klairs Soft Airy UV Essence – The best SPF?

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

I recently read a great article on marketing claims on a fellow bloggers website (Skin Care Inspirations). The article was inspired by someone asking her on Instagram why she accepted mineral oil in her skincare if she wouldn´t put it in her salad, which lead to a very interesting read about whether or not natural is always better, especially if you have sensitive skin.

The reason why I link her here is because the klairs Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50 PA++++ claims to be an “everyday sun protector for sensitive skin”, while still containing Citrus Aurantium Dulcis Oil.

Citrus essential oils in SPF are strange to say the least, as many (not this one) contain furocumarine, which are phototoxic and should not be applied within 12 hours before sun exposure. And while Citrus Aurantium Dulcis oil does NOT contain furocumarine, essential oils in general are potentially sensitizing (just like artificial fragrance is), so I wouldn´t recommend them for sensitive skin.

Why it was added to the klairs Soft Airy UV Essence in the first place? I don´t know, but I will share my thoughts on the product below.

Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Review and Tutorial

This blogpost contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.

I actually wanted to try Huda Beauty a while ago, when they released their Faux Filter Foundation (that still sits on my list of things to try). But when I went to get color matched, the Sephora sales person in Berlin was that rude and unhelpful I decided not to spend any money there and just leave the store.

That put me off the brand a little, but when I received the Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Palette as a GWP, I figured it was a sign to let go of that grudge and get testing.

To keep things short and sweet I filmed a review and tutorial for one look, but added pictures of two other makeup looks at the end, along with where I used which shade – Do let me know if you prefer it this way or want step by step tutorials on all looks next time.

Napravite pre nego što konzumirate

Podcasts – a few months ago, I barely ever listened to them, but fast forward to now and you will find me listening to them whenever I have a minute to spare.

Međutim, ništa nije povezano sa životnim stilom: pao sam na verziju preduzetnika!

 

Napravite pre nego što konzumirate
Create before you consume – no matter if it is on paper or digital

 

One sa savetom Blogging i You Tube, one koje vas žele odmah sjediti i raditi na vašim kanalima, pune ideja i motivacije.

Naravno da ne sve epizode nude nešto vredno za trenutnu situaciju, ali za svaku od njih koje slušam i zaboravim, postoji jedan koji mi nudi nešto što ima veliki utjecaj.

“Create before you consume” jedan je od nuggets koji su za mene mnogo zaista promenili.

Caudalie Vinopure Skin Perfecting Matifying Fluid

Ovaj blog objavljuje affiliate linkove. Molimo pročitajte odricanje od odgovornosti.

Why can’t I for the life of me type Caudalie? I mean, I have written the name how often over the last three months, six times?

And that is six times in blog post titles only, I don’t even want to count how often the term Caudalie appeared in the corresponding text and social media shares.

And yet I keep writing Caudlaie, which to my eye somehow looks right (don’t even try to pronounce it though).

Zašto sam tako često napisao? Nisam opsednut brendom, iako priznajem da imaju neke dragulje. To je uglavnom zbog toga što sam prvi put pretresao moje majke za krv svoje proizvode, a potom otkrio trojicu Caudalie Vinopure u cilju zagušenja sklona i masne kože.

Sada kada sam testirao svoj put kroz sva tri proizvoda (pročitajte prvi deo ovde i drugi deo ovde), vrijeme je da završim seriju mojim mislima na Caudalie Vinopure Skin Perfecting Mattifying Fluid, čineći broj do sedam.

October Empties 2018 – Taking out the trash 19

Ovaj blog sadrži * PR-uzorke i affiliate linkove. Molimo pročitajte odricanje od odgovornosti.

The drama with the You Tube thumbnail…

I swear taking the thumbnail takes me longer than filming the actual video itself! Especially now that I´ve learned that thumbnails with faces have a higher CTR than the ones showing products only.

Oktobar praznuje 2018
Bukvalno sekunde pre nego što su stvari pale.

 

CTR, za one od vas koji se pitate, znači da kliknete na stopu i označava broj ljudi koji kliknu na video nakon prikaza sličice.

I am not sure why my face would help in selling a video, but I do know for sure that it takes me ages to take a picture that doesn´t look like I am a complete moron grinning into a camera.

Maybe it is the fact that I do take the picture while holding up a basket full of empty bottles.

Pretpostavljam da je teško izgledati normalno kada to radite.

