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,…

My One 24 h Anti-Aging System – AD

Advertisment: This blog post contains paid for content. All opinions are my own. Anzeige: Dieser Blogpost enthält Werbung. Meine Meinung wurde dadurch nicht beeinflusst. We all know I love trying new skincare brands, so when I got the opportunity to work with the German skincare brand “My One” by Dr. Klein on the release of their new My One 24 h Anti-Aging System, I jumped at the chance.     This blog post will give you an overview over the products, prices and claims, it is not an in-depth review…

THE INKEY LIST Collagen Serum – Names

This blogpost contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Unicorn tears – if a brand decides to name their products like that, they lost me as a customer for sure. I prefer a less romantic, more to the point approach, which is why I get along so very well with The Ordinary products: The name is what is inside the bottle. Fancy? No. But easy to work with for sure!     I recently learned the hard way though that seemingly straight forward names can be misleading! You see, when I…

Winter skincare tips – How to get glowing skin in winter

This blog post may contain affiliate links and *PR-Samples. Please read disclaimer. After what seems to have been the shortest fall in history, the cold and harsh winds are upon us. Cold and harsh are of course widely exaggerated if I compare my comfortable home in Heidelberg, Germany to where my brother in law lives, up North in Norway, but it is still cold enough for my skin to need special treatment.     So while I take care of body and soul with cozy knits and hot chocolate (a…

Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm – Late to the party

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I don´t always publish my reviews “on time”, but this has to be the biggest delay ever. Seriously, I have been planning to write about the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm for more than six years!     Six years? Yes! See, like most of us I debated whether or not I should start a blog for quite a bit before publishing my first post. And even before I had decided on a blog name, I was sure to write about the…

Instytutum Skincare Rebranded – Is it still as good?

Products mentioned in this post are PR-Samples. Please read disclaimer. It is always bitter sweet if a brand decides to invent themselves new and reformulate all their products, isn’t it? If you have been around here for a little while, you might have heard me talk about Instytutum. This Swiss brand, founded by Natalia Derkach (a fellow doctor) claims to offer “result driven skincare” and presents itself with sleek, almost clinical packaging.     You know I am all about skincare giving results, and I found quite a few products…

Monthly Recap – Blog Post Topics November 2018

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. November is done and dusted, and tomorrow will be the day I get the boxes with Christmas decoration from the basement and start randomly putting them on available surface spots. Not kidding here, I am a lost cause when it comes to decorating, no matter how much Inspiration Boards I have on Pinterest. But I am making an effort, for the kids mostly, as I want them to embrace the spirit of the season.     While we get all festive…

THE INKEY LIST Caffeine Serum – Are you extra?

  Ths blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer Now if the use of a separate eye cream is already controversial, how about using a specific serum before that? I can already see online wars raging over unexpecting blogs, fighting for wether or not the extra expense is worth it or just, well, extra.     I won´t take a stand on that today (you know I even deny the need for a separate moisturizer on my skin most of the year), but instead just present you with some…

Skincare gift guide for mature skin

This blog post contains affiliate links and *PR-Samples. Please read disclaimer. The older we become, the harder it gets to buy presents for us, I admit that. Take me as example: I try to be more minimalistic in my way of living (the emphasis being on “try” here), which rules out decorative stuff, I like to read, but get my books at our local library and already own more makeup than any sane person would ever need. So what on earth should you get me?     Events are of course a welcome surprise,…

Does blue light from our screens damage our skin?

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I love it when I get questions from you guys. Not only do they help me create content I know you’ll be interested in, but they open my eyes to topics I would probably not even have thought about. Of course I had heard about blue light affecting our sleep patterns and straining our eyes, but to be honest I never gave it much thought.     At least not until a question kept popping up here on the blog and…
