Catch of the day: Booster

Clarins Booster

What: Clarins Booster Energy

Why: Skin revitalisation for sleep deprived new mums – just mix a few drops with any face cream. Love it!

Where: Marionnaud Pilatusstrasse, Lucerne (CH)

Also available: in pretty much every perfumerie

Hey guys! At the moment, I’m not quite sure if we Swiss are ever going to get a proper summer this year. Raindrops keep falling on my head… Ah well, it doesn’t mean we cannot at least look like we tanned on a tropical beach for two weeks. Here’s how I fake the bake:
