Dr. Hauschka new Discovery Kits

For all those who think that good things come in small packages Dr. Hauschka gives the Discovery Kits a new and more sustainable look. They no longer come in a tin box, but in a packaging made from 100% recycled cardboard. Made with great care, they are treated with as much attention as the original formats and carefully packed by hand. The kits make for nice gifts ideas and are a great way to discover the Dr. Hauschka universe!
In addition, the handy travel sized slip easily into the purse or cabin luggage. But it is only by using them that the products reveal their true virtues, as a refreshing treatment or a regenerating treatment for a weekend excursion or small getaways. 

"Effective & Essential"

We can not take back time, but we can support skin's vitality, stimulate it and 
maintain its hydration so that it is firmer. 
The "effective & essential" kit is ideal for discovering the 
regenerating Dr. Hauschka treatment.
 The set now contains the Restructuring Mask with a smoothing and toning effect. 

"Pure & Fine Skin"

The "pure & fine skin" kit contains everything needed to treat skin prone to impurities. 
The basic care combined with intensive care allows the skin to regain its natural balance. 
That's why this box contains two Dr. Hauschka masks. 
We recommend the Revitalizing Mask in addition to the Cleansing Mask. 
The result? The skin texture is refined and complexion is more even.


 All Dr. Hauschka's favorite products in a box. 
Whether for a weekend getaway, an overnight stay at a friend's house or 
simply to discover 
the Dr. Hauschka's healing ritual, the "must-have" kit
 is always the perfect companion. 
In addition to the samples, it contains the very popular Lip Care Stick.

"Night & Active"

Once the day is over, when our mind is at rest, nighttime processes take place in our body. 
The skin takes advantage of our hours of sleep to renew itself. 
Since during the night skin does not need protection against
 external aggressions to regenerate, 
Dr. Hauschka relies on a non-greasy night care. 
The "night & active" kit is therefore perfect for discovering this concept. 
And if the skin pulls a little at first when you use this type of non-greasy care, 
we recommend the Revitalizing Mask. 
Clean the skin the Cleansing Milk before bedtime, 
then apply a small amount of Night Toning Serum.

Discovery Kits
are available now

7 secrets behind the Starbucks Nitro Cold Brew

This week I was invited by Starbucks to a special tasting event of the Nitro Cold Brew.
It's no secret that the Starbucks Nitro Cold Brew has become a favorite drinks overnight. But why is that? Here are 7 secrets behind the Nitro Cold Brew:

1. It is poured vertically

There's a reason that the Nitro Cold Brew is poured into a mug that's just standing on the counter. In contrast, beer is held diagonally under the tap to prevent the formation of air bubbles - we want to have these "bubbles"!

2. It is served in a transparent cup

The Nitro Cold Brew is always served in a transparent cup, so that the cascade of nitrogen "Bubbles" is particularly good.

3. No ice

The Nitro Cold Brew is served without ice to further enhance the velvety soft texture.

4. Low calories

When people try Nitro Cold Brew, they love the creamy taste and assume that it's high in calories. But that's not true! A tall Nitro Cold Brew has only 4 calories and 0 grams of sugar.

5. It is unsweetened

The Nitro Cold Brew is served unsweetened to highlight the flavour created by the Cold Brew process. If you still want to enjoy the Nitro Cold Brew a bit sweeter, you can fall back on the new variants with cold milk foam.

6. It has no contact with hot water

Cold Brew is made using a special brewing method, whereby coffee does not come into contact with hot water. Cold water and time replace the heat to extract the flavour.

7. It is slowly steeped

The Nitro Cold Brew is handcrafted. The coffee is gently and slowly steeped  in cold water for more than 20 hours.


The Nitro Cold Brew is poured for this new variant 
over a velvety, cold milk foam. 
This creates a layer where coffee and foam meet.


Like the Nitro Cold Brew with Cold Foam, the Nitro Cold Brew is poured
 over cold milk foam even with this fine novelty. 
Then soft caramel is added to ensure a slightly sweet finish.


