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…

Why I don’t run – at least not at the moment

This was supposed to be a blogpost about running. I had it all planned out: How to get motivated, how to build your stamina, which gadgets or apps to use… See, it all started earlier this year. I had been working out pretty consistently over the last months and was really seeing the results. I was actually happy with my body, getting toned and fit. All I wanted was to be a tad bit leaner, just a tiny bit, while continuing to eat all the food obviously. And to achieve…

Caudalie Vinopure Blemish Control Infusion Serum – Two birds, one stone

Multitasking –  I have talked about that numerous times before. It just seems to be a recurrent thing in my life, albeit not always a successful one. Just the other day, running on 1.5 hours of sleep, I tried to multitask feeding the cat and preparing my sons breakfast at the same time.     Well… let’s just put it that way: My son would eat about anything I serve him, the cat is much more picky. Good thing I served the cat first and could quickly switch bowls before…

How to update your skincare routine for fall

This blog post contains *PR-Samples and uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. The weather in Germany took the transition to fall very seriously. Within 24 hours we went from 32 °C and sun to heavy rain, wind and mornings with 6 °C. Needless to say I was busy changing summer bedding to thick duvets, frantically searching for the kids rain boots and getting my skincare routine in order.     Yes, I updated my skincare routine before I even updated my wardrobe (I still have my boots stored away), because #priorities.…
