Monthly Recap – Blog post topics September 2018

Another Monthly Recap post so soon? Well, the last one (read here) was two weeks late and I don´t like not sticking to my self-inflicted schedule Yes, I know I could just have adapted the schedule, but that is not how I do things.     Anyway, September saw me back to work and, I am not going to lie,  struggling. The problem with being on holiday is that you are away. Which is totally the point, I get it, but leaves so much stuff waiting for you once you return,…

Caudalie Vinopure Clear Skin Purifying Toner – Double Check

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Due to the fact that I do my blog post research half German, half English, things can get a bit confusing. Different regulations depending on whether you are in Europe or in the US, different formulations of your favorite products, even slightly different names which makes SEO a nightmare –  I have seen it all.     But when I did my research for the Caudalie Vinopure Clear Skin Purifying Toner, I had to double check, because the German website read……

My favorite face masks – for the moment

This blog post contains *PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please read disclaimer A beauty lovers heart is fickle, and what is deeply loved one month might be gathering dust just a few weeks later. Believe me, I have been there!     But there are a few items that stay with us for longer, products we reach for over and over again, and now that fall is around the corner and I get the urge to pamper myself, I figured it would be a great time to share my favorite face masks.…

5 hacks for oily skin (that are not skincare)

Oily skin – my biggest issue ever since I was 13 years old. Well, that and acne. And the question why my thighs looked thick in pencil skirts. And why I always seem to fall for the bad guy. But not todays topic, Anne, get back on track! Over the years I have tried countless things to keep my skin balanced, from the “harsh foaming cleanser followed by alcohol toner” routine to several kitchen hacks the friend of a friend (of a friend) had amazing results with.     You Tube wasn´t a thing back then, which…

Monthly Recap: August 2018

Times are busy, and I feel like they get busier every day. Catching up with my favorite blogs daily is something I haven´t been able to do in a long while, and as I figured you are probably in the same boat, I decided to introduce the Monthly Recap series. It is meant to be an overview of all the blog posts I have written, all the videos I have uploaded and a few extra informations thrown in for good measure. To make it easier to find what you are interested in I split…

Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel – Little Mermaid

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I love “The little mermaid” by Hans Christian Andersen. My parents had to read it to me countless times, even though I´d always end up in tears. Mind you, although it is what inspired Disneys “Arielle”, the original story only bares slight resemblance to that movie. It is much darker, full of death and blood and loss.     Ah, you´ve got to love the old stories, told to prepare children for the cruel and dangerous world they were facing! The little…

Odacité Bl+C Pimples Serum – Avicenna

This blogpost contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Given my day job it is no surprise that I read “The physician” by Noah Gordon years ago. In fact, I have read all three novels around the dynasty of the Coles. “Shaman”, the second one, is by far my favorite, while “Choices”, last of the three, is a waste of time. In my opinion, anyway, books are as personal as perfumes. Not that I know a thing about perfumes, but I digress.     Back to topic, or at least back…

Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Pads – Acid Toning Week Part 3

After talking about acid toning in general, my holy grail product (click here) and my recommendation for AHA-newbies (click here), the time has come to introduce you to an alternative which is effective, budget friendly and easy to travel with.     “Easy to travel with” might not be the first thing you look for in a beauty product, but if you are a skincare hoarder lover like yours truly, you will come to the conclusion that with traveling sometimes less is more when it comes to heavy (and sophisticated) glass bottle…

Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner – Acid Toning Week Part 2

If you read Acid Toning Week Part 1 (if you haven’t, click here), you already know, my first acid toner was Alpha H Liquid Gold. I saw results within two weeks, and I had tasted blood. The queen of skincare, Caroline Hirons, recommends acid toning twice daily (of course depending on your skin type and concerns), and as much as I wanted to, I quickly figured out that using Alpha H twice daily would not only leave me broke, but would cause my skin to peel in a very unpleasant…

Alpha H Liquid Gold – Acid Toning Week Part 1

Acid Toning Week – sounds fancy. Like a proper blog theme week. But let´s not get overexcited, shall we? In fact, I just wanted to write about my experiences after introducing acids into my skincare routine about two years ago, and as I have three different on rotation at the moment, I figured, it would just last me a week.     To put it out there: I had never even heard about acid toning until 2012. Shocking, I know. Of course, Salicylic and Lactic Acid were no strangers to…
