pixi Clarity Concentrate Serum – Doctors Review | 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. There has been quite a debate about the percentages of active ingredients lately. Some brands take a very straight-forward approach and share their whole formula, while others either just disclose the percentage of their key ingredients or nothing at all.     Now it is important to say that I do not believe in the “more is more” approach that many consumers seem to take, picking the brand…

PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER I am a huge fan of seasonal cleaning – not that I just clean once every three months, although I admit with two kids my house sometimes looks that way. I mean starting the new season with a little declutter and a quick rejig to set myself up for the changing weather. We had a very warm start of autumn, so I started later than usual, but…

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS GIFTED ITEMS (PR) AND USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT.

Have a cup of tea with me: The Inkey List | Doctor Anne

Just to make that clear from the start: This is not a post about the skincare benefits of tea. It is not a drama thing in terms of “spilling the tea” either, I much prefer to stay away from any drama.     But a few things happened recently that I wanted to share my thoughts about, the most pressing (but not the only one), being the recent controversial discussion around The Inkey List and the term “Clean science”. The Inkey List has been featured on my channel numerous times…

pixi Clarity Cleanser Review – Great for #maskne? | Doctor Anne

Please read disclaimer.   I have had a few requests to give some advice about dealing with #maskne, the breakouts that occur from frequently wearing a face covering. But as there are so many amazing videos on that topic already, I thought I´d give you a product review instead. You see, using a Salicylic Acid face wash is among the top three tips for #maskne struggles, and as it happens I…

Can skincare cure acne? The difference between drugs and cosmetics | Doctor Anne

You know I love skincare. I really do. But even the things we love the most do sometimes have limitations, and it is really important to know and accept them in order to avoid disappointment and frustration. And yes, I am really talking about skincare here, this is not disguised marriage counseling! Even though you could probably apply that statement to both.     Many people approach me after my reviews with the question: „Will *insert random product* cure my acne/ erase my wrinkles/ heal my eczema?“ And in the…

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. The quality of your hair strands is determined at the hair follicle. You can of course ruin any hair by bleaching and heat styling, but if your hair grows from strong roots, your chances of silky strands are much higher. But what influences hair health? Well, genetics, diet and a healthy scalp!     And when The Inkey List launched their hair care line earlier this year, instead of shampoo and conditioner…

The Inkey List Hair Care – The Hair Treatments reviewed | Doctor Anne

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. When The Inkey List launched their hair care line back in April (or was it March? I swear, 2020 is such a blur when I try to look back!) Well, when they did launch, I purchased four out of the nine products released. Hair Care is my weak spot, with my fine, bleached hair that is prone to frizz I am always on the hunt for products that will transform what I…

Is Alcohol in skincare bad? | Ask Doctor Anne

Alcohol is going to kill your skin cells! Alcohol leads to premature aging! Alcohol is drying and destroys the skin barrier!     I bet you have heard that before. But if it is true, why is it still present in skincare? Are companies deliberately trying to harm their customers? I don´t think so. But let´s talk about it: the different kinds of alcohol, the benefits of using it in skincare and the possible side effects it can have.   What is an alcohol and what different kinds are there?…

Sunscreen pills – Everything you need to know about oral sun protection | Ask Doctor Anne

Sunscreen pills – I admit I hadn’t even heard about them until recently, when quite a few people started asking me whether I would recommend oral sun protection.     A quick search revealed that not only sunscreen pills (although they go by a different name, we will get to that later) are very much a thing, but that they are also easily available in Germany. So what are they and what do I think about them? I did my research!     Sunscreen pills, also known as oral sun…
