these two lovely things found their way to me and I have been using them the last couple of weeks. ooh dear, I like them both!
VICHY Capital Soleil BB Creme SPF 50
It has a lovely texture and a rather light coverage. I love BB Creams and I love high SPF protection and here I have found the perfect combo. A BB Cream with SPF 50!
KIEHL’S Micro Blur Skin Perfector
Apply this and you are ready to go, this product immediately blurs all my imperfections into oblivion! I have to say I am very much impressed! I use it after my Creme and Foundation and wow I can really see a before/after effect. I hope to be able to catch this on camera and show you.
#1 KIEHL’S ULTRA LIGHT DAILY DEFENSE SPF50
#2 LANCASTER SELF TAN MEDIUM (IBIZA)
#3 M.A.C MINERALIZE SKINFINISH SUN POWER
#4 KÉRASTASE SOLEIL CC CREME
#5 THE BODY SHOP ALOE SOOTHING GEL
aaww.. these products are amazing! they all do their one certain job very perfectly. something against the sun – something for a nice self tan without being exposed to the sun – another nice product that makes you look like you have spent the weekend in the sun with a couple of moves – a CC cream to protect the hair and a super nice soothing cooling aloe gel for the face after a day in the sun!
I am soon packing my bags for my roadtrip to ITALY and for sure I am going to bring these!
Clinique has spoilt me by sending me these gorgeous new chubby sticks for lips and eyes. it all arrived yesterday and I couldnt hold back. I had to try them! I have used the 14 grandest gold as a base allover my lid. I put 02 lots o’ latte in the crease and 13 two ton teal on the outer V of the eye. It blends very easy and I was able to apply the complete eyelook without any brushes! I am really happy with these chubby sticks for the eyes as applying makeup can hardly get any easier 🙂

SENSAI SILKY BRONZE
“the sun is shining the weather is sweet..” so lets see what SENSAI is presenting this Summer! I got the Sensai Silky Bronze Cellular Protective Cream for Face SPF 50 – Silky Bronze Self Taning for Face – Silky Bronze Sun Protective Compact – Silky Bronze Cellular Protective Cream for Body SPF 30 and I have used these products for the last couple of sunny days! I can directly compare this collection with the Lancaster Sun Control products that I have also recently tested. so let me tell you what I think about the Silky Bronze collection:
Silky Bronze Cellular Protective Cream for Face SPF 50
a very nice cream and super easy to apply. I think SPF 50 is perfect for the face but its also available in SPF 15 and SPF 30 and it is waterresisitant!
Silky Bronze Self Taning for Face
I did not use this product yet, I will keep you posted!
Silky Bronze Sun Protective Compact SPF 30
I love bronzing compact powders and especially this one! it has the perfect shade and matte finish without any shimmer. It can be used dry or wet and is waterresistant. this is my favorite product out of the Sensai Silky Bronze Collection and I would definitely repurchase it!
Silky Bronze Cellular Protective Cream for Body SPF 30
like the one for the face it is also a very nice light cream that is very easy to apply. I used it this sunday and I was in the direct sunlight at the river for about 3 hours in the afternoon and I didnt get any sun burn. Its only available in SPF 30 which I consider a bit low. to be very honest I dont really like the smell of these creams or maybe its just because I prefere the smell of the Lancaster Sun Control products that I have also recently tested.
did you use the Sensai Silky Bronze products?
the sun is out and thats the time where we should think about SPF – do you use SPF? I can highly recommend to do so. the sun is very powerful and can cause serious damage to your skin.. yeah, I know.. I am sure you have heard that somewhere before 🙂 anyway, I want to show you what I use at the moment in order to keep my skin protected from UV A and UV B rays.
LANCASTER Sun Control Fluid SPF 50
Thats what I start with, thats my base in spring and summer. It is a very light fluid and very easy to apply all over my face and neck. I already introduced this product here >>
CLINIQUE superdefense SPF 20
As a second step I use my daily moisturizer. It already has an average SPF but not enough for my sensitive skin and my couperose parts on my cheeks. here you can read my opinion about the Clinique Superdefense – I did a test with Jaswant and we are both still using them. >>
ESTEE LAUDER CC Cream SPF 10
I think this is enough coverage for me in spring and summer. Its perfect to even out my skintone and leaves a nice glow. read more about this CC Cream here >>
so after these steps I curl my eyelashes, I apply Bronzer and lipstick and I am ready for the day!
whats your skin care routine? do you use SPF? what products do you use?
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?
