I diligently tested a lot of new products in the last few weeks  – note the summer tan on the above photo – now I would like to introduce you to the tested products in more detail.






For the first time ever, I’ve tested products from Origins of the Original Skin line – so much in advance – I’m thrilled with this brand.


Original Skin™ Matte Moisturizer with Willowherb


Before the make-up comes the care – the Original Skin Matte Moisturizer with Willowherb by Origins is a light gel cream and is therefore great for oily skin like mine. The cream moisturizes without greasing. Apply in the morning before make-up and 5 min. let absorb. It is also great on makeup-free days to dull the skin a bit.


ORIGINS Original Skin™ Pore Perfecting Cooling Primer with Willowherb


Now to my new daily companion, who at first seemed rather extraordinary, especially in its consistency. The Origins Original Skin Pore Perfecting Cooling Primer with Willowherb is an absolute must-have. The mousse primer is super easy to apply, merges with the skin, cools it and makes the pores disappear. The make-up also lasts the whole day. I’m really excited and will definitely buy it again.


Cleansing Makeup Removing Jelly Original Skin


Now to the cleaning, the Cleansing Makeup Removing Jelly Original Skin from Origins is a mild gel cleaner. It is great for removing Foundation and Co. and does not burn when he comes into his eyes. To do this, spread a few gel on the skin and “froth” up with water.




Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate


The Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate is a very light – gelatinous yet creamy – serum with a wonderful floral scent. It contains the Ultimune Complex and high-quality plant extracts that strengthen the skin’s own defense system. The concentrate or serum thus protects skin types of all ages from dryness, UV radiation, pigmentation marks and premature skin aging. Since it is a very light serum I use it often in the morning after cleansing, before the care and the make-up. It is well-fed.



In addition, the fragrance wakes me up properly and the skin feels instantly neat.






As you know, I’ve become a huge fan of Sisley’s products, especially in the last few months – and for good reasons. Unlike other brands, Sisley’s products contain a higher level of active ingredients, and you’ll notice that. I was now allowed to test the Sisley L’Intégral Anti-Age Firm Concentrated Serum. This is a very rich one – so I save this intensive care for my evening routine. The skin feels very nourished after the application and radiates in the morning after.


isley L'Intégral Anti-Âge Firmen Concentrated Serum review


The serum has a very nourishing consistency and is very rich. The effect involves two points


“1. Reactivation of the firmness mechanisms of the skin In addition to the natural effects of aging, the lifestyle also affects the production of elastin, the skin’s firmness molecule. Oreganoextrakt, a new active ingredient from Sisley, boosts the skin’s firmness mechanisms and more elastic.


2. Restoring the resilience of the skin Strength loss is also caused by the decreasing elasticity of the skin. The Phyto-Complex Pro-Firm 7, a unique complex of 7 powerful botanical extracts, works in deeper skin layers to promote and restore the elasticity on all levels of the skin. ”


I will keep using the serum and keep you updated on the results.


Pixi Skintreats


pixi beauty skin care


From Pixi skintreats I have also tested two products. On the one hand the Glow-O2 Oxygen Mask and on the other hand the Glow Mud Cleanser.

Glow-O2 Oxygen Mask pixi skin treats review


The Glow-O2 Oxygen Mask by Pixi Skintreats is a so called Bubble Mask. Once applied to the face, the bubbles begin to unfold and transform the mask into a kind of foam. It contains an oxygen complex with vitamins, ginseng, caffeine and antioxidants as well as lactic acid which combats the effects of damaging environmental influences. The mask is easy to apply, simply apply the gel to the cleansed skin and let it work in, then rinse off. The mask nourishes and lets the skin shine again.


Glow Mud Cleanser pixi


I have been using the Glow Mud Cleanser for a few weeks and I really like it. It contains 5% glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid, aloe vera and avocado. In particular glycolic acid fights enlarged pores, acne and acne scars. Therefore, a great cleanser for anyone with blemished skin. The skin is well cleaned but not dried out. I always use the Cleanser in the evening.




Clarins Hydratant Essentials Masque Yeux


I have countless face masks at home, but so far I had no eye mask, which is not intended for single use only. The Clarins Hydratant Essentials Masque Yeux closes this gap in my beauty cabinet. Especially the sensitive skin around the eyes needs – at least for me – intensive care and moisture. This mask is wonderful to use while e.g. another mask is applied with the eyes usually have to be spared. I now use the Clarins Hydratant Essentials Masque Yeux 1-2 times a week, letting it work for 10 min once and once a night. Very important, too, that I never reacted to the mask.