Festival season is here and Manhattan is making sure we will look the part! Festivals of course are like giant playgrounds for trendsetters, the perfect style for dancing at every festival? Glamchella!

Collistar : Perfect Body News!

Summer body goals? Collistar is giving once again three new products to help us get that perfect body in time for Summer! The products are the Toning Talasso-Scrub, the Draining Gel-Mud and the Pure Actives Anti Stretch Marks Concentrate.
We all know of course Collistar's famous Talasso Scrub and the new Toning Talasso Scrub with regenerating and exfoliating essentials oils and Sardinian Juniper extract combines the benefits of thalassotherapy and aromatherapy. It is really much more than just a scrub it is a true must-have body treatment!
It smoothes and regenerates skin thanks to mix of salts and Sardinian Fleur de Sal. While on the other hand extract of Juniper tones and helps to relieve tiredness. Thanks to Mastic, Sesame and Grape Seed oils it also provides a great deal of hydration. The mix of ultra-pure natural essential oils reminding us of Mediterranean flavours also boost our energy and mood. All it is a winner for me as it is a great multi-purpose product!
The researchers at Collistar are giving us the new Draining Gel-Mud that combines the benefits of an anticellulite mud with the extraordinary efficacy of Slim-Drone technology. This is a futuristic technology that goes to strike at the heart of adipose cells. It can be used everyday and thanks to the no-rinse, gel-mud texture that is instantly absorbed you can get dressed straight away.
Last but not least the new Anti Stretch Marks Concentrate with Elastin and Hyaluronic Acid + Collagen is going to be your best ally in treating stretch marks. The three Pure Actives contained in this concentrate fight contrast the loss of skin elasticity and really help to improve the appearance of existing stretch marks. With continuous use it firms and strengthenens skin helping to reduce the appeareance of new stretch marks.

L'Occitane presents : Aqua Réotier

Not long ago I was invited by L'Occitane to discover their new range Aqua Réotier. For centuries a natural water spring has been running in the heart of Provence mountains, collecting rich mineral on the way and rising up at the Réotier Spring. This incredible water thanks to its high calcium content can really help skin to maintain its hydration level and also retain moisture.
The experts at L'Occitane have added hyaluronic acid to this powerful water to give us an ultra-hydrating range which for me is just perfect for this time of the year.
If you like me you love to swap your Winter routine for a lighter and fresher one come Spring/Summer believe me when I say you will fall in love with Aqua Réotier. My routine consisted of three products from the range: the Water Gel Cleanser, the Moisture Prep Essence and the Ultra-Thirst Quenching Gel. It is a a real pleasure splashing this Water Gel Cleanser on my face as it really feels fresh as well as invigorating skin. The cool gel transforms into a light lather lifting away impurities and dirt while leaving skin soft and supple.
Next step was the Moisture Prep Essence which is a pre-moisturer that prepares skin with a first layer of moisture while reinforcing the hydrating properties of the Réotier routine. It feels wonderful on skin as it is very light-weight and fresh. The last step of my Réotier is of course applying my Ultra Thirst-Quenching Gel. It is once again very refreshing and cooling which for me is a total bonus in warm seasons! It is enriched with Réotier water and Hyaluronic Acid recharging skin with water while leaving it glowing with hydration.

The exctract Edulis Cellular Water an hydration activator helps store water in all the layers of skin, blocking it and releasing it for continous hydration. So definetely no more thirsty skin!

Let's step into Spring!

Warmer weather is finally here so that can only mean one thing: transitioning your wardrobe into Spring! The weather is surely warmer but definetely not settled so to dress appropriately for this time of the year can be quite tricky. A good transitional piece for Spring for me is this H&M duster coat which is just the right weight for those not-so-warm days and the red/orange colour just gives me good vibes! Nothing screams Spring like a fresh pair of crisp white trainers and mine are brand new from the Camila Cabello collection for Skechers. They are not only super comfy but also trendy and stylish! I am giving my look a boost with some new aviator style sunglasses from Cerjo. For me they are true must-have and will never go out of fashion!
