Indie Lee Blemish Lotion – Marriage

This blogpost uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Being a married couple comes with changes in a relationship. Gone are the days when I focussed on freshly shaved legs and fluttery lashes even for a Sunday morning breakfast in bed. My husband has seen my at my best, but has also seen me at my worst. After giving birth for example, or when I had a bad case of vomiting. Even worse, when the kids were vomiting and I was puked on head to toe. Ah, momlife…     How much the…

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…