Caudalie S.O.S Feuchtigkeitsserum Review


The Caudalie S.O.S moisture serum from the Vinosource series is as the name suggests moisturizing. In addition, the texture is very light and fluid, it moves accordingly fast and well. It is non-comedogenic and suitable for all skin types.


Caudalie S.O.S Feuchtigkeitsserum Review


I use the Caudalie S.O.S moisturizing serum in cases of acute skin tension, e.g. after an intensive clarifying mask or in the absence of humidity.


ECooking / The curated skin


ecooking review


Some time ago I got from the online shop The curated skin a trial package of ECooking products. From this I picked out two products that sounded particularly interesting and tested them.


ECooking vitamin e serum


I first learned about vitamin E serum from my favorite sexubers from the States, they have a Skin Care Company and swear by it. The more excited I was on this test. Vitamin E is a great moisturizer and antioxidant. The serum is slightly thick, but can be applied well. I also used it especially during my summer vacation as it also helps against sunburn (luckily I did not) and moisturized the skin very intensely without any frills.


Cooking peel mask


The Peel Mask by ECooking is a chemical peeling mask with milk and fruit acid against wrinkles, fine lines and rough skin textures. Here I have to point out that this mask is very strong or aggressive. The duration of use should never be exceeded. During use the skin burns and after use it is temporarily reddened. This mask is in my opinion really not suitable for sensitive skin. The ingredients are very highly dosed, which of course also increases the effectiveness. After the application one notices a change of the skin, the pores appear finer. The mask helps to reduce large pores. Even after use, however, the skin still feels irritated and hot for some time. Therefore necessarily apply in the evening. After the first application I also used Healing Earth Skin Fine 2 by Luvos with water to calm the skin.


On occasion, I will be happy to test other products from ECooking, because the products are really reduced to the most important and they contain highly concentrated active ingredients.




Lancome masken review


I also tested two masks by Lancôme. On the one hand the Advanced Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl Eye Mask and the Advanced Génifique Yeux Hydrogel Melting Mask. The Undereye pads are generously soaked with serum and feel slightly cooling.


Advanced Génifique Yeux Hydrogel Melting Mask Tuchmask review


The Advanced Génifique Yeux Hydrogel Melting Mask by Lancôme is moisturizing and can be used in three different ways. In order to prepare the skin for make-up, it should work for 10 minutes to give the skin glow during the day 20 minutes and to intensively nourish the skin overnight at 30 minutes before going to bed. I left the mask on for 30 minutes before bedtime. Again, a lot of care is included and the mask is well soaked, so that there is still product left over, which can continue to work overnight.




Dermasence Tuchmaske


I was still diligent and have also tested the masks of Dermasel. Both masks contain Dead Sea salt, which is rich in mineral complexes.


The Cell Protect Mask contains sea fennel: The ingredients of this plant stimulate cell renewal and counteract the drying of the skin, by increasing the ceramide synthesis. Few plants are able to stimulate cell bioactivity to stimulate cell division and contribute to the formation of new skin cells. Sea fennel is also called “vitamin A from the sea”. So far, the sea fennel has been new to me – so I thought a little bit of background info does not hurt. The mask contains plenty of product and is easy to apply, it is also not too big and therefore sits pretty well. The skin looks and feels cushioned and well-groomed after use.


The Skin Contour Mask contains ice wine: From frozen grapes you can get the “tightening agent” polyphenol, an anti-aging ingredient. Again, I did not know the active ingredient yet. The mask is also soaked with care and easy to apply. The mask also smells wonderfully sweet. After the application, the skin is recovered.


I like these cloth care masks very much – for quick care and especially for easy care and intensive moisture.

Do you know the products? I hope I could help you a bit with my review. Otherwise, leave me your questions in the comments.




Hairstyle hair beauty


Today it’s all about hair care and hair styling. During the last few weeks I have tried some products and tools for you.


haircare products


I tested a travel hair dryer and a hair straightener of T3 micro. A new hair care line by I am Professional and a dry shampoo for dark hair. One product of the new L’Oréal Stylista line. An organic hair shampoo by Yves Rocher and one by Rausch. And a natural cosmetics hair oil.


