I am sure some of you might wonder why this post is in the lifestyle category. so let’s consider having a nice and soft skin as a lifestyle. I do and I wish you would agree. : ) body scrubs, exfoliators or peelings are basically the same, there are just different names used. try to use one where there are no plastic balls involved because it is not good for the planet and also not good for your skin.
M.ASAM has amazing body scrubs and I have tested some and I gotta to say: I found a favorite among them. my favorite one is called BROWN SUGAR. unfortunately I could not find it anymore on their online shop, but they have a very similar one that you can check here >> another one I have tried by M.ASAM is called 2015 and is a very nice slightly powdery fragranced scrub. the last one I have tried by them is called DREAM OF ROSES and I was only able to find the body cream – check here >> the cool thing about M.ASAM is that they sell scrubs and creams from the same fragrance and line. after the peeling I love using the same fragranced cream.
at M.ASAM you can customize the stick on label by adding text to the two bottom lines. also there are options to choose different background images. check the example here >> this makes it a very great CHRISTMAS present!
in the image above you can see a blue scrub (top) thats the one by CLINIQUE and I have used that one in summer a lot, it is a cool and fresh body scrub called SPARKLE SKIN BODY EXFOLIATOR this product is great for men and women as it has no fragrance. the other two are by M.ASAM. the middle one is DREAM OF ROSES and the bottom one is BROWN SUGAR. unforutnately I used up the 2015 body scrub already during summer but you can see the packaging in the photo below. for sure I will be talking about it in my next EMPTIES video on youtube.
how often and what for?
I use a body scrub every other day. in summer I like a cooling fresh one and in winter I like a nice warm scented one. in spring I use body scrubs before fake tanning but in general I think it is great to remove the old dead pieces of skin. after showering with a body scrub my skin feels amazingly soft and smooth. especially my ellbow, knees and heels like an extra scrub. body scrubs are great for men and women and I am sure that you will find something nice for you.
today it is all about the shower and I wanna share with you my newest shower buddy: LUBEX peeling. for the past ten years or more I have been daily using the DERMED wash lotion. my skin is very sensitive and dry and therefore I need to watch out for too rough and too drying out washlotions and peelings. the LUBEX peeling regenerates theskin and makes itvelvety soft and thats exactly what we need in preparation for summer.
the cool thing about this peeling is that it is a 2 in 1 product, it is for the face and the body. but as I have already told you in previous posts I have couperose around my cheeks and thats why I have to handle these parts with special soft care. BUT I have been using the peeling for the body until tuesday night and I really liked it. at the moment showering is NOT a walk in the park as my bruises from the bike
accident burn when wet and being washed with lotion.
in general do not use any peeling too often, once or twice a week is enough for me.. and the most important thing after peeling aka exfoliating is to moisturize the skin. aww, there are so many nice ways to treat oneself, right? HOME SPA is one of them.
HOW TO USE AND WHERE? apply to thedamp skin, gently massagein a circular motion15 to 30 seconds, let it soak for a moment and rinsethoroughly with water. thats it – as simple as any other peeling or exfoliator. it is perfect for rougherparts of the body and it helps the
regeneration of the stratum corneum. for normal, oilyorblemished skin it is also great for a facial scrub and the last option is to use it as a supplementary therapy foracne, predominantlythe non-inflammatory stage.
WHAT DOES THE MAGIC? the active ingredients are polidocanol600*andbisabolol** and they soothe the skin. the LUBEX peeling washingcream has a2-phaseeffect: effectphase 1 small roundpolyethylenegranules (microgranules scrub = biodegradable) remove dead skin cellsand make the skinsilky smooth. effectphase2

**bisabolol is an ingredient of chamomile with anti-inflammatory, disinfecting and wound healing promoting properties. it is externally applied for the treatment of skin diseases.
so I hope you have found this article interesting and that you now know more about my new shower buddy. 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.
so happy to be driving around in this cute smooth FIAT 500 in such a gorgeous baby blue color!
I am a wardrobe stylist and I often need to carry around a lot of stuff and therefor a car like this comes in super handy as I live in Basel, Switzerland a place where it is hard to find a legal parking space.
the space insided this little car is still amazing. I can fit 4 people plus small luggage in the trunk, I can take my friends shopping and we can litteraly fill up the car with shopping bags 🙂
more photos with information about the car are coming soon!
