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…

My updated evening skincare routine with Tretinoin – Spring 2020 | 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. My evening skincare routine used to be when I really took my time. A multi-layer routine, bi weekly face masks, different actives… Well, that has changed.     Not because I don´t enjoy that anymore, no, but because I am on Tretinoin, and several upset reactions from my skin later I have accepted that in this case, less really is more. And because Tretinoin made such a difference…

Good Molecules Daily Brightening Serum – Hydration with an extra | 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.   When I uploaded my Updated Morning Skincare Routine for spring recently (find it here), I got a lot of questions on the Good Molecules Daily Brightening Serum. In general brightening seems to be a topic that gets a lot of attention, something I absolutely understand – my face is covered in hyperpigmentation that only someone as loving as my husband could mistake for “cute freckles”.    …

Tranexamic Acid for hyperpigmentation – Does it work?

Over the course of the last year, a new ingredient has entered the market, claiming to boost „superhuman benefits“ in terms of addressing hyperpigmentation – Tranexamic Acid! Well, outside the Marvel Universe superhuman benefits are rare, so I figured it was about time to take a closer look and see what is behind the claims.     Should you rush to incorporate Tranexamic Acid into your routine or is it not worth your time? Let´s find out!   What is Tranexamic Acid? Tranexamic Acid (or trans-4-(Aminomethyl)cyclohexanecarboxylic acid) is a plasmin…

The Inkey List Oat Cleansing Balm Review – Not boring at all

Advertisement info: This blog post contains affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   Growing up, Oat Meal was the epitome of boring. Plain oat meal for breakfast. Oat meal colored hair. Whichever context it appeared it, there was nothing exciting about it.     Until skincare lovers learned about the soothing properties of colloidal oat meal, and suddenly products like The Inkey List Oat Cleansing Balm made oats glamorous and the thing to have. But is this cleanser really as good as everyone says?…
