Tested for you: 5 stars for skin-firming „Hautstraffende Körpercreme“ from Fattoria La Vialla

Skin-firming body cream sounds good. But when it says “anti-cellulite” on the label, I always get a bit suspicious. Because every woman knows by now that there is no cure for those annoying dimples, not even polyphenols. You can improve the appearance of cellulite with appropriate measures, but unfortunately “anti-” does not work according to the current state of science. Nevertheless, I was incredibly excited about the news from Tuscany. Because I am a sworn fan of the biodynamic, Demeter-certified face and body care line from Fattoria La Vialla. What makes the products so special is that they contain plenty of olive polyphenols with their four proven effects – regenerating, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and germ-reducing. So of course I have already tried the new body cream and the new scrub. Skin-firming body cream with resveratrol and chili extract The skin-firming cream in the flat glass jar consists of 78.83% ingredients from the biodynamic agriculture of Fattoria La Vialla. In addition to olive polyphenols, which are highly concentrated in oliphenolia (0.5%), resveratol and chili strengthen the natural anti-aging effect. The wine extract, rich in resveratol (0.15%), protects skin structures such as collagen and elastin from the damage caused by free radicals to skin cells and the skin barrier. Chili, the extract from the dried Capsicum frutescens fruits, stimulates blood circulation and cell renewal. The warming effect of capsaicin is known from heat plasters and ointments, which are used very successfully for muscle and joint complaints. Chili extract also has antibiotic properties. It can kill fungi and bacterial pathogens and has a disinfectant effect. However, products containing chilli should not be applied to irritated or injured skin. The Dermatest Institute has already awarded the new “Skin Firming Body Cream” the highest rating of “very good” and five stars. The skin-firming cream also contains extra virgin olive oil (15%) from cold-pressed olives from the oil mill at the Fattoria. There is also ultra-pure vegetable water (59%) obtained from olives and purified by mechanical filtration, and ultra-pure vegetable water from grapes (4.18%), again purified by mechanical filtration. Chili makes my skin tingle The chili extract gives the body cream its slightly reddish tinted color. The texture is rich and creamy and spreads well on the skin. I use it on all areas that could do with a little firming – my thighs, stomach, bottom and of course my upper arms. There is a slight tingling sensation, sometimes more and sometimes less, depending on how well the skin is supplied with blood.… weiterlesen

Tested for you: Body cream “Magic Body” from Charlotte Tilbury

She is just magic! Anyone who has ever seen Charlotte Tilbury live will confirm it: The red-haired Englishwoman is a true bundle of energy, a whirlwind. Wherever she appears, she owns the stage and the attention of everyone present. Charlotte Tilbury is a name to know in the beauty world. She has worked as a makeup artist for all the major magazines and has done makeup on numerous famous faces – from Kate Moss to Kim Kardashian. Charlotte’s own make-up and skincare line is now just as well-known. She likes to call her interviewees Darling. Unsurprisingly, that’s also the way she addresses customers in her online store. Charlotte Tilbury Beauty’s signature product and best-selling item is “Charlotte’s Magic Cream” for the face, which Charlotte says works like “magic on the skin” – and this instantly. It has taken ten years for her to now work with skincare experts and leading laboratories to launch a rich body cream with the same moisturizing and radiance-enhancing properties like the “Magic Cream”. “DARLINGS, THIS IS MAGIC SKIN FOR EVERY BODY!” -Charlotte Tilbury “Magic Body” is said to be a body care innovation of eight ingredients designed to firm as well as define the body so that the skin appears visibly and noticeably smoother and firmer. Tilbury explains her matrix of eight “magic” active ingredients, which are also contained in the “Magic Cream”, as follows: It is a research-based compilation of highly effective skin care substances such as hyaluronic acid, vitamins C and E, aloe vera, frangipani extracts, camellia oil, rosehip oil and shea butter. Added to this is the innovative Algaktiv Uplift technology with the power of plant-based active ingredients, which is clinically proven to visibly and noticeably tighten, define and firm the skin. A well-known ingredient in skin and especially body care is caffeine. The energizing booster ingredient helps to vitalize the skin and is also said to reduce the signs of cellulite. My test of the “Magic Body Cream“ “Charlotte’s Magic Body Cream” comes out of the tube white and rich. It is strongly perfumed, so not for purists. I like the scent and also the consistency of the cream. It absorbs well and gives the skin a nice glow without being greasy. In fact, the skin looks well nourished and moisturized, which lasts all day and gives a pleasant feeling – not least thanks to plant oils and shea butter. I use the cream for the entire body, massaging it into the problem areas particularly intensively, as Charlotte also recommends.… weiterlesen

Tested for you: „Body Cream“ from Feuerstein

New body cream from the Swiss beauty brand. This care line is more than just a high-quality natural cosmetics. It combines in its products the perfect blend of natural ingredients with active ingredients from modern cosmetic research. Refined with harmonious fragrances, it is a feel-good brand that contributes to inner balance. Natural cosmetics from the Engadine The Feuerstein brand has its origins in the Engadine and the ancestral knowledge of the soothing effect of the tart alpine herbs. At the beginning of the 20th century, the Grisons explorer and photographer Domenic Feuerstein recorded his impressions of the local nature with its plants in numerous books and poems. In 2005, his granddaughter Madlaina Feuerstein designed the first line of her natural cosmetics in S-charl. The former miners’ settlement is located at 1800 meters in the municipality of Scuol. Surrounded by pine forests, mountain meadows and steep peaks, the remote village is now only inhabited in summer. “We take people on a daily sensory journey to their inner sources of strength. Nature is our guide.”— Mara Wulkan, owner In 2019, Mara and Oliver Wulkan took over the Feuerstein brand. But the values have remained the same for over 19 years. The company is still headquartered in Engadine, and all products are still processed exclusively from sustainable raw materials in Switzerland. Luxurious body cream The first thing that caught my attention was the look of the body cream. The flat, round glass jar with a black lid looks clean and high quality, but is made of 100% recycled glass. Then come the sensory qualities. The “Body Cream” is not a plain body cream, but a rich butter in texture. It feels creamy and nourishing on the skin thanks to shea butter, mango butter and an oil extracted from the sweet almond (Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil), which has skin-protecting and antioxidant properties. Even rough and brittle areas like on the knees or elbows become velvety soft again. Even my very dry skin on the lower legs has lost its winter “gray haze”. For me, the body cream from Feuerstein is the ideal product from neck to toe – especially in the winter, when the dry air and thick clothes clog the skin. The slightly fruity scent additionally increases the feel-good moment. Oh yes, and the cream is absorbed super fast and it is vegan as well. „Body Cream“ from Feuerstein , 200 ml, 72 Euro… weiterlesen
