I live in Basel and therefore I am a local who can give you lots of tips about Basel. especially during the Art Basel week we tend to have long days and long nights and then its very nice to treat oneself with something nice. so, when I have a rough day or my feet hurt from being on them all day long I like to get myself a footmassage or a pedicure, depending on my time schedule. I can absolutely recommend Ramona Gysi and her salon RG Cosmetic & Massage.
I had the pleasure to get a foot reflexzone massage the other day and it was such a relaxing experience. by massaging the feet the whole body is affected and therefor it feels like a full body massage.
in case you need a hair cut I can also recommend a very nice salon called WINTER COIFFURE its located behind AESCHENPLATZ at Lange Gasse 28. Stefanie Winter is cutting my hair for a very long time and I blogged about my experiences several times before.
Stefanie Winter has worked in the coiffure industry for years and stands for styling expertise at the highest level. she opened her first salon in Basel at Lange Gasse 28 in Basel. the approximately 80 square-foot facility is located directly behind Aeschenplatz. Stefanie Winter is coiffeuse out of passion and her success is based on the unique feeling for people and style.
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.

yes, we all have to treat ourselves every now and then! and I did yesterday at MANOR – I stumbled upon the new courrèges collection for Estée Lauder! sigh, what a super nice collection with a shimmering bronzing powder a cute tiny brush that is perfect for travelling, two eyeshadows, several lip products and fake eyelashes. out of the whole collection I was absolutely fascinated by the minty green-ish shimmering eyeshadow. it reminds me so much of a mermaid! and zack – I had to have it! at the moment you get 10% off when paying with the MANOR card and some brands even add another 10% not the case with Estée Lauder but at least I got 10% off. instead of 39 CHF it was 35.10 CHF – a tiny bargain!
here you can watch my lovely YT video about the new eyeshadow and soon I will show you a makeUp look where you can see me play around with it.
I have tried two more of the Lubex anti-age products and today I wanna tell you a little bit about the CLEANSING MILK and TONIC. in case you have missed my latest product review have a look here <<
“gin and tonic for you and milk and tonic for me”
the mild cleansing formula gently removes makeUp and I have really tried it to the max meaning I removed all my makeUp with it including the eyemakeUp. I read that it is not removing some of the waterproof mascaras but I am never using any waterproof one so I can not tell. cleaning your skin is the first step to a clear and healthy looking skin and when I used the cleansing milk it felt like it already started to pamper my skin. on the packaging I read that the skin caring effect already starts during cleansing. et voila! it contains Vitamin C – ProVitamin E and Coenzym Q10 that help to reduce the dammage caused by the environment.
I applied the milk all over my face and neck including the eye area then I have used a damp cotton pad to remove the access. when I was wearing a heavy foundation and lots of eyemakeUp I had to do it two times. I have to be honest with you that I am actually not a big fan of cleansing milks and that every morning in the shower I use a foaming face wash and use water to clean my face. but then I read a lot about sensitive skin and not using water to clean the face and it made me think if that might be the solution to my skin issues.. I gave it a try and am using the cleansing milk for the last two weeks and I really got used to it. I have only used it in the evening as I take a shower every morning and still clean my face with water.
after cleaning my face I am ready for step two: the tonic! it refreshes the skin and makes it supple and nice. hyaluronates help to hydrate the skin and protect it from dehydration. I pumped two or three times and that was enough for my face and neck. the tonic prepares your skin for the next step: serum. the packaging of the tonic says that it is aqueous base without alcohol. yay – that is perfect for my sensitive skin. most of the common tonics contain alcohol and for most of the people this works fine but not for me. : )
