Ultimate Winter Glow with the new Foreo Luna Mini 3

With the global launch of the LUNA mini 3 last summer and last October in Switzerland, the Swedish skintech brand FOREO has once again demonstrated that it continues to push the boundaries of innovation to bring pioneering products to the market. The app-activated, trackable LUNA mini 3 with exclusive "Glow Boost" mode is the biggest innovation of the successful brand so far. This smart device has everything you need to improve your skin care routine and help you achieve the ultimate winter glow.
Dalia Fernandez, FOREO's Product Development Manager says:

"Great skin is full in trend and there's nothing like a radiant complexion to boost your confidence, but when the colder months begin, the weather changes and this can have devastating effects on the complexion. The LUNA mini 3 helps people achieve a long-lasting glow over the winter and beyond."

 Skin is a creature of habit, skin likes texture, and so sudden changes in temperature and humidity are not particularly beneficial to skin. The dermatologist Dr. Shari Marchbein emphasizes that breakouts are also due to behavioral changes, as routines and internal environmental factors first have to adapt to the colder weather.
She identifies hot showers and central heating as two of the worst culprits. Although you can hardly imagine a long, cold winter without any of the above, there are still some ways to achieve a consistent routine and to minimize any interference while the skin adapts to the changing weather.
Fernandez continues:

"The LUNA mini 3 is FOREO's most innovative product so far and was eagerly awaited.The latest addition to the iconic LUNA product line is sold every 3 seconds around the world and is loved by celebrities like Chrissy Teigen. We developed the world's first trackable device, but also developed an innovative "Glow Boost" mode that achieves a perfect complexion for radiant skin throughout the year and in all weather conditions in just 30 seconds. "

For the ultimate winter glow, you can buy the LUNA mini 3 at www.foreo.com/luna-mini-3, Globus, Marionnaud or on perfecthair.ch for CHF 189.

Christmas time at Starbucks

For Starbucks the Holidayseason gives you  a reason to rest, look back on traditions and spread the pre-Christmas mood with freshly brewed coffee. As for the past 35 years, Starbucks will once again present the limited edition Starbucks Christmas Blend and its slightly younger brother, the Christmas Blend Espresso Roast, available at all Starbucks Coffee Houses in Switzerland.

A journey through the Starbucks Christmas Blend story

When the company operated only five small shops in Seattle in 1984, the Christmas Blend was designed as a gift for Starbucks guests. The launch of this particular coffee blend was an immediate success. Since then, Starbucks has been re-launching the Christmas Blend blend every year. In 2010, Starbucks also launched a dark roast of Christmas Blends - the Christmas Blend Espresso Roast for that extra something. Each vintage is unique - and just like wine, the flavors of the coffee blend can vary in every season.

Christmas Blend

For 35 years, Starbucks customers have been celebrating Christmas with the Christmas Blend, a full-bodied coffee blend with multi-year ripened Sumatra beans and vibrant Latin American and mild Indonesian coffee beans. The spicy and fine sweet taste is rounded off by delicate notes of orange, nutmeg, cinnamon and clove and offers coffee lovers a festive pampering aroma, so that with each single sip good memories come up.

Christmas Blend Espresso Roast

Inspired by the flavors of Christmas Blends and our beloved Starbucks Espresso Roast, this seasonal coffee blend is tailored for espresso lovers. The coffee blend impresses with its unique roasting profile, which harmoniously combines aromas of cedar and herbal spices with a rich caramel sweetness. Delicate notes of ginger, orange, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and caramelized sugar complete the taste experience.

What would be the Christmas season without gingerbread? 
For people around the world, the Gingerbread Latte heralds the Christmas season. 
The sweet, slightly spicy taste of gingerbread mixes with espresso and milk froth,
 topped with gingerbread-flavored whipped cream and a waffle topping. 
The Gingerbread Latte is available as a hot latte or as a refreshing Frappucchino.
