John Frieda Rehab + Revive range

Individual styling routines are wonderful but unfortunately can leave their mark on the hair : frequent brushings, the intense heat of the hair dryer, straightener or curling iron, as well as bleaching and dyeing, can cause serious and noticeable damage to the hair over time. For many women, to customize their hairstyle is an important part of their identity. At the same time, everyone wants to have beautiful, soft and well-groomed hair: they are a symbol of vitality as well as giving confidence. However, having styled and healthy hair often seems incompatible - until now. 

With its new line of products Rehab + Revive which repairs in depth, John Frieda® offers the solution and a complete care for extremely damaged hair. Shampoo, conditioner and balm mask restore vitality to tired and stressed hair, from roots to ends. In this way, Rehab + Revive sets the stage for a pleasant carefree feeling. The new haircare line focuses on a natural ingredient, honey, which is known for its antioxidant and restorative properties. This liquid gold works as a natural moisturiser, which provides long-lasting hydration to the hair to the core. Thanks to its nourishing oil-based formula, the treatment trio restores shine, elasticity and strength to fragile hair which have lost their vigor.

 I had the oppurtunity to try The John Frieda Rehab + Revive collection and I was really impressed by the products.  The shampoo as well as the conditioner repair and deeply nourishes your hair, lending damaged hair a strong, healthy finish. Enriched with natural extracts such as sumptuos honey, stressed hair is really transformed into supple, healthy hair that’s full of life. In addition to the honey smell, the shampoo surrounds a fresh, sweet scent. Even hours after washing, the hair will smell of this fresh scent with the delicious honey note. I am a huge fan of the balm mask as it gives intensive repair & nourishing deep care to restore its strength to extremely damaged hair. It provides  overstressed hair with an additional dose of moisture and thus ensures softness and shine. The range really transforms strained hair into bold, healthy-looking hair, full of life.

Spring is here! Time to think about getting back in shape and just feel better about ourselves. Caudalie is coming to our rescue with a programme in four steps to firm and tone skin whilst also offering a unique moment of well-being. Let's enjoy the experience of Vinothérapie treatment in the comfort of your own house.

Between the age od 28 and 54, skin firmness decreases by 27% mainly affecting the arms, bust, stomach and buttocks. The new Vinosculpt Body Cream enriched in anti-oxidant grapeseed polyphenols and firming iris extract acts simultaneously on those 4 key areas of the body: arms, chest, stomach and buttocks for firmer skin from the first month of use. Skin is smooth, toned and visibly firmer. Organic shea butter maintains the skin's hydration, an essential element for elastin suppleness. On application the whipped and creamy texture is easily absorbed without leaving greasy residues. Skin is lightly scented with delicate notes of orange blossom. 

Caudalie Vinosculpt Body Cream is suitable for all skin types, from normal to dry and even the most sensitive skin. As with all Caudalie products, no parabens, phenoxyethanol, phtalates, mineral oils or ingredients of animal origin are used.

The first step in your Caudalie Slimming programme starts with exfoliating with the Crushed Cabernet Scrub 2-3 times a week. The Crushed Cabernet Scrub is Caudalie's signature Vinothérapie Spa scrub. Enriched with crushed grape-seeds and 6 essential oils, this natural body exfoliator leaves the skin smooth, soft and nourished, preparing it for the next stages of your body routine. Enjoy the pleasure of a professional Vinothérapie treatment at home. The energizing and invigorating notes are naturally derived from lemon, lemongrass, rosemary and juniper berries.

The second step in your routine is of course to firm once a day in the morning with the new Lift & Body Cream Vinosculpt. It acts simultaneously on 4 key zones of the body for firmer skin from the first month. Apply daily using circular massage movements for skin that appears smoother and a resculpted figure. Then is time to tone with the Countouring Solution. This dry body oil firms and smooths the skin, for a more defined silhouette and radiant skin. Its formula helps to deeply drain excess fat, refine the silhouette and reduce the appearance of orange peel dimpling by activating drainage. The skin is more toned and smoother. Its natural scent of lemon, lemongrass, rosemary and juniper berries envelop you with energizing and invigorating notes.

