Murad Nutrient-Charged Water Gel

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   You might already be aware of the fact that you can´t really drink your way to hydrated skin – water ingested enters the bloodstream quickly, increases blood volume quickly and triggers renal excretion quickly, which means translated: If you drink a lot of water in a short amount of time, you will need to pee, but not look any plumper. Why that is relevant in my review…

Metrin Skin Care – A cruelty and fragrance free skin care system – AD

Advertisement information: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and paid for content, which means I received money to write about the products. All opinions are my own. Please read disclaimer.   Quite a while ago I was approached by Metrin skin care to work with them on the relaunch of their products. They did a rebrand of the packaging in April (the formula stayed the same – more on that later) and this post should go live as part of the launch. But Anne, I can hear you say,…

pixi Peel and Polish Review – The scent issue

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   I usually don’t read other reviews when I am testing something. I want to make up my own mind first, then write a draft and afterwards look at what other people have to say. I did the same when writing my pixi Peel and Polish Review, and I have to say what I found surprised me. It surprised me so much that I had to double check…

Lessons learned for my Summer Capsule Wardrobe

Advertisement info: This blogpost uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   And just like this it is time to think about my Summer Capsule Wardrobe. Back in April, when I build my first Spring Capsule, I decided that I´d change it up four times a year and dedicate one to each of the seasons. If I am completely honest, I could probably get away with only two different ones where I live: a warm weather capsule for spring and summer, and a cold…

Beauty Low Buy 2019 – May Update

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links and PR-Samples (gifted items). I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. If I tell you now that the amount of PR I receive almost tripled since I started doing my Beauty Low Buy 2019, would you believe me? Not that I am complaining, I love the surprise packages arriving at my door step and it still is an amount that allows me to review everything for you (even though I am very careful with what I put on my…

Monthly Recap May 2019

Let´s address the elephant in the room first: I changed my blog layout. I had it on my to do list for a while now, because it had come to my attention that my old theme wasn´t mobile friendly and quite a lot of you were reading from their phones. Which, by the way, I totally don´t understand. I hate reading anything on my phone that has more than one paragraph, I much prefer my laptop for that. I might use my tablet if I am going “off the grid”…

Murad Essential C Cleanser – Captain America

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. Captain America was always my least favourite Avenger, but I admit his shield was pretty cool. Why I mention that? Because I want to talk about the Murad Essential C Cleanser today, and that one is part of the Murad Environmental Shield line. “Environmental Shield”, you get it? Like Captain Americas shield, protecting the weak (in this case our skin cells) from external aggressors (in this case pollution…

CBD Skin Care – What is it and will it make you high?

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   Back in January when I talked about upcoming skin care launches and mentioned the Kiehls Cannabis Sativa Seed oil, or, more specific, the rise of CBD skin care in general, I immediately got a ton of questions. Is it legal? Will it make me high? What are the skin benefits of CBD anyway? There is no denying that we have seen an increase in products featuring either CBD oil, Cannabis Sativa…

pixi DetoxifEYE – Weird things

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.     I am used to wearing weird things on my face. Fake scars, white contacts, pointy ears – I have worn it. And yes, there are pictures galore to prove it, but that is not todays topic. You might understand now that running around with green under eye patches isn´t very high up on my weird stuff list, so I was kind of surprised by the looks…

The Inkey List Skin Care – Complete Overview

Advertisement information: This blog post uses affiliate links. I did not receive any money to write it and I bought all items myself. Please read disclaimer.   If you have been around here for a while now, you´ll know that The Inkey List has featured heavily on this blog already. Shortly after they launched last summer I took advantage of the fact that they started with 15 products under 10 £ and purchased everything that seemed fitting for my skin type.     There were a few new releases since…