Yves Rocher Glanz-Shampoo-Konzentrat Yves Rocher Review


The Yves Rocher Shine Shampoo Concentrate is sufficient for 30 hair washes. For every hair wash only a little bit of shampoo concentrate is needed. The formula is readily biodegradable. The recyclable bottle then consists of recycled plastic. In addition, a tree will b planted with each purchased shampoo. The small bottle I took with me on vacation, it was more than enough for everyone. I particularly like the scent of the shampoo. The hair is not getting dried out. A great shampoo for on the go, which also protects the environment.


I Am Migros Haarpflege


Migros own brand I am Professional offers a few hair care products. The charcoal shampoo contains activated charcoal, it cleanses the hair and scalp noticeably thorough, the hair feels airy and carefree after washing. Also recommended is the new Activeplex serum – yes it reminds me of Olaplex. Since I always dye my hair and let it bleach, the hair needs some extra care. I use the serum about 2-3 times a week to care. The hair tips have recovered very well. Last but not least to the dry shampoo, if it has to go fast, a dry shampoo is very convenient. However, if you also have brown or dark hair, you probably know the problem with white dry shampoos. The I Am dry shampoo smells very good and makes the hair look fresher immediately without white haze.


T3 Hair styler


Most hotel hair dryers and travel hairdryers have too little power and sometimes can not even be plugged in in different countries. All the more I was happy about the travel hair dryer from T3 micro. However, unfortunately he can not be plugged into the swiss sockets – at least not at my home. But I also like the design very well with the rose gold and it has proven itself – both in Italy and in Croatia. The Featherweight Compact hair dryer by T3 has a dual tension and is as the name reveals super light.


Hair straightener


A few years ago I had straighten my hair daily, then I stopped it – even to spare the hair. Nowadays, however, the straighteners are much gentler than they were 10 years ago. The T3 straightener is also very elegant with rose gold. LED lights indicate the heat level. The single-pass Luxe 25 mm flat iron will then have a lot of power and usually smoothes my hair in one go. In addition, waves can be conjured.


L'Oréal Stylista The Sleek Serum Review


The L’Oréal Stylista The Sleek Serum is the perfect product to straighten your hair with the T3 straightener. It is non-greasy and has an anti-frizz effect. It is gently spread in towel-dried hair before blow-drying and then dry-blown. Afterwards, straighten the hair with the straightener. To get the frizz-free finish, stroking the serum over the hair.


Rausch Shampoo Pure Frische Review


The new Pure Fresh Shampoos by Rausch contain all extracts of typical Swiss plants, as here in the version with gentian. The shampoo can be used very sparingly, even a small amount foams well. It is very refreshing and the fresh floral scent I like very much.


Biokosma Haaröl Review


Finally, I tried a repair hair oil from another Swiss beauty brand. Bioskosma is a natural cosmetics brand. The new hair oil with organic horsetail and organic crescent root nourishes my dry tips. I wear it in the evening before bedtime 1-2 a week and it works overnight as a cure. After washing the hair, no oil residues remain.

They contains glycolic acid (10%) and smoothes the skin texture. The contained vitamin A is also an effective antioxidant as well as vitamins C and E are. It is important to use the Glow Serum regularly to make the effects visible. Since it contains glycolic acid, it is also essential to apply a sunscreen in the sun.

loving tan review


Is it worth the hype? You may have seen Loving Tan already on Instagram, a year ago I decided to order a product from Australia and I loved it so much. So, of course, I was very happy to work together with Loving Tan for this review. Loving Tan sent me some great products for testing.


loving tan review


Here you can see which products and tools I was allowed to test: The Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse in Ultra Dark, the Loving Tan Bronze Shimmer Luminious Cream in Ultra Dark, the Loving Tan Deluxe Applicator Mitt, the Loving Tan Tan Removing &  Skin Polishing Glove and the Loving Tan Easy to Reach Tool. Now I’m happy to tell you more about the products and show you the results of the tan.


loving tan review


Loving Tan Bronze Shimmer Luminious Cream in Ultra Dark gives the tan the perfect finish and fits perfect to the tanning mousse to make the tan look even more natural. Here I applied the cream without previous tan on my right leg and even then a gentle tan is visible. In addition, the cream is easy to apply, feels nourishing on the skin and leaves a great glow – perfect for the summer.


loving tan review


The Deluxe Applicator Mitt is perfect to evenly apply the tanning mousse. It is made of strong soft fabric and is processed to last a long time and to serve as a tanning aid. The soft surface makes applying the tanning mousse super pleasant.


loving tan review


Before you apply the Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse, it is important to prepare the skin. This is a thorough exfoliation inevitable, you can also use the Loving Tan Tan Removing & Skin Polishing Glove. Then you should apply on rough areas such as elbows, knees and also on the feet and hands a little body lotion and let it move. Then place the Deluxe Bronze Mousse on the Applicator Mitt and apply quickly from the bottom to the top. If you are still unsure about how to apply, you can find detailed video tutorials on the Loving Tan website.


