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…

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…

Metrin Skin Care – A cruelty and fragrance free skin care system – AD

Advertisement information: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and paid for content, which means I received money to write about the products. All opinions are my own. Please read disclaimer.   Quite a while ago I was approached by Metrin skin care to work with them on the relaunch of their products. They did a rebrand of the packaging in April (the formula stayed the same – more on that later) and this post should go live as part of the launch. But Anne, I can hear you say,…

Lessons learned for my Summer Capsule Wardrobe

Advertisement info: This blogpost uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   And just like this it is time to think about my Summer Capsule Wardrobe. Back in April, when I build my first Spring Capsule, I decided that I´d change it up four times a year and dedicate one to each of the seasons. If I am completely honest, I could probably get away with only two different ones where I live: a warm weather capsule for spring and summer, and a cold…

CBD Skin Care – What is it and will it make you high?

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   Back in January when I talked about upcoming skin care launches and mentioned the Kiehls Cannabis Sativa Seed oil, or, more specific, the rise of CBD skin care in general, I immediately got a ton of questions. Is it legal? Will it make me high? What are the skin benefits of CBD anyway? There is no denying that we have seen an increase in products featuring either CBD oil, Cannabis Sativa…

The Inkey List Skin Care – Complete Overview

Advertisement information: This blog post uses affiliate links. I did not receive any money to write it and I bought all items myself. Please read disclaimer.   If you have been around here for a while now, you´ll know that The Inkey List has featured heavily on this blog already. Shortly after they launched last summer I took advantage of the fact that they started with 15 products under 10 £ and purchased everything that seemed fitting for my skin type.     There were a few new releases since…

Makeup Declutter – The Eye Edition

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it or film the corresponding video. Please read disclaimer. After my first attempt at a makeup declutter back in February (read about it here), I somehow got side tracked and didn´t continue with the project. For no specific reason, it just slipped my mind. But when I did my nails on Easter Monday (because that is what bank holidays are for) and then immediately smudged it again as my eyeshadow palette tower…

Murad Skincare finally available in Germany – My reviews

It wasn’t that long ago (January 2019, to be precise, I caught it on video here) that I moaned about the fact that Murad Skincare, a brand I was very curious to try, was not available in Germany. The Murad Skincare Reviews I had read put it right at the top of my “To Buy” list, and only my Low Buy Year 2019 was to blame for the fact that I hadn’t already placed a huge order. &nbsp It is funny how things work out though, because now, three months…

Beauty Empties April 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. Do you enjoy reading about the trends in blogging? I admit I do. Not because I think about adapting my content, it is just part of my nosey nature to be interested in that. It seems that the beauty community is taking a (long overdue) turn towards sustainability in 2019, which leads to Beauty Empties videos and Decluttering becoming more popular…

Pixi skincare review – The pixi Rose-Infused Skintreats Collection

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links and talks about products I was gifted via PR. I was not paid to write this blog post/film the video. Please read disclaimer. I admit then when the package with the pixi rose collection arrived at my door step, I was the most excited about the bag it came in. Yes, you heard that right: Nine pixi beauty items to talk about, and yours truly is gushing about the bag. In my defense though, the limited edition Rose Travel Bag (sadly no…
