GLÜCKLICHE AUSZEIT (happy time out)
it promises relaxation for beautiful moments with help of red poppy and hemp
what a color – OMG – I was first worried that it s gonna stain my bath tub but nope it didnt! a great bath for relaxing, perfect before going to bed.
WALDSPAZIERGANG (forest walk)
it promises to breath deeply and recharge relaxation and this with the help of pine and fir
another one that is perfect before going to bed, it relaxed me completely and I had an amazingly deep sleep. the color of the water is a nice subtle green, and it didnt stain my bath tub, yay!
ENTSPANNUNG PUR (pure relaxation)
it promises to calm one down with help of melissa
with help of the blue water I completely shut down and almost fell asleep in the tub. so also this bugger is perfect before sleeping and also didnt stain my tub.
JUNGBRUNNEN (fountain of youth)
it promises to stimulate the senses and new drive with helo of pomegranate and amaranth oil
so far this is the only one that I would not recommend using before sleeping. its one to start the weekend, perfect for a morning bath. look at the color, it is even brighter than the first one and also didnt stain my tub.
overall I am very very pleased with the KNEIPP® Badekristalle and I will try out more of them. I am a bath tub person and I love my weekend baths. before I was using either LUSH or the DRESDNER essence, read more about them here >> and here >> I found them at MIGROS and MUELLER and they cost between 1.50 CHF and 1.70 CHF) the variety is huge, lets see what I end up next with. stay tuned.

if you have a stressful day and need something to cheer you up I have exactly the right thing for you. treat yourself and experience a scalp massage. I did that a couple of weeks ago at COIFFURE WINTER in Basel and it was awesome. they offer an ayurvedic scalp massage and they have different oils and waters depending on your hair and scalp type.
awww how can I describe it, it is just wonderful! they have great skills and know exactly how to relax their clients. I was asked if I wanted my feet/legs up and if I wanted the chair to massage my back during the ayurvedic scalp massage. and I think thats all I can say, it was awesome and I can only recommend to check it out.
a couple of months ago I changed my hair color and got this really cool bronde/ombre look but after a week of vacation in sicily at the beach my blonde ends were almost breaking off, thats why I had to say goodbye and cut the blonde parts off. now it loks really cool too as it is more of an ombre look now with a much more natural looking gradient. sorry for the washed out photos I took them with the SAMSUNG galaxy alpha phone soon my phone history will be online and there you can read all the pros and cons of the last 3 phones I was using. this photo below shows me right after the massage and as you can see I am very happy and relaxed. : )
another simple outfit that I was wearing last week. I am super happy with my new wool coat that I found on SALE at h&m for 30 CHF instead of 79.90 CHF. what a bargain!
I had a productive and relaxing sunday afternoon – I slept in and then shot an outfit for a next weeks blog post – then I cleaned the apartment, cooked a delicious curry and went for a nice bike ride with my love and finally found time to upload this outfit post besides that I am editing today’s photos and watching my favorite YouTube beauty gurus
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.
SPF 50 yes, I am not kidding. We all have to be careful with our skin! Some of you may say: but then you will not get tanned.. hmm, I will get my tan for sure, also with SPF 50, but I will also make sure that my skin still looks lovely when I am 40+
Lancaster was so nice to let me try these new SUN CONTROL products – thank you so much! so let me introduce the new LANCASTER sun control collection with infrared technology and DNA expert:
#Anti-Wrinkles & Dark Spots Sun Sensitive Skin Radiant Glow Cream SPF50+
#Anti-Ageing & Dark Spots Sun Sensitive Skin Uniform Tan Milk SPF50
#Anti-Wrinkles & Dark Spots Sun Sensitive Skin Radiant Glow Fluid SPF50
this weekend was the first time I have used these products as it finally was sunny again in Basel, Switzerland. On Saturday and Sunday I applied the #Anti-Ageing & Dark Spots Sun Sensitive Skin Uniform Tan Milk SPF50 to my arms and legs. It smells soooo good! Since years I am using the LANCASTER sun products and I m so attached to its smell. when I smell my skin it brings back my summerholiday memories from sunny California or beautiful Barcelona. It just instantly brings me into a happy summermood! my skin is very pale compared to how tanned I am in summer so I am thinking about trying the LANCASTER self tanning products. I will keep you updated about that. 🙂 so now back to the SUN CONTROL products. On Saturday I applied the #Anti-Wrinkles & Dark Spots Sun Sensitive Skin Radiant Glow Cream SPF50+ to my face and neck – the skin absorbs the cream really fast and it leaves a beautiful glow. Yesterday, Saturday I used the #Anti-Wrinkles & Dark Spots Sun Sensitive Skin Radiant Glow Fluid SPF50 allover my face and neck – and this will be my go-to Sun Screen for this Spring/Summer. I love the texture, its light and easy to apply under my foundation or BB Cream. As soon as my face is a bit tanned I dont wear foundation too often. I prefer to wear something lighter like a BB or CC Cream or sometimes I just use a bit of Bronzer and thats it! So I have to say that I am really happy with the results of these products. my favorites are the #Anti-Ageing & Dark Spots Sun Sensitive Skin Uniform Tan Milk SPF50 and #Anti-Wrinkles & Dark Spots Sun Sensitive Skin Radiant Glow Fluid SPF50 – I would definitely repurchase these two products!
tips and tricks!
I prefer to apply the sunscreen (body) before I get dressed, like this I make sure that none of the products gets on my clothes and I am also sure that the Sunscreen got absorbed by my skin before exposed to sunlight. I apply the Sunscreen (face) before my moisturizer. I read an interresting article on howstuffworks (link) and I came to the conclusion that it actually doesnt matter in which order you apply the moisturizer and sunscreen, as long as you use both.
What do you think?
Have you tried the LANCASTER sun Control Products?
