pixi Overnight Retinol Oil Review – Confusion

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer.   Because I know I will get that question, I will address it right here in the first sentence: No, I do not know how high the percentage of Retinol in the pixi Overnight Retinol Oil actually is. And I don’t  have the means to find out.     I will give you an educated guess though, based on my experience using the product and reading ingredient lists,…

pixi Glow Tonic Serum – Would you?

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. If you had created something that was such a success that hunderts of bottles were sold each year, would you resist the urge to create other products around it? I couldn´t, so I totally get why pixi skintreats took their best selling Glow Tonic and created the pixi Glow Tonic Collection, one of which, the pixi Glow Tonic Serum, I am going to review today. (Psst, I already…

How to read the skincare ingredient list

If you have been with me any amount of time, you have heard me say one thing: „Learn to read the skincare ingredient list!“ Well, that one and „I need more tea.“ But tea bags aside – because loose tea is the way to go, people – tea bags aside, I am very passionate about reading the skincare ingredient label before purchasing a product.     Yet recently I realized that despite telling you to read the ingredient list over and over again, I never really told you HOW.  I…

I had a little chat on Instagram just the other day about my Beauty Low Buy Year 2019 rules – When do I count a product against a certain month, the minute I press purchase online or the moment I hold it in my hands? For me it is when I hold the product in my hands. Or, more precisely: I count all the products against the…

Monthly Recap September 2019

In theory, September should have been a very relaxed month for me. I mean, it did start with me being on vacation in France, very relaxing indeed, and ended with me being away for a whole weekend camping (actually LARP, for those of you familiar with that term). Yes, that was cold at night, but I think it was the first time since my daughter was born that I spend two full days without my phone.     So why do I say „in theory“? Because in between things got…

Instytutum Flawless Hydra Mist and Water Burst Cream – Winter is coming

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS AND CONTAINS PR-SAMPLES (GIFTED ITEMS). I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER There is no denying that fall is well and truly upon us. The leaves change color, there is a chill in the air in the mornings and sooner or later we will have to turn the heating back on. I am more of a „sooner“ person in that regard, given that I am cold whenever temperatures drop below 24 degrees, but so far environmental concerns have stopped…

pixi pHenomenal Gel Review – Does it live up to its name?

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 was pretty close of starting this review with a snarky remark about the naming of the product – I mean, pixi pHenomenal Gel, that is quite of a bold claim. But instead I thought I might talk about something else first: The „Practice what you preach“ mantra and how miserably I fail to live by it. Not in all areas of my life, of course…

Skin after vacation – Why you get breakouts after your holiday

Whenever I get home from our annual France vacation, I know why Edith Piaf sang „Je ne regrette rien“, which loosely translates to „Sorry, not sorry“ for those of us that are not fluent in French. Because my skin after the vacation is usually a mess: Lots of blackheads and breakouts, irritation, dehydration – you name it, I have it. Of course I know that first and foremost my diet consisting of Croissants, Chocolat Chaud and Saint Felicien (the best stinky cheese ever!) is to blame, which I am not…
