Time to take care of our décolleté with LIERAC Laboratoires

It is a fact that we all as women worry and put a lot of effort in taking care of our face, but what about the skin around our neck and décolleté? The décolleté is one of the first place to reveal the signs of aging and very much on show but unfortunately often neglected. 
Thankfully Lierac Laboratories, based on the combined aesthetic lifting + injection techniques created a sculpting gel-cream for both the neck and décolleté area.
The star complex of Lift Integral injects molybdenum polyphenols into the skin for lifting, flavonoid purple tulip for density recovery and the Hyalu-3 complex, which has an abrasive effect on the surface and in the background.
A reconstructive peptide acts on both fibroblasts and skin lipids while improving the durability of the skin and enhancing its natural toning.
The skin immediately regains its density and its durability is enhanced and all with a extremely feminine cool scent with delicious floral notes of white freesia, sambac jasmine, wild berries and velvet sandalwood.
While Lierac Lift Integral Neck & Décolleté Sculpting Lift Gel Cream is a firming care product that helps to restore volume to the décolletage. Inspired by lifting aesthetic procedures, this product aims to compensate for the skin's natural slackening. Mahogany extract creates a lifting effect in the relaxed areas of the skin, while purple tulip improves the constitution, quality and structure of the skin. The décolleté area recovers the lost volume and firmness, for a beautifully youthful appearance.
I tried both products over a period of 4 weeks and I have noticed my skin around the décolleté and neck area definetely feel firmer, more lifted and also a lot smoother. You really feel it from the first application that skin is tighter and comfortable. The cream-gel texture feels pleasant and fresh on skin with extracts from tulip and mahogany lift and firm skin. The Hyalu-3 concentrate provides an anti-ageing effect and freesia and jasmine sambac make for a delightful aroma.






 

Carry the Merry!

Nothing marks the beginning of the festive season as much as the return of the Starbucks Red Cups and the delicious Holiday drinks that take us into the happy pre-Christmas mood. The festive favorites Toffee Nut Latte and Gingerbread Latte are available again, and for the first time also as a vegan variant. As a brand new Holiday drink, the Truffle Deluxe Hot Chocolate enchants us. Yummy!


Kerstin Goutier-Sauer, Marketing Manager Starbucks Switzerland & Austria, says: 

“Our Red Cups have become synonymous with the festive season and we hope that customers will feel this Christmas spirit from the first sip. We look forward to offering a lot more great merchandise in addition to our festive favorites and a color changing reusable Red Cup for the Christmas season. A glittering tumbler or a sweet mug are always a wonderful gift idea. For coffee lovers, thanks to this year's Wholebean Christmas Blend you can take the soothing scents and pure Christmas feeling home."

John Frieda new Volume Lift

John Frieda presents Volume Lift an ultra-light formula  hair and styling range to give body and volume to thin hair from the 1st use.
Optimism does us good! By cultivating positive thoughts and good mood, we can face challenges more easily  of our daily life: we radiate energy, courage, happiness and confidence, and in the end, it makes us more efficient.
John Frieda® Volume Lift energizes your hair - and your mood. Thin, flat hair becomes strong and soft, while giving it suppleness and volume. The resplendent shape of your hair will have a positive effect on your mood.
The care and styling products of the new John Frieda® Volume Lift range have been specially created to meet the needs of thin, flat hair. Shampoo, conditioner and spray treatment detangle and condition the hair, preparing it in the best way to hairstyles with wonderful volume. The dry shampoo, the mousse, hair spray and root booster give hair significantly more body and volume. Ultra light formulas with Air-Silk technology give the hair softness, suppleness and rebound without weighing them down. For a volume that feels as much as it can be seen.



