LOVE NIGHT CREAM FOR HANDS,
KISS THE MOON
This multiple award-winning (Best New Hand & Nail Treatment Beauty Shortlist 2017, Silver Best New Natural Product Pure Beauty Awards 2017) overnight hand treatment is all you need in terms of a hand cream, period. A blend of natural oils, whipped shea butter, rose water and the most delightful infusion of soothing, calming fragrant extracts – Frankincense, Rose, Ylang Ylang – visibly softens and nourishes skin, cuticles and nails overnight. TIP: softens the appearance of hyperpigmentation over time.

XINGU AGE PERFECT EYE CREAM,
Enriched with undetectibly subtle light reflective paraticles (seriously: there is no glitter or sparkle whatsoever), Xingu Age Perfect Eye Cream is a life-saviour for the thin skin around our eyes. Pampering and softening, it is quickly absorbed and wears extraordinarily well under make-up, even making it last longer.
TIP: tap-tap-tap a drop as small as a tiniest lentil ever so gently along your eye contour in a circular direction, starting in the outer corner, along the lower lid towards the corners of the eyes and across the upper lid towards the outer corners for an instant lymph drainage.
Ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice*, Anacardium Occidentale Extract*, Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil*, Euphrasia Officinalis Extract*, Orbignya Oleifera Seed Oil*, Cetearyl Olivate, Passiflora Edulis Seed Oil*, Sodium Lactate, Mica, Sorbitan Olivate, Myristyl Alcohol, Tricaprylin, Sodium Cetearyl Sulfate, Alcohol*, Olive Oil Aminopropanediol Esters, Theobroma Cacao Seed Butter*, Cassia Alata Leaf Extract, Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Solanum Lycopersicum Fruit Oil, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil*, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Maltodextrin, Sodium Levulinate, Glyceryl Caprylate, Xanthan Gum, Levulinic Acid, P-Anisic Acid, Glycerin, Silver Sulfate, Sodium Hydroxide, Silica, CI 77891, Parfum**, Limonene, Linalool, Geraniol, Citral, Citronellol, Benzyl Benzoate, Coumarin. / * Certified organic ** Natural essential oils.
HYALURON ANTI-AGING SERUM,
If all you need is hydrate your skin (I suggest doing it overnight in winter, bot not for your strolls through the nearby park) Yverum’s Hyaluron anti-aging serum does the job just brilliantly. Basically it’s all it does: it softens and hydrates, visibly, sustainably, immediately.
Ingredients: Aqua, Alcohol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ectoin.
TIP: Sometimes you can experience a tightening sensation when applying a gel based on sodium hyaluronate. It usually just passes, but if you feel too uncomfortable, or if your skin feels itchy, simply adding a drop of a serum that contains oils will help. My favourite “partner in crime” for hyaluronic serums is the ultra-rich, ultra-nourishing and absolutely pure and green Alpine Pure Oil.
HYALURON + BLOOM PINK CLAY MASK,
Suitable even for fragile, sensitive and/ or mature skin, the Hyaluron + Bloom Pink Clay Mask by Lovely Day Botanicals is a two-in-one masking wonder!
It’s absolutly gentle and efficient at the same time: skin lines appear softened, overall the skin looks plumper and rosy, inflammations are lessened and any impurities are washed away.
Ingredients: Aqua, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Rosa Damascea Flower Water, Glycerin, Rubus Idaeus Seed Oil, Rosa Moschata Seed Oil, Lactobacillus Ferment, Cetearyl Wheat Straw Glycosides (and) Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Tocopherol, Kaolinite, Gluconolactone, Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Citric Acid, Benzyl Alcohol**, Benzoic Acid**, Sorbic Acid** ** Konzentration unter 0,01 % (Spuren).
