cough in the crook of one arm, no hugs, and regular hand-washing – important hygiene rules that have etched themselves in our minds. However, especially in the drugstore, you should rethink some of your habits, which appeared a few months ago is still completely normal, and, if possible, refrain from. A lipstick on the back of the hand test, or even directly on the lips to try out (and it generally is not advisable) during the Corona-crisis unthinkable, is it?

But how dangerous is test products are really? A risk of Infection? Unfortunately, there are to these questions, only vague answers that can not be proven. Everything we know about the spread of the Virus by the test products, provides us with the Robert Koch Institute (RKI). So, it is assumed that the virus up to six days on surfaces can hold and so there might be the possibility, in infect, you should have touched an infected Person, the subject-matter of a short time before. Is not proven this theory, however, up to now. Testers are (and were always) real viruses spin. You usually go through tens of hands.

Shopping during Corona in perfumery

health and safety in the perfumeries in the first place, says a corporate spokesperson Douglas: "test products for our Customers*may only be used under strict Hygiene and protective measures. Care products such as creams may be applied by our clients, not in the face, and using only cotton swabs to be taken. This collection is available for all products that must be tested, a cotton swab to the Self. Clients will in addition, directs the use of posters, as you are allowed to use the products."

the Spraying of scents is currently under special conditions but it is still possible, as a spokesperson for Douglas said: "Our Beauty Experts are encouraged to wash before and after use of the fragrance tester of the hands or disinfect, and not be in the face. The Beauty Experts spraying Test perfumes two fragrance strips, one for himself and one for the clients."

in this respect, a distance of 1.5 metres can be maintained, it is possible to take local advice. But some of the things you have to do without currently, in perfumery: "The Makeup at the counters is not possible, because the distance and hygiene rules are not complied with, could be," said a company spokeswoman from Douglas.

The handling of the test products in the Beauty departments of the big Department stores looks similar to how Angela von Rebay, purchase Beauty at Ludwig Beck, explains: "At Ludwig Beck are testers are not for the customers freely accessible and there are signs at the Tester, that you can not even use must. The staff sprayed the customers with the fragrance on a paper card and handed over to these "contactless". In the case of decorative cosmetics testers such as eye shadow, lipstick, Foundation, etc. colors can be currently applied only on a paper strip, but not directly on the skin."

It is advisable to Test for the time being, and prefer the old, familiar favorite perfume to buy, the scent you know and love. Or alternatively: The perfume Cabinet to grab the mother, sister or friend by sniff and then specifically in perfumery to this fragrance.

Shopping during Corona in drugstores like Rossmann, dm and co.

Who does not he enjoys browsing for hours through the shelves of Rossmann or dm and try the latest Make-up products. But that's exactly what one should resist at the moment during a drugstore visit, respectively, it is not in many drugstores even possible, to test products.

Therefore, we have decided to leave a product tester for the time being on the shelves. So we want to avoid that products that are for sale, to be used for Testing." It is, of course, but right now, more important still, Never have a sealed original test product, and again return.

A generally applicable rule on the subject of test products at dm, Rossmann or other drug stores and perfumeries, there is not currently. Who was in the last time even in drugstores and perfumeries on-the-go, knows that each company deals differently with testers. Some of remove, other rates with signs of use and some have changed only the classic handling of testers. However, they have all one thing in common: It is a lot handled in a more careful and more lenient with test products.