Here again the before picture. As you can see, coating once was enough to create a mega tan.


loving tan review

The tan of Loving Tan also look – in contrast to other products – very natural and not too orange. By the way, with a make-up sponge, the tanning mousse can also be used on the face without any problem. But before that, you should also apply a little bit of moisturizer first.


loving tan review


If you do not have anyone to help you cream your back, Loving Tan’sm Easy to Reach Tool von Loving Tan is the answer. You can just give the tanning mousse on the sponges and distribute it on bulky body parts easily and evenly.


loving tan review


The Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse dries quickly and lasts a week. If you need to renew the tan you can just take Loving Tan Tan Removing &  Skin Polishing Glove in hand under the shower so can remove the tan easily and can then be renewed.


loving tan review


Now for the color, I recommend you to take a shade darker than you thought, because then the results are immediately visible. Of course, your preferences also play a big role. I ordered the Deluxe Bronzing Mousse in the color dark one year ago, but I like the result of Ultra Dark even more because it’s more intense.


When ordering a mousse from Loving Tan you will get a message for free with the code “thechicadvocate”.

Sonnenschutz test Review Sonnencreme


The summer is currently in a sunny mood including daily sunshine: much needed because of that is an accurate sun protection. Meanwhile, there are sunscreen in various forms to give you an overview of the best new products. I have tested myself through some product novelties and introduce you to my favorites today.


Shiseido Clear Stick UV Protector


The Shiseido Clear Stick UV protector is one of my absolute favorites this summer, all make-up lovers like me certainly know the problem, either you take a make-up with included UV protection or the sunscreen must be incorporated otherwise. Super easy is this now with the Clear Stick by Shiseido, he can easily be applied under the make-up and immediately acts like a primer. Make-up above it and you’re done. The citrus scent is also very pleasant. The Shiseido Clear Stick UV Protector is then non-comedogenic, water-repellent and does not stick. You can also apply it over the make-up, but I find it better underneath. Often we forget the sun protection of our lips, straight on the beach but also red lips look seductive. The Shiseido UV Lip Color Splash protects the lips with SPF 30 from the harmful UVA rays and at the same time you receive red kiss lips. Another advantage over a lip balm – it does not melt.


clarins Sun Care Cream


Also from Clarins there are this summer new sunscreen products available. I have tested the Crème Solaire Sécurité, the Crème Solaire Anti-Rides Visage and the Baume Après Soleil Régénérant Réhydratant Intense. So the whole range that you need. Clarins Solaire Sécurité by Clarins has sun protection factor 30, it has a creamy formula and is suitable for the body. I particularly like the summery floral scent. For the face and décolleté I use from this range the Crème Solaire Anti-Rides Visage, which also contains sun protection factor 30. It also counteracts wrinkles and skin aging. Both products must be reapplied after bathing in order to maintain the sunscreen. Even after sunbathing or at the beach, the skin needs extra care. The Baume Après Soleil Régénérant Réhydratant Intense provides the skin with the necessary moisture on the body and face, regenerates and extends the tan. The après care also has the same scent, therefore a complete line for the other sunny days.


Avène Cleanance Solaire


At Avène, you can find sunscreen for hypersensitive, sensitized skin, which is 100% mineral and does not require any chemical filters, fragrances or parabens. I was allowed to test the hypoallergenic mineral sun fluid with SPF 50, it is slightly creamy and leaves a wonderful glow on the skin, perfect for the day at the beach. My tip: It is also suitable for daily use to get a natural glow in everyday life. If you are prone to oily skin, Avène Cleanance Solaire SPF 50 may be the better choice as the pumpkin seed extract in it regulates sebum production and is ideal for oily skin. It has a slightly matting effect and has a pleasant fragrance like a perfume. The formulation is noticeably less greasy, but the matting effect is not enough for me to keep the skin shiny.


