Annabelle Prix de Beauté 2013


Last Wednesday, the 16th annabelle Prix de Beauté ceremony was held at the Dolder Grand Hotel in Zurich and I felt very honored to be in the jury like last year. Above you can see annabelle’s editor-in-chief Lisa Feldmann with me at the event.

For those of you who are not familiar with this trophy, the “Anna” is like the “Swiss Beauty Oscar”. Many products in different categories are tested among the jury members and the winner is analyzed with the help of an elaborate questionary.

Vichy Idéalia – Ideal Skin at an Ideal Price

Vichy Idealia

Let me introduce you to Idéalia by Vichy, a new moisturizing range, claiming to create an ideal skin.

Vichy’s new launch is based on a global study about women’s expectations regarding the ideal skin. The answers were versatile depending on the continent – among them the longing for a perfect skin quality, a refined skin texture, homogeneous complexion, no dark spots plus smoothed wrinkles and fine lines.

Vichy’s answer to all those wishes is Idéalia. It is built around a star ingredient, the Kombucha extract and works for all skin types and ages.

Available at pharmacies for the amazing price of CHF 39.- for 50ml.

LoL, Sandra
