something new has reached my mailbox : ) thank you very much, I am happy to try these buggers. I have recently cut my hair to a long bob at COIFFURE WINTER and also changed my haircolor to a granny grey. I will soon show you a more detailed change blogpost. stay tuned for that. and now back to the new products, what did I get?
shampoo with brilliant color protection
conditioner with brilliant color protection
smoothing fluid with brilliant color protection
this is definately something that I can use. changing my hair color really had an affect to the health of my hair. another thing is that I want to keep the color as long as possible and with this brilliant color protection I hope for the best. so, let me try these buggers and tell you what I like or dislike about them.

with royal orchid oil by GUHL. my friend Laura is testing these two products the SHAMPOO and the CONDITIONER and she will tell me what she liked about it and what maybe not – we will see.
I made a little research about the price and I found out that these products they are the cheapest at MÜLLER (6.90 CHF) and most expensive at MANOR and COOP (9.50 CHF)
my questions for LAURA:
how many times a week did you wash your hair?
did you only wash your hair with these products?
what products were you using before?
would you purchase these products?
alright, lets give Laura some time to wash her hair and I will get back to you. stay tuned. X
I went shopping at LUSH and here is what I came home with! I am a HUGE lush fan and always end up buying too many nice things! the solid shampoos are such an amazing product and perfect for travelling. another huge favorite of mine are rose scented products like the awesome limited edition shower gel (I really hope they will continue this line!) and the body conditioner – together they are a dream team and a wise person once said: “NEVER CHANGE A WINNING TEAM.”
#1 ROSE JAM shower gel
#2 RO’S ARGAN body conditioner
#3 SUGAR SCRUB body scrub
#4 SQUEAKY GREEN shampoo
#5 GODIVA shampoo
#6 SEANIK shampoo
so in october 2014 I have told you about the new DOVE hair lines and didnt really describe the products and now I wanna share with you my experiences after using it for a couple of times AND I didnt do this alone – I had help! my gorgeous mom tested the purple YOUTH VITALITY line. first I wanna share with you what DOVE says about the two lines and then I will tell you what we liked about it.
“Dove Oxygen & Moisture with Oxyfusion technology has been specifically selected to add hair volume for fine, flat hair. Oxygen & Moisture shampoo, conditioner and finishing products are pumped with Oxyfusion technology, a new generation of moisture. this system moisturises fine, flat hair, giving you hair volume. breathe life back into your hair with Dove Oxygen & Moisture.”
me: I really liked the OXYGEN line – the shampoo lathers and thats something very important for me 🙂 I hate it when shampoos dont lather. I always use conditioner after washing my hair and I gotta say that I liked the conditioner even better than the shampoo. another very nice thing is the mask which really made a difference to my hair – it made it shinier and healthier looking. the only thing I didnt like was the styling product. I think I will hand this down to a friend that likes to use these kind of styling sprays.
“with age, hair loses essential nutrients and can leave you with dry, brittle hair that is longing for nourishment. at Dove we are dedicated to providing advanced and tailored care for specific hair needs and new Youthful Vitality is a dedicated range of hair care products that helps replenish the nutrients that hair loses with age. Dove Youthful Vitality shampoo, conditioner and finishing products contain nourishing ingredients that give deep replenishment. Your hair will be left more manageable**, revitalised and feeling stronger**. ( *shampoo, conditioner and thickening essence versus flat, limp hair)”mom:
she is a huge fan of the Kiehls shampoos and therefore it was hard to make her stop using the Kiehls for a moment but she did 🙂 and she admits that she also liked the YOUTHFUL collection. she has grey hair and wears a rather short bob hair cut. I asked her if she has a favorite and she told me that she absolutely loves the HAIR BB CREAM.
this is the one product she will for sure continue to re-purchase.
so that is what we have to say about the new DOVE collections and we hope it was helpful incase you were thinking about buying the new products. have a lovely day. x
in-shower is the new thing! I have tested the NIVEA in-shower lotions and milks and I got totally hooked. in winter I am feeling too cold to apply lotion and in summer I m too hot – so when I discovered these products I knew that this was exactly my thing.
so how to use it? first you use your normal showergel or creme or whatever you use to wash your body. once you are clean you can apply the in-shower lotion. make sure not to drop any product as it can be very slippery – so be aware! the in-shower body lotions are like a conditioner. you apply it once the body is clean and then rinse it off and ready you are. my skin is very dry and thats why I like the in-shower body milk (darkblue) the best.
what about you? have you tried them yet?
MATRIX Biolage Volume Bloom and MATRIX Wonder BOOST – lets do something for fine hair! And do you know what, I do got very fine hair.
The Biolage Volume Boost Shampoo and Conditioner contain cotton and no parabens. I used it for the last couple of weeks and I like to switch shampoos that means that I am always having at least 3 products standing in the shower. Like this its easier for me to directly compare the products and effects and also I feel that its better for my hair to have a change every now and then. I previously introduced some other Biolage products, click here >> and I am still using them to this very day!
What can I tell you about these products, other than that they work great for me. They smell amazing, the shampoo lathers and the conditioner makes my hair so smooth and easy to comb.
Let me introduce you to MATRIX Amplify Volume Wonder Boost Root Lifter – another great product for fine hair! How do I use this?
Use on damp hair, direct snozzle applicator close to the scalp or all over, blow dry, set or dry naturally, style as usual. Very simple but very effective! I can compare this product to the Alterna Bamboo Volume 48 hours sustainable volume spray and I can not tell you which one I like more as they both create amazing volume – they will be used up both!