I am Sun Protect Leave in Spray Migros


For years already, I use a sunscreen spray for the hair and scalp. All the more I was happy about the new I Am Sun Protect Leave-In Spray by Migros. It contains UVA and UVB filters, which preserve the natural moisture and prevent fading. In addition, the care provides optimal protection against seawater and chlorine. Shake the spray well before sunbathing and spray into dry or damp hair. It is important to shake the spray well first, so that the phases can mix. An absolute buy tip with a great price-performance ratio.


Aderma Creme très haute protection


The sun protection products of Aderma I could already test last year. The cream très haute protection with sun protection factor 50 is particularly suitable for normal to dry skin and intended for the face, neck and décolleté. It is a plant-based sunscreen that contains the active substance rhealba®, a seed oil that protects the skin and strengthens the skin barrier. The cream has a light and liquid consistency and can be applied well, it is perfumed.


Ultrasun Body Tan Activator SPF 30


One of my favorite products this summer is the Ultrasun Body Tan Activator SPF 30. This is a tan-activating sunscreen gel, in my opinion the gel is in the consistency between a gel and a cream, a creamy gel. It is easy to apply and is also suitable for sensitive skin. Now it takes me a long time until I accept a tan. The Ultrasun Body Tan Activator contains a tanning activating substance that stimulates melanin production and activates the natural tanning process. I noticed an effect when tanning and am happy with it. Nevertheless, it contains an SPF 30 and therefore protects optimally.


Sun Look Sport Sun Spray SF50


For all athletes among you my boyfriend has tested the Sun Look Sport Sun Spray SF50. It is easy to spray on and spread on the skin. In addition, the spray is very convenient to take with you and can not leak. The SPF 50 is especially important when exercising. Actually, my boyfriend can not go longer without it to the skating rink. The extra-durable formula also keeps sweat out, but sunspray should be applied again for a longer stay in the sun. Especially the easy application without the typical creaming is to be evaluated positively.
Garnier ambre solaire sensitive expert anti age review
The Garnier Ambre Solaire Sensitive Expert + Anti-Age SPF 50 is a sunscreen for use on the face, neck, décolleté and hands. It is perfume-free, waterproof, non-greasy and has a light texture. The cream is absorbed well and does not greasy. Priced a good option.
Weleda Edelweiss Sonnencreme Gesicht

This year I also tested a sunscreen product of the Natural Cosmetics Division. The Edelweiss sunscreen for the face of Weleda with SPF 30 is waived here on chemical sunscreen. The sunscreen has a refreshing lemon fragrance, which I personally find very appealing. It can be applied very well thanks to the relatively fluid texture and absorbs quickly enough. The sunscreen is also vegan.


Daylong Face 50+
By Daylong there is a newly tinted BB fluid with sun protection factor 50. This I prefer to use instead of make-up to still have some color in the face. The fluid absorbs well and leaves a pleasant feeling on the skin without sticking. The color adapts easily to the skin tone and looks very natural. In addition, the formulation is not comedogenic.
Louis widmer 50 + All day
The Liposomal Sun Milk All Day by Louis Widmer also has a sun protection factor of 59 and is waterproof. It is particularly suitable for extremely sun-sensitive skin. The consistency corresponds to a sunscreen and is therefore more liquid than a cream, it can be applied well. The sunscreen is dermatologically tested and contains UVA and UVB protection filters. An allrounder product for the whole day. The sunscreen is slightly perfumed.


Which sunscreen products are you currently using?

Today I would like to introduce you to a classic skin care product that I have been testing for several weeks now. The Sisley Émulsion Écologique limited edition is something very special, because its formula has not been changed since its introduction in 1980 and there is a reason for that. Sometimes a change is not indicated. An all-round product for the whole year that can be easily combined with other skin care products.


The  is a universal, modern skin care for use at any age, even men can use it. It contains extracts of centella, asiatica, ginseng, rosemary, hops and horsetail. It has a pleasant smell of herbs, which is another reason why it is gender-neutral. I use the Émulsion Écologiqueof Sisley as day care. The Émulsion Écologique is dull, fresh and intensively moisturizes. After use, even stressed and dry skin feels relaxed without irritating the skin. The texture is not greasy, which is especially important to me. The Émulsion Écologique is wonderfully suited as a basic care – also in combination with other care products. My friend also tried it after shaving and was thrilled of the effect, especially since he has sensitive skin and reacts quickly to harsh ingredients.


