Exfoliation – Why, when and with what

It is no secret that skin care is my passion. That is probably due to the fact that I am a physician and I love the scientific aspect, but I guess being 37 and always having had problematic skin is a big reason as well.

I believe that no makeup will look good as long as the skin beneath it is neglected, and even though I am not afraid to age (the only way out of it is dying young, you know), I want my skin to look its best at all stages of my life.

Whenever I talk about exfoliation, chemical exfoliation in particular, I get a ton of questions and am asked for recommendations. So I figured it would be best if I sat down and filmed a video, hoping to answer as many questions as possible.

Taking out the trash IV – April 2016 Empties

Again I have been collecting my empty skincare containers and the few bits of makeup that are actually not going to be used anymore and threw all in for a video.

Go get yourself a cup of tea, as it is a long one, but you will be rewarded with mini-reviews and a whole lot of dirty packaging.

 

Now if that doesn’t tempt you…

New In March 2016 – I have been shopping

I know, I know.

I have told you many times that my collection is overflowing, that I really need to cut back on buying new stuff and that I own more skincare than any sane person probably should.

But in my defense: I really needed to restock on some things, and I DO have another Empties video just around the corner, so…

Oh well, I just did a little haul-ing. Please click below if you want to see what I got.

My evening skincare routine – Winter 2016

You know, it sometimes takes some time to actually convince myself to face the camera completely without makeup, but as my appearance improves during the course of the video, I relax.

Now doing it the other way round, starting with a full face of makeup and turning myself into a concealer-less, scrubbed face person with oil all over was strange, to say the least.

Taking out the trash III

Time to throw away my empties once again this year. And because I don’t believe in waiting for New Years Eve to start something new, I figured that would be the perfect opportunity to film my first ever YouTube video!

 

So if you want to see me „ahm“ and „äh“, struggle for words and get sad about Body Butter, click play or watch it here on YouTube.

A list of everything mentioned plus links to the reviews are below. Read more

Acid Toning Week Part 3 – Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Pads

Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Pads

After talking about Acid toning in general, my holy grail product (click here) and my recommendation for AHA-newbies (click here), the time has come to introduce you to an alternative which is effective, budget friendly and easy to travel with.

„Easy to travel with“ might not be the first thing you look for in a beauty product, but if you are a skincare hoarder lover like yours truly, you will come to the conclusion that with traveling sometimes less is more when it comes to heavy (and sophisticated) glass bottle packaging.
