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…

Instytutum C-Illuminating 3D Moisturizer – Glow

This blog post contains *PR-samples and affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Even though the occasional article might claim that glow is last season and we will venture back into matte skin territory eventually, the plethora of skincare aiming to enhance glow proves otherwise. As someone with oily skin the hunt for glow has always been a mystery to me, even more so these days when the difference between oily AF and metallic highlighter is often undetectable, at least to my eye.     I look for mattifying powders and oil control foundations and I would love to…

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…

pixi Rose Glow Mist – Absynthe

This blog post contains *PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I have never been someone to enjoy alcohol. Not because of health reasons (I mean, I eat a ton of sugary crap without second thoughts, so surely a glass of bubbly wouldn´t really matter). It is just that I simply don´t like the taste. Am I missing out? Maybe. I usually don´t think about that.     But there are a few kinds of alcohol that intrigue me. Not because of the taste, simply because I love the story behind them,…

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…

klairs Soft Airy UV Essence – The best SPF?

This blog post contains PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I recently read a great article on marketing claims on a fellow bloggers website (Skin Care Inspirations). The article was inspired by someone asking her on Instagram why she accepted mineral oil in her skincare if she wouldn´t put it in her salad, which lead to a very interesting read about whether or not natural is always better, especially if you have sensitive skin.     The reason why I link her here is because the klairs Soft Airy…

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…