The pretty bottle of this limited edition was illustrated by the artist Elzbieta Radziwill with flowers, leaves and butterflies. With gold and red the bottle of the Émulsion Écologique of Sisley looks very noble and looks so pretty in my bathroom cabinet.


Do you already know the Émulsion Écologique by Sisley?

Beautyblog Skin Care Hair Care Estée Lauder KLorane


The last few days I have been very busy. So I did not manage to write this post earlier. During the summertime I love light and uncomplicated skin care products that work. I am always very excited about the Bronze Goddess collection by Estée Lauder every summer. I felled in love with the Bronze Goddess oil with a Glow a year ago. Today I would like to introduce you to a product for hot summer days and for some perfect beach waves. Brand new on the market are then the body care products from Klorane, which I was allowed to try.


Beautyblog Skin Care Hair Care Estée Lauder KLorane


Especially in summer, I really like the natural wavy beach hair look. No hairstyle works better on  a sunny summer day. With the Bronze Goddess Summer Waves Salt Spray by Estée Lauder for the hair, I create the beach waves look without salt water or lying at the sea. For a gentle effect, I spray the salt spray onto dry hair. In order to create a more intense Beachwaves look, I recommend you to incorporate the spray into your hair before blow-dry. The great thing about the Bronze Goddess Summer Waves Salt Spray by Estée Lauder is the incomparable scent that I love so much.


Beautyblog Skin Care Hair Care Estée Lauder KLorane


There are also novelties by Klorane, cupuaçu butter is called the main ingredient in the new body care line. For gentle cleansing, the soap-free shower cream is also suitable for dry and very dry skin. The shower cream behaves like any other one and smells gently. After use, the skin is not dried out. Then I apply the light body milk, it absorbs quickly and does not fatigue.


Beautyblog Skin Care Hair Care Estée Lauder KLorane

Now to my feasting highlight on hot summer days – the Bronze Goddess Cooling Body Gelée by Estée Lauder. Again, I love the Bronze Goddess fragrance so much. It is suitable as a refreshing gel after sunbathing treatment as well as refreshment after a long day at the office.

skin care routine


The products of my current Skin Care routine are very diverse, even if it looks like a lot at first glance, it is not. To cleanse the skin I use the novelties from Clinique as well as the famous Glow Tonic from Pixi. Then I apply the Hydra Global Serum from Sisley. The care is followed by a light eye cream from Estée Lauder and the Moisturizing Gel Cream by Shiseido.


Clinique Blackhead Solutions 7 Day Deep Pore Cleanse & Scrub Review


The first step in the care process is to cleanse the skin. I use the Clinique Blackhead Solutions 7 Day Deep Pore Cleanse & Scrub. It’s a 3-in-1 product, it is a cleansing gel, peeling and mask in one. I use it in the morning and in the evening as a face wash with peeling effect. It contains salicylic acid and glucosamine, which eliminate dead skin cells, while silica, kaolinite and sugarcane extract help to remove dirt, oil and debris that clog pores and cause blackheads. I have been testing cleansing gel for a few weeks and will continue with it. It is very effective, does not dry out the skin and leaves no unpleasant feeling of tightness. The product is allergy tested and fragrance-free as usual for Clinique.


Clinique Blackhead Solutions Self-Heating Blackhead Extractor Review


For very persistent blackheads, the Clinique Blackhead Solutions Self-Heating Blackhead Extractor is helpful. A novel product that I have never tested before. The Clinique Blackhead Solutions Self-Heating Blackhead Extractor is applied to the cleansed skin and then the skin is moistened. Contact with water heats the mask-like texture and thus opens the pores. The skin is then massaged for about 30 seconds with the special rubber applicator. The dirt is removed so deep in the pores. I use this special treatment 1-2 times a week. Both products are not Acnegen.


Glow Tonic Pixi


The Glow Tonic by Pixi is an absolute bestseller. There is a reason for that, the tonic is very gentle to the skin and contains no alcohol. It is well known that alcohol dries out the skin and irritates the skin of many people. The Glow Tonic is the final cleansing step before applying my care products. The contained glycolic acid (5%) exfoliates. Ginseng improves blood circulation and stimulates, while aloe vera calms and moisturizes. I am very satisfied with the Glow Tonic and will continue to use it. It is important that you apply sunscreen when using a product containing glycolic acid.




