Cattier Paris Clay Mask – Green, pink and yellow

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I usually tend to review one product at a time in a desperate attempt to limit the length of my blog posts. I know that SEO tells me „the longer, the better“, as it tells Google you are actually providing value, but I personally wouldn´t read a blog post with 1000+ words.     And of course I know I could just cut back on my „introduction“ (the ramble that preceeds the valuable content), but I wouldn´t enjoy it half as…

Monthly Recap – Blog Post Topics October 2018

This blog post contains affiliate links and *PR-Samples. Please see disclaimer. October was the month that autumn well and truly arrived in Germany. Up until October 19th it was warm enough to leave the house without a jacket, even in the evenings, something that I only realized when on that day, October 19th, I actually felt a chill walking back to the car with Mr. Loca at 10 pm. Now Germany is not a cold country, but that was unusual.     As it was to be expected, the period…

Caudalie Vinopure Set – Overview

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I have talked about the three different products mentioned here before, and I will make sure to link each individual review as I go on, but I still felt the need to give you an overview of the Caudalie Vinopure Set as well.     Because just like the ingredient list doesn’t tell you the whole story about how a product is going to work, looking at each individual product in a set won’t tell you if the set as a…

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…

Jade Roller – What is it and what does it do?

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Jade roller, facial roller, jade facial massage tool – no matter how you call it, you have heard about it. To be honest, I never really bothered with this trend until I recieved not only one, but two different devices as a GWP and curiosity got the better of me. Of course I had to dig deep, and by dig deep I mean that I didn´t only look at the science behind them, but ventured into topics like crystal healing that I admit I had no…

Caudalie Vinopure Skin Perfecting Mattifying Fluid

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. 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). Why I have…

October Empties 2018 – Taking out the trash 19

This blogpost contains *PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. 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.   CTR, for those of you wondering, means click-through-rate and stands for the number of people that click on the video after seeing the thumbnail. I am not sure why my face would help in selling a video, but I do…

La Roche Posay Serozinc – When in Paris

This blog post may contain affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Whenever I set my foot on french soil, there are three things on my to do list: Eat, visit Sephora and enter a pharmacy to buy a six month supply of La Roche Posay Serozinc.     If you read at least one Beauty Blog, I am sure you already have heard the praise. Everyone keeps talking about this annoyingly hard to get toner, a miracle in a blue spray can. Is it worth the hype?

Taking the day off – my evening skincare routine

While my mornings are all about an efficient, streamlined routine (if you fancy taking a look, click here), in the evenings I really like to take my time. Being a new mum with Mr Loca working crazy hours, this tends to be the me-time I get on an average day and I try to make the most of it. Not in order of appliance (is that even a word?) Wearing SPF and make-up on a (almost) daily base, I make sure to give my skin a proper cleanse. No matter how late it is and how…

Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser – The not so foaming face cleanser

Back in the day, I was all about foaming cleansers. I longed for the squeaky clean feeling they can give you, and if anyone would have told me that the oils on my face were actually important for my skins balance, fighting the signs of aging and protecting it against bacteria I would not have believed it. Looking back, it seems very eighties: Effective, strong, uncompromising. But this is 2014, and my preference has changed. Not only am I no longer wearing neon triangle earrings (I know they are back fashion wise, I just choose to ignore it),…
