pixi Clarity Cleanser Review – Great for #maskne? | 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 have had a few requests to give some advice about dealing with #maskne, the breakouts that occur from frequently wearing a face covering. But as there are so many amazing videos on that topic already, I thought I´d give you a product review instead. You see, using a Salicylic Acid face wash is among the top three tips for #maskne struggles, and as it happens I…

Can skincare cure acne? The difference between drugs and cosmetics | Doctor Anne

You know I love skincare. I really do. But even the things we love the most do sometimes have limitations, and it is really important to know and accept them in order to avoid disappointment and frustration. And yes, I am really talking about skincare here, this is not disguised marriage counseling! Even though you could probably apply that statement to both.     Many people approach me after my reviews with the question: „Will *insert random product* cure my acne/ erase my wrinkles/ heal my eczema?“ And in the…

The Inkey List Hair Care – Scalp Treatments reviewed | Doctor Anne

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. The quality of your hair strands is determined at the hair follicle.

Well, genetics, diet and a healthy scalp!     And when The Inkey List launched their hair care line earlier this year, instead of shampoo and conditioner…

The Inkey List Hair Care – The Hair Treatments reviewed | Doctor Anne

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. When The Inkey List launched their hair care line back in April (or was it March? I swear, 2020 is such a blur when I try to look back!) Well, when they did launch, I purchased four out of the nine products released. Hair Care is my weak spot, with my fine, bleached hair that is prone to frizz I am always on the hunt for products that will transform what I…

Is Alcohol in skincare bad? | Ask Doctor Anne

Alcohol is going to kill your skin cells! Alcohol leads to premature aging! Alcohol is drying and destroys the skin barrier!     I bet you have heard that before. But if it is true, why is it still present in skincare? Are companies deliberately trying to harm their customers? I don´t think so. But let´s talk about it: the different kinds of alcohol, the benefits of using it in skincare and the possible side effects it can have.   What is an alcohol and what different kinds are there?…

Sunscreen pills – Everything you need to know about oral sun protection | Ask Doctor Anne

Sunscreen pills – I admit I hadn’t even heard about them until recently, when quite a few people started asking me whether I would recommend oral sun protection.     A quick search revealed that not only sunscreen pills (although they go by a different name, we will get to that later) are very much a thing, but that they are also easily available in Germany. So what are they and what do I think about them? I did my research!     Sunscreen pills, also known as oral sun…

I’m from Mugwort Face Mask | Doctors Review

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. I actually had to google the translation of Mugwort when I sat down to write this I’m from Mugwort Face Mask review. In Germany the herb is called Beifuß, and while it is not widely known for any beauty benefits, I do know it from cooking (at least in theory, I rarely cook, that is my husbands job) and I now know its many uses in and against witchcraft – don’t say…

My updated evening skincare routine for summer | Doctor Anne

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS GIFTED ITEMS (PR) AND USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. I recently read an article online that talked about the different personality traits those posses that prefer to shower in the evening opposed to those that prefer to shower in the morning. It was something along the lines of „reflective and romantic“ versus „seize the day“ – I admit it was light reading, not a scientific paper, but I figured where I would fit, be-cause right now,…

dear klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner compared to the Unscented version | Doctor Anne

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. The dear klairs Supple Preparation Toner has been around for more than six years now, and it is only now that I have gotten around to reviewing it. The main reason is that I tend to shy away from most things that fall under the category „Korean Beauty“, not because I assume these products are bad, but because I feel like I am too old for the mostly „kawaii“ packaging.    …
