glow revival cream
shea butter 5%
comforting cream / light
I have sensitive skin and in winter my rather normal skin tends to become very dry and therefore needs an extra dose of moisture. as you can read from the title I use different creams in winter than I use in summer and if I am not using a cream I am using a dry oil – like the one from LUBEX anti-age or the one from Kiehls – and if that is not the case either I am using a cream mask over night. after cleaning my face with either a cleansing oil or a cleansing balm I apply toner and then my skin is ready for the cream. try to wash your hands before scooping cream out of the container. unfortunately all the creams I use at the moment are not to squeeze and thats really a negative thing when you have sensitive skin. you want to be sure that your cream is free from bacteria or germs. but the advantage of these containers is that you can scoop every last tiny part out and can use the jars for DIY things like making your own candles or creams. the SHISEIDO cream came with a tiny spatula. I use this to apply all the creams and I wash it with very hot water after every use.
if you love almonds you are going to love this moisturising cream by KORRES, a greek brand. (product are made in Greece)
if your skin has lost the glow you had during summer then you are going to love the glow revival cream by SHISEIDO, a japanese brand. (but the product is made in France)
if your skin is very dry and needs more comfort then you are going to love this comforting cream by L’Occitane, a french brand. (product made in France)
today I have something nice for our skin. I wanna talk about the LUBEX anti-age DAY RICH UV20 and NIGHT RICH. now that the hot days of summer are over it is time to change not only our wardrobe but also our skin care. we start using the heaters at home and inside the shops, public transport and I can already see how dry my skin is. so thats when I heard about the RICH line from LUBEX anti age. there is a light, classic and rich line and as you may know I already introduced some really nice products by them, have a look here >>
in genreal Lubex anti-age products contain:
no preservatives (air- and light-tight packages ensure long durability and good hygiene),
no artificial colouring and
no allergenic perfumes. thats awesome in so many ways!
the RICH line is for dry to very dry skin and/or mature skin. well I never know what to believe when it comes to anti age or mature skin products. I am 32 years old and I can obviously see a difference in my skin from when I was 16. I have dry skin so often extra moisturize comes with the anti-age products, like in that case here. but now wait, if you think RICH means greasy than you totally misunderstood me, the creams are nicely smooth and are being absorbed fast.
LUBEX anti-age DAY RICH UV20
rich texture 50ml 20 SPF uva+uvb
stem cells + HAF
multi active AntiOx
there are apple stem cells to keep our skin healthy and young and soy isoflavone liposomes to increase the elasticity and improve the structure of our skin. peptides and coenzyme Q10 are leading to a long-lasting lifting effect. HAF, hyaluronates and ceramides hydrate very intensively and make our skin more resistant. multi-active AntiOx system HDBM, protect actively during 24 hours against free radicals.
LUBEX anti-age NIGHT RICH
rich texture 50ml
Isoflavonen – Liposomen
multi active AntiOx
both of the creams are having a very high content of moisturizing factors and high content of lipids. a high-dose retinol regenerates our skin and repairs skin damages. there are also soy isoflavone liposomes, like in the RICH DAY, that increase the elasticity and improve the structure of our skin and peptides and coenzyme Q10 that lead to a long-lasting lifting effect. HAF, hyaluronates and ceramides hydrate very intensively and make our skin more resistant.
some of the ingredients come up in almost every of their products and these are: peptides, they are very important messengers to block the skin and they play a huge role in wound healing. even the normal daily skin regeneration process has to deal with small tissue damage that must be repaired and balanced. over time this ability declines more and more and the aging process of the skin begins. poly-, penta- and hexapeptides specifically activate biological restructuring processes in the skin and therefore age-related skin damage is being repaired – the skin becomes more resilient and toned. tripeptides significantly increase collagen synthesis and actively promote the matrix structure of the skin. it fills wrinkles from the inside. : )
and now for something completely different, finally I wanted to share with you my pictures and videos from the PINK RIBBON CHARITY WALK in zurich BUT I can not find the folder.. hopefully it is in on the backUp that I have on my other HD, I will check and share them when I find them. I took an amazing video where you saw so many pink dressed people run for a good purpose. fingers crossed that I find them. the only thing I can link you to is the tweet I posted – click here. I ran/walked with team LUBEX anti-age and we had a blast! thank you very much for having me. X
YAY – I got a new bodymilk and handcream by NEUTROGENA. visibly renew it is called and I love bodycream with dispensers because I feel it is a lot easier to apply. I have used the bodymilk every morning after showering instead of my DOVE body lotion for the last two weeks and I gotta say they are equally nice and I could not tell which one I like better or not. also with regard to price they are both about the same. the bodymilk and the handcram contain collagen and stimulating minerals and it is made for dry to very dry skin. check √ I have super dry skin especially in winter and even though my calendar says april second it still is very cold and windy outside. I guess I was a bit too optimistic when I have put all my winter clothes away two weeks ago 🙂 time for layering spring and summer clothes I really need some color and hopefully the sun will be out soon.
this mornig I was at the hospital because I woke up with a very swollen left eye. now several hours later I am back at home and I good good news it is nothing bad: I have an inflamed sebaceous gland and I am now using eydrops and eyecream for the next 10 days that also means no eyemakeup for the next days 🙁 and that really sucks as I got some really cool products for the blog to use and play around with.. an awesome new blue eyeliner by SISLEY and the Cinderella maccosmetics collection and and and – this has got to wait for my eye to heal <3
unfortunately I have not tried the handcream yet as I am still using my L’Occitane and I am sure that I will be using that for quiet some time in the future as I have a giant tube. so I will try to give it to one of my dear readers – so incase you read that and you are interested please leave me either a comment or leave me a message.
bodymilk 400ml/11.90 CHF
handcream 75ml/ 10.90 CHF
