Monthly favorites in October “Skin Care”

Today I show you my monthly favorites in the category “skin care”, I tested once again great products of well-known brands and a pretty new brand for me.


Monatsfavoriten Oktober 2010-min


I tested new products by Sisley, Estée Lauder, Yves Rocher and The Body Shop. Two products containing active ingredients of roses.


The Body Shop – Chinese Ginseng & Rice Clarifying Powder Wash


The Body Shop - Chinese Ginseng & Rice Clarifying Powder Wash


The Body Shop  Chinese Ginseng & Rice Clarifying Powder Wash contains Chinese rice and gins extract as well as biological community trade sesame seed oil from Nicaragua. Mix it with water and it’s ready to peel the skin. You can adjust the peeling effect with the mixing ratio of powder and water. In addition, you can use this product for example: to travel easily in your hand luggage, since no liquid. After application, the skin is more pure and gentle. The Peeling Powder Wash is 100% vegan.


The Body Shop – British Rose Toner


The Body Shop - British Rose Toner


For that I love a product also the scent is very important to me. The British rose toner of The Body Shop already points here in full line. I like the natural rose scent very much. The toner is produced without alcohol and contains genuine rose petals as well as biological Community Trade Aloe Vera from Mexico. Alcohol unfortunately can dry out the skin, so I am always happy about products that can do without it. I give the toner after cleaning the skin on a cotton pad to clear the skin.


Sisley – Sisley Black Rose Skin Infusion Cream


Sisley - Baume-en-eau é la rose noire


Special at Sisley is the fact that the products are containing a high proportion of active substances. This makes them particularly effective. The Sisley Sisley Black Rose Skin Infusion Cream combines active ingredients from the Black Rose, Maize- and Alpine Rose, combined with extracts of the lantern flower, the trichelum and hibiscus as well as nourishing oils. The Sisley Black Rose Skin Infusion Cream smells wonderful. The cream is easy to apply and is pleasant to the skin, so not greasy or sticky, but it has a nice creamy texture. Apply morning and evening on the cleansed skin. The skin is intensively moisturized and thereby smoothed. Definitely my new favorite cream.


Esteé Lauder – Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrat Matrix


Esteé Lauder - Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix


I still used the Advanced Night Repair Serum by Estée Lauder every day. Now there is a new eye care the Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrat Matrix. The eye care contains a mix of viscoelastic, i. firmer and thicker polymers and innovative 360º matrix technology. Now this sounds pretty complex. The goal is to cushion the micro-movements of the eyes, because the researchers of Estée Lauder have found that quite a few small movements of the eye cause the eye wrinkles to a large extent. This is where the Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix is ​​designed to counteract. The care is applied by the help of a drop-shaped applicator. To put three points under the eye and massage. Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrat Matrix by Estée Lauder has a light texture to apply and absorbs quickly. I use it in the morning and in the evening.


Yves Rocher – Elixir Jeunesse Express Detox Mask


Yves Rocher - Elixir Jeunesse Express Detox Maske


The Elixir Jeunesse Express Detox mask by Yves Rocher also smells wonderful, if you already know the Elixir de Jeunesse, the mask smells just so, wonderfully fresh. The texture is a mixture of cream and gel. On the skin, the mask provides moisture. After the exposure time of 5 – 10 minutes remove the mask with a cosmetic towel. It does not have to be washed away. Because the mask is refreshing, it is just the right thing after a long and strenuous work day. The formulation contains no mineral oil, no silicones, dyes or parabene. I use the mask once a week.


These were my favorites in the month of October. Do you already know some of the products?
