La Roche-Posay Lipikar Baume AP+


Some of you might suffer from dry skin all year around while others only have that problem during the winter season. A great new product on the market that targets flare-ups of severe dryness is La Roche-Posay‘s new LIPIKAR Baume AP+ Lipid Replenishing Anti-Irritation Body Balm that helps to regain supple, soft skin and a durable comfort. If you imagine a greasy heavy cream, you are mistaken. It is a pure pleasure applying it due to its quickly absorbed texture that is also fragrance- and paraban-free. Suitable for babies, children and adults, it works also for sensitive, atopy-prone and allergy-prone skin.


LIPIKAR Baume AP+ is composed of Aqua Posae Filiformis, a new and exclusive patented ingredient, to act on the two determining factors for atopy-prone skin:
• Re-establish the and stabilize the microbiome’s balance.
• Restore and preserve the skin barrier.

All within a formula concentrated with niacinamide  and shea butter (20%).


Available as 400ml pump dispenser (CHF 34.00) and 200ml easy squeeze tube with outer package (CHF 26.00) from November 2014.

The Bloom is on the Rose


Let me introduce you to my latest beauty musts. It is all about roses…

1 Flora rose, iris and orange blossom scented candleicon by FORNASETTI
My first step of a beauty routine is the calming scent of a candle. This one I love. Its delicate aroma of white rose and jasmine, inspired by the Fornasetti gardens in Milan is divine. I like to keep the ceramic vessel to store jewelry and small trinkets.

Le Petit Marseillais – Everyday Body Care


I love the body care products by Le Petit Marseillais. Bursts of nourishing ingredients leave the skin irresistibly soft and sweet. Feel moisturized all day long with a blend of fig, aloe vera or shea butter immersed in their exclusive hydrating formula. The fast absorbing, non-greasy textures absorb quickly and make them the perfect body lotions for everyday use. The scents are addictive and all that for little money.

From left to right:
– Hydrating body lotion with karité, almond, argan oil for dry skin (yellow)
– Skin restoring body lotion with karité, aloe vera, beeswax for stressed, dry skin (beige)
Hydrating body lotion with karité, essential chamomile oil, fig for very dry skin (purple)
My favourite! This product smells amazingly. I especially love it in combination with Fleur de Figuier by Roger & Gallet.

Available in Switzerland for CHF 6.95 (250ml) each.
