How to choose the best cleanser for your skin type

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST USES AFFILIATE LINKS AND CONTAINS PR-SAMPLES (GIFTED ITEMS). I RECEIVED NO MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER. I don´t say that very often, but back when I was young, some things were definitely easier. Not in everyday life (no cell phones, no internet – I used to navigate foreign streets with paper maps the size of a restaurant table), but when it came to buying skincare products. Facial cleansers for example. Not that they were better back then – if your skin wasn´t dry…

Which ingredients work for anti aging?

ADVERTISEMENT INFO: THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS *PR-SAMPLES (GIFTED ITEMS) AND USES AFFILIATE LINKS. I DID NOT RECEIVE ANY MONEY TO WRITE IT. PLEASE READ DISCLAIMER.   If I had one cent for every time I get asked this question: “Which ingredients really work for anti aging?” I´d have, well, maybe a few Euro already. Which is a pretty anticlimactic introduction, really, to stress the fact that I do get asked this question a lot. And I get it, with marketing claims getting stranger by the minute and a new it-ingredient…

Well, this one doesn´t. But it does come from my damaged skin barrier, and I think in this case that is even better. You see, I know that I test a lot of different products. I also know that testing a lot of different products is a sure way to damage my skin barrier. So I am extra…

Cosmeceutical products – Do you need them?

Advertisement information: This blog post contains paid for content. Links used may be affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. I admit I have a weakness for sciencey stuff. And by sciencey stuff I don’t mean “real science” (whatever that may be), but things like cosmeceutical products. (I even wrote about that before) Now before you come at me, I am not telling you that there is a valid reason to my fascination. I indeed intend this blog post to be a confession, which pretty much gives away that there is NO…

Double Cleansing – Is it good for you?

Advertisement info: This blog post uses affiliate links and features PR-Samples (gifted items). Please read disclaimer. Talking about skincare online is tricky. On the one hand it is amazing to find likeminded people that share your passion, on the other hand things can leave the “passionate” level pretty quickly and turn into an online war if specific topics are brought to the table. And one of the topics is Double Cleansing.     Something like a simple Skincare Routine post on your Instagram feed, bottles carefully decorated in a way…
