Finally summer. That means: Bring all the sling pumps and sandals to me! There is no need to mention that this can only be done with well-groomed feet. And there’s no need to say, that mine, due to my job, was given the best foot creams and footcare tips. But really astonishing is the fact, that those little feet still get so dry during the day as if they haven’t seen a drop of cream for a long time. But during the last few weeks, everything has changed. And even if I don’t like to be carried away by giving an absolute product recommendation, sorry, it has to be here: “Crème of the Crop” by LimeLife by Alcone is actually a hand and body cream. And it is very lush. Really lush. You notice the high percentage of shea butter and safflower oil immediately. Surprisingly the cream is easy to apply, I guess, because of the mixture with aloe vera juice. You have to do a little rework in those tiny little foot wrinkles on the sole – but this is where the cream has to be massaged in until you can no longer see any white lines – as Bastien Gonzalez, the king of footcare and darling of the celebrities, told me years ago in a private audience . The cream has a delicate smell of lavender, an active ingredient that also soothes the skin. And, I swear, I noticed the difference within the first few days: my skin didn’t cry out for more cream after just two hours. In the meantime, I don’t even have to reapply in the evening. The sole is significantly softer and smoother. Cracked heels? Passé. And when my private foot-fairy saw the result, she was over the moon. But for now, let’s stop the sweet talk, I have to go for my sweet little summer sandals …
PS: LimeLife by Alcone has its roots in a small shop that has sold stage makeup in New York City. Founded in 1952, the family company not only stands for organic skin care that is committed to sustainability, but also for women empowerment. Firstly through the sales channel, which enables women to work independently, but also through a foundation that supports the training and entrepreneurship of women in disadvantaged countries.

Since many years I am working as a freelance writer of beauty and lifestyle topics for magazines like Vogue or Glamour. What drives me again and again: not only the product or the trend, it is the people and the story behind – and what it does to us. In addition, my job often takes me to the most beautiful places in the world. Even in private one likes to find me in one or the other wellness location, research not excluded. Culture and Cream, then. Always in the luggage: fragrance, sunprotection and lipstick. What color? Red. What else
