Re-opening of the Zürich Niederdorf LUSH store

Following the closure for a few days due to refurbishment the Zurich Niederdorf Lush store is ready to re-open for business on Friday, May 2nd 2014 at 12 pm with the motto "Fresh handmade cosmetics".
For the reopening Lush has some surprises in store and customers will be able to hand make some of the famous Lush products themselves.
A great news for Lush fans, during the opening days, a new Lush product will be sold first and exclusively in the Zurich Niederdorf store and then it will be sold in all other Lush stores in Switzerland.
One more good reason to visit the store!

Sebastian Professional Drynamic Dry Shampoo

This is what I call a must have product! Sebastian Professional Drynamic Dry Shampoo instantly refreshes your hair in between washes but not only with its cleansing properties it absorbs excess oil at your roots to give hair a boost.
The Recharge technology  improves manageability for easier styling.
It is realky a multitasker, it enhances body, volume and texture. Hair is revitalized and  looks fab.
Sebastian Professional Drynamic Dry Shampoo was used during Fashion Weeks around the world to restyle and reshape models' hair. It is really a must have! It is not chalky and not powdery, and the secret lies in the particles , usually in most dry shampoos they are squared but in the Drynamic they are spherical.
This allow them to sit together better and makes the hair styling much easier.
Hair can be transformed quickly giving you the oppurtunity to look very now, by changing the form and the texture.
It smells amazing and brushes very easily without leaving any residues.
I really recommend it!

L'Occitane new Limited Edition "Frisson de Verveine"

One of the many herbs that grow in the Provence, Verveine in French or Verbena in English, has a lemony freshness that revives the body and the mind.
When baskets are pilles high with freshly harvested green verbena leaves, its distinctive fragrance fills the air around the markets.
The new L'Occitane "Frisson de Verveine" Eau de Toilette is perfect for sensation of freshness with notes of citrus, bergamot, cucumber, musk, cedarwood and of course Verbena.
 In Summer here in Switzerland, when we need to cool down sometimes we go and take a dip into a nearby river and this is the feeling that the new "Frisson de Verveine" wants to evoke.
It invites the citrus fruit and the freshly cut leaves to immerge themselves into the river.
The bottle is clear and pure as the river water, with a tinted green shade.
From the same range also: cooling body gel, refreshing body mist, ice gel for arms and feet, bath salts, shower gel and hand cream gel.
The Limited Edition "Frisson de Verveine" range will be available in Switzerland from July 2014.

LA ROCHE-POSAY Pigmentclar Serum

La Roche-Posay Pigmentclar intensive dark spot correcting serum offers a global correcting approach to even out the complexion.
The serum is highly concentrated in LHA offers a gentle surface exfoliation to quickly unify the complexion.
The powerful anti-dark spot complex of ( Phe-Resorcinol +Ginkgo +Ferulic Acid) significantly reduces dark spots and pigment irregularities.
As I have already mentioned coming Summer in the last few years have been suffering with some dark spots appearing on my face, so I have learned my lesson and now I always protect my skin from the sun with a SPF cream.
This is the main thing when dealing with dark spots, I would suggest a minum of SPF 15 during the day but I personally would go as high as SPF 45 or 50 during the Summer months.
I am planning a post on sun protection so stay tuned!
Having said that, this is a great product to help fading existing dark spots and prevent future ones.
Already after the first two weeks of use my complexion was definetely more uniform, and my skin tone more luminous.
I have noticed getting into the 4 weeks of use, the appearance of my dark spots and pigment irregularities were visibly reduced.
When treating dark spots is important to understand that it is quite a long process, I mean you need to be constant in using the serum , I personally use it twice a day, keep wearing your SPF protection whenever in the sun and have patience, as dark spots will not disappear overnight.
This serum I think is a great product for treating dark spots and help in making them disappear.
The texture is fluid, light and hydrating.
The  serum is paraben-free and suitable for sensitive skin.