„Thin hair is very vulnerable and brushing, coloring and
successive hairstyles quickly damage them. »Most care products
 weighs down the hair fiber, which does not help thin hair
which become even weaker and flat. They are also complicated to
style: when trying to give volume to thin hair with
bad products, we get a frozen effect that is not natural. The
Volume Lift range solves this problem thanks to its innovative 
and ultra light formulas and that detangles, nourishes and styles hair without 
becoming heavier. Thin hair then takes on a beautiful natural volume. "
Andreas Wild, John Frieda® Senior Stylist


I had the oppurtunity to try the new Volume Lift range and I was really happy with the results. The new volume lift products made my haircare routine much easier. The shampoo leaves my hair full and light at the same time with a fresh and clean fragrance. Hair really felt amazing, not greasy and the volume lasted for days! My absolute favorite product out of the range as to be the Volumizing Hairspray. It made styling really easy and I like the lift it gave to my hair. The scent is also amazing and for me a true must-have product!
If you need a real volume boost you will love the Volume Lift Root Boosting Thickening Spray, it boosts hair from the roots to create lightweight lift and lasting volume with added heat protection.

Caudalie new Resveratrol Lift with Vegan Collagen Booster

In women over 40, collagen and Hyaluronic acid production strongly decreases. Mathilde Thomas, who is always looking for the the most effective and natural solutions possible decided to continue working with the renowned Harvard Medical School and Dr. David Sinclar.
He was named from Time Magazine as "Guru of Longevity" and he is one of the greatest specialists in the world in fighting aging processes.
While generally in cosmetic products collagen of animal origin is used, Caudalie consciously choosed a vegan collagen booster to protect both skin and the environment.
Caudalie and Harvard Medical School jointly determined that the existing resveratrol + hyaluronic acid patent is twice as effective as retinol in the natural production of collagen. They decided to go one step further and to test an innovative combination of resveratrol + hyaluronic acid + vegan collagen booster. Together they applied for a new exclusive patent (FR 1555116).


Vegan Collagen Booster: firms and works at the same time on all layers of the skin
Natural Hyaluronic Acid: fills from within back on.
Resveratrol from the vines:Stimulates activity of the proteins for the youthfulness of the skin
The results are impressive: 5x more natural collagen production and 2x more hyaluronic acid production for firmer, plumper and visibly younger looking skin. A new patent has been created.

Thanks to the natural and sensory texture of the skin-thickening cashmere cream, the skin feels velvety soft, not greasy and extremely pleasant to the touch. A real cashmere feeling for the skin that also prevents premature aging in a natural way.


I had the pleasure to test the entire range and I was positively impressed. The new Resveratrol Lift goes to work on wrinkles and firming skin thanks to the effectiveness of its vegan collagen booster. 
Thanks to its patented combination of resveratrol, hyaluronic acid and vegan collagen booster, the Firming Cashmere Cream really corrects wrinkles, firms and replumps the skin. Face looks smoother, firmer and younger!

Composed with more than 97% natural origin and sensorial ingredients, this cream rich in phospholipids is as soft as cashmere on the skin. Skin is also left lightly fragranced with notes of basil, lemongrass, chamomile, thyme and orange blossom. The Resveratrol Lift Instant Firming Serum for me is an absolute must-have as it goes to work on restoring the complexion to a more youthful appearance. The serum contains the highest concentration of resveratrol as well as the patented complex of hyaluronic acid and vegan collagen reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while smoothing the contours. My favourite product from the range has to be the Firming Eye Gel Cream, thanks to its formula enriched with quinoa extracts helps fighting the signs of aging. Eyes look younger and fresher.

John Frieda® Highlight Refresh & Shine for blonde hair

Blonde is never trivial. For a woman, blonde is a strong signature. It can be sexy, trendy, powerful or even youthful. A well-groomed blonde that sparkles in the sun is as bewitching as the reflections of light dancing on the water. Whether it's natural, dyed, or bleached: blonde hair says a lot about you.

John Frieda® now reveals this dimension of your personality in its most beautiful and vibrant facets. The new Highlight Refresh & Shine range reinforces natural and colored reflections and intensifies their radiance. It transforms dull and tired blondes into a multidimensional blonde shining with light. The result: hair that's soft, natural and rich in facets.

Avocado oil deeply hydrates hair and makes it softer, while light reflecting agents give it a wonderfully natural, multidimensional shine. For a luminous, nuanced and fascinating blonde, as rich as your personality.
