Some weeks ago I enjoyed a beauty treatment at La Prarie Oberpollinger Munich which was marvellous, (I’ll come back to that later) where I discovered the La Prarie Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Series.
It was a total game changer for my skin. I felt so hydrated and good in my skin. Not only La Prarie found its way into my morning beauty routine.
I start my day pretty simple. After getting up I’m cleaning my skin with the Bioderma Hydrabio (get it here). I like this product because it contains 4 phases in one – a perfect morning companion, means: It’s quick and easy to use. This genius liquid combines:
- Facial Toner
- Make-up Remover
- Eye make-up remover
It’s without alcohol, parabens, and there is no need to wash your face after. I’m applying it with a cotton ball. Simple.
Tipp: In Summer I like to store it in the fridge so it gives you a refreshing and cool start.
Now I’m applying one of my new products of the La Prarie Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Collection.
The Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Emulsion has a very soft texture which reduces first signs of fine lines, dullness, dryness, makes you look fresh and most important it hydrates the skin deeply. I appreciate the light formula as I really don’t like too heavy skin products. On top, it comes in a pump dispenser.
Tipp: Try buying dispensers! As I recently learned from a biochemist, products which come in pots will not keep their “good stuff” longer than 4 weeks once you’ve opened them. The oxygen decomposes the ingredients. In case your product isn’t available in dispenser-form store your skincare in the fridge.
Next step: the La Prarie Cellular Swiss Crystal Serum. It has a little cooling effect. The formula is recapturing and maintaining the look of younger skin. It helps the skin to remove toxins and improves the delivery of nutrients. I don’t use the serum on a daily basis, just from time to time if I feel it. Maybe for Summer, I’ll only use the serum- I’ll give it a try and let you know.
Last but not least The La Prarie Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Transforming Creme. I discovered this gem by accident. After my treatment at La Prarie, I’ve got spoiled with a little fresh up. The ones who know me know the problems I have with make-up. I’ve tried a lot nothing worked. Till now I used the VICHY Idéalia Medium BB Creme which is not half bad especially in Summer it gives you a nice glow.
Heading back to the La Prarie Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Transforming Creme. The first look in the mirror was breathtaking. I never had such a flawless and harmonious skin. It’s moisturizing and it balanced my rose skin tone perfectly. The combination of colour and sunscreen, it has SPF 30, makes it a perfect everyday companion. I don’t know how I could ever have lived without it. You can choose from 4 different shades. I’m using No. 20 (reduces redness). I like the fact that you need very less product and have a high impact. Blend in – ready. A complexion brush is included.
Tipp: Clean your brushes after every use! Especially when it comes up to make up brushes. Who wants to have a bacteria polluted brush in the face? – Right nobody.
After a busy day, I prefer to remove my makeup asap. If I’m extremely lazy I use makeup remover pads. But I’ll try not to use them too often.
For a deeper cleanse I’m using the Lavera 2-in-1 cleansing lotion. Again a product which combines 2 things in one: cleanse and skin care. I’m not a big fan of an hourly procedure, especially not after a long day, which makes also this product perfect for me. The containing bio-oils leave my skin nourished and soft. The Lavera face wash is a natural cosmetic product which is vegan and free from every cosmetical “baddie”. The smell is reluctant but nice and it is absolutely a bargain!
Tipp: Of course, you can use the Bioderma Hydrabio as well as the Lavera 2-in1 cleansing lotion in your morning or evening routine.
For my skins bedtime treat, I’m using the Artistry Hydra-V Nourishing Gel Cream by Amway. It has the perfect light jelly formula. Normally, I’m not a big fan of night creams mostly they are too heavy and don’t absorb fast enough for my taste.
I discovered this brand at a press event and I was surprised how good it worked together with my skin. I would absolutely recommend it to everybody who has a problem with dehydrated skin or likes lightweight products as I do. The smell is fresh and the texture is light and soft.
Tipp: It’s the perfect companion for the Summer. It delivers the freshness and hydration u need after a long day at the beach.
