more relaxed and less frizzy. It lasts up to 5 months and is not cheap! (250/350/450CHF) there are also products for after the treatment and I got the KS ultra rich keratin care shampoo, KS ultra rich keratin daily intense mask, KS ultra rich keratin care deep smoothing mask – and these products are mindblowing! I stopped using all my other shampoos and am absolutely enjoying the smell and result of these new buggers. thank you Stefanie and team, you changed my hairworld! she is actually working with the ROLLAND products but for the Kerasilk Keratin treatment she made an exception. I am a huge fan of the ROLLAND philosophy with their sustainable glass containers and refill strategies and not only that the products look amazing in the bathroom!
something new! Calvin Klein will launch its newest fragrance called REVEAL in September 2014, September, 15, 2014, to be precise. Solar Oriental is a new category and it combines the menly freshness with the warm curves of a lady. I absolutely love it. It is the perfect combination of sweet, fresh and floral.
top notes: salt, pink pepper, black pepper, white pepper heart notes: orris (iris), gray amber, solar-chord base notes: sandalwood, Cashmeran, vetiver
I have been wearing this fragrance for the last couple of days and I am surprised that I can still smell the fragrance during the day. where as usually I can not smell my fragrance after a couple of hours because my nose already got used to it. If you have the chance go and check it out in September, I am sure you will love it as it combines so many different scents! let me know what you think once you have tried it, I am always curious what other people think 🙂
I was at the pressconference of SHISEIDO in Zurich in June 2014 and I got a lot of information regarding the newest product: ULTIMUNE that will be launched in fall 2014! so what I learned is that the power of the skin lies in the skins immunity and that it is being dammaged by environmental threats and stress and emotional stress. I have been using SHISEIDO ULTIMUNE for the last thee weeks and I really like it.I will continue to use it and will get back to you and will tell you more.
The designer of the bottle is called TAISUKE KIKUCHI and he created a very minimaliste line of beauty. I love his drawings!
“A skincare product with infinite properties

I just got out of the hot tub – soaking with HONEY BEE – a mix of honey, aloe vera and rhassoul. mmhhmm.. the smell of it is delicous. but I gotta warn you – it stained my tub and I had a moment to remove the yellow residues. but I think it was totally worth it. these four products where on my LUSH #wishlist but luckily my LUSH dreams already came true. thanks so much! as soon as I have tried the other products I will get back to you. Which is your favorite LUSH product?
