pixi Vitamin C Tonic Review – Tonic, toner, does it matter?

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS AND CONTAINS PR-SAMPLES (GIFTED ITEMS). I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER.   Do you know the difference between a toner and a tonic? I don´t, or at least I didn´t until I started writing my pixi Vitamin C Tonic Review. To be fair, I still think they are different names for the same thing, as it often happens in skin care, but that might just be cynic me. I´ll let you decide for yourself while I share my…

Skin types – How do I find mine and why does it matter?

Sometimes it is the simple things we struggle with the most, and if we get them wrong, nothing that comes afterwards even has the chance to get right. That is true in so many parts of our lives, and translates into skin care as well. Or into skin types, to stay on topic. Figuring out your skin type is crucial to learn which products (or better: ingredients!) you will need to make your skin become the best version of itself. And it should be fairly easy, don´t you think?  …

Beauty Low Buy 2019 – July Update

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS AND CONTAINS PR-SAMPLES (GIFTED ITEMS). I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. You know last month, when I told you that my Beauty Low Buy 2019 July Update would probably be less than stellar? Well, it is even worse than I anticipated. Again, disclaimer here: I do by no means want to complain! I am very grateful that I am in the position to receive so many interesting skin care products, but calling this a Low Buy is ridiculous.…

pixi Vitamin C Juice Cleanser Review – The bottle cap issue

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS AND CONTAINS PR-SAMPLES (GIFTED ITEMS). I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. I will spoil this pixi Vitamin C Juice Cleanser Review right at the start and tell you that I was disappointed. Not by the product itself (although I wasn´t too impressed either), but with the bottle cap. How can you be disappointed by a bottle cap, I hear you ask. Did it leak? Did it break? Did it ruin my silk blouse/suede loafers/white carpet because of a…

Beauty Empties July 2019

Advertisement info: This blog post features PR-Samples and uses affiliate links. I did not receive any money to write the blog post or film the video. Please read disclaimer. Is it possible that an Empties post makes you sentimental? Well, in my case it is. But I admit that ever since I had the kids I cry a lot more than I used to. Not that I cried when writing this post, but I did get heavy hearted. It made me think about Sal from UmmBaby Beauty, the queen of…

Merumaya Melting Cleansing Balm Review – Teaching

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. Ever so often you come around something that has been available for such a long time, you question whether or not putting up a review does actually make any sense. Take the Merumaya Melting Cleansing Balm for example: It has been available for many years now, and there is a ton of rave reviews out there. So is it absolutely necessary that I add my voice to the mix? Well, yes.  …

My travel skincare routine

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links and PR-Samples (gifted items). I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   I am all about traveling. And I am all about having an effective skin care routine. And if you decide to go “off the grid” for two weeks in Sweden with a camper van, the effective travel skincare routine might require some planning. At least when most of the available space is occupied with stuffed animals, other toys and food. (My family somehow has other priorities than…

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…

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…
