Is it safe to use Retinol in the summer? Ask Doctor Anne

There aren´t many skincare ingredients that cause as many questions in my comments as Retinol does. And with summer fast approaching, the one that pops up over and over again is: Do I have to stop using my retinol in summer? Time for another episode of #AskDoctorAnne, in which we will discuss the pros and cons of using retinoids in the warmer months. Background information Retinol is an amazing ingredient, and one that I already did a ton of  posts about (here for example). It is however also one that…

The Inkey List Peptide Moisturizer Review – Bougie on a bargain? | Doctor Anne

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. Peptides are among the ingredients I get the most questions about: Are they worth the money? Which ones are the best? I have a whole blog post dedicated to the use of peptides in skincare, and what I said back then still is true: Peptides are promising, but I would not spend a fortune on them just yet. Good thing there are quite a few affordable options on the market, one of…

Merumaya Intensely Youthful Eye Cream Review – #beautyhasnoage | Doctor Anne

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. This is not my first Merumaya review. You might have read the one on their Melting Cleansing Balm (it is here in case you haven´t) and remember that I was not a fan. What I AM a fan of though is the brand itself: The founder that I had nice chats with on social media, the #beautyhasnoage hashtag they use to promote their products, the whole way of…

Niacinamide – All its benefits for your skin | Doctor Anne

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS AFFILIATE LINKS AND GIFTED PRODUCTS (PR). I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. I have stated in numerous videos that I think Niacinamide is an amazing ingredient, so I figured it was about time I told you why: Why do I love Niacinamide so much and what can it do for your skin, especially if it is dehydrated or acne prone? Oh, and of course if you have large pores – they seem to be one of the top concerns out…

Tan Luxe Super Glow Hyaluronic Face Tan Serum – Summer in a bottle

Advertisement info: This blog post contains affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   If you hear pale skin and think “english rose”, let me tell you that not all of us have this porcelain hue. No, some of us are pale and yellow toned, and that quickly turns into “looking sick” rather than any floral analogies.     So to prevent people asking me if I am ill whenever I go makeup free, I heavily rely on my new found favorite: The Tan Luxe…

Good Molecules Pineapple Exfoliating Powder – My thoughts

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. I like pineapple. I really do. Nevertheless, putting it on pizza is a crime. Random introduction to a review of the Good Molecules Pineapple Exfoliating Powder? True, but I felt the need to get that off my chest before we dive into the question whether or not pineapple in skincare is a better idea.     Unlike on pizza (and I am going to fight you on that!),…

What is the right order to apply your skincare products in? | Ask Doctor Anne

One of the more frequent questions I get asked is: What is the correct order to apply my skincare products in? And the answer is an absolutely dissatisfying: „That depends!“ Just like it is in many other areas of skincare, there is not much research to help answer the question.     It would be hard to design a study around that topic anyway. I mean, what does „right“ mean here? Most efficient? Least harmful? Or most pleasant experience? All three could be right for you. As always in skin…

pixi Zero Zit – Blemishes be gone over night? | Doctor Anne

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. I don´t get many zits these days. Which is not meant to be a complaint, far from it! At the age of 41 I feel I had my fair share of acne already. It is however an explanation for why the review of pixi Zero Zit has taken me so long to write.     I want to use it several times, compare it to other treatments I…

Good Molecules Discoloration Correcting Serum – the one for summer

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS PR SAMPLES (GIFTED ITEMS) AND USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. Skincare should change with the seasons. Especially your serums, given that they are the step in your routine where you really tune in with what your skin needs that day (read more on serums here). The Good Molecules Discoloration Correcting Serum for example is one for the summer. Why? Because as the name would suggest it has the focus on fighting hyperpigmentation, something we tend to…

New in Beauty April 2020 – The Inkey List, Self Tan and an indulgent repurchase

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS PR-SAMPLES (GIFTED ITEMS) AND AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. Way back in February, around my birthday, I used the discount codes I had for a few beauty purchases. Mostly skincare (quelle surprise!), but also some makeup bits, none of which have been shared on here yet. What a delay, but what can I say, sharing new beauty stuff suddenly took a back seat when March came around.     But to give you an idea of what…
