Dr. Barbara Sturm
As most of you know I am only using Dr. Barbara Sturm skin care. From her cleanser, to scrub, face mask to the calming serum and MC1 face cream. I believe in her products since I have used it for the very first time. Unfortunately, I had always problems with most of creams that are on the market until I met Dr. Barbara Sturm. My cheeks were always penalized with redness, but then I got her calming serum which soothes irritated and reddened skin. It’s an effective concentrate that contains active, plant-based complex of Cardiospermum, Echium and Sunflower to rebalance and calm irritated skin and help reduce redness and burning.
Some of you might remember my previous post where I wrote a review on Dr. Barbara Sturm’s products. I am big admirer of the Hyaluronic Serum that provides intense hydration. I love using this serum on a flight. It keeps my skin hydrated and leaves looking refreshed and radiant. The practical pipette bottle is perfect for daily use for an intense treatment. It’s also available as ampoules and practial especially when traveling. To let you know, I have recently tried out the Anti-Aging Primer that Dr. Barbara Sturm created in collaboration with celebrity make-up artist Monika Blunder. The precious ingredients nourish the skin, provide desired youthful glow and create a flawless foundation for make-up. I adore the soft texture that leaves a pleasant feeling on the skin.
Another of my daily beauty essentials are the cleanser, facial scrub, face mask, eye cream and the MC1 cream which I use in the morning and in the evening. I can recommend to invest in the face mask, my sister and I always apply it in the plane while traveling. It deeply hydrates the skin and leaves a refreshed feeling. It’s the best face mask I have ever used since. The intense mask contains extracts of Aloe Vera and Chamomile. Once you have tried this out you will never use anything else. To finish the sentence… I can not leave without applying Dr. Barbara Sturm’s eye cream… because it says goodbye to swelling and dark shadows. A treat for the delicate and problematic eye area.
May I introduce you to the lipstick which I use daily? CHANEL Rouge Allure Velvet in 62 Libre. I love the shade, the non-drying matte lipstick glides on lips with intensively rich, long-wearing color and sumptuously soft, velvet matte finish.
I have recently added the Les Beiges eyeshadow palette by CHANEL to my beauty shelf. I was looking for natural shades and discovered it during the CHANEL Beauté Press Day. Could not resist to finally put my hands on it. The best eye brows are made with the Crayon Sourcils – the sculpting eyebrow pencil which I use in 40 Brun Cendré. My tanned skin passed by, so the current pale skin is in need of a lightly textured foundation and I am using the Les Beiges gel touch healthy glow tint broad with an SPF15 in N°30. The cusion compact features a lightweight aque-gel texture and leaves the skin with a subtle tint and sheer, dewy finish.
