its been a while since I have introduced you to the skinside beauty drink for either day or night and I have continued to drink it. I was very curious when I saw this product at GLOBUS in Basel and was eager to try it. well, what can I say, I still like the drink, its refreshing. I keep them in the fridge – the antiox for the day and the night balance for the night, as the name already implies 🙂 also in my previous post I have found it hard to judge this product. I dont believe that you can become beautiful by drinking these drinks but I feel that my skin is more even now. so it did something from the inside – impressive! thanks Julie for helping me take this photo! xx
its a big thing these days to do your nails like a pro at home. I question that and therefore had to try the Starter Kit by Alessandro. You get a red nailpolish, a clear twin base and top, a file, a cleaning pads and the most important UV/LED lamp. I read the manual and then started to do my left hand leaving out the thumb. After cleaning my nails with the cleansing pad, mmmhhmm, they smell like apricot! I start with the clear Twin and let it dry in the lamp for 60 seconds, then I apply the color and again I let it dry in the lamp for 60 seconds. As the last step I again apply the twin polish and I really make sure to cover the tip of my nails. now on to the right hand, which of course is always a bit harder than the left hand.. the same procedure: twincoat on 4 fingers (leave thumb out) dry for 60 seconds, then apply color, let it dry for 60 seconds and then finish with the twin polish and let it dry for 60 seconds. now I do the exact same thing to my thumbnails. Now all my fingernails are painted and I clean the top with the cleansing pad. It looks so nice and the best thing is: IT IS DRY! Wow! I was really amazed!
The product claims to last up to 10 days and I can tell you it lasts even longer on my nails.. 🙂 I got more colors and tried the product on my friends nails. I will show you all the different colors in another post, stay tuned!
How to remove the nailpolish?
thats a very simple step, you just have to peel it off. I have never had problems to remove the nailpolish but I read that there is a peeloff oil in order to remove the nailpolish.
I have to admit that I really didnt expect such a nice result! It was easy to apply and it last for more than 2 weeks! I can therefore highly recommend this product.
NOTE: some of the nailpolishes tend to pull back, it must sound weird now but if you have tried this and experienced the same you will know what I mean 🙂 so when this happens try to dry each nail after painting for 10 seconds, like this it will not run back and you can continue to paint the rest and then dry all fingers for another 60 seconds.
stay tuned for my Striplac color demonstration! xx
“first of all, the texture is really light and makes the cream easy to apply. the cream absorbs immediately, so I was able to apply my foundation right away, making this cream a perfect base, as my make up lasted longer than before. after applying I noticed a general firming effect, which lasted all day. during long and intense days at work, with occasional stressful moments, I never felt any dryness or lines appear. I never felt greasy, shiny or my make up fading away through sweating. Also the spots I noticed at night sometimes were limited to only one. so far I would say this is the perfect cream for me at the moment.”

“I started to use the cream last sunday morning and I really like the consistency and texture of the cream. the fact that the cream has SPF 20 is amazing because we all know how important it is to protect the skin from the UVA and UVB rays. superdefense SPF 20 is very creamy but not too heavy, super nice and easy to apply and it leaves a very soft base. I think its very important not to use too much cream because it easily makes the skin look too shiny. I had to wait a few minutes before I could apply my foundation in order to let the cream set and dry. I applied my M.A.C face and body foundation (light coverage) and it worked well with the cream. it leaves a dewy finish even after applying my foundation and after setting my foundation with powder. my skin is always behaving cray cray during this one special lady moment of each month and therefore its hard for me to say whether the blemishes are caused by the cream or not. I will for sure continue to use the cream for a week and will then answer the questions we have set in the first blogpost and I will be able to give a better review about the clinique superdefense SPF 20.”
I was at the changemakershop in Basel, Switzerland and discovered this amazing skincare brand called ROBERT AND JOSIANE. I liked their products so much that I wanted to feature them on my blog and therefore I asked them 4 questions about themselves and their brand.
Thank you so much for your time Robert and Josiane!
1. How did Robert & Josiane start their business – whats the background?
We’re a couple that realised in the late nineties, that we wanted to extend our romantic relationship into our daily work. After a few years of looking for the right field we came upon cosmetics. With
Robert as a biologist with his love for nature and his talent to experiment with ingredients, and Josiane as a former teacher with her passion for scents and poetry, we were the perfect match also for our new project. The result is an outstanding line of natural cosmetic products, a source of wellbeing and full of poetry.
2. How do you come up with such great names and packaging?
Each product is inspired by personal experiences and moments of our lives. Our Body Lotion “Die Gärten von Alfabia” (The Gardens of Alfabia) for instance is a remembrance of a stroll in the peaceful gardens of Alfabia on the island of Mallorca. And with “Die Wilde” (Soap Bar) we tried to catch the feeling of standing at the West Coast of British Columbia, where Robert lived during the first years of his childhood.
3. Where do you sell your products?
They can of course be purchased at our Webshop. But also in pharmacies, organic shops and concept stores.
4. What is the newest product or is there something new in the pipeline that you could share?
Our latest product is our facial cream “Tagundnachtgleiche” (“Equinox”), with the wonderful oil from raspberry seeds. The next product to appear will be our winter product “Wunder-bar”, which is a body butter scented with spanish cistus and moroccan cedar. Just perfect for cuddling and for dry skin. As a seasonal product it’s available in winter only.
