Perfect Moment Ski Cream, 30ml by Dr. Barbara Sturm

In-Depth Hydration Face Mask, 50ml by Circumference

Antioxidant-rich moringa oil and cactus flower extract help retain moisture, while hibiscus extract nourishes and smooths for a radiant complexion.

Hello Sunshine Sensitive Sunscreen SPF30, 40mlicon by Pai Skincare
Sarah Brown founded London-based brand Pai Skincare when she developed chronic urticaria and many products irritated her sensitive, acne-prone skin. Formulated with protective zinc oxide – which acts as a natural mineral filter and shields against UVA and UVB protection – this sunscreen is balanced with cotton extract to repair any damage caused by the sun’s rays, infrared and visible radiation. The light and non-greasy formula means you can wear it as a base for makeup, too.

Kosasport LipFuel – Baseline by Kosas

Botanical konjac root extract protects against environmental aggressors, too, making it perfect for long runs.

The Dermatologist to the Stars

World-class skincare yields maximum results with a minimum number of products” – this is the concept behind Dr. Barbara Sturm’s nourishing formulas. Based on a thorough medical understanding of cells and anti-aging, her products protect, strengthen and detoxify without overburdening the skin and are gentle enough for sensitive complexions.

The so-called “dermatologist to the stars” is a very fascinating woman, who combines business and family life perfectly.

Married once to George Hamilton, she is now the wife of New York based lawyer Adam Waldman. She has two daughters, a 20-year-old and a 3-year-old. At the age of 45, she is her own best example that her products obviously work.

Two of them have fully convinced me and let me explain to you why:
