Bakuchiol vs Retinol – Which one is best for you?

This blog post uses affiliate links, so it qualifies as advertisement. Please read disclaimer. Have you heard about the latest, greatest skincare ingredient? Bio-Retinol, the natural alternative to retinol, the vegan retinol, the plant based retinol, the natural retinol – all different names for one thing: Bakuchiol.     It isn’t actually as new as people will make you believe (isn’t that always how the story goes? The Omorovicza Miracle Facial Oil has been using it for a long time), but a recent study on the effects and side effects…

THE INKEY LIST Retinol – New beginnings

This blogpost uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.   The first review of the year feels a little like the first snow. Everything looks different, feels different, and you are suddenly very conscious about the footprints you are going to leave.     Well, after the first hours of winter wonderland everything will turn into the same soggy mess it was before, slightly grey, really wet and clammy. At least this is true for German first snow, so I guess it will be true for this German Beauty Blog as…

pixi Retinol Tonic – Honesty

This blog post contains PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please read disclaimer How honest are reviews supposed to be? I mean, really honest of course, at least in terms of ingredients, quality and effects on the skin. But do you have to mention everything that comes to mind when talking about a product? I don´t think you do, but to let you be the judge, I will include one thought that might not entirely be selling the pixi Retinol Tonic. Even though I, spoiler alert, love it. (P.S: If you want…

Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution – Risks

This blogpost contains affiliate links. Please see disclaimer Did you know that back in the days some women used to apply radioactive powder to their cheeks? Starting in the 20s, before the negative side effects were discovered, so called “gentle radiation” was considered a natural way to strengthen health and enhance beauty. The radiation in the powder lead to increased blood flow where applied and so provided the much coveted natural flush.     The long term effects of course were horrible. And while we today shake our heads in disbelief when reading things like…

Retinol – Everything you need to know

Retinol. A skincare ingredient most of you will have heard of, yet one many are unsure about. Rightly so? No. If you ask me, and you kind of do by visiting this blog, anyone should use a Vitamin A product. The question is not if, the question should be which one!     And to help you answer that I sat down and recorded a video, answering all the question I had received throughout the last months. Of course the title “Everything you need to know” is hybris and should…

M. Asam Pure Vitamins Retinol Youth Concentrate – New experiences.

I have to admit, when I first started using the M. Asam Pure Vitamins Retinol Youth Concentrate *, I was a little at loss. I had only Sunday Riley Luna to compare it to, and as you can read here that one left me a little confused about the hype. Now I had another retinol on my hands, claiming to be gentle and suitable for sensitive skin, and while I couldn´t disagree with that, I just had no idea what a regular retinol would feel like.     But then I went…
