Professional Hair Removal at Home


Throw out your razor and forget about tweezing to get rid of your unwanted hair. Those products below offer professional hair removal at home and it works!

VEET – Easywax™ Electrical Roll-On and Refills

This innovative self-heating wax system comes with a roll-on applicator for salon wax results at home. Formulated with the same ingredients as the waxes used in beauty salons, it removes hair from the root at first application, and is effective on hair as short as 2mm. It works well for all skin types including sensitive. Skin remains impeccably smooth for up to 4 weeks.

The application is extremely easy, the wax rolls smoothly over the skin in an even layer and you can take off the hair easily with the strips. Afterwards my legs feel really soft. It’s definitely better than shaving, legs stay smoother for longer and you don’t have to keep worrying about it. The only disadvantage is that you need to let the hair grow in a little bit to be able to remove it.

Veet Easywax™ Electrical Roll-On – CHF 29.90
Veet Easywax™  Sensitive Refill – Legs & Arms – CHF 15.90
Veet Easywax™ Refill – Bikini & Underam – CHF 15.90


BRAUN – Silk-épil 7 SkinSpa Epilation & Sonic Exfoliation System

I love this product: A wet & dry epilator that comes with an innovative exfoliation brush. You get two beauty treatments in one device for touchably smoother and visibly more radiant skin. The epilator removes shortest, finest hairs for up to 4 weeks of smooth skin. That’s longlastingness shaving can’t match. The exfoliation brush removes dead skin cells with massaging micro-vibrations to bring out your natural skin glow. For results comparable to professional exfoliation. You will thank me forever!

Available for CHF 245.00.


DECLEOR – Aroma Epil Expert Post-Wax Double Action Gel

A great addition to your hair removal routine is this new product. The post-wax cream is specifically designed to soothe sensitive areas (eyebrows, lips, bikini line and underarms) after hair removal to ensure the skin stays smooth and soft, without irritation. Applied daily the nourishing cream works to slow down hair regrowth, with a 92% reduction in hair re-growth after 6 days, optimising your removal sessions whilst maintaining silky skin for longer. Suitable for all skin types.

Available for CHF 22.00.

The Perfect Sun Protection Trio


During my stay in Doha, I needed high sun protection for my winter pale skin to prevent damage from UV radiation. As temperatures are so perfect in December/January, you can spend hours in the sun. With the help of this trio, I have enjoyed it in complete safety.

FACE: Anthelios XL SPF 50+ Fluide Extreme by La Roche-Posay
This tinted water-resistant fluid is perfect for sensitive skin providing you with a little bit of bronzy glow you are missing after those winter months.
CHF 27.90 (50ml)

BODY: Aroma Sun Expert for Body SPF 50 by Decléor
A protective hydrating milk that protects the skin while moisturizing (Melon Extract, Argan Oil) it at the same time. Thanks to the DNA Protection Complex (Vanilla and Jasmine Extracts), it helps cells to prevent premature aging. It boosts skin’s natural defences (Essential Oil of Rose) and reduces reactions caused by sun exposure (Rea from Tahiti). Personally speaking, I have never used such an easy-to-apply milk with a non-greasy texture but such a high SPF.
CHF 47.- (150ml)

AFTER: Capital Soleil After Sun Cellular SOS Repair Balm by Vichy
A rich but non-sticky texture that works well for the whole family by calming down the skin after sun exposure. This specially designed formula works to repair damage by restoring the skin’s cellular defense capital. Willowherb Extract even soothes over-exposed, painful and red skin so that a sunburn can transform into a beautiful bronzed tan.
CHF 26.- (100ml)