The first care step is followed by a high-quality serum. The new Hydra-Global Serum from Sisley. The products of Sisley are characterized by their high active ingredient density, this is also the case with the Hydra-Global Serum. The yeast extract of the Blue Agave from Mexico reactivates the hyaluronic acid synthesis, filling the water reservoirs and padding the skin. The contained locust bean seed extract increases the content of hyaluronic acid in the epidermis. An extract of Japanese cedar buds keeps the suppleness of the skin, while the pansy extract promotes the circulation of water in the epidermis through the synthesis of aquaporins. Edelweiss extract reduces the water permeability of the skin and malachite increases the skin’s resistance to free radicals. Quite a lot of active ingredients as you can see. Now back to practical application.


Hydra-Global Serum


Sisley’s Hydra-Global Serum reactivates the natural hydration mechanisms of the skin to prevent the onset of aging from intense hydration. The serum feels very light on the skin – almost like water. It is very productive and absorbs quickly. Since it is oil-free and non-greasy, it is also suitable for oily and impure skin – just because you are getting older, the skin is not necessarily purer. The scent of sage, lavender and Maj0ran is very pleasant – especially in summer. The serum convinced me with its lightness and freshness. In addition, one quickly realizes that the skin has more moisture.


Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Cooling/Lifting Eye GelCreme


The right eye care is not always easy to find, often – so my experience – they are too rich for my age. Nevertheless, it is the case that the first small wrinkles develop in the eyes. Care is always the best precaution. The Estée Lauder Resilience Lift Cooling / Lifting Eye Gel Cream is a very light eye cream. Very important here too, it is not comedogen – so the pores are not blocked. It has a slightly cooling and refreshing effect and can be put in the fridge to enhance the effect. It supports collagen production and reduces puffiness and eye shadow. I apply the cream in the evening. She moves in quickly.


Shiseido Essential Energy Moisturizing Gel Cream


Finally a good moisturizer follows. The Shiseido Essential Energy Moisturizing Gel Cream is also a very light cream and is suitable for oily skin and combination skin. It is also not comedogenic.


Essential Energy Moisturizing Gel Cream Shiseido


I apply Shiseido Essential Energy Moisturizing Gel Cream in the morning and in the evening as the last step of my skin care routine to moisturize the skin. Since I tend to have oily skin, this cream is ideal.


Do you know some of the products? Which products do you use for your skin care routine?

Beautyblog Schweiz


The past month I tested some new products from different brands. Collistar figure care products, Garnier sunscreen products and a Yon-ka dry oil .




The Yon-Ka Huile Silhouette is a dry oil. It contains essential oils of cedar, cypress and rosemary, which are known for their slimming properties. The lipolytic oil of pink pepper should also help against cellulite. The oil can be simply sprayed on and showered in after showering. It smells pleasantly of essential oils. Since it is a dry oil, it does not leave excessive oil film. The skin feels soft after application.


UV Water Garnier


In recent weeks, the weather shows his sunny side. Of course, it is also important to have the right sunprotect product. I’m super happy with the new UV Water from Garnier. Often, sun creams are very greasy or oily, which does not bother me during a day at the beach. But in everyday life, I do not like that at all. The UV Water by Garnier, on the other hand, is easy to spray on and absorbs quickly without making the clothes sticking to the skin.


I also tested body care products from Collistar. One is the Pure Actives Anti-Stretching Concentrate Elastin + Hyaluronic Acid + Collagen from Collistar. Stretch marks once there, can not be magic away. It is therefore important to prevent it, especially during pregnancy. Once they are there, it is possible to improve and smooth the appearance of the skin. Massage the concentrate in the morning and evening on affected areas to care for the skin. The combined action with elastin, hyaluronic acid and collagen not only protects the physiological state of the precious proteins but also stimulates the production of new elastic fibers and supports the repair of the fiber n of the damaged connective tissue. A big plus with this product are the natural ingredients. The stretch strip concentrate contains natural ingredients and is without paraffins, mineral oils, PEG, silicones, dyes, alcohol and known allergens. I also tested the remodeling patches from Collistar. The patches are stuck on the clean skin and then remain on the skin for a maximum of 8 hours. At first you did not notice anything about the patches, then they become “warm”. Partly they burn on the skin, this is probably because the active ingredients start to work. After the application, at least I have the feeling that they are working.

