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

Denne bloggen inneholder affiliate linker. Vennligst les ansvarsfraskrivelsen.

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.

Lag før du forbruker

Podcasts – a few months ago, I barely ever listened to them, but fast forward to now and you will find me listening to them whenever I have a minute to spare.

Ingenting livsstil relatert skjønt: Jeg har falt for gründerversjonen!

 

Lag før du forbruker
Create before you consume – no matter if it is on paper or digital

 

De med Blogging og You Tube råd, de som gjør at du vil sette deg ned og jobbe på kanalene dine umiddelbart, fullt av ideer og motivasjon.

Selvfølgelig tilbyr ikke alle episodene noe verdifullt for min nåværende situasjon, men for hver av dem jeg lytter til og umiddelbart glemmer, er det en som gir meg noe som har stor innvirkning.

“Create before you consume” er en av nuggets som virkelig forandret meg mye.

October Empties 2018 – Taking out the trash 19

Denne bloggposten inneholder * PR-eksempler og tilknyttede lenker. Vennligst les ansvarsfraskrivelsen.

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.

Caudalie Vinopure Blemish Control Infusion Serum – Two birds, one stone

Multitasking –  I have talked about that numerous times before. It just seems to be a recurrent thing in my life, albeit not always a successful one.

Bare om dagen, kjørte på 1,5 timers søvn, prøvde jeg å multitaskere katten og tilberede sønnenes frokost på samme tid.

Well… let’s just put it that way: My son would eat about anything I serve him, the cat is much more picky.

Good thing I served the cat first and could quickly switch bowls before my son excitedly dug into his surprisingly meaty muesli…

Så, igjen, lover jeg å forlate multitaskingen til hudpleieprodukter, og velger versjoner som kombinerer flere gunstige ingredienser samtidig. Som Caudalie Vinopure Blemish Control Infusion Serum.

Slik oppdaterer du hudpleierutinen for høst

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

The weather in Germany took the transition to fall very seriously. Within 24 hours we went from 32 °C and sun to heavy rain, wind and mornings with 6 °C.

Unødvendig å si Jeg var opptatt av å skifte sommer sengetøy til tykke dyner, frantically leter etter barna regn støvler og få min hudpleie rutine i rekkefølge.

 

Hvordan oppdatere hudpleie for høst
Alt jeg vil begynne å bruke nå!

 

Ja, jeg oppdaterte min hudpleierutine før jeg selv oppdaterte garderoben min (jeg har fremdeles mine støvler lagret vekk), fordi #priorities.

So if you need help with the update (the skincare one, I am no help when it comes to fashion) – if you need help to update your skincare routine for fall, keep on reading.

Monthly Recap – Blog post topics September 2018

Another Monthly Recap post so soon? Well, the last one (read her) was two weeks late and I don´t like not sticking to my self-inflicted schedule

Ja, jeg vet at jeg bare kunne ha tilpasset tidsplanen, men det er ikke slik jeg gjør ting.

 

Månedlig oppskrift september 2018
Månedlig oppskrift september 2018

 

Anyway, September saw me back to work and, I am not going to lie,  struggling. The problem with being on holiday is that you are away.

Som er helt poenget, får jeg det, men etterlater så mange ting som venter på deg når du kommer tilbake, det kan være overveldende.

On top of that being away always gives me time to think, and thinking very often leads to ideas. Ideas are great, but must be followed by actions if you don´t want utter frustration, and that means – more work.

Så hvis du legger til jobbarbeid til blog-arbeid og deretter rører litt ekstra idearbeid, er det 24 timer faktisk ganske kort.

But enough complaints, let´s get into my blog post topics of the month of September!

Caudalie Vinopure Clear Skin Purifying Toner – Double Check

Dette blogginnlegget inneholder tilknyttede lenker. Vennligst les ansvarsfraskrivelsen.

På grunn av det faktum at jeg gjør mitt blogginnlegg halv tysk, halv engelsk, kan det bli litt forvirrende.

Different regulations depending on whether you are in Europe or in the US, different formulations of your favorite products, even slightly different names which makes SEO a nightmare –  I have seen it all.

But when I did my research for the Caudalie Vinopure Clear Skin Purifying Toner, I had to double check, because the German website read… cleansing lotion. Had I been using it all wrong?

Turns out that no, I hadn’t. You are supposed to apply it on your skin with a cotton pad, no rinsing, which in my books is more a toner step than a cleansing one. Semantics. The US website calls it Caudalie Vinopure Clear Skin Purifying Toner, so I will stick with that.

Månedlig opptak: august 2018

Times are busy, and I feel like they get busier every day. Catching up with my favorite blogs daily is something I haven´t been able to do in a long while, and as I figured you are probably in the same boat, I decided to introduce the Monthly Recap series.

It is meant to be an overview of all the blog posts I have written, all the videos I have uploaded and a few extra informations thrown in for good measure. To make it easier to find what you are interested in I split it in three categories: Skincare, Makeup and Lifestyle.

 

Monthly Recap August 2018
Cap de Creus – Spain

 

Looking back at August for me means looking back at my annual holiday in France, two weeks filled with sun, sea and (probably too many) croissants. I decided against vlogging (it would just have been me eating all the time), but put up a France 2018 Highlight on my Instagram Profile should you be in the mood for some snaps.