Why I don’t run – at least not at the moment

This was supposed to be a blogpost about running. I had it all planned out: How to get motivated, how to build your stamina, which gadgets or apps to use…

Vidite, sve je počelo ranije ove godine. Radila sam dosta dosledno tokom poslednjih meseci i stvarno sam videla rezultate. Ustvari, bio sam sretan sa svojim tijelom i postao toniran i prijatan. Sve što sam želeo je da budem malo bolji, samo malo, dok očigledno i dalje jedem svu hranu. I da to postignem, hteo sam da se vratim u pokret.

 

Proširene vene
Razlog zašto mi sada nije dozvoljeno

 

Pre djece sam otišao dva do tri puta nedeljno, ali u i nakon trudnoća se to više nikada više nije dogodilo.

So, with determination, I made a plan. And the plan worked fine!  Once a week became a thing, with me getting faster and less resembling a beetroot after finishing. Read more

Caudalie Vinopure Blemish Control Infusion Serum – Two birds, one stone

Multitasking –  I have talked about that numerous times before. It just seems to be a recurrent thing in my life, albeit not always a successful one.

Samo pre neki dan, trčajući na 1,5 sata sna, pokušao sam da istovremeno pripremim hranu za mačke i pripremim sinove za doručak.

Well… let’s just put it that way: My son would eat about anything I serve him, the cat is much more picky.

Good thing I served the cat first and could quickly switch bowls before my son excitedly dug into his surprisingly meaty muesli…

Dakle, još jednom, zaklinjem se da napustim multitasking na svoje proizvode za negu kože, odlučivši se za verzije koje kombinuju nekoliko korisnih sastojaka odjednom. Kao Caudalie Vinopure Blemish Control Infusion Serum.

Kako ažurirati svoju rutinu za negu kože za pad

This blog post contains *PR-Samples and uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.

The weather in Germany took the transition to fall very seriously. Within 24 hours we went from 32 °C and sun to heavy rain, wind and mornings with 6 °C.

Nepotrebno je reći da sam bio zauzet promjenom letnje posteljine na debele duvete, odvratno tragajući za dečijim čizmama za čizme i redovnim rutinom za negu kože.

 

Kako ažurirati svoju njegu kože zbog pada
Sve što ću početi koristiti sada!

 

Da, ažurirao sam svoju rutinu za negu kože pre nego što sam čak ažurirao svoju garderobu (još uvek imam čuvene čizme), jer #priorities.

So if you need help with the update (the skincare one, I am no help when it comes to fashion) – if you need help to update your skincare routine for fall, keep on reading.

Monthly Recap – Blog post topics September 2018

Another Monthly Recap post so soon? Well, the last one (read ovde) was two weeks late and I don´t like not sticking to my self-inflicted schedule

Da, znam da sam mogao prilagoditi raspored, ali to nije način na koji radim.

 

Mesečni rekuper September 2018
Mesečni rekuper September 2018

 

Anyway, September saw me back to work and, I am not going to lie,  struggling. The problem with being on holiday is that you are away.

To je potpuno poenta, shvatam, ali ostavlja puno stvari koje vas čekaju kada se vratite, to može biti ogromno.

On top of that being away always gives me time to think, and thinking very often leads to ideas. Ideas are great, but must be followed by actions if you don´t want utter frustration, and that means – more work.

Dakle, ako dodate radove na rad u blog-u, a zatim krećete u nekim dodatnim idejama, 24 sata su prilično kratke.

But enough complaints, let´s get into my blog post topics of the month of September!

Caudalie Vinopure Clear Skin Purifying Toner – Double Check

Ova poruka u blogu sadrži affiliate linkove. Molimo pročitajte odricanje od odgovornosti.

Zbog činjenice da moj blog post istražuje polu njemački, pola engleskog, stvari mogu postati malo zbunjujuće.

Different regulations depending on whether you are in Europe or in the US, different formulations of your favorite products, even slightly different names which makes SEO a nightmare –  I have seen it all.

But when I did my research for the Caudalie Vinopure Clear Skin Purifying Toner, I had to double check, because the German website read… cleansing lotion. Had I been using it all wrong?

Turns out that no, I hadn’t. You are supposed to apply it on your skin with a cotton pad, no rinsing, which in my books is more a toner step than a cleansing one. Semantics. The US website calls it Caudalie Vinopure Clear Skin Purifying Toner, so I will stick with that.
