today I was at SCHMINKBAR BASEL and I had the chance to try one of their awesome facial treatments. for me and all the busy ladies in Basel I tried the quick beautiful facial treatment. it takes about 45 minutes and costs 100 CHF and I can highly recommend to schedule an appointment with Valentina, she did an amazing job and I will def go back to get that treatment.
now lets see what kind of products she has used for my skin. as some of you may know I have very sensitive skin with couperose parts on my cheeks, this means that my skin is very thin and needs extra care and sun protection. before you start your facial treatment they will anyway ask you about your skin and skin care. in my case I told Valentina about my problems and when she had a closer look under the lamp she could only confirm that. and now the products:
ROBERT & JOSIANE
DIE SANFTE face soap
FRÜHLINGSWUNDER gentle face peeling
MORGENTAU refreshing tonic
SCHÖNE AUSSICHTEN face serum
TAG- + NACHTGLEICHE facial cream
BLÜTENBLÄTTER beauty oil
eau de cologne
CAMPHER mask BELLETRICE
EYE LIFT cream
last time when I was at schminkbar in Basel i took a lovely video and since it was a bit of an odd angle for me to film the facial treatment I decided not to make a movie but wright a blogpost about it.
the quick beautiful treatment was very very relaxing. Valentina did not talk too much but explained the most important things which was highly appreciated by me. she took a close look at my skin with the lamp and decided which products will suit my skins needs. I was already a fan of ROBERT & JOSIANE’s products and was very happy when I heard that she will be using lots of products by them. (see list of products above)
she started with cleaning my entire face and neck with help of steam, followed by a very gentle peeling (she has left out my sensitive cheek area) and prepared my skin for the actual treatment: mask and serum. as I have already said, I am def going back to get exactly that treatment. its quick, relaxing and efficient!

these are some of the new beauty products for men and I am very happy with the new DAVIDOFF fragrance, a spicy herbal fresh scent, nothing like Coolwater a lot more sophisticated I find. but as you may already know I find it very hard to describe scents for others and think its always best to see for oneself. I would give this one a try! available March, 1, 2016
the men beauty market is booming and almost every brand has now a line for men too. thats also the case with Kérastase, after the Force Capital collection they came out with the new Densifique line for men fighting hair loss. thats a big market as lots of men are loosing their hair the older they get. the new Densifique Densité Homme collection consists of 3 products: a shampoo, a hair balm and a serum. in case you want to read more about it click here >>

I did it and I am 100% convinced and ready to do it again! I am talking about the Kerasilk Keratin Treatment and it took some time but it was totally worth it. how did it work?
step 1: hairwash with the purifying KS shampoo step 2: blowdry hair 80% step 3: Kerasilk Keratin treatment step 4: blowdry 100% step 5: iron 200° C with flattening iron step 6: hairwash with the ultra rich keratin care step 7: KS serum step 8: blowdry 100% and styling
my hair feels amazing, almost like silk. the kerasilk keratin treatment made my hair stronger, more relaxed and less frizzy. It lasts up to 5 months and is not cheap! (250/350/450CHF) there are also products for after the treatment and I got the KS ultra rich keratin care shampoo, KS ultra rich keratin daily intense mask, KS ultra rich keratin care deep smoothing mask – and these products are mindblowing! I stopped using all my other shampoos and am absolutely enjoying the smell and result of these new buggers. thank you Stefanie and team, you changed my hairworld! she is actually working with the ROLLAND products but for the Kerasilk Keratin treatment she made an exception. I am a huge fan of the ROLLAND philosophy with their sustainable glass containers and refill strategies and not only that the products look amazing in the bathroom!
TOMMY HILFIGER endlessly blue
RADICAL screen and serum
DOVE nutrium moisture
(sunglasses SIX via C&A)
the newest TOMMY HILFIGER fragrance will be available in the shopy by the end of July 2014 – ONLY AT DOUGLAS! a very fresh and summery scent!
protect your skin especially in summer! RADICAL has something really nice and in very handy sizes to go – perfect for travelling! skin perfecting screen SPF 30 non chenimcal sunscreen UV Broad Spectrum – High Protection! I looove this! although I prefer SPF 50 for my face but once I am a bit tanned the SPF 30 is okay. the multi brightening serum for day and night calms your skin and prepares or pampers your skin for the sun and the environmental dammages.
DOVE came out with something new – nutrium moisture a very rich shower cream that smells delicious. this is for normal to very dry skin.
this month it will be all about BEAUTY PRODUCT BESTSELLERS previously I have showed you the Bestellers of L’Occitane and The Body Shop , M.A.C and today I will show you 2 of the Estée Lauder Bestseller products.
an alltime favourite of my mom, #1 Advanced Night Repair. She has been using this for at least 6 or more years and I can really see the effect it has to her skin. so when I read that Advanced Night Repair is among the bestselling products of Estée Lauder it really made me curious and I had to try it out myself. let me tell you, this is a magic product that will smoothen and soften your skin while you are asleep – not only smooth and soft it makes you look very fresh! #2 Double Wear foundation – aww.. this is one of my favourite foundations, it stays in place and leaves a nice finish. I apply it either with a foundation brush or with my fingers. the only thing I would change about this product is the design. I really miss a dispenser. the bottle opens with a lid and has no pumpsystem or so – therefore I think its not the easiest foundation for on the way.