Give  your slimming regimen a boost with the Organic Herbal Tea. The Draining Organic Herbal Teas are a tasty blend of five beneficial organic plants: cinnamon, blueberry, red vine, sweet orange peel and blackcurrant. Created exclusively for the Herbal Tearoom at the Vinothérapie Spa, these delicious herbal teas are the perfect slimming aid, helping eliminate water and toxins.Cinnamon adds a kick to the infusion before giving way to more delicate aromas. To complement your slimming program to the max, steep the herbal tea in water, hot or cold, garnish with a splash of lemon juice or slices of orange. It’s delicious to drink throughout the day!

GLOBUS: Green is the hope

Welcome home. We are all spending a lot of time between our own four walls right now. But your home should be more than just a replacement for your office but rather a place of wellbeing, for comfort, for moments of reflection and joy. At Globus there are inspiring and beautiful things for the home.

The Copenhagen label FERM LIVING, for example, creates cozy atmospheres with their products. At RINA MENARDI, every single piece of earthenware is handmade. Your ceramic convinces with simple lines, shaped by nature and kept in simple colors. And NASON MORETTI's glasses are almost too good to drink from. They look like little works of art. Speaking of art, the products from HAY - such as the knot - or the table lamp from FONTANA ARTE could actually be in a design museum. 

Fresh, so fresh! A change is needed. New napkins, tablecloths and table runners from the GLOBUS own brand made of 100% linen provide a fresh kick in the most beautiful colors. For the nose there are floral scents in the form of scented candles from FORNASETTI or as diffusers from LOCHERBER or L'OBJET. Not only do they smell good, they are also decorative. The cleaner from KINFILL is also pretty to look at and good for our planet - the concentrate is 100% biodegradable.

DOSENBACH: Reopening at Shopville Zürich

For its reopening in spring, Dosenbach is dressing up properly and is surprising with a new shopping experience. Anyone who thinks they know Dosenbach at ShopVille in Zurich is mistaken. Even if you have walked past the store in the Bahnhofspassage countless times while commuting or traveling - or have already been there - you definitely do not know this Dosenbach yet. Despite the Corona crisis, Dosenbach continues to invest in the modernization of its sales outlets and has redesigned and rebuilt its shop at Zurich train station according to the most modern shop construction principles. By the way, the new shop has opened its doors on Wednesday, March 17th, 2021. Come by! 
 An important aspect of the new store concept is to merge Dosenbach's online and offline offerings and thereby always provide customers with an optimal shopping experience: those who sho online should also find themselves in the store  - and vice versa. DOSENBACH is thus investing sustainably in the digitization of its stationary business. For this purpose, the new shop in ShopVille also offers an Online Exclusive range, which represents part of the online offer in the shop. The total sales area in the ShopVille is very generous at 750 square meters. The latest shoe trends and sporting goods can be optimally presented.

We have already announced it. At modissa, the lockdown time was used creatively. Today they present: DAS STUDIO.
Located on the 2nd floor at Bahnhofstrasse 74, you can find NEW designer labels such as 3.1 Philipp Lim, Proenza Schouler White Label and Mara Hoffman.

From summer dresses to athleisure wear to designer pieces, it's all in. Whether international cult objects such as the Autry sneakers from Texas, exclusive designer fashion from 3.1 Philipp Lim or wonderfully relaxed items from Proenza Schouler White Label or Soeur.

But fashion can do (infinitely) much more. Mara Hofmann shows the way: The New York designer uses recycled and environmentally friendly materials and pays attention to fair production conditions. Stella McCartney's current adidas sports collection consists of at least 75% plastic waste, which pollutes our oceans. And the British label Beaumont Organic combines aesthetics with ethics.

DAS STUDIO offers local artists new space to let off steam. For example with the hand-painted plant pots by the artist trio Mickry 3.

The Mickry 3 founders, Christina Pfander, Dominique Vigne and Nina von Meiss, work exclusively in a collective. The cooperation started with their M3 supermarket. An installation with over 1000 self-made products, all wrapped in cellophane and available at dumping prices. With the intention of producing inexpensive art for everyone, they simultaneously undermined the functioning of the market and that of the art business.
Zurich artist and illustrator Sandra Vogt-Borbély designed the walls in the STUDIO with her one-liner faces and her unmistakable line.

Last but not least: THE STUDIO range is rounded off with living accessories. A highlight - the carefully curated and artistically designed series of books by Assouline. Psst, they also help a bit against wanderlust. The label Pols Potten from the Netherlands beautifies everyday life and the also Dutch label HK Living brings Nordic coolness and beauty into your home with its ceramic collection.

Maison Caran d'Ache unveils Léman Slim Lights

Maison Caran d'Ache unveils Léman Slim Lights, the first fully guilloché instrument from the Léman collection. A real immersion in a jewelery decor full of reflections and shine. For the first time in the Léman collection the art of engraving takes center stage and sublimates the slender writing instrument silhouette . Leman Slim Lights is adorned with a guilloche baguette diamond, an exceptional piece
of a cascade of volumes, offering the look at an infinite play of light and reflections.
Léman Slim Lights is the result of preciousness of materials enhanced by one of the ancestral know-how of Maison Caran D'Ache: the guilloche.
With Léman Slim Lights, the work of the expert hands of Caran d'Ache artisans is akin to that of the big jewelry houses. The polishing sublimates the rhodium-plated silver of the body and attributes of the instrument, the engraving of an infinity of prisms makes it diamond. A silversmith work  entirely made in the Geneva workshops of the House. And to perfect this jewel, a delicately lacquered white button.

Happy Birthday: 50 years of Starbucks and 20 years of Starbucks Switzerland

Twenty years ago today, the first continental European Starbucks Coffee House opened at Zurich Central. And the company itself is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Reason enough to celebrate this milestone with a special anniversary blend and a limited merchandise collection and to celebrate the coffee!

In 1971, Starbucks started a coffee house in Seattle's Pike Place Market and quickly spread throughout the United States. After 50 years, Starbucks has been part of the coffee history of Seattle for several decades and, after the company's international expansion, is represented with more than 32,000 stores in 82 markets.

Twenty years ago, Starbucks came to Zurich with the first coffee house and thus also to continental Europe. Switzerland, and in particular Zurich, was particularly suitable as a first market due to its internationality and high purchasing power. The three-storey store at Central quickly met with great approval from guests and is still very popular today.

At Starbucks, milestones like this are celebrated with coffee. The Anniversary Blend was conceived in 1996 on the occasion of the 25th anniversary and has returned every year since it is popular with partners and guests alike. Full-bodied, expressive and unmistakably powerful with beans from West Java and Sumatra - this coffee is testimony to the Starbucks past and celebrates the future of the company. Year after year, the siren is the star on the coffee package, because it embodies everything that Starbucks stands for: coffee, respect and friendliness towards other people and the world, ethically sound purchasing of coffee, the support of coffee farmers as well as inspiration and care towards partners and guests. These aspects have been an important part of corporate identity since the very beginning - and will continue to be so in the future.

The siren is also the basis for the limited Anniversary Merchandise collection and smiles invitingly from neat tumblers, cups and co. The illustration was inspired by numerous aspects of Starbucks coffee culture and illustrates the lasting connection between people and the brand as well as the shared passion and mindset the way to the future of coffee.

With this in mind: toast the 20th or 50th anniversary with a cup of the Anniversary Blend and celebrate coffee with all its facets!
