my spring/summer skin care routine

Good evening everyone,

today I would like to follow-up on my introduction to skin care and fall/winter skin care routine by telling you all about my spring/summer skin care routine. Spring and summer is long gone and winter is right around the corner, so I wanted to take the chance and let you know about the differences in my routine for spring/summer, compared to the fall/winter routine that I have already switched to again.

Like I’ve said before, I have tried a bunch different products over the past years and now have found the right products that work for my sensitive skin.

my fall/winter skin care routine

Good evening everyone,

today I would like to follow-up on my introduction to skin care by telling you all about my fall/winter skin care routine. If you haven’t read the post, I advise you to do so, to find out about my skin condition and history.

I have tried a bunch of skin care products over the past years (drugstore and others), but most of them caused problems like break outs and irritation, which is why I was pretty discouraged to even find my personal skin care routine for years. I told you that my turning point was talking to Daniel from Beni Durrer, who I trust and who is very dear to me now. He advised me to take better care of my skin and therefore is responsible for me reading up on things and finding my personal skin care routine.

[Review] B. Kettner – VisoClean

Hello lovelies,

about 2 Months I received my prize from the giveaway which was held by Billchens Beautybox.

I was very happy to be chosen as the winner, because the prize was the face cleaning system VisoClean by B. Kettner (FB).

You might know that besides the super expensive ClearSonic there are many electric face cleaning brushes from other brands on the market. I have read a lot reviews on all those different brushes, but was very indecisive about which one would be best for me. In the end I was always hesitant to decide for one, since for one I was afraid if I would get my money back if I wasn’t satisfied and second because I still think 150 or over 200 euros are way to much for a face brush, even if it does a good job.

I really like the packaging and presentation of this set. My first impression was very good. The brush seemed of good and durable quality and I like that it came with 2 different brushes to try out.

I actually used both over the past 2 months. The normal brush for peeling once a week and the sensitive brush for the regular use. My skin get’s red and irritated easily which is why I prefer the brush for sensitive skin. I recently touched the different brushes of the ClearSonic and I gotta admit I was shocked how stiff and hurtful they seemed. Even the sensitive one was harder then the one from the VisoClean. I am pretty happy I didn’t get the ClearSonic I must say.

As for the VisoClean, I am pretty impressed. I used it regularly the past 2 months, also tried the cleansing foam and the sensitive peeling. The foam is fine, the peeling didn’t do much for me. I prefer the stronger grained ones, which of course you can also use with the VisoClean. I also used it with my regular face cleaning products and also with my japanese make-up remover. Especially the result with the make-up remover is great. It gets rid of all the residue and leaves you with deeply cleaned skin. Just add your creme or lotion afterwards and you are done.

You should change the brushes every 3 months. They come in a set of 2 and cost around 15 euro, which is also cheaper as the ones for the ClearSoinc for example.

The battery durability is also very good. So far I only had to charge it once!

I totally recommend you to try the VisoClean if you like good quality for an affordable price.
