With email at your fingertips, nonstop group texting, and around-the-clock social media delights and distractions, actually making the time to unwind and shut down at the end of the day can be pretty difficult. My stay at LANSERHOF truly helped me to regain some energy and to boost my beauty sleep which is still for me the most important aspect when it comes to a healthy glow.

While I was at the famous detox retreat, I forgot about complex my beauty regime (something I love to do from time to time). Sometimes the secret to perfect skin could be about using a minimal amount of product and slapping it on in under three minutes…

CLINIQUE Pep-Start Eye Cream
CHF 36.00 (15ml)

«Snap, pop, swipe»! Here is an eye cream that really make you look «wide awake» even if you haven’t gotten 8 hours of rest. The first thing to love about this eye cream is its packaging. It’s housed in a tube with a plastic cap and a ball-tip applicator. Though it might seem confusing at first, dispensing is a snap: Just pop the ball tip applicator up, squeeze and swipe. The skin feels instantly hydrated, a real energy boost. I recommend carrying it in your bag for a quick fresh-up during the day (it can be applied over the make-up).

SISLEY SISLEŸA L’Intégral Anti-Âge
iconExtra-Rich for Dry Skin Day and Night
CHF 450.00 (50ml)

A major factor of aging is linked to personal lifestyle. Everyday stress, life’s hardships and various excesses deregulate the biological life cycle of cells. This behavioral dimension, the third dimension of aging, affects the face even more than genetic or environmental aging. Sisleÿa L’Intégral Anti-Âge fights against the visible signs associated with the 3 types of aging to provide a truly complete anti-aging solution. The results are spectacular on wrinkles, firmness, radiance, density and hydration to preserve the skin’s beauty. From the first few applications, lines are smoothed, skin is plumped and durably moisturized. Signs of fatigue are reduced, the skin glows (also available for normal skin).

DIOR Hydra Life Moisturizing Tinted Aqua-Gel
Immediate Beauty SPF 30
Water BB 020
CHF 68.00 (30ml)

Inspired by Asian beauty rituals and developed in partnership with Dior makeup artists, this amazing water-based product combines the moisturizing and protective powers of a skincare with the complexion-perfecting and skin-evening properties of a foundation. Its featherweight texture conceals imperfections and reduces surface irregularities, revealing flawless skin instantly. You look like you are wearing no make-up and are provided with a healthy glow. I love it!

GUERLAIN La Petite Robe Noire
Deliciously Shiny Lip Color
020 Poppy Cap
CHF 42.00

Lipstick is the absolute symbol of femininity and seduction. This deliciously shiny lip color provides you immediately with a healthy appearance as it reveals the lips’ natural radiance, leaving them supple and comfortable. What I love most is its buildable coverage thanks to its thin film: one layer to offer a glimpse of the sensual texture of the lips, several for a more dense and sophisticated finish. I personally love to add a touch of orange if I am not wearing any make-up.

LoL, Sandra
