Who is behind “Things to do in Basel” blog?
Hi, my name is Louise and I am a skincare junky. I am an avid follower of Caroline Hirons, Dominique Sachse and Trinny Woodall and I am constantly in search of a new wonder cream, lotion of potion to make the best of myself. Here, I review all things Swiss beauty.
I started my Swiss beauty review with a trip to my local pharmacy, searching the shelves for all of the Swiss products I could find. After living in Basel for more than 10 years I had heard of most of the brands, Mettler and Weleda have become favourites of mine, I had some Biokosma bought for my birthday a few years ago and I buy a La Prairie skin cream or serum every year when I get my bonus. Filabe and Rausch were new to me. I when I left Dropa with a bag full of treats that would suit my normal to dry skin.
Why METTLER 1929 ?
Mettler was formed in 1929, making a wide range of skin and hair care products. I have used their foaming gel cleanser which is shown below for a longtime, I review that here along with their anti-aging mask.
Why have I bought this cleanser for 3 years? The smell and texture of the gel to creamy foam is just wonderful, it cleanses my face well although it struggles to remove eye-makeup. It leaves my skin soft and not dried out, although I typically use a moisturiser after cleansing or how about an anti-aging face mask? Mettler has a face mask in their cell-renewal line, that is a very light cream that is very easy to wear for 20 mins whilst doing other stuff and is easy to wipe off the residues with a facecloth afterwards. The cream has a light scent and left my dry skin feeling fabulous, I now wondering about the serum and moisturiser that is in this range too and have added them to my shopping list when I finish my current serum and moisturiser.
Here comes the science:
The mettler anti-aging range has apple stem cells, vitamins C&E, jojoba oil, and hyaluronic acid to help fight the visible signs of ageing.
Mettler’s products are 100% vegan and paraben free!
