yes! the time has come – I am getting ready for spring and summer! and this year I have found some nice little helpers for my skin. in summer my skin is more exposed to sunlight and I am wearing nice short dresses and I wanna be sure to have a very nice, soft and even skin without any redness, stretchmarks or dents! so therefore I am drinking a lot of tea and water to get rid off any toxines and waste! that is step one and very crucial for a healthy diet and a fit body! I am a vegetarian since I was a baby and never liked meat so I already eat a lot of veggies. lately I have tried to eat a seasonal diet and I gotta tell you that is NOT easy for a person living in switzerland and craving AVOCADOS – ORANGES and LEMONS : ) so every now and then I had to make an exception and bought some delicious avocados, lemons and oranges. I try to mix vegetables, carbs and proteins. my favorite dish is rice with beans and different vegetables – I could eat that every day! a well-balanced diet is step two to a healthy body! mmhhmm. I think it is time to show you some of my lovely dishes that I am cooking all the time. stay tuned. now back to the healthy lifestyle. drinking enough and eating a well-balanced diet are key to a nice and fit body. the industry is showing us so many different things to stay in shape and one could spend hundreds of franks on different products. and thats why I wanna show you these 3 awesome products that I have found at MIGROS!
I started using them last week: the ZOÉ slim-it! for my tighs, belly and arms and the ZOÉ push-up! for my decollete. it takes at least four to six weeks to see any results. so I will keep on applying these lovely buggers and will get back to you with my results. have a lovely tuesday and I hope it was not too bad to get back to work – well at least the sun is out. : ) I have moved my computer so I can sit in the sun – have a look at my instagram photos here >>
Lubex anti – age hydration oil – developed by leading swiss dermatologists and tested and produced in therwil, switzerland in fact just a couple of kilometers away from my home. so why am I showing you this? first of all because it is something for sensitive skin – something I am dealing with and secondly because I wanted to test this product.
the anti-age hydration oil consists mainly of three oils: KAHAI oil (tightens the skin and reduces wrinkles) – BRAZIL NUT oil (nourishes, hydrates, and smoothes the skin) and BLACK ORCHID extract (contains flavonoids, antioxidant protection against free radicals, soothes and regenerates the skin effectively).
I started to use this product eleven days ago. how to apply you ask? well, its super easy, the product has a lovely dropping glass and I use about 3 drops for my face, neck and décolleté. so lets get started, I wash my face and keep my skin damp then I warm the drops in my palms and apply the warm oil with very light pressure. it depends on how dry your skin is as this product can be worn alone or under your daily/nightly skin care. I used the oil only at night and for me the oil was enough and I didnt had the urge to apply any other cream. I can directly compare the oil with my beloved Kiehl’s midnight recovery concentrate that I love so so much and I gotta tell you that I am also very very happy with the Lubex anti-age hydration oil. they both smell very nice and bring me into a SPA mood, seriously, I can really relax by smelling certain things. anyway, the Lubex anti-age hydration oil has a very subtle floral scent and the oil is being absorbed very fast by the skin. thats why it can also be used for day and night, as it wont leave a greasy mess on our faces – yay! my skin loves oils as not only my face but my whole body deals with sensitive dry skin. I will continue to use it all up and will tell you more in my future empties but be prepared that this might take a while as I expect this product to last – three drops for the face, neck and décolleté! you can find more information here »
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 »
