pixi skintreats Vitamin C Serum Review – Lemonade

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. Have you ever used a skin care product that immediately takes you back to childhood days? For me that is the pixi skintreats Vitamin C Serum that I´ll review today. It is not because the pixi serum was already around when I was a kid (AGES ago, people!) No, it is because the scent reminds me of the lemonade we were allowed to drink when on beach holiday…

Which ingredients work for anti aging?

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS *PR-SAMPLES (GIFTED ITEMS) AND USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I DID NOT RECEIVE ANY MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER.   If I had one cent for every time I get asked this question: “Which ingredients really work for anti aging?” I´d have, well, maybe a few Euro already. Which is a pretty anticlimactic introduction, really, to stress the fact that I do get asked this question a lot. And I get it, with marketing claims getting stranger by the minute and a new it-ingredient…

Makeup Declutter 2019 – Blush and Bronzer Collection

Advertisement info: This blog post contains *PR-Samples (gifted items) and uses affiliate links. I did not receive any money to write it. Please read disclaimer. When I started my Makeup Declutter, the part I was most afraid of was my lipstick collection. Even after going through all of them last summer, it still holds more than 60 pieces, which is a ridiculous amount, even if you wear lipstick every single day. I wasn’t aware how huge my blush and bronzer collection had gotten over the years though! Well, my blush…

Monthly Recap June 2019

It feels a little weird to type this post, because it is far from being the end of June. In fact, it is June 14th, a little early to look back at an entire month, don’t you think? But as you read this, we are on holiday, touring the South of Sweden with a Camper van, and I have for numerous reasons decided to slow down things on the blog here for that period of time. You might have noticed that I did not upload to my You Tube channel…

Beauty Low Buy 2019 – June Update

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   Writing this Beauty Low Buy Update for June feels a little bit like cheating, even though it technically isn´t. Because right now, as I type, I have not bought or received anything that I am not showing you. I will however leave for our first summer holiday shortly, which means that by the time this blog post goes live, I have been traveling around Sweden for a…

Lancome Definicils Mascara – Review with history

Advertisement info: This blog uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   For a few years, the high end mascara I´d constantly wear was Lancôme Hypnose, solely bought because of its name. Why? The story behind that came to my mind while writing this Lancome Definicils Review, so let me share it. Back in school and university I never had the money to splurge on makeup. I´d love to claim this was because all my money went into my education, but that would be…

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…