Have you tried these MATRIX products?
I am trying something new – SWISS SMILE! a whitening toothpaste and conditioner that comes with two brushes. This was the starter kit that I have received to try. I started testing on March 3rd 2014 and soon I have been testing SWISS SMILE for one month straight! So you might ask yourself: what the heck is that, SWISS SMILE ? well, its easy, its a whitening toothbrush set made in Switzerland.
the bristles are very dense but soft, one is a bit more dense than the other. I like the brushes and would repurchase them!
Have you ever tried any whitening toothpaste before? I think they all smell the same.. It really makes the teeth whiter but in my case it was also queit harsh to my teethridge. I have very sensitive gums and thats why I think I am not the perfect person for this set. there is another set by the same brand and its called Herbal Style. I will give this one a try and will let you know how I like it!
aaw.. this is my favorite piece out of the set. I use it every night before going to bed and I can really feel and see a difference on my lower teeth. I think I will continue to use this conditioner together with the SWISS SMILE brushes and the herbal style toothpaste!
where to buy SWISS SMILE in Basel?
Globus carries both lines: WHITENING and HERBAL! Give it a try and let me know what you think.
“I AM TRYING OUT SOMETHING NEW..
…something for my colored hair and my dry scalp.”
my friend Amanda, who works at the KIEHLS booth inside MANOR Basel was so nice to set me up with some samples to try. She recommended the KIEHLS SUNFLOWER shampoo and conditioner together with the MAGIC ELIXIR for my dry scalp and colored hair.
so what did I do?
last night before going to bed, I massaged the MAGIC ELIXIR oil into my scalp and gently moved the oil from the roots to the ends. I wrapped a towel around my head and went to bed. This morning my hair looked sooo greasy but it smelled very very good. So I used the SUNFLOWER shampoo and conditioner to wash out the oil. And the result is stunning. My scalp is not dry anymore, no dandruff and my colored hair shines super bright!
would I buy these products?
I would definitely buy the MAGIC ELIXIR OIL and the SUNFLOWER CONDITIONER. The Shampoo I didnt like so much as it leaves a funny feeling on the hair and this only goes away once you have applied conditioner. I feel like the shampoo dries out my hair and I dont like that.
stay tuned for more things that I have tried out!

I m currently using some AESOP HAIR PRODUCTS.
after falling in love with their handcream I thought why not giving their hair products a chance…
I started with the ROSE HAIR & SCALP MOISTURISING MASQUE and let this soak into my scalp and hair for a good half of an hour. Then I wash my hair with the CLASSIC SHAMPOO and as a last step I use the CLASSIC CONDITIONER.
so far I really like the effect on my hair. will keep you posted about their products! xxx aesop.com
