pixi T Zone Peel Off Mask Review – Maybe this time…

Advertisement info: This blog post contains PR-Samples (gifted items) and affiliate links. I received no money to write it. Please read disclaimer. One of the perks of running a beauty blog is being sent stuff to test. The worst part of running a beauty blog though is being sent stuff to test. Confused much? Hear me out. I will explain using the pixi T Zone Peel Off Mask as example.  I mean, everybody gets the “perks” part. New skincare arriving at your door step every month, what´s not to love?…

Peter Thomas Roth Rose Stem Cell Mask – Magic bullet

This blog post uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. In medicine, there is the term “magic bullet”. It refers to the ONE pill/treatment/procedure that will singlehandedly cure a severe illness. Once in a while something new comes along, shows promising results in the first studies, hopes get high… until time (and more research) shows, that it might be, indeed, a great addition to the existing procedures, but not the “Magic bullet” we secretly hoped for.     Sadly (shh, don´t tell my daughter) that is not the kind of magic…

Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask – Cucumber Man

This blogpost uses affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. One of the few ads from my youth that did stick with me was for cigarettes. It was after the Marlboro Man had ridden off into the eternal sun set and PR companies had realized that it was, indeed, time for a new take on manliness and smoking. So they introduced the Cucumber Man, a smart looking guy wearing yoghurt on his face and two slices of cucumber to cover the eyes. He did, of course, laugh and smoke and managed to…

Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask – Is this fall I smell?

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Is it too early to think about fall? Rhetorical question, of course. YES! IT IS! Leave me to my beach sunsets, my coconut scented sun cream and my “too hot to sleep so I´ll dance the night away” nights.     Not that I have many of those, mind you, but I could have, in a parallel universe where I am awake after 10 pm. Ah, back in the days… Where was I? Fall. Or at least the prospect of fall,…

May Lindstrom Honey Mud – Victorian literature

This blog post contains affiliate links. Please read disclaimer. Do you read the Brontë sisters? I admit I have a weakness for Victorian literature, ever since I first started Jane Eyre on a rainy autumnal afternoon. Of course I wouldn’t want to actually live in this epoche, but books tend to skim over things like Womens Rights, health care and poverty and instead focus on haunted mansions, horses and unfulfilled, but fiery love.       And, especially with the Brontë sisters, on nature. Roses, the endless moor and storm…

pixi Glow O2 Oxygen mask – Ox and horn

This blog post contains *PR-Samples and affiliate links. Please see disclaimer.   In Germany there is a saying that indicates the impossibility of getting a reaction from someone. Roughly translated it means: “Like pinching an ox in the horn.” I often think about this saying when I try to get a reaction from my husband regarding new lipsticks, nail polish choices or truly anything makeup related. In fact I was sure that no matter what I´d do, he´d always look at me and say: “Whatever.”     Turns out I…

klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E mask – Summer Sins

Nothing beats a week or two away from the office, better yet away from home. Or, at best, out of the country, at the sea side, enjoying sand, sun and surf. Have I told you that I did surf, many years ago, on the Australian shore? Not riding big waves surf though, more desperately trying to stay above the water surf, but still. I felt like a real surfer chick back then, sun burnt nose and salty hair included.     If I happened to have a sun burnt nose…

The Body Shop Superfood face masks – Good enough to eat?

If you did watch my blog from August, you´ll know that I visited The Body Shop for the launch of the new Superfood Face masks. And of course I had to pick up one. Or two. Okay. Make it three. And samples of the remaining ones, so I can say I have tried every new face mask they launched. All in the name of science, of course.     The main thing I noticed upfront is that all of them smell and look delicious. I wouldn´t recommend eating them though,…

Face masks – All you need to know

When I asked in my recent videos which topic you would want to hear more about, sheet masks were highly requested. But as sheet masks on their own are not that big of a topic, I decided to film a video about face masks in general, with a special emphasis on sheet masks. Oh, and with bloopers.

Glam Glow Supermud Clearing Treatment – Pickup lines

Back in the days when I was still going out, I had my fair share of bad pickup lines. You see, being blonde, tall and obviously loving makeup, I attracted a certain kind of men. Men that usually didn’t expect me to have more interest in politics than handbags. Men that thought: “Hello Sexy!” was actually a great way to start a conversation. (Disclaimer: It isn’t!)     Well, these days are long gone. If I was to go out right now, I would be much more likely offered a chair…
