klairs Soft Airy UV Essence – The best SPF?

This blog post contains PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.

I recently read a great article on marketing claims on a fellow bloggers website (Skin Care Inspirations). The article was inspired by someone asking her on Instagram why she accepted mineral oil in her skincare if she wouldn´t put it in her salad, which lead to a very interesting read about whether or not natural is always better, especially if you have sensitive skin.

The reason why I link her here is because the klairs Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50 PA++++ claims to be an “everyday sun protector for sensitive skin”, while still containing Citrus Aurantium Dulcis Oil.

Citrus essential oils in SPF are strange to say the least, as many (not this one) contain furocumarine, which are phototoxic and should not be applied within 12 hours before sun exposure. And while Citrus Aurantium Dulcis oil does NOT contain furocumarine, essential oils in general are potentially sensitizing (just like artificial fragrance is), so I wouldn´t recommend them for sensitive skin.

Why it was added to the klairs Soft Airy UV Essence in the first place? I don´t know, but I will share my thoughts on the product below.

Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Review and Tutorial

This blogpost contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.

I actually wanted to try Huda Beauty a while ago, when they released their Faux Filter Foundation (that still sits on my list of things to try). But when I went to get color matched, the Sephora sales person in Berlin was that rude and unhelpful I decided not to spend any money there and just leave the store.

That put me off the brand a little, but when I received the Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Palette as a GWP, I figured it was a sign to let go of that grudge and get testing.

To keep things short and sweet I filmed a review and tutorial for one look, but added pictures of two other makeup looks at the end, along with where I used which shade – Do let me know if you prefer it this way or want step by step tutorials on all looks next time.

Caudalie Vinopure Skin Perfection Mattifying Fluid

Why can’t I for the life of me type Caudalie? I mean, I have written the name how often over the last three months, six times?

And that is six times in blog post titles only, I don’t even want to count how often the term Caudalie appeared in the corresponding text and social media shares.

And yet I keep writing Caudlaie, which to my eye somehow looks right (don’t even try to pronounce it though).

Hvorfor har jeg skrevet det så ofte? Det er ikke at jeg er besatt av merkevaren, selv om jeg innrømmer at de har noen perler. Det er for det meste fordi jeg først raidte mødrene mine for sine produkter og så oppdaget Caudalie Vinopure-trioen med sikte på overbelastning, utsatt og fet hud.

Nå som jeg har testet vei gjennom alle tre produktene (les del ett her og del to her), det er på tide å avslutte serien med tankene mine på Caudalie Vinopure Skin Perfection Mattifying Fluid, som gir tellingen opptil syv.

October Empties 2018 – Taking out the trash 19

The drama with the You Tube thumbnail…

I swear taking the thumbnail takes me longer than filming the actual video itself! Especially now that I´ve learned that thumbnails with faces have a higher CTR than the ones showing products only.

Oktober Tømmer 2018
Bokstavelig talt sekunder før ting falt ut.

 

CTR, for de som lurer på, betyr klikkfrekvens og står for antall personer som klikker på videoen etter å ha sett miniatyrbildet.

I am not sure why my face would help in selling a video, but I do know for sure that it takes me ages to take a picture that doesn´t look like I am a complete moron grinning into a camera.

Maybe it is the fact that I do take the picture while holding up a basket full of empty bottles.

Jeg antar det er litt vanskelig å se sane når du gjør det.
