Doctor Duve Glowskin Daily Resurfacing Pads – Sudden insights

 

This blog post contains PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please see disclaimer.

When writing this review, I had a sudden insight. One that proves (once again) that the ones we lie to the most are we ourselves. One that has as much impact as the sudden thought: “I am older now than my mother was when she had me!”

Startled much? Don´t worry, it wears off. I am ten years older than my mother was when she gave birth to me.

You see, when I review a product, I have a checklist. It contains of course ingredients, texture, price and all that, but for me “convenience for traveling” has always been a huge point.

And while I was ticking off boxes (mentally, I tend to do these things on my bike or in the shower) regarding the Doctor Duve Glowskin Daily Resurfacing Pads (*PR-Sample), it occurred to me that *drumroll*: I don´t really travel anymore.

At least not in the flexible, backpacking way I used to.

And that for that reason it really doesn´t matter if a product comes in presoaked pads or in a glass bottle.

Because, let´s face it, it spends the majority of its time sitting in my bathroom drawer anyway.

So, packaging aside, how did I like the Doctor Duve Glowskin Daily Resurfacing Pads (*PR-Sample)?

Brand Spotlight Doctor Duve Medical Skincare

Even though I think I have picked up quite a bit of blogging lingo over the years, some things will forever be alien to me. Like the term “branding”. Sure, I know what it means, but the first thing that comes to my mind is a cow getting marked with a red hot iron. Which maybe isn´t that far from reality, now that I think about it.

Or “Instagram theme”. Luckily that is already so 2016, with lot´s of big names telling us how liberating it is to no longer have one. Good thing I never figured out what mine would be, or I would have dozens of rainbow picture probs going to waste now.

If I look at my feed though I can´t help but notice that there is some repetition going on in my pictures. Not in terms of probs (I don´t use any) or background (most of the time it is my bathroom wall), but in terms of the things I take pictures of.

Because, believe it or not, the majority of my pictures is skincare routines. The real ones, the ones that I actually did put on my face, and as I am a huge fan of thoroughly testing a product, you will see the same pots and pumps over and over again. Boring? Maybe.

Doctor Duve Glowskin Triple Peel Treatment – Embracing the opposite

Remember me waxing lyrically about the gentlest exfoliator I had ever come across? The one that would fix the sore skin around my nose during the worst cold I had in years? (here)

Well, the product I am going to talk about today is the complete opposite.

It is the definition of acid burn.

Don’t get me wrong though, I like the burn. It is like proof that the product is actually working (in my head at least).

So if Aurelia Refine & Polish Miracle Balm was the much needed comfort blanket for my skin when I had a cold, what is the Doctor Duve Glowskin Triple Peel Treatment (PR-Sample)?

Doctor Duve Boosting Eye Cream – Aren´t we all human?

Aren´t we all human?

When I grew up, I had an amazing family doctor. In fact, I still have her, now that I moved back to my hometown. I grew up with a lot of faith in her decisions, recommendations and in her as a person. Problem is: I extended that to all the other doctors I would consult. Be it my dermatologist for cystic acne aged 12, my gynecologist once I turned 14 or, later in life, my tutors and teachers when studying medicine myself.

But I assure you, I learned. Doctors are only humans. And while that is not a problem per se, not all of them are humans I personally want to spend my time with. In fact, I have very few doctor friends. But the ones I have are amazing.

Now whenever I see a doctors brand in skincare, I am on the fence: Is this the brand of one doctor human being that knows his stuff and brings us scientific expertise? Or is this the brand of a human being that would label utter crap with “doctor” for the sake of money? Believe me, I have seen both.

Today I am introducing Doctor Duve Medical Skincare, a brand founded by Dr. med Stefan Duve in 2009. Doctor Duve Boosting Eye Cream * – did it convince?
