When should I start using anti-aging products

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. After I filmed the video on “How to build a basic skincare routine”, a common question I got was: When should I start using anti-aging products? Can starting too soon be harmful? Which age will be too late?     As always, there is no one size fits all answer. The skincare you need is much more determined by your concerns and your lifestyle than it is by the age in your passport! Starting really early won´t damage your skin –…

Low Buy 2019 – The first month

This blog post uses affiliate links and features PR-Samples, which classifies as advertisement. Please read disclaimer. So, that low buy thing… How has it been going so far? Well, thank you for asking! Pretty good, actually. I admit I feel a little envious about all of you that finished a No Buy January and now are back in the game, credit card in hand, but if I am completely honest, I don´t  really need anything. (Read about my Low Buy 2019 rules here)     Which is actually not entirely true: I…

New Skincare Releases – What is worth buying?

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Anzeige. You know what the hardest part of a low-buy is? You actually can’t just go out and just buy all the things that tickle you’re fancy. Okay, I should have known that before I declared my Low-Buy 2019 on the blog, and obviously I DID know that, but I didn’t know just how hard it would be! I developed a habit of keeping up with new releases over the last year, a great thing for a beauty blogger, but not exactly…

THE INKEY LIST Rosehip Oil – For the soul

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Once the New Year Excitement has worn off, all we are left with is the cold, dark and grey reality of winter in Germany. No snow covered slopes to brighten the outdoors here, at least not on a regular!     When going outside seems to be no fun at all, and you need not only protective layers of clothing, but also protective layers for your soul. Now don´t tell me you don´t know what I am talking about, chocolate is…

Oskia Perfect Cleanser – Wool

This blogpost contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. It is no secret that I love my knitwear. Scarves, cardigans, you rarely see me without them once the temperature drops below 20 °C. The love for knits runs deep in my family, my mother supplying us with an abundance of handmade garments, dressing my children as well as myself. The one exception? My sister. She loves a chunky knit as much as I do, don´t get me wrong. But she can´t stand the feeling of wool against her skin. Doesn´t matter…

How to build a basic skincare routine

This blog post uses affiliate links and *PR-Samples. Please read disclaimer. It is no secret that I love testing new skincare, and while I am not invested in the famous 10 step Korean regimen, I admit that there are nights that I am not far from using that amount of products. It is no secret either that I am not a fan of clutter and wastage, and you don´t have to be a genius to see that this combination can easily lead to trouble. I mean, I do only have…

Best of Beauty 2018 – My skincare and makeup favorites

This blog post contains PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. When I wrote my post on „How to accept failure“, I got a ton of lovely comments telling me to focus on all the things I had achieved in 2018 instead of dwelling on what hadn´t worked as planned.     Great advice indeed, so let´s put things into perspective and see what amazing new beauty items I discovered in 2018 because of blogging. I mean, would I really slather so much stuff on my face, constantly switching to…

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…

Monthly Recap – Blog Post Topics December 2018

And just like that, another month has passed, and with this, 2018 comes to an end. Did it drag on? Did it fly by? I have heard both. But I am not here today to reflect on the year that passed, no. I want to talk about the month that ends today, my hectic and sugar filled December.     Although maybe hectic isn´t the right word (sugar filled is, no denying that). Maybe eventful is more fitting, given that I thoroughly enjoyed every event I attended, Christmas related or…

THE INKEY LIST Q10 – Understatement

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I admit, most company claims make me roll my eyes to the back of my head. Products allegedly shaving years of your face, singlehandedly tightening the skin around your jaw line so you look like your teenage self while transforming your undereyes from “Tired mom on a Monday” to “Bombshell on a tropical vacation” – I have seen it all.     What I haven´t seen that often though is a product that comes with reasonable claims that are, actually, an understatement! Like,…
