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…

pixi Rose Cream Cleanser – A rose

This blogpost contains *PR-samples and affiliate links. Please read disclaimer.   “A rose is a rose is a rose…” I bet you have heard that before. The sentence was written by Gertrude Stein as part of her poems. It is often interpreted as meaning “things are what they are”, a statement of the law of identity. In Stein’s view, the sentence expresses the fact that simply using the name of a thing already invokes the imagery and emotions associated with it.     But I bet you are not here for an…

Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. 2007 German government decided that smoking in public buildings would be banned. That included pubs, restaurants and cafés, basically everywhere food was served and consumed. I was 20 in 2007, and hanging out in pubs was much more common for me than nowadays. Even though I didn´t smoke myself, I was never bothered by friends or strangers smoking in my presence. Until the day I learned how much better I felt the next morning if I hadn´t been surrounded by smoke…

Droste-Laux She.Tox Alkaline Facial Cleanser – Detoxification

This blog post contains PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please see disclaimer. If you have been around for some time, you know that “detox” is a word that drives me nuts. That goes a little against zeitgeist, I know, but is funded in my medical training and general skepticism. See, your body has numerous ways of getting rid of toxins, and unless you have a medical condition, your liver and kidneys do all the detoxification you need. It is sensible though to stop putting potentially harmful stuff into and onto your…

Doctor Duve Glowskin Glycolic Rich Cleanser

This post contains PR-samples and affiliate links. Please see disclaimer. Given that I am a full time working mother of two, my mornings are usually pretty relaxed. And I am well aware that a morning skincare routine like mine (read here if you are curious), though already streamlined, is not possible for someone with little to no help. In case you didn´t know, we live in a shared house with my parents, as one big family, and as my parents take the kids to daycare after breakfast, I can get…

erborian Solid Cleansing Oil – Scents

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please see disclaimer Are you a perfume girl? I most definitely am not. I struggle to even remember to apply it once in the mornings, let alone reapply throughout the day. My collection consists of three bottles, and only two get used regularly. So it is safe to say, I am not your best bet when it comes to describing scents.   How does that smell? –Nice. Story of my life.     When reading up on the erborian Solid Cleansing Oil, someone mentioned…

Wishtrend Green Tea & Enzyme Powder Wash – Just my take

This blog post contains PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please see disclaimer. I know I start most reviews with a little story, but things will be different this time. I just had too much to say about the product itself and didn´t want to waste your precious time. So, the product. The Wishtrend Green Tea & Enzyme Powder Wash *. I have to admit I had a hard time with this product.     It starts with the mixing. The cleanser is a powder cleanser you need to freshly prepare by…

EVE LOM Cleanser – Mediation

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please see disclaimer.   Have you ever heard about mediation? No, I am not missing a t in the word. Mediation means you work with two different sides, usually people in a conflict and try to get them to common ground. Take a divorce with kids involved for example. Mediation will help the conflicting parties, the parents in this case, work out their issues with a professional to actually achieve a fair and manageable separation. But because the topic of divorced parents isn´t a…

Tata Harper Purifying Cleanser

Let me take you way back in time, when we had only one continent, mammoths would roam the fields of grass and I was a little girl just turned 13. It was the night after a long and exhausting week at school (ha, little did I know!) and I had decided, all mature and grown up, that I would run a bath for relaxation. And because I was lacking the fancy salts and scented candles I had glimpsed on tv (I told you it was long ago), I grabbed the…

Nip + Fab Glycolic Cleansing Fix – Advertising exaggerations

Advertising means exaggerating, I get that. But how much is too much? Ever since I visited the Nip + Fab homepage to learn more about the ingredients and claims of the Nip + Fab Glycolic Cleansing Fix, the Kylie Jenner quote that greeted me has been stuck in my head: “I love the glycolic range! I´ve been using the cleanser non-stop”.     Non-stop? Really? 24 hours non-stop? Or just every morning and night? Because one would probably indicate a mental disorder, while the other one would just be very…