Sisley Hair Rituel


Sisley recently launched their first hair care line. All the more I was pleased to test two of the products in the past few weeks. Ebelin, on the other hand, has launched new hairbrushes that do not just look pretty.


Sisley Hair Rituel serum


For me, testing a serum for hair & scalp was an absolute premier. The Sérum Revitalizant Fortifiant pour le cuir chevelu promotes the growth of thicker and denser hair. It contains minerals, vitamins, plant extracts and proteins that vitalize the hair root. It is a strengthening serum that enhances the hair’s resistance and preserves its natural color. The serum can be well massaged with the fingers into the scalp, it is a serum, so that the hair and the scalp are not getting oily. The serum smells very pleasant and of herbs. I like to let the serum work overnight and make myself a short head massage in the evening. Divide the hair into lots and work in the serum. Use it every 2 days as an intensive treatment over a month and afterwards twice a week. It does the hair and the scalp well, so I will continue using it.


Sisley hair rituel haarmaske


In the recent weeks, this great hair mask has become indispensable in my hair care routine. I use the Regenerating Mask of Hair Ritual by Sisley 1 – 2 times a week. It can be applied to the entire hair from the beginning and works for 10 minutes. Especially with this mask is that you can apply them not only into the lengths. Because most hair masks flatten the hair, but not the regenerating hair mask of Sisley. Both the serum and the hair mask contain a very high proportion of active ingredients, which make the products effective. After rinsing, the hair feels well cared for but not weighted. The combability improves and also the shine of the hair.


ebelin Haarbürste test


Now to the new ebelin hairbrushes which have moved in: The Massage Bamboo Brush, the Massage Bamboo Brush and the Styling Wooden Brush. Both the Massage  Bamboo Brush and the Massage Bamboo Brush are made of FSC certified bamboo. The styling wooden brush is made of beech wood. Not only care products are essential for beautiful hair, also the matching hairbrushes are important. This is especially true for the two massage brushes, because with regular use, the blood circulation, the growth and the health of the hair can be actively improved.


Which hair care products you could not live without?


Contains PR-Sampls


Today I would like to introduce you to some novelties for the beauty treatment at home,I’ve tested different facial masks. I tried masks by Glamglow, Clinique, Clarins, Garnier and Zoé.


Clinique face mask charcoal


The Clinique Clinique Purify Charcoal Clay Mask & Scrub combines a purifying mask with a scrub. The mask deeply cleanses the skin, after use it is cleared. The natural carbon from bamboo and kaolin clay remove pollutants and impurities. After the exposure time, moisten the face a little bit and in a circular motion exfoliate the skin and at the same time wash off the mask. The mask has a great effect on impure skin and reliably absorbs the dirt in the pores. The combination of mask and peeling I also find super handy. A great mask for those who like it easy, fast and uncomplicated.


Garnier schwarze Tuchmaske Clarins Instant Lift serum Maske


I also tested one mask from Clarins and one from Garnier. The black mask by Garnier SkinActive has a clarifying, moisturizing and pore-refining effect. It adapts well to your own face shape and has enough big cut-outs. The mask stays reliably in place. After application, the skin appears visibly clarified. The Super Restorative Instant Lift Serum Mask by Clarins cushions the skin. It’s the first mask I tested, which also includes the neck area. After application, the skin radiates and appears smoothed and padded with moisture.


Glamglow Gravitymud Firming Treatment Glittermask


Now to the mask, which has probably caused a sensation on Instagram and Co. The Glamglow Gravitymud Firming Treatment Glittermask. It’s a peel-off mask, so therefore no microplastic enters the sewage. The mask can be easily applied with the enclosed brush. Simply apply a thin layer and allow to dry for 20 – 30 minutes. I have not used peel-off masks for a while. Why? Many peel-off masks remain super annoying stick to the skin and can not be easily removed, yes, most of the time they still have to be washed off. Glamglow’s Glittermask is different. Also with this mask Glamglow convinces me with the incomparable quality. The mask can be easily removed.


Zoe Cleansing Gesichtsmaske

Zoé has two new masks. On the one hand the Zoé Cleansing pore refining mask with clay and the Zoé Cleansing clearing mask with clay. Both the pore-refining mask and the clarifying mask leave a matted and cleared skin. In comparison with other clay masks, however, these are stronger in texture but still easy to apply. They are small tubes, so they are good for trying. For impure skin certainly worth a test.
